Several ladie* ware in attendance. Mr. P. A.

IU early introduction and perfect understanding, therefore, muit rece??arilv prove a great encouragement to a beginner If you tell a pupil that you are about to teach him mamtnology. and that it i* the " natural hi?tory of ell that large portion of vertehrtt?.l Animal* who nouritli their young with their mlilc.* he perceive*, 'before hi* mind's eye. a huge mass, that appear* to him to be too unwieldy for theunderatanding Now, conrnence in one of the usual ways, bt saakmif him acquainted, consecutively, with each partfcnlar animal, an.l he will travel over the ground wirti wMj-y steps, and with little hope of ever arriving at the distant goal Bui, if vou inform this same pupil at once that thW apparently incongruous ma** of creatures is distribute! thro'otit nine order*, which are clearly distinguishable bt natu ral marks?that, with the characteristics of these order* he can be made acquainted in leas than one hour, you will remove a great burden from hi* youthful mind Than, if you inform hi n that each ol these nine orders is (uhdtiri ded into generic, and the genera: into specie*, you will disMpate all the confusion and perplexity in which the subject appeared to be involved, end awshen in the mind of the pupil a desire to proceed in the required investigation* Thu*, by the power of classification, that is to say, by an orderly arrangement of the parts of the subject you are desirou* of teaching, *o a* to constitute one intelligible whole, early impressed, you demonstrate to the young and tender mind of youth, that the attainment of knowledge, however extensive, may be made plain and easy ; you aaaiit him (if I may *o express myself) to bear the burthen of acquiring knowledge, and you encourage him to accompany you in the investigation of subject which, at first sight, were appalling Dr. J*rrKiK? Wr?m opened the proceeding* by reading a very interesting paper on the fossil asteology of North America. In his opening remarks he read a tabular statement of all the fossil osteological specimens usually found, classifying the same under their different heads : Carnivor.i. Rodentia, Edentata, Pachydermata, Ruminantia Cetace*, Aves, Reptilia, and Pisces. The Trico en* Virginianua wai found in Accotnar, Virginia, consisting 5 part of a cranium. Dr. W , after Riving a Ron ral outline of several classes of the mammalia, and other animals, referred to the great mastadon, or the Ohio animal, which was very similar to the elephant in his tu?ks and arteology, the grinder* excepted. This animal had very probably a trunk, aad hi? height probably did not surpass that of the elephant, but muit have been longer, with the limbi somewhat thicker, and a belly lei* prominent. In spite of all these resemblances, the peculiar structure of his molars, suffices to make him a distinct species from the elephant, and that he was tour- 1 ished somewhat like the hippopotamus, and wild boar, ' choosing roots, Itc , for his food; that he still waa not made for swimming or living in the water, but was a truly terrestial animal. His bones are more common in North America tha> in any other part of the world, where they are, perhaps, exclusively found. They are better preserved than any other fossils, and yet there is no proof to lead to the belief of it* living existence. The : entire skeletons of nastadons now in existence are to be 1 seen at Peale's Museum in Philadelphia, at the Museum At Baltimore, at the British Museum, London, and in other places, particularly at the Massachusetts Medical College, Boston. The specimen to be found here have been moat admirably preserved. The skeletons of that at Cambridge, and of ene belonging to Dr. Warren, are both confirmatory of the opinion expressed by Cuvier in relation to this animal. The height of Dr. Warren's 1 skeleton is 11 feet, and that of the University 10 foet 8 inches. It has been determined by Dr. Jackson that the | whole number of ribs amounts to 20. Dr. W. next glanced at the other description of foasil remains?the Elephas primogniut, Kiephas Americana*, Lui America, hippopotamu*, equua major, Cervui Americanus, rhinoceroa, Alleghaniensis, ovii mammilarii, bospolasii, and the megalomyx. Attention wai first drawn to the megalomyx T>y President Jefferson, who published a descrip- I tion of some of its bones. The bones refei red to by him I \?M. one, a small fragment of a femor ; and two, " ot i and fix or seven others. Mr. Jeffersoa'a opinion t-ha' thi* ajiimal was three times as large as the lion, *"d that this i.rnnal may hat e been as formidable an aninial to the mammoth, as ia the lion to the elephant, ; The megalonyx was subsequently removed frutn the I clo?s " caraivera," and plaoed among the " ed<-ntata." Alter a few desultory remarks from members in relation to the general character of fossils, Mr. Mkigi lead a raport on the subject of boulders.? snid?I have taken home pains te examine boulders, asd h.*ve come to the conclusion that they are partially rounded fragment* of a great variety of rocks that appear l>itig over one another some tons in weight, and j some the weight of o&e grain. Some were found near | the surface, others in detretus. Theso merely appear i spherical. The smaller the size, the greater the smooth- ' netx of their surface, and the greatertheir approximation 4o the *phertcal figure He couiidered it wti desirable that geologist* ihouid trace with great care the nolled fragment* of rocka to the several quarries from whence they were diaraptured. There is hut one element in thia investivatiou: " Qu?4nan tpvra tuo in anno, en! kttibut functum. A Kiench writer remarked lome time ago, that the earth waa net yet well fixed; and that the order of the earth'* surface i< ant yet well fixed. After suggesting the prepriety of tracing the origin of bouldera, be con- : eluded Dr. M. W. Dicmitsorr next delivered a moat interesting discourse on the geology of the vicinity of Natchez ?tue remain* of the asilo*auru*,or Zeuelodon, the mastodon remainaof the Natchez bluff*, and the curiou* nondescript animal already mentioned in the paper communicated by him thi* seasion vt the Association?to report aeparatoly Dr. D. here exhibited a large collection of specimen* of bone* and fossils. Among the collection wa* the skull of a curioui nondescript animal, together with what wa* pronounced to be a human bone ; with variou* specimen* of sand and mineral*. These had been dug trom a lingular cliff, beneath a atrata of 16 feet of *and, eighty feet from the surface, on the top of which wa* a large mound, that was ascertained to be traceable to eight centuries back.

