TWO SIDES OP LIFE.
There is a shady side of life, ,
A lid a sunny side as well, - '
And 'tis for every cue to say '
On which he'd cruiose ti dwell ; - '
For every one unto 'uimself
Commits a grievous sin.
Who bar the blessed sunshine out,
And shuts the shadows in,
The clouds may wear their saddest robei,
The soil refuse to smile.
And sorrow, with her troops of ills,
May threaten us the while ;
But still the cheerful heart has power
A sunbeam to provide ;
And only hofe sou's aie dark,
Dwell on life's shady Bide.

O beantiful. bright, brown woman : ' "
With th oval Moorish face.
Black hair gleatniug purple in sunlight,
And a wondrous da'rm and a grace.
Of form and manner and carriage
That Nature, not Ait, .bestows,
And eyes that dart on the be older
Light that flashes and burns and glows !
Cjwuie hither, ard tell me the county,
-The season and the year of grace,
If Jam awake or but dreaming:
Tell me name and nay race. '
What is this swathed round bosom ?
Why do I thus breathe in paiu ?
Why rushes the blood like a river
Of molten flame through toy brain?
What name beareth younder mountain,
Whose summit with fire is aglow ?
What do I here with the palm trees
Waving over tneto and fro 1
What are those gray crumbling ruins.
Their stories of war and of wjoe ?
Whence came that stiange wild music.
Like echoes from ages ago ? ;
Whose are you stalwart soldiers.
White-clad and dark-browed and strong ?
What moans that blare of the trumpets.
And roll of the kettle-drums long ?
Why move they forth from the portal
With the measured and heavy tread ?
Who walks there hi chaius btweeu them

