This invaluable sheet will contain reportsol ailthe, religious, and philosophical societies, num bering thirty, which have taken place in New Vork and neighborhood, during the last week. It will lie one of the most remarkable lilerary productions ol the age, as showing the march ol intellect and the progress of*the human mind in this country. It will be ready this afternoon?price 6^ cents. The Philosophy of the Recent Anniversaries. The numerous anniversaries?amounting to about thirty in hII?which have been held in this city du ring the week, suggest u great deal of interesting, and not altogether profitless s|K?culation and reflec tion. They are so inuny indices of the movements and workings of the itopularmind in religion, morals, civilization and philosophy?annual rejiorts of hu man progress, which no intelligent und thoughtful observer can allow to pass unstudied. Let us look at them in this aspect. Two thirds of these meetings are of a purely re ligious and moral character. And one remarkable feature which distinguishes all, is high toned Pro testantism. A strong and decided sectarianism marks every one of them. The circulation of the Protestant llible?the dissemination of Protestant tracts?the sending forth of Protestant mission aries?the supjHirt of Protestant colleges?the vindi cation and propagation of Protestant doctrines,?are the great objects of these associations. The des truction of Popery is the grand and avowed aim of all their efforts. This is the fa vorite theme of the orators. The movement of these societies then cannot be strictly regarded as a putting forth of the energies of the Christian world for the evangelization of the nations?it is part and parcel of the great antagonistic effort which the one great sect has been engaged in ever since the Refor mation. Catholicism meanwhile is not idle. Itisever active, but its mighty machinery moves silently and without public appeals 'and public parade. Its thou sands of missionaries are every where at work. It is planting churches and colleges, und convents, and seminaries all over the continent. Thus with its policy changed and conformed to the spirit of the age, the church of the seven hills still presents its front, massive, extended and unbroken, to the ad vancing forces of Protestantism. One third of these associations are philosophical, Fourierite, Abolition, and Infidel. They constitute a inoet singular and interesting part of this intellec tual movement. .Some of them are directly o|>posed to Christianity?they denounce all the religious movements as the work of priestcraft and inimical to human liberty and happiness. Others affect to be purely philosophical, announce new theories of so ciety and seek to regenerate the world by upsetting the present organization of society and substituting the system of Fourier, or Owen, or some other social reformer. The number of persons directly engaged in all these movements is very inconsiderable?much more so than many at first sight would imagine. And very little influence is exerted on the great masses of the people by these associations, notwith standing all the effort and noise which mark their operations. Probably not more than from five to ten thousand individuals, two thirds of them females, take any direct interest in the religious societies. The clergy?young aspirants for clerical notoriety and preferment?and laymen whose vanity, ambition for display in the only field oj>en to them, and, per haps, pious feelings, are thus gratified?are the chief conductors of these movements. The great mass of business men?the active members of the community, who control the great tide of social progress?do not take any part in these associations. The infidel and philosophical movements have still fewer supporters. Not more than one thousand individuals?one-third of them females, few of them young and most of them old and ugly?unite in these efforts to revolu tionize society and public opinion. The philosophers too, are men who have little personal influence in society. They are dreamy wild, and visionary enthusiasts, unfit for the practi cal business of the world, who are jostled aside in the movement of the crowd of the active and indus trious millions, and who wander away and are lost in the wilderness of abstraction and impracticability. All this curious, varied, and original machinery? moral, religious, and philosophical of all kinds, can not be set in motion without money. How much money, then, do these associations collect 1 Where does it come from 1 The religious societies do not collect more than between three and four hundred thousand dollars annually. Little of this iscollec ed in New York. The great bulk of contributions cornea from the country?from the pious, quiet, re ligious, Popery-hating rural districts. The philoso phers get very little money?probably not more than between three and four thousand dollars a year. It is a remarkable trait in the character of these phi losophers, that they will give you a great deal of talk, but very little money. They have, indeed, something of a contempt for money. Industry is contemptible according to them, when its object is the dirty dross called money. Pure philosophy should, they think, serve mankind for meat, drink, and lodgings. A few, however, do manage to make their philosophy " pay." After all, then, the influence of all these movements on the masses is very slight. The masses are practical masses?they are common sense masses?they are money-making masses. They are masses that love the " almighty dollar" more than they love Almighty God. And yet, these proceedings, year after year, these movements?religious, moral, philosophical, infidel. Fourierite, social, and all?are not without certain results?results in a greater or less degree beneficial. The religious movements on the one hand, representing the strong sectarian feelings and prejudices of the past?and the philosophical move ments on the other, representing the ultraism of the age, groping its way into the mists and darkness ofthe future, are like the two opposing forces of electricity, operating on the intellect and opinion of the time. The results must be satisfactory. The spirit of free l nquiry is encouraged. The public mind is excited to new and useful courses of investigation. Foolish theories arc seen in all their extravagance and im practicability. ' rennine religion comes out pore and attractive, as ever from the conflict with infidelity. Infidelity itself, allowed perfect freedom, becomes more moderate and less blasphemous. The tritii is all the time widening its dominion ; and slowly, but surely, amid all the dust, and turmoil, and noise and extravagance which mark its career, the mighty progressive movement of the human mind goes on ; the race, ever marching onward to the highest point of perfection, which it is destined to attain in philo sophy, religion, science and civilization. Dissolution of ibi Mai.timork Repeal Asso ciation. The dissolution of the Repeal Associa tions has commenced in Baltimore. This is only the beginning of the end. The brutal tirades of O'fonnell against this country,at the very time hewas reccving thous.ndsof dollars from the poor deluded repealers, are beginning to be regarded in their true light. Why don't the repealers in