TO OUR PATRONS. MARKET AND MARINE REPORTS. in corma'Tenoe ot the recent sudden rise in the foreign grmn and cotton markets, it will be of the greatest importance to the mercantile community to receive early anil authentic accounts j of tho markets in this city, and in the south and west. In order to altoid this information, we have, within a few days, made arrangements on a comprehensive rcale, which will enable us to present to our readers every morning a full and complete j report of the state of the markets, the amount of sales <.f flour, l r.tin, provisions, &c , in this city and elsewhere These arrangements uxiend to , f und include tho whole south and west, and will place the Ntw York lLruld in this, as it is in all other respects, unapproachable by any other , journal in the accuracy and authenticity of its i statements. The ship news department of this journal has always been conducted in a manner most satisfactory to the community, und its accuracy and fullness has, on many occasions, elicited encomiums from the press and from merchants. Encouraged by our success, we have determined to make this feature of our paper more interesting than ever,by giving Ircquant accounts of all vessels loading for the old world, in all the sea ports in the country. Tiiis will be of great moment to our merchants and shippers, who have now entered on a career of unexampled prosperity, and f?r whose interest our exertions in this matter are especially designed. AfT.lia In tvusiilrigtoil. The movements in the capitol have assumed a piquancy, a point, a phasis, that will hereafter astonish even those now engaged in them. R story ( will blush to have them chronicled in her pages. We recommend the public to read and ponder over the debate in the House of Representatives ; in Washington, on Saturday ; and, indeed, also over that in the Senate. All those having the weal , of this great country at heart, will smile and shed a tear over the soenes enacted in Washington on that day. Folly reigned supreme for twenty-lour hours ; we ho, e that common sense will rule today. Our reporters have sent us full and life-like reports of the debutes, which we give in another oo'umn. They will attract universal attention. Thk New York Pilots.?By privato advices from Washington, we learn that it is the intention ol Mr. Dix to call up, either to-day or to-morrow, the bill to repeal the act of Congress of March 2, 1837, concerning pilots. Mr. Dix, through courtesy to some of the opponents of the bill in the Senate, has suffered it to lie over for a time, in order to give all an opportunity of examining its merits, so that there may be no cavilling hereafter, should tin- act of March, 18*17 be repealed, as it no doubt wdl he. It is now beyond all question that there is a de* termination on the part of a portion of the merchants und underwriters, to crush those honest, hard-working men. No case has ever come before a tribunal in this country, whether judicial or legislative, in which capital is so strongly "brought into antagonism witli labor. The very profession of the. a pilots?in its pursuit gallantly facing death in one of its mojt terrific shapes? out on the wide ocean, not unfrequently two hundred miles from land?amid the icy blasts of winder, and under the scorching rays of the dog-?tar?braving alike December snows and equinoctial gales?their life u continual grapple with death?this profession, from its very nature imparts to their character a simple honesty, and ingii nejs of purpose, forcibly contrasting with the sp'rit evinced by the very unhandsome and unprincipled elforts of their enemies, to deprive them of the fruits of their honest toil. The enemies of the pilots have even proceeded to the length of making, through one of their ad' ocate< tn Congress, absolute misstatements to the Committee on Commerce?misstatements calculated to operate most injuriously to the pilots. A cause that requires the aid of falsehood, must be radically bad. The enemies of the pilots, apprehensive of the ucce?? ,f the effort at present being mode to repeal the unjust law of 1817, hare tried every liCan.- to defeat this effort. The Committee on Commerce in the House of Representatives has been dosed with wholesale misrepresentation; and Mr. Dix, the chairman of the Committee ol Commerce m the Senate, who is zealously laboring lor the repeal of the law of 1837, has been assailed with abusive and threatening letters. We trust that these foul attempts to pollute the legislation ot the country at its source, and this most iniquitous and outrageous effort to shake thr fidelity ol a Senator ol the United States by men' ace nd scurrility, will receive such a rebuke by ?n ovorwliclming vote of both houses of Congresi tor the n pea of the law of 1837, as will prove r - rlutury warning, that neither wealth, nor power nor alone, nor menace, has power iigainst thr limine** arid purity of the Congress of the Unitcr States.

