BENNETT'S LETTERS FROM EUROPE, i Paris, April 12, 1847. Sporting In France?The tire at Steeple Chose ^ ?Religion and Rawing. Yesterday was Sunday; on that day was held a famous steeple chase?indeed, the largest that was ever known in France. It was Sunday, and a steeple chase. What would they say of such u conjunction of events in New York, or New England 1 As matter of curiosity and interest, 1 engaged what is called a coupf. and one horse, and rode out with a small party, to the sport.? Probably within the neighborhood of fifty thousand persons, of all ranks and both sexes?front the prince to the pauper?were in attendance.? Some are as moderate us thirty thousand, but the most frequent estimate is fifty. All the English in Paris were there, and many had arrived from England for that very purpose. The purses are made up of French subscriptions principally; but it is always the fact that the English jockeys invariably take the money. This result creates , great discontent and grumbling among the j French sportsmen ; but how can they help them- ! selves ! The English jockeys laugh at a Frenchman trying to study and become learned in ! horse flesh. In fact, a large proportion of the ' English nobility and gentry live in the stable? j are at home in the stable?and study from their infancy the philosophy and economy of the stable. 15ut the French have no peculiar genius in that direction, and are always at fault upon competing with the English in horse philosophy. Yet during the last few years, in consequence of the influx of English into Paris?and the prevalence of English taste and English money?a large portion of French society?of the physical. I showy portion?not the philosophical, poetical, or intellectual,?have plunged into English amusements, and have adopted the horse as the , companion of their sports and the subject of their studies. The race which look place yesterday, is only the second during the present regime. Since the time of Charles X, these nmusements had been suspended?particularly the steeple chase, which is thoroughly English in its character. It is now patronized by the highest French nobility, und even by the blood royal. The Due deNemour*,who willprobHbly he the future regent of France, during the minority of the Count de Pari*?if a revolution do not again change the dynasty?was present on the field, together with a vast number ' 1 of peers, deputies, and military men. 1 The place selected was at a small village with- j ' in six miles to the south of 1'aris, called the ( t Croix de Benty. About the hour when the pious Queen, and the other devout, were going to Notre Dame and the churches, to offer up their de- ' votion to Heaven, the Queen's eldest son, the Due de Nemour*, and the rest of the gay people of I'nris, were driving out to the steeple chase, in overwhelming crowds. It was a most gloriously disagreeable day. It had been raining all the previous day and night, and just cleared away a little, about the hour of starting to the races.? ! Tliiu aniipurnnci> nf u flpitr-im imliwpH inanv to go that would have remained at home. The I crowds of carriages were immense?horses and pedestrians in equal numbers. There are few re- | freshments of any kind to be found at French ! races, as every party generally carries their own lunch?consisting of meats, bread, wine and segars. The first race was to come off at 2 o'clock. For an hour before that time, the whole company in the carriages were engaged in eating, drinking, smoking, talking, laughing, betting, grinning, and%atnusing themselves. Home spread themselves along the grass and went to card playing ; but all were in good humor, and no fighting Indeed, there were several thousand of i the police and military, some on foot and many mounted, to keep order on the field and to arrest the refractory. But the French seem to be a very enjoyable people, and although they will talk and argue a great deal as if in a quarrel, yet they seldom strike or fight, unless it be in soma rare and glorious (meutr or revolution to change the government or the dynasty. They ' never think of fights on other grounds, and even j pnvate duelling among gentlemen, isgoingvery ' much out of fashion. The track to he rode over was in the shape of 1 r.n S, in some respects, going over the country j i.nd hack nurain, to the length of four Rnglisli | miles. Flu-re were over thirty obstacles on the route, !,e cleared by the horses, consisting of h'dges, ditches, rivers, fences, walls, streams, &c.. kc. I was situated on the top of a carriage, " at the toot ot a hill, or rising ground, in the vi- ' cinity of which were crowded together six or r seven ot the principal obstructions. There was a river twelve feet wide, ? f. nre four feet high?a t hedge six feet high, with a ditch on one side, t i d a wall on the hrow of the hill four feet,over " which the horses hod to jump in coming down. r About twelve homes started lor the first race? purse 30,000 francs, in all These horses are ! \ ?uch as are called hunters, not race horreapar 1 erctllmct, although some of them are blood, and may have been oil the race course on trial. They j arc trained lor hunting over the country, and to ? <V, swim, and clear every obstruction with their f riders on their backs. At the steeple chase, tha I gentlemen generally ride their own horses, all dressed out as jockeys, with caps of particular cnlors. Lord Strnthmore, with many other sporting characters, catne to l'aris from England, and brought their horses with them, expressly lor the occasion. The two races were certainly very amusing, picturesque, and full of incident; much more so than a regular fist running race, such as we have at Long Island. The jumping of the ditches, rivers, streams, hedges, &c., produce much incident and sport. In the lirst race, three of the horses, with their riders, tumbled into the stream, head over heels, and got a regular sousing in the water. In less than a second they were out, on horseback again, and off us fast as their legs could carry them. Two of the horses, just opposite where I stood, cleared