Our able and excellent Rally Hill
correspondent ftpeaks in his last com
munication of Mr. Jefferson ad the ad
vocate of the non-payment of public
debt that had existed more than
thirty years. He entirely misappre
hend the drift of Mr. Jefferson's opin
ion on this eubject, Mr. Jefferson
never did, on any occasion, advocate
the non-payment of a debt once con
tracted, but he contended in bin cele
brated letter to Mr. Madiaoo, dated
Sept. 6th, 1789, that all future debt
should be limited by the constitution
to the generation which contracted
them. He was for guarding agains
debt of long contttiuancein the future,
and did not onoa intimate that debt
which had already been contracted, !
could be repudiated. In that letter ht
aid: "With respect to future debts.
would it not be wise and just for thai
nation, (France) to declare In the con
stitution they are forming, that neithei
the Legislature nor the nation itself,
can validly contract more debts thai
they may pay within their own agr ,
or within the term of 34 years am
taat tM future contract! shall be deem
ed void as to what shall remain un
paid at the end of 34 years from theii
date? ThL would put the lenders ant
the borrowers on their guard." Oui
debt ha not been made 34 yean, anc.
does not come within the rule laid
down by Jefferson, even if It were as
contended by the advocates of Itepudi
aUoa. To nhow what he tboutrht
about the payment of public debts, we
give another eentence from the tanit
lettor to Mr. Madison. "So nation,"
fsia Mr. jenerrtou, "can make a
declaration aguinet long contracted
debw a. difintorwtedly we, bbict
we do tot owe a (hilling which wiU
not be paid, principal and in
terest, by the nvaaure you hove taken.
within our life tim3. In a letter to
John W.- Kppon, daU.d June 14tfi,
1813, he tld: "Had any loan takei.
place la my time, I would etroogly
urged a redeeming tax." In a letter
to John Jay, dated Sept. 10th, 17S9,
lie said: 1 'Tbo treasury board have no
doubt attendxl to the nocenjity of giv
ing timely orders for the payment ol
the February interest at Amsterdam.
I am informed that our creiit ia now
the firt at that Exchange, (England
not borrowing at present). Our five
per cent, honda have rien t-J 97 and
99. They have heretofore been ninety
throe." Tbeee extracte, and many
more such, might be given ghowiufe
that Mr. Jefferson had a high appre
ciation of public credit, and that ht
never advocated the repudiation of a
debt w hich bad been contracted.

John T. Williamson, Mayor, Dear
Sir: I see iu this morning's paper that
Jeorge Roper of Columbiana, Ala
ama, was hanged in your town on
.tie 27th iutt. As the manner in
which he was hanged is condemned
by people at a distance, who are no
acquainted with the circumstance
and the character of the party thus
summarily dealt with, I will give
you a brief statement of George's past
aistory. I resided in Columbiana for
sjveral years, prior to November 187G,
aud was well acquainted with his
cuaractorup to tiiat time. Repeated
complaints were made to me, as Solic
itor of Bhelby County, asrainut him for
violations of tha criminal law. He
ivas several times tried anu couvicie
tor crime. He seemed to have a uat
ural antipathy for the white race. 1
;iave heard him 6ay, while iaarreiiuiy
witli white men, that "ho cidu't tcai
jiny d-d white man," or words to that
eftect. The laot time he was convictoci
for crime was in the County Court oi
."jhelby County, for whipping a smal
white b-jy in the streets of Columbiana
with u ox whip, to gratify a past
srrud?e. For this onence.he was sen
tenced to a term of months in the
County jail, and ou entering the jail he
remarked. "I am put iu jail for noth
ing thi time, when I get out I will do
something to be put in jail for."
When about fifteen or sixteenreais
old, he had a fight with one of the
leading men of the town in a private
yard, at whom he threw a stick, and
struck the lady of the house on tht
head, inflicting a serious and painful
wouud.ThefeHreeomcof hlsacts, which
vviil Kuilice to give an idea of his char
icter. No oue who was well acquain
ted with him will be surprised at hit
fate, as it was the opinion of all who
tnew him that he would come to some
had end. He was about nineteen
years old, weighed about one hundred
and thirty-five or forty pounds, syru
metrical in form, very 6tout and ac
tive, with smooth features and a sul
len expression, and did not fear any
m m. His mother is Caroline Gib
of Columbiana, Alabama. Very Tru
ly, D. T Castlekekky.

The most sanguine ecarchor for
oreak in the Solid South must admit
that tiie outlook io not promising. In
dl of the State where independent
movemeuts were started the advocate
of them have been bullied into quiea
ceuce by the shouts and threat of the
uouroons. At present there ia not a
-rack to be ween anywhere. The whole
section stands as one man for out-and
out Democratic men and princinles.
Fhrthermore, it stands aa one man for
unlimited uUver, tor the indefinite
postponement of resumption, for the
reduction of the army, for eub? idie,
and for unlimited appropriation for
internal improvement. There is here
and there a newspaper in tbe South
which favors boneat finance, but it 1
as the voice of oue crying In the wil
derness. This is asolidifA indeed, but
if the rett of the country fully realizes
what it means there w ill be a mill

openly avow their belief that the plans
for such a cw cTrtat were long ago

fortable, and sufficiently warm. We
examined tbe prisoners, and question
ed them. They report that they are
well fed and provided for. Mr. Da

prifoners are brought to jail infected
with vermin, aud having i;o change
of clothing, at times, they have body
lice among them. We recommend
that prisoners who, from appearances.
may lie suspected of having vermin or
iKxiy-iice uhu them, ie required to
bathe, aud that they be given a new
suit of clothes. We find at this time
in tbe juil, twenty-eight prisoners.
