The defendant pleaded non est factum- On the trial below, the plaintiff tl ottered evidence of a subscription of the city of Bridgeport p to the amount of $IOO,iM>? in the year 1836, and another of 9&9 <M)0 in the year 1837. These subscriptions were on w condition that the road should terminate within the limits 1< of the city. Agent* were appointed to negotiate for and ci procure the funds necessary to pay the subscriptions by o a loan or loais at an interest not exceeding 0 per cunt per 01 annum, and to pledge the credit ot the city therefore by it issuing certificates tar the samv.by promissory notes or by C securities in any othur term, payable in not less than ten C nor more than twenty years. la 18J8. on tha application of the city, the General As. oi sembly of Connecticut, in a resolution specifying all tha h acts of the city, enacted. That all the proceedings of the w city, Sic., should be " ratified, confirmed, established, and b made obligatory on said city of Bridgeport and the citizens 9 thereof, in tha samw manner and to tha same extent aa if w all tha powars necessary to give full form and validity to o the said proceedings of said city had been expressly and w specifically conferred upon said city by thair charter." 1< It was further resolved," That fall power and authority ? Sic., ba granted at any legal meeting, See., to adopt such t< ther measures as in tha opinion of said meeting shall be ii naoeasary and proper to carry into effect, Sic., the proceed, ai ings heretofore had, Sic., and to provide for the payment it ot said subscriptions and the issuing and negotiation of b of said loans, notes, certificates, scrip or other securities d as said city shall at such meeting authorize, order, or di- ir rect to seoure the objects contemplated by said subscriptions; and said city shall bn held liable and bound to pay b< such instalments fs shall from time to time be assessed si acoor.ling to the charter of said company; and thu notes, c certifica'es scrip, and other securities, which have been, v or may ho issued as aforesaid, shall be obligatory on said b city to all intents and purposes, and may be enforced and li colluded in the same manner and to the same extent that p debts lawfully contracted by towns in this State are en- o forced under theexisting laws of this State. it It was then provided that the act should not be obliga. p J ?|'|<>vT<fu U/ luo r i cnuru ui iub tliy UI B< Bridgeport, at a corporate meeting legally wameil for ii that purpose, and the evidence of their assent te the same, o transmitted to the Secretary of the State, to be by him recorded. ti Evidence was then offered of a vete of the city, appro v- d ing ot the act, and a certificate of the Secretary of the tl State, that the vote was recorded in hisoitice.

C talments should become due; also votes of the city ap. t pointing agents from year to year to vote on the stock.? I To all this evidence the defendants objected,on the ground 11 that the city had no authority to pans the votes, and that e the act of the General Assembly was a violation of com- 1 mon right, unconstitutional, and void. I The Court below received the evidence, ^and the case ? was now brought up on a writ o( error founded on a bill t (exceptions. i Hon- Mt. Hcktirston, of the United States Senate, opened the argument in behalf ol the city. He contended i that the importance of the case could not be overrated, c If the legislative will of the State, combined with the will of a oorporation, possessed the power claimed in thiscase, i no man was safe ia the enjoyment of his property. The t hard earnings of a life of industry and toil may be wreated t from the owner by the will of a majority oi a town, or j even of a school district. The Legislature could, if this s doctrine is correct, authorize any petty corporation to s create a lien on every man's property who happened to t belong to it. The community could net exist under such t a state of things. It would become necessary to pass a ( bankrupt law for honest men whose property had thus f been taken awav. He said he meant to treat th? mihiert \ with boldness, though with all due respect to the bodies o who had done the acts in question. This Court had al. o ways taken a lirm stand against legislative usurpation- c He said he ought in justice to his clients to say that they t] were honorable men, and had no sympathy with repudi- 1 ation. The minority ot the city of Bridgeport denied their b liability to pay the bond in question, us they had never b given any authority to issue it. w He said belore he proceeded to the main question, he C. wished to answer one objection which ho understood was fi made in the Court below. It was claimed that the de- tl lendants were estopped by their votes, issuiog and ap- '1 proving of tko bonds. To this he replied, it 1.

