J. G. Bennett, Estj.? It is with regret that I have read your repeated cnticwra. of Association, and the manner in which it nas been confounded with doctrines of a commu nity of property, infidelity, Sec. See., with which it ? nas nothing in common. Your paper, with its large circulation, must have prejudiced a great many minds against it, and I desire through the same me | diumi to explain what Association really is, its aims, and the principles upon which it is based. Association aims at a Social Reformation?at a i reform which shall go to the root of the evils that afflict the great body of mankind, the rich as well as the poor, and oiler some effectual means of eradica ting tlicm. Association decjares that these evils are far more social and industrial in their nature than political, particularly in this country, and that politi in (j can "Nle or nothing towards remedy We beiievc that this movement in favor of a So cial Kefonnation is a true and just one, called for by the sullenng condition of millions of our fellow crea tures, by sound reason^ and by true charily and jus tice. it would seem, in fact, as if the time had arri ved in the history of the race, when the most ad vanced uafions should undertake intelligendy and with foresight, a Social Reform, after having gone through, as tney have, so many political, legislative, religious, and other reforms: it would seem as if Providence, in its mercy, had at length decreed that man should emerge from the long career of suffering through which he has gone, and it is in the light of this faith diat we explain the reason why this great problem is beginning to be agitated at the present time, far and wide, among the civilized nations of the earth. Let us glance at the progress which it is making, and its condition in some of the nations of Christendom. In France, where so many political reforms have been tried and with such fruitless or disastrous results, independent and investigating minds have become convinced of their impotency, and have gradually had their attention drawn to a deeper re form?to n reform in the social organization itself, instead of in the government and ad numeration. ^The idea of a social reformation is penetrating in consequence into nearly all the spheres of ntblic life in France?into the press, into politics and legislative deliberations, into the teach ings of political economy, and into literature. In I ans, two daily papers, La Democratir Pacifitiuc. and La Reformc, besides some weeklies and re views, are devoted to the cause, edited for the most part, with great ability, and advocating and pressing this great question upon the attention of the people. In the sphere of politics, where nuturally less free dom exists, the fundamental part only of the ques tion, and that in the shape of the organization of labor and an industrial reform has come up ; this, however, is the true and practical commencement of a social reform,Tand it is exciting the attention of nearly the whole press of France, and already counts among its advocates many of the lending minds of the nation. By the last arrivals of the French pa pers, we observed in the Journal rfes Dtbatt, even the principal conservative paper of Paris and minis terial organ, four long columns upon the subject, a thing unthought of ten years since, and RI. L6dree Rodin, member of the Chamber of Dfeputies, lately presented n petition, covered with forty-one thou sand signatures, praying for an inquest into the con dition of the laboring classes, and the state of labor, which was got up by the friends of the organiz ation of labor. These are trifles, but they show that the auestion is taking hold strongly of the public mind. In political economy, Blanqui and Michel Chevalier, who occupy the two principal chaira de voted to this science, in the Universities of Paris discuss the questions of Association and an Indus trial Reform, with perfect freedom, and with a ta lent that is remarkable, and is giving a new direc tion to the investigations of poBticaT economy. M. Ctevnli", who has lately been elected member oi the Chamber of Deputies, made in one of his late C9urs#8, the following declaration, which sums up his views upon this great question, and which is u prophecy as profound as it is concise. "As the question of Liberty," said he,?" has oc ctipied the attention of the world for the last fifty years, so the auestion of Association and the Orga nization of .Labor, will occupy it for the next fifty years to come." And this is true ; political reforms have engaged the attention of the world, and with un absorbing in tensity for the last half century ; the results which they can produce have been fully demonstrated in the United States, and although great in many res pects, yet insufficient. Now comes the time for the study and discussion of a Social Reform, as the continuation and completion of all past reforms, and its ap|)lication in such ways as the genius of diilerent nations shall dictate. In Literature this great problem has found in rranee some powerful allies and advocates; one of its noblest champions is Eugene Sue. It was under the inspiration ot this new Bocial idea that he wrote the Mysteries of Paris. His first effort in this di rection, and its success, as well as that of the Wan dering Jew, in which the ideas of Association, the organization of labor, and a social reform, are more fully developed, shows how broad a field the grand conceptions of a mere just and fortunate order of things and a higher and happier destiny for man on earth throws open to literature. A kind and gener ous heart beats in the boBom of Eugene Sue, and his pen and his intelligence are hereafter gained to the sacred cause of social reformation, and the eleva tion of the human race. We have not space to cn >?? further into the social movements in France, but the little which we have said, shows its magnitude, and that it is not based upon a visionary idea, but upon one full of living truth and justice, and which gainsjto its cause the allegiance of minds of a practical as well as a poetical character. In (Germany, the people of which appreciate so well universal principles, this new social movement is interesting the higher philosophic and literary minds on the one hand, ana to some extent the lead ing industrialists or master-workmen on the other.? It is also beginning to excite the attention of portions of the religious world. In Germany the separation between the wages classes or prolitartet, and the employers, is not so profound as in France and England. A certain de gree of sympathy and union exists between thein, notwithstanding the conflict of interests, the jeal ousies and rivalries which the competition system engenders, and this sympathy and union do great honor to the humane, honest and social character of the German people. This feeling is arousing the leaders in industry, who see that free competition, monopolized machinery, and other principles of mo dern industrialism, are sure to bring the people into the destitution and pauperism that exist in England, where the system has been longer at work, and they are looking with deep interest to the question of the devotion of the laboring classes, and a reform capa ble of effecting this result. In the sphere of philosophy several distinguished minds are devoting their labors to this social move ment, and also in the sphere of literature. In the latter, I will mention only the celebrated Hettina Amine, known more in this country for her corres pondence with Goethe, and certainly one of the most remarkable women of the age. She has lately written a work on the subject; and occupying, as she does, a high place in society, and being cele brated for her genius, she has all Germany for her r?'blie. Another distinguished author, llcinrich Heine, the Sterne of Germany, has written in his peculiar manner upon the question, and is urousing I enquiry, and exciting thought. | The (.tormnns have never taken much interest in the shallow politieal reforms, and the legislative controversies of the modern liln-ral party in Kun>|>e.