beautifully a fence six feet high ; the third broke it down, and the rest of the horses then galloped through the hole with greut bravery, for it seems no horse will sver jump a lcnce when there is a hole made by juc wiiu prct'curu iti in i^oru oirauiiiiore goi i prodigious tumble, horse and rider, in clearing die hedge und ditch, hut he picked himself up at once, shook himself, jumped on horseback, and was off again in a second or two. The horse called the St. Leger, rode by M. Marron, won the principal race, 30,000 francs. It is said, however, that the animal was owned by Lord Strathmore, who had entered three horses, and rode one of them himself. The amusement of the steeple chase is very different from that of the regular fust race. The steeple chase is decidedly more full of fun, incident, and picturesqueness. The events of the race are so laughable, and so droll, that the big public fool seenis to be tickled far more than otherwise. During these two races, the rain poured down steadily from the dark clouds. The roads, lanes, fields, every where, were soaked. Those who left their carriages at all, or had none, were covered with mud and dirt from top to toe. I saw some fine looking ladies of high rank, countesses, or dutehesses, or princesses, standing up to their ancles in mud, waiting for their carriages, with their beautiful sable cloaks, ind Chantilly lace mantles, worth a thousand lollars each, covered with dirt, and wet with the aim Such u draggled and dirty set of people, ] foing into Paris, was never seen before, since < lome of the last revolutions. Among others, I t (bserved the famous tlanaueae, Carlotte Grisi, sit- 1 ing between two gentlemen, in a carriage und 1 ..... ..n.t ,.otu?;?,y ir >,? i UUII """ i UWO, ut, .. ^ levil was their driver arid principal post-boy. t took us nearly half an hour before we got ( iff the Held, and an hour to get to Paris. ( Whether there whs much betting on the ground, , know not. 1 suppose there was; but 1 made t tone myself. I never make bets. It spoils all ] he poetical and intellectual enjoyment of horse i aeing, considered rh one of the fine arts. The mly exception is in the case of James Grant, Esq., of Granton, now a very capital hairIresser in Ann street, New York. Once a year, that original Figaro proposes a bet of five dollars with me on the Long Island races, which I always lose?how, I know not. But I shall have satisfaction out of him some day, when he succeeds to his titles and estates?especially his estates in the north of Scotlend, of which he is a native, and belongs to the Grant clan. It seems he has a good chance, after a few convenient deaths of those who are ahead o'him in point of inheritance, to succeed to the title of Baronet, and large estates in the Highlands. He must wait patiently, shave and dress hair in Ann street, till a large string of the Grants die oft". Then comes his chance. But I had almost forgotten the steeple-chase. This species of amusement is slowly naturalizing itself in France ; but in France they are slow in every thing, except in fashions, danciag, cookery, war on England, and revolution at home. If such a race had taken place in NewYork, an electric telegraph would have been erected, to furnish the news in Wall street and Fulton corner?extras, with full accounts, would have been issued in an hour after the close, and splendid descriptions would have been given next morning in all the journals. In Paris all this is far behind the age. NeXt morning only a few of the journals noticed the race at all; and those who did, made but a meagre account of it. Ilad it been a danieuise, a new opera, a new drama, or a new revolution, they would, per n&ps, nave niaae more 01 u. Jn the evening, as usual, all the theatres were open; for Sunday makes no difference to the Parisians; or, rnther, it makes a difference in favor of amusements. Even balls and eoiries arc specially given on the holy Sabbath day. One of the ladies in the party that went with us to the races, was engaged to go to a lottery and a bull, given by the celebrated poet Victor Hugo, who lives in antique style in the Place Royalr, and who forms the centre of a coterie of French society, composed of peers, poets, politicians, nale and female, ol the most rechercht kind. French aocicty is all formed of coteries or circles if this description, each numbering from twenty to sixty persons, who meet on recognised evenings at each other's houses?are acquainted with each other's talents and tastes, and form a sort of dramatic interest in the events of the day. Every great man or beautiful woman?every leading spirit of either sex, forms the centre of such circles, und attracts around them such materials as have like tastes and sympathies. The principal amusements of some ure talk, conversation, philosophy, poetry, &c. Others dance, sing, play, have music or play cards. Each circle possess their own peculiar characteristics and tastes. The leading politicians, poets, journalists, eavane, have all their particular coterie*, in which every event of the day is discussed, examined, ridiculed, or praised by both sexes; for the women here?particularly the married ones?take as great a role in life as the men themselves. All young unmarried ladies, of every age, are nobodies. They are seldom noticed or spoken to. In fact, Paris is called the paradise of married ladies; but the hell of horses and young ladies. I forgot to mention that there were several lournalists, or editors, from America, attending the steeple-chase?one, from the lively New York Spirit of the Timet, who will, no doubt, give a good account of it?also, one, two, or three others from Boston, New York, and elsewhere. When will it be easy to find a few Parisian editors visiting New York, and giving in .account of their amusements! In a few pears, if we only take cure, we, in the United States, will outstrip all Europe in every element >fcivilization. Wc already feed and clothe a arge portion of them, and make them pay for it, ton. .Mr. Robert Owen's parting address toAmeriea las been crowded out of this morning's paper.

