Friday Morning, April 21st, 1876.
Death of Col. L. S. Myers,
for a day or two prior to the 14th
instant, serious ttars were expressed as
to the result of the illness of Col. Myers,
who had been sick bat a few days, but
..tbe community were not prepared for
the startling announcement on the even
ing of Friday that he was no more.
A gloom that is impossible to describe,
a shadow more akin to blackness than
uuosi any our community naa ever
known, seemed to hare settled npon ey
ry one a shadow and gloom that could
have been caused by nothing gave the
death of a man so universally respected,
admired and loved respected and ad
mired for the purity of his life, the mag
nitude of his intellect, and the unmatch
ed versatility ot his talent loved for his
real nobleness of nature.
Colonel Myers was born in Sumpter
County, Alabama, on the 20th of May
1820, and hence would have been fifty
six years of age in a little while. During
his early life he receivedjsuch instruction
as the schools in the country in which he
lived afforded, and as he approached
manhood was sent to college at Knox-,
ville, where he graduated, and from
whence he came directly to Columbia,
and Commenced the practice of the law,
a profession which he has indeed adorn
ed. He studied law under Judge Dilla
hunty, and soon thereafter became a part
ner of the late and honored Chancellor ,
6, D. Prierson. After this partnership
ceased to exist, he associated with him in
the practice Col. George Gantt, now of
Memphis. During the "midnight'' that
enveloped this country from 1861 to
April, 1865, he was an ardent and active
supporter of the Southern cause. But
when the result at Appomattox was her
alded to the world, with a frankness and
manliness that was eminently character
istic, he accepted the verdiot as pro
nounced by that cold and cruel arbiter,
the sword, and instead of fruitless repin
ing over a cause that his clear brain
forced him to admit was forever dead, he
at once resumed the practice of his pro
fession, and succeeded as he only can
who brings into tbe contest an almost
matchless mental and physical activity,
unbending integrity, and a nature full to
overflowing with the milk of human kind
ness. Col. Myers was a man the periphery of
hoss life touched almost every interest
of the community. A lawyer in full
practice, President of one of our banks,
and largely interested in agriculture, he
knew the hearts, had the hearts, and felt
the wants of our people to an extraordi
nary degree- His position upon all ques
tions o' public concern, was as clear as
the full day.
His death was mo"? than ordinarily
distressing, from the fact that be was cut
down in the full flush of his career. Hie
fine intellect and vigorous physical na
ture were indeed at their "very merid-
and it is very hard to realize that
lie who but a few days ago was as a giant
in our midst.has gone to appear at the bar
of the Eternal Giver ot Justice. "Vivit
post funera virtus.''
To the Editor of the Herald qjtd MaiU
Fanks is entirely too modest; unlike
most great inventors, he is reluctant to
claim that to which he is justly entitled,
and does himself the great injustice ot
giving Washington, Jefferson, &c., cred
it for originating his repudiation scheme
Thev were not onlv Quite innocent of
any such delightful plan of meeting pub
lie obligations, but, horrible to relate, they
actually passed the first Jundiug bill
known to the United States! They were
poor, old-fashioned cieatures anyway,
these revolutionary ancestors of ours, for
in studying their writings we find great
tress laid on such obsolete topics as
"Honor,'' "State credit,'" "rights of pub
lie creditors.'' "duties ot a State to her
creditors," and such-like foolish matters.
But to speak seriously, Mr. Editor,
I know that Fanks would not wilfully
misrepresent or ignore the truth. Nev
ertheless, his assertion that Washington,
Jefferson, Hamilton, &c, were repudia
tors. is totally and crossly at variance
with the facts of history. I can hardly
believe Fanks is ignorant of the facts I
am Eoinz to state, as they constitute the
Terr Drimer of our political history. I
im beach him therefore of the most inex
cusable carelessness in not better refresh
ior his memory before he proceeded to
handle liehtlv the names of such men in
connection with a subject so fraught with
dancer to all our best interests as this of
Repudiation. He says that Washington,
Jefferson, Ac-, rel-udiated the continen
tal monev. Evcrv pace of the history of
the times refutes this assertion. They
did all in their power to uphold it and
keep it in circulation, but like our own
Confederate money it went doio n in spite
them and sank by its own weight
1708, two years bejore the end of the war,
But there was a debt, which const i
tates an exact parallel to the State debt
of Tennessee, hanging over the new con
federation, when Washington took his
seat as President in 1789. The Uuitcd
States owed a war debt of fortytwo mil'
lionsoi dollars, made up by accrued in
terest to fifty-four millions. It was
worth about one-sixth of its nominal val
ve. In nearly every case it had passed
cat of the hands of the original holders,
These points were made and fully argued,
for there were repudiators also in those
days, though the honored names I have
mentioned were not among them. The
debt was heavitr in proportion to the pop
ulation and wealth of the United States
than is ours to the resources of Tenues
tee, Yet in Irving's Life of Washington
we read that of all the important ques
tions arisiug for consideration by his gov
ernment: Ihe support ot public credit
"was the one which Washington had
"more immediately at heart. The gov-.
"eminent was now organized, apparently
to tbe satisfaction ot all parties: but its
efficiency would depend on the success
of a measure which Washington had
pledged himself to institute and which
Vol yet to be tried; namely, a system of
finance adapted to revive the National

Hamilton, then Secretary of the Treas
ury, in a very able report to Congress,
gave the outlines of a funding bill which
was passed by the personal efforts of
Jefferson and approved by Washington.
K7 more, the United States not only
funded her own debt but assumed twenty
ena and a half millions of the debts of the
everal States, at the same time and by
tha same act of congress. Was this re

