A Case Under the New Stay Law.
An important and interesting question was
presented to tlie District Court of Philadel
phia, on Saturday morning, urisimr under the
recent Act of 13th October, ISST, allowing a
►lav of execution for one year.
In May. 18f~. John Sidney Jones confessed
u judgment in favor of Haggerty A Co., for
$2400, to secure the payment of three pro
missory notes of SBOO, on condition that it
nnv one of them should mature and be unpaid
the plaintiffs should have execution for the
-whole amount of their debt. On the 13th of
October, 1857, the day ihe new act became a
law, the first note became due and was not
paid. Oil the 14th of October, the plaintiffs
issued an execution for the whole amount of
their claim, and the defendent now comes into
Court arid asks a stay of execution for one
year from this time.
Judge Parsons, on behalf of the defendant
offered to show tnat the defendant was the
owner in fee of certain real estate, worth be
yond all incumbrances, the amount of the judg
I>avid Webster, Esq . for plaintiffs object
ed to the right of the defendant to have a fur
ther stay, and contended—
-Ist. That the agreement on which the judg
ment was confessed, provided that an execu
tion might issue, if any one of the notes re
mained unpaid ; that this was a contract be
tween the parties, and that the recent act giv
ing the defendant a stay beyond the period
contracted for violated the 10th section of
article Ist of the Constitution of the 1 nited
States. Mr. Webster argued this point at
great length, and referred to numerous deci
sions, among which were Bronson vs. Kinzie,
1 Howard, Sup. Court Rep. (I . S;) Mc-
Cracken vs. Hayward, 2 Howard ; Grantloy's
Lessees, 3 Howard : Kberle vs. Cunningham,
3 Wharton ; Western Savings Fund vs. The
City, Law Journal.
2d. That the defendant's case eame within
the exceptions contaiued in the act of 13th of
3d. That the defendant had already had
his stav of execution under his agreement, and
conld not get a further stay.
4th. That the agreement amounted to a
waiver of the new stay, as it contained an ex
press stipulation that the execution might be
issued if any one of the notes remained un
Judge Parsons, in reply, argued that the j
Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, in 8 \\ atts
and Serg. had affirmed the constitutionality of
the Stay Law of 1842, and that the act of
1857 was equally constitutional, as it acted
not ou the rights of parties, but on the reme
The Court decided that the defendant was
not entitled to stay of execution.
Fellow Citizens :—To render to Almighty
God, who controls the destinies of nations and
men, the homage of devout gratitude and
praise for his goodness and mercy, is the ap
propriate and solemn duty of a free and high- i
ly favored people. As the giver of every good
and perfect gift we should ever recognize His
hand in onr mercies, and acknowledge our do- j
pendence upon His providence : and although
adversity may throw its dark shadows across
our pathway, vet we should be assnred of this !
that " the Judge of all the earth wiil do right."
During the past year the bounties of a kind
Providence have not been withheld froin our
Commonwealth. Our free institutions have
been preserved, and our rights and priviliges, j
civil and religious enjoyed and maintained.—
The arts and sciences, and the great interests :
of education, morality and religion, have claim
ed the attention and received the encourage
ment of an intelligent and liberal people.— ,
Honorable industry in its varied departments
has been rewarded : and although recent and
severe financial revulsion has filled with gloom
sorrow and distress, the hearts and homes of
many of our citizens, yet no fear of famine, no
dread of impending public or social calamity,
mingles with our emotions of gratitude for
past blessings, or weakens our trust for the
future, ill the providence of Him who wounds
but to heal, and " whose mercy emlurcth for
ever." A plenteous harvest has crowned the
labor of the husbandman—peace with its gen
tle and reforming influences, and unwonted
health with its benefits and mercies, have been
vouchsafed to us.
In acknowledgment of those manifold bless-j
ings, we should offer unto God thanksgiving j
and pay our vows unto the most High ; and <.
call upon Ilini "in the day of trouble ; He j
will deliver tliee and thou shalt glorify Him." j
Under the solemn conviction of the proprie- 1
tv of this duty, and in conformity with estab-1
lisbed custom anil the wishes of many good
citizens, I, JAMES POI.LOCK, Governor of the |
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, do hereby
recommend Thursday, the Twenty-sixth
day Of November next, as a day of general
thanksgiving and praise throughout this State
and earnestly request the people that, abstain
ing from their usual avocations and all worldly
pursuits, they assemble on that day according
to their religious customs, and unite in offering l
thanks to Almighty God for his past goodness j
and mercies ; and while humbly acknowledge.
ing our transgression, anil imploring Ilis for
giveness, beseech him, with sincere and earnest'
desire, to return and visit us again with His!
loving kindness, make us worthy of His boun-1
ties, and continue to us the rich blessings of !
His providence and grace.