The fact that they wem representatives ol the United Uiates.would naturally place them iu ihe greatest respect with the government ol Paraguay, and hi* circumstance alone seem* to account lor even the courtesy with which they were received ; but their previous int mate relations with General Horns, made them appear rather as his interested agents, than as disinterestedly desirous ol settling d faculties In this light they were looked upon by the general government ol Paraguay; and the newspapers belore us speak of them as very honestly disposed, but in >st decidedly prejudiced in favor ol the views ol Kosas This appears singular. The Comfrcio of the 2d:li, in introducing the correspondence, says:? " We reiunie, li.>nontly an I accurately, the principal feature! of the political ao<l crafty acta **** on the part of Rosas. an.I finally the inuorouee, we ran iim no other expression. with which Mr Brent allowed himtall to lia le t and uted l>y the wilaa of thu iini.lioiii Dictator, who abused the faith of the Auieiiran niiuiiter. and the he nevolence of hia Government, having compromised him andplaot bitn against the plamp iteutiariea of F.tigijnl an I Krnnco, iu ipiritiona concerning which ha bad tie official right to interfere; nud converting him into an in strumont of his amhitiun in ilia affairs ot Paraguay.

After a long interval, and after the *c?no? at Buenos Ayrea bad been forgotten, tbeie g"titlem?u errire at Pilar, Bending bofoieh.ind a aimple declaration, dated the 4th of August, statiug that ' they ? era hearciB ot important corn iu it ni cations relative to the offer of the mediation of tho United States, to iettle the difticultiea bafweeu the raruguuvan and Argentine government! ; and asking permission to enter the capital.' These a ere very gtuvn circumstances to be considered; and the rutnon tha> h id been circulated iu roa|>ect to tho conduct of Mr. Brent were well worthy of serious attention, and It was currently rei-orted that his offer to he presented, would be accompanied with the celebrated conditions mentioned iu the benevolent und frotemal vote of the Uiclu or himself, wiitten on the Ihh of .Match, directed to ,Minister Uuido, and rivaled te Mr, brunt Thus the negotiation was to be nothing more than u repetition of most egregious insults to the laws, and that in the very face Of the Republic, and in tho vary centre ot its teiutories. " In accordance with such considerations, tho Supreme Government, through its Secretary of Foreign Relations, demanded from the American casta ' tno QQMMSBtoHoS of the otllaial chacharacter they bring tho credential! authorizing them te act. the (rank exposition of their object and end to be at tallied, and finally the delivery of their despatches, which domauds complied with, it was eu-y for the Societal y te nee if Morer*. llreui k Graham really intended to ro otfer the iritating proposals of the U 111 March,and iu that case ' to oppose, as far as was decorous, aueneigctic and peremptory protest and repulse.'" The agents replied in n communication, the important parts of which wo translate, at the same time sending their credentials:? " Vili k Dm. I'm.**, 10 August, 1840. I " To D.

In reieronce to the remarkable reserve that hia excellency has discovered in our letter to ; him, wo can only say that it was written in haste, on bourd of the vessel, n short time previous to our arrival at the Ouardia, from whence it was sent, explaining briefly the ol-jsct of our coming, and hoping to lacilitato our entry to the capital, where we might more freely enter iuto explanations. The credentials sent, will show that we are simply the hearers of official despatches from our government, and were appointed by the Charge d'Atfairs of the United States, to place in the hands of either the President, or the Secretary of the Supreme Government, the otfer of mediation between Paraguay and Buenos Ayres. This mediation has been conducted with no other fooling i than those of the greatest friendship for Paraguay, and a desire to see a pence |ierpetual and honorable, established between the South America* republics.

The Prcaident will reply only to these principal topica, and that in a frank and brief tnunner. He accepted with pleasure, and also honored the mediation of the t'aited States, at tha time it was off tired by Mr. Hepkina, perauaded that under inch powerful and illustrious ant ptces. the Buonoa Ayrean government would not dare to lueult tha dignity aud honor ef the people of Paraguay. But after a short time the degrading language of official notes, aud of the press In Buenos Ayrea wua re newed. not nuly against Paraguay, but what is more remarkable, against the diplomatic agents of the b'nited Htatea. In elfect, to the greater degree that tha Argentine press reviled the conduct of Mr. Wise, now on account of hii memorandum sent to the Governor ot llueno* Ayr-* through Mr. Brent, and now on acceurit of the conference held ut the court of Biasil with Sr Uunlo, the more did tha note di rected by the Argentine Government te its minister at Kio Janeiro, seem a libellous defamution against tha American plenipotentiary.

