Never within the memory of the oldest man has the Tabernacle been so crowded with such beauty and tashion as it was yesterday. As on the occasion of .Mr. Marshall's great speeches, many hundreds went away unable to obtain admittance; and every J seat was tilled ; and numbers had to stand in the * centre and side aisles. lj The Tract Society, always important, and consequently always well attended, seemed of added import this year ; and consequently was thus multitu - dinously attended. And such a multitude ! All the i- seats on the platform, and at the hack of the speak' eis?the orchestra seats were occupied hy clergymen ; highly intelligent and respectable, hut anything but good looking ? The body of the Taberna* cle presented a glorious scene. In the whole of that vast semi-circular area in front of the pillars, close up to the platform, there was but one man (and he old Hnd with spectacles) to be seen. It was one ? dense compact mass of women; of all ages; but chiefly young and beautiful and under 20 years of age. Wc counted no less than 7(10 straw bonnets unkroken by any thing except here ami there the black cftpe bonnet of some mourner. The first live seats all round the gallery were filled with young women, all elegantly and fashionably dressed, and many were in their seats as early as nine o'clock. Nearly every scat in the body of the building under - the galleries was also occupied by well dressed women. Light blue seemed to be the prevailing co. lor for inuslin dresses, shawls, and handkerchiefs. The heat was excessive?the rustling of fans was like the singular hum of the sails of a windmill when heard at a distance; and some few ladies were compelled to leave the place on account of the extreme heat. On the platform sat the celebrated Nestorian 1 Bishop, Mar Yohannan, who was an object of great curiosity to the ladies. lie was dressed in his na* tive continue, which was rather more unique and pisluresquc than elegant. He is a man about the middle size, apparently about 38 years of age, of a very dark olive eomplexion resembling the Arab Muscat Captain ; he wore a long black beard and black moustaehios ; the outline of his features was good, being almost jmre Grecian,with the nose slightly aquiline ; his forehead is quite low and slopes off; his perceptive faculties are very fully developed, and s his head is high but narrow, and evinces the organs t of firmness and benevolence fully developed ; the 1 top of his head is bald, nnd his hair is deep black - and wiry, like most of those resident in warmoouni tries. 1 The following was the Order of Exercises:?

Justin Perkins, Missionary to the Nestorinns of Persia ; Seconded by Rev. E.

