Tho speaker commenced by contrasting the relative position of America, in a religious, social and politioal point of view. One was the perfect Illustration of civil and religions freedom; the other, the embodiment of absolutism and roligious despotism, which wa? equalled only by that of Rome. Russia, at present, over shadowed Europe with her colossal power, and it behoved us to take some action to stay her onwird course. This could only be accomplished by the effect of onr example, which would eventually be the moans of redeeming Eu rope not only from the tyranny and oppression of its present rulers, bat from the fntnre thraldem of the Caar. what (said he), under these circumstances, la the action that wo should adopt I To take arms with France and England; to watch the encroachments of the Caar. All this may seem very well to some people, bnt It is very little a people that, in tho enthusiasm of patriotism, horned down their capital, these and tho Oaaruo tho Inon who, if driven to it by tho fortunes of war, will again make their sacrifices by Ore. Out first great mission aa a nation is to sot an example of freedom and happineae; of that freedom end happiness ir)tieh the Goepel alone can creat*. In Portugal, ho continued, and even ia Spain, throughout the Peninsula, cultivated and liberal men manliest an acquaintance with tho spirit and operations of our institutions, equally surprising and gratifying. The governments of the continent are little aware of the extent to which free thought pervadee the masses; and the day is not distant wnan la some portions of South ern Europe all that will be waited will be the light of dor example, and a few tone men raised by Provfloaoe for the crises to kindle the fire which the blood of patriots will not he able to extinguish ? a firs which will clear the political atmosphereof ths lovelftet land oa which the sua looks Ia the war now going oa It is the iatontion of Provi dence that this country should take th* lead of the hosts of truth and freedom. Let as all be baptised with th* beptism of the spirit; let as put on the aim or of Sod. I am only sorry wo have not a bettor emblem for onr country than the eagle, the rapacious bird of heaven would we had left hid* to old R*m* and Russia. Let Ihe emblem on our standard ever be "L*ve for man " The speaker concluded by expreeslng th* hope that the United States wCuld be the first in th* work of extondiag th* gcspel, and thus spreading th* blessings of true llbeny over th* earth.

Some good reouritles will be offered. The money article writer of the London Timet says:? This (April 27) has been an exceedingly dull and anxious day in the city, since, owing to the fact of no intelligence from Sebastopol baring transpired, although the goTtrnment are known to possess the means of direct communication, a vaiiety of adrarse rumors hare been circulated with considerable effect. Consols were first quoted at the closing prices of lait evening? namely, 80 to H ? from which they declined until there were sellers at t8V, the unfavorable reports of the speculators, which included tbe loss of a llne-of- battle ship and tho abandonment of the bombardment of Sebastopol, bsing aided by a statement that Lord Panmure intends to re sign his post as War Minister. A sudden rise in the corn market, in consequence of tbe continue! absenee of rain and the diminished expectations of peace, likewise operated badly. The gloomy tendency, however, was partially a> rested by better prices from Paris, oonsequent upon tbe journey or the Emperor to tbe Crimea having been postponed or abandoned, and a belief in some quarters that Austria will yet act openly; and the last transactions were at 88H to % for botn money and ac count. French prices subsequently reoeired, howerer, fhowed a reaction. Omnium ranged between H *nd K Sremium, and the closing quotation was H t0 Hi the if proportionate heaviness in this instance being atiribu table to a sale of ?600,000 yesterday and to-day by the Commercial Bank of Bcctland. to whom that amount waa apportioned by tli* contractors. Tbe closing accounts from Paris this evening were lass favorable than those receired at an earlier hour, a reac tion of a quarter per cent having taken place from the advance of yesterday The Vienna quotations, however, show some tendency to recovery. Ihe continental letters describe no particnlar altera tion in tbe appearance of the exchanges, except that at Hamburg they hare besoms less favorable, owing to a rise of H per cent in the rata of dinoount, which la now 2H per cent, some heavy payments having been required for coin.

