knights having entered the lists. The festivities
will wind up with a ball at the Central Houao.
ACCIDENT.-A colored boy named Miller, who was
employed on the Manhattan, was soverely bruised
yesterday by a bale of cotton falling on bim. He
was sent to the City Hospital where his injuries
received proper attention.
PANORAMA OF THE CITY OF COLUMBIA.-A dis?
patch recoived by Mr. Burns, tho keeper of the
Hibernian Hall, announced tho sickness of ono of
the meu:>era of the company, and the consequent
delay of the Panorama. It will not bo exhibited
unt.l af t* r Christmas.
FEBK.-A false alarm of fire early yesterday eve?
ning, called out the engines and served to increase
the confusion in the streets, until the order "about
face" was given, when the machines wcro dragged
A similar alarm sent the engines and our repor?
ter on a bootless chase about one o'clock this
CouNTEBFEiTiNO. -The Augusta papers announce
the arrest of a man named Samuel Overstreet,
hailing from South Carolina, who had attempted
to pass a counterfeit. It appeared that he had
pasted the figuro "20," cut from a Confederate
note, over tho "1" of a one dollar greenback.
Confederate money is not marketable, and the en?
terprising financier lost bis opportunity of making
a fortuno, but obtained bosrd for the Christmas
holidaya where he can think over the subject.
CHRISTMAS SERVICES.-lu the different Episcopa?
lian and Lutheran churches the morning services ?
will be the same as on Sunday, with somo few ex- [
At the Cathedral Chapel there will be a low mass
at 5 A. M., and Pontifical high mass at 10; A. M.,
when a sermon will be preached by Bishop Lynch.
At St. Mary's Church thero will bo high mass at

tho choir, who will be assisted on this occasion by
most of tho leading vocalists in the city. At St.
Paul's Church, Society-street, the services will bo
as on Sunday, and at St. Patrick's besides tho re?
gular services there will bo a low mass at 4 A. M.
THE GERMAN SUNDAY SCHOOL will celebrate their
Christmas festival to-morrow night in tho Hali of
the Bruderliebe Bund, at half-past G P. M. Com?
mittee-M. J. H. Ostehdorff, John H. Ostendorff,
Fred. Muller. We have a lively recollection of marry
a happy Christmas evening, spent in company cf
the predecessors of these SRme German Sunday
School children in tho Military Hall in Wentworth
street, in the good old days before the Freeuman's
Bureau. There used to be fine music, a splendid
Weihnachtsbaum, smiling faces and happy hearts;
all these we shall once more expect to see to-mor?
row night, notwithstanding the hard times wo hear
no much about.
ARREST OF THIEVES.-Sarah Green, a noted
house thief, was arrested a few days since while
endeavoring to enter tho houso of Dr. Bellinger,
on Went worth-street. Several articles of clothing
had been missed at different times, aud it was sup?
posed they had been taken by Sarah. After her
arrest she confessed to Lieutenant Hendiicka that
she was tho thief, and stated where tho missing
goods could be obtained.
The gosnttiug establishment of Mr. Paddon, on
King-street, has been entered on several occasions
and robbed of lead, coppor and brass work. On
complaining to the Detectives, ho was advised to
put a watchman on the store, who caught Tom
Harrison, a- colored boy, aged fifteen, in tho
act of entering by a back door. He confessed thc
previous thefts, and a large portion of the plunder
has been restored.
CHRISTMAS NOISES.-It would be contrary to a
long established custom for the Christmas season
to pass Without some extra demonstration, and
the rising generation followed in tho footsteps of
their elders, and ushered in the day with the
popping of crackers and other musical noises.
