THlE MANNG Senox.Ansmr.-It is with plea
sure that we have perceived in the late Comi
mcencment Exercises of our College, that the ju
diciotns and patriotic mnimiicence of Col. J. L.
Manning has alreaidy produced such gratifyintg
zesults. Many of otur readlers aure aware that,
severali years sine,. wit h that thoughtful nobility
of feelitng which so characterizes his acts, I-e
made a dottation to the College, thte proceeds of
whicht shoulid be perpetually aipplied to the edtt
eamtion of some young South Carolinian, :n appli
cant from this District always to be preferred in
the selection. No one from this District, however,
has as yet applied for its betnefits, but their first
recipient, Mr. hludson, (we believe from Chmest er)
has, in carrying o1f the first honors of the Col
lege.. antd thus commencing, successfully, what
we hope wvill be a tuseful atnd brilliant life, amply
dotnonstrated the wise kindnenss of the donor,
and richly rewarded his liberality in the gramtilied
Akeling which must have bece cased to him.
Andl oftetn, we hope, will this gratification bec
sepeatted, and when centuies hav~e passed away,
may his name still live, illustrious in its atssocin

A LITER.RY FAVOR.
IN accordance with our last week's promise, we
publish in the present number a rare, original and
literary treat for our readers.
"GERALD FLElM ING" is from the able anl gifted
pets of the author of " Two Grooms fair one Bride."
" The Orphn"a' &c. As it would he forestalling pub.
lie opinion, we can at present, only express our high
appreciation, of this most admirable tale.
WE call the attention of our District to the card of
Maj. Jost C. A1a,EN. lie is, as Paid card will
mure fully explain, again before the people for re
election to the State Legislature.
It will be seen, by reference to another column,
that the friends of S. S. TomPKINs, Esq., announce
him as a candidate " to fill the vacancy occasioned
by the inelligibility of Maj. Jonx C. ALLEY.
In consequence of the election having been or
dered so soon, the 3rd and 4th of January next, we
have been requested to make the above editorial an
As yet nothing of iinportance has tra-spired at
Washington, either in the Senate or hlouse of Ilepre
sentatives. The different oflicers under the adminis
tration have made their respective reports. The
Secretary of War recommends, anong other things,
stronger fortifications along the A tlantic coast. He
thinks the different forts shonld he rendered itmpreg
nable against any force that might be sent against
them. The Secretary of the Navy deesn it expe
dient, in fact necessary, that flogging should he again
resorted to in that department.
Senators and Itepresentatives are contiinu:idly taking
"their seats to-day." On the Ith inst.. several
eudogies were delivered in the Sentate, in honor of
D.%-IEt. IVeIERI. Anong themn are a few chaste

" HONOR IS TIlE SUBJECT OF MY STORY."
Tn't last and most efctuaI resource by a crelil"r

intination of staipitg a mark of infatmy upon the
fraudnlent debtur Iavs restlted in full paynt..aa of all

men are mueh more peaametaIl and ready iaa I iicidatmg
those duaes talled debts of honor than any other kind
of indebtedaess. Not tlat a love of justice or hon.
esty,'or the fear of emnatlsiona urges thaem thtereto,
bitt an exesoss of dlelicacy, a false view of reptatatioct
or ocfteaaer a muistaken senase of honoer.

his usurers. rTe antecdote is sottewltmt as follows:
Fox, although a Ge-nius, was very poo~r and always
ta debt. The Jews, his e-redlitors, called (et hima fi

departed, but shtortly afterwards retuirned-" w htat'
cries Fox, " is thtis a imae, whten I ats enagaged on at

Secretary Hare, aehut thaenmselves uip int garrison. 'Thle
Jews datily suarrouncded his hsabitationa abouat daylight,
andI Fox regualadly tharust hais head onit of Ite winadow,

uwered Fox, "in oler to accomtodate botht parties,
let us settle it the slay after."
Poor Fox, htowever, paid dlear fair htis pleasantry.
For althaought Jatvenad htas remarked that ridicule is

