Esq. road a very interesting paper in relation to the volcanoes of the mcon. In all ike geological observations which have been made with regard to the moon, one important feature remained unsatisfactorily explained?namely, the vast magnitude of its craters, which were described by the non-committal term of King mountains, which geologists have not ventured to acknowledge their belief in these lunar wondera. Some of these wwre from 100 to ISO milos in diameter, and 20,000 feet in depth, and of lesser magnitude. Those are crowded in great numbers over the larger part of its surface. It wa* not, therefore, to be wondered at, that there ahould be much difficulty in reconciling their features with those of Vesuvius and Etna. The crater of Kilanea, in the Hawaiian Islands, is of a wholly difl'er eni cnaracier. aooui two-thirds of the lunar hemisphere, compriiing almost the whole of the louthem nail, it composed of these volcanic mountain*. Kir*t, the ring mountain!, which aro broad truncated cones, with immeme circular crateri. Second, conical mountains, which are like ordinary volcanoes. Third, lunar ridges. Fourth, large depressed areas, usually termed sens, but not supposed to contain water. Kifth, long, pale streaks, supposed to be fissures. Out of 1095 heights, measured by Beer and Madler, six are above 30,000 feet in altitude, and twenty-two exceed 16,760 ieet ? The broad truncated cones, with large circular craters, are its most common elevations, and are among the loftiest. The pita are of all dimensions, to 160 miles, and of various depths, to near 35,000 feet. The crater, Baily has ascertained to be 149% statute milos in diameter; Clavius 143S miles; Bchiekard 138 miles. The dopth ot Newton is 33,833 feet. The height above the surface, exterior to the crater, is said by Beer and Madler, to be often one-half or one-third less than the height above tho bottom of the crater. The pits are generally circular, and sometimes almost artificially regular. There are others, also, which con'ist of two or more cratered pits; the enclosing walla in many are broken into a series of ridges; sometimes with large open ings. The bottoms of the pita, not unlrequently, contain small cones or ridges, like elevations. The depressions, called seas, among which are the "mare lerenitatii," and " mare Cririum," notwithstanding their size, are identical in character with the great pit cratort?their extent and depth being their only characteristics. This fact has been clearly proved by Rosit, and their entire features sustain it They, too, contain cones and circular areas. The light streaks, alluded to, form radiating lines around some large cones, and especially about those known as Knler Kepler, Copernicus and Aristarchus. They are from one to five hundred miles in length, and cross ridges and depressions without interruption, as if they were bands of light coming up through open fissures; and they coalesce about the summit of Kepler; so that the whole surface appears nebulous with light. Sir W. llerschell first published an account of actual volcanic action in the mooa. Mr. Dana here compared the features with those of Kilanea, and showed a correspondence in every particular; and accounted for their size and features on the gronnd on which the Hawaniian illustrates, that the action was that of boiling over the large areas, and not the ejection of ciuJars, like the summit ejections of Vesuvius Dr. D. here went on to illufitrato iom? point* in the itructureof our earth, anJ concluded a very interesting address. Professor Silmma* here rose, and asked Mr. T)nna, a* to his opinion, whether or not there was any water in the moon 1 Mr. Dana repIiecLthaf he understood the general belief wui iliat there MP not. There was none that astronomers could detecf Mr. Jauci Hall ajfct offered some remarks on the Fossil Brachiopodaano%rthocerata of the United States, and presented various specimons in illustration of his views, in relation to fossils, shells, lie., as found inclosed in rocks, itc. Kos.ils in the State of New York were found to ba not ouly four, but ten feet in length, nnd a f;reat number of shells were found in particular. Mr. H. ntimated his intention to resume the subject in the course of the week, and to go more fully into details. Professor SHiPAan introduced bis report on meteoric stones and irons, by observing that he had aimed at little beyond what might be considered a monograph of such as had been observed within the Unittid States ; and that although the views he was about to present might have somewhat the appearance of a general report on meteor masses, yet this had not been intended, und was no farther the case than was found necessary to au intelligent