me Pension Bill.
The Pension bill has passed the Ilonse of Rep
resentatives in'Congress, and if it is not defeated
in the Senate, will be the law of the land. The
large majority itrcceived, too, will take the cem*
try by surprise, and alarm those who feel an in
terest in an occnomical administration of the
Government. We cannot conceive how a bil
giving away, as a mere gratuity, $15,000,000 to
$20,000,000 out of the Treasury, should have pass
ed the lower branch of Congress. It may be that
all the protectionists voted for it to raise the tarn
*—it may be that many voted for it, whose.syim>a
thies for the poor soldier made them liberal with
the people’s money and the people's means—it
may be that they were actuated by the purest
and most exalted motives.
Butaside from the honesty of their intentions,
it is a great outrage to draw from the Treasury so
enormous ariiount of money, as a reward for the
soldier’s services in the wav of ISI2, when they
were regularly paid by the government, and when
tiMßlv deed* are treasured up in the hearts oi tUeii
served for sixty days or were engaged in battle in
the war of 1812, or in any war or battle fought by
the United States with the Indians previous to or
during that war. Its provisions extend to both
the army, and navy, and if the soldiers or sailors
entitled totho pension are not living, the widow
is entitled to the same benefits. The scale of the
proposed pensions is as follows : To those who
have served 12 months or more, $96 per annum;
5 months or more, $75; 3 months or more than
fit) days, SSO.
Thus it will be seen that soldiers who enlisted
for the period of three months or more than sixty
days—who never smelt the smoke of battle—who
never were disabled, Imt quartered, perhaps, in
some old barracks, are to be paid a good sum
every year since the year 1812. A most prepos
terous idea! Wa humbly submit that it would be
more in accordance with justice to pay the citi
zens of our city, whose serv ices were called into
requisition to protect their tire-sides from the
depredations of the Indians in 18;G—who stood
guard at the bridge when they expected a strug
gle as fierce as that at Lodi—who were absent for
weeks on scouting expeditions surrounded by a
cunning atul dangerous foe, back rations from
period that o the present time. They lost little
blood it is true, but the fright that many sustain
ed during those fearful times is worth a pension,
and they ought to receive it, if the soldiers of
1812 arc to be paid for marching in the service
and marching out again after 00 days. Think of
it, reader, fifteen millions of dollars for these sol
diers! Why not include those that, served in
Mexico? They endured a scorching snn—a
dreadful disease, and fought gallantly? Why
discriminate, 9 In the one case, the government
would pay near SIOO a year since 1840 ; in the
other, they pay that sum since 3SI 2. It is useless
to say more about the jffiier
osity of our Congressmen.
We trust that the Senate will defeat thi3 bill.—
It will never do to pass it. The people will never
be satisfied with appeals to their sympathy or their
loveofcountry when the discrimination is so un
just, aud when the gratuity is out of their own
earnings, anti when they know as well as their
Congressmen, that the great end and aim of gov
ernment is to make laws and not lavish away their
money. We trust that we are not understood as
depreciating the services of the soldiers of 1812 ?
By no moans. We applaud their gallant deeds
aud will keep green in our hearts their memory,
but we do oppose this bill granting them and
their widows fifteen million* of dollars, as most
preposterous and wicked.

Death of (Jen. James Gadsden
It is with deep emotion that we announce the
death of that useful and honored citizen of South
Carolina, Gen. James Gadsden. Throughout an
activo life, which has been prolonged to the
pslamist s limit, Gen. Gadsden has been promi
nent in the history of the State and the confed
eracy, and has distinguished himself as a civilian,
a warrior and a diplomatist. In politics Gen.
Gadsden was a true Democratic Republican of
the Calhoun school, a Nullitier in ’32 and a Se
cessionist in ’SO. Ho has ever been man of
large influence and character—bold, independent,
activo and of great public spirit. South Carolina

Extraordinary Sale of Negroes.
One of the most extraordinary sale of slaves—
not so much on account of their number as the
prices obtained for them, although even the num
ber was very large—was made at public auction
at the village ot Autaugaville during four da vs of
last week. Ono hundred and seventy slaves, be
longing to the estate of Richard Morton, were sold
on twelve months time with interest and, for the
enormous sum of one hundred and sixty thousand
dollars being an average of $941 and “a fraction
over. In the large number composing the lot
were old and young, halt and lame, and one was
deaf and dumb. A girl aged 14, black and a field

The Escaped African.

thought that he will be removed, although few be
lieve him to blame for the escape or abduction
of the little African.
