Mr. C again adverted to the manner in which the eommiMiorere bad been appointed, which be - ins - done not accordinor to law. wu the more improper, u they had not sailed till after the meeting of Congress, when it would have been scarcely any detention to have wailed thecon - currence of tli Senate, which wu in session when they departed. Mr. Hopkmson rose, not to make anr cn - uiry or objection, but merely to express his dissent to this appropriation, because these commissioners had not been submitted to the Senate according to law.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL I. LETTER HI. 7b Richard Riktr, Eiq. Rettricr oAe riy of SIR loth diichargs of th duty which low to this community, as sditor of a public print, I son time tines addressed two letter to you ra - apeoting your judicial conduct in admitting a thief to bail, who wu taken and brought before you under circomttances U)at rendered him not bailable by law. In that case the felon fled the Uni ted States, and, according to report, destroyed himself ; his recognizance wu escheated, but the sureties yon took were so utterly IniulEcient that no attempt wu mad to compel payment by a legal process, or wu abandoned u hope - lass and thus Jwtire was arretted in its course by the assistance of the very man whose special duty it wu to take care that the laws shoold be faithfully sxscuted. This abut of your judicial power wu so clearly mad to appear, and the pernicious consequences to the community, pointed out, that you found it prudent to submit in silence to the exposure, nor had you a friend in (he city who ventured to alter a syllable in your defence. Being given to understand that you saw and acknowledged your error, aod ex pressed a determinstinn to b mora circumspect ia future, it was not thought oecesrary to follow up that letter by any thing further at that tins But, sir, your conduct, u recorder of this city, hat long been such ai to convince every man of reflection tbat you are utterly unfit aod incom petent to exercise the duties of that office, and I cannot, without (he deepest self - reproach, ab stain from arraigning you one mora at th bar of an injured and insulted public. Let those who till aflbrd jeu their countenance and support, continue to do so, if they dare J but I shall take car tbat they shall have no room to pretend that tbry were not acquainted with your mal practices in ofc. f nch a series of misconduct, in the perform - aaceof your official duties, both atyourchaa ben and u presiding jndg on the Wnch, hai com to my knowledge, that I am somewhat perplexed, I confess, where to begin, or what to select : Th task I have iidertakea is difficult, bat I bop not imprarlicabl. , . . I shall aot deal ia vagu and general charges, but if yoo will d a the honor to accompany a, I will particularix in plain language, a lew cases, oat of the numerous one, that hare oc - carred, upon which I rely to aak good my charge. First thsa u a judge presiding in oped coart. n action for slander, EdsaO vs. Dsvin, wu tried befor you aot long sia, a th aay - or's court, la which yoa, very, early a tb cats, manifested a strong bias, as ia usaal with yoo, in favor of one of the parties, aad perhaps It waa sa honest bias, although I do not vary well comprehend how a judge, in Use trial of a causa, caa 1 be permitted to shew any bias whatever : Ta aUon. Itwutnuth rxaaideat p Mm pt i - 'r'y rSld ec, was that ( words, ad; luiug iiiem l havhea spoke, a: alleged, wer f tbemisl es, aot V liooable ln law j and te shew .tLa'it lud been o adjudged, both k Epglaadaad by o asm saprssa coart, Johnson's Report wer adduced, aad cases in point wer cited. Tb law was so dearly laid down, ia behalf ef tb tV&odant exception,' that no room wu left for construction or evasion, yoa, therefore, determined aot to b foiled, boldly declared that the decisioa wu aot sound law, and told th Jury they wer not bound by it 'And m vmir eliarre. von labored to the utmost of 4 www . your abilities to induce them to believe that your opinion ought to b taken as their guide, rather than that of the supreme court. Nay, with th saa view, you stated to them sevsral cases in th r ports of th court of errors, to shew that tbat court had reversed some of the decision of the supreme court ; or, ia your own words, to shew tbat th " saprem court were not inalii - bis." Nor wu this without effect the jury thus misled, returned a verdict for the plaintiff, directly in the face of stablished law. To say nothing of th senseless conceit and arroganc ibis discovered, or of the Indecency of an attempt in a judge of a lower court to disparage the solemn decisions of bis superior!, ia order to establish a belief in Disown infallibility at their ax pence, what, let me uk, must b tb consequences of such an outrageous attack aponthe principles of social order and subordination, so vitally essential to the