this city, it they really possess the feelings and impulses of American citizens, at once disown their Association ! I)o they indeed mean to |>ersist in supporting the man who denounces the country which gives them a sanctua ry and existence 1 Lono Island Rah.roar.?The Hoston train over the Long Island Hail road arrived last evening in nine hours forty-two minutes from Boston, with a large number of passengers. The running was done in eigbt hours and fifty-eight minutes. I Tiikatrical and Mimical.?Castle Garden opens on Monday evening next with the late Italian com pany. The Theatre has been fitted up on a scale of the greatest magnificence, and in dimensions is equal to the "/>/ St atu," at Milan. It it* a novel experi meut. The cost of fitting up tlie <iardeu in the present style has amounted to ?10,000. Pico,. Majocchi.Valtellina, Sanquirico, and Antognini com mence nn undress o|**ra at fifty cents |>er night. The pre|Nirations made for this novel enterprise have been on a princely scale and deserve the highest ap probation. The project will be, we are fully inclined to anticipate, eminently successful. Pahuo's Oj>era House is now in the hands of Dumbolton, after a long campaign between Paliuo and Dinneford relative to the rent. Wefundcrstand, however, that the case will come up before the Su perior Court, or some odier tribunal in this city, when the farce of the "Manager's Last Kick," will be |>erfonned by the lawyers before the judge and delighted s|>ectators. In the meantime, Dumbleton is doing very well with his "Serenaders," or "Min strels," or whatever it is he has got. We are sorry for all parties concerned in the late conflict. Poor Pali no has lost money?Dinneford has lost money? Dumbleton has lost money?the public have lost mo ney?the printers have lost money?the players have lost money?ihe tiddlers huve lout money?no one seeing to have made any money but Mr. Tylee, the owner of the ground, into whose hands the whole thing luts (alien like a ripe i>each. .So it is an ill wind that blows nobody good. The new Bowery Theatre is making rapid progress in ]>opularity, and in a short time it will form into regular customers two-thirds of the frequenters of the old Bowery Theatre. The ruins on the other aids of the street are still untouched. How soon the workmen may visit them we don't know. In the meantime, Tryon is busy securing his harvest. Of the other cheap theatresjwe know nothing, and seldom hear of them.. Probably some persons may visit them, and a few newsboys may still eat pea nuts in the pit. The " Bohemian Girl," at the Park, is still draw ing full houses. This piece has had an extraordina ry run. Last night, Mr. Frazer, the principal tenor, took his benefit. He appeared to have spirited him self up for the occasion, and really made a more fa vorable impression than he had before effected. Mr. Frazer has been, we fear, laboring under some indis position, which has occasioned the want of power attributed to him by many. He possesses a cultiva ted taste, and much skill and judgment, as far as we have been able to discover. After the " Bohemian Girl" comes Mr. Anderson's farewell benefit, which will doubtless be still more crowded and enthusiastic than ever. The attempt originally made in this city by some of the ultra admirers of Forrest to injure Anderson, was crushed in the bud by the timely ex posure in our columns, nnd the affiliation in Phila delphia was utterly overthrown by the discriminat ing public of that city, on its very first manifestation. One word of advice we offer to Anderson?let him avoid long s|>eeches, and attempts to be very philosophical, very learned, and very dignified. A short, simple, unstudied remark or two, will fell more effectively than all the long rigmarole that Forrest or Macready ever uttered. Simpson is now in Europe, and will probably bring out some novelty in the way of ballet and opera, and also some beautiful actress, we under stand. In the meantime, on the 16th of June, the French company take possession of the Park, and will hold it till some time in September. This will be a very strong point of rivalry to the Italian com pany of Castle Garden; but probably it will do both good. We do not think that the French company are equal to the Italian com|>any in point of musical powers. It will, however, be a novel and interest ing race. A concert for the benefit of the sewing artists and working women of New York, announced for Monday next, has been postponed till the '20th. The manager had invited some of the Italian vocalists, but they were under the necessity of declining, in consequence of opening on the same night at Castle Garden. The concert was to take place at the Tabernacle, and tickets to the amount of $35 were disposed of; and of that Manager Hale has already clutched #30, and intends to get $20 more out of these |>oor girls. As he has the whole field to himself, having driven Hamblin off, we doubt notMr. Manager Hale willmake anice penny out of the Tabernacle. The Lion Tamers.?Van Amburgh, the celebrated lion-turner, and, we believe, the first of his class, arrived by the last steamer, after a sojourn of seven years in Europe. He has amassed a handsome fortune, and now returns to his native land in the prime of life. He looks remarkably vigorous and healthy. He left town the other evening to visit the place of his nativity on the North River. Hriesbach, another celebrated lion-tamer, is now in this city, with some very curious novelties in the way of wild animals, which he tames in the most extraordinary manner, at his menagerie, corner of ] Eighth street and the Bowery. We really should think that the President of the United States, Heads ! of Departments, and Collectors of the Ports, ought to take some lessons from these celebrated tamers of wild beast*. If there be any wilder beasts than office-beggar.*, we don't know where they are to be found. New York Sacrkd Music Society?Hay dn's Grand Oratorio?The Creation.?At the Tamer.nack?Nearly four thousand persons assembled last evening to witness the perform ance of this grand, sublime and massive musi cal composition. The characters are Gabriel Uriel. Raphael, Adam and Eve, and were sustained by Messrs. Henry Philips, W. H. Oakley, ft. An drews, and Miss J. L. Northall, and Mrs. E. Loder. About three hundred vocal and instrumental per formers were engaged in the execution of this great masterpiece. It o|?ns with wild and solemn music, representing chaos, which is followed by a Recita tive?" In the beginning < rod created the Heavens and the Earth"?by Mr. Phillips, which was receiv ed with much applause. Miss Northall sang with her usual taste, and was in excellent voice?while Mrs. Loder was more divine than ever. The final chorus?" Praise the Lord! ye voices all," was sung with great effect. We hope this society will give us the Messiah of Handel, ere long, and strive to create a taste for something above the miserable shows and " Negro Melodies ' which have so long viuraged the atten tion of this sight loving public. Too much praise cannot be awarded to the able conductor, Mr. U. C. Hill, and the accomplished organist, Mr. II. C. Timni, for their praseworthy efforts. Removing the Dead I Bodies from the Grave Yakd in the vicinity ok the Postofuce.?We perceive that several of the vaults have been opened in the vicinity of the new Postotfice, and the bodies have !