DAILY EVENING STAR.
L1) I' H I U PILI m C E. W Th* FTirrt Dv.o'iE?Notwithstanding the in : clemency of the weather on Saturday aftor .'noon, Monsieur Fianeoni resolved no longer to defer the opening oi' thu Hippodrome, and ac-1 cordinply the doors opened io the evening, for a public performance it had been originally determined in the monr'n*. to have a full dres? r jbearsa! at 2 p. m , oa tbe above rained day. but thu was put of at the lasr miuute. tlie performance being deferred until the evening. Public curio-ity had been ao ex ited especially since the publication in our columns of the Franconi correspondence, that a large assemblage in spite of the weather, ?waj collected ir. Judi-iary Square, and about the City 2I-t.Il, towards 'he evening, long be fm ihe Lour announced for the opening cf the , d ?ors. At one time, great anxiety was felt I 1< st tbe perf irman res would again be port I p >r?d. an l we veally be'ieve that if such an f annom:c?tnenf bad been ma ie a forcible entry I wou.J have been a temp ed, so anxious were I the pcopiu a. out to witness tho exhibition. I Ilowever. any likelih >-d of such an attempt soon (topped, by the opening of the doors |wV'?he appointed hour, seven o'clock. and by ? lie time that ihe performance begin, there ^ a very jjooi size 1 as-ernblage collected. I%ueed, had the weather been more favorable, feel confident that tue place would have f *eea crowded with spectators. This prevented L many 1 'dies fiom being present, there be ng [ onlr a few who bad the hardihood to venture .-?at. ) The performances began with the gorgeous pagautry oi a tournament, than which nothing aw*e gr ind could bo exhibited, and in which historical fidelity had been truthfully attended :? giving tne spectators a clear conception of tbe splendor exhibited at these games of the feudal t mes. The tournament ended with the carrying off of one of the horses, as dead, the noble animal acting his part in the show like a rational beiug. This wasfollowedby tho ex traordinary gymnastic performances of tho lir-ther? Siegrist. whose feats of herculean muscular power, and of wonderful suppleness of limbs, were received with rounds of applause. A. Sat race was tho next performance by the Udy equestrians of the troupe, which led to Some amount of betting among the spectators, a? much interest being felt as if it was a real ra<-e in the open country. Tho successful horsewoman, Mrs De Ye re, an American lady, was complimented as she rode jound the circle af er the race, with shouts of ap plause. The next divertiseraent was ostrich ' racing, with small children as the riders, which elicited, from the ludicrous sight, roars of laughter Roman races, a? they are called, succeeded, in which each rider stood upright on two horses, and in this manner the race was contended by four riders and eight horses. M?ns>eur ilenri Franconiafterwards appeared on his dancing horse. Johnster. and went through a series of exercises, tho animal danc ing to the measure of the music fr-m the or ches:ra. it was admirably performed, and as much credit is due to the rider for his horse manship. as to the horse for its wonderful do cility and trainiug. The first part of the per formances then concluded with a chariot race between three of the fair equestrians each driving a sp in of horses. The second part, after an intermission of fif teen minutes, was opened with the bemtiful pageantry of tho Car of Flowers, which must i e seen ;n order to be underslo >d. boin ' alto gether a uttiqitr exhibition. Monsiour?Fran e >ni then appeared on his celebrated horse ?? Bayard." which executed some wonderful feats of jumping, and i earing up to an astoa i-hing degree. After which there was exhib ited the ino?t singular of the evening's per formance. the "Course des Singes'' as it is called, in which a number of monkeys and apes are the jockies. Their riding on horseback, their ludhrous appearance, and the mock reality of the race, with each of the monkey riders as solid as if it was an affair of liio and death t??ok immensely, tho spectators being convulsed with laughter during the who.o time. Some gymnastic exercises fol lowed. termed lies Jeux Icariens," perform ed by Professor .Nixon and his pupil.