IT IS A NOTORIOUS FACT that those in the
South who are most indebted to the North
are the bitterest enemies of the Union. Among
merchants, whose credit led to long accounts
in Philadelphia, New York and Boston, this
fact is particularly applicable. The repudia
tion of honorable obligations was a common
practice years ago in the South, which at last
was crowned with the stupendous frauds legal
ized by the State of Mississippi, in not only
the repudiation of her debts, but her actual
refusal to recognize any of her honest obliga
tions, either to her own or the people beyond
her borders. The latest act of repudiation is
that of the traitor and fugitive Robert Tyler,
ex-poet laureate, ex-orator and adulator of
treason in Philadelphia, and ex-Prothonotary
of the Supreme Court of the state of Pennsyl
vania. Robert came to Pennsylvania a beggar
and has left a defaulter. Ou the first day of
May he was indebted to the state Treasury in
the sin of $llOO, which he doubtless intends
shall remain on the books of the Treasurer, as
an evidence of the contempt in which one of
tke F. F. V.'s holds the people and the confi
dence of Pennsylvania, holding on to the
money, at the same time, as the evidence of
his ingratitude and dishonesty. It will be ne
cesiary, in the treaty of peace, which such
men as Bob Tyler now talk of negotiating be
tween the federal government and the rebel
pirates and assassins, that provision be made
for the prevention of the prosecution of such'
defalcations, or Bob and his confederates may
be compelled to repent the indiscretion of
their crimes in the solitude of a criminal's
cell. They will either do this, or have their
reflectionsvinterrupted by the contraction of

To hold Cairo, and . p the Mississippi navi

struggle 'point may be in Illinois, and not in
Virginia. -Upsides, secession will be as dead in
Missouri as in Maryland, if Jeff. Davis be not
at hand to hold General Harney in check at St.
Louis. The first great battle, we infer, will be
in the Weaf,"ind not on the Potomac. It has
been the aim of the leaders of this movement,
to ward off a battle where the treason origin

first the battle field, and as that failed then

WM Name a paragraph in some of the Bieck
inridge Organs, clipped from the Ckirlisle Volun
teer, in which Bretton assails the TELEGRAPH in
his usual sneaking and cowardly style. When
he printed the paragraph in question, he doubt
less imagined, as did our facetious neighbors at
the corner of the alley, that he would crush
and confuse us, by striking the Tetecarepn
from his exchange list. This Is peculiarly cru
el in both our cotemporades, as we claim some
credit in having awakened in both just suffi
cient. patriotism to rescue them from the mob
violence their course had invoked. The Vol
unteer is the most hopeless of all the torysheets
in the State, made so as well by its innate mean
ness and selfishness, as by its natural tendency
to wrong when goad is to be achieved.
Tus Monson recently held their semi-annu

while others made them the subjects of witty
comment. Young thinks Lincoln as good a

LEXINGTON, May 6.
On call of the people of Lexington and vici
nity, a meeting was held in the school house
in Lexington, on Saturday, May 4th, at seven
o'clock P. M., for the purpose of dealing justly
with Dr. J. C. Whitehill, a citizen traitor. On
motion of Capt. Amos Marshall, S. E. Claggett
was called to the chair, and Isaac S. Mahan
was chosen Secretary. After speeches from
Jacob C. Mahan and William id. Smith, the
following communication was read :
PAM Hat ABOUND.—From the Southern Om

"A Ands' from Illinois.---We take pleasure
in laying before our readers the following ex

of this city, with the accompanying note of
explanation. Southern Illinois is true, and al

would not be surprised if that portion of the
State secedes and joins our Confederacy :
" 'You well know my sympathies are with

the liberty of using your name as a reference.
Now, my good friend, I shall be exceedingly

from a private letter received from Dr. J. C.
Whitetail, au eminent and capable surgeon of
Illinois—a Pennsylvanian Ly birth. He has
ever been a true friend of the South, and de
sires now, in her hour of trial, to exhibit his
sympathy in the above patriotic way."
On motion, Thomas F. 'Tipton, George Oka;
son, Jacob C. Mahan, and George T. Dement,
were appointed a committee to wait on Dr. J.
C. Whitehill, and request him to come forward
and explain himself. The committee retired,

Canada for England. In the Crimea, the It
