There were about 3800 persons assembled at lOo'olock in the Tabsrnacle, yesterday morning, to celebrate the anniversary of this valuable society. Of these at least 4000 were females. As usual, most of theclergymen who were to occupy a ats on the platform, came in late, disturb, el the meeting, and made such a noise in teaching their seats, that it was very difficult to hear a single word of the annual report. Hon. T. FaiTLiifUHuviKn took thechair and organizod the meeting. The Rev. Mr. Pomeroy delivered a beauti* ful and appropriate prayer. The reports were then read from which it appears, that tho society have oollected during the last year (00,440 63. This is more than they collected last year. They have expended (16,000 in sending tracts to foreign lands. They have expended (14,460 in d:s.ributing tracts throughout this country. Over 19,000,000 of pages ot printed matter have been circulated during the last year in this ountry ; andofthis over 6,000,000 have been circulated in this country by Colporteurs connected with the society, on the French system. And the total number of pages of religious works circulated during the past year have been 80,906,600 ; making a total of 167,480 volumes. The report went on to state that the great struggle hereafter would be, between the Catholic and Protestant religions. This would be the last struggle. And this country would be the great theatre of the contost. The great Western part of the United States would be the field of Waterloo in this matter : here the Catholic and Protestant powers have to meet at last, and fight the last great battle tor religious supremacy, and the contest will be a bloody ene ; and the artillery of the press, and the cavalry corps of Protestant Colporteurs will ultimately be the means of putting down the power of the Pope ol Home forever in this land. (Applause.) In order to effect this, tho Society havo engaged as Col. Erteurs, Methodists, Baptists, Fresbyterians, Lutherans, uscopalians, and every denomination of Protestant Christians. The Rev. Mr. Hoisixotoiv, seven years principal of tho Missionary Seminary in Ceylon, rose to offer the following :? Resolved, That a well-directad Chriatian Press ia an invaluable aid to the living teacher in nominally chriatian and pagan countriea ; especially In (urniahing material ior thought to heathen minds, in instructing the young, in training up native teachers and assistants in evangel, ical labors by the way-side, from house to house and on missionary tours, and in giving permanency to the influence of the Gospel. He said without the press religion cannot be properly promulgated abroad. India lies in darkness and the shadow of death. True, she has much of the learning of England, but it is not accompanied with her religion.? The press can disseminate the latter in a most rapid and wonderful manner if it is placed in the hands of tne missionary. The presa ia a great labor-saving pewer, and therefore ought to be used particularly in India, where, although the missionary may stand the suaamer's heat, and the rainy season, for a time, yet ultimately he must sink under the toil, if unsustained by the press. The Rev. Mr. Kincaid, who has seen thirteen years a Missionary in the Burman Empire, then rose and said? The efforts of the Society had been greatly blessed in the Birman Empire. He had before him a few tracts printed in the Burmese language, by nreaaes established on the Banks of the Rangoon and Irra Waddv Rivers. With these as his only friends he had often been in Burmah during the last twelve years, 600and 700 miles from any Christian or civilized family. These wero given him by the charity of the American Tract Society. He had distributed 2,000,000 pages of these in every hamlet and village of the Birman Empire ; and by them many had been converted to God ; from the mouth of the Irra Waddy to the Hill of the Mountains in Central Asia, over 1000 miles. He gave but one tract to 100 that applied for them. People asked if the money spent in distributing tracts was not thrown away. He could show it was not. A Missionary could not talk with one man for days and weeks, but he cauld give a tract, and that would convert thousands. Thousands had read his small tracts and brought them back to exchange them for larger onoa until they were able to read the New Testament. One tract was worth fifteen fellow missionary laborers in that field The first male Convert in Ava was brought to a knowledge of the truth as it ia in Jesus, by readings single tract; and he became a fellow laborer of mine in the work of the Lord; and though he was a gentleman he often carried a bundle of tracts on his back for twenty miles. Again, a sob of one of the mighty chiefs of the mountains was converted by a single tract He would not read. They had no written language till the Missionaries came amongst them. This chief's son came to Rangoon, a distance