WHAT IS REPEALI
Of late, public attention, both in this
cotnstry and in England, is strongly diree.
ted, towards Ireland. The recent Parli.
Minitary , declaration off' the British minis
tewthat ttfey were deter mined, if neces •
ear l y, to employ force to put down the agi
tation of the repeal question, has caused a
seosation in the public mind, not unlike
an electtic shock. For ihe very first time,
almost, many persons have asked them , .
seiftt, What is repeal:l and how stands the
Me la. Ireland? W e wou'd Fay a few
words en this subject at this time; for it is
destined to he, ero long, if it is not at this
moment, the most important question in
Wa notice that some journals in this
country, whose eyes have, as it were, for
the first tine been open to the existence
of such a question in Ireland, very con
placeutly tell their readers that repeal is a
dismeinberment of the British empire, and
- consequently, treason. This is absolutely
fidge t and the authorities of such state
meets should blush for their ignorance
II repeal were a dismemberment of the
Brttibh empire, then iris that empire exis
ted-for a long series of years in a dismem
bered state; for until within about forty
yoiti past, the very state - of affairs (-xis,
ted between England and Ireland, that re
peal now proposes to bring about. If it
were treason, then have the king, lords,
. afd commons, and every 'Alicia] funetioe
ary in the British empire, beer uilty of
treason; for during the Inns period alladed
• tn, they have countenanced and upheld the
very relations between the two aate e s i e9
thatrepeal would now iustittPe.
At about the eommenc. - mem or the res..
eat century, a legislative act was passed
.by the Vadiaments of Englaini and Ire•
land, by which the latter welt abolished,
and the whole powers of legislaticn vested
in the Imperial Parliament, as it is called.
This is called the act of uni a,; :Aid to re
• peal this, would restore to i i clued her do
'nestle legislature. This the whole scope
of repeal; it is nothing more that: a simple
repeal of that legislative act, anal a conse
quent re% ival of the Iri-h
The integrity of the Btitsh Empire would
not be disturb'-d by repeaing the act of
union; nor is tht-re, nor can there he, any
more treason in agitating tile question if
such repeal, than there is favouring the re
• • peal of the corn laws or the poor laws of
Great Britain. We have said that the em
pire would not be dismembered by repeal;
• and we may go farther, and say, with the
utmost truth, that repeal is probably the
olny measure that nil prevent dismem
• berment! The state of feeling is such iu
Ireland, and such is its extent at the pres
eat time, that there is little probability of
her remaining a member of the Briti-h
Empirertittless her claims to legislative in
' dependence are granted. Such is the opin
ma of eminent stateSmen in England and
Ireland; and, among the rest O'Conoell
1114 :.)„, himself—than We - 3m no man is more loy
alio the crown of Great Britain.
- ' • Ireland claiais the restoration of her
domestic legislature on the grounds of
-light and interest. She stands upon the
greet principle, that the act. of un i on could
ittrtiziete been legally passed by the Irish
•si , • Parliament', because it was a surrender of
' powerlay its members, which they were
onely delegated to exercise fur the good of
their constituents, not destroy. No man,
we think, in this county will deny the truth
of this position; as well might he say that
the two branches of the Legislature of
Massachusetts could, by an act of their own
dissolve themselves, and surreder all their
powers to the Congress of the United
States, is furthermore notorious, that
Irft t he passage of the act of union through the
0,17' fish Parliament wad procured by the
most base and tyrannical means. Mar
tial law was in force at the time; and eve
ry good man opposed to the union was in
danger of being seized and imprisimed unc
der ite. arbitrary sway. The island was
filled with Engli-h troops, and meetings
of citizens to'remonstrate against the pro
posed act were dispersed at the point of the
bayonet. Those members of the Irish le
gislature who were venal, were p!iPri with
the gold and honors of the English Gov
ernment; arid the blackness of their memo
ries in the hearts of the Irish people is to
this day the damning evidence of their guilt
and treachery. By such means as these
was it that the unconstitutional act
was consummated; and this is a t,othei
ground upon which Ireland relies for Fos.
taining . the call for repeal. From the
when the iniquitous act of union was
passed, to the present time, the I t ish• peo.
ple have never agreed to, liar even a r ri ni..
eszed in it; but have constantly manifested
their open opposition to it--formerly by
hostile array against it, which was crush.
ed by the hired hordes of England; ane
latterly by repeated expressions of their
disapproval in all public ways.
But the great moving cause to agitate
abia . question of repeal, and that which
- lifea the foregoing reasons present force,
is She disastrous effects upon the nation's
prosperity which have followed from the
- union, and the beneficial results anticipa
ted from a domestic legislature. At the
period of the union, the affairs of Ireland
were in a prosperous state; manufactures
- flourished to a great - extent;sgriculture was
widely extended, and its enriching results
were expended among her inhabitants in
in making them comfortable and happy.
The owners of land,nobil,ty and gentry
having duties andlintereatsto attend to with
in the nation,spent their time and their in
come at home, among their own people; &
the evils of absenteeism, which have since
contributed to drain Ireland of her wealth,
were comparatively unknown. The bur
dens and expenses of Goveremet.t were
Hight, and the people were left to follow
these pursuits which were most con
dntive• to their prosperity, whether man
ufacturing, trading. or agriculture. Since
apt day when the Uniqn took place, the
conditiohlar the' ebtarttri:._hae. l Prekty