account ot our own specimens. He fur her obeer ved. that he did not wish his frequent references to terrestrial minerals and rocks to bo interpreted as having any hearing upon the point of a common origin, of meteoric and terrestrial productions, since the comparisons would be instituted chiefly with a view of promoting our knowledge of the unknown, by bringing it .into con nam wuu wn?i una I'ecn Bsrertsiinea, in diiection where the analogies were certainly vary striking ? Ai a general theory on the origin of meteor mauei, he accepted that which find* at present most favwr with aitronomeri, viz : that they are small cometary bodiei. moving with the velocity of the planet* in paths about the tun, in harmony with the lawa of univerial gravitation, and that when they encounter the earth in their oourae, and become luminous on the verge of iti atmosphere, they frequently let fill fragments of greater or less aize, (from a few pounds up to torn,) which are heated in a greater or less degree, and covered on their surfaces with a black and shining crust; the great proportion of inch bodies being believed to pass in our vicinity without any precipitation of matter, and only suffering a slight deflection in the eccentricity of their orbits, ny the attraction of the earth. The report;submitted, (which it was observed was only an outline of a mere preliminary to a fuller work, which, with tho approbation of the association, he hoped to offer on a future occasion.) consisted of a series of tabular view*. The first of these wa* devoted to tho systematic c Unification of the various mineral species, he had been able to detect in meteor masses generally. These he found amounted to thirty-six in number, which equals one-tenth the entire number of mineral tpecies belonging to our earth. The thirty-six meteoric specias (although one half of them are peculiar to meteors,) arrange themselves very naturally under the classes and order* recognised in the natural history system of minealogy. The profesior suggested tho propriety, however, of creating a new science for the reception ot these species, as it did cot comport with our deposition of mineralogy to include these extra terrestrial production* among it* content*. The name he offered for the new *ci?nce wa* Aitrolithology. The meteoric species were then tabulated in the order of their prevalence in the aggregate of meteoric matter, which ha* thus far come under our observation; and a reason suggested why the metallic masses so greatly preponderate over the *ton?y in meteor*, while the reverse i* true among?tarre*tria'l mineral*. If we compare the metallic maiie* with the itoney, which have fallen during the laat hundred year*, the earthy are to the metallic a* twenty to one; but if we compare all the iron masse* known, to all the stoney masses, a reverse ratio will be the result; i.e., the metallic to the earthy will l>e a* twenty to one. But it 1* reasonable to (oppose that Ill ? > < |>.V l>ortion an during the last hundred yean, end the reason why we have not been able to dctect them in common with the iron masses it, that the former are 10 perishable in their nature aa not to allow of their recognition above filty year* after their fall; whereas the latter are nearly imperishable, and, in point of fact, while we know of of above foity instances of meteoric iron masses whose period of fall may date back in some instances thousands of years, we have not a single cane of meteoric stones, save those which were collected at the time of the meteoric explosion in which they originated. A proper allowance then, being made on the aliove scorc, we find that the proportion of metallic matter to the stonry in meteors, corresponds in some partial manner with the ratio found in terrestrial minerals; only it appears to be true, that no native iron or steel, or any of the iron alloys ? prevalent in meteors, are known among terrestrial minerals. Kven the apparently well ascertained instances of Canaan, (Conn.) native iron, the Professor remarked, would probablr be shown, from facts in his possession, to be an artificial product. n. ?rm <? un?es * < men exhibited in illustration of the chemical constitution of meleorie masses, from which it appeared that they ara composed of one third of the chemical elements found entering into the composition ef our earth, and that the elements of meteers are found among the inost abundant half of terrestrial elements. The geological relations of the subject were then systematically presented undor the new scientific term of Astropetralogy: 1st. Descriptive Astroptraiogy (or a classification of the rocks formed by meteor masses) and 'idly, Theoretical Astropetralogy (including explanations