Gossip WITH OUR FRIENDS.—Eighty-nine
years ago there_ was grave trouble among the
UtirrEo Cot.ome,s of North America. On the
7th of June, 1776, Richard Henry Lee, of Vir
ginb, mo_l_red that " these UNITED CoLoNtEs are
and of right ought to be free and independent
States." Thos. .Jefferson, of Vs.; John Adams, of
Mass.; Benj. Franklin, of Anna.: Rodger Sher
man, of Conn., and Robert R Livingston, of New
York, Wei" appointed a committee to draft a
• Declaration of Independence. Jefferson,as chair
- loan, prepared the document. This Declaration,
after being discussed sev oral days and slightly
amended was adopted at 2 o'clock on the 4TH OF
JULY, 177_6. The aforesaid' dimunent contained
the following: " We hold these truths to be self
" evident, that all men are created equal; that
" they are • by their Creator with -cer
tain inalienable rights ; that among these, are
"life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."—
flow the - Confederined States, having become 'a
government under the title of UNITED STATES,
lived up to these bold words, let history shew.
If Mr. Jefferson's writings do not exhibit that he,
at least, thought_slavery an evil, to be gotten rid
of as soon as possible, depending upon the very
spirit that actuated the " Declaration," and upon
the abhorrence that the signers of the same had
for injustice—if such was not the ease, then there
is no use in writing one's thoughts at all. This
same Mr. Jefferson, the great exponent of lko
ocracy, " trembled when he reflected that
was just," and well might he tremble. But thank
God, the day for trembling has-pried by. 'We
harti received our punishment. The whole coun

David, the - choioe of war, famine or pestilence;

Alas, your Gossip has been led outside of his
track, and now returns with due humility to that
with which he is familiar. The war has lasted
ti ur years. How Well do we all remember the
celebrated Patterson campaign of '6l, when the
'three-mouths' men rendered our town so gay,
when we used to have parades in' the Diamond,
when iNe looked with awe upon a Colonel, and
when we wilted at the sight of the first Briga
dierovhen we looked confidently fir the early
destruction of Stonewall Jackson and his men.
These were the primitive days of innocence, and
then followed '62,. when McClellan was "our
young Napoleon," when the nine-mouths' men

'in the night, setting fire to the Railroad buildings,
and frighteuiug us out of our wits. After that.
in due ehronological 'order came 'CM, with Lie . s

there, 1113 countrymen! What a carry hig busi
vess the Cumber land Valley Railroad did what
a scarcity tnere was of colored population and
horses, and haw, ou the instant, eviry retail

watched the long line Of the invading army march
through our streets and past our doors, for eight
long weary- day s. Three mortal weeks were we
then in the enemy's lines, (and they were not
pleasnut places either,) during which time our

NEW ENGLAND GOLDEN WEDDING
We copy from the Hartford (Conn.) Christian

On Tuesday, the 13th of dune, Dea. William
A. Sumner, of the Baptist church in Tolland, and
his wile, Mrs. Anna Washburn Sumner, celebra
ted their "Golden Wedding." They were sur
rounded on the occasion by their eight children,
all they, have ever had, except one daughter who
died many years ago. Of their surviving eight,
tau are sons, and four are daughters—all are
married, and their companions were also 'pres
ent, except the -wife of their youngest son, who
was detained by illness. Of their ten grand-chil
dren. nine were present, the tenth being the in
thitt child of-the wife of their youngest son, above
mentioned. - Their eldest grand-child is married,
and her linsblind was also present on this occa
sion. •So, of their family stock, there were pres
ent the goodly number of twenty-seven persons,
iz. Dea. S. and wife, 2—children, tz—miirried
companions of the same, 7—grand-children, 9
husband of one grand-child, I—total 27: Several
of the children reside in remote arts; one son
in St. Louis, Mo.. two eons in the State of Ohio,
and one daughter in southern Pennsylvania.—
Still, in the good Providence of God, all the family
were perinittf , „d to be gathered in the dear pater
nal domain on this occasion, with the single ex
ceptions of one daughtermi-law and her child
above-mentioned. One of the sous made a cal
culation, that the travel of all the individuals in
coining to the place of meeting and returning,
o ould be homething more than 20,000 miles !
Besides these, other family relatives, also friends,
were present' , making a company of nearly fifty
persons. The compantwere bounteously fed from
the full stores of our - venerable friends, and the
whole occasion was one of much, very much, en
joyment. Remarks we made on the occasion by
Dea. Geo. 0. Sumner, M. D., of New Haven,
brother to Den. W. A. S.,
by Rev. E. Palmer, a
brother-in-law, and by Rev. Messrs. Gale and
Marsh, Baptist and Congregational pastors at
Tolland. Dr. Sumner was the only person pre
•-ent, except the married parties, who was also
present at the or iginal sledding, and gave some
interesting and pleasant reminiscences of that oc
casion of the 13th of June. 1815.- Melodeon and
,4vce,t vocal mimic were had on theoceasion, and
the joyous and pleasant scenes closed by solemn
pr ,yer and thanksgiving to God, by the Rev. Mr.
In conclusion, it may be remarked Oita very
few parents base more occasion to be felicitated
upon their children than these our friends.—
Their children have all dune remarkably well,
mid are both a comfort and a credit to their pa
rests: and most or all of them, it is believed, in
addition to worldly prosperity, have chosen the
'•good part which shall not be taken from them."
Then as to the '•little people," the grand-children,
a more pleasant mid promising group, it is belie
ved, are very seldom brought-together.
WHAT THE WAR HAS COST THE SOL7TII.
The New York Times figures up the pecuniary
loss of the South in good money as follows:

