to be cheerfully obeyed in all his relations

faithfulness all the duties of First Sergeant
of a company, in the volunteer service i,
exceddingly dangerous to personal popu
larity: Few, indeed, can fulfil them pro
perly. and retain the good-will of their
brothers in arms. But Sergeant Blocker
was one of those few. During his whol.
term ofservice, he was protpt and stric
in the duties required of the men, yet a
popularity never for a moment diminished.
During the fierce conflicts in the valley
of Mexico, the peculiarities ofyoung Block
er were strikingly illustrated. In all thene
brilliant achievements, except Molino del
Rey, in which the Palmetto Regimet
was not engaged, he took an active part,
and acquired great distinction. At Co,
treras and Churubusco he acted as Ftrs
Sergeant of his company. At Chapultepec
and the Garita de Belen. from the neces
sary absence of the commissioned ofticers
he assumed the command. It is not too
much to say. he filled well the latter part.
and proved himself as able to command
the company, as he had been to exercise
the office of First Sergeant.
- In all-the battles in which 1e was en
gaged. we are at a loss which to admire
mostly, his great coolness of action. or the
hold daring of his movements. There was
no danger he feared to meet-no dashing
enterprise he was not ready to undertake.
A little incident on the battle field of
Churubusco ~ill serve to illustrate his
great coolness in the moment of danger.
In the heat of the action a charge upon the
enemy was ordered by the General in
command. Blocker had that moment dis
charged his tire-lock, and was in the act of
reloading. The commat.der of his com
pany, a few paces ahead, turned to him
and said-"come on, Blocker, my brave
boy-you have been at my sido all day."
With the greate-t coolness he replied
" wait till I load my gun!" But in a mo
ment he 'added-" Well ; I'll load as I go
-I shall be among the foremost!" Suiting
the action to his w ord be advanced rapid

the very first who crossed the ditch by the
public road in pursuit of the enemy.
At Chapultepec and at the Gates of the
City, Blocker, at the head of the company.
behaved with uncommon gallantry. All
the officers of his regiment present, and
all the men under his command hear their
united testimony to his noble daring and
heroic valor. He was ever in the hottest
of the fight. and among the foremost of his
regiment. His men were all close at his
side. Not a man as we know of; faltered.
Wherever be led, the men were willing to
follow. Successfullv-did he lead them on
through the stormy thunders of Chapulte
pee. Boldly did they meet the fierce dis
charge of artillery at the Garita. He led
them within the walls of the far-famed ci
ty. He pointed them to the lofty turrets
of its cathedrals. All were about to real
ize the goal of their ambition. The enemy
had almost been silenced in his strong
works, and the shouts of victory were
about to arise from the hattle-worn sol
diery. In this anxious moment, when

Just sixteen months agon. and our muceh
lamented friend J Ess?. H IL.I, in the vigor
of youth and manhood, went from-amnong
us, to battle for his country's , ights. That
the honor of' our District shouldl be sus

go the enjoyment ol- domestic retiremett
and ease, yielding without reluctance to
bhat which he considered to he his duty, he
voluhiarily off'eretd himself a sacriften to
the well being of his country. His fate
like that of a great many others was not
to fall gallantly resisting the furious onset
of a merciless enemy. But to die from
disease, under the conviction of having
performed his duty so far as he was abl+-.
He dted on the 15th of September '47.
Hand his life been sparedl. nd should aun
opportunity ha.ve presented itself. there is
no doubt hut that he would have done
honor to himself and friends. Of a mtld
and humane dispositio; s'rictly tenaciousa
of what he considered to be his right, an
advocate to the moral- cdntained in the
sent iment "do utnto others, as you would
that they should do unto you," caused him
strictly to regard, and never to injure the
feelings of any one without provnenation.
Consistency, blended with firmness was
his ruling principle. It wvas this dlecision
of character, together with the many other
ennoblinig qualities that he professedl, that
never failed to elicit the admiration of nil
with n hnm he became acquaintetd. When
the disease of wvhich he died was in its
Worst state, it wvas with the greatest possi
ble efTort that he cotuld be restrained fromj,
marching on with his company. Hleroic
the indomitable purpose of his- soul, he i
would have witnessed that for which he t
was ambitious. The honor of his country a
unsullied, and her flag proudly waving its a
folds on the walls of the Mexican capitol. c
But he was doomed, fatally doomed, after a
witnessing the surt ender of Vera Cruz, c
never again to beh~ild a sight so replete F
with joy. Far away from the land of his t
nativity, surrounded probahly hy,the dos I
ky forms of a treacherous enemy. he dies,
breathing forth to heaven a .ervent ejacu- t
Intion for the future success of our arms. t
'an we then forget those who have devot t
ed their lives and their fortunes to the a
Prosperity of our country. Sooner let us
cease to exist as a body politic. t
The manner in which he addressed his t
father, in a letter writen shortly after the r
'tirrender of. this important strong hold,
;proves that lie was desirous to test the
blood of his noble and high-minded sire. I

