The wood trade.

--We are informed that the negro drivers of wood carts are guilty of other unlawful speculations than pocketing an extra dollar, an exposure of which we made the other day. The evil is aggravated by the driver's selling some portion of the load to people in the suburbs of the city; for instance at Rocketts, and Bacon Quarter Branch. The rascals should be vigilantly watched, for by punishing a few the others would take the hint, and thus a stop would be put to the dishonest practice.