of the origin of meteor manes) and the changes lliey may have suffered from chemical and mechnnical influences while within the meteor, and doring their passage through our atmosnbere. Under the head of Theoretical Astropetralugy, the Professor inquired whs- j tlier the stones an<l ' iron masses rppear to have | acquired their glazed coating before or subse- 1 quern te their leaving the bosom of the meteor T? j As tliis glszing is so uniform over every part of the mass, and must have acquired so intense a heat for iU production, it seems most probable that it took place within the highly in flamed atmosphere of the meteor itself, where kome of tha metallic masses (which have come down to us) app*t>r to have undergone complete j fusion, assuming a drop like shspe, with a perfectly mooth surface, and the obvious appendage of a pedlcal, ?r on* ?nd, aa if they had moaaenturily depended by it from tha main maaa ; and some of thaso masses ha va acquired a partially flattened aspect, as if thay had bean acted upon in a emi-plaiatic state by tha resistance of the air, or possibly bjr their concaaaion against tha VV TO ;W YORK, FRIDAY MOB surface of the (round on reaching our earth To the inquiry whether the metallic and stoney muui co-exist in the name moteort, the Professor remarked that we have no example* iu which both kind* originated in ono aud the tame explosion, from whence it might ?eem reasonable ta infer that there exist two clasaes of meteors, the one metallic and th?other aton" But it may he true that the iron masse* for# the mora centi *1 portions of all meteors,and these are not precipitated until from frequent passages acrou our atmo*phere, the meteor has by sueI cessive expnliations, paried with its exteiior coatings or wrapper* of earthy matter. He here called the attention ot the meeting to drawings, illua rative of a aiaiilarity in shape, between the most of tke meteoric iron-mauas. and Itimpi of native gold and copper, found in the rocka and oil* of our earth. Finally, he concluded by presenting a systematically arranged catalogue of the American meteor mtiiei, which uumbered in all twenty-two meteoric iron*, and eleven mataorio atones. The whole number of localities at present known (i. e. which are il j luktrated by specimens) is about 1J0. Professor Sillimam asked Mr. Hhepard il ne haj ever met with malleable iron |n meteoric masses It waa a* ertamed that in large stonev masses malleable iron was wrapped up, and he abaold wish to have this matter settled. He conceived that as regarded meteoric masses. two negatives were tally established . they were not of terrestisl origin nor of atmospheric origin?and the question was where did tbajr come from ' A .vliMsca?Two negatives make an affirmative, and therefore they must come from some place. Dr. M. W. Dickcbsom, of Natchez, explained he had aoea sotural specimens of metears. Alter a few deiuliory reaiadu on the subject of meteors, it was agroed, in compliuape with Dr. tjilliman's motion, to appoint a committee to examine some meteoric spaoimuns found in this country. It was also, on motion from thaehair, agreed that Professor bhepard oontinue the subjaet of meteors. There is much interesting business to be transacted during the session, and re|>ort* wilt he presented by various members, and lectures bv eminent profeisois will also be delivered. Professor P. A..Browne, of Philadelphia, will deliver a lecture io. the coarse of the week, and the programme announces th? following order of business, with the subjects upon wjdeh the various committees are to report In accordance with a resolution bf Prof. J.

Additional Particulars op twk Murder and Riot in Pittsburgh.?It appears that the firemen in Pittaburff ncimjitimna /wrun* tha ttahhoth as ? the wont ffroraen do, in fights and disturbances. Last Sunday, however, they got up one of a teriific characte, and murder wan the consequence. Two persons were tabbed, one of whom died In thort, a* the Baltimore Sun complimentary retnaiki :?" Although it waa the fir>t attempt of the Pittsburg fireman at a riot, they seem to have acquitted theniselvei in the genuine Philadelphia tyle !" The fire occurred about 3 P. M., in a stable back of and belonging to the tavern ol Mr. A. Morton, on Liberty treet, just below Marbury. A back building to the tavern waa a good deal injured by fire and water, as were two other small brick btiiluings. At thin fire there *11 ome quarrelling among the firemen, and a man, laid to belong to AlleghanyC ity, of the name of Craig, was (truck with a brickbat above the eye and leverely cut, but not dangerously. The Niagara fire company belongi to the 6th Ward, and took the lingular route of Front street, up to Market end