Let thro (we repeat) uu r own tnanafacture havt the preference. Ma. CoLKatAa. Notwithstanding all the vanity there is in the world, there are not a few people who have just ' a many reasons lor their opinions, as there are gnat folk woo nave supported utem ; ana there ' are verfew to whom error does not seem tome - what snore respectable, anil truth tomewhat t jnore dignified, whea recommended by high a ' .thorir.i .. - - " ' ' Ko person will deny that tho name of the pro. .foot rare rn or of tha state of New. York hai at tained so high an estimation, "that even if he abnnld lend its sanction to DrinciDle ever so er - , rooeaas, there are few people who would doubt . the authority of to passport, it u because we . .do not doubt the extent of thi authority, and are. . not inclined to question its just vajee, that are esrceedinjly ttosirou of eparating it from error, at a thing with which no one can wish its . affiance, who it not willing to sacrifice the inter - . tsof the state to hi personal prejudice. . - , In tha late speech of bis excellency, there is raw matortal wough for all tho political estayt which tho press can ?ur forth during the win - ' tor, but we have tfavt only for a few comments ) two topic which H embraces the one retard imprisonment tor debt, the other the en - muragement of domestic manufactures. ; ft will, 1 hope, be taken for granted, that in what I have to say on those part of the gover nor speech which concern the topics abovemen - 'tianed. rather on the topics themselves, I am w awaking the language of a party, and that v om bat my telfi responsible for the remarks lkatomak. i - - The following is that part of his excellency 'Speech which concern imprisonment for debt . ; "la the case of creditor and debtor our la Mi fepartod from its general policy, and has au - . loomed the former to wield tho power of pun - - ishmentty the imprisonmrnt of the latter for a default m the pa vaeat ol debts, without consi - ' Aering whether the failure m impuUble to mil fortune or to baud. . Within a few year thi eod no oeea relaxed, and the debtor has been liberated from close incarceratioo, and bdoaitted to the benefit of extensive limits oo giving security that ke will not depart from them. The con - 1 aoqnenc - is that it entangles and holds only the poor and forlorn, while those favoured with friends or opulence sac.pe from its severity. If the kgulatoro (hall consider it expedient to - change the present system and exempt the unfortunate debtor from the penalties of imprison ment, riiorous provisions ought to bo a - Ion ted for the punishment of fraud, and the rights of creditor should be fortintd by the terror olcri tmnal punishment. But if it shall be deemed nnadvisaMe to proceed to that extent, the poor , debtor confined within the walla of a prison oqght at least to be supported by hit unrelenting creditor, and the repetition of srenrs at which Humanity shudders ouht no longer to disgrace ur country." " Let us first cee wht there is here, and then examine it accuracy. ILt excellency states that oar law give creditors the power of punishing debtors, whether their failure of payment proceed from miilbrtune or fraud that "this cod ba been relaxed within a few yean" Bow r the aobtor has been liberated from rime incarceration and admitted to the bent fit of ex tensive limits" mat the consequence is, that " it (the code) entangles and hold only the poor and forlorn, while those favoured with friends or opulence escape from its s verity Hit excel lency afterwards (peaks of exempting the unfortunate debtor from the penaltie of imprisonment. The want of clearness manifest in this paragraph, may lead us to the true cause of the inaccuracy with which his excellency has treated this important subject. W are persuaded that he ba not given it suthcient attention and exam - uwvnu tin excellency Has placed in a very Mnguiar lignt tne recent relaxation oTlhe law, concerning imprisonment, considering that he eemt quite inclined to abolish it altogether. The couequeuce of tho enlargement of the limits of the jail it, bo says, that the law entangles only the soor aod farUrn, while those