The Committee on the State debt
and liabilities have as yet taken no
definite action in relation to the im
portant subject committed to their
charge. It is intimated however
that they will sqpie day recommend
such a course with regard to it as

is chairman of the committee. .
The lock in the Alabama Legisla
ture continues. The Sheriff of Mont
gomery has called upon the Presi
dent to invoke his aid to settle the
difficulty. He represents that the
differences dividing the Legislature
are no nearer solution now than at
that time; that the people at large
are becoming very anxious on the
subject ; and that the business of the
State is seriously embarrassed in
consequence of the failure of the
Legislature to harmonize. The Presi
dent replied that the only thing the
government could do was to tender
Kindness extraordinary. Mr. Hill
Senator from Georgia, is endeavor
ing to get a bill through Congress to
relieve from their political disabili

rants for the place which he now
tills with so much credit to himself
and State. And here ia the reason
he gives for this graceful act of lib
erality: "After "the slaughter of innocents"
that will take place on that occasion,
I desire that none of them, or their
apparitions, shall rise in the future,

may be practiced, or supposed to

A Monetary Stringency seems to
prevail in New York. Mr. Wood has
introduced into Congress the follow
ing preamble resolution :
Whereas a monetary stringency
prevails at the financial center, to
the great embarrassment of legiti
mate business, and the injury of
trade : and whereas it is commonly
reported that this stringency is large
ly due to the locking up of gold and
currency by unlawful combinations
of individuals and corporate institu
tions acting under foreign charter:
Resolved, That the Committee on
Banking and Currency be directed to
inquire whether such unlawful com
binations exist, and, if so, what leg
islation is necessary to prevent them
hereafter, with power to send for
persons and papers,
The Raleigh Era has been much
exercised of late on the subject of so
cial ostracism, which he is nleased
to denominate the refusaLof some
men to invite Radicals to their
houses. I ' . '
A few days ago the Era had a most
furious, abusive, and agrarian article
against "aristocrats!, accusing them
of all sorts of bad th ings in a, sort of
a general way. In addition to this
tirade he added that the Re
publican party don't want to asso
ciate with tnem anyhow - that lt'inX
tends to run this State on a! political
"and social schedule of its own, and
that these people who prefer the
company of Conservatives to that of
Radicals are heaping up social
wrath against the day of wrath, &c.
All this "sound and fury, signifying
nothing," was because,, forsooth,
. Gov: Caldwell was not invited to
hall until late the night before it
came off, and ; no republicans -were
made managers ! , - -s -; ; y: (
i Next day be tatea it back v after
this fashion ; for'VtinJWrijostracizers"
he says: read "sinking ostracizers,"
which by the rWTOnertsja i5ost
opprobrious remark into a meaning
less one; and lor Social ; wraih he
says rend "political wrath," which
takes the sting out of the phrase en
tirely.' And Gov. Caldwell writes a
letter in whicbiie savs he recognizes
the righ t of a nin to choose his own
associates and to invite to hU house
whomsoever Ifepleaesand that no"
man ha a rigbt to complain if he
is left out He only -stipulate that
if thtr&ismorfpther objection a ?man
should not be excluded, merely be
cause he differs with the hos in
politics. r So for so good, t , . ;V, ,
! Thfs exlfrdortlinary concession that
a man has a right tc says who shall
eat h is : victualsand set by h is fi re
sidc without being questioned, is all
we ever heard any the most ultra
"fire-eating Southerner" claim.
Wehope to hear '"nothing more of
thconteraptibtebowl that Repub
licans are ostracized on account of their
nolities.&ffit'iat.- all' events before
any further complaint is made we
want to see the injured "party set an
example. We want to see Gov.
Caldwell or any other Radical give a
party and invite his party men with
out any distinction except that of
honesty and respectability, to stick
itheir legs under his mahogany! We
would like to see the Radical in this

Rice, of Kentucky, introduced into
Congress on the 20th of December,
the following bill for the repeal of
the law imposing a special tax upon
retail'dealers in leaf tobacco;
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of
Representatives of the United States of
America in Congress Assembled, That all