of 350 miles trom his own home. A missionary's wife taught him to read ; and in 49 hours he read the tract through. He was allecstacy. He wanted to take a lot oftracta home to the mountains. He filled a basket two-thirds fall of tracts, covered them with plaintain leaves, put sugar on the top of them, and so reached the gates of Ava. The officer at the gates searched the basket, found the books, and the noble chief's sen was condemned to be a Pagoda slave ; the worst kind of slavery ; for it is perpetual. At the intercession of the Mission anes, hi last ne was reieaseu ; nui ne was determined to have tho books; and he smuggled a basket full on bis hack out of Ava, and reached bis homo in the mountains, 300 miles off He preached the gospel there, and converted thousands to Christ. He was a man of influence, the people flocked from all parts of the country to hear him. And in one year 1000 natives were baptized in Arracan, as converts to the Lord. And all this was done by one little tract! That tract cost ons cent I Oh! whose cent was that 7 It was given in this city ! Who gave it 1 He who sittcth in Heaven alone can tell. Perhaps it was the wido w's mite. But, oh, it has saved hundreds of souls from the power of Satan < Who, then, will say after this, what is the use of distributing tracts 7 May the Lord bless the labors of the society te the full conversion of the Heathen. Amen! ., Dr Scoddsbi for twenty years a Missionary in South? rn India, next addressed tne meeting. He said he loved the Tract cause for the great good it had done at home and abroad. What a glorious company of souls it had in. troduced into the Kingdom of God ! In India there was a literature ot the most licentious nature. Its influence was seen every where. That assembly would be so shocked if he would recite the songs sung in the temples of India that hundreds would start from their seats in disgust. In this country,although the press was licentious enough, there was too much of the savor of heaven in the land to allow of its universal influence. But in India it was not so. The land was saturated with the literature of the Devil. The living preacher could not so effectually atrm that destructive torrent, as the printed page. It taught again and again, and not unfrequontly its glorious effects had been seen. And here [holding up a wooden God] is one of the Dagens which have fallen before the literature of the Bible. He naver went into the highways and byways without the publications of that Society. He always took his small arms with him- It was the great desideratum in India to get the people to think, and tracts were a great means ot doing so. Dr. 8- dwelt at length on the importance of educating the youth of Pagan lands. He had distributed probably 100,000 tracts. He had often made an extensive tour for the purpose of distributing them. He chosen some convenient place where-the people could ceme to him. In large cities he was surrounded by immense crowds, and the "native helper" examined how many could read. He himself meanwhile occupied himself in addressing himself to the souls of the people.? [Dr. 8. here gave a specimen of the songs sung by him to the Hindoos, bv which their attention was aroused to his teachings.] Dr. 8. went on to relate several interest *ij? aurouuiQs uiuaiiBiivn ui mo urucucmi CUCtll UI tile circulation ef Tract* in India. The following hymn waa then rang by the choir and the audience EXCELLENCE OF CHRI8T.

The Rsw. Dr. Nbvin, President of the Theological Seminary of the Oerman Reformed Church, Msrcersburgb, I'a., next addressed the meeting. He moved the following resolution * That the Emigrant Oerman population of this country. rapidly expanding in every direction, form* a moat inter eating field for miaaionary action ; a field eminently open to agencies employed by thil Society, and to which God ia challenging the earneat regarda of the American chur

chea. The Doctor waa rather proay, and was heard with a good deal of nneaaineaa. The ladiea chatted, and criticiaed the young preacheraou the platform, and madovery pretty servicable fan* out of the large handbill* containing the programme of the proceeding*. No people, aaid Dr. N., were more deep, apiiitual and profound than the German*. They were not to be judged by their rough exterior. They were spiritual even to myatiriam. I'hen, again, the German mind waa ao plaa tic. There waa no nobler field than that preaented by the German population of thia country for the exerciao of the anergic* of that aoclety. The Re v. Dr. LvMt* Bracxca movid the laat resolution .which wa?: ? That in the present conflict of spiritual religion with formalism and lnfldelitr, the rpeaa muat not be left to the control of the enemy, but it* power muat be wielded in achieving and perpetuating the conquests of truth. TheJ resolution waa so plain, he said,that itnecded no argument to enforce It. When he looked at what waa doing for religion by the pre?R, he wondered that the devil did not deapair, and give up hia bnalneas a* a bad job (Laughter.) He spoke of the Tract Society aa one etni nantly calculated to break down sectarian prejudice*,and enlist Christiana of all denomination* in tne great work of the conversion of the world[Here, the Reverend Mr. Kiax, who had been standing m one (?