HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
ApRiI. 16, 1856.
Mrs. Mary E. Tillman.-Mr. Oliver, of New
York. froni the Committee on Invalid Pensions,
reported a bill for the relief of Mary E. Tillman;
which was read a first and second time by its
Mr. Brooks. Mr. Speaker, I beg the indul.
gedce of the House to make a few remarks ex
planatory of the merits of this bill. The bill
itself is the unanimous report of the committee
to which was referred the petition of Mrs. Mary
E. Tillman, a resident of my district, who, when
the requisition was made on the State of South
Carolina for troops for the Mexican war, gave
to the service of her country, every member of
her family at that time capable of bearing arms.
They were three high-toned, spirited sons, and
the husband, of her bosom.
All went; but not one returned to dry a moth.
cer's tears, with the story of the gallantry of her
The bona's of one now lie at Saltillo, another
fell at Jalapa; the father was buried beside the
castle w-alis efPerote; and the last reached the
goal, at once of his earthly career and of his
youthful ambition, at the capital of Mexico.
With a strange and crushing fatality, about
the very time that this harrest of sorrow was
ripening for this woman in a foreign land, her
only remaining son, in the discharge of duties
which he was too young to perform, and which
were devolved upon him in consequence of the
absence of his older brothers, by a fall from his
horse became the victim of confirmed paralysis.
This lady is thus left in the decline of life, with
a helpless child and an infant daughter, depen
dent upon her personal exertions for their and
her own support.
This is the narrative of her petition, and upon
it she builds the hope that her country will re
irember h6r sacritices, and requite her services.
By the laws of nature, and of regulated society,
the services of a minor are due to its parent;
and we, who are the Representatives of the
country which has been benefited by the exer
tions of the children, ought not and will not
forget the obligation we owe the mother.
In support of the facts set forth in the petition,
it is my misfortune to be witness in chief. Those
whom the petitioner gave to the service of her
* country were my immediate neighbors and
friends. One of her sons volunteered in the
Alabama regiment, in the company commanded
by his tuncie, Captain Galiman. The father and
- two other sons enrolled in my company and
were mustered into the service of the U. States
.at Charleston, and under my command.
Considerations of personal attachment might,
possibly did, influence them in joining the army.
But, sir, the love of our friends is after all but
an~ther name for the love of our country ; for
he who is incapable of the first, will be surely
'found r'ecreant in the piour of his country's need.
The interest I take in the passage of this bill
for the relief of their widowed mother is but a
poor refleelion of the friendship borne to myself
by her noblepone ;- but it constrains'me to do
that for her which she will- not do for herself.
She appeals not to your charity, but to your
*magnanimity. I appeal to both. I come before
you beggingr for bread for the widow. and the
ihftherless. Shte comes in confidence and dignit y,
as the Mothter of this modern Gracchi, and de
mands that hername shall be inscribed in honor
upon .the statutes of her country.
The pittance of eight dollars per month, which
is all that is granted by the bill, is less coveted
byv this lady than the officisl and recorded ac
kcnowledgment of her service to the State ; and
yet, sir, because a few dollars are involved-a
sunm less than a single -hundred for an entire
Tear-apprehension is expressed lest the pre
edent may prove dangerous in the futnre.
Never since this Government was established,
has a claim identical with the peculiar circum
stances ,,f this been presented to the considera
tIon of Congress. In all human probability
another like it will never be presented; and if it
should be. then those of us who admire the
example of this mother--those of us who, in our
country's extremity, would hold up her heroism
as a precedent for every Amerienn mother to
follow-will but obey ar honorable instinet, and
anbserve the best interests of our respective
constituents, when we follow the precedent
which I trust is this day to be established.
Mr. Speaker. there Is a golden mean even in
virtne itself. Prudence may be pushed so far as
to partakre of the infirmItIes of fear, and consti
tutionual constrnetion In regard to the disburse
mnent of public moneys may become so rigid as
to prejudief' nublic virtue by its Imitation of the
meannes' of avarice.
It would be difficult to point out the line, or
the section. .or the article of the Constittution
whiefh anthorizes the purchase of the paintings
which embellish this Capitol ; but, sir, public
contempt would wither the wretch who, by his
vote, would convert Into filthy lucre that por
trait of the savior of his country, [pointing to
the portrait of Washington.] or that of him. his
chosen disciple, (pointing to the portrait of La
Money. sir, is neither the wealth nor the strength
of a State. Virtue. genius, knowledge, courage.
patriotism! these are its treasures, compared
w ~ ith which. in their influence upon popular sen
"timent, gold-gold is even worse than dross.
"111 fares the tand. to hastening ills a arey.
Where wealth accumulates and men decay."
Three centuries ago, when border feuds were
common, a maiden born on the shore of Lake
Constance had gone to seek her fortune in
Switzerland, and learning b'y accident, in the
family in which she was domersticated, that an
assault was intended upon her native village.
under the cover of night ehe took a horse and
- awam the current of the RhIne, and by her time.
lv warning aved her birth-place and people
from ackc and saughter. An enuestrian mon
muent was erected toher honor ; but her heroism
is to this day commemorated by a memorial more
touching. Each night as the watchman goes his
round, when the hour of midnight arrives, he
calls aloud the name of her who, three hundred
years before, awoke the sleeplng inhabitants
and resened them from danger. The historian
