REPUDIATION TORE REPUDIATED.
Repudiation of public obligations of debt
always tarnishes the escutcheon of any people
who attempt it. The universal sentiment of
civilizedriationa is that_the public taith must
be preservedlnviolable. In the history of the
States of this Union, all approaches to ,the
repudiation of public debts have resulted in
commercial disaster to the comm unities who
have attempted it.
Some years ago, the State of Missisaippi,
through its Legislature, who were the
agents of the people, issued bonds to the
amount of two millions of dollars, inbehalt
of the old Planter's Rai:lk, -of that State
With the interest accrued, these bonds now
amount to about three millions -of dollars.
These Bonds were issued illegally, it is true,
but that is not the fault of those who have'
purchased them, and the people of Missis
sippi are bound, by every honorable and
moral obligation, to accept the act of their
agent, the Legislature, and make provision
for the payment of the debt. California
has set a brilliant example in paying its un
constitutionally incurred debt.
We observe, with gratification, that the
Legislature of Mississippi shows a disposition
to respond favorably to Governor M' Willie's
special message, which we briefly noticed in
yesterday's Posr,reeommend ing the paymen t
of these bonds. The State of 'Mississippi is
a prosperous one. • Its financial position is
as good as that of any other State in the
Union,for ithas no constitutionally incurred
public debt. A tax which would scarcely
be felt by its thriving' citizens would
pay this debt and relieve the State from
the stigma which its repudiation has for
many years thrown upon its character.
Governor 31'Willie has set a brilli:int ex
ample to those who woulci,if it were possible,
refuse to perform public contracts, in this
community. Here, the: contractsof our
municipal bonds, issued to railroads, have
been decided to be legal, and our courts
have ruled that it is the duty of the people
to preserve them inviolate. Here repudia
tion would be against law as well as against
honor and morality. We are glad to observe
that public sentiment on this subject, which
for a time was misled by demagogues, is fast
assuming a healthy tone. The hardship
upon us is.great, <the people of this com
munity are, in view of the repeated legal
decisions in the railroad bond cases, mak
*rig up their minds sternly to resist repudia
ton, and to avoid the evils which it would
entail upon the city and county.

Daniel Webster on Abolition.
It is no wonder that Abolitionism hates the
memory of Daniel Webster. It was he who
said : " Now, sir, this prejudice has beei
produced by the incessant attrition of Aboli
tion,.doctrines by Abolition presses and Aboli
tion lectures on the common mind. No drum
head, in the longest day's march, was ever
more incessantly beaten than the feelings of
the public in certain parts of the North. They
hive been beaten every month,and every week.
by the din and roll and rub-a-dub of Abolition
lectures, and that it is which has created these
prejudices." It was for having said and
for having Said on the same memorable occa
sion, that it was time New England had con
quered her prejudices against the South, that
Abolitionism desecrates the memory of -Web
ster,and demands that his statue,which has been
erected near the Arassmehusetts State House,
shall be removed.

DEATH OF THEODORE REDGWICK.
The death of Mr. Theodore Sedgwick, ,
United States District Attorney of the &fathom
District of New York, is announced us having
taken place on Thursday evening of last week i
. Stoekbridge, 31assachusetts. Ho had gone
home to the beautiful village where he was
born to close his caree' on esiith. How much
is expressed in that form of oriental benediction'
may you die,among your kindred."
Mr. Sedgwick was ono of a remarkable fam
ily. Hewes son of Hon. Theodore Sedgwick,
of Massachusetts, and grandson of Hon. Theo
&ore Sedgwick, L.L. D., of-the same State.
Judge Sedgwick, the grandfather, was edu
cated, at Yale College, and commenced the
practice. of law in Berkshire county, Massa
chusetts, in 1776, in which year he went to
Canada', as an aid to Gen. Thomas. He was
repeatedly ft member of the Legislature, and
soon after the adoption of theStato Constitution
he was - one of a council, who procured a con
struction 'to that: instrument which 'abolished
slavery in .Massachusetts. In 1785 be fixed his
residence in the town of Stockbridge, and that
year and the succeeding, -he was a member of
Congress under the Confederation. In 1788,
he was a leading advocate for the adoption of
the Constitution of the United States, in the
State Convention, and also Speaker of the
House of Representative.. From 1789, until
his death in 1813, at the age of GG years, Judge
Sedgwick was with scarcely any interruption
either a representative, or senator in Congress,
or a Judge of the Supreme Court of Massachu
setts. lie was a man of remarkable attain
ments, literary and scientific as well as legal
and political, and lived an active, honored,
and useful life, and died universally esteemed.
The, sons of Judge Sedgwick, Theodore,
Henry D., and Charles were all bred to the
Bar. The former lived and died at the family
.residence in Stockbridge, devoting much of his
time and means to forwarding the Agricultu
ral and other public interests of his country.
Ho was a man of enlarged heart, great ehari
ticai and immense personal influence. He died

