After the gigantic efforts of miaaionary snff Bible eo S*?t>es to spread the beneficent influence of Christianity feroeghout heathenish tends, the people of Sen Francisco me witnesses of the inauguration of Buddhism on Amert enn rail, Attended with unusual pomp nnd magnificence, the Chinese pepntetion hnve st test, nfter amny disap pointments, imported n wooden god nnd nil the paraphar mite of their worahip, or the pnrpoeeof erecting them M pennnnent institutions in our midst. The/ have in nst yearn celebrated annually funeral feasts, visiting the a es of departed relations, to offer articles of food for bmr spirits to feast upon. This year the same obeer vancee were gone through the day before this deity was sited. The introduction of public Idolatry Into Call i is an event that may well claim the attention of the people of the United States, and, ae considerable dis play was made, a d< seriptlon of the ceremony and orna ments aged on the occasion may prove interesting to the sender* of the Hjduid. Before the dawn cf Christianity, Buddhism was seven nentaries in existence. , It fs more sncient than the reli gion sailing itself Catholic, and can count a greater num ber ef followers, and a larger extent of territory snbject to It, then United Christendom. Cakymouni is supposed bo be Us toonder. Be had in view the allena'doa of the condition or mankind, and endeavored to prove himself a benefactor to his race. He wan expelled as a here lie from Brabmanirm, but ultimately his doctrines were adopted and were soon iccognized as a distinct re.iglon. The festival, as it was called, commenced on the 4th instant, and continued to the 8th. occupying 8ve Juts. The arrival cf the statue of Chi rig Tai, ot Joss, a renown ed character in Chinese his'ery, deified by that people, famished the occasion. The edifice in which it was held was erected In 1853, and Is called the See-Yup Azylum. The builting. constructed cf brick, is situated on fine ?treet, ard is of a sirgular sty e of architecture, the en trance being through narrow and devious passages, hav ing <n each fide high walls. A general invitation was ex-eno'ed to oar citizens, through the press, to visit the building, and at least twen'y thousand men and women mast have taken advantage of the access freely accorded. The Inhabitants of the Flo wry Kingdom are practised in politeness, and all who visitea their temple were treated with extreme courtesy. Entering on the ground floor, over which is suspend ed two large colored ba'loon lamps, is a spacious re ception room tastetully furnished witn cushioned chairs and tables arranged on each side. The walls were oo vered with paintings of females and children, with round fall faces and exseeding'y fair. One represented Ching Tai the chosen patron or the See Yup, with features very unlike any celestial that has yet trade his app?sr ance here. This apartment was used as a snnper room, and visiters were accommodated with tea and tobacco. The principal ceremonies, and the installation ot the wooden deify, were enacted in the sec >nd story. A large room, occupying nearly the entire floor, was devoted for this object. It was gorgeously farnished in oriental otyle, and its appearance at first bad a most striking ef fect. From the ceiling was suspended small pieces of painted wood,"having sentences in praise of the Joes; and ecattered through the hall were boards wi h similar in ecrlptions. On a large table in the centre cf the room was placed a hog and ram ready fir cocking; a large xoast pig. with fowl, p'.ucked clean of their feathers, and | various kinds of flab, all decorated with small boqu-is of : artificial flowers and gold leaf. On otber tables were apples, ora-ges, bananas and tropical fruits, arranged m plates like piles of shot The Chinese cuitine was put v xter tribute to add to the display of luxuries, and as it lades dogs, u',batched chickens, rate, birds' re-la and ragouts, the uninitiated would hesitate before par t?kixg cf any part of the feast. IMminutivs human fit-ares of plaster, shewing skill and taste in design had places amia the tables, anu appeared to stand guard over the many good things set out. All this provender was au client g to the g. a. and though mucnot it disappeared before the termination of the festival, it is left a matter af doubt whether that diguiUry regaled bimse'i with them or they were consumed by the attendant d^votee In an alcove at the end of the room ere >81 a tbrofie, upon which is seated Lhe crowned idol, J->sa; ben were. covered with fantastic figures, wave on either side.

