she desired wealth, she would stake the one
against the other, and submit the resr.it to the

?The effect "f the revision of the law regarding
the Income tax, made at the last s.-sslon of Con
gress, is seen in the ilght of the present reports.
An analysis of the returns for the past year shows
that, wi I h the present exemption of SUOOO and
renf. taxes, interest, Ac, there is not a country
district In the Unite ! States where tae amount of
the Income tax will pay the expenses ol assessing
and collecting: it. The New York Evening I'ost
suggests that the present session should complete
the work of the last by abolishing the tax alto
gether. This would be a short way to get out of
the difficulty, and for that reason most nnlikely
to be adopted. More than three thousand assist
ant assessors protest against it, for with the abj
lltlon of the income tax each of the states couid
be consolidated into a ?Single district, and the
army of office-holders mustered out. It is now
the rich men's turn to agitate against the contin

salaries, while Stewart and Astorantl such princes
are bled for a fortune each year. Mr. Stewart,

one thousand: coolie plantation bauds in the
South at work In the States of Arkansas, Loulsi
ana and Texas, au l of these only three hundred
signed their contracts in China, the remainder
having been brought from San Francis o. In
Tuunessee, Alabama ?ud Texas there are about
tiro thousand live hundred coolies at wo:k on
railroads, all or whom signed their contracts In
Stn Francisco. In addition there arc iu the
South about four hundred Chinese who havo es

Cuba. A contract for one thousand Chinese to
be sent to Saasas is now being filled by dispatch

Agares it appears that there are. or soon win be,
five thousand Chinese working east of the Rocky
Mountains, only three hundred of whom came
d'rect from China, the remainder having bees
hired in Culiforuia, as any other class of opera

went to California In 1850, where he entered
largely into business relations with the Chinese,
by establishing a warehouse for the storage of
rice, tea, oil and the general merchandise of
China. ' _
A Printer's Holiday.
j In deference to a formal request from the
employees of The News, our office will be
closed on Monday next, and no paper will be
issued on Tuesday. It ha3 not been the
custom of this paper, as the public knows,
to indulge in what are called "printer's holi
days;" butin this instance we have felt con
strained to make Merry Christmas an ex
ception to our rule.
To-morrow is Christmas : the day of days ;
when the sublime harmonies which nine
teen centuries ago sounded on the plains of
Bethlehem are echoed in the souls of Chris
tian millions ; when the memory of the
jjreat Evangel blaots tho edge of bitter
sorrow ; when age drives cankering care
away, and youth beholds a myriad hopeful
gleams in the uncertain vistas of the future!
For five years the South ha,8 struggled to
heal the wounds of horrid war. The people
have worked with dogged energy that they
inii?ht wrest fortune from the iron teeth of
adversity. It is true that the prospect is
not as bright as when the summer heats
ripened the silvered soil. But the people
know their power. Blows and buffets have
strengthened their moral fibre. They have
leurned the sweet uses of ullliction. They,
feel that, in God's good time, self-reliance,
self-reverence aud self-control will give them
tho crowning victory.
Yet the thronging memories of four years
of carnage are not obliterated by the events
of five years of peace. In every breast there
lingers the remembrance of martyred saints,
who, in the flash of manhood or with the
snows of winter on their brow, fought and
bled under the gleaming banner whose stars
have faded from oar sight?whose cross we
would gladly bear forever. These knight ly
soldiers?our comrades, our brothers, fathers,
sons?taught the South, by I heir death, a
lesson of endurance and fortitude, of cour
ageous* perseverance and unselfish devotion,
whose fruit will live whatever else may die.
Cheerfully as we may, then, let us turn
to the Christmas merry-making. It is a
season of kindness and love; of charity and
peace. The poor have a peculiar claim;
they depend upon Iheir prosperous neigh
bors for their Chrictmos festival. And this
is the time when Um sinning and the sinned
against may pluck the bitterness from their
lua-ts, and forgive as they expect to be for
given. For them who cherish animosity aud
nurse their angor, however just it seem,
there is no happy Christmas.
Faith in Providence, hope for the future,
charity towards all men?these are the
Christmas ^ifu which will, we trust, be found
on the rnjrrow m every home in the State.