Police Intelligence. 8?rr. 1?SomnambuLiim?K clear case of that terrible malady, called somnambulism, was brought before Justice Osborne yesterday morning, in the lorm of a re. headed fellow called Jobu L.

Thii property wai identified a* belonging to ane of the lodgers, Mr. Alexander Deiluh, who?e pockets had been rilled by this scamp while he laid aiiee|^ The beauty of the Joke waa, that when the prisoner wan brought before the magistrate, and asked by that functionary what he had to ?ay in relation to the matter, the property haviug bean found on hia person.he toted tha> he waa unable to account for how, or in what (Banner the propeity came oa hii penon, except from the fact ot his being troubled with heavy dreams, which gave him the " nightmare." Maoistbatk?I suppose you mean you are troubled with somnambulism 1 Pbisqrkb?Yes sir ; that's what I mean Maoistbate?Were you ever in Boston I Pbisomkb.?Vat, sir; it was in Boston, that I had the first attack. Maoiitbatb.?Yes, I see, (laughing) this is a clear case of somnambulism : 1 think it would be well for you, Jack, to send on for some of the Boston lawyers to try your case. There, officer, take him down stairs: we must take care of John , for if he's suffered to go at large he might wulk out of a third story window, and break hia neck. There, (handing the officer a commitment,) " good-bye John." At thii last rematk, the whole court room wai convulsed with laughter, but not much to the gratification ol the somnambulist Grand Larceny.?A black fellow called John Ambrose wan arreated yesterday, by offlcer McCorde of the 5th ward, on a charge of stealing, a ihot bag containing $41,70 inspecie.

Nor did he return according to promise, but was met In the street by Mr. Conrey, and was told several falsehoods by the accused in relation to the acceptance. Mr. Courey has since diacoverd by Mr. Fernando Wood, that the clerk of Mesirs. Clark & Dodge, who cashed the check for five hundred and some odd dollars, to a man by the name of James McMillan, that check boingthe proceeds of the acceptance, given by Mr. Wood.

