it would be disastrous to the slaveholding States
of the Confederacy ; would institute a traffic

As the season is upon us, we pluck from an old

but will not come amiss to American readers:
" Dreary would December be, did it not bring with
It merry Christmas, with its holly, and ivy, and nmis.
titoe, through the leaves of which peepi the scarlet,
and purple, and dull white berries, giving a green
and Sunmmer appearance to our rooms, and throwing
a cheerfulness around our hearts. We see the laden
coach rolling puast our window, piled high withs gamue,
hare', anad pheasants, and great white geese, and
black turk,-ys, whose plumage the wind blows back
as they swinag suspended fronm the roof; conjuring up
visions of huge cionfortable tires, well-spread lable,
an d hs ppy faces, alt congregated to do honour to good
Old Christmna. whom Southey hus beautifully drawn
as seated bieside the hlgh-heaped hearth in his great
aredchair, watching the children at their sports, or
pausing at timoes to stir the huge fire, and every now
and then sipping tihe bright brown ale. For nights
ofore the hippy seiason arrives, we hear the village
bells, awakkening the surrounding silence by their sil
ver mnusii, aind throwinag a cheerful sound over the
wild wintry landscape. When the morning of that
od anid hoaly day arrive<, we hear the rustic waits
chanting sonic simple Christmas carol, as they stand
in the grey mooiilight, at the fronit of the picturesque
parsonage-house, telling how Christ was on that day
born, and that while shepherds were attending their
floks by night, the Angel of the Lord descended, and
proclaimed tidings of~ peace and good will to all man
kind. H~ow plaintive and tremuleus do those olad
chants fall upon thme ear, sinking noiselessly and
peacefully into the heart, and filling the soul with a
holy andl reverential awe; and, while the cock from
the neig;hbiuring farm miakes answer to the carol of
the village waits, we recal that exquisite passagfi of
Shakspere, in which, alluding to soine old supersti.
tion, he says:
"Some say, that ever 'gainst that season conmes
Wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated,
This bird 'af dawning singeth all night long."
"From the first introduction of Christianity into
these islanids," says the llook of Christmas, " the
period of the Nativity seems to have been kept as a
season of festival, and its observance reciognisedt as a
matter of state. Thme WVitenngemnots of our Saxoan
ancestors were held under the solemn sanction anid
beneficient Influence of the time; andI the series of
high festivities established by the Anglo-Saxon kings
appear to have been continued with yearly increasing
splendour ad mnultipalied cursimnicis umnder the sman.
arebs of tbe Normian race. Fron the Court the spirit
of revelry descendiedl, b~y all its thoiu.-andls of arteries,
throughout the universal frame of society, visiting its
furthest extremities andi most obscure -recesses, and
every where exhibiting its action, as by so many pul
se, upona the traditions, and superstitions, and cuy
toms which were conmmon to all or peculiar to each.
The pomp and ceremonial oaf the Roiyal oibservance
were imsitated in the splendid establishiments of the
more wealthy nobles, and far mnore faintly reflcted
from the dimnisihed state of tihe petty baron. The
revelries of the baronial castle foundi echoes in the
hall of the old mnor-hiiuse, amid those were again
repeated in the tapestried chamber of the country
magistrate, or from the sanaded parlour of the village
in; merriment was every where a matter of public
concernment, and the spirit which assembles men in
families now congregated thenm by districts then.
Such, indeed, was the merry Christwms of the olduin
time. The whole widle ciumntry was thieii tilled with
rejoicing: in the bannierredl hall the long tables were
Ispread ; on the ancienat armuour and the antlers of the
wild deer, hilly, and ivy, and mistletoe were placed;
the huge yule tog went roaring Upi thme wide old-fash
ioned chimneys, and cold although it might be with.
out, all was warnm and comnfortable within. The large
wassail-bowl-a load of itself when full-was passed
round, and each one befure he dramn k, stirred up the
rich spices with a sprig of -rosemary, while the cooks
(says an old writer) "luoked as black and greasy as
a Welsh porridge-pot." Rtiast goose and roast beef,
minced pie", the famous blar's head, plum porridge,
and plums pudding, together with no end of sausages,
and drinks of every description, but chief of all,
the " bowl of lamb's-wool," seem to have formed thme
staple luxuries of an old Christmas dinner. But even
more than two hundred years ago the cry was raised,
" is old, good oldh Christmas gone ?-nothing lint the
hair of his good, grave, old headI and heard left!"
Or we turn to those by-gone times, so bieautifully
and feelimngly described by Irving, who says:
"Christmas seemed to throw open every door, and
unlock every heart. It brought the-peasant and the
peer together, and blended all ranks in one warm
generous flow of joy and kindness. The old balls of
eatles and mnanor-housies resounded with the harp
and the Charistomas carol, and their ample boards
groaned with the weight of hospitality. Even the
poorest cottage welcomed the festive season with
green decaorationms of hay sand holly ; the cheerful fire
g'anced its rays through the lattice, inviting the pas.
senger to raise the hatch and join the goissip knot
huddlud round the hearth, beguiling the long evening
with legendary jaikes and oft-told Christmas tales."
In our eye, Chiristmas never looks so beautiful as
.when it has heen ushered in by snow, and frost, andl
'ime; when the thatched roofs of the cottages are
whitened over, and the branches of the trees are laden
with feathery flakes; when the ivy that covers the
grey and weather-bea~ten church-porch is half buried
beneath the weight of accumulated snow, as If