>een removed to the burial grounds in the vici nity of the city. Some to St. Marks' Church?some to kast and West Chester, and elsewhere. It is to be regretted, that the friends of those who liuve been buried in this quarter, had not decided on this step btforr the opening of the new Postollice?and at a season of the year, more suited for the purpose, than the present warm weather. The Postoifice, ns n place of pullic resort, is continually crowded from morning to ni^'ht, and the offensive odor arising from the vault?,when opened,may prove dangerous in this sul try weather. We can appreciate those commendable feelings which prompt the true respcct for the ances tral B^hes of the dead, which should always sleep in ?acre<! repose;and, as, doubtless, the vaults in this old bnria' ground will eventually all be opened, and the bodies removed to a more calm and quiet resting place, we would advise a more Hppropriate season than the present for such a purpose. Mr. i>isbrow, the sexton, not being at home, and the grave-diggers on the'spot being able to give any information to our Reporter, as to whether or not, it was intended to continue any further the o|?eningof the vaults we are unahl>: to give anything definite on the subject. JrsTic.T Ouinkkr.?It will be wen on reference to our law re|K>rtn, that the charges against Justice Drinker, have born dismissed?the Justice tit the ?atne time receiving the censure of the Court. Kxrcutlou of James Rjiger for the Murder of Philip Wllllama?Seeite at the Tomb*, 4(e> The execution of this unfortunate and guilty man took place in the yard in the rear of the City Prison, but within the outside walk, yesterday ailernoon ; when he expiated ujhui the gallows the (?enalty due for the heinous crime of which he has been tried and convicted, and which he himself has from the tirst admitted; and we trust that the speedy manner in which justicc has in this instance been performed,will act as a preventive to crime. But as executions have taken place before to-day, and murderers have notwithstanding committed crimes with impunity, we do not anticipate any very favor able result, es|>ecially as wealthy criminals,'with in fluential friends and relatives to back them, have succeeded in brow-beating and defeating the ends of justice, and in cases too, when murders have been committed with less cause, and for more worldly and infamous motives than actuated the poor wretch who has just .been sent from this breathing world into the presence of his Maker, to receive that after-punishment which he feared and dreaded so much more than that which he received in compliance with the voices of his fellow men, who cry a tooth for a tooth, an eye for an eye, and blood for blood. Eager was ubout thirty-three years of age, five feet nine inches in height, stout and square built, and would weigh about one hundred and fifty (wunds. His countenance was not unprepossessing. He was born in the North of Ireland, of Protestant parents, and was always brought up to worship in thai faith. He came to this countiy when about twenty years of age, and has resided in this eitv the greater part of tne time. Here he married the woman who has been the cause, innocently or otherwisje, we cannot decide, of his meeting an ignominious death. She was of intemperate habits, and he was by 110 means a temjierate man, as he fell into low and worthless company. During the past year he becamejsatisfied thut Philip Williams, an acquaintance of himself and wife, was in the habit of having illicit intercourse with her, and he determined if such was the case, that he would take some means, what he did not care, to avenge himself upon the man that had destroyed his peace of mind. Williams and his wife were very in timate, and he often saw them together, and at last, blinded by rage and jealousy, every movement on their parts tended to convince him more strongly that he was right. On the night of the 2d of Decem ber last,he went to the house, No. 121 Rosevelt street, where Williams boarded, ana went to his door where he waited ull night, believing that his wife had been and was still in the room of Williams. The next morning when Williams dressed himself and came out into the entry to go to work, he encountered Eager, who stabbed him several times in the breast witn u .knife, one wound penetrating the heart and causing almost instant death. He was arrested on the spot in the very act of consummating his purpose, and acknowledged that he had committed the mur der, stating in extenuation that his wife had been in the room of Williams the preceding evening, as he knew by her voice, and that he could not get admit tance ; that he went out and purchased a candle and returned to the door, but was still denied admit tance?u|>on which he went out for a watchman, but being unable jo find one, came back and found that the candle had been taken inside. He then de termined to be revenged, and waited in the hall all night until he accomplished his iwrpose. He also stated to the watchman that die deed was done, and intimated that if he had the life of another person he shouldldie satisfied. His trial commenced upon the 18th of March, in the Court of Oyer and Terminer, before Judge Edmonds and two Aldermen, and he was defended by James T. Brady, Esq., with ability ?received every concession from Mr. l'aterson, the District Attorney, that could justly be granted?re ceived a fair and impartial trial, and on the 19th of March was convicted by the jury, nfter an abscnce of one hour, with a recommendation to mercy, mad* because some of the jurors were opposed to capital punishment. On Friday, the 21st of March, he was sentenced by .lud?e Edmonds to be hung between the hours of 12 and 2 o'clock on the 9th of May, and conjured to banish all hope of mercy from his mind and prepare for his dreadful doom. .... i A bill of exceptions was prepared by his counsel, but they were so weak and untenable that he was forced to abandon them, and so clear whs the man's guilt, even taking his own confession, that Governor Wright refused to exercise the executive clemency in his behalf. . . , At the time of the sentence Eager complained that it was hard to die for killing his wife's seducer, but did not cavil at the justice of the law. lie was an ignorant man, being unable to either rend or write. Soon alter his centencc,he wa* visited by the K?