' A celebra ted physician of city praVicc says : That in my practice alone I can find yon fifty wives Svho by abortion are for ever incapacitated to bear children. ': Another feature in respect to this crime of most sad 'import 'is, that it is peculiarly the crime of Protestants. Not that the Pro testant religion connives at it, or is less severe in its enunciations of crime thau the Catholics, but because in the church f the " latter ' "human life is guarded at every step ot its existence by the confes sional and' by stein denunciation and fearful excommunication. Strange' as it may seem, there are mul titudes of professed christians who find it easier to make confessions of crime to the searcher of hearts than to make them to a fellow - man, armed with the power of a most . witnenng excommunu-muii. Hence" wc 'may see why it is that the Irish Catholics have large families, while the Yankee protestants have but small ones. ' And : we cannot shut, our eyes to the fact'that' if this practice, which one of 'the most influential divines of New England denominates "fashional murder" it! to continue with its present ratio of in crease, the time is not far distant when the ; Catholic element will predominate over the Protestant, and our country be given otQT to foreigners. Poofessor Edward Hitchcock has been making investigations in some of the ru ral towns of JIassat Imsetts, where the for eign 'element is not large, and basing lis observations upon the vit al statistics of those towns ' ascertains, that from the years I860 , to 1866 there have been ad ded to the popnlation of those towns by birth one child of American parentage to three and, a half of foreign. ; "N ovr. if this is to be the "inevitable law bf popnlation" in time to come, how long1 will it be ere some Irishman may write1 upon the tombstone thc last of the Pdritans ? : Future generations may in quire for that noble race which founded afjrcat nation of freemen, but there shall be hone brit foreigners to answer. Now" wc are led to inquire what ought to be done.' I answer : i. 'As guardians of human life and of heatth, we must do what we can to re moYe from.ttc minds of our erring sis ters that cloud of ignorance which has hrtherto' hung over their pathway, in regard to the consequences of their acts upon their !owu lives, health and hapi- iiess. 2. We must' teach them that there is no 'stage ot embryonic existence, more than there is in the respiratory existence in which a human life is not concerned, and hence to wilfully destroy life in ei ther case is'murder. If the magnitude of the crime is to be determined by the term of existence,' then pur laws are all wrong in making the penalty of infanticide equal to that of homicide. 3, '. ..We must call upon the pulpit and the press to take up the theme, and cry aloud, and spare not and show the people- their sins,1' confessing sorrowfully our ; own inability to make headway a gainst a sin so strongly sustained by all classes' of society. ' 4, We must hold our public journals to a strict account for the influence they exert in communities in respect to this crimed ' lam happy to say that two" distin guished divines, Dr. Todd of Massachu setts, and Dr. Eddy, of Chicago, have "re cently led off most nobly in exposing it as the very clinax of wickedness, and we may reasonably hone that others will fol low, ' I have spolien of this crime as involving the guilt of females onl. IJnt I dont be lieve any such thing. I believe that in most. easeSj.if not in all the husband is as guilty as tHe wife. And in nine cases out of ten, if the husband would exercise that compassionate tenderness towards his wife in hec discomforts and sufferings which belongs to. him, and should try to inspire her with resignation, patience and fortitude in view ot her anticipated trials, the. temptation to involve herself in a crime that must ever be a standing reproach would be very much abated. I have now occupied the attention of tliis society longer perhaps than seemed necessary,, and have in compliance with request, discharged what seemed to me an unpleasant duty.

The speeches of the President and the Secretary, of State at Boston on Saturday, were of the most singnlar character.

