MONDAY MARCH 18, tS72. The N>w Dispensation. Tt cannot t>o many ymn<' ,a" change shall take place in the )K>litical ?md - Hon of this country in its relation to parties, nhvsical developments sectional power. and J,,," security of privater rights. The present i- one Of violence and discontent incom }v?riMe with harmony, pence, and tlie highest mkvcv. The nation cannot stand this con dition. If it l>c not ended in the i>eaeeftil course of things it must end in comuWon . how and in what way we do not presume t<> shv, hut we only know thai, jsacefullj 01 convulsively, the present state of diseonten and outrageous inequality between the sec Iions must he revolutionized. Had General Grant had only a very httk wisdom, or had he i^scssed enough. -r'ft r titudc and good faith to have followed tin ?cnsible polievto which he had pledged bun wlf the present state of confusion, distrust, and'discontent, would have been nearly If not quite ernVd by this time; hut he had neither wisdom nor good faith. He discarded his own opinions and broke faith with his wisest, safest advisers, and took to his confidence and friendship the most unscrupulous and sordid men in the land. He repudiated his peace policy and proceeded to build ins ad ministration and his holies upon the bittel feuds of the country and the jicrseeutioii of the southern j>cople as a distrusted and refractoij race. He has emit rived through lit emissa ries and his ruthless part isms In Congress to keep the emlK-rs of strife alive, and to pro long the griefs of the South as well as to inflame the passions of the North; and now |,r j?s a candidate for reelection, and his chances rest entirely upon the maintenance of this state of national ill-nature and antago nism?this barbarous condition ot things. It he is reelected the restoration of harmony will he still further postponed, as it has alrradv hern hv his administration. Hut however postjioned, it should Ik- n MMinr of consolation to the nation to feel that it cannot he permanently withlield iroin us. There is in tlie steady growth of the power of the nation?in the expansion ol that |H?wer and its translation toa new area? quite enough to assure us of this. W?- all know that if power continues to reside lu that little space east of the Hudson ricci.and if the leaven with which it has leavened much of the section of the West continues to exert its full force, there ?tin he no libe rality, no fair dealing.no equality, among the Mates in this I'uion. We all know that in that en-e a great portion of this I'nioii will he continued in the state of humiliation ami oppression in wliieli it has been placed b\ la naiieism. combined with the kimery <?< sor did politicians and hearties pmisin-. Hut we have a i?erfe?'t eomietion that that little space east of the Hudson w ill not retain its power, and that the leaven which that lit tle spice has sent out to leaven the North west and West w ill be exhausted and cease to leaven the lump. We have this deep convic tion, which is the most pleasant thing in our hearts. We are deeply grateful to pro vi lli nee for it. And why have we this conviction? Pc - , iii'si we believe I lie young giant of the great West will be a stranger to the. bigotry and h\ pocrisv ?>f the ruthless power which has brought misery upon the nation?wretehed w -s upon the only laud which has in anj respect been "I!,b comparable to Paradise in our day. Why should this young giant ha\. any sympathy with Puritanism? Ilisgenius i- utterly opposed to the narrow, selfish, cold hearted principles and motives ol that source of greater crils to man than any other. He never would have been found cooperating with Puritanism had it not been for slavery. Jt was slavery that banded hi#1 with the cru saders against the South and put ail obstruc tion in the way of reconciliation in 1861, which forced war and all its blood and tears upon the nation. Hut the war is over, and slavery has been abolished. What, then, is left for the plat form for the young, and bright, and generous West to stand upon, with the unfeeling, ex acting. bigoted Puritan ? Nothing. As soon as ?he fog and poisonous miasm with which the running politicians have tilled the atmos phere have chared away the liberal and fair minded in all parts of this Union will tear themselves away from fanaticism and hypoc risy. Why should the power which rests in the strong anus and stout and generous hearts of a voung country fed the need of such trick and dissimulation and fraud as are in dispensable. to the rule of that people which is, by itself, in a dead minority in the land ? Were such auxiliaries congenial with the temper of the great body of the people oftlie West and middle States they would be repu diated as supererogatory. But there is no congeniality in these sections, which will soon take control of the national destiny, with these detestable agencies. The new dispensation is not far off. The new apportionment of representation shows that the sceptre is passing from the hands which so long have wielded it. The gieat question for fanaticism and hypocrisy is dead. There is no barrier between the Northwest and West and the South. Their trade and intercourse in every way is entirely recipro cal. They will live in harmony. The last ground of sectional alliance between the Northeast and the West is gone?washed away, uevcr to be restored; and the destiny of the nation is never more to bp vexed by it. Questions arising under the new situa tion will be settled upon the tiasisof the pul> lic interest, justiee, and equality. We shall have union, contentment, rapid develop ment, and constantly increasing national stiength, in place of persecution, sectional hate, discontent, and that weakness which arises from distrust and alienation of people from one another and from their Go\ em inent. This revolution?this happy chunge in the state of the Union und the relation of the sections towards one another--may not be as soon'as we anticipate, but it is assuredly coming. A little jvitiencc is all that is wanted to pass through the intervening period be tween the present time and the coming of one of the greatest blessings that ever fell upon a nation. Tb* personality between Senators Trum bull and ( handler on Friday was one of th(j .bitterest ol the session. The epithet of "slimy snakeapplied to Chandlkb was just, but would have been regarded in the North is very outrageous had it been uttered by a southern roan. There must be at the bottom of such manifestations a deal of malice. One can hardly think that such a breach could ho healed, and it would seem that two leaders thus idienated could hardly again cooperate iu jiarty matters. But these are.strange times, und the politicians of these days We not ,aft<?ir, the pattern of those of times past. We cannot see very far ahead with regard to any of thorn. = We must say, however, that we have a good deal of eonfi -deiicc in Sequtor Tk^muIix, and shall con finue to entertain it until ho disappoints nr..

