TUESDAY, APRIL!.. Strmc riming ml large in tht itrtets The fcllowioj note relating to Uua subject m received m few weeks tine, bat this it the first opportunity we have (band fur iU insertion. Mr. Editor - r - l beg leave to submit to your ' eoasideratioo, and to that of yoar readers, to idea respecting the law of the corporation of t kit cut. which permit swine to stray through our street. ' ' 1 pre a me that the common council can make oo regulation m derogation of the common law. . We are entitled to be governed by (hat law, in so far at it may not be inconsistent with oar insti tutions or. expressly altered by statute, now, - keeping hog in a city," is a nuisance at com moo law, and the statute 2 W. & M. Bess, t c 8 8. tO, is in affirmance of the law, as it stood of old ; vide 1 Johntoo 79 89. As this statute is not perhaps incontitteut with ear republican institutions, the aid of the ieguia - tura must first be invoked, before the common council can pass such an act. Tours. sc. BEDE. SHARKS. I thank Bade, who, I take it, is a professional man, for tbe'suggestion in the above note, as it has served se put me upon the true tract in pur suing this matter, and enables me to place it in a new light before the citizens. . He is mistaken in supposing that the corporation have passed law licensing swine to run at large in our streets they have passed ne Mich ordinance, and if they had 1 should be much inclined to question their autltority to do so. They have lately repealed a particular ordinance authorising any person to impound stray hogs, until a certain penalty was paid, with costs, because it was (band to operate, as was supposed, injuriously to some of the outer wards t but this repeal left the hogs just in the situation they were before. We have then to enquire what that situation was. Had or have the owners of hogs the right to turn them into our streets f I sower no, tbey had not. It is ettled taw, that bogs running at large in the pa. ved streets of a city is a nuisance ; consequently, that the owners of them are guilty of an iodicta ble offence at common law. The remedy is oh - vkros find out the owner of any hog and com. plain to the grand jury. I hope this method may at once be resorted to, instead of teasing our readers any longer with complaints against the corporation for permitting this grievous evil to exist. Those inclined to look into the law on the rubjert, may refer to the cases above cited, from Johnson, Salk. J, 260, 9 Co. 67, 68, and the authorities there quoted. Id these cases they will find it decided, that keeping twine in the fared streets tf city, uhcre the house art contiguous, is a nuisance at common law'. I should suppose it may be safely laid down, as coming within the principle, that it is a public offence to keep swine in the streets that are paved, but not In the outer wards where the pavements do not extend. . In publishing the following numbers it is not to be understood that we do so, because the opinions maintained in them are in exact conformity with our own, so much as to afford a fair chance to 'man to be beard who writes well and appears to have thought deeply on his subject , USURY LAWS No. 1. The age seems to have gone by, in which the antiquity of any institution in society was a pro tection to it, and appears to have been succeed' ad by one in which the hoary honours of lime and usage only disgrace and endanger. So rapid has been the course of modern sagacity, that it has already decreed as absurd, superstitious or bar barons, almost every institution which our ances tors thought politic and useful. Of old, it was thought wise ta direct the channel in which the irrestrainabla current or chanty should flaw Formerly, private credit was considered so va luable, both to the morals and commerce of a na tioo, as to have its stability connected with the fear of imprisonment and dependent upon the lova of personal liberty. Anciently, it was deemed wise to hold forth the fear of death as a preventive of crime, in order that the violence of wickedness should be counteracted by a motive powerful aad instinctive, as the fear of death; and war, as the only means by which the indi vidua! member - , of a community can be prote - . ad from outrage aud its public rights from viola - Uto, was thought lawlul oven by the most scru pulous Out now the poor are to be left to the Indiscretion of casual charity because a public interference with their support will make them idle dobter are not to be deterred from extravagant living, gambling speoulations or hardy fraud, because it is cruel to put a man into so comfortless a place as a jail j felons and murder ers are to be restrained ty me leafroi connne meat, aud are to be reclaimed in a penitentiary ; ami we are by no means to fight, became the loveliness of meukness is such as to be abetter salt guard than strength. What you may think of these things, reader, I know not some regard them as the dawning streaks of the day of human perfectability, and believe that we shall soon see the tarnished honours of Alchemy gilded with a touch of the philosopher's stone, and made unfading by the elixir of lifb. My expectations, I ' conrnM( are less sanguine. I see no change y et in human nature, by which its depravity has be coma kss to be dreaded or its wisdom more to be trusted, and I cannot but view the dilapid lions makinr with so much esgernew, as the de struct ion of wise systems, long established, to wht hour manners ana reeling, are conlormcd, and to whose usefulness trial has given full proof. With this idea, I cannot ret still and see the hasty hand of theoretical wisdom pull down every thine that is reverend, and sport with all that ban been provcJ useful iss society. Among the giants which modern chivalry ha? nleriaken to destroy, are the laws against oau - . ry. Tact men Rre charged with many enormities ; they are sai'l to have been born of papists, and to be guilty of greater extortion and villainy than they were commissioned to suppress. Ne vrrtheless, these monnii rt of thrfcucy have bean avprnvvft. for manv ge by men of great wis - d - m, have Vwv m - i it iu. - 1 their nnk in society, have generally nTnil.l themselves to the feeling. ii m ..WiH, and are, by very many, believe J to have r e society im;nrtnt benefit.