proving a blessing to people, is a curse;
and the manufactures have dwindled away
to almost nothing. These are the blight
ing effects of the union—the results of the
sohish, grasping, inhuman, legislation of
Englani fur Ireland.
Leland, at the prosent moment occupies
a peculiar and commendable position.—
The whole nation, an it veers, is alive to,
and enlisted in, the repeal cause ; and yet
not an act of violence has been committed
—not a word of treason spoken by its ad
vorates. Reason and appeals to the bet l i
ter feelings, thus far, are the only weap
ons with which the battle has been fought.
They are the arms before vi (rich the I3r•it•

acknowledgement of the rialits of Ireland:
Yet a most perfect and widely extended

The paper spectil stors de not

and 1836. Anl if it were not fir the wild

cited by the false and delusive arguments
of the coon campaign of that year, m titers
would, by this time, have been se tied on
a basis of prosperity such as the country
has seldom or never seen•
be asked, how is. this accon-ited
for? We answer, simply from the circum

vented the .vhi,gs from legislating Cot the
people, as they call it, by :barter log a great
bank, and perfectin' their other grand
schemes. It was soot-, found that, if there

lion, their dangerous experiments would
not be vied. And the people, becomi:tg
sick of waiting fur the redemption of fede

ness of the federal Congress, determined
t o rely on Providence ant their own ex
ertions to br tter their condition. Behold
the result! The Whig majority of Con.
greys were unable to pass but a single one
of their favorite measures—and this they
repealed—and yet the people are triumph
ing over their difficulties arid 5 .e the dawn
of better times•
We hope,now that it is demonstrated
that public prosperity cannot be made nor
marred by legislation, that tlie people
will decree an eternal separation of busi
ness and politics—and that men will never
a gaio remit etrifts to help themselves, as
in 1810, nor turn their eyes to Washing—

public mind that he was a ruthless despe
rado,who to gratify his evil passions wo all
not hesitate to it.imple on the rights and
j feelings of his fellow citizens. In this we
beli€ve that great injustice has been done to
Dr. Hagan. He was, perhaps, passionate
and rash, but certainly not a ''man of
blood," as the Gazette has described him.
While editor of the Sentinel, he waged an
; unceasing war against the stock.gamblers
that plundered the people o f Mi ss i ss ippi,
and destroyed the credit of the State. H e
searched out their plo's; exposed their
schemes of plunder, and whenever their
Iplans of villany were discovered, he gave
them to the pubic without the fear of per
sonal or political vengeance. In exposing
dishonesty he was no respecter of persons.
He was the enemy of all who attempted to
wrong the people, whether they were his
political opponents or not, and we think
those who now malign birn,eannot refer to
one instance where any individual was un-
Pied)! made tbe object of het censure:.
The state Or:Mississippi waifor years the
victim of the most unprincipled gang of
swindlers that was ever permitted to roam
beyond the limits of prison walls. They
had possession of every department of the
state government, and had thas the means
in their own hands to lugalize schemes of
plunder,the audacity of which would cause
a highwayman to pause before he would
put them into operation.
It was in exposing the schemes and do.
logs of these wen that Dr; Hagan obtained
his wide spread notoriety. He had a bold
and desperate band to deal with, and felt
that nothing bUt the most fearless exposure
lof all their hands Mould check them in
1 their career of plunder. He undertook the
task, and he performed it. In all his cow ,
l u - twenties, however . ; he was never guilty
1 of an act that would j !slily the appellation,
"a man of blood," and in any personal
difficulties that grew nut of the exposures
he made,he was never the assailant. The
; account published by the Gazette and
Chronicle says that he was unarmed when
the unfortunate encounter took place be
tween him and Adams, and we cannot be.

he were the ruffian these papers describe
him to have been
