Isthe Pension Law Unjust?
Mn. Enrron:-In your issue of 8th
Feb'y, your piece beaded The Pension
Law Unjust, after criticising our le;
islators, you branch out on poor sol-''
diers. You say the law savors too
much of supporting mendicancy; that
the soldiers who deserve the pension
are those who have something. We
venture there is not one who lost a
limb, and has accumulated property,
but had something when they came
out of the war. You have thrown a
bomb in the camp of the. poor Con
federate soldiers. You have given
them a weapon to stab you with. How
about the poor soldiers who came out
of the war without a scratch, and are
still poor to-day. They must cer
tainly be worse than mendicants.
We did not think there was a man in
South Carolina who would wish our
soldiers to be beggars. You certain
lv do as you say pension the few, very
few, if not by the State, then by their
neighbors. We would like for you to
mention a few who asked the State to
peusion them. Our soldiers have
been silent ever since the war closed, I
not asking for a ceut, and now to be
accused as beggars or recommended
to beg their neighbors, is too bad1; its
Now, Mr. Editor, do you wisi your
paper to prosper ? if so, take our
word for it, you let soldiers alone.
You have subscribers all over the I

assertions are too broad.

Mn. Emron:--After an abscrm.- of
several weeks, I propose to fuinto

weekly, my usual dots. As spring ad
vances I may be able to gather items
of news of more general character to
everybody. For everything seems
mionotonous-scarcely anything to
write, except rain. This might justly
be called a rainy week. It almost
excells any time we have ever known,
for farming operations. Lands are so
boggy, that if the rain stops, a week
must elapse before plowing can be re
sumed. The wet weather has caused
much delay. Instead of getting ready
to plant we all have to ditch. There
is really some uneasiness felt as to the
future prospects of the farming inter
est of the community, because of so
much rain. It is impossible to fore
see what will be the character of the
