The New York Time of the 87th, Thursday,
speak, of the failure of Jacob Utile thus:-
"Little failed again yesterday and hi exam-
pie was followed by several others. They
were all, however, of the fraternity of stock
gambler., and failed mainly because they
found it more convenient todo su than to
pay their losses or fulfill their contracts."
The explanation of Little's failure the Times
rivea thus:
These contracts were for the dilivery of
mocks on nine, and as they are noi recog.
nued in law His Tor those who make them

THE PINIIOOK PETTIFOGGER.
Trom tbc 8oathcrn Watchman.
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,

A Good Horse. The New York Spirit of

of a good horse:
1. Hi. eyes, even when aeon in tha stable,
are perfectly clear and transparent and the
pupils or apples of the eye are alike in color
and size.
3. On being nipped in the gullet, he will
utter a sound like that from a bellows. If,
on the contrary, he should give vent to .
dry, husky, short cough, beware of him.
His wind i. unsound.
3. His legs are smoth and "clean." If you
find bunches of puffs, or a difference in size,
though he may not be lame, disease lurks
there.
4. If broad nnd full between the eyes, he
is susceptible of being trained to almost
anything.
5. If some white or parti-colored, he is
docile and gentle.

THE VICE OF OUR AGE.
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.
