BALTIMORE. THURSDAY, MAYO, 1858. From a notice published in yesterday s Sun, we learn that it is the intention of our Baltimore fire men to give to their new ally, the Steam l'ire Engine, a formal welcome upon its arrival in this city. Whether His Honor, the Mayor, is to be Chairman of the Committee of Reception, or pro jxtses to address the Engine in one of those |>eeu liarly happy and graceful speeches, for which he has become noted, we have not been advised. We are glad, however, to see the friendly spirit with which this great improvement upon the old system of extinguishing fires,—we are speaking now of the Engine, not of the Mayor,—is viewed by the mem bers of the Fire Department, among whom it was, at one time, feared, that its introduction would meet with opposition, aod give rise to difficulties. The apprehension did injustice to the true, working members of the Department, than whom none are better able to understand, or more prompt to ac knowledge, the defects of the present system, and the evils which arc inherent in its organization.— The advantages of the Steam Fire Engine, over any hand-engine, both in respect to the volume of water which it is capable of throwing, and the force and regularity with which its streams may be projected, have been sufficiently well proven, by the test of actual experiment, to render unnecessary any argument in favor of its adoption. Wherever it has been tried, it has given entire satisfaction, and we do not doubt that similar success will attend its introduction here. Aside, however, from the merits of the machine itself, considered in the light of a useful invention, we should regard the substitution of Steam Fire Engines, for hand-engines, as a great moral and so cial reform. The very weight which it has been found necessary to give to the engine, in order to secure strength in its machinery, and uni formity and steadiness in its action, makes it ne cessary to use lforses instead of men, for its trans ]>ortation from place to place. Now, horses neither drink whiskey, nor throw bricks, nor fire pistols;- neither are they likely to prove incendiaries, or thieves. Firemen, we are sorry to say, or, at least, the worthless fellows who too often usurp the name, and wear the badge,-while they dis honor the calling of firemen, sometimes do all these things. They have been known to drink, fight, and shoot each other, and even to kindle the fires which they afterwards strive so industriously to extinguish, for the sake of the excitement of a "run," or of the opportunity for stealing which such an occasion affords. Of course, we do not charge these sins upon the real firemen of the city, the men who, at all hours, and in all weathers, are ready to quit their business, or their beds, at the first stroke of the alarm-bell, and who will go any distance, and face any amount of danger or fatigue, to save the lives and property of their fellow-men. These noble fellows are entitled to all praise and honor, and we are proud to believe, that there ar e in the department, whole companies, actuated in the main by just such a spirit of active philanthropy* Other companies there are, however, whose mem bers bear a totally different character, and it is to these, and to the "runners" of the department, generally, that our remarks apply. Wherever the volunteer system prevails, and the a|>- paratus is dragged to fires by men the necessity for having the engines taken at once, and as quickly as possible, to the spot where they are needed, and for accepting accordingly, the services of any body and every body who may offer to lend a helping hand, inevitably gives rise to the existence of a body of hangers-on to the different fire com panies, whom we may describe as "runners."— These fellows are mostly boys whose minority, or blackguards whose character, forbids the possibili ty of their being received into the membership of any decent company. They are suffered, how ever, to hang about the doors of the engine houses, and to assist in drawing and working the engines, until they gradually become as regularly attached to the companies, as though actually members. These are chiefly to blame for the crimes and ex cesses which seem almost inseparable from the vol unteer system. The introduction, however, of steam (ire engines, and the necessary substitution of horses for men, for their transportation from the engine houses to fires, is calculated to abate, if not Altogether roo.oN-e, this great evil. Men will no longer be wanted either to draw or to work the en gines. Horseflesh and steam will do all. Only a driver, a fireman to tend the engine, and a pipe man to direct the application of the water, will be required for the efficient working of a steam fire engine. These, from the nature of their employ ments, and the necessity for their being always on hand, ready for duty at a moment's notice, must be paid servants of the company, or of the city, according as the engine may happen to be private or public property. Moreover if the engines are drawn by horses, the necessity for having the hose carriages at the lire as soon as, if not before, the en gines, in order that there may be 110 delay in putting the latter to work so soon as they arrive and can be got into