MR. KEESE COLLECTING.
A member of our Firm is at this time out collecting
the dues of the Adertiser Office. No one, we feel
assured, will turn from him without a prompt res.
ponse to his call for funds. Our claims are many, and
singly very small; but, all together, they will make
up a pretty sum,-a sum that will enable us iot only
to pay our debts, but to place our paper upon a higher
ground of progress than we have yet ventured to
assume. While our many friends throughout the
District aro receiving the rich reward of their fine
crops, they will surely remember the printer's due,
and act accordingly upon seeing our friend and asso
ciate, Mr. E. Klersr.
The Adrertiser, we thankfully say, is climbing,
'climbing, climbing, steadily and surely. One kind
and generous lift on the part of our present patrons
would take us aloft to the pinnacle of certain pros

A WORD TO THE LITTLE FOLK.
SASTA CLAra is already come to town, and has
made Mr. G. L. PENx's store the Depository of vari
ous articles in the way of fruits and fireworks, can.
dies and crackers. But from a private interview
with the old traveller, leld by moonlight yesterday
-ovening, we derive the information that lie cannot
r and will not indulge the little people, this Christuass,
as he usually does. ie has not suspended by any
means. His ware-rooms are yet full of all the prt.
ties and sweet things he usually keeps on hand. But
he says, " children, like older peopale, must occasion
ally learn whtat it is to be debarred their usual ifidul
gences; what it is to m~iss their expected gratifica
tions ; what it is in short to be diurppoinalc." We
told higgelgho uught to be the best judge
o f these mattel-s-he was old and experienced in the
- rays of the sall fry, and we wouald say nothinag
against hais suggestiun,--that we thtought, in pocint of
fact. it was agood one." Yet, with all this unwonated
parsimonay, it was easy to see by the twinkle of his
eye thtat there was funx emnugh in haima to mtake up fur
any lack of gouod things. And althocugh the stuck
tugs mnay nor he as full as thtey somectimnes are, we
know he will see to it thtat thte young hearts of his
dear pets sha'l be as overflowinag with joy and glad
ness as ever.

synopis of the proceedings of our Legislature at its
present session. As but little has been accomplished,
we shall give no moure unnecessary detlils.
On Saturday, the 'twelftha, nothing cotieusive ap
pears to have been done in the Senate. Mr. McCaw
offered resoluttions comtplimientary to Mtaj. D. H. Hill,
late of the United States Arnmy, and providing that
the Governor be requested to procure a suitable sword
to be presented to haim on bechalf of this State. Mr.
Moses ollfered like resolutions in respect to Capt. Rich.
ard H. Anderson of the U. S. Armny. Agreed to.
In then house, on the same day, a discussiona upon
the Banks occupied the greater portion of thes tirae,
whicha resulted in senadinag a Bill to thte Senate, whlich
bud hben concocted in cotmmittee of the whole.
Otn Monday, the fourteenath, nothing of general imn
ptortance was conastutmated int the Senate. In the
Hose thec resolutionts of thte Senate, cotmplitmentary
to, Maj. Hill and Caapt. Anderson, were agreed to. A
Bill :,ranting aid to Rail-Roads, and fixing the
amonat uf aid to the Spartanahurg and Union Rail
IR ad at $35i0,000, passed its seconad reading, anad was
ordered tao the Senate. So likewise was a Bill in re
gard to professional gamtblers; adding whipping to
the peaadties now imposed by law.
On Tuesday, the fifteenth, a President and Dire
tors of the Bank of thae State were elected, and Ge:.
James Jones was re-electedl Commissioner of the new
s~tate House. In the Senate, Mr. Townsend offered a
resolution, which was agreed to, directing the said
Comaissioner to report specifically upon severail
points, to conclude his said report with an estimate of
the etntire cost of thte whole building when cotapleted,
and an opinion as to how many years from this date
it will requtire to effect this completion with an annu
al appropriation of $300,000. In thae House, the Col
lege question was takgn up and Maj. Perry's Bill was
disagreed to ; so there will be no action on the subject.
On W ednesday,- the sixteenth, nothing of interest
transpired in either brancha, unless it be Itat progress
was made with the tax-bill.
On Thursday, the eighteenth, quite a number of
members asked leave of absence.
On Friday, the nineteenth, nineteen Trustees of 'the
South Carolinta College were electead. They are as

