It ia a iDftter of thanksgiving that auoh a national uiagn aa tbankfgivlnga exiats We owe it to that noble o!d stock, the Jtwa. Tbey owed it to Ood hiinwelf. It was founded aa a n< CetaJty to man as a religion* creature To many of ua. it ia not aloue ?, day of thanksgiving, but of reoiioiaoeneea. It ia one of thoM magic glasrea. through which we look fondly btok upon our childhood, and. looking feel the voanir blood st|ll in our Tolhs and the sparkle once mora it I our eyes. How well I reni?rober 'he month-long ? * pectatlen of thanksgiving?the famous plans or allsurpassing merriment that were to crown the ling wluicd for day. We crmnt-d tbe werks, we reguUtod the eveetsby their relation to this joyous era It war ! m time when every man was to be rUJ, on prinoiple. in New England, not to be merry on thanksgiving day, was a Bin almost as great as to be merry on Sun- | day. What strange inconsistencies are wound up in man and in society! Among a people, whose stern and unflinching habits bad been founded under re- j Hgious persecutions, nourished in exile, and confirmed by the most resolute enterprise. upon the most impracticable soil? wh?se habit was sobriety, wh'ise abomination was frivolity, wbote words were few and measured. whose thoughts were hich and sinoere ? tbat, among such a people, there should have sprung up took a joyous sujioa as this, of redolent, Jtughlnf, rotnptng thauksgtvlng, is indeed surprising All *6ur6ti of uautsrd mirtbfulne?s were drdicat?d to this day. It was religious, on thankrgiviDg day, to say to tbe whole man, *' Oo forth and thine with unrestricted glee." At other times, it was their business to labor, gravely to discourse, seriously to study wisdom. On this day their supreme business was to be happy. All people, princes, and all the judges of the earth, both young men and maiden*. old men and ohlldren, were on this day to praise the LoTd. When, to our exceeding joy, the proclamation was read on the preceding Sabbath, announcing that the time had oomn. no oohool was strong enough to hold us from proclamation Sunday till thanksgiving Thursday Then dispersed relatives began to gather homeward; scattered .VII4 S -a 4L- -l -? I- * t'uiiuiou ivubu iu? uiu uummoiu uouer [nan mer; tbe young mother oame back, sndwept on her mother's MM. that she brought back with her one dear child Jt>ss than last year ; or the yuan g wife wished eagerly to show the marvel of tbe earth, her new-born, firstborn child. It is agreed that never before was such a child born. The stalwart youth recounted his plans and profits; and all vied with each other in bringing ; out of their memories the various events of the fleeted year, and to pour out their hearts into the sparkling stream of family converse. As much as this custom, contrasted with the ordinary usages of New England, bad within itself the most amusing incongruities, it was a day both sacred and secular, religious and profane, of wort-hip and unbounded merriment. In theory, then, there Is no discrepancy between these qualities; but the process of praoticai exeroise, when conducted by young and old, made the most singular contracts. The gubernatorial procl >malion dehorted every pious citizen on that day from aeoular work, and exhorted him to give to Uod's house its peoulisr tribute. There was, therefore, a wholesome scruple throughout tbe fo'enoon. The found of the axe was not heard The far off report of some vagrant's rifle brought down the exclamation of good people upon tbe profanation. The reverend gentleman, after dwelling, In the same (train, on the manner in wbich thanksgiving days were held in New England, nreceaitd to say that such spontaneous customs are the exponents of obaracter, and that a nation wuoee iwiidgt were expresaea oy suob annual usages? the most entire abatement and humiliation before God. j and tbe ao>t joyous thanksgiving were not made of euch flimsy stuff that we can afford to ridleula them. It may not, perhaps, be practicable to revive or Introduce the oustom of vernal fast days They are bleak and melancholy enough, when they are not the hearty and unfeigned exponent of pioui fueling Nothing could be worse tban the appointment of a diy to be trampled upon with disgust. But I do wish that I might see that temper, that true greatness of wisdom, out of which fast days proceeded. I do wish that we might have pervading the refleative mind, such a sense of God's providence, of our own unworthiness, of honorable and ennobling humility, as should make a fast day not an outalde show, but a simple and natural expression. Tears are as beautiful as smiles?sorrow and sadness, a* mirth and gladness -and a day ef intelligent and devout humiliation before God, methlnks, would have as much In it that was natural and congenial as thanksgiving, and something more of sublimity. And surely our oonduci would famish as ample material* for the day of humiliation, as God's bounty doth for tbe day of thanksgiving. The reverend gentleman then entered Into a learned and philosophical explanation of what was understood by tbe word " institution," and