along Mat ket to Liberty. The AUeghany hose compaey proceeded~up Liberty. About the corner of Fifth and Market atreeta they came in contact. How the fight between the two companies commenced we cannot positively say, but it commenced at the intersection of Market and Fifth streets. At it they went, pell-mell?spanners, horns, clubs and stones were used as the crowd rushed toward Wood treet. One nan had all hi* front teeth knocked looae ; another had piece cut out of hia upper lip by a blow from a horn; another wai badly cut above the eye with a panner ; heeds were cut and eyes blackened, See , in profusion. Individuals wero repeatedly knocked down. | The wont of it occurred juit opposite the Iron City Hotel, kept by Mr. Matthew Patrick. Ilereayouug man, named Edward Lawaoa, in the general fight was mortally stabbed in the left temple with a small Bowie knife, to the depth of two inches?was cut on the chin and also on the back. The wound in the temple, however, was the fatal one. There is a dispute as to the ]ierson who stabbed him. It was one or the other of the two brothers, James Paul Braddock, and Thomas. It is generally supposed to hare been fee first. I.awson immediately fell and waa carried to a hydrant for water. Here he bled and looked horrible, apparently dying, and waa immediately after carried into Mr. Patrick'a hotel, where he lay speechleas until ten minutea to 7 o'clock, when he expired. The widowed mother was sent for.only to see her son die, to her inJeacribablo grief. The mayor was aitting at this time in hia store on the corner of Wood street and Virgin alley, and hearing the noise came to the door. The crowd came rushing up Wood street, the murderer, which ever one it was, among them, hia aleevea bloody, and here he turned up the alley towarda Giant'a hill. He threw away the knife in the allay, and aa it happened, in tho very door where the Mayor was. We are told he waa last seen while descending Boyd'a hill to the Monongahela river, above Pipetown. Dr. Kahnestock describes the wounds as, one on the chin, aim another on the ipine of the beck or shoulder, both of little account The other was on the left aide of the head, ab?ut oue inch above the ear It wai given with luch tremendous force as to break the akull and waa between two and three inchei deep. The murderer wai bent on killing him. Law ion waa a single man, a cabinet maker by trade, rather large and very powerful. It wai thought belt to trepan him, and the doctor did so, but the operation afforded him no relief ; he wai inaenaible until he died, about three hours from the time h? was wounded. Thk Mormons and Anti-Mormons.?The Warsaw Signal, of Tuesday laat, says, in a j>oMscript,that the pone lummoned by Mr. Carlin to meet at Car thage on Monday last, were amembling ; that six hundred armed men were at Carthage, and about four hun dred at La Harpe ; and that reinforcements were rapidly arriving. The poiie, it was supposed, would march to Nauvoo on Wednoaday, under the command of Major Brock man of Brown county. Aa we expected, Mr Couchman, the new Sheriff of Hancock countv, denies the statements attributed to him by tha editor of the Nauvoo Eagle. He says : " I have presumed that Mr. Carlin wai acting legally, or he certainly would not have acted at all It is the only coune left him, and I new say that I approve of the course he has taken It is always presumable that any omcnr, wno may nave proem iiui in m* muu> .?? cute, i( acting legally when endeavoring to execute such process; no matter whether Uia writ is a legal one or not, ao tho officer come by it legally.

Two companies of our battalion (Baltimore) are now on this boat, o n their way to ( amargo. The remaining four will follow immediately. The two which are now on board are under command of Captain Jas. K. Stewart. I would here take the opportunity of speaking a few words in reference to this officer. He is a gentleman as well as an officer, kind and yet decisive towards his subordinates, respecting and respected. He enjoys the greatest confidence of his fellow officers in matters of consideration, and it seems that his judgment is necessary before a final consummation. He is a son of the gallant Colonel Stewart, who so triumphantly defended KtoM Mcllenry during the last war, and the bright laurels won by him, will receive no tarnish in th* hands of his brave son. Give him an opportunity, and if 1 am not greatly deceived, he will prove himaelf one of Mary Iiaiiu uriguiesi niri. 1 had forgotten to lay that when wo left Matamora* this morning, newi had been received that General l'aI rede* wai on hii march from Monterey toward* Camar. | go, at the head of thirty thousand men, with the intention of meeting (ien.

