The Association met at ten this morning, and were busied for half an hour with the usual routine business. A few slight alterations being made in the record of the minutes, The Secrktary again suggested to gentlemen who hud puiiers for reading before the Society, that it would prove n matter of great convenience to have th?n filed, and acconi|>anicd with an abstract lor the use of the Secretary in making out the minutes. Professor Hitchcock recommended that gentle men would confine themselves to reading an epitome of their several treatises; they would probably be numerous, and therefore time would scarcely permit their being presented at length to the Society. Dr. Barratt read a paper entitled "Evidences of Congelation in the Red Sandstone, exhibited by regular triangular and rhombic marks, of great dis tinctness." After noticing the bearing of this conge lation question on the temperature of the earth, at die earlier periods of animal life, and his finding ice in the form of rhombs and triangles, in February, 1W1, lie added, in regard to the sandstone, that the marks were produced by a pressure of lines in cor responding tigures when in a soft state. Por a long time he had recorded every appearance of ice, lor the purpose of throwing light ui^n the i^st acuoii ot congelation iu the production of these imprints in rock*. Dr. Barrett concluded by inviting 8?"tle men to accompany him to a building alluded to by him, where certain marks were to be seen, in va rious forms, and which he regarded as decidedly of I Jr., arose to say, that in certain aofi argillaceous beds in Pennsylvania he had observed marks such as described by Dr. Barrett, but he did | not ascribe it to the same causes, but rather regard ed it as the effect of causes which act in the forma tion of such species of rocks. , Mr. Johnston thought that the rhomboidal struc I ture talked of by Dr. Barrett was entirely distinct from that alluded to by Mr. Silhman. | Thep?.?Et!ukedfcr. B. if he regarded the triangu lar diagram as possessing any thing peculiar, he ob | served that he had represented them a* of about 60 de I ^Dr! Bi**iTT replied he took no measurement-he had taken a sketch of them at random. Prof. Shkfabd said the measurement was a matter oi importance; for his part he was not satisfied with the ex , planation given of those marks, for at the supposed time of their formation, he thought the temperature of the earth was much higher than was essential to Dr. B. a hypotlie ""ilr BiaaATT observed that he had anticipated some op position, and had taken care to make a long series of me teorological observations, which he would bo happy to show to any gentlemon ; at present ho had Uiem not with h"l'rof. Silliha* was glad to hear the remarks of Dr. B., but thought that they could not afford so much time in sacculation, there being many things of at least equal im portance to take up; besides, if they devoted too much time to it. they might freeze themselves. _ A Mcmbkr assured Dr. B. tliat no opposition was given to his theory more than that which was requisite and usu al to test any hypothesis brought before the Association. He would move that the Chair should tee to pursue the investigation and report tho result to "'"Tho Chai* nominated Prof. Hitchcocx, Dr. Ba?*att, and Mr. RitDntLD, and .o the quesUon drom?e(L Mr. James D. Dana read an essay " On the orgin ot the consUtuent and adventitious minerals of trap and the al lied rocks." This paper was so long and elaborate, and the language ao technical, that it !? hardly practicable to ?t Sthe wish of the business committee to nrocecd with the reading of all those papers and leave the whole open to discussion at once. The next l,aP*]f'? " On the nature of minerals accompanying trap dj kes which intellect various rocks." .... . . .. . Dr. Jacsson proceeded with his statement, which, he said ho desired to mako an appendix to that Ju,t rea.d the trap rocks. Some interesting facts were 'tated by him in relation to the different kinds of minerals which were found at the places of contact of these intrusive trap rocks, with limestone, sandstone, and calcareous spar. He also stated that phosphate was found to exist in sea water although the fact of its existence there, and of its being osscntial to the osseous part of the structure of arU| was overlooked by naturalists. Professor Siia-iman, in making a few "marks suggest ed by the statements of Dr. Jackson, exhibited some rich and massive specimens of copper ore, found at the place of iu contact with trap recks. One speci men was from Lake Superior, another from Connecticut, a short distance from New Haven, wha^'. neriod a mass of the purest copper, weighing lOOIbs , ww found by a mechanic of New Haven, and used for purposes of his business for a long Ume. Tho P*r.siDfc*T read a communication from the Secre tary gi ving a statement of the expenses to be paid at this session.ana which, by an article d the Constitution was to be dofrayed by assessment on individual members. On motion to that effect, the assessment, amounting to *3 ahead, was paid down by the members. Professor Sillima* drew tho attention of the ^iety to the first volume of the transactions of the Society which had been ju,t published, and passed * t,a"' ,0?? eulogium upon the work, observing-not, he said, that they were constrained to go to Europe for a proper estl mation of their own books?that, both here and1 ?oraed1 it had been pronounced by the ablest men as a . doing credit to this country.

