J. S. RICHAP.DSOX, JR.,
Mr. J. S. Richardson said : Mr. Speaker,
the subject before thc House is one of ;p
and absorbing interest to all ci.i,?s;3 of ibo
peopi?i The eyes cf the entire; State arc
looking with an--:ions concora to our legisla
tion. With many, the action which we shall
take must be a vital one. There ere those,
who feel that if ibey are required now to pay
whit they owe, it mast ta!;p from their wives
and children the little all that has been loft
them in the storm of war which has partied
over our land.
There are those, too, once surrounded with
tho comforts and convetiiencies of life, repo
sing in peace and quiet in the bosom of their
own homes, with their happy and. contented
families around them-the fond mother and
fair daughters, debcats and accomplished
women, not only unused to loll, but knowing
no want which thc husband's and father's
moans did not supply, who now can call no
[ilace home-and whose wife and daughters
are already driven to the drudgery of house
hold labo--ah. even farther, to toil and want,
because the debtqr bolds tho once happy
homestead with all its comforts and pleasures,
and (he ? ithcr holds only the debtor's prom
ise to pay. These, and the picture is no fancy
s?-et'?h drawn from a few isolated instances
of th* suffering and want of our people, but
it a living reality, found suffering and toiling
in ? v ry quarter of our land and among all
gm- ? of socie.ty. These are looking to our
lcgi-1 ixion with even deeper interest, with an
anxiety made keen by thc actual contact
with toil and want, and with a dread that
even the lait promise of relief is to be taken
from them, or delayod so long as to be. too
late for them. There is still another class,
whose eye* are fixed on'us; those, who
w&ajeyer may bo their professions, be it lit
tle or much, feel that the most valued of
ttiej??fl, that wbicij will Outlive everything

them all. We owe a duty to them all. "V

classes for the benefit of the other and i

. It is a duty which we all recognize ai
owe-and never more than he who address

fortunate debtor a* far as it is in our pow*,
and we can do consistent with our soler:
oaths tu support the* Constitution of ll
State and of the United States. And it is i
less a duty--one equally urged by the clair
of Loma:iity and the cry of suffering, to a

worthy our consideration in legislating upi
this subj-.-c', to confider that " he who stei
my purse s'eals trash, but ?e who ato?is n
good name takes that *wh:ch enriches hi
not. but makes me poor indeed."
The aim aud obj-ct ol our legislation th<
should be to devise a-?me means which, whi

itself depriiu the orfditor of any-of I
rights, or carry with it in any shape or for

lit. The great su!j,:ct of complaint ci
uneasiness among tue people is the inU?bte
ness of the country as ?t existed prior to tl
cinacipalioo bf our slaves-thut is, the i
debteduess which was entered into upon
different ba is of properly from that whit
now exists. And t.'iere is great fore:; in ll
nrgdunients urged from this point of vie
f r time and relief, but lhere is no comptai
as to tie indebtedness of the countiy co
traded since the cessation. of hostilities, ai
there should be none. Our remedies thei
fore, should apply only to cases which e
istcd prior to the .emancipation of slavery ai
the cessation of hostilities.
The bili which wc advocate refers only
such cases and leaves untouched what b
2d. The prent obstacle in tho way of ai
legislation tha*. will exiend relief, is the u
constitutionality of anv law which will me
the necessities of the case. The bill belo
us is constitutional. It infringes on no pi
vision of the Constitution of this Stale,
the United States.
The provisions of the Constitution whit
we are in danger of running counter to,
legislating on this subject provides that i
shall pass no ex post facto law. or law ii
paring the obligation of contracts. That
that the Legislature shall do nothing to alt
the terms and conditions of a contract wit

The Lill before us avoids this difficulty 1

under the previsions of this bill and it r
quires thc Defendant equally to accept tl
relief-thc time that is offered to him. The
themselves, then enter into a new contract
they accept thc conditions of the bill, and
course can never gainsay it, or claim that
is au *; ex post facto" law.
.'?. The Constitutional question* being thi
at rest, the only remaining question of ai
importance is-does the bill meet the wan
of the people? does it come up to the n
cesriiics of tue case ? We believe that
does! Nine-tenths of thc cases for suit w
be brought under the provisions of this Ac
and why 2 It is a mistaken notion that tl
creditor is tho inhumane, hardboiled ar
gtasping mnn he has been repressed :o bt
Do you reflect that he is your fellow ma:
that he has been, perhaps is still your frien
and that often he is as much a debtor as 1
is ? creditor. My own experience, and I wi
guarantee the experience cf tho bar in th
House and all over the State will-sustain re
in the assertion, is quite the reverse. He