I must now leave this subject, as pleasant and inter
ing as it is, and give you an idea or two of what
oy are doing In Congresr.
The long pending "Watrous case," has at length
en disposed of by a refusal (and I think correctly)
the part of the House, to send the accused to the
nate for trial. The vote against preferring articles
impeachment was very decisive, there being a
ijority of 20 in favor of the Judge. The discussion
this subject was characterized by great ability. It
led out tho first lgal talent of the House. The
bate was closed yesterday by Mr. Houston, of the
ate of Alabama, Chairman of the Judiciary Com
ittee, in a speech of great power and eloquence, in
vor of the impeachment. The action of the House
this subjec, is just what might have been antici
ted under the circumstances df the case. The im
achment of Judge Watrous was asked for by the
ixas Legislature, and by urgent appeals from indi
luals who alleged fhat they had been defrauded Ity
rrupt practices of the accused. But upon the mer
i of the accusation the Representatives from Texas
are divided in opinion. It is true they both voted
r sending the case to the Senate, but Mr. Bryan, in
us voting, announced his belief that the party ar
igned was an innocent and persecuted man. With
is radical disagreement between gentlemen repre
nting the community Immediately interested, it is
ot at all remarkable that the House should hesitate
go the length of an impeachment.
Central American affairs are getting mightily
mixed up;" and it will require no small degree of
plomatic skill to-straighten out matters in that
:arter. The boarding of the American steamship
W &A igt,,5i,,," by the Britisel Officers, in the harbor
' Greytown, looks very much like a violation of
ngland's pronise to abandon the "right of search,"
>twithstanding Sir Win. Gon Oaseley's placid ex,
anatury to the contrary. Our Uovernment will be
ty apt to adoptAho common sense ounclusion, that
cre is an irreconeilable inconsistency betweeti the
-ufessed relinquis ment of a certain practice, while
at very practice i being carried out, enforced. The
intinued maintenance of a protectorate ovee the
osquito Coast under that bungling ambiguous doe
nent, yelopped, the "Clayton Bulwer treaty," in the
ce of our repeated protests against her interprela
>n of that instrument, will also call for fresh expla.
tions. Gen. Cas, our old anD4 patriotic Secretary
State, is fully competent to conduct the correspon.
ne and negotiation involved in these complicated
Restions. In the mean time our enquiring patriots
ay employ their anxious moments in speculations
)on the proper inswer to be given to the startling
testion, "Will there be war."

ges of entering their children at the first of the ses

irregular attendance at school, is the origin of
greater hindrances to a child's progress In learning
than any other cause. How indifferent will a child
soon become to its books if indulged In irregular
stu.ly, and how despondent must it become, when,
after a few days or weeks absence, It sees its class
mates wading depths that It can not fathom! Is it
not too likely to conclude that its intelleet is weak,
and that it must not dare to aspire even to medi
