LOCAL IMTELLIWENCt. Con* MitTiia ii Timpik&nck Hall ?Pur mint to <t rail published in the daily papers, h?*ded " Mechanics, Workingmen snd others, att??fioe,?> a meeting wm held at Temperance H?? 11 Inst ai^ht. tb* object of which ?a< the dls. ? of the new Cod" of Law* The meetleii wa> called to order by Mr. James W Dunawm who nominated N'ich Callau, Esq , a? chairman carried; and Mr. Lewia Newton wan chosen sec retary On motion of Mr. Dunawln. person* objecting to the new Code were Invited to state their ob jections, for refutation The meeting wa? addressed, on the part of the objectors, first, by Mr Wood, who s'ated that at a late meeting of therltlieii. at this pi are h- bed npnii. d biiri?e!f iu fovor of tin* proposed Code and his determination to vote for ft - but tbaP since tbatmiieeting he h-td examined, and come almost to the conclusion that he would go against It. He object* d to the large amount of fees given to the marshal of the District. He also wanted tbe l^rvy Cou't to lie elr-cit-d l>v the people One of tbe codlfie's had stated that ?be new law In relation to eipiil*ion from the schools had special reference to the county outside the city. If It related to any one school, It was wrong In every sen-e of tbe word He objected to the superln tendent of asylum being appointed for a life term He thonvbt that the said functionary should be appointed for a term of years 11 relation to the Sunday-amusement provision the speaker had not been satisfied at tbe former meeting with the explanation of tbe codifiers; he d.d not liel.eve in punishing tbe boy who weut tUbinu on Sunday, with a line, and letting the servant or footman of the rich church-goer clean bis horses, drive bis master to church and wait cutside for him, go scot free He believed them w?? more attained bv good works than by prayer. He believed tbe Sundiy law. as proposed iu tbe new Code, was an arrangement to suit the rich and not the poor man Tne speaker remembered a scene w hich transpired st one of our city hotels one Sunday, whe e a pirty of persons were in tbe bar drinking gin slings, or some other kiud of Mings, wbrn the diiuks had been swallowed, one of tbe party Ihiew down a piece of money for Eayment; whereat the bttkeeper gave bl?n a nowirig wink, and a gentleman present, a hl"h city functionary, responded by saying, V\ ellTlf I am in ?be way of a business tiansaction, I'll r tear nut Thus this official winked at a trans action which was against Hie law He was opposed also to the law in relation to marriage, and stated a set les of objections in this connection, whii h were more mirth-provoking thau a.gnmenrative The law. he *aid. ouoht to have been so plain that common men eoul3 un de stand it, without three or four coditiers to explain it. Mr W reviewed the law In relation to me chanic*, and urKed that there was uot a clause in tbe new Cod.- for tueir protection in any way or form The law in relation to bawdy bouses, he thought, was ridiculous; why did not the cod illera provide a place or refuge for tbe unpro tected victim of man's villany* Tbey could form societies to send missionaries to eoovert mullet headed Africans who hid not three Ideas aliove a inonkev ; but no civilised l hrtstian law makers had thought of the wa'it* of tbelr fellow white creatures at home, who bad no place of refuge whereon to lay their heads k relation to tbe provision made for con victs discharged from the penitentiary by padon of the Executive, he thought It was the very worst In the whole Code He thought an ac ? ount should be kept with each prisoner during confinement in the |>eiiih ntiary and that when discharged be should be paid the full amount of his earuiugs, and come forth as a man aud not as a beggar-a ripe subject for the renewed commis sion of crime. .Mr. Wood concluded his somewhat lengthy retnaik*, and Mr. Jos 11 Bradlev, senior, was called to tbe stand at Mr. Wor da request, to ex plain the proposed law in relation to riots. Mr B slated the object for which the citizens were called together on this occasion He held that the safety of this country rested on the !>a<is of tbe Christian religion?be did uot speak ot sects or creeds, but that L'reat Christian principle which wa? the true foundation of a government Tbev bad met to deliberate upon that wbich wa.? the foundation of our every inteest. He knew no party or sect, when they were meeting to gether as brothers to provide for the government of all. The ?oeaker had written that law in re lation to riots himself, and was proud to have written It. There was no law which belon<'ed to this District providing for the calling out"" of the military; It was time there was. There was no law providing for the reading of the riot act: It was high time lh*re was. The provision of tbe new Code in relation to riots must be taken as t whole, aud not picked to pieces, in order to a proper understanding of it. Mr B went >n to read the section from the new Code in this relation, after which be com meuted upou It at length, asking if tbe proposed law was not a wholesome one, aud one calculated to restrain the ruthless passions of bad aud un scrupulous public officers. In reply to a question propounded by Dr. Clayton. Mr B went on to state that In ra?es of Insurrection the President of tbe United S ates was compelled to call out tbe military Tbe proposed law the Mayor to exhaust all other authority before call ing for tbe regular military In cases of riot* First every effort must be made by the Mayor, the Mar shal. the Magistrates and Coustablesto quell the tlot; that proving in< fflaiious, then tbe District militia must tie < ailed upon, and then tbey must not fire upon the niob without lull aud sufficient notice to disperse When the srmiuty tjritltJ for the military to be called upon, the speaker would stand by'tbe ?tutboiities to the very List. As the rio law now exist*, Iheie is no exigency shoit of an in?uir ?? tiou, giving power to call out the military The proposed C.sle subjects the President to Im peachment should he dare to order out tbe mili tary without the clearest proof of the civil au thority Uriui' first eibausud, he must have clear proof ?