'Hou. Edwin M. Stanton is dead,
' were the words wbicb, a few doyt
feiace, flt.hed over the wires th
length and lircadtli of tbc land. Sad
Vkr or more unexpected tiding
could not Lave teen anticipated. No
other public man had r stronger Lol l
upon the popular heart, or possessed
to a greater extent popular confi
dcccc. Of tboee who figured in the
greatest war of modern times, none
will occupy a more prominent place
in history than Edwin M. Stanton
. There were, perhaps, abler states
. men, but no purtr p itriota. He hap
- lived to seethe nation which he toiled
m nve eniovin? the b!e6Einis of
pc&ce. We find the following briel
notice of his life and just tribute to
liis memory in the Cleveland Leader;
Kiwin M. Stanton, the great War
Secretary, the organizer ot victory in
tiio greatest war of modern times,the
:omper of Lincoln and Graut in the
lMtpula.r heart, was born in Columbi
una countj', Ohio, on the llkh of
December, 1851, and ww, therefore,
' at the time of his death just past the
. age of fi:ty-four. He spent his early
. liie in the State of Ohio, graduating
, ut Miami University, and settling for
the practice of law. which profession
be entered in ls3t, at Meuoenvme,
lie soon acquired a very wide repu
tation and a very extended practice,
and removed to Pittsburg in 1848.
Among his first cases in Pittsburg
was the famous
nuit, and his masterly conduct of it
i.l seed him at once in the general
estimation among the first lawyers of
the country. From this time until,
' in 1860, he was called into the Cabi
net of President Buchanan, his life
was almost entirely devoted to his
profession. He removed, in 1854 we
believe, to Washington, where much
of his legal practice was, and re
mained there most of the time until
the breaking out of the rebellion.
In 1859 he was the counsel ot Uen-
;ral (then Congressman) Sickles, in
the famous sickles murder case, in
which the latter was tried for killing
Ms wife's paramour. Phuip Barton
Key, and bv his masterly manage
tacnt of the case secured the acquittal
,f the accused. In I860 he was sent
to California by President Buchanan
to represent the United States in sev
tnd important cases.
On the 14th of November, 1860,
JLr. Stanton's national and political
i areer began. On the retirement of
'General Lewis Cass from the Cabinet
t t Mr. Buchanan, on that date, Hon.
Jeremiah S. Black, Attorney General,
was appointed Secretary of State,!
tnd the vacancy iu the Attorney Gen
rat's office was filled by the appoint,
nent of llr. Stanton. From that
time until the accession of Mr. Lin
coin. Mr. Stanton remained in Mr,
Buchanan's administration, but, tho
in such bad company, he was "fai th
iol among the faithless tound." But
. Lis great career of service to the
country began with his entering tbe
Cabinet of President Lincoln as ec-
rotary of War, vice Mr. Cameron,
resigned, upon the 14th of January,
1862. From that moment to the
close of the war, Mr. Stanton was
the insDiriLc. impelling, executive
power of the administration. In the
darkest hour ot the rebellion neither
hope or energy ever failed him. He
was the moat tireless and effective
worker for the good of the country
in its great peiiL His organizing
faculties were uneqnaled, his mteg.
riry unsoiled, his patriotism unflinch
ihg, his hatred of rebels and scorn
of swindlers tremendous and terrible.
He did many things which in a lees
urgent exigency would oe judged
ai bitrary and unjustifiable ; but tbe
loyj 1 people of tbe preserved union
are only the prouder of Stanton for
these acts, and honor the more the
unselfish courage of the man who
dared to take tbe responsibility.
Mr. Stanton died a martyr to tbe
rebellion. It was the herculean and
incessant labor which he gave to his
department, for days and nights of
incessant labor, that broke down his
constitution and brought him to his
grave. The people should mourn
lor him as for one who died in their
cause. No words are strong enough
to pay tribute to his unswerving loy
alty, and the best monument to his
muciory is the story of his life.
Dec 22. In the Senate several

tax to the fare of passengers; also,
to amend the same by repealing the

The appellation of Khedive, of Is
mail Pasha, the viceroy of Lgypt,
has recently become familiar by rea
son of the numerous cable dispatch
in reference to the protests ot the
sultan against the independent action
his alleged subordinate in the ma'-
ter of the Suez Canal. Egypt was
formerly a province of the Turkish
empire, but became independent by
the successful revolt of Mehemet
Ali, in 1831. By an imperial Latti
sheriff, of January 12, 1841, confirm
by a firman of June 1st, the gov
ernment of Egypt was acknowledged
be vested in the heirs of Mehemet
Ali, according to the Turkish law of
succession. 1 he imperial firman of
May 14, 1867, greatly enlarged tbe
independent position of the rulers oi
Egypt and the succession to the
ttirone was established in the direct
line of heirs to Mehemet AIL The
title "khedeve,'' tbe Arabian equiva
lent of king," was also conterred
upon Ismail Pasha and his succes
sors. The Arabic word, however, is
spelt in many entirely different ways
ihe languages of Europe, and the
Almanack de Uotna asserts that the
most correct orthography is "Ke-
dervi," or 'Uidevu" Mehemet Ali,
1848, became imbecile at the age
eighty. Ibrahim Pasha, his son,
then assumed the reins of power, but
dying Nov. 10th, 1848, less than two
months after his accession, was suc
ceeded by his nephew, Abbas Pasha
a jmt '
an ignorant and pronigate fanatic,
opposed to all reforms. Mehemet
Ali died August 3d, 1849, and Abbas
faana reigned untu July, I8a4, when
died, as is surmised, by violence.
The next viceroy was Said Pasha,the
fourth son of Mehemet Ali, who
died Jan. loth, 163, and was sue

