Thursday Morning, Feb. 21, 1867.
Thc measures designed to afford
relief to debtors, which i nive hereto?
fore boen enacted by thc Legislature
of this State, have been pronounced
unconstitutional hy our highest
courts, und, of course, if ?my legisla?
tive enactment eau temporarily ease
the burdon of our people, it must
have provisions that escape tho pio
hibitions of thc Constitution. We
much doubt that any measure of this
kind cai. be-devised. n.Miough some
of the District papers of the ?State
give too painful evidence, in the
lengt h of their advertisements headed
"Sheriff's Sales,7' that creditors' le?
niency is at a discount in those local?
A subscriber from another District,
in renewing his subscription to the
"I have boen a constant loader of
thc Phcenix for the last year, and the
only fault 1 find of it is its senti?
ments on the debt question. If you
knew the true condition of that class
of citizens wdio, of all others, wore
thc bone and sinews of the State, (I
mean the farmers,) you certainly
would favor such remedial legislation
as would save thom from pauperism.
Hoping you will yet, notwithstand?
ing the constitutional difficulties, ad?
vocate the enact mont of laws by our
next Legislature that will save tho
people from ruin. Thc calamity is
beyond the reach of private Christian
charity to remedy, and consequently
can only bo mot but by wise legisla?
There can be no one that more
deeply regrets the impoverishment,
and suffering, especially among our
farmers, than we do; without they
prosper, every other interest droops,
and general depression in all busi?
ness must follow. If remedial Legis?
lation were possible, without infring?
ing upon the safeguards which are
thrown around the inviolability of
contracts, we would be glad to see
such a course pursued. Human en?
actments, though perfected by the !
wisest mon in our public councils,
are necessarily detective, and we
know of none of the stay laws now
being enacted by some of the South?
ern States that carried with it equal
justice to both debtor and creditor.
Society is so constituted that there
will be merciless as well as merciful
creditors, and dishonest as well as
honest debtors; an illustration of
which is the parable, given by the
Founder of our religion, Lu the ser?
vant whose debt was forgiven by his
lord, but who immediately turned
round and sued his foliow-.servant.
Our friend ami subscriber will agree
with ns that there would bc no neces?
sity for stay laws, if tho simple and
sublime rah; enunciated by the Sa?
viour, "Do unto others as you would
have others do unto you," was the
code which governed society in this
day of our tribulation. Lut there is
too much truth in what he says, that
"the calamity is beyond the reach of
private Christi.m charity," simply
for the reason that the calamity is
wide-spread, while the latter i.-> a rare