' ' First, That one of tho great lessons of the war is that the American people are a nation, and not merely a confederacy of sovereign and independent. States. . SecondThat our existence as a nation is based on the great principles, announ ced in the Declaration of . Independence, and vindiclted by. the Proclamation of Emancipation; tlie Constitutional Amend ment abolishing - slavery,;, and the spirit ot Republican democracy and : justice that underlies the reconstruction policy of the 39th and 40th Congress, which we hereby fully endorse, and which we de mand shall be carried into complete effect by every needful act of legislation. . Third, That while we will always cher ish and defend tho American system of local and municipal self-government for local purposes, and a National govern ment for National purposes, and while we are unalterably opposed to all attempt at centralization and consolidation of power anywhere, we hold that liberty and human rights constitute our great na tional boon, which local or State organi zations must not allow to be abridged or taken away. Fourth, That imbued with the spirit of true democracy, and believing that the powers necessary for the purpose of at taining the ends of the government ought not to be restricted to a privileged class, but should be vested in the whole people without unjnst or odious distinctions or qualifications, not equally attainable by all; and further, believing that these sen timents are in strict accordance with the spirit and tendency of modern civilization, we place ourselves on the simple and. broad platform of impartial manhood suffrage as embodied in the proposed a mendment to the State Constitution, ap pealing to and confiding the intelligence. Justice and patriotism of the people of Ohio to approve it at the ballot box. Fifth, The American people owe a debt of lasting gratitude to the brave soldiers and sailors who in the late struggle, for our national existence, so nobly fought for our liberties, and for the privations, sufferings and sacrifices which they en dured; and the loyal men of Ohio here by pledge to them and to the widows and orphans of thoFC w ho fell in the defense ot the nation, our sympathies and substantial support. Sixth, That we approve and endorse the military adminstration of our dis tinguished fellow citizen, Major-General Phil. II. Sheridan, in Lonsiana and Tex as, and .pledge him .and the military commanders in" the several military dis tricts of the south the cordial support of the Union men of Ohio in their ef forts to protect loyal people in the late rebel States, and to secure the organi zation of tho loyal and Constitutional governments in said Stages." - . Seventh, That wc fully endorse and approve of the administration of our present Governor, J. D. Cox, and extend to him our hearty thanks for the faith ful and able manner in which he has discharged his official duties and sus tained the credit and honor , of our no ble State. . Gex. Siieridaw writes to Gin. Grakt as fcl fows with regard to his course in the registry matter that the president and his Attorney Gen eral have been so long and anxiously incubat ing. The tone of the letter is characteristic and worthy of the intrepid and noble soldier, and withal so characteristic of the president in his abasement and perfidy, that we feel too strongly impelled to its publication, to forego that pleas ure, or deprive our readers of the interest of the perusal : HEADQUARTERS 5th MILITARY DISTRICT NEW ORLEANS. June 22. 1867. Gen. r. S. Grant, Wanhington : Gexebai. : 1 am in receipt of a tele gram from the President, through Bre vet Major General Townsend, Adjutant General United States Army, directing me to extend the registration in this city and State until August 1, unless I have some good reasons to the contrary, and ordering me to report success and such reasons tor his information, and also sta ting that in his judgment this extension is necessary to full and fair registration, and that the time should be thus extend ed because other district commanders will not get through before that time. My reasons for closing registration in this city were because I had given the city tw o and a half months, and there were no more to register. I have given the state two and a half months, and reg istration will be exhausted by that time. I do not feel warranted in keeping up boards of registration at large expense to suit new issues coming in at the eleventh hour. The registration will be complet ed in Louisiana at the time specified, un less I. am ordered to carry out the law under Mr. Stan bcry's interpretation, which practical y in registration is opening broad macadamized road for prejury and fraud to travel on. I do not see wh y my registration should be dependent on tho time when other district commanders get througb. I have given more time for the registration ofLouisana than thev -pro pose to give in their commands, for I com menced six weeks before they did. I re gret that I should have to diner with the President, but it must be recollected that I have been ordered to execute a law to which the President has been in bitter antagonism. If after this report the t ime is to be ex tended, please notify and it will be done. I would do it at once, but the Presidents telegram was conditional, and there is sufficient time left ao issue the necessary orders P. H. SHERIDAN. Major General U. S.

