Boston, Dec 29, 1845. Uough'ti Lecture ? A Ntio Paper?Rev. Theodore Parker?Mr. Burke, tfc, John B. Gough delivered ail address at the 'Pre mont Temple, last evening, to at* many as could possibly crowd into the house, while thousands went away unable to gain admittance. Mr. G. has always drawn full houses in tin* city, where he has spo kon nearly one hundred times, in all; but on the plesent occasion there was an unusuulirush, occasioned no doubt by a general curiosity to see a man of such notoriety, and hear what he would say in extenuation of his own conduct, or in reply to the chargos preferred against him by others. Mr. Gough commenced by saying, that one year ago?that is, tho last Sabbath evening of the last year ?he stood in the sumo place, to spoak on the sub. ject of temperance, and he was glad to tin.) so many persons still iuterosted in that great question He had never presumed to be a teacher- ho had never pre?u med to dictate?ho ha I simply en leavored to tell bis own experience. At this season of th ? year it wa> cus tomarv for men to look around them and see how they stood;* what progress thoy bad made during tho j ear that is pas>t, and what plans to adopt for the future. The mcrchuut would do this in r< gard to his hu*ine?s. and tho christian would do it in reference ? j hi', progress in divine things. With himself the pnst year had been an event ful una?but he had not come there to speuk of himself, but should proceed to spaak of the gloriotio cause of temperance. Mr. Gough spoke about an hour, pretty much iu the style of nis former addresses. He was fluent earnest, and apparently conscious of the position in which be stood before tho audience. He alluded paiticularly to (he temptations which surround the man who has re luimed, and related some incidents of those whom he had known to fall and violate the pledge repeatedly, but who finally came oft'victorious over their own appetites and the snares which beset their path. H>j made no ap plication of these remaiks to his own case, but doubtless designed that the audience should. At the clo?e he ?aid that his strength failed him; that he felt deoply indebted to the people and the press ot Boston; they had treated him with gre:it kindness, for which h? feit truly grateful. He said he should speak again on New Year's day evening, which, perhaps, might be the l*st time he should ever address a Boston audi ence. He knew that many people wore prejudiced against him. but ho did not blame them for that. He hod bean assailed without mercy, nut be was able to vindi cate his character, and it should bo done. The. o wa* both approbation and disapprobation mani fested when the lust tenteu-e was uttered; but it wr.s evident that a large portiou of the audience sympathised with the spuaker Mr. Dough has not altered much in appearance; I thmk he if more fleshy than when I last saw him, but bis laco is as pale as death. After enjoying two days of very good sleighing, we are again in tho midst of a thaw. When it will freeze again would require an Espy to determine. Anew paper is to bo published hero, the object of which is to demolith tWe Catholic religion. Several , Protestant clergymen are announced as contributors to ! its columns. The beRt way for people to build up their | jvvn met. is to show by their conduct that the, doctrines they profess exert a salutary inflence on their lives, and lead te works of benevolence and piety. I he tlev. TUr.o.inra Parker preaches at the Melodeon every Sunday, I ain informed, u,,rf draws full houses li is also (aid that ho is to loca'e himself here permanently; if so, y. ur s moment that he was going tj New York cunnot be coriect. Mr. Burke ptaj ed at a concert of tho Philharmonic So ciety on Sii'.niday evening, n*d i* to givo hi? first conceit on I'm fday evening. His juvenile efforts on the stage aro well remembered here, and hence he will utand a j cliHiice to do better than some who have preceded hiin j the present season. The dinner for tt?e Plymouth celebration was co<>ke ! in this city by Messrs. Ilolman & Ci?rk, ot the U. S Hotel, and carried to the tubles smoking hot,in a little over an hour, on the railroad. Not much local news just now. We must have some thing to begin the new year with. Those " piping limes ol peace" will never answer.