appropriately syli. that the fame and miemory
of that girl has given a tone and spirit to the
youth of that little town, which is worth in Its
de.fense a battalion of armed men. T but repeat
the storr: it is for gentlemen of the House
to make the application.
It iA proper that I should state that the peti
tIoner has already received the bounty of the
Government: but these allowances cease on the
4th of March next, when, unless this bill passes.
tahe will he thrown upon the cold charities of
the world. I have stat-d her e.ase wilh as much
brevity as a fall understanding of her claim
Ywould permit, and I now arcpeal to every, gen
tleman who hears met'to vield to the generous
* mpulses which now swell their bosoms, to unite
rith mue In passing this bill with a unanimity
'-which will be as honorable to them as It will be
gratifyfrii to the petitioner.
The claim is so jnet, so peculiar, that I regard
* he'nissage of the bill but as a m,.tter of form,
and J therefore'sask for its third reading, wIth a
- -vie to 3ts immediate passage.
fre: Mes. I have examined this bill, atnd it
aimply 0pyo5'R to pay to this lady eight dollars
a month. NAfter the statament made by the
-gnteman froi South Carolina, I am willing
that relief should be granted, and as the amount
in the bill is small, I move that the word "eight"
be stricken out, and that the word "fifty" be in
serted in lieu thereof. -
Mr. Giddings. It is not in consonance with
my feelings to oppose the passage of this bill.
Mr. Mace. I ask the gentlemn from Ohio to
yield to me a moment, that I may modiry my
Mr. Giddings. I yield simply for that pur
Mr. Mace. At the suggestion of many mem
bers, I will modify my amendmens so as to make
the pension tweniy dollars a month.
Mr. Giddings. I feel disposed, on the present
occasion, rather than oppose the passage of this
bill, to remind our friends hete of the important
subject. which was before us yesterday, and
which will be before us again to-day. At the
time this war was declared, in which this mother
was rendered childless, I was present here. I
foresaw the hearts which would be pained and
tortured, and made to bleed, in consequence of
it. She comes here pleading the loss of her
children; but eighty thousand other mothers,
whose children were as dear and precious to
them as were these to their mother, fell in that
war, and three hundred thousand hearts were
made to mourn the loss of dear friends. Yet,
sir, with these facts before us-for no statesman
could have failed to see them-only fourteen.
members of the House were unwilling to enter
upon that war. Sir, opposition to it was made
a hissing and a by-word. Notwithstanding the
dreadful, the unutterable, and the fearful pain
which it was known would be inflicted upon
the people of this country and of Mexico, these
sons volunteered to go to a foreign country to
strike down ,heir fellow men, but they them
selves were struck down.
Mr. McMullin. I rise to a question oforder.
ebill beore the Hotue is a bill granting a
pension to a certain lady of South Carolina, and
the member from Ohio is discussing the Mexi
can war, and that-is not relevant to the matter
The Speaker. In the opinion of the Chair
the gentleman from Ohio is in order, The propo
sition is to grant a ,pension for services in the
Mexican war, and it is certainly in order for the
gentleman from Ohio to allude to it, so far as he
has done at present.
Mr. McMullin. But nt to discuss the merits
of the %a':
Mr. Sapp. It never had any.
Mr. Giddings. It grieves me to inflict pain
upon my friend from Virginia. Of all men living,
he is the last one whose 'feelings I would injure.
But, Mr. Speaker, I wish to impress upon this
House, what has been urged here for fifteen
years-a change of our policy so as to avoid
war-so that when we have national difficulties
to settle we will arbitrate them as an honorable
pople and an honorable Government should do,
without shedding blood, and without inflicting
pain upon mothers, or children, or friends, or
such vast expense to the people.
I know tbe pain this widow must suffer. I
know the sorrow she must bear. I have myself
seen my friends struck down in battle, and I
have seen the wife made a widow, and her chil.
dken fatherless; and far be it from me to pain
any friend of these fallen men by alluding to
the circumstances under which they fell. Yet
the fact is before us, that these sons went to a
foreign country, and foiowhat 1 Why, sir, to
engage in the horrors of war, to murder their
fellow-men, not because they had done us any
nju', not because the people of Mexico had in
ny manner offended us, not because they had
etracted from our happiness or interest, but for
the purpose, which had been often avowed, to
extend the institution of slavery into Mexico.
Sir, I only rise to renew,the intimation which
made yesterday, that it is time for the people
of this nation to reform the policy of their Gov
ernment, to seek a course of peace and national
arbitration, to disband their Army, lay by the
ot of their Navy, and pursue a course which
shall save the nation from the flood of expendi
ture, extravagance, and corruption which are
sweeping over it, save our people from the snf.
ferig to which human nature is exposed in con
sequence of war, and prevent such a state of
suffering as that to which the gentleman from
South Carolina has alludidita ~iiisei roqueai~
terms. I have no objection to the amendment
of the gentleman from Indiana as modified.
Mr. Orr. The amendment that has been aug.
gested by the gentleman from Indiana emanates,
I have no doubt, from himself, and from the
generosity of his nature, re'sponding to this ap
plition. It is 'for the 'House to determime
whether they will adopt the amendment suggest
ed by him of giving twenty dollars per month,
or will fall back upon the original report. The
House can take its choice 1 think this lady is
entitled to some relief at the hands ot' this Houise,
she having given to the service of the coiutry
her husband and three of her sons. I demand
the previous question on the engrossment. and
third reading of the bill.
Mr. Kennett. I would ingure what pension
the cosanitteoe recommeinds ?
Mr. Orr. Eight dollars per month.
'Mr. Mlatteson. l ask that the report may be

