ence for solitude, ant finding other cemeteries
limited as to race by-charter rules I bave
chosen thia that I might Illustrate lo my death
the principles which I advocated through a
long life-equality of man before his Creator."
-In Ahe United States Senate, on Thursday
last, Mr. Robertson presented the petition of
Thomas P. Bailey, M. D., of Georgetown,
Sooth Carolina, grand nephew ot Thomaa

resentatives of the co-hetrs of Robert S.Batley,
praying to be Indemnified for spoliations com?
mitted by tba French prior to the year 1801,
which was ordered to lie on the table.
-A New York letter says: "The eldest of the
Misses Greeley, whose name la constantly
mentioned aa having lost her betrothed upon
the ill-fated Missouri, la too absorbed In her
real grief to discover through the press all the
many unpleasant things which associate her
nama with that of Mr. Hampstead. She not
only waa never promised to him in marriage,
but such a thought was never entertained by
her, and whatever hopes the poor fellow may
have entertained and been unwise enough to
express to his-friends, Miss-Greeley waa
wholly Ignorant of them on til she Baw her en?
gagement mentioned in the gossip ot a news?
paper. The writer knows this to be true."
-The Baltimore Bub says : "The movement
.against the use of egg-nog, wines and other
'Intoxicating liquors during the Christmas and
New Year's holidays, ia so earnest that its ad
Vocatea are encouraged to hope for more lu
thisi-direction now- than ever bet?re. The
city temperance convention and the Yonng
Man's Christian Association have Issued a dr?
ooler addressed to the pastors of all denomina?
tions on the subject, as follows : 'Yon are re
epectfully but-earnestly requested to call.the
attention of your congregation on Sunday
next to the pernicious practice of setting out
egg-negg, wine, and other liquors during the
.Christmas and New Year's holidays, more es?
pecially before the young, and of tempting
and en aclu g them to partake thereof. Urge
them to discountenance this custom in every
way possible, by all that ls sacred in religion,
orto the moral well-being of the community,
and especially by au that ls sacred to the best
Interests of ?be rising generation.' "
-The coming marriage of Mustapha Pasha's
daughter to Kballl-Sherlf Pasha ls throwing
Turkish society in a flutter. Four splendid
carriages have beeb' s?nt from Paris to com
Flete the number of the bride's equipage.
Thirty gorgeous robes are being made by
fashionable modistes. The wedding veil, of
Brussels laos, has cost eight hundred pounds
sterling. Beside the Jewels presented by the
bridegroom, the princess will wear on the day
of her marriage a. tiara and necklace of dia?
monds presented by ber ? a i h e r. These costly
gifts have been purchased for twenty thous?
and pounds sterling. So that the young lady
will be right royally apparelled j and lt Isa
satisfaction to think these valuables are her
own: she cannot be deprived of them by her
hnstsmd or by any other person, the Turkish
law being carelul to secure a wife's property.
Two of her private apartments bav? been fur
niched by a Parisian upholsterer at a cost of
two thousantf eight hundred pounds sterling,
not including clocks, vases, lamps, and other
works of art and ornament.
-Representative McIntyre, of Georgia, has
Introduced into the House a bill to refund the
cotton tax, whloh, li passed, he says, will dis*
comfit the speculators who have bought up the
colton clsJme In such quantities. His propo?
rtion ls that the United States shall Issue
thirty-year five per cent, gold bonds, to be
delivered to the Governors or the authorized
agents of the States and Territories In amounts
equaling the amounts received from said
States from the tax on cotton. The States are
to return the amount so received by them to
the partlos who actually paid the tax, and
where this ls linpracticable, the money shall
be disposed of In suoh manner as the several
Legislatures may by law dire ct. The aotnal
amount received by the government on ac?
count of this tax was $68,072,388 7?, of whloh
Maryland paid $51,349 62. Georgia beads the
Hst with $11,897,194 93. The bill of Mr. McIn?
tyre, with the bill on the same subject Intro?
duced by Mr. McKee, ol Mlsslanlppl, some
months since, were before the ways and
means committee to-day. No report will be
made until after the holidays.
-Mr. Beecher, in his last "Lecture Boom
talk-," gave some hints In regard to praying
whloh were, as usual, pungent and original,
and provoked considerable discussion among
the audience. He began by reading a note
from a music teacher in tbe oil region desiring
the prayers ol the Plymouth congregation,
and likening praying to an attempt to send a
telegram without understanding the art of
telegraphing. Mr. Beecher seemed struck by
this comparison, and elaborated lt at length.
He remarked : "I think myself a great deal of
praying ls like a person drumming ona tele?
graph instrument without the least idea of
what they are doing, but even at that there
la somebody at the other end who knows that
somebody is trying to do Bometblog." He
then continued al length explaining the nature
and Importance of prayer, holding lhat we
should pray always and for ourselves, and
those who prayed oftenest were the least
sceptical as to their prayers being answered."
One of the brothers present differed with Mr.
Beeoher on this point, and the latter respond?
ed with one of his characteristic metaphors,
comparing the Divine Love lo an immense
brewery at Stratford-on-Avon, whence one
could not draw a single glass without being
deluged from bead to foot with beer. This
appeared to satisfy the demurring brother,
and he snbsidod.
?2T~ In accordance with our annual cus?
tom, there will be no Issue ol THU NEWS
on Thursday, the day after Christmas. An?
nouncements intended for that day should,
therefore, be Inserted in to morrow's paper.

