Well may we perceive in it when Saten depart irem aa Iioswu ilimlaii laialls fnllfisr . --' The subsidy to thb company was granted for the benefit of Ireland ; but scarcely had tbe company started when tbe directors, la an evil hour, ttstsriad to the ttntrathful and scldsh advioa of their Liverpool officials, and ths attempt followed to convert the line into a purely Uvwrpool affair. Such a series of miama-najrament and extravagance as followed I Unlike the Canard nmnanv. tha onmnanv had no depots of Eng lish coab In America, and I understand they had to pa 31 per ton tor inferior American eoai, two and a half . . . . .... a . a") wa TU- tons of watch was not equai v ana wa w v ti expenses on the homeward voyage were mere than doubled by floes, delays, && Then comes the outward voyage, calling at Galway, thooee to Liverpool, back again to Galway, from wheoos they left for St John's! sgaiu more than doubling tbe expenses. And unques tionably tbe eccideot to the Anglia was occasioned by the vassal starting from Liverpool instead of Galway. One of the dixtciors, month ago, an bononrabb Irishman, went over to bmdon and told hb brother dirsetors that he would resign unless tiiere was a thorough reform; to thb they aasented, and agreed to start the vessels from Galway.i The Columbia and Hibernia were coaled, victualled, Ac, and sailed from then ; and, be It observed, it was on the questicn-of coaling ths Liverpool offiebb induced the directors to break faith with the Irish public, by representing the Impossibility of coaling ia the Galway Bay. I regret to say the directors have not carried out their profeasions respecting the Liverpool offldeb; thorough reform was promised, but not observed, and until such takes place there b not the slightest caaaee for the company. If the project waa judiciously and economically monaieed wLh a desire for ito'auecess. no donbt it would succeed, as the Una b becoming more end men popular, aad the veessb had numbers of passengers and as much goods as they would take. Wishing thb may catch the eye of tbe directors wbo have still the power of actios: faithfully, br airing the project another fair and judicious trisLI am, sir, your obedient servant, . . jl oHaHKMniJiait.

GLASNEVIN B0 ADS AND FOOTPATHS. . TO THE EDITOR OT THE IRISH TIMES. Sir. Sever si letters from different correspondents have, from tune to tune, appeared la your journal on thb subject, but nothing has yet been done to remedy tho evils complained of ; the roads and loot pains are still in ths most disgraceful state, and I cannot understand the reason of ths supineness of the proprietors and ratepayers In not Instituting an inquiry into tha matter. We know it befits ths dignity oi great people to move slow, but It cannot be that they on all satisfied to pay 190 ot thaw money for nothing, and suffer the tenibb IncooTsnbnce of being obliged to travel through the bogs into which the public highways have been turned by the moostrous Job which has been lately perpetrated upon them. Whose fault tt b I will not undertake to aay. but I do say that an immediate inquiry should be made, so as to fix the blame on the proper parties, and adopt means to compel them to de justice to the ratepayers and the public. I conceive that the members of the council of the Boyal Dublin Society, particularly those wbo wen Uvourabb to the pubiic opening of their Botanic Gardens, nave a duty to perform in thb inatter, in seeing that those whom they wish to benefit have a proper approach to tbe gardens, instead of being obliged to wads ancle-deep in mad in tha piacea formerly occupied by comparatively good foetpaths. The remedy I would auggest ia, that a public meeting of the proprietors and ratepayers should be called; that the Boyal Dublin Society ahould be requested to lend their Lecture Room in the Botanic Gardens for the purpose, and that tbe members of the council and tbe other gentlemen I ban alluded to should attend, and join in making an im-madiaU investigation into the cause of the evil, and in adopting proper means to remedy it A meeting got up under such auspices would be son to succeed in accomplishing its object It has been found necessary to establish a " Ratepayers' Protection Society" In another district of the suburbs. Why should we not take the initiative from this, and have a similar society ia thb district, when it b much more required ? Earnestly Impressing on all concerned the absolute necessity of united, prompt, and vigorous action in thb matter, I am, sir, your very obedient servant, Proorkss. DR. PICE'S LECTURES.