It would be n mediating to bring about political destruction. If, then, the honorable agents are authorised to cousent to such oonditious as 1 have ' above stated, they can come by land, accompanied, if they wieh, by Doctor Kennedy to thia capita); the vessel Santa Catalina can be left at the Pilar I with perlact security until their return. The President, undersigned, will conclude with two short remarks as to the lust topics ol tho communication of the honorable agent* Kirst, whatever may be the political intrigues of European monarchies against republican govai uments, it it vory certain th .t with respect to Pura guay. all machinations anduied by her originate from the Governor of Baeuos Ayres. ? Lastly, the agents look with pleasure and with anxiety upon the time when thecommeicialielaUonabetween the United States and Paraguay shall increaso and flourish under reciprocal protection. Paiaguay re-echoes with uone the less de sire, nor with less impatience, this wish for the future, and considers it a political desideratum,'oo long delayed; nor does &hc peimit the present opportunity to pass without expressing to the United States, the acknowledgement, that tho interest displayed by that government in ttie young iudonriiuoncv ef Paraguay, is deoply graves in her remetnbranco The underaignod avails himself of this opportunity- to sisnify to the Honorable Agent* his expression ol high logard. May God guard them many your*. CARLOS ANTONIO LOPEZ.-* This letter closes the correspondence, at least, | so lar as our knowledge of it extends. The reply of President Lopez seems to have given general satisfaction to the Paraguayans, especially that part ol it, which, seemingly distrustful of the good intentions of Mr. Brent, demands a proviso that the Hoii. Mr. Wise shall himself bo the acting mediator. We will merely translate a few remarks on tho subject, from El Comercio of the 21st:? | " President Lopez likewisu condition* the meeting of tho Psinguayan and Argentina plenipotentiaries at llio, under the mediation of .vlr. Wise. The partial conduct of Mr. Brent at Buouos Ay res, and hit shameful participation in tho schemes of Rasas, of which clear proof Una been given by agents around birn, could not but necesdtute the I'reNideut of Paraguay, to free the nego tiatorsfrom the evil influence of the Dictator, and to conlide the mediation to the noble and impartial charaoter of u person who iuspiies a coiifi lence that never could be J | looked lor in ,\lr. iiront or lus acts." I We regret that we can give no further particulars of this important negotiation ; it is to be [- presumed, however, that it is not a little advani ced, since the Paraguayan government has thus ( given light to documents referring to it, and o1 r such a nature as that we give above.

A motion was. several days ago, made by Mr. Duer, that Mr. A. II. be admitted to pr.n-.tiao aa uttomey of this court ; stating ititigj that he had notaerved such a term of clerkship as I would entitle him to admission under the ruiea of the Sui premu Court, an<l founding hit claim to admission on the I eighth aectionof the aeTeiilh aiticle ol the new conetitutiou which proridei, that "any male citizen of Ike age of twenty-odb yeari, of good moral character, and 1 who poasenes the requisite qualifications ol learning an 1 ability, shall be entitled to admiaaiou to practiae in all the Courta ot this State." The reviand atatutea, (I vol. PH.) provide! that couaaellora, . j aolicitora, ami attornoya. akall be appointed, and li| ceoaad to practiae, by the aeveral courta of law and | i equity in which they intend to practiae; und that the upreino court iliall preacribe the ruloa anil regulations | under which couaaeilera and attorney* shall be appointed and licensed iu that court. Under thia atatutory direc- i 1 tion, the aupreme court have, by a general rule, provi- { vi.led that no peraon ahall be admitted to examination aa an attorney, UDleae he ahall have aerved a regular ; clerkabip of aevan yeara, iu tho otttcu of a practising attoraev of that court; but if he haa regularly puraued 1 classical atudioa for four year*, or any ahorter period aftar the ago of fourteen, it may be allowed, in lieu of an equal term of clerkship. Thi* court his.alao.by a general rule pro/i led, that attorneya uiul counsellors of the au piemo court, may b.i admitted to practiae a a such? in tho au|ierior couit, upon taking the outlii of oltlce, and signing ita roll; and aa to thoie who have not been alrea | dy licensed in tho supremo court, the rule ol thia court requites the tame term of clerkship, a* that of tho supremo court. The queation is, are we hound to regard the new constitution, a* establishing a tdle to, or qualification for admission, other thun that wnich ia recognized by tho ruloa of the aupiotne court? Thero, surely, can be up doubt as to the iuteutiou of tbefrumers of the constitution when they incorporated in it Uie abovo recited proviaion Their object, manifestly, was to remove, in a great degree, the impedimenta , to tho aduiiasiou to the bur which than existed. This was the view taken oi it, alike by the friends and the enamici of the proviiion, when Ural proposed in, end when ulterwards adopted by the Convention. The general