LADIES' ADORNMENTS.-It is not to
be supposed, loi* a moment, that la?
dies of tue present day resort to arti?
ficial means of increasing that nativo
loveliness which, "when unadorned,
is adorned the most." Their groat
grand-mothers, however, thought
differently; and so numerous hail fe?
male falsifications become over a cen;
tm-y rigo, that it wa;; deemed necessa?
ry to introduce into the English Par?
liament, in 17'JO, an act, from which
the following is an extract:
"All women, of whatever age, rank,
profession or degree, whether they
be maids or widows, that shall, from
and after this act, impose upon and
betray into matrimony any of his
Majesty's male subjects by paints,
scents, cosmetic washes, artificial
teeth, false hair, Spanish wool, iron
stays, hoops, high-lieoled shoes, or
bolstered hips, shall incur the penal?
ty of the law now in force against
witchcraft and like misdemeanors;
and tho marriage, upon conviction,
shall stand null and void."
Tilters and water-falls were not in
vogue in those days, or Bradley, with
his Empress trail, kc, would have
como to grief.
STRONG LANGUAGE.-While review?
ing the Louisiana bill, on Saturday
night, Mr. Doolittle said its title
should be amended so as to read,
not to restore civil government, but
to organize hell in the State of Lou?
isiana. [Applause in tho galleries,
mingled with hisses.]
"We loam from ti Mobile paper that j
Judge Gatos, of Louisiana,, lias ron- i
dereel a decision which may be of |
importance to many former slave
holders, should it become a precedent
for the courts in other States. Ho
says that the logical sequence of tho j
action of tho State iu emancipating |
slaves must bo, that when tho right of j
property in that whioh had hereto?
fore been treated as such by the j
laws is destroyed, the laws to regtt- !
late the rights of parties to that pru
perky, ?nd to enforce payment of
obligations given for it, must follow |
the fate of the property itself, and all j
contracts based upon these laws be
The Judge further holds that tho
tenure by which this species of pro?
perty was held, was different from
that by which all other property is
held. It was not based, ho says, on
natural law ^ and the right of liberty j
was a pre-existing right which be- j
longed to the person held as u slave,
however much public policy and the
supposed interest of the country may
have prevented the enforcement of
that right by the person claiming it.
But when tho sovereign power of thc
State intervened to recognize and en?
force that right, it cannot be said
that tho property was destroyed by j
any fortuitous event.
He adds, that-Governments cannot
say a tract of land which is property
hythe laws of nature, shall no longer
be property, but that a slave, once
emancipated, eau, by no subsequent
act of the Government, bc legally
held as a slave. If this ruling pre?
vails throughout thc courts of the
South, notes or other obligations
given for slaves will be knocked into
a cocked hat.
ANOTHEB CHAKTTABLE ASSOCIATION
IN BAI/TOIOKE.-Tho ladies of Balti?
more never tire of doing good for
our suffering people, and each duy
brings forth fresh deeds in thc cause
of charity. We give below the pros?
pectus of an association just formed
i in that city to relievo some of the
suffering in the South:
In view of the continued and in?
creasing destitution at the South,
and in compliance wiLh requests both
at home and abroad, a number of
ladies in Baltimore have formed
themselves into an association, to bc
called "The Ladies' Depository."
Its object is to receive needle and
other work, and to dispose of it sole?
ly for thc benefit of its owners.
Orders will also bo received at the
depository for any kiud of work, so
as to provide employment for those
who have not the necessary materials.
As considerable expense will be in?
curred in providing a place of busi?
ness and the requisite assistants there,
and as the enterprise cannot, PI
course, be self-supporting, the Asso?
ciation must depend upon the contri
I butions of its friends. The annual
subscripci?n has been fixed at i?5, and
all who are favorably disposed are

\ < ?alveston Civilian, of the i3t.ii, has
J thc following announcement:
WV are indebted to a particular
i friend of this well known and l'aith
! fnl old dog, for the particulars of his
death and burial. Afie.ru long and
I eventful life, both iu and out of the
?army, he departed these ''mundane
shores" on the 4th day of February,
, LS(17. In consequence of the late
i order, prohibiting public demon
stations, the personal friends of the
deceased met privately at the Plant
ers House yesterday, at 1 o'clock p.
m., and interred him with military
honors, by tiring a salute of one
hundred Chin ese # fire-crackers over
his grave, lt is well known in this
community who "Old Tray" was,
but for the information of our dis?
tant readers, and those unacquainted
with the circumstances, we would
state that ho was an attache of Co.
B, Cook's Artillery, and served hon?
orably und faithftilly in the "Lost
Cause." He is now gone to that
bourne from which no traveler ere
returns. In plain English, we say,
"Peace to his ashes."
A VETO CERTAIN.-The President's
organ speaks out. Hear it:
"All this 'whereas' is Buncombe,
and the only tendency of it is to ir?
ritate. It is language that Andrew
Johnson can never sign with honor
and dignity to himself. Impeach?
ment would be preferable, and in the
end far more profitable to him."
Thus.it speaks of the preamble de?
claring the State govern ments illegal.

dared that the portraits of the found?

There are sixty-one men in the

Are^they willing to hold their own

to be slaves, and unfit for the high
duty of an American representative.
If tiny aro not, with what justice can

likely they are to arrive at the truth.
The attempt to coerce thc public
opinion of the South by test oaths
and punith elegislation, is anti-repub?
lican ain1. hostile lo the spirit of our
institutions. It shows a want of
faith in the truth and its inevitable
triumph that might become an advo?

