TT..: Kinntr, anu ine outer uau iu uic w ui "' " - ted States." - Tho parties were all arrejttd and taken be fore juJ;e Livingston yesterday arternoon, when Xv&3)et, Mr. Wells, anJ Mr. James Stoujh ton, appeared ia support oflhe prosecution, and . Mr. J. O. Hoffman, air. David B. Ogden, Mr. liurr, and air. I'almer, lor me ucicauanis The counsel for the defendants moved to have their clients discharged altogether, or if held to bail, they insisted that they shoulfl, under all the circoavtances of the case, be recognized to uppoar at the next term of the Circuit Court, in a very - small iuv. This motion was made on three grounds : 1. That as the prosecution had beep commenced without any direction! on the part oQie government, or plication by the districHiUorury, it was irregnlar in its inception and oht to bj immediately discontinued. 4 S. That Mr. Aguirre, (to whose caalone this ground applied,) was a minUter from the government of Buenos Ayres to that of the United Slates, and coul J not, therefore, be proceeded n;Vtu - t in this way, 3. That to constitute an offence against the thirJ ection of this act, tha vessels must not only have been fitted out with iutcut to be thus era - ployed, but aeluallj armed for that purpose ; and many depoiitiona were produced, proving that neither of the vessels were or ever bad been armed. After an argnmont of these points by the respective counsel, judge Livingston decided, 1st, thsfoo imtructions wre necessary on the part of the president, or any other oScer of gnvern - meut,to ju - tify the usuingof a warraut for the violation of this or any other law nor had the presideat any riht to interfere with the proceedings which had been commenced in this case, by giving any instructions to him on the subject. Nor was it uccewary that the application for a warrant should be made by the dutrict - attor - riy s ai auy individual might rompl iin of the infraction of a law, and hs considered it his duty to award a warrant whenever complaint was mado to him on oa:h of a crime's baing commit ted, whether sucb wa'rant were applied for by the diitrict - atlorncy or any other person. 2nd. As to any privilege which Mr. A guinea' com - ntitcn conferred on liim, the ju lge was of opinion, ihstthis gcutlemnn, not being accredited by tin prffi.lcut, and the independence of Suenos Ayrcs net being acknowledged, by the goveru - mcut cf the United 6'iau, he was liable to be proceelctl gaiast forany oSence wliich he might! commit agaitiit our laws, in the same way aa any ! other individual. On the 3rd point, the judge j t'iou;'it no ofloace could be committed against the third section of thi act, miles? the vessel was ormtd as well a fitted nut with intent to be employed, &c. 1'hht it does not apprar by any - r 1 1. . .

Iu the case of a principal, it was clearly wcrssarf by ' the very terms of tho law, to render him criminal, thr,t the vessel should be fitted out and arm cJ. Those, therefore, who were knowingly concerned iu tbe furnishing, fitting out, or arm ing of such ship or vessel, must alio be consider ed as innocent, until au actual armament took place, or this absurdity would result, that one nwu miht l ave a vesel built and fitted out for this purpose without beingguiHy of anyoffeuf, while the whold penally of tbe law might be incurred by a person who should furuih her with a sirgls suit of sa:!r, or a cable. As it respected tte - ore of an armament, the difositions on which the warrants had issued, were not only ilbtr altogether tiltn - , or quite insufficient to prove bfi kct ; but those on the part of the de fendants e'tWi - h 1, beyond roatroversy, Uiat neilherof the vessels, aUhmijh no doubt built tor wrl,Ve purposes, had vtr been armed. Jii; L.vii.g'ton was therefore of opinion, that ncith - rof tho panics arreted had commit trl a - y offence, aad ordered them sil to m dis cnarjed.

Jlfu'f Diz - Several mad dogs have lately made their appnarance iu New - Bruns'vick, N.J. and have in their rovingj 1 it mauy other dog and some valuable cattle. The inhabitants have become much alarmed, and the common council, in roD'cuuencc - , held a special meeting of the Board, yesterday, at which they parsed an ordi nance, oruerm; every owner ol a Uog immediately hi de - troy or securely confine him, under a pcuatiy often dollars. This was immediately printed aud stuck up in all their public places. A mad dog punned another to the stoop of a Mr. Vanlaver, at Millie Buh, about 6 miles from Brunswick, which he seized and tore, and turning to a child at play, he gently lit Led its band, and then run furiously to the barn, where was a slut with pup, two of which he killod, and bit the slut before he could be destroyed.

