LOCAL llITtLLI8EWCK. Yocwg Mkji'* Cbhstia* Association?Tbe fifth unlverury of the Young Men's Christian Association was held last evening In tbe lecture room of the Smithsonian Institute. The audi ence was large and Intelligent, and manifested a great deal of Interest in the proceedings. The exercises were commenced with an elo quent invocation by Rev. Mr. Rittinger. After which the late President of the Association, \V. J. Rhees, F.sq , read his annnal report. This document represents the Association, du ring 'he P,,s? yar, to have been reimrkably pros perous and at the present time Its condition is very encounigiug. As much, If not more than In former years, has been done toward* promoting the spiritual and Intellectual Improvement of the members, and in active benevolence. The li brary of the Association is Increased to upward* of '2,0110 volumes. Its meetings are more largely attended, and the Mission Schools dependent on It are flourishing (Juite a number of the mem bers are stated to have removed from the city during the year, and some have been called to ?'another and a better world." Among the latter is named the first President of the Association, Alexander H. I.awrence. The sermons and lectures delivered before the Association during the year are enumerated, and the business meetings brietlv noticed The re port then proceeds with a description of the mis sion schools, and especially notices the labors of Samuel H Young, Esq., chairman of the com mittee on schools Of these schools there are four?the last one having l>een established in the hall of the Western llosehonse, in Septeinl>er last It is under the superintendence of Mr. Van Santvoord. and is represented as being espe cially prosperons for a new undertaking. An allusion is made in this part of the report to a worthy young lady, not named, who had gath ered into her own residence a score or so of neg lected children for the purpose of giving them religious instruction. On the establishment of the new school in the vicinity of her residenre. she transferred her scholars to It. The l>enevo lent labors of those connected with this school are also spoken very highly of. The sum of Si:tt, b-std's numerous articles of wearing apparel are stated to have been distributed by the teachers among the poor and destitute. The next subject alluded to Is the arrangement made for extending relief to the poor. In this work the Association has co-operated with the Vounsr Catholic's Friend Society and the Indies Vnlon Benevolent Society. Various other mat ters pertaining to the objects and lalnus of the Association are briefly noticed and the Presi dent then lakes tip the matter of finances. Al though several hundred dollars in debt at the commencement of the year, it appears that those liabilities have lieen fully discharged, and there is now a surplus in the treasury. The report clones with an earnest exhortation to the members to press onward in the work of doing good. The report of the Treasurer, Wm. Chauncy Lnngdon. Ksq.. was neit read- From this it appears that the rcceipt* during the year amount to #1.741 So; of which sum WUb.Jl was disbursed for the liquidation of debts incurred during the Srevious year, and SW fiOon account of expenses urlng the year ending yesterday; making to gether the sum of JM,*iH7.*?L and leaving a bal ance in tbe treasury of 345-1 71 On concluding the reading of his own and the treasurers reports, Mr. Rhees introduced the President elect, T J. Magrnder, Ksq , who de livered n brief .tnd highly appropriate address, in the course of which he avowed his own deter mination to do all in his power to promote the objects of the Association, and nrgen his fellow members to unite heartily in the performance of the duties assigned them. He then introduced the Rev. T. L. Cuyler, of New York, who delivered an eloquent and im firessive discourse He remarked, in coinmenc ng that he was riirht glad to have the opportu nity of being in Washington to-night; indeed, one of the reasons of his coming here was to be present at this anniversary?not that he came ex pressly for the purpose of making a speech, but he was anxious to tell his hearers in a few words why he loves Young Men's Christian Associa tions. He loves them because he has laltored for them. He asked. Is there any one here who has labored especially for any object ? if so. do they not love that object devotedly? Ask any mother which of her children she loves most, and will she not answer, the child which lsoften est sick ? It is for that she toils and labors most, and therefore she loves it to a greater degree. So it is with him in relation to Young Men's Chris tian Associations. If any of von desire to love this association, labor for it. If you want to kill It, do not attempt to talk or write it down, but just neglect it. fine great reason why the speaker particularly loves these Associations is because of their cath olic spirit. He