.tlitors of Southern Standard :
The Senate wasted nmch of the lat
ter part of last week, in a very small
game-in discussing the relative sums
finding their wary from the National
Treasury into the pockets of General
Scott and Pierce. The point sought to
be att.ained by the mover, Mr. Merri
weather, and his advisers, is doubitless
to show that Scott has received ten
thousand dollars, where Pierce has
received one thousand thus. This may
be true enough ; for Scot t has been
hearly five times as long in the service
of the General Government, as ever
Fierce was, and for some I went v vears
or more, under a commission, allowing
him to receive legally, large pav, But
thot too large for the olice lhe ~ -
in all, he has received about a .rter
of a million, for which, it should be re
nembered, ie served his count ry near
ly half a century. It. is, indeed, sttal
game to be thus hunting up his private
accounts with the government., when it
is not alledged that he has ever re
ceived a dollar illegally from the pub
lie treasury. IIis unsuccessful at teipt
to induce Congress to put him on the
invalid pension list, when ivell enough
to demand and receive fttll pay for ac
tive service, is a horse of another color,
and does not look well in view of the
fact, that he was then in the receipt of
some *6000 per annum front the pub
lie cofliers. The pension lists are fonr
the needy, and those who are disabled
my wounds or sickness contracted in
the service, as to incapacitate thenm
from discharging duties entitling them
to pay 'for active services, or otlterwise
to earn a livelitood.
tou-will perceive, that some of the
inemliers of both houses are alrealy
making buncombe out of the fisheries
question-yet it is the veriest humbun
out of which public excitement has
been generated for years past. The
Iossuth huminnug was not even a
match for it. The Lobos Islands ques
tion, however, is rapidly coming to
overshadow it in importance Ier, for
there is really serious grounds to fear
that, unless skilfully managed, it may
involve us in a labvrinth of iliculties.
I dread Mr. Webster's dliplomiacy in
this connection, believing thtat lie is
tery much disposed to use it as a
staulking horse, otn which to ride his
reputatoni oif trucklitng habituiality to
btritain, which has stuck to him like
the shirt of Nossus, ever sinice lie be
eamec a promntent pubcic~ main. It is
gtenerally .believedl, in WVashningtton,
thtat he hans the right, of' this atllair.
Yet, the impression is also prtevaleint.

The Vote of Soutie Cnarolinag
We copy the following well-timed
and well-written article from the
Keowee Courier. The Courier is
published at Pickens C. II., and may
be regarded as expressing the opin
ions of the independent and intelli
gent yeomanry of that mountain Dis
trict ; not only so, but of the whole
" We have often been asked with
in the last two weeks if South Caro
lina would cast her vote for the De
mocratic nominees ; and have as re
peatedly said, we have no doubt
about it. Our reasons are that South
Carolina is Democratic by an over
whelming majority; and Frank Pierce
will represent her political creed fully
on this head. In regard to his poli
cy on the slavery question, we have
no hesitation in saying that he is the
best the South can do, and will, if
elected throw his name and influence
against any attempt by any section
to create agitation, or disturb any of
the compromises of the Constitution.
If the Electors were chosen by the
people we think that Pierce and King
would carry South Carolina ten to
one. But, unfortunately, the Legis
lature has to elect for us, and though
there is in our opinion more uncer
tainty in the vote of this body, yet
we believe that the State will vote
for the nominees.
" We see no reason why our State
should stand aloof and have neither
part nor lot in any of the Federal
affairs ; as long as we are in the
Union let us act, and make the best
of our lot. But we are here met
with the assertion that we can do no
good for ourselves or any body else
by entering into the Presidential
election, or continuing our represen
tation in Congress. We believe not
a word of it, and we have but little
ympiathy in gnnonr wjh thoes.wlg.
say they have detcruind on their
course, and that let others do as they
may, as for their part, they will neith
er rote for a member of Cungr-ess,
nor take aniy part whatever in Fede
ral affairs ; or, in shor-t, that they
individually have seceded, and have,
so far as they ar-e concerned, set up
in and for themselves an independent
govermunent. That ther-e are any in
our State who take such a cour-se is
the result of the Legislatur-e tr-ans
acting all the Feder-al business for- the
piecople, doing all the voting and ma
king ever-y four yers a Pr-esidenit for
them. No oneC can make us believe
that if the people had this election,
which is their rig1ht, but what aill
thlese men would co-opel-ate, and find
that something could be done by ta
king our- sharc in Federal polities.
We hope that the time is rapidly
nearmig when the people will have
their righits given them, and shall, as
frecemeni, cast their own votes for
President and Vice-Pr-esidenit."

I Speaking of that great man's con

revenue gushed forth, lie touchued
the dead corpse of the public credit,. -
and it, sprung upon its fiet"
W Vhenu we first, read Mr. Webster's

beautifulh figures could not be im

however, in the following extract fronm