It may also be alleged that he could seud his ship from Amboy to some other port than .New - York : true, but will thn help him f IV o. for he then bas fresh port charges, additional wages and provisions, together with commissions for buying or procuring a cargo for his vessel ; and every chin owner will inform you that the disbursements of a veseel are always far higher when the owner is not on the spot. It is not, however, the merchants of other State? of the Union only that have this advantage over the New - York ship owner; but foreign ships daily take the same advantage, in the same manner, without delay or expenses as they are generally bound to southern ports to look for cargoes relerenre to a hie oi your paper will show yon that this is the cae. The Erili - h ship, however, in the passenger trade, takes an advanlage over all Americans. By their laws, all vessels are prohibited from carrying to foreign countries more than one prr - sou for every three tons; but this law U a dead letter as to their own vessels, though strictly enforced oo others. The general manner of evading it is by clearing out for one of their colonies, and finding the ports of tho United States the nearest way to them. Congress could certainly easily rectify this, by declaring any vewel coming from their ports, who bronht more pas - engers thin what their laws allowed American vessels tn brin?, liable to confiscation here. I hare always understood, thn, by the con stitution. Congress only had the right of regulating and taxing commerce : How comes it then that a vessel should be made to pay more in thir port than in a port only 30 milos from it ? or why it that a vessel should land her passengers at Amboy without any Hospital Duty, and must pay it at New - York i That some remedy should be found to place the New - York ship owner, in his own harbour, a footing with the merchants of other State;, the opinion of more than B. Ventarola. The following interesting article upon this subject is just received, and, we are lad to perce ive, is in accordance wilu the opin ions confidently advanced iu this taper. II Spain can fulfil the condition of tbe Treaty refer red to, well ; if not, better. We say, again, it Will termiua'e in our acquiring the Florida", and that before many months shall hare, elapsed. - ' - j " - - j The President of tbe United hwies has, we undersUnd, decided, that t'ensacola. and the other Spani.h posts, which have been taken by Cen. Jackson, in the Hondas, shall be restored to the Spanikh authority but with a re quisition, that the Kin; of Spain sh.ll, hereafter, keep such a force in those colonies, as shall enable him to execute, with fidelity, the hfth article of the treaty between the dated States and J - p - in. That article, so far as it affects this subject, is in the following words : " 1 he two high contracting parties anall, by all the means in their power, maiauin peace and harmony among the c - veral Indian lialiu - i tvlio inhabit the country adjacent to the lines and rivers, whiJi, by the preceding articles, form the boundaries of the two Florida j and, the better to obtain this effect, both parties ob ige themselves, expressly, fa rerm"n, by fwee, nil hotliUtiet nn thf pai - t of the Indian na tion living' wit Mn their bouniliiry ; ti thnt bpain vUl not tuffer her liiJiant to attack the cwizens nf the United States, Wir the Indian inhabiting the:r territory , nor will the t inted Males per - nut these lasi mentioned Indians to commence hostilities ajrainst the subjects of His Catholic Majesty, or his Indians, in any manner whatever." On the strict execution of this article, on tbe pa - t of apui l, it is understood that the l', e - mltnt riirnrutisly msUlu ; and that it was the failure to fulfil it, which produced the ne ce. - sity of crossing the Spanish boundary, dm - injr the preent war with the Seminole Indians, 'l lese tribes occupy the lands on the side ol the line between the United Stntei and Florida ; inue b the greater part ol Ihein liviug within the limits oi the kin oi tiuin.