The previous question was seconded,and the
main question o.rdered.
The first question being on air. Mace's amend

The bill was then ordered to be engrossed
and read a third time; and being engrossed, it
was accordingly read the third titne.
Mr. Brooks. 'I ask for the previous question

The previous question was seconded, and the
main question ordered; and undier tbe operation
of the previous question the bill was passed.
lr. Brooks moved to reconsider the vote by
which the bill was passed, and also moved to
lay the motion to reconsider on the tab'e ; which
latter motioni was agreed to.
Yesterdaiy about ten o'clock, a crowd of all
ages, sexes and colors, began to assemble near
the jail, in earnest expectation of seeing the
prisoner, Miclombs, enter the carriage prepared
to convey him to the place of execution. At
ten miputes after twelve o'clock, the prisoner
left the jail, sccompanied by hisi spiritual advisers
and the chief of polie. The carriage was sur
rounded by a detachment from the beat compa
nies, under cotmmand of Lieut. Wood. Soon
after arriving at the place of egution, permis
sion was given by the Sheriff~ to those who de
sired to speak with th~e prisonler, to come forward
and bid him farewell. Several persons availed
themselves of the invitation, and took an affect
ing farewell of the unfortunate man. He was
deeply moved end extremely pale, and appeared
to feel sensibly his awful situation. After re

was in.suffeient to sustain the weight of the
doomed man; it parted, and he fell to the ground.
We have beeni informed, from good authority,
that his neck was dislocated. Inbtantly the
ehe descended from the seaffold where he had
be stnding, and with the aid of two polje
officers and a servant, raised the condemned man
up again, re-adjusted the rope, after which the
support was struck away, and lhe remained ss.
pended from the gallows. At five minutes be