HaLV-PAST 'J O'CLOCK. Tho r?> ?ii)itiT stated the subject* prescribed by tho bnsluos* committeo fortbe remainder of tho day. Professor Joiimsto* offered the following rciolution : "Resolved, That committee* may bo appointed from year in the vicinity of all the principal Northern riven emptying into the Atlantic Ocean from the territory of tho United State*, to make tho necessary measurements and eaperiments, and to ascertain, m accurately as may be, the amount of icdimentary matter annually carried by them into tho ocoan." Proft-ssor Dtwri thought it would be better to defer the nomination of the committee till next day. Professor 1/oomi' nna of opinion#hat it would be more desirable to appoint a committee at once. Profe**or Oi.Mnrro suggested that the better way would be to appoint ft committeo composed of a limited number, with power to ftdd to their number. Prnfr??or Johnstois, at tho suggestion of the Chair, withdrew tho motion for tho present. Professor Dawr.r nroso to rend a paper " On tho Oyp ?urn of the State of Now York." These rock*, he said, occupied a great extent among the upper transition rock*, and in maases of dift>rent sizes, imbedded in tho rock* sometime*, partially chrystaliicd, at other* ?o well a* to be beautiful silenite. Ili* principal object was to dwell upon the rocks with which it associated. Tho general oninion was that it OOCUpied a line by itself, wherea* the fact was that it waa found in isolated masse* in other sort* of rock ; thorefore, when ho spoke of gy p ?um. he did not speak of it as a stratum, although he might do *o of the gypsj ferous earth. When common people namo objects not known to them, they must do so in accordance with some obvious quality, or appear ance, or association : so gypsum wu called ashes. One peculiarity in it is, tliat wherever found, the rock over it waa curved; and when in contact with limestone, tho latter was cracked in small pieces, giving color to tho notion of the common people, that it was still up-heaving. After stating numerous fact* in proof that gypium was not of a continuou* formation, or connected stratum, he alluded to some plausible theories m to ita formation. Some accounted for it through the presence of sulphu rite of calcium, but this he discarded, a* no auch sub stance was to be found in the earth -it w as to bo had only in the laboratory of the chemist; others associated its origin with chrj stalization. As to the curves and cracks, which suggested tho idea of upheaving, he was more disposed to attribute it to the settling of the mass on looso earth after solidification, as the settling would present the same appearance. After making seve ral other remarks, tho Speaker said that he did *o lor the purposo of bringing tho subject before the Socioty, for the purpose of ascertaining tho position if gypsum wore the same in other placos. Tho FaatiDiRT inviteil members to state whatever facts they were acquainted with; but no communication being made on the subject, Dr. Jacasoi arose and addressed the meeting on the Barometer. He set out with stating that no instrument was usually more imperfect than the barometer, and the price wm tk th? ipveise proportion to ita perfection. Tboie procured Tor the use of the N. K. Survey from England were not true; although thoso imported from that country were much better than thoie made in the United tttatet, whilst the French were still more valua ble. Then followed a description of a simple contrivance for serving all the purposes sought to ue secured by the barometers now in use, and submitted an unfinished specimen of the instrument. It consisted of a glass tube about two inches long and one and a fourth inch in di ameter-, to one end was attached, by a screw, a cylindri cal receptacle of bell metal to hold the mercury, to which again was attached another tube in the shape of an inverted cove, covered by a leather cover, and through this operated the pressure of the atmosphere. The up)ier portions of the structure were described in detail and were exceedingly simple, and probably for that not the less perfect Dr. J. acknowledged the aid afforded to him in his troublesome experiment to make a good barometer to Mr. J. H. Temple, of Boston, whoso skill in brass work was not to be exceeded in any country. A Member?What will bo tho cost of these baromo tors ? l>r. Jacxio*?Sixty dollars?the sum charged for those now in use, and which are worth nothing. Dr. J. ended by advising scientific men to keep perfect instru ments, as their results were sure and satisfactory, whilst bad ones were an endless