tti application in society. He defined the term, in its general sense, to be one of the permanent, organised methods of bringing trutb to bear upon human conduct. He then went on to say, that these views will lead you to expect me to ay that all institutions must be su tyeot to growth, and, therefore, to progress. This tendency, though It cannot be overcome, oan be resisted. It is resisted. Th complaints are loud, and the criminations severe, upon tbe unsettledness of the age, tbe oonttant disposition for something new, the lust of novelty. That was the trouble a hundred yearsago. It was the vexation of the hundred years before that, and of its preceding age, as it will be ot every age that has life and energy. Every Institution is subject to mutation and change ; but ! nil those institutions that have respeot to human i oonduot, are exceedingly jealous of change. Au- ! thority and interest, or a blind and superstitious 1 veneration, or a timid and over cautious prudence, ' criate a conservatism so strong, that improvements in tbe fabric of society are reldom allowed to grow with gentle, natural, and ra<y growth ; but they are wrenobed by violent bands out of the grasp of reluo- | tant power, or they are n?nt like a storm from the | pent-up bosom of suffering, when it can endure no ; longer. Flagrant radicalism is the legitimate child of flagrant conservatism. Growth is the law of ssciety. | it ought therefore to be regsrded as a fundamental necessity? to be rejoioed over- to be provided for. In- ! tead ot a grudging and out-wrung concession, we ehauld anticipate and dispassionately provide for new demands, and rejoice to tee the ever renewing hunger i of the humaa mind. But it has been supposed that I almost a/ much of permanence belonged to institu- j 4ions aa did to the truths wb*oh they embody?that it was as ptofane to change a custom as to desecrate a religious idea And these views of the divine Tight, not only of the church, but of civil government ? not of there only, but of laws and usages long in authority?have prevailed to the greatest extent among those who have had iutellixence. and affluence, and authority en their side, and wbo have felt at onoe less need of change and more aversion to iti risks than the great masses for whom institutions have existed. Hence changes have larely proceeded from the upper clasaes of sooiety, until within a few generations. It la one of the most auspicious signs rf growing intelligence, that, in our age. the educited and the affluent are, to some extent, and increasingly, bending toward the poor and ignorant with a voluntary proffer of progressive amelioration. I have now come to that point at which I can state the design of this discourse, via First, to point oat 1 come phenomena of the changes of sosiety : and, econUly, In the light of them, to call out some fatts - - : come facta of our own day, aud their philosophy. The first remark that I make is, that institutions prepare the cause* of their own ohange. The imperfections which each institution successively developes, 1 point out the expediency and necessity of a ohange for the better. In this view, bow amusingly absurd are the complaints of authority across the water In resisting some new development, men are reminded of the ingratitude of the people. It is soberly declared that one ooncesaion only paves the way for another; that if this reformation be granted, it will not stop at that, Itn i with atn i?si iat> wnina nnH mnrn I m nnsl n t? at en n art Vi demand another. The reasoning In good. If man grow, thsv must have continually changing raiment If society U tending upward, it will either leave ita inatltutions submerged, riaing np over and going past, or they must be buoyed up and rise with tt. It Is not difficult to foreree the ooming times in Europe. Whether tbl? or that nation shall be free, now we may not My; whether this or that tendency will presently aneceed, we do not know ; but th*t there ii a thorough fermentation-that there U a real and unmistakable groundswell?that the huge masses of the people are fluctuating, by reason of new and growing desires, and following af?er new ideas, ttere oannot be doubt. 'Ihere Is no help for it. The result may be earlier or later, various struggles may be undergone; but there is a well-developed movement - a line of direction has been taken-there are feroes within and without to accelerate the motion?and change upon change, reform upon reform, taking away and building up-reform or revolution, and loog successions of them, are to take place, if there be any light in experience, or force In the laws of mind. Nor ought we to be surprised or alarmed if changes come upon us. Either we must be exempt from improvement, or else we must submit to those changes improvement always scapali. W? may clearly peroeive the distinotion between reform and revolution. Changes In the policy that are allowed, are reform; changes that, resisted violently, CUIDyvi bw *"* / ivmuiiTf kuoui, aiii ivruiutivuB. jt uo on* la a foroe txarUd within, the other upon and against ina itutiona.

