Infidel Meeting at National Hall, Laat Sabbatll Evening Some two or three wrrln ago, we gave a report of a meeting of this now Beet, and we have mow to describe a f urther gathering, which took place on Sunday afternoon, in the large room at National Hall. There were present some three score, in cludiug four or fitre females, one of whom appear ed to take an active part in the management of the afTiirs there discussed. A Dr. Hull openedthebusiucss, by delivering a lecture outhe progress of civilization, in which he contended that the Bible was so full of errors nnd contradictions, that there would be no crcdit, even t? au uninspired writer, to have been the author of it; that commentators and reverend writers on it, would not listen to reason in the dis cussion of its improbabilities, and could rarely be got to admit its imperfections, with the exception of two divines, viz t the late Dr. Ciianning, and the present Dr. Dowey. The Swedenborgiau doc trine, indeed, declared that it was imperfect; but to admit that doctrine would be more uphill work than even the present Christian religion. Bat since it is so difficult, when the Bible is criticised and analfbed in the same spirit as other bork?, to comprehend and reconcile its differences, how is it we find so many priests to uphold it 1 Thu truth was that they were well paid for it; fat alaries were poured in on them. What makes every dootrine clear ? About two hundred pounds u year. The Btate of civilization of that tribe calling themselves in the ancient times " the chosen tribe," was, evidently, but little advanced, aa ap peared by their backwardness in the arts, sciences, and more particularly, in their form of govern ment. The degrees of civil.zition to which a na tion had arrived, were always indicated by their form of government. In thelo>vestcondition,weliud polities aud religion joined ; in the 3nd, a prieatiy or ec clesiastical government; in the 3rd, the psliticti and ecclesiastical divided ; 4.h, a one man power or king ; in the Aih. a mixed government, with the elective franchise restricted, influence of population increased, arts, agri culture snd aims attain to perfection, great personal free dom, though still the priests retain power, as in England; in the 8th stage, the popular voice discover their rights, a republican government takes |lice, and man has now attained the greatest freedom we know of, both personal ly und politically, entirely at liberty, save interfering with the rights ol others, and with no more taxation save such as is ab:olutely neemwary lor the administration of government Such is the government of the United State*. In this stage, religion is separated entirely Irom govercinent. The opinions ol men on this subject are so various and extended, that under a republ can form it would be impossible to mingle a religious ruitrict^pn. The influence of priests has alwsys b.en greater over women than men?it his been said, that a* the apostles were delegated to be fi .hers ef men, so have their toilow erj degenerated into Ushers of women. They generally time their visits when husband* and brothers are absent, and 'tis strauge men should ?o give up their natural right to protect and watoh over those they have sworn so to do. What are the mentis of the clergy?does not their character stink in the nostrils ef public o[ ini >n 1 When their actions and thought* are laid bare, what are they 7 Look at them, and note the long lift of reverend delin quents, fiom Avery down to the Oaderdonhs. If there J* but a shadow of reason for the accusations brought against them, whit a picture it presents. The Isratlirud of old were in the 2nd stage of civil.zatlon; tbiy were un der the diieotion of a High Pritst, whs was consulted on all occasions, and implicitly obeyed, because be prefaced his directions with the words "Thus, saith the Lord."; They were a mire barbarous and uociviliied people than is generally suppot d j witness the laws of Mose? chit fly directed toward* their person*! habits and dross Their consciences were entirely in the keeping of the priests, whom-.hty wore perfect slaves to. II a man was netray ed into vowing anything to the Loid, he hud little chance of rescuing it Irom the hands ol the priest*, even wore it'a human aicrtf?- Wituess tho sacrifice of the daughter by Jepthah. and wherefore the extreme anxiety of the priesthood to exact even np to a fellow being's life, lor the purpose ef striking terror into the people and keeping theai In their errors, as is clclily piov-.d by various texts in the Bible How great must have bean the debasement ofhuman nature to autrait to there things The D.ctor then went on tn compare the warfare of the Jews, ss related in the Bible, with that of the African* ef the prosent day, as detailed by Major Harris in his work on Africa ; and urgued liosa the similarity of their mod.!