source of annoyance and er ror. lie was sure that an average of ten measurements of the altitude of a mountain barometrically would be found more accurate than if ilono trigonometrically. Professor Olmsted begged to sny that the thanks of the Association, and of the country, were due to| Dr. J. for the pains taken by him to improve the barometer, and also for instructing an able mechanic iu his improvements, who would furnisn the country with what was so much wanted?a perfect specimen of this useful instrument. This subject having dropped, the President advised tho meeting to resume the inquiry on the minerals asso ciated with trap rocks, which had been already before them. Professor Rooers first rose to the question. He did not conceive tho possibility of external, waters permeating through the solid bed of rocks ; and where wells and de posits of waters were found in strata of rocks, he thought it would be found to be of the precise kind, and a portion of those waters in which the particles of the substances were first deposited ; as, for instance, tho brine wells found in part of the State of New York, were portions of tho ancient ocean, displaced by these deposites. The idea of currents of water from the surface of the earth, or the air, passing into solid stata, ho could not at all un derstand. He did not mean to deny the existence of hy drous minerals ; that was one motlo of segregation ; but there were mineral solutions of igneous as well as aque ous origin. What he meant was, that where these were found, the water containing them was as old as the mat ters they hold in solution. Mr. J. D. Dana explained some views expressed in the morning in relation to this topic. Mr. Stkfhkn Reed, Dr. Jacrson, and Professor Shep herd, spoke briefly. The latter expressed his belief that the question on which they were now engaged was like the great one of corpuscular action, full ordifftculty; and whilo he thanked Mr. Dana for bringing up the matter in the form he did, he begged to be excused if he stated some of the obstacles to belief in his views. Professor S. then repeated in detail some incongruities in the reasons given for the origin of these mineral waters in rocks by Mr. D. and others. ? Professor Silliman, after a few remarks In illustration, thought that we were yet far off a proper appreciation of tho immense forces?such as fire, water, pressure, 8cc.? which are in activo operation in this globe, and which are constantly engaged in tho production of vast changes and effects in tho elements composing its mass. Yet the nge, the efforts being made, the importance of the investiga tion, promised that, at no distant period, an approxima tion, far in advance of our present position, would be made to a proper appreciation of these powers. Next in order was an address, by S. S. Hai.deman, "On a modification of the Newtonian chromatic wheel, and its Application to the analysis and nomenclature of compound colors.'' The gentleman's remarks were ingenious, but not well enough digested to bo reported. The gist of his project was to reduce the number of the primary colors, and represent them by oblique, perpendicular, horizontal and transverse linos, as inheralArv. The President again called to the (notice of the Socie ty its fiscal affairs. Since he spoke of the matter in the morning, he believed all the members then present had complied with his suggestion. If any others, not then present, had since arrived, they would do well to pay their assessment Professor Rooers again brought up tho question of the memorial to the government, which was made matter of discussion on the day before. In dwelling briefly on tho importance of the matter, he alluded to the pains taken by foreign governments in regard to similar subjects, and desired to see a committee appointed, and the discus* sion pursued among members. Mr. Hats and Dr. Jackson spoke. Tho latter said, that when professionally engaged on tho coast of Maine, ho had paid attention to the subject of the ocean's level, and frequently conversed with old pilots and fishermen, who were invariably of tho opinion that the level of the sea on'that coast had sunk, or, in their language, that the rocks had sensibly grown within the memory of man. He was anxious to see a systematic plan undertaken for ascertaining the tide levels, under tho auspices of gov ernment At Portland, measures to this end had lately been effected ; and when it was considered that the Uni ted States had power and moans, throughout tho whole ocean coast to do so, it would be a matter of regret if efforts were