A'EfT.YORK irEtfJXQ POST. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY T. - Swine esse mar. We ar orTy indeed that there . should still be occasion to bring up once ' ore thii intolerable naisaaco before the public m. l. - f sh.s h - lata r.nal nf tlw Uw restricting hogs from running at large, wu not the voice of the majority of the iBoard, but that advantage wu taken of a partial attendance f the member, and, without hating given anj . previow notice, that tuch a repeal would be moved, (as tissual, Md ought to be always tbe caee, and always is the case when nothing unfair is meant,) a member from one of the outer ward( made the motion for a repeal, and earned it by a majority of those present. This we have receiv ed from report, and consequently we do not ..u ,. t.ik r ;i Rni nnr inrormation uvu iui uw vi uui u. went further, and we were led to believe that a certain gentleman, whose ability, activity and leaf bave been conspicuous, gave notice that ai 1 the next snbiequentmee.iag, he should introduce tut ordinance relative to the subject, which should have for its object the retraining bogs from go - u - i - .t . :!,.. ttv. noriu - nUr clause in the W W WIIMVBl MW f " former, which had rendered it obnoxious. In the belief that this information was correct, we did not think it worth while to trouble tbe public with any observations on this unpleasant subject in the papers...' But we bave this moment received a number of commonicauone on wis subject, one 01 wnicn informs us, that there exists no probability that the Board will pass any ordinance having tor its object the (hutting up tbe swine. If so, if the - tsoara are aeiermineo on continuing prucutr A t " ao disagreeable to a great part of the citizens, so effeatire to the eye of decency, so dangerous to jc&ildren, - and even to grown persoos, females es - pecially, so destructive to our pavements, so 61 - ' thy and so disgusting to the sight, and only con turned fur the sake of gratifying a very few of the inferior orders, such as chimney - sweepers & free blacks, then we propose to put the question to lair trial, at the ensuing election, by desig Rating the ticket for aldermen and assistants, that contains the names of such as are in favor of the hogs, as Th Hog Ticket, and those who vote for it as The Suriniih Multitude, " Mr. Lang having informed us that he consider his integrity indirectly impeached by the com munication in last evening's paper, respecting the publishing of lotteries, we are authorized on Um part of oar correspondent to disclaim any ttjch intention. An editorial article relative to the new appoint ment of mayor, is necessarily postponed for want of room. ADDRESS Or" THE SWINE, To the honorable corporation of New - York, on repealing the law which forbid their going at large. ., .Accept, honoured friends, (for such you have been, Nor elte a poor bog any more could be seen,) Our warmest effusions of praises and thanks, For permitting oar herd to continue their pranks. To be sure, we are fond of reposing in mire, But tlii can be said of some folks that are higher, Who love to be groveling, like pig, in the dirt, Altho' Ihey experience duaster ana hurt. Some say that we root up the pavement and tree, But Mania msv think and debate as thev nleasa : While rooting lor pleasure or money or fame, With animals human is ever the same. Again it is said we are grunting forever ; But are not some people at this very clever i For grunting you find iu the city and nation, Uutil they obtain a good lucralut station. Some call us the JUlhiest part of the brutes ; To answer their purpose the term perhaps suits : Tet many who dress and appear very fine, Might justly be styled the two - legged rwinc. Our business and pleasure forever has been, To keep your great city delightful and clean. This work we accomplish, all people believe, Who see that we take what the scavengers Icau. It was our intention and heartiest with, To give to your honors a favorite dish Of bam, roasted pig, or choice bacon so fine, Whenever at Bellevue yeu went out to dine. But the turtle, who tbo' he is often times thinner, Aspires o first place at a corporation dinner t We, therefore, bave ouly our thanks to present, And hope you'll accept what is honestly meant Since men, like the twine, are thus rooting and grunting, (The litnile surely will not be affronting,) Permit us to close with our hearty applause, For repealing so promptly the wont of all laws. DICKY GRUNT. To the Editor of the Evening Post. ' A communication having appeared in the New - York Daily Advertiser, under the head of Bank Note Exchange, corrected weekly by Davenport St Tracy, stock and exchange brokers, in which the notes of the Bank of New - Brunswick are quoted at 2 a 3 per cent dis count, you will confer a favor on that institution