-, which are ex raordinary performances, e msideriug the juvenility of the performers. A steeple chase followed by the lady equestrians and afterwards sjmc lurther gymnastic cxercise*. su-fa as balancing a lar^o pole, &c , by the Brothers Siegri?". itnd other similar per formances, the wnole of which are of a first rate character, and only require to be seen to be appreciated. Notwithstanding the heavy fall of rain which at times poured down in tor rents. the canvass overhead kept it out fa mously. and although there ware places at dif ferent parts where tbe water leaked th-ougfi, it was easy from the capricious size of the tent to avo d it . The lightning that gleamed ?ve"he:.d. anil which was dis.iuctly seen through the canvass added to the romantic character of the spectacle, especially as from the proximity of the lightning rods on the City Hall, and ot a neighboring church, there was no danger of any accident occuring to the IIi:> podrome itself It was feared that the cou -e would not be solid enough, particularly for the Car of Flowers, but all went off very well VN e observ ed among the spectat rs several Sen ators, members of Congress. Governors, ai.d m-Governors of States and Territories, and it ?nly required 'he presence of a larger number )f lad'es to have oeeu a most splendid spec tacle. Rev. A Dihcasso.n.?Tes'eHay afternoon, die above named gentleman delivered, as ha>t !>een announced, a sermon on ??Progress." at he Congregation.il Church, on 5th street, beiag the only one of that denomination now inthi*city. Previous to the delivery of his iiscourse. he gave out tue hymns to be sung oy the congregation, on '-Christian Chari'y" ind - Christian Harmony," and, after an im pre-sive prayer, recited the text, which was [rom Acts vii , v. 01 . "Ye stiff-necked and un ri:cunjci<ed in heart and ears, ye do alway. resist the Holy Ghost; as your fathers did, so io ye.,! He prefaced his discourse by notifying hi* *u lieuce that the subject matter of it would be entirely devoted to a consideration of ihe latter part of the text; after which he com menced his sermon, of which tho following is a brief synopsis : lie divided his subject into three divisions : Firstly, progress in religion wa< philosophical, rational, and necessary; secondly, the causes why there was so little progress in religion: an l, thirdly, the effects produced upon the Church, and upon the world, by conservatism in religion, lie proceeded to enforce the ne cessity ot progress by illustrations derived from various sources. lde proved that there had been a progress in religiou from the time of the Patriarchs to that of the Mosaic, dispen sation. and from this latter to tbe time of the Christian religion. The progress of the human race in science and knowledge of the laws of the universe was pointed out?nature itself being in perpetual motion, as instanced in the encroachments and retrogres-ions of the sea upon the land He then complained of and denounced the '-vis inrrttit" of religion at present, condemning the dogmatic theology of tiie clergy, who exact*;! implicit belief in their opinions He aliuded to the progress made in X- litic. and said that ;ho ideas which govern ed our foref ither*. would not be received +>y Young America or the New World. interring to the causes of the want of pro gTe-s. he attributed them mainly to the defec tive mode of educating ministers at the col leges In tbe next place, not every person was fully qualified to fill a pulpit, especially now that ?ociety had l?ecome so enlightened. A minister required and ou;?ht to possess an enlarged and vigorous mind, illustrating this by tt.e difference that existed between tbe iLininalation of an inexperiencd and of a skil ful surgeon In like inauner it was with a minister, the one contiued by creeds and furmuias, and the other well acquainted with the suVjec'.s on which ho spoke, and n .t afraid *o boldly progress. ihe tuird head was devoted to a considera ti m of the effect upon ihe church and the world, by the conservatism of ministers. He showed how a clergvinan. who dared to think f r hirurcif wa. branded and stigmatised, and cut off from communion: notwithstanding his zeal and religiou. if he did not conform ex actly to every article of a certain creed, he w<?s to denounced, whilst some man, wno La i not, perhap.-. two ideas in ins head, it he ciuy said ?' Yes. yes. I believe.was received and sanctioned. F'or his own part, he ac knowledged the cree-'of that church, and did not object to any part of it, but he wished it to be expanded and enlarged, in conformity with the progress of knowledge, lie complained of e'.deriy minister* requiring every one to con form to their " dicta." whicti he denominated a sj^cies of -:^Id Fogyism. ' lie regretted that the cb??m was daily becoming wider be tween the pulpit and the enlightened classes, and alluded to the estrangement of the work ii ^ slaas-s. in Lngluud, trom the clergy, anich he attributed to the fault of the laUer. The remaIi der of the discourse was iu a simi lar -train, the speaker ridiculing the clergy, who would reject ail scientific discoveries that appeared te clash with their theology, P?^?r7* ing that (iod had never made a '-negative in science and an " affirmative ' in reli^to*1.