Our Christmas Carol.
"Our song we'll troll out for ClirLstmas stout,
Tos hearty, the true and the bold ;
A bumper we'll drain, awl with mlsht and main
Give three cheers fur tins Christmas old.
We il usher him in wit?i a merry dm.
That nhall gladden ids jovou- In-art.
Ahd we'll ki -p nlm u|i while there's bite or sup,
And iu fellowship good \\\!ii pan,"
Thank God for this returning anniver
sary?happy, happy Christmas; Llio season
of all others that lights not only the fire of
bospitali y in the hall, but the ilanie of
charily in the heart ; the season that wins us
back to the delusions of childish days, re
call to the old man the pleasures or his
youth, and warms the liresido with memo
ries of the tender, aud the true. Yes, it is
the only anniversary in all the year not
forced upon mankind by proclamation: the
only one which, in the lessons of the hour,
teaches more of human sympathy and Chris
tiau lovo than half the homilies ever written
by half the divines that have ever lived.
That man must indeed be a misanthropic
sinner, who, apart from the veneration due
to its sacred Dame and origin, can think of
Christmas time as any other than a good
time?a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant
time?when men and women aeem, by one
consent, to open thcit s^alcd-up hear's and
think of the people around them as if they
really were feilow-passenirere to the grave.
What sweeter I bought, too, than that there
is at least one day in tho year when you are
sure of being welcomed wherever you go, and
of havin?, as it were, the world thrown open
to you. True, the past may bo hung in mourn
ing. Vacant chairs may be around the lire
side; the footsteps'of prattling little ones
may no longer lightly print tho ground;
father, mother, brother, sister or husband
may be celebrating their eternal Christmas
before "the Jasper Throne." Perhaps the
looks of friendship chat shone so brightly
once have ceased to tjlow; the hands wo
grasped have grown cold; tho eyes we sought
have hid their lustre in tho grave; yet there
will come to us to-morrow "glad tidings'1 of
even those who have :,rone before. The old
home, the room, the merry facc3, circum
stances the must minute and trivial, will
crowd upon our mind as if the last assem
blage had been but yesterday; hope will
build new lires upon the altar of the heart,
and love will gather there to be renewed in
the fresh and genial warmth.
Let Christinas, then, be fruitful in it3joys.
Let the averted face.s with which wo have
met old friends be changed to smiles. Amonu;
the red berries and holly busies, among the
turkeys, geese ami game, the pigs, saus
ages and oysters, the pu Klings, pies aud
punches?among emblems of the blessed
season hung in every san-.iuiry, hall and
kitchen?let us hold fanerai service over all j
petty jealousies and private wrongs, and so
bury forever the animosities that deform our
human nature. At best our hearts need
correcting as much as ever did the first
proof of a printer's devil, and before life's
edition is worked off another year for expor
tation to eternity, why ought wo not to re
solve that the errors which now mar the
sullied page shall not stand against us when
tho volume of our history is finally revised by
the Author of the universe ? Thanking God,
then, for present blessings, let us use them
as the best of besoms to sweep out litter
from the attics and cellars of our poor human
nature, and brush down the cobwebs of care
that have gathered in its dark corners. Nor
should we extend these favors to the body,
and, as it were, put a clean shirt upon the
soul, for die reason that "to-morrow we
die;" but we are to do these in remembrance
of the time when a sin-sick world first
began to experience the cheering symptoms
To-morrow tue civilized world?all peo
ples and nations, knit together by a mighty
thought?will become ono great family.
Flappy bells will send as their greetings to
each Christmas fire?
"Good will and peace I peace and good will I
The burden of the Advent Song."
And in a myriad of bome3, the same festi
val that every year bas stirred the heart of
mankind, will again gather youth and age
around the happy fireside.
A Christmas family party ! What magic
there is in the name. Whatman or woman,
sending memory on its grateful errand, does
ot linger with a Hush of happiness upon the
associations that are recalled. The com
ing home from school, tho greeting of
parents, brothers, sisters, cousins and aunts;
tho welcome of the old-liino nurse in ber
fresh bandana and immaculate neckerchief;
the roaring fires in the parlors and bed-rooms ;
the wonderful hampers, aud the handsome
girls hooded and booted for any sort of
Christinas fun. And Christmas Eve ! How
