SONETHING ABO!T OUR PAPER.
I- is perhaps unnecessary to apologize for giving
our maders'only a half-sheet this week. Every cone
will reemember that it is Christmas, and will consider
that printers and editors, as "hard up" as they are
all the rest of the year, must have a little leisure and
sport during these mdern Saturnlia, as well as nig
gere and the restit of mankind. We have all accord
ingly taken our ielare- and now return to another
round of lhard work, with a determmation to please
every body, if tltething be possible. Although, to say
the truth, we very much fear we shall have great dif
ficulty in doing so. For tirere's little Miss Watch
Wedding, who will pronounce our paper terribly dull
unless we have from two to a dozen narriage notices
a week. And there's Mrs. Doleful, who will he simi
larly disgusted unless the obituary department is regu
larly well filled. And there's Jack Wonder, whio
will say tle Advertiser is hot worth a straw, if detoiel
Of," Great Inventions," "3Ivsterions affiyirs," and
all that sort of thing. There also is Timothy Critic,
who will find one' article too stif and elaborate, an.
other too loosely worded and langish, a third out of
uste, and a fourth altogether a ftilure. And there's
old Squire Mlean-'leart, whose unnatural craving to
gloat over the misfortunes and imprudences of others
is tever .satisfied with any thing short of a half
coltimn of. Sherifr-s Sales, or an Assignment or two
for the benefit of creditors, or some other such indica'
tion of-human-distress. And there too is thee senti
inental.Miss Heigh-Ho, who can make no .ullowatnce
for the occasional absence of a loVe-adventure. And
there's Farmer Gruff, who wishes, with an oath, that
we would leave gut all such stufy 'And there's old
Mrs. Carefid who is conetiderably put out and doubts
whether she is getting value received for her two
dollar bill, if she fails to find every week one or more
valuable recipes.-But we have pursued the subject
far enough. We repe't that we intend, leencefor
ward, to please everybody, or. to be feund trying our
at it. And so, all hands to work! to work!

CHRISTMAS IS COME---AND GONE.
IT came, in cloudy mood, with gloomy brow ant
dripping robes, and Po it went. It came, sultry am
stupid, and left in the same condition. Upon the
whole, it has proved to be with us about as dull ar
oeasion of the kind as we have ever known. Oui
streets and roads have been the exact antipodes o
.eAdamii's most perfect conceptions-muddy, slip
pery, sloshy and boggy. We scarcely had a single
gleam of sunshine, either on the day before Christmas
or on Christmas day, or on the day after. We heari
of but a single egg-nogg during all that time; and, a
for social gatherings, there possibly may hgve heer
some such-but we doubt it exceedingly. Thc
weather was so forbidingly damp that no lad)
" dared stir abroad," and scarcely a dozen genti
were to be found buoyant enough to rise above it
depressing influences. Even the darkies, of whon
there were throngs consteantly passing and repassing
lad less of genial warmth in their holiday greetingi
than we lave ever before observed. How could il
be otherwise, when the atmosphere was worse that
what we read of London fogs, while Fahrenheict.'
thermometer sit.K1 at 72!-We once heard a lad re
mark that he thought Clritmas could not come at all
unless with a snow or sleet accompaniment. And
simple as was the conclusi-n, there was formerl)
some shadow of reason to excuse.the childite) ratio
eination. For surely, utless our memory is ver)
imperfect, the winter months (and especially De
cember) were colder twenty years ago and mon
regularly so, than now. At - any rate we cannot re
call, -in our whole experience, a Christmas like tht
one just passed. It almost amounts toa plenomenon
To account for it we are at a loss, and leave the

DEATH OF BON. B. 0. ALLSTON.
Tut Charleston Mercury, of the 23rd ist., an
nounces the demise of this high-toned Carolinian ant
faithful public servant in the following terms:
"I 'is with much regret'we announce the death o
the Hon. B. G. Allston, who died in- tli' city or
Tuesday, the 21st. Col. Allston .has occupied fo
many years'a distinguished position a. the Beiufor
District Bar. He was first elected from $t. Luke'
Parish toe tle House or Representatives in the -Stati
Legislature in 1824, and after many years of retire

Parish, and continued to represent his- fellow.itizen

FRUIT HILL, Edgelield .eistriet, S. C.
Fr.L.OW CITZENs: I find myself a Can'lidate
before you for re-election: and it is proper that I
should State the circunistances. 1
For nany years I hal been Post Master at Fruit
.ill, and was Post Master at the tinte of my eh-e
tion. Shortly after the election, and before I took
my seat as a member of the'louse, I forward.d my
resignation to the Department at Washingtim, and
withdrew from all conneetion with the Offiee, not
doubting that hy resingn:nlg before I took my seat
I had complie...with all the Constitutional require
ments. Nor did I hear any thi:ng to the contrary
until at the regular Session of the Legislature, I I
learned that the opinion was elitertained by sone
that the resignation should have taken place before
th-: ei-etion ; while other thoult it was suiflii. nt
to resign before being sworn as a inoinber.

appeared in the ]Dlgeield Adeertiser of Fh De

Privileges and Eleetions, who r..ported that in their
opinion, such res*-nation must take place before the I

office might be.

VALUABLE LAND AMD NEGROES
BEING about to remove from this part of the
country, the Subscriber offers for sale his
Plaiftation n the Savannah River, in EdgeficId '
District. It is situated about eight or ten miles
above A ugusta, and lies in the foi-k of Savannah
River and Big Stevens' Creek, measuring about
three miles on each, and contains
Three Thousand Five Hundred Acres.
On the premises are two Settlements or Quarters,
Two Gin I louses, Cotton Screws,J3lacksmith Shop,
anl a Grist 11ill. About one half is in cultivation,
and most of the balance is in native forest. and well
timbered. The timber in the low grounds, and the
wohol on the upland, at the rates in the Augusta
Market, would more than pay the price of the whole
premises. The mouth of Stevens' Creek is about
two miles above the upper end of the Augusta
Canal with a good boating River between.
To an approved put-chaser the Subscriber would
also sell from
One to two Hundr'ed Negroes,
mostly in families.
Terms will be made easy, and long credit given.