not made to see whether we were getting up in the world or down. (Laughter.) Professor Silliman added, that on the coast of New England, evidences, in the form of marine remains were abundant, that a difference had taken place in the eleva tion of the sea. For one, he would be glad to see gov ernment taking up the matter; it would not cost much, and would be well carried into effect by the liberal mind ed men in their employ. In immenso valleys over this country, in the State of Mississippi, the immense alluvial deposits were proofs of what had been said. He spoke of the ruins of the cypress forests found on the banks of the Mississippi. Of the proofs of suocessive growths on the alluvial soil, of the low site of New Orleans, compared with these deposites, as bearing upon this question. After dwelling on the bad foundation of New Orleans, he said it was a matter of great importance that they should sink no farther. Professor Rooers was still doubtful of the alleged rise of the New England coast. There might have been pa roxysmal elevations, but they were not continuous ; and as to tho direction of the land at present, he Jwas com pletely in the dark. Ho thought if the matter were pro ]>erly brought before government, they would take it up. A motion was then carried for the nomination of a com mittee, whose duty would be to memorialize the Secreta ry of the Navy, on the questions forming the subject mat ter of the discussion. In yesterday's report an abstract of them was presented. The Association here adjourned till half past 0 o'clock on Saturday. Boston. [Corre?pondence of the Herald.] Boston, May 3rd, 1845.

What would the venerable Knicker bockers of ancient Manhatta have thought of steam ing up the Hudson River to Albany in six or seven hours, and for twenty-five cents! But the present fashion is even more liberal than this, for they not only cany a man for twenty-five cents, but run him on a rock and drown him likewise, without any extra charge. In fact, a trip from Albany to New York, or vice verta, isjabout the cheapest way thata poor devil of a fellow, tired of life, can " shuffle of this [mortal coil." It ,would cost him more than two shillings to buy halter, pistol, or poison. The roval mail steamer Hibemia, being now fourteen days out, is hourly expected, and with no slight degree of interest, ns her news will probably relate in a considerable degree to the subject of the Oregon and Texas questions, anil as these are the prevailing topics just now, it renders her coming a highly interesting circumstance. This is the ci?se not only in Boston, but also to a greater degree, if liossible, at the South and West. iS'ow let me pro pound to you one nuestion. Have these Southern and Western peonle found out the fact that the Herald contains nil these matters, generally sneak ing. twenty-four hours before other New York papers 1 ? If they dont subscribe to the Herald, why thev deserve to bo behind fho?e who know th?-ir own tntercstsanci have good will enough to do so. In your city of cabs and omnibuses, you have not got one vehicle of this class, of a peeufiar construc tion, and which thrives in Boston. I refer to a light eab of about half the usual capacity, inside of which the driver sits at his case, the reins passing out of a small window in the front. There is no outside vat, ?nd these queer little nutshells, with a hole in them, are in great vogue with the physicians here. They shelter the driver and occupant completely Ironi view, and look as they pass along the streets, like a horse and cab out for a private walk on their own hook. Cant you say a word about the miserable arrange ment of the starting from your city of the day lineTor Boston. It purports to be a day line, yet gets in here all alone shore until twelve o'clock midnight. The Hoston merchants grumble about the matter, and say that the cars should leave Brooklyn as early as seven o'clock, A. M., instead of 10 o'clock, as at present. This woujd make it. in fact, what they pretend that the route is, viz: a nay line. "The beautiful Long Island mail," says the Pout of this morning, "came in last night a little after 10 o'clock, with no news."