Fu»c**ot, tbe Flnt Pretbyterlsn Charch.Richmond, iv-.lst. Ry Rer. T. V. Moore, P P " MAcr«*LAxr * Fmocmom. printer* ... . Tile discourse Is handsomely printed. »nd is one of the best we have erer seen, from its eloquent and echolarlv anthor. The text Is St. Mark 15, 43, "An honorable c<mn*ellor, which also waited for fbe Kingdom ofOod." In tbi* admirable discourse. Dr. M<v»*r prrx-ee-ls to show '"that Christianity, '0 far from l»eing incwisistent with the legs! profession, (M some suppose) has some peculiar claims npon It; »nd that, ao fsr is tbe religion of the Rllde from being an impediment in a lawyer's way, it is a thing •which be has peculiar reasons for embracing; and that whilst it i« a high tribute to hi# professional chtrscter, that he is "an honorable rt«inaelU<r," that climax is only reached in that ehnrncter, when we can *Jd, "h» also waits for the kingdom of God." That portion of the sermon which trests of "the important relation that the Bible holds to the history of b«man law," strikes ns as peculiarly interesting and instructive. Dr. Moore shows that not only tbe moral law delivered through the niouth of Moses, bears tbe mark of perfect wisdom and of inspiration, which mankind have never been able to change or to improve npon, bnt that in the civil and national law of the Jew*, which was Intended for them alone, will be found mnch that is ralnable in the civil and common law of later time*. We wish that we bad space to transfer to our columns the specifications of tbe various particulars in which the Mosaic laws have ®ot been surpassed by the enactments of any code, especially In regard to personal rights, and the transactions of ordinary life; the greater humanity of Hebrew legislation ; the Hebrew equivalent to the tri*l by Jury, and sensible regulations for the transmission of property ; the counterpart of tin checks and balances of our own constitutional law which Misted in the admirable adjustments of the llabrew Commonwealth. Suffice it to say that I)r. Moor* Justly maintains that tbe Hebrew laws have mingled with all the later flow of human history, and come throngh Babylon, Persia. Greece and Rome to the legislation of all modern times; that the "foots of the mighty system of modern law Teach not merely to the dark mould of the Middle Ages, tior to the pittars of the Forum, nor the rocky base ofthe Areopagus, but farther,deeper •till, until we And them twisted in living and in- separable embrace aronnd the fire clad rocks of Sinai." This excellent discourse is in all respects worthy its distinguished and esteemed author, and of the solemn occasion on which It was pronounced. Fair for St. Josephs Orphan Asylum The ladles of St. Peter's Church are now holding a Pair on Governor street, to enable St. Joseph's Orphan Asylum of this city to provide accommodations for the increasing number of orphnns whom their beneficent kindness has rescoed from poverty and suffering, and is preparing to become usefnl members of society. The number of orphan children In this asylum is forty-five, a number which has compelled the excellent ladiet who have them iu charge to put up additional buildings, and it Is to aid in defraying the cost of these, that the elegant Fair on Governor street, has been gotten up. We feel that 110 appeal is ueceasary to tbe humane and benevolent for assistance in such a cause. Whilst there is a great difference of religious belief atnongCbristians,there is oue point upon which they all agree, and that is, that no kind of faith which docs not bring forth fruits of charity aud of mercy, will avail at that tribunal in which every art of compassion done to the poor, the sick, the prisoner, for Christ's vaka, will be regarded as doue to him. What objects so stir up the fountains of hnnan sympathy, its young cbildreu, deprived in their most tender years, of their natural protectors, the little barks drifting helplessly about 011 the bleak shores of life, without pilot or compass? Who would not, if he could, call down to earth Him who walked on the waters of the stormy lake, and rescued the apostles from threatened shipwreck,aud iuvoke him to tread the angry billows of this sea of human sorrow, and