There appears to be an annual disposition for the red ad ion of salaries of the public offi cers in this state i and toward the close of each eeesion a schedule of sslaritt thu redu - " cod U presented to the legislature for concurrence. Whether the recommendation will meet with attention this session we are unable to aay. - The talary of the governor Is recommended to be reduced to $5000 chanceilor$3,500 - judge fVOO - secretsry of state $ 1,500, fcc .There ia a vast distinction in principle and. effect between profusion and ninrard economy and the medium, which it a rational spirit of . liberality, will be found in the end to benefit the public service. No public officer should 1 be permitted to devote hia time and talents to the service of the state without an adequate compensation. The salary of the governor it, bv no mean, exorbitant if he discliaee his duty faithfully to the state be Is deserving of it i and even at the extent it it lie will find it difficult to Iky up a portion for future timet. The ia!rie ofthe chancellor and judges of aueme uourt, it any ititng tnouid be increased We have an admirable tench of judges which, fur talents and integrity, are not sur passed at a body By sny on the continent. Every effort which the people can make to ren. der them independent, contribute to their comfort, and promote an active application of their judicial duties, they are bound, and it h theirdutytodo. The secretary oft tat e.instetd of$1500 should receive $2500. Tbetreasunr, comptroller and attornt y general, if any thing, abouh! receive an addition to their salary. If every officer it appointed in con ideation ofj nit talents ai d usefulness, and not for hu political services if he devotes his time to the in - creasing interests of this great state if politics, management, and electioneering, forms no pan oi nit auues, aosoi ds no portMii ol his attention, men he menu a liberal piovision be fully and unequivocally deserve an ample remuneration i and to every faithful officer the tate faithfully will bold forth a reward com' mensural with hi services. It would be well if the state would provide salaries for tv ary important officer, and let the fees go to create a fund. A flairs should be simplified arte uugauon uitcouragea. Intertrting Law Inltlligenee.Oa Wednes day 15th March last, a cause was tried in the mayor'i coort of this city, before his honor Uie recorder, which excited considerable interest. The plain tuT had purchased two watch seals from tne defendant, a watch - maker and jewel ler in tnitcuy, lor j is m) each. I be defendant, at the time of sale, warranted both seals to be gold, one of them 18 carrats fine, and further warranted that they were gold throughout and not casta on any tpunmu wutal. Upon applying the file, however, to the seals, they appeared to be made of copper with a very thin covering of I gold, so uun, mat it was slated bv the plaintiff'. counsel, in opening tne cause to the jury, that an experiment made upon a seal similar to those in controversy, shewed the whole Value of the real gold to be from 80 to 100 cent. The plaintiff navmg proved xna sai and lb warraoty, ex ammed various witnesses to prove the fraud ; among tlvose caned by i be plaintiff, the testimony of doctor Mitt. hill was very satisfactory. The doctor having pronounced the seals a gross fraud, observed, that ia all indenture of apprenticeship which had fallen under hi inspection, the matr was pound to leach the apprentice three things The art, the trade, the myitery. The art, ha considered to be Um manufacturing the arucie ; me iraae, me requisite skill to briar it advantageously into market the mattery, the cheating part of the business, and he was deci dedly or opuuoo toe teals in controversy belonged to the mystery of the trade. A verysetrenuoos attempt was the mad by the defendant to brinr the seals within th war. ranty, and in the attempt (the scab being of wmuiujiuiH wanuiaciurej um deleodant was supported by all the ingenuity of various agentj of Birmingham manufacturing bouses, and of the its porters aad venders of the article, who labored to convince the court and Jury that the seats were not what the plaintiff called them, a xrei fraud. One of the most intelligent of time ;tn when pressed by the plaintiff's counsel to ac - count for a peculiar mark made on the gold by Um application of aquafortis, relieved himieli from the difficulty by tertifW thai he bUai there was ae pure aquaftrtit in this country, to Um great amusement of Dr. Mitchill, who in - tormea tne court tn a subsequent case that if uviw was sw pure eewysru in the country there