In the year 1652, the Parliament of England, fo:
divers causes moving them thereto, actually abolishei
the pleasant old season of Christmas, and determine
that it should no longer be observed as a Feast Daj
or otherwise. But this act was not long after repeal
ed by honest Jonx BuLL, who could no more remai
forgetful of the dear traditional customs of his fathert
than he could deaden his appetite to the teuiptatioi
of huge sirloins, rich mince-pies, and hot plum-pud
dings. So Father Christmas was "triumphantly in
stalledagainatthe incoming of the merry court of Eix
CHARLEs," and, from that day to this, has lent h
accustomed returnsof mirth, and glee, and beneficene
and mischief, as well to the " cottage small" as to th
"Squire's wide ball."
WASHI1OTON InvisU gives some delightful sketehi
of an English Christmas in the country, which ot
readers would do well to re-peruse on Christmas oi
(to-morrow) night, to prepare them for the social an
hospitable duties of the season. They will scar4
put down the book without an honest and heartfe
agreement with the sentiments of the good old Squi
of Bracebridge Hall: "I love," said he, " to see th
day well kept by rich and poor; It is a gret thing
have one day In the year, at least, when you are at
of being welcome wherever you go, and of havia
as It were, the world all thrown open to you; And
am almost disposed to join with poor Robin in I
malediction on every churlish enemy to this wholeso
He who at Christmas doth repine,
And would fain hence despatch him,
May he with old Duke Humphrey dine,
Or else may Old Ketch catch him."
We speak of England. And whatare we but En
lish ?-English in our laws, in our literature, in o
customs, in our tastes ? Let us then, as deseendan
of a " merrie mother," revert to the
" Good old times
When the Christmas chimes
Were a joyous sound to hear."
Let us call back into our bosoms some of the a
elent hospitality of a better day. Let us praise 0
and love our neighbors. Lot us be mirthful in Inn
oent measure. Let the old people relax the ~lg
museles of age, and smile like unexpected sunshii
on the young. (How precious are those smiles
Let the young bow in reverence at the feet of f
aged, and cheer them with the beaming radiance
affectionate duty. Let good-humor, and forgivenic
of trespasses, and charity prevail. In the langue
of an ancient bard of Albion,
"Lo ! now is coic our joyfull'st feast!
Let every man be jolly;
Each roome with yvie leaves be drest,
And every post with holly.
Now all our neighbors' chimneys smoke,
And Christmas blocks arc burning;
Their ovens they with bak't meats choke,
And all their spits are turning.
Without the door let sorrow lie,
And if, for cold, it hap to die,
Wee'l bury it in a Christias pye,
And evermore be merry."
What a pity it is, that we Protestants turn a
backs upon those beautiful and impressive religio
services, connected with Christmas, which the Romi
Catholics observe with such deep devotion ! T
iass at midight, ushering in the day upon whieb
Prince and Saviour was born to us! The anthems
praise, welcoming the first early dawn of that ador
ble anniversary! The beautiful ofjieeint Imstormis,
which choruses of children are trained to respond
the Priest in simple harmony! How well calculat
are all these things to impress one with a right sen
of the mighty event they are designed to honor al
celebrate! with a more vivid realization of the prc
eut and ever-abiding duty to thank our God, -w!
" sent his only begotten Son into the world that 1
through him should not perish but have overlastii
life!" We confess to a love for all those ceremni
aind observances, the olject of which is to keep I
fore the nindu's of men at all times a proper remei
branuce of Christ, whether in his birth, his life, I
death, his resurrection, or his high mediation att

