COLUMBIA^ S. C.
Wednesday .'domini?. January 13. 1869.
The telegraph occasionally refers to tho
"Sue Murphy" claim as being discussed
before Congress. This is the claim of a
Indy residing in Northern Alabama for pay
for supplies taken by the Federal army dur?
ing tho war. The loyalty of the lady, wo
believe, is not questioned. The fact that
the supplies were taken and used by the
army is not deuicd. Tho justice of the
claim is admitted, But Congress will not
pass a bill ordering pay meut. And why?
Becauso the members Ray that the Govern?
ment owes so many of these kiud of debts
that it is not able to pay them. It owes so
much that it won't pay nny. If this is not
repudiation, what is it?
John Minor Botts, whose death was an?
nounced on Saturday, was boru in Prince
William County, Virginia, in 1802. sud was
at the age of eighteen, admitted to thc bar.
He retired after a few years to his farm in
Henrico County, but was a member of thc
State Legislature from 1833 to 18 li), and a
representativo iu Congress from 1839 to
1843. He was a warm friend of Henry
Clay, and was one of the earliest and mosl
vigorous denouncers of what he considered
??the tergiversation of Mr. Tyler. Mr. Botts
was re-elected to tho thirtieth Cougress, bul
aftee its close retired from public life. Dur
ing tho war, he maintained a sort of neu?
trality betweon tho Union and tho Confede?
rate interests, but has been since its close i
supporter in tho main of the congressional
policy of reconstruction.
Thc United States load the world in tin
manufacture of first-class fire-arms-a fae
?which the public is apt to lose sight of ii
consequence of tho immense .puffery of th
Prussian needle-gun and the French Chasse
pot rifle. It is, however, susceptible o
proof that tho Remington, Peabody, Win
cheater, Spencer, Colt and Sharpe gun fae
tories aro constantly engaged in supplyiuj
European Governments. One mauufactur
ing firm has just delivered 40,000 rifles t
the Danish Government and 30,000 to th
Swedish, having still a contract on hand t
furnish 15,000 of tho same sort to th
Greeks. Another firm has just dolivere
20,000 rifles to the Cuban Government, t
be used against tho insurrectionists, w hil
still another has contracted to make 30,00
breech-loaders for tho Russians. The di

PLEASING AFFAIR.-By special invitation,
a number of the personal friends of Maj.
Walton assembled ut the Pollock House,
last, nigh!., to partake of a supper, and bid
goo 1-bye to that gentleman-whn, in a fnw
days, will depart for Virginia, to take up his
residence in his old home. Maj. Walton
has resided in Columbia three years, and,
us he expressed himself, ''felt confident he
had made many friends." The party sat
down to the table about half-past 9; but the
short hand on the dial pointed towards the
highest number ere they finally separated.
Tho supper was provided by Mr. Pollock,
and a moro tempting display of good things
could hardly bo conceived of. Without
attempting to give, a bill of fare, wo will
merely mention some of tho articles on the
neatly arranged table: There was turkey,
partridges, ham, tongue, chicken salad, fish
in several styles, oysters, celery, pickles and
other condiments; jellies and cakes; besides
fancy articles innumerable; not forgetting
champagne and cold punches. And, from
actual observation, wo can positively assert
that ample justice was done by ono and all.
FAST AND CHEAP PR?STINO.-We have
addod a fast card press-of the Degener k
Weiler patent-to the machinery of the
Phonix office; and have also made additions
to our stock of fancy type, cards, paper, etc.
Persons in waut of auy styles of book and
job printing, are invited to call and examine
samples and prices. Cards printed at short
Sotice, and at prices varying from S3.50 to

exceptions. If an advertisement is to be

subscribed for, tho money must accompany
tho order-otherwise no attention will bo
paid to them. This rule will .bc adhered to.

I When the PLANTATION BTTTEBH wero first
I made known to the American people some
sevon years ago, it was supposed that they
I were au entirely new thing, and had never
before been used. So far as their general
I use in tho United States is concerned, this
may be true. It is also truo that the same
Bitters wero made and sold in the Island of
St. Thomas, over forty years ago, as any
old planter, merchant r sea captain doing
business with the )Vesl Indies will tell you.
It is distinctly within my recollection that
on the retnrn of my father (who was a sea
captain, and doing an extensive trade in
the tropics,) he would invariably have these
Bitters among tho ship's stores, and our
family side-board was never without them.
For any sickness, it matters not how sovere
or trifling, tho decanter of these Bitters, by
a different name, was always resortod to as
a sovereign remedy.
