The Norfolk Post enntains the following singular letter : MORSHEAD Cirr, January 5; 1866. Editor Norfolk Post : Stn : T have ju-tt arrived in this place from-, where I saw and talked with John Wilkes Booth, the supposed assassin of your lat? President. That be would bv alive after what had occurred at your capi tal may seem strange, but it-is true never theless. I saw him and B. Harris, who left with him not four weeks ago, and learned from bim all the hardships that be underwent in leaving this country.- Ho say? that no one who has the lea*t regard for truth will say that he wan in Fords Theater on the 14th of April last, and wonders why no one pres ent on that occasion did not - pretend to re cognize the man that shot Lincoln until thpy were told tliat it ww bim by Lory Keen, his bitter enemy. He did not, however, te me deny or admit that he had done the deed ; but stated that BO one could truthfully say, of their own knowledge, that it was him. He declares that Mri. Surratt was inno cent, and wonders how tb? man that was killed in the barn looked. He loamed from tbepapers that be had a heavy beard, aad bad sheared or cut it in such an awkward roannertbaS hrs (Booth's) most intimate friends would not recognize Booth. He thinks nor. He belioved. innocent or guilty, that* if found he would have been sacrificed to to their mad fury, and concluded to leave, which be di'i. And as there can now be no harm in telling, I will state what he told me -omitting names. He croase 3 tho river at Georgetown ; stop ped the nexi day near Fairfax Court-house; the next night be was taken near Middle' burg, &c, and from there near Gum Springs, where he rwnained two days ; and after more' than three weeks traveling-mostly by night and suffering severely-be reseed Florida^ where he was detained for some time, until Harris, who was not mentioned in the affair, and who could not appear publicly, procured' a boat, which they ventured to sea iny and made land sa fe. Booth was immediately ta ken sick, and has boen the most of the time since. . ?-' In October he was mel better, so much "so tait he took some exercise in the open air bat relapsed and was confioed to bis room until about four weeks ago.' His constitu tion, in my judgment, is mined, - and I don't believe be indi live long. He was preparing for a change of climate, and if no relapse bas taken place, is probably now ia another country, where be will meet with . moro of bis own people, or people from the same country.

The following is the substance of a con versation which took place to-day between the President and a distinguished Senator : The President said that he doubted the propriety, at this time, of making any fur ther amendments to the Constitution, One great amendment had already beea made, by which slavery had forever been abolished within the limits of the United States, and a national guaranty thus .given that that in stitution should never a^ain exist in the land. Propositions to amend the Constitution were becoming as numerous as preambles and resolutions at town meetings called to consider the most ordinary questions connec ted with the administration of local affairs. All this, in his opinion, had a tendency to diminish the dignity and prestige attached to the Constitution of the country, and to lessen the respect and confidence of the peo ple in their greut charter of freedom. If, however, amendments, ore to be made to the Constitution, changing the basia .of representation and taxation (and he did not deem them at all necessary s.t the present time), he knew of none better than asimplo proposition, embraced in a few lines, making in each State thenumber-of qualified voters the basia of representation, and the value of property the basis of direct taxation. Such a proposition could be embraced;in the fol lowing terms: Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States which may lae included in this Union, according to the number of qual ified voters in each State. Direct taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within the Union, according to the value of all taxable property in each State. An amendment of this kind would, in his opinion, place tho basis of representation and direct taxation upon correct principles. The qualified voters were, for the most part, mon who were subject to draft and enlist mont when it was necessary to rep^l invasion, suppress rebellion, and quell domestic vio lence and insurrection. They risk their lives, shed lhair blood, and peril their all to uphold the Government, ?nd give protection, security and value to proper ty. It seemed but just that property should ctaupensate for tbe benefits timi: onferred by defraying the expenses incident to its pro tection and enjrtymeut. Such an amendment the President sW suggested would remove from Congres* all issues in reference to tbe political equality af the races. It would leave ihe State to leterrcine absolutely the qualifications of Lheir own voters with regard to color, and :hua the number of Representatives to which' :hcy would be entitled in Congress would" lepe?d upon tlie number upon which they jonferred Ihn right of suffrage. The Pr?sidant, ia this connection, express :d the opiniou that the agitation of tbe ne ;ro franchise question in the District of IDo umbia nt tLis time was the mero "entering redge ia. the agitation of the question hrougbont the States, and wits ill-timed, incalied for and calculated to do great harm. He believed ?bat it would engender enmi y, contention and strife "between* the two aces, aud lead to a warbetween them, which rottld result in great injury to-hotb, ?nd the ortain extermination of the negro population. Precedence, be thought, should ? be given. 5 moro important and urgent matter?, logis itio? apon which was essential fdr the re lation of the Union) tho'peace of tho couii ry and the prosperity of tbe people. 63*" Tho Military Commission appointed to ivestigato tho charges against F. <}. -Sto-war?, of ?nigla/?nd Elisha W.

