In l<-s?'-niug. or I eradicating no great an evil The Keinale'luardlan Society should be looked upon an pre-eminently aiding t such an object, since it* motto was prevention rather than punishment. The bettering of aoclety must always be effected mainly by the effort* of the virtuous commuuity. It never could be accomplished, at any rate, alone, by civil or legiidalive enactment*; these always failed in their olyect, and if partially successful. I were very expensive Individual benevolence must > take the rase in hand, and with Hod's aid rightly directed efforts would be blessed with ntlcr.es*. If a 1 stranger were to judge of the great inns* of our juvo; nlle population by tills report, he would make a great , mistake. These, iu proportion to the vastly greater I tirinber of well eared lor and religiously trained cliili divn. were but as a handful nf our juvenile population. I Still there was a fearful amount of depravity in the - <'lty, whieh happily could not be paralleled by any other I city or village in the L'niou. Crime was driven from tk c country and sought to hide itself in the town, nn l s brnce its fearful preponderance here. We had to der plore and attempt to eiadicate the emigrated crime of i other tow ns and countries, and in that very circumstance there was encouragement and liopr. slueo in I endeavoring to consummate so good an object, we - should be aiding in subduing the crime an I annihilating the vice of other distrislN ns well an our own.

I Then turning to the dark hldo of the picture, the evil - was not incurable, but it must be done by private benevolence. Legislation was both luulty and wasteful. Legal measures would not reach the state of the case, lie would refer to the Uovernors' Almshouse, as an illustration of the wastefulness and corruption of legislative charity. The average number ot inmates under the control of this hoard, aceordiug to the warden's reDOrt. was. last rear. 054. while in the nrrtiAM. unnnul report the arcragt luring the year had been 3 WW. when the asylum could not accomodate more than l.(KK) inmate*.

Besides, legal ill^tsnre* frequently lacked discrimination in making a distinction WWMI p verty and crime, in ui h to the injury of those whose misfortune it was to he subject to the former, lie was of opinion that pliysicul reform should precede, but not stand in stead, of moral reform. Jesus by his mission beautifully exemplified this true charity; lie fed the hungry and healed the diseased, and then he auuli?' the mend Tiros. Let us '-'tile this perfect example, una tiyts ? rftjy an opportunity of reproach from the uLuiite* of religion. Then, again, he would make the return of these poor outcasts to lite path of virtue inviting There should be no coercion, but a leading ou to virtue, from the fascination it shall itsell exert lie was glad in being able to state, that two ragged school* had been established, and were doing good service.

Those who aided in this enterprise were deserving the thanks ot the community, since whilst performing an art of the most exalted charity, they were tending to improve the tone of society - sometimes even at great rs rsnnal sacrifice At this point a hyinn was sung by the rhildrcu of the Koine and a collection made: alter who h The Uev.

To give a vivid picture of tho greatness of the home held ?at New York, the centre of tho Uuion. there were landsd, during 04 days of the past season, 91 947 emigrants, more than one-half from Ireland.

Again, on our Northern lakes, you see the decks of our largest steamers crowded with emigrants, seeking a home among us. via t'auada. The report then goes on to speak of the various missions among the French, Hpanish, German. Irish. Portuguese. Italian, and English. in the 1'iiited States, the Spanish mission in San Antonio. The mission among the French at New Orleans has two missionaries auionz from sixty to serenty thousand French Humanists in that city. Of French missions at the North, one of these is In New York city.

Hut there are no counties in the State whose products average as well as tlio* 1 hove mentioned, and there are none whos# population is so numerous, unless it l>e those iiwhich our large cities are located.

They are economical M I u. laotrioM and yet are not able to make large fortunes. They live comfortably, and educate their children ros|>eotably. The means of education are numerous, hiuI the school-house is accessible to all. Ilesidei. common schools, we have a number of select schools in each of our lurge towns, where tichigher branches are taught, and there is scarcely w ImiV in our streets who is not w-ell versed m in* common branches of education.

There is now in progress a railroad from Pittsburgh, passing through this part of tic State, which will fotni the communication Itctween th* lisai and the great West. This will much change th?

Some of the able-i men in the relate have been elected. ? ol. .Mrdary, of the Ohio StaUtmam, was defeated by a very small majority.
