Spencer delivered the opening lec ture, for the winter, belore the Voting Men's Association, lust evening, at the First Presbyterian Church in this city The occasion drew together a large and highly respecta ble audience, and the address, in my judgment, was worthy of the ex-Secretary. The subject was the or ganization ol the association and the results, generally, of such societies, and the object of this particular asso ciation. It was received with universal approval and a copy of the lecture will probably be solicited for publi cation. The banks are discounting tremendously this fall. The old bills are patched up for use, and overy thing is out in the shape of paper. Since the rain commenced falling, the weather has ma terially changed from cold to mild.

Buildings aie going up rapidly all over the city, and huudreus of men are employed at the upper part of the town, digging away and removing hills and tilling up valleys for the extension of streets.

Mrs H. Hunt is in her element. She continues to be greeted nightly, by crowded and intelligent audiences, with the most marked favor and enthusiasm. She has improved vastly in her appearance since her rcyudier? Her air is distingue, and her face, in my opinion, while upon the stage is perfectly beautiful. Rice has arrived, and the theatrical season, with such a company, promises to be rich. The boat from New York, due at Albany this morning at 3 A. M., did not arrive until I P. M. to-day. There was a very heavy fog upon the river last night, and 1 at tribute her non-arrival to this circumstance. The Hon. J. J. Kllsworth, of Yates, aud the Hon.

Phrenology?Fowler?Mastodon?Sig. Blitz?Thanksgiv ing? Weather. Last evening, Mr. L. N. Kowler, from your city, com menced a course of lectures in this city. Some five to six hundred persons were present, and amongst them tho tlite of oureity. He presented the ground-work and soma of the evidences of the truth of the science of phrenology. He was listened to with marked attention. At the close of the lecture he examined the heads of two of our citizens. The first, that of Judge Seth Terry ; he gave hia character, " even to the splitting of a hair." Judge T. is one of our most substantial citizens, and Mr. Fowler's description of the different and prominent powers of his mind, were given with exactness. Alter this examination, Mr. F. called upon the audience to nominate another person, when Judge T. rose and said, that as it was customary in many cases for persons to nominate their successors, he would nominate Gideon Welles, Ksq. A general applause followed this nomination ; but Mr. W. begged twice to be excused. (This was wrong, he should have stepped up to the " rack"?" fodder or no fodder ") Mr F. said, there of course was no compulsion on this subject, and a further nomination was called for, when Mr. Winter, an ecceatric character, was called out. His physiog nomy and character is well known here, to be almost the antipodes of Judge T's. although he has doue nothing bad. This case Mr. Fowler described exactly. As Mr. F. is to remain here some time, we anticipate a rich treat in phrenological science. The " fossil remains," (manufactured !) at Newburxh, have been removed hence. Sig. Blitz'* last entertainment, one half the proceeds of which were to be given to the Orphan Asylum in this city, netted the handsome sum of $ftO to said Asylum ; tlie receipt of which the O. A. Treasurer acknowledges through our paper*. We take it, this was done by "a little of my powder and, whilst the orphans bless him, "they will not have to tell how it was done !"

This has been commemorated annually since that time.

All of which songs will be sung this evening, every few miles distance, in Connecticut, and interspersed with kissings to match. It is also a day on which children return home, making , it a universal custom to meet at the old fire-side of their | parents.