rigLts be not ignored. Out ol five huudre

These, I hive no doubt, are the instructior
given by creditors throughout our entire Statt
They say that all that they want ia som
portion of the debt on which they may liv
and that the debt will be paid. This bein
the sentiment of thc creditor, will he accep
the provisions of this bill ? What are th
inducements held out to him todo so. Firs'
an almost immediate lien in all the propert,
pf Lis debtor; second, an acknowledgemen
pf every jost debt, and third, a payment ar
nually of a portion of his debt. Th?3, i
seems to me, would satisfy any creditor as t
the debts due him prior to thc ce:.-.alione
hostilities. This, I know, will satisfy ail ti
my clients, and if the bill passes I expect ti
bring everv case I represent which eau b
brought under it, under the provisions of tin
bill. This I believe will bc the testimony o
every lawyer iu the State.
Will the debtor accept the provisions o
the bill? Whauis offered him ? First, tba
his property shall not be sold for five years
and not then if he pays his debts ; and second
that he may pay his honest debts by ins;al
ments of one fifth annually. If it is time hi
wants, he has it. If he wants more, whai: i?
it that he asks for? What cnn it bc but rc
4th. These inducements to both creditoi
and debtor to accept the provisions of tb h
bili are all increased when we consider thc
fairness and liability of ?ts provisions. Il
does not take all from thc debtor, nor does il
deprive the creditor of all. Ir proceeds upm
thc generous principle '* to live and let live,'
and must thus induce compromises and pro
mote peaco and quiet.
.5th. There are objections that, may arise
with some to the bill. I would answer such
as 1 luve heard or as occur tu me.
1st. It may be said ." it does not cover the
whole Case, in that it does not effect jodg
merits already obtained.'' True, nor is it
proposed that it should ; but at the same
time let it be borne in mind that it does not
exclude other legislation ; it is not prohibitory
of any law on that subject, and the friends
of this bill only ask that you will pass it with
out incumbering it with more doubtful legis
lation. Pass it and we have gained much.
Let us not prejudice it because wo do not
gain all you may ask or need.
2d. It is said thc effects of thc bill will be
.to make every ore save at once in order to
obtain bia lien. Not so. Why ? Because
the plaintiff is required by one of its provi
dions to pay down in cash tho costs in every
case before snit could be commenced.' And
if it should have this effect whore is thc in
justice and what, great barm can result to the
defendant, seeing the plaintiff pays in ad
vance the costs and time is granted the.de
In conclusion, V would appeal to each Of
of thc classes I have mentioned, to pass this
To thc friends of the Stay Law I would
say, it giveR you, all the " Stay"-all the time
-you should ask if you are honest and in
tend ever to pay.
To the friends of the creditor I would say,
give ua your support in the passage of this
Bill? because it gives you much-It secures
your rights permanently and pr?vidos tot the
thi pajtjse?it of enott^a out ?f what h?m
you to cnablo you to live on in tho mean
And I appeal lo those who soe iu repudia
tion naught but ruin-ruin to State and peo
ple-a black and damning stain, for all time,
upon thc fair names and credit of a people
whose promises to pay were once free pass
ports, another name for credit and honor,
"wherever they were found. I call upon
these to come to the support of this Bill, be
cause it forever records its verdict against fe
pudiatiori ; because it puts the seal of posses
sorship und fixes thc lien of thc creditor un
changeably upon thc property of the debtor,
and because it secures to thc State that which
was ouce its proud boast, is yet its purest and
best possession and must ever be the brightest
boon we can leave posterity, a name uutar
nisbed by aught of dishonor and a credit un
stained by any taint of repudiation.
The debate was continued by Messrs. Town
send of Marlboro, who made a strong forci
ble speech in favor of allowing the whole sub
ject to rest, and of leaving it to thc honor and
integrity of the peoplo to work out a solution
of the difficulties w!-.ich was clearly beyond
the power of legislation.
Mr. D. Wyatt Aiken, of Abbeville, said that
o:je thing was to be remarked in connection
with this discussion which had escaped obser
vation, namely that the mercantile communi
ty had gone to the North, and except in oc
casional instances, compromised successfully
with their creditors. If Southern creditors
had not been equally generous, it was because
ol the existence of a Stay Law, which held
ont promise of a future settlement, upon favo
rable terina to themselves. But they had
proven singularly and surprisingly lenient, and
he had sufkeient faith to believe that they
would not add to the oppressions which afflict
the country. In concluding Mr. Aikeu sub
mitted resolutions to thc effect that, Whereas
one of ihe results of the war had been a ruth
less and unconstitutional violation of the
