"One much. Fourier Meeting at the Minerva About fifty persons assembled in the Minerva Rooms on Thursday evening, to listen to long winded speeches about "humanity," "antago nisms," " unity," ** harmony," he. kc. The meeting was opened by llokACr. Oskclt, who Mid: It hai been thought ex pedient by the friend* or social unity to see if there was any interest remaining in the city in the progress of hu manity towards perfection. We see a great and glorious rslorm which shall elerst* man in the social scale; and such a reform is practicable. It is not the work of a day, but of tiae. All rsforsa is a work of time, which de mends a spirit of self-sacriAce. I should not be discou raged if there come seasons of doubt?when the friends of social harmony had to surmount grffcter obstacles than any jot thrown in their way. Mr. < freely then ' proceeded te speak of the difficulties which the associa tions at present in existence hare to contend with. He said thers was bat oae association which commenced with peying for its lands?and that has met with no ex ternal difflculty Qcoaus Hiruer, of Btook Farm, Mass., now took the stand and said : The associations at present in existence are not to be taken as models. They have not yet started I on the grand idea?th?)r look forward to something at an infinite distance? they will arrive at it by and bye, when it will be apparent that they mean something. It is to j the contemplation of the principle!, rather than the pre sent associations, that I wish to call your attention. The associative movement i* founded on the great fact that justice is not done to man. This idea was not originated I by any crack-brained enthusiast, or rabid Jacobin, but has become evident to every candid observer. We are 1 plants growing in an arid soil, and we are therefore stint ed. Wnile every thing else has been Improving, the social order has not advanced during the last three or 1 four hundred years. Indeed, go back to the age of chi valry, and I think it probable that it will be found to I have bean better than the present We have not gained much by the change from the plumed helmet to the ledger and the counting house. The social order has not made any improvement in comparison with the material and scientific. But the great truth that man does not live by bread alone?by getting dollars, and devoting himself to the workshop of mammon?ii becoming evident; it is not the destiny of man. This state of society is found want ing, and must pass away. There is a higher problem to work out th'.m what we shall eat and what we shall drink and wherewithal we shall be clothed. (Applause.) This age worships mammon more than any thing olse. Voick m Caowo.?" They don't do anything else." Mr. Ktrw:v?What is the effect of this system of so ciety 1 In the first place it produces an unequal division of labor, and thus reverses the order of nature. We know that man was born to labor, clothed as he i? with hardy muscles and sinew*. We know that overy man with fivt finger* and a thumb? A Voite i* the Cbowd.?Is that a discover}-of Fou rier??five fingers and a thumb I (Laughter.) Mr. Riplct?We know that he is capablo of perform ing manual labor enough, and more than to keep soul aud body together. It was the calculation of Dr. Kranklin, that two hoursa day would be sufficient to give all the necessaries and luxuries of life. Now, would not this be a better order of society f Is it not better that those ground down till the soul within them is a dray horse, be relieved T Would it not be better for those who perform all the l*ber, and those who perform none at all 1 Then there would be a chance for mental improvement. Then man would be hardy and strong in body and mind ; not as now. a miserable, puny race?not as now, one portion ground down by labor, and the other portion raised by luxury to a species of nondescripts for which no name has been found. Then, every faculty of man's nature would be satisfied; for all would be placed In harmonious relations with one another. We ask for a state of society where all will be surrounded with all that their nature wants. Man needs magnificence?luxury?and if all were to do their portion of labor, all would be comforta ble. Men are now thrown together in wrong relations. They do not live in harmony, hut in a state of antagonism. The immense competition prevents the mind from expan ding. Now we wish by this associative movement, to et rid of these etils. Wo know of no other way than riuging about a state of society in accordance with principles of co operation and friendship This is tho great and awful secret of Kourierism?the immorality talked about. We wish to see men co-operating toge ther, rather than in this condition of diabolical antagon ism, in which we are obliged to knock every man doyvn, for fear he will knock down us. Mr. Ripley proceeded some time in tills strain ; and fho meeting adjourned. Anniversary Meeting of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions. The anniversarymeeting of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, wn*hcld on Friday, at the Tabernacle. In the absence of the President, Hon. Theodore Freelinghuysen, Dr. Dewitt was called to the chair. ?