The natural philosophers of olden nmes wen pretenuons m tne prooiems snout wnicn tney busied themselvea. They occupied taeniae! ves very much with endeavours to discover the philosopher's stone, and in their reeearches after the panacea which was to can all the His to which flash is heir to. But a good and great chang has come over the spirit ef philosophy, and on the ruins of alcbymy has grown up a noble struc ture, a real science, that of cnemistrv. which deals with questions relating to all -if, organic and Inor ganic, oi wnicn our globe is composed, and which teacbes us that la the composition of the commonest thing, and of the most common place phenomena there an discoveries to be made which tend greatly to our advantage. Information on these subjects will be communicated to yon this night by one who is able to teach. (Hear.) I hope you have all come prepared to listen to tbe lecture which will be interesting and pro- table, i anew l am by no means an impartial nearer. I am bound by no ordinarv ties to your lecturer to night. I am his colleague for many years, and I claim tbe privilege oi a mensahip to um, and t weuia oe asnantea to asy I was an impartial hearer. I begot yon all here present that you will assist him, as far as yon eon. In performing the teak he has to discharge to-night, by being good liateners. It will be sweensarr la the course ec the lecture to darken the room, and it Is de ars bis that you should, tn the interim, preserve sfleneo and quiet. (Hear.) Yon will excuse my mentioning this. X can hardly suppose that fa an assembly of this Mod, gathered together to hear this lectors, then would be anyone who would miscalculate the nature ef our object to-night as to de any thing to interfere with the comfort of those who came to learn, or the comfort of mm who stands up to address ua (Hear.) Excuse me, if I detain yon for a moment by saying a word er two expressive of the anxious feelings with which I, as a minister, look upon such on assemblage as this engaged in pursuits of this nature. We shall be led by the lecturer to contemplate the gnat advantages which an yearly, nay, almost daily, made in the tnvtstigsiicn of nature, by this uvestigauoa the dominion of man over nature is greatly increased. New lustre Is added to tha crown which he Is permitted to wear ; new forces an developed, end these rorces an piacea within nts control ior fox or for evil. The powers of fln snd water, trace thought antagoubtic, on now made to work together, obedient to his control, snd to carry us, swift as winds, over land and sea Fresh triumphs an every day added to the list of those which our natural philosophers have gained. Bat let us never forget that in these triumphs of the philosophers over nature let us never forset in the midst of, and over all, these material things then hangs a token of change, and decay, and death, end that outside tbe narrow circle of what we call light then lies an in Hatty of darlcuafs. Let us, therefore, engage in those pursuits with the humility of the great Newton, who spoke of himself as garnering pebbles by the aids ot an ioBnite ocean. Let us never forget that whiU we an uvestigatiog the laws of nature, there is over aad through all a Lawgiver to whom we owe a constant love and fear, and let us never forget this either, tbst the ictalliganee which is expended on the invealigation of the laws of nature b one of those talents for which we shall have to gin an account The trium( hs of the philosopher may lead tn a vato glory. Let us not forgot them is but one thing in which we have a right to glory, and that one thing is the Cross of Jesus Christ. (Loud applause.) Professor Apjohn, who was received with loud ap-pUase, then proceeded to deliver his lecture. Be said that when first requested to deliver the lecture he had hesitated to do so, but when he considered the purposes for which the society wsa founded, tbe great good which it had already accomplished, and the greater good which it was likely to achieve In the future, ha felt that 1m could not decline the request without laying up a great J -wi w awnproiu. ior oiuueif. it was nie lounuon to explain to them, as far as it was possibls within the compass of a single lecture, water and its eletaenta, the true theory ot combustion, and, lastly, the dynamic theory of beat. It was unnecessary to tell them, what every schoolboy know, that bodies wen divided by the chemist Into simple aod compound, that the former were comparatively few In number, and that the latter ware practically almost Innumerable; that