Halk-way RxPCDlATlOJt.?We regret to see a
?class of legislators andj urnals engaged in raising
nice- distinctions in regard to Repudiation, and con?
tending that, while a State ought to pay the utter?
most farthing of her bwnds for which she has
received full value, vet she is justified in refusing
payment on others, as in cases where she has
entrusted them to others for nego'iition and tbey
have retained or squandered a good part of the
proceeds?or where her agents have hypothecated
them for much less than their face and been unable
to prevent their sacrifice?or even where those
? gents have actually sold them on a credit, to pur?
chasers who provod dishonest or unable to nay for
them. These cases, it is speciously contended,
form exceptions to the general rale?the State
Hoes not really owe the money, and ought not to
pay it. Let us consider the question.
A State?siay Indiana?deliberately resolves to
establish a State Bank on borrowed capital, or to
embark largely in Internal Improvements. Hei
Legislature passes acts accordingly, authorizes the
issue of bonds and the negotiation of loans, an?'
appoints Commissioners to do the business. The
bonds are executed by the proper authorities, and
put in the hands ef her Commissioners to nego?
tiate. All this is matter of public notoriety.
Each is a solemn promise of the State to pay to
the bolder the principal and interest stipulated
therein. It is not a promise to pay in rase the
!5ank is well managed and makes money, or in
case the internal Improvements prove a profitable
investment?these are the risks voluntarily a?.
sumed by the State, and not imposed by her on
those who may be induced to furnish her with the
means ef ptosocuting her undertakings. She aays
to the whole world. ' Lend us money, and taki
our obligation, payable to any one who may hold it.'
[n this form, being readily negotiable and trans?
ferable, the obligation is more valuable than in any
other, and of course commands n higher price. 1'
i i the interest of the Stato so to i?stie them, even
in view of the fact thai llieii facility may be abused.
Well; the bonds are issued, and voluntarily
transferred by the State's agents to purchasers or
brokers. They are unconditional promises of the
Slate to pay to beater s? much for value
received. For some she has received value;
f .r others she hus taken part pay and pait promi?
ses ; for some her agents may have chosen to take
promises alone. At all events, they are sold, and
thrown into ihe market, atul have per Imps passe I
through rive hundred hands before interest day. It
comes at length, aad the holder steps to the propei
quarter for his interest. He ts met with a rebuff:
"Sir, for this bond we received full consideration,
" and we will pay the interest ; but th.ni/ one was
" bought by a swindler or bankrupt who has kre
" ken his contract to pay for it, or was bypotheca
" ted wdh a broker for a quarter of iis face, and
" sold to cover bis lien?so we shall not pay for it:
"aid this is partly paid for arid partly not; you
"must wail till we boo how we come out with it,
" and we will then tell you whether we ahull pa)
" all, or part, or nothing."?' But,'says the trem?
bling holder, ' I found these solemn promises
' of Indiana to pay so many dollars to the
bearer, floating in the market; I bought them at
' their current value?one the same as another, re
' lying on the pledged fuith of the State : you do
'not deny the promise; I ask its fulfilment: the
'bread of my children, the education of tint orphans
' whose means I have here invested, depend upol
'yuur fidelity. The folly ef your agents in volun
' tarily parting with the bonds for inadequate con
' sideration or on insufficient security, was a mat
' t.er entirely within your discretion and beyond
' mine. Pay me, or give me a chance to establish
' my cluitn in a Court of Justice.'?" Sir," says the
State Treasurer, buttoning up his pocket, ?< l ean";
"he bothered. IIV sold our bonds to rascals, and
" yon must sutler for it. We won't pay, and you
" ean't sue us. Make tracks, and whistle for youi
" money I"?Now it may be that there is a softei
t'rni for this than swindling ; but can any be more
One year ago we would ba\e appealed to the
honor of americans to spurn from them this ab
horrent doctrine of Repudiation in every shape
and form : since the result of the Mississippi Elec?
tion wo can only appeal co Whigs ; and we beseech
them to hear and heed us. We see intimations in
the journals that Whig Senators in Indiana bav<
given countenance to the project of repudiating
those portions of the State Bonds fairly in the
hands of innocent holders, for which no considera?
tion has been realized. If any entertain such h
purpose, we beseech them to renounce th-.- Whig
party forthwith, bill go where their doctrines and
their principles will ensure them a welcome and a
congenial atmosphere. Gladly would we be found
i.i a hopeless minority, and subjected to perpetual
defeat, rather than be tainted with il.e fraternal
breath of Repudiation, and the lasting infamy which
it must entail on all concerned in it. If a Stale
with a population of Seven Hundred Thousand
and a property valuation of Two Hundred Mil
lions, shall deliberately resolve to turn common
s wind terato rid herself of a fraction of her debt ol
Fifteen Millions, we pray that she may at the same
time lake up hei proper place in the ranks of L<>
co-Focoism. and stay there until she shall have be?