( the aisle*, which waa quite too obscure a posi I Sgg IRK I MORNING, MAY 11, 184 ion, found bii way past the reporlera' table,and rot up on the platform. He was elegantly dressed in fasnlonably made auit of black, and with a beautifully arranged white neckcloth. Aa ooon aa the Reverend gentleman made hia appearance on the platform, where he atood with hia arma folded, and his head gracefully leaning againat one of the pillars, quite a aeniation was created amongst the female portion of the audience in the neighborhood of the roatrum. "Ah! there is Mr. Kirk." "Oh.whereP* "Ah! it is the dear creature!" "Aint he handsome?" and auch like exclamations, were heard whispered around.] Dr. BaacHae went on to speak of the vast mportance oi circulating tracts amongst the Oerman and Irish Catholic population; the prospecta were already moat encou. raging. There were tokens of the kindling of a Are that no pupal power could quench. The Doxology was then sung, a bcndiction pronounced, and the meeting dispersed. American Home Missionary Society. The anniversary of this society took place at the Tabernacle list evening. The audience waa rather thin compared with some of the meetings, owing probably to the unfavorable state of the weather. The chair was occupied by Henry Dwight, Esq, the President The Treasurer's report was read by JaSfxa Coxnino, Esq. The total receipts during the last year had bean tlO0,6M. The Rev. Milton Badder read tha report ol the Executive Committee, of which the following ia a condensed abstract The number of ministers of the Gospel in tho employment of the Society, during the year, haa been 848. Of these, 613 were in commission at the time of the last anniveraary, and J-ii have since been appointed. During a greater or less portion of the yeer, the Gospel has been preache<l by the missionaries to 1,047 congregations and missionary districts. These laborers have been distributed in twenty-four states and territories of the Union, and in Canada and Texas. By comparing theaa statements with the la?t Annual Rennrt. it will be seen that there have been imnortant ad vances in the good accomplished by the Society. It hu had in commission 57 more missionaries than in any other year of its eiistence. These hare labored in 60 more fields, and 03 years of labor have been performed more than in the 13 previous months. Another fact, which rereals the policy of the Committee, is that 64 more laborers than in aDv former year, have been stationed in the great valley of the West, towards which our increasing population is forcing its way, with an impetus which no temporal embarrassments have had power to check. In Wisconsin, Iowa and Missouri, alone, the appointments were 27 more than in the previous year. When it is remembered, that a mighty struggle for the possession of that rising empire is drawing nigh, and that Romanism and Infidelity are there concentrating their hosts for the coming conflict, the increase of missionary laborers in that part of our country, is a matter of special congratulation. The number of pupils in Sabbath Schools and Bible classes is not far from 68,400. Encouragement ef important aid in this department is held out to the missionaries by the liberal otter from the American S. 8. Union, and the Massachusetts S. S. Society, of gratuitous appropriations for libraries. < The impulse communicated to the cause of temperance during the previous year, has extended its influence into the last Tne Committee are especially gratified to learn from the statements of the missionaries, that among the thousands who so suddenly assumed the vow of total abstinence from intoxicating drinks, the cases of apostacy are exceedingly rare. The numbsr of persons thus pledged, in the communities connected with our missions, is not far from 146,000. The productiveness of funds invested in the Home Missionary cause, continues to be seen in the returns which are annually made to the treasury of benevolence, from the fields on which they are expended. In 308 of those fields, the aggregate of charitable collections is $13,000? being about 40 per cent, on the sum appropriated to them. Rrvivals and Additions to tub Crdbchbs.?Two hundred and thirty-three of the churches have shared in these effusions, and 6,858 souls have been hopefully born again. The number added to the churches on profession of their faith is about 5,853 : by letters from other churrlies, 3,870?in all, 8,338. This number is 3,709 more than the additions of the previous year, and