Henry Dwight, Jr., in the Evening Toat of M ay A, at tempt* to justify the plea of uiary which ho wti up to avoid tie bay meet i?f hie promissory notos, to the amount of $1A>. OHO, by a studied ptrsonal attack upon mo. Reluctant at I am to engage in a personal oontroveriy, for which I have tettber time ner taato, I deem It dne to truth to meet Mr Dwi;ht'a column of Motion with a pit in statement of fast*. t he inott of these facti are within the knowledge of others as vull as myself, and from them tbe publio oan form an es timate of the merits of tha defence of nsnry now interposed and of tbe animua of tba party who thus seeks to avoid the favmcirt of honest obligations. So far as the ek&rie??f usury and fraud whleh are sat np ty Mr. Ifwlgtt, relate to me, they are, in their yener*! cope and meaning, and in their apeclficttione-ln tie a?rr??ate and in detail? ntttcrly unfounded. Thero has sot only not been any 1-ca 1 or technloal nsury or fraud such as oonld ron stitute nnaer any circumstance i, a legal or technical de fence;! bot there haa not been any attempt, nnder a iy eoler, device or pretence whatever, to obtain uanriins intereat, or to make with Mr. Dwight a close, hur. h or unfair bargain. On the contrary, ba waa dealt with ia a spirit <>f extreme liberality, and the anm of $300,000 wai advanced to him by a company open wbieb he had no claim, at a timo when it * a? laid that that advance wonld enable him to complete and make valuable a road in which hit whole fortune was lnrcited, bat which was then, in its unfinished state, nearly valnelerf. In the fall of lcSS, lfr. DwUht then being the contractor for the ecnatriiction of the Chicago and Miseiasippi road, became embarrassed, and unabla to por'orm his engage ment*. The engineer reported that $800,000 wonld be re quired to complete the work according to his contraot Mr. Dnlght set on feot a negotiation to obtain that amount from his creditors and parties interested in the completion of the road. Am one tbe#? creditors and parties were Messrs. Brown, Brothera A Co., ot this city; three or more hanks in New Hat on, tha Pbenix Bank or llartford, Mr. ilenry Ilotcbkiaa, of New Ilaven, and aevcral other indlviduala, who.it waa represented, bad agreed to advanoo SAIIO.OOO, vpen condition that the remaining WUU,UU0 should be pro vided by other j. art lea. An application waa accordingly made, through Mr Charlea Oonld, to several of the direot ora of tbe Northern Indiana Railroad Company, myself in cluded, to procure from that company aid to Mr. Dwight to the required extent; and it waa proposed, as an inducement to making the advance, that in addition to the benefit whleh our lln? wonld derive from the completion of the Chicago and Mississippi road, the control ot its management for two years ahoula be aeinred to onr oempany, by allowing it to elect, daring that tine, a majority of tbe director*? thna enabling i\gto proteot onr investment, and the general iote rastacf oar company. No action waa had by the Northern Indian* Company on thia sntject sntil the 15th December, 18S8, when Messrs. Bliss, 8t ryker and myself ware appoiated a ceomlttee, with authority to mako ruch contract In thia matter aa we might deem conducivo to the intereata of tho Northern Indiana Company. All tbat preceded thia had been informal? osi oat interviews with individual members of the board? no one np to tbat time having authority to aet for onr com pany, tha qneation having boon simply whether onr oompan* would entertain tha proportion at all. What followed were the lormal negotiation, aad oontraot made by .authority Of tbe board. Thia eemmittae did aat enUr npon tha negotiation aatH the 2#th of Decern bar. For several daya pnvloua to that date I had beeaia Washington, in attendance npon a s<*it then pending, and aboufrto ba argued la the Called Statea Court, in which the Northern Indiana Company waa a party. 