Mil JAMK8 O. BENNETT, Nk.w V'ohk lit R ALU. NKW YORK, United Btatki ok Amfhica. This was written in a plain, legible hand, on tin envelope, and came in the mails of the steame of the 4th of April, and reuched us yesterday it the New Orleans pouch, marked on the outside "mis-sent to New Orleans," and stamped witl twenty-two cents postage, which we have had t< pay. It is thus perceived that the i'ost Office De partment not only injure us by the shockingl; bad management of the mails, but it exercises i little extortion in making us pay for its blunders as in the case of this letter?the twenty-two centi postage. If the lion. Cave Johnson thinks li obtain a surplus revenue by such means, he standi a fair chance of success. It may be the intentioi of the Department to have letters, no matter how nnportunt tney may be to their writers, trave over the country, in order to swell the nggreguti annual postage. It will be recollected that important Govern ment despatches arrived at Boston by the pre vious steamer, and were sent to Washington bj the new route for our letters, by the way of New Orleans; but we believe the Government don' pay postage on its letters. Musical. Palmo's Opera Hook.?Rosssini's much admirei opera ''11 Barbiere di Slvglia." will be performed here thl evening On Saturday next Siguora Pico will take i benefit. Christy's Minstrels.?These favorite minstrels hnvi decided to remain here another week. They can bo heart at Mechanic's Hall, No. 47:1 Broadway. Swiss Bell Riniikrs.?Our citizens have anothri week yet with the Bell Ringers. They will give tbeii concerts in the Society Library lecture room. New Mcsic.?C. Holt, 1?7 Kulton street, has publish ed the muslo of a beautiful song composed by Mrs. Bal inanno, on the deceaso of Mrs. L. B. Wyman, of Brook lyn, every line of which is replete with pathos and sweet sympathy. The music is the composition of Miss Augusta Brown. It is extremely melodious and beautiful Medical Intelligence. Dr. Hollick's Pchlications and Lectures.?Thif gentleman is about to commence a series of his lecture; in this city, we understand. Tho first one will be given on Tuesday next, before which time duo notice will be given to the public of the part of the city where they will he delivered. Tho doctor is already well and favorably known to our citizens, many of whom derived much latlsfactlon and instruction from the lect ures he deliversd last year. It would he well, perhaps, for every man,wonnn anil child to become aennainted with at leant ;ho general principles by which these, their earthly tabernacles, are sustained in life, health, and strength; m they could then with some degree of certainty seek to avoid the various morbific agencies which are at present not counteracted at all. Wound health is the greatest blessing which can be bestowed on a person, and he who has it, can easily preserve it by duo attention to the laws of nature ; but when once the various functions have become deranged, how difficult is it to restore them to their heathy condition ! Dr. Hollick's lectures are well calculated to give the requisite information. and we have no doubt he will have crowded audi ences to listen to him. The little work of the doctor's entitled " Neuropathy," See. 8cc., is a very interestinf little volume, containing a concise summary of all thai is known up to the present time regarding the applies tion of electricity, galvanism,' and magnetism, in tin cure of disease. This Lkthko.n still holds its rank among the surgeoni of France. The patients in the various hospitals an represented as being vociferous for its employment during any operation, however trivial. Two hundred ani eleven operations were performed with ItB assistance, it the various hospitals of l'aris, from the time of its flrsl introduction up to the 1st March. Police Intelligence.