would doubtless have been much larger, but lor the brief period which has elapsed since the revivals referred to commenced. Thi Tbsasust.?'The balance in the treasury at the last anniversary was $991 39. The subsequent receipts have been $99,813 84?making the resources of the Society for the year $100,804 13. This is $7,849 30 more than the total receipts of the year precediug. At the beginning of the year, the unpaid claims of missionaries for labor performed amounted to ars.ro* ao, ami there has sines become due to them, and for incidental expenses, the further sum of $96 038 36, making the liability ot the Society lor the year, $107,833 61. Of this sum, $98,915 11 hare been paid. To cancel the remaining $9,608 40 still duo to the mis sionaries, and towards meeting the further sum of $37,049 98 pledged for the coming year, the balance in the treasury is only $3,689 03. The Committee express the opinion that had tho business of the country been in a prosperous state, the augmented interest felt in this work, wonld hare enabled the Society to send, instead of 37, at least 100 additional laborers, into the great harrest field. For the adrancement actually k ecu red, and for the stronger purpose manifested by a portion of the community, to make this whole land Immanuel's, let derout thanks be rendered to the King of Zion ! But still, how far behind the importance ol the work, is the largest enterprise of the churches I After all that is done, how much remains undone, and eren un attempted '. what is a single hundred thousand dollars, in an undertaking to which, perhaps, millions ef souls must look for the means of theii eternal salvation ! Divided among those who should prefer Jerusalem above their chief joy, what a miserable pittance isthepiopor tion of each, to be offered on the altar of Him who gave for them his own blood. What is the annual addition of 30 or 60 missionaries towards supplying a domestic and foreign increase of pipulation of nearly throo quarters of a million, sinseour last report ! Addresses were delivered by the Rev. Mr. Little, of Indiana, the Rev. Mr. Pomroy, of Bangor, Me., and the venerable Dr. Ay mar Beecber, ol Cincinnati. There was nothing in them, however, which seemed worthy otspo rial notico. Anniversary ot tho Female Moral Reform Bo*lety. The meeting ol this Sociaty this year, may be considei ed a decided failure. The night was gloomy and wet; thechnrch in Oreen street was cold and dimly lighted : there were not over 150 persons present, and the'whole affair went off as cheerless and miserablv as its worst en. emies could deair?. There were not over a dozen men prevent, beaidei thoie on the platrorm, and of these latter there were only four; among them|was Lewia Tappan. Two or three clergymen, a* usual, came in behind time and made a great deal of Doise in reaching the platform. Alter a long and curious pause, Lewii Tappan roae and nominated Capt. Eaton of thoU. S. Army as Chairman. He accepted it. Some tall man then rose and said, " There will now be singing by the choir." The young girl* in the choir sang a hymn very beautifully. Lewis Tappan then rose and said he should read several letters from clergymen who could not attend. All had some excuse or other, and one from Troy told his dear sisters to go on until there should be no infractions of the 7th commandment found in the land. Lewis Tappan read the 9th annual report. The Society has issued 34,000 papers every month, and 13,000,000 pages of trscts against the violation of the 7th commandment.| The auxiliary societies are doing much. The Society felt grateful to Ood that at last the eyes of the Legislature re opened to the importance of this subject, and that a report has been made directing a punishment to be inflicted on all who are guilty of adultery and seduction. 14,000 petitions have been sent to the N. Y. Legislature this year- Many sailors have been converted to cnastitv, and at least 130 destitute females reclaimed from the paths ol pollution and impurity. The Reportwent on to say that tne Society rejoiced with exceeding Joy to find that the newspapers were all coming out in lavor of criminal punishment lor seducers, brought about by the Hebarton case. Rur. Mr. F.tsrts moved a resolution:? Resolved, That discriminate exposure is the foundation of all reform, commended alike by reason and rt relation. He said?ho did not mean such exposure as was seen in novels, which showed the arts ol the seducer and the ways of vice, without arming the virtuous (amalea against vice and pollution. He condemned the mode of exposing KkUlerr an,! seduction adopted by the secular press generally j also ths flippant exposure in lashionabla salons, as the story of the last Den Juan came on the lapit. These only made matters worse?they made the young female so lamitiar with this vice, that as the poet said, she first endured, then pitied, and then embraced.

