Tho condition of eocicly is continually iiiuugiiir ; mm, which mny do expcnicnt nnd for the best good of community ot this lime, may reasoning! from the post in a course of years require alteration to nnopi it io too wants nnd wishes of our posterity. And in my view, nothing but me most nusolute necessity will warrant legUlalion o( this character : it ought never to be resorted to, except when tho objects in view.aro of such inairnilude and difficulty of attainment. as to afford no oth er probablo means of accomplishment. I om the moro readily brought lo this con clusion by the entire confidence I feel i lie intelligence and liberality ofthoso who mov succeeo us, By leaving nets of incorporation open io imuro legislation, i cannot lor a moment permit mvseif to believe that the rights or property of individuals or community will be endangered by iho imno sition of unnecessary or unreasonable re strictions or alterations, or that future leg islators will not understand and fully an urcciato tho wantsand wishes of suciety as it may ncrcaitor exist.

Adj. THE OPIUM TRADE. Until recently, the trade ut China has been carried on by means of opium. This drug was ptirchasod in Turkey and India by British merchants and others, carried to Cuntoii.and the resold in exchange for tens, silks, and other product of tho Celestial Empire, instead of paying the precious meiols. This Undo had always been con traband, Tlio Clnncso Government, per ceiving tho evils in their community by thu use of opium, prohibited its importation; but the subordinate funclionorics connived nt tiro trade, being corrupted by the money of tho merchants, and I ho opium was smuggled in, in updo ol the efforts of tho government to prevent it. At length, tho evil becoming io great and tho contempt Jol tho laws of tho heavenly empire so noto. I ,i,... ,. t.. .1 ' He commissioned n chief officer with nlcn ii.nio, uiu iiuiiui!ui luuu ticcipive measures. ary authority, nnd with pay bo large ns to raiso him nbovo corruption, and ordered him to stop tho traffic at nil hazards This ho accomplished, confiscating at one time twenty thousand chests, "on this passivo victim a grave consultation was held ns to its doom. Some counselled to burn it, but nt length it was determined to send it to Pekin, first lo bo concocto into a liquid and llicn carried to tho sen. and in ono great flood, poured in. The British merchants nnd all other barbarians are ordered to leave tho country, for that the Emperor docs not need tho trade, the service, nor Iho soctolv ofthe barbnrinns and that they hnvo formerly been permitted lo touch the consecrated shores onlv through sufferance and compassion. Con sequcnily the foreigners havo gone, nnd mado Macao their rciidczous ,- and now tea cannot bo purchased except with dol lars. This drain of spocio reacts on Eug land and Enropo with such a shock ai almost io brcau tho Bank of England. An immenso pressure is felt in thu universal money market, so that even the merchant in iioston must pay four and five per cent per month for tonus nil in consequence of uiu nou oi uuina s august umpcror. Per haps a better illustration cannot be found than is here seen, ofthe mutual dependauce oi me (iinerent members of tho civilized world corporate upon each other, and the increasing union winch is forming a soci ciy mo It cs progrcs in the world. Just ns in tho members of the human body, a shock in ono is felt throughout the wlmlo. so ns the bonds of society between nations grow moro compacted, their interests ure more involved, and thojnrrings which occur are more Keenly tell. This increasing mutual dependence cannot but augment tho mo lives to peace, and we look forward lo the timo when considerations like these, that is to say, tho great worldly iiitcrerests of mankind, will greatly diminish the wars nnd lightings which in nil ages havo deso latcd the earth.