handed over to his friends, an attending physician

THE EVENING NEWS.
This paper han thrown itself into an attitude of of.
fended independence on account of an article of ours,
styled " Jndge Butler and his aceusers," which ap.
peared in the Advertiser of the 16th :stant. The
News remarks of this article: " It ...jerts, in sup
'port of it, appellation, that we have arraigned him
(Judge B.) by f.tudied attacks upon his inconsistency
of conduct and impurity of motiv.es ; and it is calcu
lated justly to excite our surprise by so gratuitous a
fling and to arouse us by the~pe of its rebuke."
We have but little to say in reply to the strictures
of the News; and, to say that little concisely, we beg
pardon for adopting the order and style of arrange
ment which that papersets before us.
" Accusers !" The use of the term was designed to
imply what it always implies in common parlance:
"Those who bring charges against another." Noth
ing more. Had we intended to lay the sin of " ma
levolence" at the News' door, we certainly should not
have indited, in the same article, such language as
the following: " We mal no charge of nnworthy
intentions upon those who hatie thought it right thus to
assault our Senator. Thqt are gentlemen above ALL
trickery and dishonesty.". The conditional taunt of
"graceless"-ness is therefore ratherungracefully made,
and the " retort" is a "spent ball" which has not
- Studied attacks!" Ithe News is deluded in
thinking that we used this expression (in the plu
ral number) wvith reference to itself alone. Our
language was, " studied'attacks of the Evening NarEwa
and Charleston Mztacuar." There was hut one at
tack by each of the~se papers that happened to fall
uder our observation. If the News therefore ima
gines thatire meant to Imply a series of attacks from
-its battery, it is very wide of the mark. We never
-read -but one. And that one we did regard as " studi
ed"-that is, elaborate or carefully prepared. But

made upon Judge BUTLER; and, in so lar as itsmown
piece is concerned, we hpve no objection whatever to
accepting the informati~ The development simply
goes to shiw that it costs ewos.ngtil pains or