Last night these amusements were jxtensively
practiced, and the ear was regaled with the pleas?
ing sound produced by tho tin trumpets, while
craokers were popped fa8t and furiously in every
direction, in total violation of all ordinances in
such cases made and provided. The trumpets are
an abomination, as the noise produced is most
villanous, having no merit that could make them
attractive to any but the owners, who blew them
most lustily. An infantry charge was made last
night in tho neighborhood of this office, and the
vile sound of the trumpets, ming'.od with the dis?
charge of fire crackers, caused all idoas to van.sb
but anathemas against tho disturbers of the public
FOREIGN TRADE.-The export trado of oui' tier
to foreign ports is assuming a largor and more
permanent basis, and as our communications with
tho interior increase, we have no doubt that the
intercourse with tho most prominent Europeau
trading points will largely expand, and bc a source
of pride and profit to our seaport. It afforded us
much gratification to notice the clearance at our
Customhouse yesterday of several large and valu?
able oargoes of cotton for foreign consumption.
Messrs. Street Bros. & Co. cleared the ship R. H.
Tuckor with 217 bags sea isiand and 3175 bales ol
upland cotton ; Messrs. R. Mure A Co. the British
bark Liverpool, with 55 bags 6ta island, 1831 bales
of upland cotton, SOO barrels Rosin, and 1274 sacks
cotton seed ; Messrs. George A. Hoplcy & Ca. tho
Bremen bark Gaus?, f jr Bremen, with 1S11 bales
of upland cotton. Mr. W. P. Hall also cleared,
the day previous, thc Spanish ba. k Sunrise and
tue Spanish brig Galileo, having jointly some 2.00
bales of upland cotton on board for the Barceloaa
FREE EOO-NOGQ will be served this forenoon, to
bis friends and customers, by Fehienbach, the
popular restaurateur of Broad-street. Enough
? hvlctmus Eve,
Yesterday dawned bright, clear and beautiful,
with just enough of winter to make it pleasant.
At an early hon. tho streets wiro filled with peo?
ple, till anxious to procure some luxury for thoir
?ovid one?. All wtro gay, smiling and happy,
from tho benign grandsiio to tho little prattler by
his sillo, and all apparently intent upon tho santo
errand. Tho usual quiut ol' tho city was gono,
sud troni tko popping of crackers and uncouth
sound ot tin horus, hoard in ovary direction, it
waa evident that tho Lord of Misrule had com?
menced his reign and the holidays ?ero fairly
opened. Greenbacks wore brougbt from Some
hidden recess, and tho secret board was spent
iu procuring some long coveted Christmas gift,
i: was evident that thc vast host of buyers who
thronged thc stores during the day wore convinced
that '"it was tar more blessed to give than to re?
ceive, " and their purchases warn made with a lib?
eral band ind without a though' of self. All caica
were forgotten, and the only business that en?
gaged tho attention was to niaks a select ion from
;:uj numerous articles that were presented in lavish
This, tho great emporium o? fashion, aud tho
headquarter* of Santa Claus, was the centre of at?
traction, and was thronged wi lb a happy crowd of
all ages, cl isses, colors and coudilions, oag. r to
exchange their currency for Christmas gilts. The
to\ stores were soon transformed into miniature
L'abcls, where it was a vain effort to keep quiet,
and almost in i08siblc to bc heard. Everybody
wisiied to purchase ami was not willing to bide
ins time. Tbc numerous clerks were kopt busily
employed, but it was a labor of love into whioh all
eutercd with a zest that made shopping for on?c,
a pleasure to both parlies. You Sauten. Kins?
man's, Marion's, and the other toy and confection?
ery stores along tno btreet were prepared for tho
occasion, aud presented to their bewildered cus?
tomers an array of plain, fancy and U3elul articles
that far exceeded any similar display that has been
made for years. Toys, however, were not the only
attraction, the older and thc wiser hoads remem?
bered the Christmas dinner, and d.votod somo of
their time to the purchase of the necessary
groceries, vhile others were busily employed in
procuring an outfit for the New Year at the differ?
ent clothing and dry goods stores. From the Lines
to thc flattery the streets prosented a busy ap?
pearance, totally different from tho usual dulnoss,
but entirely consistent with the joyous Christ?
ON THE STBEET CABS.
Those were immensely popular, and wore
crowded with parties whose purchases bod been
complet, d, or with those who were on their
way to tho busy mart of Santa Claus. The
platforms were oc;upied by packages of every
description, which were watched with a tender
solicitude by th J little passengers. Each trip was
a success, as fractional curreucy was at a dis?
count, and ten cents too trifling a cum to be saved.