*. A. Camp, a tract missionary, oi the Baptist faith, and I expressed a desire to be preimred for death. He was afterwards visited by Mr. Camp and the Rev. K. W. Hatt, of the Mulberry street Baptist Tabernacle, and by Mr. Harriss, who endeavored to prepare him to meet his Creator. ... j He hun expressed to them his sincere Borrow and penitence for the deed uniformly, and maintained that he believed his jealousy was well founded, and that his wife was false; acknowledges that it was not sufficient cause to warrant him in taking the life of a fellow creature. He attributed all his fatal pafsion to rum and bad company. He has rci>eatedly stated that th<- momenf after he became conscious of ha ving killed Williams, he regretted it and would have given the world if it had not happened, but that until . recently he endeavored to steel his heart against these feelings, knowing what his fate must be. A few days ago he expressed a desire to see his wife, and express his forgiveness to her, and on Tuesday she visited himi n his cell, and unmoved, heard the doomed man forgive her, and call upon God to do so likewise. On Wednesday she visited him again, in company with one or two women and some other persons, all of them in a stntc of intoxi cation. He extended his hand to her, but she re fused to take it, upon which a momentary flush came upon his face, but soon subsided info a resigned ex pression, and with a sigh heBaid, "God be mejci- , ful." His wife and the party with her behaved bru tally, and conducted themselves in so improper a manner, that keeper Johnson wasjobliged to order them f rom the cell, and when they were gone,Eager said he did'nt want to see his wife again, and she never after came near him. At the request of Eager, Mr. Hatt and Mr. Camp visited him in his cell on Thursday night, and sat with him,praying and preparing him for the moiTow, until about 4 o'clock, when he expressed a desire to be left alone. When asked by Mr. Hatt if he was prepared to die, he said, " Yes; it isn't the death of the body I fear, but its what's to come hereafter. The law of God which demands my death is right- i eons and just, and the law of the State is just, and I ought to die. 1 feel no disposition to quarrel with my sentence." When asked by Mr. Hatt, in the course of the night, if he hnd not better take a little rest and try to sleep, he replied?" No, sir ;1 shall have rest to-morrow." When asked it he had any desire to have the execution delayed, he said?"No, I am now prewired and ready to go, and desire no delav." After being left 'alone at B o'clock, he fell asleep and slept for about two hours, and then rose, washed himself and partook of some ligrt food. Several persons visited him in his cell, and to all he expressed himself that he was perfectly re signed and ready to throw himself into the arms of I his God. The clergymen were with him at an early hour and remained with him to the last. About 8 o'clock several judges and aldermen, and persons deputised as special sheriffs for the day, the officers of police, physicians invited to attend the execution, Arc. began to enter the prison, as well ns a number of persons who forced themselves in with out any right or title, but were on that account per mitted to enter without any warrant or permit, when those whose duty called them were obliged to go through the. prescribed form. The sheriff and his deputies were on hand in good season preparing for I the event of the day. Persons began to flockinto the police office to crave I permits, to congregate in Franklin, Centre, Elm and Leonard streets, with a vague idea or hope of some how or other getting a chance of'seeing something, and without the most remote probability of their be ing able to satisfy their morbid curiosity. The num ber outside th" prison who were unable to see atw thing at all could,not have been less than a thousand, and in the inside there was about three hundred, two hundred of whom came in properly. The gallows was erected in the rear of the prison, across the iwssage wuy, and within a few feet of the window of Eager'* cell, and a few feet of where it was last erectedfor the purpose of Colt's execution. This same gHllows, which is made on the moderr plan, has been used for the execution of at least ten persons, two of whom were pirates, and it has been nsed in various parts of the State. It is con structed of two square oak posts, about 20 feet high, each supporting one end of an oak cross beam of about the same size and about 2ft feet long. The jiosts rest upon two horizontal benins, from which there are stanchions to the uprights. Between the posts a platform is made upon which the criminal stands. Inihecentr^e ofihcrossbeatn is astmill iron pulley, over which the traversing rope p-isses to the end, where there is another iwlley, over which it also pusses, ?nd is fastened to a large rope. The end of this larger rope is attached to the iron weighls,fourftfiand one 2*pound weights, and the other end passes through a larger pulley at the cross beam, and is made fast to a belnymg cleat, which is nailed upon the horizontal beam. The 1 weights having been raised about four feet from the I ground, the traversing rope upon which the halter is fastened, is lowered sufficiently to allow the halter to be loo|>ed on awl permit the criminal to stand upon I the platform, nnd the other end is, of course, made . fast to th* weight. When the large rone is cut by | the under Sheriff, the weights suddenly descend, tnd j run the criminal up the same distance that they go down. At one o'clock the Sheriff' entered the cell of ihe convict and directed hint to dress. The hangman's livery, which consists of white muslin pantaloons bound with black braid, frock coat of white muslin bound with black, and a cap bound with the same material with a black silk tossel at the top, was then i>ut on by the criminal without hia uttering a word. The Sheriff then placed the halter about the neck, and as he did so, a slight convulsive gulping was ob served, but he appeared no more affected, or so much as those that witnessed the preparation. The crimi nal's anus were then tied behind him by the elbows, and the Sheriff gave the word to move. As he left the cell. Eager asked permission to shake hands with Babe the pirate, and with Saun ders, the only two prisoners with whom he has had any converse, and the Sheriff readily granted this last request. Babe was then led along the corridor, and Eager shook hands with him, saying, "good bye, you must soon prepare to follow me"?and to Saunders he said pretty much the same thing. Babe did not evince so much feeling as one would sup pose a person in his peculiar situation would do, and Saunders did not appear to feel much. Everything being in readiness, at precisely twenty minutes past one o'clock; the criminal, sup|>orted on the left by High SheriH William Jones, in his cocked hat witn his sword cirt around his waist, and on the right by Deputy Sheriff McDonnough. also in uniform, preceded by a small posse of deputy sherifls, with their staves of office, left the cell of the prisoner at u slow, solemn and mournful pace, turned round the east end of the prison, and then turned into the pas sage-way in which the gallows was erected. At this |>oint every eye was lixed upon the prisoner, but he did not betray the slightest emotion, his features being calm and composed, evincing clearly that he was prepared to meet ^his death as a christian and a penitent. He never raised his eyes to the gallows, but kept them fixed about twenty paces ahead. As soon as they did rest upon the platform,aslight tremor passed over his frame. Every thing was as hushed as death, and the unfortunate criminal was placed upon the platform, and turned round facing the east. The sheriff then adjusted the halter, placing the knot behind the ear, and fastened the other end to the loop of the traversing ro|>e overhead. The minis ters of (iod then uncovered, as well as the sheriff and most of the spectators, and taking hold of the hand of the unfortunate wretcl^ the Rev. Mr. Hatt delivered the following prayer?the