Meek died this morning, about two o'clock»

He spent an hour or two yesterday in ray

His health and spirits seemed better than

The name and fame of Judge
M eek was and will remain indissolu

frequenily there is much difference
^between these as in the case mention
ed by good Bishop Home. Two
learned physicians and a plain,
honest couutryman, happened to meet
at an inn, sat down to dinner togeth
er. A dispute presently arose between
the two doctors on the nature of ali
ment, which proceeded to such a
height, and was carried on with such
fury, that it spoiled their meal, and
they departed extremely indisposed.
The countrymatî, in the meantime
who understood not the cause, though
he heard the quarrel, fell heartily to

to his honest labor, and at evening re

A STAY LAW.
In ordinary times, when agricul
ture and commerce—those handmaids
to a general diffusion of prosperity
—are found cooperating on fixed and
enduring bases, and serving to keep
up an equilibruim of interests among
the people ; when society is in a set
tlen condition and men can see their
way more clearly and calculate with
more precision as to their future
prospects; when the worthy and
industrious can avail themselves of
all necessary pecuniary aid from
friendly capitalists, and when capital
is abundant in hands ready and wil
ling to loan it on sufficient security—
in fine, when the condition of a
country and its people is that of a
steady and well organized system of
advancement and reciprocal interests
and welfare, such an idea as that of
a law to suspend the legal enforce
ment of debts, liabilities and obliga
tions would not be conceived or toler
ated. But, the manifold troubles,
difficulties and misfortunes which
have grown out of the late war, and
the consequent inability on the part
of so many of the people of our State
to meet their past indebtedness dur
ing the present transitional state of
things, without the sacrifice of the
little all they may have left to them,
point to the necessity of some legis
lative interposition to save these
people from the jeopardy of utter
ruin ; and to the' further necessity,
in the interim, of forbearance on the
part of creditors towards their debtors.
Doubtless some mode of relief for
debtors, as well as of protection to
creditors, says the New Orleans Bee,
will be agitated in the next Legisla
ture. A stay law has usually been
unpopular in this State, and it might
justly be so where it tends, as it
commonly did, to operate with par
tiality. But a stay law that should
aim to prevent general bankruptcy
and commercial confusion, and to ap
ply equally to all classes where all
bear more or less the relation of
debtor and creditor, and that should
impair no one's legal rights and se
curities, hut simply postpone and
mitigate executory proceedings—
such a law might fitly engage the
consideration of our legislators, and
commend itself to the general ac
ceptance of the community.
But what is to be the remedy be"
fore the Legislature can meet 1 All
the Courts will soon be in session
grinding out judgments ; those who
are sued must try to save themselves
by turning all their resources to ac
count, and will sue in their turn ;
defendants will become plaintiffs,
plaintiffs will be made defendants,
and in the corrosion and friction of
the law there will be a general de
composition in all branches of busi
ness and in every species of proprie
tary interest. Sales precipitated by
such a process,—especially sales of
lands which have so sadly depre
ciated, owing to numerous causes
which may be, under a policy of
mutual and wise forbearance, in the
course of no long period wholly re
moved,—would be hardly less ruin
ous to creditors than debtors by rea
son of the insignificant amount of the
proceeds compared with the former
valuation on which debts were usu
We can conceive of no remedy in
the meantime but what may be
afforded by a good understanding
among all parties to the effect tha^
litigation should not be pushed to
extremity. Let creditors make known
to debtors that, accepting whatever
can be paid without ruinous sacrifice
at the time, they will be eentent
with confessions of judgment by de
feno.mts accompanied with volun
tary» stays execution on the part
of plaintiffs. This »'f'jld eeeure the
legal establishment of all valid claims,
place all just creditors on an equal
footing in law, and give them all a
better chance of realizing the full
amount of their judgments by volun
tary payment from debtors, or, if
need be, by the ultimate sale of the
property of the latter. In this way
legal prosecution of debts may be so
mitigated as to stimulate industry
and enterprise instead of necessita
ting wide spread bankruptcy and
From a communication in the
Planters' Banner (Franklin, Parish
of St. Mary,) urging the passage of
a stay law by the next Legislature,
we copy the following extract :
Mr. Editor, I woulc} like to know
the meaning of this indiscriminate
suing ? Do the few men who hold
our promises to pay, secured by "ne
vareiturs ," and a thousand other le
gal hitches, intend to sell us out 1
Laws are made for the protection of
society, and not for its destruction.
Laws are made to secure the weak
and the helpless against the oppres
sion and snares of the strong apd
cunning. Laws, in fine, are meant
to answer the great ends of justice
and equity. If those who owe debts,
contracted in times of unparalleled
prosperity, are forced to their pay
ment in times of unparalleled hard
ships, when the single question of
obtaining the necessaries of life is
taking the extreme energy of our
population ; when articles of con
sumption of every description, are
exorbitantly high, and money cor
respondingly scarce, ought we, the
unfortunate debtors, to be turned
houseless and penniless upon the
world, to satisfy the rapacity of
creditors ? I don't pretend to say
that claims honestly contracted
should not be paid ; but I do say
that time ought to be allowed to pay
them. Law is perverted from its
true meaning and intent when it is
made to answer the purposes of op
pression, of injustice and inhumanity.
Yes, Mr. Editor, it is inhuman to
exact the uttermost farthing from a
man whose word hitherto has stood
as his bond, when there is no earthly
prospect of his paying a dollar with
out utter ruin of himself and family.
And when the present proprietors
are sold out, when a melancholy
band, they move to some more hospi
table shore, will our country be bet
tered by exchanging them for anoth
er and different class ?
Mr. Editor, I regard the old propri
etors of our parish as second to no class
of men in the country. I regard the
men who by industry, thrift and econ
mical management, made our paris .
what it was, and who will regenerate
it if the^ is any regeneration in
it, as among the best people and
oitizens that are to be found in these
broad United States. To provide
against this threatened calamity to our
country, it is imperative upon the leg
islature to frame a law staying the ex
execution on judgments for a time
sufficiently long to allow our lands to
enhance in value, and to give us poor
outcast debtors a chance to get a few
of the indispensable "greens" in our
empty pockets. I want to see our
candidates for Legislative positions
pledged to the passage of laws secur
ing the people against the rapacity
and avarice of creditors. Now, I don't
say that every man to whom money is
owing is an exacting Shylock—there
are bright and shining exceptions ;
but the tendency of mankiud being to
war on each other in some shape or
other, laws must intervene to prevent
the vultures of the race from preying
upon their fellows.