Of the subject ginerally it i; said, the South of
INiO had about one-third of the property in the
Union, and had the South the same proportion
now, their contribution to meet the national debt
would be one thousand millions of dollars. We
"At the present time they have not one-sixth;
probably not oipeighth, so much property as the
North ; and thelaxation upon them, if levied now,
to pay the debt, would be correspondingly limi
ted. But not fur manyyears to come will this
debt be paid. The taxes levied upon the South
to meet its proportion of the current interest of
the debt will, in the aggregate, sun may safely as
sume, make up the difference: so that inthe
run the debt Will cost the Sbuth one thousand
millions at least, little or no part of which will go
to its own people.
" We have enumerated Southern losses, in con
sequence of the war, to the amount of five thous
and eight hundred millions of dollars, namely:
twenty-five hundred millions by loss of what was
called slave property, nine hundred millions by
ravages of war, nine hundred millions by loss of
staple crops, five hundred millions of property
sunk in Coniederate debt, and ono thousand mil
lions by what must hereafter be paid by the South
to liqindate principal and interest of the national
debt. This, of course, is a very rough estimate.
We might have included- many other items, in
volving indirect, though not less certain, losses.

for fully and wickedness. It ought to be enough
to propitiate the worst enmity. Though perhaps
certain of the authors of all this calamity have
not yet suffered to the extent of their deserts, this

Southern people—especially when regard is had
to their sacrifice not only of property, but of life.
So far as they are concerned, none but hearts cal

STARVATION AT THE SOUT 11—SHOCKING
SCESE,.—The Augusta (Ga.,) Transcript thus
describes a scene which recently took place at
Columbia, the capital of South Carolina:—
We recently mentioned the sad condition of
the people of Camden, whose houses were sub
ject to isitation by an armed mob, and who
u. ere aliowed to have nothing saved by the suf
ferance of abandoned and lass less men. Now Ise
learn that the . people ut Columbia have been sub
jected to the like terrible visitation. It appears
that the mob began With attacks upon the public
stores ; then private stables were sacked; then
the supplies gathered at the depots for the suffer
ing and starting poor of that city, were carried
oil; then the wagons which conveyed there, the
charities of other cities, were emptied. Two the
mules attached to those wagons, and the cows
1111011 which poor widows and orphans depended
for their support, were not spared. The Phre
nix declares that there is no other prospect be
fore the people bat absolute famine and starva
tion It says: There are no less than 10,000
people here daily receiving rations, who have no
other ilff:ans of getting bread for themselves and
children. See these unleippy destitutes at the

that daily bread for which they are authorized
and required to pay. The Executive Commit