The vigor of the victims will determine the period of reaction, but sooner or later it comes, because t' e orbit through which humanity travels to Ita vindication la lost running thron/h generations men forget to observe. We may always expect the earliest changes ot' a people ?rao Q*v < bees misgoverned, to be violent ; and the violence will be the exact measure of the InjmUoe of which it la the avenger Aristocratic writ?r? perpetually decry liberal movt mrnts by pointing at the excesa?* in which they began.

While these revolution* are the result of barbaric government, and Indloate a low state of serial organisation, reform* are the offspring of olrllU ration, and Indicate a liberty of growth. Society la safe. just a* Ita institutions are flexile to proper reform*. There are certain phenom?na attending the prooeaa of change, which It Is deeply important t<> observe and i study. The philosophy of them will be the philosophy of many existing States in our midst Wbea reforms are resisted, and comoon gradually, the changes will have taken place in the spirit of a community, before they appear In its forms an J Institutions. They lurk in the blood btfor* they break ont. Chance*, good and bad, really tske place long before they are deolared, or even recognized I n ohanges towards eivlliimtion, bt-rbsrio customs maintain their symbols long tifwr tbej are t traced. lo hang, draw, and quarter, Is yet tbe statute of Oreat Biitatn, but long sinoe dead in practice. Of the hundreds of capital oftences in her criminal statutes, few are now inflicted Courts used to be human shambles, colonies aul convict ship* have supplantei the block aud the gibbet. In changes toward civil llbrrty, the spirit always outruns th? institution. Popular right* are heeded for generations before they are admitted. Absolute authority lives la jower long before It perishes, even In name. Sove mgns and oouuoils yield* to popular demands, under appearance cf consulting their own profit; no that we see a monarch govern by hn people, absolute governments promulgated by popular edicts, rulers governed by their subjects. Tbo raum is even more manifest in religious progress leng before their exponents ohange. Nations slide out of liberal institutions to more despotic ones in the ome way KepuMics are monarchical foi whole generations ; in fact, before they are inform. Courts are severe in their exterior long after justice is utUrly debauched Nupolton was the Krenoh emperor long before he ceased to be a dimple citizen or oonsul. Governments have changed in fact long before tbey have In appearance. They are dose with long before they are removed. They stand over empty fpaces. The power which animates society is in other receptacles, as signs and advertisements remain lung after com mtrce has removed tbo merchandise. That * hich is true of progress toward* good, is alike true of retrocession. A die-lining nation is always further goto within than without. It is laint at heart, craty in its biain, and thin and feelle in its blood lone, before the cheek lores its freshness or tho body its power. The spirit of an ?ge. the spirit of a people, is always in advance of the;r institutions. They are always better or worse than their laws and oustoms. Dut, let it be remarked and emphasized, that the discrepansy between the real and apparent oondition willjbe in proportion to the violence which permits the change of institutions. The reverend geatleman then proceeded to point oat some special practical views, as resulting from his general course of remark upon institutions, and instanoed the schools, the'family institutions, oourts. popular legislation. and republican forms. All these, however, were but the results of the spirit or the age and Its exponents. and were moulded and regulated by It. Tbe present irreligion, continued the reverend gentleman, may exert In our churches tbe vilest corruption-may intent our justice. The worst authority maybe under the face of liberty. The most fatal monarohy is that which employs free institutions. It is, therefore, quite in vain to correct institutions?amend or repair, when the evil lies back of all reforms, in the spirit that animates them. After dwelling at some length upon creeds aBd forms of ecclesiastical government, in which the edicts of authority still linger in foroe, and to the reluctance