For Ihe Xtw - Yark F.rening Pott.

A few words iu addition to those of my anonymous correspondent. The subject ol pauperism is one that has long cccupicd my miud, and the conclusions which years since I arrived at, observation anil reflection have served to con firm. With respectful deference to those gentlemen who have lately taken so active a part on this subject, I beg permission to surest whether they have sufficiently atttuded to the vast differ rnce there is between Die population of the Uni ted States aud that of other parti of the world that though there the population fooietimes t x teed the means of subsistence, and want nnd famine consequently ensue, aud must !c provided for by extraordinary means, yet that i - ' not the case in any part of thit country, Dor w ill be to for many ct uluries to come when that time ar rives, it will be time enough to rovide for it ; tulhcitut for the day is the evil thereof. Bui the great vital prinriple cf pullic charities und private too, should always be, that relief should be exactly proportioned to industry, aud that, unless iurasri vdicre the supplicant is incapaci tated by illuess, lameness or decrepitude, charity should be scrupulously withheld from every one. On this, the on'y true and tale basis, is founded 77it Hocii' the promotion of Indiu Iry; and i am confident, If it wat only a little improved iu the detail of its management, it certainly wants, no human institution can be framed that will better answer the purpose ol the benevolent and considerate that is, to adord relief to those who deserve it, without iucreaiug the temptation to idleness, which it to justly lo be apprchc - uded from too ready, indiscriminate aud uurellt cling charities. The society it con - fiJed to frm.tlcs : Let il have the advice aud ai - . i; tame f tliose who are able to give then, and it luund upou a fair experiment to answer, let a similar institution extending lo males be esta - 'dished, and I very much doubt whether any thing bcltir can bt devised.

As to the existence of tha practice or telling their cast - off uniforms, at public tale, I have never otwerved but one inttaoce of it, and it cec tainly is not to general a lo implicate the character of the regiment, unless that be effected bv the olficiout public interference of 4,Citizeus," who, if desirous nf protecting the reputation and promoting ihe welfare of that cors, would express their solicitude throu. - h tome oilier channel than a public print, wh. - ie it was most probable it w ould escape the observation of those most interested.