Little Crow-This chief of the Sioux In dians, residing in ihe Minnesota Territory, who has been for some time stopping at Mr. Maher s^ will return for home to-day. via New ii? * attended the performances at the lippodrome, on Saturday evening, in oompany *ith bis interpreter, a Frenchman, resident in that section of tho country, and was evidently mru5 delighted at the performances. Many ot ais remarks were full ot naivete at what whs going forward. The modesty of tho Chief wns rather shocked at the appearance of the fcmait figurantes on the floral car, and he ob served in his language, totha Interpreter, that they ought to be ashamed of themselves. He was particularly delighted at Franconi's horse manship, and especially with the astoni&hing performances or hia horte " Bayard." Ihe gymnastic feats also appeared to him very sur prising. and he expressed his astonishment that such young children, alluding to professor Nixon s papils, could perform such feats of agility. Little Crow is a great man in bis own country. Ho is about forty years of age, has four wives, and has had altogether fifteen children, of whom ten are dead. Whilst present at the Hippodrome, several of his old triends.

Ihe Association will probably be divided >.nto at leaet two sections?the fixct devoted to Physics and Meteorology, and the sccond to Natural History. Geology. Chemistry, Geogra phy. and Ethnology. One of these sections wl.l meef in the lecture room of the east wing of the Smiths-vnian Institution; tho other in one of the new rooms just completed in the second story of the principal edifice. _ A local committee has been appointed, con sisting of ail tho m> mbers of the Association residing in Washington and a number of o her L-i izens to m iko arrangements for the recep ion of foreign members and to tender to them the hospitalities ot ihe piace.

Spirit Rapping ?A meeting of spiritualis's, presided over by ex-senator Tallmadge, of New York, took placu la?t Friday evening, when some queer doings were carried on Among oiher things there were communications from the poet Byron, and the statesman Danie! Webster, through a medium. Mr. Tallmadge likewise addressed the assembly?consisting of some hundred persons?on the infidel man ner in which the Senate received the memo rial lately presented to them on the subject of spiritualism; and predicted the future arrival of a time when Congress would pay more at tention to the request. In the course of his address ho related many extraordinary cir cumstances connected with the rappings. AmoDg the audience there were several ladies. Those Shirt Collars.?The request for the use of the shirt collars, as ma-le by Monsieur Franconi, of a certain gentleman, in a letter which appeared among the Franconi corres pondence, published 1.st week, in our local L'olumns. has been, it is generally supposed, ac ceded to, it being noticeable that the gentle man's shirt collars are much diminished in size from their original extraordinary dimen sions, with the huge proportions of which. Monsieur I'ranwoni had been struck, as to think that they would be "just the thing ' to answer his necessary purposes. If during the present rainy weather they succced in keeping out the wet. the ladies will surely be inclined to ex claim in tue depth of their gratitude, bless tkast shirt collars. Approach op Spring.?Notwithstanding the late cold weather, vegetation in the neigh borhood of Washing;on is rapidly budding forth. This is plainly perceptible in the city, tue trees that line Pennsylvania avenue and many of the other avenues and streets, being in full bud. and ready to burst out into leal on the appearance of a warm day. During the warmth with which we are blessed at in tervals, we can almost sec vegetation spring ing up. so rapid is ks growth when not check ed by the cold.