by notifying tbe public thro' the medium of your paper, that the said notes, almost ever since the resumption of specie payments, bave been an J continuetebe received at the Mechanic's Bank, which, of coarse, rives them currency with the several banks in this city. Prom the National Intelligencer, Feb. 19. The vice - president of the United. States arriv d kt this city yesterday, from his residence in ftew - York. The legislature of Ohio ha recently adjourn ed. Anton; the acts passed, were acts to incor porate lour or five new banks, in addition to between twenty and thirlv previously incoroo - rated. ." The proposition to tax the branch of the Uni - led Stales Bauk in that stale, was negatived. The following well written remarks, complimentary of Mr. LMaplaine's handsome and interesting gallery, is Iromlhe National Messenger, a respectable paper, printed in Georgetown, (D. C.) It gives as exceeding great satisfaction to an - Bounce to our reader, that at this time a spirit - d project is in contemplation toeztablhh a na - tiixtal gallery of portraits, and in conjunction with it, a museum in the citv of W'iLh,nm, The national object first in onr tlmn - fet. i dearest to oar hearts, is tbe glory of repulsing' and chastising foreign foes ani invaders : thii we bave done. The next is the advancement of our country in erudition, in science, in the arts, and in all that ennobles nations and emboli itlie life. In a word, a proHcieocy in skimming off from tlv 'improvements, andacromnlated invention, the grandeur, the rich embellishment?, th nib - stantial intelligence, and the intellectual end moral opulence of tbe old world, (now so near to iu meridian height, as to be almost ta! ionsrr. wnw rtraniDf oown its course into ae cUs) all that may be worthy iyf edition, or that caaitrve us'u'fof imitation - all that viU place" u early la v fit state, for competition in arta and sciences with our predecessor uod inrtructorethat will enable us ; successively v rival them in, honour, and virtue, and true re nown and which will serve to aemoottsw w the existing race ef mankind and to future ages, . . l...etuel ftkm that we are not aiiogemer sow ", - - bounteous boons which nature baa lavished upon ... . ik nAanmnlad bleetinr which be who gives and can recal his gift, has been gra - ..1. i kiinw ddoo this people. The scope ef the project to which we allude, will in its outset, De connueu w m j - tru. rth infletdutintruished Americans ; par ticularly of those who have rendered their names illustrious by identifying them with independence and freedom and prosperity of the country, and .hnh the ! of their arms, and the wisdom of their counsels, converted a narrow strip of territory on an inhospitable snore, covered wuo a seantv DODulation of two millions of colonial lubjects into a vast empire of many million ol sonars mile, covered with a people numbenn; eight minions, cultivated with all the skill of tbe urst agricultural counties, eoncnea irons iu ecu tre to every part of its circumference with splen did cities and rich towns, enlivened by commerce and filled with schools, colleges, universities ap propriated to learning. - and the learned profes sions, and already cherishing by public institu boa, the ornamental arts ol every kind. This will indeed be a gallerr worth transmis sion teposterity - worth all the galleries of kings, and all ins tinselled portraits ol princes. While the gallery will present to the hearts of a grateful posterity, tbe images ol those men on whose virtues history will teach him to dwell with rapture. i he museum wm neip to prepare the rising generation and its successor, to follow those illustrious examples, by unfold ing to them the secret processes of nature ; and laying open the recesses or natural history, thereby bringing them nearer to celestial inter course, by exciting a cariosity after the works of God, and leading them on to a contemplation of the wonderful wisdom with which the universe is formed, and of the Providence which go verns the animal and vegetable worlds. The gallery already consists of near two hundred portraits all unrivalled for perfect re semblance to their originals : and it is daily in creasing. A little time, more, and this object would be unattainable since some of the per sons deserving of commemoration will be scattered in remote place and some will be lost to us for ever, in the obnrieo of the grave. The proprietor of this plan, and possessor of these invaluable portraits, is Mr. Delaplauie, ol Philadelphia, proprietor of the rexitory, tu whose industry and intelligence hi country is already greatly Indebted. An application, we understand, will be made to congress, ana sup ported by the influence of some high patriotic characters to aid him in his design, and we would fain persuade ourselves