The Hombstead Law.
In another column will be 'found
the decision of the U. S. Supre'me
Court upon the homestead law. It is
quite *long, bit aA it involves a ques
tion of great importance, to every'on'e,
it will repay a careful perusal. 1h'e
point in question, stripped of legal
toehnicalities is .this : boes the
homestead law protect a tnan fron

The constitution of tho Ijnited Stator
expressly declares thmat no St1te i,,n

this opinion has decided that the

is clearly unconstitutional and tilore

State has no right, afteI- this dalbt is
contreated, tdi absolve the debtor
from satisfying it. This is whait the
legislature endeavored to do : and
what some of our Cironit Judges an
the Supreme Cour t of thoe State deoided
could be done. Sti-ange to say, the
Supreme Courts of all the Southeri
States in which the point was brought
up, agreed with outr Codrts. Them:
decisions have all been roversed by
the Supreme Court of the United
M r. Justice Swaynej in delivering
this opinion, gave a severe but descry
Ed rebuke to the State Judiciary. The
question had been fully settled in the
minds of all leadin g J urist s, long be
tore Justice Swayno deliver~jd his opin
ion, and the Judge~e in deciding as they
did, exhibited either an ignorance
or contempt, of law sufficient to prove
them unfit for the high pocsition they

has had th'e' use of the money lent.
The Legisalaeure, at its last sessi'on,
also amnended the homestead law in
some fes~eots. Whern the dwelling

sufficient to sot, a whole town on

a mystery. Many other instnuces of
the same nature might be mentioned.
Parlor matches have boen 'ound so
dangerous, that they are never used
in stores or hotels in the North and
West. The old sulphur match has
been brought again into use, as pas
sessing many advantages over the
more recent invention. They are not
to liable to be'oarried off by'rats; they
inake a smaller flame ; ahd by the
suljphurous vapor arising, from thom

tLenselves, when in a close place.
We should follow the elample of our

have this right, it is a dangerous one
for the taxpayers. tGivou the power to
