We have before us a copy of the " Constitution and Rules and Regulation.-* of the Hoard of Pilot Commissioners ot the port of New York," of which a brief review is offered to the public, but particu larly addressed to the citizens of the State of New York, and the Congress of tne United States. From the title of the pa|>er under consideration, it might reasonably be supjiosed, that this " Constitu tion," (tec , emanated from some " lawfully consti tuted, superior source nay from its imposing und comprehensive style, that the system was adopted '? by authority," either of the State Legislature, or that of CongreBS Yet, it is but the illegitimate off spring of the "Chamber of Commerce and the Hoard of Underwriter*," who, "deeming it im| or tant to the interests of humanity and commerce, in order to prevent improper |ieri-on? ironi acting as pi lots. have adopted the regulations on the subject Though it might not be quite decorous to impute arrogance to these distinguished bod let, especially when professing to be moved t>y " humanity," they benevolently exclude their fcllotr-ciuaeML (if the hard-handed sailor can thus be recognized,) trotn acting as pilot.-', and us* im?* .1 < en-<>r.?li-;> over tli.it l>ortion of the community who are m the enjoyment of a franchise, by the legislature ot the State made common to all who may think proper to ?-*?-rcise it. Still, when we examine the p irttnlaod defective sys tem, for which the " co-oiieration of the mercantile community's solicited,"we cannot fail to enquire by what authority they venture to control or interfere with the pursuits of those who are strangers to their rea|)ective corporations. It might disturb the complacency of the distin guished individuals who compose these valuable as sociations (valuable so long as they discharge their functicns within their appropriate spheres, but dan gerous when they transcend tllem,) that in contem plation of law and the genius of our institutions, the pilots ot New York have equal authority to adopt "constitutions, and rules and regulations" lor the government of the Chamber of Commerce and Board of Underwriters, as these ini|>osiiig bodies have to warrant their present proceedings. The Board of Underwriters, with the same propriety, may undertake to regulate the lawyer, and the b iker the butcher, as th? selt-constituted " Board of Commissioners of Pilots" now presume to regu late pilots, or any other class of men. It is a dange rous and unprecedented pretension, pregnant with mischief, girdling and sapping our liberties, when exerted by wealth, intelligence, and power, against the humble and defenceless. Is such authority de rived from the charters that gave them corporate ex istence, or are they transcending the powers with which they are invested by the State! Have the members of those associations already forgotten the pernicious effects of trades union, or are they pre pared, in their own example, to foster combinations For public interference and aggression! Mechanics and laborers strike for an advance of wages; by this constitution, corporate bodies com bine for proscription, and alike offend, at least, in morals.

Murder Will Otrr?That "truth is stranger than fiction" has been often paid, and the circum stance! we are nbout to relate, do not at all lesion the tiuth of the quotation. Last week we noticed that a special tenn of the Circuit Court was in session for the trial of John C. Loafer, charged with the murder of King H.Scott. Scott was a young man who nut brought up iu this county, wild and reckless in his habits, and care leu about the good opinion of the society in which he lived. His mother possessed consiberable property, and Scott and Letter, who hud married Scott's sister, were her only heirs. Mrs. Scott was, one morning after a corn shucking at the house of Lester, found in hur own house dead. When discovered, she was lying in toe fire-jiluce, nearly half consumed, as though she had fallen in the fire accidentally, and thus died. Suspicions were ^routed at the time, that there had been foul play, and (hat old Mrs. Scott had been murdered: however,jjs there was such an appearance of accident, no clue could than bo had to the murderers, if she was murdered. In the month of Oct., 1943, Scott, then about 16 years old, was apprehended on a charge of larceny, on the informa , tion of Lester, his brother-in-law. Ho managed to make ! Ms escape from custody and d eappeared. His sudden I disappearance was ftcely commented upon by the | reignhoihood, and there were those who did not hesitate to say he had been murdered. Subsequently, ! Lester was indicted for having forged some instrument I o! writing, and a man named John Horton was indicted for perjury, having, as a subscribing witness, sworn to tho genuineness of the instrument. By the delays and uncertainties of the luw, Horton was first tried lor the ciirue'with which he was charged, Lester so managing the matter as to put oft his trial until the late of Horton was determined; and at 'lie March term, Irt-U, of the Lafajetto Circuit Court, Horton whs found guilty of per jury and sentenced to the penitentiary tor two years.? L ster was subsequently tried for the forgery and acquit - tid. Piof.ei representations" having been maie to Governor Kd wards, hu pardoned Hoi ton in April last. Upon the retnrn ol Horton to this county, immdediotely ,liter he received his pardon, he declared that King B. Scott hail been murdered, and made oath before Judge It viand, that Lester was his murderer. A warrant was immediately issued for Lester's arrest, and he was appre hended at his farm on the next day. On bringing the ' prisoner to town he attempted to escape, but was 'nadly wounded and recaptured ny the guard. The examination of Lester took place before Judge Ityland the next day, and Horton swore positively that he saw Lester murder Scott. As well as we recolloct, Horton'* narratire of the horrid affair was about as follows : He said he had been to a neighbor's, and was returning home in the evening, when he saw some deet in the prairii-, which he followed?getting uear a small thicket or grove in the prairie. He saw Lester and Scott coming down the prairie. He determined to secrete himself in the bu*ho* to iet them pass, but instead of passing him, they turned down a hollow in the prairie near him, and he determin en to watch them to see what they were about. It by this time wis growing dark, and the two commenced mukin* a fire. A Iter'hey had lighted a fire, a bottle wits produced, Irom which they drank alternately, and w en Scott turned to set the bottle dewn, Lester struck him on his head with a club, and continued to inflict blows upon him until ha waa dead?he then buried him in a sort of gulley, an I covered him with dirt and loose stones. A day or two after, Horton said he had been hunting ducks, and on hi* return home, he saw some turkeys, which he followed to the hills?he came sud denly on the top of a ateep hill, and in the hollow be saw Lester digging a hole?he crept softly away, and on returning by the spot where Scott had been buried, he law thit hogs had "partly rooted him from his grave, and i had eaten u part of the body?he then supposed that I Lester's object in digging the hole, was to make a more I secure grave for bit victim; he accordingly watched Lester'* movements that evening, and saw him remove Scett and re-bury him " A party was sent to the place where Horton *aid Scott was buried, accompanied by IL, to show tha spot, and the body was taken up and re cognized to be the body of Scott, from the clothing. He was buried in a place that no htimnn being would ever suppoa< to be selected as a grave, and even those who were tent to search lor this evidence, to corroborate Horton'ttestimony, believed the story to be a fiction until the body was found It was in a ravine, where a constant stream of water was flowing over the grate ? Upon this testimony, Leiter was committ-d tor trial Letter applied for a change of venue, and his trial was removed to Jackton county The whole of the week be fore last, and part of the latt, were devoted to the trial Circumstances elicited testimony other than that of the evidence of Horton. which convinced the minds of the . jury, and after a short absence, they returned with a verdict of guilty The Judge, upon pronouncing the awful sentence ol the law, asked the pi isoner il he had , an) thing to say why sentence of death should not be , pronounced against hint. Letter arose, and for an hour ^ addraaaad the court, alleging his innocence, and explain ing away the circumstances which seemed most dark againat him, in a manner, which we are told, brought | tear* freely to the eyes of that large audience which j had aaaembled to hear hit aw ul doom. The sentence of tho law was then pronounced, which we are told was moat solemn and impressive. We laid other testimony had been elicited besidet that of Horton, and this testi- , mony tending so strongly to criminate Horton, he hat been arretted, charged with being an accomplice. His examination commenced yesterday.