Tin- anniversary of the New York City Bible Society vil ^commemorated last evening? at the Tabernacle. The exercises were commenced by prayer, after which a psalm a as sung by the choir. e> The Rev J. M. McUoxalo, of Jamaica, preached the r anniversary sermon, lie selected as his text the 60th j Psalm, 4tli verse. Upon this foundation be built a sermon which occu' pied upwards of an hour in delivery. The Rev. gentle' man divided his discourse into four parts, the purport 3 of all of which was an eulogy on the Bible, without note or comment, which he contended was the supreme rule - of faith, without reference to tradition. This, ire said, / should be in the hands of Christians of every dunomii nation, and indulged In a philippic against the Church of Rome, for withholding it from the people, thereby s shutting the gates of lleuven ugainst them. The Bible, he contended, is, in the tlrst place, a centre and bond of unity among Christians, which excelled the vaunted unity which Roman Catholics pretended was ciiaracter1 istic of the Church of Rome. Secondly, it is a symbol '' of victory, in tho haiuls of Christiana, under which they 1 were certain of succeeding in tho warfare against the flesh and the devil. Thirdly, it Is an instrument for tho reformation of the world. Fourthly, it is the proud centre around which Christians should rally, if they would achieve social reformation and correct ubuses. Thoso were tho points into which tho f Reverend gentleman divided his discourse, and ho illustrated than in a manner that evinced considerable theological research and study, lie dwelt particularly on I the last point, and insisted that if the abuses which now exist in society arc to be reformed, it can be done only by ulacing the Bible in the hands of the people, without (as he before said) note or commentary. This was easy of accomplishment, because the Almighty in his wisdom j had permitted man to discover the manner of using sleam ?s a mechanical agent, by which an unlimited * nSmber of issues could be printed with the .greatest 1 rapidity. He ridiculed tbo now school of moralists und philosophers, and thoir endeavors to reform society 0 without the aid of the Bible. He characterised them us 1 ompyrics In morals and politics, who are engaged in attempting to undo what the gospel has been accomplishing. If they, he said, wished to put their principles to r practice, let them go to Africa or some other uncivilized r portion of the world, where they would have an opportunity of seeing their effect. We gathered from the gentleman's remarks that tho New 1 ork City Bible Society are engaged in re-supplying the city with the Holy Scriptures. Since December last 3,000 families have been visited by the eight distributing agents in the service of the Society. Of these three thousand six hundred were found destitute of them? live thousand were supplied?four thousand seven hundred and fifty-five copies of the New Testament were circulated, and two thousand fumilies refused to receive the copies of the Scriptures tendered to them, i The discourse euded with an exhortation to the mem. bers engaged in the work to prosecute it with vigor?to spare uo pains to spread the Gospel among the uuen| lightened?particularly among the numerous emigrants i arriving in this city, to the number of one thousand daily. If tho word of God, he said, were riot placed in their hands as soon as they entered the land of liberty through our doors, they would iu their future wanderings through the United States forma combination of streams that would flow into and pollute every village in the land. The tenor and pur port of the gentleman's discourse is comprised in this synopsis of it. After he concluded it, he sat down, apparently much wearied.

Prayer was then made by a gentleman, whose name we are not acquainted with, who, after he had finished, informed the audience that a subscription woul i be takon for the support of the mission in which the society wus engaged. The small sum of twenty-five cents, he said, would pay for a Bible, which might bo the ineaus of saving a soul, or, perhaps, the souls of a whole family. The exercises being ended, the reporters for the press rose to leave, as likewise did others ; but they had not gone many steps towards the door, wlion the gentleman begged leave to inform the audience that all who were not willing to contribute any thing towards theChristian objects of the socieiy. need not consider themselves un5 der the necessity of leaving the bouse. The announcet meat, no doubt, prevented many from leaving. 3 Foreign Evangelical Society. A meeting of this society was held last evening, at the ! Rev. Dr. Mason's church in Bleecker street. A large - audience had assembled at the hour of 7 o'clock, and at ' half-past seven, the Rev. Dr. Mason, Rev. Mr. Kirk, and J Rev. Mr. Cheovcr, of Boston, entered the pulpit. The choir sang an anthem with admirable effect, and a prayer was made by Mr. Cheever. Mr. Kirk read the 44'id hymn, which having been sung by the choir, Dr. I Mason rose and stated to the audience, thut as it had i been announced in the public prints that the Rev. Dr. r Adams would deliver a discourse on this occasion, he ^ felt called upon to say that the reverend gentleman was , providentially detained at home by sickness, and that ? the Rev. Dr. Kirk had kindly consented to take his H place. Mr. Kihk then rose and opened his discourse. His ' text embraced the passages of Scripture between the 16th [ and 84th verses of the 17th chapter of Aots, the subject of which was " Paul in Athens."' * " The reverend gentleman commenced with an elo* J quent exordium. Now Christianity buckRs on her armor to contend jn*^he?nigh -plkfic* of #ho field, lier ablest champiunris now In Athenspthe intellectual citadel of Paganism, the Acropolis^f Heathen philosophy. His antagonists were