? Just touch the directors under the short ribs, Mr. Ed itor. The season appears to be settled down and deter mined to follow out the good old customary mode of nature. The trees bud and leave out very fast, and the environs of the city look like a hot house,so fresh and green is every thing. To be sure, we do get pret ty|heavy down of the rascally East wind, but this is 1 mainly avoided by a residence a few miles inland,! from whence one can get to business with very little ! loss of time, and an actual saving as to expense? house rent and the like. Among the suburban rem dences that are most sought, are those of Dedham, Newton, tfcc., about a dozen miles from the city, whence the cars whisk a person into the city,in a half an hour or less, and at any time of the day. Perhaps you have seen something in the papers lately respecting Sophia Hunt, a very pretty young lady, lately hauled up to Court in this city,on a charge of passing counterfeit money. It seems that she was ratlier the dupe of some gay Lothario than an ac-: complice in the money business, and under these cir cumstances the Court gave her a light sentence, such as a small line, thirty aays imprisonment, &c. But the funniest part of the thing was,that Judge Cushing ordered her to give bonds in the sum of $100 to keep the peace for six months! This is a droll idea, and: one for which L. S. Cushing, Esq., Judge of the Mu nicipal Court, deserves a patent. Only think of put ting a pretty girl under bonds to keep the peace, be cause she passed counterfeit money! Cushing is a new Judge, and not a very bright one at that,and does no great credit to his apitoinlee, Gov. George Nixon Brig?s. I n thefway of theatricals just now, there is not much doing. Mrs. George Barrett is playing a short en gagement at the Boston Museum and draws crowded houses. She is a most wonderful woman, looking now absolutely plumper, fresher, and handsomer, than she did twelve years ago. She plays with some thing less of vivacity than formerly, but with full enough of life. In fact, too great an exuberance of spirits was her chief demerit as an actress in her younger days. Age has remedied this failing, and she now presents her characters with striking effect. Her voice has also improved from what it was iu early days, it being now stronger and fuller, and a trifle deeper in tone than formerly. Her beautiful eyes, which drew forth the warm encoiniuinsfof Fanny Kcmble years ago, have all that sweetness'of expres sion ana brilliancy which then rendered them the chann of the Tremont boards. "Love's Sacrifice," is a play in which she appears to great advantage.and in this she is most ably supported by Harry Smith.? She also does great justice to that splendid play of Shakspeare, "As You Like It," in which she appear ed on Thursday evening as Rosalind. There are some sad passages in the life of this remarkable wo man, who is now forty-seven years old,but I hope her last days may be her best and brightest. She has found a true friend in Mrs. L. M. f luids of your city, a genuine philanthropist. Your devoted, Guy Faux. Hartford. [Correspondence <>t tho Herald.] Hartford, 'onn., May 3,1845. Observing in my perambulations about these parts, i iliat your independent Weet enjoys a pretty extensive circulation, and is eag ly sought after by all classes; and believing that In -rot it's going on, as well as what's ti acceptable to yourself and reade. , ing my sojourn here, should you appro > ., to f urnish a brief synopsis of such matters and tilings in general as in terest all mankind, and women in particular. Imprimit. There is somewhat more than a con siderable quantity of building going on, embracing divers mammoth edifices for sacred and sccular pur poses. Among the former is a free stone church for the Unitarians, on the corner of Asylum and Trum bull streets, which is a great eye-sore to the blue skins in tins region, who are zealously opposed to any body's going to heaven, except by the same rail road on which they and their forefathers have been travelling ever since the landing of the liberal and enlightened " Pilgrim Fathers, who, so kindly, by fire and water ana many other purifiers, (now mis called )Knccution? by the wicked and degenerate,) removed the living obstacles which in their day and generation stood in the way of our salvation. De spite all opposition, however, the Units have gained a firm footing here, and evince an indomitable spirit of go-a-head-ativeness which can't be beat. The Universalists, too, are flourishing like a green bay tree, much to the chagrin of the immaculate Congre gationalists, who labor with an earnestness, worthy a better cause, to check the growing influence of these sects, and to piously prevent the spread of any system or creed but their own. But the opposition to Unitarianism, Universahsm, or any other ism, is a mere drop in the bucket, in comparison with their rabid virulence towards Catholicism. They unceas ingly ransack the Greek, English, Latin, Dutch, Hebrew, French, and 1 don't know but the Welsh "and Milesian languages, for epithets to express their holy horror of this idolatrous, bigotted, intolerant, ignorant class of fellow-beings??