\o law is worth a?traw unless we have judges and jurors to enforce it. The execution of tbe law Is ..ften oppre-sive Tue speaker did uot wish to be consider* d as reflecti 114 upon any in dividual, but as speaking In view of a great principle Now one man selects the jurors for the courts In high party times, a man clothed with the power to souuiioo Juiies will, without being conscious of It, summon those belonglug to bi? political party If theie weie nothing else in the rode to recommend if, the chapter iu re lation to the luiitmonin^ of juries was a chapter which was founded on the l>e*i principles of ltis t.<e it was not that one inau was dress*<1 in broad* lotb a- d another In homespun, that Wr were to find fault with this Code; we must com promise foi the best public good We must not expect to have laws to suit every one's mind in every respect, but those which will effect the greatest public good Mr B.adlev spoke at considerable length ou the subject of tbe provisiou in relation to slaves aud free negroes lu relation to juiies, the pro posed hw piovobd for the selection of one hun dred aud fttty elttaens and householders out of all the citizens of ihe District,and they take turu so as not to have the sjiue Juiy for two siM'cessiVr terms ; no jury to serve after once serving, uutil the wboie shail be exhausted. Mr. U. entreated tne people to consider well upun the subject under discussion, and to read aud understand for themselves Tbev could Vote foi It with th. lr objections attached to their votes, aud then when those objections liecatne known, let them go liefore Congress and have p-oper re vising of tbe ohjectiouable parts bv Coiigiess. Mr H concluded, and Mr James Wise mount ed tbe si a ud and stabd sevoal objections to tbe Code. lie regarded tbe adoption thereof or Its reje.110 1 as milter tuvolviug so much interest to tbe ct'iiens that he moved a committee of live gentlemen oe appointed from this meeting to Visit the P.e?lde.tf ai.d ask him to extena the time for voting on the Code to sixty days. i'he motlou being secouded. tbe question was put, and tbe motion carried unanimously Tne meeting w as then addiessed by Capt J P. l.evy, who piocted> d to state a long series of ob jections to lue Code; but the audience, apparently satisfied by the motion of Mr. Wise for a cum MuHee to petition tbe President to extend the time on its adoptiou to sixty days, rapidly thinned out, aud In a tew minutes the Hall was pretty Weil cleared The t 'halr appointed ou the committee to wait ou the President, Messrs Samuel Chilton, Fsq , i) .

Ctrtsptndtnct of tkt Star. SiouiTowr. Feb 9,1958 The meeting at For rent Hall, lint night, held for the purpose of considering the new Cod**, wa? attended by an immense concourse of pei tons. On motion of Mr Edes, Dr 0 afton Tyler was called to the Chair, and Mr. J. L KidweU was appointed Secretary. On takiog 'he Chair, Dr. T. remarked that, doubtless, all present knew tne objects of the meeting as well as himself; it Lad been railed for the purpose of inviting a full and free discus sion of the new code of law?? birb had been repared for the District, afid which would 1* prepar laki b* aid before the people In a f?sw days for their ap proval. Mr Ould being called for, took the stand, and said that if there wis any gentleman present op posed to the Code he would be thankful to hi in if he would come forwarxl and make hi* objec tion* known. To such an one be would cheer fidly yield the floor and take bis chances at a re ply The opponents of the Code had been solic ited and challenged to com i forward and discuss it fairly; all be asked for it was a fair discus sion. Mr. O remarded that the Code had been prepared under peculiar circumstances. No law ever prepared for the government of the people had been subjected to so many and such rigorous tests, and then to a vote of the people />rr cajiiia before going into operation. He th.-n informed the audience of the persons by whom the Code bad l??*ii prepared. They were all citizens of the District, men who ex pected tj live and die under them, and their cbildieu's child-en also After its preparation it had been submitted to the criticism of both the C^sent able Attorney General and hispredecessor, th of whom had heartily approved all its pio visions The Code was not his production. It was the result of enlightened iea<on and legisla tion for tbe last twenty years, both at home and abroad It was not the I3*v of the c-'ditiers; It wa, the work of wiser heads G?d forb'd that he, as one of the ci?diders. should set himself up as a Lycaruii* to make laws for this people. I hold in my hand (said Mr. O ) the whole ot tbe laws which have t?een providt d foi the future of the District If you should ask me for the laws by which we are now governed, ] must tell you a-? l did the people of Washington, I should have to bring >011 two cart loads of ln>oks and a wheelbarrow Icud of duM, and when i had brought them.lt (the law) would lie haul to find, and atter found, 11 ke Chat ley Jones * horse, wood for nothing. The opposition to the new Cede consisted of several classes of persons. Each of these he should mention; una in