ThE ORioIN OF "HArI. COLMunI."
-In the year 1708, when patriotic
* eeling, pervaded the country, and
whenthere werei several parties in
the field, Mr.. Fox, a young player,
who was more admired for his vocal
- than -histrionic powers, called on
molaing upon his friend, Mr. Hopkin.
'sonand after stating that tihe follow.
Ing-evening had been appointed for
his ubendit, and expressing a great
fear for the result, as not a single
box had been taken. begged his friend
to do something in his behalf. "If,"
said Fo6, "you will write me some
-patriotio verses to the tune of the
fullient' Mrch,' I feel sure of a
fulos.Several of the people about
the theatre have. atttempted' it, but
they have come to the conclusion that
it cannot be done: yet I think you may
*suceed.'' Mr.' Hopkinson retired to
his study, and in a short time wrote
*the -first verse and chorus, which was
submijtted' to Mrs. Hopkinson, whoi
sang them at a piano accompaniment,
and proved the measure to be comn
patible and in keeping. In this way
the second and other verses were writ.
ten, ;nd when Mr. Fox returned in
the evening, he received with delight
the song as it now stands.
The followving morning, small band.
bills amnounced that Mr. Fox would
sing a new patriotic song, etc. The1
theatre v'as crowded; the song was
sung and received with rapture; it was
repeated eight times, and again en
cored; and when sung the ninth time,
the whole audience stood up and join
ed in thoecho'rus. Night after night,
* "fail Columbia" cheered the visions of
the theatre, ad in a few days it was
the -universal song of the boys in
the streets, from one end of the city to
the other. Nor wvas the distiniguished
author of this truly national song-a
saong'whilch'rset the entire approbation
of all parties of the day-forgott en.
*The street in which he resided on
one occasion was crowded, "and "Hall

*midnight from a hundred patrio.

Fire Persone Injured by a Mad

their descendants:
"A statement appeared in the Re.
public, with reference to a .oontested
case in the P einsion Ollire, (fucting th.
cot ruction heretofore :placel ..up'i
tlb haw granting pen-zions td:doY
ad children of deceased soldiers.
The matter was not at all correctly
stated. aad as it is one of importane,
I give the following as the facts : The
law in question provides that in-case
of the death of the widow of a soldier,
then the pension shall revert to the de
ceased soldier's children. There the
law stops; but Secretary Thomas Ew
ing decided that 'ailthough the aot' 6f
Congress goes no further than to the'
children, te common law steps in and
carries to any other heirs. This decis
ion has governed the matter since.
Gov. McClellind, the present Secreta
ry of the Interior, ' bas, however, de
cided that this construction of the law
is wrong. If the Pension law had
passed previous to the enlistment and
service of the soldier, then it would
have formed a part of his emolument
for service, and as such would come
under the provisions of the common
law, like any other property, to the
extent of even being liable for his
debts. But it was a law passed after
the service had expired, and formed no
part of the contract for service. The
pension is simply a gratuity given by
Congress after the governmect had ful
filled all its agreement and duty to
wards the soldiers, and as such can on
ly be used to the extent the terms of
the act authorized, and wo further.
This cuts off a large number of claim
ants, but the decision is manifestly in
accordance with the law."
Gov. McClelland, the Secretary. of
the Interior, has asked the Attorney
Guneral for an opinion on the point of
law involved.
A THrILLNo INCIDENT.-The old
Ifag-staff at JefTerson Barracks, Mis
souri, having become decayed was or
dered to be taken down a few days
since, and, accordingly, a soldier of
Col. Bragg's battery, named Michail
McAnally. mounted to the cross-trees
and unshipped the top mast; from
some cause it became unmanageable,
and glided through the platform to the
ground. The man at the mast head
kept his post composedly, and give
timely warning below "to stond from
under." Most men with- a spar fifty
feet: long, shooting and rasping like an
arrow through their hands, with an in.
secure footing at a dizzy hiight, would
have "left the. -yard," and tumbled
from the platfoim. While the parity
below were removing the top-mast, to
the disifty and- -consternation o6hti
by otandurs;- he .main-mast with the
soldier at.ill.poised at the tmast-head,
swayed over, broke short oir at the
base, and plunged with a tremendous
crash to the ground. The soldier, in
the meantime, was seen to change iis
position as the mast went over, anid
cireling high through the air with
frightful velocity, he, with perfect self
possession, . adjusted hiimzself to clear
-the framework of thec cross-trees, and
as the mast neared the ground, he, ex
idently, with a measured leap, alighted
amidst his comrades. All were start
led with amazement, as much by the
intrepidity displayed as by the immi
aent peril it averted. The main-mast
was forty-cight feet high; the solditer
landed at fifty from its base.
"AORCUTLTURAL EDUCATJON."-The
Southern Central Agricultural Society
offered a premium of A Silver Pitcher,
of the value of $50, for the best essay
on Agricultural Education, at their
Fair of 1851--but no essay being
handed in, the offer was repeated, and
Mr. Edmund Ruffin who has contribu
ted so much to the advancement of
Scientiffie Agriculture, being at, the
time the guest of the Society, was re.
quested to write on some subject--en
titled to a premium--and at the
Fair of 1852, !is essay on Agricultur
al Education was presented with
five others. The Committee to whom
they were referred, have allotted the
premium to Mr. Rutlin, with the re
quest that as it is calculated to
do much good, the Society would
immediately have it published, which
has been done. We have received
a copy, but have not yet had time to
fully peruse it, but we have no doubt
that if the suggestions of this dis
t-iguished gentleman are follow
ed, that the Schools will be as
nseful and advantageous to the Ag~ri
culture of the country, as the West
Point Academy has been to the Mili
tary knowledge of the United States

