WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8, It is nw the second day since the editor of the AJvocate ventured, in tbe fce of (he public, to tall sm that Mr. Riker denied the charges I pre - - . ... . ,Ti...,rJj',us.,dtLeIile. Sofao malum isealenlat - ferred m - U Ppw tzimu mm, - i - . me to come out with the names of the partie alluded to in lb case I stated by way of supporting Ihex charges j and in'.iaaal'ng that if I would do this, an explanation should be given 00 the part of the accused, to which, 00 the came day I replied, that if Mr. Noah would only say, that be was authorised by Mr. Riker hiaelf te make that pledge, I was ready, and would give both names and dates. Two days have elapte.l, and the editor is as silent as the grave. The infe rence irresistible. But I am charged, in cer tain papers, with acting from party consider tioni, and with particular views towards the individual. I regard this as a mere trick to torn attention aside from the principal question. Surely it is of very little moment to the public, by what motives 1 am supposed to be actuated, compared with the facts which I stated in the most explicit maimer, concerning an officer to whom is committed the guardianship of our most precious concerns. It is not enough that our conrU of law are not known to be guilty of iniquity, but in order that the community should repose that boundless coafidenre in their integri ly which aloue can command respect, there onght not to exist ground for the most remote suspicion. More than suspicion has here been openly intimated, and that in no equivocal terms; yet is not the least attempt made, in any shape, to bnug the truth of the facts to issue. Will the public rest satisfied that Mr. Riker should remain the principal law oliicer of the city of N. York, while no step is taken to clear np tho im putatioos that hang over him .' Silence alone shall not protect him : it is by resignation or re moval only he can escape still further eximsure Let him then consult his future peace by listening to the voice of that prudence, which no man 'a more apt to tonsult,aad seek safety in a timely retirement. I would certainly be the last man to load tlie unfortunate, or even to press ujion the guilty, beyond what tho necenity of the tasc may require for the good of the puldic, but I am too far advanced to retreat, till I have complete - ly fulfilled my duty to this community, From Albany We learn from passengers in the team - boat from Albany, arrived this morning, that the Senate passed last Monday the bill to incorporate the Franklin in this city, with a capital of 500,000 dollars. They at the same time rejected the applica tion for an Interest Hank, and a Coal Companv in - mis city, witu banking privilege. The Cherry Valley Hunk bill which was supposed to have received its death blow in the Aenute has been reconsiderad in that body, and pas' sed by a majority of five. TA Grand Jury now silling, have, we under stand, found bills of indictment against several of the lottery - nlfice keepers, for the many ille gal practices which every body knows some of them are iu the habit of committing ; but which, omthow, have hitherto, escaped . punishment : and Ihrnby hanp a lule. One of them has been tried by the petit jury and convicted of the abominable and scandalous practice of insurauc ' uncrs are likely to follow in bis track. The graud jury merit the thauks of every honest man in tlie community for their vigilance and hide prudence. Mrt. Frenrk'i tecond toncert is to be given tomorrow evening at the City - Hotel, and wo trut it will be quite sufficient t ensurn this lady a large and respectable audience merely to men - ui.u uie simpie laci. i no Baltimore papers have rcpubli. - hed the several paragraphs in the different papers here respecting hertant concert, accompanied with expressions of their great re spec! and esteem for " this amiable aud accom plished lady ." J he letter respecting her which appeared in this paper, is republished there wilh the observation that " it does honor to Hie head ind heart of the writer." His lion CD. CoUlcii, mayor of thU city, arrived 111 the steam - uoat tins morning. Usury laws - .vo. h. ino interest 01 mor.;v 11 that compcuialion hich the borrower of money nays to Iho ItnJer tor the use ol (he loan ; it is the rent ol cao.tal let to hire. The laws which fix a rata (or this compensation are termed utury laics, because mat compensation which exceeds this tale is dc nominated usury. These laws declare the loan. Inch a greater compensation, than the one fixed by the in, is reserved, to be out of the tiro tectum of the ordinary means of coimicllinsr nav meut, aud punish with penalties tho actual re ceipt ol such compensation. 1 110 iiiii - rtrM 01 uiuury ueiieniifl niton Uuee ' k : . . 1 . . 