the ancients thought then were only four elements, earth, air, fire, and water, and that of these tares were long sgo found out to be composite bodies. Before he concluded, he oseant to show that the fourth of these ooee-caUed elements, fire, was net a variety of matter, but merely a modification of motion. The lecturer proceeded to ex plain the nature ot tbe two elementary smsea exvrea and hydrogen, ot which water is exposed. The former of these Is one of the most abundant bodies la nature, forming a fifth of the atmosphere, eight-ninths oi the weight of the water upon the earth's surface, and a third of the w ight of the earth's crust. Oxygen has numerous snd powerful affinities, and dischargee a oust important part in tha economy of nature. There an two substances from which it is comsnonly ehulned, one a black ore of mingatwee, and the other, chlorals of potash, which is a perfect raagssine ot oxvren. Having obtained a quantity of oxygen by experiment, Dr Apjohn said it would require on entire volume to describe tbe properties of this wonderful gaa Like ot- mospnenc air. its volume rartes under pressure. Its union with ether substances b generally accompanied with light and best. Thb fact tbe lecturer Droved by Immersing a taper In a jar of oxygen, when the light became many times brighter. A piece of carbon ignited at one end when placed in tbe same jar, burst out into a bright flame, and a red hot iron win became heated to white light, and gave out brilliant sparks while in process of combustion. He then proceeded to describe hydrogen, which occurs In all living bodies, aad In many of ths commonest substances with which we an acquainted. It forms one-ninth of the weight of atmospheric air. Having referred to the more usual methods of obtaining hydrogen, Dr Apjohn showed that it might be obtained from a current of steam directed upon on iron wire at an elevated heat, and also from the strange metal sodium discovered by Sir Humphrey Davy, wbieb once cost sixpence a grain, but might now be purchased for twenty shillings a pound, lie then described tbe use ot hydrogen either in a pure form, or in the form of coal gas, in producing the ascent of balloons, and referred to tbe celebrated ascent of the French mtiiti Gay Jusaac, aad tbe more recent aveents, for tbe purpose of scientific obesrvatioe, of Mr GUlsber and others. He then proved by simple experiments that tho burning of hydrogen tonne water, by its immediate combination with ths oxygen of the aix. Oxygen formed eight-ninths of the weight of water, and hydrogen ooe-nioth, but tbe volume of tba latter was double that ot tbe former. Dr Apjohn harirg stated that the iWceat of ail beat with the excepli4i oi that produced by tbe gal rank entrant, woe the beat evolved during ths combination of oxygen and hydrogen to form water. He alluded to the oxy-hydrogen blow-pipe, and the lime-light invented by Captain Drummond. Uaviog briefly described a few of the simple properties of water, snd the different kinds ef water known as mineral springe, bo briefly explained the fact that Instead of following the rule of eapanaton by beat and coo traction by cold, which eppliee to all other bodier, water ceases to contract when the cold te below 39 degrees of the Fahrenheit thermometer and begins to expand. Wen tt not for thb property, all the water converted Into Ice, even In temperate climates, would sink te the bottom, snd masses of Ice would accumulate in rivers and the sea Uself which no solar heat would ever melt. Haying also referred to the fact that water requires a greater quantity of calorie In order to make It pass from tbe solid to the liquid state than any other substance, he proceeded to Illustrate this by many beautiful and delicate experiments chiefly exhibited within the spectrum produced by tbe K no-light upon a large sheet. Ths ex penmen ts would not admit ot explanation, but they wen eminently' sncceanfuVene aecM4 eolr. having oecvjred. At the conclusion of his lectors be referred to the two theories of heat the material theory, which was now being given up by sdsntifio men, and the dynamic system, which is generally accepted. Dr Apjohn lucidly explained thb dynamic system, and illustrated it by a few very nmarkable experiments, and concluded an able and intereeting ad drees amid loud and prolonged applause. Mr Joseph If spier moved a vote of thanks to Dr Apjohn for ab elaborate, interesting, and Instructive lecture. The Rev Dr Butcher ascended the motion, which, on being put from the chair, was carried with acclamation.