The profound instinct ot the jx'ople has taught diem that something deeper was to lie sought for?(hat far more diorougli and organic reforms must be under taken to effect any really great and beneficial re salts. In this grand question of asocial reformation, they wilKfind, as they did, in their religious refor mation, an understanding worthy of their deep sin cerity and philanthropy, and their devoted enthu siasm, and they will move in it, we believe, from what we have ohsewed, and from signs abroad, with the power which they have always shown when a tnily great, just and universal cause, updat ed to their conscience and their sympathy. I^et us speak briefly of the progress of this social movement in one more naiien?in the United States. Here, where perfect freedom for the ex pression of opinion, and the propagation of new ideas exists, and the people are intelligent enough to comprehend new principles, the question of asocial Kefonn has been advocated in a direct and positive manner, and a definite plan has been pro|K>sed for ef fecting it. Anew order of Society, based upon the great principles of Association (which is the Chris tian principle of brotherhood, applied to the social a Hairs of man) upon a system of honorable and at tractive industry, upon unity of interests, and the harmonious act ion and play of those springs of ac tion emplanted in man, called afleelions ana passions ?has been advocated and pro|>os?l in the place of the present order of things, based upon opposite princi ples, upon the general isolation and uisasKociaiion of classes and families, upon repugnant and degrad ing industry, upon the conflict ot all interests, social servitude, and the discordant and perverted action of the passions and affections.