that there are very few members of either house who will not regard tbe undertaking as laudable, honourable, patri otic and deserving of the support of this republic. To the city of Washington, and the district in general it will be a great acquisition ; nor will it be the worse, but much better, for being com menced at such an early date in the history of the district. - Hereafter, when the lew years which have passed since the building of the Ca pitol, will be lost to the eye in tbe vast space of centuries. It will perhaps be said of this gallery and museum, that they were coeval with the metropolis of the U. States and its eacouragers and founders, whose name will be transmitted along with it to after ages, will be mingled in one common eulogy, with the founders of all our early institutions. From the Albany Daily Advertiser, Feb. 19. Eunice Chapman (positively her last appear ance this season.) In the houie of assembly, yesterday, in committee of the whole, Mr. Oakley in the chair, one of the moist able, interesting aod finished debates occurred upon the bill fur the reiiei ol itus lady, which we have ever witnessed in our legislature. Mr. Duer commenced the debate, in a speech of about 15 or 30 minutes against the bill, which was characterized bv his usual force and elegance of language, and clearness of reasoning. Mr. Colden then followed him in support of the bill, in a speech of great brilliancy and ingenuity, end which doubtless had a very powerful effect upon the result of the question. Mr. Meigs replied to Mr. Colden ; and we should do injustice to our own feeling. should we neglect to pay an humble tribute to the short but able performance oi'thi gentle conn. In addition to the soundness of his arguments, aod to an excellent voice, there is a singular sweetness and brilliancy in his language which captivates aud charms the hearer. Mr. Sharpe followed Mr. Mtigs for a few minutes upon the same side, and acquitted himself in a manner highly creditable. ile endeavored to press upon tbe house the pernicious principle they were a - bout to establish, and tbe evils which would inevitably flow from the establishment of such a dangerous anil alarming precedent ; and illustrated his poiit - ons by a lew " stubborn facU." directly in point. Mr. Sargent replied in sup port of the bill. The question wu then taken on the passage of (he bill, and carried in (be affirmative, 85 to 19 1 From the Georgia Jouraal, Ftb. 10. The military called for by the late requisi tion are marching with alacrity to Hartford the place of rendezvous. The companies from Wilkes and Elbert passed through this on Saturday ana Sunday last - From other counties they have proceeded to their destina tion by nearer routes. Kurnor, ever busy in catering for credulity, has more than once within the last week represented gen. Jackson to have arrived at fort - Hawkins, Clinton, and half a dosen other places where lie certainly had not been. It was reported too, that from 1000 to 1500 Tennessee volunteers would ac company him of this we know nothing; that he is already in the Creek nation, or on his way there, we have no doubt ; but whether at the head of many volunteers, or attended only by the officers of his stair, u uncertain. Since our last paper, we have no information that a - ny further mischief has been done by the Indians. It is the opinion of many intelligent persons, that the savages, from the nature of their country, can elude a decisive engagement, and procrastinate the war almost at pleasure. We think it unfortunate, that the militia had not been called out, in the first instance, for the full term authorized by law. If the object for which their services were tequired had been Sooner accomplished, their discharge would have followed as a matter or course. After the above was in type, and just before our pper went to press we learned, that the governor has received a letter from gen. Jack - ton, dated from Jackson county in this state The general was proceeding to Fort Haw - kins, and there is little doubt but he arrived there yesterday, a the siring of cannon in that directing was distinctly heard. The quotas of militia from Green and Oglethorp passed on yesterday for the general rendezvous. Eleven hundred bales of cotton, we are informed, arrived lately at Darien in the course of a single day this looks well the prosperi ty of Milledgenlle and Uar.en is inseperabie they must ru.e or UU together. The pro - grcsiive ana rapid increase ol business in ooui places, i a substantial assurance, we trust, that our town, notwithstanding the want of capital among its enterprizing citizens, and the deficiency of enterprise with those who have capital, will continue U flourish. Its lo - Cl kituittion, at the head of boat naviiratioii. with a populous fertile, and wealthy country around it, is most advantageous let it be re - membsred, that cotton and other produce of ias counties u transported from hence to Savannah by water, Car one half the etpettce of carriage by way of Auginta, or direct by land let it also be recollected, that tbe .Da nte market lor cotton, during tie present sea son, has frequently equalled . tliat of Savannah, and that .the sliflerence between the prices in MiUedceville and Augusta has been leu than the coast of waggoning from one place to the other: - ! 