I>r Wainwright read a M. S. copy of the memorial |
which M. Vatteruare had gone t? Washington to i
present to Congress. This document impressed j
upon the legislative body the hopes ?.f the memorial- '
ist of being able to create the same lively interest in !
I the ?acces? of hi? project here, a? had been evinced
b\ the several European governments to which it
had Seen submitted. Hy its adoption, many evil* J
which now afflict mankind, might be got rid of, pre- j
i polices of many kinds would vanish; national antipa- '
line, he swept from the popular mind; and treasures
in alts and literature, which now lie buried in mo.
aastic seclusion, or the the natural reccs?e? of the
forest, spread among the nations of the earth, to tin
ud? antage of all, and the injury of uone.
Much literary wealth might by this means, be recovered
to the world, and it was even within the
bounds of possibility that luany of the noblest ema- I
uatious of he human mind might thus he brought to

Un?( AtrnwU JUecling mt *11 the Female
Mural Reformer* from ail Parte of the
CuuMtry Vo Gentlemen allowed to attend.
Oa Thursday last, the female* of the great National
Female Moral Reform Society, from all part*
of the United State*, met together in the McDoueal
street church, at 111, A. M-, and continued in somod
until six o'clock on the same evening. The meeting
was very numerously attended, because all the
friends and acquaintances of the members were
invited to attend- Consequently, there were assembled
on this momentous occasion female* ol? all
1 age*. Some were upward* of sv\enty years old,
| many were under seventeen year* of age, several
girl* of from eight to fourteen years old, and some
of the females brought several little female childi
ren, that were under five years of age.
The Chair was taken by Mrs. H *, who was
I supported by the usual array of Vice Presidents, and
a Secretary pro Urn. as the regular Secretary was
The meeting was opened by c very able prayer by
Mr*. S .
Tbr naiucs of the ral delegates in at eudaitce,
from nearly all the cities and village* in the Cnilea
State*, were theu read over.
The following preamble and resolutions wete then
read and adapted: ?
Whereas the blessing of God can alana crown our
labor* with success?and for this bo will be . mi in red
of bv the house of lsiat-I, therefore,
Resolved, That we can in no way act more efficiently
lu heliulf of moral purity than by thr diffusion
f the Society's publications ; ana that the attempt
to extend our principles by weans of tracts, adapted
to the different classes of society, is highly important
and deserves our hearty c. operation.
Rnso veil. 1 hat the *' Advocate" is an ably cm.ducted,
judicious, and usvlul publication. We,
therefore, cheerfully recommend it to the friends of
tuoral rtforui, a ad pledge ourselves 10 increase its
Resolved, That un il the law of Goil is made the
rule of human legislation the interests of virtue must
be brought before our Legi-luture by means of petitions,
and that the favorable reception granted to
our petitions by the Assembly, the present year, is
matter of gratitude to God, and encouragement for
the future
Resolvca, That we will endeavor by vigorous anu
systematic action, greatly to increase the number of
signatures to these petitions in the coming season,
and that we will take measures to present ihem
whenever practicable t-? every adult individual iu
the several places of our residence.
Resolved, That a portion of Saturday evening be
observed as a concert of prayer in behalf of ihe interests
of the cause, and especially for clergymen, and
their families, that the spirit of God may rest upon
them, and that ihcy may be in all things leaders and
evimples to the ffock.
Resolved, That a? women professing godliness we
are bound to set an exam; le of christian simplicity. 1
with regard to dress?and instead of expeud.ug the >
Lord's money,for useless ornaments?to appropriate
what may he thus saTed to the furtherance of the
cause of Christ.
Resolved, That in givim? ourselves and all we pisses*
to the Lord, we do so consecrate our property
to him, that it is no longer lawful for us to use it in
toe adorning of uur persons, or in auv merely selfish

