LOCAL MTBUimCB. Tb* Mai*b L\w?On Sunday night, a meeting ff Temperance League, No. 1, ?aa held at the Hall in E street, on which occasion General Carey, of Ohio, addressed those as sembled. at great length, in favor of the Maine Lav, contending that the attempts made to regulate the liquor trade had baen tried and had all failed. He maintained that the liqu >r traffic was not the subject of regulation, aud it *u proved by experience for the simplest of all reasons, that it was an '-irregularity," and therefore an irregularity was n>t a proper sub ject for regulation. Could a surgeon regulate ? cancer ' and the licensing aystem was like & pooltke applied to a cancer, which only ag gravated the disease The only way to sure it is to cut itout; it cannot be regulated. He contended that government had a right to med dle with persons private business, for instance. cne man follows thieving; another makes coun terfeit money, and the Government interferes with their business. A butcher puts up n slaughter house where it is hurtful to thv neighborhood, and the City Councils prevent it. Soch an interference wis all that the Maine Law supporters required, namely, thai the liquor tellers should be removed to where theyeould sell their liquor without hurting the moral* or well-being of the neighborhood.? Chief Justice Taney, from the bench of tho Supreme Court, had said that no man has a right to introduce into a neighborhood any thing tb?: will endanger the life and health, or peril the public peace and virtuo of the community. He would ask what was the dif ference between civil liberty and natural lib erty7 The latter was the liberty to d > what we'liked; civil liberty was the same, abridged so far as society demanded it, and therefore in the liquor trade it had a right to interfere. He went over the various objections alleged against the Main^ Law. saying that we gave up our personal liberty, and even our lives when society required it. as instanced in wars between our own and other nations. Civil governments could not exist without the right of the government to seize and destroy a man's property if it cboses for the public good If a nouse was on fire, the firemen would not ask permission to tear down an adjoining house if it was required, or even to put in a keg ef gunpowder, and blow it up if necessary, and yet to destroy liquor was considered a terrible waste of property. A man could not grow upon bis ground what he liked ; he could not. for example, grow Canada thistles, at least he could not in 'Jhio, for he would be fined for doing so. and even if he did not cut down, by the 20th of August, the thistles growing by the way side. The speaker continued at cou ciderable length, interspersing his address with various anecdotes, some of them replete with humor, and concluded by apologizing for the length of time that he hid detained them, although he was not subject to the hour rule ?: Congress speechifying. Usioi* Choir Association.?Yesterday eve ning, the members of the Union Choir Asso ciation, which is composed of the Ch?ire of a number of churches in our city, assembled at Wesley Chapel, at the corner of F and 5th streeu. for the purpose of a grand rehearsal of sacred vocal music of all the choirs combined. The members of the different choirs occupied the body of the church amounting to several hundreds, the ladies being seated in front, and the exercises were gone through under the leadership of Mr. F A Tucker, the conductor of the choir of the M E. church South These were very beautifully executed, and were pre faced by a prayer; they consisted of hymns and anthems, and were sung in excellent time, no instrumental music affording them its aid. At times the grand chorus singing was varied by the execution of duets, quartettes, Ac., by individual choirs. The first, a duet and chorus, was performed by the Fifth Presbyterian Church. In the course of the evening, the Navy Yard Baptist Church, the Ebeneier Methodist Church, and the Church of the As cension also contributed to the exercises of the evening. The choir of the last named church, under the direction of Mr J. L. Clubb. gave the gem of the evening. The last piece sung was the Old Hundredth, which was directed ? by Mr. Tucker in excellent style, and the ex ercises concluded with the benediction. It was announced at the termination that the next re union would be on the fourth Monday in June, at