the most cultivated minds of the Tage; the inheritors of Grecian wisdom; the reprcscnta5 ^lves of the subtle metaphysics, nud masters of the be* wildering dialectics of the great thinkers, Socrates, 0 Plato, Aristotle, Zeno and Kplemus. Such men had not crossed his path before. He was not now before the Synagogue, where he could prove from the Scriptures, the Jesus was the Christ. He was not now addressing AgripJ pa, to whom.he could say, "believest thou the prophets.'" The very sentiment of religion was arrayed against ' him. Mr. K. then recounted the circumstanees under , which Paul visited Athens. Ho was driven by the Jews ' from Thesalonica, and went to this celebrated city, renowned for Its military glory, its philosophers, its poets, ~ and works of art, without any reference to Athens or its , renown. He entered it as a visiter, but as an arabassador from the Lord, whose orders he had. when persecuted in one place, to fly to another. In view of this subject, we have?first, an opportunity to look at Paganism or natural r ri'liiriritl fit if u liGrit iiiwl ( Dtitoniblntu it fmmi I'uhI'b point of vision. Mr. K. then went on to show what i'aul thought of the Pagan theology. All desired to f kuow how Paul wan affected. He was deeply-affected by i It. What class of emotions whs excited, we arc not told, only that he was greatly excited. His judgment f was matured on the subject. He had had the wisdom r of the Kgyplians, Chaldeans, and philosophers. He was prepared to judge, l'uul believed that man was essenl tially injured by false notions of God. and it is tho very essence of selfishness to consult our own ease,rather than help our neighbor to discover the truth. No greater abuse can be found, than to call this charity.? . I'uul had it not. Second, he endeavored to instruct the heathen in the truth. He did * not learn from his master to leave them to God's mercy when they were living in'tlie service of Satan. He " aimed to correct their natural theology, or undo their ' false conceptions of God and man. Mr. K. descanted In y glowing language upon the opinions that Paul preached and we regret that our limited space will not permit an extended report of his discourse. He explained the state ? of Athens, tne superstition and bigotry that existed there at the time of Taui's visit. Tho Athenians were just as c we all should be without the Bible, it was not strange that Paul should be afflicted. Paul entered immediately into the form of debate. Much of the early preach1 ing was debating. He went to the syntgoguo first to proclaim Christ to the Jews and proselytes, then went out to the forum and declared Jesus and the resurrec0 tion. He hesitated not to condemn tiieir idolitry. He 1 took no middle ground. He proposed the gospel as the i only hope of salvation. He appeared among them as a re h former. Thirdly, Mr. K. took a view of the text. It furnished an example of profound wisdom?a fidelity to the revealed religion. Ills easy, he said, to be found in a good cause, but it was required to lie faithful to God? r to be regardless of any personal risk thut might be rej quired. Paul combined flic soundest judgment with 0 discretion; he went among the people daily, he did not aocuse them of being too superstitious?this would liuve 6 been indiscreet; he exposed their image worship, and even wound up his discourses hy proclaiming the judg* ment seat of Christ Paul's introduction was beautiful. [' his text was not taken from tlie Jewish scriptures. Mr. K. thcu spoke of the wisdom of Paul, and coutrasted his theism with the philosophy of the epieurians and stoics; lie saw bythu ineaus of this the infinite value of the Bible: a the claims of the Bible on mankind. Man must be *o ? ??*?* "i "in uuiug. iiu uii&jr irjr tu iivi* without it, but he will find in the end that he ha.-* violutod a law of hie being. He must have a priesthood, I and a priesthood will have power. The question then is ,, what priesthood will he have? He returned again to Athene. They had god* of all kind*, but no <Jod. We ought to hies* Ood that we have a Bible. The learned gentleman concluded hi* able and eloquent discourse a* follow* : We have now before us the estimate whie i i'anl formed of the pagan theology and worship. There can he no doubt that this estimate wa* formed under r the infallible guidance of Inspiration. It therefore fur* nishes to u* a sure and unchanging standard, by which t to test tbo paganism of our day ; and a sure test of the t correctness of our own feelings towards it. But where arc f the true limits of pagan doctrine, pagan character and I pagan worship ? They am, to the eye of Christian faith and charity, not confined within the borders of heathendom, nor shut out of the limits of Christendom. Were I'aul to visit the Rome of our day, he would And a pro, portion as Ignorant of Ood as the population of Athens were in his day. In Paris. Vienna, Madrid, he would see as many profess that the upper classes arc atheists ; the middle class, to a great extent, sensualists, and the lower class, gross idolaters. I do not mean to deny or , disguise the tact, that there is heathenism in protestant countries, and much there that would move the indigi nation and compassion of the holy Apostle ; but I mean to nIHrm general important Ihctsfn these statements.? 