Holly Springs, July 16.
From the (Jackson.) Sooihron.
Reply of Hope & Cd., of Amsterdam to
'Gov. McNutt's to tiiem, JrLY 13, 1S41.
To the Governo- of the State of Mississippi:
We have the honor to acknowledge the re
ceipt, in due time, of your Excellenza's an
swer, of the 13th July, ultimo, to our note
of the22l of May, preceding, demanding the
payment of the interest which is in arrear on
the bonds held by us which Were issued by
your State on account of the Uni n Bank
together with the copies ot the journal ol
your legislature for the years 1840 and '41.
1 he purpose of your Highness, in forward-'
ng the latteri we cannot readily divine, un
ess to evince in your State how lightly are
regarded, even by its Chief Magistrate, the
obligations of honor and truth. You aver
that the State will not pay those bonds, or
the inierest c ue or to become due thereon."
Phe legislature make a precisely opposite
ajscnion. lou win paiaon us u in so aei-
icate a conjecture we are inclined to credit
tiie more numerous department oi yourGov-
oi anient. Vie are therefore disposed to re
ft!. is most extraordinary document as ex
cessive of your individual views, rather than
those of the State or the people.
Regarded in this point ot view, we shall
attempt to demonstrate that you, sir, should
be the last man in the State to anticipate such
a decision, or to vindicate it, when made.
We think this manifest from your entire fail
ure to defend your course on this Subject in
your message to the Legislature of this year,
vetoing the resolutions adopted by luem in
favor of the payment of these bonds. It is
nroi'er that we notice, that you admit your
approval of the laws under wit ch these bonds
were made and sold, and place tne ueiehce
of the State on the ground that i hey were
sold at les than their par,mlii&, contrary to
. . .. .. i ' i
the provisions oi tnose laws, iou seem io
admit that it became you to protest against
the sale at an earlier period than January ot
the current year some two years and a half
alter the sale and after, too, it had become
obv.ous to all men that the Slate would in
cut a considerable loss from her partnership
with the Union Bank. Accordingly, ou say
in ur letter to us, that when you ascertain
ed in Januaiy, 1S39, the terms on which the
sale had been made, you communicate them
to the legislature, and denounced the sale as
iileal." In your veto message, you quote
.lis terms oi tnis denunciation as loliovvs:
1 in- commissioners, in the sale ot the bonds.
rxco'dcti i .eir insiiuciions, uui uo uuuui oo-
ui.i.eJ as much for them as could have been
had at the lime of the sale. An anx ousde
oire to plice tne ba ;k into speedy operation
was certainly commendable, but at the sama
time, no violation of the charier should have
been sanctioned." Is your Highness serious
in pronouncing this a "denunciation of the
salt! in due season?" Do you regard u as m
volvi.ig a protest againt the liability of the
ate to iav the bonds, or as a can ou uic ic
-Uiatuie to eniersuc.ii piott si? To denounce
is ,4io proclaim with a threat.?' Saociion-
o :ar trom
il!Ufe I? . l?J: operates ju,t as rn.ch on o.r rights a, vour
7u 6 . ,eg,siaiure l? inspect, denunciation of IS39 d
the ariairi of the Bank, atnon? the arguments
employed byyou, you urge that "the faith of
me oiaie is pledged tor the ,whoie capital
stock, and the property of all her citizens may
hereafter be taxed to make up its losses and
defalcations." Having thus, not only by
silence, but in express language, recognized
the validity of the bonds, and the right ot
the holders to demand their payment of the
State how far it became you, of all men, to
nsurp the province of your legislature, and
pronounce that "the Slate never will pay the
live millions of Slate bonds issued in June,
1S3S, or any portion of the interest due or
to become duo thereon," we submit as a ques
tion of taste merely, to be decided by those
whose suffrages have placed you in the high
position which you now occupy. We would
hav.'expecled thai it would have been suffi
ciently unpleasant to you, sir, to act as the
organ of the State in making the only com
municaiion which the facts warranted, that
'ao provision had been made bv the legisla
tive department for the payment of the intei
est." We would even venture to ask, sir,
how you dare to assert that Mississippi wili
not redeem her pledged faith? for, we per
ceive from a copy of the Gazette of State,
entitled "The Mississippian," forwarded to us
by our Aew York correspondent, that you
have had the temerity to publish our corres
pondence. We hope you will do us thejus
lice to order this to be published in the same
paper. We are apprized by this same veto
message of yours, that in your elevated of
fice, your partisan feelings predominate over
every other c ns:deration. From other sour
ces we have learneji that the party with
which you have heretofore acted, having sus
tained a signal defeat last fall, were resusci
es on oir on 'ieo-
ces? You urge that the bonds wr. fhh vr.
ed by you as escrows, thai i?, as incomplete
or imperfect instruments, (a queer idea this,' '
of delivering escrows to commissioners, to be
carried out of the State and sold,) and thaC
they were not to become complete until af
ter their sale and recipt of their par value.
Then, if ever thev were completed, it wasia
Philadelphia, and that must be the pace of
the contract. But that is not all; if you will
look a little further into the lex hv:i, you will
find that "a contract made in one paco; :o'
bee executed in another, is governed bv the
law of the lattc." We repeat that we do
not conceive that the lex loci or fori, has anv
thing to do with our rights, which Mroull b
precisely the same, whether the contract was
made in Jackson or Amsterdam. But we
are using yourwn weapons, and you can .,
not object that they are poisoned. The place
at.which these bonds were to be executed,
that is paid, is London.
" But, sir; if you are sustained in every po.
sition .which you assume, even in that which"
is assured of any, and which we have just
demolished and if even, the bonds are not
ihe. bonds of the State, still is she clearly
bound to refund the monsy advanced upon thornj
with interest. You admit thai the monej- was
received by citizens of Mississippi and wo have
already shown from Grotius, that the law of re
prisal extends ewen to debts duo from the citi
zens or subjects of one nation to those of anoth
er. The whole people of a State ard consider
ed as composing one body politic. Each individ
ual is a member of the body, aui the whole are
liable for the acts of each. You seem to have
paid little attention ti international law, but must
have encountered frequent recogni.ions of this
principle in your historical researches. It 'is
true, that incases of contract, it is rtrelv resor-
?hS valuable plan- ff,7p