DI THE SUBSETS.
The Markets were supplied w.th more than their
usual faro, but ali in abundance. Game was
plentiful and the prices reasonable. Thc first
market, whore tho foatherod tribe are kept,
was the most popular, and the loud remon?
strances of tho geese, turkeys, ducks and fowls,
showed plainly that they did not appreciate
tho summary fato that was in store for thom.
No Christmas dinner is perfect without a tur?
key, and the gobblers were gobbled up by
anxious customers who fea ed they might lose
this delicacy. Geese and ducks carno next on tho
list, Whilo the fowls were reserved for ordinary oc?
casions. Meats of different kindB were displayed
ia tempting profusion, beef, mutton and pork pre
iominating, hut tho moro eavory venison was
found at many attractive stalls. Farther on tho
vegetable market attracted attention, and the old
raaumas m their Christmas turbans anxiously
solicited tho passers to purchase. Their stalls
'vero rilled with ever} thing that was in or out of
season that coul l be procured l'or a Christmas diu
ncr, and their appeals were not unheeded. Tho
fruiterers had each converted thoir stands into
jreen booths whero apples, oionges and bananas,
were suspended from boughs or pine or Christmas
bush, wh: '1 shadowed thoir stock. Still further i
on the shrill cry of "eyoster," donotes that the fish
market had its claims on tho Christmas purse,
while tho numerous tables spread for tho treediu m
sent up savory oaors that were by no moaus dis
agieeable. Throughout the entire length of the
market tho moving throng had apparaatly but one
object-Christmas was com.ng, a good dinner
was a necessity, and it must bo obtained.
Those formed au important part of the body
corporate on this occasion, and certainly succeeded
in making themselves Hoard. In every portion of
the city their shrill voices, calling their stock in
trade, rose lou.i above tho din of drays and othor
c.ty noises. Thoa : itinerant vendors were mustly
strangers, and had visited the city for tho purpose
of raising money by the salo- of their produce,
which consisted principally Oi wood, potatoes, and
game. Thoir prices were far below* those asked in
the markets, and they soou effected an exchange,
which filled their pockets aud sent them on their
way rejoicing. '
In the suburbs a number of persons wero en?
gaged in culling and preparing Christmas trees,
aud the green boughs that were boruo through
the streei8 wero signs that thc cood old custom
wus still in force, aud tho treo3 would soon be in a
pos t.on to produco christmas fruits. At the dif?
ferent churches tiio younger members of the con?
gregations were preparing tho Christmas decora?
tion, and their nimble angers wero employed in
twining tho evergreens into tho proper shapes.
Wreaths, garlands and festoons wore soon formed,
and letters of living green .nforuied the worship?
pers that unto them "a Saviour was born who
would take away ibo 6?ns of thc world."
From early morn to dewy eve tho streets ard
stores preseutcd tho same animatod appearance,
and it was not until a late hour that tho purchases
were concluded, the preparations made, and tho
busy throng retired to dream of the coming
WITH THE POOB.
At this season tho widow and the orphan, the
poor and the distressed, suffer the most and uppeal
most earnestly to our charity and compassions.
No man will enjoy Christmas lue leso for the
knowledge that he has helped to mako thc day
happy for some destitute woman or orphm child,
and at this season a emili sacrifice will onablo our
people to ncc unplisb a vast amount of good. Tho
Ladies' Homo, the Fuel Society, thc Garment So?
ciety, tho Orphan Houses, tho Hosp?nls, aro ul
calling for donations, and it will bo remembered
that every addition to their funds, increases their
power in relieving thoso whom they Lave taken
in thoir kindly charge These sooietie9, theso
representatives of tho poor, whom Christ loved,
must not ask in vain, and in their name we ask tor
all that each citizen can spare, all-however lit?
tle-that eaoh can afford to give.