1 , , . . thingi: the intrinsic worth of the lo:in, lu - rok of its not being paid, and the cotuparutivo plenty 01 capital 10 lie loaned, compared with the a - mount wanted to be borrowed. To illu.trale ihis, iipioe a mrrrhnnt by the common xer uon 01 nia luiiiiMry, from a capital ol f 1000, to lay up 100 a year; his industry he values at KjO, which leaves as the value ol his rani lal. he wc to withdiaw this iiotio iroui ousineKi, ami loan 11, ne would estimate its 1 . .. . . . valuaat j0orS percent; but, Irom the ordi nary acriJcuts to wl.ich traders are ri;oed, there aro probably two chances in a hundred that the borrower will Dot be able (o 1 av him he therefore adds th! value of this ri - ic. t ner cent, to the worth of his capital, 5 per cent, and supposing uo competition to exist, either among those who wished to borrow or those who wished to lend, he would loan his money at 7 per cent mierert but 11 mere were a number desiring lo hire this 1000, they would bid up on each other, which would raise the rate of interest ; so i tbe oilier baud, if there were but fc who wished to borrow and many who wished to lead. the leaders would lessen their terms, in order to obtain the preference, which would lower the rate of interest. Uu the above statement it is to be observed : 1. That the capital to be loaned is in the hands of tlic rich : it is in fact the surplus capital of a country, oeyoud that wkscn u used tat trade by uie owners tnemse res. It ss trne that soma proportion of the capital, which is to be had on loau, n in the hands or those who are not rkJi, hut are incapable of using it io trade, as legacies w - , uie tironertv ol unmarn.I crnnn and tbe like; but the chief account i in the nand! of those who have .pore property thaa they wish to ue in their own business, or who r!.reJ frDm in U 10 Uvt 0I the'"" w'h. i t. That the acrid - uti of trade, against the effect of w! ou tbe borrower, the leuder in - ures hinvelf, by tbe premium of? per eent, are hose unavoidable ones to which common iW.ej - ty 11 liable, and against which ordinary prudence aad industry cannot secure ; such as fire, unfoe - tunate purchases, the bankruptcy of other tra - - 7 . the borrower. No mercbint should deal, and very few will, with men. woe be thinks will not pay him. lie con fides either in his knowledge of tlie industry and integrity of tlie borrower, or in the value at which the latter'estimates his credit, or in the compulsory power ol the law, as security for bis being paid. Againtt tbe dishonesty 01 me Dor - rower, 00 calculation can be mnde ; no data ran be tikeo out of the recesses of his heart by which this risk can be calculated; every individual would require a different rule, and the loaning of money on interest would become impractica ble. Besides, taking a premium against the risk of dirhonexty, is too base a contract for men who are not rogues lo engage in : it is like a has band's demanding a dowry with his wife as a premium of insurance against her infidelity. No honorable man would ever borrow money when he knew that the item of dishonesty in him entered into tbe interest. No prudent man, (whose interests oolv are to be protected by laws,) would ever lend his money when he must insure himself against such a risk. The advo cates of utury do indeed say, that this item should be charged in the price of iutercst ; but it is well known, that those who practice usury are of all men the most cautious ; and that although they may pretend that the insecurity of their debt re quires an exorbitant interest, yet they do not e ver lend unless they confide in the honor, the credit, or the pledged or personal security of the borrower for the certainty of a return of their money. The law too must always consider it .elf (what it is its duty to be) competent to com pel payment from the dishonest. Wnd tlie soon er those men, whose dishonesty must be insured against, arc driven from trade, tho better will it be for society. 3d. That the value of capital or the price of loan has not the same tendency to fluctuato, which other articjes have. The cau. - e of fluctuation in the price of other commodities is, the scanty or abundant production or importation of them, while the courumptiou or demand remains the same, or is increased or diminished by some other cause than that which occasions the plenty or s arcity of the article : thus 111 the case of tlour, (he r rop being scanty, the price must rise, be cause the demand must remain the same, or may he enci eased by some cause ; such as a war in a foreign country, which cannot eucrease the quau tity of (lour raised. But the demand for capital, as well as its value, increases with its abundance aud diminishes with its scarcity ; and thus the prop or lion between the quantity required and that lo be procured remains the same. For as a merchant, by the flourishing