operation, will compel the use of horses for the purpose of drawing the hose carriages. Consequently, the "runners' " occupation will be gone, and "Sykesy" and "Mose" become obsolete in stitutions. These are some of the reforms which we may expect from the general adoption of Steam Fire Engines, and we therefore think, that the honors, which are to be bestowed upon the Engine which is soon to arrive in this city, are well de served, and will lie fitly paid. Its public reception by the Fire Department will be an occasion every way worthy of the eloquence of the Mayor, whose claims to deliver the "Address of Welcome," we trust, will not be overlooked, inasmuch as the hos tility of that distinguished magistrate to every form of ruffianism and rowdyism, and his entire and cordial approbation of "Steam Fife Engines" in general, only await a fitting opportunity to be abundantly manifested in words. The members of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, whose proceedings we have briefly recorded, closed their twelfth an nual session on Tuesday evening last. The atten dance was quite large; the papers read were, very generally, indicative of profound speculation, or scientific analysis, and were, doubtless, of more than ordinary interest to all who were prepared by previous study to understand them. Notwith standing, however, the unattractive nature of the subjects discussed, the Hall of the Institute pre sented daily a fair assemblage of auditors, drawn thither, either by curiosity, or by a desire for knowledge. Quite a number of ambitious aspir ants for membership, also handed in their names to the Association, many of whom were possessed of but "little Lntin and less Greek," and some of whom would be puzzled, if called upon to dis tinguish between a "pachyderm" and a pan-handle. Against this indiscriminate introduction of new associates a portion of the older and more scientific members were disposed to protest. But they had been received so hospitably by our citizens; had been wclcbmed, and hand-shaken, wined and dined, with such an overflow of kindness, that their objections, feebly urged, were swept to the winds by the "all hail" of their more impulsive and ten derer hearted brethren. A resolution discrimina ting between active members and members by courtesy, was subsequently offered nnd referred to a committee to act upon it at some future dav. But the most chivalrous exploit of the session was that of Professor H. Rogers, who moved "that the Constitution of the Association be so amended as to admit ladies to membership, under certain regulations." We regret, however, to be obliged to state that the author of so gallant a proposition sule sequently marred its effect, by confessing that lie was prompted thereto "by pecuniar) considerations." lie was, neverthe'ess, prepared to make a distine tinction. "In the case," he said, "of ladies" there are no women now-a-days—"lie would accept a reduction of the usual fee, and admit them at half price." As these arc the terms upon which "women and children" are not nnfrequcntly al lowed to attend the usual places of public amuse ment, there was some reason for expecting tiiut the resolution would be unanimously adopted. But 'fathers have flinty hearts;" husbands are not always impressible, and ever since Newton in a fit of mental abstraction, used the lin ger of his lady-love for a tobacco stopper, there have been grave men of science who have evinced a decided aversion to the pres ence of crinoline, and have obstinately refused to mix up their meditations "on the Harmonies of the Solar System," with dissertations on the last new ' love of a bonnet;" or to work out an hy pothesis on "Signs of Significance," in the midst of more significant signs of a flirtation between moire-antique and broadcloth. When, therefore, the resolution was offered, Pro fessor Henry Ominously shook his wise head. I)r. Gibbon, with true Homeric candour, immediately rose to the rescue. He boldly declared himself "in favoi of admitting lady members—of admitting them free. It was customary in this country to frank them every where ' —like Congressional documents—"and he was satisfied that if any of them desired to speak, the Association would listen to them with pleasure." Dr. Steiner interposed. "He thought the ladies already enjoyed all the privileges which member ship would afford them; for they now accompanied their fathers and brothers to the meetings, and that was annoyance enough—without their having anything to do with the proceedings." Oh fie 1 Dr. Steiner! we fear this savors strongly of the misogynist. Prof. W. B. Rogers favored the admission of ladies—upon the payment of fees. He was devoted to the whole sex, and supported the resolution from the conviction that it woidd do good." The resolution was laid over, under a rule, for disposal by the next annual meeting, and in the meantime we have no doubt that the delicate sub ject to which it refers will occupy the minds of mathematicians and astronomers, confusing, some times, the calculation of logarithms, but, perhaps, materially aiding tlTb discovery of siderial phe nomena. And thus ended this famous "passage of arms." It was one of those rare episodes in the annals of science, which could