Horriule Outrages in thk Cherokee Nation.? Saturday evening last, just alter dark, six or seven arme l men, with their faces blacked, approached tho dwelling of .Vr. K. J. Meigi, about three miles east of this place. As they came to the door they asked for admit tance, and Mr. Meigs, supposing that he recognised the voice of a neighbor, threw open the shutter of a window, through which the muzzles of five gunt were thrust and pointed at him. He moved tJ one. side, and seized a double barrel shot gun, which he knew to be empty at the time, and threatened to shoot if an at tempt was made to take his life. After several minutes wore spent in parley, during which thev tried to obtain admittton, nssuring him that they would not hurt him, but retiming to set their guns inside the window at his request,he expressed a willingness to open the door and let them in. He then approached a back door, which was not locked, opened it and rushed out, receiving without injury, a fiie from one of hit astailantt who haa run round the hoino and was within a few feet of the door. As the night was dark, the villaint did not pur sue him, but entered the house, ransacked its contents, and then fired it. The housa and all it contained were consumed, there being nothing left except its blackened walls and chimneys. At the time, Mrs. Meigi and chil dren were providentially on a visit, at Park Hill, or doubtless the whole lamily would have been massacred and comumtil with the building. Mr. Meigs succeeded ' the um night in malting bis way about five miles, to the house ol his father-in-law, Mr. John Ron, grateful that he nad lucceeded in escaping a horrible death, though sadly worsted in worldly things. The object of the villains was robbery and murder. As it wan, they did not get a cent in money, but took 1 away, or destroyed, besides valuable household properi y, sevoral hundred dolluts in national certificates. On the Tuesday .evening following, Nov. 4, a report reached Tahlequah, that the body of a murdered man had been lourid in the hills about a mile on the other side of Mr. Meigs' lately destroyed residence. A large number of our citizens immediately repaired to the spjt. In place oi one, there were the bodies of two of our fellow-men, who had been butchered in the most awful manner. : Crawford Fox, one of them, was shot through with a rifle ball, to the right of the spine and above the lower ribs, aud stabbed with a large knife just below the led nipple. The other man, Ato-la-hi, had been dragged about fifty steps, and was stabbed once in each side, so that his entrails hung out at one nlace ?was tomahawked in the forehead, and had his tin oat cut, and several gashes on the head.? Their guns laid close by, with their locks taken off, the powder out of the horns, nnd the contents of their shot bags. Their horses were also tied to the limb of a tree. The leaves an< rocks and earth were stained with blood. There were traces where several homes had been hitch ed, where a little fire bad boen kindled, and where per sons had rubbed their hands on a burnt log, doubtless for the purpose of disguising their taces. The bodies looked as if they had laid there several days. They have been brought to this place, and decently interred. These two men lived a half mile, or so, from Mr. Meigs', and went out, on Saturday last, to hunt hogs, when, there is no doubt, they fell in with the bloody vil- j lains, who attempted to assasinate him, and by whom, j without a crime or offence, they were seized, tortured, and butchered, in the hellish manner described. The ' perpetrators of those fiendish outrages, we have already stated are sufficiently known. They belong to the gang of out-laws, who hare already done so many acta of blood and horror in this country. They are the same men. in part, be yond a doubt, who murdered, robbed, and consumed with their dwelling, the Vore family, who murdered Kelly, who assassinated, in the still hour of night, Chas. ' Thornton, who murdered within a week or two since, the Cherokee, Takunna, near hlvansville, and who have committed other acts the most outrageous. They are the same men who hare sworn vengeance against every man in the nation that dare denounce them in befitting terms. Tliey are the same men who have threatened to destroy the lives and propeity oi many of our best citizens, and are now ready, aye, have already com- i menced, to put these threata into execution They are in part those for whose arrest a reward of thousands oi dollars has hung lor nearly ? year without effect.?

Fir* in Savannah.?On Saturday night, about 10 o'clock, a lire broke out in the upper part ot the city, in some small wooden buildings belonging to the estate of H.

The house in which the tire originated was situ ate next to the corner ol an alley leading from Indian street, opposite the Savannah and Charleston bteam Packot wharf, and, the surrounding buildings being of wood, soon caught, and in half an hour after the alarm was given, some four or five buildings were in flames. The fire soon communicated to the buildings on the opposite side ot the alley, belonging to Mr. 0. O'Byme, one of them occupied by Mr. Allen, and the other by Mt. N. Hunt.