with His own beneficent and almighty band, guide the orphau voyagers to a baveu of iecurity? Who would not rejoice once more to see this good Shepherd, rescuing those lambs from the wolves of poverty and vice, anil carrying them in His bosom ? Yet, all these, the benevolent and the merciful may do, in Hi* stead, and He will regard it as done by Himself. Sorely, charity bestowed under such auspices, as the deputies of Christ,and with such a recompense in view as He has himself held out, is rather a privilege than a duty, and will verify the words of Holy Writ—"lt is more blessed to givr than to receive." A holy apostle has said, "Pure religion and undented la to visit the fatherless and the widow in their affliction and to keep thyself unspotted from the world!" Let us then visit the fatherless children, by aiding the Orphan Asylums ol our city, both male and female. Let us pluck from the gloomy caves of destitution and ignorance, "many a gem of purest ray serene," which shall be an ornament and blessing to society, and throw a ray of Instro upon the dark valley of the shadow of death. Attractive Objects. We beg to call the attention of our readers to the Stereoscopic views advertised by Mr. Morris.— Jn so doing, wo are conferring a public benefit, for, apart from the pleasure derived from beautiful works of art, there must be a great saving of time and money In foreign travel, when every man can bring all the classical localities, renowned landscapes and magnificent specimens of architecture, which Europu boasts, within his own doors. To see the Alps, St. Peter's, Paris, Windsor Castle, or auy other object of European interest, through this stereoscopic medium, is quite as good as seeing them in reality. Most of our readers have seen the stereoscopic likenesses, whereby the daguerreotype picture viewed through glasses, is enlarged to the size of life. The nmbrot.vpes of foreign scenes aro In like manner magnified, and every minute feature of the landscape brought out, even to the very ruts of the carriage wheels. The anow-covered Alps,-the glaciers, the cities, rivers, monuments and churches of the old world are before you, accurately reflected in the faithful p.mbrotype, and looking as large and natural as life. It is almost impossible to particularize among so many striking objects, but the Coliseum, gt. Peter's, and the Cathedral of Cologne, are worth going to to see, and certaiuly to Morris's to buy. We had never imagined that there was anything in the works of man so tran sceudently beautiful as tho Cathedral of Cologne. Pers«nslllles In Prctrhlng. The Inhabitant* of State itrxet-tbe Wall street of Boston— most havo considered the Rev. Mr. Kinney Homewhat pi rsonal, if tho f»llowing be n correct report of his remarks : The Rev. Mr. Klnoe?-, in a on "Moral Honesty," at Boeton, a fair evenings since, says: "(lo down on State street,gather together all the moral honesty there i» to be found there, gi'e it a thorough sifting, and what a mournful spectacle would tarn npto view!" He farther dis-onrses on "Funeral Sermons:" "I eometimeg wlah people r„uld attend their own funeral*. Could sonic men hear the eulogies pronounced upon their characters for moral hon e*ty, after their deaths, how they whould shr'ck and bowl a» they lay in their coffins." University Literary Mag*slue We have received the .'an'iary number of the I'niversity Literary Magazine. It is really aa al mirabie number. There are some capital things in it. We congratulate tLe young gentleuieu connected with it upon tbia brilliant beginning of the year. The Concert To Night. Thalherg** laat grand concert to night! I*t as have a house like that of Tuesday night, the largest and most brilliant assemblage of the kind that waa aver eeen in Richmond. The great pianist equalled himself on that occasion, aud Vleul temps drew down thunders of applause. One more opportunity, and only one, of the most magnificent musical treat that Richmond has ever enjoyed. fAU or k »*«*,—A little farm in Ooocbland couuty, 2ft miles froiu Richmond, on the river r»ad, loQtalntug acrea—all high land, and not a tree ou It, was aold a few day* ago, at private sale, by Meriwether N.