NAVAt CLAws-The late acts of
Congress giving extra pay to those
who were ini the nauval service of the
United States during the war with
Mexico, embrace tall officers and sea
men of the navy; ofileers, non com
missoned officers, musicians and pri
vates of the marino corps, as also all
who were ini the revenue service, aind
it is bel:eved that the amount required
to liquidate claiurs ander these acts
will exceed three millions ofdollars.

"Who is that?" and we pointed to
the figure that was basking in the sun
shine. "'~'.y, that is Pierce Butler

Andrew a ikens." Just then, Gen

and a moment afterwards the cav

charging down ion us ut a full

LUNATIC ASYLUM AT COLUMIA.

"We attended divine service on
Sundayr. at half-past 3 o'clock, P. M., I
it the Lunatic Asylum; and must say C
a more melancholy sight we have nev- n
d
ar witnessed. Here were assembled
i number of unfortunate sons and t
laughters of Adam, whose intellectual
faculties were diseased upon almost a
3very matter, save their duty to visit a
the house'of God, and worship him in I
spirit and in truth. As their pastor n
proceeded in the exercises pertaining r
to his office, they seemed to regard him i
with peculiar affction. - We were
struck with the melancholy exhibited i
in the face of a female, and from the
ervency with which she sang, and her a
frequont sighs. we were under the in
pression that it was a religious melan
eholy preying upon her mind. We
found Dr. Parker, the resident physici
an and superintendent, at his post, and
disposed to give us all the informa- t
tion asked for. We trust that the
State will always cherish and foster
this noble institution." t

A's t6 this question, I happen to. know.
iat the adminiistration have not given
ny encouragement to a plan now on

The fishery question is already in a
sir train of adjustment, so much so,
hat the Canadian authorities are con

Iritish concessions, a reciprocity of

mminent danger of a war with Mexi

Col. McCall resigned, recently, the

Imong the applicants for it are, as 1
Darn, Col. May, and General Sumner,
nd several other distinguished officers.
'he post must be given to an offieer
elected from the line. The pay is that
fa Colonel, with . perquisites and
ravelling expenses. It is considered,
the Army, as a creditable and desir
ble post. It throws an ufficer out of
tie line, for the present, but not in case
f a war, when new regiments will be
mised.
The Gardiner ease is coming to