(Amen, cried several) If there are (aa we know there are) salaried ngents, looking roipectablo, going through this city and country looking out far young girls to be seduced, let their names be published. All concealment is idle on this subject. Those whom a knowledge of this subject would injure, already know it. Fastidious people are hocked at the disclosures made in the Advocate of Moral Relnrm, and yet load down (heir tables with the licentious novels 01 the present day that show all the ways of seduction in an attractive lorm. Who would not rather be robbed of all their property lhan have their wife, sis tcr, or daughtor polluted?

The congregation, assembled yesterday afternoon at thia exhibition of tho blind, was immense. The ladies infinitely outnumbered the gentlemen, showing where the sympathies of human nature are established. The number oi pupils assembled was about seventy-Are, 41 males and 33 females. The performances came of according to the following programme:? i'art i. I. Music?" Institution March," by the Band. 3 Eiaminationof Pupils in Reading, 3. Solo, Piano, Var?" Nid Noddin," 4.

The " Band" performed with the usual instruments, and their music was not blind if the performers were. The questions in geography, arithmetic, Ac. were answered with promptness, aad accuracy, and gave evidence of great skill on the partef the teaehen, and attention and intelligence on the part of the pupils. We saw no difference in their answers Irom those of scholars who caa see, and wn nreatima the nunils themselves can aee none. The various methods of teaching geography, geometry, Jtc. by means of raised lines were exhibited to the audience, and gave very great satisfaction. The Italian air, (No. 0) was performed by Miss Ann Smith ; aha is the leader of the orchestra in Dr. Sebra's Church, corner of Prince and Thompson streets. Charles Coe, who played thepiano in this piece is the organist in the same church. We are informed by the instructors that there are several of the pupils who are fully prepared and competent to act as organist in any church, and are onljl waiting for situations. The churches should remember this fact. Tho Poetical Addresa(No 10) was spoken by Miss Francos J. Crosbv. She delivered it with great modesty and propriety. We are informed that she has a great deal of poetic talent, and writes poetry with much facility. The address is as follows THE BLIND GIRL'S ADDRESS. They tell us of the starry train, That sparkles in yon sky of blue; Wlim, geutly, o'er the verdant plain, Mild ev'ning sheds its pensive hue; And of the glorious orb of day, That 'fumes the spacious earth we tread; But vain, alas' its golden ray Upon our sightless eyes is shed ! They tell us of the landscape fair, The gushing fount, the pleasant shade; Of spring's young flow'rs that blossom there, In nature's lovely garb array'd. The smile that decks the human face, The brilliant eye, the Joyous brow, Are beauties we may never trace! A ray less midnight shrouds us now! J But why, ah why, the falling tear1 Why heaves the sad, unbidden sigh? Tho lamp of knowledge, bright and fair, Pours lustre on our mental eye. And, oh! religion's heav*nly ray, Our bosom lights with sacred love; And bids us look from earth away, To an eternal world above. J To us, oar Father hath denied The blessings He on you bestows; Yet sweetly now our moments glide, He gives us friends to soothe our woes. And tho' we never can express, The gratitude to you we owe, God, your benevolence will bless, And bis approving smile bestow. Between the parts, Dr. Adams exhibited various specimens of articles manufactured by the pupils, such as hand-boxes, and other paste board work, baskets, and other willow ware, rugs, mats, ho , were to be seen on the stage, and mar be purchased at the Institution, in 0th Avenue, between Md and 34th streets, and at 173 Front street, up stairs. The specimens we saw were all wall executed, and admirably illuitrated the ikill ofbothteachenand pupili. On the whole, the exhibition gave very great aatirfaction. Meeting of the Hew York < olonlaatlon Society, at the Dutch Reformed Church, Corner of Fourth Street and hatayette Plaee. Thia meeting waa advertised in the papers, and published upon tha card containing the programme, to be held at the Middle Dutch Church. Accordingly, at the hour appointed, we visited that church, expecting to Ond the meeting there ; but it was non ut mvtnlm. In the course of some half hour's inquiry and search, we accidentally ascertained that the place was not the Middle