The True Iawardness of the Pension Arrears
To the Editor of the (ews and
Courier On thie 25th of J-anuary,
Mr. H1ayes approved the "Arrears of
Peosion Bill," thus mak;ng it the
law. Every mail since has broiht
te one, or more letters from friends in
Suuth Carolina expressing gratifica
tiou at this fact. and iuquiring how
the writer should proceed to secure
his (o'r her') back pay, for he (or she)
pensionler. had becen in tire SeminOle,
Black IIawk, Mexicau or some
othrer war, with which the "Arrear
bill" had nothing to do. Before this
reaches you their hopes will have been
blasted, but it may not be amiss to
publish a few thoughts upon tire sub
ject of pensions, as our people at the
South are morbidly sanguine that the
present Congress will give many of
them material relief by passing pen
slon laws. which will apply to South
erm as well as Northern soldiers who
were in wars anterior to 1861.
Ini 1871 (1 think) a pension law
was enacted granting a pension to
every soldier who had been disabled,
(or his rersnaieif he had been
killed) ":in the war wsged for the supo
pression of the rebellion." Of course
this meant only Federal soldiers. The
day of payment of the pension was
to date froim the passage of thre law,
and all soldiers who did not within
five years from that date apply for a
pension were to be debarr'ed.
The "Arrears of Pension Bill"
amends that law so as to date the day oi
payment hack to the day of the death
or wonding of the soldier, and me
Lmoves the five years' restriction. So.
if a soldier was wounded at the firsi
~battle of Manassas and is drawing bul
88 a month, 'this bill gives him ad.
ditional pay of nearly $1.000 in th<
aggrete~t. There are over 300.000 o1
these pensioners, and threir numbei
dwill now be gr'eatly increased by th<
removal of the five years' restrictior
and this lumping off to them of tet
years' pay at one payment.
No one estimates that it wi!! requir<
les,s that 830000.000 to pay thes<
arrearages, anid some say it will r'e
quire -ilI l of 100,000,000J. Thre on13
obstructioui now in the way is th<
passage~ of abill to app~ropriate muon
to meect theo (cdtiUd of hsa arr.

with ech other in appropriatio-, the
money will be required to cone forth,
and the man who chews tobacco or
takes Uni o.casional glass of grog will
have to pay that much more for his
quid a his toddy.
The surviving voluntecr soldiers of
the war are rcallv a power n tie land.
and the tw.- parties North are vicinu
with each other to secure their votcs,
so this arrears pension matter is n1o,
and cannot be considered, a just clain
upon the treasury of the United
States; but is virtually, if n6t realy, a
political measure advocated by either
party to defeat the other. Neither
will gain or deserve special credit, and
so "honors will be easy."
A few more words upon the general
question of pensions. On the 9th
March a law was enacted to pension
the surviving soldiers of the war of
1812. Would you believe it, there
are on file now in the penision office
more than 26,000 applications fur
pensions under that bill ? I did not
think this could possibly be the case.
but so it is. Human longevity has
been admirably illustrated since the
passage of that bill. As I have re.
celved what appeared to ie to be a
fair proportion of these pensiou claims
from tie veterans of the war of 1812, 1
tive wultiplied that number by 292,
tLe number of representatlves upon
the fior of the TTousC, and fild that
t p)roduet is little more tian o,e
third the reported number of appli
C!nts. I have wtildered where teicse2

I sioning the survivinz Soldiers of tle
Seminohe or Mexican wars. These
wars were fought principally by South
ern soldiers, aA this will be another
reason why petsion will uever be paid
to their veterans. When the pension
bill relating to these wars was recently
under consideration in the -Duse,
some one moved to amend by adding a
clause granting a pension to every vol
unteer soldier who was in the Federal
army from I8G1 to 1864, inclusive
Would you believe it, it passed by ae
lamiation, which really killed the pen
sion bill ; and therefore I can but say
to the Southern survivors of the
florida, Black Hawk or Mexican
wars, possess your souls in patience,
for I do not believe the Forty-fifth
Congress will award you one dolla- for
the duty you performed or the ex
posure and risk yon suffered for "our
There is another pension bill yet to
be reported to the House, which re
stores to the pension roll those men
and their widows of the South who
were once on the roll, but were
strickeu from it by an act passed in
February, 1862. Whether it will be
reported this Congress I am uniable to
say. And if reported, whether it will
become law. no one now can tell. You
have hoard of the man who said no
one but a Creator could anticipate
what would be the verdict of a jury.
You or I could diagnose the hidden
verdict of a half dozen juries, even
South Carolina post belluan juries,
easier than we could anticipate the
fate of a bill in the Forty-fifth Con
gress, unless it were a bill known to
be for the benefit of the entire North.
I do not believe the bill restoring
Ithe Southerners to their rights will
pass; first, because the R~epublican
party do not think we have any rights
that they are bound to respect ; and
seondy, because the Northern De
iocracy are so nearly of the same
oiio tathywill not oppose the
Republicans in order to favor us of
Ithe South. The National Democracy
to day are practically divided by the
Ptomnac and the Ohio, and unless
something is done to remove thIS line
of division~ before 188, I can see no
.1reason why Grant or somec other nomi
inee of the Repuiblican party may not
walk without :n,olestation frOm private
life straight into the \\inte-uUse.