dinner in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, about it fteen

English language is read or spoken,as an author

pieces, are quite numerous, and possess such
merit that they are worthy of being published
in a connected form properly edited.
As a lawyer, ho ranked among the first of
his profession at the New York Bar. As a
politician he seems almost to have inherited the
Conservative Democratic sentiments of his an
cestors. As a literary man. he belonged to the

than to create sensation.

It requires only twenty days' residence. A

NOVEMBX,B.,: 10 1859. •
MR. EDITOR.—You will confar a favor on
me by inserting the inclosed letter from Gen.
J. N. Parviance, of Butlor„lcia the subject of
the "History of the Western Insurrection."
The commendation of Mr. Purviance, is grati
fying to me, coming from one who has read
ilinhook of which he speaks, and who has the
capacity to form a just opinion of it, which is
notlhe case, with some of our flippant editors
of the Pittsburgh pr6s. I have other letters
similar to thatof Mr. Purviance, from persons
at a distance, who have read my work with im
partiality, and are competent to appreciate it:
I take this occasion to say, emphatically,
that the narrow view taken by some of the
vdityrs referred to, that my work is only a vin
dication of my father from the charge of trea
son; is not correct.. It is what it professes to
be, a "History of the Western Insurrection,"
and, at the same time, as is truly stated by Mr.
Purviance, a vindication of the inhabitants of
Pittsburgh at that time, from the false and nui
dacious stigme; of cowardice and treason, made
by the author of the "History or Pittsburgh."
It is a vindication of the eminent and patriotic
men of Western Pennsylvania, from the same
imputation, and, also, a disproof of the asser
tion, that the insurrection was put down by a
military force, when, in fact, it was arrested
by the moral energy of the people themselves,
just as the same sense of what is duo to the
laws and safety of the Union, will, I trust, in
duce the moral and patriotic portion of the
Unioalto frown upon, and, by active exertions,
put down those treasonable designs of fanatics,
which now threaten our glorious union of
States, by showing the Southern States the ne
cesSity of adopting measures for their self
preservation. I regard the Union as the great
est political blessing we enjoy, and I consider
disunion as the greatest curse that van halal us.
The traitor abolitionists openly - avow this to
be their object, and if in the South there be
these who look to the same fatal measure, it is
not of choice but from necessity for self-preser
vation, and as a lamentable alternative. But
I firmly believe that the great majority of the
South, as well as of the North, cling to the
Union ardently and sincerely. Yours,
1.1.. N. 11. M. BRACKEN RIDO E: Dear Sic
1. take plesure in acknowledging the receipt
of a copy of your o History of the Western
Insurrection, - which you were kind enough
b, prient to me. ili t ecept my thanks for it . _
It is a work that si Mold have a place in every
library in Western Pennsylvnia.
As a masterly and truthful vindication of
the separation of many of the distinguished
and patriotic men of that day, it could not be
excelled. Many of the apparently leading 111C11
o f those trying' times, acting, doubtless, from
the, purest and best of motive, ; and who, at
no period of their lives, would have been found
in a position of rebellion to the laws of their
country, ur to the lawfully constituted author
ities, were, from circumstances wholly beyond
their control, compelled, for the general good,
to occupy positions, not of their own selection
from choice, but that they might the bettor
and more effectually control the raging ele
ments that. existed wide-spread over a large
and thinly settled country.
Your work contains irrefutable evidence by
gentlemen of the highest standing for integri
ty and honor, in vindication of the memory
and reputation of your father from the slight
est., suspicion that he acted from any other
than patriotic motives. When 1 finished
reading it,you can scarcely imagine the perfect
delight it affords ins to contemplate theirresist
able power of truth over falsehood and error.
And that, although it has been the lot of etlolo
of our purest and host men to suffer oblmmy
and reproach from men, often actuated by
mercenary motives, and a total disregard of
honor and truth ; yet time, the great regula
tor and exponent of nicn's actions, motives
and principles in almost every imitarice is sure
to give truth the mastery."
Over sixty years have rolled away since thrq.,,
stirring and eventful times, and now truthful
histury,in the clearest lighter human testimo
ny, fully vindicates the memory of the pa
triotic rasa of the then town of Pittsburgh.
I am, very truly, yours,

