and FRIDAY, MARCH . llarbar maukrs - W ha received a cominnui - Calion fro aa ankoown cos - respondent, request : Ingu to iamin m act which passed April . 17th, 1815, entitled " An cl ft update Ou tf harbor - masters tf tVU port sf Few - York , and m if it doe pot inquire revtal full m much as any mm relating toattarnies, alUioughth tat ter only bat bo pressed upon th attention . the legislature. Complaint it madt by the writer '. ftha injury thit law i calculated to doth cotst - ,; toctraUoftJiicrty, by authorising lb exaction of new and unreasonable fee. W have accord . lSf rvn U subject aj critical an examine - tko. and made ourselve a otensively e - ' attainted with facta at our tin and arocatioo would allow ; and wc now glv the mult. '." In the first place, wa turned to the law as it . stood formerly, and wa found it enacted in the ' 7th aectioa of the act relative te the harbour - master of New - York, providing for hi compensation, a follows: , That theeaid harbor - Biajterthall have pow , er to demand and receive from the commander, owner and consignees, or cither oftbem, of every ship or vessel that may enter tbe port of New - tor, and load, onload or make (ant to any wharf 'therein, at too alter the rate ol one cent per ton, to be computed from the tonnage expressed in the reg'ftenoftucb ships and vessels respective - r, and no more: Provided netnthelru. That nothing whaUoever shall be demanded by tbe (aid harboT - marter, for the entrance into the port - of New - York, of anv vessel employed in the coat t - - ing trade within the United Stain, unless uon the application of the mailer or penoni 'having cha - gecf any vowel employed in the coasting trad as s tors said, the aatd harbor - matter ihall interfere and adjust any difference which may happen reipecting the situation or position of any inch coasting vessel, which difference! the (aid . harbor - matter ii hereby authorised to hear and determine, in which cate the taid harbor - mat ter may demand and recover in manner afore aid, from the party in default, in the premises, the earn of one dollar for every difference 10 by nun aiijuvsu, amino more." Under this law, the office of harbor - master of New York waa found to profitable, that on its becoming vacant, the appointment to it was ought after with an avidity that shewed its value Waa not unknown. But oc casino wai taken April, 1815, to make a pressing call ujxm th legislature for some amendment of the law, par - ticularly, as respected the compensation, and being at the heel of tbe tMtinn, when every one Who has bad the opportunity to witness the pro ceeding of a legislative body, at such a period. kaows how matters of moment are sometimes hurried along with a precipitancy that will adult of but little examination, tbe last act refer red to in the beginning, waa pasted. Let us look at it Dy the first section of the act of A?ril, 1817, kis enacted, that " On all ships or vessels of the United States, Whi' h shall arrive at the port of New - York, from any port or place without this state, other than Jrva sons" port or place io an adjoining st ile. which shall . nter the port of New - York, and load, unload, or nv.ilce fust to any wharf therein, at and after the followiur rale, vii: On all slops or reittli, not exceeding the burden of Mie huudrsu tout, thotuia of onednllar and fitly Cents on all such ship) or vessels of one hundrtd tndnots - xceediugtwohuriilredliHis, the sum of three dollars and on all such nhis or vessels ol greater burdens in lis same proportion! the on risen ol sucti etnpt or vessels to be tu all cases . asctrtaioed by the retiective registers or enroll ments I Wnd also on all foreign shiim or vessels whti H shall arrive and enter the taid port, and Untold., or make last to any wharf therein, double the amonnt of lh feet above sp ifird, according to the ra'e ol tonuage or burden of said ships or vessels." . By the third section of this act it is further provided : 44 That whenever the said harbor - matters shall be required to remove, or a teiond time to station any surh ship or vessel at any wharf in the aaid port, or to interfere and adjutt any difference or dispute respecting; the birth, position, or fattening of any such - hip or vessel, it thill be lawful for the said hririor - mastert to demand and receive from tie person or persons ri quiring their aid io the premises, and bi fore they shall be hound to exercise their authority therein, the sum. or one dollar and fifty cents, and the like Compensation shall alo be allowed aa.l pai l in like maiimr, in even subsequent instance in which they shall be called ou and required to a t or iulerfere as aforesaid, in respect to any ship er vessel " We are now prepared to make a brief comparison of the two relating to the compensation allowed the harbor - master by each. By the former we tee, that no fees were de mandable upon the entrance of "any vessel into the port of New - York, employed in the roasting trade within tbe United Mates" by the officer, unlets for services actually rendered ; and th;it there might be no doubts about the nature of the enices iutended by the statute, it is required that there should be an application for him to Interfere and adjust any diff - reoce which may happen respecting the situation or position of the coasting vessel, and for bis trouble in hearing aJ determing such difference, he is to become entitle! te one dollar and nc more. Upon all other vessel' he received one rrnf per ton By the Utter, all vessels of whatever toasting vessels as well as olh'rs, (except - inziHily those coming from an adjoining state,) are liable to the following enormous fees in all ca'es : Upon all ships or vessels, whatever, not exceeding one hundred tons, ono dollar and fifty cents ; on all such ships or vessels of on hundred, and not exceediuj to hundred tons, tbe sum of thrr. dollart ; and on all sh.,s or vessels Of greater burxHn, iu like proportion ; anJ , aI, foreign th., or vel,, double the amount ot tie fees above sneafod." .