criminal as he did so, swaying his body slightly from side to side. Almighty and Everlasting (iod! thou juit protector of the universe?thou trod of Eternity, who delightesf not in the death of a tinner who has not obtained diviue forgiveness at thy hands?we pray unto thee, and cravo that thou may hear us. We pray that this man, who hath leen the folly and wickedness of his ways, as thou knowest, may obtain forgiveness through the mediation of a nattering Saviour. Thou knowest, O (iod, that he ii prepared to die the death of a christian, and to enter the valley and shadow of death, with angels to bear his spirit to thy shrine, where there is no sin. We commit him to thee, O God of the whole earth, to blot out all hit tint, and to forgive all hit iniquities and transgrettiont; and may the sainU of heaven rejoice over one who has re pented. Oh Lord, have mercy upon the toul of a poor sinner! Amen. The prisoner calmly but fervently responded an unien to the prayer. Mr. Hatt shook hands with him, and said, ''How ia it with you now!" To which he replied. "All well, and I die in peace. Good bye, good bye?pray for me." The Sue riff, the minister, and one or two others, shook hands with him, and then all were ordered to stand back. The cap was pulled over his eyes?the Sheriffwnved his hand to Mr. McDonnough?and, at precisely half past one o'clock, he, with a blow from the axe, severed the large ro|>e from the belaying stay?the weight descended, and the unfortunate criminal was run up into the air, so that his feet were about two feet from the ground. At the instant of the ascent, his arms were convulsively jerked, and then a tretoor of tho whole frame set in. The clenched hands were then raised and lowered, the legs stretched and drawn up slightly. Another tremor passed over the whole body?the body then bent backward ?the hands were again raised, as if the body in agony was parting from the soul. The hands again lowered?another tremor ran over the bodv?the toes dropped?and the spirit of James Eager,'a vic tim to vicious human passions, winged its way to that God that gave it birth, to receive, at his hands, the last, final judgment. May He have mercy on his soul! The pulse of Eager could be felt for fifteen minutes after he was run np, and it was evident, before he was token down, that the run had not dislocated his neck, and that he died from strangulation. He died as easy as any person could expect. After the body had been suspended for thirty-five minutes, the collin was brought from the prison, and the body taken down and placed therein, after which it was placcd in an apartment to remain twenty-four hours, to be claimed by his friends, (alas! poor man, he lias none) at the expiration of which time, it will be handed over to the surgeon for dissection. As soon as the cortege had left the prison, a look ing glass was pushed through the window, 111 the top ol Saundera' cell, to wbioh the reflection of ISann ders' watching, with intense anxiety, the pro ceedings, might be seen reflected. A great many of the prisoners had pieces of looking glass placed in sticu, and thrust out of the window, to see the exe cution. Charles Rickey, Mr. Cox's "^confidential prisoner," perched himself upon the roof of the main prison, and his woolly head was observed projecting over the spout. The jury of twelve men, who are always se lected by the sheriff to witness the execution, and with the iihysician certify that everything has been conducted properly, performed that duty, and the re cord will be transmitted to the Executive. Meeting for Consideration of the Propriety of Abolishing Capital Punishment. Last night there was a meeting held at the Miner va Kooms, for the purpose of discussing the question of the propriety of this mode of punishment, and the right that man has to take the life of his fellow be ings. The occasion was peculiarly fitting, after the execution in the Tombs in the morning,and the feel ings of those who are opposed to this mode of pun ishment being fully aroused on the subject. Among the audience we noticed several of the persons who have been assisting at the Anti-Slavery Convention 'hatches just concluded its session,and the attendance generally was made up of the couatry visitors, who have been for the 1 ist week attending the anniversa ries; but still, as far as the room would allow, it was well attended. At about 8 o'clock the meeting was addressed by Vice-Chancellor McCoun, who opened proceedings by a few remarks, stating that the city had again been disgraced by the execution of another fellow being, and it had been deemed a fit time for th? friends of the cause to assemble, and he stated that several gentlemen would address the meeting. J. L. O'SuLt.iviM, Esq., Editor oftho "Morning News," then introduced a series of resolutions, which recom mended the substitution of perpetual imprisonment for the punishment of death, and resolved the fo. m.'tion of r National Society for the abolition of the punishment cf death, to meet onec a year in Philadelphia?the fi t meeting to be on the lit Wednesday in October next? The following gentlemen to be the officers of the So ciety : President?Georoe M. Dallas, Viec President of the United States. Vict Preiidentt?Tho Presidents of atl State Societies ; (hose now existing being?Robert Rirtovi, Jr., of Bos ton : Vice Chancellor Wm.T. McCoun, of New York; Professor Henry 8.

Griswuld; Dr. Henry A. Gibbons?with power to add to their own number. Rev. W. H. Chanwino rose to second the resolu tions. Ho said, one scarcely c?n know how to give ex pression to the feelings which every one must f*el undor the tragody which has been acted in our midst. This morning's sun rose bright on many happy homes, but to how many voting hearts came the sad information that a fellow being was to be ushered into eternity, his soul to be separated from his body in a violent and cruel manner, sowing the first seed of revenge, and re venge sanctioned by law and admitted as a standing institution|of|social life : it shocked them to think so bad, so atrocious a deed could be committed. Allow me to Il lustrate how young minds can be affected by such deeds. Some years ago, a scene similar to the one which has shocked us to dar, occurred in our city. On the morn ing of the day of execution, a child was seen in tears, and tho cause was asked; I am afraid, said the child, I don't love the poor man enough to wish to be killed in his place; this was the pore instinct of a pure unsullied heart,?it was a shock of surprise to a moral nat re. Dut to pass from the scene which has transpired in this city to-day, I will ask if there is nny man here, who has not been shocked at the levity whicti has been manifest ed. Men were as eager for gam, for frivolous delight; not a pulse beat quicker, not a smile been staid; grave, serious christians have mot to discuss nuestions; the ex chance has been thronged; the workshop resounded to sound of human industry, all indifferent, and this indif ference to human life has been produced by this custom, ff the gallows hail never been hoard of, and had it been said to day, a soul like our* was to be battered out, eve ry man would havo been in sackcloth) no smiling faces would have licet seen, such would have been the deep horror of the tragedy; every