More About the Stay tmvr*
1 hope that you will allow me t6 present
a few thoughts to your readers concerning
the stay law. I notice in almost every
number of your paper men's opinions and
advice concerning that law, and m jre par
ticularly in th6 number of the 26th nit., 1
see quite a lengthy article written on that
subject. The gentleman did not tell bis
whereabouts, but' that makes no''kind of
difference. He must be ^ man in Very
moderate circumstances; he says he is
neither a paper-shaver, nor a money-lend
er, nor a merchant. But the gentleman
seems to bd very mucb concerned about tb?
merchants, and inquires how they are to
pay their debts and replenish'their stocks.
We will not stop here to mysiify what he
bas said on the subject. I differ wi*h him,
and believe in the extension of tbe stay
law for different reasons, someof which I
will givo you. I bavea little property,and
I owe a little, and there is a little owing to
me. And this is not all; I am tho husband
of a rery delicate woman and the father
of six helpless children, none cf whom I
have seen for months, and I do lot know
when I will. I was one amongst the first
volunteers of West Virginia to meet trea
son, and have for eighteen monthsendured
all tbe toils and the hardships ot asoldier's
life ; and there are others who have left
the comforts of homo and a frienlly fire
side to meet the foe that bas thieatened
our destruction, and if there is not some
thing in the way to prevent th? sale of
property, their families will be turned out
to the mercy of a people who have almost
forgotten all tho good morals that used to
afford security to person and property. I
submit to the better judgment of cur West

The Right ot Suffrage.
Editor* Intelligencer :
A well written commonication appeared
in the Press of the 27th tilt., ad-ireised to
the members of the General Assembly, re
monstrating against the passage of a bill,
which, the writer describes aB a "Bill dis
qualifying certain persona from ezercisiog
ibe right of suffrage."
I imagine tbe writer has not read* tbe
bill. My reasons for this supposition are:
First, That he appears to be an intelligent
writer; and Second. That no intelligent
tua cftmii<i-e?ntloman, ?i?o q<tote$: the
Constitution and legal authorities, and
idopts a Latin signature, wo^lti.iot*atj3a<
*lly misdescribe a bill for tbe purpose of
The bill says not a word about the right
af suffrage, or the qualification of voters.
It attaints no one; it is not ezpost facto in
terms or in spirit; nor does it deprive or
seek to deprive any man of his rights and
It proposes to amend the third chapter
of the Code, and to uae the language of
'?Unus Populi," tbe writer, "simply defines
who are citizcns of this State, what enti
tles such persons to citizenship, and how
iuch citizenship may be relinquishedAnd
in express terms, on its face, is prospective,
not*retrospective,declaring how a man may,
after Ibe passage of tbe bill, relinquish his
citizenship and expatriate himself. This is
the whole of it, and if it is unconstitution
al, so is the law in the Code, which was
passed many years before the rebellion,
and its constiutiouality never questioned.
. Stripped of legal, and perhaps necessary
verbiage, tbe bill Bubstentially declares,
that a man may relinquish bis citizenship
by renouncing in open court his alUgiance
to tbe State?by removing and becoming a
citizen of another State?by professing alle
giance to another State or Government?
by levyiog war against the State, or the
United States, or by adhering to their ene
mies, or giving^tbem aid or comfort. He
may expatriate himself by either of these
modes. It is not the law, but his own vol
untary act which disfranchises him. Where
is the hardship?. Where the wrong7 A
man cannot at oue and the same time be a
loyal citizen of two distinct and separate
lovereignties^or Governments. He must
cease to bo a citizen of one before be can
becomo a citizen of the other. This liw
leaves it to his own election.
True, all who continue in hostile rebel

franchise themselves. It that the'fault of

did Christmas present in the shape of a
snmptuous dinner (prepared in a manner
seldom equalled and never surpassed) from
the noble and patriotic Ladies of Centra]
Station and vicinity. Therefore be i
Resolved, That we feel proud of the hon
or thus conferred upon us, the more, from
tbe fact*-that having been stationed in their
immediate vicinity for the past fifteen
months, tbey have had an opportunity of
observing our acts, both civil and military,
and for such a testimonial from such a
source, we feel that we have just cause to
Ilesolved, That while engaged in the ser
vice of our country, the remembrance of
this token of their ? confidence and esteem
shall cheer us In our despondency and
strengthen our hearts in the hour of dan
ger; and that it shall be our constant en
deavor to prove ourselves worthy of the
respect and confidence of those ladies who
have thus expressed their approval of our
past military life.
lletoled, Tbat wo aball ever remember
with pleasure the time in wbicb it was our
good fortune to be stationed io tbeir vi
cinity, and the mauv favors and aols of
kindness we received from their bands.
Rfolvtd, Tbat as those ladies hive
shown suqb a kind regard and high esteem,
wo ever stand true to our posts, as brave
and patriotic soldiers, and protect them
with our lives.
Ktiolvtd, That we will never, by any act,
forfeit tbo esteem of those ladies who have
shown tbeir approbation of our past mili
tary life in such unmistakable terms; but
that it sball ever be our chief aim io life to
prove ourselves worthy of their esteem.
Jtiaolvcd, Tbat we appreciate the kind
ness that actuated the hearts of the donors
of the dalioacies and luxuries to the sol
diers, and may we ever prove worthy of the
confidence of the ladies, whose generous
hearts and noble nature is always ready to
administer to the wants of the soldier.
Retolved, That a copy of the above be
signed and forwarded to the ladies of Cen