To these admonition! wc caa nly answer, that if the exeroise of that jurisdiction 'hioh haa b?en imposed upon us by the constitution and iws of the United States, shall bring on those dangers rhich have been indicated, or if it shall he indispensable > the preservation of the Union, and consequently of the idependenoe and liberty of these States?these are conderations which address themselves to those departtents, which ,nay with perfect propriety be influenced y them- This department can listen only to the man<t?s of law, and can tread only in the p?th "which is larked out by duty. Mr. Duttoh, of Bridgeport, followed in support ofthe and. He said he concurred fully with the learned coun'I who hud preceded him, as to the importance ofthe deision whiuh whs to bemndo in the esse. It not only inolves liabilities to the amount of about 200,000 dollars, ut if the gentleman is right, it reaches principles which e at the very foundation of our institutions. A great art ofthe gentleman's argument goes to show the danger fbeing governed by a majority. It ho is right then there i no safety in our form of government. The ultimate ower of determining the propriety ol laws must reside omewhere. He thought it would be as safely trusted 1 the Legislature as in the judiciary. If either are corrupt r incompetent, the rights of the people are in jeopardy. It presented rather a singular case, in ? court of jusice, for the same corporation to pass an act, and then eny the act which they had passed. The minority of lie city do not appear here and delend, but the city itself, le should not, however, rest the case on any such tech* lical ground. In order to understand the obligation of the defendants, t was necessary to understand the situation of the city vhen the subscription wos made?the charter of the Rail toad Company had been granted with liberty to run a rack to Bridgeport, or to connect with the Fairfield lounty Railroad, at Danbury, or with a railroad Irom larlem, at the State line, or to build en all of these routes, t was a work of common interest to the whole of Fairield county. If the othsr routes hod been adopted, to the xclusiou of Bridgeport, it would have ruined the place, rhi re was an evil therefore to be avoided, as well as a >rnbable benefit to be secured. The object of the subcription is therefore apparent. It was not to become a i ubscriber to a railroad, but to protect and promote the nterests of the citizens. With this important fact in view he would briefly exanine into the liabilities of the city to pay the bonds. He lontended? 1. '1 hat the city had power by its charter, to ssue the bonds. Ho said he was not disposed to question he numerous authorities which the learned gentleman iad read. He claimed that the city had the powur, in >erfect consistency with those authorities. The charter, ec. 6, gives tke city unlimited power " to levy taxes, for uch purposes as said city shall think proper. It is said his does not give power to contract. But for what are axes laid, except to discharge liabilities on contracts? Jould the city raise moneyfor nothing ?lt is said no express ower;s given by the charter,except for certain purposes. Ve answer?The corporation is made a city. It has, f course all that is implied in that term. The necessity f its being incorporat d usually arises from its commerial and manufacturing interests- The corporation must lerefore have the right of protecting those interest*.? 'his power does not depend on the corporate property, ut on the interests of the citizens. Suppose there should eu bar across the Connecticut River below Hartfoid, i !ould not that city remove it 1 This power Is not conned within the limits ol tho city?New York has brought lie Croton water Irom a distanced more than lerty miles, 'his was not absolutely necessary, for the city had exited and flourished a long time without it. It is admitted that a city could drain a pestilential marsh without its limits. If this subscription was neoessary 0 protect the commercial interests ol Bridgeport,it comes 1 ithin the same principle. The subscription was om the xpress condition that the road could terminate within he limits of the city. 2. The act of 1938 rendered the bonds valid. If the Ct confirms a void act, it is not of course void. The Legislature may confirm a void act, if that is their interest. Vilkinson vs. Leland, 2 Peters, 617. The Legislature ere must have intended this, or they could have intend d nothing. 