lie readily understood without a resort to explanatory diagrams, sketched lipoid the blackboard. But the session is over now, and most of the active members of the Association have returned to their respective homes, to prosecute their studies anew, and to give to the world in the fullness of time, the fruits of their researches. Tn all sincerity we bid them farewell; and we venture to hope, that at their annual gatherings in other cities, the value of their labors may be properly appreciated, and that they may meet with a welcome as cordial, and a receji tion as hospitable, as they experienced recently in our midst. ADDITIONAL FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. PAUMAMEXTARY PROCEEDINGS RECEP TION OF PRLISSIEU IN ENGLAND—CONTI NENTAL NEWS—LATER FROM INDIA AND CHINA. By the arrival of the steamer Ariel at New York and Europa at Halifax, we have foreign intelligence to"tlu' 24th ult. GREAT BRITAIN. On the 21st the House of Lords was not in session. In the House of Commons the time was occupied in debating the hill tor the abolition of the church rates. A resolution was adopted authorizing the issue of tw o millions sterling Exchange bills on the 22d. The Oath's bill was read a second time in the House of Lords, hut Lord Derby announced that lie should continue to oppose that portion of the meas ure which removes the Jewish disabilities. In the House of Commons the Attorney General had announced, in response to an inquiry from Mr. Roebuck, that the government would not take fur ther proceedings against Dr. Bernard in regard to the French conspiracy. Lord Stanley, in reply to Lord Derby, had stated that until the government receive the opinion of the government and legislature of Canada, lie would ah stain from stating their intentions with reference to the privileges of the Hudson Bay Company. The subject of the consular and diplomatic service of the country had been debated. Upon a motion to bring the financial part of it more immediately before" the control of Parliament, the proposition was rejected. A resolution was adopted after some debate for the appointment o! a seiect committee to inquire into the destitution alleged to prevail in Donegal, Ire land. 0 ' A bill was introduced and read the first time, abolishing the property qualifications of members of Parliament. On the 23d, in the House of Lords, Earl Grey moved for copies of the correspondence between the Colonial Secretary and the North American Colo nies in reference to any acts passed for giving the exclusive right to any one company to establish tel egraphic communication between great Britain and North America. Earl Carnarvon had no objection to the motion, but suggested that it should be amended by the in sertion ot the words, "or extracts of correspond ence." Earl Derby assured Earl Grey that no exclusive privileges would be conferred upon any particular company, and trusted that under the circumstances he would not press for the production of any corres pondence. Lord Stanley, of Alderley, expressed the hope that there was no truth in the report that the and Corfu was about to be placed in the hands of the Austrian Government. Lord Derby said that no exclusive privileges would be conferred on any one that were likely to be injurious to the British interest. Alter a short discussion the motion was agreed to. lu the House of Commons Mr. Gladstone asked whether it was the intention of the Government to lay the papers on the table at this period on the subject ot the Danuhian Principalities, in conformi ty with the declaration of the first British Plenipo tentiary at the Coul'erence'of Paris in 1856. 't tie Chancellor of the Exchequer said: the result of the commission would shortly be submitted to the Conference of Paris, and it would not be in his power to lav any documents previously on the table. Sir E. Perry asked the Chancellor of the Ex cheifuer whether instructions had been sent to India that terms of amnesty, including protection in mat ters of religion, should be helit out to the inhabi tants of Oude, excepting in cases of heinous crime, and, if no such instructions had been sent, whether in the opinion of the Government it was not expe dient to do so. Mr. D'lsraeli replied that instructions had been sent to India that there should be full toleration and protection to property consistent with justice. On motion of Mr. D'lsraeli a resolution imposing a stamp of one penny on all bankers' checks, was carried, amidst loud cheers. During the debate on the Navy estimates, Mr. Drummond called serious attention to the state of the national defences, pointing to the antipathy that prevailed to England on the continent, anil characterizing the state ot affairs in Europe as more unsettled than at any time since the death of Pitt. The fine clipper ship James Barnes, built at Bos ton, owned in Liverpool, was destroyed by lire in her dock at Liverpool. She had just" returned from Calcutta with a cargo of Indian produce, only a portion of which had been discharged. The value was estimated at one hundred and seventy thousand pounds sterling. The vessel was a complete wreck, and it was feared that very little of her cargo would be saved. It is said that time bargains "in insurance had been made on her, and