Hate of trade, finds his capital rncrcased beyond his disposition or power to employ it, and as credit, for the same cause, becomes so vigorous as in some mea sure to supply the place of capital,' and in this manner the stock of the loan market is augmented by the same flourishing condition of trade, new adventurers are induced to engage in it, and those nil taily engaged, to extend their opera lions: so that the plenty of capital, and the de mand for it, are encreased by the tame cause On the other hand, when the declining slate of trade lcteng tbe demand for capital by diminish ing the inducements to engage in it, it abo, by making the accumulation of wealth slower aud by making capitalists withdraw their loans in or dcr to makte them more secure, makes the capi tal to be had on loan scarce, aud thus counter acts the effect of a lessening demand. Any person may observe that as business becomes brisk loans are easy and yet much sought ; and as it becomes dull, they are more difficult but are sought lew. In this particular loan differ from other ccmmodities, by having tlie increase and demand alwayi increased by the same cause. 4th Loans also diner from every other arti cle of traffic in another particular: they know no variety ol quality. All other articles vary in quality ; lands, merchandise, ships and houses are of every variety of g.mduess. Out the quality of a loan knows no variation. it is believed (hat on these remarks we nipy rest the position, that regulating the price of loan is not liable to (hose objections which lie against filing tho price of every other commodity, as corn, house rent, Ireight, tc. Loan diH - rs so much from every other subject of mercantile dealing, that all objections to fixing its price, derived from the analogy of other articles, are fal lacious. It will now be akcd, why, since it is so much the tendency of loans to keep a certain level, whv does the law interfere in fixing any rate as the highest which shall be taken. This question, involving the obe' t and operation of tho usury laws, will be considered ui our next number. OLDSCHOOL. To this position, the Ediiib. Reviewers as sent, although they oppose the usury laws, vide ISO. SI. " COMMUN.VATION. Rrgulalion of tlmpt. Tho late ordinance of the corporation, relative to the building of slows, may give rise to a question as to the inteution of the law, by reason of the doubtful meaning of the term. The term slwn, is derived from the Dutch word stoiptn, to ait, and according to Hexham's low Dutch dictionary, tentto'p banekr minus " a seat or bench to sit on before a home." Formerly, altuo.'t every house iii our city, had those seats or benches, called in Fngliah sloops ; but of late yean, they have generally disappeared, and the platform, or porch, or whatever else it may be called, is no longer firnished with the tloep or bench. I he term sloop, therefore, Iocs not seem precisely to designate the object intended. The term - pnrrh, and the steps ot the porch would perhaps be tbe most correct expression. CI VIS. From the .Illany HrgisHr, April 7. Horulrr. A fiesli Cod, broucht from New - York, a few days since, in the btottni - Uoat. anil purchased by .Mr. C. Dunn, was found to con tain a livini Turtle of brlu een 3 and 4 inche in diameter ! Thi heretofore invisible char acter, it we understand, placed amonir the caninei or cuurioaities, at irowunclge s Ma scum. from the Georgia Journal, March 24. 77le ,J nni Our advices from the army are to the tills of this month. At that time the (eorgia militia were within twenty miles of rorlhcott. Their march had been much impeded by bad roads, some parts of the route be ing almost impassable. We understand the troops generally enjoy good health; and, not withstanding their privations and suffering, are in line spirits. No additional particulars have reached us re specting the disaster which befel general Gaines aud tiis little party, 111 descending t hut river. An oilicial report ot all the circum - tances con nected therewith, will no doubt be made. An affray, of a verv serious nature, nrrnrred lat week at I larttord, between some citizens of that place and wagoners in the public service on the one side, aud a portion of Uie Tennessee trooii! stationed near there, on the other. Capt. Chisolm of the latter, was killed; and several of the combatants severely wounded. With the merits of this quarrel, which led to the shed iiu; of blood, we are uniformed perhaps both par lies were 10 biame. we regret to state, how ever, that tbe conduct of many of the Tennessee troops, since they came among us, has not been such as it should have been. Instead of culti vating our good will, tbey have teoght. it it be lieved, every opportunity lo wound and inflame the feelings of fair inhabitants, by bestowing 00 them various opprobrious epithets.