I, xne hock minei aoei not improve, out, on tne conirm rj, there appear* to be a tendency toward* a further 4aeline. North American Truit and Harlem were the only fancy stock* in the list that improved?the former having advanced X per cent, and the latter Norwich and Worcester, Reading and Long Island, left ofl" at yssterday'* prices. Moni* Canal declined and Canton % The transactions in the aggregate were very limited, and coo lined principally to Reading and Harlem. We oannot account for the existing depreiiion in the stock aaarket. Money i* comparatively easy?the bank* make loans freely on (tock iccurity at (even per cent, and discount buiinei* paper of the right sort, having a ahort time to run, liberally. There i* a very good bu*i- ; ne*? doing, and all daises of merchants are actively en- I gaged in trade; notwithstanding which there ii a down- I ward tendency in quotations for all kind of stocks?the really good, as well as the really bad. We conceive it hardly possible for this state of things to continue much longer. It is a long time since there has been a speculative movement to any extent in the stock market, and when the margin for an advance gets wide enough to make good operations, there will be, without doubt, an attempt made to get the outsiders once more into the traces. Many of the leading broker* in the street are at present bearing the market, undoubtedly with a view to inflate prices very rapidly, when thing* get ripe for such a movement. The Britannia, at Boston, from Liverpool, brings fifteen uay a iaier uewa irom an pan* oi r-urope. l ho advice*, politically or commercially, are of very little importance, and poueis very little intereit The market* generally were in a healtuy condition, and money abundant for all business purpoiea.

It facilitates expecioration, and aoon frees ihe lungs and air tube* frvtn the clotted blood, which would otherwise produce suffocation. Tnere ia a remarkable fact aliown in the post-mortem c?ammationa made of those who, in the last stages of Consumption, have resoried to the use of Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup, that the lungs have invariably been freed from any collection of pus or blood ; thus showing clearly that if the patient had resorted to the us* of the Syrup before the lungs were destroyed, a cure would have been effected. These facts will convince the consumptive thst delays are dangerous; if you have a cough, pain in th* cheat, spitting of blood, or any of the symptoms of pulmonary disease, procure a bottle of Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup as quickly as poasiblc : it will check th* cough, soften and ripen the al>aceaa of th* lungs ; you will eipectorate eaaily and freely, discharging all thr morbid matter from the aiMreaaela, which cauae it contain! the moat valuable vegetable tunica ; it will always regulate the bowela without the uae of eathartica, and the patient'a atreof h la not reduced, for the weaknt conaneiptive take Scherick's Pulmonic Byrup, and finds it to strengthen hia ayatem and improve hia appetite.