1st. Many portions of the world now belonging to Papal countries, have never been Christianised. I understand by Christianity, the system of doctrine, worship and ethics "revealed in the soripturea There was an early departure in the ubrlstian Church, froin the doctrines, worship and morality of the gospel. The missionaries of the church became more and more corrupt. Zeal for proselyting became worldly and poi luteal. France was extensively converted by a military king, instead of a praying preacher. Whan the invading ' Oothsreceived Christianity from their conquered sub' jects, thej were receiving a paganized Christianity ' When Augustine went to llreat Britain, he was already > tainted with many superstitious notions. Thero are now entire populations in Kuropo and America, who have nercr beard tho pure, simple gospel of Jesus Christ. They are totally ignorant of the character of Ood?of the nature of spiritual worship, as their pagan ancestors were three thousand years ago. The places once Chris[ tianlted have been corrupted, or false doctrines have been introduced He then exhorted his audience to search the scriptures for their faith American Buptlxt Home Mission Society. | The anniversary of this Society commenced last etc- r nlng in Oliver street church, which oonaUted only of j the usual church serrice, and ? sermon hy the Hev, Mr I Brierly. The Reverend gentleman took uh his text the J 26th chapter. 9th Terse of St. Mathew: " (Jo you and , teach all nations,'' Ac. The scope and object of the preachers discourse was | ' to impress upon his hearers the necessity of extending j and supporting the various missions, both in America 1 and in foreign lands. It was a duty they owed, as far as in them lay, to give the Gospel to all nations?but their 1 first duty was to evangelise their own mission, which 1 imposed ou them peculiar obligations to provide am ' ply for Its welfare The lore of our native land, said ' the Rev. gentleman, was a noble passion?our country, ' right or wrong-but the measure of our ability is tie measure of our obligation. The Rev preacher pointed 1 out to the congregation the danger of national corruption and immorality They were the chief source of 1 our danger; pure uiorulity was. he said, as essential to our existence as the air we breathe, and the foundation of our morality should be the fear and love of God. Virtue and high moral priuciple 1 should be the basis of our institutions, because It is the only sure foundation: all else is but as shifting sand; but moral obligations could never be enforced without the aid and influence of religion. Above all things it was the duty of our people to tuko care that religion should not be neglected?no government could exist without it. The experiment was tried In France ?that people attempted to establish a government there founded on nature and reason, but the attempt signally failed. The reverend preacher concluded a very eloquent discourse by exhorting big hearers to make provision tor the support and extension of the borne missions. The regular proceedings of the society commence nt 1 f?l?lnnlr tViia slatr fhu huuotmmt fxf ihtx i.lmvoii in Oliver Htreot. American Home Missionary Society, Brooklyn. A very select congregation flocked forward last Sunday evening to the Pilgrim Church. Brooklyn, to hour the discourse of the Itov. Horace Bushncll, D. D., in behalf of the Home Missionary Society. At half-past seven, the spacious ediflco was filled by a very fashionable congregation, consisting chiefly of ladies, when, after the performance of a few pieces of sacred music upon the organ, accompanied with some excellent singing, and also the delivery of the prayer by the pastor of the Church, The Rev. Dr. Bcshnkli. delivered the discourse, taking his text from the 17th chapter, I3th verso, Book of Judges. In his opening remarks, he took occasion to dwell upon the subject of emigration In the early times, while he contended, that unless it was accompanied with a commensurate amount of true religion,it would tend to Injury, {'.migration, he further contended, was calculated to throw a vast influx of Homanism into the country, and it behoved them to look with much care and attention upon the suhjeot of emigration into this country. The Rev. Dr. went on to comment upon tho abuses which, ho contended,"were likely'o flow from general emigration. The emigration of Abraham differed from that of modern times. Lot emigrated, and his race had degenerated The'Bedouins were the descendants of one of the ancient emigrants, and they were a plundering and a vile set of barbariaus. The Reverend Doctor, after commenting upon the evils that attended the emigration of the ancient Egyptians, Grecians, Romans. Sic., See., went on to draw attention to the condition of the early settlers in America. The English settlers, in early times, were guilty of profane BWearing. and other excesses. Tho women set an example to the men subsequently, and stimulated them to habits of industry, frugality and virtue. Yet the people of these days still remained bail. The Rev. Doctor, after further calling attention to the subject of emigration?which, he contonded, should be carefully looked after?he contended that it was a selfish movement, in which were numbers of " wild Irishmen," and that it also encouraged slavery?denounced slavery, and deprecated the entire system in the South. The Rev. Doctor hereupon concluded his very able and eloquent address, when tho meeting separated. The American Society for Ameliorating the Condition of the Jew). The Rev. Win. B. Spraguo, D. D., of Albany, last evening delivered a sermon in Dr. Skinner's church, Mercer street, near Eighth street, for tho benefit of the American Society for meliorating tho condition of tho Jews. Every pew and aisle of that capacious church was densely crowded with a highly respectable assemblage. The reverend preacher liaviDg taken his text from the book of Numbers. 28d chapter and the latter clause of the 23d verse: "According to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel. What hath God wrought ?" proceeded to allude to the characters of Balaam aud Ualak. and their conduct towards erch other?the peculiar traits of character met with among the Israelites?that they had been God's chosen people; that they had enjoyed privileges which were not extended to any other nation, and that he had selected Moses us their leader.

