THC liANKKlUT LAW.
Last Tuesday the United States Senate I
repealed the liankrupt law. This law passed
in March, 1807, lias always been the cause
of wido diwitUfaction nnd although efforts
tere mnJo In 1868, 1S70 and 187" to amend
it so as to remove the objectionable feature",
none bnvo proved sufficiently effectual. At
pWnent tho pressure for its repeal Is very
ulroug. Us objectionable le.uuresare many,
merchant or trader is liable to have bis cs-
tat, thrown into bankruptcy, his pecuniary
creditand reputation ruined nnd his property
subjected to losses nnd sacrillt.es in cases I
where in n legal sense ho is perlectly solvent,
where most of his creditors might be averse
to any such measure, where if reasonable
time were given ho might pay his debts and I
have a surplus left, aud when no act of
fraud either of omission or commission is
nharffed on him. It m onlv necetwary tuat a 1
man'H commercial paper bo unpaid for four-
teen days ty make his estate liable to bank
ruptcy. Bankrupt estates under this law I
are generally eateu up by charges nnd ex-
iieuses. In.New Orleans out of 1,800 cases,
in only one, was any dividend realized. Its
workings in New York and other large cities
are uearly the same. If the house will pa-s
this repeal act, within tho next month.it
will meet the hearty thanks of many business I
men all parts of tho country.
. It mav seem odd that an editor can escape
from political questions, aud come down to
very day subjects. We are interested In
"butter," nnd bnvo been ever since pan
cakes were invented. In fact, wo occasion

a communication riom which we condense I
tha following :