Til NUTS_Ibis excellent nut, the consumption
of which, both for ita oil and as an article of food,
might be very much extended, can bo raised iii
tho greatest abundance and perfection In this re?
gion; and in tho country around this city we think
it might be made a very profitable.crop, and assist
in diversifying the products of the soil i.i this
neighborhood. The Wilmington (N. C.) Journal
speaks as follows of it :
The Pet Nut Crop.-Tho trade in this product
has been very brisk of late, and, in fact, forn.s no
unimportant portion of tho business ot the city at
present. Within a week past we have noticed on
several mornings that the greater number of carts
in market were loaded with pea nuts.
Tho crop this ye*r ii not so largo as was at fir?t
anticipated, but iaa exceeded that of last year by
se\ eral thousand bushels. Last year tho crop .vas
estimated at thirty-fivo thousaud bushels, aud
even this is considered an over-estimate. This
\ear it is calculated that the crop ?viii reach be?
tween forty and forty-five t lousand bushels at
least, lu spoaking of tho cron. we of course al?
lude to the crop raised ' in this section,
which finds a markot in our city. Tue prices ob?
tained for this product are not, ?o good now by teu
or tiitecn cent j as was theoaso the same time last
Of course the yield would have been much moro

I Th? Now Gctuiuu Lutheran Chnrclit
Our readers will find in another column of thi3
morning's NEWS a i.otico from Rov. L. Muller,
giving tho ordor of thc procession, to he observed
in tho ceremony of tho laying of the corner-stone
ol' tho New Gel man Lutheran Church. Tho occa
Bion is ono of no ordinary solemnity, aud fittingly
was fixed during the joyous period of the annual
Christian holiday. We congratulate our German
fellow-citizeos on tnis auspicious event, aud sin?
cerely v. ish them every success in this iuo.it laud?
There arc epochs in tho lives of individual?,
communities and Dations, breaking tho calm flow
of ovcry day existence, and becoming landmarks
of history. In tho individual wo have birth, mar?
riage and death-so a nation takes its risc, roaches
the culminating point, and thou outers upon de?
cadence. A community, in importance ranging
between these two, ia subject to thc same fluctua?
tions. Although thc occisi?n would seem to sug?
gest a history of tho Germans of Charleston, it is
not our purpose to enter upon so broad a field to?
day; wo design only a low glances at the subject.
Their beginning in this city dates back to a period
anterior lo t c Revolution. Tho German Friendly
Society was formed in 17GC, small as a grain of
mustard seed then, but now a large and flourish?
ing tree, giving shelter and support to many who
call it blessed. Tho Go'mans, simple in their
habits and unprotouding, then worshipped in au
humble wooden structure, near the present l ugo
and handsome church in Arehdulo-street, which
was built in due time, and for over half a century
has been faithfully presided over by thc Rev. Dr.
TUE FIRST OERMAN CHURCH AND SCrtOOL IN
The Friend?? Society, then tho embodiment of
thc Genna ? feeling of the sons of tho F; therland
in this city, had their school and provided for tho
training ol toe young in the language and customs
of their ancestors. Tho transactions of the So?
ciety were all in ibo German language, but not?
withstanding all these honest and paiustauing
efforts of uood old Michael Kalteisen, Eckhard,
Frisch, Tidyman, Strobol, Stoinmoyer, and others,
in process of timo, tho Gorman language foll into
desuetude; and while the church retained tho
Lutheran faith and ritual, and the Friendly So?
ciety preserved intact its ancient German charac?
ter for benevolence and liberality, thc English
languago altogether usurped tho place of the
ST. MATTHEW'S BUILT.
For a while tho newly arrivod German immi?
grants worshipped at Dr. Bachman's church, and
sont their children to tho Friendly Socictv's school;
but aa tho principal bond of unity, identity of lan
guacrc, was lacking, thoso of German birth in 1841
founded a congregation of their own, St. Matthew's,
and in (ho year iollowing, built tho church at the
cornor of Hasel and Ausou streets, in which thoy
have worshipped ever sicco.
Rev. H. F. W. Hecmsoth, their first pastor,
served tho church till the Spring ot 1818, when ho
returned to Germany, and he is now pastor in
Misselwarden, Amt Dorem, Hanover.
Pastor Hcemsoth was succeeded by Rev. L.
