WmstiNm;OAr March 14th, L1. .
A Meage from Hi Ezsillecy the Governor, was
delivered by tdu Deput Secretary of tih Coloey:
Mr. pratker ari Geniaeea of the .Ilw of
Assmby, t
The act of Parll n of Ith 6th of George the 4th,
impoes a duty of dVailigs sterling on every barrel
ol' lear, nd ten pea sining an every buhsel of Maie,
or Il~ Corp, in.puM inte the Briish West Iudies,
fromthee Unilted Staaof America, or any foreign State.
Thle damis are to he allected by li Majelsy's Cuoslo
Hui, and tol e pid ever to tie Recuiver General ofthe
Colony. Sine it pauCing of this act, the yearly Reve-
nue and Appropriation Bill hi contained a clause, ex-
eopting thle Receiver General front calling upon the Col-
luctor, for so much of thee duties as *ere Iayahle upon
Flour and Corn imported for tlie service of Ilia Majesty.
in the Revenue and Appropriation Bill of last year, tlis
clause was united. Under tihe iii rersion lhal, in coOse-
qieneo of the repeal of tlnu non-intercourse act, orders
would shortly be received from home, transmitting another
scal of duties, as far as regards the importation of Ame-
rican produce, I did nut draw the attention of the House of
Amemblv t ttiu omission of tli clauses alluded to. As,
however, the dutioe have no been alleged, and the Conm-
usimariatl Lpartmelt ha, consequently, to pay to the
contractor, a higher rate for the Flour sand Corn required
for tim supply of Uie Garison, I recommend that in the
Revenue and Apppopriation Hill of the present Session,
thle clauseexempling the Receiver General from calling
upon the Collector of lls Majesty's CustomsI, for so much
of thiuseduties as would be payable upon Flour and Corn,
isipormed for His Majesty's service, be renewed.

Tins state' of things often continues, with Jmrt intervals of abmement, during the Hhole morning ; tew men, however, have UmIiIv strength enough to continue long in the Iteat, noise, and pressure ol this raging group. Some retire awhile, imarse, and |ale to recover ilnfir strength ; but urged by cries whi<'h |>roccetl from the mass (for each party proclaims its triumphs, as the price fiws or falls, with deafening shouts,) iliey rush aguin into the arena and lesiime the fray. Ilillierto all bait lxeii biHin, intense seriouMiess, lieighteiV ed soiuetimeii by disputes and jK-rvma I feelinys and fuiv, when it fier bombs charged with sswdust ; they slap, bump, ami jomUj each other ; Karihok>mew fair, or the most exhilaratinjg moment of a breaking up for the holidays, presents mulling ecpial to it for uoimj or extravagance; and tlie whole fndic generally ends with the Black," or some otiier popular tune, sung in full chorus by all present ; even those wlio have been ruined in the course of thu morniog mingling with wihl mirth with the rest, partly from hahit, and partly to conceal their distress from tlieir com|>aninn, which yvouKI, if suspected, deprive tliem of a last de|)erate cliance of retrieving their fortunes. All this may seem ut fust sight mere childi>ii folly and extravagance ; but it is perhaps an instinctive effort of nature lo recover Irom the effects of tho violent aud overstrained action to which tlieir spirits have been exjxjsed. This interlude i.s, however, of sliort duration, and in a few minotes all is dei'p, concentiated, furious excitement a:.ain. On tliesc occasions it some'liiues happns, tliat ona of those dense yellow fogs, whidi often darken and choke up thu narrow |>urts of the city, tlurows • dtttip kIooiu uvur this st/u(j>ltnK group ; tli s jMrct ami contusion of the scene iH'Coine then diabolical ; lamplight is substituted, ami hardly serves with its yvllow glaring light to di.stingui>li the anxioas, agitated countenance passing alternately from light to darkness, while much of tlie picture, is hidden in wIimi a painter would call — frightful masses of shadi*. This knot of men, so occupied, form what is caMed the" Stock Market:" tlie price which is established by them is quoted in llie news[Mipers, and affects the projH.*riy of all holders of, 4>f speculators in, the fune class of persons who are intereslel in tliese niictiNltions in tlie character of storkholders, and conhiiiiig ourselves to those who make them the medium merely of gambling, it may be estimated [lerhaps that five thousand {)crsons are, rsons who surround llia gaming-table are in the result of the game there. .\hout one thousand of tliese are connected with iIn! house, and pretty tie iierally therefore on er of p-rsons. It will readily be conceived that the men who are devoted to so peculiar ami engroasing a pursuit, are dbtinguishabki from otiier classes of the coiuniunity, and oven from those with whom nominally, as men ot busfneat, they are apparently iniermiugled ; tlieyhave in fact, not the slightest pretensions to the character o( men of hu iness, and have no more direct coonex ion with them than ib' members cf llie Jockey Club or of tlie betting rom at Ni-wmarket. The phrase of good or bad times applies not at all to them, or in a n'.ims rlirectly op^xxute to its usual application ; all iliey want is fluctuatkin in 'lio |>rice d stock ; and, conscipiently, tiiiws of storm and disaster are to them, as to birds of piey or Cornish wreckers, times of activity and harvest ; they are, tlierefon*, a se|Mrate and distinct class and have, as nuLdit be expected, peculiaiities of cliaracU'r, and nia.Toer, and ap|>earance. SMie persons indeed, who affert, tike Sanr|io*s kinsman, afiae |alate in tlicse matters, pretend (hat tliey cnn always distm'.Miish a stock Fxchange man tr>m others, by a kind of • (tiViiand, reckless, sUnuish manner ot d)ing things, and a mixture of the ('dy and TaltersallN in his dress and api)earance. Tin; sudden changes and appalling risks, to which tlwir occupation subjects ilietn, cannot always be favourable to health or tranquillity. Thews and sinews, indeed, that seem proof atraiust an^ exertion, are shatterecif>d that nieuliuu VI dl be uude of tbcui licrc. TlK-y are, as indiM iw.iU,< l\ distinguishable from tho rest ; but, Hcliiig in ibeii national spirit, ihey cling logetlier pretty nnuh Ift their schemes, and agree at least in trying lo spoU the Fgyptians ; tliey are, alst), |Mrha|s moie'reckh-ss and oU stinate in encountering large and decisive lutx^iids tlmn l (ientiles. Some of tliem have ac<|uirl immenw^ wealth; but it is often attended with riMiiarkwbly littk* im(irovemeni in manner or ap|Karance. We have seen a Jew worth • cpiarter of a miliiim, who slill retained iIhj look and manner of his breilireu, who obligingly preM>nt baskets of iiranges to tlie public at the Bank with tinastounding offer of ten for 8ix|>once Singing in tlie Stock Kxcbange has Keen mentioned, but only as affording occasional recreaiiun ; i( MTves however, much more inqmrtanl pur)Nises ; all slight violations of the rub s of the houM-, or indeitl any con duct in a menii>t>r iliat gives displeasure lo tlie resl, ex(Mms him to a regular son of musical pillory — i1m ctil|>ril is surrouuded by a compact ami inqmrious circle of choristtrs, and lorced to stand in that awkward and insutattHl situation, while (fod save the Kine,' or some other i^qHilar song, is lN>ing sung ; he then takes off his hat, makes a bow all round, and is ndeased. Often, however, wlien lie thinks ho isalHHit lo escajie, either because h'w oAence has been griev OILS, or else that lk sinirers Hie in unusually goo, that we know of, nvuublic, was surrounded and sung lo in the above mentiont d manner, whenever he made his appearance in tlie Iioum*.