Having occasion to visit this place, 1 lelt Boston one fine morning last week, mounted on n stage coach by the side of Mr. Fuller, an experienced and gentlemanly driver. The sun beat down with great power, but there was a cool breeze win 3h constantly fanned the cheek, and made our situa; tion quite comfortabe. The stage passes through I the new city of Koxbury, a growing and flourishing place, which includes within its limits many elegant country residences and fine farms. We passed the residence of the celebrated Rev. Theodore Parker, at West Roxbury, about seven miles from Boston. He has a very pleasant location in a very quiet little village, surrounded on every side by highly cultivated and productive farms. His house j resents a neat and studentlike outward appearance, with trees in the front yard, and other tokens of taste and refinement around the premises. Near by is the village church in which he officiated as a preacher, before his name and fume became so extensively noised abroad ; yet here his splendid talents and somewhat novel doctrines attracted no little attention, and he soon emerged from the comparative obscurity which usually attends a young country clergyman. After leaving the village of West Roxbury. a ride of thre^ miles brought us to Dedham, the shire town of Norfolk county. This is a quiet and handsome village, ornamented with large and noble shade trees, which render the walks pleasant, and impart a cooling and agreeable aspect to the whole place. A short branch from the Providence railroad, atfords the residents of this village frequent and easy communication with Boston, and induces many to take up their residence here whose business is in the city. Among the number is Mr. John Doggett, an extensive ueaicr in carpets, loouing giuss turn picture mimes, &c., ami father of the gentleman who is familiar to your citizens as the author of Domett's Directory of New York. Edmund Q.uincy, the famous abolitionist, and brother to the present Mayor of Boston, has a delightful situation here, where he spends his time in dreaming about theories which are generally pronounced Utopian. He is a finished scholar,a rank abolitionist, a non-resistant, a come-outer, a disunionist, and, in short, a regular Garrisonian reformer. The next town on the road is Medfield. It is a small but excellent agricultural town, containing extensive meadows, in which the farmers were busy with the scythe and rake as we passed. These meadows yield a good crop of grass, and they also produce an abundance of cranberries, which always command a good price, and are of much more value than the hay. A cranberry meadow is about the most profitable piece of land a farmer can have in this vicinity. The contemplated line of railroad from boston to New York, by way of Woonsocket, known here as the "pettee route," will pass through-this town, and will probably be of some advantage to it. Wc next passed through Medway, a much larger town, in which are several manufacturing villages, where a few men have acquired fortunes within a few years past. These men, it is not dillicult to ascertain, are opposed to the new tariff. It will undoubtedly curtail the profits of their business. The new railroad will also pass through this place. Mrs. Torrey, the widow of Rev. Charles T Torrey, who died recently in the Maryland Penitentiary, is supporting herself and children here, i am told, by industriously plying the needle Her father, Rev. Dr. lde, is a very respectable orthodox clergyman of Medway. One ot the first cotton factories ever built in this country was erected in this town by Mr. J. Blackburn, who came over from England in the same ship with Mr. John Slater, a brother to Samuel Slater, the pioneer in the manufacture of cotton cloth by machinery on this ?id?- '?f the Atlantic. He (Samuel Slater) erected tlie firfct cotton mill at Pawiucket, R. I., having obtained the means to do so of seine capitalists in Provi | UCUUC, WHO UrtU Idllll lit II1L BUUCCS? U1 lilt? SUIlCliltf ! Mr. Blackburn is now living in the town of Wnlpole, Mass., having acquired a handsome property. From Medway we passed into Bellingham, an agricultural town, and not one of the most thriving. The soil is not of the best description, but it ia near this great manufacturing village of Woonsoeket, which affords a good market for the urplus produce of the farmers. We passed the renowned hotel of Mr. Crooks, two miles from this place, (being within the limits of Massachusetts,) where C<3. Blodget and his associates, of the " law and order" army, made a forcible entrance. in the mglit time, and captured and made prisoners of several Dorrites, during the recent war in this Stile. For this act, committed in violation of the laws of Massachusetts, the gallant Colonel and two others were indicted by the grand jury ol Norfolk county, and a requisition was made upon the Governor of Rhode Island for them. They were arrested, tried and convicted, but their sentenco was delayed lor some cause, and what has been done with the case 1 know not. After leaving the scene of Col. Blodcet'f heroic and valiant exploit, we were soon in sight of Woonsoeket. This is the Manchester of Rhode Island. It has already beaten Pawtucket. A ilcv scription place, with some observations respecting it, as well as somo interesting matter* connected with the manufacturing businens, 1 