The bill to abolish the usury law
being the . unfinished business, its
consideration was gone into. , r
- The question recurred upon a sub
stitute offered by Mr. Brown, x
Mecklenburg, fixing the rate of in
terest at six per"cent..when no amount
is specially agreed on, but allowing
parties to contract between them
selves for any rate they may see lit
to agree on.
Mr. Brown, of Jecklenburg, ad
dressed the House at length in advo
cacy of the substitute. He argued
that this restriction upon "the traffic
in money operated to drive capital
out of the State, and was diametrical
ly opposed to the farmer's interest,
3r. Brown, of Davidson, moved to
postpone until 3onday.
Mr. Gorman moved to refer to the
3essrs. jlcGehee, Anderson, of
Clay, and Dudley, col., opposed any
further postponement. The House
was fully prepared to act now.
Mr. Bowman, to test- the sense of
tne House and give latitude- to: the
debate, would move to indefinitely
Mr. JcGehee next took the floor
and addressed the house at length
upon the matter before it. He said
that the question had the advantage
of being elevated above the domain
of politics, and should be discussed
with the same deliberation and calm
ness which should attend the eluci
dation of a mathematical problem.-
Mr. 31. then proceeded to review that
portion of the history of the political
economy of England, bearing upon
this matter. He took the position
that the traffic in money could not
be carried on upon the same basis
as that m other commodities lrom
the fact that the situation of the
country, both in a political and a
commercial point of view, must have
its weight in determining what regu
lations arc most conducive to the
interest of the community, &c.
Mr. McG. continued for some time
in giving reasons why" our condition
rendered a return to the old law a
wise and judicious measure.
Mr. Jones, of Caldwell, took issue
with Mr. JlcGehee, and in an elabo
rate speech, advocated the passage of
the bill and in opposition to the mo
tion to indennitely postpone.
Mr. Stanford next occupied the
floor. He agreed with the gentle
man who preceded him. He hoped
the usury law would be abolished.
Mr. Waugh was opposed to any
Mr. Blvthe would not vote for any
repeal of the usury law.
Mr. turner favored the substitute
of 3r. Brown, of ilecklenburg.
Mr. Bryan, of Alleghany, thought
the matter should rest where it was.
Jr. Joring trusted that the mo
tion to indefinitely postpone would
not prevail, and the propositions
before the House would come
to a vote upon their merits.
He argued against both the original
bill and substitute.
Mr. Badger argued at length in fa
vor of the repeal of all usury laws.
Pending definite action the House
A great man has passed away from
the world of letters. For more than
a quarter of a century BulWer Lyt
ton has been one of the prominent
literary favorites pf the English
reading public. A man of talent
rather than a man of genius, highly
cultivated, tasteful, industrious and
fired with literary ambition, he
fought. for and won his place in the
front rank of literary Englishmen.
His efforts were numerous and va
ried. He tried the romantic novel,
and he almost equalled Scott. He
tried the society novel, and his suc
cess was generously admitted. He
tried history, and his unfinished
work on Athens gave proof that de
votion to historical study might hive
given him a place side by side with
Hume and Gibbon, and Macaulay
and Grote. He tried poetry, and if
his success as a novelist had been
less 'his poetry would have com
manded the attention of a larger and
more sincere circle of admirers. He
attempted the drama, when many
had failed and when failure on his
part would have, been dangerous,
and his "Ladv of Lyons" promises
to keep its hold of the stage so long
as light comedy is cared for by an
English-speaking audience. He tried
his hand as an essayist, and, although
he had not the ease and polish of
Addison, the rough strength of Hen
ry Rogers, or the.brilliancy and Vig
or of Macaulay, he gave abundant
evidence that be was a man of large
knowledge, of liberal views and of
great powers of expression. His pub
lished speeches are not numerous,
but his addresses to the associated
institutions of the University of Ed
inburgh and" to the student at the
University of Glasgow, as well as
some of his Parliamentary orations,
show that, although he had not the
easy and ready utterance of Burke,
