    A LECTURE POSTPONED. – Hinton R. Helper, the infamous author of the “Impending Crisis,” advertised extensively in New York last week that he would lecture in Clinton Hall on “slave and free labor.” When Helper entered, half an hour after the fixed time, attended by the notorious Professor Hedrick, there were present 7 policemen, 6 reporters, 4 ladies and 33 gentlemen. The lecture was indefinitely postponed, and the [auditors?] (except the dead-heads) had their quarters returned at the door.