face would have beenpaleil; and all would have said, there shall for this day at least, be a sabbath. It would produce tliis effect. But there is no mode in which it can he looked at, unless it is com plete. A crime has been committed, ami we destroy the life of a fellow being, and we offer In our justification the commandment, that life shall be taken. If you cannot prove that commandment, then this is a social crime. Let us look. Ood's command's must come to us either through Uieprophets or from the dictate* oftho heart. This custom, so revolting to the human soul,to our better nature, is deri ved from ono text, and tho best Hebrew scholars consider it of doubtful interpretation,but suppose it to beas clear a? If we hoard it from Heaven. Was it local or was it intend ed to be universal in its application. All the commenta tors combined can find no proof that It is universal, f oil* sidering the time, the people, and the circumstances, to whom and under which it was given, It must be consider ed as local. But supposing it to be lx>th elear and univer sal, and the command binding on society, then society to day has, by Its acts, disobey ed tin- command. The com mand say s", whoever commits murder murt be killed?not by society but as suddenly and revolting!) as the murder committed; this wti the practice in the days in which the commandment w?i given to the people; they made 110 dis tinction, aither do now, between murder, manslaughter and liomioide. 1 ask this, does the change of tine and circumstance warrant a change lathe mode of excuting the command? If it does, then tits oomuiand also changcs, and it is for you to prove that man is not commanded to to make a total change. Vow, ir there is no basis as coming from jirophcts or human promptings, then there is 110 right in tbo present form 01 society to en* lorce the text. Will any man say that James Ea ger^ death was necessary to Society?it was not to?he couid have bom confined and societv would have been safe. In savage, thrbulent times when there were no laws?when every man's hand was against his neighbor and his neighbor's against him, it might have been ne cessary ; but certainly not now. They say it was ne cessary for example. Whatliai been the example 1 We soy it was to arouse evil passions : it was to say to the rude, passionate, and ungovernea, man's life is not in violate. Can any man deny this to be the example to dav I The second example is that life cau be taken not only when tho better man is hushed, when the passions are aroused, but calmly, cooly, and deliberately ; and, therefore, life instead of being held sacred is looked up on as a light matter. There ii another example, and one which will not be forgotten. If life can be taken?thus solemnly and deliberately taken?the man of bad pas sions will say, why then, I can take life, and this is my justification. The fourth example, and the most terrible of all is, that life can be taken amid so much levity. Did not Eager know that this city was going on as usual; that the gay would laugh, and the solemn brood of care and jilod on when he was in the agonies of dissolution I He telt that lie was desolate and lonely?tho examrle that was taught so painfnlly to him, was taught to all.? T)ie newsboys who iiawked the account of his death through tho streets, what was the example to him ?? It could not be worse. By many, the justification of the punishment of death is based on its necessity to the safe ty of society. They say that this kind of punishment is necessary, and must be tolerated. I deny the justice; it is not a fitting punishment to the crime, because it makes societv commit the same crime, for it punishes the crimi nal. It is a perversion of justice. Tho mind that i| not familiar with the gallows is struck with abhorrence at its brutality and injustice. When the missionaries angliciz ed the savages and erected a gallows to punish a man, the men of nature were amazed?what, said they, com mit murder for murder 7 It is unjust, not because it is not the extreme punishment that society can inflict, but bocause it takes from the hands of Uod what is his right, and his only. The greatest punishment that can bo in flicted, is in my opinion, utter seclusion from society.? To mtngle with society, to enjoy the converse of friends, the delights of home, is the life of man, and the depriva tion of which he feels to be the greatest punishment. To exclude a man from all the ties of humanity is the true? the just and proper punishment. By giving him the means of reformation, you may lift him from degradation to occupy the high and holy sphere he was made for.? Show him when shut out from society, a friendly face to waken in his heart his better nature, and it will be at once a punishment and a blessing,?the crime done to day, to-morrow passes away and Is forgotten, and socie ty takes not even a passing notice of the eddying whirl where a fellow creature tank, butgeonsign him to a moral death, and he stands a lesson against the crime?it teaches all hearts. Such cases are remedial, and should be al lowed a chance. There is also danger of taking inno cent life. Mr. Channing then related several instances of the kind, and closed with this remark: when a man shows a better nature, new principles, you have God'i example to treat him as a man. Mr. CLArr, of Boston, rose in the name of religion, to bear testimony against capital punishment, though lie despaired of uttering his thoughts to the full extent. Every one whose heart has not been hardened by the action of the day, must have responded to the remarks of the eloquent Cnauning, that life is violable, and that we ourselves may take the life of a fellow being. Our ob ject Is the prevention of crime, and the exorcision of the spirit of murder. Seeing the secular and religious press look on this subject so lightly, what is the lesson that is taught by them* By tho tsking of life, which is the sa creaest of things, men all around ui are taught by the example to foster a spirit of revenge, and are tempted every day to exercise that spirit, and the fact that they do so little resist that temptation, proves that they need the lesson more and more every day that human life is most sacred, and has that lesson been taught? No. To day we have seen that life is violable, and that under certain circumstances, that tho blotting out of life is re cognizable. This question is one so plain, that from its very simplicity it is passed by; things that involve a most intricate course of reasoning and argument are ge nerally understood, but things so plain as this, we can scarcely force into the tortuous mind of the public. This day he had conversed with one whom, he was sorry to say,, was a minister of the (ios pcl?that Gospel that teaches to overcome evil with good, not the gibbet. The clergyman argued that tiie community of evil and depraved beings required the gibbet as an object of terror, that they might know that fe could not be taken?but is this true philosophy.? In the New Orleant Picayune he had read that great ef forts had lately been made te give up the wearing of deadly weapons, and it had been proved satisfactorily that notwithstanding the terror this custom inspired that it increased rather than diminished the tendency to com mit