There was a meeting Friday evening last, of the committee upon the city library, at which, we are pleased to learn from Mr. Ducroux, the librarian, a course of lectures during the coming winter season was definitely resolved upon, to commence some time in November, and to be given at the Lyceum Hall. Lectures of this kind might be made of very great interest, and we have no doubt would draw together a large concourse of our citizens, if the proper men are selected as lectur ers. If some of our well known and prominent speakers, like CMessrs. Sould, Hunt and Gayarr6, would undertake to do this kindness for the pub lic, and speak to aus on the many interesting topics connected with the history of this city and Stdte for which task nobody would be better qualified we venture to promise that our merchants and principal business men would be willing to close their ledgers once in a while and come as grateful and willing listeners. Our best orators have here tofore confined themselves too much to dry dis cussions of politics; but the public have never shown themselves indifferent to themes of equal importance, where the same amount of intellect was brought to bear in their discussion; and now that we are to have little to do with the matter of government, we hope our representative men will show the versatility of their talents and their acquaintance with polite literature, by telling us of their pleasant memories of the past. or interweaving the scholar's lore with practical hints about our every day affairs. Lecture by Hererend Father I. Kane.' This gentleman delivered a lecture last evening in St. Patrick's school-house, for the benefit of St. Patrick's conference of the society of St. Vincent de Paul, an association of laymen organized for charitable purposes. The evening was unpleas. antly warm. yet the room was crowded. The ob ject of the lecture was to show the paramount ne cessity of religion for the stability and order of society, and to prove that statutory laws are an inferior element in the conservation of virtue and promoting human happiness. The ability, learning and sloquence of the lecturer were shown inl the omasterly manner in which he acquitted himself. The thesis, in ordi nary hands, would fail to command general interest, but was treated by Father Kaue in such a manner asto absorb the attention of his hearers from beginning to end of the discourse, which oc cupied nearly an hour and a half. He was often and warmly applauded, in his exposition of the social and political vices of the day, and his illus trations showing the need of charity in government as well as private relations. It was, however, when touching upon the present unhappy condi tion of the Sclth, he drew from history examples of conquered peoples, ultimately, by moral and intellectual superiority, giving laws, literature and religion to their conquerors, that his audience, be holding tile great future, distant as it might be, greeted him with the greatest enthusiasm-an en thusiasm which showed the depth of the feelings he had moved. A. Part not Put Down In the Bills. There have been a couple of large houses at the St. Charles for the last two evenings, the style of acting has been sharp, vigorous and incisive, and the audience, by more than one plaudit repeated three times over, have manifested their satisfae tion at the progress of matters ; but in spite of the three performances of last night, the drama of life was not solely enacted upon the stage. Thechap ter of contretemps which are not down upon the bills has already begun. During the performance of the " Bull in a China Shop," one of the audience, who had to be removed by the police, was prac tically playing the part in front of the curtain; and not long after the obnoxious party had been ejected, another of the spectators was seized with a fainting fit in the middle of the parquette. He was carried out of the auditorium and into the en trance as rigid as a corpse, and it was only after the application of various remedies and violent struggles that he was ultimately sufficiently re stored to be carried home. Apropos of nothing, Mir. Ben DeBar mtakes his first appearance tonight. What Frequently Happens. Jenny Ridean yesterday evening attempted to commit suicide about 7 o'clock, by swallowing a large draught of laudanum, at a house kept by Ellen Myers at 155 Dauphin street. The attempt, fortunately, or unfortunately, was not successful, and no motive is known, unless it is at the pros pect of the near exodus of the frail sisters from that neighborhood. An Employee of the Olden Time. There is now in the service of the Pontchartrain Railroad an old negro by the name of Daniel Wil son, whom we believe has labored for more years in the