(" these last words are quotations")?and lament, with faces as long as a grenadier's boot-jack, that their most strenuous efforts to stay its rapidly increasing and wide spread ing influence, have any other than the desired eflect. But, perhaps, something too much of this. If Sir Robert Peel, and Mrs. Prince Albert, and the Emperor of Brazil, and his Senorship of Mexico, or any others of that kidney, could be about these diggins next week, they would be cured of their war fever a leetle bit quicker than Davy Hale would cure a mad dog. Next Monday there is to be a " ge neral training," and such a display of bone, sinew and broomsticks is anticipated,as might well dismay the combined forces of the world, including Coney Island and Communipaw. Then, too, on Wednes day, there is to be an august convocation of the Legis lative wisdom of the State, which will probably re main in session for about two months?in addition to which, there will be a " grand election military parade," embracing two companies frpm New Ha ven ana some others from elsewhere?in addition to which, there will be a "grand civic and military ball" in the evening?in addition to which, there will be a " grand military collation and anniversary supper" at the State House, which has been put in the finest apple pie order by its gentlemanly superin tendant, Mr. Hurlbut. The firemen will also make a " grand display" of themselves and ap|>aratus, and everything will be on the " grandest" scale that ima gination and material can well devise?not forget ting His Excellency the Governor, who will exhibit himself, if fair weather, both on foot and horseback. Many here have a praiseworthy curiosity to see how a Governor eats and drinks, and no doubt they will be amply gratified on this occasion?but whether he will show them how he dances, is yet a mystery concealed by the veil of time. I shall keep an eye on all these momentous move ments, the legislative wisdom in particular, and duly apprize you of " what's going on." In a hurry, yours, T. Tickle. P. S. There has been great disappointment at jhe non-arrival of the " Temple of the Muses," which has been anxiously expected in these waters for something like a fortnight.

The regular meeting for discussion on this subject, took place yesterday afternoon at the old Franklin Theatre, in Chatham Square, but in consequence ot' the Iniidel Convention being in full operation at the same hour, but a limited number of persons attended, und the discussions that were anticipated were not gone into. However, a Chairman was appointed, Mr. Smith by name, and in a few general remarks he ex ? plained the object of their Association?the benefit* to be derived from their plans, and the great advantages that would uccrue to mankind in general, would they enter into the ideus laid down byMr.Xhven. He ar gued that the immense surplus of all kinds of produce, manufactured and otherwise, that is accumulating in consequence of the great increase of labor saving machines, will inevitably lead to a general crash, en tailing ruin, distress, and misery, on thousands who, even in the present state ot affairs, enjoyed a good living. It was a well known fact in political economy, that the greater the produce of any mass of people, the greater the difficulty in the majority of them ob taining a fair share of their proportion, the product of their labor generally bein^ divided among the few capitalists, whose wealth was thus enormously in creased, to the detriment of the absolute operative.? To support this argument, he need only point to the condition of the laboring classes of Europe, where, with the immense amount of labor saving machine ry employed, there exists more want, poverty, and des titution, than in any country in the world. If, on the other hand, mankind could tie porsuaded, each individually, to assist with their labor, what a different itate of things would exist. Then every one would stand on an equal footing, and poverty and its attending horrors, would be driven from the world. Ho went on to state, that a farm in Pennsylvania, containing H00 square acres, had been bought and paid for by this Association, and has been in successful operation tor two years; on it they erected saw-mills, and various cottages, barns, lie. The Society also has contributing branches in Philadelphia, Newark, Pate mo n, Taunton, Mass., and this day