WASHINGTON, December 31_Di tho elaborate
opinion of Mr. Justice Davis against the constitu?
tionality of the trial of citizens by Military Courts
the following paragraphs appear: It con never be
in a country of written constitutions, with a judi?
cial department to interpret them, that any Chief
Magistrate would be so far forgetful of his duty
as to ordor the execution of a man who had do?
med the jurisdiction that tried and convicted him.
Tho case afterwards had been brought before
Federal Judges, with power to decide it, who
being unable to agree in the grave question it in?
volved, had, according to known law, sont it to
tho Supreme Court of the United States for deci?
sion. But evon the suggestion is injurious to
the Executive, and we dismiss it from further
consideration. There is therefore nothing to
hinder this Court from an investigation of
the merits of this controversy. The control?
ling question in the case is Ulis: Upon the
facts s ti ted in Mulligan's petition and exhibits
filed, had the Military Commission mentioned in
the exhibits jurisdiction to sentence Mulligan, ho
not being a resident of the rebellious States or a
prisoner of war-a resident of Badiana for twenty
years psst, and uever in the military or naval ser?
vice-ia, while at his homo, arrested by the milita?
ry power bf the United States, imprisoned, and,'
oh cort lin criminal charges bronght against him,
tried, convicted and sentenced to be hanged, bv a
Military Commission organized under tho direction
of the commander of the Military District of In?
diana. Had this tribunal the legal power and
authority to try and punish this man ? ~ ?o graver
question was ever considered by this Court, nor
one which more' nearly concerns the rights of the
wholo people^ for it is the birthright of every
American citizen, when charged with crime, to bo
tried and punished according to law. The power
of-punishment is alone through the means which
the laws have provided for that purpose, and if
they aro ineffectual, there is an immunity from
punishment, no matter how grave an offender the.
individual may be, or how much his crimes may
have shocked the sense of justice of the country
or endangered its safety. -

Tlie old English poet hore givos in a few linos a
very lively picture of the Now Year's holiday, as
observed in the olden time. There always has
been moro or less festivity connected with the
celebration of tho New Year, both with Jew and
Christian, Fagan and Mahommedan. The transi?
tion from tho old year to tho new is naturally
suggestive of feelings both of sorrow and of joy.
All feol tho solemnity of the occasion; sorrow and
regret at the departing year, joy and welcome to
the now, that carries in ita bosom so much of hope
and happiness. Of all periods this is tho most
usual, as it is tho moat fitting, for looking inward,
for self-examination, for forming resolutions to do
botter, for turning- over a new leaf, for taking a
frcBh start, etc. An old writer has tho following
apropos remarks :
Every first of January that wo arrive at is an im?
aginary milestone on tho turnpike track of human !
lite; at once a resting place for thought and medi?
tation, and a starting point for fresh exertion in
the performance of our journey. Tho man who
does not at least propose to himself to bo bettor
this year than he was last, must be either very
g" od or very bad indeed 1 And only to propose to
be better, is something ; if nothing else, iv is an
acknowledgment of our need to be so, which is the
first step toward amendment. 1 But, in fact, to pro?
pose to oneself to do well, is in some sort to do
well, positively; for .there is no' such thing os a
stationary point in human endeavors ; ho who is
not worse to-day than he was yesterday, is better;
and he who is not better, is worse..
Merry-makings on New Year's Eve and New
?ear's Day are of very ancient date in England,
noir proximity to Christmas doubtless gives them
somewhat of a. .Yule coloring. The head of the
house assembled his family around a bowl of ]
spiced ale, usually called 'lamb's wool," from
which he drank their healths, then passed it to the
rest that they might drink too, saying Wass had !
(to your health). Hence this came to be recog?
nized as tho Wassail bowL The poorer class of I
people carried a bowl adorned with ribbon a round j
the neighborhood, begging for something where?
with to obtain the moans of filling it, ;hat they
might enjoy wassail as well as the rich. In their
compota tiona they had Bongs suitable to the occa?
sion ; doggerel many of them, but brimful of rus?
tic innocence and good fellowship.
