For the I ►enioernt. l
THE IRANIKRitirr LAW.
By the law just passed, jurisdiction in
bankruptey is given to the several United
States District Courts with the United I tates
Circuit Courts acting in a supervisory capac
ity as Courts of Equity, and Judges of the
District Courts will be assisted by Registers
in Bankruptcy, whose powers are limited,
and provision is made for refereuce of dis
puted questions to the District Court Judges,
and for appeals from the District Courts to
the Circuit Courts, am, from the latter, in
eases where the ma' riu dispute shall ex
teed s'..! ; otto, to dm Cuited States Supreme
There are two kinds of bankruptcy,
untary and involuntary. In the Cumer any
person residing within the United States
jurisdiction, owing over $3OO, and finding
hitnself insolvent, may apply by petition to
th e j u d ge of the district in which he has
resided fur the six months preceding the
date of the petition, or 14 the longest period
during such six Mouths, and shall thereupon
be declared a bankrupt. The creditors hav
ing been properly notified by the Court may
appoint one or more asi,ignces of the estate
of the debtor , the choice to ha made by
the greater part in value and in number of
the creditors who have proved their debts,
or in case of failure to agree. then by the
district Judge, or where there are no oppos
ing creditors by the Register. The whole
affairs of the bankrupt pass into the hands
of t h e ass i gn ee s , who have full power grunt
ed them necessary 14 the collection of all
debts, and the final adinstment and closing
up of the estate ; and where delay is likely
to occur from litigation in the find dirt m Om
and of de assets, the court is empowered
to direct their temporary investment. The
bankrupt is liable at all times to be c a lled up
fitr examination on oath opal matters relat
ing to the disposal or condition of his prop
erty or business transa and for good
cause his wife may in like manner be com
pelled to attend as a witness in the case.
In the distribution of the bankrupt's es
tate dividends are to be paid as agr e e d u p on
by a majority in value of the creditors, from
time to time, at three months' intervals but
the following claims are first to be paid in
full: First, the fees, costs and expenses un
der the act : second, debts, taxes and as
sessments ; timurth, wages to any operative,
clerk or house servant to an amount not ex
ceeding fior labor performed within six
months preceding the bankruptcy
debts due to any person. , who are or may be
entitled to preference by the laws of the
l*nited States. The voluntary bankrupt is
entitled to his discharge provided no fraud
is proved against him, at any time, from
sixty days to one year after the adholic abut
or bankruptcy. but the proof or discovery of
any fraud or concealment deprive. him of
the right to disvharge. No person who has
owe received his discharge is to he entitled
again to become a voluntary bankrupt, our
less his estate is sufficient to pay seveoty
per cent. of his debts, or unless three-fourths
or his creditors assent in writing to his bank
hererences and fraudulent convey:wee*
are declared void by the act. amid suitable
provisions are made for the voluntary bank
ruptcy of partnership and corporations.
The evitaptions are as follows :

furniture, and such other articles mei tows.
saris- of such bankrupt as the assignee shall
designate and set apart, having reference in
the amount to the family , condition and cir
cumstances of the bankrupt but altogether
not to exceed in value, in any case, the sum
of $:00; and also the wearing apparel of
such bankrupt, and that of his wife and
children, and the uniform, arms and equip..
'Hunts of any person who is or has been a
soldier in the militia or in the service of the
United States ; and such other property,

the laws of the State in which the bankrupt
has his domicile at the time of the coin