that they had not expired. The insurances were expected "to be disputed. Another account savs that the policies had regularly expired and the loss would fall on the owners. The returns of the Board of Trade for March show a falling off in the exports of nearlv a million and a half sterling compared with the same month last year. The United Service Club of London had given a grand banquet to the Duke do Malakoff. The Duke of Cambridge presided. Pelissier in returning thanks said that his appearance amongst them would recall the recollection of the glorious alli ance of the two countries, and his greatest desire was to be hailed as the representative of a loyal, firm, and dignified policy. His belief was that the basis of a complete and lasting alliance was that the honor of one country should never be sacrificed to the honor of the other. He came amongst theui with an open and friendly hand, full of respect for their institutions and their sovereign, anil it was with the utmost sincerity that he joined in the toast, drunk in her honor, lie trusted that the prosperi ty of England and the alliance with his country might endure forever, l'elissier's reception was enthusiastic. The operations on the Atlantic cable were goinn actively forward. The United States steam frigate Niagara would be compelled to leave her berth at i I vmouth on the high tide of May 15th or remain another month, as her great draft would prevent her getting out except at the highest stage of the tide. The experiments with the new paying out machine were giving general satisfaction. Mr. Gough, the temperance lecturer, applied tn the Court of Queen's Bench for criminal informa tion against Dr. Lees, also a writer on temperance. He had charged Gough with being intoxicated and using narcotics. This was disproved by affidavits. Lord Campbell said it was not a case for tlie court to interfere in and the rule was refused. Application was also made in the same Court by the Chairman of the Great Northern Railway for criminal information against the London Timet, fin certain alleged libellous strictures upon him. The motion was refused. The citizens of Manchester have given a banquet to Sir James Brooke, the Rajah of Sarawak, the in centive being the development of a trade with Chi na byway of Borneo. Sir James Brooke, in a lengthy speech, called upon the Government to as sume the sovereignty he had'obtained over the north west coast of Borneo, and the London Timet endor ses his views. Queen Victoria had been reviewing 1,">00 troops at the camp at Aldershot, andG. M. Pelissier was expected to visit the Queen at the camp.

The Governor General's proclamation, calling THE DAILY EXCHANGE, MAY 6, 1858. on the Zemindars to submit, had produced no effect. Peace prevailed at Oudc, and the enemy were 1 flying towards Sccandra. Jung Bahadoor was to go to Allahabad. No civil officer had yet been sent tn Lucknow by the Government.

The heart rending Trials, Sufferings and Privations of the lovely heroine, BLANCHE BERTRAND, whose life was in constant peril, and who suffered more thail pen can re late, during her captivity, will enlist the SYMPATHIES of every reader. The popular and distinguished author has executed his task in a masterly manner. In this class of Tales it is universally admitted that he has no equal at the present day. In speaking of this new Tale, the Ledger says"lt is a narrative of wild and perilous adventure among the savages of our western bonier, and is full nf stirring inci dents, intensified by poetic fire and mellowed bysuMuing pathos. At the outset it takes hold of the heart with a vigorous grasp, and leads the imagination captive." The NEW YORK LEDGER also contains contributions from the pens of the following distinguished writers GEO. D. PRENTICE, MRS. L. it. SIGOURNEY, T. S. ARTHUR, SYLVANDS COBB, JR., FANNY FERN ALICE CARY, EMERSON BENNETT, WILLIAM ROSS WALLACE, And a host of other popular authors, whose names con stautly appear in its columns. As an indication of the popularity of the LF.DCER, we need only mention the simple fact that its circulation is larger than that of any TEX literary pajiers in the coun try. Its great success is owing to the. fact that it secures the best writers in the country, and spares no expense in getting up the BEST FAMILY PAPER—a paper of high moral tone. The exalted reputation of its well known contributors the practical and unmistakeably pure and healthy char acter of all its articles, and the care which is taken that not even one offensive word shall appear in its columns have gained for the XEW YORK LEDGER, a position that no literary paper lias ever la-fore occupied. We feel and have always felt, since the LEDGER attained its im' mense circulation, that a tremendous responsibility rested on us, and have endeavored to discharge that responsi bility conscientiously, feeling confident that ultimately we should receive the thanks of thousands and tens of thousands of families. The LEDGER is for sale every week at all the periodical stores throughout the United States. The subscription price is $2 per annum when sent by mail, but no subscriptions are wanted from towns where there are news utiles established, ROBERT lIOXXF.Iv, Proprietor, II 44 Ann street, New York.

