Wednesday Morning, Deo. 20.1867.
'Whatever muy be tue lowering aa?
ltet of the firmament, earthly or
heavenly, Christmas day brings with
lt * burst of sunshine for those who
hawe yet to tread the rough and
Aorny paths of life. Christmas day
2? peculiarly the children's holiday,
?nd he who has no sympathy with
tfcksir innocent enjoyment must be de?
void of all kindly emotions, or those
feelings which refine and elevate
kumau nature. Lifo is too short and
Sha days of childhood too fleeting to
.curtail the enjoyment of the little
'raes. Smiling faces, kind words,
suitable juvenile gifts, will make
home happy, and that happiness will
. "foe transfused throughout the whole
Soxnily circle. Let parents and elder
?embers of their families do all in
.ftie?r power to promote this family
O? couree, at many a hearth-stone
? tue or moro places will be vacant in
the family circle; but while we may
regret the death or temporary ab
-eenco of tho missing occupante of the
- ?meant chairs around the Christmas
dinner-table, we should not throw a
?gloom over the happiness of those
still left us, by vain repinings or
jfcuifleas grief; the present is all tin it
ve can call our own; it is our duty,
'therefore, to contribute as much os
.Sea in onr power to the happiness of ,
ettxeis. And in this connection we ,
.-jnay repeat from Scripture, tho poor i

Terrible Su rte ring.
The New Orleans Times gives an
?jiiuming report of the condition of
Uno m groes in Louisiana, and parti?
cularly in the Parishes overflowed by
the breach in the levee at Point
<3onpe. Thirteen Parishes havo be?
come totally unproductive by the
fereach, and all classes of the popula?
tion arc in a state of severe privation.
Fovcrtj' is scarcely the unme for the
deplorable condition of the people of
these Districts. But bad as is the
. condition among the planters and'
?white inhabitants, that of the negroes
*s ctill worse. Upward of 20,000 of
?IkjjE class are at tho point of starva
. ?tion, and almost entirely destitute of
'l!is necessaries of life. Unless 6omo
speedy relief comes, tho lamentable
consequences will be scarcely calcu
20,000 negroes starving! What a
.result of misguided philanthropy and
luise political teachings! Never ho
icre, no matter what the impoverish?
ed-condition of tho whites may have
beor., wcro negroes allowed to starve.
Bot it is useless now to discuss the
nonscs of tho wide-spread privation
*ihat exists, and must exist, through?
out the winter, especially among this
class of people. It is idle to do*
tounce, as wo see somo of our co
temporarics do, the unwise legislation
that bab produced theso sad results.
Thc moro important question is how
to eave theso people from perishing
Joe lack of food. It is not their fault
that they aro iu their present condi?
tion; and tho Government ought to
?ond swift relief to them, which they
sue bound to do by every obligation
of right as well as of humanity.

i THE BUREAU ra THIS STATS.-Tho
Charleston News, ot Tuesday, saya:
I The information received from
Washington that Gen. B. K. Scott,
1 the present Assistant Commissioner
Df the Bureau for this State, would
be retained in his position until fur?
ther orders, has given general plea?
sure to those who, though not friends
of the institution, desired to 300 it
conducted with judgment nnd sound
discretion. Since Qen. Scott us
8umed charge of tho Bureau he has
endeavored to control it for the bene?
fit ot those for whom it was de?
signed; nnd tho destitute poor of the
city, both white and bluck, have fre?
quently had cause to appreciate its
aid. Without entering upon a pany
geric of the Bureau, it is not, there?
fore, improper at this time to con?
sider some of its workings, and
award praise whero it is duo.
In August last it was decided to
discontinuo the distribution of ra?
tions to the destitute, and numbers
who were dependent on the Bureau
for a support wore thrown upon
their own resources. The compara?
tive failure of tho crops, which was
followed by a scarcity of money, in?
creased the destitution, especially
among the laboring classes; many of
whom were thrown out of employ?
ment. At his urgent solicitation,
however, Gen. Scott was allowed to
continuo tho bounty of the Bureau to
a limited extent. The number of
registered beneficiaries in this city
and the suburbs was about 500 whites
and 800 MACIC?. most of the former
being widows with large families.
It would have been harsh, indeed, tu
have at once deprived thia number
of destitute poor of their doily food,
and Gen. Scott applied to the Chid
Commissioner, Gen. Howard, foi
permission to establish soup houses
for the poor. This was grau ted, and
as soon as authority to purchase ne?
cessary meat is obtained, they will bc
opened and the bounty dispensed,
The Government at Washington hu;

special telegram to the Herald, whit
we printed yesterday, confirms tl
report of the murder of Gen. Lee

Grant waa opposed to the impeach

we believe the great body ~ pf the
people will agree with Gen. Grant in
