Repudiation—Where it Will Lead.
[From the Chillicothe Advertiser, January 7.]
We regret to see that the Columbus Cri
sis and Bucvrus Forum, both hitherto able
i Democratic journals, have stepped off the
uemocrauc piaiiorm and come out, in aa
vocacy of repudiation. A national desire
to punish tne grasping and avaricious
bondholder for refusing to accept wbat be
U entitled to under tbe letter and spirit of
the law. mav in a manner excuse this
action on tbe part of these papers; but
bave tbey stopped ' to consider mac re
pudiation is a two-edged instrument
which would cut In different directions.
The bondholder would lose his money and
the Republic would lose its reputation for
honesty and its credit. A man may be in
-debt, and place his property out of his
hands, and lauch at his creditor when .his
' bill is presented. The creditor loses ' bis
money ana tneaeotor his character, wnicn
should be worth more to- him than the
'. money he has made by his roguery.
it does not do to plead as an argument
for repuoauon tnat tne great duik oi tne
debt Is the result of wat :ful extravaga ice
or even direct tbieverv. ft was contracted in
the name of tne American people, by the le
gitimate authority, properly elected and
vested by the Constitution with the r'ght to
act in their name. As well might a profli
gate spendthrift refuse to pay his debts be
cause mey7 were, contracted in oe
bauchery and drunkenness. It Is I
penalty that the people must pay for
their. : criminal ': lack of judgment
in placing tbe government in the bands of
.pro Ulgates and plunders, witnout inquiry
as to the manner In which the money was
spent, if teas obtained on the faith of the gov
ernment. Of tne properly constituted an
'thorl ties, and bv repudiating It, every eltl
zen beintran Integral Dart of tbe govern-
, nient, will be a sharer in the disgrace.,. If
the agents who Contracted the debt were
properly empowered to contract it, we are
as honorably bound to pay it as we are
pay debts of our personal contracting. We
are not speaking in a party sense, but
tbe -people as a whole; tne itepuDiican
party being bound by . tbe. action of the
Government in Democratic hands, as the
j Democratic party ia bound by the action of
the Government in Republican hands. To
a limited. extent the Whig party, which
"cume into power Immediately alter- tbe
1 Mexican war, which was conducted by
, Democratic , Administration, might have
found excuses for the repudiation of that
debt, but tbe entire Democratic party an
. tbe country, would bave been startled at
such a proposition. , . , . .
If repudiation is inaugurated as a method
of paying our debts, bave the friends of the
system, considered where it would lead?
If we should regain power at the close of
-tirant's term, ana then repudiate tne oeDts
contracted during tne toree preceding aa
ministrations, the nextadmlnlstratton may
be against us, and having similar grounds
dissatlsfsction, may cancel the aeDtsoi our
, term bv the same short , method, and we
' would then have the pleasant spectacle of
' a government or parties, eacn one Tepuai
ating the contracts of the other. And: Its
in lection would bo caught by. the people.
' It the government can repudiate, why
not the people, - would- be the question
asked in all business circles, and, national
, and business honor and credit would soon
vanish from the Republic. "
We don't want the great name of De
mocracy tarnished witn repudiation. ve
would be hanett t We would be just 1 Na
' tlon,'-like Individuals, should pay their
dents ; and like individuals tney snouio oe
scrupulous and exacting in paying no more
than the letter of tbe bond. - '1 be Consti-
)tbtion has wisely reserved to Congress the
power io luruEHlfl cudubuh wuivu arts uu-
preseive and unjust to . the people, and
, here is tbe remedy to annul tne advan
tages which the grasping " bondholder
' may - reap"-through-.- Radical legisla
tion in his favor. .Let the , Demo
cratic party give solemn warning to the
'bondholders and capitalists of the country,
that they intend - to pay tbe debt according
to contract, and in no other way. .That they
will pay gold where stipulated, and paper
money or its equivalent when named in the
bond, and that if Congress passes tbe in
famous funding bill, or any other swindling
scheme to give gold to tbe bondholder In
stead of paper, that it will be the first duty
of the first Democratic : Congress to
annul such legislation, and take such ac
tion as shall literally comply with the letter
of the law under which the debt was con-
itracted. -lot .the-face of this warning, it
capitalists invest in new gold bonds to take
tbe place of old paper ones, they cannot
complain when the Government reduces
. them to toe old paper value. , -

The Senatorial Fight in Missouri.
ST. LOUIS, Jan. 8.
'A general caucus of the Missouri Lee is
lature was held at Jefferson City, Jast
night, to bear uens.scburz and Loan, can
didates for tbe United States Senatorshlp,
denne their positions, ine caucus turned
outtobea mass meeting and was largely
attended by citizens generally as well as
members. Uenerai ixan being unwell
was not present. Tbe discussion was in
tended mainly to give General Schurz an
opportunity to reply to tbe charges of bis
opponents, that he is in favor of immedi
ately enfranchising rebels and turning the
State over to the hands of tbe enemy". A
special gives the following account of the
proceedings 01 tne meeting. -.
Gen. Schurz distinctly denied the above
charge, and stated that be was astonished
at It after so frequently and emphatically
declaring his position on tbe question. He
divided the question into two parts, Fed
eral and State, and in the United States
Senate, he would support tbe following
amendments : First, General suffrage, witb
out distinction of color or previous condi
tion, out recognizing tbe right ol a state to
disfranchise on account of felony or rebel
lion ; Second, An amendment to reduce
everv rebellious State to a territorial con
dition. So far as Missouri was concerned
negro suffrage was a justice done to the
negro, and rebel suffrage was a grace to be
doue to tbe disloyal. He was first for jus
tice and second lor grace, lie was lor re
pealing .the disfranchisement - act only
after negro suffrage was adopted.. He
ridiculed tbe Constitutional performances
of Drake. & Company, and said had he been
a member ot tbe Convention he never
would bave consented to make enfranchise
ment easier than negro suffrage, as tbe
Drake Constitution did. He severely criti
cized both S nators Drake and Henderson
for leaving Washington at so critical a mo
ment, only for the. purpose of defeating
him. He stigmatized the charges made
against him aa wilful lies.- He declared
that be bad never belonged to any ring,
and treated the subject ot patronage of no
consequence to hini. He concluded by ob
serving that his name was Known far and
wide, and never bad a Senatorial election
commanded so much attention both in
America and Europe as this one bad. He
believed his election would greatly encour
age immigration to this country and State.
General Loan not being present. Mr.
Drake was invited to speak. He said be
could not be expected to reply off-hand to
a well prepared - speech, assailing so vio
lently, out ce onerea to answer at some
time, whereupon the caucus invited him to
name tbe day. .Before sitting down. Mr.
Drake made some very bitter remarks
against General Schurz striking bard blows,
and saying that be would show in bis re
sponse whose heart best answers tbe pulsa
tions or the great naoicaj party. ,
Mr. Henderson was then called upon and
spoke, ridiculing many of the remarks of
General Schurz, advocating bis owu elec
tion, and making a stronir effort in behalf
ot the repeal of the disfranchisement act.

Turkish ambassador at Paris. A part of
these instructions are that if discussions in
the conference extend beyond the Turkish
ultimatum to Greece that the Turkish rep
resentative shall immediately withdraw.
The Turque says if the Turkish represen
ts ive withdraws war with Greece is Inev
itable. . , '. ' '
