THE NEW Y OR K HERALD. Vol. X., No. MOS?Whola No. 3M?. PrlM Two Coot*. UieKt and Interacting Trial, before Justice KlrtUnd. (jn?> of the most carious aa.l interesting caaea was tried on Thursday, beloie Justice Rutland, of the Fulton street Ward Court, and a Jury of six persona, which was accompanied by Borne ol the fuiiaiest aud most amusing specimens of legal tact, argument and eloquence, that were ever heard in u court of justice. The suit was a prose cution by the Corporation Attorney, in the name of the Mayor, against a cartman, known as f-rtmurl W. Smith, of King street, for a violation crt oi)> of the city ordinances, for driving a cart without a licence, under the following section: :> 8. No ner.on thall drive any cart, slid, truck, dray, trucn, or ether carriage, lor the transportstiou of any goods, ware*, merchandise, fl'ewoM, or other thing whatsoever, within the citv of New York, for hire or *?? ges without being licensed as a cartmau by the Mayor of the said city, under a pcualty often dollar* for every such olf nco. Tu<* Corporation was represented by Nicholas, Esq., and Mr. Smith appeared as liis o?*n counsel. Several witnesses were called, uli.> proved that Smith had admitted that he drove two e-iria without a license, and that he had ap plied |.?r ? license aMhe Mayor's office lor two carte, which being refused under the ordinance, he assetied that he would not take ?ut license unless he could have ihem both. Tuis closed the testi mony l?r the prosecution. Mr. Smith then opened his case to the jury as follows Oknti.kmkn or this Juar Improper government is tha "rigin of domestic difficulties, and the impolicy of counting foreigners as politicians, :o enable the w-ak minded and ignorant to obtain power, is all wrong. Mas 01 Varian ?* influence with the Irish, to get ottice, is an evidence of this, and its effects, in oausing a rebellion, whan the military were called out t-> quail them, are well known. This Mayer cries down with the Irish,which has tho * ff-ct of disgracing them as a nation, and wrong fully influencing the citizens against them, and has camud a change in politics, bringing the whigs into power, which is a mem trick to change power into a different name, by incensing the citizens against ignorant and innocent foreigners, and to keep the City government in-the haud* oi baie Aspiring men. Tho effect bus been to set l it classes of citizens again?t foreigners, (particu larly Irish Catholics,) and fiorn this city the riots in a i.oighhoring city may bi traced. They have caused a complete revolution iu politics, which lias resulted in tha flection of a Mayor and Coalmen Council, in name and principles, according to pretensions, ditt'. ient from any previous Common Council ever before elected, and know n to be at warfare with foreigners, whom the Con sticutlnu binds us to protect. The j eopl- have called for a change, and they have got i\ It is a change from one political now er to an amalgamation ol both, ia su h a manner us is spoken of by God or Samuel .n the Bible. When the peoplea>k*d for another king, he promised the a tyrant if they changtdj one that would literally grind them to Me dust. Such is the politcal character of our present city government, as you will see from the history of facts, which onr public ofticers will swear to in this Court. The previous ones, for some years past, having disgraced their offices by continually Jarring. q>i?i rolling and fighting in public places, that no respec table mm of talent and energy would accept the nomina tion of Mayoi j and the rff-ci has been to bring about ex actly the tyrannical lorm of government before allude* to: ami, at this moment, a villain, in fact and law, 11 rightly known, is holding oue ol the mest respectable and responsible offices in the gilt of this present Common Council. This, ft I am permitted. I oan prove circum stantially, if not lawlnlly. It has been the artifice of both political i) irties in putting such persons in office, so as to narrass thn people by their tyrannical asts, and throw Hit1 power back into one-r the other of the old parties, an I as ninny ol the present Common Council were whigs, some who uttered the most bitter and inveterate Jenunci aliens against the locofocos, now turn from the whig ranks, rnd s?v they will vote the locotoca ticket. All thii if tlie?ff.'Ctef putting in men not morally bad, but too credulous to guard the citizens in their rights, and leave th -in .1 prey, comparatively speaking, to vultures like theCorporation Attorney and hi* assistants They sir.) herebef ue you to expose their folly, and I hope it will 1. -v tiie ? ft' ct to check their |K>litical oareer, that the per son's of our citizens with their families and friends, on * th'* Sabbath,which the Mayor pretends so much to respect. Bui, O -mlemen ol the Jury, all the preceding evilsmight l?e ameliorated if our city had a proper head which con troll'*.! hia subordinates aa a father governs his family? B M he does n-it. I regret the necessity of compelling him t > c x*>o*e his weukm-s*. Kor the resp? ctsbili'y ol the ci'y I wenld gladly have omitted nuh| mnaing him ; but public, ?rood and public safety require a change, and this ?ct nf public exposure ol his act* may bethe means of p'.aciiix one t f the l>e?t of men, the President of the Boird. in his Chair. The ridiculous farce and improper exposures of his mental abilities, shows that he ,is a mere cypher in hi< office, aud that neither the persons or nroccrty of citizens can be protected. He hart better be reut on a cirauit to talk the old women into obo die nee to their duty, as he was doing to some ignoble i<nome, a* Pope terms them that sit in the Mayor a chair Ve?, gentlemen, I hazard t> e penalty of f 10 to show up the Corporation Attorney and hi* minions, and tinles* the labor i > g m-n are protected in their business bow in the name of God and mercy, are they to live?

