In the last p a il, Mr. Graham, one of the commis­ sioners, to.k no part, but dissented from the views of his colleagues in that regarA Almost all the other three parts are the joint work of the Commissioners, and the whole is a inonument of boldness of reform and industry in execution. As to the practical effect of this measure, it is impossible that opuuens should not widely differ ; but we beHeve that every day will unite the differences into one tone of general approval, this moment, the experii under the most unfavorable work being brought out piece-meal, and p u t into ope- in a system it is intended to supplant. Not whose fii zatioD of tk Up t only LS been tried 6 circumstances; the system it is intended to supplant have the prejadices of the judges, and the con- m of the practitioners been obstructions to its progress, but every thing which was unchang presenting continual points of coUision and ties to be harmonized. Net w ithstanding these embarrassments, the code, so far as it is now in use, has been continually gain­ ing upon the general favor, and, compared with the asked for it. . To laymen, the code must always be recommended by the simplicity, brevity and clearness of its pro­ ceedings, as contrasted with the technicalities of the former system, while the fact of having so large a portion of the law in a form accessible to any ordi­ nary intelligence, is calculated to elevate th e to the community generally, by giving to all the our courts, and interesting all in the administ of justice. T h a t defects will be discovered in the work is unavoidable, but time, and the eare of the Legislaturerwill cure them, and the day is not far off when we snail remember the sacred language with which the old forms were veiled with amusement, and their expensive length and artificial structure as most surprising barbarisms. The Commissioners have worked conamore, but their work has been vast, and the ability and perseverance with which it has been eieouled entitle them to, all praise, as workmen in the field..of progress, and public benefactors. T he N ew C ircular .—T he late circular of. Mr Meredith has produced g reat excitement, both in and out of the Custom House. The officers of the reve­ nue are g reatly disturbed at the prospect of a reduc­ tion of some twenty-six percent, or whi-'h is the same thing,—of amount, particularly as the I larter-day in this city, when bills are rendered from e shops, and rents have to be paid. Hut Che agitation among the clerks is nothing in comparison with th^t which has been produced in the mercantile community. In order to comply with the demands of t^e Secretary’s circular, the Collector has been compelled to place an additional number of bur- way of fees and persuade the Senate to reject them, i t body happens to bo of the party in administration. le Senate generally is th a t i t . is too easy in these matters, too remiss in pruning the di- plomatio appointments. A little lopping off oflhe dis­ eased and unsightly branches would he greatly for the health and symmetry of the whole. It is not safe nor politio, as It is not just, to reject a competent and trustworthy man because of the pre- • judices with which we may regard his poUtieal course; but nothing would he better received by the people, as nothing could be more fair in itself, or more a matter of duty to the eonntry, than to throw back the nomination of an incompetent or profligate man in the face of those who made it. In a case of that kind, there should be no deliberation or delay beyond .yvhat ia necessary to establish the want of propi lalifications in the indiridnal. The Senate has b s ight to trifle with the national character luhlio interests by assisting to send abroad, i of our republic, men whose behavior ort of discre ihlio interests representatives c may involve ns in any sort of discredit, or subjeot our oitizena to any prejndice in their affairs. , A few examples of rejection on snob grounds would have a moat wholesome effect upon any admiristra tion. It would teach i t that in making such appoint ments it must not forget the only reason for making them at all—the public service. Of the diplomatic appointments made for the last eight or nine years, about one in three deserved to be rejected, and Jiut for the presamod want of conrage and firmness in the Bonate, mahy of them would never have been laid be­ fore it by the.Executive. It is paying a bad compliment to the Senate, we know, te say that we cannot expect them to do their duly In rejecting a diplomatfo fi«mmatioD, ud I ojs a majority happens to be hostile to tho adminustration who makes it, bat hostile to tho admini I sneh is the truth, and it is IS to speak it. Even with an unfriendly nom-uations of this kind are confirmed wit garJ to the qualifications of the individual presented. W hen Mr Tyler, at the close of his administration, a m na’.od Major ijolk as our Charge to Naples, a country with which we had at that lime a ooinmereial treaty to make, the Senate, al­ though a majority was hostile to the administra- t OQ, gave its sanction to the appointment. This represeatative of our country, entirely iguoraat of our ojmmercial relations—ignorant of the very terms of commerce, and of almost every thing else which a ^ in hia situation would be required to know, with its which unfitted him for a post of that naturrf^ went to Naples, and a commercial treaty was nego­ tiated with his signature. T h e jr Consul, Mr. Hammet, well ects, and with the idc the businesg for him, while he was occu- if the capital, and an inef--. oonduele and with the language of the country. pied with the ditsipations of feclual attem p t to learn french tain in foreign countries, ministalrs of what is called l IS been more than once discussed in this — Theemocratic:o d party, p relieved from the bias of any Immediate interest in the question, have an opportunity to examine it impartially. If we have any national interests that cannot, in ordinary times, as properly be superintended by intelligent consuls, as by ambassadors plenipotentiary, the advocates of the present system will certainly be able to point them out; Tho relations of the different nations of the world with each other, are growing more purely commercial every day with the rapid increase of the facilities of communication. We W.TB somewhat surprised to see the other day, in Mr. Clay's Speech on the question of discontinuing the mi.ssiou to A u stria, a general allusion to the com­ mercial and individual interests which would be prejudiced by Such a step. If the proposal had been to withdraw our consuls and commercial tber o'ljectioD. For the protection of our cornmeroialin- terests, however, it is not necessary that we should keep a dangler a t the A u strian, court, to give diplo matic dinners, appear in state processions, a n d intio d .106 American travellers, eager, as most of them are, to make their bow at the soirees of a monarch. T he G obk or C ivil f pousdubb of the S tate or N ew Y okr , reported comfletb . bt the C ommi * sio.NERs OF P ractice and P leadi . ngs ,—T his is a handsomely printed volume of 791 pages, embracing in 1.983 seotions the completed code, with tjie notes of the Commissioners, and an indax of 96 pa^es. As il contains what is proposed to be enacted a j the wholf law of judicial remedies in civil oases, we have de-- voted t* its examination some care, and propose to brief an analysis of it as is consistent with The Code ia divided into four parts; the first re­ lating to Cmiife of J ustice, and the funotions and duties of judie|«cl and ministerial officers : the second , 6 o Civil Actions ; the third to Special Proceedings; and the fourth to Evidence. T h e first and second parts were reported last win­ ter, and form what is now known as the amended Code of 1S19. The Commissioners have proposed some changes in that code, and have, completed the outline they there gave of thoir plan. In the first part, they now propose, in detail, the organization of the- Court for the T rial of Impeachments, of the Sjr- rogates' Courts, Courts of Sessions, Police Courts, and some changes in that o f the Court of Appeals ; a«d have deSued the jurisdiction o f the Supreme Court, Court of Oyer and Terminer, Superior Court, and Court of Common Pleas, more exactly than has been done before. General provisions re s, their tnoidental powers end inged, wi ir, and, c I,, thehe preiresent lition to it a year ago t p state of tole- n ia as rapid a progress as its friends could have ■etention of that ir with the ordinary of t^ e Secretary’s circular, ipelled to place an additiona dens upon the importers, oharges. The expenses of weighing, guagii Buring, carting, storage, Ac., which have heretofore been borne by the government, are now laid wners or consignees of imported goods, y no means trifling, and togethe je3uJv/*ll the amount paid in the form of dutie.-i pro- ,igbTa=ly ; yet the merchant has no alternative but 0 pay it, or lose the receipt of his goods. If the' efficient and stringent measures adopted by Mr. Maxwell axe pursued in other ports, we should think that the government expenses would be rapidly reduced within the limits fixed by the last Congress. Besides the changes made in the Custom House, we understand that tho vessels employed in what is called thelRevenue cnlter service, will be immediate­ ly laid up and their crows discharged. Thcee vessels have been as much employed in relieving disabled and wrecked merchantmen, as in- the proteoHon of the revenue, so that the present season of the year, when ships approaching the landijare so liable to oasualues fiom cold and storms, isinot the best for withdrawing the cutters from their usual cruites tho coast. enough, pi any Other place >’C its age i is X deficiency of one impoirtant le letter says: “ This is the only thing I can see, (sotting aside whiskey selling) to retard tho prosperity of this land uf promise.