cannot tell, in the assemblage l?efore him. to what sects his hearers severally belong. In their labor* here they are not confined by the contracted limits prescribed by sects, but have before th'-in a more comprehensive field In bis own denominational church, a man cannot always let out his whole soul in Christian ial?or, but when he comes before such an Association as this, the restraint is removed and he feels free to express fully his emotions He did not mean to oppose denominational divisions, however, for he I relieves theui requisite for the general welfare of the Church; yet the facilities which these As sociations afford for bringing in contact young men from different sects are calculated to be highly beneficial, inasmuch as they remove whatever harshness may grow out of sectarian ism. The speaker next proceeded to point out the various methods in which these associations were capable of conferring great benefit* on the community. They are e*|?*cially calculated to l?e of advantage to yonng men who are away from home To these they open the way into religious and moral associations, and thus assist them in overcoming the temptations which may Iteset them on their entrance into a stranjje city. The reading rooms ami libraries affoid them opportunities for Passing their leisure hours in the development of their intellects, and the labors of the Association lead them to cultivate an in creased attachment for the principles of Chris tianity. The speaker made some allusirn to the asso ciations in New York city and I.ondon, and of the great benefits which their orgtxnintions were Ixntowiug upon the young men of those cities. He expressed bis coiiviction that Young Men's Christian Associations render the memlters bet ter and more active christians in the respective churches to which they may tielong. as they tend to increase their love for religion and their desire to labor for its advancement. After dwelling at some length upon this topic, he concluded with an earnest appeal to the community to support this association, and urged the meinbsrs to in creased efforts for its future prosperity. On Mr. Cuyler taking his seat, the President announced that R C. McCormick, Ksq., of New York, from whom an address was also expected, had been detained at home by urgent business matters Rev Mr. Bittinger then pronounced a benedic tion. and the congregation was dismissed. The Pcblic must keep its weather eye open for imp^ters. Yesterday a colored woman was detected, on the outskirts of the city, playing the old game of soliciting aid to bury ber child. ?>be told a piteous tale, well calculated to deceive, of her son's deaih, from injuries received by rowdies on Pennsylvania avenue, and of the corpse lying unburied in her house, in conse quence of her iuabilitv, through poverty, to buy even a rough pine coffln. She collected quite a sum but. suspicion was excited, an examination of her premise was made, and the mother was found enjoying a jolly supper, surrounded by her family, all of whom were wnburitil. to be sure, but ??onry one" was dead, or gave signs of ap proaching dissolution Tin Ciar ctT Cocrt yesterday finished going over the trial docket, and then the appeal docket was begun This docket contains some forty seven eases, and will probably occupy several days Theie are eleven appeal* granted the pres ent term, vix.

The reporjMwas accepted and referred to the ?er!?rsi> TL? Chair then introduced to the?o o?w?h . sla"Kbt?r, of Virginia, who rein irk* W'?K resolution as a basis to Ma Resolved, That, in our judgment, America in America * nUo? to the problem of Africa in He spoke of the manifest destiny of the African racej that while the people of ail nations were permitted to come to thi* country, and be on an equality with the people to whom they came, l^re t M "naI^ ?Ck """" of Afr>? were foiped here, to be used after a proper course of disc I p 1 ?.Hr ro.mff1M a?d christianizing tlitir countryman of lienighted Africa. He , L *bievemeiit of the American Colo nization Society to thi* end, and of the fact that it* influence had exterminated the slave trade from more thin five hundred miles of Afrfean sea coast. He spoke most ably and eloquently for half an hour. ' The Chair then introduced the Rev. TI.oh J Bowen to the meeting The speaker had spent several years in Africa, in explorations of its sur face and Its convenient openings for colonization. Africa w;?* a home for Ibe oppressed, and an asy lum for those who had i?een taught to appreciate the l??