We have soniecouluwd accounts, by nite arrivals Irom Algiers, of outrageous conduct on the part of the Dry, to tbe families of 1 uiopean consuls resident there. Tliere is so niucli evident table in these accounts, that all that we can rel on, is, that tlie present Dey ol Algien is, asiuos. o the D ys h r.,re the last have been, ol a f ro - ciou and vindictive temper, regarding no l.iw hut his own will, and the disposition ol the Jan issanes . The following titract of a letter appeared in a Philadelphia p.if r nearly a month t.go ; aud v.e find it. after this interval, now transplanted into the columns of the Baltimore Federal Gaiette. What is the object of it, we are not at a lo - s t conceive, but it is proper that iditors who have hern thus imposed upon should know that, tr. iu information which is to he relied on, the wln le statement is untrue ; and that Woodbine t, whtre ttiis article wishes to make us believe be is not. Extract of a letter, dated Kingston, (Jam.) January 24. to a merchant io Philadelphia. I am highly amused in perusing your files of late Philadelphia paper wherein Mr. or Capt. or Col. Woodbine is said to be at Pensarola and Rampa Bay, and also among the Indians, exciting them to hostilities sgainit the Americans. He has been in this town for some months, to my certain knowledge, transacting mercantile affairs, and has not been near the Creek or Seminole Indians since the latter end of 1 8 16, when he went there for the purpose of b' ingiog up some white men to Nassau, N. P. to give evidence in a law suit he was engaged in, and with no political object whatever. If you knew, as many do here, how he has been neglected by his owu government, since the peace, the United Slates need never expect an enemy in him. I have been Intimately acquainted with' him for 20 years and his family for many more, and I never knew an individual so unjustly villified as he is by the A - mciican newspapers." CO.W.RESS. IN SEN ATK Saturday, April 4. Much business was done, of which a detail shall be giwn in our next.

O n or two gentlemen replied to Mr. C. und no nicition was jiredi' atd on the objection. The bill concerning u.ivig .lion (lor countervailing the British colonial policy) was rend a third time, parsed with only two dissenting vc ices (Mr. Lppesand Mr. Wilson) and sent to the other bouse fur concurrence. HOUSK OF KEPRKSKVTATIVES. Saturday, April 4. On motion of Mr. Taylor, a resolution was a - dopted, instructing Hip Secretary ol the Navy to report to the House during the first wtek ol (he next session, a particular statement ol the expenditure of the appropriations made by - the act tc reward the clfi ers and crew of the frigate Constitution, am: of the Wasp; (lie act tore ward the offi. ers and crew of the sleop Hornet, and lie ut.