Love, Seduction, and Robbery.?Just at the close of the police ollice last night, a very droll ud laughable scene took place. A funny little Dutch woman, with a broad face, very much freckled, light sandy hair, small pig eyes, little pug nose, her body measuring the same in any direction?in fact, the only i'lea which can be formed of this female beauty is, that were she to fall down on a windy day, it would puzzle one to know which end to pick up first?entered the office to make a complaint. She gave the name of Marie l>ouixa Krederica Bohrman. It appears she eloped with a young man by the name of Carl Frederick John Och m?n, from Brunswick, Germany, where they both be long, and arrived in this city three days ago. Yesterday afternoon, while the lair damsel (who, by the bye, is 42 years old, and her lover only 27) was taking her " siesta," he managed to slip the bag of gold, containing between i three and four hundred dollars, from under her head, and " sloped." On awaking, she fait for her gold, when, ! to her astonishment, both money and lovor had vanished, j ?She at once called in the aid of officer Connell, of the 1st Ward, who, after come search, found her runaway lover at Mr. Beck's German boarding-house, corner of Liberty and Washington streets, preparing to go up the river. : She at once charged him with stealing the hag of gold. ! The officer arrested him, and found the gold upon his i person, whereupon bi brought him before Justice Os- I born ; and such a jabbering in Dutch took place !? neither of them sneaking a word of Knglish ?creating great mirth for all present. Officer Hitter, however, was vent for to interpret and explain the matter to the Jus tice ; who, upon hearing the facts in the case, decided that no larceny had been committed, at the same time handing her back the bag of gold. This, however, was too much for this gentle youth, who blubbered out like a big calf, and said he would marry her right away, rather than loose the i money, to which she very willingly gave her consent ; I consequently, off the parties started, under the direction , of officer Ritter, in search of a German minister?(we also formed one of tho party, determined to see the end of this comical tragedy)?for the residence of Mr. Stohl man, pastor of St. Matthew's Church, Walker street, j whereupon this amiable and beloved divine went through a long discourre, in the Oerman language, upon the blessings of matrimony, and concluded by giving them good advice and his best wishes?thus, by turning these two into one, he has formed a very comical piece of mor tality. Had it not been for officer Hitter's interpretation and explanation, which he did with great ability, this poor Dutchman would, in all probability, have been locked up, and the money pocketed by the herd of law- , yers, who hang about the Tombs?tor we saw two or ' three making tracks for the police office-word having been sent to them by their runners, that a man had been arrested with a hag of gold. These hags of gold area great attraction for lawyers of a particular class. Brutal jliiault.?An interesting young woman, of i very genteel appearnuce, came sobbing into the police i office yesterday, the tears rolling down her beautiful : face most pitifully, and her neck showing the marks of ! great violence. When asked by the magistrate who she wished to'complain of,she said she wished to enter a com plaint against her " husband,'' ( harles Jeffords, residing at 31 Hudson street; that he struck her several times , with a brush, and demanded her to bring a cowhide. " Not thinking for a moment what he intended to do," ! she brought him the cowhide, and laid it on the table, when he at once commeaeed heating her in a most riuel manner, which the marks on her person amply show? | for let a woman be ever so bad, there are other means of obtaining redress, without resorting to such outrageous I and brutal conduct. Justice Osborn at once granted a | warrant tor his arrest. liurglary.?The store of P. Cole h Co.. dry goods mer chants, No. U89 Broadway, was entered last night, with a false key, and robbed of a large amount of property, consisting principally of silks and satins, of all colore, very costly: a quantity of silk and kid gloves, rich silk pocket handkerchiefs, silk hosiery, lie. Mr. Cole cannot tell the exact amount of his loss, as yet; but from a rough estimate, yesterday morning, he missed $1,138 worth of property-it will possibly reach near $2,000.? The rascal took lrom the desk $!? 44. This " crack."' bur glary has been done by some of Jack Sullivan's " pals." We cautioned the Police to be on look out,some few days ago, in that neighborhood. Petit lAirceniei ?John Klynn was caught, last night, for stealing a silver watch, and two watch keys, valued at $2 2A, belonging to Margaret Thompson, No. 70 Orange St. Committed. Benjamin D. Smith was caught in the act of stealing a fine, (at turkey, belonging to Mr. Cornell Stringham ? When nabbed, he said, "If 1 did steal him, I didn't eat him." Locked up. Hugh Sheridan and Mary Bennett were both arrested : for robbing Thomas Smith of a silver watch, a cloth cloak, and a lady's hat; also, $6. Recovered all except the money. Committed. Aaron Stone waa caught in the act of driving off a sow, belonging to Peter McGowen. Aaron thought it was time to lay in pork for the winter. Committed. Mr. Daniel Hess, of Washington market, engaged the celebrated Smith Case to cart potatoes.