It is a faL- specimen cl" Chines* wpyi sculp tw-e: bnt is entirely devoid of anything like spirituality The coarse and sensual predominates, and this crura; ?eristic is ob-ervable ia tbe adorsmen: over the entire building A triangular pile, reaembling a nutnbe- cf spears, "he points all di?e giog towards the apex, en twtred with gaudy feathers, are plated at tbe foot of the throre. and interfered some with tbe view from tbe front. Candles, wrapped in colored paper, were burning in front ef tie alecve, and yewler vessels, containing ling thin pieces ef sandal wood, were Ignited, and emitted a rioet mper-eeable imcke tbat pervaded every part of the bulidiig. Tbe religious sei vices were conducted by about a d z'u of the leaciagtren. It consisted merely of walking up and down tie rocm, baiting at certain placia to neel and bew to tbe Idol and to one another, Their dress cm ?htsd cf iorg flgursd silk robes, close at ths neck, and extending to he f?e', and fastened around ths waist by an embroidered belt, a Cipe worn over the shoulder-, with a cap having a red erown ard a *mU. brass ball at top, cup',-ted their official apparel. One who appeared to be of tigher dignity than the rest moved a'ong e*;b etde of tb-- table, frcea one end of the room tj the other, giving utterance to a low. mournful wail, followed by two ethers. The remaining nine were stationary, rauge 1 from the throne on both sides to the door. They ko-lt occasionally on eushi'<ns placed -m tbe floor, ben ting io adoration to the efligv till their heads touched tbe ground. It would be ciffi:ult to understand, much lets dee-ribe, ell 1he mioutisc of the fonu gent b ? igh. Tbe m >irt dainty articles of food were made ofi 1 to tbe god.

These exerc ses prevail among the common people In China, and were re Cited during the festival. The poorer cla- ee, dre eed their best at.ire, (those of mode-ate means wore blue gowns reaching from the neck to toe feet,) were sileot ?peetators, and, as tneir women were entirely exrladed an opportunity was afforded to observe what effect th-y had on the meo. With a few exceptions, wb^re some v > tariee came and paid their adora'ion when tie room wis newly decorated, It cannot be Mid much reverence was displayed towards Ching Tai.

[Fiom the Lexunpton (Kau-*#) Union, M?y 8 ] rbo I'm ed States District Cou.'i, tor the F.r-,t dim riot, K ah Km Terri-ory, began Its us-ioo m this city, on last Monday, at eleven o'olock, Judge l.-oompte presiding. We were present when the Judge charged the Grand Jury. His charge was full, forcible and explicit, cover ing the entire ground. It requires no little nerve on the part of a judge. In theee exciting times of oore, to imprest, upon the minds of the Grand Jury their responsible duties. Judge Leecmpte knew his du'j, and, as an sb'e, fear less and res rlute jurist, he discharged that duty. He called the attention of the Jury to the rebellious and treasonable spirit now prevalent in our Territory, and referred to the fool aseassinaUon of a public officer while in the discharge of his official functions. He spoke of the attempt on the part of men here to establish an Indepen dent government, in opposition to the present existing one? also to assume offioei of publie trust, wltnout due authority, and many other criminal offences committed in our midst. He toll them that it was their duty, as law-loving and law-abiding citizens, made imperative by a solemn cath. to arraign theee men before the recog nized tiibunals ot the country and make them suffer the just penalties of the law. He told them to summon evi dence In order to sustain them, and in all eases the sum mons should be executed, without regard to station, in tluenee, threats or menaces. He pleoged them that in any and all where such charges could be substanti ated the guilty person or persons should abids the dread consequence incurred by their own blind tolly and crime. He saiu the law of the land should be executed at all bazardr. Judge Lecompte's manner during the charge was firm, dignified and impressive. (>ceasionaliy, wmlet recurring to the many outrsges upon life and law, he grew warm and eloquent, which produced a deer> impression, not only U(.on the jury, hut all in attendance. Judge Le eoinpte la the man of the right stamp, both as a jurist and gentleman. Tbe Grand Jury have