In Ireland itself, ether braes, and e brosaet. .programme, will probably, claim and have preoedence. . At all events, we perceive that parties are beginning to marshal their Jones, and that candidates are appearing on the stage, ft b sometimes useful and instructive to torn our eyas towards tne sister island to see which way the wind mows, for, in sdditlon to the issues oommoniy in dispute, then are sometimes special topics -which, though perhaps not of eUrect aad pressing mterset to us on thb aide of St ueorgeis uhannei, navsrtiisiess claim our attention ana erii4evon?iympjiav For instance, the other day we pet our hand on a nuniberof tbA-Drogkeia Coarer. vans, containing an, article which is in some measure calculated to excite one's local curiosity. for we found that it related to the candidature for that town of Mr Benjamin WliUwtvth, of thb city. - Beyond some vague knowledge that then are gentlemen of Radical proclivities among us who bear that name, we were not aware that any of them were in quest of senatorial bonoum, and, if we may judge from What we hear of the state of parties in progheds, we are obliged to conclude that Mr. Whitworth has been kept rather in the dark by lib political friends on that important subject, or that, it be reauy oo aspire to a seat in ParUamsat, he would have sought that envied distinction at tbe hands of some other oonstituency. . Under these circumstances, we may well be excused for doubting whether Mr. Benjamin Whitworth really intends to "run" his Haiinam against the uraserva tive spirit of Progheda on the one band and the Roman Catholic spirit on ths other. . There can he no donbt that the friends of Cantain Knox, the Conserva'lve can didate, whose valuable services to ths party, by the way, eminently entitle him to their warmest devotion, will make the most strenuous efforts to return him, and (we will add) that tha probabilities of success are strongly la their favour. On the ether band the Roman Catholics, if they respond In any degree to the spirit which animates the old and thoughtful, and, as tha Tunes calls them, the M respectable" members of their church In Enxlacd. wtll do their utmost to prevent the return of rny candidate wbo b a Radical , dissenter of the Bright and Cobden school the school, ia fact, which propsgates those doctrines and pushes forward those revolutionary plans that have proved such a scourge to the "patrimony of bt Peter" in Italy. It b tolerably clear, therefore, that if Mr Benjamin Whitworth really do enter tha political arena In Drogheda, he b very likely to be ocorchod between two antipathetic fires ; snd we should think it not improbable that, on reflection, he will elect to remain In that privacy in which he appears to be so well esteemed. Hen and there we And other todj cations of coining contests ia the Irish boroughs, and, although, for the most part, they tarn upon the old issues, with local and peculiar questions superadded, w shall not be surprised to find the line of demsreatioo, so strongly and sharply drawn in Drogheda, stretching into other constituencies and forming a barrier between the contending parties not very easily to be leaped by either. One impression has certainly been derived already from what b passing that in Ireland the next general appeal to the country will result in giving additional strength to the Con- servtiivs party in the House of Commons. . DROGHEDA INTELLIGENCE. OSOX OUR OOERRSrOEDElfT.) Drogheda, Wednesday. The Trix itt -street Geisvaivoe. For upwards of a year the poor inhabitants of Trinity-street, Horse's-lant, and the adjacent streets, have in vain tried to get a remedy for providing against the flowing of intolerable nuisances from Chester-lane and Horee's-lane into a beautiful spring near the Dome, from which the inha bitants of thb locality procure their water for domestic purposes. Fourteen months since a memorial, signed by Francis W Leland, Esq, and several other gentlemen interested in ths comfort of the poor of the place, was presented to ths Corporst'OD, preying that some remedy be adopted to carry the filthy nuisances Into the river by means of a sewer, to prevent Its mingling with the spring. Though tbs corporation ordered their engineer to direct his attention to ths matter and report thereon, and received this gentleman's report, in which he stated, In a sanitary point ef view, the p raver oi the i rialists b desirable." vet thb valuable well b suffered, especially in rainy weather, to be the repository of all tne nuisances of tne two nitntest lanes in urogneoa. For the past week frequent complaints have been made by these poor people, which caused several persons to visit the locality and judge for themselves. Amongst those wen Mr