-The London Tiddes Council has just com.- to
a decision of rather a remarkable character. At a
ruent meeting J deputation was received from
the Coopers' Philanthropic Society, who aro m
need of assistance in cons?quence of the slackness
o? trade. The Piesidt-nt uf the Society stated that
it numbered 1000 members, of whom 200 were out
of employment, and a large proportion of thc re?
aiainder were only partially employed. Dining
the past eighteen months ?5000 bad been paid io
needy members, and as they had only i'70O or x300
funds, and were distributing ?100 a week, they
asked the Conned to give them credentials to tue
trades with the view 6f getting pecuniary aid.
The Council refused to accede to the request, ou
the ground that the embarrassment of the coopers
was not caused by a dispute betweeu labor and
capital. Had they been on a strike rebel would I
have been forthcoming. . J

fuere is never smoke without tire. Sometime
there is but little fire-but a spark- sometimes a
medium supply of ignited oxygen, and again a
large blaze-but there is always dre. The "?U
dit" reported in u recen' letter in relation to Mrs.
LINCOLN'S incognito visit to tins city on a clothing
and jewelry Kelling expedition, ts no longer simply
an "on dit." It is a tact-an established fact, a no?
torious fact, a disgraceful reality-tis true, 'tis
pity, and pity 'tis,. 'tis true. Mrs. CLAREE has
thrown off her disguise, aud Mrs. LINCOLN ap?
pears uporf the stage. Mrs. AFB'.?AM LINCOLN, the
widow of tho once revored and beloved Chief,
Magistrate of the Republic, and martyr to a cause
which people seem to care about no longer -for
ABRAHAM LINCOLN WAS as President JOHNSON IS
a champion of the Union as it was and ought ti
be, but is no more, in exposing for sale valuabk'
articles; many of which were presented lo lu i by
politicians and office-seekers who were once for
sale themselves, and whoso eharaclers (?) will
De exposed along with their gilts, Mrs. LINCOLN
is at last having sonto satisfaction in avenging
herself upon these Miniuior friends, from whose
abandonment in the day of lier adversity .-he
rinds it neceeaaiy ti? dispose nf a large
portion of her winter gainicnts. Many ot these
articles aro of tho finest texture and must costly
material. Among them we lind, or we may find by
looking into the establishment at No. 609 Broad?
way, a black centre camel's hair shawl that cost
fifteen hundred dollars, a white centre ditto valued
at twelve hundred ; a Russian salle cape for fifteen
hundred ; ? Russian salle boa at twelve (of course
hundred is understood) ; a white point lace shawl
for two, and a dress of the same material (cot made
up) for four ; but, hereafter, ''two" and "four" wo
must- understand the word thousand iustead of
hundred. The broker in whose hands the articles
have been deposited values the entire lot at 124,000,
but they probably cost nearly double that amount.
The distinguished ladv whoae wardrobe ia thus
publicly exposed fur sale, and whose husband once
held the highest post of honor in the nation's gift,
has naught left besides with which to support her?
self and family but seventeen hundred dollars, the
interest of the twenty-five thousand presented to
her by Congress, which ought to have been and
would have been one hundred thousand, had not a
number of Republicans, who claimed to represent
the party of - which Mr. Ln? oi.s was the leader,
voted against the amendment. I should add, how?
ever, what these grateful men may have taken into
consideration, that Mrs. LINCOLN has also an
?owe of three hundred dollars ! ! ! the proceeds of J
Ihe rental ot ' honest Old ABE'S" house in Spring
Now, that the entire details ot this disgraceful
business havefouud their way into the newspapers,
A'here even appears the coi t espondeuce between
Mrs. LINCOLN and her broker, it is probable that
the effects will be disposed of in the most effective
manner, that is to say, at public auction, and as
this will be a novel auction, a sensational auction.

piece.. Iii?- scenery, I nay, in magnificent, mo
gorgeous, but yet inferior to that in the rival spec?
tacle. The inebriation scene in the abode of Back?
us is, however, superlatively grand. Rows of love?
ly women, bearing golden clusters of grape* arise
before our dazzkd view and ascend, but to give
place to others, at whoae superior loveliness wc
gaze with a tantalizing feeling, for we see these
scantily attired forms through a shower ol' wine
that seems, as it were, to endeavor in vain ti
drown this vision of beauty aud shut it out from