&lter a prayer by Dr. Edwards, the following statement of tne operations of the Society, for the past year, was read by one of the secretaries:? Weitern jffrica?'The pros]Mjcts have been overcast and operations impeded by French men of war. Hopes arc entertained that the mission will henceforth proceed without interruption. Southern Jlfrica?Among the Zulus farther aid is call ed for. Greece?Mr. King has resumed his preaching and the publication of his books. Armenia?The persecutions by the Patriarch have sot abated: but the converts bear their trials in the true spi rit of Christianity. The missionaries therefore hope that good will spring from the persecutions, as it has shown in striking contrast the spirit of the oppressor and op pressed. Syria?The missionaries have resumed their labors, since the close of the civil war, and the indications are favorable. At Asbeya the movement in favor of refor mation, violently suppressed about a year ago, has re commenced. Among the Nestoriana opposition to the mission has ceased. -Twenty-four members have Wen add ed, and numerous enquirers are making application for instruction and. counsel. Out stations are being estab lished at varioot points. The English language is now taught to some Budhist priests. Borneo?It Is not unlikely the missionaries srill leave this station for a more promising one. Sandwich hlandt?Many churches are experiencing revivals?the people improving in social and domestic life. Their contributions for the education of their chil dren and support of home missions are truly liberal. Romanism is waning and passing away before the light of a pure gospel. Tho receipts for the nine months past have been $304, 000, exceeding the receipts last year for the same period by $19,000. Taking the year from April 3d, 1H40, to April 30, 1846, the receipts have been $373,000. Twenty additional missionaries have been sent out After the reading of this statement, Rev. Da. Wvcxorr, of Albany, came forward and said:?1 count my self favored of heaven in being present here to-day. It is not, sir, a personal vanity which prompts me to say this, for this is to me the anniversary of death. I was engaged, just a year ago, to occupy this place, when Ood visited our do mestic circle and took away one whom we dearly loved. But Providence has smiled on us, and time has dried the tear and brought the thought that another angel has been added to the choir above. Sir, 1 shall not attempt to speak of the statement which has just been made by the secretary of the society, because it will soon take a thousand wings snd fly to the uttermost ends of the earth. Besjdes, we shall soon hear from brethren who hare been among the heathen, and will tell what (Jod is doing for them. I shall only present to you some generalities upon this subject, and draw your attention to the follow ing resolution:? Resolved, That under the auspice* of a benign Provi dence, nothing is wanting to ensure the ultimate triumph of the missionary cause, but the just, consistent, con fiding, indomitable efforts of tho Christian world.''' In attempting to speak to this resoiution, I cannot for get the character of the field to which the labor of this society belongs j and though the present aspect is for bidding, the glory of the future prosperity will more than compensate. What, then, sir, is this field 1 Like and with what shall I compare it 7 It is not an Klysian field which pours its fragrance upon all within it. But, sir, it is more like the valley of the shadow of death. 