Henry Mclver, Chief Jus tice of Booth Carolina, died at hit home in Cheraw, ou the 18th instant. For some time be has liven a anUarar from concur of itie | trngue, and spent quit* a while in Sarsnuah, Oa. under treat ment. Judgn Mclver hue l orn a model man from early manhood. As a yon ng attorney, he waa one 'll the first in the State, of hia tigo and experience. When he bud been in practice but a few year*, he eras elected eolicitor of hi* dis trict, and it goes without saying, that he niadu an able and faithful solicitor. In Jauuary, 1662, be entered the army a* 2nd lieuten ant in the Chesterfield bight Dra goon*, which becarnt Company A, in Col. Rutledge’s 4th S. C. caval ry. (this editor wa* a private in aome oompany.) Later ha be came the oiptaiif of hia company, and never waa an officer more de voted to his men, and uovor were men truer to their commander. Nothing could induce Captain Molvcr to accept promotion, be *« wunm mm iron hi* men, who wer* hi* home peo ple. He »i» a greet (tickler for candor, truth and right, and never deceived or disap|>ointed hia men. Am a soldier, he waa calm, quiet and always oool, but aa brave as a lion, and un many occasions, he and hia gallant boys woufor thom aalvea distinguished renown, for their gallantry on the field of bat tle, aud in raiding expeditions. Aftaa the war, Capt. Mclver re turned to hia home and opened hia law office, and from that time, to his elevation to the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, he novur laokud for cliouts. Many an old soldier of his com mand. found him a friend indeed, when hia friendship was uoeded. Aa Chief Justice nj predecessor eclipsed him in the essential qual ifications for this high office, and U li worthy of note, that he was the only eitisen of South Car olina, who held hi* position and 'influence, amid the din ol politi cal strife. A groat man has fall en—Chief Justice Mclver, the “noblostof all the Homans;'1 the boat of citiseos; the bravest of soldiers; the ablest of juriota is dead. All the people of the Slate rng.iriii«>(4 of party aud race, are reads to exclaim, oh, that he oonld have lived forever! But while ha was grant in tlie avwa of the world, in bis inter c-iurse with hia fellow-man. be waa greatest in the horns oirols. Aa a husband he was devoted to hia wife; as a father ho woe truly affectionate to his children, and with a firm, bnt loving hand, be raled hia boms wall. We hope to read a tribute to liia memory from a mots compe tent scribe, and nu doubt will en joy this molauchcdy pleasure, bat urn on* who knew him well, and honors bis memory, we offer tide w'osk tribute.