which is felt to examine these institutions, he went on to cay, that we have every degree of dirersity introduced under the same forms, (internments and oreeds are not exponents of belief or ecolesiastic<?m. There is no more palpable republicanism than resideR In the modified Americanized form of episcopacy ; yet, under such form, it develops the mOft unmistakable spirit of papaoy. While, on the other band, papacy, rigid, vigilant, sleepless, boasting its unelasticity, is beginning, In spit* of rage, and oontortion, and guashing of teeth, to experience within Itself the most protestant emotions?the most democratic liberty is stirring in its bo>om. In New England, w? have Congregationalism aFMiming the prerogatives of presbvtery; while in tbe Wet>t, I'reeby terianirm is relaxing its form into virtual Congregationalism. Having entered intoa lengthened train of remarks upon this point, he observed, that he should bo glad, would time allow him, to draw out the various and dissimilar spirit that animates our institutions He concluded by saying, that our safety is manifestly in the health and vigor of truth So long as it can be free to act?open Itself to scrutiny, and scrutinizing censors?it will afford our highest safety. If tbe highest truths of religion, which strike the very fundamental wants of the soul?whloh lay along the line of its whole existence?which heal its sioknesses and cure its health?whloh guard it when in peril, and nliita and BAAtlio if i n urnru nriiftfionpii u'h ioli nniir.

It will beat once the incentive to development, and the guard against vast changes?it will, at once, give progress and confervatlsm. Ood will be to us again what he once was to Israel?a cloud, going belore. to guide us onward, and a defending pillar of fire, to defend our rear. Blessed Is that people whose Hod is the Lord. Mr. Buckingham's Lecturtt on the Middle Ages. On Tuesday evening, Mr Leicester F. A. Buckingham delivered, at Clinton Hall, before a numerous and Intelligent audience, the introductory leoture of bis course on literature, learning, and religion In the middle ages. Mr. Buckingham comes to us with an established English reputation ; the Englieh newspapers speak cf him with high commendation, as a diligent and laborious student, and an eloquent and pleasing lecturer ; and the profound attention, interrupted only by the frequent applause, with which the audience listened to bis introductory disoourse. gives every reason to believe that the verdiet of the American publlo will oonflrm that which has been already passed upon him by the English press. The views which Mr Buckingham proposes to maintain with regard to the middle ages ere startlingly opposed to those whieh are generally reoeived among mankind. He proposes to demonstrate that at that period the means of intellectual and religious enlightenment existed in far greater abundance than we have been aooustomed to suppose ; and that the monks were unwearying in their labors to multiply books, to diffuse education, especially among the poor, and to disseminate a knowledge of the Scriptures. It would be scaroely fair to offer an opinion as te the aoouracy of these views before hearing the evidence In their support; and we feel assured that our citizens will ffladlv avail themselves of the . opportunity of listening to the testimony which Is to sustain these propositions, so diametrically opposed to j the ideas generally current among the public. It will be seen by our advertising columns that Mr. Bucking- j ham dellvera his cecond lecture at Clinton Hall, this evening.

The advices just come to hand are much later, and apparently more intelligible, than those brought by the Pdez,at Philadelphia, a few days since. General Flores, it appears, has also entered the field again in a warlike manner. The intelligence is translated from El Redactor dt Cuha of the 29th of (>ctob?r. ' The forces in the cattle of San Carlos, which, as we have informed our readers, is occupied by the parttr.unx of lien. Paes, resolved to make an expedition against the ports of Altagracia. where there were some of the troop* of Monagas. Af'er a combat, the attacking party was forced to retire with great loss. " On ike tnh it was known in Curacoa, by the Venezuelan schooner 1'emocracia, that on the 8th the squadron of Monagas was to leave Puerto Cabelio.

