"Nyu-e. to Parlv's arbitrary way, W' follow Truth bci-e'tMke ft ibe way.' Cjyj r- T TII PENSION BILL. The old icililicrV pfiusion bill, which aitintrotf ucevl into Congress liy John JI. Savage, of tbV State, and relied upon by him to secure his return to the 'House, seems to be very generally and heartily condomed by all parties out of Congress, and the indications are that it will not receive the concurrence of the Senate, The Baltimore Amer ican says'that the vote for the bill in the LIuusft is.tacitly acknowledged to have been given from various rcaHons, few of which had any reference to the justice of the measure, and with, the general anticipation that it would amount to nothing more than a mere compliment, whilst the Senate would effectually save the country from the needless expenditure the bill would subject it to. The inconsiatciicyjof such action with the standard of high mor ality that should influence our nation al legislators needs scarcely to bo poin ted out. The danger arising from it is already manifest in the fact that the bill, before regurded as having scarce ly a claim to respectful consideration, is now urged on the Senate as a meas ure sanctioned by the representative branch of Congress anil not to be neg lected except to the damage of the cause of justice find the rndangerment of the popularity of Senators. Per .haps thede inducements and threats may prevail, but we shall "still look 'to tho Senate" with hope for the defeat of a bill both unjust anil extravagant. ''It is unjust because, except in some special cases where extraordinary services were performed or extraor dinary privations were undergone, the soldiers of the last war have been lib erally paid. The government lias already given to them from forty to 'one hundred and sixty acres of land, according to the length of service, in addition to the pay they got at the titne the service was rendered. The men who served in the revolutionary war, with scanty or no pay, and with no land bounties, received no such pen sions as arc provided in this bill. Those who served less than six months received nothing per annum, instead of fifty dollars. Those who served from six to twelve months received forty-eight dollars, instead of seventy five; and with them it took two years' service instead ol one to entitle to ninety-six dollars. This discrimina tion in favor of the soldiers of the last war, whose sacrifices anil 'risks anil privations and hardships are. not wor thy of being mentioned the same day with the old continentals, is altogeth er unwarrantable. ' "The extravagance of the measure j equally indisputable. It will call for an annual expenditure, according to Uio estimate of the Commissioner ,of Pensions, of about eleven millions of dollars, and judged by the public experience in relation to other pen siou bills, is likely to exceed that amount. The Revolutionary Pension llill of 1618, according to its friends, was to involve an expenditure of about 9120,000 per annum; but in fact the payments that year ran up $710,001), nnd the year after to over three mil lions. The Pension Mill of 1 M.'lvi was to apply, it was calculated, to about ten thousand persons, with an expen diture of $000,000. The whole num ber who were admitted to its bene lits was 33,114, nd the next year their drafts upon the treasury exceeded live millions of dollars. And a like ex perience will folio v the passage of this bill. The claimants will start up Jay hundreds in every portion of the country, and an army of pensionaries will advance in solid plulanx under its cover to an annual attack upon the jtreasury. The necessities of these jpojdicrs or their descendants may bo urged, but there is no more justice in making the government a vast elee mosynary institution for their aid than for any other class of citizens who may have failed of that success in Jife which was needed to place them bryon I want There is no service they did to warrant any such bounty, and if there were, the treasury is in no condition to bear it at the present time, and with our largely inoreasing national expenses, is not likely to be so hereafter. Those who were in any way disabled during their service in the war already enjoy pensions, and these are all that have any just claim upon their country's generosity for pecuniary reward, if an additional freaion were needed why the Senate should refuse to burthen our already exhausted treasury with this enormous annual encumbranoe, it might be found (a the fact that the great majority 0f the parties to be benefited are not pressed by poverty, and do not need he aid conferred. ' This was well es tablisbed by the statement of a mem bef of the House, made during the tfeDaU, lhat 'of fifty old soldiers who siamed a petition lor this identical Jwnaion bill. each, with fire excrp tloos, was worth from IflOO to twenty- fye thousand dollar,' The editor of tho Fayctteville Ob server says times are getting easy and money plentiful over at his town, and says he knows this to be so, because a larger number of his subscribers than usual are paying up their arrearages, and forayoarin advance. He says this is an infallible rule; Now, wo advise the good people of Franklin county to never complain or "hard times" or scarcity of money, for both of these evils they can ward off by doing unto us as tho subscribers in Lincoln coun ty are (Join? unto Wallace of the Ob server. Now, this is not a dun don't say it is, for really it is not. Howev er, we but wen, just think as you please about it. Our thanks are duo lion. Geo. W.

W e understand that as the train on tho Winchester and Alabama Railroad was passing over the Uniting Fork bridge, near the town of Winchester, yesterday, the bridge gave way, precipitating be neath, the engine and one passenger car. The engineer was severely in jured, one passenger killed, whose name our informant did not learn, and several passengers severely hurt, Nashuille Union and American. It is an error in regard to the bridge giving way, for tho car run oil the track some distance before reaching the bridge, and run several paces on the cross ties until it went. over. Nei ther did the engine run off. (July the box car, and tho front wheels of the tender. As to the bridge, it is most excellent, and we venture the asser tion that not one on the Nashville and Chattanooga Road surpasses it. As we have said in another place, a chunk of wood on the track threw the car off, the engine being behind.

