Our citizen were furnished with an in tellectual treat, on last evening, by this eminent lecturer,' on the nbovn subject. Mr. Gough'g enthusiasm, infused into the lecture, held Jils fiearersi scU-bouud qnril it was broken only by the rdpturuiia ap plause of his audience. Ills definition, of curiosity was a "desire to know what Is id the future,' disposition to .discover the unknown, by research and Inquiry; a de sire to gratify the senses with what Is new or unusual.'!, ; ,' , This motive It was that Impelled a Co lumbus to project his schemes and projects until they culminated In the discovery of a new world. Curiosity led a Watts to In vent an engine for the application of steam ; Morse to chain and xubdtie the lightning in Its erratic course, until now it )md tie come $ doily occurrence, for tho former to drive the ship across tho ocean, and the latter W' flash"' the liewffomcohtiuent to continent, far heuoaUt its surging hJUow4 . Curiosity lea tne 'astronomer to explore the regions of Space and bring to science. Ids new found worlds, while the chomlst, geol ogist and physiologist were delving into the mysteries of the structure of our own planet, and its inhabitants; This same curiosity, when perverted from ils legiti mate channel, led to th many siijierstltlons of every age, cropping out in the signs nnd omens of astrology, the, witches iiud old wives' fables, and the many other frivolities of belief which made up tho train of its attendants. His appeal to the youug men and women to live -worthy of their high rank In the scale of being, was soul-Inspiring, and su perbly grand In Its application. They were not the paslng shadows of a mo ment's duration, but destined to live to eternity, forever approaching the-"unapproachable,'' and destined to have their "curiosity" ever gratified by new attain ments in the scale or prngressioivnud at each step to be greeted witli the truth that 'it doth not yet appear what we yet shall be" In the onward match to glory aud true perfection. . Mr. Uough's ability to caricature hUldeas upon the stage is unsurpassed. Tho pre sentation of his suhjijct we; think,. Jiewcver. was overwrought, and the force aud affect of his theme waa weakened if not lost upon his audience, by the violence and iinuatur alnessof his gesticulation, which at times was Inelegant ami almost paluful to his hearers.. Ills illustrations were at times ex tremely ludicrous, and his hiUof the most happy character. We think Mr-; dough's visit will give a new impetus to legitimate research for knowledge; cause many to dis pense with some of the frivolities of opin ion, and promote tu suuuea u a nmv en terprise in our midst the "Young Ileu s Heading Boom Association,'', ,.",,'..