'J'ho act was not void, by being re ospective. Such act* were not, of course, void. -Wilkinson vs. Leland, 2 Peter's, 6i7. The Legislature ought it reasonable and just that the city should be ound. The circumstances ol the city justify this condition But the act wns not retrospective but prospective? was to have no i ll'ect unless approved by the city. If pprovod, It would be equivalent to new subscription. It has been contended that the act of 1834 gave the gents no power to issue such bonds to the Railroad Co. lut it made the subscription obligatory en the city, 'he city, then, without any express piwer, would have he same rights as any other debtor. Could not thecororation give a note for an admitted debt as well as any ody else 7 It has been contended, that the agents light r>ti?u money on the bonds, but could not pais liem to the Railroad Company, especially in advance.? At* 11 rloim <><1 ftVtn aivonta VioJ tKn nAtt'iir tn roian tho t loney from the Railroad Company, to pay the company, I a well as to dispose of them elsewhere. The city would e ex(>osed to no greater liability, and there would be a aving of expense. But the statute of 1M8 expressly ives new powers, and all the art* of the agent* were in trict conformity with the subsequent votes of the city, rhere was no objection on the trial on the ground that ny meeting was not legally warned?there was, in fact, warning. 3. The net waa not contrary to the constitution ef this Itate orthnt of the United States. It haa been generally inderatood that Legislatures have such power?many of he cities ot the United States have done the aame as Iridgeport; Legislatures have conferred special powers. Objections have frequently been raised on the ground of xpedieney, hut not of unconstitutionality. Courts will lot declare an act unconstitutional unless it is a clear a*e of usurpation. Judge Iredell, 3 Dull. 309, says?"As tie authority to declare it (a statute) void, is of an awlul nd delicate nature, the court will never resort to that nthority but in a clear and urgent ease. If the Legislaare of the Union, or the Legislature of any member of he Union, ahall pass a law, within the general scope of heir constitutional powers, the court cannot pronounce ? t to be void, merely because it is in their judgment, con- fl rary to the principles of natural justice The ideas of ? latural justice Are regulated hy no fixed standard." LegiKlaturrs may at any time ruin the people by inrolving the country in uiijuat and ruinous wars. The (roatt'it part of the debt of Kogland wa? incurred in this *av. There it always a minority opposed to them. But sthe remedy repudiation? The construction of ways, including railronda, is a water peculiarly within the jurisdiction of the Legislature. I htt Appian, and other way a of ancient Rome, the road :ut hy Napoleon across the Himplon, and the magniBcent ailreads of the preaent day, equally attest the fostering :are of gavernment. If Congress can build the Cumberland road with the noney ol the people, a fortiori, the Legislature of Conlecticut can authorise the city of Bridgeport, to aid in the ronstruction ofa road, terminating within its liaaits ? Certain individuals hound themselves to pay about f 40,100 to have the Chenango canal terminate in Utica. The .egialature of New York discharged them, and assessed he amonnt on Utica without their assent, and the act was leld valid?24. Wend. 85.

The general rulea regarding corporations, laid down by the opening counsel are not disputed. But :ho city did not subscribe for the benefit of the stock, but Cor accomplishing a great public object.

The LegiHluturo of Connecticut have olten conferred powers 011 to win to be exercised without their limits. East Haven was formally authorized to build u bridge, ono hHlf of which was in New Haven, and take toll. Fairfield and NorwRlk had a similar grant. The Legislature of New York authorized Albany to loan about hall a million to the Western Railroad, lying wholly without the limits of thecity.

This does uot apply to taking liv tax But if it does, here Is a two-fold compensation?by public benefit and by holding stock. 2. Out if the charter does not give power, the act of 193? does. That law was not void, if merely confirming and retrospective. II so, all the acts confirming mar. riagej, titles, &c. are void. If the city had uo power by its charter, yet it the Legislature could originally have granted the power, it could confirm it. If the city had, without authority, contracted a debt in draining a raari-h, :he Legislature could confirm it. But the act was not retrospective only, hint only sanction* d the acts dona, Jut gave validity to any other acts of the city tending to :ariy those acts into effect.