were those ia it who could make it pure. Various evasiaas and ingenious distinctions were alto saade bv the Titnimi li ! stab, actual gold sds, and solid gold teals, and fjtw i khio, arc. After a very pelieot bearing of the cause from 1 1 o'clock A. M. until P. M. His honor the recorder charged the Jury that the fraud wa completely made out. and the fury without h:. tattoo, pToeoooced the seab fraudulent, and rare bis Oo the ewuiog ity, - oOm turn the tame aatan wa tried a tbatataecewn taia other jeweUen of this city, tathts caseooe of the eatUi parcteeed by Um pWV w,w'" ranted " sold gold," of Uw aad Tomes' - porUtkm, aad upon Um applkatioB of Um file, the copper displayed itself ia like manner a the other seals.

No, it will take mora lime to look into this business, with a view to doing justice, than th council spent in the bribery and corruption affair of the man of tbe mountain oi Thibet, and more money than would suthc lor the payment of all our wares, and ore and no - fteneve for a whole session. No none of your jutuce, Mr Confutxe, but let us be generous - let ne give a pension to every one wlio worked and did not work at th wall to every on who in fact looked at it for 9 months, while it was building it wu a great work, secured th empire from the ia roads of the Tartars. 1 here are men, laid a Mandarine with a blue button, there are men who carried the hod for seven years and lived on scarcely any thing but a gill of 6am - cbu a day will you place them on no better fooling than the 9 months men? what justice is that? Justice! lull you, replied Hononton - qua, the litUe general of the short legged division, I tell yon, we are not here to do justice, but to be generous let tbcm all fare alike, master and servant tar, rag and bobtail We will be generous generosity will not be pleaded as a precedent but if we attempt to do justice, and by rule, O dragon of China, what a door will be opened ! what a crowd of calamity ! So tbey gave the workman and lookers - on each the same weight of silver. A V OLD SOLDIER. Kxtract from a letter, addressed by John D. Lewis, Esq. of Bt. Petersburg, Nov. 24, 1817, to a renUeman in this city. " I ha v but a few minutes to write this John Levelt Harris, the American consul here, has at last succeeded in getting my brother thrown into a loathsome dungeon, for having pulled bis nose." If Mr. . should be in New - York, tell him that my brother is bow in prison.11 Without any particular reference to th per sons or circumstances above mentioned, the occa sion reminds us of a subject which hat frequently occurred to our thouehts, vis. the expediency of calling the attention of our government to the past conduct of oar public agents abroad, in those instances where there is reason to suspect that they bav abused the power or trust com milted to them. We are far from intimating mat toch abuses nave been general, or even common, and we are ready to believe that many of the reports which we have heard cannot be lofficienUy substantiated by the evidence of fact ; but, if rumour hat not very much muled as, there are instances in which it will be found that tome long arrears of misconduct remain to be accounted for and if tbe half that has been told at it true, it certainly mutt become an im penout duty with the government, not only to indict an exemplary puuithuent for past olfen cet, but to resort to tuch measures at have not been hitherto adopted, to prevent a recurrence, for the future, of similar dUrraceful evils. If, on investigation, it should appear, that, during the period of the late restrictive system in Europe, the national character of our seab of office was prostituted by any of our consular a - gents abroad, for the corrupt purpose of giving laciiuy 10 uie iraue oi subjects ol lo reign pow ers, from viewt of private emolument ; if it should appear, that any public Brents of this de jcriptioo did, during the period alluded to, receive certain sums of money, for verifying the papers oi vessels ana cargoes, ostensibly American, or arriving from American ports, but well Known lobe the property or subjects of the theo belligerent powers, or arriving from belligerent pons i ii a mourn appear that any or these a - gents have atnamed fortunes, by thus setting op for tale tbe integrity of their otfirial documents, the reponiihility of their stations, and the dignity and honour of the nation they have representedif these thinrs do appear, who will deny that the character of the individual or indivi.lii. als, on whom these atrocious facts shall ha nmr. ed, ought to b held op to public reprobation ? Who will say that such