This being coii4uded, the young ladies retired
to an anteroom, uecempariifl•o by several of the
order. An interval elapsed,' which ~;as occu

and a beatifui of music. The girls re
entered in the rOStIIO . 4O of their order, consisting
of a long blue habit, awhile teit boun4 around
the brows, and hanging over the shoulders a
white cape of muslin, and slippers. The Bish

plat _ed on their heads the crown of orange
blossoms which lig been removed in the former
part of the ceremony.
The following are the names of the young
ladies assuming the veil, together with those
adopted by themselves in entering the order:

change that haft come over the spirit of their

voluntarily accepted. The world and all its
pleasures, its temporary enjoyments'. and sinful
fascinations, had been renounced, and forever
apart from anything that might contribute to
wean them from that life of pure and humble
devotion to Christ to which they had devoted
themselves. It was a hard thing to conceive
that so much had been sacrificed—that so
mudh could be sacrificed—by those so young
and beautiful. Yet it was a noble ex
amplification of self-donial,and brought vividly
to recollection those eloquent and appropriate
lines of Milton :
‘"Eito dear to Heaven is saintly chastity,
That when a soul ie found sincerely so,
A. thousand liveried angels lacquey her,
Driving far oft each thing of sin and guilt:
And In clear dream and solemn vision,

THE SINKING OF THE STEAMER ROCHESTER.
—We aro indebted to D. B. McCook, Esq.,
second clerk of the steamer Rochester, which
sunk at Eagle Hollow, four miles above
son, Lid., on Wednesday night, 7th inst., for
the following particulars of the disaster:
On that night a heavy fog prevailed, so
dense that the pilot was unable to see the jacks
staff. At fifteen minutes past ton en effort was
made to land at the point named, on the Indi
ana shore; the landing was easily effected, but
the boat struck a sharp rock on the shore;
which made a hole in the side of the boat,
causing her to sink to the cabin floor in seven
minutes. The chimneys fell overboard on the
starboard side sin the barges in tow, and the
stoves fell down and set the cabin on fire. The
crow extinguished the flames, and the stoves
having burned through the floor fell into the
The second engineer, George Atkinson, nar
rowly escaped with his life. HO was on watch
at the engine, and finding the boat sinking, he
ran back to let off the steam from the boilers
to prevent an explosion, (the boat having list
ed to starboard,) and propped up the throttle
valve with a piece of pig metal. While se do
ing the water ran down his back, there being
then five feet in the engine room, ind it was
with difficulty be was rescued by a passenger,
who reached him a pole and drugged him out.
When he got ashore his clothes were frozen
fast to hie body.
An hour after the boat sunk the crew had
kindled a tire on shore and the passengers were
all safely landed. The thermometer stood at
two degrees below zero and the ground was
covered with snow to the depth of six inches.
The steamboat Neptune, Captain Poe, hear
ing of the dieter at Madison, went up and got
along Aile at two o'clo4, after a long search
in the fog. Tim passengers and crow were
taken on board and rendered comfortable as
possible—having been served with hot coffee
and refreshments. The passengers and crew
were proffered a free passage home. The cabin
crow accepted the kind offer and the Neptune

iron, wheat and hides, in all 27(1 tons, valued
at $lO,OOO and principally insured. The boat
was worth SS,OI/0 and insured for 54,000.