The pleasant pressure of holiday adver-1
Using noon oar columns compels as, this

three ordinary size books. We shall print a j
large extra, edition to supply the great de-1 |

About this time of year the malady above I ?
aamed may be expected In yoong persons. I <
[)ld people are exempt. Anatomists tell os h
:hat with advancing years the bones be- j t
;ome more and more solid. The tissues (
which enclose the particles of phosphate of j <
lime thin away, until at length extreme old 1i
ige mantfests Itself in bones aa easily broken \
as ?t pipe stem. As ls meet, the nearer the 11
grave the more earthy we become. 11
Not so with yontb, whose osseous frame I j
work, elaatlo as a wlllow-wand, and full of 11
?weet rich red blood, forms one continuous I ]
conduit for the carre?te of joy. A brad-awl i
might penetrate an old man's bones-a ,
sentiment never. Its fine edge, dolled and i
bloated by contact with the hoary Incrusta- i
tiona, shows ngly and awry as a cheap knife J (
misused c pon an oaken spoke. But into a j i
boy's soft bones an emotion penetrates more j i
quickly than the sharpened blade of Sheffield 11
into the tender breast of the frost-mellowed I <
bird of the season-the ineffable turkey. 11
Christmas, jovial old soul that he ls, bath j,

cracker, the dispenser of wares of every
kind? lia verity it ls ever so. From afar
he aceuloth the permeable lads and lasses,
and into their anopposing bones leapetb vi- ,'
olently-straight from the shop windows. 11
For all his broad honest fice, this Gray-1 ?
beard is a keener. He discerneth the small i
boy, and he goeth fer him two weeks ahead I <
or time. The little girl ia his prey. Lovely I
old wolf that he is, he lieth in wait for her (
In grandma's bed and devoareth her-yea, 1
gobbleth her clean up. Surface work en- (
treateth him not-he mast down deep Into J1
the very marrow of these Innocents, and lo 1 j !
he abldeth there many days. I (
Parent atuterus, full well with him ac-11
quaint, eyeth him In the distance with 11
wrath. Farens mnst need his pocket ope, I i

