TUE repeal of the bankrupt acts,by

arc of the opinion that the more care

not the absolute repeal. but the Miffi

probably' will be the .action of.:the
Senate. If it is absolutely repealed . ,
it willihave the effect of remanding
debtors to the operation of z State

to make credits more difficult than

large practice, and' during the next
eleven years reported the decisions
of. the Maryland Court of Appeals,

chiefly prepared by him. In 1817 he
remoued to Baltimore, and was soon
after appointed Deputy Attorney
General.of the State. In - 1820 he was
appointed Chief Commiisiener of In

he served as State Senator, resigning

years afterwards he was the acknowl

Mr. CHARLES B. WRIGHT, President'
of the Northern Pacific Railway Co.,
of which we have been furnished' a
copy addressed To the Preferred
Stockholders of the Northern PaCilic
Railway," embracing a brief state
ment of the condition and prospects
of the company. This circular states
that when the panic of 5ept.,.187;3,
came, $30,000,000 of bonds had been
sold, the interest onwhich was near
ly $2,400,000 annually. The trustees
of the mortgage, With" sdpe of the
bondholders, had a receiver appoint
ed in: April; 1875. The bondholders
met on the 30th of June following
and appointed a committee, which
after and brought the road to a judi
dial sale. _The assenting stockholders
converted themselves into preferred
stockholders and perketed a reor
ganization by the election of their
own board of directors. The road is
built and in operation from Lake Su
perior to the Missouri river at Bis
marck, 450. miles. The Pacific divis
ion is in operation from the deep wa•
ters of the Columbia river to Tacoma,
the terminus on Puget Sound, 105
mileS. The gross receipts of these
portions of the road last year were
$618,590; the net income,• $152,140.
The whole 555 miles have 'Ten ae
cepted by the government, which en
titles the company to 10,800,000
acres of land. • The company is sell
inglaud rapidly at an average of $5
per acre. Resumption of work is
promised this season, and the road is
td be completed when times get bet
ter. Nine-tenths of the bonds issued'
have been surrendered and converted
into preferred stock. The remainder
is rapidly coming in. The 7-30 bonds
are exchanged for preferred stock at
the rate of $1,500, of the latter for
each $l,OOO of bonds. This stock is
received at par for the company's
lands east of the Missouri river. As

written a letter on the Yresidential
question, in which he expresses a
preference for Gov. HATES, of Ohio,
for the Republican candidate. He
regards Dehlocratic success as meah,
ins ruin to the country, and saYs:
The Southern States are to be or
ganized by violence and intimidation
into a compact political power, only
needing a small fragment of the
Northern States to give it absolute
control, when by a minority rule of
the party it will govern the country
as it did in'the time of ,Pierce and
Buchanan. If it should elect a Pres
ident and both houses of Congress,
the Constitutional amendments would
be disregarded, the freed men would
be nominally citizens, but really
slaves, innumerable claims, swollen
by perjury, would be saddled upon
the Treasury, and our public credit
would be impaired, the powers of the
Gengral Government would be crip
pled, and the honors won by our peo
ple in subduing the rebellion would
be subjects of reproach rather than
of pride.

Lee Goss, ! President of the Nritionz i l

has written a' letter ;to the Balkh))
replying toy Jefferson; Davis' assertiob
that the mortality ofithe Confederoto
prisoners' in Union; hands was i
greater proportion than that of Ur
ion soldiers in rebel Prisons., II
Mr. Goss quotes the federal w'r
department figures showing the tot I
captures of soldiers rind citizens b '
the confederate forces to have bee
185,145, and it is estimated that f
these half were actually confined i .
prisons.' • The number of deaths i
confederate prisons was 36,401, co -
sequently the percent. of mortalit
in prisons was over 3SL and thc-pe
cent.. of the entire r captures abolit
ln.. The number of captures byf thle
Union forces was 476,169 ; acttia4
confined ,(the rest' being paroled or
exchanged), 327,570 ;. per , cent - i•
mortality in prisons, 131 per cent; f
mortality of ~whole; number Of ea
tives, 6-k. Thus the mortality in rel
prisons was about three times
great as in Union prisons. 2
• Mr. Goss also' quotes the official
report of the Confederate inspector
of prisons, Lieutenant Colonel D. T.
Chandler, who is faVorably indors ,
by the Confederate assistant Secre

A: great deal has been said, both in
;religions and Secular jonrtials, about
" the secret of, Mr.MOOOPs success,'" EI
but those who', , have watched the man
will, we think auTee'witlins.that thisli
Sect'paragraph from the NeW S. - ork'Ecen4
9—:P6st tells the whole i truth in a.ll
nutshell— and is, perhaps.' the truest
, ,•,
(6eription of his • systein_ that has?
yet been published.
"'Mr: Moody is i - jot a t cry eloquent
preacher. lie has no speCial- gifts of;
oratory. , • His language Ili tpetgu-':
age of
: the common peopW,l) even r°,
;to the point of inaccuracy at times:
'His voice Is not naturallymelodins4
nor is -used with the i least elocul
tionary skill. Mr. 'MoodY i is not
-very persnaSive speaker ''and he is
6ertainly,neither a profound thinkeii:
nor an accomplished logician. In the -1
pulpit as out of it he is it plain blunt
man; with no new gospel And no new
notion of the' old one to proclaim.
lie is very much in earnest, however,
not only in his desire to' accomplish
tile ends he has set hiinself; but equial-r
ly in his conviction - that the work
is one in which man by hiniself can
Flo absolutely nothing: In his devo
tion' to: the work,.and his conviction
that it must be done of God it' it is
to be done at all, lies the secret of
his' uniform success. Believing that
man can do nothing and ,that God
only can , do anything, he begins by
preaching that alone. ''irc nrgeshis .
hearers to abandon itillicipe of -a re= .
yiVal to be wrought by htunan means,
and- topray for its coming from above.,
The moment that he persitades theta
to this view of the -matter the work
is actually dime, so far; as human.
agency is concerned, for the trustful ,
temper, the humble reliance upon a.'
higher power, the unquestioning faith
which he preaches in the :outset, of!
itself constitutes it. revivitl!of religion
among the persons who 'already pro 7,
feSs- it. This faith
-is itself the relig-;
ion of Eiangelical churches, and. to'
arouse it allot'. is to revive' the req.!
ion. 'When, this
Or mind has.
become'general in the religious corn
munity,- wpen the revival is the true
sense'ef the word has been wrought,:
its effects in the conversion of persons
who Were not before prOfessed Chris
tians follow as an ineyitable conse-3
quenee. Writing of the subject froml
a philosophic point'of view, as seenr3
tar writers . must,' : we. say that this is 3
Mr. :Moody's system; and that theseL
are the phenomena whiehltave mark,l,