On motion of Mr. Claiborne, the Kansas resolutions introduced by Mr. Coohiix, yesterday, were called up. In calling them np, Mr. C. said that even if the Lecompton constitntion contained the frauds mentioned yesterday by the Senator from Augusta, he shonld vote for the reception of Kansas with it. and luave to the federal judiciary the detection and prevention of those frauds. F.ven if it contained the odious tenets of the Mormons, there wa* nothing in ttie constitution of the United States to reject it. He thought the resolutions shonld be adopted. We owed it to those gallant Democrats of the North who had so freely sacrificed interest to principle, that we should stand by and encourage them in the position they had assumed on this question. The following are tbe resolutions: Rfnolrfd. By the General Assembly of Virginia, the conclusion to which the President of the United States has arrived, us expressed in his recent message, in favor of the admission sf Kansas into the Union under the Lecompton constitution, is just ami right. 2d. Henm-fd, That Congress has no right to look farther into the constitution submitted by the State ot Kansas, in its application to be admitted into tiiis Union, than to see that the said constitution is Republican in its form. 3d. ifrwrftwi, That it is due to the peace and harmony of this I'nion, that Congress should speedily admit Kansas as a State under the Lecompton constitution, without further conditions. Mr. Thomas asked a division of the question, which was done, and the first resolution was taken up. Mr. Denials was opposed to the first resolution, because it seemed to endorse, yet not endorse the action ofthe President. It was faint in its praise and doubtful in its eulogy. lie was also opposed to the second resolution, ami would offer the following as a substitute for the series: Jiisolvai, by the General Assembly of Virginia, That so much of the late annutil message of the President as relates to the admission of Kansas into the I'nion, with the Lecompton constitution, under all the circumstances couuected therewith, is right and proper. Mr. Warth favored the original resolutions. Mr. Stuart had prepared a series of resolutions to offer this morning, but finding from the feeling of the Senators that no substitute would be tolerated, he would not offer them. He saw that the dominant party had converted a national question intoa party question, aud in doing so they had treated the minority as aliens, and had excluded them from their consultation. Comparing dates, he thought he understood very well that these resolutions had been drawn up in caucus in reply to a letter which the executive of the State had lately written, professing to speak the opinions of the Democracy. Conceiving it, therefore, to be a family imbroglio, he would adopt the priuciple of non-intervention, aud ask to bo excused from voting on all questions, arising out of the resolutions. Mr. Coohill defended the resolutions at some length. Mr. Dknkalk withdrew his substitute. Mr. Douolass, in reply to Mr. Stuart, said that if the resolutions contained found principle and strict truth, he could not see what injury they could sustain from having been the offspring of a caucus; and he would appeal to the gentlemen of the opposition not to withhold their support. He would vote for the resolutions, not as a rebuke to the Executive of Virginia, for uttering his sentiments in his New York letter; but as a counterblast to the opinions there expressed. Mr. August said that i:«. giving his vote he did not wish to be understood guilty of the presump tion of rebuking the Executive for the expression of his opinion, an act to the performance of which he had a perfect right—but as the expression of his (Mr. A.'s) individual opiniou. Mr. Johnson offered the following resolutions, as substitutes for the Ist and 2d resolutions of the aeries: 1. Htm!(V(7, That the present attitude of the Administration in regard to Kansas, is approved by the General Assembly of Virginia, and is believed to be the geueral sentiment of the people of the State. I 2. H'snlmi, That it is the simple duty of Con- Kress to admit Kansas into the Union, us she has ! chosen to present herself, with the Lecompton Constitution, at once, absolutely and unconditionally, nave only the requirement of a republican form of government. Mr. Beale contended that there was no shadow of necessity for the substitute offered by the gentleman from Bedford. It enunciated no general principle. Mr. B. also appealed to the Senator from Augusta to reconsider his resolution. Mr. Sti \rt, in reply, stated the disadvantageous position the minority occupied,debarred from consultation with regard to the resolutions before them, and called now not, for deliberation, but for action. Spetlking of the 2d resolution, he cited an instance which might occur, in whii of the extreme Northwestern States, settled ers. who had not tho prejudice of race,might adopt a constitution placing the white and black races on an equal footing—a course of action which might send a free negro representative to the hulls of Congress. Mr. C'XiHU.l.—Tiie Drud Scott decision settles that point in declaringa negro not a citizen of the I nited States, therefore, he could not sit in Congress. Mr. Stuart—That decision has application only to States where the laws make a distinction between the white and black races. Mr. Beale—Could not Utah be admitted into the Union, and the very nest week hold a Convention and engraft in its constitution the monstrosities they now practice. Mr. Stiart—The gentleman is right: but that fact would not deter me resisting its admission as long as practicable on leg il grounds, and iusisting that at Itiast when Utah came inits constitution should be acceptable. Mr. Stuakt concluded by saying that had the majority offered to meet tho miuority for consultation, not as Democrats, but as Virginiaus, hk would have cheerfully gone iuto it, and acted with them in the fullest manner. As it was, lie should remain silent. The members who were In that caucus stood here bound to vote for the resolutions as they were, and it wonld be useless to attempt to modify or change them. Mr. Old denied that he was bound by the action of the caucus. He asked if the opposition had not held a caucus and concocted certain resolutions thereat ? Mr._C amp bell, like the gentleman from Powlia tan, (Mr. Old,) was not bound to vote for the resolutions, nor was anv member on the floor. If others more acceptable were produced lie wonld vote for them, lie asked the minority if tfiey had j any resolutions, to introduce them. Mr. Floyd did not feel bound by the action of fhe caucus, ami was prepared to vote for more Acceptable resolutions If they were offered. Mr. Thomas spoke at some length with regard to the exclusion of the minority from consultation. and the consequent injustice done them.