Policy 8 hopa.
Th_e license bill before the City Council
propos?e to license "raffles, drawings
"or prize awards." What does this propo?
sition mean? It cannot mean that honora?
ble and intelligent gentlemen, elected to
administer the government of this city, are
ignorant of the State Constitution and
laws. Of course they know that the con?
stitution (Article H, Section 2,) prohibits
"lotteries and the Bale of lottery tickets for
"any purpose whatever;" and they know,
-?o, that the law provides (Revised Statutes,
Chapter 135, Section 1,) that keepers of
lottery establishments, under whatever
name, shall, npon conviction, forfeit one
thousand dollars, and shall be committed to
jail for twelve montos. Nor can it be sap
posed that they expect, or intend, by their
license, to nullify the 'State law. For an Al?
derman muse know that, though a lottery
vender should have his wheel pasted all
over min city licenses, he is still liable to
the extreme penalty of the statute. It can?
not ?e that they design an evasion of the
law by the use of the terms, "Baffles, Prize
"awards." They are too high-minded for
that-besides, the law is sufficiently ex?
plicit to cover ali the classes of schemes
specified in their bill.
? Bat the law is a dead letter 1 Not quite.
It is true there exist In this city many lot?
tery establishments, and they have been suf?
fered to go on for a time filching from the
pockets of the ignorant and wretched poor
their hard-earned pennies; encouraging
idleness by holding oat the hope of gain
without labor, and fostering crime by stim?
ulating disorders of the passions. But
there is a waking up of public sentiment to
the magnitude of this evil. The people see
that lottery gambling is corrupting and im?
poverishing the city, and they are asking
the question, How can it be suppressed T
Have the committee of Council, without
observing this movement of the public
mind, said to themselves, these lotteries
proceed with Impunity-they are bring?
ing in money to their operators-we'll
enter Into leagne with them-we'll recognize
them by a license, and receive our share of
the spoils, and so replenish our exhausted
treasury? This supposition cannot for a
moment be entertained. Our Aldermen are
too wise not to sae that for a city to at?
tempt to increase its revenues by joining
hands with its Impoverishers is to feed upon
its own vitals. j
What, then, can this proposition mean ?
We must, In charity, conclude that it was
put forth by the committee for the parp?se
of calling oat the protest of those who wish I
well to the city, and so of helping to form a
public sentiment which will make the law
mighty to suppress this evil.
Presuming this to have been their design, I
FHB NEWS enters its solomo protest against
the lottery license. I
Judge Orr ls a lucky mao. It was bis lot
to be a distinguished member of the Seces
sion Convention, and the fae simile of his I
oold signature to the original document I
langs lo THE NEWS office as an encourage-1
nent to like evil-doers. Next he appeared I
is a full-blown Confederate colonel, ready I
k> charge Innumerable batteries-before
.here were any hostile batteries to be I
charged. Soon after, he made bis bow aa a I
member of the Confederate Congress, lo I
which position he remained until the final
imash-np. After the war he was elected I
Governor of South Carolina, and signalized I
limaeli by bis bitter opposition to the Four-1
?eenth Constitutional amendment. When I
;he game of reconstruction began be I
changed sides, joined the Radicals, and I
iras elected, later on, a circuit judge. It I
ffoa bis choice to oppose the Reform move
nent of 1870, and he did more to defeat it I
-han any other man in the State. Last
rear he made common cause with the Bolt- j
og Republicans, who were routed at the I
[Mila. But whatever went down Mr. Orr I
?vent up, and he now finds himself appoint
sd the representative of the United States I
at the Court of BL Petersburg. He is the
third Sooth Carolinian who hos held that
office, and the first South Oarolinian or bis
stamp who bas filled so Important a posi-1
tion. Thank goodness I he ls a man of
brain; in that particular be will do the I
sountry no discredit. Had Governor Orr
been leas shrewd and less far-sighted, he
might have been a better friend of bis peo
pie. Lucky Minister Orr I
THE CHRISTMAS ODE of " Anonyma," I
Irnich will be printed to-morrow, ls one of
the best pieces of original poetry contri
bated to THE NEWS in several years.
A Binn who Cannot be Kept Down.
Among the most striking careers of the I
times has been that of Judah P. Benjamin, I
who long represented Louisiana in the United I
States Senate, subsequently became the lead-1
lng member of the Confederate Cabinet, and I
after the close of the war removed his res!
dence to London. He procured naturalization I
In England, and, upon complying with the re-1
julslte conditions, began practice as a barris?
ter In the Westminster and Lincoln's Inn
Dourta. His progress has been so rapid that, I
although he haB only been at the English bar I
tve or alx years, he has received the honor of I
" Queen's Counsel " and assumed the iradi-1
tlonal "Bilk gown," thuB taking his plaoel
among the upper grade ot barristers. It ls j
now Intimated lu some of the English papers
that Mr. Benjamin is among the leremost In j
the HBO of those who are likely to be raised I
to the bench within the next few years. It
would be curious to see an ex-United States I
Senator, and an ex-Oonlederate Secretary of
state, sitting beside Slr A. Cockburn on the
Queen's Bench, with patched wig and ermined
gown. Mr. Benjamin ls a man ol brilliant
ability as an advocate, and was surpassed by
very few as an orator when he sat in our na
tlonal councils; his speech on retiring from
the Senate, Just before the war, was one ol
thrilling eloquence, not soon to be forgotten
by those who heard lt. He is of Jewish ex?
traction, and If promoted to the English
bench, will be the first of that faith to occupy
a high Judicial position there. Were he to I
become Lord Chief-Justice, and Mr. DlBrae? I
again Premier, the alugular spectacle would
be exhibited of Jewish heads ot the English
administration and the English law.