WINSHIP'S PATENT REFRIGERATOR, For Preserving Meat*, Fish, Fruits, Vegetables, etc., etc. It is a fact that ought to be known in every family, and by every person, that provisions of all kinds are rendered very unwholesome for food by being confined in a re frigerator in which the air of the provision chamber Is not effectually and constantly changed. The health of many families has suffered through ig norance of this fact; and where it has been known, a change has been sought for by physicians and scientific men. Many attempts have been made within a few years to secure an effectual remedy, but with only partial success. Many Refrigerators, purporting to be Ventilating Refrige rators, are now offered to the public; an examination of which will show that a perfect change of air in the pro vision chamber cannot be secured without occasioning too warm a temperature, or without an extravagant waste of ice. The Winship Refrigerator, now offered to the public, possesses advantages never before attained in any article of the kind. It is so constructed that the cold air performs the double function of effectually cooling and ventilating the provis ion chamber on the one hand, and of protecting it on the other from the warm air without. In this way the pro vision chamber is furnished with an atmosphere that is uniformly cool, and constantly changing, so that meats, fruits and vegetables are effectually preserved, and dishes or substances, with delicate juices, flavors, odors, &c., will retain their freshness for a long period. The apartment is so evenly and so constantly supplied with pure and cold air that every part of it can be used—and articles of a strong, or even an offensive odor, as meats, &c., can be so arranged that they can in no way affect those which are more delicate, as fruits, jellies and milk. Winship's Refrigerator is acknowledged by scientific men to be the most perfect Refrigerator in use. Among the numerous recommendations received, wc of fer the following : [From, Dr. TTm. A.

The admirable arrangement, convenience and ornament al style of finish, fitted for a place in the dining room, en title it to general favor; but in its philosophic system of Ventilation lies the grout point of superiority over others. Ventilation, as nearly perfect as possible, is certainly the great desideratum in the construction of a refrigerator, in order to insure the preservation of the varied stock of pro visions shut up within its narrow walls. The exhalations of a collection of fish, flesh, vegetables, fruits, &c., of every peculiarity of odor and flavor, commonly stowed away iii the close chamber of one of our modern refrigerators, must necessarily, in a short time, tender the whole not only ob noxious to the palate, but positively poisonous to the sys tem. unless gradually carried off by a current of pure and wholesome air. This is a matter of vital importance, and cannot be too deeply considered by families, who, innocent ly enough, but through ignorance, would endanger their own, and the health of their children. WM. A. PCRRIE. M. P. f From Charles Ives, Esq., Attorney and Counsellor at law.] HEW HAVEN. September 17, 1857. MR. CHARLES WINSHIP: Dear Sir:— The examination which I made of your Refrigerator some three months since satisfied me then, that in the arrangement of its parts, the convenience of its provis'on chamber, and ! n its tho rough system of ventilation, it was far superior, not only to the one my family were then using, but to all others in the market, so far as my knowledge extended. I was therefore induced to purchase one, and it is due to you to say, that three months' practical acquaintance with it since has fully confirmed niy first impressions. Its neat and even ornamental appearance, and its admirable ar range men ts for waste water, ice ami provisions, arc ap parent, while a short exjierieneeis sufficient to demonstrate the fact, that its mode .f ventilation is philosophically ami practically all that could be desired. Yours truly, CHARLES IVES. We have live different sizes which we sell wholesale and retail at manufacturers' prices COLLINS, HEATH & HUTCHINSON, 22 Light street.
