A dispatch from Mobile, December 21, states

that any new suits, under the ruling of the deci?

TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 25, 18SG.
Another year has passed around; ago in the
festive season is upon us, when business, poli?
tics, and all tho more serious affairs of life are
for a time in abeyance, and give way to higher
aims and holier thoughts and purposes. Christ?
mas, the annual season of rejoicing, has again
visited us, we behold the present and insensi?
bly institute comparisons with the past. But
this is no season for rejoicing. Things arc not
what they might have been, or even as they
were, but let us thank God that they are as well
as they are. We are, very many of us, in strait?
ened circumstances, bereft of those we loved ;
some of us have had to leave the old homestead,
thc place where we were born, %vhere our
children saw the light; the old hearth where
reposed the sacred memories of thc past, and
around which were clustered the hopes of the
thc future. Chill penury our present posses?
sion, and a dreary, joyless future in prospect.
We have seen many of our friends, formerly
living in affluence, reduced within the past two
years to destitution and beggary. But let us
not despair. Rather let us thank God and take
courage; thank Him for all the merc:' s he has
vouchsafed to us, and take the present as a
happy augury for the future.
We have much to be grateful for. The. past
season was looked forward to with fear and
trembling, and a sickly summer predicted by
some of our best and most experienced physi?
cians. Cholera and yellow fever both were
confidently expected. Yet we have been spared.
There was sickness indeed, but of a very mild
character. There were also the most gloomy
anticipations in reference to the scantiness of
the growing crop. The harvest was not plenti?
ful, but much better than had been counted
In the present uncertain and highly unsatis?
factory state of public affairs it was expected
that business would suffer a corresponding de?
pression, and that our city and State would not
soon recover from the torpor this magic spell
had cast upon them. In this also we have been
agreeably disappointed. Our people have at
last learned to wait patiently for political re?
construction; have surveyed the wrecks and
ruins of their fortunes, and gone to work in
earnest like sober, practical, business men to
make the most of what was 'left, and retrieve
their losses as best they could. It has been
our good fortune, in consequence, to record pro?
gress and improvements from time to. time. Our
city is slowly doffing her habiliments of mourn?
ing. Sackcloth and ashes are giving way be?
fore handsome new iron front storehouses and
substantial cobble stone pavements.
Our public buildings have been refitted; our
institutions of learning are once more in opera?
tion; our charity foundations again subserve
their noble purpose; the churches are filled
with worshippers; our merchants, bankers and
artizans all have their hands full,-have not
even time to stop to think that we are not yet
in the Union. Society has not yet recovered
its former tone, gay and festive gatherings are
still the exception, but there are signs of recov?
ery. The ball is moving, and ere long, we
dare say, will bring things to their old standard.
These are a few of the thousands of blessings
we are enjoying, and wherefor we should be
thankful. And in no way can we testify our
gratitude to God so well for his mercies to?
ward us as by extending these same mercies to
our fellow-men, by feeding the hungry, cloth?
ing the naked, giving shelter to the houseless,
ministering to the sick, and relieving the dis?
tressed of every character. We need not tell
our readers that there are many in our, midst
who are sorely in need of such assistance.
There are many organizations in the city, as
well as private persons, who would be glad to
become the almoners of any one not himself
able to dispense his charity. The Alms House,
a noble municipal charity, would be a suitable
place to distribute ? clothing. ? We have no au?
thority for making this statement, but are satis?
fied that donations would be gratefully receiv?
ed. Let no one say that he or she is .unable to
give; we all can do something; the widow gave
her two mites and has her reward. The Sav?
iour does not forget even the cup of cold water
tendered to one of the disciples.
After being thus engaged in going about and
doing good, we shall be prepared to enjoy the
amenities of the 3eason,--a merry Christmas,
which THE NEWS cordially wishes to all its
INTEBESTTN? LEGAL QUESTION.-Judge MERE?
DITH has just decided a case of much interest lo
many fiduciaries in Virginia, and for their benefit
we'publish the following correct abstract of tho
facts and the decision on them. The case was
thia: - '
An administrator qualified, ?ri December, 1864.
The personal property, consisting of household
and kitchen furniture, was sold in order to pay
funeral expenses, doctors' bills, &c. The sale took
place in December, 186*4, and the property brought
a most, extravagant price in Confederate money, to
wit: $16,693.36. The administrator paid off all the
debts (none being since presented), and there waa
left in his hands the sum of $12,284.29 on the 1st
of April, 1865. He filed a bill in Judge MEBEDXTH'S
Court, asking how this balance should be liqui?
dated. With the facts above stated before bim,
and the additional fact that in orpinary times, say
in 1859 or 1860, the proceeds of the sale of the fur?
niture would have been barely more than sufficient
to pay the debts which the administrator paid, the
Judge decided, and very properly too, we think,
that as the administrator had the right to retain it
in his hands for a longer period/, and as it could
not haye been invested or distributed or further
used in the payment of debts, and as the Confed?
eracy fell within four months after l?z qualifica?
tion, and before it was practicable to obtain an or?
der for the investment of said balance, the admin?
istrator should not be required to discharge the
?said balance in any other than Confederate cur?
rency, and that the estate should he charged with
the same as a loss. -
