by a bankrupt law, and we think it much
better to amend the one we have, than to
abolish it with so much precipitancy.
" . 'in this State, if the bankrupt law be re
pealed, we must 1,111 back upon the odious
, and unjust law of Assignmen . , which gives

practice under it, Banks and Bank en
&niters. are al ways pail fir s st; and the man
who has furnished the assignor with any
thing else than money, must stand back
until the,broker anti banker are satisfied;
and the eases of those whose claims are

ed. Besides this, to repeal the bankrupt
act, now, would be to give a fresh impe.
tus to the credit system, which has receiv •
a salutary check, aui which, ove believe,
oughsto be still further restricted.
Fur. our own part, therefore, we think
that bad tho' the bankrupt law may be, it
is,far preferab'e to . our State insolvent law.;
—and we do hope that the Pi esiclent msy

the bill repealing the act, and to suggest
reforms in the present law ad ma y

Watchful jealousy of State rights which we
al,,vays hope to see cherished, to an ex.

gray other way.

amounting to the above sum, before the