The New York ^Beening of1
Saturday, the Kith inst., has the fol- j
lowing remark s on the spring lm.-;i- j
ness at that p ?int :
The mercantile business of this
city, with a large part of its general
trade, not brisk at any time within a I
month or two, has been considerably j
interrupted during th?' past week.
The usual timo for the opening of
thc spring wholesale business has
fully come; but merchants are not
very active. A few buyers iron; the
interior are herc. Many of them j
who were supplied with goods last
fall on credit, have not yet cancelled j
all their obligations, and besides ask?
ing extensions of time <m their old I
notes, desire further credits for pe
riods varying from throe to six j
months. Last vear there were com- I
parativclv large" sale- to thesi^nen, I
but a fall in the prices of some j
?.lasses of merchandize made their!
trade generally unprofitable. This j
explains their situation at thc present
But the dullness of business in its i
relation to the country trade is by no
means thc great feature of mercan?
tile and commercial affairs about j
which our business men feel solicit- ;
mle. The questious depending upon ;
the action of Congress affect all |
branches of trade, and some sort of |
settlement is earnestly desired. Our
great mercantile houses are reducing
their stocks as much as possible, and
many goods have been sold at prices
considerably less than the cost of
manufacture or importation. \\ iliiiu
the past two or three days, however,
then- bas been a firmer feeling, and
prices are not only maintained, but
show signs of advancing. Whether
or not the change will be permanent,
no one can tell.
Th-.- stoppage of woolen mills and
oilier manufactories is not regarded
by our merchants as in any true
sense, au indication of disaster, 'but
rather ns a result of stimulated pro?
duction above the legitimate require?
ments of trade. Some of the goods,
manufactured in too great quantity,
were hurriedly and carelessly pro?
duced, and are unsuited to the mar?
The fact which most accurately
shows the prevalent feeling of our
best informed merchants is this:
They are making preparation to do a
far smaller business this year than
last. The extent of the diminution
is estimated at one-third. So large a
proportion of the business of the
whole country entertain similar views,
aud are consequently curtailing their
operations, that tho danger of a dis?
astrous financial panic is thought to
be. materially lessened.

Gen. Whipple addressed a letter,
on the 9th instant, to the Mayor of
Borne, in relation to the gentlemen
who were arrested cu account of the
display of a Confederate flag at a
tableau, and who nave since been re?
it ased. He says:
In your letter, you state that no
disrespect was intended to the United
States Government by the exhibition
of the Confederate flag, and that the
"parties who displayed it" have ac?
cepted in good faith the present
status of affairs, and do acknowledge
the jurisdiction of the United States
If that is the case, it can only be
supposed, presuming that they pos?
sess ordinary intelligence, that they
misunderstood the present status ol
affairs, which is, that the rebellion
has boen described to be a huge
crime, embodying all the crimes o!
tho decalogue, and that it has beer
conquered and disarmed, and that its
very name and emblems are hatefn
to the people of the United States

puerile to answer, and unworthy o

the South, know well enough wi .a

matters, without waiting to be gnid

SELLING nv WEIGHT. -Tiie Agricul?

pointed a committee to petition the
Legislature to pass a law regulating
thc side of vegetables by weight. An
exchange remarks that there can be
no doubt that such a mode is fairer
for both buyer and seller. We have
no doubt that, it would be advan?
tageous to the buyer. Who can tell
when he gets a peck of beets, sweet
potatoes, and other long-tailed escu?
lents, which have, a trick of not
packing down very closely? It is
better to buy ami sell all such vege?
tables, and even fruits, by weight;
and then those buying potatoes,
apples, &c, by the barrel, would
know how much they paid for and
what the package contained; nor
would they be so frequently disap?
pointed, on opening them, in disco?
vering that they had bought "'a pig
in a poke.'' Could not the weighing
fashion be introduced here?

fore the Southern public for several
years, having been issued during thc