1 wish I could take this audieuce and walk with them around that valley. But, sir, I can only show them in thought the multitudes who are cast in there. It steams with ? hot and sulphurous smoke. It is filled with deadly vapors, and sin and uncleanliness are there. I ask the Father of Light, can these bones live again 7 The answer 1a, by the blessing of God, they will. Ood bids you live? .Slumbering dust, arise ! And what a change ! Bone to its bone returns, and the valley, cleared of its nitrous.atmos phere, blooms up like a valley of lieauty and'glory. Forbidding as I said this prospect might be, under the blessing oi Ood, it shall change, and the dead shall live again. Latevery Christian ask, what ought I to do ? what ought I to give to such a work f Let not hundreds and thousands be wasted in the vanities of this life, while only the dollars and cents go to this great work. Sir. we must be indomitable, confiding, and persevering, and, in God's own time, victory and glory shall orown our efforts. After singing, led by Mr. Haiti<m;>, Mr. Wii.i.mms of the Mission to China, offered the following resolution: Resolved, That as different fields of missionary effort should receive attention in proportion to their impor tance, so the openings among the Chinese invite us to increased effort for the evangelization of the most an cient, numerous, and civilized of all heathen nations. He detailed the condition of the Chinese people?their ancient .history? literature and acquaintance with the arts. China possesssd no less than three hundred and six ty-two millions of inhabitants. The F.mperor lived in Pekin. The social condition of the people showed that they had a reverence for him. That they were an evi dence of that paternal veneration, which conferred a blessing upon all. They possessed s high species of civili zation, tnd the emperor ruled his own people as a pa rent, possessing all the despotic power of the highest monarch. There is no raiudle aristocracy?no money power. Heaven is said to lie his father, and Ofe earth his mother. All public officers spring from the masses of the people. All this sprung from the writings of Con fucius. This government had existed since the thir teeenth century, in the same manner *as it now exists. The invention of gunpowder?the compass?but as to printing, he was not so sure. Printing was more per lect wiih them, and cheaper than with us. They could print more with their blocks, and cheaper too, than we could with our metal types?so that in point or civiliza tion, they stand higher|than any other barbarous nation. They were a people, however, morally degraded in point of religion. Several Chinese idols were here ex hibited. lie contended they were not their gods, but their idols. Although they worship idols, they do not place much faith in them. Their real religion is the worship of their deceased ancestors, who always hover near them. In every house, the younger member of the family otters up prayer to their departed ancestors. They hold anniversaries, to worship annually at the graves.of the families, and it is often diflcuit to get there, as there are neither rail roads or locomotives there. They also have annual feasts. The Kmperef knows no other class of Christians than the Roman Catholic. The idols exhibited were those used by the Buddas of China. They pray to everything?and prayed even to a picture ol Napoleon Bonaparte, whom utay saw there exhibited?and if there happens to be a bad season, they attribute it to something bad on the part of their rulers?for instance, a shower of rain not naving fallen, jhey said it was because something had waa.doue on the part of their rulers. Their diet oonsiats of the most rare materials ; they are known to eat bird's-nests. rats, cats and dogs, to their own infinite enjoyment There is one thing which may be said, very much in their favor, notwithstanding their wonderful peculiarities of character : they have never been known to saactify vice ; they know that their vi Clous propensities will nevir take them to heaven. They have never burnt or sacrificed their children, as in India, lafhaticide is not kuowaaatong them ; nor arc instance* of abaadonment known assong them, as here in New York, wiseic you caa hardly welcome the dawn of ano tber day but that frequeut accounts of such practices will meet youreje- They hare heard of the existence , of such things, yet disclaim any participation in them j These are only a few feature* of this great people. To JP**k of the proipecti of thia people?I want among them -? f' where I found but two of our iniiiionarie*. (Dr?. Thompson and Bridgman.) one of whom ha* rone to hii reit. It wai then aakeJ why we had not com* before among them, and prevented them from lacrificing and putting to death their childrenl Our answer <wai that it had been ihut up from our ministration* ; but now | through the providence of Ood, China ha* been made open to u? ; and it i* a happy con*olation that we are i>er mitted to