he was not far behind him as a mas
ter of eloquent language. Few men
have tried so much and done so well..
If he had attempted less his , success
could scarcely have been less great,
but he might hnve left a deeper im-
pression on E ngl ish - 1 i terature. It
was not in the man to be a leader of
thought in the sense in which Goethe
was a leader, or Coleridge Or Garl vie;
but he, has left us some novels which
in the great future will ' take, their
place side, by side with: th$ best nov
els of Scott, and some poetry which
will be as lasting as English; speech.
Ha was not a Thackeray Jhewas not
a Dickers; but his "Eugene Aram,"
his "Last Days of Pompeii," his
"Zanoni," will" be read and admired
sn long as there is a taste for "Vanity
Fair" or for, "David ; CopperfielcL"
Having reached the ripe age of 67 it
cannot be said that Lord Lytton died
young, but it is not unfair j to say
that in the whole course of the 19th
century few men have -wielded the
pen with more persevering industry
or withf greater success. It cannot
be said that he has left the world any
great legacy of thought, that he has
made it either much better or much
wiser ;. but that he has contributed
to the world's happin?ss and given
an impulse to the cultivation of lit
erature must be admitted anjd such
a man cannot be said to have lived
in vain. He' had won his llaurels
before Dickens commanded attention
and before Thackeray was known.
The illustrious three, the friends and
teachers of our younger years, are
gone ! .Vheh shall we see their like
again? Full of years and full of
honors, Bulwcr has laid his pen aside
and gone to t his rest. . For the
pleasure he has given us let us be
grateful. The impulse he has given
to the cultivation of literature let us
try to catch. The example he has
left behind him, so far as that exam--
pie is worthy, let us endeavor to
imitate. iV. Y. Herald.
Congressional The House of Re
presentatives Passes a Resolution
to Repeal the Bankrupt Law.
The passage of a resolution by the
House Monday afternoon just before
its. adjournment repealing the bank
rupt law took everybody by surprise.
An amendment to that law being
under consideration, Mr. Hazelton,
of New Jersey, offered a resolution
repealing it altogether. The resolu
tion, was seconded and the question
promptly put, against the'earnest ex
postulations of numerous members,
especially those from the' South, led
by- Colonel Scott, of Virginia.
The repeal of a law so important
as this should certainly have been
well considered and deliberated. The
indecent haste with w hich this mea
sure was pushed through, when the
House was alnmt to adjourn, is not
at all creditable to Congress and looks
as if it was a pearranged plan. The
southern States arc vitally interested
in this matter. They have been
struggling to get out of their depres
sed and disabled condition without
going into bankruptcy; but they have
seen their property declining, and
the last hope has failed. The bank
rupt law is the only chance of the
financial .reconstruction of the South,
It is to be hoped that the Senate will
refuse to pass a bill thus hastily rush
ed through, and most cruel and in
jurious to a large class of unfortun
ate citizens. "
The New Senator From Louisiana.
Gen. W. L. McMillen, the gentle
man elected by the Fusion Legisla
ture to fill the unexpired term of the
Hon. Win, Pitt Kellog, in the United
States Senate dervies his title from ser
vice in the Union army during the
late war. He is a native ofOhio, and
brother-in-law of ex-Postmaster Gen
eral Dension. Since the close of the
war, he has been engaged iii plant
ing, in Carroll parish, and since 1868,
has been a member of the General
Assembly. During the late election
he cast his fortunes with the Liber
als, and on the organization of the
Senate, in December, protested
against Pinchback's unauthorized ac
tion and withdrew. The Republican
says that "so long as General Mc
Millen remained true to the party
that elected him, and to whom he
owes so much of the honor and dis
tinction he has enjoyed in this State,
we (it) regarded him as one of our
ablest and most consistent political
friends." We opine that the Gener
al is quite as able now as he ever was,
and as to political consistency, he
will lose: nothing in passing from the
Mechanics' Institute to Odd Fellows'
Hall. It is understood that the new
Senator will leave for Washington
to-day. N. 0. Times.
