MONDAY JANUARY 31, 1870. Invitation to Capital. The new Constitution of Virginia offers ft strong inducement to capital to seek invest ment here. It authorizes " any rate of In 44 tercet not exceeding twelve per cent, per 44 annum which may be agreed upon by the 41 parties and be specified in the bond, note, 44 or other writing evidencing the debt." In the absence, however, of snch aeree mont, tho rate of interest is fixed at six per cent. No other State Constitution authorizes so great an interest upon money as twelve percent. Louisiana is next highest, and her limit is ten per cent. It happens for tunately for us that our merchants and citizens generally are now permitted by law to borrow at any rate up to that. Situ ated as they are they cannot make head way without money, and the premium upon it as shown in the transactions in the con trolling ir irkets in this country would place it beyond our roach at the old rate of 6 per cent. Indeed that limit has been practi cally dead ever since the war. Yet the transactions at higher rates have been, ac ^ cording to the letter, illicit, and tho rate charged was ordinarily increased by a sort of conventional rule that added insurance against risk of the plea of usury I The old law did more. It drove from the community of money-lenders men who were too conscientious to lend at usurious rates, and who, being unable to eliminate their means from the influence of prevail ing circumstances, were obliged to invest in speculation of some sort rather than lend, for they could not afford to lend at six per cent. Now, then, when money may be loaned legally at tho rates that prevail in the money-centres, we may confidently expect that capitalists will send in their means to be employed here, and at the same time much of our own capital that has been locked up for the reason stated will now be let loose. There are men who have fine property that cannot be sold now Bave at a great sac rifice. They are active and enterprising, and would borrow money at high rates, giving mortgages upon their property. Loans of this kind would be entirely safe, and should bo agreeable to capitalists. At the same time in the hands of the right men?and we believe there is a vast com munity of such men in Virginia?money borrowed in this way may be used success fully, securing individual thrift and contri buting to the general prosperity. The liberal feature in our Constitution on this subject should most assuredly intro duce a large aggregate capital into Vir ginia. The Franking Privilege. The bill that has passed the House of Representatives by so large a majority, it seems to be gonerally believed, will be as signally defeated in the Senate as it tri umphed in the House. This may be quite strange to one who knows nothing of the springs behind the congressional scones. The members of the House are more imme diately responsible to public opinion, and arc put on trial three times as often as the senators. They cannot afford to risk thoir popularity by an act openly defiant of pub lie ni'lnion, and in caaea iiP.rRnnnlljr ?*??? resting to themselves they can affect to dis regard their own wishes, relying upon the Senate to protect them ! Wc do not mean to intimate that the Senate is a never-fail ing protector in this wise, but assuredly it has so often given assurance in this matter that the House is pretty Bafe f Great would be the disappointment of that body, how ever, if the Senate should now pass this sweeping bill, an event whioh we can hardly hope for. The House took a fling at the editors by abolishing their privilege of receiving their exchanges without postage. The gontle hcartcd Butler evidently chuckled over this. Well, for one, we 6ay let them abolish this privilege. We would gladly pay post age on our exchanges to put an end to a great abuse like that of the franking privilege. The editors would get along without it, and get along well, too. The reform would very much relieve the mails and editors. We are for putting a stop in every way to the free use of the mails and for pre-payment for everything that is sent by mail. .A law for that purpose cannot pass too Boon. But tlioso who desire such an act must remomber that, however willing Congress may bo to cut down the privileges of other people, they have been steadily increasing theirs in a variety of forms ever since the post-revolutionary generation,when honesty and economy prevailed in the administra tion of public affairs. Washington letter-writers are awarding the position of leader of the House to Mr. Haives, of Massachusetts. Butler has pretended to the position, and had several sharp bouts with men whom he thought stood in his way. Mr. Dawes had not ap peared prominently, observing that dignit\ nn 1 decorum which generally characterizes well-balanced men^nd Mr. Butler did-not oock his oyo at him. Circumstances at last brought them in conflict, and it was seen at once how the pure gold of digDity and ability shone above the brass and impu dence of cunning and trickery. Whether Dawes is to be leader in the House or not, he has settled Butler's hash, and given him that kick that detaches his hold, and sends him headlong down tho fatal cliff. The Enquirer publishes in parallel columns several extracts from an editorial in the Whig of Friday, and several from one in the Dispatch of the eamo day. We are obliged to the Enquirer for affording ua so good a reason for stating as to the editorial in this paper that only the first paragraph of it was written by us. The remainder of it was, after the writer had left the office, brought into the counting room by one or more distinguished lawyers, and, having so honorable a paternity, was, I under, orders from thai room, tacked on to our little, paragraph, which, as its lan- j guage shows, was intended only to be a eulogy of Mr. Marye. And whilst upon the subject we jrrill add that as we did not write the article we do j not consider ourselves bound to j the soundness of the propositions therein j laid down. Representative Platt, of Virginia, has j the names of the following parties to present for addition to the House bill now -? ? ... y. . ( , K_2*. ^TTIT? >7- ' ""?