' Thin day having been not apart bjr the neeutive of 1 | th* ... . . v..?W. . the nuiceious blessings we have, m a p?op u. n j < joyed during the past year, nearly all kind* of busines* j J was suspended, and tbe attention of all classes has i > been ooutined principally to feasting and vnrions other i icethods of enjoymmt. All places of publio amuse, mint were crowded. and the fine weather gave all an ( opportunity to attend to all out-door awusummits ? Wall street was nearly deserted, and all the stores and j wnrehouces in the lower part of the city doped. The annexed extract from the letter of a corres. j pondent in London, gives an account of the manner (! in which the reaction in railways was produced:? j ''One cause of this decline was the distrust of the ' publio as to tbe aocount* of these companies, and also tbe total absence of any authorized statement* by which the shareholders could estimate the liabilities that bad been incurred for branch lines and extensions \ j tt to be constructed. About a fortnight back, the plainly pointed out this fact, and asserted that ' the dowuward course of railway property would never ij be arrested until full and reliable information was , given on the points in question The public conourrud > in the opinion and the result was. that the leading < compuny ? the London and North Western?felt itself > 1 compelled to ooroply with the demand. A statement of its tffuirs was accordingly prepared and published, | { and as from this it appeared that the directors had i , abandoned no lots than 14 Hues, for the construction i of which they had obtaiutd acts of Tariiament, and < which were to cost no less than jL'6.000 000 sterling, it had tbe tilecti of checking tbe pauic and causing the shares of this company to advauce from 99 to 121? that is to ray, front 1 discount to 21 premium The \ exsmnle bavins been set by the London and North We* tern Company, the other principal lines hal of | t crurse do alternative but to adopt a similar course, 1 and r.otlfications have consequently appealed that in j J these cases, alto, statements are in preparation. To a J considerable degree, therefore, the panic has been ar- ' t rested, but still prices on the whole are not much j j higher than thev were a month back. After the jump t conttquent on the London and North Western statement there was a tendency to reaction, but the reduction of interest by the bank has again imparted firm- , nets." , In view of there facts, we confidently reiterate our | 1 opinion that another reaction, the reverse of that just j ' realized, will talce place before tho lapse of many weeks { | The second sober thought of the public will satisfy ' them that it will be impossible to sustain prices, and j 1 the only alternative la to seHle down upan present j 1 value, arrest the extension of new lines, and extricate, 1 if possible, the a (lairs of the old oompanies from the dim cultles surrounding them. As moderately, and appa rently as safely, as we have advanced in the oonstruo" tion of these worka, in this country, it will only be with the most judicious and economical management in the world that we shall be able to avoid the panio experienced in Oreat llritain. We ar^ in the midst of greater embarrassments than is generally imagined, and it is with fear and trembling that we oontemplate | the petition of some of our companies. We trust all j will go well; that they will be able to complete their ! roads, and place them in a position to beoome produo. tive as soon as possible. The improvement realized in Kogland, noticed above, it appears, was the result more of a combination among managers to restore public confidence, than from any actual increase in : the productiveness of the lines, or value of the invest- j ments, and when it salts these parties to lot prices down again, they will not find it very difficult to accomplish the object in view.

Mr. Turney should have the Post Office Department, it for no other reason, because it has thrived and flourished so admirably under the management of a Tennesee Post-master.

These eulogies had the greater effect, tfiat they came from one who avowed himself opposed to General Taylor's election; and of their efficacy we may judge from the fact that the Courier and Knquxrtr, of New York, had extracts from them stereotyped at the head of its columns. ?i ..i...