such State exemption laws in force in the
year I S 6 I"
Heels of involuntary bankruptcy under the
law are daSillivti as follows:Departure or
absenve from the State where debts are
owed, with intent to defraud creditors ; con
cealment to avoid service of press for the
recovery of debt; concealment of property
to avoid seizure on legal process; assignment
designed delay, defraud, or hinder credi
tors, arrest and detention for seven days, un
der execution fir a debt exceeding one hun
dred dollars ; flaunt imprisonment for seven
days in a civil action founded on Contract
for one hundred dollars ; assignment, gift,
eonfes.sion of judgment, or any other act by
which preference is given to any creditor,
endorser or surety ; dishonoring commercial
paper, or suspending and not resuming pay
ment for fourteen days. The petition for
101 adjudication of bankruptcy in such cases
may come from one or more creditors whose
debts reach two hundred and fifty dollars,
but the petit' must be brought within six
months after the add bankruptcy has been
committed. In involuntary bankruptcy the
proceedings are more stringent titan in other
cases. The penalty for any fraud or conceal
ment, direct or indirect, under the act, is
imprisonment, with or witboutlard labor,
for a term not eaceeding throe years.

We observe in the Tore Lula, published
at Petersburg, Va., the article given below
on the situation of things in the country. It
sppears to us to contain a vast amount of
truth and it will no doubt strike many others
in the same way. The following is the arti•
cle in question
WHAT IS To lIE THE nEscur?
This is a question asked us every day, and
as difficult of solution as was supposed to be
the riddle of the Sphynx. The more strew
uous and rapid the efforts of the destruc
tionists in Congress to tear down the pillar*,
of constitutional liberty, the more emnplicat
ed do their schemes become, and stimulation
is lost in doubt and uncertainty, and nothing
seems assured beyond " fearful looking
for" of some dire national calamity which
threatens utter destruction to the prosperity
of the country. Apart from the action now
being taken upon Stevens' military force
bill we can get but a general view of feeling
and sentiment at the National Capital, de
rived from the opinions of those who pro
fess to be posted as to the complications of
the situation. There seems but little doubt
in the minds of Southern men who have
been in Washington in a psuedo representa
tive capacity, that terms, however degrading, '
may he bad of the party in power, and that
it is hopeless to look for help to the Demo
cratic party of' the North. It is further- I
more asserted to be the opinion or the little
band of Dettmerats and Consocvatives in
Congress and out of Compel% together with
influential papers not Democratic, but which I
are battling with the Denontracy in behalf
of Cooservatism, that the South can place
nn reliance whatever upon the promises and
pledges of the Republicans. and if she doe-,
she will not only be dectiv , a, lint will be de
sorting the only party which even pretends
to uphold and state! by the Constitution.
The rapid disintegration which the Consti-
Puh' is now undergoing at the hands or,
Republican fattativism. it is thought by clear
thinking Conservatives, must inevitably lead
ti strife and civil war. The excitable class
think it will be precipitated at an early day
in all probability by the impeachment of the i ,
President, whilst iambi heads believe that
no resistance will be made, moil the n e w
form of government begin v 4 to hear oppr.• -
upon the people at. large, and that the t
day will not he far distant when se It is the
eass. Dolte, of New York. together with '
many of the leading journals of the North,
even including Repuislitant onus of a milder
stamp, agree that the commereial interests
of the country are now on the brink of ruin,
that a crash is imminent, nay almost inevi
t,:!tle, which has no parallel ; and yet in such
a crisis, and at the moment when the Su
preme Coma is seriously threatened, there
s e em s to be no tendency to hri in the
price of gold such as wool] be supposed to
result front an anticipated panic.
Awl a strange feature of the times is.
that whilst Dentocratie and Conservative
Members profess to believe that the Repub.
hew s are destroying the Constitution ate'
undermining the liberty of the country—'
erecting an odious despotism and paving the