favoured with fritnat or tmtJence escape from it seventy, If his excellency means that the poor are (till entangled by the law j that is, kept in ctoee con finement, he is certainly mistaken. The poor are tho who cannot pay their debts, or, if you please, those debt for which they are imprison ed, we all know bow many of these are im prisoned and do give bonds forh limit. . If it was intended to say that those who are poor and Herts, that it friendless, are entangled and held" and ex the present system, thi description include comparatively a (mall number; this expression, to say the least, is very careless ; but we hope, moreover, to shew hereafter, by a reference U the law, that it ha no foundation whatever. Agaia - U excellency has, as we humbly apprehend, made a vistake, or created some confu - tea, by associating ;wo very differeot classes of 'people, who escape (he severity of the law thoso who are favored with friends, or oon. lane." There certainly can be no objection to , tb law oo the prt of those who are in favor of a mild system, on account of its extending its le nity to thaw who hive friends; and ret one Would suppose that even this was disapproved by the Fovemor, from hi cntmectinx these two fleet of people together; and from his placing them hi pparont contrast with the poor and forlora." - ft or is it oasy for tho owulenl itb'or to avoid Ike severity of the law. If ho directly or indi rectly max Ft use or hi weaiA to furah the necessary aecarity to the tberiff, that wealth, can - act oftoa bo concealed, and tho bw girt the dram powf to larce, ji jroo t&t dtbtor, (al i ? T1 under esA) Lie other person uooerc ovi or. wit,or any by hi awn aengament wmcn uoersne imprisomneat, or by th of the magistrate, whSch takes from him all be ha withemt giving bias hi liberty - - ' Wo now com to the principal objocuoa a - gainst this part of tho goVeraort pooch, and we shall stata it very briefly. - Hi excellency slate, that our law give creditors the power of pua - ishing by imprisonment unfortunate Jretor that eTen after aU tho relaxatioa : of thai i ejdo, th poor ni forlorn are still entaegled and hold by it. If this be to, we should bavo no hesitation to making a caoro exteneiv om of hi excellency's laognago than he ba dona, and to lay that security ought instantly to be provided a - gainst a M repetition of scenes at which humanity, shudders.'' But any body who will have tho goodness to tarn to tho first volume of the revised law, page M9. will see that any person charred hi execu tion, for any turn less than $300, may, (" wundar1 to ieiirtr up U nu etleUe) t ny rtmc, and if for any (Tester sum, after three menAs, Ctition tho proper court for his discharge, and discharred in fourteen dart thereafter, with out the assent of a sinele creditor. Now, with out intending tho t lightest disrespect to our chief magistrate, wo ask any person whether bo mini not have forrotten thi law. The law might doubtle be amended by avoiding certain delays as to charging debtor in execution ; but who can assert that the law allows creditor to puntiA their debtor. Thi i an abuse oi terms. 1 he law does, and ought, and must In tho tatui e of thing, detain tho person long euuugn to ascertain whether there bo not a concealment of. pro perty. To conclude, we should have been much bet tcr pleased, awl wo think every body else would, if tho governor had recommended a 'repeat of that absurd law which prevents a forfeiture of bonds given for th a liberties of jails, provided tne debtor .return within the bout before cuit it brought. . , , ' 11 Tithe Editor of the Evening Fol. SIR The often . reiterated remark, " that the corporation of thie city mako laws, and either forzet or nezlect to enforce U on," appear to bavo lost but little, if any, of its truth ; for, If yon notice either the tide - walk covered witn ice, or the sawyer cutting and piling wood in the way of passengers,' or twenty other auniur in stances, it indeed appear a if there were no Uw against such nuisances, or u there are, want of energy prevent their due) execution. Whether you consider the danger of lho one practice, (leaving tho walks