Why, I thought yonr young as ancia'e, who commenced the cause, would try it. If the M >yor ran't protect himself, he oint fit to be Muyor? that's all. M1To"i Well, Mr. Smith, ask me another question.

I hare got some questions here to put to thu Maj or betides Junos?Yon must not put any that are not relevant to the case, as the witness need not answer. Smith?Well, I'll have my rights Here they are, all ready Do you take the Bible for -your,guide ? As you are ? man acquainted with letters, words, lio , it it my wish tor you to give me the origin ol the word sin. if you please? Do you believe the Bible a Holy Book? Is it not to be found in the history of the Patriarch and his daughter-in-law Tamar ? Did not the Patriarch own he bad more sinned than she ? Which was the worst in your opinion, the Isaac, or Matthias, the prophet, who was imprisoned in Westches'er county ? Do you think such couduct its that of Isaac moral ? Why then take the Bible for your guide ? Why did you refute to argue the case in your office? Do vou believe Ood said to the Israelites, " go, and I will prepare the wav for j oti 7" How wns that way prepared?

Do you believe in grinding the poor so u to com pel them to be thankful and pray over a meal of cold po tatoes? h* you told a ruitmen you would do at night if yuu could not get any belter t Do you not think such ill' treatment towards t our subjects will soon caute a rebel' linn if not abated?

I am no lawyer. Smith.?Yes, but was it not the duty of the Corporation Attorney to bring the suit to flue me $24 under this aec tion, and not for $10, under the other-as this covert my case, as my license was revoked by Mayor Varian. Jud<;*.? The witness need not answer that question. Call your next, Mr Smith. Smiih.?Mr. Quackenboss will be sworn. Q? re you asMitant Corporation Attorney?

A?1 presume that all Corporation ordinances are passed in accordance with the constitution. Smith.?That's ali 1 want of you if I cant get other answers. The testimony was doted here, and Mr. Smith pro ceeded to sum up as follows:? GkitlemkK or thk Juar?Were I to explain the cor Koration ordinanct s in their ridiculous light, every mem er of this Court, to a man, would cry me down as had as Blshrp Hughes does Bennett ol the Herald. Even my friend SchitfTWin. the President of the Board of Alder men, whom I respect, and he knows it as much as any other man, would he down upon -< e the worst kind, and 1 was astonished at the expressions of ex-Mayor Morris on this very subject. I regret to say though (he ex Mayor is an attorney by profession and prsctice. One-half of the corporation suits, which are malicious and emharrascin* to the laborious and industiious clars of citizens, would not he sale in his hands. The poor class, who have sup ported him in office, must have suffered much fium the protection he was capallr of rendering them from his ex planation of the corporation ordinances to me this morn ing. These suits are continually brought against persons who are striving to get a living by their industry. Their money ought to t.e refunded to them again. The rich are seldom or never brought up on any complaint, unless they are extremely mean. This question is elicited from seeing their tyranny to a cartman the other day?when they could not convict him on the original ground, which was the same as they stood on againat me, they declared on another ordinance, which will be contemptible for any Jutytv convict* person ;and nojurymenoi spirit ought not t<|be compelled to do the dAy' work of mean office-holder* whose acts are a continual warfare against the rights of man. The evils of letting such a government continue, is better described in the daily journals from facts that occur, than can be desorihed by me or any tongue, because tkey shew the inward disposition of man, for which things may be foretold lor many years. Facts, upon which all the predictions of the BihUrare founded?lacts, 11 looked upon with impartiality will teach (this jury, that nothing but a righteoua administration of juttice can make any people happy; for " happiness it our being's end and aim " For illustiationsof a tyrannical government,look at Kngland, and tee the devastation of property irom the hand* of the oppressed?houses, barns, and even stark* of corn bnrned to seek revrnge?and how oit doe* the property of the in nocent share the fate of the guilty ? Look at France, and see that cause wkich placed Bonaparte on the th'One? it was ftyrariny?so badly were they op pressed by had government?that the women joined in the hue and cry in the destruction ef many innocent persons and property. Look at the in cendiary disposition of Canada. Consider the de struction of property by Bill Johnson and his gang to be revenged for the cruelties inflicted on him by the Cana dian government. Can any people be safe either in pet son or property, however innocent, under a tyrannical government? I say no?the history of nation* prove it? the acs of private individuals ahow it, and words of the clergy countenance these outbreak* as the effusions ol nature, for Nature's Ood Is true I regret to state to this jury that for the tviannical acts of this city Corpora tion, an Attorney has been consulted as to the propriety of taking revenge for their tyranny, by catching the offi cers in another State Why should officer* inflict pun ishment on others for what they prac ice themselves? The parson who has threatened the Cart Inspector,says ha ownstwo cart*, which are daily employed. Mutt I be punished lor ono chance to get a living when be ha* three- Mu*t he be employed to inform of what doe* not concern the Corporation- and then set its blood hound vp >n the cartmen to tear them in two ? Such animoti'y against them would compel every cartman to leave the city-for were the Corporation ordinances put in foroe according to the letter of the law, and their general con construction, the weekly earnings of all the cartmen in the city would be inadequate to pay the fines. Without labor how are the rich to develope their store* for man to enjoy? They cannot, and the Almighty has so formed man as to make labor a blessing?the wealthy employ me and n-iy me, by which I am enabled to provide as good food for my telf at he enjoys,and where is the difference in pointof real happiness? There is none if each hsve a right directed mind;the one is mutually'dependent on the other. The ordinance* ^against the cartmen|of this ci y as ex plained in our courts, take from the cartman both time and money; and in one Instance in this court to my knowledge a cartman was robbed out of a bill of about twenty dollars, which included work in the dead of the night?money for labor and storsge-not became there wet not law enough in the statute* of the State to protect him, but because the corporatian ordinance* took tno pre Terence. And what ha* been the consequence!? I krow that tame cartman to be an boueit and industrious mar, and I think I have beard he has bren obllgi d to receive charity from this corporation. The ordinance* against the cartman as Immorally explained in this city have even bronght a priest to hear against me, and has been th? cause of his threatening even the dumb animal that draws my cart, and I have come very near looa ng a horse bj this rime scriptural nuisance. Ought not such priest craft ond corporation ordinancta lie done away with f As far the Mayor, you have seen that it took thre? law yer* to protoct him here, with thi* ordinance; and if th Corporation Attorney had dono his duty, ho w uld have laid Ms d clntatfon on the f?th aection and mado me r>a* instead of $10. Gentlemen- un fiaodom'a broad baais lakar shall rtao, hut how aan it rlae oader suok reatrto* tion?. In the country a m-iu can own and drive as many teams as he phases ; but hers you ran drive but one. Thia ia but a mock trial The Judge ha* been made subservient to the caprice of the Corpora ion Attorney, and he turua round and aaya I ought to be in the mad bouse. But it will ?ver bo ao when we truat to the le .rned devices ot political rogues, who iteal away our rights. (Laughter ) My carta are mriig carta, and there's no law against tin m They are my private ca riagm, and no onlinance .an control t tin. I leave this ciue with )ou, gentlemen, ti uaiing Uiat you will protect the righia o( labor and give me a verdict ol acquittal. Corporation Attorney Simmon* closed the case, by merely alluding to the positivenesg of the teatiinonv aguinst the defendant, andt te clearness of the ordinance, and ita propriety in every well regulated city Thecal w >a thin aubmitte ' by the Judge, and after an absence ol about hall an hour, the jury returned a veidict againat Smith, impoaing a fine ef $l? and co<ta. lie haa mice paid the coats and fjea, amounting to * IB, and talceii out a license fur one cait, and one ol hia work men for another.