persons are lnnrr wnr. thy of the confidence which hat been reposed in them ? If these things have once taken place, haw can we be assured that the occasion, and th disposition to improve it. will not arain occur: and if this is possible, does it not become a duly in the government to provide arainst a luncture so much to be deprecated By a lata regulation, a measure which we hiihly approve, no person can be invested with the powers of an American consul, who b not a citiieo of the United Slates : but there are some other requisites for this important station besides that of even naltte citizenship. A consul ouebt lobe a person of sufficient maturity of are : of uuicienisoiiuiiy oi character: ol correct moral deportment ; of tome respectability of taleut : of some responsibility of property, either of bis own or of his connexions ; and above all he should enjoy the reputation of an inflexible integrity - He appear anionrst hit countrymen abroad at almost tbe only magistrate to whom they are a meaable ; and ha should be entitled to that re spect which neither youth, nor levity of conduct can inspire lie appears amidst the circle of his fellow citizens, not only as the representative of government, but also as the only superior to whom they can look for an example ; and his conduct ought to be such as not at least to deteri orate the morals or the manners ot those around him He k not only occasionally charred with the diplomatic interests ol bit country, but be it also, Jrom tbe nature or nu station, frequently calUJ upon lo discharge the functions of an ar - uitrator and or a judge s and be ought to possess that portion of discernment, that degree of ex perience, aod that compass or acquirement. which will afford to bis decisions the stamp ofj huj an asm correctness tie is not only vested with powers, by which, if inclined, be may com - prount Um pecuniary or political interests of his vvuuur, out ne has also, from bis situation, frequent opportunities of becoming posaemed of the property of hit countrymen t and he ought to be P8! of that responsibility of fortune which . "rce to the injured in case ef I r .? u rPtnhtv aitherofhbown or of others, because if he b not poeseased of it U his ewn means, his friends should enter into thai recognizance, for him wo th roTtrumrot, which would a&rd ft riffideal Htw fee ftcatka wheaaeed might require. M.m sirh mm Kaen aDOMBted to Uu OfBce I Have such precaatibc bean taken? On toe contrary, hare we not reason to believe that rtutr hire been iostaoces ia which the unliauua confidence of the government bat beea given to aten abroad, who would never have been trotted ia the smallest degree by their countrymen at homer Aad this too without the least security rr - tha rrwvl eandoct of the individual, either mm hi own enneetnent. or from Uiosa of others in his behalf. H Care of the American Eagle. Hoyt e. Gtltton and Schenck. It appear from Uie report of the committee of Way and Mean of March a I si, mat css. Gelston and Schenck, Uie collector and late surveyor of thit portjiave petitioned congress to dsv Uie condemnation money awarded a - gainst them for seizing the above vessel ; we have noi seen me peuiion iw uni fore examine it, but the report of the committee states, " That information wa received by Uie executive that Uie American Eagle was fUtinr out at New - York for fetion, that Uie circumstance wat communicated by the tec - retary of the treasury to Mr. Gelston, with instruction, that if tueh should be the fact, to top her departure under the act of 5ta June, 1794, that a correspondence ensued between Uie secretary snd Mr. Gelston, and on the 6th July, 1810, the ecretary tted to Mr. G. the opinion of Uie President, that Uie veseel ought to be immediately seized and libelled, as fitting out for illegal purposes, unless the owner should girt iniJoeery proof t the contrary, that the etener did not gir such proof, and that in consequence the vessel wu seized and libelled in July, 1810, and acquitted and restored to the claimant, Mr. Hoyt, on Uie 24th August, 1813 ; the district judge deciding tint it the vessel had been destined for or even sent to Petion. it would not be a violation of the laws of Uie United State, they then existed ; that in consequence of this decision, Mr. Hoyt sued Gelston and Schenck, and recovered a ver dict for g 107,000 1 and that all Uie appeals of the defendants to the supreme court, court ot chancery, and court of errors of the state of New - York, and the supreme court of the Uni - 1 ted Etate, had been unavailing, and the verdict now affirmed with costs that Uie information given