the Lutheran Church. The effect of the melodious blending of so many voices in singing the anthems of praise to God, re sounded grandly and solemnly through the sasred aisies. raising the soul to thoughts and contemplations of the hosts that sing *' Salva tion to our God!" around his own eternal throne! Crossing the Track.?On Sunday evening, as the train was proceeding from Baltimore to Washington, when near the crossing of the Washington turnpike, two negroes who were standing some distance from the track in the road, attempted to cross the track in front of the locomotive. One of them, however, stop ped on approaching the train, whilst the other, thinking that he had time to cross kept on, and was struck on the heel by the cow-catcher, and knocked some ten feet off from the plate where he stood. The train was<>topped imme diately, and on taking the injured man up, it was found that both tne knee joint* were dis located. Su^h was the violence with which he was struck, that the impressions of the nails in the heels of his boots are distinctly visible on the cow-catcher. He was taken un. and plaeed on board the train by the eudu to-, Captain Owens, who paid him every atten i n; and on the arrival of the cars at the Annapolis junction, he was sent to Baltimore by the up train, and placed in the Infirmary, where he now is. ILs name is Reuben Tilghman, and he acknowledges to being drunk at the time that he attempted to cross. The number of the engine was 127, the engineer's name, Gougb. Interesting Relics ?Several interesting relics of the revolutionary war, consisting of the standards taken at the surrender of York town. and which were presented by the Con gress of the revolution to General Washington, m commander in-chief of the combined armies of America and France, were brought over, on Thursday last, from Arlington House, by the venerable Mr. Custis. and presented to the President, as a gift of General Washing ton's sole surviving executor to the govern ment and people of the United States Among those old standards are a British and Hessian one. The British is the regimen tal colors of the 7th regiment of the line. In the centre of the famed red cross banner is the Order of the Garter, surmounted by a ?rowc, with the motto, " Horn soil qui ma/ y ptnse."' The IlessiaB standard is elaborately worked. In the centre is an eagle soaring aloft, in one talon a trunebeon of command, in the other an olive branch. Motto, ik I'ru Princes*e et Patria. 1775." Both flags are of silk, and nearly eighty years old. dilapidated by time They have been temp- nrily dep? sited at the War Office, but it is raid that the President intends to submit the final disposal of tbem to the Congress, to form a nucleus around which to be gathered all the standards of the past and of the future triumphs of the Ameiican arms It has been suggesied that a portion of the magnificent room in the eastern wing of the Patent Office would form a fitting site for the Halt of 'l'riH7mpJi, the Temple of Victory, to contain all the trophies of the army of the I nited States. Nebraska Prodi-ct.?A fine specimen of one of the natuial products of the Nebraska ter ritory. the lignum vitse wood, was presented to us yesterday, having been brought from that far-off country by the delegations of Sacs and Poxes who were staying in our city. The cample of the wood is of a very fine sort, deeply colored, and beautifully grained, and it will be a valuable article of trade, from the high price of this wood, when the terri tory is once opened to settlers. A New Military Com pa jit.?Last night, a number of our Irish adopted fellow citizens met at Copp s Saloon to form a new company. The preliminary meeting was very well at tended and a committee was appointed to draft a constitution for their government Yankee Silsbee at toe Variete ?On ac count of the sicknesu of Signoretta Sote, Mr. Risley has engaged the celebrated "Y ankee Silsbee." who appears to-morrow night, in his celebrated character in the play of the "For rest Rose," which was performed by Liin in London 114 consecutive nights. The Cut Councils.?There was no business of any importance transacted yesterday in either of the boards; what was done, had reference merely to local improvements and both UK Board of Aldermen and Board of Common Council adjourned at an early hour. I? Good Time.?Yesterday afternoon, at the conclusion of the parade, Capt.

