TI1EJUILY yNING TELSGRAril PHILADELriHA, FRIDAY, JUNE 9, 1871,
CITY IWTELL1GEWCB, rUOTOGRlPUIC. Tl Third Day's Business Scselon of the National Photographic Association Trleeal Papers and Dlicuiiloni-Gene ral Business. Tlio third day' business session of the Na tional Photographic Asociatlon of the United Elates began at ten o'clock this morning in the basement ef Horticultural Hall, President Bo gardus in the chair. The President exhibited an old daguerreotype camera which had been procured for the use of the association of Dr. Dickson by Mr. Gallo V. (Jheston. Tuts was made at the time that Da guerre conducted his experiments. Mr. M. A. Root was introduced, who exhibited the first daguerreotype ever made in the State of Pennsylvania. It was made by Mr. Saxton, who was at the time employed in the United States Mint In Philadelphia. When the results of Daguerre's experiments were published in the papers Saxton read them in the morning, and in the afternoon made the picture with a cigar box, an opera glass lens, and a Seldlltz powder box la which to fume the plate. Mr. Root also exhibited' other daguerreotype plates, showing the progress of the art at dif ferent dates, which were the property, and bor rowed from the rooms, of the Historical Society. A very early photograph was also shewn, made in the year 1S42. A first attempt on silk was exhibited, which was made by Mr. Southworth, of Boston, who was present at the meeting of the association, and lecognized the picture, though he did not know that it was to be exhibited. Several other mementos and historical relics connected with the art were shown, which Mr. Root said he intended to donate to the Historl . nl Society. The President then read his yearly address, which expressed great gratification at the pre sent standing of the association and of the art. The association has given us an opportunity to compare our work with that of others. It has put down the stlflsh man and put up the gene rous. We are now proud of being members of the association. The time can be remembered when we were ashamed of the craft. We now compare favorably with the European members of the profession. It is a good thing that there are so many young men in the craft, for in that is the promise of great effects. Who can tell what wonders will be exhibited by the photo graphers ten years hence? Photography is nww one of the indlspensables. Too many photo graphers are now doing too many varieties of work, and they cannot expect to succeed well in all. The aim of the profession should be high, and no member should do anything to deerade it. Mr. W. J. Baker, of Buffalo, was then called upon, who gave, with the aid of blackboard diagrams, a description of his method of light ing the sitter and of the effects which he pro duced. Mr. Johnson, of Scranton, being called npon, gave a description of his peculiar method of working in out-door photography. Tee report of the Committee on Apprentice ship appointed last year was called for and read by the Secretary. The report stated that bound apprenticeship is very unpopular in all departments of trade, and boys when bound out do not take the same interest in the affairs of their employers as they do when they know that the retention of their situation depends upon his good behavior. The committee recommend that a three-years' ap prenticeship should be agreed npon by the ftSSOCl&tiODe If a student serves that time he should receive a diploma from his employer, the blank forms of which should be supplied by the association. No fixed rate could be agreed npon on account of the difference in the cost of living in different localities, but recommend that a small rate be paid first, which should be increased afterwards. The employe, if for any just cause he should wish to stop his course of studies, should receive an honorable certificate from his employer, stating howlong.be had to serve. A person presenting such a certificate could then be em ployed by any member of the association. The -committee recommend the formation of a pho tographic academy for the better education of etndents. The report was received, but, previous to adoption, was discussed at length. It was objected that there was no provision made for cases where the employer himself proved defective. A motion was made that the report be pub lished, and its adoption referred to the next annual meeting. A resolution asking that a practical retouch ing artist be procured to explain his theory at the afternoon session was made and passed. A motion was made to reconsider this resolu tion, on account of the difficulty of explaining such a process in public, but it was voted down. Mr. Baker, of Buffalo, gave a few remarks on the subject of retouching. Mr. Southworth, of Boston, Mr. Ayres, of Buffalo, Mr. Lyman G. Bigelow, Mr. Fensltaore, of Philadelphia, Mr. Bogardus, of New York, and Mr. Baker, of Philadelphia, also followed with explanations on the saine subject. A communication was received from Mr. Holmes, of New York, decliniug to serve as vice-president of the association. A motion was made that the resignation should not be accepted. Agreed to unani mously. . Mr. Holmes made a short address, giving the reasons why the resignation had been presented, and thanking the association for the honor of the office, but expressing regret that the re signation had not been accepted. A motion was made by Mr. Spencer that at the next exhibition the exhibitor or a picture exhibit also the negative from which the pic ture is made, so that it can be seen what class of negatives make the best pictures. A notice was given of a change in the institu tion, to be acted ou at the next meeting, pro viding that all officers be henceforward elected by ballot. Adjourned until 3 P.M. Homoeopathic Editorial Association. Yesterday morning the members of the Homoco- Dr. R. J. McClatchey, editor of the Hahw inannian Monthly, and after breakfast a meet inar of the association was held. The following centlemen were present : I. T. Talbot, of Boston, and W.