And whenever our venerable n<iljrh bor the IVhi't revives the question of the fi.h culture, we hail it with pleasure. We would mil for the rod. the minnow-bucket, the sandwiches, and the- whatever else a true fisherman need* in an excursion to the ,pilot and secluded shores of a country stream or pond, there to talk about tisli culture while watching the float, a situation in which man thinks more and mentally tramcs more sound project* and good measures for the welfare and comfort of society than in any other we know of. Debarred from this latter ratification by circumstance* we cannot control, wc must, as well as the have a word u^m thb important theme. Wc know the present Legislature will do nothing for the culture of tisb ; but the only way to edueate people and representatives is to keep hammering away at useful mea sures. If our efforts don't succeed this year tliev mav the next or the year alter; and no matter when, it is the duty of the journalist never to despair, and to continue to labor m promoting the good of the community. The business of stocking streams and ponds with fish is one of the most important to sovietv ever undertaken. It has been con ducted so long and w ifb such signal success in Kuropc and at. the North that in advoca ting it here we arc not arguing in favor ol something that i< uncertain and to be tested by experiment. We have a work compara tively easy. One great difficulty is the igno rance that prevails here of the process. the meehanical appliances and the delicate art of j manipulating the tWiaml tin- eggs andtaking care of the young. Nobody in \ irgiuia until last year ever essayed to practice the art, and the commissioners then ap pointed had not only their own want ol j experience, but numerous obstacles, local and peculiar to the season, to overcome. The late Dr. Ham. (Dr. Wall bad pre viou.-ly resigned) succeeded in tran-fer ring from tiie Shenandoah to the James. Jackson's, Dan, and other rivers, a few of| the black bass, which it i- hoped may in a year or two begin to appear in liberal num bers in those streams. Hut the beginning, while not discouraging, was not extensive in its operations. When the Legislature re turns to the subject there may be something yet to show for them; but if there is not, we have volumes to prove the great advantages of fi<h culture in e\ery country where it has been prosecuted with tolerable skill and libe-j rality. >o perfect has become the system that pro fessional fish cultivators are prepared in season to supply spawn to bo transported with en tire suc<-ess. and to supply minnows in any .piantity at all times. The business is re duced to entire order, >o as to be earned on with a> much certainty as any other. The Whig quotes the veteran Setii rtni KN. of New York, who says that in a few veal's (J 17 rivers and lakes of that State will be .n completely stocked with fish that every body will be supplied with food and sport, other northern States will be in possession of the same public blessing?one that is j worth millions to a people. Let the people of y irgiuia think what a benefit it would bp to tliem if their streams were well filled with ehoioc fish. I hey would become an important part of subsist ence to the community, besides supplying re sourees for sport which, in their genial na ture and invaluable benefit in the way of mental recreation, cannot be too highly .11* ic subject D one worthy of the slates* , and the people should not forget it. know none other which promises more ml good, and which comes more directly i: to every house and fireside in the State.

The vote in the House of Rcprcsmatives on Friday declaring the land voted to the St. Croix and Lake Sujvrior Railroad Com pany as forfeited and reacquired l>v the (iov ernment so as to be open to entry to actual settlers, looks very like earnest ucss. If the Congress is really about reforming itself in the matter of misappropriation to private and corporate interests of the heritage of the na tion it is about doing a very good thing.