1 returned to Now fork, where I met Mr. Bliss by appoint ment en ibe morning of tha Alth, for the express purpose of taking up thia negotiation. We apent mostjof the day aad tvening with Mr. Dwight, at a hotel on Oramerey Park, his ccnasel and brother being present portions of the ttmoi Mr. Gould was no* present at tUa negotiation at all, ho being tonfincd by siskaoaa to hia houae, whore Mr. Bliaa and my tell called npon htm. After discussing with Mr. Dwight va rious proportions and counter-propositions without remit, Mr. Bliss aad myself lert hi* late in the evening, having first. "ubiaMted to him a proposition, to whieb Ua answer waa to bo given the next mooning. The nextjmorning we re ceived bis answer in writing deoMalng oar proposition. Thli terminated my oenaeetiun with the negotiation, and I 1st* tte inaae even tag for Washington. Before I left, howev*. at the laataaoe of Mr. Idmnnd Dwlght, who sailed at Ike office for that purpose, It waa agree* that tha negotla'Jaat thotld be resaaaed. and aa it was impossible tor mo ta re main. tbat It should be pursued by Mr. Bliaaaloao, la ?hoaa aa'jon I tromiaod to acqnieaee. After I loft lb. BUaa renewed tho negotiation, aad finally agreed uptn a oontraot, differing In roveaal essentia parti' culars from any which we bad Jointly urged, aad which contract waa executed by hlmaelf aad Mr. Stryker. ou the 80th December. Thia contract haa never vol received my elgaature. It was at oace acted -pon by beta o-.t:a;t lag pertler? $30,000 In money advanced on acoMnt of It by tbe Nortbera Indiana Conpaay; kb? Chloaao and M'-ssis slant Board reorgaaiaed: Messrs. Mlisa Govid and uvself appointed direotors in that eoaapany, and Mr. Bliaa Presl dent of it, all before my return to tbe city.

Let n* sea wbat were the fact*. Ibe only reason why tbe Northern Indians Company pre ferred to make ? portion of tbi* advance In the form of a purohase of (took, initead of Baking It all npon a loan at fifteen month* credit, wa* that it wa* hoped the stock ooald all be ditpceed of atnonK the friends of the oompany at oott, and tbu* prevent tbe treutaotion from belaj too peat a burden upon the Unaueet of the oompany. The oompany Immediately offerud it for lala, and told all that could be ditpoted of at ooet. giving, whore detired, a oredit of four and six months. Some or the directors and steokholler* of the Northern lndiaut Company took a portioa, but mytelf not a share, as I did not deem it an object at the prioe. Mr. Biles, then President of tbe Cbioago aad Mississippi Com pany. purehssed tome; ab J Mr. Could, then a direeter, and now i'resident of that oompany, asreed to takd $3U,nt>0ot the stock upon the same terms, from which bargain ho was af terwards released at hit own request, l.et tn? public decide whether a?y c iiector of tbe Chicago and Mitsistlppi road would decline to take its stook at SO, when the '? market value" of it was from b 2 to 77 Arply another tost. What did tho stock cost Mr Dwightf By l>i* contract for constructor, be was to receive tQ.OOO.UOO, I payable one-bait in mortgage bonds, aud one half in (took of the company, for Imildiug a tingle tcaok railroad, with ne cessary engine and station houses, from Springfield to Joliet ? 148 miles? equal to 141,540 per mile for a railroad across the llllnol* prairie*? not lenced nor ba!la*tod, a?d without equipment, while the Miohigan Southern and Northern In diana road, foliy completed and equipped, will uot oost ever >27.000 to $?8,U0t] per tune. 1 state tho faot without commeut. Estimating tht bonds a* ? prior security at their fair value, railroad men can determine far tnsintolvos whe ther SO per cent wat ? high or a low | rico for tuo stock. It It untieeoftarv to dwell upon tbit subject. The charje of usury it an afterthought, only di<coverod, and first heard of when it was atcertalned that tie paper ?a* tho property ofbonatid* ho! den. aud that no othor defence oould avail to defeat itt collection. Uad it been necessary to set up bi gamy instead of usury, the laots In tho case would have tended as strongly to maintain the one defence as the tther. 1 have reither time nor inclination to do more tt an refer briefly to the other oharges contained in Mr. liwi^ht's o?rJ. lie alleges that 1 extorted nearly $3? 