James, of Phila delphia, of the American Ilomoiopathio Ob terver; T. P. Wilson, of Cleveland, of the Ohio Medical and tiuraical liaporter: ana Messrs Baericke and Tafel, publishers. The associa tion, after transacting: business relating to the improvement of homeopathic medical jour-nalii-in, and electing officers, adjourned to meet at the next session of the American institute 01 Homoeopathy. Music Hath No Charms. Three Italians, named respectively Piedro de Gillo, J. Antonio, and Joseph Piscarneni, the two former fiddlers and the latter a harpist, struck up a dulcet strain, at 9 o clock yesterday mornlnir. in Bauk street, and kept at it steadily for one hour. In this brief space more blunders were made in the ac counts of the various firms than had hitherto occurred in years. The proprietors one by one admonished these zealous troubadours that they must cease, but they courageously held their own. Finally they were driven out of Bank streetbut.tto the horror of the firms in question, they appeared in Strawberry street, on which their establishments have a front, and struck their instruments revengefully. Upon this they were arrested and fined by au alderman. Pbttt Thefts. Mary Ann Slates yesterday stole some clothing iroin a sister boarder in a house in St. Mary street, near Eighth. Officer ( arrlL'an arrested tier, and she was held to John Devlin invaded a toy shop on Fourth .tret. near York avenue, ana stole some piay things, for which offense he was held to answer iioMa-oriTiir. Twenl jtadghth Anniversary of the AmerU can Institute of Homoeopathy The Woman Question Before the Institute They are Admitted Members. The Institute began its fourth day's session at 0 o'clock this morning, in the usual place, with Dr. J. J. Youlin, of Jersey City, in the chair. After the reading of a few announcements Dr. N. R. Morse, of Salem, Mass., arose and said: Mr. President, I desire to call the attention of the meeting to tbe constitution of ttils body. In It is contained nothing In regard to female physicians, mice 8th of the by-laws prescribes on what condi tions a physician may be admitted a niemoer of this institute. The article lu question says nothing whatever as to the sex or color, and according to its reading a female or colored man la entirely eligible to membership here, provided he complies with the other quantitations which we are all required to possess. Now we can alter the ht -laws by a vote of the irajority of those present. In Boston, ou June the 9th, lw9, a resolution was adopted by the insti tute reading thus: Jitmlvrd, That properly qualified physicians, men or women, are eligible to membership of the Ameri can Institute of Homwopathy. Now there has b-en some doubt about this. The constitution does not exclude females; the by laws say nothing about It, the Institute has virtu ally resolved to admit females to membership, an1 In view of these considerations and In order to put tno matter beyond all donbt I now move that, artltle ninth of the by-laws be anicnded so as to distinctly carry out the Intention of the Boston re solution. Dr. McManus, of Baltimore I move to lay the resolution on the table. Dr. H. M. Smith, of New Jersey I do not see the necessity of pressing this matter just at pre sent. The Bureau of Statistics have several amendments to the by-laws, which will be duly reported, and the question about the admission of females will be one of them. I therefore hope that Dr. Morse will withdraw it at present, and let the subject come np at the proper time. Dr. Morse then withdrew his motion for the present. Dr. C. H. Von Taylor, of Ilarrlsburg. pre sented and read an extract of his paper on an "Operation for the removarof an abdominal fibroid tumor." Dr. J. 8. P. Lord, of Poughkeepsie, from the Bureau of Anatomy, Physiology, and Hyglone, presented the report of the bureau and an article of bis own on the "Physiological significance of a cell of three parts." Dr. Smith here presented the report of the Bureau of Statistics, and in it was contained the amendment making the alteration of article 9 of the by-laws, admitting female physicians. The report was received, and the recommenda tion of the bureau was unanimously adopted. The result was, of course, applauded. After the transaction of business ot no public importance, the meeting proceeded to take up the resolutions of Dr. Verdi, whlcn were offered yesterday, and which were made the special order for to-day at 10 o'clock. ur. Verdi addressed the meeting on ms reso lutions. Dr. Pembcrton Dudley, of Philadelphia, said that he was not yet prepared to discontinue the orations, but he was in favor of guarding the institute. The oration is a valuable aid to us. By