Southern repudiation.--The Legislature of Tennessee has passed the following repudiation bill:--

Sec. 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee, That no persons in any non-slaveholding State, their agents or attorneys in this State, shall have power to sue or collect any moneys owing to or any property claimed by the citizens of any such State in Tennessee during hostilities between Tennessee and the Federal Government.

Sec. 2. Be it further enacted, That it may and shall be lawful for such debtors to pay such moneys into the Treasury of the State, which sums shall be receipted for by the Treasurer, and shall be refunded with interest upon the cessation of hostilities.

A similar bill has been passed by the Legislature of Arkansas. Georgia adopted a similar course of dishonesty a month ago.--N. Y. Evening Post, May 27.