preient the go*i>el of |>euce among them, and t that they embrace its precept* and are guided by it* I maxim*. The Her. Mr. Dott, of the Miuion* of China, *eoonded thi* reiolation, which waa adopted nra. con. He laid that it wa* with much pleature that he could bear teiti monv to the lentimenti, feeling* and etperience of the gentleman la?t up. He had been among tni* people, and had formed an intimate acquaintance With their habit* and custom*, and the happy re*ult* which had attended our great mimionary enterprise. What more (hall wo do for thi* va*t country I The Held U a large one, and i* open to moral and religious culture. I wi*h to say a word or two upon infanticide. During my ?omewhat long *ojourn among them, I wa* brought up in the very hot-bed of infanticide, (a north-eait province of Canton province,) where thirty-three per cent af the riling popu lation are sacrificed by their fathera and mother* ? Through the i*land of Borneo, and in many of it* pro vince*, they do not aeem to know why it exi*t? ; yet, notwithitanding, It (till prevail*. There i* a representa tive of China in this audience, [which proved to be a little girl of about six year* of age, and who, at thi* an nouncement, wa* the cynosure of all eyes,] who waa plucked from the hands of Chinese barbarity, and who, at the age of three weeks, was to have been sacrificed in accordance with accustomed usago ; but, through the interposition of a kind lady, *ho wa* purchased and re deemed from her declared doom, for the sum of twenty dollars, and is now in the free land of America. She is to j>e educated among us, and if Uod apare* her lifo, she will be conveyed back to her country to tell her people ol the great benefits of Christian civilization. In conclu sion, I rejoice in being permitted to Mcond this resolu tion. The Rev. A. Glkisom, formerly of the Choctaw Na tion, was presented to the audience. He said, but yester day he had heard something of a house not built of wood but of bricks, stones and iron bars, and of aticks being burned, and from which there was a great fin# enkindled. He too had brought " sticks" with him from the Choctaw nation?he had brought with him tracts written in the Choctaw language ; and better than that, evidences of the results of Christian civilization. When I went among them, in 1838, no sun had ihone upon thair undetatand ings i they were full of doubt, and not easily to b? ap proached. Whenever we attempted to reason with thein upon the subject of civilization or Christianity, they would suy "it was all white men'* talk " The day .howgrer came when the influence of Ood'a word waa begun to f>e felt among them, and alter tarrying with them bn about threo year*, I returned home again, which wa*in 1831.? Laat fall, when I went among them, 1 waa much gratified to see the marked improvement in their condition, as compared with the time I fir?t knew them. Now they hare churches among them, tchools, and all other evi dence* of Chriitian civilisation. They havo witlutood the i>eraecutiona and tribulationa which at one time was so common atnong them. I waa sarpriaed^too, at thoir outward improvement* ; their personal appearanco had also materially changed; they formerly hardly wore a particle of clothing, now they are well and comfortably dressed. [The reverend clergyman here presented some ?pecimen* of their handiwork.] Now they can rai*e their own cotton, and the women can ipin their own yarn, from which they manufacture their own fabric*.? 1 he clock run* too fa*t for me, for 1 could talk hour* up on their outward appearance and *elf government? 1 hey havo gow in a great degree abandoned their former pursuit* of hunting for game, and are engaged very gene rally in agricultural employment. I ahould like to ?how what has beea done in behalf of education among them. They spell quite readily, read lessona, and express much interest in all that concerns them for their temporal as well a* spiritual advancement. The knowledge of the goipel firat reached them through the influence* of muiic. At firat we were in the habit of wri ting off a few word* upon alip* of paper, which we would *ing to them in a familiar air, and thoy being much devoted to muiic, were alway* ready to join in theso exercises. " [One of the Rev. gentlemen pre*ent usked Mr. tileason if ho would not sing one of their songs, as written in the Choctaw language 1 He said he would directly, with the aid of his brother missionary, the Rev. Mr. bouglass.] He then proceeded with a number of interesting anecdote* con nected with hi* experience of hi* miision