Lecture at jus Smithsonian. Rev. E.
Yate Reese delivered a very Interesting lec
ture at tho Smithsonian Institution lust night,
on the subject, "What's thouse of Poets 7" to
quite a Urge audience, considering the unpro
pitious state of the weather.
He commenced by asking the oft repeated
question, " What's the use,? " In this utilita
rian age, this was a test by which 'the merits
of everything were judged. The common an
swer that,wou1d'be given to this question as to
Poets would be, that they were a namby pam
by, sentimental, useless, cracked-brained, set
of chaps. Tie school girl's idea, just from
boarding school was, that they were something
above mau a kind of being ahttle below angels.
The true idea was, that they were something be
tween these two ideas. The Poet was the " conse
crated interpreter of the visibly beautiful." Not
withstanding the beautiful was all around ns there
are many who would never perceive it without
having attention drawn to it, and the beauties
explained. The appreciation of the beautiful
needed cultivation ; but tho poet, in addition
to being an interpreter of the visibly beautiful,
was the unfolder of all hidden aiid spiritual
beauty the true educator of the Imagination.
The lecturer then enforced; in a very happy
manner, the necessity and profit of cultivating
It was owing to the poetio Imagination of
the great Genoese, that he and that audience
had the privilege of assembling in that splendid
hall. It was to the imaginations of original
Inventors that the world was Indebted for its
leading great Inventions. The poet was a
prophet, and, with the far-seeing eye of gen
ius, looked into the future, and saw the dim
outlines of these mighty discoveries ; and the
mechanic, or the purely practical man, seizes
upon the soul thought of the poet, and, giving
it a body, claims and obtains the glory.
Be happily illustrated the power of poetry
as the education of the youthful mind, by
finely reciting Southev's Battle of Blenheim.
He said that onr children, by witnessing the
pleasing pomp and circumstance of war, tho
splendid costumes of the citizen soldiery, the
inspiring strains of martial music, would be
led to lobk upon war with an admiring and
favorable eye, and bo too .willing to indulge
their combative propensities.
As the most etfective mode of counteracting
this wrong impression, let a father read to his
child by the family hearth, "The battle of Blen
heim," the mild satire in which would be readi
ly appreciated by the child, and would more
readily instill his mind with a horror of war
than any other means.
The lecturer quoted Irom Edward Everett a
sentence expressing his views on the import
ance of cultivating the imagination, and passed
a glowing tribute to the character and genius
of that gentleman, which was received with
vociferous applause by the audience.
The lecture abounded with beautiful thouglta
and happy illustrations, and we only regret
that want of space precludes our giving more
than this brief outline of a few of the leading
Rxuotocs. To-morrow being Thanksgiving
Day, service will be held in nearly all the Prot
estant churches. St. Mnthow's (Catholic) church
will also be open for service on that day.
At the New York Avenue church, (Rev. P.
D. Qurley, pastor,) there will be three services
daring the day eleven o'clock, A. M., and three
and a half and seven, P. M.
There will be service at the Sixth Presbyte
rian and Grace churches (Island) at eleven

At the Assembly's church, corner, of Filh
and I streets, Rev. Varnum B. Collins willide-
liver a lecture, to-night, on " Palest ne," and
will preach to-morrow morning i ; eleven

church will probably be dedicated, ne week

Stealing of a Coat. John Flyn was ar

on last evening, from the store of E hberg &

corner of F and Eleventh streets, w entered

was turned topsy-turvy, and many artcles wero

Severely Injured. The vicinity bf G and
Tenth streets, on the Island, was thrown into
a state of considerable excitement, about ten
o'clock last night, by the cries of murder pro
ceeding from the house of Mrs. Eckloff, re
siding in that neighborhood. From what wo
have been able to learn, it appears that Mrs,
Ecklolf, arriving homo from church, had oc
casion to go into the back yard for the purpose
of collecting fuel for the ensuing day, where
she was run against by a cow, which happened
to be in the yard, and knocked down. Her
cries attracted many persons to the vicinity,

Caleb Ccsiiino's Brio. The Charleston

" This fine vessel, under the command of
her glorious little captain, departed yesterday
for Liverpool. It will be remembered that this
craft is the property of Cushing & Brothers,
and was the first vessel to raise the Palmetto
(lag, as she did amid a salute of cannon, and
the cheers of an immense concourse of persons.
The ladies of the city are going to present the
lion. Caleb Cushing with a neat likeness of
tho James Gray in silver, which wo hope will
be finished by the return of Capt. Plummer ;
and while we speak of this, we would suggest
the putting of subscription lists In stores in
King street, and other places where ladies
' most do congregate.' "