0J0 on a rale ot 2 700 tons of iron, then being atToludo, and which I stipulated to deliver at Chicago, on or before the 1st of Anrtl; and l'wil fully tnd designedly kept it back" until late in June; in short, that 1 made contracts only to violate them. All this is simply absurd. The iron whicb Mr. D. says I forced him to take at ?n ex orbitant prioe, was tbo property ot the Northern Indiana Kailrokd Company, and wat vituntariiy purohased by the Chios go and Mississippi Company of tto Northern Indiaua Ksilroud Company, at its procise cost to the latter company. TLo sale was made not bv me alone, but by the then i'reii dent ot tbe cempanr, Mr J or vis, and myself Jointly, un der authority of a vote of the Exeoutive Committee, of which Mr. Bliss, th n 1'resideut ot tbe Chicago and Mississ ippi Company, was n member, which vote authoriied u? t? sell tbo iron? prohibiting as trom soiling at less than nost? <o apply on the subscription tor $300,000. It wat tntlroly at tbe option of the Cbioago aud Mississippi Company to take the iron, or to let it alono and claim the mnney. But it was their manifest interest to take it? tor the reason that It was desired to complete the road at tho earliist practicable day, and It was Impossible to transport tbeir rails fr>m New York by railroad to Chi cago in midwinter, without a loss of time and an additional expense of transportation which forbid tho un dertaking. In short, it wot ohcaper for that company to take this iron which was already at Toledo, at tbe price named, than it would bare bean to have tent th?lr own irom New York by railroad, as we 'hen ondorstool. and aj I still believe. The transaction was for tbe mutual accommoda tion, and to the entire aatisfactien of both companies ? fully understood, freely talked over, and cheerfully audited to by, both boards or directors, without distent or objection from any quarter, and the idea that it was k compulsory ttle, n-ade witb a view to obtain nn exorbitant price and as a color for ntury, hat never unt.l now been hinted at during the tixtten months that have elapsed since the transacti>n took place, and is the sheerest pretext that smsihle men ever attempted to | aim olT upon an intelligent pnhlie. Tbe contract ter its transportation to Chicago was made under a srccial vote of tbe ooaimltt.ee authorising it by Mr. Jorvi* and not by mo. and it was transported at a price barely auf flcient to pay expenses, at a deduction of nearly a dollar a ion frim the then established rates, and at a price a dollar and a half per ton leas than the pretent rates; and yet Mr. 1). alleges in hit bill of complaint that the charge tor transpor tation wat too high, and ?aa designed as a color for ninryl Neither in this case nor in any other, since my connection with tbe road, have I undertaken ta make contracts for transportation or atipulated as to timo ot delivery; aad the obsree that this iron wat ''wilfully and designedly kept back1' by me, or, so far as I know or believe, by any one connected with our compaiy, is in it* length aud breadth, in letter and in spirit, en entire fabrication. No contract wa* evrr made by me, and Mr. Jervis denio* that any was ever made by him, to deliver the iron at Chicago by tho 1st April, or any othtr stipulated hire. I One dtnificant fact in worthy of *peoinl attention. If the u*ury charged to hate been covered under the pure liaae of atoek? ortho extortion alleged to bare been practised in the tale of iron, had any foundation in fact, it inuft have lun well known to Mr. Bliu, then President of the Chica go and Miaaiafippl Crmr>ai> y. And vet In hi< affidavit, an nexed to Mr. D.'? bill of con.pIatnt, he utturiy omit* (am I mistaken ia believing that upon application he refaae if) to substantiate either charge. Mr. Iilits is too high-minded a man to have as accommodating memory. Ot* charge remain* to be noticed ? that I refuted to carry out the contract of th? 90th December, until Mr. Dwlght should return to the Chicago and MiiiaiMippi Company tfiCO.OOO ot bond* of thit company for cancellation This I admit and justify. That company then had losal authority to tune hond* to the extant of $3,GoO "00, and no more. Bond* had however been leaned, and were then ontstaod lag, to the oxteit of $4,000,000, which illegal itsue of $.V)0, (ifcO Mr. 1). bad contracted to make right by returning that ? mount of bond* to the Chicago and MU*i**lp?i Company for cancellation. 