TheI( ilog; Law.
We publishl, this week, a cormounli.
cation upon the recent ordiiance pro
hibiting swine from runtiuzi'g at large
through our streets. The article pre
sents some strong views end Cbodie:
the argaments of those opposed to the
law ; but we aire not prepared to
coincide with the writer ini toto. We

therefore can say nothing alutt its
practical operation, and we would like
to see both sides diseussed helbre
coming to a final decision. We con
fess, that from the first, and uipon first
sight, we havo been in faivor of the
law. We repeat, however, we woudi
-like to see the measure fhirly discuiss
ed, and our colu:.ns are open, for this
purpose, to both sides.
A WORD OF AnvicE.--We see frot
various quatters tl.at corn is already
bearing the enormous price of 6 1 25
per lmshel.' We muISt therehfre ex
pect an advance yet, even upo0n this
exorbitant price cre the coming in fI
a neW crop. It maxy be that t0he m tit'Itl
will be ditliclt to bo ltained at any
price duri' ng the summer. \Ve lave
heard one of the Ioost experieniced
planters we ever knew, and a Citizen
too of our own District, rena k, that
by having his corn ground fmr his
s'ockl he estimated a saving of at least
one-third. Ile ground at hii own
m3ill, and therefore had no toll to lay.
B~ut, if he saved one-third withuout paiy
inig toll, it is mauni fest that there w oil I
be a great saving even after dedarting
toll. We know too t hat by oak in
corn.cobs a few dlays in water with
the addition of a little salt, that ho rses
- and mules will cat them with gtit
avidity, thus savinlg cornt anmd fudth-r
both. If each one wvonlId econoize1.
his provisions more, by resortinug to
the means suggeste-d and b'y planitinig
patches of ena ly corn and peas, the
country at lar-ge mtight, be saved fr'oim
great suffering.

The death of Bill Pool the pugilist
inl conseqi.eciie of the wounds he re
ceived in the Stannix Hall affray has
iccasioned a tremendous sensation
amitng the class to, whieh tie belonged,
and will tend to icrease the natural
antipathy at present existing betweeii
Americans antd Irish inl this city, That
Poole was foully murdered cannot be
doubted ; iid s one or two of the
i arties arrested, are likely to turn
States evidence, the critie will proha
bly be brought home Lo, the perpetra
tors. It is generally believed th it the
attack upon Poole was the resuilt of a
coispiracy. Report says that one at
least of the conspir .tors hid engaged
his pass.ge to Cali orula in anttcipation
of* the event. Puole's chief regret up
on his death bed was, that lie had been
the victim ofa gang of Irishmen.
Morrissey, the file leader of the cite
mies of the deceased, is accused by
the friends of the latter of having in
stigated his assassination. Slartling
developments are expected during the
injuest. Baker who is supposed to
have fired the fatal shot has not been
taken but his escape is impossible.
The funeral of Poole will take place
on Sunday. HiSI remains are to be
interred at Greenwood and will be
attetnded to the graye by an immense
cOileuirse.