We have before us the speech
tho honorable member of the House
from this 1 )istrici, delivered on the

tical application of Lis theory. Y e
jotice that thc speech has been very
rcely circulated, aud wc shall, there
fore, content ourselves with reprodu
.-ing, in his own language, his prin
cipal reasons for repudiation. lie
tfaj s:
I am in favor of repudiating thc
bonds issued for ibis debt because
they were in nine cases out of ten
dishonestly obtained; got through
tiauiulent coulrncts, shodJy con
tracts, ifec. ; because they were nic6l
iy bought for from thirty -five to fifty
cents on the dollar, and weip bought
by capitalists at this reduced rate,
by a systematized and unpatriotic
course of what I dtnoiuite swind
It is not urjxu to repudiate these
boudd, becauae thu hcMcrs have in a
large majority of cases, icceived
mare moi;ey in gold from tbe gov
ernment in he th e of interest than
they originally invested ia the pur
chase of thu baud-1, including interest
on the ibvciliutut.
I am iu lavor of repudiating this
bondholding debt because it is sap
ping the very foundations of govern
ment and to au alarming cxieut has
controlled thc actioa of the past few
I am in favor of wiping out this
bonded debt because on it the na
tional bank currency is based ; and
when it is wiped out thc notes of tbe
government will for a time, until we
can come back to tbe constitutional
currency at least, take tho place of
Inese national b.tuk notes.
Anotuer reason lor repudiation is
that the taxes to pay tbe interest on
these bonds, as long as they are in
existence, is a prior lien on the prop
erty, labor, bone, muscle, aud earn
ings of tbe masses.
I favor the repudiation of this debt
because our government, controlled
as it has been lor tho last eight years.
and as it now is, nearly entirely by
tbe monied aristocracy of the coun
try, is paying more and greater in
terest ou mouey than an individual
can afford to pay for its use in any
legitimate trade or business.
I am in favor of repudiation as a
et-crl to the repudiation of 4,000,
000,000 of the claims filed by loyal
men against ibis government for los
ses and damages sustaiceJ by the
war and property furnished for and
used and taken by our goveromenl
for wsr purposes.
Another reason for the repudiation
f these bonds is that it would re
store society to a healthy condition,
do away with those- useless and un
just distinctions which have lately
grown up among the people.
In consideration of the indisput
able fact that I ha peojila of the Filth
District have a right to know what
the outside world thinks of their
Representative, and especially of his
recent exhibition of financial wisdom,
wehereunto append extracts from the
press, representing both political
parties :

From the Lancaster Gazette. (Rep.)
In our summary of Congressional
proceedings, tbe discussion on tbe
Repudiation splurge of Congressman
Mungen, cf Ohio, occupies consider
able space. After the gentleman
bad concluded bis speech in advocacy
repudiation, the leading Democrat
ic members, it will be seen, were
quick to follow in emphatic disavow
als of repudia ion sentiments, very
much to their credit and a strong
resolution against repudiation was
immediately adopted by a vote of
123 to 1 ! and that one wasn't Mun

From the Henry County Signal, (Rep.)
The reason why Mungen, the re
pudiated llepudiator, did not cast
his vote with his only colleague in

get back until after the vote was ta

The speech of Billy Mungen, of
Ohio, in the House, advocating re
pudiation, falls still-bcrn here. The
promptness with which Brooks and
Cox of New York disclaimed all
sympathy with the erratic Buckeye
member, is worthy of commendation,
and goes to show that in spite of the
political animosities that may exist
between tbe leaders ol the two par
ties, both are agreed upon tbe great
principle of national rectitude.

From the Marion Independent, (Rep.)
We occasionally sec rn article in
some radical Democratic sheet in
favor of repudiating tbe National
Debt, but it ia rare to hear a speaker
of that party eomc out so bold as the
papers do. Last Thursday, in tbe
House of Representatives in Wash
ington, tbc Hon. William Mungen, ol
Ohio, made a little speech to some
extent, and the Hon Mungen de
clared for repudiation. He was not
in favor of paying a dollar of the
National Debt. Tnis speech of Mun
gen was a bombshell in tbe Demo
cratic camp. Though they do not
like the bonds nor the bondholders,
yet they know they can not come out
in favor of repudiation before tbei
people at the present day and live.
Whatever may be their private opin
ions they dare not make tbem public
in favor of repudiation. The result
was a big excitement when Mungen
made his speech and let loose thc
Democratic elephant. Atones speech
after speech was made by Democrats
