settled by repudiating at the ballot box 1
Even if the bond paying party sho'ujd b

bond-holders' to say nothing of governmen

the burden hanging over us with increased
and increasing .weight- What will we
gain by e ecting a bond paying Legislature?
We will have the assets of the Bank saved,
ind every other available means of payment
exhausted, so r.s to save the people from bur-
uensorne taxation. This is precisely the i-
sue presented to the people, and it is for
them to judge which they prefer. And in
choosing, we entreat them to act ration-illy,
and sensibly, and not lo permit blind party
feeling to mislead them. Wc know the
power of party prejudice, and the ruinous
extent to which it is carried. We verily
believe, that if i: were not that the bond
question is connected with a political partv,
repudiation woul 1 at this time find few ad
vocates in Mississippi. If the respectable
name of democracy had not given it some
'haracter, it would long since have been

WHO AHE IN. FAVOR OF TAX
ATION ?
The maiu argument of th repudiators is,
that the payment of tho bonds will require
an oppressive tix, that will prove ruinous
to the tax payers. This is their only avail
ab!o argument, and is a virtual abandonment
of the question of riglt. It is no: saying
liiat Mwe ought not lo pay because we are
not legally bound," which, if it could be es
tablished, would be a plausible argument
though by no means conclusive, (for there
are many moral obligations where there is
110 legal liability,) but it ;s equivalent to say
ing, "we wont pay because it is jiol conve
nient." We have always believed that tax
ation was lh only bugbear after nil, and the
holy horror of violating the constitution,.
Tvai put c;i. When we trace back the his
tory of rep'idhtion and follow it through
all its various windings, we can hardly fail
. . . - . , ,
to tee the shallowness of Us pretended pre
texts. Fim it was objected by McNutt.that
fce Voo c1? werf" f.el.d under par, and for a long
which will come before them for yeaisto ting a final end to the ducirine of redudia-
Come. We mean the mieetinn nfih twi-. tion. all that we could sar nnnl I hp n ii?h-
. . i t'"j j
tneni of the state bonds. Unfoitunatcly for less waste of words We trust the tempo-
us, this question has, in a great mrasure,
become identified with party, which pre
cludes that calm and honest deliberation
rary gratification of party pride, wili not in
duce them to abandon the cause of truth in
the hour of need. We regard no man a3 a
which its importance demands. One of the bonJ P.ver who will vote for repudiutois,
political parties assert tho justice of the at a time when the band paying burner is
claim against us ; first, as being contracted raiaeJ by whlSs an 1 democrats, and they are
according to the forms of law and the strict , calied uPon 10 raIi-v to hs snpport. By
letter of the constitution ; and, secondly, as lheir f, uit J'e shaM know them, and the
cbligatory upon us by the precepts of moral 1 bonJ P:iyer u ho supports repu li itors is
honesty and the plainest principles of mo- about 83 much a bond-payer, as John Ty
ralitv. The other naity denies that the law ! ler isa xvh,S-
! . t. -
a character suited to tho doctrine they main
tain. Repudiation is m iiselfa false princi
ple, founded upon a falhood, and in advo
cates sustain its sinking causo by resorting
to every species of misrepresentation and
chicanery, A correspondent of the Guard
wilting from Ripley, asserts that Howard
there stated, that he did not expect the sup
Dort of the whig party. This was evidently
intended to exasperate tho whig?, and pre
vent them from supporting tha bond-paying
ticket for Congress. Wc publish tee "day a
communication from a f. iend utterly deny
ing the truth of the charge, and exposing
the triek that the whigs may b? on their
guard against such shal ow devices-, L"t
the bond paying democrats suppoit thfir
own ticket, and the whigs wil not desert the
bond paying cause on the day of the elec
tion. This is of a piece with another trick dis
covered by the Southron at Jackson, t
had long been suspected that the letters pub
lished in the Reformer, giving an account
of the speaking of Brown and Clayton, weie
j wiitten about Jacks m, but they were una-
! K!, t.- Anient 'it Rut itm
to the well every nay, wiil after n while be
broken I and sure enough, the Reformer's
correspondent was at last caught napping.,
It was expected that Jacob Thompson would
address the people at a ceitain place en a cer
tain day As usual, there, appeaicdin the
Reformer a communication giving a glori
ous account of his speech on that occasion,
interlarded with denfning applause, ker
hear, and winding up with the Hremend
ous entSiusiastn of the d "lighted au lien.-.s
Next day, o, and behold, the news came
that from some cause or other, Mr. T. had
failed to speak on the occasion. Sf ame
upon the lying var lets, whose cause requires
such trickery to support it. Here now is
'another forgery' to expose. Where is that
watchful sentinel who guards th dear peo
ple from trickery, co nmooly yclept 'The
Guard?' N doubt next week, we will see
that paper adorned with the account of this
real live forgery.' Now that it has sonte-

hope .it will cast aside the dry bone it has
gnawed for the last two months, to the man

conte nded on the other hand, that if we
should ever enact an unconstitutional law,
and impose such a law upon strangers to
their injury and our beeefit, it would te un
just in the extreme, for us to plead c.ur
own wrong. And who can doubt that it
was our own act, when they reflect that it
passed the Snate by a v.te of22to3, and
both houses by 77 m 23! ! Every honest
man must know that nine tenths of the neo
pie of the Slate were in lavor of the meas
ure. It provrd, however, lo be a failure,
and the simple question is, shall we, by re
pudiating, throw the loss upon thosa who
advanced js the money to speculate on, or
shall we, we aill not say magnanimously
(for there is no magnanimity in it,) but shad
we honestly pay the fifer in IS-13, who
played for us in 1833.
We say that this question comes up be
fore us now w ith all the interest that an easy
payment on the one hand, and oppressive
taxation on the other, can add to it. We
have been strivingto arouse our repudiating
friends to the importance of taking steps
immediately for the gradual liquidation of
the" debt, while the means cf payment, at
last to a great extent, are within cur grasp
We have warntd them that another elec
tion w ill be too late, that tht? assets of the
may make up their minds to this result, for
as fir as our knowledge extends, we da not
know a single whig who will not vote the
bond-paying ticket for Congress. We have
several orders for printing election tickets
from neighboring counties and in all it is
expiessly required lo have the names of the
democratic band payers fot Congress. Then
there are repudiators who have personal
prjudices for some one or other of ihe bond
payers and who cannot be induced to vote
for such men as Tucker, Harriet or Robert
So that from all we can lam and s-e, there
is every prospect of carrying theentire bond