well being of the community? . I now come to the practice yon have adopted at your chambers ; indeed, both at yonr chambers and on the bench, of granting orders of court, ahaost without restriction or limitation, and with - oat troubling yourself to consider any thing but the foes of office. ta conformity with this prac tice, among other things, equally absurd and improper, you have granted an order commanding plaintiffs to stay proceedings in the supreme court itself,:forbidding them to proceed to trial - orders, which you knew were nugato ry, and coald not be obeyed, and had you not lost all sense of propriety, must have known were highly indecorous as well as highly irregu lar. Another instance in ' which yoa issued an order, at which common sense revolts, wu for the clerk of the supreme court to alter a record filed in his office, so u make it tally with the plaiutiff'a declaration, in a cans in th mayor's court befor yourself. But th clerk had tb good sense to refuse a compliance, aad to treat the order with contempt. Ia both cases, you took car of the one thing essential, and pocket ed the fees. Popului me sibilat, at mihi plaudo, Ipse domi, simul ac nummo contemplor in area, This granting orders of course to all ppli cants in all cases, without any discrimination, has becom so habitual, that it is exercised by yoa in all situation and on vry occasion, not only at your chambers, to which the practice ought, generally speaking, to be confined, but on the bench during the trial of causes ; which, however important, ara suffered to proceed, and evidence to be taken, or counsel deliver an argn meat, while the whole attention of th judge, who is to decide upon the testimony, aod afterward to sum up the facts to the jury, b engaged busily ia taking tee and making change, th gingling of which is heard u a sort of accompa niment to the trial. In this letter, you stand charged with having rendered our courts of justice odious, suspected and contemptible in the eyes of tha people ; it will be the business of another letter to make appear that your administration of th law bu been neither pare nor impartial. Creensrsca netnortaf. Ons of the Albany pa pers having asserted that the legislature had re jected the memorial of A. Hammond and others, inhabitants of Greenwich, we this evening, at the request of the committee, publish the report en tire : by which it appears that the legislature approve the plan submitted by Mr. Hammond, and recommend to th corporation to abandon (he present plan. Mr. Sharps, from the committee, consisting of uie mcniDcr aiiauuiog mis nouse irons ins city and county of New - York, to whom wu relerred the petition of Ueorge B. Rogers, B si uey, du otners, REPORTED, That the committee have heard the alien tions and proofs of the petitioners, and have given the same their serious consideration. - The matter complained of, (which is the regulation of the streets in me village oi ureenwich, and its vicin ity,) is of such a nature that it is difficult to un derstand it correctly without a careful exatni nation of the ground, and the assistance ofsxpe - nsnceu surveyors, r rom - ine iniormation, however, In the posseation of tha committee, they rest under an impression, tbat the regulation complained of will subject the owners of the property ia that vicinity to great and nnnecewary expenc. . Justice, however, to the commoo council of the city, requires, that tha committee should state that the regulation of those street was determined upon at tb importunity of the owners of the property in their neighborhood, that th subject has been long under consideration, that they employed experienced surveyors to devise a plan, and that the one finally deter - rained oa wu the result of mature deliberation ; that upon th application of tb petitioners, it wu reconsidered, but u they proposed no other pian, no auerattoa was made in it : as, however, the petitioners have now, by the aid of an experienced surveyor, projected a plan which, ia (he opinion of the committee, is preferable to the an adopted by the common council, they eatertaia no doubt but that upon suitable representation being made to th common council, they will readily reconsider the eubject, and make such alterations in the plan which they hav adopted, u a doe regard to the interest of the petitioners, the particular situation of the proocrtv to be re gulated, and tb permanent welfare of the city may require, aad the committee are confidert if the common council shall think proper to alter or abandon their present plaa, that they will take into cooasdaratioa the situation of soma of the ia - babitaats of Greenwich, whose all is represented to be involved by the regulation complained of. The ooeamittee. therefor, racamaend tha adan. tioa of the following resolution, vis : Resolved, Tbat th petitioners have leave to withdraw their petition. .