usually. but not aljways unmarried.
Thev n.eet at each others houses every
week or fortigiIht where the young
lady hostess is expected to have in
readiness a supper prepared by her
elf. Smetines the supper may be
'old, agaiu it is warm, and as may be
va!zined a demi-toilette is considered
:Iuit- dressy enough. Now comes in
: chance too, for the wearing of en
3hantingly pretty little aprons, and 'tis
an opportunity which is not neglected.
1he bill of fare is arranged in this
wise. Each member writes out one
n a menu- card, and deposits the
;ae in a box, from whence it is af
terwards drawn out at rando:i, and
the supper prepared according to the
card drawn. Every lady has further
more, the privilege of inviting a gen.
tleman, and altogether these little af
fairs are as interesting and as profita
ble as may be imagined.
Again we find it quite as fashion
able to walk as to cook. The club
bein: formed of both ladies and gen
tieien, at certain days they meet at
an appointed rendezvous and set out
on a tVur of so many miles. Morn
in is the usual time for these walk
in matches, and a stout luncheon
ordered in advance is prepared at some
country hotel or farm house. Those
who are unable to return by foot, have
carriages inD waiting. Perhaps the
comfortable and decidedly strong
minded looking ulstors of giay or
brown which ire now so fashionable
havOl had something to do with the
present faney for walking ; perhaps
'tis the fancy for walking which brings
about the demand for ulsteri. A t any
rate they are greatly patronized and
as a practical garment I can hardly
say too much in praise of them. They
seem just the things in which to do
battle with the slush and snow and
besides this they are economical, for
one eau wear a dress whose best days
have departed, and who is to know
anything about it, for the ulster covers
it all up. So do the circular wraps of
thick woolen cloth, but then a wrap
deprives one of the use of one's arms
and is a balky garment for all slender
figures. Still a wrap is so easily
thrown off or on, that it therefore
must be regarded as very convenient.
Writing of street costumes reminds
mec of a tasteful outfit recently worn
by Miss W-, of ?dadison Avenue.
The design was a Carita princass
Iress with Atheliue jacket, made up
in dark green plaid trimmed with
black vclvet. Hecr younger sister, a
pretty school girl still in short dresses,
wore a dress of figured wool combined
with brown velvet made with cefin
overskirt and B3arbara jacket. A
walking costume worn by Mrs. A--,
of Thirty-third Street, deserves men
tion. The skirt of course was short
with plaited flounces of garnet satin,
and with this was worn the Lucinide
polonaise made in combination style
of garset satin and brocade. The
bonet was a garnet felt trimmed with
satin ribbon and ostrich sips.
One may walk a long distance on
Broadway or Fifth Avenue, or may
survey an entire assemblage at a
theare or concert, and see not a
flower upon a bonnet or hat. Yet one
large rose, or a bunoh of roses or violets
at the throat give an exceedingly wo
m~aniike fiTish not only to an indoor
toilette, but to the masculine ulsters
ust mneutionsed. The adoption of
tule strings brought under the chin
and tied in the most beccomingof bows
is another way in which we show that
inliation' for delicacy of finish,
which grows spontaneously in the fe
uale heart. There is a rage for them,
and they are attached to bonnets of all
kids-even dark colored felts or vel
vets. Vels of white tulle are also
(uite fashiionable, and sometimes the
two ideas are united by bringing the
veil over the face, crossing it at the
back and tying the ends in a bow
under the chin. Breton lace of fine
quality is also used en bonnets, giving
a softened finish to,the severity of ai

We o.tive in the leading news
papWr.s of 1late a go"'d deal of sensi
ble talk on the S;J1bject of adver
tising. Much of it is contributed
by ]eading advertisers themselves,
who have h:ad large and expen
sive experience, and have kept
such a carefil and intell1irent re
cord of their costs and results of
the various kinds of -.dvertising
that their testimony amounts to
a practical demonstration. They
have tried all methods, from the
stereopticon and the street-car
placard, to the big white painted
lettei s on fences and the periodical
hand-bills stuffed with advertise
ments, and shoved under the doors
or into the pockets of pe-ope who
never open them. The testimony
of all these experienced men en
forces the conclusion that, for a
genuine, effective advertising me
diumn, which is sure to bring a
prompt and liberal return for thre
money invested, there is nothing
comparable for a moment with the
columns (f a live, interesting
newspaper, to which the intelli
grent and well-to do p)eople of a
community look for news and
opinions upon current events. We
venture to say that every busi
ness man in Cleveland, who has
made a trial of the various meth
ods of advertising under discussion,
has reached the same conclusion.
The day of illustrated placards,
alman aes, and "advertisers' direc
tories," is past in this country.
The business has been overdone,
fortunes been wasted in it, and
the barrenness of results from all
such outlays has prejudiced some
classes of business men against
the whole subject of advertising.
This prejudice is, ho wever, but lim
ited and temporary, and the tide of
initellige nt opinion is settling back
to fis principles-that is, in fa
vo ffresh, well-written and at
tr-active advertisements, frequent
ly changed in form and inserted
in the leading newspapers of the
community that the advertiser
desires to reacb.
Money judiciously expended in
this way is never lost, and it often
brings a return of ten, twenty, or
fifty fold. TVhe influence and
range of the newspaper are broad
ening and deepening day by day.
The journa'ism of the LUited
States has ripened and improved
in tone and character more during
the past ten years than it hadi
done in the pious fifty. We
are a busy people, and have little
time or taste for long stories. The
increased range and variety of the
newspaper are trenching upon the
domain of the book publisher, the
p)ulpit, and the lecturer. More
and more, year by year, the daily
and weekly journal is furnishing
almost the sole reading matter of'
a large prloportion of the people.
For exactly this reason its value
as an advertising medium is in
creasing day by day. We say
this from no merely selfish motive,
but because it is true, and it is to
the interest of business men who
are preparing to spread their sales
to the spring breezes of return
ing pr-osperity, that they bear- it
in mind. Money spent in adver
tising may be wasted or bring
golden fruitage, according to the
1degree of intelligence with wbhich
it is dispensed. Put it into a good,
live, popular newspaper, which
will carry you r advertisement to