Alderman Biylsn, who has at ell times been most attentive to the grievances of the poor, and assiduous in nusung application for iminecuale remedy. INSPECTION OF TBE NEW STEAM ENGINE FOR THE FIRE BRIGADE. An Inspection was made yeeterday in the principal square, Trinity College, of a new steam engine, built by a firm tn Birmingham, and recently pure baaed by tba Corporatija Tor tbe use of the Dublin Fire Brigade. Tha Inspection took place to pros an oe of the Lord Lieutenant, who arrived shortly after three o'clock, accompanied by Meto-Geoeral Larcom, and Captain CocksraU, ADC. His Excellency was received try the Vraenble the Provost, Very Bev Dr Todd, Sir William Wilde. Sir John Gray, as Chairmen of the Water- crorks CouuniUee, and several members ot ths Corporation. By thb time the several fire engines In the city arrived, and Captain Ingram with the Fire Brigade, all eetng communicated with oy teiegrapa trom toe principal station in the main street, as though a fire had actually broken out in tbe College. They arrived on the ahortast poeable notice. Two or three thousands ed to witness the coarstsonj, hut all were not permitted within tbe College precincts, where the students were ia the aggregate, and indulged in a variety of practical jokes. They cheers! lustily and made tho proceedings rather lively, uaiortanateiy at the penos fixed tor the inap-ction, a very heavy shower of sleet descended and caused considerable inconvenience. It was. h waver, not of long continuance. Steam was got ap as quickly as possible, aad when tbe steam engine was in working order a huee was attached, and it certainly sent a voiuase to a considerable elevation, psasing ever the cross on the top of the campaneUe, a height ef 96 feet, higher perhaps than any house la tbe city. Ultimately lour boss wen attached and a otreaa of water wss poured at ths same elevation, which certainly would be sufficient to extinguish any conflagration. Ia 10 minutes after lighting the are dU lbs steam was obta ned ; in 101 minutes the engines started with jet, water rrtssare 40 Ibi ; steam rise rapidly to 80 Ibe, and a seven-eighth jet was then need ; steam rose to 1 10 lbs, water pressure to 100 lbs, with a one-in eh jet; 120 lbs stesa averagH-2 1UU lbs water ; tne wind o owing very high, prevented thb jet reaching its altitude ; two f jet were next connected ; 85 lbs steam, 65 water; four jets respectively were next used ; 3 eight-sixteenths and 1 ten-sixteenths, 95 lbs steam and 80 lbs water. It manifestly would have propelled the water to a much greater elevation, wen It not for a strong wind which prevailed and wittered somewhat tbe upper current. It required two of the brigade men to hold ths nozzle of each hose, so considerable was the force. In addition to the ad vac tags ot tbe engine being abb to send water great an elevation, the stream is conti nuous, provided, of course, tbe water supply admits it, which it certainly did yeeterday at tbe coliege, tbe water being supplied from a huge tank or reservair underneath where the engine wss placed. Some littie practice b required to render the brigade men quite oa ail with tbe management of the engine, which seems to be simple tn its construction. It is, perhaps, not quite heavy enough, for it seamed to oscillate a good deal when steam wss up to the full. It is drawn by four powsrtul no rasa, it does net require saon than ten minutes to kindle the Are In the boiler, which could be easily accomplished by the men in atten dance on it wails driving to tho scene of a cenflagretion. The Lord Lieutenant ramalnoa lor a considerable time, and anmed pleased at the result of the impaction. ST. STEPHES'S-GREE.V (DUBLIN) BILL. The following rep art on tbia bill of Committee No. 8, was read a first time at the Town Council's meeting on Monday : u We, on tbe 14th Dec. received a parliamentary notice, dated Uth Dee, 1863, of an application for a bill to open Stephen e-green as a public park, transfer tbe estate In the green to the Commissioners of Public Works, Ireland, and empower them to levy rates and charge upon, and thereout pay the existing debenture debt end interest thereon, &e.

"The Commissioners confidently rely on the Corporation opposing such an invasion of ths rights of property as b contemplated by thb bill, not only In their capacity as landlords of the Commissioner, but as well In their position as protectors of the right and property of the citizens at large.

These pamphlets, which were entitled " The Voice of the Bar," and published in 1850, created a sensation at the time. The gentleman to whom the work is entrusted is on able and trenchant writer, and will do the literary part of it every justice. ahb i KLvxKTON vASB.'vn Aneedsy major the Hon.