Frm Ms JfatiAial Inldligtnttr M arch 30. it rfkt MthiiJi has occuDied the bouse of representatives for the greater part of last week, was brought to a close on Saturday, and resulted in a vote of oa hundred and til teen to forty - nv against the proposition oi oir. viay so mane an appropriation tor sending a Minister to the United provinces of La Plata. , The discussion was able and quite as interest ing as any we have beard in that house. It covered a wide field, which was very fully, freely aod boldk traversed. The decisioa which has taken place, is, that it is not thought proper now to make an appropriation for an outfit and a year's salary for a minister to Buenos Ayres. The reason of that decisioa, in all their modifications, we will not rob nur renders of tha satisfaction of learainr from the debate which will be placed before them. We will only say, generally, that the resolution was advocated u a measure which would enlarge the power of the executive, and relieve tb mind of the president from all doubt of the disposition of Congress to sustain him in recognising the independence of La Plata, whenever he should deem ll expeuieoi so uo so, wnicn ne wouiu wiuiu j uo as was inferred from his having sent commissioners to that country, whose favorable report might be daily expected. The proposition was opposed, as premature and unnecessary, unless intended to be obligatory ; and, if intended to be obligatory, ft incompatible with the spirit of ine constitution, wnicn no reposcu wnu uie executive the duty of conducting our intercourse with foreign powers. This is a brief statement of the argument on the proposition, which however occupied but a small portion of the debate ; in the course i.f which the conduct oi uie government oi ine united States in relation to that contest, and our relations with all the uatlons of Europe, with Spain particularly, as bearing on tha question, were re viewed, ll wu anirmea on ine ene nunii, inai tlie proposed meuure, without benefiting either the Republic of La Plata of this nation, might involve the peace of the United States, which is . . i . i . i - 1 1 l. a i. , 1 eswniiai pone v. un uw uuicr umuu, u u denied that the recognition formed a grouad of otlehce to any nation : but, it wu at the same time contended, tbat if the mtasnre would afford countenance to the Patriots, and benefit our com mercial interests tn any degree, it ought not to oe avoiuea irons uie appreueuiion, oi exciting the hostility of any foreign nation. On this branch of the discussion, the Law of Nations was investigated, and the examples of History were adduced an illustration of the arguments on both sides of the question. Interestinr as the reader will conceive these views of the question to have been, we will frankly confess tbat there wu another feature of this debate, to as not leu so. It may not hav es caped the attention or the reader, that no gentle maa of the Federal Party participated in the Ue bate they stood alool irom the controversy not we presume, because as citizens and legislators they did not feel a deep interest in what so near - lv concerned the nuhlic welfare, bat because they resranled the Question u on on wnicn in no - publican party was seriously divided, sad on which they wer willing to leave the floor tree for tbem to comnat eacn otner. it cannot, ii it ought to be, concealed, thai the Republican party in tb House, besides distracting th public councils, might hav diffused itself among the people, who have little expected, and are aot prepared for it. It may be inferred, therefore, that there wu occasionally rather too much point in the debate, rt tmi te.miaatea, nowever without an open rapture s and the sentiment with which Mr. orsyth concluded his remarks on Saturday, we hope, will prevail in every b re ait " Where the difference between us," said be, " is so small u on the question before us, however anxious we may feel for tb success of our particular views, I hope that anxiety will cease when the question is decided. Whether the motion be a dopted or rejected, let us recollect nothing but the ability aad the eacemess which bu beea displayed in the contest, and feel nothing either or uie oitieruess oi ocieat or oi to joy oi in umoh." W do aot know whether we have succeeded in convevina to our readers an impression that the debate wu an important aod interesting one ; but we certainly leit it be Dotn ue one and the otner.
