Profligate Legislation. 1 have recently seen Senate Document No. 134 oi the last session of the Legislature, in relation to allowances to contractors since 1836, on the New York State Canals, and it appears to me to contain some startling facts ot the immense sums of money paid by the State to contractors, over and above the prices stipulated to be paid in their contracts ; and it may possibly lead to some of the reasons why there has been lor the last few years so formi dable a legislative lobby annually, so clamorous tor a slice at the public crib. The allowances to contractors over and above the contract prices, are stated in the afortsaid doc ument as follows : Awarded by Canal Board $4*2,0 .3 10 " by Canal Commissioners 166,291 00 " by Canal Board (or protective profit* on work not (lone 362,041 2J Total extra allowances $l,lt>? 394 Be Here we have the enormous sum ol one million one hundred and sixty-nine thousand three hun dred and ninety-fsur dollars and ninety-eight cents, given to four hundred and titty-seven contractors and their copartners, from the treasury ol this State by the ru?y virtue ot the Legislature, who have parsed laws to take this large sum from the tax payers, to partially satisfy these contractors ; a larger i-utn thun the cost ot the Oawego, Cayuga and Genesee, Chemung und Crooked Lake Canals; and about n? large an amount <xb liar been raised from the null tax in two years. The impropriety and injustice of some of these allowances may be seen by a reference to the amount ot the contracts, at their stipulated prices, and the very large per centage allowed on that amount; ana it is a re markable fact that the individuals who have re ceived the largest sums are those most conspicuous in the lobby for the last few sessions ; and indeed it appears, that several of these gentlemen have held seats in the Legislature, and have probably Given their assistance in the passage of some of these iniquiious laws. A tew ot the individuals are named below, and the amounts awarded to them and their associates, asexhibited in the afore said document.

Other StaiiM and individual companies are more I Carefuli and economical, and are not so lavish with I ilietr allowances It is snid that the State of Ohio I has never in a single instance paid more than the I stipulated prices to their contractors, although that I State has expended about #20,000,000 in internal I improvements, and in this State the old land marks I appear to have been entirely departed trom by the I Legislature; no contract, however strong or se I tVcimTa t?w.eyer ,irnP|''' ar^arH 'o afford any pro | j n l" ? -,/? ^ contract? f,*. ? | ifood contract, he pockets the profits, hut if ? h id I one, or if it caa be proved to be bad (and what I cannot be proved to be bad by the contractor?) the I State makesup the losses. A single case of the foregeing may be stated, and it is believed, may be a fair sample ol others I Andrew P. Tillman and Brown took a contract to I construct locks on the Cayuga and Seneca Canal I which were paid tor by the canal commissioners I at contract prices at #17,85350 in 1827, and subse I ^o allowances were made to them, one in I 1828, the other in 1831, amounting to #8,700 90 I and in 1841, ten years after the second allowance' I another law ww passed, under which the Cana] I Hoard made an additional award ot #10 23!) so I that the State pant these contractors #30,693 40 in stead of the #17,653 50 stipulated in the contract I or an increase ot over one hundred per cent. The* I cost of these woodlocks which have since been I twice rebuilt, was nearly the same as those ot cat I *toac masonry on the western' section of the Erie I canal in its original construction east of Rochester. I And the ca&e ot ]$ut?ll Ac Oo. for the very large sum I awarded to them for work not done on tke Lock I port locks, would seem to require some explana I tion. 7 he Board of Canal Commissioners in 183(5 | before the work was commenced, fixed the width I of the lock walls for the enlarged canal at seven I lest at the surface ot the water, but at Lockport the I outer walls nave been increased to ten feet,and the I csutre wall made thirty-two feet thick of solid ma I sonry, which unauthorized and unnecessary change I of plan will probably in part account for the large I sum allowed by the Canal Board; and another at I Durhamville, when Durham and Moore had a I lease of water trom the S:ate, to be resumed at I pleasure without compensation; this claim was I made to the Board ot Canal Commissioners, and I -ubsequently to the Canal Board, and they each I having full power confirmed by statute, decided I iliat there was no foundation for the claim against I the State. But since that time, the late Board of I Canal appraisers in their excessive liberality I awarded the claimants #20,000. Perhaps, however, all tha has been done should I be pussed over in silence, but this lobby vet retains I its organization, and it is understood will be again I put in operation at each ensuing session of the Le I iiiMature, and probably continue as long as snch I large sums are so easily obtained from the treasury I I am almost tempted to say something in relation I 10 this lobby tor the information of tax-payers?its I efficient chairman, its doily sessions, its large and | >vel| organized committee, fjr both branches of the Legislature to effect the passage of laws, and I its still more efficient committee as witnesses for I each case before the Canal Board, but i leave these I lactstorthe investigation of others.

