COMMUNICATIONS. want a now word or plirazo by which (o designate a class of men who havo be come quite common among us, I mean thoso who at particular times arc seized with sudden convictions of tho truth of great and leading measures, which they have long opposed and on particular occasions go over to tho opposite party nnd receive a particu lar roword. Time has been when any sudden change in tho political courso of a public man would have excited surprizo and unless good reasons were offered, public condemnation would have followod. But these changes arc now bo common that they aro not even a nine days wonder. The exercise of tho political franchise should be a matter of conscience, and the importance of a religious observance of it cannot be too often nor too strongly cn forced. It is tho ark of our safety, and the man that trifles with it is an enemy to his country, and in the eight of Heaven a per jured wretch. What hold havo wo upon the man that can trifle with duty ? In courts of justice the testimony of an indi vidual is laid aside on the ground that Ins reputation for truth and veracity is qucs tioncd. How little then can we confide in men who, by thoir conduct, shew they dis regard entirely theobligationsof conscience in the discharge of political duties! Changes in political views are as common as any other changes, and when made in sincerity arc evidences of the highest in tegrity. Thousands abandoned tho sup port of Mr Adams and joined the Jackson party, and no one doubts that tho great mass of them wcro actuated by the highest sense of duty. Now thousands and thousands nre fast abandoning the support of General Jackson's successor, and who doubts but that they arc conscientious in their course; and in this as well as the first change have a single eye to their country's welfare. The circumstances attending these changes generally leave little or no doubt upon the mind. When men are honest in their con victions their conduct is in keeping with their principles, ond the world is not left to doubt ns to motives. So likewise when men of ambitious views and aspiring dis positions, break from old associates and go over to their opponents mere is little room for uncertainty. No man ever mounted a hobby and attempted to ride into power upon it, but what all the world saw through it, and the arts used to gloss over the affair and make it plausible, rendered the deeep ion more apparent. Take a case, an in dividual of high powers of mind, capable of the fullest examination, devotes Ins best exertions to learn tho bearing of public measures, and comes to the conclusion that the Whigs are right and for years supports their cause is a leader in the party and tak's n distinguished part in the public ad ministration of the government ; but all at once, without any apparent reason, goes over. Now what arc we to think of it ! If the change of his course arises from nny conviction that ho has been in error, he can easily give those views if he is a man of sensibility he will do it if ho regards his reputation he will be careful to let those views oc Known, uut wnen sucn a one not only goes over, but is nominated to some public place, the inference to be drown is now certain, by taking the reward he shews what he had in view. Take another case, another individual of like power and capacities, and ofliko re lations to tho public, not only goes over, but keeps going ovor, if the first somerset docs not prove productive, turns another, nnd this not only without apparent reason. but at such peculiar moments of some public excitement as indicating an ndvan tage to be gained, and in due lime he also is nominated to some high (office. Now, as all men oct for 6ome object and regulate their courso to ouain mat object, we learn the object of this twistinj and turninrr. No convictions of duty then entered into tho account : they turned for the sake of on office. What are we to think of such things? It fills the mind with sorrow, and though the condemnation may not be ex pressed in words, it is felt and deeply felt, nnd not only so, but they feel it, and feel degraded by it. The price of an office is a poor compensation fur such a sacrifice. Better, far belter would it be, to live in eome secluded corner of the world and feel that independence of the soul which virtue ever gives, than to enjoy tho highest hon ors of tho State, if bought at tho sacrifice of self esteem. But tho love of power is insatiable. Its cry is give, give. The daughter of the horse leech is not more boisterous, nor the fires of incestuous desire, more uncontrola ble. How is the page of history blackened by the names of those who havo bartered honor and a fair name to gratify their hot desires. Catalines hove lived in all ages, the name of Robespiorc stands for a class, nnd Cromwell is not tho last of the rnco who have mounted hobbies and rode them for effect. Thoro is ono surprising difference be tween the changes that have occurred. In the thousand changes from Van Buren ismto tho Whigs, the evidenco is clear that tho love of office had no influence, but in the recent changes tho othor way, tho evidence is irresistible that (ho love of office was tho only moving cause. It would seem that tho party understand it, for when a distinguished man comes over for pay, his reward is forthcoming. To pass by town nominations haw stands tho nomination to Congress? Does any man believe that Mr Smith is any more a Van Buron man now, than ho was lately a Whig, or more lately an Antimason? Tho anliniasons did not TIDV