The Bankrupt Bill, after having passed the Senate, and being at its last stage in the House of Itrprcsentalivcs, was yesterday laid on the table by a very small majority ’l here is so little chance "fits being called up again at this period of the session, that it may be considered as lost. It is not to be inferred from this result, however, that there is a disinclination in the house to a proper measure of this kind. The fact is otherwise ; and we consider the pass ing of the bill by the Senate and the several decisions respecting it in the house us in. dicating almost u certainty that at the next session a bankrupt law will be enacted by a large majority There are many who approve of an act of this kind, but who object to that part of the principle of the Senate’s bill which limits its operation to merchants and traders; and there are others who object a'so to some of the de tails. Hut, the lateness of the hour at which the bill came to the house did nut permit any alteration in these particulars The qnestioiii was whether the bill should be taken as it wasj or deferred until there should be time at least i for perfecting it. And when it is consider. cd how desirable it is that a law which is to have so important a bearing upon ike communi ty should receive the deliberate and thorough examination of the popular branch of the le gislature. there is undoubtedly strong ground for the delay. * The suffering which this delay will pro duce is ir.deced most sincerely to be regretted, hid, the thousands who have for so many years looked forward to this measure almost without hope, may find some consolation m suffering a little lunger, with the bright pros* put oj relief which now opens to their view. |Georgetown Mess.