*n< tjtk of civilization by a discipline in this country |t was evident, from the course of events, that God designed, by placing Africa in America, to transplant and forni American senti ments and institutions in Africa. lu regard to the civilization of the African race, a great work had already been done. The slave trade was the most disastrous Influence against which the Society had to contend. The speaker had seen as many as eighteen pop ulous Ah can towns on the slave coast depopul ated entirely in a short space of time by this traffic. But the influence of the missionaries was beginning to be felt far back in the interior of the country; the minds of the whole nation was beginning to be changed, and those benight ed were beginning to feel the benefit* of civifiza iou. rhere was great hope of success in giving then, the blessing of the Christian Gospel. In the hnglish settlement of Freetown, there was : |ready twenty-three Christian churches estab lished and in flourishing condition. If the mind of Africa was improved and strengthened by education and religion, its com merce and its influence would be great indeed in course of time. * lie was anxious to have a colony planted in in ^ urobo, for ir that portion of the country were ever to became civilized, the advantage- to trade b?twcen that and Liberia would be immense. Jbe gold Melds of Central Africa were live hun dred mile* in extent, and the wealth of these mines, whirl, was immense, would, were that portion of Africa to become civilized, be wat lrt'r'.',n a'd in the es ablishment of the future empire of that great country. On concluding, he was followed bv Rev Dr Seys, the Society's agent n Africa for several years past. Hi* brief remarks were depictive of the progress and success of the Society in Liberia and other portion* of the country He had planted the colony at Caievsville, some miles hack In the interior from Liberia. He had explored the bill country, and brought home specimens of the iron ore and cotton of the country through which he had explored. He gave most encouraging and hopeful accounts of the success of the new colony of Careysville; a church bad been erected there In less than three months from the time the col' ony was first planted; all of which was carrying out the great schemeof transfering Africa back to her own home, to the glory of society and of the great Creator. The colony did not starve: on the contrary, they were fed sumptuously three times a day, on venison <for the rorests abounded in oeautiful deer of various varieties) and sheep meat and beef, and on every kind of fruit and vegetable indigenous to a tropical clime. Resolutions of thanks were passed to Rev Dr Seys for his eminent services in planting perma nently the settlement at Careysville, and for his useful labors in the cause of African coloniza (ion. A resolution of thanks was passed to David Hunt, E*q., of Mississippi, for generous dona tion of $l3.UiO to the Society last year. The Society then adjourned to meet at the City Hall at 12 o'clock m. to-day. Piik I i bmc Schools.?The subjoined memo rijl is "ow circulating in the city for signatures : To the Honorable the Senate nm! House of Represrmtatires of the Vniteri Stales in Cone rets assembler! : The undersigned, citizens of Wash ington. beg leave most respectfully to call the at tention of your honorable bodies to the present condition and future prospects of the public school* in our city. That the cause of public education'demands the serious consideration of Congress the follow ing farts wi I <how : First?The Prevent System. The existing system of public schools was es tablished in Hlo, and has done all that could be expected from It. I'here are now four school districts, embracing thirty-two schools, employing forty teachers, and giving instruction to two thousand four huudred children. Five school houses are owned by the city, the remaining schools occupying basement* of ? 'uurche* and such 'jth.r places as the trustees with their limited means can procure. S'-roii'l?The S'nti <tin of tit* Census of KIT. A census of the children l>etween the ages of live and eighteen, has been recently taken bv the authority of the city, and the following fects are obtained therefrom : I. Th* number of children between the ago* o. five and eighteen, is ten thousand six hundred and ninety-seven. ?2 Three thousand tli-ee hundred and twenty e,Kht of this number are in Private Schools. 3 Two thousand four hundred are iu Public 4 Five thousand and sixty-nine are in no school Qt ill 1 . 5. The Public Schools cannot accommodate twenty-five per rem of the number of children of the citv. The simple statement of the alcove facts, care fully ascei tained, sends its warning voice through all ranks of society, foretelling with unerrin" certainty the black catalogue of crime which ig norance will surely bring on this city as the thou sands of uneducated youth develop into man hood Third? Means. From our peculiar position and relation to the .National Govwninent we are curtailed in our means. I. IVe have no commercial or manufacturing relations. More than three-fourths of the citizens are directly or indirectly dependent on Govern ment, and with the change of every administra tion there i* a change of a large class of citizen*, destroying any permanent interest in our Public School*.
