Putnam' character, by hit ton, from the remorselets attacks of Gen. Dear born, will bo read with pleasure by every ge nerous heart. The tourii - marlial We are not yet prepared j to examine this subject to tbe bottom, and to declare our opinion, in a very plain manner, a we have long intended to do, of what appears to us the most arbitrary and opprewive conduct, ever practised in any country under color of law. But, although for tatisfactory reason, we thall pott - pone the examination, let it be understood that it is only a postponement not 'an abandonment of the cause. Possibly, we may, after a thorough investignticn, discover the fault is in the law, and not in the execution of it, if to candor will demand of a the acknowledgment of it, and Justico aliall be tatiafied in carrying the blame, for great blame there it, to the right account. In the mean lime, we have juit received the following information : That the courts - martial are still in session at 1'ou.rlikrepsie : An order wat issued, we are told, requiring the court to close its pro - J cctdingj, and be dissolved on the first ofthe present month ; but, by a subsequent order, tbe lime was extended to tho 1st of Jnne And we undrrtt ind that another order has issued to them to recousider a certain class of cases. Mixwell, as judge - advocate, has already re ceive:!, at we are informed, one thousand dollars in advance. His actual attendance has been a - bout 45 days ; in more than half of which, lie merely came into court, rpened it, and then ent away to attend his district - attorney's busi - uess. lie claim, it a taid, to be pa - .d bis salary since he was first called out, about four years. But it is a question, by no meant settled, whe ther any member of tbe court will be paid for more time than while he was in actual service. The tuarshall and hit deputy have collected considerable sums in the district where the court is uow sitting - , upwards of 6000. Qut of this sum, he has bteu authorised to nvike ad vances to the court. Two of them have accord in - !j called on him, but he had nothing lefi. Do the people of this country wish moaey to be in this way collected from the hard earning of the poor for the purpose of rewarding tbe officer.1 of thv government for such useless ter vi ces Methinki it would be much hetter.if govern ment would furnish thcmselret with tile money they want for this or any other purpose, by collecting it from delinquent pay masters and quarter masters, and district clerks, than by wring - in; it from the pocket of the militia. More anon. tjud taxation Under tlus bead the Colum bian contains a eomplaiul in writing of the pre sent mode of assessing the taxes, signed E. C. Gcnet,aod by him laid before the last grand ju who, however, did not aa upou it, under au impression, he says, that the object in view re quired legislative aid, but which lie Hunks was erroneous. He new projioscs to bring the sub ject before) the common council, and preparatory to so doing, he addresses tha citiicm. Tbe fol lowing cxtruct is given merely for the purpose of eipliumu more particularly hi views, without mt.uing to express an opinion ou the subject : " Tho personal etate in the city of New - Vorlc has been valued in round sum for Uie year Il7, to 20,9W,000, and the city auj sUle lax on personal estate hare amounted for the same year, collectively, to $97,000, and as it is Known inai me aggregate capital or the incorporated banks imurance and commUnon companies, excl'in - of the branch of the Tiii'tcd itnlcs' bank, amounted, in 1817, to about t wen - y - one millions nine hundred and sixty thotiiand dollar., it murt ba, considering the itn - meuse personal properly held in New - York, beside harr in the said companies, that the as - ei'ment of 1817 ha very lightly touched, if it ibu ioui ueu m aii, uie uauiung capitals.