BO Well and hn Infr thnm. nr mnrn nrn. bably thoy understood his object and were Bny. van uuren always pays well and hence ambitious men rind thoir interest in bartering and from tho number of bar gains that aro in progress they will soon hnvn to create new si nob m, ,i, t mand. Those who havo boot tho bush will shortly bo called on to retire to make room for the now comcrB. But I am wondering from tho point that I had first in viow, to find a nhmsn in An. nignato this class. The word dtmagogue n wuuiiy niouiiiticiH, in mo casu of Mr Smith for instance, ho docs not go about declaiming In bar rooms, but rnthcr keeps dark, if ho doos not play double. The phrase false patriot is inapplicable, for in tho recent cases thoro is no deception. Tho desertion is open nnd tho reward is claimed. In many instances advantage is attempted to bo taken of tomo humbug ex citement, that for n timo is turning the heads of pcnplo and tho candidates, like cries in the market proclaiming their wares for salo. From this circumstance, the most appropriate phrase would seem to bo that of humbug converts and unless a bet ter ono can bo found, I recommend tho insertion of it in the next edition of the 6lang dictionary. O. P. IMPRISONMENT FOR DEBT. NO. II. The strong argument for imprisonment, is its supposed necessity as a means of enforcing the collection of debts. Admit. ting its legality, and admitting for tho present tho propriety of credit, I contend that imprisonment is not required as a means of collecting debts. If the evils produced overbalance the good in any considerable degree, it ought to be abandoned. Amonir the evils which will readily occur is the cost occasioned thereby. There aro fees to lawyers, sheriffs, justices, jailers and jail commis sioners. This is a lonrr list, and wcro tho whole army collected it would be imposing for its numbers. Tho sums collected fre quently equal the debt, thus doubling the amount to be paid by a poor debtor, or to be lost by tho creditor. Some have been curious enough to draw out the long list and find the gross amount, but I shall save myself and reader the mortification of looking at it. For tho money thus paid there is no fair equivalent they who pay receive nothing in return the payment being in the nature of a penalty for being poor, and thoy who receive it bestow but a nominal considera tion whether we take into view the intel lect required or time expended. I should be unwilling to excite any preju dice against any class or set of men. There are good and bad in all. As a class lawyers, sheriffs, &c, are honorable men, but all that I havo named belong to the non-producers. Tho labors of tho whole combined add nothing to the products of the country, the general stock of wealth not being increased one dollar by all they do. Imprisonment is tho prolific source of evil. It produces a harshness of temper in the creditor, not at all in keeping with the mild charities of a humane disposition. 1 here is something revolting in tho idea of a man in ensy circumstances exacting even an honest debt by the imprisonment of his debtor ; but it seems far worse when the amount is doubled by cost and fees. But it is said thoy have a right to their pay; admitted. Thoy do nothing but what is lawful ; admit that. The man was to blame for getting into debt ; admit all that, and ten times more. And because such things can bo done in the face of heaven, and under tho forms of law, is the very reason why tho law should bo ex punged from the statuto book. But a greater evil is the effect upon the mind of the debtor, it breaks his spirit as upon the rack. What is it that any one admires in his fellow men ? What does the patriot strive to inculcate, and the law most scru pulously protest ? Wealth ? None but tho sordid harbor such a thought ! It is the riches of the mind, the bold spirit of liberty, the independence of the soul that should bo inculcated and guarded ; nnd when this is done tho nation will stand prominent for what wealth can never buy. And how is this spirit broken by imprisonment? It is all cant to talk of independence when a man may be thrown into jail for a five dollar debt, or be obliged to sell his bed. But it is gravely said that there is no real hardship, for the poor man may swear out. swear out, publish his poverty in the face of the world and after passing through an ordeal moro severe than culprits often experience, obtain a certificate of poverty, wend his way home to a disconsolate family with health impaired and broken spirit. It is idle to attempt to reason a man out of this feeling of degradation consequent upon his swearing out of jail. It cannot bo done, and we ought not to desire il if it could ; it is tho very feeling that should be encouraged. There is something revolting in the idea of a jail, and ho must bo more or less than man who can endure it without pain. Imprisonment will prostrato tho frame, tho muscles of the most robust will be shrivelled as by the touch of tho angel who wrestled with Jacob, nnd he must have an uncommon mind that docs not quail under it. Men will dio bravely in tho performance of noblo deeds, but igno miny and disgrace none can bear. Impris onment is n living death without any thing to sustain tho spirit. Tho right of imprisonment tends to nro duco a spirit of overtrading. The creditor considers this right as an additional security for his debt, and trusts his debtor beyond his moans of payment in the expectation that ho can coerce payment through the fear of imprisonment ; while tho debtor