Yours, Jkc., A Stkaxokr. We hear of too many vueh swindling opsra ti. ns as that noticed above, and (for tha bene fit of the community, and also ot drivers who do not practice these imposition;) hope that in future the guilty parties may be hauled up before tbe neareet magistrate and mad* to suffer the full penalties of the law. We append the sections of the Corporation laws bearing upon the subject: " Sec 12 That from and after the passage of this act, tbe following rates of fare or charges for the conveyance cf persons frcm ona place to another in tha city of Washing* t.;n. ia hackney carriages, cabs, or other v< kieles carrying passengers for pay or hire, between day break and eight o'clock, p. m , shall not be exceeded, that is to say : for each and every passenger, for any distxsce not over one and a half mile, twenty <*ve cents; for for any di-tance over one and a half mile, and rot exceeding three miles, fif y cents: Provi d <i In case arjt hxekney carriage, cab, or otner vehicle shall be detained for a longer period than five minutes, the driver thereof ah*11 be allowed for the whole back, cab, tr other vehicle, tbe sum cf twelve and a half cents for every fifteen minutes so detained; and for all conveyances or other detentions, later than eight o'clock, p. m , tbe owner er driver of hackney carriages, cabs, or other ve hicles. may daiaand and receive at the rate of fify per centum on the foregoing charges, in addition thereto ?'