1 hat company held no scourity for the performance of thia contract. Iwm not willing to atand before the public a? a director in that company, knowing of this over iatue aid yet concealing it; and I foliated upon the bond* balrg returned to the oompany; and until that ?hon'd be done 1 refniod to pay S^fO.lUO of tha money of the Northern Indiana Company to a corporation which wa* ? trotting Mr 1). without security to the exteut of $500,000. My course and tha reason* for it were known to and approv ed bv the dircctora Of the Northern Indiana Company, and I sutmtt thein without fear to the judgment of the putlio. lu tl.ia matter I acted from no disposition to injure Mr. I?., but from au l.onest deaire to perform a duty which the clr cumitanee* derolved upon ma. la providing the fund of iw>0,0Po before spoken of, it had been agrted that the Chisago and Miaaiatippl Company ehould eudoisc and guarantee the pa' ment of Mr. D.'a p*por to i hat amount. It had been accordingly dona t j the ex ton; offtW.OOU. the company holding no teeurl'.y except ita stock ! belonging to Mr. !>., which be hud pledged with his note* aa collateral at 00 emts on the dollar. I'rior, tlureforo, to tho return of the S0t0,l CO of bond a above spoken of, the Company bad dirtct and contingent c.aims upon Mr D., or were liable for Mm to the extent of $1,150,000, he holding at the timo nearly $S0U) W 0 ot the atoek. V?der tlieto oircumetancaa, in concurrence with other Directors of the N. U. Company. 1 ilectned it proper that an effort should I e made to amend the charttr of the Chicago and Mississippi Company to ua to Hake the ttoclc of any stockholder liable to the'eompnny for an; debt he might owe it. Sueh a provision is common in coiporate charters, and I can see no good objection to it, and an effort was made to engraft it upon the ohartor of tHo Chi cago and UUiiesippi Company. It. however, gave groat of feice to Mr. l>. and his friend*, and wu? net persevered in alter the i.ixi.ux ofbondt bad been returned. The $800. tOU fund was, l y tha terms oi Its subscription, expressly devoted to the finishing of the read, * ith astipula tion that it ahculd be " applied to that purpotc, aud ier no other purpose whatever.' " Thia fnnd wa* place! by the sub scriber* in tho hand* oi the Director* of the Chic inn and Mississippi Company as Tru?tees, for the specific purpose of completing the road. The subscribers had no concern with the antecedent dshts of the company or of Mr. D. Soon alter I 1 ecamc a director, a olaim waa mad* upon tho eom pary for mtai $( O.HOO to $?*0,000 for money whloh had been borrowed in St. Leul* upon tbo paper of Mr. D. in September or October provion*, and at that time applied to the payment of duties upon hron then taken to lay dawn upon the read. This I considered the individual debt af Mr. D. aa contractor foi building the road, and tbat it sbonld b? paid by bint. If the company war* liable aa draw trs or enaoratr* upon the peptr, there was no rcaaon why It sbocld bo paid from thia fund, which wa* provided for a very different purpo**. I therefore (tronuously objected to thepatmcnt. I afterwards learned that it had bean paid from the fund* of the oompany, and am told that by oae cflleer it waa aharred on the b?ek* to Mr. D., and that by ano'lffcr oflotr th* ohargo waa eountermaadea. I felt that such a u?e of trust fnnd* waa in violation of the agreement, upon the faith of whiuh the money had been advanced; an* I uniiormly objected tc it, and complained of it accordingly. lb* controlling Inducement to the Northern Indiana Com pany for making tha ad ranee of $800. 0(H) wa* that it WM agreed that for tw? yeara they *bouM have ^majority of tne director* of th* Chicago and Mi?*U*tppi Company.
