To .hh* (} Jiu'k*rfotrrd, K«] , Chvrntn of the Judi
ciary Commitli* rf ih; II.me rf f) I, yolti:
Drir Sir:—1 suppers it is a foregone conclusion In
coutiuue the stay Uw in noon form during the pendency
of hostilities between (he Confederate Staled aud the
Duited State*. Il is eminently ti: that there should he
a measure of tho sort for the re'icf of those who are t'»
actual service, and I should rep ret its to‘a! repeal ou that
account. Rut It seems to me, it is tqjally unfit that any
others should be embraced within it* protection. Messrs.
A, B and C, who bare not gone from their homes, who
are as busily engaged as ever in miking moucy by m:r
ehandixe or farming, or any of the thousand employ
ments at which money is how being rtpidly made, bave
no suf8:ient reason to offer for exemption from tbeir
present liabilities. Their families have not been left dee
titutc—tbeir usual resourced are not cut eff— they are
as capable new of providing to meet ail tbeir engage
ments rs at any period prior to ths commencement of
hostilities—and al! the ordinary reasons urged in favor
cf exempting the soldier from tho pres-sure of debt may
properly be urged oyaintt exempting those who are cot
soldiers from the burden of their ongtgeatots. I should
like to sec a mcd'fication of (he stay l»w which would
g»to this extent; and if thtre were any hope of securing
such a modulation, I should enter into a more minute
-p-t'fira'ion of the advantages attending the change.—
I believe the advantages of such a change, would reach
every class of tho community.
The purpose of my present letter, however, is to ci’l
your attention to a lew modifications of the Uw which
surely no right mhided person cau o'j ct to.
Rants ukiixr trust ntttts.
No sales can be tutde uudir the pres ut stay Uw with
out the consent of all parties, grantor, trustee and beue
tic ttrics.
Iu some Cises this rule operates harshly and unjustly
upon every cue save the debtor.
Take for <simple this: A debtor makes a gei.eial
assignment, wi h a covenant of rela'e on the pirtef the
e editors who sign his deed. Hs rotates p >-ses-iou of
the property until a pyle is made. All ths creditors ate
anxious the propci ty shell b« sold. 1 is confessedly in
sufficient fo supply eren tho h»lf of their claims. T e
debtor has f»-iil»ely no interest in the pries the property
■ill brb g, for whether a great fire* or » small one, he
is equally released by the covenant from respousibilty to
tlie creditor*. Is it cot monstrous that iu a case like
this, the (tobtor ehouU b: enabled by his timpls tefu .1
of assent, to postpone the sib of the property to the
clo-e of tliewsr? Tata is, surely,one of the instance*
iu which the present stay law should be mod li d.
Another ta*e occur* •hire ihe debtor rein tin* at
home in the quiet ft joyn.ent ot land purchased from an
other without payit g fjr it, or, where tho purchase mo
n*y haw beeu advunotd hint by a friend on the failt ol
it and be rcfuses to piy in'rreit ou tin* porcha*.* money iu
the one c .** or 01 the advance iu the other.
Another cose will bo found where the owner of laud
h i* sreu ed a > accjmoditli’ii endor er by a deed of trust
*u the v nperty be now live# r it. The icgotiwUs uote
.ell-' due and the drawer (owuer) allows i. to remain un
rald. Tho endorser, lo protect his credit, pays it; ami
hn must await the ph astir* of the drawer before he cau
reimburse himself from the property pledged a* *tc'irity.
In all these cases there should b j a tight to sell at !h
diMretiou nf the trustee certainly,if not upon the demand
of the beneficiary. At: amendment couched iu language
somewhat as follows would 1 sij pi \ < licetthu*chang
es, if approved of.

j There is no alas! upon whom tho present stay law

It has uot yet had tiro* to reach, io its dbtstrona eff-c's,

Vet the poor landlord Is utterly bdples". IIo cannot
mske his rent by a distress warrant, for tnough the war
rant i-sue and a bond be giv«n, a merely formal plea
will suffice to Mara off ths eolUotloa until the war ia
dosed; or, perhaps, there is not property enough oi
the premises to satisfy tbc rent. Thi landlord cannoi
eject his tenant; for an ucliwful detainer “requires tin
intervention of s jury," and no case requiring the inter
vention of a jury can bo had without content. The ten
ant will not consent. And ho the tenancy coulinace,
and the tenant eiti in uciliitu'bid and profound security
while the Liudlord is required, for his accommodation, tc

• '»thcui long. They moat sufftr the penalty of wrong
doing. Landlords will be chary of renting to doubtful
tenants. Tenants to secure houses to live in must com
recommended by ample fortunes or undoubted security.
Thus the large claw of tenants, who now make their
living by their daily toil, will find it hard to get homes ;
and, if they do get them, they must do so by paying a
b'jfiut to mike up the deficiencies occasioned by thr
neglect and ill desert of others. The truth is, the in

“ I will now proceed V) give yon a brief description of
tho battle which was fought between our forces nud the
F.derals. Wo received intcl igrncc tho day before we
left Fairfax, that tbn enemy wonld march upon us on
Wednesday, 160,000(!) strong, and, although wo bud a
very small force, yet wo were very anxious to give them
battle. But Gen. Binbsm ordered us to retreat to Bull

tho neat turning, and about 11 o’clock the enemy com
it- need cannonading u?. Oar troopr prepared to give
them fight, and the battle veiy ;.ooti commenced in good
;trtie»t. The rear of musketry and booming of cannon
• *,!- h.’.ard from all sides. Our troops routed them throe

forcements each time. But tho third time our troops
ciirged bayonets on them with such desperation that
they beat It I rrcipitnt.n retreat for Coi-trcville, -about Sc

every inch of ground. The Npw Orlcftn1 Tic rs threw
away their niu-krta aud pitched into the Vew 1 nrk

to left. They were finally routed about night. We cap*
hired li'tween m y and seventy pieces of cannon, a
largo number of lioraes, pyoylaims. wacon1, a rills, am

mention. Ir the fl'lit cm Tlmr-day, nur loss was about

their entrenchuieoU and came out in the open field to

THE ENEMY’S OPERATION'S IN EASTERN

In the general and signal failure of the I/ncolniter to

aud the result of it his been the death of many of the
men. They dropped all along the road from sheer ex

The order wa* promulgated at " o’clock in the af'er

order sai l that the tick must also be brought along, and
with ir.snffi dent transportation ov ;r roads that cannot