Kinney's Ranche," though a town ol comiderabl-.* in; .oi', selling annually about a million's ww'.h of njoodi to the Mexican smugglers, whs as quiet and .eaceuble under tho vigorous military hw iy ol its mar tial proprietor as a villago in N?w Kngland. How chang ed tin: aspect now ! Kveiy now antral of tioo.iK, jn>ui irjr in trom hII i arts of the Union, was promptly followed by hii urnval ot tome portion of that vast Uur'o of liquor ? tiling harpies, which brings up the roar ol an aimy, and is ever rendy to prey upon tho poor sol tier. Mole than thirty grogshops, constructed of frail materials, hare been erected within the last lew months, on the outskirts of "tho Ranche." AH tho outluws, thieve* and murderers from tho United States, seem to huvo found homos in these temporary structures. Their sr. vage yells and horrid oaths, and imprecations, can be hi aril at nil hours of tho night. Their bacrh million re vols usually terminate ir. a bloody affray, in which these ruffians show their intimate acquaintance with Bowie knives and revolvers. To tha philanthropist no fight can hp more truly distressing than thutot the bloated Hnd sin marked visages of these ineu, ns they listlessly lounge by day through I he purlieus of this modern Paudemoni urn, concocting their hellish plans for the night. But not content with confining their murderous attacks to their own worthy fraternity, they havo recently laid thoir luthless hands on the soldier;. About ten days since, a soldier oi the 4th Artillery was shot dead by one ol the?o outlaws. The murderer escaped, simply because no effi cient measures were taken for bis apprehension. Two days alter, a soldier of the 2nd Artillery, was found dead in a pond about a quarter of a mile from ttia encamp ment, with the indisputable mark of violence on his ho ly. No means whatever havo been used to discover the fiend who perpetrated this deed. Hevend soldiers, known to have money in their possession, havo boon enticed iu <o the grog-shops, then drugged with some infernal po tion and robbed of their dearly bought saviugs, whilst in i state of stupor. A soldier left the encampment a few lay* since with a bundled dollars in his pocket, his hard earnings for two years, and was missing for several ? Inys. lie was at length found in the hanparal," al most entirely denude.I, minus his hundred dollars, and 'till stupid from the effects of the drug which had been given him. But. you will a?k, is there no law to stop^tbese out rages I The country on this side of the Nueces being in Ii?pute, contains no civil officers except the sell styled collectors, who recently attempted to assess the Army supplies. Before the ariival ot the United States troop* Col. Kinney, tho undisputed " lord of all he surveyed," governed by the strictest martial law, and brought to con sign punishment the wretch who dared to infringe the least of his regulations The whole encampment has long been surprized at the hesitation of the commanding General to proclaim martial law, and ar* now deeply chngrined and mor.ified that he has taken no steps to avenge his murdered soldiers But all who know.the iron j will, indomitable courage and generous nature of Gen. Taj lor, believe that it is not from want of firmness, or lock pf feeling towards his command, that he has acted : so strangely, hut because he is fettered by that depart [ ment which sent an aimy upon what was supposed a bloody campaign, without the armament and munitions of war "The Northers" havo come with a vengence, and as sudden and unexpected as unwelcome. He who lies down ? gasping tor breath in the sultry night air, will, in all pro- 1 onhiliiv, be holf frozen before dawn. Thethermometerhas | ?everal times fallen 30 degree* in n few hoars.

A week ?ince tner? were two feet ot water in iho tentn of the whole left wing of the 8d infantry.

One-third of them ?jre iii w on the nek list, and not one-filth of tho whole encampment have escnped sicknes., aLoge'her. Vet, newspapers lay that " the Army ol occupation continues to enjoy tcmaikably fine heal ti There la scarcely a i single olllror or soldier looking well. All are now be ginning to murmur at the unnocossary hardships they are required to endure ; to remain mo?th liter month in wiotched ten's on the bleok shores of a boisterous buy, without camp fires, without protection trom the chilling iaiiis and pit icing winds ; surely this is enough, moio than enough, to trj the fortitude and discipline ot the best tionps in the world. Were they on au BCtive cam paign, with the prospect of meeting thu loe. all would ie gay and cheerful j but it is hard, vi ry hard, to sit day ilier day shivenng ii wet tents, aid listening to the | plaintive wail of the muffled drum, a^ some beloved Ci tn 1 m.le j * earned to his liu-t resting place. Only wood enough lor cooking purposes is provided, none what , uvtr lor camp file... Owing to the negligence in not providing good tents, many valuable lives will be loit " Navigation of Pkarl Kivek ?Among the vari- j ou.t irnpoit iiit iii.ittern which will occupy the tune nnd attention of our next Legislatme, we hope that tne navigation ol tho Pearl river will not he o- ei looked I his is a subject in which a grout portion of thu state of Mississippi is deeply interested , and no person w ho is acquainted with the condition ol that river, will at ail loubt the practicability of making it navigable, at least lor lint boats and keels, anil perhaps small steamboats, a good portion of the year, for a hundred miles abovo lickson.

