young hearts will be a snffioient inducement
to those interested in the schools to make this
an affair that will live in the minds of the pu
pila until the end of time, at a pleasant
Anoof Holiday Ghth. We lave a a word
to say about this matter to the readers of our
journal. To obtain a gift which shall be both
instructive and ainusiug for the little fulks,
requires but a trifling amount of thought for the
juuioious parent; but what will most please
wifo, daughter or female friend, Is, perhaps, a
question requiring more reflootion and, judg
ment. A "Solving Machine," by whioh we
mean, of conrse, one worthy of the name, and
whioh retlly, by its perfect operation, dis

gentleman be he husband, father or friend
who presents such an instrument to a lady for
a Christmas or New Tear's gift, In our humble
opinion, Bestows a souvenir at onoe fascinat
ing in the extreme, useful and ornamental;
for a prettier piece of furniture for a lady's
boudoir, than a mahogany or black-walnut
cabinet, disclosing when opened an instru
ment so indispensable, can hardly be found.
And now, reader of ours, if your taste coin
cides with us as to the most appropriate and
acceptable, as well as elegant, gift to your
lady friend at this time, we will state, for
your information, as to where suoh an instru
ment may bo had, that we, some months
since, after personal examination of the dif
ferent sewing machines now before the public,
decided upon and obtained for our family use
one of Messrs. I add, Webstar & Co.'s elegant
cabinet machines, and have had it in almost
constant use si see its reception. We have be
fore, and over our own signature, commended
this machine to public notice, believing that

would never arrive. He did not desire a united South
uur a united North; he belonged to a party in oppo

be overwhelmed by tbe North, which the next census

NhW York, December 22. The Herald
publishes a report of Senator Crittenden's speech at
the conlcence ol tlio UppositloulslB, held atWaah
iuotou Tuesday nlgbi.
Mr. Crittenden referred io tbe failure of the House
to organize. Tho protracted tlelav present a spec
tacle painful to tbe country. He did 'otlpretend to
say whole the reproach lies. Tbe p isitlon of the so
called Americnu members has been embarrassing;
tbey have naruestly sought the line of duty. II
seemed to bltu that know lug nothing ef tbe purposes,
of the two leading ptrtloa of tbe Honee, tbey did
wisely nominate their own ni iu and adhere to that
nomination. It is a question whether they shall
continue to do so to the end of tbe contest. He felt
that ground which is good to stand on, is good to fall
011, But, (he continued,) looking away from the
contest and abroad over the country, we find much
to distress every true patriot.
In the present state of the public mind t confess
that never before In my life did 1 feel such anxiety
for the fate of onr government. I hare never believed
It possible that 1 could bring my mlud to tbe delib