'r - . - ' - 1 " Where. - we might ask, are roods vended with irr eater facility than - here ? Where can cotton be bought more advantageously f Ur where are , the services of cnechanics and professional men better remunerated f All the heavy article of commerce, salt, lion, sugar, &c. can be brought to in is place as cheap, ana, when there is a little more competition, will be sold as low here as in Augusta. It is therefore evident, that nothing is wanting to ensure to tbe seat ot gavemment a vast increase ol com merce, but additional capital and enterprise. NORFOLK, Feb. 16. The Packet Accomack, captain Cuttis, which arrived last evening from fungoteaeue, brought Mr. German, his wife , and four children, who were among the passeogers in the brig Jolm M Cammon, capt. Larmour, stranded on Asaewo - man beach. Mr. G. states that the brig had a passage of 49 days from Belfast, and the number .n i i nL.i .k.w t.&.4 ui iter pussengerj was i iia uicj iibii rienced a continued series of westerly winds un til a few days before they made the land, when it hauled round to tbe northward and eastward, and at half past 2 o'clock, on Saturday morning tbe 31st January, ibe struck. . llie sea running very high, nnd the mow Tailing so last as to pre' vent them from discerning objects, they remain ed by the vessel until Sunday morning, when by throwinz overboard a auantity of salt, potatoes. and a few cases diaper, she drifted further on to the beach, and by letting themselves down into me Doai irom me Dowspm, uiey were conveyea on shore in safety. Mr. G. further states that the passengers, as soon as they landed pitched a tent, intending to remain on the beach a few days in expectation that tiiey raigni tnereny lie ena bled to save some of their baggage and oilier ar tides they had brought with them, which would be highly necessary in travelling in a strange land ; but all their attempts were fruitless, a they could save no part of their little all," and were obliged to take leave of one another in their destitute situation, each departing for bis place of destination on foot, and dependent entirely on tbe hospitality of the inhabitants for shelter and subsisfenre. Mr. Gorman's object is to get to Raleigh, N. C. where his brother resides. So much was the attention of himself and his wife engaged in rescuing their dear little boys from the wrecK. that tney were unanie to save any part of their property. Buenos Jtvret. Whatever relates to this new Republic must be in some degree inter esting to an American reader. We frequently hear news of the political and mditary atiairs of that country, but the heralds who announce such intelligence, always forget to tell us any thing about the people themselves, their manners, customs and character. The follow. in? brief sketch however partially supplies these omissions, and will, no doubt, be read with a good deal of interest. It is communi cated by a gentleman of intelligence and strict veracity, now in Buenos Ayres, in a letter to a friend in tins place. " Buenos Araks, Nov. 20th, 1817. . " Tbe inhabitants, like the European Spa niards, are remarkable for their indolence, but very unlike them in their politeness, sociability and gaiety. The women are more lovely and fascinating in their persons than can well be imagined by those who have never seen them. To visit the tiger or bull fights, the opera house, or their sociable tilulias, (similar to the tea - parltes in Virginia) is to behold a display of female beauty surpassing the most extravagant descript ion l am capable of giving. Uut then, (U human trauty) they are even mure addicted to gallantry and intrigue, than the ladies of Spain or Italy.""". O how ex alted, in my estimation, are the fair daughters of my native land at this moment ! With what rapture do I dwelt upon the remembrance of those charcteristic traits of modesty, sincerity, prudence and rigid virtue by which they are so peculiarly distinguished from the ladies of almost every other country in the universe. " The abundance of every kind of provision in this place will appear almost incredible. It is now the commencement of the spring season, and there is not an article that attracts the eye that is not plenty in the superlative degree with the exesption ot honest mm. A bull or ox