COLUMBIA, July 14, 1849.
MADAM: The Legislature, at its last see- a
sien, directed the Governor "to procure and
cause to be presented, on behalf of the State,
some appropriate meniorial to the. widow of
the late Lieut. Col. Dickinson, as evidence of ,
the deep regard and admiration of the State
for the lamented and distinguished dead. t
In the performance of the honorable yet I
melancholy duty assigned me, I herewith t
transmit, and ask your acceptance of, seven I
p:eces of silver, constituting a tea and coffee 1
service. Receive them, madam, as a slight
testimonial of the high estimation in which r
South Carolina held one of the gallant defend. r
ors of her fame; preserve them us a neinorial I
of his patriotic zeal and heroic conduct on eve- t
- ry occasion demanded by duty and danger.
Lieut. Col. Dickinson lived a brave, skilful
and humane officer, and received his nprtal
wound at his post, where lie was always to he. H
found. Although no token of the gratitude
of the Commonwealth can dissipate the grief r
engendered by your bereavement, still tho ,
hope is indulged that the one I now. fowarJ, I
will. while it recalls the most endearing do.
mestic associations, be considered and held I
by you as the reward of honorable merit be. I
stowed by a sovereign St.tte upon a citizen
soldier, once your bosom friend, but now, I a
trust, the companion of his God. a
With sentiments of respectful regard, I
have the honor to, be your obedient servant, n

[hey have now, the second time, been con
telled to flee for their lives, and have now
,one to Key Vest. They discovered the
pproach of the Indians in time to make their
scape. One or two Companies of troops are
ow stationed at Indian River, and if the in

oped they will meet with a warm receptiom.
The steamer Nina proceeds this day to Pa.

The Rev. J e Le6a.
The unjust a uncalled' for

peared itithe pubie prints, on thy chaacter!
of the Rev. Diowe and John' ilggratoi
Wilson, has been proni pty repolleirtifei
authors very properly rebuked by a just ;butt
watchful press. The reputation of these'two
linisters,'for warm and. undeviating attach
ment to Southern rights and Southerti1 rest
stands above suspicion. And'an enlightened
public will not consent, that these two true
hearted Southerners should be .mode the vie
tims of 51r.Mittags, unfortunate deposition
which leads him, in his zeal to overthrow an
argument to use every means to overwhelm
his adversary also in its ruins. Perhaps en.
ough has already been said on this subject,
but we must be permitted. to say cue word as
to the character of Mr. Wilson.
Though at present absent as a Missionary'
Mr. Wilson is a natiye of South Carolina,
and a native of Sumter District; he is connec
ted with .one of the largest and most respecta
ble families in our District and we may say
in the State, who would rise as one'man to
defend the institutions and rights of the South
-and lie has been 'educated in ourmidat
and enjoys a reputation as yet untarnished,
saved by this ungenerous insinuation of Mr.
To the question of the unity or diversity of
Races, as a subject for Physiological or Theo
logical discussion, we have no objection; but
we do object to it as theme for the indulgence
of invective, and on which to awaken ground
less suspicions against our worthiest citizens;
aud we solemnly pratest against its being
dragged upon the arena of an angry political
discussion and being made the instrument of
of exciting differences of opinion, upona sub.
ject, on whirh the. heart of the Southern pee
ple should beat with but one pulsation.
The personalities of Mr. Mittag are entire.
ly irrelevant to the issue between himself and
Dr. Howe, and that issue itself an immateri
al one upon the great question of the moral
justi'ce of the institujtion of slavery. That in.
stitution is justified by the great lawy of self
preservation-it is justified by the O!d Testa
ment-it is justified by the New Testament
and justified by every principle of the moral
law. Its foundation cannot be shaken.
Mr. Mittaghas attainments of no ordinary
stamp, and wd have always read his produc
tions with interest. lie throws light on ev
ery subject which he touches.