Now, it is well known to every body, that it is rare, indeed, that a vessel on her coming into port can procure the most conseni ent birth s and it m ty happen that she is obliged to call on the harbor - master to interfere several timet, before she can be accommodated, and every time this great man deigns to open his mouth and designate a new station, he is entitled by this statute to his 1 60 cents. hit said by those whom I hare enquired of, that a roast ing - vessel can go from Boston to Philadelphia cheaper than she can come to New - York. The public welfare of the city is deeply impl r a ed. It it not hirh time that this subiect should w awaken the vigilance of our citizens, and receive the serious attention of oar legislature?

I quoted hi editorial paragraph in a man ner, as 1 thousht. hiehlv comnlimrntnrv In hi. ditorial talcut, and to my utter astonishment, hi has chosen to consider it a quiz, and to be angry that is judging from his paragraph of this morn ing. 1 his is the more surprising as no man i. fonder of a compliment than Mr. Lang, nor, to do him justice, more deserving one. Indeed, none dealt more in compliments, nor, it may fairly be taid, has any editor in modern times acquired a greater knack of turning them. Wit ness the following to the late mayor, which ap peared iu Tuesday's paper, on the inauguration which took place the day before : Yesterday afternoon, C'adwallader D.

A resolution was moved in the bouse of representatives, lat Saturday, to close the prcte - session of congress on day of .March, whi t was ordered to lie on the table. FROM OUR CURRKSPO.XDE.VT. Daily Advertiser, Albany, ) March 3. The house of assembly were yesterday prim i pally engnged Uxu th bill for incorxi ating t . Israml t. Impler ol this stale, Mr. W heeler iu tin rhair. Very unexiectedly, quite an interest ing, and part of the time, a humorous debate a rose upou the bill. When the bill was called, Mr. Oakley rose, and stated to the committee very clearly ant! distinctly, tne objects ol it, and the motives o the Orand t hapter in petitioning lor an act ol lurorporalion. Mr. Duer followed in opposition, upou th primiple that it is iuexpedieut to increase the number of corporate six leties ; and that au a l for tlie puroses set forth, could be of uo bnefi to the institution. He contended thit the huu were acting Uon this subject teitht'il light thai it was a secitt insti:ut:oo that the objects and principles ol lasrn, were in a manner uuknow to the world and that the memb. r. of th house, except the few who were skilled iu th mysteries of the order, could not act uuder - taod - ingly upon the bill under consul, ration. Mr. Van Antwerp addressed the committee a few ni'nules in reply to Mr. Duer. Air. Van Antwerp hamlled the subject with skill and ahi lity. He stated the fundamental principles ol Uie order of free masons the many difSi ultir - the.y were compelled to encounter, in order property to vet. secure, and regulnt their fund - , whkh are exclusively set apart for " labors ol love and chanty," and the motives which induced the Grand Chapter to apply for a charter. Messrs. Meigs, I hhcwffer and harpe, also spoki in opposition to th bill, aud Mr. Oakley several times in favor of it. One great objection urged afiinst the psss?. - . ol the hill. Iiy .Vr. Meigs, was that in the officers recoeniicd by mawi?, manv titles wen conferred which were highly improper and an ti - rejiublican. Among these, Mp. Meigs enu merated those of Grand High Priest, Genera Orand Hieh Priest, Grand Masters. Grand (U. cretarics, Illustrious Grand Masters, Illustrious and for his part he could perceive no more danger to be apprehended Irom titles which Mr. M - had enumerated, than from those niutit al and harmonious terms of ilistinctiou. adapted by that society, such as Grand Sachems, Sagamores, n huktnktes. X o - ttau, 1 a - noes, aueKS - iat s. Tribes, Panther Tribes, hear Tribes, Wvlf I noes, and other titles, triott, and orders ol dis tinction, i:c. Sic.