may be bought for one dollar ; an elegant horse for four dollars the most beau tiful horse in the country may be purchased Rr the trifling sum ot sixteen dollars. Sheep are animals thai the natives will not eat, and they are only used to burn the brick k ilns ; they are sometimes valued at 12 1 - 2 to 13 3 - 4 cents per head. " A certain barbarian (for I can call him nothing else) residing three miles out ofthistity, regularly every year drives into his kilns 10,000 .sheep, alive, and closing the kilns sets fire to the poor harmless animals with as much sang fioid as one of your Norfolk brick makers would to a collection of pine fuel. In short the country is so overrun with every description of domestic aud wild animals, that they range at large without restraint, perfectly tbeir own masters. Every man is an expert horseman, and every horseman is a sure goucfter, or latsar, as they are here termed. He can mount his horse, and with a rope 100 yards in length, attached to the h'nder part of his saddle, gave chase in full speed, thro a running noose over the object of pursuit, (whether a man ora wild animal) with incredible certainly, and thus entangling it, wheel suddenly about and set off at full gallop, dragging his victim or prey after him. In this manner they take all the animals on which the inhabitants of the country and the cities subsist. Nothing can escape the runniug noose of these extraordina - . - y and expert horsemen when in pursuit. " Nature has not intended tins for a great maritime country. A ship carpenter might do well enough at repairing vessels, making spars, &c. but he would meet with poor success in building, as he could find neither of those es sentials, timber and water, in sumciens abundance. " The whole of South - America on the South side of the great river (Kio de la Plata) is now entirely free from the Spanish yoke. The two conquersng armies of Buenos Ayres, under the command ot the celebrated Oenerals at. Mar tin and Belgrano, having conquered the exten sive province of Chili, are now on its Northern borders, and upon the eve of commencing ope rations against the royalists in the province of Peru ; so that Lima, with ill golden harvests, may soon be expected to form another link in the chain of republican dominion. Remarkable bull A bull, of the following dimensions, raised on the Roanoke, only 5 years old, was exhibited io this town on Saturday last, and is this day offered to the inspection of the curious at the stables of Mr. Joseph Hall in Portsmouth. Dimensions, 5 feet high ; 1 4 feet from his nose to the end of his tad, which last is not mure than three feet long ; girth round the body 9 feet, round the ueck 6 feet, and bis legs so short that his breast is Dot more than 18 inches from the ground ; supposed, by competent judges, to weigh two thousand pounds ! "BOSTON, Feb. 19. Mr. S illivan has announced at Hartford a scheme for facilitatin j and extending the navigation of Connecticut Kiver by means of SUain Tow - Boats, which bid fair to be of great benefit to the country. It is proposed that there shall be steam - boat of three site the first to ply between Hartford and North fit 1 J, or Brat - tleborough, to tow the boats that navigate the river; the second morr powerful, between Say - brook and HarUbtxC'to low vessels when detain ed by the current or wind j ana tne uuru io uw i.. frnn Rotten, a soon as tbe Cape TBKWW ,'.r Cod Canal shall be finuhed, or to New - York, if it.. mAnnitolv oo steam boat in tnat state uu he rescinded. To render this scheme the more ruhl.. Mr. Sullivan offers the use of the rota tory steam engine, invented by Samuel Mdrey, r. aluu intent for boats and vessel, Mr. Sul livan has purchased : and also a discovery by the rune gentleman of "a mode of obtaining or fire from a Part of the steam or by de Anmnosinr the water so as to obtain inflammable gasc." This scheme, if carried into execution, will manifestly be of great service to the country. . . PORTLAND. Feb. 17 rw h.trbnur ia comnletelv frozen as far a Hog Island ingress or egress can be had until this embargo isreiuoied. - PORTSMOUTH, (X. II.) Feb. 14 Singular circumstance. .MUs Sally Johnson, who sat out on a visit from her brother's house, in Northward, about 12 o'clock on Thursday, Feb. 5th. to see her ister Bachcldcr, distaut a - bout two miles, missing her way passed by the road that led to her sisters nearly one mile up the turnnike : she (topped at the house of Mrs. ig in. and enauired the way. Mr. Wiggin to!d her to return on the turnpike as far as Mr. Clark's wind mill, and take the first right band road; (he immediately left the house, but before he got to the place directed, tho snow bearing her, she got over the fence and directed her course, as she thought, to her sister's, but again loet her way. Night coming