rights of our citizens to that property which
was the basis of most if not all of their in
debtedness, and whereas thc Court of Errors,
the highest tribunal to which our people can
resort fin* justice, has decided that all inter
ference with contracts is unconstitutional leg
Therefore be it Resolved, That this Legis
lature, while, appreciating thc magnitude and
importance of the question of indebtedness
of the cuuntiy, and basa lively sympathy
for its oppressed citizens, feels its inability to
render substantial aid to them without an in
fraction of thc law of the land, and therefore
recommends a spirit ot forbearance with each
other, and urges upon both dobtoi and credi
tor the policy of compromising, rather than
of resorting to lkigatiou for relief.
The Chair suggested that the resolution
could not bc entertained until the Special
Order had been dismissed.
Mr. Gailington replied to thc argument of
Mr. Fair, of Abbeville, made on tho previous
day, urging that the Bill of the Special Com
mittee was neither in conflict with the Con
stitution of the United States, nor tue decis
ion of the Court of Errors. There was noth
ing in it which prohibits the service of mesne
or liu.il process, lt simply referred to the
sitting of the court. Ile took issue with thc
position of that gentleman that the creditor
is entitled to all the proceedings of the court
at thc time of the contract as n remedy to
enforc the same, and affirmed that all legal
proceedings were not a part of the contract.
As to the Bill of the Judiciary Committee
(Mr. Richardson,) it was a new remedy en
tirely. It also encouraged suits ; would lead
to an accumulation of costs against defen
dant?, and was a bid to creditors to bring
their cases into court, instead of attempting
compromise. If he desired to increase thc
business of the court.?, he could not devise a
better scheme than that proposed. Rather
than adopt it, he prefers to leave the whole
subject where it stands.
Tho speaker replied to the arguments of
Mr- Haskell on the day preceding, and ani
madverted with force upon the suggestion
made during the debate by Mr. Townsend,
that if the creditor was refused justice by the
courts of the State, he might take refuge un
der thc Civil Rights bMl. A large number of
thc creditors were liberal men, but there are
others waiting to realize all they can, and
from the latter class he desired protection
for tho honest, but now impoverished debtor.
Mr. Fail, said he would appeal to the good
sense of every member of the body whether
granting that the Legislature has the right to
regulate the sittings of courts, it was not nev
crtheless a violation of the law in its avowed
purpose to defeat the administration of justice,
aud hence that the impediment was uncon
stitutional. It had been av?wod that thc
court would have no right to go beyond the
letter of tho bill, but this was a mere subter
fuge and that too practiced with reference to
a coordinate and independent branch of the
Government. Pass this bill and he, the
speaker, would not answer for the result, but
he thought the Chief Justice would not know
the fact ten minutes, before he would convene
the Court of Errors "to take the matter into
consideration. If he did not do it, he would
be unworthy of his place.
VVjtb reference to thc measure proposed
by the Judiciary Committee, it was liable to
. objections, but it was the only plan of relief
that could bo afforded to debtors. It had
been alleged that it would provoke suits,
whereas it threw impediments in the way of
thc creditor by compelling him to advance
the costs, which bc would hesitate a longtime
t.> do when he takes into consideration all the
facts and probabilities of the case.
Mr. .Mullins, of Marion, took the floor in
behalf of the bill from the Special Commit
tee, and in-au earnest .-'.peech treated the sub
ject constitutionally, legally and morally, bold
mg the attention ol' the House closely hom
beginning to end. Cur present space forbids
a synopsis, and his remarks will appear in full
iu another issue.
Mr. Barker, one of the eloquent cham
pions among the opponents of thc measure
was equally fortunate in making a long, argu
mentative and thoroughly prepared speech, in
which precedent and statistics found appro
priate place. Wc cannot .do justice to it by
Gen. Butler, of Kdgcfield, obtained the
floor and will continue tho discussion this
morning. The Speaker presented a commu
nication from tho Senate concurringin the
action of the House that the State Printer
shall ba paid for the work done during the
present session un to the time of his election,
in accordance with his latest bid, and not at
the rates of h's former contracts.
Tho House then adjourned.
In our report yesterday we neglected to
state, while referring to the speech of Gen.
Haskell, that it was in opposition to thc bill
extending the time of holding the courts. It
will prolully appear iu full on Sunday, togeth
er with thc speech of Gen. Carlington.
Some Plnin Talk from Gen. Grant.
CINUINXATI, September 12.
General Grant visited Wood's Theatre
lan night, where he was enthusiastically re

