COMMUNICATD.)
Concluded from last mio,r.
I propose now to throw out a few suggestions
n relation to the difierent phases the question of
repudiation assumed at the aforesaid rgeting,
or Ohe c(nsideration of the peop!e, uitil the
ine for the election of mieibers to the Legis
Lure arrives. 1. Shall all debts be repudiated ?
[ say no:.and for the followi-nyr, ieasons : Fir.t
bccause that part of the consiLution of tie United
States which says that no state shall pass any ex
port facto law, or any law impiring the obliga
ion of coutracts, foidi it. Why unlcrtake to
do that which the Government of the United
S-atcs, which controls us, deciares we shall not
do ? Would it not be worse than idle to attempt
it?. Secndly, because it would not be honest
to do it if we could. It would damn our char3c
ter as a people forever in the eyes of the world.
0%r credit would be fore!ver gone. Tlat
confidence in each other which is. the
main stay of ' society would Le forever
banished. It would create ill feeling and
strife in crcry neighborhood rnd in almost every
family, whereas if the opposite course is pursiud,
that is, require ei cry inan to'pay his honest debts,
but wait with him and let him iay a litt e along
irs he can, -and, if necessary, pass a stay law, and.
keep it in force as long as the good of the people
require it; do tli, I say, and larniony and good
celing will prevail and the country become much
more prosperous,than to lock up the lands in the
bands of the present owners. if L lav.e loaned
mny neiglhor my .money or sold him my property
Id have his note for it, and the collection of that
rote wolld break him up, and the non-collection
>f it woul- break ine up, which should be done ?
Let him give me back my money or property as
ie case mhy be and suffer; or alow him to keep
t and I sutffer ? There. can be no two opinions on
tiis.questiou by disintercsted minds. Thii-dly,
5ccause it Vo;uld bankrupt all the estates. of de
leased persons n:hich WRve been sold,' and thou
ands of minor children who have no father or
rother to take. care of then, ani who are too
oung to take care of themselves, and !nust there
ore, be sent to the poor house er turned out o.n
he cold charities qf the worl+ to starve, while
heir rich guardians rv-e li*ing in ease and cle
nance upon property which their money bought.
Is there A man in Newberry District who is so
bound up in selfishness as to have a heart to do
Ihis ?* If so be would be a fit companion for La
1v Macbeth, and could join her in s'entiment in
ayi4ig "I have given suekand know how tender
tis to love the babe that milks me ; I would while
t was smiling in my face, have plu.k'd py nip
ples from his boneless gums, and dashed the
irains out, if by so doing I could gigin hisestate."
our/lb, because'it-ivill enable 'persons to keep
property'which they still owe for, and not be re
juired to pay for 'it, ivhich is contrary tb all
Lhe principles of honor and hoiesty. Th'e other
proposition is not'to repudiate the debts, but -9
xempt the lands from liability for debts Which
is, in effect, repudiation, so far as lands are con
erned, alid they are the principal 'part of our
propcrty now.. If this is done will it benfit the
debtor while the rest of his property is liable tQ
ley and sale ? No ; for the obvious reason that
wlhen the -lheriff sells all his other- prope.ty, his
provisionlz horses, nules, co*s, hogs, and plan
tation too',' he cannot culti*tte his land. But I
bave heard it said, in answer to this, that lie can
wil some of Lis lands and buy nore provisions,
orses, &e. This also will be liable to levy and
;ale, and -s often as he Aold part.of his lands and
purehafeoher ,roperty, wi* the proeeds, the
dheriff would sell him out until his debts were Ill1
aid or his-land all gone. How ten could this
xeRptiou of laud from sale benefit the debtor
ithout you exempt othrer pIroperty with it ? It
will not only not benefit the craditor, but it. will
nippt.e the energies of the country, by keeping
the hinds in the hands of individuals who camiot
ultivate them. -If* the law is passed, exeinpting
lnds from liability for debts, it must either al
ow'.he owner to sell threm himiselfor'forbid the
ale.of them.even by thte .owner. If you allow.
he owrner to sell them h'e will not do so. for the
>bvions yeason that tIhe proceeds would beliable
For his debts and could be reachcd by ca. si., so
Lhat in either case the owner either could not or
would not sell his-lands,and they would be locked
ap in thre hands of the..present owners, whether
:hy can cultivate them to advainage or not, and
svery man who does not own lands now will have*
:o leave The state and seek a home in anther
tate, or becomed the- tenant of these -larg;e .land
>wers, with the negroes.: Are you, fellow' citi
cns, prepamed to drive from your borders-all the
ioung nren of the countrZ who have no Panda,.
ut are full of energy amfenierprise, oi' compel
:emn to become ten;ants with your formcr slaves?
f not, stay your hands in this matter. Many-of
he young muen wh for the last four years ha've
ought.thie battle tIhe south and sacrificed
~heir all upon the' tars of the country. have heot
i~ foot of land. Will you pass iwrs to- prevent
%me8 brave men from having part of die ve1'y
toil they fo:ught for ? if so, I ask where is your
patriotem ?. Is it sallowed u$ in, youir- selfish
tess? In gJe name of common serrse arc we irot
1gaced enough already without heap'-ng this
iddiional dis;ga.ceion ourlheads? 'It wouldi be
nuch more equitable to repudiate all debts anid
: divide out the- property equally than to exempt
.he lands from debts in the hands of ite present
>wer., for many of them are rich in kiids, p~art
y made by s.peculartion during the war or' the
:accssi.tiOs of-the country.
A CITIZEN
The Constitution of Virginia, under the re
b,r:ed G,ovrnment,' differs frem -theireini"ra
Oristituttion.of,1851 much less than is- generally
mppose.d. The changes,.heowever imiportant: 4re,C
20t iimerous. -In the code of V irginia, zais

