H," and dating his letter from Davenport, is very severe on that claaa of our business men who loan money at just such rates of interest aa the borrower will pay. The writer is comet in seme of his po ai lions, but in others he is entirely wrong. We transfer some portions of the article to our eolu ins: Tbe plea of uaury ia aaa afa tlau eraated from the ju?t necessities of society, an in ac cordance with sound public policy. The plea of in fancy by minors, of the prohibitory liquor law tiy venders of intoxicating drinks, of carer ture by married womeD, of e statute of loni tiition* by debtors, a discharge by the general bankrupt law by insolvents, of illegal consider ation by parties to prohibited contracts, the ant of protest by indor*ers to notes,—all of these, and more, are especially encouraged by the law, from motives of a sound public pol.cv. Ar.d why is it more reprehensible to plead usury than any of the above pleas? What effect upon society results from a general en couragement ntd protection to the usurer V Certainly the most disastrous. Moneyed m^n, brokers, and shavers have it in their power, under the evils of the credit system, by sudden expansions and contractions, to throw the bu siness community into the worst possible dis may and disorder. After a season of liberal lendirg, they can suddenly unite and stop loans and discounts, and advance the rates ot inter eat enormously, so that ruin stares the borrow er in the face, whether he borrow at the rates demanded or refuse. Ruin i* before him in either event—whether by sudden bankruptcy, or by a slow process of tucking his capital in*o the plirse of the usurer in heavy installments by w4y of interest. Thus men who had rather die than fail, protract their businees existence by a slow process of torture, and fail at last, victims to tbe insatiable demands of usurers. The different pleas enumerated above are all sanctioned by law,but the person taking advan tage of them breaks a contract made in good faith. He is protected by the law, but ha has sacrificed bis honor. If the merchant, to save himself from ruin, sees fit to borrow money at ruinous rates of interest, ha should so with tbe full expectation of paying the principal and interest, let it be ever so mueh He ia in honor bound to fulfil his coLtract if he has the means so to do, and entering the plea of usury will not assist him if he haa not the means. The writer further saya: Tbe only mistake made by our legislature ia that the law is net more stringent. There should be a forfeiture of all the rate of interest contracted, and a further aaaeaament upon the lendrr of ten per cent, upon the principal for tha school fund, inatead of the preaent way of aa aeaeing ten per cent, of the amount against tha borrower. Now, wa think there ia a much batter way to cheapen tha price of money. Do away with all lawa that stand between tha creditor and debtor, and wa will very aooa nave into rest brought down to a low rata. Experience has satiafaotorily demoasti ated that all laws made for tha benefit of tha debtor to the Inju ry of tha creditor, will ba rare to work to tha disadvantage of the former.

Our reason for thinkinc *o we have already stated. We hold that a contract made in £ood faith should be rigidly adhered to, and no advantage should be taken of a la which wrongs one party,while it does not mate tially benefit the other. We think our usury laws a curte, and we shall advocate their total repeal by our legislature. The parliament of Great Britain has, within the past 12 months, repealed all the usury laws heretofore in force in that Kingdom, and English writers aie al most unanimous in their approval of this act, as it has already materially lowered the rate of interest, and money can be obtained with much greater ease than before. We do not wish to be understood as apologizing for jsurers, for we think they are the ruin of out country but we do say, that if they have lent a citizen money at a higher rate of interest than ia lawful, that citizen is at fault, as much aa the usurer and he ahould fulfil hia contract without flinching. Do way with tl.e usury laws, and wa will aoon have plenty of money at a cheap rata of inter est. O E I I I A Davenport Market. WEEKLY REVIEW.

WMUXOTOM, Dec. 6 —Hovsa—Mr. Kilgore, of lad., explained and was understood to aay he condemned as strongly as the gentleman from Misaou ri possibly could, the avowal of af aaeh sentiments. He had never aeen tha recommendations to scatter. His name, how avor, appeared to a proposition to publish and circulate a pamphlet containing matters taken from Helper 's book, together with the remarks Bade by gentlemen on slavery. Mr, Clark: I am glad the genleman feels the wrath to come.'' [Laughter, Mr. Kilgore: I am ready to take the re sponsibility." "r* Ferns worth We can act understand ing^ if the gentleman will have the book read here." Mr. Clark I have the book." Mr. Farnsworth: "I do .'t believe tha gen tleman has read it. I recommend tbe litera tare. I have no doubt the book is a good one." Mr Clark, resuming, felt it to be his duty to aay If this Government is to be prostituted and men placed in a position holding such sentiments, the people ought to know to what a humiliating position it has come. The chair they were now about to fill had been occupied by Clay, Barbour. Cook, Winthrop, gentlemen who had a beacon light from the sources of the constitution, who had elevated self-respect, and who would not advise treason, murder and dissolution. He said that he bad that circular in reference to the circulation of the pamphlet before him." Mr. Clark "B: Cochrane interrupting ut terly condemned such sentiments as those which the gentleman from Missouri had re peated Mr. Palmer said, "let us have free discussion. Our friends on the other side have thrust the negro before tbe (louse. We may as'well finish tbe discussion, and then turn him out as quick as possible. Mr. Clark replied "that the negroe never would have been thrust upon th- House, but for the action of the gentleman's party, and for the alvice the gentleman hsd given. If the gentlemen made themselves the equals of tbe negro, the effect would be to drive another class of the lloue on the first day of tbe aess« ion." Mr. Kellogg rerrarked, "that the gentleman from Missouri had made a statement that Res publican members had direc ly or indirectly aanc:ioned certain things in Helper's book. His name appeared iu some of the papers aa having recommended it.'' Mr Ciark—No doabt you signed it. [Laugh ter Mr. Kelioge—I am not prepared to aay whether I signed it or not, because the author ity of tin- N. Y. Il'rald is not good. Mr. Clark—Nor any other good paper. Mr. Kellogg—The sentiments are not enter tained by the Republicans. I am willing that the Gent should assume or disavow. If I have signed the paper wrongfully, I would avoid it. I want the Gent to state what is in the Co-i-pendinm. There was much nr ise and confusion through out. The Compendium and the speakers were but imperfectly heard. Mr. Clark was prepared to show what waa in the book, if the Gents were prepared to be placed on tha anxious seat. Without furtner proceedings tbe Hooae ad* journed, Election.

