THE NEW VORK HERALD. a..?-?*.,.,,NEW YORK, SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 16, 1845. pt.~tw.cu. (treat Temperance Mkktino.? National Hall was filled to an overflow on Thursday evening, su perindueed, us we suppose by the announcement that the Rev. Thomas Spencer, of the Episcopal Church, Rath, England, had yielded his consent to ad dress those favorably disjtosed toward this move ment on this occasion. We should judge that a new impetus?a fresh impulse?was awakened upon this subject, from the seal and enthusiasm manifest ed in this instance, for we never saw a more atten tive auditory, or one more capable of deep feeling, than was here so assembled. After the usual preliminaries, Master Roberts, a lad of some twelve years of age, executed in pleas ing taste a popular air on the accordion, when Mr. McDonough sung a spirited ode to the agreeable mu. sic of Russell's " Woodman spare that tree," with very general acceptance. The Rev. 9. S. Bachus, from Auburn, wan then for mally presented to the audienct by the President, who remarked that, stranger as he was to the large majority present, yet he lelt called upon, as a minister of the gos pel, to unite, with others, his humble influence in the suppression of a vice so utterly inconsistent with the real happiness of his fellow man. in Cayuga county, the scene of his pastoral duties, the question >, no longer asked, " Does the indulgence of alcoholic drinks cot rupt the morals or destroy the mind V There it is held as self-evident and conclusive ; nnd ho was happy to observe that here?the commercial emporium of tne new world?a similar spirit prevailed ; and he hoped that a re-cousiderution of the law, exompting this great and populous city from similar privileges the community in which he lived enjoyed,would he one among the first,as it is one of the most important duties ofourRtate Legisla ture;?he alluded to the license- law. We employ lec turers, or rather assist them in their otHces ot kindness, by enabling them with our means to extend their efforts in reclaiming the drunkard from his inglorious ease and indifference. Meetings are called?societies established to promote our influences, yet petitions to our Legisla ture are frequent and imposing, which tend to the crip pling of our energies, and the exhaustion of our sub stance. Look about you. and witness your three thou sand tippling shops, in which, by means of a trifling sum of purchase mane v, men are licensed to kill by do/.ens, as cattle in your slaughter-houses?for " The court awards it, and the law Doth give it." At your elections, an excitement is made sufficient in it self to onable a large vote to tie polled, securing candi dates for ofllce favorably inclined towards the granting of licenses?a hue and cry is made, a storm is raised ft vorable to this end, because, forsooth, it smacks of liher ty ! Liberty, indeed'. Who that is not blind to the in terests of his fellow-mun, can for a moment doubt the in jurious and debasing effects resulting from the use of al coholic stimulant 7 Does it not paralyse the affections? the sympathies of our natures -corrupt the social char acter?engender family quarrel?destroy the peace of mind?impair our faculties?stain our reputation, and tlast our future prospects 7 " It takes away the power of motives to do right, And gives us the power of motives to do wrong." Our clergymen should be active in this enterprise?'tis timo for them to act, and, by the blessing of Providence, 1 hope wo may become at last a sober, thinking and vir tuous people; and having occupied the time assigned my self, give way most cheerfully to one distinguished abroad for his unceasing and valuable exortions in this good and glorious cause of Temperance. The Rev. Mr. Si'knckh was then introduced, who spoke nearly as follows : - It is a very fine sight, in any coun try, to see men and women gathered together for tho pro motion of any object; but when I see around me this large collection of happy faces, actuated by one common impulse,and forjthe very'best of purposes, I>m constrained to acknowledge this as one of the happiest moments of iny life. How many, think you, among your large popu lation, are wholly ignorant of a remarkable phenom enon which is now taking place in the Armament above us?the eclipse of tho moon. Vet a greater eclipse is that of Intemperance ; ami yot, even this is regarded by little else than with a spirit of indifference. How similar these events 7 Intemperance makes men mad?they he rome lunatics, and the Latin for moon is Luna ; hence the del ivntion and the similarity. Your reputation abroad, my good friends, is not such as to make you enviable for its distinction in one of itn peculiarities. You aro char acterized as a "nation of drunkards," nnd from what I hare seen and gathered from your own admissions, you scetn somewhat qualified in this particular. I say this "more in sorrow than in anger," and hope from further developments, to he enabled to shield you from so dis gtaceful an imputation, by n more extended intercourse among you as a people. This vice, however, is not alone confined to you us a nation. We, too. have a knowledge of tho consequences of ttiis world-spread ev'l. Even our bishops?tho dignitaries of tho church?make themselves liuble to denunciation, and frequently expose their sen sua I infirmities 1 could rclata many instarccs of this kind to sustain me in this declaration ; it is, however, a painful theme, and 1 dismiss the sorrowful contemplation of it?besides it might appear somewhat irrelevant to the majority. I find mors activity among your clergy in this country towards the extending and carrying out this great and heaven-horn enterprise, than that exhibited by the