doing so be should speak plainly. In the tii*f place, all the gamblers were opposed to it; second, all the lottery ticket venders; thlid, all the keejiers of houses of Ill fame and their pimps, fourth, all the grog sell ers, with a few bonoraliie exceptions; and tlflb and last, though not least, the chief of a groat buzzard roost in Washington and his iiiyimi d.?n*; and his opposition grew out of tbe fact that he now held some four lucrative otfl.e*. which the Code proposed to distribute aiming as many individual*. And, as be held in bis hand a copy of the Intelligencer which contained a rehash of all the prlnci|tal objections of these parties, over the rignature of \V. H. VV., he would take them up in order and discuss them fairly He did not know what W. H. W. stood for. unless it was what heavy whappers, as he had no hesitation In saying that his statements were false. These objections, be said, started out with the charge tha? the new Code was designed to re-agi tate the slavery question. This was false. No change in the law whatever had been made. Tbe odiflers determine d from the be^innino to ?make no change, and left it just as they found it. They also chained a revival of the old militia law This was also untrue So far from it, it prohibited the old malitia muster, and simplv imposed a trifling tax of lifty cents u|K>n each white male citizen over eighteen years of age for the purpose of creating a fund for the sup{>ort of volunteer companies. The old militia muster law had never been repealed ; it bad only grown into disuse. The opponent* of the Cede were clamorous al>ont the proposed repeal of the usury law. It was at best an antiquated concern, dating back before the days of the Revolution, and he regardi d it as a stupid law. Money was a com modity which men had as much right to trattir in a* they had in flour oi wheat. The usury law, he believed, was the very thing that had butli up enterprise at the North to the Injury of the South. The South had held to the stupid cou < *i n, while the North was more liberal, and thus Southern capitalists had been compelled 10 in vest their money in the North, where it yielded them a ??ettei- late of interest. These objectors were also very loud in their complaints about the revival of tbe law of attach ment as proposed bv the Code The whole law proceeds on principle, if that priuctple Is wrong the law is wrong, and that was that dishonest creditors should not have the power to tie up their property iu such a manner as to d? fraud their honest creditors. If any honest man object ed, nay more, if there was any dishonest man present let him rise and give his objections If the dishonest creditor thought proper to shut himself up to evade tbe htw, he went for smok ing hi in out. Ttis was wh.it he u..d been trying to do with the opposeis of the Code S.j fai from the proposed law Wing an oppressive one, he rega.di d it more Lu urine than the one now in force, for while under the old It had been deci dcil that an individual could lie held to bail by his creditoi making oath that he believed that he intended to fraudul-nti) dispose of his p.operty. in no ease, under the Ciale, not even of Faudi could a Ci?ditor be held to bail before a judg merit was obtaimd against him. The chaptir on evidence, he sa.d, ha.l b'Cn made a gicat ou.> bear This he r<-gaid?dtbe gieat caiainal fea" ture of the Code?as altogether right and just in priuciple It did not, as bad been as*ert? d, put the iutldel on an equal footing with tb?- chibtian but it put him on an equal footing with the no torious liar. It done notbing more It was also objected that it places unnecessary restrictions upon religious and cbai itable insti tutions. This objection Mr Ould argued at some length, and completely, iu our judgment, annihilated ail such objections. Another objec tion, he said, was that it interrupted the rela tions existing between landlord and tenant In this respect he acknowledged the law dlflr-retl somewhat fiiiiii the old It, however, only gives to the laudout a more speedv method of re possessing his propeity iu ? a-e of dishonest ten ants. and upon the other hand exempted the tenant from being required iu many instances to pay claims he never owed The homestead law was also discussed In a manner by Mr O which elicited considerable applause. Others, be said, weie clamorous agaiust the proposed law of div?Kce This Wis no new law. hvery !*?ate In tbe I'mon, except Sjiith Caioln.a, had a similar law, a-rd in this State he believed theycariied their rousei vatisin so far that nothing but the sod could separate man and wife He gave all the grounds which would justify an application for a divorce Surely, said the speaker, uo honorable man conld object to a divoice for either of these ofl'.-nces Tbe Code did not giant the divorce, but simply the power to apply for it. In conclusion Mr. O said lie h:.d aii!>wer?d all the objections, and would lie glad if time would permit, to give some of the lienettts which Would result from its adoption. In the flint place, the law was reduo d to a small compass; under its fuovinions every man could tihd out what the aw was?he would not be compelled to fe>e a lawyer to tell him what it was, to be defeated by it afterwards. All he had to do was to tliul out for himself what it was, and then only pay bis counsel to enforce it for him. Mr. O spoke n'M-ut two horns, and simply to say that bis speech v? as an ableexposition of the Code, would not be to do it ju-tice. It was a masterly defence of it In all it* parts We learii that Mr. Shoemaker, the flour In spector, has appointed Mr. Daniel McCan as bis deputy SrecTATom. LOST AID FOUKD.