Thic Star Chamber System -A very illiberal attempt was, a short time ago, made in New York to prevent reporter* for the press from obtaining facts which were necessary to apprise the community of the proceedings which were of daily occurrence in the poliae courts, whereby much inconvenience was caused to many gentleman prominently connected with the " Third Estate;" besides which, injustice being done to the citi zens of the Metropolis and their interest*. A " ?mall potatoe ' effort of the same description has long been essayed by divers magistrates of this city, lor tha espe cial purpose of keeping from the sovereign people the transactions of the courts over which they preside. So far as wo are concerned, we have been enabled to frustrate and defeat their contemptible plans, as means have been placed within our power for the obtainment of every required information, which all their devices cannot crush, nor all their hostility subdue. The acts of the persons alluded to, would be too contemptible for notice, had they not descended to the insolence and despicable meanness of interrogating respectable public officers in relation to matters over which they bare no legitimate supervision or control. We beg to inlorm the men who have thus improperly deported them selves, that the mere adventitious circumstance of their being (peradvenlure through the mero machinery of politics) " invested with a Tittle brief authority," will not be conclusive authority for them to act in a ruffian manner with those who, iu education and ability, are infinitely their superiors, and who, at all times, and under any circumstance, can-if their duties render it necessary?countervail the most deeply laid > f their most ingenious and desperately concocted schemes. Aisrssmkits roa Taxes.?As there are many resident of New Fork?and in places remote from this city?who have real estate in Brooklyn liable to assessments and taxation, we deem it our duty to warn them that uulesa their required (lues he paid on or before Monday next, they will be compelled to pav many extra charges for collection ; besides, perhaps, being subjected to the hu miliation and expense of their property being advertised for sale at public auction. "?^A Nr.w Arkanukmknt.?A very old plaa, which ori ginated in the cuuning speculations of some adventurous "chance makers," has lately been prac'ised by certain individual)) in Brooklyn, in the way of getting up raffling concerns, under the plausible plea of " guessing" at the weights of hogs, and other animals of a like bulky ap pearance?the specific gravi'.y of which was, of coarse, considered to be doubtful and uncertain. An affair of this kind catne olf yesterday, at one of the taverns in this city, which was attended by a vast number of per sons, who engaged in the operation with much apparent zest, in the hope of winning the prize which was os tentatiously placed before them. It would be improper to assert that there was any betting or gambling attended with the event, (because we were not present,) but we know that there is considerable difficulty in ascertain ing fairly who wai the actaal winner of the slaughtered animal; and because, moreover, we kuow that there wai much excitement among the numerous persons aa sembled, in relation to various disputed sums of money which were involved in the issue ? Navy Yard.?Very considerable esMltement hat been caused in the Navy Yard, and more particularly among the authorities thereof, by a publication in this paper, which charged some of the persons attached to that esta blishment with having compelled a number of men be longing to the North Carolina to take the places of seve ral laborers who had been employed in menial services The truth of that statement has not been, nor cannot be, disputed, and the onus of the act must, therefore, remain with those who were the authors of it. interim, there are other circumstances connected with the management and administration of that yard whioh demand the atten tion of the Houorable Secretary of the Navy?of which we are, at present, in almost exclusive possession. It may suffice, for "th 1 nonce," to intimate to the already too much galled com u unity of this country, that disclo sures have lately been made to a select few, revealing habits, on the part of certain distinguished officers, of the most depraved and inn oral character, involving the reputations of females who ,iavo heretotore been consi dered of unblemished reputation, and in one case, at all events, will have the effect of destroying the peace and fair fame ol the daughter of one of the most respectable men in Jackson street. Conditio* of the Streets.?The rain which has re cently fallen, has left the streets of Brooklyn in a most unenviable condition, from which, of course, the city inspectors will relieve them with sdl possible speed. It is to be hoped, however, that the person who has charge of the public lamps will also exert himself to do all in liia power for the purpose of obviating that wretched state of things wherein darkness is merely rendered visible. The appropriations of oil by the municipal au thorities are said to be liberal, and the chief officer of this department of the city is represented to be a man of worthy and exemplary character. It behooves him, therefore, to see that the streets are better lighted than they have lately been, so that way farers on the road may be protected from accidents-, and the property of tradesmen and housekeepers butter guarded from the depredations to which they are now subjected movements of Travellers.

Nov. 98.?This court was simply organizedpr? forma, this morning, and adjourned to the fourth Tuesday in De cember; contrary to eapectation, and to the disappoint ment of the different reporters of the city press, who were in eager pursuit of some rare information regarding the intercepted letters to Polly Bodine. His Honor, the Judge, made no allusion to such matters ; nor bad he any developments to make ; for, as is supposed, these letters, (it auy such there are,) were entirely bsyond his judicial interference, now that the trial is d is mused from uis turther cognizance.

Mr. Bennett : Dear Sir I suggest whether, since the sentenos of O'Connor and Van Sieenburgh is commuted, the friends of humanity ought not to have a meeting (say in the great city of New York) for the purpose of appointing a commit tee whose duty it shall be, lrom time to time, to visit Hiag Sing, to see in what manner those unfortunate individu als may be treated. I say unfortunate, because it is evl dent that nothing but the stern, strict letter ot the 11 w justifies their punishment even by oonlnemeat in prison. They are guilty of murder, it is tine ; they have been legally convicted of murder, it is also true?of the mur der ot an offloer of justice in the discharge ef the duties of bis office : yet the " spirit of the age and of our insti tutions " is evidently opposed to their punishment for this offence, if offence it msy be called Do they nut suffer in the great cause */ frttdoss !
