But the bod v - oolitic is now in so healthful and cool a state that a little timely reflection may uroUct u from intemperance ane taction preventive is always much milder and mure easily takea than a remedy. . To rxtura to the rovemor's speech. Much may be done, eays his excellency, by the state zoveniment. bv liberal accommodatioas, by iu .licfous vxvmptious, and by the whole weight ol its liifleoce and much more may be accomplish ed bv the nuMic roirit of the community. For I am persuaded, that if entry nliscn who adopts tbe fibril s ol other nations, wouiu senoiuiy cm itder that ke it nut anlypying lain for tht nip oort of fartism tottnuntnli, but lhal he parliei pate th tmsfcrmtniiig ens of Ik matn pillar f our, productive tndutlrf, no wouiu imiiaie uie Iwoorable pi cli rente wnicu you nave wis uay orinced in favor of American manufactures. Tbouzh this uassare is certainly very far from justify mg an application to uoi tne remarxs wiutn nave oeen maoe aiove, y ei u , i uuuiuy ihink, not outirely unobjectionable. We all itnow that our community is not destitute of am t.itious persouagee, some of tbem young men, and oma who have arrived at yean ol aiscreuon, who are ever ready to become political preach ers and that they might make a very dangerous t and application of toe aoctrtnes aoove stated, without wandering unusually far from their xt. bioce. however, there it nothin: rood which L not liable to abuse, though tbe occasions of it .ire certainly multiplied by imprudence, let us judge the above paragraph by itietf. tin excellency, aiur admitting mat tne meanr for. ' the most eflitieit enroaragement to our .Manufactures," are exeunrey m the hands o the genera eoverameul, adds; that much may tie done bv liberal accmmoialiont, by tWirteiu exemption, by the whole weight of the vfluence of the state government, and that much mori may be accomplished by me puuue sytru ot tnr community. II by liberal accommodations ne meant loans, I do not be ttate to siy, tnai tney cannot be advisable. If founded on security, 'eal or personal, the money cau be h id from in Uriduali : if without security, the state woul lividuala i if without security, the state would - . . iPrTiaTalsrVito l W?!d.dif eatensive, ine toss wouiu ee cer am iu influence in the rorerntnent. and at Jimnui r i ine people ot tne state. ' II it be intended to lend at less than the mar - et price of money, that would be in tbe naturr l a bounty, but bettowed obviously in the must 'lueusive way possnie. As to wxemftutu.Ireirret that his exrel I' ncy did uol particularite. I know of do ex emption within the power of our legislature, ex 'eptOhat which should exclude manufactures loc from tho valuation of personal estate. ' his would be so small an encouragement lint I to not know that the manufacturers ever ask I for it. Having looked In rain to any tangible sonrces i imoura - ement irom the slate, for ourmanu - facturea, we are referred to M the st Ao reirhi f w vijiutnee - oi tne state government, and to " the public spirit of the community .' We nave already considered the legitimate or rather it jt , m " no appropriate objects of the influence of the tate government. If any tliioz bevood this b meiit, if an allusion is made to the influence ol the stale government upuo the national councils, it seems p - etty cloar, for reasons stated in m fast number, that that influence, if not inefficient, must ne lujunnus. But iu the last retort we must depend on " the public tpiril of tht community and everv citi. ten wouiu tuuuiie toe nouorabie preference of tne irgisiaiuty lor American mauufaclures, ihc woull but consider that in' " adovltng the f - bi k s" of other nations, he pays " laxe to their gore rnmmt', and participates in undermining on of ine wuun piuan of ourajmrjtic indiulry " Can any thinking man have read this without surpriie, considering that it came oot from Mr. I ompkins, but from Mr. Clinton.' 1 cannot but express my regret for reasons which are stated above, that his excellency should have made to unqualified an appeal to the public ipiril of every citizen, on a poiut about wnicn mere must oe so much difference of o).in too as to the real interests of the state. As to the probability or dctirtablctuu of such a degree of public spirit as would refuse to a - dopt the f.brics ofthe nation altogether, 1 would refer all wbo believe in eilhe, the one or the o - ther, to the coudiliou of the country during our commercial restriction, and during the late war, when the patriotism of the people and the power oi ine government united were to a considerabU extent overcome by the demauds of necessity. But suppose that C,t people could be inspired with all the necessary public spirit, would it be expedient to employ it in such self - chastisement ? I lus I tnull enquire in my next. - R. for tht livening t'otl. It is auspicious that the subject of oltornia cot has at lengih arrerUd the attention of oui lrgv latare. It must be admitted that abuses to ait alarming degree do exist, atid justice iuipera lively drmandj they should be exposed and corrected ; but with all deference to the framers of the law, which has ,ascd the senate, and which was pubUkhed in the Evening rost of Sa turday last, it if suggested that they do Dot cor rectly understand the ua'.ure and source of the evil which they propose to remedy and the mm ner in which it is practised. If they are mistak en io Ibis respect, the law, should it finally pass, must prove in a great degree inemcacious. be abuses complained of are Dot in the txitt - tnr fac, but is the mdnmutrmlion of it. Wbo - i r is tonvenuAl with the subject knov thi to oe me tact. Ro p rsoual alltraous are intended. an l ou excepti can be taken but by those who feel the application. It is a truth, then, which ou?:it to be exposed, that many of the officers to whom the hw has coufiJed th - dut. rlmin. costs, are in she t,ahitual and daily practice of r. . ....s uui liniH)nut rillL Withnnt Tm r.k: " u ' fr." m " ! - adopted, without ' aersriiifr nfftd4 Adtrtpt bc tnterr wbirh ym are so Vigilant ot,drtOOl aaapplyiOgUHt ccnai t.xiog oflictrw - there are omboorable exoep - tjoos? who disrharge theirduty with fidelity, and ..