on, and she having got into a wood, gave up all hopes of reaching the bouse she set out to visit, one naa now no alternative but to traverse the forest aud call for assistance for the first night; butheroalls were in vain though she was heard by a number of persons. The family of her brother, whence she departed, never heard but she had arrived at her sister's, unbl the aunaay soiiow - inr. A party of the neighbor immediately commenced a search at the place where her cries were heard ; they scoured the forest in every direction till night. They had nearly given np the search, when a iniall number of th party, being at a greater distance than tne rest, laid, " we will learcb that mall place of low land, if we cannot find her there we win give up for the night." But here, to their a stonishment, they found her surviving, and able to (peak, after being 73 hours in this inclement season without any sustenance. They removed herte her sister's (it being nearly one mile) where she is likely to do well, having only one of her feet frozen. UTICA, Feb. 17. A travelling - hou se, ark, land steam - boat, or whatever elte it may be called, passed through thn village last week on it way to the west. It came from York county, District of Maine, and had been thirty days on tbe road. It was drawn by eight oxen, and was well freighted with hu man beings, domestic animal, lowli, household furniture and farming uteutila. It has a stove, windows and curtains, and conveniences for lodging. PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 19. A generous act. A number of citizen of An gusta, Georgia, convened on the evening of the Istinst. at the lata residence of Mr. John Alan, deceased, for the purpose of. devising a plan for the protection and upport ofeeven tufant orphans, who are recently deprived of a father, mother, and elder bro'her. It was resolved, that the four female children should be placed together in a respectable boarding school for three month, and that the three little boys should be placed with the gentlemen who bad volun teered to keep them until the expiration of the above mentioned time when it it intended to afford them all tbe mean of returning to tbeir native place (Hallowed, in the district ol Maine) To raise a fund to meet these objects, it wa determined to call on the liberality of tbe citizens cenerally, to contribute to the relief of these helpless orphans in a strange land far away from tne place wnicn once anew tnem. Look here, Graziers and Kpicures . Mr. Job Tilar, of Salem, New - Jersey, has sold the ox which he raised and fatted, for the handiome sum of thirteen hundred dollars, to Mr. Drum and others, victuallers of this city. lie will, no doubt, far exceed any bullock ever yet ex habited in any market in the United Slates ; and competent judges say, who bave travelled thro' Kurope, that they never saw but equal in that country. We understand that a steam boat is engaged to bring him to this city as soon as the navigation will admit. JtllSLKMA. - M. . SAVANNAH, Feb. 7. Valuable cargo The value of the cargo on board the ship Susan, captain Window, cleared this morning for Liverpool, is said to be one nun dred and twenty thousand two hundred and eight dollars and eighty - five cents : ! ! Lorenz Furst, esq. an eminent merchant of Hamburg, had a ton christened George Waahv ingtoo, on the 23th September last on which occasion Mr. Furst gave an entertainment to the American who were then at Hamburg, r rom this it may be seen, how dearly the memory of the author of American liberty and ludepcud ence is cherished in Germany. The hon. Timothy Pickering is appoiutcd pre sidentof the Essex Agricultural Society. CONGRESS. IN SENATE February 19. Mr. Williams, of Tennessee, from the com' mittee on militery affairs, reported a bill to re duce the staff of the army, which was read and passed to a second reading. 1 he senate took up the report of the commit tee ot finance, on the enquiry referred to them, into the expediency of repealing the duty on alt, and in concurrence with that report, it was Resolved, 1 bat it i not expedient to repeal the law imposing a duty on salt. The report was advocated by Mr. Campbell, and opposed by Messrs. omilb, Macon, Bar hour and Morril. Mr. Barbour submitted the following resolu tion for consideration : Resolved, That the committee on military affairs bo instructed to inquire into the expedi ency of changing the mode of supplying the troops of the United Stales by contract, and substituting one cheaper and more efficient, by subjecting tbe parties undertaking that duly to military law, in case ol delinquency. 1 be senate adjourned.

Mr. Pinuall having concluded his remark a gainst the bill, fr. Sergeant and Mr. Smith of Md. delivered able arguments in favor of it, the former at greater length.