-those who " would. now hang upon the skirts" of
Judge BUTLER, will be noticed in another place.
"Impurity of motives !" The phtilosophizing of
the News as to "alarmed conscienc0 s" and "the
characteristics of political demagogueism," isa mysti
fed absractionl whose scope and bearing we neitherap
preciate nor entirely comprehend. If it be meant to
classify ours with " alarmed ccnsciencets," or ourself
with " political demagogues," we too retort the charge.
Thus made, it is certainly as " inapplicable and grace
less" as any thing we have said of the News.-The
iifollowing remark appears in this connection : " We
deny that to arraign Seniator BUTLER for political er
rors or political selfishness. Is to imputlto him that' in
purity of motives' whichimplies personal treachery."
Perhaps not. Neither htd we in onr thtougts " per
sonal treachery," when deprecating the charge of
-impure motives as advartced in several quarters
against Senatot BuTttit The matter was con
steplated in a political not a personal light; and
thus viewed, we hold ary political selfishness, that
could lead a public sesant out of the line of a
Ifaithful discharge of hi: trust, to be impure and,
at least politically, dingr~ceful. Do we understand
.tthe News as making this charge and yet, exculpating
our Senator from " impuity of motives 1" It cannot
if be. The charge, remove t as far from " personal"
,as may be, is a heavy ant a damning one. It is not
-we presume lightly tmade neither will it be readily
ff concurred in as againstthe high-tonea Statesman
-here assailed. For one, 'e believe it can not be sub
r stantiuted from the recort It was this belief that
it, prompted tus to deprecatthe assaults of our Charles
t tn cotempuraries and ottrs. For where is the neces
5e it, or what the merit,'f embittering the hours of
t an old public servar, b3 the prosecution of attacks
ff that must etnd in futility!1 Of Judge BUTLER'8 pat
e riotism, of his devotion o his constituency, of his
-fidelity to the interests <his -sectiotn, the people of
n South Carolina entertaimnot a doubt. Many of us
e there are who differed wh him in .1852, wg differ
with him now ; atul yet a can but be pained at de
jmonstrationsn which indiete a growing disposition in
e one or two quarters to cistrue his laborious services
ninto an abortive career, is honest impulses into po
Slitical trickery. Howe~r the Evening News may
kscoff the ilea, lie has odipied, and still occupies
0 the first place in South Onlina, whether as to posi
Sthin or itnfluence. The httory of our State since the
death of .Mr. Calhoun wild also go to show that
le is first in the affectiL' of his people ; and it was
in thistview that we usedie simile of the " towerinig
eeagle," at which the vening News is pleased to
sneer. Such at all event is the solidity of lis repu-'
rr tation before the State, tle very mitch more will he
required to slhake it titan e mere assertions'anid opin
0 ions of ne wapapers and pdic speakers.
s In regard to the estinte fixed by the Evening
News upon Judge Bumdt.s abilities and qualifica
tions, political and socialre have nothiung to respond.
I-Thousands of South Callitians know that distin
gtished gentleman as wvets does either the News or
the Advertiser ; and wtoonceive that any estimate
'?of it that either of us mig advatnce would scarcely
Sbe looked upon as of great reliability than such as
s ndreds of others could t forward.
We regret that there sbld have been any thing in
or former editorial thatrended by its tone. ,0ur
daim was to conceillate, r to arouse. We did pen
e the reflection, that if thiifforts to arraign Senator
BULr ts had any effect stever, they would (likely)
irre-oil upon thmose whko oinatedl them. The remark
, was neither " authottatis nor + factions." It was
an accidental observati' based upon the general
is fact that all attacks, wIt fail, rebound vyith more
dd or less power upon tima.riginators. That this is
Jr now seized upon as a tlsrand held up as te iracite
i- ment to renewed hostilii, tends but to exhibit an
e existart pre-dhisposilipon tontiue those hostilities..
is What was set forth as remnonstranco lies been
ts snatched up as a gauntle And so far as oijr opInion
may go In the matter (wieak not by authority,) we
:e should say, let the attanow go on as fiercely as
r- Senator BUrr. assalls may choose to press it.
,f We deprecate it no lqpg[He never has done so,