popular expression, whether predicting good or evil results, u? likely to flow from it, concurred, that its design wua, and that ita effect would bo, to facilitate admission to tho bur ; and that it changed tho condition of admiaaion from a aevon yours' cleikship in un attorney'a olflco to that of uctual qualification of requisite learning and lability, no matter how expeditiously acquired. The candidate for admiaaiou now cornea before ua and aay a, in the language of the paramouut law " 1 am of tho ago of twenty-one yeare, of good moral character, and posaeaaed of the requlaite qualification of learning aud ability for admiialou aa an attorney of your court. I claim an admiaaion to practlco therein." Cun we answer him by saying, that we will not adjudicate upon that claim o^Utle, which the constitution pronounces adequate, unleaa he bring us evidence, that ha haa served aaven yeum' clerkship in a lawyer'a otllce. Much an answer would, to my mind, be a palpable violation of both the letter and spirit ol the constitution. It would be exacting a qualification, or criterion ot title, other than those which the constitution declares sufficient. It is the business uud duty of courts still to enquire whether tho particular applicant for admission possesses the qualifications prescribed by tho constitution. Thi, may he done by ordering un examination of the candidate to be made by one of the attorneys and counsellors of thA court, or by one of its judges, or in open court. If, upon aucli examination (which should always be thorough) it shell uppear that he possesses the qualifications demanded by the constitution, it is not the business of the court to Inquire whether hu acquired them iu seven yuars, three years' or one month. Courts have the power to look into the qualifications of each applicant ;but not to superadd conoitlons or qualifications to thesa with which tho constitution expresses itself satisfied. It has been suggestod, that as attorneys and counsellors ot courts ere " public'' ofllceru, legislative interposition is necessary to carry the above provision ot the constitution into efl'ect, according to its spirit and letter, from this view, I entirely dissent. Tho constitution provides that the justices ot tho Supreme Court, and the I new Court of Appeals, shall not exercise tho power ol' ! appointment to public office; and it has, therefore, been ' suggested that the Legislature must prescribe the mani nerin which attorneys are to he licensed or permitted to | pruutise.and the mode in which it is to be ascertained, I scribed by the constitution. Counsellors and attorneys are not " public officers," within tire sense and menui ing ol the constitution, prohibiting certain courts from | appointing to olhcn. A public citicei is one upon whom the publtc have a right to call for the discharge or perj romance of his duties. The public have no right to | compel an attorney to bring or defend a suit. After ho is licensed to practise, he may accept or reject a fee or suit at his option ; and the public cannot control him Not so with " public officers" in the sense of the constitution. The public have a right to call upon sheriffs, surrogates, and clorks of courts, for the performance of their duties. They are public ollicers. It is very obvious that the object of the constitution was chiefly to prohibit courts lrom appointing their clerks?a patronage which many good men regard us extremely mischievous. Again: The powor of appointing to public office, implies the power of preferring one candidate and rejecti ing another. The appointing power appoints one and excludes another. This right ol choice and preference is 1 incident to the power at appointing to a public office. | In the exercise of this right, our higher courts have, heretofore, appointed their clerks ana registers. But in i licensing attorneys, counsellors, and solicitors, I have j never, until very recently, heard it suggested, that they i are appointed to a public office, in the ordinary and popular understanding of tho term. hi construing a constitution?the immediate emanations of the popular will- it is certuirdy fit to inquire into the i-opular meaning of words employed in it. In contemplating a public officer, the popular mind would, surely,reat upon objects other than mere lawyers. No one could suppose, that I hyaic.-ans ware ever public officers in the eye 01 tho law or the constitution. Vet, the revised statutes tequired that candidates lor the medical profession should study four years with a practising physician or lawyer, before they could be licensed to practise, and that they could not receive from the Regents of the University the 1 degree of Doctor of Medicine, unless they should I have attended two complete courses of lectures in a medical collego Our revised {statutes also rendered ''physicians amenable to medical societies for professional misconduct. Attorneys and coun' sellers are responsible to the courts that license i them. No one ever supposed, that medical societies ! or tho Kegeuts ol the University, in licensing, or conferring degrees, appointed to public office. Those licensed by medical societies were, always, regarded as ! mars members of a profession of their own choice. 80, attorneys and counsellors hare, generally, bean estaemod officers of the court which liconsed tbem, (aa contradistinguished from officers of the publio.) and members of a calling or profession ol their owe choice. It is, therefore, clear to my mind, that, legislative interposition is not indispensably necessary to carry out the j provision ef the constitution, relating to attorneys and ' counsellors; that ceurta must judge ct tho title of every applicant for admission that may present himself; and, if satisfied that he is of the age of twenty-one years, of good moral character, and that he possesses the requisite ' qualifications of learning and ability, they are bound to j admit him, without reference to the qualifications re: uuired before the new constitution went into effect.

These things tend to alreng'hen our prosperity, and guaranty a continuance of the favorable state of exchanges between this country aud Great Brits a which insures an importation of the piecieus metals, to an extent which we dare not an'i:ipato.