"CLAY, CALHOUN, AND WEBSTER."
General W. T. HIsm., the Tennessee lectur
institutes tweiity different, colors of comparison 1
twoen the "mighty dead" whose names are giv
above. Some of these are good, as witness the t

elevated on the broadest principles of Diemocra
suffrage: ;ad Webster would have liked a limited
Others of these contrasts are only so-so,-take t1
"In habits, Clay was dictatoirial, magisterial al
genial; Calhoun, wary, diplomatie and exc'lusim
andl, Webster, gentle, self-i.oised and dignified."
The lecturer knew Mr. Car.uotrs very in-sulicier
ly, we think, to have given his habits this rather har
coloring. Ho had two of the attributes allotted
W.s-r.m, and one of those allotted to Claiy ala",
an eminent degree. Ho was "sulf-poisedl and digt
fed ;" he was likewise " genial." But of' thme wiarinc
and exclusiveness of his habits we have now heal
for the first time.
*Another of these contrasts is so far wrong as to
really amusing :
" In music, Clamy would have loved to listen to t1
ringing tones of the war-bugles' sounding note ; Ci
ion, the multifarious discord that makes an operat
harmony ; and Webster, the still, deep-rolling solein
Now, we do not know that we exactly conmpreher
what is meant by "the multifarious discord th
makes an operatic harmony ;" bet, to guess at tl
signiention from the style of the expression, m
should say that, of all thinigs, it would have con
nearest to running Mr. CALIuOUs stark mand. To
man who preferred in music such simple old sonigs
"Lord Locuisvin," and "It was Dunois the youi
and brave," an " operatic harmony" would scarcel
have been pleasing when conducted in the best sty
of the "era divina." But rendered with "umultifa
rious discord," we can readily picture the statesmi
of Fort Hill stopping his ears with both hands an
precipitately rushing out into thme open air.
We give on,o more specimen of Gen. HasArKLL
comparisons as a relief to the last:
"In art and architecture, Clay would have fancia
painting and sculpture ; Calhiouni would have mathe
muatically taxed his brain, in labyrinthine structure
such as Ulysses threaded in the rpek-girt isle of Cret
where the Fates held the light, and the distaff, an
the wheel, when Atropus clipped the strinag of fate
and Webster would have builded monuments an
p myramis." --

SENATOR DOUGLAS AND KANSAS.
The conclusion seems to be, that three propositions
I will come before Congress in reference to Kansas.
I One will be, to admit her under the Topeka Consti
tution,-which will' of course be thrown overboard.
- Another will be the new scheme of Senator DOUGLAS,
which, through an "enabling act" of Congress, pro
poses to throw the whole matter buck before the pen
I pie of the Territory. The third will be, the admis-I
- sion of Kansas as:an-equal member of the Confedera
- cy under the Constitution formed by her late Conven
D tion. And this lastis the measure of the Adminis
, Senator DOUOLAs5bas made a epeech in favor of his
e proposition, which has excited many fears lest the set
tement of this territorial embroilment be again de
s feated, or at least postponed. If we may rely upon
r Washington letter-writers however, these apprehen
' sions are likely to prove groundless. One of them
d says: " The Senator has failed to impress his views of
* the Kansas question where he has sought most anx
It lously to do so,"-." he has not made a single con
'e vert In the Senate,"-and "as a Democratic leader he
is no longer exists." . So talks the correspondent of the
to Richmond Sauth. "AsuZrr," of the Charleston
re Mercury, goes further and says that "it is a verified
go truth, and none can deny it," that "Senator Dou
I LAS Is In with the Northern party,"-meaning the Re
is publicans. Other uewsmongers write in the same vein
19 of our "little giant" of the North West and the in
fluence of his present course. But we fnd going the
rounds a statement of much greater Importance, In
this view of matteys, than the loose assertions of let
ter-writers. It is, that BIGLErt, PGH, BRIGHT, FITcH,
Joxes, WRIGHT and T'oI'-so, (eight Northern Dem
ir ocratic Senators) are with President BucnANAN, and
ts in favor of receiving Kansas under the Lecompton
Constitution, while STUAuT and BRODERICK are the
only two Democrats in the Senate known to be favora
ble to the course of DOUCLAS. The conclusion drawn
by the Augusta Constitutienalist after looking over
a- the complexion of.the entire body Is, that with all the
Ad Republicans, all the Know Nothings and every doubt
0o ful Democrat thrown to the sid'e of the opposition,
f there will still be an Administration majority of two
s In the Senate. Bat will, more probably reach six
is We have seen no computation of the kind made
of with reference to tho other branch of Congress, but
s5 trust it would exhibit a similar result.
o Mrs DOUGLAS has spoken very vehemently, pnd
with a considerable show of seemingly strong sugges
tions, against the Administration's course. But upon
a careful. perusal of his remarks, we can but pro
nounce them largely ad captandurn. There is one
point especially upon which he very palpably uses the
"harp of a thousand strings." It is, as to the abso
lute necessity of submitting the whole constitution to
the people, if (as allowed by the President) there was
good reason for submitting to them the i.lavery ques
tion. The Senator Bems wilfully to ignore the fact,
or that the slavery question and its adjustment in the
ar territories formed the object and end of the Kansas.
Nebraska act. The bill looked to this as the one greal
he and only question which needed legislation. The re.
a lations of "husbandaand wife," " guardian and ward,"
of "parent and child," were not once dreamed of by itz
framers or supporters in the course of its passage.
in These are the universally recognized relations of mod.
to rn civilization. The relation of master and servant,
to as existant in Southern life, has by no means the likc
ee degree of recognition. It was to avoid further holi
ie issues in regard to it, in our own country and among
our own people, that the patriots of the North an
20 South combined to enact the Kansas-Nebraska bills
It would have been utterly absurd to have set on fool

