The venerable J. S. Pettigru, one of South Carolina's noblest names, continues to bear witness to the Union against the traitors who surround him. He has no faith in the practicability of their measures, and is prepared for the worst results to the State and the country. Lately, while attending the church, where, by his presence, he for so many years showed that the character of the statesman was complete only when religion gave it grace and solidity — the services were purged (by nullification) of the usual prayer for the President of the United States--the stern-hearted old patriot rose from his seat and left the church, thus giving a silent but pointed, rebuke to treason, where last it should be found, but where now, in South Carolina, it is most rampant.--Washington Star, Dec. 28.
