Lawyers, in every age, and all governments have been leading spirits, and hsve exerted, upon the affairs of human society, an influ ence that has been unequalled by that of any other craft or profession. Thi. arises, partly from the necessary su periority of their mental t mining, and partly from the Intimate connexion existing be tween the practice of the profession, and the observance and enforcement of human rights. The mental training is the result of stubborn necessity. He who would practice law suc cessfully, must understand the principles of the science both in its general principle, snd its abstruse details. If he doe. not under stand the Law, he will soon cease to prac tice. It is with him . question of bresd. A man may be humbugged upon a question of Theology or Philosophy; he may be deceiv. ed In the practice of medicine, but let him lose a law suit in which he ha. embarked both hi. money and bia feelings, through the incapacity of his counaeland he realizes the fact that ho is imposed upon; he feels it in his pocket and in his heart - Hence it is, that the Lawyer, bread depend, upon his success, and his success upon his learning. We are indebted, principally to members of the Bar, for our system of Government and Institutions of the country. The Bur has filled our Legislative halls, furnished ex ecutive officers and supplied military leaders; and it. wisdom controls, to a greater extent than any other influence, thf popular mind. Il is to be regretted and hmented that a profession so learned in it. attainment., .0 noble in it. aspirations, nnd so salutary in its influences, should have its fair escutcheon blurred and soiled with the names, conduct and character of a horde of low and hungry reptiles wearing the human form whom I have denominated "Pinhook Pettifoggers." A great number of young men possessing merit and mind, both with and without means, have accumulated honor, and for tune, in the profession. Others, without sense or merit, seeing their success, after having themselves failed in every enterprise of life, at thirty or thirty-five, without any mental training, and with a large family, take it into their head, to "study Law." They read "Blackstone and the Stntutes" for three or four months, nnd are admitted to the Bar. When you talk to them of the crowd ed condition of the profession the length of time it require, to master its subtleties, and make a support by its practice, they re ply, "O, I can make a support in the Justice's Court in my DeesHct." Being destitute of principle, they endeav or to obtain a justice', practice by stirring up dirty little controversies among the neigh bora. They start up one t Inst between two irascible men and industriously per egrinate from one to the other, telling each with great indignation how outrageously the other ha. treated him. They occupy the eneviuble relation to the parties which Ran sey Sniffle occupied to Billy Stallings and Bob Durhum in their celebrated difficulty. Ultimately, after much trouble and effort the suit is commenced, and the plaintiff gives to one of these gents hi. note (which is insolvent) for five dollars. It is needless to say how he looks, talk, and feel, at the idea of obtaining a "fee." "The increase of my pructice," "My caws," "Professional re nown,!' "Forensic laurels," die, are common plnce expressions with him. He feel, more important than Coke did when his argument settled "The Rule in Shelly', case;" and he thinks that Webster's speech, in the Girard College ensp, is a stale production, compared with his effort before the. Justices of the Pence, whose magisterial dignities are sup ported by the projecting root, of some aged oak. Hi. client under his advice, aues on an open account for about twenty nine dollar. and .evenly five cents, the aggregate of which is made up of various items, such as 1 pint of whiskey, I quart do, 1 peck of taters, 1 teacup of salt, 1 pan of meal, IJ lbs soap, 1 half day. work of son, hire of blind horse I day, to sundries, &c, &c. As a matter of course, the defendant pleads a set off of thir ty dollars made up of items, similar to those in the plaintiff', account. They can prove their accounts by their own oath, and .wear the other', account into fits. They close and plaintiff's counsel informs the defendant that he has the "conclusion," and .ay. to hiin "go on and make your speech," to which the defendant replies: "I've got nut hen to say, but I swore to my account and hisen's onjest" Al ter a labored argument from (he counsel, the court gives judgment in favor of the defendant for twenty five cent, and "cost of suit" The plaintiff, in a perfect rage at the result goes to his Lawyer lo know what to do, reminding him frequently that he said that he was "surtin to gune the case." The Lawyer delivers a tirade againal the "fool corte" for its "ignerrunce," tnd tells him he will "snacerrare" the case, and show the court that they "can't run over him and all 'aw in that way." 1 he next court day, the remainder of the plaintiffs "truck" Is old to pay the cost arid thus the case ends. It can readily be seen why it is that a vul ger prejudice exists in the public mind against the legal profession. It is because ihe trinAoofc Pettifogger is made the elan, dard by which the profession is judged. A number of men have been admitted to the Bar. "he uiiL'hl to have been rejected. They cannot sustain themselves at the practice, and some of them, in the name of chicanery, have perpetrated high crimes snd miademeau ors, and thus reflected di.graoe upon the en tire profession, A higher toned, more noble sot of men never lived than most of the Lawyer, and I believe that they ara the only clans, whose daily occupation i. con flict snd strife, that maintain cordial and friendly .ooial relations. It is tn be hoped that the dsy will soon come when the Bar will be cleansed snd these hanger, nn will find It convenient to go elsewhere la carry on their operation.. COM MON SENSE, For the Port.