A Preamble and Resolution* for a Sinking
Fund by contribution to build a Oood

an appropriate building in which to meet
for the transaction of business; and, be

pendent Order of Good Templars, Bitnated
in the city of Baton Rouge, La., will be a
permanent organization for good, and
eventually will, or may be the place Of
organization of the State, and believing
there are many well-disposed persons who
will voluntarily contribute of the abund
ance of what God has given them, for the
purpose of bailding an appropriate hall in
this city for said Lodge of said Order*
therefore, Fidelity Lodge, No. 1, of the
Independent Order of Good Templars, at a
regular meeting, passed the following
Resolved, That Fidelity Lodge, No. 1, of
the Independent Order of Good Templars,
situated In the eity of Baton Rouge, La.,
needs a suitable building for the transac
tion of its business, and that it will be
necessary to receive contributions for such
purpose, and that we therefore make the
necessary regulations and resolutions for
receiving and takins care of the same until
such time as it shall become sufficient for
Resolved, That we appoint our Worthy
Financial Secretary of each quarter re
spectively to receive all contributions for
said purpose, to pay the same over to the
Worthy Treasurer, the same as other
monies, and the Worthy Treasurer shall,
as often aw the contributions reach ($50 00),
fifty dollars, invest the same in United
States seven-thirty bonds, or if these can
not be secured, in six per cent, compound
interest bearing Treasury Notes, and de
posit the same in the first National Bank
of New Orleans; or, if there be one, the
first National Bank of Baton Rouge, to re
main there until such time as they may be
needed for said purpose.
Resolved, That the Worthy Financial
Secretary make a verbal statement at each
Lodge meeting of the receipt« of the week
or evening, and each month and quarter a
written monthly and quarterly statement
of the amount received for such purpose,
and the report copied and filed. He will
also learn of the Worthy Treasurer where
the monieH are deposited and note the
same in his quarterly reports. He will
also keep a register of names of the donors
to this fund, who shall wish to havs their
names placed on such register.
Resolved, That should this Lodge give
np its Charter before having used the said
funds for the said purpose, that at their
last regular meeting, or if necessary at a
spécial meeting, the Lodge pay over the
stud funds to some other Lodge of this
Order in this State, to be used for the samo
purpose, and should there be no Lodges in
the State which can make such use of it, it
shall be paid over to the Right Worthy
Grand Lodge of North America to be used
for the interest of the Order.
Resolved, That by a three-fourth's vote
of the Lodge at any time after such funds
become sufficient, they may be used to buy
a building site, the same having been re
commended by a competent Investigating
Resolved, That this preamble and these
resolutions be published in The Templars'

tary life and officiai incumbency ;
having entered the House of Commons
ju 1807, and haviog become Secretary
of War in 1809, from which time he
was in Ministerial position almost un.
interruptedly to the day of his death
when he had been Prime Minister for
upwards of ten years. Lord Palmers,
ton was equally remarkable for his
political and official facility. He
showed equal aptitude for all offices j
of Government ; and for affiliation with
any that might have control of those
offices ; Yet this seemed by no means
to result from greed of place or wan 1
of political character.
He was, says the N. O. Bee, indif
ferent to ordinary party distinctions
and bad the tact to make more or less
use of all parties iu forwarding his po.
iitical vi ews. He seemed, in fact, to
have taken for his model Halifax, the
great "Trimmer," Lord Macaulay's
paragon of an able and successful
statesman. His administration wa s
always adroit, and often vigorous and
extremely high spirited. The nation"
al tone which he usually imparted to hi 9
foreign policy secured him the hearts
of the English people before whom he
was invincible. With his death the
strange coalition of which he was the
centre will no doubt at once dissolve
and it is difficult to anticipate what
new combination may succeed it.

F orce .—Tbe Paris correspondent of
the Chemical News states that an im
portant experiment has been made by
M. Duchemin during a holiday at tbe
seaside. He made a small cork buoy,
and fixed to it a disk of charcoal con
taining a small plate of zinc. He then
threw the buoy into the sea, and con
nected it with wires to an electric
alarm on the shore. The alarm in
stantly began to ring, and has gone
on ringing ever since, and, it is added,
that sparks may be drawn between the
two ends of the wires. Thus the
ocean seems to be a powerful and in
exhaustible source of electricity, and
the small experiment of M. Duchemin
may lead to most important results.