We received the following telegraphic despatch last night from Baltimore, New Orleans papers having been received ill that city to the 27ih ot August. The steamship Alabama bad arrived from Orasos Santiago, whence *h?' sailed 2-lih ult. Report says that Gen. Worth, with 2000 men, had left Camargo, and had proceeded 25 miles towards Monterey Captain Duncan returned to Cnmargo on the 11th, from his reconnoisance into the interior. Captain McCullogh, who was along with his rangers, had killed a Mexican, who was on an American horse at the time. Captain Duncan marched into Putna Aqtiado V> the night, anil took the place, having killed one Mexican and shattered the arm of another, while they were at'empting to leave to escape. Capt.Duncan next marched to Scralvo,where ho arrived and possessed himself without molestation. After reconnoitering he left the town, and returned to Cumargo by the way of Agna Segiias and Meir. It is thought that Seralvo will be made a depot, having a commanding position and good water. It was said that the Mexicans were concentrated at Monterey to give our lotces a fight. A body of 1000 well appointed cavalry had arrived at Saltillo. A large force of mounted men had been sent to cut off Col Hays. Gen. P. F. Smith arrived at Camargo on the 11th, and was to take command of the 2d brigade, composed of the 5th and 7th regiments of U. S. infantry. The weather had become very hot at Camargo; the troops continuing healthy nevertheless. There were 10,000 volunteers, and 300 regulars on the Rio Grande, and more constantly arriving. The movement of the troops took place in th? night. An American citizen had arrived at Camargo on the 14th ult., from Monterey, who repotted that there were at that place 8,000 rancheros and 4000 regular troops. Capt. Duncan had gone out again ?n a reconnoitering excursion in the direction of Jemima. Well informed men thought it would be imprudent for General Taylor to move up to Monterey, with less than 10,000 well disciplined troops. General Taylor has had to use harsh measures with some of the rum venders, hanging about his camp. The Picayune Extra says that Gen. Worth had not left Cumargo on the 15th, but was to start from there the next week. Campeachy dates, via Havana, to the 5th ult. had been received at New Orleans, which state that some outbreaks had occurred at Yucatan, but they were of an unimportant nature. Capt. Gregory, of the U. S. lrigate Raritan, at Pensacola, had received orders from the War Department to detail a fast vessel, either merchantman or vessel of war, to carry despatches to Chagres, from thence to be conveyed to our squadron in the Pacific. The brig Perry had been selected for that mirnose. A vessel had arrived at Now Orleans from Alvarado. The Picayunt says?"This shows that the blockade of the Mcxican ports is a humbug. The blockade appears to give the Mexicans little uneasiness, as Alvarado is inconvenient as Vera Cruz, and at that place vessels find no difficulty in passing to and from." BY THE MAIL8.

The approaching annivertary of the ba'tlo ot North Point will be celebrated in thia city by one of the great it military display* witnessed her* for a number of yean. A number of companiaa from the country round propone to viait the city, and Capt. Harrington ' cavalry troop from Philadelphia will be preaent. The " box-game" gentry, from New York, are driving a thriving buaineM in thia vicinity. The captain of a Pennsylvania canal boat waa itopped yeaterday, in the lower part of the city, by a genteel looking young man, and a*ked if be could take a dozen barrela of freight On being anawered in the affirmative, they atarted off tog* the r to settle tho business. On their way to the whart, a third party, with a small box in hit hud, stopped them to inquire where the Fieui-h Museum wee. stating that he had a great curiosity, which he desired to deposit there The box was then exhibited, and the freighting friend of the captain borrowed JilA of the latter to bet on the fact of a piece of paper being in the box, whicb, of courae, he lout, and then started off* in a hurry to obtain the money to refund, but has not since been heard of. The bug l'lanet is now loading at this port for Brazoa Santiago, with wagons, oats and provisions for the army. The citv and county of Alexandria, U C., have, it seems, fully retrocedcd themselves to the State of Virgiuia. At tne close of the polls I understand the vote stoed730 in favor, to 'J40 against?a clear majority of MO. All white male residents of the county weie entitled to vote, and amoug the retrocession vote is to be lound all those who hold no roal estate The anti retrocession vote is composed entirely oi property holders, and it ia believed the 3J0 aie stronger in this view of the ques,m.. ikon ika u hnU 7;iO in favor ol'the measure The defeated party are, of course. in a terrible pauion relative to the rexult, and I learn that a meeting will be immediately held for the purpose of railing mean* to test the constitutionality of the act before the Supreme < ourt of the United States. Mr Webster i* spoken of aa their advocate, he having po*itively aiierted that it waa unconstitutional, and that there waa no doubt but that the Supreme court would quash all the proceedings had in the oaae.

The democratic Convention convened again last night for the (election of candidate* for the legislature. Mr. Kink having declined being a candidate fo/ re-election to the State Senate, several penons were named for the nomination. On the fourth ballot, J?ehua Vansant, Esq., received the nomination, which nay be considered a* a triumph of the young democraoy. Mr. Vansant ia one of the most popular men in the city, and will rally hi* partr with double the unanimity that either of the other candidate* could have done.