It i* compoied ot decayed and decaying reg | ntahle matter, very rich, ami producing great fertility I wherever Mr. Ayre* baa applied it on hia farm The bet tors of ths pond i* a hard pan, covered with limestone pebbles ol vsriou* sixes It wa* in thi* black sarth that the skeleton) were found. So tsr, Mr. Ay res ha* discov ered Ave diitinot animal*; two of them which lay near the edge ol the pond, and which were, consequently par tially exposed to the sir at times, were very much decsy *?'; their skulls went to pieces upon coming to the atmos phere, as did some ol thn tusk*. One of these two, Judg ing froui th? grinders, which are quite pertect, as also a poiiion of one ol its tusks, must have b?en large and qaitelfull grown. The other was a very young one,a calf its tusks were just formed; they were not mors then six inches in length altogether, and did not project beyond the flesh mora than an inch Its K'nders are small and ahow it to tie quits yannjr ? s remaining three, who** *kulla and bones are very perfect -a* aaur.h *o aa if the animal* had died yesterdsy -were found more toward* the centre of the pond, and ire about half grown Thi* is conclusivaly proved. First from the sutares in the ilgl not l.eing yet closed but open, Secondly, from tnw fact that they are h11 lhr?e cutting their hinder teeth-and that the sucking tooth in the front i* much worn, loose, much smaller thsn the others, snd thst part of the roots of them have been ab ?orbed, and they are just dropping out. They are also all Mastodon* Thi* proved from the teeth ; the grindei* n all of them are composed of conical protaheranee* not flat and rigid like an elephant's.

The imperfection of our consular regulations la ao commonly known, and haa been eo often tho subject ot serious complaints on the part of ship ownere and bhip masters, and even on the part of high judicial authorities at bone, that it ia really surprising 'hat the matter haa always been treated with the utmost apathy by our government, and that Congress have not yot deemed it necessary to act upon u project for a now consular system, which, we understand, has now been before that body for a considerable time. It has often been said, and the principle is just, that we muat avoid, as much as possible, entan gling ourselves wuh the polities, and intrigues of foreign nations. Our l>uttin> bb with them, and theirs with us, is commerce, not politics. Under this point of view our government was probably induced to look upon our consuls as mere com mercial agents, who, not being considered as re gular government officers, and not being supported by salarieH from the public treasury, have only to rely upon the very moderate and uncertain fees of ineir office, or upon the resources of their mercan tile pursuits. Perhaps half a dozen of our consuls abroad make from $5000 to 915,000 a year out of their officea : perhaps twenty ol them make from *1000 to 82600 h year. But the greatest number of them (being 156 consuls in all) can scarcely pay the regular expenses of keeping an office and a clerk out of what they get from their consulship. Onr con suls are, for the greatest part, merchants, depend ing entirely upon the profits of their commercial business for their living, especially upon consign^ menta trem the United States; it is, therefore, af a primary importance to them to have tho good will ol the masters of vessels, that they may make a good teport of them to their ownera ; and to do all what they can to Btop by their official influence any competition of other houses dealiug in the same line of business. Thia operates in a direct way ngaiii6t the very object of the consular insti tution, which is to afford an indlscriminating pro tection to our ship masters and seamen, ana to promote the commercial interests of our country. It happens very often that the Government sends its circulars, asking from the consuls general or particular information of their respective consular districts How many of our consuls send accurate and exact reports to the consular bureaa at Wash ington 1 and how many do noi answer at all to tha appeals of the government 1 When a paper ia laid un the desk ot a consul, his first thought is how much