returned several bills of Indict ment, and it is rumored that the Marshal is now upon a visit to their Highnesses, Reeder and Robinson, but of oourse we cannot speak with certainty, as tbsee matters ere confined to the knowledge ot the court for a while. The Marshal and Deputies are out for something, and no doubt they each have bench warrants In their pockets. A lew days will explain all. We ebali attempt to (keep our friends posted, as this ie an important court upon tbe present crisis ofaffirirs. REEDKB THREATENS THE MABSHAL'S LIFE?IN , FLAMMATOKY SPEECHES. News has just reached us of a very Important charac ter. The c< art, day before yesterday, issued a subpoena for A. H. Reeder, to appear before the Grand Jury. The Deputy Marshall was directed to serve the process, and immeaiatsly proceeded to Itcumseh, where Reeder was then attending the tesiion of the committee, and served the summons. Reeder told the Marshal. em phaUcaily, that he would not at.end. Upon sucn re turn being mace, Judge Lecompte issued an attachment; the cflictr proceeded on yesterday to Lawrence to serve it. He lound It-tiler in tbe oommlttee room and inform ed him of tbe attachment he had against him, whereupin Reeder told bitr. Hi he laid his hands upon him it would be at the peril ot his life." He said he would not obey tie summi n?, be old net recognize its legality, and that he was exempt 'rota any arrest. "btlrg a delegate to Congress Item Kansas Territory," and r-peated again, vf toe Marshal attempted to execute the attachment, hs should do it at the peril of his life. Duriig the remarks of Reeder, he was seven! times applauded by the crowd gathered in tbe room aud around the house at tbe doors and windows. Upon Reciter's taking his seat, Sherman, one of the commitiee, in a very animated and warm mancer sustained Reeder in his en tiie position, acknowiecging him a delegate from tbe Ter ritory of Kansas, and that no "little Territorial Court" had the potter to interrupt Mr. Reeder, or that body, by the arrest ot Mr. Reeder. He was sacred from the touch of any tuch attachments. He said that they (the com mittee) had the power and sufficient ground) to have every member of the Grand Jury and the Court arrested and sent to Washington. He said many other tilings of a similar character that inflamed the crowd to frequent outbursts ot applause for Sherman aud exprensiom of re s'stacce to the laws. Immediately after Sherman con cluded. Howard, the other abolition member, arose and sustained both Reeder and Sherman. Hie remarks were passi nate aud itflamatory, and were received by the crowd in tbe same manner as Reader's and Sherman's. Mr. Oliver several times requested the oommlttee not to say or do anythirg in the matter, 'fwas a matter on which they had no au'hoiity to aet, that Reeder was not a part of them, and that his presence and privileges were only allowed through courtesy. He nor Mr. Whitfield had no right to demand tf them any privilege^ tat they were forcid to obey farther than courtesy c impelled them. He said this was a point sprurg and unanimously consented to in the beginning of tbe investigation, and That he was surprised to ste gentlemen pursuing the course they had up n this occasion. Mr. Oliver said that he. as a com mitteeman, fsellrg he had no right or authority to act la the matter, world do nothing Messrs. Ur?srd and Sier m&n still persisted in their course. The Marshal return ed without making any arres s, aud so tbe matter stanls up to this time. These are the facte just eimtnunicated to us by these grntJemen, present during tbs praceel Mge, and if we hid time shoal: take their affidavits to the statement. Atter the lemuike of Mr. OUt-t, Heeder Tery Indig nantly hlg jcsuitirg'y Mid Mr. Oliver that no wan wao atknt elec'g'd bimte.f a lawyer would dissent from the opin'ons of Meters. Howard and Fherman, that he was pivilsgtd from arrest as a Territorial delegate, and re jea ea "tr atif the Marshal ia?d bis hands upon him, u at he would do it at the peril ol h'.s US." WL?^ *e had time to make tome comments, hut, as we ttat?d 111 the bapiDdog, we stopped the press to g ve thete t'ene?but this w* will gay, and time will bear us out in tne assertion, that th's act of Howard and Sher man has d'ne more to create c'vil commotion ia Kansas, then any pieeering ten dore in our midst.