Ihe pieco which has been run for so long a time,
md besides this, we have in the former a much
better opportunity to atudv the anatomy of the
i-unan frame. What little dress is worn m the
Devil's Auction, is beyond all doubt much hand?
somer than tho Black Crook costume. Two of
the most beautiful girls whom Moultrie or any one
sise has ever beheld, appear as horses, (hat is to
wy, horses' heads cover their own, yet do not con
seal them, and an equine narrative follows etch as
she walks. The balance of the costume is entirely
in the circus et\ le, in the tigbtoat acception of the
term. These horse ladies each rejoices in the pos
session of a form where every god does seem to
set his seal to give the world assurance ol' a per?
fect model of a woman.
Some portions of the piece are exceedingly lu
dierous and amusing. Rosemary, H little French
peasant, loves no man, Lut is exceedingly fond of
a pet donkev; wherefore on ono occasion .she ex?
claims, "Oh, that you were a man I" when, pres?
to ! the'donkey is transformed into human ahape,

women who lovo bipedal asses, rejects his suit
with scorn; when, presto! again, the ears and
narrative disappear, and then 'tis a different tale

who, however, refuses her; wherefore, to prove
that he is au ass for so doing, she contrives to
transform him again in the semi-donkey ?tate. In
thc sequel, of course the woiuau mairies the ass.
The "Devil's Auction" is a success, and, in fact
a successor that the "Black Crook" has much
cause to fear, the more 90 as Bauvard's was crowd?

It is yet to be proven whether an;. 01 the members
of this moral and mind-somi-ont-elses business

in ten handsome establishments, one in Twenty

To the Kdiiurot ".c Charteslon Daily Kerns:
I have conclnsircly shown iu my former arti?
I think, that tbe assertions of '.Anti-Stay Li
that the Stay Law of force in South Carolin:
the " cause ol'capital being alu of seeking inv
mema in this State," and that " but for it all,
local debt would have been nettled," aro wit
unfounded, and ate based on facts which exist i
in his imagination. And in reply, I have sin
" the real cause of capital being shy of seeking
vestments" here, and have also traced the f
tliat thc indebtedness of the country waa not
moved during the wer, to its tine cause. 11
propose to notico a few other points which y
Correspondent han made, and then to dismiss
lu his second communication, he again dw
upon what lu- calls " the persistent policy o? j]

fatally infected the people ol- titi? State, and

lour correspondent's imagination muai ha

niter, however, may console himself with the i

nowti, passed in 13til, without opposition, or tl;
aintost possible,-in the popular branch ot the Lei

intil the session ol lSoo, when its passage was n
isled tor the first time after its original euac

ile, and by all departments of the Government
unng all this time. In May, 1SGG. a case wa

iheriff of Cbarlestou, and was decided without ai

he Act to be in conflict with the Constitution o

he impression that they ari the result ol the ol
iris of debtors only, who, [rom interested mo

borities after the courts had decided Ute princi

qnal, wealth i-xerted superior power. Bul ni thia
ase it would seem that Ile* poor and needy have
ontrolled the legislation of the country, not only
gainst the Constitution, hut against the rich and
lowerfnl, that falsehood mid stupidity have out
ritter] truth aud wisdom, and fastened upon the
itate measures which have prostrated her credit
nd inflic ted the deepest wounds upon her honor
nd prosperity. Does any one believe thia ? It so
would regard him as ?urpasain^ even a Charbo?
on factor in credulity.
But net only have these unprincipled debtors,
who have not paid their debts in twenty years
.ithout the interposition of thc sherill,' ha<l their
un way in the Legislature, but they have also
nade a dupe of General 8lCET.ES I
lhis attempt to impugn the motive.-, and asperee
he character of those who differ with ''Anti-Stay