In the ordinary state of aocisty which pre vails in civilized countries, it most needs be that offence, come. A certain average pro portion of homicide., robberie. and misde meanor, will be found; rising or lowering, psrh.ps, with the .tat. of th. political bar ometer, snd the fluctuations feircunisUDcea, but sure enough to be calculated upon in tha . proviaional arrangements of our court, of justice and our prisons, and exhibiting, from yesr to year, features of a terrible sameneis. But apart from this, there are form, of crime more predominant than usual in some condi tion, of social life and in certain period, and localities. Different age. and different at mospheres hsve produced, in monster growth, one or another of these form. Our g and society have their characteristic vice; and it i. -Fr.ud. The natur. of the man usually impel, bim to the kind of wickedness into which he plunges; whether It be such a. ha. left some element, of honesty end daring, or a vie ut terly degrading and destructive. Th soul expresses It quality by lbs evil in which It delight., a well a. by th good it approve and love. It ia the earn with communities, their moral and aooial condition gtnerat tha vice, to which their prevailing natur assimi lates, whil th spreading corruption punish Well a proclaim th iniquity. Th mtan nes sf th pet crime of our day cheatery springs from, snd reflect, upon, th society where it grow into full luxuriance. In th day of ronantio highwayman, stern necessi ty, or th love of adventure) was mixed up with th violence perpetrated, and often th grace and courtesies of nobler scene wer kept in play by act of gallantry and gener osity on th robber' part. But th villain who violate implicit trust who quietly tit in hi oflice to forge and falsify name and accounts, keeps up a system of fraud fer month and year live in an atmosphere of lies, and sells his manhood piece by piece ia a sort of criminal with whom tho bold knight errant of the road would scorn to keep torn, pony. The abundant production of such shows that the lifsblood of the social body i impoverished; for the excrescence thrown out are loathsome as well aa dangerous. How much even of the bloody crime of th present day is the fruit of thi wretched knavery! Almost every murder can b traced to thi working of covetousntss. j This predominance of th meanetorm of vie in our country, among great and petty criminals, may be connected with th relaxa tion of the moral bonds of social life, which is too often the result of great and universal commercial activity. Commerce is god snd glorious in itself; but every power can be pushed to such an extreme, ss to master Its investor. Where competition is keen, and profits are small, no room may be left for other considerations, sod hearts and soul may go for nothing iu th relation between seller and purchaser, employer and employed. When the luxury of a conscieoc cannot b afforded on the aid, it is very apt to be dis pensed with on th other. Philosophical and humane commercial men may judge how It i best to meet the acknowledged evil, th fruit of which are becoming more fearful every dsy, and how to destroy the hydra-headed monsUr w ithout arresting th engine of businse, which our national interest requir to bt kept up to it highest rat of rapidity. That ought to be soru way of curing lh moral laxity that render poasible such systsrosti frauds. Th law cannot eradicate th de spicable sin, whose perpetrator it keep in awe; yet society can do something toward il by checking th inordinate love of display, reckless extravagance, and indifference to tha rights of other, of which fraud is th natural isue. t-y Th following i said to b an xcl lent recipe for milking lager beer: "Tak ft barrel, fill it with rain-water, put in on pair of old boots, a hsud of a lost fall' eabbsge, two short sixes, a sprig of wormn ood, and a little yust."