— He would confess that the "opposition" members last night held a meeting, as stated by gentlemen but considering the previous action of the majority, they knew it would be useless to invite them to participate. Mr. T. concluded by offering a series of resolutions, the substance of which follows Ist. Denying the rhrht of Congress to refect the application of a territory to be admitted as a State into the Union, in consequence of its constitution not having been submitted to a direct vote of the people. 2d. Denying the right of Congress to reject tue app icatton in consequence of theadon ruf °.v V'T V" .? f hlaTpr )'- H ' * port of the social system of the State; affirming that it is the imperative duty of Congress, to admit Kansas with the Lecoiupton constitution unless it contains provisions in violation of the constitutionl Of the United States. 3d. That an* plan | or the admission of Kansas into the Union, which i Imposes conditions ori her people after the accept- I auce by Congress of her constitution, is dangerous to the peace of the Union, by continuing the agitation of slavery, and is subversive of the lea ling principles cf the Kausas Nebraska bill. 4th. The General Asteuibly of Virginia would hail the ad mission of Kausas with the l<ecompton constitution, ( provided it is not obnoxious to any of the objections stated,) as a renewal of the spirit of harmoiiy and conciliation which gave birth to the Union, oth. Urging the necessity of withdrawing thesubject of slavery from the halls of Congress, and confining it to the Mates where it properly belongs. The vote was then taken on the substitute offered by Mr. Johnson for the first lesolution of the series. It was defeated. Ayes, 12; nays, 30. The substitute of Mr. Johnson, for the 2d resolution. was then voted down. Ayes 14, nays 29. The vote was theu taken ou Mr. Thomas' substitute, aud resulted as follows : Area—Messrs.

On motion of Mr. Martis, the said bill and proposed substitute were laid upon the table, and ordered to be printed. The Lirutmanl Gorfr>irtrship.—The Senate bill to provide for filling vacancies in the office of Lieutenant Governor, etc., was taken up. a* the unfinished order of the day, and Mr. Massie. of Rockbridge, being entitled to the floor, addressed the House on the topics presented by a consideration of the subject. At the conclusion of his remarks, on motion of Mr. Uarboir. of Cnlpeper, the bill was amended by striking out that portion which provides fur tilling vacancies in the office of Commissioner of tbe Board of Public Works. On motion of Mr. Christian, the House adjourn ed. Dinner to Gen. Walker.—We understand a dinner will be given to Gen. Walker by some of the citizens of Richmond and members of the Legislature, this evening, at the American Hotel. Nine o'clock is the hour fixed for the entertainment.— From all we learn it will be a most interesting occasion. The foregoing information was received "after our outside form had gone to press, when it was too late to correct the statement in the local column, relative to Gen. Walker's departure from the city. Deceased.—The Norfolk Herald records the death of Mrs. Mary Dale Gore, at the advanced age of 90 years. She was a native of Princess Anne, and sister to the late Capt. Wm.

Mr. Warner's three oldest cbildreu perished in the flames. The pareuts, with their youngest child, were absent on an evening visit. The News from Mexico.—From the Mexican journals and letters received by the N. 0. Picayune, It appears that the recent revolutionary proceedings of Comonfort, assisted by Gen. Baez, in the city of Mexico, had been received with much disfavor in many of the interior portions of the country, and a large number of States had openly declared iu the most violent manner against the new order of things. Many ofthe principal towns, including Vera Cruz, had also joined in opposition to Comonfort,and a formidable military coalition was in process of organization to assist in the movement against him. Iu several portions of the republic, troops were already in motiou, aud another change in the executive power appeared at the date of the latest advices to be imminent. More Musical Celebrities.—We are gratified to learn that Mile Clarisse de lie ranger, a vocalist of high reputation, will giva a concert at Metropolitan Hall next Monday evening. It is said that she possesses a beautiful, clear sophrano. besides rare cotnic powers, which enable her to invest her concerts with the most delightful attractions. Madame Pelham, who is associated with M'lle Beranger, is also spoken of as an accomplished vocalist. her English ballads being rendered with remarkable sweetness and effect. A combination of talent with personal beauty, as in this instance, must be influential in securing a large attendance. The Approaching Twenty-Second of Fhkruart. — The indications are that tho military display, on the occasion of the inauguration of the Washington Statue, in this city, will be very fine. The Governor, we learn, has issued orders to all his aids to report themselves in uniform at head'piarters on the morning of the 22d. Major General Taliaferro, of Gloucester, will be in command.