have put in Milli, in the office of the Auditor

HOME Asp FAMILY OF HENRY CLAY.—A
correspondent, of the Cincinnati 'Commercial tells
a melancholy storyof Ashland, the late homeitend
of Henry Clay, and gives the history of bis de
.kcendants The oldhomestead of Henry Clay,
it seems, is now ocentied by the family of Hon.
Thomas Clay, one of his sons, and present Min
ister to one of the South. American governments.
It is owned by the heirs of James B Clay, who,
it will be remembered, died in Canada about a
year ago. The house in which Mr. Clay lived
when at home, was torn down some sears since
byPJames, and a magnificent structure erected
on its site, and ,there is nothing now about the
place to remind one of him who once on ned and
honored it, except the family buggy in,Which the
old man and his wife used to drive about, and the
oak trees in front of the house,beneatli which he
used to sit and talk with his family and friends.
Mr. Ctay had five sons. Four of them survived
him. One, who bore his father's name, was kil
led in the Mexican war. Thomas, as I have said,
is now a g vernment minister: .John is living on
one-half o °lola homestead, now divided into
two farms. es died a fugitive in a foreign
land, and The ore (the oldest of the family) is,
and has been, for twenty-five sears, an inmate of
an iniane asylum, still avowing to every one with
whom he converses that he is the origigal George
Washington. and refusing to respond to call by
any other name. Mr. Clay-had no possessions of
any kind at the time of his death, with the excep
tion of Ashland, which was,
of course, worth a
considerable sum; but wen that was heavily mort
gaged, and he thought at one time 'he would be
compelled to abandon it to his creditors, until,
one ddy, when he entered the bank to pay one of
his notes, he was told that he did not owe a cent.
Kind and generics friends had taken his case in
hand, and lifted-the pecuniary burden from his
GEN. GRANT IN CIIIIRCII.—Among the inter.
esting ineidents . of the dedication of Spring Gar
den Street M. E. Church, on Sunday week, was
the visit sf the Lieutenant-General. Very unex
pectedly to the congregation, at about the hour
of service commencing. Gen: Grant, with two of
his children, accompanied by two of his Staff
and George H Stuart, esuisentered - the church,
which was densely crowdtV.‘ The Rev. James
Neill took the party in charge, and furnished them
with seats within the altar. The Generahap
pe fired much impressed with the eloquence of
Bishop Simpson, and when, after the sermon,
the subscriptions were being made, he beckoned
to one of the officers, who, after conferring with
him, announced that Gen. Grant desired to con
tribute $5OO for himself and $lOO for Mrs. Grant,
toward the erection of the church. At the close
of the services he was formally introduced by the
Rev. Mr. Cookman, the pastor, to the audience
who all arose to their feet as the General stood
before them. Very soon he was completely sur
rounded by those who were anxious to grasp his
hand, and finally made his exit at the rear of the
church. In the evening, in order to show their
appreciation of the General's liberality, a propo
sition was made to contribute $l,OOO fer a pew
for himself and family. In a very few minutes
the sum was raised, and the pew was set apart
on Wednesday evening.
A SHORT time since an exchange paper in the
interior of the State published a communication
presenting the name of General W. W. Irwin as
a candidate for the office of Auditor General, and
urging his nomination. It will be seen 'by the

SLAVERY.—The ouly States of the Union in
which starcit now has an existence are Kentucky
and Delaware, and the institution is in a fright
fully moribund condition in each of them. In
Delaware it is an absurdity, in its character as
well as in its magnitude, and the people ought to
nboliih what there is of it, if only for the name
of the .thing. In Kentucky nearly all the able
bodied blacks have done service in our army, and
are therefore free; and the fact that these -men
have done military service makes all their wives
and childretf - free. So that what remains of ne
'gro slavery in Old Kentucky is the merest skele
ton. Disjointed, lifeless, hopeless, with no pres
ent value and no prospect in the future. The ac
tion of the States on the Constitutional Amend
ment will wipe out the institution clean ; and in
favor of this amendment we expect that both
Kentucky and Delaware will vote, tholigh both of
them have once rejected it.
A CORRESPONDENT has recently made a trip
across South Carolina in the track of Sherman
march, and describes the havoc and desolation as
most complete. The route of the avenging army
is marked by burned chimneys, obliterated rail
roads and a country pretty well cleaned of ani
mals, forage and surplus provisions. The white
people in the interior, while admitting that they
are conquered for the present, still maintain and
give expression to their Secession hi-resies, and
entertain an intense hatred for the Yankees and
the negroes. Notwithebindin, this, the planters
say that they will be better off without Slavery.
There is considerable cotton still scattered through
out the State ; but the greater part of the crop
has been destroyed. The colored people of Col
umbia have held meetings and raised money for
the purpose of celebrating the Fourth of July by
giving a dinner to the National soldiers stationer)

