O Gen. John 13. Gordon, has been

Mr. Stephens has received the nomi

d lamented A. 1R, Wright. With Gor.

berry. If the General Assembly had
an eye to the true interest at.d welfare
uf the wh.i>e & ate, if could well see
the fatal poLey of imtposing a tax that
absorbs the very life blood of the
State, thereby retarding its matorial
progress, and excluding capital and
immigration froi it. The people
would be eontent in pay ing an exhori
taut tax, had they asaurances that it
would be properly disposed of and not
equandered away. Nor can the
d - rinant party in thi. State ever ex.
pect the credit of the State to be re
stored until they act reform, and not
merely speak it.
The Bankrupt Aot-Its Proposed Ropeal
We are glad to observe that a bill
has passed the United States Houso of
Representative. for the repeal of the
Bankrupt Act., and we doubt not that
it will be finally adopted by both
branches of Congress. The question
has boon often raised as to the con
stitutionality of the law, and al
though its enactment originally may
have had a good design, in niost in
stances what good theoe is in the law
has been certainly perverted, and its
provisions made to subsorv3 a bad
end. The Act itself has been the
means of the commhsion of more
fraud than has been afforded 1-y any
other Act of our National Legislature
that wo know of. Of course there are
oxeeptional casca. where no advantage
has been taken to commit fraud, but
generally speaking, it has been used
for Do other purpose than to rilieve
one's self of just indebtedness to the
detriment of one's creditor. And it
ham always been an iinexplicable mys
tery to us how a man, iccognized as
an upright an honorable citizen, could
seemingly preteui to respeot the bind.
lug nature of a solemn contract and
then by tne foil swo-p destroy the
efreor ot all obligations entered into
by him, leaving his creditors but an
insignificant pitt:mec, to !atisfy their
honest claims. Our view of the caie
may be charnetorized as "old fogyish,"
but there are such things os honesty
and dishonesty, and thore is no mid
die ground between them. We do not
wish to be understood as saying that
a man in taking tho bene6it of the
13ankrupt A ot nceesarily does a dis
honest thing but we (do say that the
majority of Bankrupt catses are un
blushing frauds, and if properly in
vestigated, would be found to be such.
Looking at it in this light, we hail with
no little pleneure the probable repeal
of a law that has, in our humble opin
ion, dono the country infinitely more
harm than good, and is calculated to
work still gr enter injury to our peo
ple, if allowed to remain on the sta