THE GAME LAW was considered and amended. Adjourned. Itclicl LanN and Lau.vers. All relief la\v>, so-culled, passed by the Le gislature since the war Ituve but increased the troubles and burdens of our people. They have been but delusions and snares, inus tnuch as they held out promises of relief that they were powerless to atford. The stay-law was a great curse t<? the debtor class. This was passed to prevent forced collections and enable debtors to pay olf their liabilities gra dually. When it came finally to an end, in January, 187i>, the result was that no one had paid his debts gradually, but the whole in debtedness of the country remained, greatly increased by the accumulation of interest du ring its existence. But for this law, the people, rendered kind and considerate one towards another by the calamities and common losses of a great war, would have compromised matters, and by this time the incubus of pri vate debt that now crushes the energies of our people would have been removed. It afforded no relief from the fact that those whom it was intended to benclit would not take advantage of the respite it gave them. This is the true reason why the stay-law failed to eflect the wonderful results expected of it. Notwithstanding this, the Baldwin Legisla ture, as it is called, and which, it is alleged, was composed of lawyers, is accused of pass ing it solely in the interest of the legal fra ternity. It is slid now that it was passed to increase litigation, and not for the relief of the debtor. This is a very unjust and heart ies."- charge against an honorable profession the members of which, as much as they are abused and denounced, are, as a class, generous and in sympathy with the peo ple. bo far as wc are individually concerned it would rejoice us to .see some equitable adjustment of all ante betlum contracts reached by the Legislature. But the question is, Can*such an adjustment be framed jnto a law that will stand the consti tutional test ? If it can, let us have it. If it ain't, it is folly to cheat u suffering people longer with deceptive bills of relief, bo far, all such measures passed by the Legislature have been pronounced by the courts uncon stitutional in their retrospective feature, as virtually annulling and violating the obliga tion of contracts. The courts which liave so decided may have erred, and may he reversed by the supreme tribunal, and the homestead and other relief lawa be allowed to stand. From the weight of authority, such a result is extremely doubtfbl. All urc agreed tbnt some relief from old debts ought to be afforded. hut the trouble if how to get it. It certainly does not help mutters to prnte about equity^ .and justice, hnd abuse, the courts and fcivvycffH for their hone*Uy-en tcrfuined views of law. Equity is law, us much as the law is law. Vet some jour nalists seem to entertain the Idea that it Is the very essence of equity to override all law, whether common, statute, or constitutional, and denounce the lawyers and courts as hide bound and oppressors of the people, because they do not adopt and enforce their jour nalistic ideas of equity. A judge is sworn to enforce the law, even if it result in hanging a man, much less in taking his property. It, then, he decide Hi accordance with his feel ings and contrary to his legal convictions, he is a perjurer. The judges who have pro nounced adversely to these popular laws have shown that they could boldly act in accordance with conscientious convictions of duty at the sacrifice of public favor and popularity, and should be honored as honest men rather than abused. Hut how are we to got relief from this burden of private debt? Mnce there is so much uncer tainty about the validity of relief bills passed bv our Hate Legislature, would it not be belter to bend all our energies toward se eming from Congress a bill extending the exemptions under the bankrupt act to the j amount of our present homestead exemjt-, tion, and let the oppressed debtors relieve themselves b\ bankruptcy ? This would give relief that is certain, and far more effectual than the homestead law. The bankrupt law would then give the debtor two thousand dollars and pay all his debts, whilst the home -tead law gives him no more, but leaves his debts to torment and annoy him.? Chrit (tansbuvg Messenger. 'flic State Debt. The J wo Houses of the Legislature have at last done something. On Thursday the Sen ate passed the House bill which directs the payment of four per cent, interest?two per cent. 1st of .January and two percent. 1st of July?upon the whole of the funded debt, and on two-thirds of the unfunded debt. This bill provides that persons receiving in terest under it shall be held to "acquiesce"; iu the repeal of the coupon clause of the funding bill. The .Senate just before they voted affirm atively on this bill pissed over the veto of Governor Walker the bill repealing the cou pon clause. Thus alter three month* of almost inces sant effort, we stun up a> the practical result: The funding bill of the oOtli of March, 1871, is intact, except that two jht cent, less inter est is to he paid per annum; and in addition, the receivahilily of the coupons for taxes as under that bill is abrogated in so far as it can lie by this Legislature. The Legislature apparently fell that the bill of Mr. Cochran, which undertook to di rect what should be received in payment of taxes. was in itself incomplete, and that it would nree-sMiiy full short of its aim. They therefore supplemented it. by the fourth sec tion of the interest bill, which provides that an acceptance of interest shall be held and deemed an acquiescence in the provisions of! Mr. Cochran's bill. Now, if all the holders j of new bonds were compelled by their ne cessities to take their interest-money, the fourth section being part of the law, it might be that the Legislature had actually repealed the coupon clause: bemuse an acceptance of interest, as a voluntary act of the holder el' flu* bond-, would of course be con strued an acceptance under and in pur suance of the terms of the act