A?.ft*w ft; \ m m M SATURDAY EVENING, SEPTEM BEE 10. ABOUT a hundred million dollars are now paid annually by the government to its pen? sioner?. Of this amount, though the South pays a large part?her full share, according to her population, but very little comes back to her. as all the pensioners, except a few who fouzbt in the Mexican war, live in the North. It is estimated that the protec? tive tariff puts about Gve timca as much money in the pockets of the protected manufacturers as it does into the Treasury. As the South has to pay her full share of thi immense sum also, and as most of the manu facturers live in the North, but little of it ever find* its way back to her. And yet Northern people, traveling in the South, ex? press surprise at the bad road-", bad fences, and uncultivated Gelds of a country that was bo recently devastated by a desolating war. The civil service rules?not the law, provide thit no man over thirty five jears of age shall apply for a position in tbe pos...

All know that Bourbons never forget anything. The General's forte, as proved by the paper ie ferred to, and the preceding one, ia not written words. He denounces Mr. Barbcur for vaiious sorts of delinquencies, and ful? some political crimes, and says that gentle? man's sole object now is to Eein a seat in the U. S. Sonate. There is not a man of the requisite aga in Virginia, "Bjurbon" or otherwise, who doesn't know that save only and except for the fact that tho democrats wou'd not have Gen.