will emuoay in iuiure leuurs irorn uns village, which may not be altogether devoid of interest. I have made particular enquiries in regard to the anticipated effect of the new tariff; in many instances these enquiries have been addressed to the manufacturers themselves, and their views at the present time, may be entitled to some attention. The fields of corn which I passed in coming from Uoston to this place, a distance of torty miles, look remarkably well. The potato vines, in some places, are dying, in consequence of the rot, as I was told. There is something singular about this potato rot. Some fields are affected by it badly, while other fields, in the immediate vicinity, appear not to have been touched. There are but tew apples, this year, on the trees in this part of the country. Rye, oats and hay, full an average crop of each, have been gathered into the barns, and the farmer will now have a little resting spell. " Etiquette In City." Sir :?I fear your fair correspondent?" The Beauty"?is one of ihose spoiled lieauties whom tho American people pet and indulge entirely too much. Politeness, forsooth! When did a lady ever acknowledge by look, word, or sign, any mark of civility or politeness shown to her by a gentleman 1 Never. They will permit you to relinquish yourseat in a stage coach or an omnibus, (and if full, to stand upon the outside steps, as 1 have 1 often done, but will never do again) to pass their fare, open,the door, help iheir children in and out, J without the slightest smile, or bow, in acknowI ledgement. Nuy, they will even (particularly if I they are pretty) toss their heads in disdain, and curl up their beautiful lips at you in the most proi voking and contemptuous manner, if you are tho least tardy in offering these attentions. For my | own part, (though I will yield to none in my devotion to and admiration of the sex) I have done taking tho slightest notice of these disdainful beauties when I meet them in an omnibus, or any oilier public place. When they want to pass their fare, I turn my head to one side, and pretend not to see them. If they have children with them, 1 move to the upper end to get rid of helping them out. In short, I return scorn for scorn whenever the opportunity offers, which (though at first it greatly rebelled against my natural good i nature and politeness to do so?yet t now begin to feel a sort of malicious pleasure in it.

Temple of the Ouern of Heaven, Xa tural Curiotilitt There is a hotel here kept by a New Yorker, but pork chops for the principal dish at dinner, for the small sum of three dollars per day, i* rather too much for one, who, although not a Jew, ha* 110 very particular desire for the commodity, so I took rooms at a fine French house?the proprietor did not wish it called an hotel, for then he would be compelled to pay heavy taxes. In this house there is no direct charge made for board, but when a person leaves, the proprietor it presented with the amount of his bill. The apartments are very cool and airy ; the floors nicely painted and then waxed till they shine like any mahogany table, and our private rooms open into a spacious verandah or balcony fronting the harbor, where one can recline with ease und comfort, on bamboo chairs. One side of Macao fronts a small bay in tha form of a horse-shoe, und along here are die finest buildings and the prettiest sidewalks. The quay, extending along the water's edge, is wide and well paved, and abaut a mile in lewgih, forming a fine parade ground for the garrison troops. There is a large building here, which we went through, appropri \ted lor balls, theatrical exhibitions, tea squalls, &c., by what is called die Philharmonic Society of Macao, composed of gentlemen who each contribute ho much a month to carry into effect these objects. On our way to visit the last resting place of the celebrated poet, Camaens, we passed through beautiful grounds, very tastefully laid out in walks and grottos. The cave is formed by the natural meeting of three immense rocks, half hid by whose shadow is the tomb, the attraction ot all foreigners visiting Macao. Surrounding it are trees and wild shrubbery so dense as to resemble a forest, and the walks are so arranged that, without a guide, one would quickly lose himself. Tho gentlemanly owner ol the grounds himself acted as our guide, and, before leaving, he insisted on our entering his house and partaking of refreshments. A day or two ago we vere carried by a palanguin, to the " Temple of the Queen of Heaven," a Chinese Josh-house far exceeding in beauty and grandeur any thing of the kind I have ever seen here or in Canton. On approaching it, it resembles a series of platforms rising one auove another with the utmost regularity,?the Joshes being at the extremity of the Temple on the highest platform. The Temple itself is in its natural state, nothing artificial having been added ; it is on the side ol a hill, and appears as if had been cut or formed out of the solid rock, but this would evidently have been a work of too great magnitude even for the Chinese. While proceeding to this Temple I saw a curiosity equal to any Barnum ever produced, at his most " enormous expense," it was a cow having a tail with the hair growing up. Now this may appear very ludicrous, but it was a very singular Phenomenon. Imagine a cow's tail turnedup side down ! Varieties.