when endeavoring to purify society l>y refusing to
countenance rice in any To in. and by promoting the
intar. st j ,f education, morality, and religion, among
her own ssx, and throughout the world.
Resolved, Tha' physical and ntrral reform must
CO hand in nand; an t that a right understanding, and
its corresponding practice, is essential to the ultimate
success of the other.
Resolve I, That the success attending the efforts
made during the past year for the mental and moral
elevation ?t domestics, should awaken fervent gratitude
to (sod ; and encourage the friends oi reform to
go forward n this labor of love.
The Reports of the several deh gates from different
parts of the United -Mates were then read over
and adapted.
The delegate from Trov rose and stated that there
were hut 15 members when the Female Moral Reform
Society was established in Troy, and that at this
liiue there air over300members attached to it. They
hare paid $100 during the lust year for en le i voring
to pre rent riolations of the 7th commandment. They
hare also a school for female domestics in the evtr.ing,
where they teach them how to avoid the snare*
of licentious seducers, and they have reason to helieve
that they have saved many young girls from
destruction during the past year. They intend to
organize a Female Moral Reform Day School for
milliner girls, dress-icakers, and soon ; and they
also believe they have effectually exerted a great influence
on maay of their male friends, and induced
them to preserve the 7th commandment holy during
the year.
The delegate from Albany said, (Iod is ready and
willing to bless the exertions in the good cause, but
man is slow to ass at At Albany there is very great
distress awongthe advoeatesof Moral Reform. Thi?
i* principally owing to the wickedness of the people
of Albany, and the extreme licentiousness produced
there by the members of the Legislature.
These msn, I am sorry to say, who are seat up to
make laws to prevent the violation of all (rod's commandments,
seem w> make it their especial business
to break nearly all his blessed ordinances in tbeir
wn persons, but particularly the seventh commandment.
Adultery after adultery hsd been committed
by one prominent member of the Senate, and also by
the members of the Assembly ; and one of the latter
had seduced a most innocent and artless young fe
male. And these were the collective wisdom of the
State who W'-rr set up as rulers in the land. When
all the dark doings o( the members of the Leritla
tare, lor the last session, were exposed befnie the
b.tr hi titw hereaiu-r. me majority of them wouti I""
eat into outer dmrkn* ?, there would be wailing and
gnashing oftretd. (thftri.)
Mn. (Judy tbrn nut and i?id, I visited an abode
of ptvertyin that eity in company with* sweet
young rurfittivr of this Society; we there found a
young and beautiful female ; her appearance was ?n
superior to her situation thnt we su?t?rcled all was
not right. She was ?i? k for want of nourishment,
and told us that ahe had been seduced bv a member
of the f.egirlature. Me threatened her life if she ex
posed her situation to any one, or left the place. He
wished her to open a private house for females ot an
abandoned ehararter. and promised her ? very lu*u
ry if ?he would comply ^hr was take" thence, pla
ced with a pious female Iriend, and has since been
respectably married.
The l.'omaiittsr also waited on a man of properly
and a member of the rkiirck that let m house to dis
reputable females where naenv members of the As
semhly used to congregate lit was talked to. prayed
to, com meed of the error of his ways, and turned
both the girla and the Assemblymen into the street
to ahift for themselves.
I In t he ? hole, how e t er. t he ?oclety ha? heen 11 rated
with more respect than last year.
The delegate from Philadelphia said that the society
wa? not as prosperous as formerly. There are
in all about PM members, but they don't have the
ce-operation of ministers and their wives. They
expect to organise a b??dy of lovely young female
mis.ii narir> to send through the city, in order to
bring about a better observance of the seventh commandment
\nd the influence of ministers is greatI.