previous to the seizure, has since the decision been proved to be correct, and that the illegality of the seizure resulted from construction being put upon an act ot con gress, ditirrint from what tne executive ex pected, that Uie large amount of damages is attributable to the delay of the trial, owing to the lickntst of the judge, and that the circumstances tehith increased or produced the verdict were not tn any degree imvutablr to Mr. Gelston a Co. The committee therefore recommend to congress to add a clause to the appropriation bill for rliscliai eini: the above ludfrment." The report was laid on the table for further information, which a correspondent thus ena bles us to give, and as will be seen is a com. plete negation to Uie principal facts stated in the report. 1st. Tbe first information in relation to the American Eagle was given by the custom - house or its agents to the at Washington, and not at stated by Uie government to them r or this our correspondent eelers to the correspondence on file at Washington, and to Uie as sertions which Mr. Osgood (the tbea naval olh cer) uniformly made at tbe Urn and since. 2d. Mr. Ueliton was only authorised to make Uie seizure, when be should ascertain Uie fact that tbe vessel wat fitting lor relwo let Mr. G. took no trouble to ascertain Uui fact before the seizure, and after the seizure refused all proof upon the point, although Mr. Hoyt ten dered tuch proof and offered to make the tame satisfactory this can be fully established by Mr. tloyt and bit counsel and others. Tbe set of 6th June, 1794, did not authorize the seizure, because St. Domingo, not being an independent stale, wat not within Uie provisions of the act, aod to this causa is to be attributed lite solicitude of the treasury, which find itself compromitted ia the construction given to thit act. 3d. No stronger evidence can be afforded of tuejuttice of Mr. Hoyft claim, than the uniform decirioo of five court (three of th state and two of the United States) m his favor And Mr. Gelston and the committee cannot now be permitted to allege that they have new and conclu sive proof, when they knew of tuch proof and failed to produce it for more than seven yean, while the suit was depending. 4lh. " The large amount of damage 'is attri butable to the delay of a trial, owing to Uie sickness of the judge," &.c. This allegation b unfortunate both for Mr. Gelston and the committee, because it is not true : it is true that judge Talmadge wat sick during a part of the lime, but it is also true that Mr. Hoyt was ready and willing, and offered verbally and in writing, and several timet formally petitioned to have his cause tried before jude Livingston, the circuit judare of the United Mates ; all which overture and petition were opposed by Mr. Gelston : the delay, therefore, was solely or prin cipally imputable to himseif. Witb the same view, to diminish damages, inr. noyi irequeouy applied, both verbally and in writing, to have tbe vessel aroraised and bonded, and this mea sure was also opposed by Mr. Gelston ; and once in particular, after the vessel had been appraised by men of bttown choice and politics, be refused to have her bonded, though he admitted the trooducss of the security : the increase of dama get was therefore solely or principally aiinouia - ble to Mr. Gelston also, and therefore both the delay and increase aro imputable to him. The records of the district court, Mr. Iloyt't counsel, ana Uie appraisers, can au suosiauuaia these fact. There are other considerations, which are important to determine the quantum of relief which lr. Gelston is entitled to in this busmen. II Uie vessel had been condemned, Mr. Gel ston wat entitled to, and would hav demanded, one half of th forfeiture ; having been acquitted, he ought in justice to bear half the lost ; and if to this is to be added the delays, increase ol damage and costs, including counsel fees, to which ha has exposed tbe parties, his share of the loss oueht to be much more than a half: beside too this business of seizing and libelling vessels is s profit and lost account, in which th profit which Af r. Gelston hat already received, will enable him to pay this lou without serious inconveni eaee. At all events, it merit serious consideration. how for congress can justify themselves to their constituents, to take $1 10,000 out of the public purse, to pay me uebt oi an individual, particularly so, when five of the most respectable courts in the Union have decided that Jsfr. Gelslon's act ware neither authorized by law nor Uie fact in the case. A CIT1ZEX. From the Jfalionml Intelligencer, April 1.