Dutch Church, aa advertised, but the church named at the head of this notice. The consequence of it all is, that we could not arrive at the place of meeting in season to give but a passing notice of it. The meeting was vary thinly attended, and we doubt not that great numbers, like ourselves, were prevented, from the same bad management in advertising the meeting. We arrived in season to hear the Pev. Dr. Dewitt pronovnee a very eloquent eulogium upon the late and venerable Dr. Proudnt, who devoted some of the best years of his lile to the cause of Colonization. He was eminently a man ol prayer. The last time be was in theoity, it was in reference to Colonization. His death was calm and he gase his parting benediction to thia society. Dr. De. witt read a letter from Dr. Woods, Theological Professor at Andover, Massachusetts, in which Dr. Proudflt was spoken of in the most affecting terms. Also a similar latter from Dr. Miller, of Princeton Theological Seminary. The Rev. Mr. Kknnbdv, from Wilmington, then addressed the meeting upon a resolution which expressed the si ntiment that the beneficial influence of colonization upon the colored man,and particularly as respects Africa, is daily becoming more powerful and evident. He spoke in high term* of the colonization scheme, and thought in pite ol all the prejudice existing against it, that ft we* deatined ultimately to rid thi* country of slavery. lie proceeded to take a pretty wide and a aomewhat hiatorical viewofthe whole subject. In the course of his remarks he touched upon British emancipation in the West Indies, the state of slavery in Virginia in I77'J, and soon down to thi* present day. He was perfectly convinced that emancipation must take place in this country of all that are enalaved. He said that it had been objected that this was a tardy scheme. In answer to this, he referr-d to his own church in the lovely town of Wilmington. In seventy six years it had had forty-two minister*, end had now but seven hundred membera. Was not thta tardy 7 But waa it not a good scheme nevertheless 7 Another objection was, that the colored people were reluctant to colonize. We did not distinctly understand Mr. Kennedy'a answer to the objection, hut he evidently thought thin reluctance might be ovi rvcmo. He concluded with the recitation of a piece of poetry. Johv Thomviois, Esq , from Poughkeepaie, followed He commenced his remarks with another eloquent tribute of praise to the lato Secretary of thta Society (Dr. Trowltlt.) He then expatiated upon the wide and impassable gulf which exists between the two races ot black and white. He came down varr strong upon the Abolitionists, and especially upon flippant foreigners who came bote With their note books to apeak and write lies about ... n?r..i?.l ik.im?,i..i.,. -1 to no parly,and daanised by all?(cheers.) Soma of the old fashioned arguments upon the subject were hero introduced, familiar to all readers. Such lor example a? that Colonisation ii to be the great means of Christianising benighted Africa. WlthTheae remarks Mr. Thotnp! sod seconded lha leaolution. Mr. OuaLCT, from Washington, was then called upon to offer a raaolutiou and adiTrees the meeting. He called attention to the great leading festuro of this Society, which ia that its schema is National, and appeals to th? National: Treasury and to National power to give it stieceas. Mr. Ourley placed thia Society upon the i LD. Prle* Two C?aU, ante tooting with the Bible, Treot, M ia?ion ary~and other aimilar Societies; and like those societies it did not feel called upon to go in for the abolition of slavery. Nor was this society to he opposed on this ground any more than either of those other societies. He claimed that colonisationists were as much opposed to slavery as any class of the community. Nor would they be opposed to the Anti-slavery Society were it not also an anti-church, an anti-elergy, and an anti all-order and good-morals society, throwing every thing Into disorder and confusion. Mr. Ourly then made some remarks upon the slave trade, the late treaty, the right of search, lie. lie. lie , but there was nothing new in bis remarks. At the close of his address he alluded to the lact. with shame and rsgrtt, that the single small State of Connecticut had, during the past year, given $40,000 (ami from rongregationalists. too, alone) to the American Board of Commissioners lor Foreign Missions; while the whole United States together had, in the same period, given less than *80,001). The resolution w hi seconded by Col. Stone, who