*, that their social state mutt have been equally sunk in brutality as tho o ot t!io Africans of the present day aie kuowntobe; and concluded by comparing the pri*?t hooJ of the present day to the necromancy o: the ancients, and lio;>ed that this delusion would pass uwey ss thnthan done, und indu'grd in the anticipation ot his sudiriice and sect beeemli g yet tho true and accepted tear hers ot science, reason Hud'ptiilosophy. This lecture elicited considerable applause f;otn his au dience, nail at the conclusion cfit. Mr. Vale proposed a collection shonl 1 betaken uj (or the purpose ot paying the expeose of th* roojo. Tne ladies he said were admit ted tree?, but the gen'lemen were oxpccted t.i pay 6j cet.is each, which having been done, a meeting was organ iia to elect delegates to attend the Convention to he hi Id next tunJay, at the Coliseum. After mu:h discission, and the exhibition of soma feelli g among the member.', they fl jally concurred in the clec un of twenty delegates to attend the (Jrand Convention, where, doubtless, the unit ed wisdom of these erudi e gentry will, by their delibera tions, set la motion the entno regeneration ol this mil taken world. Mcamerlera and Infidelity?Lecture of O. S. Fow.er at Clinton Hall?l'be Origin of Life?Ulan a Galvanic Mattery. Od Thursday evening last, we attended Mr. O. 8 F.w let's first lecture at Clinton Hall, on that toysteiiiui, wonderful, and sublime science, called Mesnwrum His audience was small but veiy selcct, the msjoruy being la lies? (by the way it is ctiriou* to see how the lair daughters of Eve s'iil long alter the maivellous and for bidden.)* The learned orator In his peculiarly impressive man ner, so well adapted to the mysterious nature of his subj>*rt, commenced by stating in broad term?, some startling and novel i lea* in relation to the Origin cf Life. Wengurd theae views as peculiar, and de.-erving the a'tonii^n of the piou ? and religioua portion ol our renders, as they wilibe seen to bj at war Willi the doctrinea and precept* inculcated by the wise and bnrntd doctor* ol tne ?ge. Tne lectursr began by s yiig-We know what life it by observation and experience, but bow ant! why it is has ever remained an impenetrable secret of nature which the human mind has hereto'ore failed in discovering? wo find, however.nature in all her operations, works by means? me,us which are 11 * ays capable of producing the end designed So fsr well?but now comei a propu position whick all must see is pla'nly infllel. Tno lec turer sta'ing in plain terma his be-llel that in the beginning, Deity, after having endowed the finely diffused atoms which floated in infinite space with certain piopurties aud laws, left them to tske care of themselves. And these chaotic particles, by virtuo ot their attribates alone, pro duced tho present earth. Thise attributes or Isws ware galvanirm and electricity, which are one an 1 the tarns thing as magnetisn-which Is the orlgiu of life?of ani mal ant vegetable life - beginning at the lowest and mast Iiiimetlve lype. and aicending up to man. Idonotbe ieve (end Mr. Fowler) tast Deity specially superintends the ope; ntions of nature; but that mugnetl.m supports the earth in its journey, upholds the volar system, and g.vss war .iith snd nourishment to sll keings. it is the cause of light snd heat, and it is an atcir;alu>dfact that galvanism (which is only another name far magnetism) will cctue vegetables to grow and flourish?it will therefore make ammils grow, betwen whom and vegetables a wonder ful analogy exists The leaves of vegetable* correspond ing with the lungs df animals?we ai*o flud thatveg?'ta bi< a have the aaino circulatory apparatus as animal*? the same respiratory organs?the *amo in piinciple, and both need food and Lourishment; what ia tne ot th* lower order of animals m also tiui of irun. F.very hi" man being is but a galvanic battery; hi* two Intcrnalsind external-rur Lcrs ol m'icou* membrann and the epidermis corrcapend ing to the two surfaces ot ?,?nc nnd copper In tfcs battory. Both are affscted.by the state of the atmosphere-?a vlgo rous condition of which sends t- * n-echine on with plan sure, and vice versa. Mr fowled now eTert'l :o apply tho galvanic battery to any one of the andienee. A ?e?v tlemau stepped forward, and 'oek held of the vires. D ?ej it hnrt you now, sir'' No. Doi a it now (giving the lustramct increase'! ptmer). No. Now? Yes?yes, oh' yes I should think it did, screamed the pa tient. Mr. Fowler now tried another experiment with the horse shoe magnet, but tailing to produce tlie desired ?! feet, contested he had not thoroughly examined hia sub ject, hut lelt (to use his own teim) somewhat flustered Hh would proceed, however, to human magnetiim, aud wUhed to nat-* his Arm belie! in clairvoyance, and his opinion that all diseases which arise trom an unequal dis trihution of the ma^neli; fl lid, may be cured by ruanipu lations, where he explained the operation in a ve-y scien tific manner. I wi?h to state a fact, said Mr Fowler, gleaned Irom ex perienoe. If you wish to stop hunger, jon have only to lay your linger on tho organ of alim-ntivenefS, nnd prese hard against It.

The horses and figures seem galvan'zed into their posi tions, and there is no apparent evidence that they ever intend altering them. We sincerely regret that Mr. It has not been more cautious.

The Yankees, instead of adopt ing the New York fashion of moving on May day, move just when they please, summer or winter; and to my notion that is much the best way. There is, however, a good deal of this upon May day here, erpecially in the morning, when the fair sex and their admirers troop off into the country, on horseback, on toot, or in vehicles, in puauit of flowers- URh! Flowers tuch a day as this! One might a** well look for them in the inidst of a Si berian winter. Here and there, you may see un apiicot tree 111 bloom upon the 1st of May, but the flowers are not so green aa to show their heads yet a while.