rr lear in the premises, sever muay be the comue
We have only now to notice the concluding sen
tence of the 3rd paragraph in the article before us.
Tie passage is erroneous, if it be meant to assert there
in that we are " hanging upon the skirts" of Senator
BUTLER. While we are far from denying a high de
gree of respect for the man an' a full appreciation of
his noble patriotism, we yet scorn the position of a
hanger-on as much as even the Evening News is ca
pable of doing. Whether ornot the Advertiser is less
independent in its opinions and politics than is the
News, and whether or not Its course is less consistent
.ihan that of the Newi, are questions which we readily
leave to the decision of our brother-journalists through
out the State. We claim to be the Nelvs's equal in all
things pertaining to tne duties and responsibilities of
'our-calling; at the same time we now accord to that
paper (and have done so from time* to time) a fair
character for independence, probity and ability, So
much the greater is our surprise Upon observing the
unnecessary insinuation against us contained inthe
passage just alluded to.
Our inconsistencies ! What are they? If they be
our advocacy of the propriety of the State's being
represented at Cincinnati; if they he our present ad
mission that in the sound Democracy (as things now
stand) there may be hope of protection to Southern
interests; if they be our late earnest endeavors to
place the State in closer affiliation with her southern
confederates: is this, or are these, more unworthy of a
secessionist of 52, than to ly off into the ranks of a wild
new party, first national, then sectional, here one thing,
there another? a party which, more than anything else,
has destroyed the chances of a thoroughly Southern
Clinging to the skirts of Judge BUTLER! We dif
fered with him in the matter of Secession. We differ
with him in that of the Cincinati Conventton.-We
publicly opposed his-course their. We have publicly
dissented from it now, criticizing his very language.
Surely it is not needed to add another word, to show
that this "fling" of our cotemporarf is far more
"gratuitous" than any thing we said, or thought of
saying, in regard to himself.
We close with an expression of regret that we seem
to have been (unintentionally we declare!) the instru
ment of promoting rather thin allaying strife at home.
As we deprecated the attacks upon our Senator, so do
we deprecate further bickerings among ourselves. But
if nothing else will suffice but that South Carolina
be torn into factions, we will do our. rievoir, as best
we may, on w hat we conceive to be the side of com
mon sense and true political sagacity.
A NOTEWORTHY INCIDENT.
THE proceedinga-f the House of Representatives
at Washington, in reference to the pension of as.
MEARY E. TrLLMAN of Edg'field District, will be
found uponranother column, preser.ted at length. It
will be seen that our immediate Representative gave
a glowing exposition of his case and carried it through
triumphantly. The Washington Star, in commenting
upon this incident of federal legislation, uses the fol
The action of the House on Wednesday last upon
the bill granting a pension to Mrs. Mary E. Tillnan
reflects great credit on the soul of that body. This
lady lost her husband and three sons in the Mexican
war; aiid is left with a helpless younger family de
pending on her. Her deadt all fell gallantly defending
their country's flag. The bill, as reported, proposed
to allow her the usual pension of eight dollars per
month. Mr. Brooks, of Sputh Carolina, under whom
the father and two sons volunteered, made one of tne
most beautifol, affecting, and effective speeches in ex
planation of the circumstances under which Mrs. T.
applied for relief from the Government that was ever
uttered on sue-h a anbject in the chamber. Mr. Mace,
to the great credit of his heart, be it wiitten, immedi
ately propsed to inicrease the pension to twenty dol
lars a enionth ; anl, in a few temarks, which won
him great praise from his political opponents, as well
as his friends, materially aided to procure the enact
ment of the bill. '4 ,
/ The course of the Senate upon the same matter was
markedby simnilar promptitude and generosity. An
abstract of thait body's action is hereto appended ;
The following message was received from the House
of Rep'resentatives, by air. BARcL.AY, Assistant Clerk:
Mr. President: The House of Representatives have
passed a bill (11. Rt. No. 279) for the relief of Mary E.
Titiman ; in which they request the concurrence of
Mir. WELLERz. I hope the bill which has just been
received from the Hupe of Representatives will be
taken up an-i put on its pa-sage at once, wiihout being
referred to a committef, it provides..for a')sdy who

The-bill wassread the first and second times by
unanimous consent and considered as in Committee of
ihe Whole. It proposes to allow M~rs. MI. E. Tiliman,
of Somth Carolina, a pension or S$20 per month during
liar natural life, coinmencing Mlarch 4, 1857.
The bill was reported to the Senate without amend
Mr. BE'NxrAIiN, I wish to ask why the bill fixes
the beginrning of the penision so far ahead. I aan in
favor of the hill ; 1 have read the debate on it In the
House of Representatives; and I am very desirous
th ,t it sho~uld be passed ; but why should not the pen

MIr. Brocs. This laity is now entitled to a five
years' petusion which will expire on the 4th of Mlarch,

The bill was ordered to a third reading; and it was

The whole transaction reflects much credit, alike
upon its mover and those who so handsomely sup
POSTMIASTER CAUGHT.-The Postmaster at
Toll Gaite, Matrion county, Alatbatma, was detect
ed lately in piurloining letters from the mail
containing money, and has been commnited ftr
trial. It seemtrMr. Blair the Special Agent
fur the Department. had reason to suspect that
all was not right about the Toll Gate office
that the mail was tolled, perhaps, more thatn
the law allowed. A trap was therefore set, by
mailing various lefters as decoys. After .the
mail hand passed Toll Gate, the Agent examined
it and found the bait gone, and he had the
Posttmaster arrested forthwith. Some of the
money mailed by the Agent was found upon
him. The fellow's name is Cashin, and n e
hope he will get justice. For years past we
have been losing money mailed to us by that
route. To the best of our recollection we
never lost a dollar in thme mail except on the
A berdeen route, via Toll Gate. In one month,
some two years ag'o, we lost some $25 mailed
from different parts oft Mississippi, the lettera
haing to pass thro' the Troll Gate office. Mr.
Cashini had made "a good thitng of it," we
hear, and was getting rich fast whten Mr- Blair
broke into his arriingements.-North Alabamian.

and now around the docks may be seen millions

to investigate ; for, if fish can be cleaned, and
from the spawn hatching can be induced, what