If, there fore, he saw the danger, it would be his duty to guard against it ami not to expatriate himself, as it were, and cease to do all h?i could for the safety of his country. No matter what danger, surround us ,we should (? on j that an American christian would but poorly discharge hii (lutiei to his country and hi* God, who, because of. the danger* which were apparent to hii riiion, withhold! his exertions in the conflict of opinion, which i* now going on around u*. At the preMnt moment, we want laborers. We want a band of devoted christians to labor in the machinery of christian enterprise. We want such men as Wilberforce, willing to rise or fell, br the rising or falling fortunes of the land that gave them birth. What if Europe were pouring in her thousands upon us, have we not room for them T I trust in God that the simple truism spoken of this country, as the refuge of the oppressed of all nations of the earth, may be perpetuated. I have no sympathy with that narrow, selfish spirit that would bar the door to the honest emigrant from other climes, or leek, by the increase of the term in which he could eiuoy the franchise, to deter his coming among us. Such an idea, in this country, is the most visionary of . any that ever entered the mind of man. It could never be accomplished, and ought not, if it could. In view of 1 our vast extent of territory, and the naturo of our gov ernment*, which are calculated to exalt humanity, the wonder to me is, not that the emigrants seek our shores, but that they do not crowd upon ua in greater number*. Let them come. I have no fear* of the result to ua. 1 have more faith in the character of our people and the uuritv of our religion to fear harm from such a source. Let them como among u*, and let u* baptize them in the enjoyment of our own free initiations. The great evil with ui is, that we are too prosperous, and, a* one of the results of our neglect to be duly thankful to the Almighty giver of all good, we see that prosperity manifesting it self in an increasing Protestant sectarianism throughout the land. We are becoming entirely too sectarian. I think I am correct, but I should be rejoiced if I should rove to be mistaken. I think we can see our Christian rethren drawn away in sectarianism from the great saving truths of our holy religion. This spirit of sect and creed is the subtle form In which the great tempter ?iiorts with the happineas and the lalvation of mankind. And accordingly we see on one hand episcopacy elevated as if there were no saving virtue beyond It; Methodism and other sects exalting their creeds as if only salvation was to be found in them. I admire the attachment of men to the churches to which they give in their adhesion. I admire the love of the Presbyterian or the Baptist to his church, and 1 claim for Kpiscopacy the same degree of affection from those who have adopted that mode ol religion. But, while admitting this, let U* not fritter away Protestantism?which 1 believe to be, under God, tiie safety of this country-? by en couraging the sectarian influences which now surround it Tho speaker referred to the American Sunday School Union as the instrument which was to do away with the spirit of sectarianism, and to guard against the dangers which had been threatened; and he said that if we could only give the schools the proper direction, these birds of ill omen might take flight. We can go on with our extensive enterprises?increase our population ?say to the population of Europe, come on and share witli us the blessings of freedom and pure religion, and we will let our legislative (lowers be within the reach of popular influences?a vital principle in our republican scheme of government; one which contemplates virtue in a people, and without which there is no safety. The Rev. gentleman then enumerated the advantages arising from this Union, one of which was the extension of Bi ble learning among the people. He said the success of the common school system was us yet problematical. When he looked upon it, he saw the two great divisions of the Christian community, the Catholic and Protestant, already jealous of each other with regard to the influ ence each might exert in tho public schools. They were watching each other with lynx eyes. An attempt had been made to remove the Bible from the public schools; and although ho deprecated such, and would stand with the Protostnnt community, shoulder to shoul der, in resistance, yet he could not see, with the princi ples which obtained in relation to our form of govern ment, how it was to be avoided. If the Bible were not excluded, it at least would be a dead letter to the youth ful mind, and it would be the business of the Sunday School to supply the deficiency. It was in supplying this deficiency in communicating Bible learning to the young, which they could not get at the public schools, which constituted tho true value of the American Sun day School Union. It was the great opponent of Anti Christ. " And what," said Dr. Johns, " is Auti-Chriat 1 It is the world, the flesh, and the devil, backed by the Bishop of Rome." The Rev. gentleman concluded by saying that we had a great battle to fight against this combination, and tiiat wo must fight it not with the wea pons of Rome, but with persuasion, truth, prayer and humility. The only antagonist of Popery is true reli gion. The Rev. Dr. Pahkkr, of this city, and others, follow ed ; after which the congregation dispersed. The choir previously sung a hymn, and concluded with these lines of the doxology :?

Levi Leland, the Quaker Temperence Lecturer, stated tho.other day at Woonsocket, (R.

It i* said that he will pass rapidly along both shores of Lakes Krie and Ontario, and return to Kngland with all convenient speed. While all present Meaol laying down the keels of the iron steam frigatos at Kingston Dock Vard must be abandoned, ! wo cannot help feeling that the prompt attention of the Board of Admiralty to the defenceless state of Canada, in 1 sending out their Builder, to inspect the actual condition of things on both sides, proves that abandoning the Canadas to the aggressions of our Yankee neighbours, is the last thing to be apprehended.?Kingtton H Ai>.

[Correspondence of the Herald.] Rochester, May 20, 1846. Our city for the butt week lias been in quite an uproar, caused by the appearance of Mr. Green, the reformed gambler. However good Mr. G.'b inten tions may be, or however much benefit he may have done other sections of the country in exposing the sccrets, games and tricks of the "gambling fra ternity," it is a general and conceded fact among the intelligent ones of this community, that he is doing more in one week to injure the young men of Rochester than all the secret gamblers that infeat our city could do in a year. The lancinating excite ment that Mr. G. describes as being produced by gambling, has induced many an old and young man to try the reality of his statements. Since he has been here our gambling houses have never been more crowded, out this is not all. If the curtain that hung before the window of a certain respecta ble house on Fitzhugh street, could have been drawn on a certain evening of last week, any "passer by" could have seen in that room a table, around which sat several respectable gentlemen, very busily en gaged with a pack of cards, and trying to win each others money, by performing the very tricks that Mr. Green had explained to them but a few days be fore. Mr. Green, in his lectures, throws out so ma ny inducemets for young men to make an easy liv ing by gambling, that quite a number of young men in this city have made up their minds to try it a lit tle while. No other excitemeut but this gambling business has troubled our city since election. Business is not as good as it was last year. The weather has been changeable and unpleasant.

These assault* were committed at sea, on the 10th of August last. Wil son, having accidentally received a severe hurt in his knee from an axe, was unable to move round as lively as Wadey wanted him to do ; and on the day named, while Wilson was sitting down, he slapped hun across the ihoulders with a cutlass till he made him rise. Ho then pricked him in the breast with the weapon. Wilson now negan to resist, and Wadey clenched him, tore his shirt oil. threw him down, forced a pump bolt into his mouth, and kept it there several minutes. No *ub*tan tiai defence was made out, and the jury returned a ver dict of guilty on both count*. On the arrival of the Autumnat New Vork, some weeks since, Wilson brought a civil action tor damages, which Wadey compromised by paying Subsequently a boarding-house keeper carried the matter before the U.