City Intelligence. The List Mvstkrv oe Gotham.?Coroner Walters has for sevoral days past, been engaged in the investigation of a case involved in a complete mystery, and appears likely to remain so, at least for tb e present, from the facts that we have gathered on the suhject.it appears that a respectable widow lady of limited circumstances, understood to be a resident of Peekshill, and according to her own statement, recently made an application to the authorities of Westchester county, to have sonio provision made for her child, a boy abont seven years old. Her request was refused, whereupon, she came to this city and called upon the Mayor, hoping through his influence to have her child provided for in some benevolent institution here ; and upon the recommendation of the Mayor, she went to the Half Orphan Asvlum. where the admission of the little bov was. how ever. denied. Finding herself unsuccessful in the object of her visit, she returned down town as far as Chambers street, with the intention of obtaining accommodations at sumo hsuise for the night, near the landing of the Peekskill boat, so as to be on hand, and return home by it on .the following morning. Tne rest of the storymay be gathered from the following testimony, ad duced before the Coroner. Jamcs Bvant, residing at No. 200 Chambers street, being sworn, deposed that on Thursday afternoon ainau came to my house, and inquired if 1 could accommodate for the night, a lady and u little boy, who in the morning wore going to Peekskill iu the steamboat Columbia; lie asked me to go up the street aud see her; as ho seemed so anxious about it, 1 went up the street and saw the lady, and told her that I did not know but that I would accommodate her. although my house was full, aud desired her to come with me to my house; 1 carried her basket for her; her luggage consisted of a square kind of a basket, which appeared to be very full: she had a shawl thrown across her arm; after getting to my house, I took the basket up stairs to the frout room, also conducted the lady to the same room, which wns occupied by Mrs. Bali, who consented for the lady to remain there uutil I could get a room ready for her; I did not see the lady again until about niue o'clock in the evening; she was then in the dining-room, and asked me for some wine; 1 told her that I had none; she then asked for some milk, which I gave her; she sat down and drank it: while she was drinking the milk, John B. Kochotto, who boards with me, came into the dining-room, and beckoned mo to come out; i followed him into the bar-room, and after closing the door, Rochette asked me if I knew what la*ly that whs who was then drinking the milk; 1 told him that she was a stranger that was going to stop all night, and go off by the morning boat; Rochette then told me that a short time previous be bad been In the privy, and while there the lady in question bad been in the adjoining apartment, and that he saw her through an aperture of the partition, put a bundle through the hole of the seat?the buudle floated in the sink, and that, she took a stick and pushed the bundle under the water with which the sink is tilled; I have occupied the house since the 2d of March last. A Mrs. Smith, who was a boarder in the house previous to my taking it, still remains there, and has been confined since the 1st of May; her child died when two or three days old; 1 saw the certificate that tho doctor gave of its death, and also saw the coffin when it was brought to the house, but 1 do not know where the child was buried; 1 believe the child was a boy; no other female has been sick at my house that I am aware of; tho sink was searched for the bundle that had beep thrown into It; It was found about 11 o'clock that nighf; I saw the bundle after it was brought to the stoop and r >n**n*>H ft rmit.A.tmwl a di?nd child: I n??vi?r thn stranger her name; she said that she was from Peekskill; I am satisfied that she did nnt give birth to the child found while she van at my house; ahe had a little boy with her; the infant taken from the gink, when found, waa wrupped in a cloth. John B. Rolhktte. being examined, testified as fol Iowa:?I board with Mr. Bryant. On Thursday evening between 8 and 9 o'clock, while I was in the privy, I heard a window raised up that loads into the yurd, and soon heard footatepa that I thought were those of a woman. I stood still and held the door, ao that no person could get in. The person then went into the other apartment of the privy with a light; I could ace the light. I remained quite still, and heard a rattling of paper, as though there waa a good deal of it on the floor. I saw the light at this time shining bright by looking into the hole of the sink 1 then heard a rattling of the paper, as though the person In the adjoining apartment of the privy waa pushing it through