We had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Baird deliver the first of his course of lectures on Europe, in the Female Aosdemv. Hrm.Ulvn. lust eveninff. The lectuie whs attended by a numerous and highly respectable audience, the elite of the City of Churches. The Rev. lecturer fully sustained Ins former character; and we should advise our Brooklyn friends, who have not already determined on attending this course, to do so immediately. The subject is interesting; and Dr. Baird has had opportunity, personally, of making himself acquainted with the institutions of that portion of the globe, which few others possess. The subject of this, and the following lecture of to-morrow evening, is "Russia and Poland." The learned gentleman said tbat had he had his own mind, ha should have preferred to hare begun with Oreaae; but circumstances have determined otherwise I have, therefore, to oall jour attention to the least civilised-the northern parts of Europe They were settled by emigrants from Asia. It la only lately they have been known In Europe. The Turks are not oonsidered as being in tbat quarter of the globe; and the Urecians themselves speak of going into Europe, so little do these nations consider themselves Europeans In the eaTly history of Russia, as of other nations, there is very litttle we oan depend on. It is only when we oome to more modern times, tbat we can arrive to oertalnty. The learned gentleman gave a very minute and interesting account of thn early settlement and histories of Russia and Poland?the various revolutions aud changes which have taken plaoe Poland, ho said, was much earlier civilised than Russia, in oonsequenee of its proximity to Rome, and the wars it had with Germany Church matters, as well as oivil policy, completely separated, and, indeed, begat batrod betwixt Russia and Poland. The one nation adhered to the Greek church, and the other to the Roman What would you think ofaunioa betwixt these churches? I answer, impossible Yet the newspapers of this country said, last year, that ihe Emperor Nicholas was going on a special mission to Rome, so as to bring about a union. Every one in this rcom is acquainted with them and their ditNrenoes, knows that this is impossible; they ware continually disagreeing, and the consequence was, bloody wars. I'oland being farthtr advanced than Russia in oivllizttion. the arts and eoiences was victorious. They took Moscow, burned it, and extended their conquest several hundred miles beyond that city. The Tartars ceine upon the Russians also, r.nd they were nearly de Htrojea. ine nrst xiog ci ituseia rcigneu aoout me lima of Queen Elizabeth. They began t > have Rome traiisaotsons with England in 1614. Tne present dynasty commenced, yoti are aware, with Peter the Great When he came to the, throne they were barbarians You know what Pater did to raise the Russlm nation; travelled through Eogland, France, Germany, Stc , and collected artlsaus and introduced them into his empire. He also founded St. Tetersburgh. Many have asked me why he founded it in so unhealthy a plaoe; and the answer is very simple: he did it beoause he had no other place. Riga did not belong to that empire then. Catherine did more than even Peter for Russia. The present Emperor Nicholas, has also done much for bis dominion He is liberal in the encouragement of the arts and scienoes. These three were decidedly those who raised Russia Let us now turn to Poland. In the sixteenth century the reformation took place. Poland was near Germany, and you may well suppose would be ufftoted by the change.. The Roman cburoh had a great many proselytes in Poland. The reformation paseed over Poland and evangelized it to a very great extent The Inhabitants of Poland changed their constitution, and made their monarohy elective. The first Kingeleoted was a Frenchman, and after reigning a few months, be ran away and refused to be their King any more. There were only about 20,000 protestants in Pcland. and they found themselves persecuted?not by the diet, but the King Hed Poland become a protestant country, no one acquainted with its history would hesitate in saying that it would have been independent at this day. The Russians have settled their ditferenoe with Toland by blotting it out from among nations Napoleon, indeed. tried to re-establish Poland. He termed the present kingdom under the title of the Dutcby of War saw. The Congress of Vienna gave the Duchy to Russia, who oppressed them in every way. The conse queuce was a rise on the part of the Poles in 1630 to assert their liberty. Layfayette died in the firm belief that the present French monarch was at the bottom of the movement God only knows; but il so, it was very bad indeed of him to oause sush an ill-judged rebellion; bad it taken place when the other European nations would havs assisted them, It would havs been all very well. Instead of the Pope taking the part of the I'olee, he secretly sent a bull for privnte circulation in Poland, forbidding the people to enlist. The consequence was, they could not raise soldiers ; the peasantry refused to serve. There is another topic?the republic of Cra oew. In that small republie a number of men had congregated against Austria. They entered the Austrian territory, and this foolish expedition ended In the destruction of Craeow. When 1 was in Poland, I talked with these Poles, and said, are there none to essiat yon, and you Roman Catholics ' What has the Pope done for yon .' He hma done nothing for yon 1 said, how was it therewere so me soldiers so infatnased that they threatened to put knives in the hands of their dependents to cut the throats of their neighbors? The Pope was et the beginning of this. Lookto the Turhs; theyhave retaliated oa the Poles for what they did to them. The Poles rav .ged the cities of Russia, and Russia divided and oppressed Poland. England was overrun and conquered by the Danes, and Ireland into the bargain, and Denmark, tor this, has been severely handled by the English several times within the present oewtury. These thlogs are warnings, as beacons to us, saying, if we do utjusily to any naiioh on our borders, the time will assuredly come when thev will repay us. (Great applause.) The Russian nations has as much, or more ts-ritory, thao all the other nations of Kurope put together Tn- inhabitants of Russia amount to about fifty-four millions ? Russia is a very level oonntry, like a plain; there are scarcely any mountains. The soil is also very fruitful, thingh there are some places very barren. In the centre of Russ a, including Poland, a much greater population could exist There are a great many things in Russia similar to what are in America, and remind the American of his own oountry. There are a great many large oioimons in Russia ; there are a great many log cabins; in faot all log cabins, except in tnn cities, and made of round trees The streets are wide, uud the houses are separated from one another. The people are he spltable asm America I have been astonished at noblemen to whom I hud been just introduced, pressing me to remain at their house As there are points cm which we sgree, so there are things in which we do not agree ? There, there is an nbsolnte monarchy and ill spotism ; here, there is perfect freedom The present Kmpsror called my attention to these points of agreement,when I saw him. There am a great many things whic.'i makes one think he is not In Kurope : their dresses, their houses, their tables, &.O., are so different. The I-arned genii man here gave a very amusing aroouut of IMf M ner of devotiori, and the gestures which they cxtibi'ed on those occasions, prostrating themselves in eastern fashion. This is practiced, uoc only by the poor, but by the rich 1 have seen a youug lady, he saiti, come out of a handsome earrings, her servants walk with her into Lhe church, place a carpet for her to prostrate herself upon, similar to the others, and she think nothing of this, though thsre were AO or 60 people beside her. I will now call your attention to the various classic among the inhabitants of Russia. First, the nobles. There are half a million in Russia proper, but taking Poland, there are about a million. The present Kmperor in at the head, and in more a (ierinan than a Ru*etan. Hin rorelattaers bare so often married Hermans, that their f lood chiefly flung in bin vein*. 1 here are a treat many nobles desceuded from the follower! oftbe Bret king. There are rich and poor nobles. Thar* are about irtnnn orders of nobility. I can't tell yon their names. Some of theoa ars prtaae*.. it was curious When I wanted to nee a prince, and woe tula almost evert- person except the aeifn were prhaoes uobl?n, and "th?y wore known by a email badge on their c iota. An Amerioan gentleman went with a badge, and all the ptople began to kneel to him Nobility is easily got here ; captains of vessels are nobles; the sons of nobles are nobles ; one ordrr, some of whom hare not an income of f&Ou, look down in sorereigu contempt upon a wealthy merchant! Nobles only ore allowed to hare carriages with four horses abreast Thero ere various grades of merchants also, according to their ieeoiae ; they must give an account of what it is to tho government, and there are certain duties that tbey have to perform accordtng to their rsnk I want to cell yeur attention to the eerfs. Tbey are qnite different frr<ra our slavee here They are bought and sold with the still ? Tbey pay their masters a certain sum yearly, about $4 aod they arc allowed to till, the land.