made some very "old-maidish" remarks for which ha got dnly laughed at. It was ten o'clock when be began tespeek* He was only invited to second the resolution, and ho pre. misedwhenhe began to say nothing- but in bis nsual pompom egotistical style he went on and detained the audience for a whole half hour, in the profusion ofhiseloquenoe, he spoke of Abhv Kelly, and William Lloyd Gar rison, and said that Mr. Oerrum was asm litd to liriyfM strings, lifts a fin canniitar to a dug's tail. The meeting immedietelr adjourned. Antl-Havsry Contention?White Sievee? Colored Speech-Salt and Pepper, Ale. The Anti-Slavery Convention for the Eastern District of thia Stats, was held last evening in the Free Congregar tional Church at the corner of Chriatie and Delaacey atresia. The hour was Axed at 7 o'clock, but that af came be1 ore business was commenced. During this delay, the church was about one-fourth filled, and a glance at tha assembled congregation of black and white, resembled the salt and pepper be* of an oyster etand. Bat few of the denomination of Friends were proaent, but few handsome girls,and fewer handaome women?still the audience ap. peared very reapectable, very attentive, very devout and very zealous. A few minutes before 8 o'clock, a little abort nervous man with a prominent forehead and a very large cloak, ascended the Speaker's rostrum, whom we afterwards ascertained to be brother Brown from Albany, one of the Secretaries of the Society. Immediately after, a shrewd grizzle-eye'd colored gentleman dreased in iron grey with black trimming, also mounted the speaker's stand. Brother Baown then rose and stated that this meeting was called at the recommendation of the Anti-Slavery Society, at their annual meeting week before last. That as the President of the Society was absent at his residence in Washington county, he hoped that Horace Dresser, one of the Vice Presidents, whom he saw present, would take the Chair. Heaaca Dressbs. with his blue specs and gold medal watch seal, than ascended the rostrum, and Brother Brown said that aa he waa the only secretary, he hoped that an assistant would be appointed. Mr. Wm. Oiobs was nominated, but declined to serve. Mr. Whitney ditto, and said ditto. At last Mr. S. W. Benedict was chosen, and took his seat. Dbesskr?I will inquire who is the pastor of this church t?and il he is present, I should like to see him. The Rev. Mr. Joteliis here came forward, and being introduced to the audience, commenced the business or the meeting wl h a short and very sensible address to the Throne of Grace. Dresses.?Ladies and gentlemen,I will now present to you a whiteslave?(considerable sensation and murmur, ings of "a real one, eh,")?yes, ladies, a white slave, as was announced in the notice of the meeting. Here a little boy aged about four years, dressed in grey clothes, was brought forward and placed on the stage, where lie appeared highly tickled with his elevation. His hair was flaxen and straight, and his skin as white as most white children. Bt other Baown here said that he was not prepared to give the boy's name, but he would state that he had been recently bought et Apalachicoia, Florida, for MO, by a gentleman who had sent him here to the care of a third person, who would give his history te.morrow evening. "The boy," said he, "is as white as I am,and I have a hoy about the same size and age, end from this specimen, gentlemen and ladiea, you can judge whether they have any white slaves at the south or not? Voice?Put him up on the table, so we can see him. Biawn?Yes, I will put him up, end you will then see tbuthe has not more than one-eighth.or perhaps one fourth of the African Mood in him. Wo think hie mother was dsrk, as he asked a colored woman the other day if she was white, and when she said ' No," then, says he,M My mother wmm not white." (f.Rtighter.) Yes, gentlemen, and ladies, this is not the oulv evidence of white alavne having been sold in the south. The same gcntkBU who bought thia boy say* these thinga are common, and they had the additional evidence of Mr. Clark, of Brooklyn who relate* an instance ot an Irishman (laughter)? yea, an Irishman, whoae parents bad died when he waa yeung, and who waa alterwarda aold in alavery, and kept is bondage far years. Diisiit?Ladiea and gentlemen, I will now introduce to you a southern gentleman?a distinguished southern gentleman, but who, unlike some others, is a southern gentleman with northern principle*. (Laughter and applause.) Here arose the shrewd, cunning looking colored man