Haulier m which the hiller have always discussed

I- ibis Kui. is it just m liberal: Would any mau,

lt is for just auch a person that Stay Laws are
mad?, for one who is deaf to the cries ol' wretched?
ness and want, and inoVcd only by thc maiitivts ol
a nature whose every hope, thought and feobng is
self. Who is it, I would ask, that has advised
debtors, having the means to pay their debts, not
to pay them ? 1 doubt whether he eau be found.
The debtor who is now abie to pay and does not,
is not only dishonest, but a fool. But it is quite
another thing to say that, under the present cir?
cumstances of tho roan try, the property of tho
people should not bc sacrificed lo gratify, the greed
of unfeeling creditors: that such a policy would be
unwise and ruinous. This is the ground upon
which interf?rence with the process of the Courts
has always beeu placed. It is not merely a ques?
tion between debtor and creditor. Such legisla?
tion is not only intended to protect the poor and
weak against tho rapacity of the rich and tho
strong, but its object is beyond and higher than
this; it is, to secure the greatest good to the com?
munity, to save the State from general bankruptcy
and rain. It is in vain to say, that it is best to
leave this maller lo be regulated by the people
themselves. Before the Slay Law waa set aside,
we were told that creditors would act- with humani?
ty and forbearance toward their debtors. What
are the facts ? As soon as the Courts were opon?
ed, there was a g?n?ral rush to get judgments,
and at the ensuing term, it is estimated that thirty
thousand cases were issued in the small State of
South Carolina. What a commentary on the hu?
manity aud forbearance of creditors ! The single
item of costs on this number of cases, before, ihm i-'
ly settled, will amount to lour or live millions dol?
lars, a sum nearly sufficient to pay the whole dobt
of the State.
It is not objected, as overv ono knows, that
debts should be paid, but that since thc war tho
country has been in such a condition that pay?
ments should not be enforced by law. The peoplo,
as I have shown, have not been ?ipnnitted to make
anything to pay debts with. To pay requins
money-ready cash. The burdens and ravagea of
the war prevented thom from making money
during ita continuance, and consequently left
tin-in without any at its close. During the years
following, 18?J and 1S(1U, it is well known that
nothing was realized from planting, not enough to
defray expenses. At the beginuiug pf the present
rear it WM a hard struggle for subsistence. But
for the help of a few liberal-minded factors in
Charleston (I hope it will not prove that they
have beeu too credulous) I kuowmauy, very many
planters who would have been compelled to
abandon their plantations. These are facts, and
facts are stubborn things. Take thin condition of
thiugs, in connection with the unsettled political
stale of the country, and it requires little reflec?
tion to come to the conclusion that if property
should even now be forced to sale, it ?TOaid be
sacrificed and that still deeper and wider min
would follow than that which is now to bo seen on
every hand. This is not a matter of mere argus
ment or speculation; its traill has been tested by
actual experience. The property that was sold
under execution since the war, during the interval
in which such sales were allowed by the law, was
sacrificed- sold literally for nothing.
No one denies that there are individual cases of
great hardship resulting from the suspension of
the process of the Court?. There are dishonest
debtors as well as dishonest and unfeeling credit?
ors, and in some instances, no doubt, the former
have tsken advantage of the law to evade the pay?
ment of their just debts. But this is the case
with all laws. Wicked and had men, everywhere,
and at all times, nave perverted the laws to pur?
poses of fraud aud injustice. Thia is no test of
the goodness or wisdom of a' law. The legisla?
tor deals with communities, not individuals; he
lays dow ii general rules; be does not pretend to
frame his laws so as to reach absolute good in
every case. The question here is, whether, in
view ol all the leading iutereats of the country, it
was not beat to poatpone a general settlement of
the indebtedness of the people until the great po?
litical question now at Uisue nad been settled; un?
til business had lapsed into ita A>U1 channels; until
trade and commerce had beenr??tored to a healthy
state, etui property had r*acL*71' to some-thing ap?
proaching its former value'' The Legislature was
of this opinion, the Convention ol the State
thought so, and the military Authorities have come
to the aame conclusion. How long we are to re?
main in this transition slate is beyond the reach
of my mental vision. Take the mosl hopeful view
of the future we can, and dark aud disuia1 is the
prospect. While faction rules thu hour in die po?
litical world, the very agencies of nature seem to
have conspired to made our desolation more com?
plete. But we should not despair altogether.
There is a just (loo who preaidea over the des?
tinies ol nations. Ile will not hide his face al?
ways from those who walk m the ways ol right
eousness. Let us do cm- duty lo Him, to our?
selves, ami our country; practice the golden rule:
"Whatsover ye would that men Bhonld do milo
you, do ye even so io them," ?ndthis time ol chas?
tening will noon pass away, and the night of our
sorrow be succeeded by a brighter sun I hun our
eyes hu ve hehuld for many days.

If we are bound to declare war against tier

to have declared it against the United States for
thc tone of Mr. Seward's dispatches in thc Mc-?i
