Last Nioht?Mr Williams delivered bla tecond lecture at the Smltbaonlan last night, on China and Japea. He eoafined bis remarks to tbe civilization of Chlaa. Its products, and national characteristics. China bad been twice nhdued by barbarians like tbe Gotbs snd Van dali, bat she had each time overcome her con querors and resumed her station as an Independent nation. The reason why the Chinese are treated with such contumely, especially In this country, ts that the minds of the civilised world have been prejudiced against them by reading the false re ports of travelers who really knew very little of the Chinese at all It la very seldom that a foreigner learns the Chinese language. It It gen erally the case that the Chinese pick up what Kngllsh they can, and those foreigners who have intercourse with them converse in their own lan guage, thua rendering it very difficult to obtain any correct idea nf their peculiarities, and being Ignorant of their language the views set forth by roost writers are extremely superficial The Chi nese are very uncleanly In their persons, their bouses, snd their streets, and are cruel and vin dictive when Injured. Yet they have cultivated the arts of peace to the almost otter neglect of thoae of war. and military officer* are far below elvll officers in their rank and estimation of the ppulatlon of Chins is about 360,000,000. They iffve records ?f n census taken in the fl st century of the Christian era In the sixth century their population was about fifty or sixty millions. This population is divided over a territory of 1 ,UUO,COO sqnare miles, and comprises many differ ent customs and usages Great respect is paid to women Her influence la as high aa in any Chris* tian nation, and there are books held In high es teem written by a before Christ. Polyg amy is practised but very little, and there la do such thing as fl st and second wives. Persons often betrothed when not more than six months eld, and frequently never see each other until after marriage. The women do not wear veil* aa in other parts of Asia, but walk about the streets vhii ?cry iiiuuu a* iufy ao in our own coun* try. Th* members of a family all eat at tbc Mine table, and their Intercourse among friends ai.d re lations is perfectly free and unrestrained. Gam blioti Is practised to a great extent, hut they gamble In such a way tbat there Is nocbance for cheating. Their religion la divided into three classes?tbe livratti. the rationalist*and thebhuddlsta The: r principal products are tea, cotton, silk rice and tobacco Their < otton crop is much larger than that of tbe United States, and when the modern appliances for tta culture and weaving shall be In troduced It will exceed that of the South In quan tity and quality. Cinnamon, camphor and other apices are raised to a considerable extent, tod tbe varnlsb tree here attains t's full growth and vigor. Larue quantities of silk sre exported from China. In 1850 tbe amount was about *0.000 bales Tbe opium trade ts carried on extensively. About 11,0UQ>0W) pounds are imported into tbe country from India by tbe English annually, and sells for about 53 50 lb. Tbe lecturer explained, at great length, tbe ceremonies of marriage, of burial, of worship; tbrir manner of printing, preparing tea for mar krt, te . which our limited space will not admit of publishing.

The committee on resolutions submitted the following : W hereas It has been Intimated that armed bodies of men h tve It in contemplation to visit our city for the purpose of committing riot and disorder between this and the 4th of March next; and whereas such reports are calculated to make a wide-spread impression abroad, and have a very injurious tflVct in the present excited state of the country : Be It iberefore JUjolvtd, Tbat we, the citizens of tbe Second \Vir/4 K.--4 1? ! > * ?? vumtvcw iwjcvuci jnto a military organization, for the purpose of protecting the property of our citizens from armed invasions, come from what quarter they iray Rttolvrd.

It had now doubled Its original membership, and it was fit and proper that the c mmanding officer be a man of age, and experience enough to command the respect of the corps He therefore resigned his office of exptaln in favor of Capt.

Thl? correspondence la pub lisbed in thla morning's Inttlhgeneer. Major Weightman addressed the following note to Mayor Berret: "Fkbkcakt 1,1801. "Dkar Sis. Be pleased to send me at yoar ear. liest convenience a list of the names and resi dences of your police force for day and for night service. I f the assistance of the police should be required ?

The Mayor replies tbat be baa been requested ' In the note In the absence of any reason whatever to virtually relinquish one of the moet Important prerogatives of the Mayor's office, and in so doing to subordinate the civil authority of the city to the military power of the District. He was not sensible of tne eilstence of any legal provision which empowers a military officer, however high in rant, even In the preaence of tbe moat imminent danger to aasume command of the police, or to make requisition upon the nnyor lor 11a service; oui loai 11 is uuiversauy conceded that the military 1? required to be beta Id strict subordination to the civil authority, except when martial law has been proclaimed. W'ltb regard to the rumora of an attack upon the city, every agency at hia command bad been put into requlaltlon, but up to that moment, no evi dence of such a plot had been elicited. He de clares his entire disbelief of the existence of any combination here or elsewhere to interfere with the operation of the iawa In the District of Co lumbia, and expresses his confidence in being able te vindicate the lawa through the agency of tqe present police force. Gen Weightman replies that the Mayor haa misunderstood the nat-ve of hia request.

To which the Mayor replies, insisting that the language and tone ot the letter of Gen. \V. justified the in ference he hod deduced from ft. He informs Gen Weightman that while he should not hesi tate to detail at hia request as a private citizen any number of the police that might be deemed ne cessary for the protection of property or to enforce the laws, he could not consent to furnish him in bis military character with the Information re quested, believing that the principle which re quires the military to be kept in strict subordina tion to the civil authorities, would not be the less violated by placing under his command any por tion Instead of the whole of the police force. a nm j BAva vu.itk^tios. ? i werasy, wr.