way to untold civil troubles, they are. both
upon the floor of the Rouse and socially, ou
terms, not only of courtesy but of intimacy
and personal friendship with these same
would-be assassins of public liberty. This
an anomaly in the present state of affairs,
front which our renders will have to draw
their own conclusions. The Dentiterats are
at the same time said to he sat earnest and
determined set of men. and fully alive to the
perils which Illellats! the Repoldie, and in
the last degree anxious to preserve the Con
stitution without the shedding of blots!, by
combining the Conservative forces of the
whole country. This combination, however,
the Republicans are bent upon preventing,
cost what it may.
With regard to the position of the Presi
dent the most reliable accounts we have,
state that he% not alarmed nor shaken, but
full of hope and sanguine of the ultimate
peaceful solution of national affairs. Ili*
immediate l'ollowers are equally sanguine, l tut
the party which has hitherto and still sus
tains hint, seem to have but little trust in
him, and none of that warmth which should
reeognise in him a great and fearless leader.
They do not look upon hint us a leader, and
what is worse have no one upon whom they
can rely as the Moses of the age to lead
them through the wilderness to the promised
land of national peace and prosperity.
To sum up in a word, what apart from the
struggles in Congress over the prostrate
body of the South seems to be now the pop
ular tendency of Northern feeling, every one
is paying court to General Grant, as court
was never before paid any military chieftain
of the United States. What the result of
it an mar be, time alone can decide. As
for ourselves we can make no speculation,
nor suggest a solution which may trot be de
the unanticipated developments
per* While yet we were enemies, Chri-t
died for us. Did you ever attempt to im
agine what must have been the state of
mind that God was in when he looked upon
those who were not repentant, that were his
enemies still, and that worn so vagrant as to
reject his long life services, as to cause his
passion, and as to work out his death? Did
you over attempt to imagine what must hay?
been the state of mind by which, alter hav
ing toiled for them, he could in the act of
dying pray fur them, saying, "They know
not what they do? l►u you get any idea of
what the divine feeling is toward a wicked,
hating, and hateful being, which Manifests
itself in dying for him as the means of rm.
I knew a durkey once, who, unlike most
of' his race, was industrious and economical.
The result was that he had a "house and
lot" near a little village in western Penn
sylvania, lle soon concluded that it would
nut do to own property of this kind without
keeping domestie animals on it, and deter
mined to stock it. His first acquisition was
11111 old sheep, of' the nude persuasion, which
he was very proud of. lie spent many leis
ure moments playing with the animal, teach
ing it various pranks. Ills chief amuse
ment was to get down on all fours on the
grass, and nod defiance ut 4he animal. See
ing which, the latter would make a savage
plunge at him to try and sec whose bend
was the hardest. (It is a question.) But
as the savage creature came forward like a
battering. -rant, nig wool! incline hi: head
suddenly and drop his liice to the earth,
The vonseqnence was, that the sheep, mis
sing his mark, would tumble over and over,
for a rod or two. One day, Park called a
couple of hi: , !1..' doiKi to witness this
achievement. came to the knee and
looked over, whilu n,, ';t down on his hands
and knees, ns usual, and began to nod at
his property. The sheep did not min to
see him at first, but presently raiited his
Tread from the grass in, which he bal bun
grazing, and frowned upon him.
"Oh, jis' watch him now'." said t 4 anitio,
iluckey matte a rush, as was his
wont, and Sande) suddenly dropped his
limo to the ground. But, as the fiends
would have it, his flat nose came in contact
with a sharp snag, he jolted bark just in
time to reveive the ron shock of the sheep's
hard head between his own nose and wool.
There was stick rolling and tuuthlinc over
and over for the next quarter of a ntiume,
that the neighbors could not tell which was
the sheep and which was the nigger. They
soon got separated, though, and Mr. Nig.
got slowly up, grinned foolishly, and said
`Tun my word, he ocher done dat aline!