In Scotland the wassail bowl was held in sacred
reverence up to a vory recent period. On the ap?
proach of twelve o'clockj a hot pint was prepared- j
that is a kettle or flagon of warm, spiced, and !
sweetened ale, with an infusion of spirits. Whon
the clock had struck tho knell of tho departed
year, each member of the family drank of this
mixture 'A good health and a happy New Year, and |
many of them' to all the rest, with a general hand?
shaking, and perhaps a dance round the table,
with the addition of a song to the tune of Hey I
Ivllie take : $|
Woel may we a" be,
ni may we never see,
Here's to the king
And the gudo companicl tee.
The elders of the family would then most probably
sally out with the hot kettle, and bearing also a
competent provision of buns and short-brood, or
bread and' cheese, with tho design of visiting their
neighbors, and interchanging with them tho same
cordial greetings. If they met by the way an?
other party similarly bent, whom they knew, they
would stop and give and tako sips from their res
poctive kettles. Beaching the friend's house, they
would enter with vociferous good wishes, and soon
send the kettle a circulating. If they were tho
first tb enter the houso since twelve o'clock,- they
wore deemed aa the first foot; and, as such, it was
most important, for luck to the family in the com?
ing year, that they should moke thoir eutry, not
empty-handed,- but with their hands full of oakes
and bread and cheese, of which, on the other hand,
civility demanded that each individual in the house
In Holland, the New Year is made much more of |
than either in England or in other parts or the
Continent, and the Gotham!tes, to this doy, faith?
fully observe this cheerful institution, handed
down to thom from their Knickerbocker ancestors.
The giving of gifts, presents to friends, and sub?
stantial assistance to the indigent, is au old and
time-honored custom. Whon pins were first in?
vented and brought into use about the beginning
of tho sixteenth eentury, they were a New Year's
gift very acceptable to ladies, and money given for
the purchase of them was called "pui-monoy," an
expression which hos been extended to a sum of J
money secured by a husband on his marriage for
the private expenses of his wife. Pins made of
metal, in thoir presoct form, must have been in
use some time previous .to 1543, in which year a
statute was passed (35 Hen. VIII, c. 6), entitled
"An Acta for the true making of Pynnos," in which
it was enacted that the price charged should not
exceed 6s. Sd. a thousand. Pins were previously
made of boxwood, bone, and silver, for the
richer classes; those used by the poor were of com?
mon wood-in fact, skewers.
The custom of giving of presents among rela?
tives and friends has much declined in England,
but is still kept up with surprising vigor in Paris,
where the day is especially recognized from this
circumstance as Le Jour a?Etrennes. Parents then
bestow portions on their children, brothers on
their sisters, and husbands make settlements on
their wives. The mere externals of the day, as
observed in Paris, are of a striking character; they
were described as follows in on English journal, as
observed in the year 1824, while as yet the restored
Bourbon reigned in France : "Carriages," says
this writer, "may be seen rolling through the 1
streets with cargoes of bon-bons, souvenirs, and [
the variety of etceteras with-which - little children
and grown up children are bribed into good humor;
and here and there pastrycooks aro to be met with,
carrying upon boards enormous temples, pagodas,
churches, and playhouses, made of fine flour and
sugar, and the embellishments which render
French pastry so inviting. But there is one street
in Paris to which a New Year's Day isa whole
year's fortune-this is tho Bno des lombards,
where tho wholesale confectioners reside; for in
Paris every trade and profession has its peculiar
quarter. For several days preceding the 1st of
January, the street is completely blocked up by
tho carts and wagons laden wita eases of sweet?
meats for the provinces. These ore of every form
and description which the' most singular fancy
could imagine; honchos of carrots, green peas,
.boots and shoes, lobsters and ' crabs, bats, books,
musical instruments, gridirons, frying-pans, and
sauce-pans; all made of sugar, and colored to im i
tate reality, and all made with a hollow within to -
I hold the bon-bons. The 'most prevailing device Is -
what is callad e.'cornel; that is, a little cone oma- j
mon'ed in different ways, with a bag to draw over J
the large end, and close it up. In these things,.