sometimes coaxed to trade, sometimes flattered by tho confidence m his credit, purchases what ho has littlo or no occasion f foi. Purchasers on credit almost invnrin bly purchaso beyond their means. This nriscs from the common mistake of overra. ling our means. In nino times out of ten the farmer who buys on tho credit of his growing crop, deceives himself as to the amount of his crop; often runs in dobt to the wholo amount of his crop s and in the ond is nbtiged to work out to buy bread stuffs for his family. Another singular feature in most purchases upon credit is, that, more is purchased than when cash is paid down. When n man has tho money in his pocket he will rarely part with it except for something actually necessary. But when purchasing upon credit hope magnifies his means, nnd his eggs are all chickens and his chickens the fabled gcose that lay golden eggs. By the provisions of the law without the evil of imprisonment all the debtor's means of payment may be reached, every inch of land can bo talccn, the house that covers his head may he appraised, tho wholo of his personal property, with a limited ex ception, may bo seized and sold at miction. The law would seem to bo sufficiently liberal to the creditor in giving him power over all tho debtor's property without throwing his body into the scale. The natural basis of credit is tho property of the debtor, and all beyond this is false in theory and mischievous in practice. It must bo admitted that when the debtor's means of payment aro exhausted, any fur thor process against his body is unmixed cruelty, and ministers to nothing but the creditor's revenge. The force of this attempted to be obviated by the supposition that tho debtor may havo means concealed which cannot bo reached by the ordinory process against his property, nnd that by imprisonment ho may bo compelled to dis gorge. Cases ot fraudulent concealment may exist, nnd when thoy do let them be reached. Our laws against fraudulent conveyances arc now very severe, and administered in tho spirit of their enact ment would seem to be sufficient to reach every probnblo case ; but if not 6trong enough, make them stronger, write them in blood if you pleass. I wish to shield no fraudulent debtor. I plead for the inno cent, who, T might almost, say, ore heguil cd into debt by the arts of the creditor. Cases of fraudulent concealment aro by no means common, nnd will not justify a law involving the innocent as well as the guilty. Of tho thousand debtors on the creditor's books, not more than ono ehnll bo adjudged guilty of any fraud, and is it allowable that in order to reach that one the nine hundred ninety nine shall bo made to groan under the operation of a law involving tho loss of personal liberty ? It should not be. Selfishness may urge the enactment of laws of great severity ; but they arc founded in mistaken views of public good. Tho public havo an interest in tho liberty of the citizen. The wealth of n nation consists not in tho abundance of its silver and its gold, but rnther in the number ond strength of its effective freemen, and how will this gold become dim when the spirit of independence in broken by tho fear of imprisonment ! Bettor, far better would it ho that evcrv debt in the land should be annihilated thnn that men should be depri veil of their liberty at tho will of nnother. But the principle of a forcible equalization is not to bo countermanded. Every one is to bo protected in the enjoyment of his own. and far be it from mo to insinunto tho lawfulness of a forcible appropriation. Give to every mnn his due. Let the law act with full force upon all the means of the debtor, but when his moans are ex hausted let his blood and his sinews be his own. Let his houseless wife ond shivering children have one consolation, that tho husband and the father yet remains with an unshackled body and an unbroken spirit. But what right has tho public to interfere between creditor and debtor? Great right and not only so, but they arc bound to interfero. Government is a natural ordi nnnce. and they who are charged with its administration arc bound so to exorcise their powers as to contribute not only to the glory of the nation, but to tho pros perity of the people. They stand pledged beforo tho world that tho power of the state shall bo put forth for tho protection of nil, to protect them even from their own improvident acts. Thoy nrn responsible to the wives and children of tho imprisoned debtor; nnd the cries of tho suffering will go up to heaven in notes of accusation that must be answered. A. B.

Which ot l ho causes can it be some how or other the store is literally thronged with customers, and it keeps me nnd my Agents constantly purchasing to supply.

When they are directed lo do an errand for a neigh bor, it is just to call at Howards and thoy will bo sure to get it there. Then Howard has always such a largo supply of goods and so many customers to attend to that they have to wait their turns, say from 5 to 20 minutes, notwithstanding ho has four clerks besides himself. They think, as many others do, that Howard is doing all tho business, and tax him for it to prevent his doing too much, in hopes ho will give up a part or be obliged to charge higher for Ins Goods and that will divide his custom, now there is no such thing about it, the moro I have to pay as a tax for my faculty of doing business, the more I must try to do; and the only way to accomplish it, is to keep an increased supply and sell cheaper, which I guess will produce the effect.