we itncline to think that all'f yoti are dis- n

This lat ter, has' been a controverted tI

woucl: have disetnssed in order to elicit in-e
formatior., upon batnking generally, andi e
upon ours in particular. Withour further tI
alltusiotns t votor opinions, we subtmit a h
few co:,sidetatton, in respect to the Bank. I
Ahout the year 1824, the Legislature .*
oppointed a Commit ee of Ihspection, to'i
examine mitiutely, the aItairs and situa.
tion of the Bank, and report to the Legis
lature the rosnlt thneenf This reguntinn
idicetes an honest.disposidon, to kee
he State fully advised of the management- C
ud situation of her Bank; and if its spirit p
nd policy had been carried.into practical al
peration, the.present jealous opposition to Tr
ur Bank would never have been supern- it
uced. to actual mismanagement on the ]
art of its Officers. But nothing is easier 'st
han to defraud the people, as long as you
eep them ignorant of the-fnct. .
It is like indirect taxation, ostensibly for it
he purpose of revenue, but really. fptrpro- tl
etinu of a monopoly, in whose welfare, m
re have no interedt-no hope of any civil, tI
r political advancement. If all legisla- ir
on of such a tendency were divested of its r
isguise, aud the fraud exposed, it would in
e impossible to force a free and high- g
ninded people to submission. A salutary It
nil wise institution, has nothing to appre- i
end from the intelligence of the people. e
is fact. the greater the intelligence and in
rmation,-the greater the appreciation
f its benefits, and the more ardent is the in
evotion to it. In politics all mystery is K
t least primafacie, if not conclusirie evi. r
ence of fraud. There is no other motive
concealment. This is true as regards re
government and its subjects, and the re
resentatives and their constituents. It
iay not be true as regards the duty of one
ation towards another. But in our mus
icipal regultions it is our right to see
very step taken, and to know every opin
>n entertained by our representaites. In a
iouth Carolina it is not only a right-but h
n especial and pressing duty; our govern- h
lent it not fully democratic, and God for- t
id that it ever should be. We are more w
epublican, and exercise our sovereignty. ri
urely by constituting representatives.- c
bove all others then it becomes us to
now, to analyze, and publicly to discuss
e political sentiments of those who are o
audidates fur our Legislature. In this F
ray- we are amply able to dictate both n
uch men and measures as will guarrattty ti
successful and satisfactory operation of te
or State Government.
Under these considerations we make the !'
igniry, why have not our Senators and a
epreseutatives, and their Committee of di
napection all along, kept us advised-that v,
he Bank out of its profits was not paying w
ne dollar of our debt, and that by mis
ianagement, it has lost half of a million of ul
ollars;--while as a compensation. to its hi
ficers, we have paid theta one million of
llars. Ignorance of the mismanage- in
tent of our Bank, really seems to tare .t
een the result, not of indifference or in- P
dvertence, out of deliberate design on the hi
art of our Legislature. For fear the Com- %%
itiee of inspection appointed in 1824, le
tight reveal some fact calculated to dis
lease the people, and wound the feelings o
nd interest of some of the gorman bank of- S
cers, the Legislature as early as 1827. th
dded a very material proviso, to tIre du

tas follows: " provided, nevertheless, that w