Ojefls lilte these mstt be favored by the .wishes of all thinking tea, and the measures ealculated to proaaU them will not be deserted because tbe defend ers are decried as iroorant . prejudiced and bi got ted. To offer an apology for these laws, isj the object of the present a am hers the plaa of which shall be, first, to she w the nature of inter, est ( second, to display the objects aad operation of the taws against usury, sad third, to examine the objection so frequently and conauenuy urged again these laws. It is however proper to premise some remarks upon the maxim of policy, not (a legislate loo much. Doubtless, trade is often impeded and the public good prevented by the shackles of legal interference, and perhaps mercantile wisdom may, io most instances, safely be left to protect mercantile interests. Tat there are certainly cases where the law may step in and give (rent satisfaction. And we nave the practice of commercial nations from the earliest ages down to the present day, m favor of the expediency of an interference, to a certain extent, with Ibe bust ness of merchants In ne instance does this in terference seem mora proper than in the case bargains for the loan of money, because they are commonly made when the embarrassment of oue of tne parties, and the power or the other, pre. veot the exercise of that coot calculating wisdom, by which mercantile dealings in other cases are carried on. It is therefore thought fair to warn the public against shutting their ears to the apo logy of the usury laws on account of the gene ral truth, that trade does but when ten to utelf a maxim which will, I trust, be made to appear inapplicable to the question under examination. OLD SCHOOL. Having published a few days since an article from a Kentucky paper, stating that the bank of St. Louis bad suspended payment, justice de mands that we should now, give the cause of that suspension. Besides, it will serve to show how affairs are managed io one oi our new sis ter states. from Hie St. Limit On telle of Feb. SO, PROTEST. Territorv of Missouri, I County of St. Louis. "' I, Joseph V. Garniar, a notary public, in and for the county of St. Louis, in the territory a foresaid, duly commissioned, at the request of me president and directors or the bank or st Louis, statiug, among other things, that on Wed nesday the eleventh day of February instant, s meeting of the board of directors of the said bank, being held at the banking bouse of the said bank, (being discount day) after the business of the day had been gone through, a certain resolution was offered by Joshua Pilcber, a director, supported and seconded by Elias Rector also a director, having for object the removal from the office of cashier of said bank, of John B. N. rimith ; which being earned in the affir mative by a majority of two, (ten of the direct ors bring present) a motion was made by the said Joshua Pitcher, that the board proceed to the appointment or election of a cashier, which being also carried, tha board proceeded to the election of a cashier, when, after two ballots without effect, on the third ballot Theopbdus W. A'mith was declared dulv elected the cashier of the said bank of St. Louis, by a majority of four votes, three votes being in the negative. a:id seven in favor of the said Tbeophilus W. Smith. f nat upon the result of the election being made known, three of the directors, then present, to wu, tne said Joshua filcher, tlias Hector and Robert Simpson, tendered their resignation as directors of the said bank, which being recorded, their seats as director were declared vacated. and an entry of the same was made on the mi nutes or th - proceedings of the said board of directors. That shortly after, a tumultuous as semblage of persons was seen in and about the naukiug house of tha said bank, iusturated, it is supposed, by the said Joshua Pilcher and Elias Rector, in consequence of the said election and appointment of the cashier as aforesaid, and for oo other cause as is verily believed. That the said Joshua Pilcher. Elias Rector. Tho. II. Ben ton, lieut. James M'Gunnegle, of tha army of me united Mates, Thompson Douglass, Stephen uecror, i nomas rianley, John Little, Jeremiah Ooonor, i aylor Berry and colonel Darnel Bis - sell, also in tha army of the U. States, with others, at present unknown, did, as they also believe, enter the banking house of tba raid bank, with an intent forcibly to wrest from the presi dent, directors and officers of the said bank the possession thereof ; and did actually then there pais a resolution to possess themselves of the keys of the outer door of the said bank, and did accordingly, or one of them for the whole, and in the nauie or. the whole, actually take posses oo of the same, and having ordered out 'he su noruinale olficers of the bauk. did lock uu the dmrt thcrnor. The raid president and direct on further state, that the aforesaid Johua Til rher and others, did afterwards assemble near the said banking house, at the counting room of the said Joshua Pilrher, and then and there demanded of the president the delivery by him of - the keys of