covered with ice,) or the inconvenience of the other, the corporation can receive but little credit. In a city like tins, what number most be daily exposed, (during tho winter season,) to accidents, from the very causes of which I have spoken. It is at best dilhcult to keep from tailing on the ice ; bat when passenger are obliged to turn off trotn the walklbr the sawyers, it add too mncb to their dangerto palliate the conduct of those ho regulate oor city and it laws. Business having called me to visit different parts of the city, 1 observed that Broadway was the meat free from ke, and that (no thank to the magistracy) was cleared by person walking. I have been Induced to make the above re marks, from a wish that the honourable body will remove those nuisances, which are at once dangerou to the citizens and discreditable to themselves. I'OI'ULUS. V Communication. In the last fall, I procured an acauaintanra of mine in the country to put up a barrel of fat beef sor my raniily'i use during the winter. The barrel of beef was wnt to me agreeable to contract ; but before I had used one quarter part of it, I observed it tainted, and so much so a to smell quite offensive. The beef being very fat and fine, f was loth to throw it away. I made the following experiment : I procured a half bushel of charcoal, and after taking out the beef and - throwing away the offensive pickle, I re - packed it in Uie barrel, laying the pieces or charcoal between the piece t and makint; a new pickle, 1 and adding a littl salt - pet ro, I covered the beef, and in about six days found it as sweet and good as it was when first put up. New - York, Feb. 9, J8IS. From the ftalional Intelligencer, Feb. 18. Another bill is rejected in the house of repre sentative!, after two day's consideration, and an interettuig, but brief, debate. The bill, we are sorry to say, was one providiur still further, not only for the widows and orphans and indigent mothers or those who fell in the servic of the country during the late war, but also of the sur viving widows of those who fell in battle or died in se. vice during the revolution a he great ob jection to the bill was, that it threw open too wide the doors of the treasury. Perhaps it did ; but, if so, to whom f To the bereft, to the for saken, 'o th wretched. We regret the fate of the till, the operation of which, if passed, - in the present stats of our finances, the treasury would not have felt We hope that some of the propositions contained in the rejected bill, will, in one shape or other, be yet revived dunn the session. It is a fact, worth mentioning, that upwards of nine huadred petitions have been presented in th house of representatives of tho United States, and referred to various committees, during that part which ba elapsed of the present session. Com. Shaw, of the U. S. navy, is on a visit to this city, on hit return from the Mediterranean William II. Kiog, Esq. our secretary of lega tion to Russia, recently arrived from St. Peters burg, is also at present cn a visit to this city. ' John O.

The same resolutions were about the same time offered in the house of representatives by Mr. Rhea, but refused, because not addressed to the house, but to the individual representatives from Tennestee. November 24, 1817. Resolved by the general assembly of the state of Tennessee, That the followi'ig amendment be propeed to the constitution of the United slates, to wit. M That no law varying the compensation of tbo members of lho congress of the U.

Resolved, That our senators be instructed, and our representative requested to use their exertions to procure the passage of the foregoing amendment. Resolved, That the governor of (hi (tat be requested to traa.rait enpiea of the foregoing resolution! to each of our senator and representa - tires in congress, and that b also transmit to the executives of Uie several states like copies, with a request to lay the same before the legislature thereof, soliciting their exertion and co - opera two m procunns the aid amendment to be a doiited and mad a part of the constitution of the United States. From the Albany DaxJv Airertiter. Feb. 11.