There is no such thing as knowing or guessing where the judi .ciali i farce, will jend, for nobody has liny faith in his conviction. We should soon eiylookj fonyard to ,his .being, elected to Congress -from 'Mafyland as' a compli ment for his quasi martyrdom - in this trial. . AVe look for no justice to criminals as long as the chief executive now in of fice holds the keys to the cell of every felon and; can swing him as clear of pun ishment . as ; himself is of decency and truth. .CorxT Bismarck has made another masterly move on the political chessboard of Europe. In a conferancc, held at Ber lin, between him. and the . leading states men of the South German states of Bava ria, Baden, Wurtemburg, & Hesse Dram stadt, an arrangement has been arrived at, according to which the South German States will send representatives to the North German Parliament in or der to have voice and vote in all commer mereial questions arising out of the re newed Zolverein treaties, and the ..Gov ernments to tho same end, will send com missioners to the Federal CouneiL Of course the South German States will soon get tired of this sitnation. and de mand a complete union with North Ger many. The. arrangement was concluded just previous to the departure of Bis marck and King William tor Paris, and we do not wonder at the Cable dispatch which asserts that the relations between France and Prussia are not cordial. It hardly needed ' a dispatch to announce the fact. Under the Reconstruction Act the work of restoring the Union is progressing admirably. A few months more will Buffiee to complete the whole job, to the equal satisfaction of all men who stood by the government during the wai, and of all men who participated in the rebellion but are now ready to submit to the national will. Why can't the President see the proprie ty of keeping his hands off, and of allowing the movement to go on to its consuination ? Why stir up fresh contention when solid and lasting peace is s near? Does the President esteem the way an end is reached of more consequence than the end itself? . Secretary Stanton has taken ground against the recent opinion of the Attorney General. He diners with him in nearly every essential point as to who are entitled to registration. This stand on the part of Mr. Stanton will not prove surprising to the country. It .will in a great measure make up for the silence he has main taine Cxn other important political subjects, and tend greatly to satisfy the people that his tenacity in holding place in the Cabinet pro ceeded from no retrogression from the cardinal principles of his party.

ArKiHr. The Union Pacific E. E. Com'y Are now constructing a railroad fromt OMAHA, NEBRASKA,. westward towards the Pacific Ocean, making with its connections an unbroken line ACROSS THE CONTINENT. The Company now offers limited amount of their PIEST MOETGAGE BONDS, having thirty years to run, and bearing annual interest, payable ou the first day of January and July, in the city of Jew York, at the rale of SIX EE CENT. IN GOLD, . - At Ninety Cents on the Dollar. This road was completed from Omaha 308 miles west on the 1st of January, 1807, and is fully equipped, and trains are regularly running oyer it. The company has now on hand sufficient iron, ties, etc.. to finish the re maining portion to the Rocky Mountains 213 miles, which is under contract to be done September 1st or this year, and it is expected that the entire road will be in running order from Omaha to its western connection with the Central Pacific, now being rapidly built eastward from Sacramento, Cal., during 1870. MEANS OF THE COMPANY. Estimating the distance to be built by the Union Pacific to be l,2tk miles, the United States Ooyernment issues its Six per cent. Thirty year bonds to the Company as the road is finished at the average rate of abvat $28,350 per mile, amounting to J44,ai,txi0. The company is also permitted to issoejts own First Mortgage Bonds to an equal amount, and at the same time, which by special act of Congress are made a First Mortgage on the entire line, the bonds of the United States being subordinate to them. The Government makes a donation of 12,S00 acres of land to the mile, amounting to 10,032.0(10 acres, estima ted to be worth ),0U0,0W, making the total resources, exalusivc of the capital, $U0,41,0l)U ; but the full value of the lands cannot now be realizel. The authorized Capital Stock of the Company is one hundred Million Dollars, or which five millions have al ready been paid in, and of which it is not supposed that more thau twenty-live millions at most Will be required. The cost of the road is estimated by competent engi neers to be about one hundred million dollars, exclusive of equipment. PROSPECTS' FOR BUSINESS. The railroad connection between Omaha and the east is now complete, and thejjaruings of the Union Pacific on the sections already finished for the first two week in May were $113,000. These sectional earnings as the road progresses will much more than pay the interest on the Company's bonds, and the through business over the on ly line of railroad between the Atlantic and Pacific must be immense. VALUE AND SECURITY OF THE BONDS. The company respectfully submit that the above state ment of facts "fully demonstrates the security of their Bonds, and as additional proof they would suggest that tbe bonds now offered are lese than ten million dollars on 517 miles of the road, on which over twenty million dollars have already been expended : on 330 miles of this road the ears are now running, and the remaining lts7 miles are nearly completed. At the present rate of premium on gold theso bonds pay an annual interest onthe present cost of NINE PER CENT , and it is believed that on the completion of the road, like the Government Bonds, they will go above par. The Company intend to sell but a limited amount at the pres ent low rate, and retain the right to advance the price at their option. Subscriptions will be received in New York by the Conttnitntai.