the vault of tha same, which being relufccl, they did afterwards, on the e - vening of the same day, KTiin assemble to gether, when the following resolution was a - tnpted, to wit " iwsolved, that a commit tee of five persons be appointed to take charge ol the keys or the bank, and to have the custody of tne ranking nous, and deny admittance U the said governing directors and their officers, and will assist in putting them out if .they run admittance by any means." A copy of which was lelt hv the ad Joshua 1'ilcher and Jeremi ah Conner with Eli B. Clemson, the president pro tern. legally appotnled by the president, who was prevented from attending by indistotitioa. I hey the said Pilcher and Conner, in conjunc tion with Thomas II. Brentou, having previously declared to the said Tbeophilus W. Smith, the cashier of the said bank, that it was their determined mtenlion to carry the said resolution into effect, should an attempt be made to reg iin the possession of the said bank and banking house i which said declaration and threats thus made by the said Pilcher, Connor aud Benton, far themselves, and on behalf of tha aforemen tioned Elias Rector, James .M,GunneglelThomp - son Douglass, Stephen Rector, Thomas Hanly, John Little, Taylor Berry, and Daniel Bissell, the said parties thus protesting had no doubt, aud verily believed, would be carried into exe cution should an attempt be made at regaining the possession of the said oank and banking' bouse t whereby and wherefore all attempts at the same have by the said protesting parties been thought useless and even dangerous. After wards, to wit, on the twelfth day of the same month, Theoiitiilus W. Smith, the cathier of the said bank, made of the said Jo - hua Pilcher, Thomas II. Benton, and Jeremiah Connor, a demand of the keys of the said bank, which were deuied him. Col. Eli B. Clemson, the president P. T. also made a demand of the keys aforesaid of the said Joshua nlcher, and the same were refused and denied him ; whereby the said president ami directors and tba subaltern officers of the said bank bare been prevented from attending to the duties of their respective appointments, to the great damage, prejudice and detriment of the said Bank of bt.

In' the United States of America, where the system had no opposition to encounter from old prejudices, it is spreading In all directions; the southern and western provinces seem io eviove more than ordinary seal. Mr. Shaw, a member of the committee, now on a visit to America, in a letter to the treasurer says, ' I have seen at Cincinnati 40U emiureo assembled in one of these schools the building (of brick) was raised by subscription, and 1 think it superior to any I have ever seen at home. Lexington and Louisville have alio considerable on the plans the scboo's at New - York are in a flourishing state, as well as in many other large cities." He remarks upon a scnooi ior me cnu - dren of Africans at New - Tork : " never was any one more highly (ratified than myself on visit ing the school. Whether the uunsual sight nf 300 Africans in an unproved and improving men ial state, made me look with partiality on them, I know not i but I conceiva that there was more order there, and more strict attention paid to the system, than in any school which I had visited. In one corner was an African prince attentively copying the alphabet. A young lad about 14 years of age was reciting passages from the best authors, suiting the action to the words ; another was working difficult questions in geography, tic. In fact, let the enemies of these neglected children of men perform a pilgrimage to New - fork, and at the thrine of education recant their principles, and confess that the poor despised African is as capable of every intellectual improvement as themselves."

The court this morning gave an important decision in me above case, it was a writ ol ha beas corpus, directed to the keeper of the debtors apartment of the eity and county of Philadel phia, who returned that he detained the body of the defendant, by virtue ot a warrant, issued by the brigade - inspector of tha 1st brigade, 1st di vision of Pennsylvania miutia, to collect a fine of two dollars, for not turning out an the dan of training, pursuant to the militia law. The' defendant, who is one of the people called quakcrs had never made any election to be enrolled or to have his name placed on the list of exempts, and the court were of opinion that it was not required of him to do any act, or make any declaration expressive of his desire to be considered as an exempt ; the mere circumstance of his silence, (they said,) was sufficient to authorise his name being placed in that class. But the coifrt also decUred tlieir decided opinion, that the proceedings of the court of appeal, who had jurisdiction of the case, were conclusive, and could not be inquired into, cither on a suit against the officers, or on a habeas corpus. On another point, relative to the form of the uarrant, the court at pre - seut gave no opinion i but they intimated that they would deliver it on. Monday, the 13th of wis monin. TaiTO!r, April 6.
