- MR. EDITOR : I soo in the last ?dvertiter, some
thing ia reference to tho, unsettled condition of
our country : " It ia respectfully suggested that
the Legislature recpnuneqd to theoitizens of each
District to.appoint a,commission to consist of
sight responsible porsons, to whom all matters o'
Indebtedness shall bo submitted, and that they
decido os to bow tho samo shall be settled-having
i duo-regard to justico and equity between the
parties." .: - : . .. . -.. ....
Tho idea seems to mo preposterous in the ex
treme. To say that eight men shall have full
power to settle all disputes, of indebtedness be
iweon parties, when according to law it. always'
:ook twelve, besides one or. two Lawyers and a
Judge, >kc. But it seems to be based upon re
iponsibHity I ask how that is to be done? Where
a the injured party to got redress? Perhaps it
irill bo said by law. Then if that be the ease,
vhero is the necessity of such a course, as prc
cribed. To say the least of it, it is the most '
dropliost idea imoginablo to a thinking mind.
. I am in favor of compromises between all par
ios,.whore the debtor is sot actually able to pay j
ill his indebtedness. But for mc, or the public,

But I do abhor tbo idea to tho greatest degree. ,

ias sprung up on tho subjeot. I think it best,
it least for tho present, to let things take their
:ourso. There aro hundreds of men now hoping
that tho Legislature will do something in their
favor, and this keeps them from -paying 'their
Why, sir, monaro gmo almost crazy on thc

Shall Convicts be Taught the Mechan
The Macon (Ga-) Citizen has a very sensi
ble editorial on this subject, io which the
question is tnken that " no class of the com
munity should have an ovil fastened upon
them from which other classes are exempt
ed." In other wordy lhere is no reason why
the Penitentiary .convicts 6hould be taught
the mechanic arts, while the learned profes
sions are not taught in that institution. A
physician or a luvryer would object tb associ
ate with one of either of these professions
who bad received his education'- ja the peni
tentiary, and this they would have a right to
do. Why should not the mechanic have the
same objectiou with as much reason ? What
applies to the ono class in this respect mast
apply equally to the other. There are other
modes of labor which can be applied to tho
convicts besides the mechanic arts, and the
learned professions, and, therefore ought to
be applied. We are pleased to notice that the
views of the Penitentiary Committee of thc
Legislature, in their late Report, coincide
with ours ; and we may ?ay with the Cit
No class of the corr mity should have an
evil fastened upon t'.em from which other
classes are exempted.
Besides, in the present state of the coun

agement should be given to the mechanical,
and manufacturing interests of the State, in
stead of throwing odium upon them, by plac

The recommendations of the commissioners
are good. The convicts should be employed
in the rock quarries, iron, lime, and coal'
minesj working on public improvements, at
servile labor, as the most useful to the Slate
and least prejudicial to those engaged in hon
orable industrial pursuits-and we hope the.
Legislature will adopt their suggestions.

. 1 The Southern Cross up lodger gleams out
'mid tho wild , light of battit ; the -jwprd of
the vanquished is sheathed, and the land is
gloomy with tho harmless ' sepulchres of our
martyred dead. Blt when' y jars r.pon years
have passed away-when tho last of the
present generation sleep with their fathers,
and new forms throng the old familiar places
-when faction.shall have hushed, and justice
holds the scales.-then, then, rs brighton day,
.and as free . from, blemish md stain, will
stand forth in, bright, relief upon the scroll of
historic fame, the record of the South', dearer
to the hearts of her children now in tho' hour
of sorrow, than when, on the march to victo
ry, she won tlid admiration of* the world.
Pilgrims from other lands shall tread, with
reverent step, above the spot where moulders
the dust of our loved and loi t j while those
who.are to follow us will cherish . as house
hold gods, the names of those.who,^ carving
away through tho fiery path of war, have
written theirjiemes where they can never
die. The principle. for which so many laid
down their lives may not be recognized until
their hames have grown feeble ern the tongue
of friendship, :and been1 dropped, like dead si
lence, from the ear of the world. But it will
struggle back from the hollow bosom- that
on?e bled for it, and ascend ? the : heights of
government And wheo the fa th fol historian
shall descend into,.the vaultb of the.;dead

then discover to whom the wo;Id is indebted

tation, consisting of clergy,- distinguished
officers, and citizens, went frjm Mexico to
Orizaba to meet the1 Emperor. -They1 were
received by him, and the result; of the inter
view was to induce him to change his. plan's

tributed $15,000,000, and citiz ms and capi
talists pledged themselves for a like amount.

widows in Mississippi who need immediate re

are doing what they eau to relieve the help

renders adequate relief at home impractica
ble. Aid from abroad is therefore, indispen

Mississippi, located at Lauderdale Springs, is
doing a noble work for the poor sufferers. But
more than two hundred applications havo
been made already for admittance to the

An earnest appeal is made for assistance, in
porting and extending the " Home," and it is
certain that thc people of Memphis, who have
the means, wili not be slow in giving mate
To OLO CAVALRYMEN".-A young man
from the country, who visited Cleveland, Ohio,
the other day in search of employment, wan
asked by a man to whom he applied if he
could ride horseback, and eagerly repticd in
tho affirmative. His prospective patrou told
him he had an opening for a young man-a
business that necessitated a great deal of
traveling. The applicant declared that he
should like nothing better thar, to travel for
a living, and a bargain was soon struck be
tween the two. But he was somewhat cha
grined at finding that the business consisted
in riding a blind and infirm old horse, in a
circular track, for. the laudable purpose of
grinding tan bark. He declined the proposi
tion. _ ^ _
PRECOCIOUS.-An urchin, leading a small
dog along tho streets the other day, was ac
costed by a gentleman as follows :

" Hain't got any name yet"
? Well, why don't you namo him ? Give
him a good name-call him Andy Johnson."
" I don't like to do that-'iweuld be disre
spectful to tho President."
" Well, then, name him Beau Butler."
" I wouldn't do that, neither, for that would
be disrespectful to the dog." . .