the prices of which vary from one frone (20 cents)
to fifty, the bon-bons are presented by those who
choose to be at~the expense of them, and-by those
who do not, they aro .only wrapped ina pioce of
paper; but bon-bons, in someway or other must
be presented. . It would not, perhaps, be an ? exag?
geration to state that tho amount expended for
presents on New Year's Day in Paris, for sweet
moats alone, exceeds 500,000 franca, or ?20,000
sterling. Jewelry is also sold' to a very large I
amount, and the fancy articles exported in the first '
week of the year to England and other countries,
is computed at one-fourth of the salo during the
twelvemonths. In Paris it is by no means unwm- !
.mon for a man of '8000 or 10X00 francs a yea.:, to
make presents on New Year's Day which cost' bim
a fifteenth part of his income. No personable to
.give muston this day pay a visit empty-handed;
Everybody accepts, ona every man gives according '
to the means which he possesses: Females alono '
are excepted from the charge of giving. . A pretty '
woman, respectably connected,may reckon her
New Year's presents at something considerable:
Gowns, jewelry, gloves, stockings, and artificial
flojera nil her-drawing-room; for in Paris it is a
-custom to display all tho gifts, in order to excite
emulation, and to Obtain as much as possible. - At
the palace, the New Year's Day is a complete jour
-d? jete. Every branch of the royal family is then
expected to moke handsome presents to the king.
For tho six months preceding January, .1824, tho
female branches were busily occupied in preparing
presents of their own, manufacture, which would
fill at least two common-sized wagons. The Duch?
ess de Berri painted an entire room of Japanned
panels, to be sat up in the palace, and the Duchess
of Orleans prepared on elegant screen. An Eng
Uah gentleman, who was admitted suddenly iat<
the presence of tho Duchess do Berri-two months
before, found her and three of her maids of honor
' lg on the carpet, painting tho legs of a set of
HTS, which wera intended for tho king. The
day commences with tho Parisians, at an early
hour, by the interchange of their visits and bon
bona. The nearest relations are visited first, until
the furthest in blood have had their calls; then
friends and acquaintances. The conflict to antici?
pate each other's, calla, oocasions the most agree?
able and whimsied scenes among these proficients
in polite attentions. In these visita, and in gos
sipping at the confectioners'''shops, Which are. the
great lounge for the occasion, the morning of New
Yoar'e Dav te passed; a dinner is given by some
member of the family to all the rest, and tho evon
ing ocTjomdes, like Christmas Day, with cards,
dancing, or any other amusement that may bo

JANUARY lat, 1867.
TN ADDRESSING HIS NEW YEAR CIRCULAR TO THE
pubUc, the Proprietor of the almost world-renowned
"HAT HALL." No. 313 King street, between Liberty and
Wentworth streets, cannot permit tho occasion to pass
without expressing his heartfelt thanks to his very numer?
ous patrons for the very liberal manner in which they
have shown their appreciation of the great reduction in the
prices of Hats since tho opening of tho "Hat Hall" in
1849. . ' . ' --j* '-. !
The post and tho future, with curtains hung, separates
from our view that which we once saw, and that which is
to bo seen. But memory, grateful memory, brings to
thc mind of thc Proprietor of tho "Hat Hall" tho past
It is truly a privilege, allowed us by Him who watches
over us, to recall to view in tho mind acta of kindness
received from fcllow-man
In this strain of thought, STEELE returns his thanks
to tho public In general for the unbounded Bupport which
he has received during the last year ; and to those who
may yet not know of the location of., the "HAT HALL,"
we would say it is at No. 313 KINO STREET, sign of the
'Tis true the "Hat Hall" hos rules which govern its
dealings. It solicits only cash trade, but proves that the
prices axe lower for HATS and CAPS sold there than the
same goods can be procured for elsewhere.
In con elusion. STEELE would dedicate tho following
lines to tho public :
Of all the thousands that have bought
STEELE'S Hats and Caps, BO finely wrought,
Some, although "few and far between,"
Perchance have disappointed been.
If so, albeit he hos not heard
That disappointment has occurred,
