tne Inclemency of the weather, National Hall,
ikfMer, wan well filled last evening by an Inteill
tfnt andk-noe. The ocolon was the delivery of
s lectnre by the Hon. James Pollock, of this city, on
the intellectual development of mankind as por
eraved by history. The object of the lecture waa a
rely charitable one, and waa Riven nnrtcr the aus
fWt of 1'oBt Wlldlc, Grand Army of the Rcpsbllc, of
CAt 8 o'clock pr. Theodore a Chrlstman came for
ward and said that, at tho refluent of the committee,
ae would Introduce Colonel Ilosbysholl, the Urand
Commander of the Orand Army In this Btate, who
Aad been requested to Introduce to the audience the
Ustlniruii-hed lecturer. Colonel Bosbyshell was re
celved with applause. The frentlcmnn prefaced his
introanctlon with a few remarks, In which he said
that the order under whose ausplceg this lecturo
waa being given was accused of being a political
ne. lie would assure his hearers that it had
Botblng to do with politics, but had far nobler aspi
rations. It has for Its mainspring of action the
JlcaveB-born virtue of charity, and hopes, by that
spirit of fraternity that ever clings about companions
in arms, to aid. Instruct, and educate Its comrades
nd comrades' families. In continuing, the speaker
ald that the order delighted to honor the men who
aad stood by the soldiers In the dark days of the
war, and at the solicitation of Post Wlldle, ho took
f-reat pleasure In Introducing tho lion. .lames Pol
Jock, a man who gave his oldest son to save tho
nation's unity, and who himself was one of the few
Mien in onice who used iiib poxuion to am s-imn-rs
into places. The speaker was loudly applauded at
the close or nis remarks. . .
Ex-Governor Pollock, In opening, remarked that.
u a Inc.Lnrnr. tin ceriiiinlv felt out of nlHCe. He hail
been invited to deliver a lecture, but it was a matter
entirely out of his line; yet he was glad to uppear
Deforest) tine an audience, mm whkmii-i mimv no
was about to say could be considered as a lecture or
mot. he felt honored at being called upon, tie was
pleased to know that on this occasion he was not in
the service of any political organization, for, as you
save heard, the (irand Army is not a political organi
sation, unless you declare that the brave fellows
who stood the shock of buttle and who gave their
blood for the perpetuation of the nation were politi
cians.' He was always glad to lend his services In
behalf of charity, for it, like the bright sun of a glo
rious May morning, gnus our pains tnrougn uie anil
reflects bright shadows wherever It exists. Tho
speaker continued his remarks by saying that "Man
liood" was the prime element of his discourse. He
would treat man as he found him, as he affected
society, but more particularly as he was represented
In the American citizen. In turn the speaker took
op man as he was found In different ages and coun
tries from the hour Adam had first appeared upon
the earth, and glowingly pictured the different
epochs which marked the march of Intellect
and Christianity and their influences on the human
family. The speaker had been called a Scotch
Irishman, and he never denied it; but for ull
that he was an American. He argued that we ail
sprang from the Latin or Anglo-Saxon race, and yet
the Intellectual development as displayed in onr
Government made us all peculiar and above all
Americans. France might boast of her Government,
do also England, Russia, and Austria, but none or
the people of those countries were free ; all were sub
servient to the Slate ; here the people were supreme'
and guided the government or the btate by their own
Iree will. In ancient times it was a great thing to
He a Roman. Paul claimed to be a Roman citizen;
a Roman citizen held a position which commanded
the admiration and respect of all people, and yet, to
day the American citizen held a higher position than
a resident of Rome ever did, because here wo rule ;
there they were ruled ; everything was subject to the
State; the people were but subjects. In closing his
remarks the lecturer spoke feelingly of our struggles
as a nation, and paid u glowing ttiimte to the youths
if the present day, on whom in a few short years
would devolve the cares and responsibilities of taking
eare of the destinies of a great country and a great
Jcople He was loudly applauded at the close of his
discourse, and after a few woll-choscn remarks. In
We audience dispersed, apparently well pieaseu'Vith

Dmpatch to The Evenhtg Telegraph.
W'AsniMiTOK, Nov. 17. The statement tele
graphed that a number of naval paymast ers have been
found defaulters Is a most outrageous falsehood ou
that class or gentlemen In the navy. The state
ment Is one part or a systematlo attack about to lie
commenced on tho stall' oitlcers or the navy by some
persons high In naval authority, with a view to affect
Congress, ir the question of the rights of the line ana
stuff otllcers comes bcrore It for somo legislative
The only foundation for any such charge Is that,
a paymaster on tho Pacific coast was accused or
having UBed about one hundred thousand dollars of
Government money, imt us his accounts were not In
the process of settlement, nothing definite can be
ascertained. Upon being charged with the use of
this money the paymaster promptly put in deposit, to
the credit of tho Government, $101,000, and de
manded an Investigation.
Paymaster Cahoon has lately been swindled out of
a few thousand dollars, and has turned over pro
property to his bondsmen to cover the amount.
Mr. Cahoon Is very old and reeble, and should be re
lieved from the service.

Sjecial Despatch to The Koening Telegraph.
Washington, Nov. 17. The published statements
alKiut navy paymasters being defaulters are greatly
exaggerated. Paymaster Marcy, who was on the
Paclilcooasr, Is a defaulter to the tune of one hun
dred and forty thousand dollars, and not four hun
dred thousand dollars, as announced in the despatch
yesterday. Other paymasters who had been accused
or being short In their accounts, It is thought will
come out all right. These Irregularities arise out of
the loose manner in which the business In the Navy
Dupartment was conducted under Johnson's admin
istration. The Census Committee.
The Census Committee had a meetinir to-dav. but
lias accomplished nothing. It is engaged in a dis
cussion as to tne provisions or the bill tor taking the
census, and there seems to be great diversity of
opinion among members. It Is thought, however,
that some bill will bo agreed upon In a day or two,