Mr Editor :? As it is more tlmn probable1 that a meeting of the friends and admirers of oid Rough and Ready will be holdon on the 22d proximo, and that ne will then and there be iiomiiiutcd IV* people's candidal" for the Presidency, allow me to suggest, that hh there is as much, if not more, need of municipal reform, as there is of national reform, that that meeting embrace a reform in ihc city government; and that it resolve to emancipate it from the trammels of p 1 rty and party politicians, and out it into the hands ol men who will manage it lor the benefit of th- whole, instead of what it has been, for the benefit of this or that party and their adherents. It there are any objections to a combination of the two, let (i meeting be called for the exprcrs purpose of limiting reforms in our citv council, in order to have a reformation in all the deportments which require it, and these are neither lew nor email, and a reduction of our taxes will '> follow. 1 would propose another meeting to inIuire into the character, standing, conduct, he-, j EC., ol hnnks, in order to protect ourselves from j being swindled, as we have been, by the owners A^d managers of some of them, and that this Qeting appoint an intelligent, efficient com- j korVei*. to make the investigation and report to a sndl'quent masting.

Maysville r did not experience very serious inconvenience, r through a considerable amount of property was ? lost by the destruction of one ort?'o warehouses, i A considerable portion ef Portsmouth was overflowed, and much damage dona. The most se. 1 rious matter there, however, is the slipping of the hank, near the junction of the Scioto and Ohio, which now threatens several buildings in > that portion of the town with destruction.? I Slides have taken place at numerous points along the bank, and some of them very heavy, taking i down, in some instances, whole acres of ground, in others, the public roads rendering it necessary to rebuild it, and lay it further back upon tha (arms. Strewed along almost the entire route, are wrecks of wood and flat boats, and rafts of lumber. The bridges across the small streams are nearly all swept away ; indeed, I do not recollect to have seen one standing The lose to the farming interest must be very great. The ' bottom laiirls have all been overflowed, and J fences have been swept away for miles together. [ Large amounts of corn, in the fields and cribs, and probably much other grain,has been destroyed?while, in many instances, birns, and other i outbuildings, have been entirely swept off, or ref moved from their fousdations.

We must yield to Bennett, of the A'ftt York lltrald, tile credit of us imperturbable good nature and self possession as were ever possessed by any man, in or nut of the newspaper press. By enterprise and huzzaing, independence and recklessness, talent and brass [gold and silver, we say], the AVtc York Herald has attumed a notoriety and an income which ought to satisfy the moat craving app tit^for cash and lame. With all its faults, the Herald is a valuable paper to the men of business, an amusing one to the men of leisure, and a very Hnnoying one to its rivals. The editor has been repeatedly charged with levying "black mail" upon the public, a most disgraceful charge, it true, but easier made, we apprehend, than established. In the last number, Bennett has an ar tide on thin subject, and publishes a communication which he has just received, compliment ing one of the artists of the Italian Opera. He says that the note was accompanied by a one hundred dollar bill, "black mail," the receipt of which he gracefully acknowledges, and says he shall send it to the Lying-in Hospital in New York. lie S.IV'S Midi ne intends u> ,n Iitr.; aiiu 111! dependency of the Italian Opera, but has no objections to its friends sending him more money, which, lie remarks, " we shall duly distribute among the charitable institutions of the city? even to the extent of $jt52,79t? 37J" His article on the subject is wound up with the follow ing pious reflection:?"