railroad business than any man now living. The Pontchartrain ranks as among the oldest rail roads now in existence, and Daniel has devoted his talents to its service from the second year of its completion. He commenced in 1831, and has thus been following the business for thirty-five years. During all of this time he has been either a train hand or switch tender. He has never been absent from his post but twice, he tells us; once for five months, when Butler-came here, and when he " turned fool," as he expresses it; and upon another ocea sian, when he obtained a leave of ablsence to visit his native State, Virginia. (Daniel is extremely proud of being a Virginian, and be still speaks of his first master, General Elisha Boyd, as the most polished of all possible men. His general posi tion is that no one can well be a gentleman out side of that State.) But his visit, like that of the Grecian heroes, who were "carried back" home after their wanderings, ended in regrets, and Daniel realized, in his own case, the doubtful policy of ever returning to our first love. Nearly all of his old friends were dead or scattered, and the new generation of colored people, lie says, disgusted him with their lack of breeding and ignorance. He is still in the empioy of the rail road, and expects to end his daysm the company's service. The grosery store of air. William Sickler was blroken int i l.!st '(isht and robllbed of a qluwtity of goods wnorth about one hunldred dollars, and 2a3 in m)oney. 'The Dirtlrbanee nr the C( rner of Oall atin and Illtlpital ntreet.. MIr. Oliver Cantonl, lthose father was on Thurs day, arrested upon a charge of assault and battery witht intent to co,nnnit murder, has called upon us anmd made the Jollowitbg statement with reference to the charge : On Tuesday evening last, Daniel Linehan made an assault upon the barkeeper of the American IHouse, No. 5 Hospital street. Mr. Oliver Canton Jr., interfered, and Linehan was put out of the ioase. That night he insulted Mrs. Canton dnet ing the absence of the landlord and his son. He was shortly afterwards arrested and a charge was preferred against him of disturbing the peace. Mr. Canton, Sr., afterwards interceded with Recor. der Gastinel for Linehan, and had him released without fine. He owed at the time $16 for board. The proprietor of the house told Linehan that he would cancel the debt against him if he would leave the house. Linehan still persisted in coming around the premises and annoying everyone, until be came in contact with a man named Thomas Quinlan and had a serious disturbance with him, when Mr. Canton, Sr., ended the matter by kick ing Linehan out of the house. Linehan then walked up to the police station remarking before he went that if he had known that he had a knife about him, which it now appeared that he had, he would have used it. Linehan then made the charge of an assault with intent to murder, for which Mr. Canton gave bonds to answer in $250. The neighborhood, the same party informs us, has been purged of the class of population which formerly gave it such notoriety. There is now but one house occupied by abandoned women upon Gallatin street, and thesee e hear are in a fair way of soon being removed. Bullding in Haste. Passing through Felicity street yesterday, we observed mechanics and laborers busily at work erecting a house. The noise of hammer and saw was perhaps an annoyance to the neighborhood on that day, but if the dlsturbance of sabbatarian tranquility is at any time justifiable, it is at present, when tenants are as anxiously seeking for houses as landlords are desirous of beginning to pocket rents. A day's delay, however, could not harm either side much, and the labor on this occasion could scarcely be a work of necessity. Caommltted fr Trial. Michael McCommisky and John McKinley, ac cused of stealipg about $5000 from Dr. Miercier's hospital, and Mrs. Ellen Smith, accused of felo nioualy receiving the money, were examined be fore Recorder Ahern on Saturday and committed for trial before the First District Court. Arrival of a French Man of War. Tihe corvette Adonis, of the French marine, which arrived at this port on the ;th, is anchored in the river, nearly opposite tihe cathedral, and the tricolor was yesterday seen gaily loating over her black hull by more than one curious observer upon tile levee. A couple of boa's, also adorned with the French colors, were plying during tile day between her and tile shore, sometimes carry ing across visitors or bringing back some of the crew and officers. The uniform of the latter is very similar to that of tile United States navy, but an experienced observer can easily detect the French traits at the distance of a square. Mortuary Reports.