ENTERTAINMENT TO WILLIAM THOMPSON, Ijia MAJBAUrUfc Uf IOJU UiaOi&A bans, Dublin. rasaasTATiox or plats. A large number ef the friends ef Mr William Tboma- son, late Manager of the Ulster Bank in this city, and formerly secretary of that bonk in Belfast, entertained him at Spaddacini's Riyal Hotel, on Friday evening last, the 29th ultimo, on U occasion of hie leaving Dublin, aaauming the duties of chief officer of the London and South African Bank, at the Cape of Good Hope, to which impejtant and responsible position he has recently been appointed. - Tha chair waa occupied by Wm Allan, Esq, magistrate, Head Police Office, Dublin, and the vice chair by Charles Copland, Esq, Manager of the Boyal Bank of ireiano. After the cusiomarv level toasts had been riven and duly honoured by the company, Tha Chairman rose, and in an able, eloquent, and feeling address, proposed the health ot the guest of th vecing, Mr William Thompson. In doing so be expressed the profound regret felt by himself and that geotiemau's many other friends ia Dublin at bis departure from this country, and passed a merited eulogists upon his conduct, character, and abilities, ne referred the high Miimation in which he (Mr Thorn Deon waa held by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance, or with whom his busuess broutrht him in contact during his residence in Dublin, and observed that be hod never known ai instance of a public officer leaving this city wbo carried with him a larger share of the affections and good wishes of tbe dtisens of every creed and class. (Loud applause.) Indeed, it was to him a problem not easily solved how bis friend had managed, within the comparatively short time ho had been a resident in Liuoiin. to acquire so large an amount of popularity. He (the Chairman) supposed, however, that they must in a great meiisure attribute It to that urbanity of demeanour, kintaly disposition, and borusty of purpose which marked his conduct in every action ot his public and private life. (Applause.) Whilst, however, they must all deplore the loss they would suatain by his departure from amongst them, and deeply regret his removal to a aisxant colony, tney could not bat experience some coosoiation from knowing that the responsible post which ha had accepted, whether looked at in a pecuniary point of view or otherwias, was not unworthy h sue weu-anown aouutea ana great experience tn benkicg. (Hear, hear.) He waa triad to obeerre so many of the beads and leading officers of the banking ostabliih menrs of Dublin there that evening, evincing as noma generous leeung towards their guest, which, whilst It was flattering to him, was highly creditable to themelves,udb wusnnMr Tlvxmpeott would ap. predate it as one ot the most pleajing features of that evenings proceedings. (Applause.) Tbe ehalrman, In conclusion, tendered to Mr Thompson the smeere and heartfelt wishes of all present for tha roc cess, welfare, and future happiness of himself and family. Mr Thorn peon replied, ex preening his warmest thanks for the very flattering terms in which the Chairman had proposed his bealtb, and for the kind manner in which his frienue had received It Tbe proceedings of that evening, as wall as the many ether substantial proofs which he had received of the kindness and good feeling of the dtixens of Dahlia towards him, would never be effaced from his mefnory. 1 The Chairman then formally presented to Mr Thompson a costly aod beautifully designed service of plate, richly ebsaed and engraved. Each article contains Mr Thompson's coat of anas ronod which is the following iiiacription : To William Tromi-sost, Esq., Ulster Bank, From a few of bis Friends ; Dublin t ' January, 1864. He (the Chairman.) again nee and read aa address to Mr Thompson, stgned by the principal merchaota, bankera, gentry, msgistrates, and heads of commercial Arms in Dublin, which, together with Mr Thompson's reply thereto, will be found w exfeaso in our advertising columns. The Chairman then. In suitable terms, proposed tbe health ef the vice-chairman, Charles Copland, Esq, Manager of the Royal Bank. Mr Copland, in replying, expressed the sincere pleasure he experienced in assisting to pay so just and well-merited a tribute of respect to the character and worth of his friend, Mr Thompson. He folly concurred in all that the chairman had said in reference to tbe merits and good qualities of their guest, wbo, he deeply regretted, was about to leave them. Ha sincerely wished ptim that roeess In the new sphere In which he was about to enter which he so eminently deserved (Applause.) Several other toasts were) given and responded to during the evening.