among-it whom there were many soldiers,
paraded before the theatre, and Mr. Engles

that the crowd wished to see him. General
Grant replied : " I cannot and will not see

Alore of the President's Journey.
After assisting at the laying of tho corner stnno
of thc Douglas monument in Chicago, President
Johnson pushed his journey further Westward,
and visited tho great metropolis of -Missouri, St.
Louis, where ho was received with honor and en
thusiasm. From St. Louis he turned his faco
homewards; that is towards Washington. Along
the route between St Louis and Indianapolis,
the capital of Indiana, he was treated with dis
tinction. At Indianapolis, which is in tho midst of
a venomous section, a row occurred in the crowd;
the confusion was so great that the President had
to retiro from the piazza of the hotel. Tho dis
turbance went so far as to result in the firing of
pistols ; one man was killed, and several were
wounded. This may be called the beginning of
bloodshed betweon Radicals and Conservatives.
The probability is that it will not stop here ; both
parties aro armed in Missouri, and prepared for
At Cincinnati, tho city council refused, by a
vote of 18 to 6, to tender the hospitalities of tho
city to the Proside?-4"al party. The Chamber of
Commerce, however, welcomed with honor and
spirit At Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylva
nia, the President was greeted with a public mu
nicipal reception. At Johnstown, Pa., a bridge,
crowded with persons to hail the President, broke
down; thc crowd fell twenty feet; four or five
wero killed ; thirty or forty wounded. The Presi
dent gave a large sum for the roliet of the suffer
ers. At Pittsburg, Pa., as at Indianapolis, there
was a riotous demonstration. At Baltimore, Mr.
Johnson again roceived a grand ovation. And
:it "Washington, where he arrived on, Saturday
last, at nightfall, the demonstration is said to
have beon extremely grand and imposing.
Thus ends Mr. Johnson's Western tour. He
spoke to thc people anywhere and everywhere It
had undoubtedly been better for him had he
spoken loss. The elections, now coming on,
will provo whether or not he strengthened hlm
solf or his party.

" SIGMA," the Columbia correspondent of
the Courier writes as follows :
Hopes are entertained that the Senate will
pass the Bill for the repeal of thc Usury Laws,
which at thc last regular session passed the
House of Representatives by a small majority.
Capitalists and men of business believe that
this is a nccc'sily of the times, and that if
money is left to regulate itself, large amounts
will How from Wall-street to investments in
this State. Thc fact should be remembered
that the'best writers on finance and political
economy have exhausted the argument, and
demonstrated that the old ideas as to usury,
and the laws to regulate rates of interest, are
antagonistic to the truest and best interests
of thc people.
The House passed the Bill to prevent par
ties, who are plaintiffs or defendants in a fruit,
to give evidence, which Bill had already
passed thc Senate. It enables all parties to
testify in their own behalf in civil causes, and
gives permission to defendants in criminal
cases to testify as to facts, but does not re
quire that they should give any. evidence
tending to criminate themselves.
General Butler, of Edgelieled, has intro
duced a Bill " to declare the law in regard to
the liability of purchasers of slaves," which,
after reciting thc facts of thc emancipation
of thc slaves of this State by Ordinance of
thc Convention of September last, and ;he
consequent destruction thereby of all.proper
ty in them, considerately and coolly enacts :
M That all contracts involving the payment of
money for the purchase of slaves that have
been made and ape hereby declared so, be n ail
and void, and that all parties indebted there
for, under laws existing anterior to the 27th
day of September, 18G5, are, and are hereby
declared to be not liable for'such paytheut.'"

is designed as the entering wedge to a gene