HOUSE Or REPRESENTATIVES. Twetday, February 10. . - PRFyriENTri HOUSE. The following Message wa received from the r resident oi tho united state oy oir. t. . w roa : To the Senate and House of Representative oi the United elate. At th house auoroDriated for the President of the United States will be finished thi year, it i thought to merit the attention ofCongrets in what manner it should ha famished, and what measures ought to be adopted for Uie safe keeping of the furniture in future. AU the public furniture nrnviHrd hei'nr 1814. havine been destroyed with the public building in that year, and Utile afterwards procured, owing to uie inadequacy of the appropriation, it has become necessary to provide almost every article requisite lor tiRn so establishment ; whence, the sum to be expended will be much greater than at any former penoa. Tb furniture, in it kind and extent, is thought to bo an object not less deserving attention than the buihlinr for which it is intended. Coin ne ing national objects, each seems to have an equal claim to legialativ sanction. Tho disbursement of the public money, too, ought, it is pre sumed, to be in like manner provided for by law. Tho person who may happen to (To placed, by the suffrage of hi feUow - citiacnt, In this high trust, naving no personal interest w uirie concerns, should be exempted from uudue reipouii bilily respeclinx them. For a building so extensive, intended for a purpose exclusively national, in which, in the furniture provided for it, a mingled regard is due to the simplicty and purity of our institution, and to tho character of the people who are represented in it, the sum already appropri ated ha proved altogether inadequate. The present i therefore, a proper time for congresi to like the suniect into consideration, with view to aU the object claiming attention, and to regulate it bv law. On a knowledge of the furniture procured, and the sum expended font, a just estimate may be formed, regarding the ex tent of the buildin. of what will still be want ing to furnish the house. ' Many of the articles beimr or a durable nature, may be handed down through a lonff series of service ; and being of great yalue, such at plate, ought not to be left altogether, and at all times, to the car ot servants alone. It seems to be adviseable that a public agent should be charged with it during the occasional absences of the president, and have authority to transfer it from one prauaeut to another, and likewise to make reports of oc casional deficiencies, as the basis on which fur ther provision should be made. It may also merit consideration, whether it may not be proper to commit the care of the public buildings, particularly the president's house and the capitol, with the grounds belong ing to them, including likewise tho furniture of the latter, in a more especial manner, to a public agent. Hitherto the charge of this valuable property tee mi to bar been connected with the structure of th buildings, and committed to those employed in it. This guard will necessarily cease when the buildings are finished, at men time the interest in them will be propor - tionably augmented. It is presumed that Ibis trust is, in a certain degree at least, incidental to tho other duties of the superintendant of the public buildings, but it may merit consideration wnetner it will not be proper to charge him with it more explicitly, and to give him authority to employ one or more persons under him, for these purposes. JAMES mONKUK, Washington, Feb. 10, 1818. The message was read and referred to the committee of the whole to wliom is referred the bill to provide far erecting additional buildioet for the accommodation of the several executive departments. Theatre. The old favorite Opera of Lionel and Clarissa, by BickerstafT, attracted a numerous auditoiy last night; who, we will venture to assert, went away more satisfied than with the flimsy production the stage, in this day. oo frequently exhibits, we entertained high opinion of Mr. 1'hilipp's abilities as an actor, from his performance in the Devil' Bride, and the Maid of the Mill j and which. certainly exhibit Ins stage power to much ad vantage but hi Lionel ktanda, we will ven ture to say, alone, a a combination of singing and acting power, without the advantage of tne trutterinir ores, or time - eervn g clap trap ilia scene with Clarissa and Air John Flower - dale, in the 3d act, was impressive and affect ing ; his declamation good, and his expression true to nature. lie sung the songs of the piece without extraneous embellishments and in the original atyle. Pol. Hesnsltr. Mr. Fhilipn's Lionel is altogether bis best character. We hope to see it again before his departure, which we are sorry to here will be a hnalone. Irui.imeruan.

At St. Croix, on the 8th of January. Mrs. Sarah Beekman, in the 83d year of her age, widow of the late David Beekman, Esq. a native of this city, but for many year pasta resident of that Island. Through a course of protract ed illness, she was distinguished for an easv cheerfulness and even temper, peculiarly her own. Confiding in the promises of her bles sed Redeemer, she met the approach of death with calm serenity, and yielded up her spirit to him who gave it, with a steadiest hope of a blessed immortality. Imminently conspicuous for all the qualities that ingratiate the hea. t, while they adorn and dignify 'their possessor, her loss is an afflicting dispensation to the poor and afflicted, who are thus bereaved of! the kind and eudearing offices of a generous and sympathising friend, society at large of a useful and highly respected member, and her numerous relatives and friend of Uie best of women the ornament of her sex.
