Tbe party who opens a dispute does not stand . f. - ... l.U L on su iwr (rvuuu wiui ne readers ns - siis opponent, unless the former be heard in reply. Those who cannot confute, may observe, the argument which it not undereleod, must be misrepresented. It is, therefore, merely to place the papers of Uluscnooi on fair ground, that any reply rt made to tne pa pen of 11 creator, To much of them, no reply it necessary. OUschool's arroment respectinr (be station ry price of loans, he it willing to commit to the reader with the answer to it, with two remarks : 1. I hat men do retire from buuness, because they are rich, and are desirous of sue and quiet : more retire in prosperous limes than in others, because it takes less time to get rich t therefore, in brisk times, when most capital is wanted, most it put into market and io dull timet, tht contrary it the case. t. That in periods of haxanloui trade, money (as a general trith) remains at plenty, and loans at low to the responsible mail at at others : to men who are not responsible, loans become difficult, because they are unsafe t and this difficulty it not to be overcome by adding to tha rats of interest, but by giving a guarantee. On word here at to the degrees of security, as tpoken of in Mercator't latt number. Tbe statement of the supposed gradation of security from I per ceut to an even chance, 65 per cent, and to forth, thews the futility of this reasoning. Wat ever an instance known, that a regular, able merchant added 60 per cent to the price of his goout, on account of the ttandingof tbe purcha ser ? In such a case, he either askt guaran tee, or refuses to trust. Merchant in trade make only three divisions of security good pay, ilow but ssis, and unsafe. The ordinary rate ot interest it calculated for tbe second tht Ant hat a deduction the last it not trusted. If merchant! were to calculate the standing of their customers by the percentage, (not to speak ef the invidiontness of it,) it would occupy all their time, and end at last in mere guess. ; ,.; - ,. The Arst reason for tbe usury laws, in Ihe 3d no, ol Oldtcbool, it mis - stated by Mercator; he divide what it indivisible. Tht argument is, to prevent too tpeedy accumulation of wealth, aod to make Inter est at low at possible." To prevent the merchant in trade from getting rich is not desired. ' Rut when he retires from trade, and changes activity for ease, it b politic, and, as tne roercnaiu may uoote u retire or not, it is not arbitrary, to ' preserve to the . induttrioas men, wlto hire his capital, at large a portion of thermits of their foduitryL as can be.Uunt, con sistently with a reasonable inducement for lending. The ox on the threshing floor must not be muzzled: It is belter that Ihe profits of trade should remain dispersed, in I be bands of those who made them, than ro to increase a heap al ready lanre enough. , . In replying to the second reason in tht same no. .Mercator mnUkes the. reason why tht usur er demands a security, and alto tht nature of the security given. He states, that because the note lie. of a person In foiling circumstances, who is driven to a usurer, it void, the latter has a pledge put in hit hand. Tht reason it not bocauia such note, kc it void, (lor all security for usurious loans it equally void,) but because the merchants credit it bad : the security would be deaamled, if tbe note, Ac were valid, and no law araintt usury existed. Neither it the security given a pledge : with a pledge in hit hands, tbe merchant can borrow of the banks or of any lender of mo ney, for this is the best security, aod that at tha leg! rale : besides, giving a pledge, like a tale, would Detrey his embarrassed condition. The security given, it one, which gives the usurer power over the merchants property in whole or in part, remaiuing in his owo hands. Thii power it as liable to be made void by tbe merchant at a note, kc. but the usurer confides iu the subject of bit usury, as one who utll rut resist him : to such, for tht most part, doe be confine his dealing. Now if the utury lawt were re. tealod, tbe failuip man would be equally oblig ed to riva tht required tscurity: nor would auy other than tbe present nsnreri, bt wiUiogto deal wi'h him and undergo the trouble and odium ol such a connexion with an insolvent estate. It it taid, th.it the effects of a monopoly are not to be dreaded : it it well known, that the broken or the baokt of this city could make money scirce almost in a day would they not take the advantage? Landholders, at a class, art not at indepeudont at money holders ; and teaaatt are not 'more eager to hire booses than borrowers of atone t to hire it Yet houses stand mntr everv rear on account of bixh rents s and landlords are known to nave uieaectueu taran i.m awaa ftAnnf ft In fisina rents. It it asked ho w we shal I fix tht degree of sense which shall need the protection of lawt ? Yet we know, that some men are weak, aad can be easily over - reached, etpeciaJlj in so deceitful a contract at a loan upon interest: that men too are in distress and advantar if taken of it per - hapt tht fact of payiug bigh interest is as good a criterion of a man's condition as can be de sited. Not one of the ettmpJee of tva - 'iow of the usury law in VtercatorH 4lh No. would escape its force, unless the usurer committed penury Sow it w too much to my that usurers (giving ihe devil his doe) won Id generally twtar false. How capital is taken out of the loan market, when it is invested ia stocks, is inconceivable. Government stock u a direct loan : bank and insurance ttnrkt art all m nlcTsd in loan. I must now bid tbe public tire welt. In taking leave of Merrator, I should bare thanked him or hit compliment, did I not believe that he wivU it under a btlief that ho bad confuted Orichoct - H a duellist rr'atcly flert hit aid to tht saan whom he bat murtally wounded: but aWeling myself etitt alive and unbtjrt, tad coosci - ous tot Mercator was at aoeloaioa, I mum re - tervt my thanks, and decline paying him any oommiaenlt to bit acatonts or to Dt mtorma - tion.