(Ga) Tdcgraph says Howell Cobb was in Ma

he believes that a blight future is alasrd, and
thinks it only remains tar the people to put forth

he replied that he thought it would he the same

is rapidly appointing civil officers fur all the coun
ties, cities nail towns, selecting only men known
fir their adherence to the Union. Enrolling
Boards are to be appointed in the various MUD
ties, whose duty it will be to administer the Am
nesty oath to such as-may be entitled to tak• it,
excluding the disloyal and those mentioned in the
fourteen classes of 111.-President's Amnesty Pro
clamation, unless special pardthis shall be exhib

the Raleigh Standard, will silt the chaff from the

alone to 'reconstruct' the Government. Only

A CORRESPOICI of the Milwaukee Wis
consin recently visited the rebel Gen. Pillow, at
his residence hear Columbia, Tenn. The large
Mate is leased out by the Government, but the
General is permitted to use the house and ad
joining grounds. The General professes to be
thoroughly subjugated, but not profoundly repen
tant. He talks in substance, if not in exact
words, like this: "We are conquered; you Yan
kees are our masters; we give it up; we are at
your mercy: we only ask a chance now to get a
living for our families, and we ask it as a favor t
we have got through with the fight, and though
the South didn't make is good a fight as she could
have done, still it is over now, and we want peace."
The General says he isn't guilty of treason. He
is willing to be tried by a jury of our Generals,
except that General Curtis must not be on it.
He couldn't trust him.
ALBERT PIKE. the Arkansas poet, painter and
ex-rebel General has gone to Washington to settle
up his Indian affairs. He says he went into the
war reluctantly, having no doubt of the ultimate
defeat of the rebels, and is only surprised that the
catastrophe was deferredso long. Being a South
ern man, he could not avoid being dram into it.
Mr. Pike indignantly denies having countenanced
the atrocities with which he is charged at Pea
Ridge. and is confident of his ability to exculpate
himself. He has lost nothing of flesh or hair since
the rebellion, and has evidently managed to se
cure his regular rations, both solid and fluid, even
in times of the greatest scarcity.
THE rebel General Ewell, in a letter written
from Fort Wairen, his present abiding place, to
a friend, furnishes his statement of how he be ,
came engulfed in the miielstrom of the rebellion.
The reasons are somewhat similar to those given
by Alexandria 11. Stephens for the same misfor
tune. Ewell said he saw prominent Northern
men in and out of Congress advocating secession
and declaring that the rebels were right, and he
was thus led to believe 'that a dissolution of the
I7iiion was inevitable, and therefore, though very
reluctantly, resigned his commission •in the na
tional army and entered thatafJeff.Davis.
FLATAiYCE AND TRADE.
The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has deliv
ered an opinion which is of much importance to
the holders of loans and bonds issued by various
cities, boroughs, toivns and counties in the State,
and which settles beyond cavil the halite of such
classes of creditors. The Legislature, by act of
April 25, 1564, authorized such communities to
issue bonds and negotiate loans for the purpose
of paying bounties to encourage volunteering,
and to relieve their citizens from the burdens of
the draft, giving power also to levy taxes to pay
the principal and interest of such loans. he
borough of Blairsville having proposed to borrow
$5OOO for such a purpose, some citizens of that
place made application to the Common - Pleas of
Indiana county to restrain the borough from pro
ceeding in that negotiation. The ground taken
oppoiltion was, that the act was unconstitu
tional, and that the Legislature had no power to
pass it. The Court of Indiana county did not
accept this view, and the injunction was refused.
The case was then taken to the Supreme Court,
where it was twice argied—once in Pittsburg and
once at Harrisburg.
The, question seems to have been carefully con
sidered by the fire judges, and at length we have
their decision: The Court, by Justice Agnew
(Justice Read mid Strong concurring,) decide
that the act was constitutional, and that all loans
negotiated by virtue of its•provihions are
Chief Justice Woodward and Justice Thompson

appearance, such as ulcerated sure thrum, diseased nose,
nocturnal pains in the head, and limbs, dimness of sight,
deafness, nobs on the chin, bones and arms, blotches on the
head, face and extremities, progre,ing with frightful us
pidity, till at last the palate of the mouth or the bones of
the nose fall in and the victim of this awful disease be
comes a horrid object of cummisseratiun, till death puts a

inviolable secrecy; and from his extensive practice in the
first Hospitals of Europe and America, be can confidently
recommend a sofa - and speedy cure to the unfortunate vic

an untimely grave, or make the residue of life miserable.