Missionary Chant, sung by the Congregation. Moved by Rev. John M. Veck, of the Baptist Church, from the Western States; Seconded by Rev. E. N. Kirk, of New York. Resolved, That while we recognize the sacred obligation to labor for the salvation of other lands, our raqionsibilities for the evangelization of our own beloved country, areas peculiar as its relations to the world, and us solemn as the destiny of 17,000,000 souls ; end in view of the destitution of spiritual knowledge and ministerial instruction, especial!v in the newer States, and the aduptedness of the combined agency of the religious press and sanctified individual influence to the wants of the country, the Society is constrained to attempt the supply of every destitute family with its standard practical books, by sale or gift, accompanied by the prayerful labors of the friends of the Redeemer, and the untiring exertions of agents and rolporituri for the spiritual benefit of the unevangelized at their homes; and that to sustain these laliors fur the current year, allowing $10,000 for rolportruur.r, $l*,004 for or diaary domestic grants, and $30,000 for all other expenses, will require at least the sum of $10,000 for the home operations of the Society. Doxology. Benediction. Accommodations for re|<orters there were none, and when the sexton whs civilly asked if there eould not he some provided, he made use ol abusive language with respect to the reports in the "Herald," in which the want of accommodation lor reporters was alluded to, and said in a very insolent manner, that the reporters must provide accommodations for themselves. The proceedings of the meeting were commenced hy the Reverend Ur. Milner, al a few minutes past ten o'elock. lie slated that Mr. Wilder, the President of the Society, was absent, and moved thai Colonel Crosby do lake the chair, which was agreed to nein. con., and the Rev. Mr. Somera, in the absence of the Rev. Mr. M'Cane, appointed Secretary of.the meeting. The Rev. l>r. Spring wna then called upon to offer prayer, after which. Dr. Milner read a letter which had been received from S. V. S. Wilder, Esq., the President of the society, which was dated the 27th j April, 1812, and addressed to the Chairman of the Executive Committee. it alluded to the fact, that the Society was eoin|w>? (! of ind'mdual* belonging to six diflcrent denominations of christian*, and nald, that he desired there should he rotation in office, and wished that some one of nnothor denomination should be appointed in hisplaee. lie oflcred his congratulations on the successof the Society's efforts, during the seventeen yeurs it has been in existence, and concluded by the expras?ion of his hopes and good wishes for the future welfare and success of the Society. Dr. Milner, after speaking a few words with respect to the indebtedness of the Society to ATr. Wilder, moved a vote of thanks, and thnt his resignation he?though reluctantly ?accepted. Unanimously adopted. Abstracts of the Reports were read. The Chairman then announced that the Reverend IIknuy Hef.hmam t, of the Reformed I )utch Church, would address the meeting and move the adoption ol the reports. Mr. llrrsMAsi r said I hare been requested to more the adoption of the report*, abstracts of which sou hate heard read. 1 assure )on it is w ith reluctance that I consented to do thi?. because tliose who could hare done ao more ablv and ss ith more eloquence have declined. But though the influence I may have, msy lie hut small, what I can do I will do with n hearty good * ill. I have been led to examine and look into this subject from the fact or my having labored for nearly a year in extending it* influence. Allow me to assert that this causewill bear examination The character and standing of taose managing it* affairs? the economy of expenditure on thote publication* which have been issued?the happy saving influence it has c*. tried and commands over the Christian'* heart. It enjoy a the confidence of the christian public. Thu I hare had opportunity to ascertain. Beggars, you nil know, are not the most acceptable guest* The agent* are usually elas*. ed among that honorable fraternity. I have received the i movt cheerful greetings, 'he most fixed attention, sad still [ more convincing testimony- that most Cheering to the , agent*' heart?the solid rash. Not, air, l>ocau?ca* agents W YC \rEW YORK, THURSDA" we railed for tokens of theii fnror, but bccau-.c of the 1 lersst and \ alue they fool for the cause. Let mo dirt your attention for a little \vhile to the \ uslncss of tho cou try ? hich our operations embrace. It embrace*the who Heathen World. I love to dwell on the thoughts of tl Heathen World. It rouses feeling* of pleasing sadness my heart. To survey the depth of degradation and wic 1 edness to which they havofullon, tills my heart with su urss. That man, man created in the image of (led, shott degrade himself below the let el of the reptile that craw on the dust beneath his feet, that in the darkness of gu l he should he hastening to the judgement seat of t'hrii fills my heart \v ith sadness. Vet he is our brother at may be brought up from this horrible depth, from th miry grave, and may be led to put his foot on the rock Salvation and his mouth may be filled with praise toot God. There is such a voMness of extent, variety of in terial, and certainty of ultimate success that excites us greater exertions. The man now worshipping his God w ood and stone may be led to hrav en. and to bow with ho] reverence before the throne of infinite purity. He, uow slave to immorality and vice, may put on the white rol and wear tin crown of unfading glory. 'The America Tract Society bears no small part in the "labors which wi eventuate in these results. The labors of the( hristin press spreads tin- know lodge of Christ over the whol earth. 1 will just give a few reasons why we shoul itipport this institution in its lulwn s among the Heathei lat. We should sustain it because the heathen need th tractf. Our missionaries cannot |>ersoually preach th principles of the Gospel to all the heathen. They ca impart them personally but to very few. Look at the he: then |*>|.ulatio? of the w orld ; it contains tiOO millions < immortal beings. All the Christian missionaries are but few hundreds. We do not know the exact number, bi suppose they amount totiliO. If these were cqunlly distr buted they would moke but one missionary to every mi lion of the heathen, luthis land at home, w hen wu hov not the ignorance or prejudices of the heathen to conten with?one minister to everv thousand is thought but littl enough, and with all the hindrances and discouragement presented by heathenism,look atlhe vast disproportion till is to a million. Can oua missionary personally impart tli Gospel to that vast multitude? What would you think you had but one minister of tly (iospel in this city, wit your thousand of professing Christians?your meetings f> prayer, your Sabbath schools, your tract distributorswliat could one minister do in this great city, mid u hi despondency must seize his heart, when lie surveyed th vast population ? What is it f Three hundred thousand 'Tib but one third of that allotted to the missionary ! Ca he personally preach to so many 1 InijKissible ! Tlieonl way you can reach them is by the Christian press. Thi this alone, with its ten thousand trumpet tongues, cn speak to every heart, to every heathen. Do the ignorar need instruction.' The Christian tract w ill be their ii structor! It will teach them the knowledge of the tru God! It w ill dirret them to him who sticketh clorvr tlin a toother '. It will poiut out to them that pure louutai which cleansjf from all tin ! It will shew them tli halm of Gilead anil tliw healing physician, idly. Ai other reason why we should sup|>ort this instiiutioi is, because they desire the tracts. Could us wi nets their applications to the Missionary, their deep aarr est desire to obtain a single tract, every heart would b touched, und every hand be extended to send them win they so much ncod for the healing of the nations. Ever report