^very Friday morning. _____
To om SOBSCBIBEBS.-We would call the atten?
tion of thoBe who aro indebted to us throughout
the country, that the oW year ifl closing and their
accounts are not ye? settled. The price of fiub
scription is not large, and will not be missed from
their plethoric pockets. The first of January has
lom: boon celebrated as a day set apart for closing
old u(!counts, and we would not have our friends J
depart from this time-honorod custom. Money is
tho motive power of every enterprise, and news?
papers are no exception, and wo respectfully ask
our country subscribers to cash up and commence
the new year with a clear record.
Tat; HEAVY STOBM prevailing, together with the
1er and snow, havo interrupted tho communication,
and ;i ithing has boen received to-day from either
North or South.
MASONIC-At the annual convocation of Kings
bree Lodge, No. 46, A. F. M., the following officers
woro ? . looted and installed to serve for the ensuing
Masonic year, viz :
Oro. 8. W. MAURICE,.Vf. M.

Bro. J. A. SALTERS, J. D.
tiro. HENRY SOLOMONS, ) fiteward8
Bro. H. H. BARINEAU, f ?tewart18
Pro. CONRAD QWINNER, Tyler.
SOKDAY SCHOOL CELEBBATION.- WO would call
attention to the instructing and entertaining ex?
hibition to take placo at Trinity Church, Hasel
street, to-morrow ovening at 7_ o'clock P. M. All
vf ho enjoyed tho views of the Binoptric Lantern
whaa exhibited in the Charleston College, will be
glad ol' the opportunity now presented to renew
their acquaintance with Palestine, the Aurora, and
tho war scenes. The price of admission is a mere
trifle, and tho amusement and instruction to be
dOTivtxl from a viBit ft?ly repays the expense.
TUE > "OLD SNAP.-Although our venerable friend,
Eighteen Hundred and Sixty-six, is on his last
legt?. ho has apparently collected all of his energies
'io ."<y? the world ho is not yet dead. Saturday
morning was ushered iu with sleet and ice, and
daylight broke on a majestic scene-tho troes had
barrio their wintry fruit during the night, and
.every limb was pendant with icicles, while tho
eaves of tho houses and every prominent object
glittered with the Bamo icy drapery. The Old Year
was evidently weeping over its approaching disso?
lution, and its tears had congealed before reaching
thc earth. By advices from the country wo learn
that othei' sections have been favored with snow,
and in Augusta and Columbia snow-balling was
(played with great vigor by the urchins, who, "Ex
Kgbiot" like, cared nothing for snow or ice. A j
?borre- i fha article was forwarded to this city by j
vferpre... i o'n Florence, and tke>-etouloyeee cf thc
|_co . ii few dub'dorr, indulged in a small game
just K <? . p their hands in. At preaont tho streets
ar e in nh a. miserable condition from the drip?
ping t: a-aiu, that ?we could wish thai Mr. Sixty
Sis hat: c? strained his emotions.
PERAMRULATOBT.-Mr. SHEPARD, the walking
gentleman, we loam, finished his feat at 10 o'clock
last night. He walked one hundred hours with
but t von ty minutes recess in the twenty-four
tours*, Of course he was very much used up ; his
Jbei. swollen, his legs congested, and the whole
frame exhausted. The feat performed certainly was
ono of great difficulty, but would the world bo the
worno if the said feat was altogether impossible ?
y\hat useless expenditure of muscular force I We
know that there are men in every community
(usually known as "sporting" men) who delight in
mich exhibitions, forgetting, as they genorally do
t^at what is sport to them is death to tho per
f'Vimor, That tho pedestrian ie his own master,
and undergoes this torturo of lus own froo
wfll and accord, is no excuse to his abettors
Iq is so with the dog, the cock, thc bull, and the
gentlemen of the "fancy." Such exhibitions do
n<jt conduce to public morality, nor in any posBiblo
vr?y to tho public good, and should be discouraged
by-o very :'ght-minded citizen. If public opinion
WU) only be just to itself, an oxhibit.on of such
questionable character could be readily frowned
doVn, aud we hope tho day is not far dis'.ant when
"pfdostriamsm," understood in Mr. SHEPABD'S
Heifso, will be countod among the relics of a bar?
barous pa ii.
'hil' OLD YEAS.-Tho 31st of December, the last
day of 1800, is upon us, and brings along with it
mingled feelings of gladness and melancholy-of I
gladness in the hopeful anticipation of brighter
dayo to como with the advent of tho New Year, and
of melancholy in reflections on the fleeting nature
of time, und on the destruction of hopes once
proijdiy cherished but now crumbled to the dust.
There is ?iroat truth in the remark of the wiso j
man: " Vanity of vanities, all is vanity."
ki auch a '.imo painful recollections will obtrude
themselves, of time misspent and opportunities
neglected-of the fleeting nature of human life
and human joys, and .that oro many moro |
yew baye elapsed, our joys and sorrows, our
hopes and roars, will all, along with ourselves,
havo "become things of the past. Suoh is the dark
sido o'' the question, but it also has its sunny side
.and its silver lihhig__

On auch an occasion ^ tbia> tho d?B0 of an

I do not remember tho vigils and welcomii

December 20 2 Da? Committee.
Winter, in this climate, is a trying season. It? un.
steady temperature greatly aggravates dyspepsia, and j
acta very unfavorably upon that sensitivo organ, tho
liver. The alternation of frost and thaw keeps the pores
of tho body continually opening and contracting, and the
result is a condition of tho system favorablo to the action
of tho atmospheric viniB which produces intermittent fc
vors. Hence a PROTECTIVE MEDICINE like HOSTETTER'H I
STOMACH BITTERS is especially needed in the winter |
months. The effect of this great CONSTITUTIONAL INVIQ
onANr, in rendering even thc feeblest frome impervious
to all malarious influences, is a grand fact demonstrated
by thc uniform experience of a quarter of a century. As
a stomachic, nu anti-bilious mediciue, and a preventive
and cure of Fever and Ague, it is the ONE THING KEEB
?UL, which nono who vnluo the preservation of health
can afford to do without.
THE KICK, WHEN AT DEATH'S DOOR,
regret that they did not take the right antidote at the
right lime. Thousands who are now suffering from the
early twinges of liver complaint and dyspepsia, will be
prostrate on sick beds a mouth hence, if they do uot nr.
rest 'he mischief ut once. Nothing is moro easy. A
course of thc purest and best vcgotablo tonic and alte?
rative known in modern pharmacy-HOSTETTER'S
8TOMACH BITTERS-will restore thc digestive organs
to their full vigor, and bring tho disordered livor iuto a
condition of permet health, as certainly as eunsJuue dis
sipaies tho morning vapors. Fever and Ague, too, is af.
onco broken up by this powerful antidote to all miasma?
tic diseases. Strengthen the system with the Bitters, and
you may defy all tho complaints which prevail at this in?
clement season. 0 December 31