The Columbian undertakes to state that a cer tain communication, published in that paper ot last evening, was refused insertion in the Even ing Pott, although it was in answer to one thai had appeared in this paper. I presume the edi tor receives hit information from the writer, bu the impression given is erroneous, ft was an ar tide respecting Dartmouth College, and the piece to which it was an answer, was itself an answer : so that, both sides had already bad a hearing. Bat it would more have con - isted with candor, to have taid, that though the com municaiioo itself was declined on the ground that it was only calculated to produce a coutro verty on a subject entirely uninteresting to our readers in New - York, yet that the writer wi welcome to an insertion of whatever was a con tradiction of facts alleged on the other side.

The auimat ed debate which took place in the house of Re - resentauves ou Saturday, on the expatriation nil, derived additional interest from a declara tion of Mr. Speaker Clay, that be should, in the ourse oi tne present session, brine the cause ol ne souin - Amencan pat not s before th house in i manner worthy of the subiect s who pledged - ... - - " nunseii, on trial occasion to redeem them from ispersvons, particularly the calumnious reproarh as of ignorance, of superstition, and unfitness for ell - government, which he said bad been cast on hem from various quarters. Mr. Forsvth. hairman of the committee of foreign relations, xpressed nis satisfaction at the intimation thus made by the speaker ; and plxdged himself, when ne occasion arrived, to defeod the policy pur - ueu vy me uniieu states, in regard to the con esi in souin America. I he sense of tho house appears to be aeainst 'egislating on the question of expatriation, oo the ground, that to prescribe the niodo of xrusiug i fundamental right, is to assume th iiowcr of limiting it, which power, it is contended, does ioi belong to congress. I he questiou is one, it must be confessed, surrounded with dilHculties : m which, however, the able debate which has taken place will have shed a light that may lead o me auopuou, at a luture day, ol a di - liuitive ule ou a point regarding which, it appears, th pinion ol congress aud the decisions of lh courts 1 the United States are at variance Prom Me New - York Daily Advertiser of thtsl morning.

BARBADOEP, Jan. 24. A pirate defeated. 'I he following is an account ol a successful defence performed by capt Mtilasliam of the brig Margaret of this port, against a pirate oo the 13tn October, the Uas alter leaving St. J homat's " At 9 1. M. a cutter rurged vessel came bearing down from windward and hailed us, order ing us to heave to ; at the tame time crossing our stern on our demanding who he was, he instant It fired on board of us. carrviuz away part ol our running ritrziur : ariiu hailing and orderiu us instantly to tend our boat on board. Beiug rather unprepared to make resistance so unex pectedly, the beat was lowered and the niaiter proceeded alongside with his pai ers, and w as questioned concerning bis c irgn, and if he had not a quantity of dollars on board ; and was ex tremely anxious for information regarding Ame rican vessels, apparently wishing to lall in with them. Wishing to know what he was, caj.t. VI'G.' enquired if he'wat not an independent privateer; he bluntly, and with much hesitation mswered, yes; ordering him On board again and lay to till morning, when he would board bim. Immediately on getting on board, with the advice and assistance of Mr. Stretch and Mr. Llewellyn, passengers, we resolved to defend the vessel with our lives, being convinced that thej were determined pirates. Got our guns in order, when she came up alongside of us in the I unrning, under I'rench colours, and again fired into ut hauluiz down hit f rendu and hoistin i red flag (the signal we supposed for boarding) when we gave him suc h a reception as he little xpected, from a well directed fire from our 3 aine - poundcrs, which were loaded close up to 'he muzzles with round and wane, and coopers rivets; soon afi - which, nearly cleared hi. deck l an tne men. On our cheeriuj him in the moke, he instantly dropped the peak of the mainsail, wore round, and taiade the best ol his way towards the land. We made tail after him it i II firing into him, but from hit superior sailing ne soon distanced us. or we should haveraptur.d nun, as only three men appeared on deck, tbe eraair.der killed or wounded.