ONE OF MANY W aahington, May 22.1854. ]t THE F0REIG5 NEWS. The news by the steamship Franklin, a brief synopsis of which we gave under our telegraphic head yesterday afternoon, is more interesting than important. By this arrival, we have fuller and more de tailed particulars of the bombardment of ] Odessa. It had been telegraphed through Vien na that the bombardment of Sevastopol commenced on the 28th of April. This news was not generally believed to be true, but it was thought that the two ad mirals had drawn the fire of the shore and strand batteries at Sevastopol, for the purpose of testing their range, preparatory to more serious operations. A considerable improvement had taken place on the Paris Bourse in consequence of a report that Denmark and Sweden had joined the Western Powers. Marshal Paskiewitsch declares that Little Wallachia has been evacuated sole ly from strategetic reasons, and that the Russians will soon return to Krajova. Great Wallachia, it is now said, is not to be evacuated. Three ships, conveying Greek volun teers, have been sunk by a French steara er near Salon ica. The Austrian troops have entered the territory of Montenegro. We learn from Paris that the Emperor has decided on the formation of ti/o camps, one of one hundred thousand men near St. Omer, and the other of fif i,y thousand men near Marseilles. Advices from Constantinople state that the Sultan is seriously indisposed. The Turks advanced from Kalafat to Krajova on the 1st iust., and it is ru mored that the Russians intend to eva c uate the whole of Bulgaria. The London Herald of the ?th, affirms, in a telegraphic despatch from its special correspondent on the Baltic, that on tht* 5th of May the British steam frigate Leopard, bearing the flag of Rear Admi ral Plumridge, came into Stockholm with news that the Russian fleet was coming out of Helsingfors. The commander-jn? chief instantly signalled the English floct, and made ready for sea. The Paris correspondent of the London Times writes as follows. The Emperor, it would seem, is determined to follow in the foot-steps of "my uncle." The establishment of the camp be tween Montreuil and St. Omer is thought to be quite as much directed towards Prussia as towards the Baltic or the Gulf of Finland, and, in case Prussia showed symptoms of foul play, it is not improbable that this army, joined by a formidable Belgian contingent, would find its way to the banks of the Rhine. Jt is whisper ed that the Emperor reserves to himself j the command of this fine army, and that he will establish his camp at Pont-de Brie, which his uncle had once his head quarters. He will have his Guards with him. The corps of 50,000 men at Mar seilles will, it is said, be commanded by General Rostolan. lhe following intelligence respecting the missing steamship City of Glasgow will excite hopes?but hopes, we fear, that will end only in bitter disappoint ment: There are now strong hopes that the long-missing steamer, City of Glasgow, has been heard from, and that she may yet be safe with all on board. A dis patch from Cork to the Messrs. Rich ardsons, states that on the 27th April, a large steamship, answering in all respects to the appearance of the City of Glasgow, was seen steering for the Azores, a dis tance of some four hundred miles there from. She was a large steamer, and al together like the City of Glasgow. There were strong hopes that it was her. The steamer City of Glasgow (sup posed to be) was spoken in latitude 45 degrees 30 minutes. She had a bark along side, and was steering towards the Azores. Her masts and other portions of the rigging were taken for firewood. The ship seen had yellow paddle boxes, and therefore induces the reluctant belief that she may not have been the City of Glasgow. Under the head of ' the very latest news,"' we find the following dispatch, dated Vienna, May 8 : The journey of Marshal Paskiewitsch to Kalarasca and Silistria haj^ been indef initely postponed. During the last week several confer ences have taken place between Count Buol, the Larl of Westmoreland, and M. de Bourquenay, at which conditions were agreed upon, to be offered by Austria to Russia, after the former has occupied Bosnia, the Herzegovina, and Upper Al bania. The conditions were said to be found acceptable by Baron Meyendorfl". They were regarded as being probably the final attempt of Austria to restore peace before she declares herself. The Constantinople correspondent of the London Times, under date of April 30, furnishes the following items: Lord Ragland has arrived here, and the unpleasantry in which the Porte was involved with the French Embassador has been satisfactorily arranged. The demand of General Baraguay cTHil liers has been conceded, and an apology for the delay has been made to him on the part of the Porte. There are fifteen thousand English now here, and as many more French ap proaching. The fleets were, on the 25th of April, before Sevastopol. Fifteen Russians merchantmen were seized before Sevastopol. A rumor is current at Galatz that the bombardment of Sevastopol began on the 28ih, but the statement requires con firmation. A part of the troops in the pay of llayder Pasha have received marching orders for Adrianople. *??