This ."doctrine is well recogoiied in ibis State, in Finley vs. E?ntor, 2 Strob. Eq. Ttt?p., 215. Other cases might be cttod and Eb me'ntal woiks quoted on this point, but the de cisi?n from our o^in Reports is deemed sufficient' for tho purpose ot this communication. Remedial Statutes aro in general inipndod to remedy som? defects in ibo common law ; and aro tuencontra distirigataked from decfaratory Statuier, which doclaro whft fho-commdn law is ; or rainedy some dorectsyoT lr?'T?ships tn tho penal codo, and aro then 'mentioned, in contradistinction to Penni Statutcf.-^Biac. Cern. Vol.' p. 50. By rec. 10, Art! J, Const. TJ..S. A., it ia ordain:d, among other thing,*, that "no State shnll pess any Bill of attainder, expott fneto law, cr law impairing tho obligation of contrae ti, Ac." From thc proceeding statement* and authorUic, thp following propositions ara established : First, That the operation of every Statute must bo pro spective, unless lt. be remedial. Sec?n Hy, That remedial Statutea'can^ only havo ?x retrospective effect, whoa they do not impair tho obligation of j contracts, or disturb vested rights. Thirdly, That remedial Statut A are understocd as only remedy ing -some.dtfects in tho common low, or mitiga ting, ibo: rigor of the Penal Code. Fourthly, T>*t no State can pa? a law" impairing tho obli gation of contracts. Thc question we propose to examino briefly in this communication, is the Constitutionality of tho Stay Law, and Us effect upon thc'contracts of individuals. j A contract may ho defined to bo an agreement betTT'cen-parties by which one of them undertakes to do, or not'to do, a partioular thing. Tho law, says Cbtof Justice Marshall, " binds him to per form bia undertaking and this is, of course,, tho obligation of "his-contract." In th? case of Stur ges va. Crowningshield, in which the question of tho Constitutionality of a Stato law, in its effect upon the obligation of contracts, was eonaidered; the same learned Judge used the following lan guage, P lp thc case bar, tb? Defendant has given hig.promis?ory noto to pay thc Plaintiff a sum of money, ou or before a cer?afo day. The contract Und? him to pay that sum on [that day : and this it itt obligation." Any law which re leases a part of this obligation must, in tho liter al senso'of tho word, impair it.-4 WhesfPRep. 1U7.. Tho contract in tba above case, was an agreompnt to pay money at a certain day, in tho form of a promissory nojto.. Two obligations arose from that contracts,-ono to pay money, and (be other to poy it at a certain time. Any interferonco on tho port of tho Legislature, with either of the obligations arising from the express agreeqyat of the parties, by which tho rights of the obliged party is in any way affected, is an im pairing of the obligation of tho contract within tho meaning of tho decision of Sturgcs vs. Crown ingshield, and the inhibition of the Constitution of the United Statos, and ls unquestionably ille gal, and it was so determined. But there is anothor decision of tho Courts on ruled " that any deviation from the terms of a contract, by postponing or accelerating the poriod of performance which if prescribes Ac., impairs its obligation,"-8 Wheal TJ. S. Rep., 84. But independent of judicial decisions, it re quires very litllo legal acumen to discover what tho moaning of tho Constitution of the United Stales is in this regard. It is merely the incor poration in the Cbartor of thc Genoral Govern ment, of a well recognixad rule of naiver**! jus tice. Any interferonco by Government, or any of its departments, in tho private coucerns of in dividuals, is an ignorant and unwarrantable as sumption of superior wisdom wbioh philosophi cal statesmanship has always condemned. The Stay Law undertake? to release a party from per forming his contracts at the time bo has under taken to do so; and defers the obligation to such period as tho Legislature shall determine In other words, it puts tho obliging party out-of tho tarma of his obligation, and substantially says that he shall perform his contract, not whoa he has agreed to do so, but when the Legislature shall direct. In other words, it substitutes the will of the Legislature for thc con tract "of the parties. Ts there a rational being who will as sume to question tho, impairing of contracts by such a law as this? In the case quoted from the U. S. Rep., 4 Wheo,., Rep. 