The " New York City Guard" arrived here safe and sound last evening, per steamboat American Eagle, and proceeded immediately to the spot selected Tor their encampment, about three quarters of a mile Irom the landing. They have christened the camp "Camp Putnam," in honor of the old hero of Stonington, who had command of a portion of the American forces near this place during the Revolution. The Guard are in fine spirits, and anticipate a great deal of enjoyment during their short stay, which they will more than realize ; for they are among a warm-hearted people, who have re. ceiveo tliemwiih open arms. Invitations Irom the surrounding gentry have already been extended to them in the handsomest manner for entertainments of every description, and on Friday evening they intend reciprocating the compliments by a IihII in camp, which will doubt less be a magnificent affair. Send along your beautiful girls from ihe citv in platoons and companies, for this is to be a gala week at(?|en Cove, and they cannot fail to enjoy themselves. Governor Houck and many other distinguished characters are expected here in a day or two; and it you are fond of excitement, I would advise you by all means to pack up and make tracks for Camp Putnam. Yours, truly, A. F. Anticipatrd Trouble on the Western Border. ?We anticipate some trouble on our Western borders, from the outcasts that seek there i field for the perpetration of their villanies. There is no lack of materul among the whites to constitute a formirlul.U ka.wl ,.l ...kl.o-o ,...,1 .I, manifested by Warfield, shows that thin purpose is already in agitation, if not formed. The subject is an important one, inasmuch as our traders, border settlers, Ate-, may be broken un, without a pessibility of arresting the outcasts, who may rob, or kill them They may easily escape, beyond our jurisdiction, as both Mexico and Texas will afford to them, under the circumstances, a safe hidiug place. But the most serious cause of apprehension arises from the Indians They have been cruelly wronged by the whites; they know it, and fe?l it; and it would be easy enough, now that their strength ia concentrated, and their revengeful feelings strong, to engage them in u sort of border warfare which would bring distress nod desolation all along our frontiers The temporary success of the lawless whites, who live among them would be enough, in itself, to engage them in a bloody and murderous onslaught. It is important that a stop should be pgt at once to this robber spirit which is becoming so rife beyond the civilized borders of the West. If not done, we feel certain that worse scenes ihan occurred in Florida will happen in the far West. We trust the government will look into this subject, and do promptly whatever the occasion may require.?Cin. Qazette. General Sessions. Before Reaorder Tallmsilge uu<l Aldermen Brady and *Rawson. Jimci R. Wmitino, Esq., District Attorney. July I? ?Grand Larctny.?John Tompkins was placed on lui trial for stealing frsm William Keplbeck, No 100 Canal street, at various limes, several dozen pair ot ladies' boots, shoes, buskins, kc , amounting to overoue hundred dollar*. Several pairs were found at the stores where the prisoner had told them. He hud been employed by the complainant as a journeyman shoemaker, aid during his visits with his work he managed to contrive the larceny charged agninst him. The sales by Tompkins, and the lubseqnont finding anil identifying of the boot* by Mr. Krplbeck, were E roved by the parties who purchased them from Tompina, Mr. Keplbeck recognizing the property by the make and manner of work. The defence offered several witnesses to (how that the prisoner had purchased leather, and hail employed workmen to m<ikn up work similar to the goods claimed by Mr. Keplbeck. Verdict " Not guilty." Sltaling a Treasury Note.?Margaret Watson, a woman of very respectable appearance, was placed at the bar charged with having, in the month of April last, stolen from her employer Aaron Adolphus, of No. 331 William street, pawnbroker, a Treasury note of the amount of WOO, which he had purchased in January previous, and others ot the same vslue, and placed in his escritoire in a closet, to which the prisoner had access. On discovering the loss, suspicionnell on Mrs. Watson, as she had paid bark about the time two dollars, with a ten dollar bill on the Exchange Hunk, which she had borrowed some time previously from the clerk, John N. De Costa. A plan was accordingly laid between Mr. Adolphus and the clerk to borrow $3t) from her, which the clerk did, and she promised him the amount required, providrd he would return it punctually on a certain named day. This nibble so pleaded the clerk,that he, upon consulting with his master, resolved to increase the bait, and ask for $i0, which, after some short delay, she granted and gave him $40 in ten dollar bills on the Exchange Bank. This caused, her arrest by olfi'i r MoOrath, who searched her trunk, and found in it *870 of the same kind of money. It also appeared that when she was being locked up in the cell, she made a half confession of her huving found a Treasury note on the doer while sweeping it outonamor. ning. On this testimony the prosecution rested. For the defence, several of the friends of the prisoner (who cemes from the county of Fermanagh, Ireland,) were examined, and all admitted the high opinion entertained t>y them lor her; also, that at times they had entrusted to her charge and keeping various sums of money, Tn? jury. after a few minutps' deliberation, returned m verdict of guilty, recammending tke prisoner to the mercy ef the Couit. She wat remanded lor sentence. The petit jury were then discharged for the term, with the thanks of the Court. To day will be devoted to sentencing the prisoners foni d guilty at this and the last term of this Court.