A UK ANSAS ColTO.N I. ANUS L.AIKil'. Yiki.ii. We had the pleasure, yester day ol meeting with our esteemed friend, Col. Willoiighby Williams, of Nashville, on his return from his plan tation, on the Arkansas river, lie brings most cheering reports from the cotton crops in Arkansas. Col. W. has gathered on bis Richland plantation, twenty-five miles below Pino lilulf. eight hundred bales, the product of the labor of sixty-four bands. From another plantation, not far from Rieli lainl, where be employs forty hands, he has already gathered and shipped six liuuib ed bales. Fourteen bales to the hand, we should call a good crop, even for Arkansas. Col. Williams, who is a successful planter, as well as a lirst rate Democrat, says that there are many of his neighbors who have done quite as well as he, and that in his section the product will average three thousand pounds of seed cotton to the acre. This, we dare say, will look like a great many squirrels up a tree to our ( ieorgia and .South Caroli na friends, but it may be relied on as strictly true.

DEATH OK JOSEPH II. EATON. D.D. The virtues and superior intellect of this noble man are known to most of our readers. In the Telegraph, published at Mmfreesboro, we find the following reference to the lamen ted dend : . "It becomes our painful duty to re cord the death of the Rev. Dr. Joseph II. Eaton, President oftbe Union Uni versity, who departed this life, at his residence, in this city, on Wednesday, 12th inst. It would be vain for us to attempt to portray the many excellen cies of character which belonged to this truly good man. He had been at the beadfofthe Union University from the time that it was first established until his death, nnd that institution owes much of its present exalted char- acter to tho wisdom and prudence of his management. Being a profound scholar, and possessed of ft sound and discriminating judgment, together with great firmness of purpose, ho was well qualified for the arduous duties of a position which he filled for a pe riod of above twenty years, with great honor to himself and the universal sat islaction of the patrons and students of the University. He was univer sally beloved by the students, and we have heard it remarked that -nojic ev er expressed any displeasure with him. As a minister of the Missiona ry Rapt ist Church, he wielded a vast influence for good. He was not only beloved by the members of his own Church, but by ewiy body that knew him. He possessed eminent talents, which added to his great suavity of disposition, and unhlemished christian character enabled him to do much good for the world. He was indeed an "Israelite in whom them was no guile." President Eaton was also a zealous advocate, of the temperance cause, nml labored assiduously in it for many years .previous to his death, and through his instrumentality many were led to forsake the intoxicating beverage and lead a life of sobriety ami uselulness. Asa private citizen he could not be surpassed; possessing those eminent social qualities which rendered his company of the most pleasing character. 1 le faithfully dis charged all his duties as minister, teacher, husband, father and private citizen, and has now gone to reap his reward in heaven, lie lias left a wife and three children to mourn their sad bereavement. The loss which the Raplist Church, Union University, and the community in which he resided, sustain in his death, will be difficult to repair, but his memory will long live in tho hearts of the people. A New Pok'i'kss, The Lincoln Journal sends out a enunciate lor po etical fame, in the person of Mih .Iks sii: Fi;w;i:so.v, a very young lady who has never hail llie advantage of a single day at school but who is whol ly indebted to her excellent mother for the instruction she has received, coin- miuncateil during such moments as she could snatch from her household duties and the can s of a family. This is but one of ten thousand ar guments for female education. The child as naturally draws its stock of knowledge from its mother as it does sustenance from her breast. Educate the daughters and thus gt them for ed ucating their children in turn. We know a lillle girl in Winchester to day who has just .started to school, aged eight years, and yet she is far ther advanced than most girls of her age all because her mother was pre pared for teaching, ami did (each, her daughter at home. ALEXANDER HAMILTON. In his historical novel, entitled "The Rivals, a Tale of the Times of Aaron liurr and Alexander Hamilton" now being published in the lliinlsville In dependent Jere. Clemens gives the ..II I ' . (' . I . I . loiiowmg grannie picture oi uie cele brated Alexander Hamilton. This presentation o( Hamilton's character will no doubt cause a war of words in the circle of our small historians. The' author, after speaking of the slanders circulated, concerning liurr and Miss Adelaide Clillou, thus pic lures his secret enemy: "If he (Run) bad known who was his enemy who was the life and soul of the conspiracy, it might have been different, since it is certain that he could have no excuse for a contempt ouh disregard of assaults from such a quarter. The name of that enemy that rival lias become inseperably blended wilh the history ot a conti nent. A West Indian by birth a sol dier by na' lire possessing talents of I he highest order a commanding person, and a most agreeable address, there was no station to which be might not aspire, as there was unquestiona bly none to which his attainments were not equal.