Mr. Livcrmore submitted the following rcso lution : Resolved, by the senate and house of repre sentatives ol the Uu.led Mates ol America, 111 congress assembled, two thirds of both liotise concurring therein, that the following amend ment to the constitution of the United slides, br proposed to the legislatures of the several states, which, wheu ratified by three fourths of the said states, shall he valid to all intents and purposes, as a part of the said constitution : " No person shall he held to service or labor as a slave, nor shall slavery be tolerated 111 any state hereafter admitted into (he union, or made one of the (J. otates of America." 1 lie resolution was read, and, on the ques tion of proceeding to its consideration, it was dc tided in the negative. ' MY. Smith, of Md. laid on the table two arts of the British parliament, one an act of IHOj, t consolidate and extend the several acts relating to the West India trade, and the other an act of 03, permitting the imjiortation of rice, grain, and flour Irom the British iNortli American colo nies into certain ports of the Wet Indies, and lo allow certain articles to no imported from th United Slates into the urithh possessions in North America, lor tbe purpose of being exported to iiritish inlands in the West Indies; which acts were ordered to be printed for the use of mem bers of the house. I he engrave J bill for the relief of major - ge neral Jacob Brown, to establish a port of entry at Cape Vincrnt, at the fork of Lake Ontario i the River St. Lawrence, was read a third time and passed. I he amendments of the senate to the general appropriation bill were considered in a committee oi the whole bouse, agreed to by the committee, and concurrr d in by the house. And the house adjourned. From t,',e Albany Daily Advertiser of April 6. The bill for incorporating (he Hu.lsou River steam - Boat Company, passed Uie Senate on Sa lurd.iy, unanimously. On Friday the senate agreed to re - considcr the vote rejecting the application for a bank at Cherry Valley ; and on Saturday the bill passed in committee of the it - bole by a majority ot seveu. In tho lioue of Sicrul ly ou Saturday, .Mr. Col len presented the petition ofAamurl Whi ting, an insolvent debtor of the city of New - York, setting forlh the unju. - t and oppressive ope ration of tlie insolvent law passed at the present sessiou. Mr. Colden moved that the petition should be rrlerred to the committee of the whole, when on the bill introduced by Mr. Thompson for amend ing the insolvent law. Mr. Colden said he desired to make tnis reference with a view to introduce an additional section to the bill to which he referred, which he pre? timed would remedy the causes of complaint which existed to the present law. Mr. Colden said he thought it would be cruel for this legislature lo adjourn without giving the complaints which were so loudly - heard on this subject, a due consideration. The provisions of existing laws in relation t insolvency were such as prevented a very great portion ol the insolvent debtors from availing themselves - of the benefit of them. He thought the subject leserving the immediate attention of the legisla ture ; and therefore should more that the bill which be had mentioned should be the order of tbe day for Tuesday. - Mr. Root opposed the bill being the order of Uie day, 00 the ground that there were always too many orders of the day. Mr. Sharpe also opposed the bill boiog made the order of the day. He urged many reasons why the bouse shenld not be further occupied with the complaints of insnl vents. The bill was referred to the committee of the whole fgrejabry to the motion of Mr. Colden, but his proposition to maka n order of the day - ,.t,..i 11 uiohaUe ;nai inn - uecniuu ww. 01 event any thing further boiug done 00 this sub jeet at the present set - ion. - snru 1. j;iV,iimmen.Seteral attempts have been made in the house of assembly, to fix the time kr the adjournment of the legislature. Mr. Sharpe yesterday made another attempt, ry introducing a remdution naming the 20l(l instant ; but afierward namrd me ima. ueuui" opposed it. He said the people Irom inu west ern country had been caning iouuij iui and that we have a number of bills upon our U - this subject, which have not ytt been acted upon. 7'ne toiry - rs, said he, hare behar'd le ratals, and the people have become maig 1 . .... 1 if ii.i. ipsnlni.on for an ad num. o" 1 - jo imoieiit at the lime meutiontd, we shall re '.,mi,ellid to nas over tbe many important bills lor a lefnrui. now before us. c;;irf the lawyers Kill he left 10 roam at large, still to pick the pockets of tlie prvple.