Marshall tells us that: "The effects pro

Fanx appears to have a very high re
spect tor our revolutionary ancestors. I
commend to hit tearful consideration the
following pasiiage ' from Washington's
"As a verjj important source of

Now I asssrj: that the interest on our

present rate of taxation a proper enforce

er portion off alt the present very low rate
of State taxation and that a prudent
and thorough revision of those laws, back
ed by a healthy public sentiment, will en
able us to pay it in full and keep the tax
at forty cents) on the hundred dollars.
Every honest nfan will be benefited by
the strict enfoijcenient of those laws. As
matters now stand, it is notorious that
hundreds of unscrupulous men evade the
payment' of any taxes whatever
thousands escape the greater part of
theirs through defects in the laws or weak-
execution. But even if it

Beply to Fanks.
To the Editor fthe Herald od Mail:
A writer In your paper signing himself
"Fanks," seeks to Justify repudiation of the
Blate debt by parading the entire taxation
of the country, Federal State, county, muni
cipal. He places the Federal taxes at 811,67
per head, and the local at S7.2I per head,
making in all S1H.91 per head. To show how
little he knows about making calculations
It may be stated that after giving $11.67 hs
the amount of Federal taxation, which in
cludes the payment oflnterest on tbe Na
tional debt, he adds 84.50 per head for the
payment oi interest on the Rational debt,
thus counting It all and he also adds one
t'ollar per head to meet the interest on our
State debt, when it will not. take anything
like that amount in addition to what is now
levied in which he has counted in bis 87.24
per head as local taxation. In fact, wiat has
the Federal taxt and the taxes of the cilies
of New York, B ston or Chicago to do with
our state debt or state tuxes? The National
debt ev-ry Inau o: sense knows it mu&t and

Aside from thecrying evil of repudiation
In itself considered: and lts'dlsastrous conse
quences as regards tbe Integrity and honor
of our common weaitn, we noia mat me ser
ious agitation of tbe subject In the coming
State canvass will have a most injurious ef
fect upon the prospects of the National dem
ocratic party in the Presidential raee.
We believe that little argument Is neces
sary to show to thinking men that this
proposition is true. It cannot be denied that
the democratic party bases its hope ol sao
cess in the Presidential canvass, in a large
measure upon the support which It will re
ceive from the liberal and conservative re
publicans, who di!uted with the rotten
Mess and corruption of the present party lu
power, are willing to unite In an enort to
re-establish au administration of honesty
and reform. And it is a self-evident prop
osition that In order to secure a triumph, it
is absolutely necessary for the democratic
party to secure and retain, by a fair, honest
and judicious policy, tbe confidence of the
country. Now Tennessee Is a democratic
State. With an overwhelming democratic
majority In her Legislature, she may be re
graded as representative of the National
democratic party. Her legislation and her
conduct in politics must necessarily reflect
upon the National party. Her action will
be severely criticised by her political op
ponents, and will be used as a strong ar
gument in the coming canvass.
The republican leaders are shrewd and
designing, and will hold np the action of
Tennessee democracy as a fair sample of
what the country may expect of the par
ty. Suppose then any number of her influ
ential men begin to advocate repudiation In
Tennessee, will not such men as Blaine and
Morton, with good reason, too, warn the
country of a party which tolerates such
opinions? And may It not be an easy task
r tnem to induce 1 1 1 n u I I to sees: re
form in the republican party rather than
incur the risk of national repudiation and
a nation's dishonor?
Whenever the democracy of Tennessee
nits a repudiation plank in Its platform.
furnishes a powerful and effective com-
paign document to the radicals.
These considerations, which we admit are
of minor importance to the great princl-
f iles which underlie the question, should at
east have influence enough to cause our
people to pronounce against repudiation in
a any form, at auy rate for the present.
Dr Red field, in aVecent letter to the Cin
cinnati Commercial, Claims to have found a
negro who is thoroughly convinced that he
has a '-mission" to perform in this world.
This Individual is G. S. Smith, who made a
stunning speech at the national colored con
vention last week in Nashville. Smith be
lieves that Africa Is the true home of the
negro race, and he proposes that the whole
colored population of the United States
shall speedily emigrate thither. After
Smith had concluded his eloquent speech
on Africa, a large number of the delegates
exhibited their lack of sympathy by saying
with some vehemence aD Africa! if
Smith wants to go, : let him; we'll stay In
America." It is possible that this is the
feeling of the majority of American negroes.
They have no fondness for Liberlan emi
gration, where everything has been organi
zed for their benflt. That republic lies in too
close proximity to the Oreboes and other
nncoutli savages There is hope, however,
for Smith s scheme if M. Dcponchki., an
enterprising Frenchman, carries ont his
plan of blullding a grand trunk railroad
through Central Africa. We advise the
colored brother to await the completion of
the "trunk, line," and then take possession
of the country by such vehicular menns as

honored father of Prof. Henry Y. Weissin
ger, in the 75th year of his age. He died at
t he residence of his son, in this place, on
Thursday night the 13th Inst. He was a na
tive of (ieorgia, but at an early day removed
to Alabama, and settled in Peny county.
For nearly half a century he was a citizen
of Marion, the county-seat of said county,
where be was ever most highly esteemed,
having been several times elected to the
state Legislature and to other offices of
trust and honor. He was for many years
connected with the press, as the political
editor of some of the ablest papers In the
State, a position which he was eminently
qualified to adorn. He was an ardent admir
er of John C. Calhoun, and was on terms of
intimate friendship with that great leader.
The wrlterof this humble tribute, has met
with Mr. Calhoun while a guest at the hos
pitable mansion of Mr. Weissinger, and
has been a witness ot their reciprocal feel

affection were to be severed, there was ten

While this is the language of kindness
and affection, it shows the estimate In
which Mr. Weissinger was held by his old