among this peo .J ,P?ke of ,hoir demotion to Christianity. When, said he, an Indian let's go of the world, he let'* go with both hands and seize* hold of the altar; they know no thing of mesmerism, magnetism, phrenology, or any of the absfruse sciences; they embark in this subject with a determined zeal and will not cease in their devotion* or be drifen from their poiition; they will go from itation to station, in itorm a* well a* cunihine, to hear the preach ing of the goapoL Indian*, too, have feeling* when they come to die , they make their will*?diipoie of their pre ient* and valuahlei, and become perfectly resigned to thalrapproacfcing destiny. They like to die near by their missionaries. I knew an oM Indian whose name wa* hi mon Peter, [not Simon Peter of Ualilee, but Bimon Peter of the Choctaw nation,] who, a* he wa* about to die *tart ed with a heart full of hope that he might reach the home of a miitionary before the final period of hi* diuolution; or at least, to get a* near to him aa he could, before he died; he started for a diatant station, but, from the feeble ne*s of his condition, died on the way, yet happy that he had used his best exertions to gain his laat and farewell bleating: he died ainging a *ong of joy, with his aail* all *et for glory in the world to come. The following two verse* were then sung, a* written in the Choctaw language,to the great interest and delight of an attentive audience Hvtvk hvsh hikia moma Himak a fena ka, Chisvs pulla Bhilombiih osh Hvchi chukvih oka ; Chi*vi* pulla la chukvih a Ima li pullashki Momvt hvsh achi pullaahke Chiirs dulla hoke. Rev. Mr. FiSHr.a ottered the following resolution : That the missions of the A. B. C. V. M. in Turkey have at thia time a peculiar claim upon the sympathies and nrayera of our American Zion.'r He aaid, I cannot speak of what my eyes Lave seen, but 1 can speak of what my ear* have heard. Among all the miasiona sus tained by this Board, I know of none of more intrinsic interest than those they have establiahed on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean. It is a land where every mound is a sepulchre, beneath which repose the bones of heroes, statesmen and apostles. But lately a blaating war has been made upon the missionaries, and by the church, calling iUelf Christian there. Mr. Kisher then went on to speak of the difficulties which they had mrt with, and the obstacles thrown in the way of the raix sionaries, by the Oreek and Armenian churches. Perse cution, (he said) has arisen, a persecution which sepa rates lather and son ; but what of this 1 Persecution is no new thing in the church. But that the opposition should come from a church professedly Christian, was rather lingular, and he hoped the government of thia land and tireat Britian, and Prussia, would take mean* to atop it. Dr. Anocaiori said he could aaiure the audience that there waa a ipiritual church growing up in Armenia which was more powerful than had been thought Dr. AnDxaaoM, of Boiton, then addre*sed tho meeting and seconded the resolutions which had been offered by Dr. 8. W Kisher. Dr. A. stated that in order to ahow more fully the claims which these countries and people had upon the sympathies and prayers of the .American people, be would relate some particulars of the persecu tions which they had suffered. Dr. A. then gave an inte resting and thrilJmg account of the persecution of Har rytown, an Armenian priest. He was persecuted because he listened to the American missionaries and embraced their doctrines; threatened again and again by his Bishop, he refused to.recant; at last be was put in jail and (which is a mark of the higheat diagraoe) he was shaved ? This was by order of the Bishop. Thus shaved and shorn, he was exposed in the public streets to the jeers and scorn of the bovs, the women and the men as he went home from the jail, out of which the Turkish officer sfet him free. Dr. A. read portions of the letter of Harrj town, in which all his sufferings and persecutions are related by himself with great energy and feelings. There were also other persecutions ot others for the , seme cause ; to these Dr A. briefly alluded. Those per secutions took place so recently as the latter end of January last Tho account was but just received, and had not yet been published The scene of the persecu tion was chiefly at Nicomedia, on the northeastern ex tremity of the 8ea of Marmora. The resolution was i then put and carried, ncm com. The doxology was then sung, and after a benediction by Dr. Magee, the meeting | adjourned. Political Movement*.