TIIE AMENDED BANKRUPT LAW,
AND THE HOMESTEAD.
Mr. Editor In your issueof the

abnveeaption, over the signature of "Da-f

points in your c Inmns

emptions will be allowed in any case of

Thirdly, wjiether, this being the case,
fergons now having the benefit of the
lomestead and personal property exempt
tions .had not better avail themselves of
the Bankrupt law, at once, and save the
risk cf being deprived of it by the decis-
' iii of the Supreme' Court of the United
The firs! point is one about which law
yers differ, aud-oii which there has been
nodecision in this State bv either the
State or Federal Courts. All that 1 can
do is to discuss the question, ind give my
reasons for believing "that the Bankrupt
Cotuts will respect the homesteads allot
ted bythe Sheriffs iu thu manner indica
Section 20 of the Act of April the 7lh,
18G9, for carrying iuio effect', the home-j-tead
pr6visiori8 of our Constitution, is as
'Tf the judgment creditor for wlrom the
levy iamade, or judgment debtor or per
son entitled to homestead exemption, shall
be dissatisfied with the Valuation and
allotment of the appraisers or assessors,
(as the case may be,) he may within ten
days thereafter, or any other judgment
credit u ithin six months, and before sale
under execution qf the excess, notify the
C!erk of the Township -..thereof and file
with him a transcript of the return of the
appraisers or assessors, . fas the case way
bej and thereupon the Clerk shall notify
the other Trustees of the Township to
meet him, at s time specified within ten
days on the premises, to re-assess and al
lot said homestead. At tbo time specified
the Trustees shall raeet on tlie premissee,'
and! having first taken the oath prescrib-
ed for appraiser, they hal! rieir and
examine the bomestead laid off, and make
their report as required In jectiou twentjr
two of this Act."
It is mainly upon the construction to
be given to the above quoted iectiou that
the whole question turn. From that
section it will be seen, that if the judgment
creditor, ! or judgment debtor or person
entitled to homestead exemption, fhall be
dissatisfied with the valuation and allot
ment of the Sheriffs appiaiers. he maj
apply to the Trustees of the Township for a
re appnsemen and nllotnient "tuthin ten
days thererfter."- There it no mistaking
the meaning of this language. The par
ties immediately interested in the first
apprisement must, if they are not coutent
with u, apply for a re-appmemem "with-
iti ten days" from the ctofctherof. If they
fail to make such application within the
specified! ter days" they most 1 ever af
terwards, abide hy what has been done.
Ihit, it is believed, will uotbe question
ed by any lawyer.
Or any other lodgment creditor within
six months " Look at the relation which
these words bear to those which immedi
ately preceed them, and I think it will
clearly appear that they relate back to
the date of the first allotment bv the
Sheriffs; appraisers. I do not see how
they can be cos trued to relate to the date
of the judgment as coteudecTfor by some.
it tiiere is any doubt, upon reading only
thus far, that they-relate back to the first
apprisement, that doubt wtH be entirely
removed by reading and giving full force
to the words which immediately follow :
"and before sale under execution of the ex
cess. From this it is neif,ctlv clear to
my mind, that no judgment creditor can
demand a re appiisement outhe grounds
ot dissatisfaction merely, o-fter the laps of
six mouths. It is also clear that he can
only demand it "within six months, pro
videdhe does so "before sale under execu
tion of the excess." Alter tbe lapse of six
months from the date of the first apprais
meut, such appraiament can only be va
cated on the grounds of "fraud, complicity
or other irregularity," as provided for in
Section 24 of the same Act, which is as
"Any appraisal or allotment by the
Trustees of a Township may be set aside,
on the application of any party interested,
or fraud, complicity or other irregularity.
The proceedings shall upon petition, as
in special proceedings, and the applicant
shall give bond to the opposing party for
costs and damages."
Section 20, first quoted, provides the
only way in which tlie appraisal or-a!
lotment of the Sheriffs appraisers may' be
vacated; Section 24, last quoted, provides
the only way m which the. appraisal or
allotment of the Township Trustees tV;
second appraisal or allotment may be
sei asme. is uoi mis clear trom tlie
plain reading and construction of the law?
Again, it is admitted on all hands that
the homestead provision of our constitn-
tion and the laws of the State nassed for
tbe purpose of giving effect to the sameJ
create an estate out of the lands of the
judgment debtor Our Supreme Court
has-even desided that this estate iB a de
terminable fee. over which the "home
steader" may exercise all the rights and
powers of other land owners, during the
continuance of the estate. How can this
be unless there be a way of ascertaining
and permanently fixing such estate. If
every subsequent judgment creditor for
thirty years can, within six months after
obtaining his judgment, have a re apprais
ment, tbe great object of the law will be
defeated, instead of a fixed estate for
the life of himself and wife, and durin
the minority of his child 'en, or anyone
01 luem as VTOVca b' law, tie will have
i only.a" uncerrain and fluctuating estate,
Who supposes that any scusiblc man
J would make any improvements upon an
j estate held by such an uncertain tenure I
! It CailllOt be. When the rCtUlll of the
j - " " " ""'
j ?Ktered, as required by bcction 22 of
quoted, it possesses all the attri-
hutea of a conveyance, as much so as the
! assessors appointed by a Justice of the
t, .1 . r ,1 1 - .
c on the petiti ,n of the claiment-in
my hum bit opinion. It changes the es
tate and vests it iu other patties in like
manner, and it can never afterwards bo
disturbed, except; for fraud, ficc, as any
other deed may. '
I therefore conclude, that in all cases
where tbe return of the SheriffY apprais
ers has been acquiesced in for six mcnths,
and in all cases where the retnrn of the
Township Trustees has been duly regis
tered according to law. the Bankrupt
Courts will respect the homestead thus
allotted, unless "fraud, complicity or oth
er irregularity" be shown. In all cases
Uvhere the homestead has not been laid off
ana a mueu in pursuance oi hue pro
visions of the State laws, I believe the
Bandrupt Courts will direct it to be laid
off and allotted by appraisers under the
rules and regulations prescribed by the
This brings me to the second point.
According to an important decision recent
ly mtde by Jnde Itives of the D rtric
Court of the Uliiten States for the South
Western District of Virginia, (In Re
Wyllie, American Law Times for Sept
tember, 1872. page 330.) homestead cxn
emptions will not be allowed by the Bank
TUpt. (Jourts in any cases of antecedent
debts, should '.he Supreme, Court of the
United States decide it to be unconstitu
tional as applied to such debts. And sup
pose Judge Rives to be in error in the
conclusions at which he arrives, the effect
will be tbe same in all eases where there
Afe docketed judgments against the debtor.
F6rif the homestead law be decided to be
unconstitutional as applied to debts there
tofore contracted, then all docketed judg
ments obtained upon such debts are liens
upon; the homestead, and it must be sold
to satisfy tliem unless the debtor avails

aavi.-e ail persons now having the bent fit
o tbe homesteau and personal property
exemptions, that the only way by which
they can secure them against great almost
certain, danger, is to avail themselves of
Hie benefit of tbe Bankrupt law at once.
By going in promptly, they can obtain
their discharges before any decision aff,;ct
mg the homestead can be made by the
Supreme Court of the United Slate.
Otherwise they may lose both home stead
and personal proper y exemptipns, and
senjtjir families' thrown iijwf'the cold
chaKtTfeTof the'world to starve.
I !ns opinion and advice is riven bv
one who has devoted much attention to
the subject, and as an evidence that he
has given u honestly and conscientiously,
it is ooly necessary to tate that he has
himself sought that relief which he com
mends to others. And in conclusion, I
would be glad to hear through the columns
of The Amf.EICAS, any criticism .'that
"Davie," or any other member of the B ir
may have to make upon the legal points
P. S. As a matter of importance to
Bankrupts whose petitions were filed pre
vious to the adoption of the Amendment
of June the 8lh, 1872, but whone cases
are still pending, I make the following
quotation from the opinion of Judge Rives,
already referred to :
"Another question is made as to the
application and operation of ihis amenda
tory act to pending cases of bankruptcy
It is clearly prospective ; but, as a reme
dial act, it may be availed of in all pend
ing cases where assets are undisiriLutcd,
and the enlarged exempTion can be granted
without prejudice to the interests already
vested before the passage of the act."
This view, I may add, seems to me to
be fully sustained by the learned Judge's
reasoning. Of course, after the barkrupt
has received his discharge he no longer
has any status in the B wikrnpt Courts,
and cannot avail himself of the enlarged
exemption, that is, t lie hometead ad ad
ditional personal property exemptions of
our State Constitution and 1 iws.