s5 There are other parts of Mr. DouretAs's speech in
w ihich that distinguished gentleman appears in a
forced and uneasy light. We did not however begin
cthis articeo with the intention of commenting upon
the soundness or unsoundness of his views, but rather
nto enter our concurrence in the general tone of regret
and disapprobation which his remarkable and unex
~peeted course has called forth in all parts of the coun
atry. The Kansas troubles were about to be turned
over to the people of the State of Kansas. The coun
try at large was about to be relieved from their vexa
e, tious consideration.- And it was all proceeding in due
' form of law; when the Senator from Illinois eomes
d furiously on the stage and throws a firobrand among
ithe actors, the flames of which may possibly spread
to the audionce and forbid that the play be played out.
The disappointment and provocation would not be so
ir great, if there was any true necessity for this display
eof " hot ignition." Bunt triere is none. Every step of
the proceedings in Kansas, which have led to the
present Constitution, have been both legal and honor.
able. The territorial.Legislature was the legal and
d only legal Legislature osf the Territory. They acted
s lgally,-indeed, in direct conformity with the Kansas
Nebraska act,-ln providing for a Convention to form
a Constitution. The people wore thus placed in the
attitude of settling their own affairs "in their Own
way." It was all open, honest and fair. The Con
-vetion was legally elected,:was legally convened, and
e finally acted, to the full, with all that high deference
s to law and order whicic usually characterizes assocla
a ted freemen. They went further. They submitted
- the only question in dispute among the people of
a Kansas to their decision at the ballot-box. That de
a ision was to have been made on day before yesterday.
The Constitution will come up to Congress, for slave
yry or against it, according to the result of this voting.
All this has been legal and honorable, and Senator
DOcOLas has been guilty of a grievous falling off
"from his party and the South in attempting to show
the contrary. But for his ill-timed action, the whole
matter would probably have been thrown upon the
people of Kansas, and by them have been peacefully
arranged in the future. With his backing, the spirit
of rebellion in that territory may grow to a size and