197, Murab*li, Ch. J., uses the following language in regard to the words "imparing the obligation, of contracts It : would seem difficult to substituto words which aro more intelligible, orles* liable to misconstruction, than those which aro to be explained." ... Thc law says that a party promising, cannot ahseko -hlmaolf- fruu^lho .obligation of his con tract ; and ?aw and common sense both'declare .0>at ho cannot delegate to.b'is representatives thc po wer which ho does ] nofc jmsseis himself. Th ; Legislature however undertakes to determino thc obligations of citizen's, contrary to their express agreement, and to regulato and postpone tho per formance of . them. From' whence, and'from whom, is such power derived ? In conclusion, thorefore, we do not think that there can bo any doubt of the illegality of the Slay. Law. There are soma persons perhaps who may. suppose that, although -illogal, it may be expedlout, a?, If anything can bo expedient that is unlawful. For tho benefit of such partier, wo will, with your permission, Mr. Estros, occupy your columns with another7article showing the impolicy and dangerous tendency c." all such legislation. ULPIAN. tS?"

PATILLA R. BLALOCK died at his residence in this District, on tho 1st of January last, in the 38th year of his age, leaving a disconsolate widow and two small children.to mourn the loss of a kind husband and devoted father. Tho old year had just died out, with its sad memories-and tba new, with ila hopes und aspi rations had commenced, when death entered this family circle and.boro away a loved friend and companion. The testimony of all who know him is', that no ian in the District waa more esteemed a? un up right, honest, useful and consciontiout oitixen. Tho widowed wife writes to us,-" I spent nearly six years with him aa happily aa was possible on ibis earth. I never knew a call of charity to pass unhueded. Ho was a most devoted and affec tionate Husband, Father and Friend." Tho loss of so good a citixen and friend is not ca-ily replaced . society. We-sympathie with tho bereaved family and relatives, and tonder our condolence, pointing them to tho Source of all Comfort for strength and consolation. W. J. R, DIED, in this District, of Phtisis Pnimonaiia, on Wednesday, tho 24th January, Dr. GEORGE MAYSON. ETHEREDGE, in tho 28th year of his age. Truly it may bu said that Itv tho miiLit of life wo di?-aa tho subject of this notice had not yet lived half tho day? allotted to man, when that foil-destroyer, Conaumption, the scourge of the human raes, had marked him for its own. . .Mild and-unassuming in his deportment, his course through lifo was characterised by industry, energy and perseverance^ tempered with a quiet and peaceful disposition. He" was1 thc dutiful and .obedient son ; kind, affectionate and.indulgent ?s ia husband and parent; and as a friend, generous, confiding and true. "..He was for many years a member of tho Bap Ust Cburch at Rod Bank, regularly and quiet'y filling his seat, clearly o vid o coir, g during bis pro tracted illness, that his dependence was not in man alone; os In his own words to'his companion during his sufferings ho Stated that he felt the warning and reviving influence of God's holy spirit, and hoped not to loso sight of tko samo through .ife; and a short time previous to his death expressed a willingneea to die.. A disconsolate widow with two small ohildron mourn his loss as irreparable to thom, while nu merous friends, and especially the aged relatives, feel the bereavement most sensibly. They sorrow not, however, as th oso without hope, but feel tha comfortable. asauranoe of Ms acceptance at tho right hand of God, when stn and sorrow can nover entdr, but joy and happi ness and peace reign forever. "ea a DEPARTED this life, at bia father's residen cs in ibis Vi ?Iago, on the 19th- Jan. 1806, ofdJisooio of tho Heart, JOSEPH OKAY, in thc 10th year of his ago. Death is at all times a sad and melancholy theme, but when ono so yoong, so dobl?, and promising, and in the -rory bloom and vigor of life, is snatched away, it rendors it doubly so. .The subject of this notice WAS only to be known to be loved'fdr his many agreeable traits, both of hoad ami heart. He waa. an obedient and dutiful son ; an-affectionate and. loving brother, and a firm and faithful friend. In all tho relations of life ho'perfornacd whatever was assigned "faith fully.