they had received 1111 application from Pitsburgh: their collection altogether averaged about one hundred dollars per month; they had about $7,400 capital stock subscribed for, of which about $1,000 was paid in. Kor fifty dollars a person could se cure a homo for life ior himself and family, free from the vicissitudes and cares of the present mode of existence, and this fact alone rendered it an object of consideration for those who even now are above all want, but who might yet, by the revolving wheel of reduced to necessity' Mr. Smith excused himself from speaking further, as "ho merely had taken the chair in the absence of the regular members, who were attending the Iniidel ( onvention.and though there was but a small attendance, he si ill invited any one who was inclined for discussion on the subject, to step foward. After some little delay, Mr. Huwter stepped up to the lostrum, and stated that the great curio of communities was over-production. He would exemplify this from a fact ho had obtained from Mr. R. Owen, viz.: that six years ago the population of (ireat Britain, mechanical and human, amountod to fifty millions. At that period steam power had not been so extonsively applied to machinery as it has since, which we may judge of from the fact, that at this time it is equal, human and me chanical, to eight hundred millions?and in the same ratio that this increase has taken place has the difficulty of obtaining a livelihood increased. lu former days, when this immense overplus was not produced, the comforts of life were more plenty and more easily ob tained than at presout. The human mind has hitherto been altogether directed to the acquisition of wealth, without regard to the proper distribution of the same ; nud it is the object of this society to obviate this state of things. The relation of man to his present being must be ascertained, and if tho mind is not properly directed in its efforts, pain and suffering are sure to follow. But the new state of society that was proposed by this asso ciation, where man's instinct would be directed to the exercise of benevolence and kindness one towards another, would prove on? of the greatest triumphs of modern philantrophy. Mr. Smith again addressed the meeting, and went on to show the great results that would spring from the adoption of this plan ; he argued that the great sonrce of crime in communities consisted in the great individuality of society ; this calling of things mine instead of ouri; if everything was resolved into a public stock, instead of private, all the inducements to crime would be dono awav with, as they all more or less arose from the ine quality of distribution. Crime being done away with, nil tho expensive machinery of courts, lawyers, con stables ana such non-producing classes would also be dispensed with ; and the mass of mankind, being re moved from the fear of want and poverty, would quickly dcvelope the natural intelligence which is inherent in mankind. This system is entirely different from the one recommended by Fourier. In his plan capital is placed to take advantage of labor ; money is there the object, and not as in this case the elevation of human nature. In Fourier's schcme, a person purchasing a sufficient number of shares could live without labor on the inter est of his capital, but in this scheme, all would be placed on a perfect equality. Here the speaker came to a pause, and as no one ap peared to wish to discuss his peculiar doctrines, he moved an adjournment, which was unanimously agreed to by the audience immediately dispersing. City Intelligence. Kikk.?Yesterday afternoon a fire broke out in No. 7 Hoosevclt street, which communicated with the house No. 9. The facts are these: The flue of the house No. 7, by some unforseon circumstances, took fire, and connect ed with the hall in the adjoining house, and was burning rapidly; several fire companies were shortly on the spot, who, by cutting away the partition between both houses, and also part of the roof, at once got to the root of the fiery element, which they in a very short time extin guished. The amount of damage done will not exceed the amount of $200. We understand the premises are not insured. Police OAce->MiT 4?Attemft to Steal.?About* o'clock this moruing, an individual supposed to be Wil liam Johnson, was delected in the entry of the house of Hugh Oilhooly, of No. 57 Mulberry street ; and as it was supposed he did not come upon any charitable or proper motive, he was taken to the Watch House, from thence to the Police Office, and from thence to the Tomb*.