viaccd?he married this wuuwu?and baa since become
a great advocate for moral reform."
The delegate from Springfield, Massachusetts,
?aid thai the " Advocate" and the tracta have had a
moat extensive circulation in that aeetion of country.
The ministers of religion do all they caa to
preach about the preservation of the seventh commandment,
and to pray that it may he duly obaer,
vt-tl, and consequently the people are chaste, and
the society is flourishing. This society has 200
members, many of whom are males.
The delegate of Oneida County, N Y , said that
i the society there was prosperous, and held semimonthly
meetings; but still the moral reform ladies
were too much engaged in worldly concerns to pay
I proper attention to it.
A not her delegate from Springfield said, that the
prospect there is very encouraging The pastor of
the Presbyterian church notified all the female portion
of his congregation, that they ought to jniu the
moral reform society; he said he would join himself
nnd try to influence the male part oi the church
; also to become members.
Uter this a young lady arose and delivered an
J aitdres- the burden of which was, thanks to the
! Lord for favors received during the last year?she
said she felt a great cause for gratitude. The great
I amount of patronage the " Advocate" had received,
besides the great number of tracts that had been dis|
t sibuted, had been, under the blessing of (Jod, the
means of much good, and oi enlisting many under
the banner of Jehavah, in the cause of moral re!
i V middle aged lady said she always took a number
' oftho 'Advocate" and moral reform tracts with
; her for distribution vvlicn she went out ; and she ha4
| become so accustomed to it, that she felt lost with
ouirtiem; ami it uy any malice -nr mrgoi mem, sue
! u ould always return and get litem to distribute front
house to house.
Here the celebrated Mrs.Govo rose and said, there
was something iiUresolving in the strength of
God ; if our united effort* were only to ho the means
of saving one poor girl front destruction, it would
L>? something. Five dollars saved in gloves, side
combs, and flowers, and other useless trifles, would
go a good way in the treasury of the Lord, in the
cause of moral reform. God is love, and we mast
he united and love one another. 1 want the ladies to
pledge them self e? each to get five subscribers to
the * Advocate" or give five dollars to the cotters
of the society Tracts ought to be distributed plentifully.
There should be as much importance attached
to tracts as to the newspaper. Many will
read tracts thet will not read the newspaper.
Here a good looking lady rose and spoke upon the
important subject oi the immodesty of females
among themselves, both in their conduct and conversation.
She said she had carried her tracts tn
one of the most abandoned places ol infamy in this
city. The inmates read them; and two were reclaimed
from misery, and more were expected tofollow.
About this time (hall-past one) the meeting adjourned,
and the ladies took some refreshments.
The president called the meeting to order at two
A lady rose and said, that nothing gave her more
pleasure than to testify to the goodness of God. She
said that God made man a temple for his dwelling
i place, ixsteadofa receptacle for all tlieevil passions
ihat transform him from the image of his Maker into
that of the destroyer of souls ; and make this
beautiful world, teeming w ith the bounties of providence.
a: it were a wilderness inhabited bv wild
beasts, who know no better than to destroy one another.
We have a large church and a great deal to
do, and should not suffer ourselves to sit still Our
daughters should be fields iu the world, and our sons
be count corner stones Our daughters arc too fond
of dress?wc should instil into their minds the wickedness
of fixing their hearts upon adorning their
persons, and teach them that their bodies were made
to glorify God, instead of gratifying man, while they
are young and susceptible of impression.
Another lady said, much might be done by petitioning
die Leginlature to punish vice by imprisonment.
The society want to enlist 100,(XX) ladies to
sign a petition for the putting down of rice, and the
Violating of the seventh commandment. It w as discussed
w hether or no it wouhl be better for the beneiil
of the cause to bar e gentlemen join with them
in signing the petition Several ladies spoke upon
the sub ject, and it w as concluded that if the Clergymen
iiuil Physicians would join with them, their influence
would be great; it was proposed that the
petition should be carried to every adult, and the
proposal was carried.
A lady then rose and said she thought the influence
ot females alone w ould be perhaps greater than
when joined with gentlemen. She said it was females
that petitioned for the abolition of slavery in
Flngland, and it was females that accomplished it.
There were SflO.UiKI ftmalei who sent the petition
to Parliament, and it was unaniuioasly carried. She
also said that females were the cause of the abolition
of the apprenticeship system
\nother lady made un able dissertation on plainncss
ot dress The president said she had made it
a point not to gii e over a dollar for collars, pocket
handkerchief-, <>r-torkings, and soon accordingly,
for different articles of dress. Hereupon a lady rose
ami wanted to know why a pocket handkerchief,
costing thirty-seven and a half, aud a pair of stockings,
costing twenty-five rents, were not as good for
their respective purposes as one that cost a dollar.
She -aid she found them quite us good for her use.
The other ladie- coincided with her. Sev eral -poke
upon the *aiu? -ubject.hut it \ta> pretty much a repetition
of the foregoing.
One lady gave a diavertatinn on plainnea* of food.
She -aid it ?a< a- great a -in to be extravagant in
food (laying a?idc the injury it wai to the health)
ai in anything elae. It ? a* a- great a -in to apend the
Lord'* money to pamper the appetite, ua to ?pend it
to adorn the |ier?on.

injury done by ?trong fa.vd, morally aad phvaieally ;
especially ineat and apirituou- liquor*. Yea and

She went into a lengthy detail of the evil* ari-ing
from ioxnrinoa living; hour it nritrii lit0 jwiovni,
anil rr?? the ruuet of if/eat /irffority in rhihlrm.
She nUo -aid tha* mother* -kould c.penally watek

way of temptation. She -aid that atrong meat, tea,
and coffee (I d > not mention -piritnoua liquor*, for I

She al-o .aid that bathing, at regnlar times,

The proportion of -pleudidly ^'.res?ed young ladies
was greater than usual. Among the educated aud
accomplished female portion of society, the beauty,
ease, grace, and exquisite modesty of Fanny ELsler's
style of dancing, are justly appreciated and
highly relished. Tomorrow night a new ballet ia
brought out, and another ru^h lor tickets will be
made. We never saw such a furor as now exists to
go to the Park Theatre. To get seats for ladies, it
is necessary to procure them many nights beforehand.
Later from Itio rr Janeiro.?Dy the brig
Harriet, which left Rio or the 2d ult.,we learn that
no news had yet been received as to the result of
the elertion of governor which took place at Buenos
Ayres on the 7th March. The event is conaidered
uncertain. It is supposed in certain quarters that
a negotiation to raise the blockade \\ ill immediately
follow the elertioR; others imagine that such a result
is as distant as ever. All are waiting with im
patience to hear the result.
Our Streets. The Committee on cleansing

of having the streets and thoroughfares cleaned

the City of dirt. For the three years, ending with

on the first of April by Captain Hobert* of the British

token of their sincere eralitude.
The presentation took place at four o'clock at the.
City Hotel. About thirty gentlemen were present.
Captain Heynegone, for himself ami companions, presented
the trumpet with a rery neat and feeling
speeeh. Every word uttered was to the point. He.
said he could not find words to express his thanks
and obligations to Captain Kobcrts and his officers.
He could only feel the deep debt of gratitude which
he and his associates could never fully repay They
wished to present some token, and beg the accept