Teachers' Institute at Troy.
Pursuant to the call of the bounty Superin
tendent, a Teachers' Institute was organized
nt Troy borough, for the townships of Canton,
Columbia, Armenia, Lcroy, Granville, Troy,
Wells, and South Creek, on Monday the lifth
After some remarks by the Superintendent
relative to the labor iu which those, present
were about to engage and the necessity of
close application to the business before them
I)r. PARSONS of Troy township was elected
President, and Warner Carnoehun of the bora'
Secretary. Prof. C. R. Cobnrn, A. M . was
also chosen principal. The names of more
than ninety teachers were registered the first
day. The members increased daily, so that
before the close there were one hundred and
forty teachers iu attendance.
The sessions during the day were devoted
to close application to the several branches
which the law ret pi ires common school teach
ers to understand, much pains being taken to
have them kuow how to teach, as well as
what to teach. In all of the recitations, each
pupil was required to be most rigidly accurate
as to matter of fact, and the grammatical con
struction of the language used to convoy ideas
or give answers. Orthography, Intellectual
Arithmetic, and that part of Geography which
requires the use of a globe for its illustration
were kept prominently before the class.
These drillings were interspersed with re
marks upon the methods of arranging, and
governing schools, and the modes of communi
cating instruction. The Superintendent was
assisted by Mr. John J. Crandull of tlie Troy
Academy, Mr. Henry C. Phelps of Smithfield,
together with several indivual members of the
Institute, Mr. Charles E. Gladden rendered
efficient and highly acceptable service in the
department of vocal music.
During the session, Mr. Potter of Provi
dence 11. I . gave an able lecture, interspersed
with practical illustrations, upon penmanship.
This exercise was a highly profitable one to the
teachers, and valuable hints upon that impor
tant branch were given. Upon Wednesday
afternoon of the last week, the teachers, with
a large number of the citizens of the place,
enjoyed themselves by meeting in a social ca
pacity in the hall, where the daily sessions of
the Institute were held, Mr. F. Paldwin of
Wavcrly occupied the chair, while each and
all who wished to, made whatever spirit lie
saw fit. Many witty things were said and
done, and much laughing participated in.
On Thursday afternoon the closing exercises
were held. The large room was crowded, not
withstanding the rain fell rapidly during the
whole day. After remarks by sevcrl of the
persons present, as well as by the principal,
an excellent valedictory was read by Miss
I)uriug the whole two weeks the sessions
were well attended by the citizens. The even
ing were devoted to hearing lectures and dis
cussions upon topics connected with teaching,
several young ladies also read original essays
before tlie large audiences that were crowded
in to the Methodist church each evening.—
There wore also declamations by the young
men. Upon Friday morning, the members of
the Institute, scholars and teachers, together
with several who had collected in the place to
attend the County Teachers' Association, which
was to commence its regular quarterly meet*
ing at 11 o'clock A. M., were assembled in the
street,between Pomeroy's and Leonard's stores,
under the direction of the principal. While
thus collected into as compact a group as
j>ossible, Mr. Gustin, an artist of Troy, suc
ceeded in getting two very fine Ambrotypes of
the group. So perfect were the shadows thus
fastened upon the glass plates, that an individ
ual who was previously acquainted with any
or all of the one hundred and forty or fifty
faces upon the plate, could recognize them in
stantly. The whole group is seen standing
except the County Superintendent who appears
in front seated in an armed chair.
These pictures were subseaucntly presented
to Messrs. Crandull and Cobnrn by the pupils.
The gentlemen in accepting these peculiarly
appropriate gifts made a few pointed and af
The interest of the meetings was not only
kept up from day to day, but continually in
creased. Never before have the citizens of
Troy, partaken of so bounteous a "feast of
reason." Much good nniit result to the cause
of education. Much valuable instruction must
liave been received by the teachers, and the
elevation of the schools in this portion of the
county must be the fruit of this labor.

such an extent that the Bank of England has

days, this figure would be still further ad vane- ;

enormous ; on the 13th inst., a sum of 400,-

the log on which he stood projected over an

nearly to the ground, hanging by some small
slivers. In attempting to cut off the slivers,
it suddenly became separated and being on a