Eight With a Maniac.
Yesterday afternoon .a tragedy occurred
in the lower portion of the city, or probably
just outside of the city limits, in the settle
ment known at* Boonville, which will prob.
ably moult in the death of a man whose
name is unknown, and who will, in all prob
ability, be laid beneath the sod without any
one to shed a tear over his grave, and with
out his relatives knowing where he is laid.
The facts in the case, as near as we lure
been able to learn them, are about these
A few days since the wounded man took
pomemion of one of the houses in Boon
ville, where he held complete sway, and so
violent did he become in his actions that
permit's !hared to pass the house. Tuesday
the policemen were sent for, but it being
late in the afternoon, they did not go to the
place until yesterday afternoon, when Offi
cers (Joseph Harman, Enoch Arnold, and
1. Planz were dispatched to the place to
quiet the excitement or arrest the party.
When they reviled the house they Cll4llw
ored by persuasion to induce him to come
from the house, promising not to harm him
if he would ; but he not only refused to do
so, but threatened to kill any one who would
enter the lieuse. The ()leers, however, did
not regard his threats, and they attempted,
t o enter by the way of the window, whirs
they were met by a shower of bricks, hurled
at them by the maniac. ftueof these mis
siles struck and came near killing Officer
Harman. The officers, seeing that they
could do nothing else, fired upon the man,

Hold the Itstdiestbodßespontable.
For a week past the air of Washington
has been full of rumors that some sort of a
compromise was about to be patched up be
tween the Radicals and Pre.4letit Johnson.
I low notch or how little truth there may be
in these reports we do not know. but of me'
thine we are perfectly well assured. Any
eompromise which will relieve the Radicals
front a particle of the enormous weight of
responsibility which rests upon them, ought
hot to be countenanced Po a single moment.
Ileocr that the South should remain mime
re. erred in Congress 14 years to conic ; bet
ter that it should temporarily be subjected
to military ru d e, outrageous as this would
be ; better that the next i're4lential elec
tion should be put to the hazard of a deci
sion in the Northern States alone, than to
make any compromise by which even a por
tion of the dread responsibility to the future
should be s hin e d from the shoulders of the
Radicals. They refused to compromise at
one time when the lea-t coneession would
hav e averted war and saved all the live. l o st
and all the treasure wasted during the blood
stained administration of President
son's immediate prolecessor. During the
progress of the war they fiweed upon the
country, they utterly refs-el to listen to any
suggestions of statesmanship, and they still
stubbornly insist upon carrying out their
extreme views. Any compromise that they
might now pretend a willingness to make,
would only be a delusion and a snare. No
bargain would bind them, for they reeog
nixe neither moral nor legal obligations, save
only such as make a favor of the neer°.
Nothing short of universal negro suffrage
will satisfy them. This is what they aimed
at from the beginning, though they . denied
it with so much apparent earnestness that
the people were deceived, and this is what
they will untiringly labor to accomplish, till
they succeed or are overthrown beyond the
power to raise again. Let no man who
wishes to preserve the character of our gov
ernment as "a government of white men,"
commit himself to any proposal of compro
mise that embraces negro suffrage in any
Encounter Between an Ele
phant and a Kat.
A very extraordinary encounter between
a rat and an elephant has recently taken
Place in the Gallen of Plants, London,
which was witnessed with interest by hun
dreds of persons.
The keepers were engaged in destroying
a great ninny rats, when one of them'es
eaped and ran to the spot allotted to the ele
phant. Seeing no other refuge, in the
twinkling of un eye the rut snugly ensconced
himself in the trunk of the eleiehant, very
much to the elephant's dissatisfhetion. lie
stamped his feet and twisted his trunk
round like the sails of a windmill. After
these evolutions he stood perfeetly still, evi
dently reflecting on what was best to do.—
lie then run to the trough where he was ac
eustomell to drink, and plunged in histrunk,
then returned to his den, and raised his
trunk ; with the water he absorbed, he
dashed out the unfortunate rut, which was
in a sheet of water like that issuing out of
a tire engine. 11`ben the rat fell to the
ground the elephant seised him and made
him undergo the immersion and projection
four times. At the fourth throw it feel
dead. The elephant with a mnjestie e:r,
but cool and pinch; crushed his nnnoying
little enemy with his foot, and then went
round to the spectators to make his usurl
cake., collection of e., singer, and other dainties.
The feat was received with vociferoup sp.

I am Limon ashamed to tally, considering
