We cut the following linea from the JVsnM OmMttte, aad ss we think they are worthy of perasal by many of the yeung meo of our country, we shalt lay them before our readers. We aee hundreds ol young men ssun terine throueh our atreeta who bave been, by the mia-judged policy of their parents, cast into the world with pride ia their hearta, folly in their heada and notbing in their pocketa, who cannot stoop to work, and yet are almoat eompelled to beg. NVere the induatrioua mech6nica, they might become eerviceable to themaelvea and reaiiectable memhers of the eomraunity, inatead of heing exereaenees which hant upoa but to disfi fare aneiety. ft ia truly lamentante that thia folly is seprevalcnt. We think ao too, brother typo. The New York Herald, in noticing the decision of the Supreme Court of New York relative to thedetention ot Ale Leod, expresses an opinion that the British Minister will now demand his passports and go home, and that the next we shall hear from the John Bulls they will be pelting away at our sea ports, In this belief we must disagree with the Herald. The decision referred to docs not alter the case in a natiònal point of view. It does not piace we i-eoa any more in durancs than he has been ever since ne was nrst taKen imo custody. If his detention is il- legal and contrary to the law ot nations. it is not more so than it was six months ago. Be sides, we know not what right the British Minister has to take cognizance of thedoings of our State Courts. His business is to appeal to the United , States government for redress when ever he supposes a wrong has been committed against the sov reignty of Great Britain ; and when redress is refused there, he mar, or may not, demand his passports. The matter is now settled that Me'Leod must have his trial, and must abide the jus ticé of our laws. We see no way to avoid this, without sac rificing national honor and yield mg to the arrogant pretcnsions of Mother Britain. The Grand Jury have found a true bill, and the Court has asserted its jurisdiction. There is theretore no way to forego a trial, except by a rescue or escape of the pnsoner, or a direct breakmg up of the judicial power of a State. The better way there fore, is for Great Britain to "bidè her time;" to wait pa tiently until her darling subject has takerr bis chance with our laws, and after he is acquitted to make the most of him. Ali the dustshe kicks up about it will only fnjùreherown eyes bedim her own vision blind Her own radgement and mor- tify her own pride. B. F.