That bit op - nroceeded froifl motives of tbe purest patriotism, and from his conviction, tha t u ',JS end holdine those posts, he was justified by the necessity oi thecase, and was advancing the best interests of bis country, the character ol General Jackson forbids a doubt. Oflhe important lacts allcsed by him, satisfactory proof, it is under - trui.1. has hues alreiidv fnrniihed to the Presi dent, and proof of the other facts is conndentlw exprciea. Il is niniciiie iu anion hk; utnc, - ri. so totallv reerardleMi ol the amicable rela tions between Spain and the United Statis, so directly repnenant to the stipulation of the treaty hnve minted, and in themselves, to hostile and even cruel, will be avowed and adopted by Ihe King of Spain. ve trun mat iney were mr fhoriwH arts ol lib neents. But should ihey, contrary to all rational expectation, be so avowed and act ipted ny inai sovereign, irimi be little doubt that tbe means oi annoying us innu that quarter will ere long be taken from him. by the de inoq of the competent authoiity, to be restored no more. In the meantime, as Congress, only have the powrr, under onr constitution, of declaring war, and bad made no such declaration against spain, it it understood that Ihe President does not con ceive himself authorised to retain tile Spanish posts, inasmuch at such retentioa would be an art of war. It is oo this ground, we understand, that the resolution has been taken to restore the posts, and to demand front the king of Spain the punishment of those officers, whose improper con duct lea to uirir seizure. The President no duubt, aees, in common with his countrymen, the ureat advantages which the United States would derive from the enwte possession of the Florida but, confes sedly great as these advantages would be, he is not willinsr to ram them, but by the sanc tion of an Act of Congress. To have retained these posts, under present circumstances, would certainty have had the eclat of being a strong measure : but we hope never to see a President of the United Mates itisposed tn tie stronger than the Constitution of his country fur that is the palladium of interests far more sacred, and of infinitely higher import to the general cause of human liberty, than any acquisition of territory, however vast or advantageous. Notwithstanding this unexpected collision in the Floridas, we trust that the relations of amity between the two nations will be pit serv ed ; nor can we abandon the hope, that their differences may j et be settled, on fair and ho norable conditions We may even indulge the hope, that the incidents which have grown out of the Seminole war, however adverse their tendency may have appeared to be, may contribute estemiallv to produce that happy re sult. Spain must see, and hat practical!)' confessed, her iucompctemy to maintain her authority in the Florida, against the Seminoles and foreign adventurers ; and we hope she will see that it will be much wiser for her to cede those provinces at once, than to attempt to hold tli em on the impossible condition of fulfilling her treaty with us ; or, on the condition now brought home to her, by experience, of subjecting herself to perpetual collisions, and eventual losses, which she may now avoid with case and lutnor to herself. From Ihe Avgusla Chronicle, July 15. The following extract of a letter to a gentle man in this place, from a source that entitles it to the most implicit credit, opens a new vista to the character of Ferdinand, and ti e Spanish ca binet : from this it is evident they have long expected the United States vrould take possession of Florida, to indemnify themselves for the spoil - a'ions committed cn their commerce, and that while they were making the fairest promises to do us justice they were so far from intending to comply with them, that they were actually la - boring to prevent us from doing ourselves tnat justice which they knew we were entitled to.

We learn that the pri vateer schoo: e', t:ink iu Jekyl Sound, was fitted out at Savannah, a few months since, under rne of M'Gregor's commissions, that among other prizes, she bad captured a large Spaui h ship, irnn OM rpain bound to Cuba, having on board about SOi) .as i.gers, including women aud children; thee they had plundered of all their valuables and clothing, leaving many of the children nearly in a state of nakedness; when the was I alien in with nv me liuenus Atrean one san anin.

The crew of Ihe privateer were taken ont.aud a prire master and crew put on boaid ber but in the course ot ine nigni, mis crew ro:e uiion and confined the prize - master, and shaped their course for the Uuiled States arrived off Jeky) Island, the y lauded whit property there was on board thn privateer, together with some fire arms, cut nway her masts, and she drified ashore iu Jekyl Sound. It was the intention ol these aesperaunes, when tbev landed, to have defended them - selves on the Island, but they thought better of it, w hen they beard that a detachment of U. S. seamen was coming against them, aim decamped, leaving on the island, absilt thirty muskets, but concealing or carrying off wbb them most of their ill - gotten plunder. It is supposed that they made Tor Savannah, f rom some circumstances which have transpired, this privi.tcer is believed to be tbe same w hich robbed the sch. Sight, capt. Sylva.oftbis port, as atated a few' days since, and as her crew are in confinement on board the San Martin, whose commander threatened to have them hung as pirates, they may yet meet with their deser's, if brought into the United Slates.

The second concerlOa jVonday evening was given the second of the three promised concerts, and again were tbe boxes filled with beauty and fashion. Expectation, which was raised very high by the bills, was amply gratified. The evening was warm, but by throwing opeu the box doors, aud cutting large apertures in the partition that divides the front from the interior of the house, it rendered it quite tolerable : excepting however, to those who came with a predetermination to be boisterously dulighted, and to make their delight Vnown to others, by clapping, bawling, stamping, knocking, aud every other agreeable mode wliich tome folks take to express pleasure. Indeed, some gentle men, w hom we taw ii the pit, seemed to labor as hard as if tbey really xcorkrdfor money so that, on the whole, I doubt whether it could be called a cool house. We understand that the manager has been pre vailed upon to continue tha concerts two eveu - in; more. ' LULU, At Brockfield, (Mast ) Hon. Oliver Crosby, Senator in the Massarbusettt Legislature.