This waa a curioua action, involving a question ol law in rotation to slavery. It waa brought by the plaintiff to re cover a sum of $700 for the services ol a slave It appeai ? ed that in Julv, Iw33, the plaintiff hired out the slave, named "Jacob," to delendant in the Slate of Alahamn, the ala?re remaining in the service until 1841. In 1843 the slave was manumitted. The parties being now in New York, theoaie wai brought up, and the ilave law of Ala bama was pleaded to sustain the suit. A nonsuit was moved on the ground that plaintiff could not recover on such a contract in a free 8tate, such as New York, for slave services The Coubt overruled the objection The laws of New York not recognizing slavery, an Im portant principle of law ia involved. , Mr. Oellinukb was produced and testified to the fact of the agreement and hiring, through his agency. The defence put in was that the slave was "quick-tem pered and Atilkv," and also that a portion of time during the servitude the itave was incapable ol performing his duiies, and, therefore, that the defendant was not liable. The yonng man, Jacob, wa* produced and hi* testimony waa objected toon the ground ol his having been a slave at the date 61 the contract, upen which he wa* about to give testimony. TheCouar overruled the objection. He appeared to b? a active, healthy young man of color. , It appeared in evidence that he got sick from the effect* of a *evere dogging, called(in the South "iiaddliog,"whlch operation upei formed by stripping the siavt beating him on the naked back with aflat board,in which are piercod a number ol holes. In romeqoence of thii punishment, it wai alleged that the ilive wai incapable of pei forming ?ervicei, and the alleged incapabilityto pet form duty wa* put in, on the part of the defendant- aa well aa the at eg?d quick temper of the slave; claiming, alio an allowance lor boarding and clothing. A written contract, duly exe cuted, ligned and leiled by the partlei, waa put in aud ad mitted. The Court charged the caie wis one of assumpsit, and aiimple business transaction not involving the question of slavery at all ; and the only qileition wai.what were ?be services worth ? The decision upon the point be. longed exclusively to the Jury. Iu relation (to the pun ishment and com-quent sickness, if the Jury were of opinion that the cessation from business was caused by the punishment, the plaintiff was entitled to recover The question of interest claimed alao by the plaintiff, wai one which they should dispose of.