pro viding for the payment of the inte rest. and as siieli the bondholder would he estopped by his own act in at tempting to a-sert the reeeivabiliry of the coupons in the payment of taxes. Were this the only danger to Mr. Cochran's hill, it might pb?ibly stand. Hut tlie real difficulty is here : The holder of a bond refusing to receive interest, and standing upon the faith and perfect ness of his executed contract, by proper proceeding in our law courts, wiil test the constitutionality of the hill itself. If the coupon clause of the funding hill itself is constitutional, and we think it manifestly is,then tiieattempt by this Legislature to im pair the value of the tax-receivable coupon bond must necessarily be unconstitu tional, and if so, void and of no effect. When this conclusion is reached, we have the funding bill as it was in every particular save only we pay tour instead of six per cent. The needy are not the only holder* of bonds of the Hale, and before thi* Assembly rccon vcucs the ease will he made and decided by our highest court-, and we predict ju?t identi cally the result above indicated. An ignoble ending truly, after the upheaval we herein Rockingham went through. The State debt, even conceding that Mr. Cochran's hill be came a law, is not in any essential feature lessened, made smaller, or placed iu doubt. Those who a?ailed it before tho people and on the Jloorot the House,and denounced it as oppressive, burdensome, and not founded in justice, must stand abashed at the ridicu lous ending of all their wise scheming. Pos sibly now to them may come an awakening, and they will begin to see that repudiation lias at least some difficulties in its path. Why here in this county many of the peo ple were led to hope that, immediately upon the coining together of this reform Legisla ture the whole debt of the State would he wiped out in a jiffy; that a resolution or a buncombe speech would pay it. To our ear nest words they turned a deaf ear, and would not for a while believe that repudiation was either wrong or impossible. >7ovv that all the open advocates and marked abettors of this abominable heresy are humbled and dis eomtitted; now that the whole achievement ot this crusade of reform fools up an insignificant reduction of only two per cent, off the interest, vve take it that our readers will agree that we had grounds good and sufficient for the faith that was in us. We really, however, feel some surprise in limb ing that the action of this Legislature thus early has vindicated the entire soundness ot the views vve expressed and of the position vve assumed. We were very sure, though, that, ultimately they would be with us, for the truth will al ways vindicate itself iu the end. For the tir.-t and last time, vve hope, this mad policy has attempted to foist itself upon our Vir ginia legislation. It retired sullenly, how ever. and tired a retreating shot in the lower House in the shape of a debtor-relief bill. This was promptly dismissed by a vote of 06 ayes to IU noes. 3Ies-r.*. Douglas, Kristovv. and O'Ferrall opjxjsod the dismissal. Messrs. Brooke, Daniel, and others favored it.?Har rison l>urg (.'(miuumwealth. The lower House of the Virginia Legis lature has passed a resolution declaring that Virginia i* not ivponsible for and will not pay any part of the one-third of the Hate debt represented bv the certificates issued under the funding art and made convertible into bonds when a settlement had l>cen made with West Virginia. This is repudiation of that third, pure and simple. Our Conven tion has ignored the existence altogether of any obligation 011 the part of West Virginia to pay this one-third or any part of it. Is there a good understanding and concert of action between the repudiators at Richmond 1 and the repudiators at Charleston? It is an interesting question for the creditors.? li'.'u'cling Intclhgcn<rr.

Each State Is created a dis tinct department of the company, and the business placed under the management of a Iward of direc tors chosen from Its own citizens. The language of the charter is as follows: "Tin; Board of Directors In each department shall loan the money to l>c Invested In said department.'1 Section 51 aNo provides that "the 'net present value1 of the liabilities of the company under poli cies issued to members of each department, as fixed by the standard of valuation of the company, shall be invested, and kept Invested, within such depart ment." Of the wisdom and safety of the plan adopted hy the Association the Hon. Klizur Wright, of Boston, bears testimony as follows : "As the true theory of the reserve on any policy Is that it is a savings hank deposit, or self-insurance, applicable only to that particular policy itself, when it liecomes a claim, and only needs to have Its princi pal secure and its interest sufficient, It would not seem possible to have it Invested too near the local ity where that particular policy will become a claim.'1 To this feature of local representation and Invest ment the Association largely owes Its U N PARALLELED SUGG ESS. The only Company In the United States that gua aniees as a chartered right the principle of local Management ami local investments in each State. The only Company which, by Its charter, gives to ?ach Stare a representative In the HUME BOARD >E DIRECTORS. NON-FOB EDITING POLICIES. All policies are non-forfeiting after two payments arc made, when either a paid-up policy can lie se cured for au amount proportionate to the number of premiums paid, or the policy surrendered and ninety per cent, of its "net present value11 received In cash as provided by the charter. G. E. King, deputy superintendent of the Tnsur ice Department ot the State of Missouri, after a lorough personal investigation of the affairs of the ssociation (December 20, lS71.)says: " In conclusion. I desire to congratulate the officers id members of the Life Association of America pon its present highly prosperous condition, and l?on the high position the company Justly occupies nong the life assurauce organizations of this coun v.