Hayti?Negro Governments. * The news already given to our readers has informed them of the death of Sal I nave. Ho was defeated, and captured in j an attempt to escape, and was shot beenuse, j among other things, he had " annulled the i Constitution! " The idea! Haytien sa vages talking about a constitution when tb American Republio docs not respect sue ! an Instrument! Salnave hod beon a turbulent spirit. He had brought many to execution, and ho only followed in liko manner the large army he had sent before their time to their long account. He was shot on the 10th of January, after a short trial. The Presi dent of the court-martial said to him after his sentence, " You have just been con " demned to the pain of death ; I entreat "you to be firm and courageous." To which Salnave replied, " I shall not fail.' He had a short time allowed him to write a letter. He was then tied to a post, and the signal for shooting him was giTon by General Canal thus: " You are going to " be arraigned as a traitor. Vive la Consti tution I " The "deadly volley," as the reporters call it, was fired, the populace of tatterdemalion Haytiens taking up the cry of " Vive la Constitution," which they understood about as well as the parrots of their island who can pronounce the same words. Thus ends Salnave, and Nissage Saget succeeds him, and will probably follow him to Hades in duo time. The New York Tribune, which is a very able paper and in many respects excellent, is yet afflicted with several tumors that have grown to bo large and troublesome to itself as well as its readers. One of them is its ultra democracy, and another is its enthusiasm about the African races. For merly Whig and Federal, it is with refer ence to all other governments* and in this country with reference to the negro, demo cratic to the extrome. It enjoys a row in other lands?any resistance to authority? with as much delight as a child would re gard Punch and Judy. And it has watched the negro Governments of the W?e3t Indies with tho deepest anxiety. Hardly a day passes, however, without some strange ca per amongst the West India pets that throws the Tribune into a distress equalled only by the trouble of tho motherly hen whose brood of young ducks has taken to the water. The Tribune deplores the shooting of Salnave. It hopes better things, but is afraid Saget will meet a similar fate. It speaks of there being "Democrats" in Hayti and " the blue fire of ultra-southern Democracy," and wastes this fine sentence upon the Hayticns: " The shot which struck "Salnave is a deadly note, awaking fcar "ful echoes from the past history of the "republican struggle in the IndieB and " South America!" The hen is deeply dis tressed about the young ducks. What is all this worth? Nothing. Can the Tribune tame leviathan ? Can it make docile the tiger so that it will be the gentle coinpan i ion of man and harmlessly sleep at his feet ? Can it cause the Ethiopian to change his Bkin or the leopard his spots ? It is time the Tribune had become practical and learned to call these llayticns and their no;ekW?. tw* ;?.?/"???? T1>ojj are nothing else. They slaughtered their mas ters, and, being unable to govern them selves, are now living in idleness and filth and slaughtering one another. The Tribune sees a hostile influence peeping out in the last moments of the black drama of Sylvan* Salnave ; and that hostility, Booth to say, is against tliia country! Salnave?and the Tribune begs the admirers of our San Domingo bargain to take notice?" was captured by General "Cabkal and his Dominicans." "There "is, therefore," it says, "a well-under " stood and earnest alliance between the " party opposing the annexation of San " Domingo and the successful rcvolution " ists, whom, it is declared, our Govern " ment opposed by aiding Salnave." TheBe two may end the reign of Baek, with whom we have treated, and attempt to annul our bargain. That would be terrible. What stuff 1 What should we care about the riff-raff of these islands ? to pretend to anything regular and mutually binding I with savages who are themselves without reason or law? If wre want to take the islands and restore order, we have strength to do it, and, for the sake of humanity, it would be the best act performed by this nation for a long time to do that thing. Li that is not our object, why, let them alone, and let them go on abusing and misusing a fair heritage of mankind and killing one another. The barbarities 'and internal strife of these people ought not only to have long since ceased to surprise the Tribune, but should have inducod it to give them up as beyond hope. Lopez is not yet taken, but the Count D'Eu still hopes to take him. He is as in vincible in his hopes as is Lopez in his re sistance. Poor Paraguay has a hard time; but it has certainly made a fame for itself. It is entitled to the respect if not the sym pathy of nations. Such resistance as it has opposed to the allies who came to crush it giveB its people a claim to high considera tion for love of country and for those high national virtues, fortitude and constancy. As long as Lopez is not taken and, accord ing to oustom in South America, put to death, we cannot be certain that the war is ended and Paraguay entirely conquered. The war has been a disgraceful one to the great alliance against the little Paraguayan State. So disgracefully prolonged against an enemy 60 inferior in means and num bers that the wonder is the invaders had not long since become ashamed and gone home. ???=====: We have received from Messrs.

Decrepitude Is the natural accompaniment of old age, but It may be ameliorated, and the period of entire helplessness long postponed by the Judi cious use of a healthful stimulant. Physicians, fully aware of this fret, usually recommend mode rate stimulation when the strength and vigor of maturity have been suspended by the feebleness and prostration which arc the Inevitable results of declining years. Port wine, gin, brandy, and other liquors, are often prescribed bv medical men for aged persons, but the Impulse which ferment ed and distilled liquors give to the circulation, and the energy tliey seem to Impart, Is transitory, un less the alcoholic principle is modified and quuli fled by the presence of medicinal tonics and ln vlirorants. ?'f all the combinations of diffusive stimuli with the juices of herbs, roots, and barks.
