A Fia- run I'h lv i mini; Steamuoat F.x- I'Loiions - Under this heud, in another column, a correspondent proposct a plan for preventing explosiot.K, which, if acted upon, would duubt lest C'lina nearer thun any yet proposed, lo pro venting those terrific hisses of life and proper ty, which are to constantly occurring upon our Western wuturs. The writer requests papers in the West to urge it upon insurance compa niet. The M.inui.T. A few d iyt ago, one of our incrchiintt boutrl.t four pounds of butler, and Wat fined for the net, at the ri'e of about a dal lur per pound. Tho object of the ordianco tin der which this fine wn imposed, is to drive the farmers to the market house to tell their pro visions, and the people to the same pluce to by tlinmj and tho rosiilt will he to drive thu fanner away altogether, und ruiso the price of provi tions. It will raise the price in two ways by keeping provisions out of tho stores, where tho mcrchaiiti are glad to get shut of them at tht tame price they give; and by ckuting the pro ducer to keep hit provitiunt or seek another market. It will injure trade, bucauso where tho farmer takes his produce, ho will buy his goods. A fanner's time is wrlh us much to him at other people's, and ho can't afford lu bo bothered with this kind of noiiseiito. This famine law reads at follows: "Nona of the articlos mentioned in the prece ding tection, poultry, wild g.uno,' fish, meat, butter, cig, iruils, or vegetables. brought within tho corporate limits and ii, tended for Hale, shall be told or i fferedfor sulu until they me tint taken lo the market, and therein exposed for tale, until inuruet hours uro over." The market hours nre now from day light till f) o'clock, and fi oin 4 to 0 o'clock. Farmers bring in provisions from ten to twelve miles dis tance, and oven further. One coining from a distance it not likely to retch the city before 0 o'clock, and in case ho does not, tho ordinnce iinpuies a necessity of wuiting to Hull a dollur't worth of provisions until loo late to return home, and then he must stay ell night a proceeding bath expensive and inconvenient. Hut if wo are not ir isiufonned, the market houtu it not regularly kept open in the afternoon. If litis bo really the cste, (we are not cerluin that it is,) thu matter is still worse.