wo receive tells of this curnast desire. Does th missionary take a box of books or a bundle of tracts wit him, he is immediately surrounded by multitudes of th natives, begging for one w itli inconceivable I'amestnes and almost taking them from him by violence. Docs hi lor greater security from the pressure, or to enable lilt to distribute with greater discrimination, take a boat an push out into the middle of the stream, they wade into tli -....v.., iu.1 .mil. IU nil- hum, tiirv try, give, give, til give ns a little lx>ok. Shall Die famishing souls go uusi tUtiud! The spirit of our holy religion forbids it. In mi did our Saviour go forth and set us the example to teae all nations, if we are to l'oibid the Christian pref from sending them the broad of life. 3dly. Wo shoul support it because it will do them good. This is th moral lever which is raising them up from their dee 1 degradation, to the dignity of a man, of n Christian, t one of the sons of (hid. Behold that man 1 He we once wild as the beast of the forest! Now, now he is s mild as the lamb, and clothed in his.right mind, sitting i the Icet of Jesus, brought there by the Spirit of God ! *VV must never lose sight of the one great vrticieiit rausi But what was the instrumentality jou u*od 7 It was little tract, given him by some Itfissionary. It was rca by him?it arrested his attention?he read'it again, and was the arrow of conviction, which pierced deeply hi heart, nnd no hand but that whirh was nailed to the c-ro! could draw it out, or heal the painful wound ! Bchol that mother once a disgrace to the very name ! One nifaii she c\|>oied to a lingering, torturing death?another sh Consigned to the monsters of the deep ; Behold her not teaching those infant lips to lisp the name of Jesus ! Whs was it produced this mighty change 7 It was a little tract Behold that man on his deathbed. No terrors distract hi soul?he has peace within. He looks forw ard to a bettr home. As he vv as w aiulering in darkness lie found a sin pie tract w hUh guided him to the l.ambof God that taket away the sin of the world. It tola him of the mansions < rest pi i pared in Ins Father's house, and he now- looks fo ward in peaceful happiness to his entrance into hcavel No wonder lie loves that tract. No wonder he wishes t be buried w ith that tract on his breast?it was the meat of his salvation ! The last reason w liv we should suppei this institution, is because of our brethren who ha\ e gon forth as missionaries of Christ, and now lalmring for th salvation of the world. Not even to speak of the sacrifice they have made for the cause, or of the tender ties the; have severed when leaving home, it is to the case of th Christian press w e would draw your attention. There ar presses established at nearly every missionary station, an the materials are nt hand to keep them in successful opt ration. There have been issued fmm these presses 160 publications, translated into different languages , and wil not this Christian audience, and this Christian public sin tain this vast amount of labor? Have we begun to bf lieve, and not able to follow it up ? Have we put our ban to the plough, and shall we now look hack 7 What wil th" heathen say T what will ) our missionaries say 7 Thew ill have to lament the darkness of the times. Vour bit tbren will hang up their harps, and sit dou n in haples grief We had bettor recall our missionaries than leav them surrounded with the woes of heathenism, and hinde them in their work. We ni-glii as well set men to build i house like this (the Tabernacle) without a trowel o hammer,or saw, or axe, as send missionaries to evange li7e the world w I'.bout the aid of the Christian press The time admonishes me to close these remarks, but mi heart is full. I would plead the cause of a dying world There are 60,000 souls passing into eternity every day Three thousand have passed from niortnfity to immor tality since we entered this house ! ( an yon, n Christian w ho loves Jesus, liehold this w ith vour thousands of op portunities?behold them passing into eternity ignorant and in all their original depravity, without'sorrow oi emotion. Can you liehold him, w ho though rich, for out sake became poor, that we might be made tich. and ye w ithhold your gold and your silver which von hold bti: in common trust for the benefit ol his cause f oh '. if tin spirit of the Master had |iosst-ssion ol your heart, then yoi would not dole forth your }la.<*H) for the spread of'thi word of (fod nmong 6 or s00 millions of souls. Is this tin price?is this the value of immortal mid) ing souls Again I say, If the spirit of the Master take possession o you, you would not dole out vour $!.'>,000. but would have enabled us to have Pome at the close of the past ) ear w Ith a treasury full : av e. full even to overflowing, and wouli give us the means of scattering life and salvation over tin: whole earth, I conclude, sir, by moving the following resolution :? Resolved, That the Re;orts. an abstract of which hat now been rocJ, be adopted and published under the di rection of the Executive Committee. The Honorable Simeon Crkeni.e.vp of Maasarhuselta wax on the programme an having to second this resolution. l>r. M(!.!?:?, however, rose and stated that a letter hud been received front hint, which he would read. It wan to the elVeet that he had hern prevented, by other duties, from being present, hut he rejoiced that the aoeiety had, during the pant year en;oyed larger means of doing good thin heretofore, and also at the confidence which was reposed in it bv the public. He also rejoiced nt the unanimity which prevailed, notwithstanding there many denominations united in the cause. There were rreahyteriana, Congregationaliiits, lktp tint*, Kpiscopaiians, Lutheran* ami Moravian*, all of whom joined together in thp efforts for the redemption of men l>y belief in .lewis Christ. He rejoined that there was no bearing to denominational peculiarities either in the printing or distribution of traets. It stated al??o that the ifoston Society had contributed during the lust nine years ?2nn,(gio for distribution of tracts in foreign countries alone, and these had be-n printsd in f>5 niflerent languages and dialects. After proceeding at some length, lie concluded by stating that the duties of the society did not devolve exclusively upon the clergy, hut belonged equally to the laity. I>r. Mii.ner made n few remarks, in which he stated that if all the laity should exhibit, and be touched by the same feeling, the society would not have cause to regret that they were onlv able to send $15,000 abroad, instead of $"30,000. lie bless, ed (mxI that there was no cause existing which could interrupt the harmony of their proceedings, that their opinions could lie freely expressed, and that the whole Christian world could see that the merit of the work belonged to no man. The glorv belonged to (Jod : and Ciod can do without the aid or countenance of nny man. He concluded by seconding the resolution, which was passed unanimously; The Rev. Jt si i> Pt miss, the Nestorian Missionary, then rose to propose the second resolution. He said : There is a description, sir. in the T'Jd psalm, which always recurs to my mind when 1 think ol the good done hy'the influence of the little tract. "There shall be an Inndftil of com in the earth, on the top of the mountains ; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon ! " My familiarity with eastern scenery has given to this figure great interest, from the mighty eflects resulting from feeble mennl. The ntoinitaiiis in Persia arc not clothed with forests on the top like ours in America ; they are cutirely barren and wear an aspect of severe sterility ; and as the small portion ol soil there is not watcre 1 by rain from May till November, and there arc no eanals or artificial means to irrigate the land, it holds lorth hut feeble promise of a erop. \nd ve' a ham I'nl of com sown on thus.' mmininin patche-.. under the providence of Uod, will bring forth a crop so luxuriant and rank that il will wave in the lirctiM and shake like Lebanon.