the lispings of child-hood into a piece of such tender T
reminiscenes. In ninety-nine cases out of a hundred 11
it would spoil the production,-the reader would p
laugh outright. But in this instance, the thoughts tA
are so pure, the image so lovely, the expressions so h
exquisitc, that the smile quickly yields to the tour, u
and we feel that we are in the presonce of a true a
poet. But to the poem, which we pluck from the b
last number of the " Southern Literary Mensenger :" o
A fair girl stood upon a flowery knoll 0
And held within her hand forget-me-nots;
And by her side a little baby boy
In his third summer, fairer in his bloom 4
Than all the fiow'rs around them dew-besprent, a
And breathing sweeter incense up to heaven.
The little brother's prattle was of " Dod"
Who made the flow'rs. His face so Innocent
Anon upturn'd to gaze upon the sky
That then seem'd.mirror'd in his gentle eyes; t
Anon bent downward to behold the flowers
Whose moist lips seem'd to kiss his tiny feet,
And smiled his infant smile of love on them.
And when his sister kiss'd the flow'rs she held, I
His baby thought he vented thus In words:
" What makes you this the sweet sorget-me-nots,- 1
You tiss'em'tause theylove you, don't you Margie I"
Cold winter passed. Again the girl stood there
Upon the selfsame knoll, but all alone. I
'Twas early spring; nor yet the flow'rs appear'd
Save here and there a lone forget-me-not.
Sadly she gazed around, while Memory
Walked softly where ihe little boy had been.
The birds sang sweet disporting in the sun,
And soon the fiow'rs would ope their dewy lips,
But other eyes than his would gaze on them.
As erst forget-mc.uots were in her hand;
Her thoughts were with her brother,-he in heaven. t
But when again the flow'rets touch'd bar lips,
Was it from them a whisper'd voice came forth
Thrilling and melting all her soul to tears:
" What makes you ties the sweet sorget-ne nots,
You ties sin 'tause they love you, don't you Margie 1"

"Keep prayer a-going. Prayer is the rope in the

Keep on pulling it, and though the bell is up so high
that you cannot hear it ring, depend upon it, it can
be heard in the tower of heaven, and is ringing be

A HINT TO GREAT TALKERS.
A writer in the Boston Atlantic Xagazine aims a
capital hint at that class of fast literati who pride
themselves upon being brilliant talkers. They were
always bores to us after the first quarter of an hour,
and we are really glad te find a very clever person
expressing opinions wo-have long entertained but
hesitated to print. He writeethus: /
"There are men of esprit who are excessively ex
hausting to some people. They are the talkers that
have what may be called jerky minds. Their thoughts
do not run in the natural order of sequence. They
say bright things on all possible subjects, but their
ziz-zags rack you to death. After a jolting half-hour
with one of these jerky companions, talking with a
dull friend affords great relief. it is like taking the
cat in your la) after holding a squirrel.

A WOBEING EDITOR.
Mn. Emront: We often hear Editors complainin,
if the hardships connected with the Editorial .aanctum,
Ld of the 'Devil' calling for "more copy," whei

~d hardships of 8" "ice Editor" in the up-country
rho discharges his private and official duties to th
ntire satisfaction of his any~q patrons and the publi
enrally. The subject of this sketch is Friend Tutoxr
ox, of the "Keowcec Courer." Mr. T. is a practica
rinter, and some four or six years ago, he took chargi
f the " Courier" in the capacity of both Editor ani
rpritor. At the time Mr. T. took charge of th<
Curer," we are cedibly informed it was at
lowc eS" not having subscribers enough to more that
ive it a scantysupport. But with the zeal and energy
hat is characeristic of him, he commenced improving
is paper both in matter and in style, and soon -w<
id his subscription list containing as many, if not
more names, than any paper of its dimensions in the
ip-country. And we are not only informed that Mr
'. writes all of his Editorials, makes every selecticor
hat appears in his paper, and discharges his dutien
s Commissioner in Equity for the District, but w<
iso learn that he (Tuoxse) sets up the type-of the
eater part of the original matter that appears is
tis Journal,.which I assure you is no small amount
ll this he does weekly, and we never hear a single
urmur from him.
In conclusion, we would say, if our canting Editorm
rould take patern after him we would hear less com
ilaning; and wce think there would be no lack of
leas, let the "Devil" come as often as he chooses; fer
follows if a man is industrious himself, his mind
rill be industrious also. CAPT. CnAw