he can make out of it. If the service is a gratuitous one, much zeal and activity cannot b? expected. Under these circumstances, it is not lo be won dered at the little diguity and respect with which the ofliceH of Amencan consuls are attended with, both on the part of shipmasters and of the local authorities of the country where they reside. There have been instances in which a manifest reluctance was shown by local authorities to re cogniu* in <>ut ..ntmit. thr lulvlieges, immunities, and exemptions, to which, by the important nature ot their duties, and by the law of nations, tbey ara entitled. The high importance of the consular office, and the weighty utility ot which they conld be to the government and to the country at large, are so generally acknowledged that any discussion on the subject becomes quite irrevalent. The celebrated diplomatist, Chateaubriand. says, in his work on the Congreas of Verona, vol. 2, page 297, the fol lowing prophetical words; "Le terns des Ambas Madeurs est paste, et celuo des consulate revenu." Impressed with this truth, the best organized gov ernments of Europe, like England, France, Aus tria and Spain, have given their consuls a semi dialomatic character and a respectable standing, allowing them sufficient salaries, besides the emo luments of their offices, through which their con uls can sustain the independence and respectability of their situation. In France a consular office leads often to the more important functions of di >nmatic missions, as it is naturally thought that he extensive nnd thorough knowledge of public af fairs, and the familiarity of foreign languages, ac juired in a consular career, are the most appropri- ' ite qualifications for a good diplomatist and nego tiator. It is to be observed, that not only do salary is al lowed by our government to our consuls, but that lieir legal perquisites and emoluments are tar be low thoee of all foreign consuls. Four dollars only .ire received by an American consul for the deposit <?1 the ship-papers tor each vessel entered at his consulate, it matters not (he description or the size ?f the vessel. Ky a wise law, intended to create some income to our consuls, and to control foreign rnportatioiis, it is required that all loreign invoices, 1 ven for free goods, should be accompanied with it certificate of the consul of the district where the ?htpmentis made, to be admitted und entered at our custom house offices. But the characteristic carelessness of the custom house officers has ren dered that law inefficient, as n great many invoices Hre admitted without the consular certificate. An American captain, before he vails in hia vessel, say tor instance, for a port in Portugal, must have all his papers duly legalized by the Portuguese agent, to whom he must fork out thirteen dollars, if he Roes to, his paperx will cost from twenty to thirty dollars. Bui a Portuguese, Brazilian, Bre men, or any other foreign vet^el, can freely be en tered at our custom house without having one sm g e line from our consuls. It is indeed to be la mented that matters of such importance have been overlooked so long a time by the Department of Stnte, to the great detriment of our shipping inter ests, and of our commercial relations with loreigu nations. It is to he hoped that ihe next Congress, tired, perhaps, of making bad laws in one session to be repealed on the following segaioD, and faiigued of their base and unworthy party intrigues, and fights, will ultimately come to the determination of doing som< thing also tor the real welfare of thejr countrymen, and lor a better representation of their interests abroad. We would like to see our Con suls taken trom among our best educated and re spectable citizens ; we would like lo see them suf ficiently provided as to keep up the respectability ol their stnnding, without beini; obliged to pursue a mercantile avocation: we would like to see them well instructed with the law of nations; witk the navigation and miuattme laws; with the com mercial regulations of loreign nations; and finally, with foreign lanp'ingea,oral least with the French ; and our country wuold certainly be highly bene fitted by this change in our Consular system.