clerical order of cither England ot Wales Some of our clergy deny themselves participa tion in this matter, because, they say. the Bible incul cates no such thing as the formation of Tomporance so cieties. In like fashion I would ask, do we read in holy writ any thing to encourage us in the formation ot Bible societies, Missionary societies, institutions for the blind, the deaf and dumb ' Ministers of the gospel t eod no' consolo themselves, tliereforo, by such studied indiffer ence in regard to one of the greatest objects that ever yet engaged the attention of tho true philanthropist?for it is specially enjoined by Divine command, upon kings and princes, and others in authority, " Drink no strong drinks." There are many illustrations of similar import, and of liko character, to which it is needless to reler It is enough that wo are commanded to do good, and that with all our might, our zeal and strength. I have clear ed my position thus tar, I hope, satisfactorily. A few woids now to the young man Let me conjure you by all tho hopo you have of present or future happiness to deny yourself the first glass?the incipient step being most dangerous, as it oftimes proves most fatal, far " ill habits gather by unseen degrees, as urooKs 10 rivers, rivers run to seas. Avoid ell show or appearance of evil -be not deceived | by false assurances or mistaken friendships, and you will grow up eminent in the sphere ol usefulness- command ing the respect of all classes, and the admiration o( the world. A contrary course will he disastrous to your in fluence in society, and fatally injurious to your happi ness and henlth. Common sense is the best regulator in j the control of our passions, and is particularly useful in all the avocations ot lite. Cherish common sense as youi dnily companion, and j ou will all he good tee totallers My word for that. Chailes Dickens, in his work upon America (and in whose representations I have no confi donee.) complains in his scries of lamentations, that, in some districts, ho was unable, in his travels.to obtain his cherished brandy and water. Now, in my travels, I em apprehensive of no such cause for complaint, for I pre sume cold water is generally prevalent, and that at the different stopping places I may be enabled to find at least a pump ! I have no fear of these condemned districts?for " Water, bright water, cold water for me," which cheers hut not intoxicates?strengthens the do mestic affections and our fireside happiness. From what 1 have said i hope to gain your testimony in favor of cold water as a hove rage: to the entire^disuse ot all that can by possibility intoxicate?by a scrupulous exactitude and unwavering self-denial you will find happiness in this world and a bright reward in the world to corao. He was followed by Dr. Kitby, Dr. Iteeso, Mr. Marsh and Alex. Welsh, in their happiest style. The last named gentleman 'was inimitably good and perspicuous in illustration. A large collection was tnken up and thr meeting adjourned to Thursday night next at the Tnbcr nacle, wheio the Itev. Mr. Spencer was invited to nd djess them, and to which he responded by a willing us sent. __________ From C/vrK ILaytikn.?A corrPupond'Mit ol the Philadelphia Kxchango writes from < ape Ilaytien, un der date of October lftth, as follows :? The ilritish hug Apollo arrived here on the llth from Liverpool, having touched at Torto Hate. The cargo, alter some delay, was allowed to ho entered at the cus tom house by special " favor;" but ten thousand dollais in Ilaytien paper, remitted by a merchant of Porto Plate to his correspondent here, was seized by government, pursuant to the law, lately published, forbidding nil commerce with the Spanish part. All communication with the Spanish pait, of whatevci natuir, is now forbidden, under the severest penalties, and tinder date of the Mh, government orders all foreign ?rs to leave that part oi the Island within one month, on pain of being considered accomplices in tho insurrec tion. It hnx, however, no power to make this order known to tho parties interested. '1 hreo or four of the largest national vessels are now undergoing repairs. Tnis will delay the expedition against the Dominicans somewhat, as tho army will not march until the fleet is ieady to sail. The leaders ol the late insurrection at Lengone have been tried, and were acquitted, on account, as is alleged, ol informality --one of the Judges being tinder age. The ? ominissioners sent some months since to France, for the purpose of obtaining, if possible, some reduction, and un extension of timu on tho French claim, havo re - turned without effecting anything. Coffee, in the l'aco of the increased duty to commence 1st November, bus now risen to 17 conts. This continual rise is psrtly owing to scarcity, and partly to the depre ciation ol the currency fiom the constant new issues of paper. More of Potts vim.it.?We learn from the An thrntitt Gunttt, that at present the Korough of pottsvilln contains 1300 houses, exclusive of churches and hotoli; 430 of these are constructed ol brick and ?.tunc, and 779 nre frame buildings.

who has recently returned huin Europe, states, that in tiie Baptistconglegations in England, "all tho people, so soon as they enter their pews, inako a short prayer, o stond in silcnco, in an attitude of roverenco and worship And when tho last p;aj er is made, mid the benediction if nlfered, you might hear a pin drop for a few seconds, so silent is the whole congregation, while a bles-ung is ask ed certainly by the pious in the assembly, and it may br by otheis, in their way." Dr. 8. adds, " whatever objec tions may be made to this practire on tho ground of for malism, I believe that it is greatly conducive to spiritu aiism."
