ASTORIA. Dec 27, 1S73
The ability of nearly every man
to pay his debts, depends upon his
ability to collect debts due him.
Hie individuals of a community are
linked together by a chain of debts
and credits and in time of depression
the refusal of a person to discharge a
single liability ,,often embarrasses a
line of a dozen debtors and creditors.
Hence the prompt payment of small
debts becomes, in times like these,
a public as well as a -private duty.
The same money that pays a debt in
the morning may pay a dozen before
dark, and twelve men are thus re
lieved of anxiety and pressure by
this payment of one obligation.
The Aldine for Dedember is es
juxcially rich in the number and
quality of its illustrations several of
which are remarkable as productions
of art. Among the most striking are
Christmas in the Fields, Old Friends,
.Behold Yon Towers, The Love To
ken, Training Terriers and Ilaidie.
The letter press of the present num
oer is more than usually attractive.
The Statement published that
here was not one United States na
val vessel at Havana, is accounted
for bv the fact that it was a part of
i he arrangement between Secretary
Fish and the Spanish Minister, that
there should be no show of menace
whatever on our part which would
increase the excitement at Havana
and elsewhere in Cuba, while the
plan of release was intended to be
effected in the quietest manner pos