The (Governor is in favor at the Mormons leaving, according to their contract, and candidly admits that ii they do not go, and the c Hi tens ot the nine coun ties choose to force their departure, he has not the power to prevent them. M*. Enrrom:? There must be a great mistake in supposing tliat the lith article of the treayof i7?, with Spain, is now in force. I have n list of thirty-two privateers fitted out in the United States, under the South American flag*, anil manned and ollieered by Americans, without having one soli tary Spaniard on board, and which privateer*, for a series of years, entered and departed from the ports ot the United State*, alter capturing Spanish property estimated at six to eight millions ol dol lars. No authority in the United States molested said privateers nor their owners in the several ci? ties of the Ameik an Union; consequently it is evi dent that mtphartu-lo of dnu twaty with Spain is abrogated.

The play waa car ried on with a great deal of spirit throughout the day, till about sundown, when there was ?single wicket match between some of the members, for a winder up.

[From the Hancock (Nauvoo) Eagle, May 1.1 The Mormon Vote.?We understand from undoubted authority that the principal Mormons still remaining in this city, have resolved to advise and instruct all the members of that church throughout the State, on no consideration to again cast a vote in Illinois. It appears (Vom the chnrch records that there are nearly six thou sand Mormons in the Stat*, without the precincts of Hancock county. Many are known as Mormoni, but a great number make no public profession of their religion. All who may be left in the State at the forthcoming elec tion are determined to disfranchise themselves, as they believe that the exercise of political privileges has tended to stimulate the violent opposition which now rages against them. We learn that these resolutions will appear in an official form in a few days. This will make a large hole in the democratic vote, but, thank Ood, we can easily fill it up again. 8alc or the TEMrLE.?We are enabled to state that the gentleman who proposos to buy the Temple, passed up the river, a few days ago, on hia way to Oalena. He will stop here on his return, and from wnat we can hear, will have an opportunity of purchasing it at a very low price. The organization of the Mormon Church re quires the assent of the " twelve" as well as that of the congregation, before a measure of the kind can be acted on. A messenger has been despatched to the camp to arrange these preliminaries, and in a few days the trus tees will be ready to negotiate. If sold at all, it will be disposed of at what may be regarded as a great sacrifice, anil the chief inducement which the Mormons have in thus parting with it, is to raise an immediate fund for the removal of their poor. The New Camp.?Up to l'i M. yesterday, two hundred and sixty-two wagons had crossed at the upper ferry, on their way to the new camp ground. Four flatboats aro kept constantly employed, and we noticed early this morning some eight or ten wagons waiting to cross. The above accouut is given us by one of the boatmen, but we think with him, that numbers have passed over on the horse-boat at the lower ferry. Arrest or Rockwell.?O. P. Rockwell was arrested between the hours of 1*2 and I last night, by sheriff'Back enstos, assisted by five of the rifle corps, on a writ in which he is charged with the killing of Worrell. He offered no resistance, nor was any attempt made to res cue him this morning, although surroundod by hundreds, and but imperfectly guarded by four or Ave persons.? Rockwell was in heaat the time of his arrest, and, on ap plication lieing made at the house where he lodged, the owner refused to give him up. This was met by Back enstos with a throat to force the house, unless Rockwell was immediately surrendered. All objections were there upon withdrawn, and the arrest quietly made. The Troops.?We learn from a member of the rifle company that Major Warren has been clothed with dis cretionary powers by the Governor, either to disband his entire force, or to retain a portion of them in service with a view to the maintenance of the law and as a corps of ob servation. It is more than probable that the latter course will be decided ? upon, and that the Major h imself. with a part of his command, will quarter in this city on Monday oi Tueaday next We notice that the citizens of quincy have tendered the rifle company a public dinner, and that they have ac ccpted the invitation.

In the ceae of Welter Mead and Josinh Jimmeraon, indicted for a conspiracy. the conn ael for the defendant* mored for a postponement of the trial, on the ground that a paper of ronaiderable impor tance for the defence, had been on flie in the Diatrict At torney'a office and could not at present be found. Mr. Whitimu oppoaed the motion, and contended that if the caae ahould go oil for the accommodation of the de fendant*, they ahould be compelled to pey the expenses Incurred by the witnesses for the prosecution, who had been brought from Pennsylvania to teatify in thia cause.
