In the year 1708, 'when patrioti

-the second and other verses were wril

the evening, he received with deligh
the song as It now stands.
The following morning, small hanel

sing a new patriotic song, etc. Th
theatre was crowded; the song wva
sung and received with rapture; it wa
repeated eight times, and again er

The matter was not at all 'corroctf
stated, and as it is one of import-an.
I give the following as the facts : Ti1
law in question provides that 'in cas,
of the death of the widow of a sold-ei
then the pension shall revert to the de
ceased soldier's children. There th,
law stops; but Secretary Thomas Ew
ing decided 'that although the act"
Congress goes no further than to th
children, the common law steps in an
carries to any other heirs. This decie
ion has governed the matter since.
Gov. McClelimnd, the present Secretfl
ry of the Interior, 'has, however, d
cided that this construction of the laN
is wrong. If the Pension law hai
passed previous to the einlistnent an
service of the soldier, then it woul<
have formed a part of his emolumen
for service, and as such would con
Wider the provisions of the commoi
law, like any other property, to th
I extent of even being liable for hi
debts. But it was a law passed afte
the service had expired, and formed n
part of the contract for service. Th
I pension is simply a gratuity given b;
Congress after the governmeet had fu:
filled all its agreement and duty t<
wards the soldiers, and as such can or
ly be used to the extent the -terms c
the act authorized, and no further.
This cuts off'a large number of clait
ants, but the decision is manifestly i
accordance with the law."