With these.preliminaries5 we att once' con'sider

Utileif,9 qalfiatteof vters, nthe
lesidence prereq1uisi;~te toutng is re.ddeed to
>ae ear in the- State and six ruun'hs in t!te coin'
y,.elty or town.. Bu - great and imuportanrt
hange consists of two ts, namely (disfraud.ise
nent of voters and -disabilitv for ofhce-holding,
y reason of participation iii tIhe re?belion. All
yersons are disfranchised who, since theL first day.
>f Jaguary, 1864, have "vo'untarily 'given aid or
sssaned, in any way, to those in gebelliona
gainst the G,.verinent of the United iStates,
r the purpose of pronroting the same." The
~egislature havme power to relie've from this pri
tion aud.restore tire right of franrchi-e, "when,
netleir opinion, it will be safe to do' so." Mc
ordingly, tihe Legislature, by Act of the 2gd
ue, 1865, in extra session at R~ichmrond,, re
tored the franchise to all thiose dep4ived as afore
aid, who clould tak~e the oaths thereiin prescenb
d, to vwit; that in the Khmesty Pr'oclamation of
residdnt Johinson of the. 9th May, 185 and

iisemenctt df votecr, tIhe mot irmarkable~ par of
terms, "vote or nold office under this Constitu
tion who has held ofli-e undcr the so-called Con
federate Government, or under any rebellions
State GoverNment. or who has been a member of
the so-called Confcderate Congress, or a member
of any State Legislatur.- in rebellion against the
authority of the United St.atcs, excepting there
from county officers." This proscription and im
practicable rule will, doubtless, be expunged at
an early day. It is im possible to coutinue such a
provislon among the people who atre recognized
as loyal, and who claii a Republican Govern
ment. The reason and necessity of such a pro
scription, if ever of sufficient e.pgency, have whol
ly ceased; and the Executive and the Legilature
have united in commending and promoting its
abrogation. The Legislature, at the extra ses
sion above-mentioned, by an Act passed on the
21st day of June, 18G5, entitled "An Xet to pro
vide for the amendent of the third aricle of
the Constitution," invested the Governor with
discretion to ascrtain the sense of the qualified
voters on the propositioi to empower the .next.
General Assembly to cmend the third article of
the Constitution--that which imposes the disfran
chisement and disabilities-so that, in virtue .of
-the high authority thus kivoked and exercised,
the loyal people of the State may be completely
rehabilitated. This iesult is so nedessary and wise
that we must soon wit.ness its consummation.. In
this event, Article III of the old Constitution,
will be substantially ifnot literAlly restored.
Article IV-legislative department -has un der
gone several and considerable -changes. They
are mainly the results or incidents of the . war,
in the midst of which the new Constitutioiwas
proolaimed. Such as arise from the disseverance
of the Old Donilnion and the.abolition of slavery
will. be readily understood. The-AlexandriaCon
stitution declares that the Rouse- of Delegates
shall consist of not less than eighty and noa more
than one hun red and four members, andthe
Senate of a nber not less than one:-third . and
not more than one-half the num1er of the House.
It apportions representation in the 3e and
Senate among the counties and cities pro
vides forfuture re-apportionment in 0, and
decennially thereifter, in an enumeration of the
inhabitants of the State. The G Assembly
is .to meet annually. In*this ts ons 19,
24) and 21 of -the former Con , headed
."saveiand free negroes," have beei' substituted
in the new by sections headed "slavery or free
dom," declaring,. shwery abolished and forever
prohibited. - Another section relaVs to the pub
i debt and, its apportionient between-Virginia,
and West Viiginia. It declares -that no ordi
nance of the Wheeling Convention-adjsting the
Sdebt between the two shall be binding..on - this
State. Another section of this article. prohibits
the Legislature fr6n paying any debt or . obli'a
tior'incurred-by the rebellious State authorities
at Richriond. It also forbids any county, city
or corporation to.levy or -collect any tax to pay
any debts created in aid of - the rebellion.. The
sinking fund created and regulated by the 29th
section of the former Constitution, appears to be
entirely omitted from the new. Instead of that,
the 29th section of the new Cdnstitution provides
that no debt sh;afl-be contracted by the State, ck