Tlx: operations ol our mission among the ct Nestorians in Persia were at first very limited, owing to n- the fact that the language as spoken there had to he role ducedts vv:r ig bciorc we could do anything. And onr lie presshu tr ccently reached that lield of operations, in tetthfiiiii . tei ed hy this soeiety has not been the less k- interesting u t valuable. When we reached the Nestori,j. atis we louud most of the scriptures there, but they Ul were only in a manuscript form; the copies were Is verj rare, and in un unknown tongue?the ancient ill Sj riac, which is the s|>okeu language of the eoun?t, try. A printed tiook lnid net er been seen there id Only u lew ol the clergy could read ; and many of is litem could only chnuut the sendee ol their church w hich of they only knew what it meant. We found the Nestorians lr readily accessible; we soon formed a school, hut we had a- uothiug to teach them with : so wc first translated the to Lord's prayer, and then reduced it to writing in the spoki n 0f language, and collected the clergy round us. And the Ij. sensation was very great among those native ecclesiastics a when we read the first line to tnein: they broke out even ,c into immoderate laughterto hear their own language read us well us spoken. We made a few copies of this w itii the II pen. These we hung up, and collected a circle around it u ofNestorian children, and taught them to read. They |u w ere in raptures; it was the first time they had learned to |j read their own language. We next translated the ten commandments, and then other jiortions ofthe Scriptures; e and in all this we were sustained by the frauds of this Snie ciety. These Nestorion children repeated to their delight? ed relatives the precious truths they thus learned; and it j. soon In value u familiar spe< lade in the streets in Persia to ji fi uiii-oi inosr cnnunn collect n group ol' olil people a around him. and then teach him the word of Cod which he it had thus learned. Thus the handful of corn was made lo j. shake like Lebanon. Wo continued to increase thosa cards: {. and when the pressure of 1837 almost crushed us to the ' t. earth, we cuil.iiled our comforts and went with threadbare ,1 clothes, lather than stop this precious work. Our own ie hoard of missions was cramped, hut the Word of I.ife < [S was sown through the agency of your board. I.ess jt than two years ago our printer and press arrived there, 1 t. and when we put our first tract to press, it excited | jf the wonder of even the Mahommcdans ; and they said, 1, " What more marvellous thing cun even the new world ,r furnish." For they look on Aniei iea as a new planet.? I _ Then they wanted us to print books lor them ; and one of 1 K them wauled us to let him come and he apprenticed to learn the printing business. And witli this press we had ; the gift of tongues stereotyped. And it was like the tree I n of life to those benighted regions, (llere he exhibited the .. first tract ever printed in the Nestoriun language.) And S| w hen they saw this they shouted in their own expressive ,[ tongue, "Thanksgiving and glory to God that w c behold ,1 the commencement of printing books in our own languuge." And there need tie no other limit to our printing e than is prescribed by the amount of funds furnished by n this Society. For the handful of corn )ou sow ed in this ? mountain has already shaken like Lebanon. ,. Mr. Pkrkixi then went on to speak of the analogy bei. tween the great conflagration in Constantinople anil the i Tract Society. A hurtling shiuglcfrom uneol those fires horneto a distance will kindle a fire greater than the orii gmitl one. So a small Tract tiorne to a distance will helt. come the centre of a great religious flame. The tract of U the Dairyman's Daughter, dropt in Niconiariu, by Mr. t y tioodnll, w as the centre in time of a large Church of Chris- I ? tians unaided by human axcrtions. The Arminian mer- < I, chants are valuable auxiliaries in this w ork. One enme to 1 r Constantinople from the interior inquiring for the truth.? < He went to the F.uropoan Ambassadors, but could not tind I B' it there. He came to the Missionaries and found it.? 1 n' Tracts are like the stars in the F.ast to guide the w ise men I ,1 where they may tind the tree of life. No language can I t. express the momentous int|*:>rt of the resolution I have to i ofl'er. Our field is the world; and Turkey and Persia are 1 il but specimens of the wants of the perishing natives of the ? earth ; and specimens of the effects of the Tract system h in every part of tho world where it is carried.

