DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE DEBATE ON ORATORY AND POETRY. THE Debating Society has been engaged for four successive nights in discussing the ques- tion, " Whether Oratory or Poetry has the greater influence on Society ?" and if we may judge from the crowded and respectable au- diences, and the great number of strangers' tickets which, we undei stand, has been dis- posed of, the subject has excited no little interest. Mr. E. FLETCHER opened the debate' in favour of Poetry, and rested his first argument upon the extensive and almost universal eilest» of poetry which is more or less read by all who can reaa, whilst the îffecl« of Oratory are temporary and evanescent, terminating, in almost every instance, with the delivery of the speech.

In the case of inob oratory, su...