the hole of the sink. Immediately afterwards I heard something fail into the sink, and on looking down, I saw something floating that looked like a bundle?whether It consisted of paper or not, I cannot tell?the person then put a hand with a light In it through the nole of the privy scat, and moved the hand around as if fbr the purpose of seeing where the bundle waa. The hand and flight wore then withdrawn ; the person then took a stick or piece of board, four or five feet long, and with it pushed the bundle underwater; after which I did not see it again; the light was again put through the sink as If fbr the purpose of ascertaining whether the bundle could be seen or not, and then left the privy; 1 opened the uoor of the privy In which I was standing and saw the strange female alluded to stepping up the back stoop that leads into the house; shohad a hat, also a shawl on .at the time: I saw her at the tame moment set a square basket down on the stoop, until alio opened the door that leads Into tho house, when shntook the h**hot up and curried It with her; as soon as the female had entered the house 1 ran and looked tbrongh the window Into the dining room, where I saw the female that had Just gone In from the yard ; 1 Immediately went Into the honee and passed through the dining room whero she was to tho bar-room and called Mr. Bryant to me , and toid him what I had seen; ho appeared very much surprised, and we both went into the yard with a lump and proceeded to search for what had been thrown into 1 the sink After working with hooks, fcc for about an ?? 1 lour, a bundle was found, and on opening It. It wan dlsovered to contain a dead child. We also found In the ink two alter births, one of which appeared to be very resti, the other in an advanced etate of decomposition believe the bundle found in the sink is the same that vas thrown in by the female in question; whereupon lie stranger was transferred to the custody of a policenan and locked up In the Third ward station house, to iwait the result of the Coronet's imjuc.-t upon the body >f the infant taken from the sink. Ur. Thomas Holmes. deposed as follows:?I have made i post mortem examination of the female infant found in .lie sink, and found a number of puuetures which aplearei to have been produced after deatb; the cuticle ,vuH abraded on portions of the body. On opening the :hest, and removing tile lungs, it was evident that the :hild had been born nlive. and at full period of pregnanjy. From the examination 1 have made, 1 am of tile jpinion that the child was born alive, and that it ban lieeti dead for four or live days. Cornelius B. Archer, physician, being examined, testified as follows:?I have made an examination of the body of the dead female in taut in <iuestion, a pott mortem examination having been made previous to my viewing the body?the lungs gave evidence that the child had lived after birth, aleo, the other orgatiR proved the same facts. The body is fully developed and has probubly been born at full period of pregnancy.

I am of tho opinion. from the appearances of the body, that the child has been dead from three to five days. With the consent of the accused feuialo. and without advice. 1 have examined her; she has not been tho mother of tho deceased child. The Jury rendered the following verdict:?" That tho female Infant came to her death by some cause unknown to tho Jury, and that said female infant was thrown Into the sink by some person or persons unknown to the jury." Whereupon tho stranger was discharged from custody. Death bv Exhaustion.?The coroner also held an Inquest at the New York hospital, on tho body of Mary Butler. nged 21 years. Tho deceased was found by policemuii Douuelly of the 2nd ward.ou Wednesday last, near Park Ilow, and apparently in a fit, and taken to tho station house. While at the station house, she so far recovered as to give her name, and say that (ho had been up town with some Madame, and also mentioned the name of a man for whom she appeared to have a high regard. Toward evening she was taken to the hospital, uud during the night became furiously delirious. Efforts were made to sustain her strength?she continued to sink, and died .Thursday evening. An examination utter death, by Dr. Washburn, showed that tho deceased bad recently boon delivered of u child, alid that death was caused by exhaustion consequent to that event. A verdict was rendered accordingly. Who Dots it Bki.ono to??There is a cur tied by the car or tail In a building immediately opposite this office, in Nassau street, who favors the neighborhood with some of the most heart-rending, hideous, and doleful yelpings imaginable. Why he is kept is a problem? probably to intimidato the rats?at all events, the thing is an insufferable nuisance, and as such, should be voted by acclammation out of the neighborhood.