He then sat down. r K should lie observed that he spoke in ancient Syria, and | ? ma le short paragraphs similar to what we have given r above ; and then the Rev. Mr. Perkins translated the same v to the audience. This was unquestionably the most inte. i resting part of the ceremony ; the ladies in particular, . were highly delighted with the not id and unique appearance of the Bishop, and rose up and stretched out their t i white beautiful necks to .get a sight of his ret orential y 1 voice, his curious garments ^is heard, and his tout en tenible. The Rev. Jons M. Pi i *, of the Baptist C hurrh, from il , the K.astern States, remarked, that the resolution offered by I i r him was a long one hut the time admonishes) him to brcv ity. i The printer to the Nestorians was a lad from Illinois ; he a t (Mr. P.) well knew him. He felt almost like introducing n t on that platform a Western custom, and give his hand to the Bishop, (here Mr. Peek shook hands with the Bi- f I shop.) He could not stop to analyse the resolution. He t > could not even wait to define the projected operations - of the Society, in its attempt to supply every family ? 1 in the west, w ith a copy of their standard publications, i f He could oulv give a very few reasons why longcontinu- a ed and liberal effort* should be made in the great valley of t I the west. Avast number were there not entirely igno- f| I rant, hut very destitute of the means of religious instruc- v tion. He might, if time allowed, speak statistically of the want of preachers there, lie would, however, say a word s in reference to the rapid increase of population hi that re- * i gion.

