The New York Chamber of Commerce and Southern debtors. --At the last meeting of the New York Chamber of Commerce Mr. Conkling offered the following resolutions: "Resolved, That a memorial be presented to Congress, praying for the passage of a law exempting suitors in the national courts of the Southern States from the operation of the statute of limitation for a period long enough to give legal creditors an opportunity to enforce their demands. "Resolved, That a committee of fivive legal creditors an opportunity to enforce their demands. "Resolved, That a committee of five members be appointed by the President to carry out the object of the foregoing resolution." We think that Mr. Conkling might have saved himself this trouble. A Southern Judge would be very apt to decide that "time does not run" as against creditors who are prevented by a state of war from enforcing their claims — as in England time never runs against the king, and the "king never dies."