it the public are taught our principles, and he thought that nothing would be gained and much lost by abolishing it, even if an orator now and then delivers sentiments which are not held in general acceptance. Dr. Dudley here offered the following: as a substitute for the resolutions of Dr. Verdi: Resolved. That a committee or three be appointed at each annual meeting, the chairman of which shall be a resident or the county In which the next meeting is to be held, who shall examine the address to be delivered, and report whether "approved" or "dia approved," and such report shall be in order at any time after the conclusion of the President's opening address, and no address disapproved oy tne commit tee shall be delivered from the platform or the Insti tute, except by a vote of the majority thereof. This resolution was voted down. Dr. Koch then presented the following as an amendment: Resolved. That the "resident physicians" of the places of meeting of the future sessions of the In stitute are not expected to give a public entertain ment to Its members. This was ruled as being out of order as an amendment, but might be offered as an original resolution. Dr. F. R. McManus, of Baltimore, offered the following substitute: Resolved, That the subject of every annual address shall be con lined to medical and scientific subjects. to the exclusion of all matters either political or religious. This was voted down, and the resolutions of Dr. Verdi being put they were adopted by a large majority. Dr. verdl nere addressed tne meeting ana in vlted the institute to bold its next anniversary in Washington: Dr. Beckwith presented the claims of Cleveland, Ohio, and Dr. Koch read an Invitation trom tne (secretary or tne state Society of California for the institute to meet in San l rancisco next year. these suggestions were discussed at lengtn, and Dr. Verdi stated that it was highly neces sary to go to Washington, in order to counteract the influence ot nouicropatny witn uongress He stated in this connection that the allopathic physicians last winter utterly disgraced them selves, tbe police having had to be called In. ur. Di.il, oi xxew loriv, was ratuer in lavor ot Washington, as there are a couple of resolutions before Congress which are of much importance t ti ii a v- . r i A.t - i to homoeopaths. After a vast deal of voting, resolutions, and reconsiderations, the fight being between Wash lngton and Cleveland, the meeting nnaiiy de cided, by a vote of 53 to 47, to meet in Wash ington, a substitute of Dr. Payne having accom plished that obiect. The institute tnen went into an election ior officers: For President, Dr. I. T. Talbot and J. J. Youlin, of New Jersey, were nominated. Tne tellers appointea were as ieiiows: urs Pemberton Dudley, T.

The President finally decided the motion to expugn could not be entertained. Mr. Fitzwilllams, in a personal explanation) stated on behalf of Columbia Union that Pey had never desired to force this negro ques tion on the International Union. Two years ago at Albany a delegate from Columbia Union introduced the subject without Instructions to that effect, and his mo tion was to relieve Columbia Union of the onus of having originated the question. A resolution that the Albany Convention did not intend to censure the Washington Union by the resolution passed in reference to L. F. Douglass was passed by a large majority.

It. F. CructNHATi, Jane 9 The Qazellt prints a letur from the Hon. B. F. Wade, on which its announcement wai based that Mr. Wade would, nader certain circumstances, accept the Repub lican nomination for Governor. It publishes this, it says, because an'effort is making t Im press on the public mind that Mr. Wade desires to enter the cokttst for the nomination. Mr. V ade says he has received many communica tions like the one to which the late one was a reply, and to which he had replied that he w ould not accept the nomination were it offered to him. He says, on reflection, however, he was satis- fled this was puttlpg the case too strongly, when I remember, he says, how firmly and generously the great Republican party at Ohio stood by me for eighteen years, during the most turbulent and perilous period of our history. Should the Republican convention consider that it is essential to success to order me again into the fleld.I could not disobey their mandate wlthn out base ingratitude, If not dereliction of prln- clp'es. He then simply a'luded to the course of the Democratic party, indicating lu unfitness to control pablic affairs, and says be cannot doubt that the contention will be aVe to find many more efficient standard-bearers than h'mself, and such was bis most sincere hope and desire.