The Read River and cranberry trade affords not a little profit, which with the fur trade makes tho amount of money in circulation in the territory not a little. But now this must nearly all be sent ‘ below’ to supply the in­ habitants with the necessaries of life.” The letter speaks in high terms of the fertility of e soil, and says of tho climate: it was as lovely as September.

D omsstiu F aqan . s .—The report of Mr. Matsell, as to the number of childr en in our city who are to­ tally without instruction, socia!, ],olitical or religious, is attracting great and deserved interest. A boy- who has no teach leg at home, and who is left utterly uninsiructed by tho state, as to his duties, is, it ap pretty certain to grow up either a brute or a lan, probably some thing of both—while the girl in the same category is inevitably destined to be a pros­ titute, and the mother of ruffians and prostitutes : Mr. Matsell says ide to the constantly increasing numbers ol , idle and vicious children of both sexes, who cloam bers are almost incredible, and to those whose busi­ ness and habits do not permit them a searching scru­ tiny, tho degrading and disgusting practices of these almost Infants in the school of vice, prostitution and rowdyism, would certainly bo beyond, belief. Tbe offspring of always careless, generally intemperate, and oltentimes immoral and dishonest parents, they never see the inside of a school-room, and so far as stone of our free iostitutions,) it is to them an entire nullity.

In tho socond part, relating to civil actions, no im­ portant changes of tho amended code c f 1849 are pro- pee?d, but some additions are recommended, which we think highly desirable. Among others, it is pro­ posed to give a woman a right of action for her own' seduction, and to dispense with proof oflossof aer. vice in actions by a parent or guardian for the same wrong. Under the head of'set off, it is proposed in' admit many cress demands which are now excluded, and especially to open the door to those hitherto con­ sidered as exclusively cogniiablo in equity.

For aught that is known, such explanation may bo perfootly true, and it is very questionable whether there is any good ground for doubting its accuracy.