assembled in the Tabernacle, where, after an OJe
by the New-York Sacred Music Society and a
Prayer by Rev. Dr. Spri.no, the Annual Oration
was delivered by Prof. C. B. HaDDLtk of Dart?

sis of the distinguishing traits of their common

Fathers were eminently an educated and intel*
I lecttml people, fur before their age in their ideas
of Government, Society, and Freedom in Religion.

envied but deplored.

spirit of fearless Enterprise which carries so many

should govern the adjustment of the Tariff for thi3
The usual number and Ij.OQn extra copies of i e

The Secretary's Fiscal plan as described in the
Message, uas to-day laid before both H .?-.>. aji.i
in the Hons" referred to the select coremitti.c
In the Sen \te several bills were reported;?
tmong which are the following : by Mr. Hu.VTlS ?
tos, iron the Commi'teeon Commerce, mensosing
the pay of revenue officers who Und been ser.i::g
in tiie Navy ; by Mr. Smith of la. lot the ere uion
of u land district in Missouri:; by Mr. Linn, for
the relief of certain companies of Missouri volun
! teers. Various other bills of a private character
wen1 reported ami introduced.
Mr. Linn in pursuance of previous notice intro- ?
duccd a bill to repeal the Uistiibtition Act, and ap-1
proprio? the proceeds of the lands to the military
defences of the country : which having been once
rend, and the question beinj on its reference, an j
interesting debate sprung up continuing for over
two hours, in which many Senators participated.
Mr. Linn recommended the reference to the j
Committee <>u Military Affairs, as this Committee,
baring: in charge the defence of the country, was
prepare! to b>ok into this subject. Mr. S?lTH, of
Indiana, ?* Chairman of the Committee on Public
Land-, could not report favorably on it if sent to
thai Committee. Mr. Calhou.n thought the sub?
ject belonged t? neithei of t.'se above mentioned
Committees, but moved that it be referred t- a Se- j
leci Commttee. Mr. Fierce spoke of the im- 1
parlance of the bill, nnd the great need of appro?
priations f-jr the defence of the country. Mr. Al?
len vehemently advocated the repeal of the Dis?
tribution Act, and the appropriation of the land
proceeds t" the defence of the country. Mr. Pres
ton said, according to the instructions of his State,
tie thought distribution inexpedient and unwise;
and contended thul in the present state of the
country the best defence was to bo found in n
healthful fisc und sound Treasury. Mr. BtJ< has?
an though the reference sboulaV.be made to u Com
mttt-e who would fairly present iho subject to the
American People. The subject ought to be con?
sidered in n financial view, and the reference ought
tobe to the Committee on Finance. He discours?
ed largely on economy, opposing the extravagance
of the Government, und mentioning the proposition
of ihe Post Master General to appropriate about
eight millions to Kail Road Companies for the
transportation of the trail. Messrs. Kino, Bah
kow and W oop ii wry advocated the reference ton
Select Committee. Messrs. MaKGUN and PREN
ri-s said it wus u bill of no details that required
toe examination of any Committee, but was in op
position to the will of the Senate, which will would
most dirr-ctlv be iiscertaitied by n direct vote.

Mr. KiNii then moved the reference to the Com?
mittee on Military Affairs, and Mr. Barrow t.?
the Committee on Finance. Mr. Rives opposed
the reference to any Committee, and called o divi?
sion of the question so us to vote fir-l on the com
mitt in:: of the nill. This was decided it, the nega?

taken by Mr. Linn, styling it a sentiment which
common lioi.esiy, good tuiih, and regard t ? con- ;?

which the highway robber never uttared a broadei
principle of plunder ami rubbery. He com -nde.i
that the Constitution guaranteed to the South equ ?
protection to their labor w th that of the N irtb,
and placed them on the same footing.
Mr. Rayner contended that the tar.rt propose 1
to be raised being for revenur, the subject shouid
go to the Committee of Ways and Means, which
had control of tne subject of Revenue. He sp ike

taining a quantity of butter and bread. He seemed
to act as if it was nil a matter of course.

and let him so fats way. The sovereigns they proba?
bly kept for, their trouble " "I bave.already said
enough today j on another occasion IwilL if you ap?
prove ofthis, give you further proof, and also exa
? mine the standmg of certain Uuirks who stand by to
: rob the felon after he lias robbed the foolish."
It was .-liar^ec. in the indictment, although t ?' -->"???'?

the question was then withdrawn. Witness then
said he did not know who were the editors or pro
prietors of the Sunday Morning News?that there
were 33 to 4U Police Officers and some half a dozen
tiientres m the city. Witness did not discharge any

was to look to .' Mr. Barnett pointed to Mr. Dra| er
aud said they were responsible for what was pub
lisned in tbe.paper The article charged as libellous
was then reaj from the Sunday Morning News?ind
Mr. Bowyer proceeded to give substantially the same
of the arrest of Williams the pickpocket, as was
given by Mr. '!. F. Hays. He added, however,
that Williams offered them $.r>0 to let him go, win. Ii
they refused, and he was convicted anil sent to the