For let it be remembered, that in the cases contemplated by this law, tbe defendant usually employs no attorney, nor will he have any actual notice of the time and place of taxation, to mat no may no prowm himself, and object to tbe charge. In those very cases, therefore, more emphatically than io any other, the whole responsibility devolve on the Alitor . v How then are these. abuse to be prevented ? For. I repeat it. they do exist to an alarming de - r. and call loudlv for redress. The answer to my mind is obvious. By the appointment of men lo office, who will correctly discharge men - duty in this respect. There is no hazard in asserting, that if thej3bcil of appointment would fatten the charge ofthis disgraceful delinquency unon some one individual, and remove mm irom office on that precise eround, it would have much more salutary and efficacious influence throughout the state, than any law which can be framed on the subject Self - interest, which, after all, is the main - spring of action, would then insure fidelity in other. . Let the courts aim let their faces affainst such abuses, and make an example ofthe attorney wbo even at - tompts to practice them. In England, whence we have derived all our correct principles of jurisprudence, we find no trace of such law as the one now contemplated, and what is more, we find there no abuse like those which prevail here. There the taxation of courts it subject to a rigid scrutiny, and the the officers and courts of justice are vigilant in detecting and punishing every malpractice in this respect It is contrary to tbe fundamental principle of legislation to enact laws which affect equally the innocent and the guilty, and which necessarily must affect both in order to reach the tatter. JUSTICE. From the National Intelligencer, Ftb X7. American Gu kry of Portrait. Among tbe petitions presented in tbe House of Representatives on Tursdav. was one of Jnsenh Dolaplnine. ol Philadelphia, asking the aid ol Congress to e - nable him to establish in this city a Gallery of Portraits of distinguithi'd Americans. His Gallery, commenced at Philadelphia, already con sists of nearly two hundred portraits and it daily increasing, eucn a collection couia never nave been made, if not now. btcause tome of the per - traits are of those who have already departed from among us, and of others who have already departed from among ot, and of o'hers who are too remote, or too near tbe grave, to tit lor uieir rortraitt again.

Of the twelve different sorb, Dr. Sims asserts this to be the most beautiful of all the ge uus. The stem it woody, a span hi;h, somewhat branched, angular and toogli. Leaves crowded toge. her into something like wliorls, stalked, narrow oborated, bluutish, strongly serrated ; dark green, and veiny above ; paler beneath, about an inch and a half long. Flower - stalks terminal, solitary, three inches long, reddUh, bearing aooui nve imprriecuy uinoetiate, simple, partial stalks aach an inch loo?, spreading rough with glandular pubescence. Flowers larger than the other kinds, and drooping. Petals orbicular, concave, cream - colored ; crimson at the base. lament short, red, all regularly inflexed.

On the subject of natural philosophy, tbey have only to regret that the court was not more ample. m . la the New - York Hospital, they have found aa instructive school of practical medicine and surgery. ' The organisation of th College of Physicians and Surgeons ofthe City of New - York, reflects equal honour on tbe regents ofthe university, by whom it was founded, and on the honorable the legislature of New - York, by whom it has been liberally patronised. In the extensive plan of medical education, which it embraces, and in tht selection of those gentlemen whom tbey have appointed at teachers, they have the surest pledges of stability and greatness. Finally, gentlemen, tbey congratulate themselves in having been the pupils ofthe University of New - York, and fondly hope, that at each successive season, its able teachers may employ their talents, for the benefit of still increasing audiences.