murder. In New Orleans and Vicksburg, though the code of honor so called, was in operation, though it was well understood that no man could commit the slightest offence towards his fellowman without running the risk of being cloven to the grouud. What haa this system of terror done? Mas it increased the safety of human life? No. In proportion to the number of assaults has the insecurity of lile increased. No man is so liable to insult t" he who goes armed at all times to repel in sult It is not true, iti fact that men are deterred from evil doiug by terror of the law, if terror ii to be the punishment, how comes it that so great an improve ment in the discipline and arrangement which he sees with much pleasure, but] If he believed the Vgibbet was required to punian crime he would go and wage war against these prison discipline Societies that go in any way for abreviating punishment J and would exhort all to quit from being kind to the finning child: but the sinner might think crime a good and unpumshnble thing. A clergyman this day had said to him that it was dangerous for a murderer even to remain in prison. Sir, said I, eighteen hundred years ago a character worse than aU was brought to the Saviour for condemnation, what was his reply ? " Go, and sin no more." And he was wiser than wc arc of what was for the interests of the sinner and community at large. The clergyman repled, Sir, the reason of this reply was that she'had not been tried and found guilty by a regular tribunal! And if she had, he would have joined in her punishment! ! Would the Saviour have carried thin doctrine out? Imagine to-day when James Eager was taken from the Tombs for exe cution, if the person who killed bim was pure and Bcocoful; if Jesus Christ would have assisted at it.? uch an idea seems horrible (and he did not wish to shock anybody in the room,) but unless you believe that no could have done it you are unjust, and defame his holy memory in associating it with the gibbet It is said that the gibbet is necessary to inspire terror in the hearts of the community ; then why were they not allowed to witness the ennobling and atail ing sight? Why not select! some noble amphitreatra and there calling together the men, women and children of this city, execute your man, and if the idea was to instil a wholesome terror, let them witness it. And why, it life is so sacred, and its taking ia so solemn, why not choose a day when men could take advantage of it I He was struck with the remark of Mr. Channing, that there had been no feeling exhibited on this day. It an example were necessary, why not take a time when community were ready to listen to it? Had it been done on the gab bath day, and in presence of children, and the execution er been a clergyman, there would have been a solemnity attached to it, nut tho feeling of the whole community re ject this. But the law has decided that this dreadful ex ample shall be performed secretly, so that none shall have advantage of it Among the crowd assembled in the vicinity ol the prison and ondeavoring to obtain a spot where a glance at the dreadful scene might perchance be obtained, what feeling was predominant' That of feeling! No, the reverse. He went on to allude to the visit of Gough, and the Hutchinsons to the State prisons, and the force of their kindness to tho prisoners, as a proof of their openness to reasoning; and concluded with a severe no tice of those clergy who maintain the dooti ine of hanging, amidst some applause. Mr. Dr.i.!., of Kentucky, being called upon, said, Ladies and Gentlemen :?I should be sorry?very sorry?if i>ne of the remarks made by the gentleman who preceded me were true, and that is, that the people arc losing faith in Christianity. I dont believe it. There may bo individuals, and there may be societies who have lost faith in the forms of Christianity ; but thero is an essen tial principle, and vital one, in it which no society, or no man can gainsay; that was as self-evident and palpable,ns that two and two make four ; and among them is tha one you recognizo, in the repudiation of capital punishment. Nothing, sir, in my visit to your city, affords me greater pleasure than my attondance at this meeting to-night. No subject appears to me more clear and satisfactory than the proposition that in the infliction of capital punish ment wo outrage all the instincts, the sympathies, tho charities of our nature. Why, when I first thought of the subject, it flashed on my mind like a flood of light. Everything charitable, good and sympathetic in otir na ture, is against it; nnditistho plainest, simplest thing postihlo. It is not because the poople are losing faith in Christianity, but because they have not allowed them selves to think. The world is so occupied by its own pursuits, that it will not allow itself time to think, i defy any sensible, honest man, to sit down and reflect half an hour on the subject, without rising with the conviction that capital punishment is wrong. My fri?nds, individual character is formed on the collective character. If society has a right to take life, so have I. If soclctv has a right to tnko life, I have a right to pull a pistol out of mv pocket and shoot the man who offends me. Now I feel tho thing porhaps more than yon, living in Kentucky as I do, where pistols und bowic knives are ns common as watches ; and oven the students at Tiansylvania College, carrv pistols qnlte commonly. I look upon it as an insult to this andlenee? to the understanding of the country?for any man to say capital punishment Is nccessary for ettmple. Example ! (Jo mid get the Newgate Calendar, glean it, and yon will ind thai places of public execution are those where vioe and crime most pro vail. There never was an exe cution which was not disgraceful to human nature. I re pent it -it is the aggrrgato character ol society that gives the habits und customs to children ; these children grow up and tierome men. When they grow up to JO or 22 years, thinking themselves men, they think also thoy liuvc a light to cany a pistol or bowic knife, and use them when insulted. Can any thing ho plainer than that those executions connive at murder and assassi nations? Who can donbt that they do not cause these und other crimes? This is so plain, that it would lie nn of. fence to I ho audience to reiuon upon it. II' society has a right to take life, so have I; and nothing struck me with | more horror than the sentiments I heard from pro fissitig Christians. Vengeance is mine snith the I,ord. In tho name of truth. Mr. Chairman, what more is wanted than this I It is not worth l my while to tn'k of the effects of hanging. I could not begin to talk ol tho harm done among those who are left behind the victim. To fling from tho gallows into eter nity the erring-victim, ono would suppose enough to end this law, but the oflects on the poor wife and motherless children are such a* to baffle description. What becomes of the wife, the manly sons, the virtuous daughter* 'W him who ffoet to the gallows ? Where can they fly for refuge t No State-no city?no foothold In the land will receive them, and there I* not n plnre on this earth where they can find protection. My friends, (or such hapless outcasts there Is no aid ; shame is their portion, anil this ftct is enough to