It really seea, however, that thte harder thte laho

lucid account of the expedition, its spirit, intentions,

his subjcets the necessary supplies of coal whirl our
steamers in their outward and inward voyages to and

entirely peaceful, and simply to offer propositions to

then is to be done ? They mtust unquestionably he

in relation to the.asignment of Land Warrants,
.1 have to inforn you, that where a soldier dies
possessed of a Watritrbeing in the nature of
real estate, descend.s-to the heirs. A certificate
issuted under the seakof the. Court having pro
bate jurisdiction, stating tho~fnet of the death of
the soldier, and nanies of his only heirs at law,
will enable said heirs to locate the Warrant, or
sell and assign the sime. Jf any of the heirs
are minors they must net-by their guardian, duly
appointed, and an older, authorizing him to sell
the specilic Warrait., must be granted by the
Court. A copy ofall-the proceedings had before
the court, duly certified, must accompany the
Warrant, to enable tie party interested to di
pose of the same.
In regard to the assignment being made on a
separate piece of paper, I have to state, that
where it is possible,- that office will require as

It is well known that Engl:nd is not very
friendly to the instittition of slavery, and that she
expended a large amount of money in her mis
guided philanthropy on that subject. She has
Ieen her error; she now feels the full force and
eiect oflier follyand the London Timaes, a pa
per whose sympathieis have always been cnlisted
against the institution, has conmiderably modi
tied its tone. In one of its recent articles on the
subject orecurs the tMiowitig paragraph,
"Our legis;ation has been dictated by the pre
sumed nieeraities of'the African slave. A fmier the
- Emianeipation Act,a large charge was assessed
upoi the colony in aid of civil and religious in
stitutions for the beliefit. of the enfranchised ne
oro), and it w-as hoped that these colored sub
jects of the British Crown would soon be assim
ilated to their fellow citizens. Fron all the. in.
formation which reaches us, no less tham from
the visible probabilities of the case, we are comi
strained to believe tfiat these hopes have b.-en
falsified. The negro has not acquired with hik
freedom any habits of industry or morality. Ilis
independeice is but little better than that of the
uicaptured brute. Having accepted a few of the
restraints of civilization, he is amenable to few
of its necessities; and the wants of his nature
are so easily satisfied, that at the enrrent rate of
wages he is called upon fornothing but fitful or
desultory exertion. The blacks, therefore in
stead of becoming intelligent husbmandmneu, have
become vngranta and squatters, and it is now ap.
preheided that, with the failure of enitivation in
the lamid, will come the failure of its resources
for iost ret ing or controlling its population. 811
imminent. does this consummation appear, th.at
metmiorials have been signed by classes of colo.
ninl societ y. hitherto standinig aloof from polities,

THE SOUTE CAROLINA COLLEGE.
A friend and well-informed correspondent j
sends u, s:tys the Carolinian, the following note, t
in relation to the late withdrawal of students
from this institution:
As the leaving of.108 students from this insti.
tution may give rise to mistakes, especially
abroad, which might injure the colles, I would
beg leave to cll the attention of your exchanges
from without the stntu to the following brief
statement of :he affair; .k.
The Coninions Hall of tie college being ob
noxious to most of the students, 108 from the r
different classes entered into a pledge to leave t
the college, provided the Trustees did not abol- r
ish the hall at their meeting inl December. The
Trustees having not abolished the hall, the 108
students have applied for and received dismis
sus. These leave without the least unfriendly
feeling existing between themselves and the Pre
flessors of the college; and ainty will aplply for
admittanee next May, shounlil the coeminons hall
be then done away with. I may also state that
I have been reliably informed that at this last
metioned date licensed boarding houses will be
subtituted for the commions hall: or at least ar
rangements will be entered into for so doing.