the great tree?very mighty in our young
imagination?planted in the middle of the
table, sparkles with its multitude of little
tapers that find reflection in our 'dancing
eyes, while wo wait for the distribution of J
the toys, that peep like fairies from among
the leaves. Grandpapa and grandmama are
there; brothers who have just come from
school and college; uncles from the cities,
and maiden aunts, with pockets full of love I
and bon-bons. By-and-by, bed-time ar
rives, and we little ones are sent to dream of
Santa Claus, and wonder what our stockings
will be freighted with, when at daylight we
hurry from our trundles to the chimney jam.
The eveuing concludes with the time-honor
ed Christmas dance, and a glorious game of
blind-man's-buff, in which the pretty girls
take refuge behind the window curtains,
and get mad ir yuu fail to make jour
eliptical Balutes with a vim. Theoldpeo-j
pie, all delight, sit in the cosiest corner of
the fire-pluce, and sipping their egg-nogg or j
Bteaming apple-jack, watch with glistening
eyes tho lively youngsters who remind them
of Merry Christmas long ago. King among
the musicians is the hoary-headed old Ethio
pean, who has played dance-music in the
family for a quarter of a century, and to
night, all mellowness, he scrapes his fiddle
until it shrieks with fifty stomach aches;
while dusky house-servants, peeping in at
the windows and door-ways, keep time
with nimble feet to the jollity of the hour,
and all goes "merry as a music bell." And
so ends Christmas Eve, bat only to usher iu
the cheerfulness of the day to come. Aud
that day ! All, how crowded with memo
ries. Memories of a home-gathering of all
the accessible members of the family circle;
of home lio3 renewed, aud love wanning
every heart Memories of your mother, who,
with tender thoughtfalness, and grateful Tor
lier own pleasure, Las sent heaping bask
ets of good things to the families of lier
poor neighbors, who, but for her largesse,
would have had no Christinas. Memories of
the lust Christmas blessing ever asked by
him who presided; of a room all aglow with
ruddy lighl, and a board spread with such
an array of feathered phenomenon in every
stage of sissiug excellence, gigantic pud
dings bluziug iu brandy, and choice wiues,
with the bouquet of whole generations in
tiicm, as make us think, iu these changed
limes, we have been living in a dream.
But no ! Chris tin us is just us real to us
to-day as it ever was to our forefathers.
Our children will recall its happy 3cenes,
just as we gather the tangled ends of our
own reminiscences. Friends are as true,
and affections us tender around us, now,
os when we ourselves were budding into
serious men and women; and if wc do our
duty, changed as may be our circumstances,
the season will preserve all its sacred charm
for us and our little ones; and the lesson
will continue to be written upon our hearts?
"This do in remembrance of Me !" And so,
a Merry Christmas to you all, aud God bless
us, every one !
Itemciubur the Poor.
The season of gladness is upon us. In
happy homes to-day begins the rosy reign
of mirth aud jollity and innocent rejoicing.
The Christmas tree is already blossoming
in some hiddeu recess with its wondrous,
but, as yet, forbidden fruit. The blithe ar.d |
expectant little ones are making ready to
hang their stockings by tho chimney-piece,
with grave misgivings as to their capacity to
hold the good things to be distributed in the
night-time by the slyly-generous Santa Claus.
Families are everywhere gleeful with the an
ticipation of merry gatherings around the
plenteous board and festive libations from
the foaming bowl. Bleak and wintry though
thu sky be out of doors, around the hearth
stone joy and comfort aud social happiness
rule the iiour.
But not to all homes will Christmas bring
the appropriate merry-makings mid delights.
Right here, in this good old City of Charles
ton, there is many a family whose desolate
hearth t?lows not, even in this bitter weath
er, with the ruddy blaze of the yule log, or
of any substitute, and to whom one plain/
hearty meal would be a Christinas feast in
I deed. To these unfortunates, too many of
whom have known better days, let each man,
woman and child, who reads those lines at
the breakfast table this Christinas Eve, give
something better than mere sympathy.
There are several uoble relief societies in our
community, ready and anxious to relieve
the charitable of the trouble and responsi
bility of seeking out the distressed and real
ly deserving poor. Tiie Fuel Society, espe
dally, crave assistance to-d?y; and the bit
ing December blasts dismally second their
pleading. Any Christmas offerings, either
in money or fuel, that may be sent to the