Scarcely a letter is written from this city now adays but contains a list of names which the wri ters aebert will lorm General Taylor's Cabinet and we perceive that the Cubinet making maniha8 even extended to New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and other places. Now, whilst v. e mean not to dispute but tiiat persons living here may b? able to pry into f uturity, and would doubtless mak* quite a sensation as fortune tellers, were it not tnat their fame as letter writers is already so great, wc would like to understand what outside barbarians, people who do not live within the ten mile equate, can possibly know of the matter! (J -neral Taylor has never even hinted a preference for any paiticular individuals; he has never stated that Mr. Greeley is to be Secretary of State, or Colonel Webb a clerk in the Post ('llice Department; nay. we are certain that only a few intimate frineds of the Piesident elect are aware that General Jamea G. lSennett is to be the head of the Treasury. Then how, in heaven's name, can people under these circumstances have the face to pretend they know who will form General Taylor's Cabinet, when the (ieneral aforesaid has in nfe confidants of no one in the matter Seriously, this (Cabinet making is a contemptible business. General Taylor unquestionably will enlist the services of (he ablest men 01 trie wnig party?out not ine exlrrn e Tving of (hat party?as Ins Cabinet; and it is altogether probable that lit the present moment he can tell a* little who the members of his Cabinet will be ns any one. It, will depend pret*y much upon circumstances, which time alone can unfold. The Nattoval lnteUi%enrrrp of this morning, in alluding to the rise which has taken place within the la&t lew weens, in government securities, snys, " the Secretary of the Treasury will be very ungrateful if he do not acknowledge that the rise ie attributable to the election of a wing Preside*!, and, as a consequence, the speedy adoption of whig measures. We have always been under tha impression that the Intelligencer \\m been asleep for the last half century, hut, assuredly, if it iin%cines it can cram such utter nonsense down the throats ot its readers, as we have quoted above, it must believe they are still more unenlightened than even itself. The rise in question, it is universally conceded by commercial men, h? been caused by the large remittances of 1'nited States stocks niad?; to Europe, and the confidence foreigners begin to entertain for them as investments. The largest amount of *tock yet issued to foreign account in one week, was that of tha week before last, when the result of the Presidential election was scarcely known in this country, much less in Europe. We ar* willing to bolie ve a great m&nv things. We will believe that perpetual motion nas been discovered, or that the moon is made of green cheese, but we canaot believe that the present large investments of foreign capital in United States stocks has been caused of General Taylor's election, for the aiml4'' reason that ihe news of that event haa not had time to I- i 1 ?. - A U._L r rt*H< II riUIUpr| nuu jjn auTttrs %mj on.r?(m- p and we are not aware that a line of telegra;?h wire* has jih yet been stretched across the herring pood. The price of L'. S. stocks is, at the present time, unusually high, almost approaching the " fancies,' and the chances are that they will go down a peg before i ext March. Will the Intelliftneer, ia that event, attribute the fall to On. Tayloral*>?g It may nut be generally known that a committee of gentlemen of this city have contracted for tha construction of a large equestrian statue of Oea. Jackson, to be placed in Lafayette Square. The s tHtue is to be of bronze and made from cannon oapfured by the General. We were favored to-dav with a view of the plaster cast of the horse, by Clbrh Mills, Ka* . the talented sculptor. The horse is rearing?standing upon its hind legs, which are so placed as to form the sentre of gravity. It 'en feet high. The statue of Peter the (irenf, of Kussia, is considered as the greatest work of art extant, but Mr. Mills* will excel it, frrmtlie tact that his horse stands alone, unsuppoii? d, excepting by its hind legs? whereas that af I'Mt r the (<r> nt is fastened by its tail, in additioa to itslegs. Mr. M ills has overcome th* great difficulty in liis work?namely, the placing the horae so us to stand unsupported, excepting br it* owa <rra\ity, and the life and spirit he has infused inle it. Th- weight of the whole statue will be aix tr.rM, and the cost, exrlusive of the bron/e, $12,000. It is expef ted it will he completed in about a year.