F. Clark 1. No one havint received a majority of the votes cast, Mr. Grow rose and aaid: "Aa 1 desire in no way to retard the organization of tbe House. I withdraw my name as a candi date. I assure those gentlemen who in kind ness cast their votes for me, that I shall treat* ure through life so distinguished a mark of their friendship and regard." Mr. Burnett moved an adjournment, ta fee determined by yeas and nays. Mr. Clark, of Mo., wanted to make some remarks in favor of an adjournment after an other vote. [Crie- of "Go on Mr Burnett objected to this proeaediog, sav ing there wa» no question before the House.— He subsequently withdrew his objection, which was renewed by Mr. Washburne, of III. The Clerk said he would submit tbe question whether Mr. Ciark should have liberty to pro ceed. Mr. Garnet contended there was no power here to preclude a debate, and said that the gentleman bad a right to show that there were some nominees for Speaker who should not be elected. Mr Ciaik insisted that the House could not deprive him cf his constitutional right to make remarks as to the qualifications of those nomi nated for Speaker. i he Clerk re. lied that he should not take upon himself the responsibility to decide the question, but would submit it to the Houae. Mr Clark, earnestly, I claim the right as an individual member to speak. 1 deny tha pow er of the House to deprive me of that gbt. 1 decide for myself. (Criea of "Go on." "Go on." "Good." Mr. Curtis—What part of the constitution do you refer to If you have that right, I have it also. (Cries thick and fast, "Call tbe roll.") Mr. Clark—I deny the right to call 'the rol«, for I have the floor. (Ciies of "Question," "Question," from the Republican side.) Mr. kill.'ore presumed this matter could be tettled. Tbe Republicans would content to an adjournment after another vote. (Here the cries of "Que-tioii" were renewed.) Mr. Clark withdrew bis application to make remarks, and offered the following: WHEREAS Certain members of this House, now in nomination for Speak-r, did endorse and recommend the book hereinafter named, therefore, Ht/utived, T^at the doctrines and sentiments of a certain book called "The Impendit Crisis of the South, and how to Meet it," purporting to have been written by 11. Helper, are in cendiary and hostile to the domestic peace ai trai quiiitv of the country,and that no member of this House wbo recommended or endorsed it or the "Compend," is fit to be Speaker of the House. Tbe reading of tbe resolution occasioned ap plause from some of the northern men, by slap ping their hands. Mr. Stevens, of Pa., said it seemed to him that in the present condition of tbe House but two things were in order, one a motion to ad journ and the other to proceed to a vote. Mr. Clark continued by saying, "In view of a crisis of tbe country, and representing as he did a slave-holding constituency be would." Mr. Washburn, of Me., called him to order Mr Clark continued, saying, "we have had three wars since the Declaration of Independ enee, and have grown from a weak state to a great confederacy, challenging the admiration of the civilized world." Mr. Stanton interrupted, saying, he appre hended nobody wished to stay here if the ob ject was not to save time, but he saw no good: in remaining here, as he knew the gentlemen on the other side could consume the day. Mr. Clark "My purpose ia higher man that" Criea from the Damoeratie side, "Good." Good." Let's adjourn." Mr. Clark waa willing to give way for thai purpose. Mr. Stanton thought this lloe of discassloo ould be much more appropriate and better managed, if the House were organized by the election of a presiding officer. Mr. Washburn,of Me., arose to a question,bat Mr. Clark proposed to go on with hie reaaarks, unleaa some gentleman wished to move to ad journ. Mr. Stevena "I hope the House will not ad journ. Theee things must come oat." voice "You're right. Mr. Stanton—I see no good ta be accom plished by remaining here, unUsa we proceed to vote. I take upon myself the rcspcnsibility to move that the House adjourn. Negatived by two majoritv. Mr. Yailaadiagham remarked that aome Dcmoerata were absent. Three of them might be here to-morrow Therefore he voted aye, Mr. Clark resumed, bat in a tone not alto gether audible. He wished to show why tba resolafoa ought ta pass and to preecat to tha American people the position eertaia gcatle •en occupied aa regards tbe Speakership.— Heretofore tbe people were divided aa Demo crata and Whigs There we e eoasorvalive nod fraternal feciiage.
