NEW - YotiK FKNINQ POST. WEDNESDAY MARCH 4, ' Fair pbn u fewel. Some few day rinee we republished a curious Utter which we took from the Col am ban, oa the subject th reset! ef the late mayor. Thit Utter, signed by ha whole deUgatiocof th city (with the ex Caption of Mr. Golden) wm addreetad to the eoool of appointment, and stated that " Jacob lUdcliffwas an mailt per ton to hold that lespactable office,' and therefore prayed that be eheald be removed," and removed he was ee - ordUctr.

Bat I do not perceive that we are to bare any redrew for oar complaints a - faamt their filthy state, yearly, from the month of December to the last of April. The fault lice hi making the contract to sweep and clean, to commence in May and terminate with Novem ber m eotueaeoce of which, for live months hi every year, oar streets, anion when harden. ed by frost, are rendered almost impassable by the eend.

Chronicle Vtfinpttnt mditim eun. In 1814, the presi dent aiUm liuted state required or tnegover 9orf Peeweylrania a certain aamberof fight :, - i" i the governor directed the brigade - in tpeciori to drift and march those men to a cer tain point the brigade - inspectors bad the nam her of men required at that point at the time specified, and they were placeJ in the service of tbe United states, and in that service remained till discharged by the United State' authority. Sow what further claim, could it be reasonably aupposed, h.wi the Uni'ed Htate npon the tt of Pennsylvania ? W hy the men composing the quota required were made up of volunteers and militia, instead of th identical person drafted ; and after accepting the service of the volunteer aud militia, the men who were drafted and did not turn out, were mulcted for tbe bautfitof the United States. Si the U. S. had the benefit of the men, and afterwards of tbe money, which one mould believe wa only to be received as the p'lly forfeited a toe men not forthcoming. It appears that some of the draAed militiamen thus mulcted, doubted the lawful right of the V. S. to the one imposed upon tiiem, and have been somewhat troublesome to the U. S agents, the marshal and his deputies, by citing then to appear btfoi the state:' court, to try the right.

Mr. Cold en then rose and made an extern - nore address to the Common Council, in a very feeling and eloquent manner, and which we regret we are. not able to present to our readers.

Wathirgton City, Feb. 83, 1818, DIVISION ORDER. In reviewing the ioiidetitt of his command, th commanding general find with regret that a practice hat existed among officer of the army of makiiur public avowal of tbeir feuds, amon; each other, in the shape of threats and ieronal denunciation. These act on the one side have called for recrimination on the other, and the public bat been made umpire in misunderstand ing, in which it had no interest nor knowledge. This conduct, on the part ol au engaged, it in decorouF and unmilitary. It loosen the bonds of those who are bound to act in unitou, and iui pairs the uceptihility of reputation, which fhould be the soul and inherent principle of a soldier. No man is worthy to be a leader of A' merican troops, or the deposi ory of the hopes of his inferior associates, who it not at free from stains on Lis own reputation, as Irom willingness to asperse that ot others. It it not expected that the army be exempt from the sources of collision which are common to all institutions ; but it it lets expected that men ol gallantry and nonor tees reparation in invective, or deem any thing reparation, which is procured at tbe expaace of the dignity of the body ot which they are member. Where regi mental court of honor cannot intervene, courts of enquiry are clothed with the express euardt anship of the honor of tbe army, and there must be something ill in the cause that it not willing to submit to tucb reference. I be commanding general will be wilbng at all timet to sanction such court, and there are few dutiet more ho norable to the officer, than to vindicate tbe re putation of an associate or repress errors com' milled within their own body. In luture, therefore, the commanding general expressly proiiioitt all relerence in the public print to the feud amen? officer, in whatever rh ipe they may be published. He advert to no particular iustance : the existence of the cus tom ha been an excuse for it continuance. To the truly honorable, the appeal alone is suffi - cient : the prohibition is given that there any be no error in future, that the army may be identi fied in one character, at it is embarked in one cause, and that the denunciation of on of its members may be considered at an outrage to tbe whole By order of major - general Brown, TH:8.