Mr. Ubaiiam objected, on the ground that the declara tion was sworn to, wliereus the law requited it to be a voluntary confession made in extremii, without hope or feur. He contended that the paper having been sworn to for one purpose, it could not now be read for another. This Coi'ht allowed it to be real as a dying declara tion, under the exception of prisoner's counsel. Mr. Phillips read the dying declaration of S:\rah Deck er, which was by way of question and answer, a.11 Mated that she carae from Orange county; wai nineteen years ol age; had taken oil of tansy brought to her by her cousin; he gave her a phial full of it, and desired her to take half of i!; took the quantity he dosired; does not know of any other cause tor her present sickness than tiie oil of tansy; was iu peifect health before she took it. A great many of the questions and answers were sup ! pressed as illegal.

The case lor the prosecution here closed. Judge Bo jth opened the defence? He eat 1 the priso i ner's counsel labored unler great embarrassments lor several reasons The learned Judge then gave a long account ol how he himself happened to he employed on tho case. He spoke at some length ol the respectability ol the prisouer's lrienda, and (as lie was pleas d to say,) of the groundless statements made by the public press in regard to this prosecution. They would, he said, divide the defence into two branches ; they would tirst 1 show that Sarah Decker was a giil of bad character, an I ; unworthy of credit on har oath ; they would then show ; that she told her cousin that if ever she happened to be in the same situation of her eldest sister, she would de i stroy hen-ell bclore her slmmo should be made public ; I they would th?n show the respectability of the prisoner his Iriends, and that if there was any seduction in j tie case, his client was the seduced, aud not the sr < ducer. Jonv Qikslt, examined by Mr Smith?Reside* in { Orange county; has resided there for fifty years; is a larmer; knew Sarah Becker. Qi'r.s.? Wh >t w as her character f Mr. Phillips objected, on the ground that the evi dence was not admissible under the general rule appli 1 cable to the chnracter of persons making dying declare " | tioris; he apprehended, if it appeared at the time tne da ' | duration was rn .de, that the person making it was im pressed with a full conscionsness of her immediate di? i liolution, and with a full wnse of religion, her previous 1 j ^onerol character ought not to be impugned. He con tended that the memory of the unfortunate girl ought | not to bo permitted to be blackened by testimony which ?night, for aught ho knew, be manufactured. Although ie didliot mean to impute sucn guilt to any party cod i nected wita the''efrjtino of this case, he whs quite sure I his learned friends would not land themselves to such a | proceeding. * Mr. Smith replied. He was aware that tho rule foa i nieriy was that ge.iernl chaiacler could not be enquired into; but the Supreme Court had altered the rule ; and now it is competent for a party to impoach the general character of a per.,on making a dying declaration. Tho (-oust said that the testimony ol Sirah Decker was to be measured by the same standard n? if she gare it on the stand, and they could not Ree why it shoutJ be exempt from the scrutiny that the testimony of all other ; witnesses would be subjected to. 1 Jons Greenly, continued - Knew Sarah Decker since 1 she was a child; since she was old enough to go into i company, her character was considered light; young | vomen of good character did nt>t wish to associate with her; she was not considered a virtuous girl; she had the reputation of not being virtuous for about three years. t>a*s-exam:nrd by Phillips? Saw hor last about three months ago, at her father's, her parents were poor peo ple, aud she sometimes lived at home aud sometimes worked out; her lather was not able to help her, and she ?lothcd herself by her wages; her uncle told witness that she was not well behaved; does not know the priso ner; witness's knowledge is derived from village report j ?knows nothing, of his own knowledge, about her; the reputation of her father's house was that he allowed loose company to come there, and married and single men to visit his daughters.