Roasting of his chivalry, ho did not hesitate to pollute the marriage bed, and add to the crime of debauch rry the despicable infamy of betray ing the woman who had trusted him. Whatever might have been her guilt, 'Her (rearier? was truth lo him." And when he rewarded the erring affection by pointing her nut as a mark lor the public scorn, ho became him self nn object too low for scorn itself to reach. Jealous, vindictive, unscru pulous; ready to employ any means, however vile, or resort to any artifice, however disreputable, Alexander Hamilton was a man whose enmity it was dangerous to excite, and whose friend ship it was dangerous to trust." The happiest period of one's life is during courtship. The next happiest when married. OUR FORTUNE. We've had it told! Madam DeMark, who is now stopping "for a lew days only," in Winchester, has told us our fortune, and we, like all other editors, must say Rometbisg about it in our paper. Our fortune! We've a seri ous notion to tell everything she told us. It's mighty hard to keep from it. We'll, on Monday night we went down. The Madame conversed with us awhile about the different places to which she had been and to which we had been, and, marvellous as it may seem, we had both been to the same places, and both of us had seen the same curiosities. Rut our curiosity was to have our fortune told. Now, our visit, de facto, was to see her in regard to having an advertisement in the Journal and having some bills printed, the weather being too inclem ent for her to get out. After an hour's conversation she produced the pack of cards, and told us to cut three times. We did so. She then commenced ex amining the pack one card after an other. And must we tell? Shall wc tell? Well, here goes : We will tell the bent part first. She said we loved a girl of light complexion, with black hair and blue pyes. Then she said that there was a girl who loved us! (Here wo felt mighty good.) Then she said we would be married at 21. (This didn't suit us, for we had desired to wed long before then.) Then she told us "a heap of things" which we have not time now to relate, all of which, mado us feel "sorter curious." Rut before saying more, allow us to observe that wc have about as much faith in what she or any other fortune teller may predict as we have in hob gobblins and ghosts. Still, it interests us a little just Xu.lwar what they have to say. Madame DeMark says that wj are "going to Congress" that is, she means, we reckon, that we will go to Washington some day us a visi tor, to see Congress in session. She surely must have meant that, and that is one of the "leading events of life" which she proposes to have the power to fortell. Now, we don't intend to solicit any one's vote, for she has said we were going lo Congress and of course we are going. Already we hae begun to read the speeches of celebrated congressmen and meditate upon the best policy to pur.-ue in order to win the plaudit: "Well, done thou good and fail bful servant." And when we get there we shall vote for a pension for the Madame just because she has predicted so good for us. Now, Madame DeMark knows that there is a vast amount of foolishness and credulity in the world even yet, consequently she makes her knowl edge in this respect quite lucrative, for lots of people are foolish enough to go and pay her charges for telling tle-ir fortunes, and credulous enough to believe what she says. She is a "world-renowned, independent, clair voyant" in other words, a genuine humbug, who can, "by the aid of hea venly bodies, tell what diseases one is subject to." She ought, at her death, to be defied, like Janus of old, as one endowed with the double attri bute of a knowledge of the future as well as the past. Madame DeMark' "usual charge" for telling one's fortune is SI, but ow ing to the "hardness of the times" she has reduced the charge to 50 cents.- However, she did not charge tin, as the fortunes of editors are told gratis. Consequently wc give her a little "puff" gratis, and when wc get to Congress we'll do any other favor she may ask of us. Hurrah for Madame DeMark! hurrah for us! A Dutiful Son. When the fifteen prisoners broke out of jail, at Roches ter, N. Y.. on the night of the 12th ult., John McClean, charged with highway robbery, refused to depart, alleging that if he went it would leave his mother liable on an old bail for 8 1,700. Forgiveness. The brave only know how to forgive; it is tho most refined and generous pitch of virtue human nature can arrive at. Cowards have done good and kind actions cowards have fought, nay, sometimes conquer ed, but never forgive; it is not his na ture; the power of doing it flows only from a strength and greatness of soul conscious of its own force and securi ty, above tho little temptation of re senting every fruitless attempt to in terrupt its happiness. Origin ok Swearing. When old Sa tan told mother Eve to give tilt apple to her husband, she replied she w ould not give A dam for all the apples In the world. We understand, thnt at a Railroad meeting held in Vienna last week, about $30,000 of stock was subscribed to the Winchester and Alabama Rail road: And that at New Market on Saturday last, a very raw and inclem ent day, f 10,000 was subscribed. 1 he amount at the latter place will no doubt, be considerably increased, as another meeting will be held soon. W e hope so, and that enough stock will be raised to put tho road on a sure basis for active operations.- Hvntt ville Advocate. We are pleased to learn that there was no foundation for the report that Judge Marchbanks had departed this life. The McMinnville Era seems to think that the report was started by a young "limb of the law" whom the Judge had refused the privilege of ad dressing the court at Manchester, on account of having no license.