with grey clothes and black trimmings, with that sort of a peculiar beck that betokened he had been well trained for his present profession. Coioasn Otnrusis- Mr. Chairman, you must not expect any thing more from me than you would from any other man who had been in bondage for forty years?not any more than from one who has been robbed of all his imaginary right*, of father, mother, aiater, brother, and without the knowledge ef a Bible or the benefit of a school. Slavery i* not as is represented even by abolitionists?you must tee it with your own eyes to believe it. I was raised in Maribook, near the Pawtuset river, ami all I have to *ay is that slaves there dont fare half ao well a* slave holders racing horaes or lighting chickens. (Laughter.) The fare they give ua waa e peck of corn a day, not shelled,but in oar,and a dozan herring* a week. You know what herring* i?, dont you 1 (O, yea.) Wall, on Sunday we shell and rrind our corn, and beat oar hommony, and then on Monday go te work, all that can carry a hoe or lift an axe, and when meal time comae, an old lame negio woman, with a stick, deal* out the rations, which we have to oat out doors, rain or shine?hot or cold. (" Oh,") Thia bread is made ol oern,wator and rait, baked in the aaheaand washed oil afterward*. At 0 o'clock ("ao late") when wo leave oft work, wc sometimes get a good supper, but thgt's a secret, and then when we ge to oed, we dont go to a secret bed-room, nor a privet# corner, but all huddle in one room together, men, women end children, like so many sheep or pig* in a pen, clothes and all on, all mixed up. (Criea of oh, oh, from some of the ladies in the gallery.) On the plantation where I was raised, we had Irom 00 to 60, and sometimes 100 slaves in all?the best lookiag and most active of the men were kept to grow wheat, rye, corn and tobacco, and the finest and nicest looking wa. men to grow children for the market?(cries of "oh, awful, awful"?the same as a flock ef sheep?the wool for use and the lamb* or the butcher?(applause.) Yea.thera waa Mr. Adam* and Mr. Williams, and others of A lax an dria,and other places about the District of Columbia,wbo kept a watch on the market and when cotton and sugar went up you'd see them start off to buy young naarooa* They'd go to a plantation and all the negroes would be drivnn up into a pen and then one of these negro buy an would walk into the pen with as much impudence as the I dnwll Hanarktov) ami xlratftK nnt A wnmon'fl arm I to lee if it wu strong and even go ao far as to eiamine a colored lady's back and pat his unholy haDils on her colored body?(applause) ? He might then a?k her if she had the tooth acne, or the heed ache, and if she d.d she wouldn't dare to say yee( as one devil was feeling of her, and another devil looking at her. (Laughter.) Yes, aftd then perhaps he would ask the colored lady to open her mouth, so that you could look at her teeth, the same as yeu would at an old horsed after he had been nearly worn out. (Laughter and applause.) I said we sometimes had goad suppers, and se we did, hut that is a secret- You know the folks say South, they can't keep any thing away from the niggers. (Laughter.) Now what do the niggers takel They don'nt take clothes?they don't steal mosey?they don't break into banks?no, they dont do this?they wo* far the lash, not the cash. (Laughter). I'll tell you how they do, to now and then get a good supper. When night oomes and the overseer goes round he Ands 'em all asleep or pratendin to be like the possum or the coon, but they keen a watch and when he goes to his house and blows out tno light, they manage to get a little something extra fer sup. per,?So you see that although they keep the barn locked tight with a kev. yet the old darkee has a key of his own. ? (laughter)?Their s ables there are built up high like vour theatre stages hers, and have a room underneath ? Welljtfk* wheat lays on the ftoor. and then they take en auger end bore e hole underneath, aad down comae the wheat, and when they've got enough they ping npthe hole and go away. (Laughter ) And aa no aleve holder im konesl taker tho filler r.adilw ik. .L..S . f give him a good aha re of it, and ha neear tall* where it romo?rrom. Whore 1 lieed wo had a thousand buahala of who at a' onetima.and any quantity of corn and taoat.and the traoa fall of Turkey e at night?all our hard labor.

All they had to do waa to get a long pole and put it to the toea of the turkey, and he he would atep right on it and neeer CfT 1!'" until we got him down. (Oreat laughter.)