Many of this class of the population were tatho- s| lies, but they w ere accessible, and would rend the publi- s, cations of the society, if proper measures were ailopted.?

Thy kingdom conic !" With these general views I come to the particular subject entrusted to me. I have w atrhed with intense interest the progress of this Socity. and rejoice in that kind pare and guidance of God, that w hile it has enabled it to break .out into perfectly new and untrodden fields, has kept it from any of the extravagancies of the age, or improper steps that have tube retaken with a loss af time, strength and of popular confidence. I watch- I i d with intense interest the tact that after your Sot iet) began, simply 011 the idea that we hud not religious books enough at a cheap rate, and in a popular form, it presented to the eye of its faith, and the heart o( its Christian chariIt , the v :ist Pagan World, and it began to hear the cry of the Missionaries that echoed the cry of thousands and millions of the perishing Heathen- 'Are there no leaves on that tree ol life that will drop on this sick and dying people | too 7" Then, sir, came up that glorious de'velopement of principle so successfully carried out in this Society, ol i individual effort with the individual soul ! It w as a glorious expansion this Society then took in the Providence of God ! Now you are on a new tack again. God speed you in it Anil 1 have learned to love it from w hat I have seen in Roman Catholic couutrhs A few w eeks since your Secretary told ine that you had resolved to introduce the system of Coljwrtai-t.

How useful in removing the prejudices of unholy men against the Bible anil godliness! Another question has been itsrted in my mind, is not this Tract Society giving men i false ami exaggerated idea of the value and importance >f uninspired men 7 Is it not superseding the Bible in Jieir estimation ? I answer no! If we believe In the Bible as a fountain, it is suri lv no abuse ni" iw- -is -< - Fountain to dili in a little vcmiol ami c.arrj away some of .lie water ! Ami although the w ater may he liy'some galvunic influence depreciated, although some ol'it may he lost, although it may lose that freshness and coolness which it has as it gushes ami gurgles from the living spring ? vet surely it a man is dying for a little tin cup full, you ought to take it to him, ami so it is God's cup. In such a light would I regard thu productions of this locictv. And is it sanctioning high church notions that the truth is not sufficient ? If so, I for one would at once bid farewell to this Society. Hat every one of your publications maintains the high authority ol thr Hook of God, uid invites all to its glorious pages. We have no eleva:ing of the fathers of the first, or second, or seventeenth enturies?no !?the Bible, thi Bible, and nothing but the Bible! is the language of your publications. But if we love Rich and Buster, and John Hunyan and John t-'lavel ?and if we has e tasted of their rieh consolations, will we aot intrdtice them to our brother ?

The Holy Spirit put Bun)an in prison, and kept Richard Baxter in suffering in order that they might gain from that I'ngah a sight of the promised land, and with their pencil describe it, so that many u pilgrim who would not reach that height might csc the scene before him.

After Marie had finislied, Wendell Philips | of Boat on, made a violent and excited speech, full of invective, against the southern portions ol the In ion, and advocating the dissolution of the Union, and was much applauded by the meeting, showing that their evident wish is to obtain the dissolution. In his speech he admitted that the Constitution was a glorious one, (and yet he said he would dissolve it,) and that the man would assume a greut responsibility who applied the torch to this glorious tubiic, and yet (glorious consistency,) he would assume that ret-pon ability. When he had finished his treason, a negro, named Jantes Smith, addressed the meeting in a rumbling and unconnected manner ; and he was followed by another negro named Rimond, who addressed them, advocating the treason of that meeting; but lus logic was such, that at the conclusion of several of his sentences, some of these who had been applauding the most violently the invective ol W. Philips, observed quite audibly that the arguments he made use of were cutting the ground iroin under tlieir leet. After this negro had concluded to the satisfaction of all present, who appeared to be wearied by his exhibition, a Committee was appointed, and the meeting adjourned to to-morrow morning, when they are to meet at the name place, (it not prevented before,) to continue this treasonable debate, or rather mockery of debate.

Dr. Carvan read the annual report, which stated that temperance was as much thought of in I^ieriaas it waij here, and that there were twenty Churches in a flourishing condition? that there was an increasing disposition in masters to emancipate their slaves, and that there war# many applications from free persons of color to b? sent to the Colony.

In thr eighth wardal<m*,there vcrr ninety-seven houses of ill fnine; these, allowng an average ol seven abandoned female# to every louse, gave an aggregate of 87h depraved public women in that ward alone.

And this, lie report went on to say, was a very low estimate ; "or in four other wards, the 3d, the 5tli, flth, and 15th wards, (as we tinderstood it) the average of thesis lens of iniquity and these shameless women were is three to one when compared with the eighth ward.
