Col. R- K. Byrd, cf Roane county,
Senator from the Cumberland Moun
tain District, doesn't believe in repu
diation, and in the debate on Satur
day thus expressed himself, which, if
not elegant, ia certainly forcible and to
the point. Mr. RyrJ said he felt deep
ly what he taid ou this subject. lie
wou!d ralher have his arm severed
from his body than see the repudia
tion of the dtbt, with the ruin that
rvould ensue. He hoped the day
would never come when posterity,
passing lils grave, would point the
finger of scorn and tay, ' There lies a
d d old repudiationist." lie wanted
to record himself a Jcfferdonian Demo
crat, aad his view of the obligation of
his office would prevent him from
voting to refer this question to a popu
Gov. Makes has plainly recom
mended the repudiation of tho greater
portion of the bonded debt of the
State of Tennetsee, and in accord with
his views, Mr. Savage has introduced
a bill into the Senate to submit to the
people the question of compromise or
repudiation. His biil proposes three
alternatives, and that the tickets shall
be Inscribed "Fifty Cents, "Oje
Third," and " NotbiDg." Either must
receive a majority of all the votes cast
to be final, but the language of the
bill combines the two last agaiuet the
first. It does this by saying that if
"One Third" or "Nothing" do not
receive a majority cf the votes cast
that "the liext General Aesembly
shall adopt so much of the two as sbal
appear most in accord with the wishes
of the people." That is, If ".Nothing'
receive two-thirds of 100,000 votes and
"One-third" a third, then the dtbi
shall be compromised at one-third of
one-third of the amount. Piainly,
if the debt Is $24 000,000, one
third would be SS.OOO.GCO, and
under Mr. Savage's plan, and
vote as above, the next General As
sembly would offer the bondholders of
the State one-third of SS.CCO .000. beirjg
about $2 C66.000. From the character
of the Legislature, as indicated by its
acts bo far, there is little doubt but the
bill will pass and become a law,bowever
devoid of truth may be its allegations
and of honesty and good faith its con
sequences. Will the passage of this law and the
consequent virtual repudiation of the
State debt benefit either rich or poor ?
Every sensible man knows
that it will ruin our good
name abroad; that it will com
mence an era of distrust at home, that
it will end in attempted repudiation
cf city, county, town and private in
debtedness, which will paralyze in
dustry and set back our State in civ
Uizitlon and progress. It would be
ell if it could be set back to the hon
esty of Jackson's" day, as well as placed
therein material development.

Stores. Laid on the table, the bill

called for the purpose of acting on

did not take place, there being less
than a quorum present. None of

The Democratic Senators held
a caucus tnis morning to consider
what course to pursue on the reso
lution of Senator Edmunds, now
pending in the Senate, in relation
to the enforcement of the Thir
teenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth
Amendments, and to protect all
citizens in exercise of all rights se
cured by laws passed for that pur
pose, &c. The Democratic benators
agreed upon a substitute lor the
above named resolution, to be offered
when it shall be taken up for con
sideration in tho Senate. While in
this substitute they admit the Thir
teenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth
Amendments to the Constitution to be
of binding force and validity,
they regard Senator Edmund's res
olution as proposing legislative ac
tion in conflict with tho decisions
of the Supreme Court of the
United States, particularly in the
Crinkshank case. Regarding these
amendments they quote from the
Dieta of the Court to sustain the
ground which will be taken in the
substitute that the United States
have no citizens distinctly their own,
that the Constitution does not con
fer the right to vote on any one,
but simply confers the pmilage
of freedom from any discrimina
tion on account of race, color or
previous condition, and that the
regulation of sufferage beloDgs ex
clusively to tho several States.