warrant tho abolition 01 hang ing. An 1 nnn ,-lr, l.will not dotaln this audience further than to say, i shall bo happy to hare my nam* entered aa a membetof your society, En^^jeg't^ro^WSS^So tution? Resolved, That Christianity in it* most manifest injunc tions?that every fact in naturv that snrrounds us?that human experience in all times?that reason and common sense, all directly prove that the object of human punish ment is and ought to be reformed. Mr. K*<o.iih next addressed the meeting. He observed that thefe was much error in thinking that he was op Cosed to the law for punishing crime ; it was quite true e was opposed to hanging, but his views were much op posed to tliose he heard to-night from the gentleman who had spoken. Ho did not care a crack of his linger as to the result of this question in reference to its bearing on human life abstractly, He did not look Upon human lite as of any value, if it wero necessary to take it awlv for the good of society. If the public safety required the sacrifice, he looked upon life as worth nothing, per tt. But experience hail taught that this capital punishment was productive of no good object, nor detorred from crime, and that it would De good policy to abolish it alto gether. I do not ask myself what are the dogmas of this sect or that?although I profess myself a Christian : this is a plain matter of government; it is a Question of law? of simple municipal law, and nothing else. It presents itself to us as citizens of the republic, and nothing else. What are the ends of law 7 Are they revenge 7 If they are, I do not know a single commentator or legislator who understands the spirit of our laws. The object of law is to deter from crime ; and to deter, they must be terrible. How are they to be terrible 7 I tell vou, if you make them sanguinary?if you scatter blood like water through the land, the inward sympathy that lives in the breasts of men will not let them execute your law?will prevent them. The terror of the law, I say, is its cer tainty. If laws are not certain, they are not terrible ; and if they are not terrible, they are good for nothing. Law can be evaded. 8ome observant author has said, that all laws were liko a net, in which tho strong pass through and the weaker arc caught. And why is this 7 Why Ts it that the poor man is caught, and the rich, who has money to bribe the executive, or to ride on popular jjavor, oscapos 7 How would such law deter individuals from committing crime I How do they benefit the com munity 7 I have heard it here admitted this very evening that capital punishment was an ordinance of wise men, originally devised to prevent crime. It was no snch thing. In the early times of society, when the man with strong arm and coat of mail, ana dexterous sword, prevailed against his antagonist, the friends of the latter were obliged to take up his ouarrel and have vengeance, and so it was transmitted rrom one to another and society kept continually in a turmoil. At last it was determined to transfer this vengeance taking from the hands of individuals?this was not done to pre vent hanging, but to confer the power on the State that was before held by individuals. And yet they tell you the law has no feelings of revenge. Neither has it if properl v executed : but I say the origin of law is in re venge tho most hellish. (Applause.) The efficiency of laws is their certainty. Now, how many criminals, ac cording to the records of our Courts, are convicted in the course of a year, in proportion to those who escape 7 Is this right 7 Is this conscientious 7 Is this the spirit of Justice, that one man is punished and another escapes 7 * In Philadelphia, whence I have returned to-day, they have for years been prosecuting and convicting crimi nals for murders, time after time, and I have just learned that at last they have got the length of executing ono poor negro. Mr. E.'s remarks were directed to show that a modified and softened criminal code would prevent crime more eflectually than the present, if the penalties were certain and inevitable?but so long as the law existed as it is, he would not oppose its enactments. A collection was taken up to defray the expenses of the room and the meeting adjourned after a couple of flourishes in the defenco of the clergy by David Hale. Literary Intelligence.?Collyer, a printer in this city,in combinotion with some of the publisher* throughout the country, has commenced the publi cation of Thier's famous "History of the Consulate and the Empire." The first number has been issued at 12fc cents, and the work will be completed in six or eight numbers, at the same price. Thiawork has cre ated an extraordinary sensation in Europe, and will be, we are confident, one of the most popular publi cations ever issued in this country. Thier's received #100,000 for the copyright from the Parisian pub lisher, and Gary & Hart, of Philadelphia, paid him a thousand dollars for the first sheets. Collyer'n edi tion is, therefore, what is called "pirated." We un derstand that Allison's history netted the Harper's $30,000, not one per cent of which was paid by those generous publishers to the author. Thier's history will create a profound sensation in this country, and the publishers will probably issue hundreds of thou sands of copies, and make immense sums of money by the sale. With regard to the Work itself, we have something to say hereafter. It is a most remarkable produc tiod?original in the highest degree, and furnishes by far the most accurate and extensive data on which to base just philosophical views of the French Revo lution, with which we have been yet furnished from any quarter. From South America.?The Emma, Captain Wait, arrived at this port last evening, after a pass age of twenty days from Maracaibo. We learn from Captain W. that there were strong prospects of a disturbance between the governments of Vene zuela and New Grenada, in consequence of a dispute respecting the province of Guajira, both parties claiming the possession of it. Six hundred troops had been ordered out at Maracaibo. It was gene rally sup|K)sed that the disputed territory would fall into the hands of the Venezulians, as they were more powerful than their neighbors of New Grena da. Cuptain W. also states that coffee was abundant at Maracaibo at the time of his leaving. The Sicilian Frigate.?The handsome vessel now lying in our harbor, belonging to the King of the Two Sicilies, is now in line order, and has been visited by several of our most respectable citizens. She is greutly admired. The King of Naples has, we believe, another frigate of the same size, and also a number of steam vessels, which compose his inina ture navy. Really, this frigate is worth a visit. Thk Bai.timohk Postmastkr.?A few days ago our Baltimore correspondent made some remarks about the new Postmaster of that city, stating that he was a whig. We have every reason to beheve that this is an error. Mr. Buchanan, according to the best information we have, has been distinguish ed as u democrat for many years, and is deservedly esteemed for his excellent character in public and private life. Phila dki.i'hia Hotels?Look out Travellers ?Green peas, fresh salmon and strawberries were served at Ilartwell's, Washington House, Philadel phia, on Wednesday.