Muller, wl o has served the congregation accept?
ably during nearly twenty years. Mr. M. is a na?
tivo of Rhonish Bavaria, passed through tho
gymnasium of Deux Pouts, and completed bis
jlud?63 in philosopha and theology in tho Univer?
sity of Utrecht. Immediately upon his gradua?
tion he cume to tho United States, was ordained
in New York in 1812, and served congregations in
N'ow York and Brooklyn till tho Spring of 1848,
wheu he was called to this city.

WEAT THE CHURCH REGISTER REVEALS.
During tito twenty- ix years of its history 11119
children Lavo b<eu baptized into this church.
Ibero havo baen 31? confirmations, comprising
nearly an equal number of boys and girls; 927 mar?
riages and 2159 funerals. In explanation of these
large figures, it is proper to remark that whilo the
congregation, in tho moro nar ow sonse of mem?
bership, only compnso3 a few uuudred of thc
German population of thc city, it mu3t bo borne in
mind that more than nine-tenths of all the Ger?
mans in Charleston aro Lutherans by o uoation,
and when an occasion in lile prc-sents which rc
qures tho offices of thc churrh, they naturally go
to tho minister of that church, who min?strales,
not only according to tho usago of their fathers,
but also in their nativo tongue
Although tho deaths outnumber the births, it
must not be thought that there has not been a
steady inert ase in this class of our population. As
a rule they enjoy excellent health in our climate,
but tho occasional epidemics, occurring at long
intervals, have made sad inroads into their num?
ber, thc victims being principally from the ranks
of the latest arrived immigrants.
The first cemetery of thc congregation was open?
ed about 1814, on thc corner of Amherst and Hano?
ver streets, and wau used till 1807, when " Betha?
ny," tho ground adjoining tho Magnolia Cemetery,
wai purchased, Which bau boen highly improved,
and in appearance, as iu sitoatisu, is a fitting
Tho Sunday school, in connection with tho St.
Matthew's Church, numbers over 300 children in
romilar attendance, and from 23 to 3u teachers.
Tho Germnus aro, as wo know, much attached to
thek mother tongue, and .as tuey prefer to hoar
God's Word in their nativo acccuts, so as a
rule, they dosire to have tho language taught their
cnildren. ibero is a dr.y schjc-i aiso, therefore,
in connection v.ith tho church, and its Principal
is Mr. A. J. Hoffman, at once thc organist of tho
church, and tue Superintendent of tho Sunday
school. Tho services of Mr. H. are much prized
by his compatriots in this city, and deservedly so,
for during tho three years of his residence in
Charleston ho has accomplished much. Begin?
ning in the Summer of 18OJ with throe childi en,
ho has now a flourishing school of over 200, where
instruction is imparted in all tho elementary
brandies of knowledge, both in English and in
German. Ho also has a night Behool for adults.
Mr. H. is a native of Rhonish Bavaria, passed
through thc Gymnasium ta Spires, and tho Uni?
versity in Munich, where ho chose music aa a
specialty. Siuco his arrival in tuc United StatCB,
abou: fiitecn years ago, be has been constantly en?
gaged in the instruction of youth ; and if we may
venture an opinion in toe premise*, wo should say
that by nature and education ho is admirably
adapted for the responsible duties of his office.
THE NEW CHURCH-DIMENSIONS.
Tho eito of tho new church edifico about to be
erected by this congregation is on thc west side
of King-Street, south of "Vanderhorst, late the re?
sidence of Father O'Neill. Tho building will
measure 1?5 feet in length and 66 in breadth. Tho
nave will be 92 by 54 feet, and tho chancel 24 by
ll. Tho vestry room, 12 by 13, is to bo ou the
northwest corner of tho building. Height of the
arch in navo 54. Thero will bo three ent^anco
doors iu front, and two on thc sides. Tho galle?
ries will be on tho north, east and south ti Joe.
Tho steeple will bo 232V feet in height, higher, by
over 20 feet, than nny oilier in tho city.
8TYL-E Of ARCHITECTURE.
Tho church is to bc built in tho pure Gorman
style of ecclesiastical architecture, in many re?
spects not ualiL'o thc stately Cathodr.il in Broad?
sheet, wbioii was laid in ruins by thc Great Tire.
