BENJAMIN GRATZ BROW N.
Justice at Last.
Gov. Scott, Treasurer Parker, and
Secretary Cardozo, are at present -en
gaged in a bitter controversy through
the columns of the Columbia Phenix,
Cardozo fighting both the others.
The object of the controversy seems
to be to fix the responsibility for the
frauds in the issuing of bonds, about
which there has been so much said in
the public presr, both in this State
and abroad. Crimination and re
crimination are indulged in very free
]y, and facts are being brought to
light that will materially assist the
-t txpayers in their prosecution of the
thieves who have plundered our
Treasury. Fresh developments are
given to the public every day or two,
and the meshes are being drawn clos.
er and closer around the guilty offi
cials who have sacrificed the dearest
interests of the State to their own
private gain. Justice is calling
aloud for its miserable victims, and
we may soon hope to see the corrupt
"State Ring" receive that punishment
for their crimes that they surely mer
it. Lot all honest men, be they black
or white, step forward to support the
charges made against these unblushing
thieves. Let them see to it that the
honor and credit of the State is speed
ily vindicated, and the result of their
en'tocrlftrts wfbipace a'id pros.
The Bankrupt Act.
HIon. Wm. I. Clawson, the able
Register in Bankruptcy for our Con
gressional District, has communicated
the following information to the York
ville Enquirer, which will be of in
terest and value to our readers:
Mr. Editor: As doubts have been
expressed as to the extent of the re
lief afforded by the bankrupt act of
1867, and the several amendments
thereto, I deem it proper to make the
following statement :
The amendment to the act, approv
ed 10th June, 1872, allows to the
bankrupt all the property exempted
by the laws of each State of force in
1871, in addition to the five hundred
dollars worth ut property allowed un
der the originaml act.
This gives to each bankrupt in this
State, two thousand dollars worth of
property, to wit: One thousand dol
lars worth of real estate, and en.
thousand dollars worth of personal
estate. After the bankrupt has been
discharged this property becomes his
absolute estate to dispose of as he
chooses, either by sale, gift, devise or
It is not necessary, as has been sup.
posed, that the estate of the person
applying shall pay fifty per cent of all
his debts; but if the estate which
comes to the hands of the assignee is
sufficient to pay fifty per cent, of his
individual debts, contracted since let
January, 1809, exclusive of the debts
contracted before that time, he is en
titled to a full discharge from all his
debts. If it is not sufmcient, still he
is discharged from all individual
debts contracted before that time, and
from all his security debts, whether
contracted before or after that time,
leaving nothing to be paid but his
individual debts contracted after 1st