Tho priucipal door ot entran00 is placed in tho
ccnire of tho tower, which occupies thc middle ol*
thc front elevation. The organ is to bo placed in
the tower. Tho order of arel itectuio is marked
by tho pointed mullioned gothic windows. Of
these there will ! o two rotse; bingle windows un?
der thc galleries, and doue-le above. Tho walls
aie supported by buttresses, terminating in lu?
nacies, connected by a baltlemeu cd parapot.
Tho windows will bc of stained glass-- tue front
window in tho tower twenty-eight feet hiub.
Above tho main centro a richly ornamented "ro?
sette" or "bull's e-vc" for clock."and a large gothic
window r-.bove for thc belfry.
ibo roof of thc tower, from which rises ibo
sprrc in nu octave, is in the form of a cross. Thc
chancel is pentagon.
Capacity of church from twelve hundred io fif?
teen hundred scats. Standing room for throe
thousand. Tho church will bc built of brick, lc
quiring one million two hundred and fiftv thou?
sand ior its walls. The cost is estimated ft about
sixty thousand dollars.
i he a|)i earanco ot tho inside will resemble that
of ?be Citadel Square Baptist Church.
Tho Ceiling will be in tresco; the galleries ha* c
banisters of wool claboritely carved in Lee work
-ali corresponding with rho character of tho .irchi
lectujc. The :;^lierici will bc supported by clus?
ters o: iron columns- -the pews lu oak.
The church will be a grear ornament to our city,
being beautiful io its Byunut-try, and nn imposing
and welt-finished structure. Wc hope that iu timo
the unsightly buildings now obstructing the view
lroiu tho utadol Green will be removed, and tuat
tho square will be surrounded by lare'e und huiul- '
The ground plan is similar to that of a ehnrch
edifico in L iner.bu ig, Pommerania. This resem?
blance, however, i> accidental, tho plan for tho new
Luihorau Church being entirely original.
Di conclusion, it ouly remains to bo said that
Mr. J. H. Dotereux hus projected tho plan, and is
the architect and builder of tho new church.
To the Reader? of tho Dully \ews-Uar
New Term*-The cash System?
Tho announcement that on and after thc first
of January the subscription price of THE DAILY
NEWS will be reduced to Six Dollars a year has
been received with many substantial marks of
appreciation by the public, both in tho city and
State. But in order to publish a first-class
paper ut that low price, wc shall be compelled,
in future, to adhere rigorously to the cash sys?
tem, and require, invariably, the payment of
subscriptions in advance. It should bo gener?
ally understood that everything required for
thc publication of a newspaper-compositiou,
paper, press-work, labor, and expenses of
every description-must unavoidably bc paid
for in CASH at the end of every week. If the
credit system is tolerated, and subscribers
neglect to pay promptly, the losses thus in?
curred by publishers in a little while become
intolerably onerous and oppressive.
There ari hundreds, however, in our city
who, though anxious to take a live newspaper,
and willing to pay for it, can ill afford, at this
time, even the small outlay of six dollars.
To accommodate this class of readers, wc
have made arrangements by which, on and
after New Year's Day, THE DAILY NEWS will
bo delivered, every morning, before seven
o'clock, in all parts of the city, by attentive
and experienced newsmen, at EIGHTEEN CENTS
A WEEK, payable weekly.
The advantages of this plan are evident at a
glance. Those who take their papers upon thc
weekly system only pay out their money, week
by week, as their papers are received ; they
run no risk ; they can stop their paper nt any
time by giving one week's notice ; when they
leave the city ior a few weeks they can suspend
their papors, and be at no expense. The yearly
cost at the weekly rate is more than when the
subscription at our advertised rates is paid in
advance at our office ; but there is tvery reason
to believe that the new plan will, by its sim?
plicity, security, and the smallness of tho cash
expense, enable many persons to take a daily
paper who could not beoome subscribers for as
long a period as six, or even three months. It
is our desire to accommodate all classes of I
readers, and those who arc not able to pay
their subscriptions in advance can take advan?
tage of the weekly arrangement, which will go
into operation on January 1, next.
