Charleston (S. C.) and Cincinnati—Let
Them Shake Hands.
We desire, earnestly, that daring 1860 ma;
be matured measures to compete a railroad
eonneotiou between the River Ohio and thi
tida-watera of Georgia and South Carolina
But a email interval of the route between Cin
cinnati and Charleston lacks the firm laid iron
bond of union. In 1835, active measure
were taken in this behalf, and to Sr. Drake,
formerly of this oity , was due the honor of tht
initial movement of the Charleston Railroad.
Ha thus referred to the sooial and political
advantages which it would confer:
"What is now the amount of personal inter
course between the million of American fellow-citizens
of North Carolina, South Caro
Una and Georgia, on the one hand, and Ken
tuck j, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, on the
other? Do they not live and die in igoorancooi
each other, and, perhaps with wrong opinion
and prejudices which the intercourse of a few
years would annihilate forever? Should this
work bo executed, the personal communication
between the North anil the South would in
stantly become unprecedented in the United
Statea. Louisville and Augusta would be
brought in social intercourse. Cincinnati and
Charleston be neighbors, and parties of plea
sure start from the banks of the Savannah for
those of the Ohio River. Tho people of the
two great valleys would, in summer, meet in
the intervening mountain region of North
Carolina and Tennessee, one of the most de
lightful climates of the United States, exchange
their opinions, compare their sentiments, and
blend their feeling. The North and South
would, in fact, shake hands with each other,
yield up their social and political hostility,
pledge themselves to common national in
terests, and part as friends and brethren."
Thousands and thousands of emigrants are
borne by half doten railroad routes to the
I ands of the far West, to settle and improve
theoj, to obtain and confer wealth, while
along tbe route we hope soon to have open,
stagnation chokes all enterprise. One of the
healthiest and loveliest part of the oounlry U
going behind, and the owners of the soil are
Icing in a year what would build the whole
route. Awake, and be doing, ye people of
tbe middle countiei of Kentuoky and of all
the intervening counties to tbe sea shore!
Twelfth Night—Old Christmas—Epiphany.
This is Christmas 0. S. It was an old
Knglish superstition that on Christmas eve the
"ten were always found on their knees, as in
an attitude of devotion, and that after the
change from old to new style they continued
to do this only on the eve of old Christmas
Hoy. Last night, no doubt, in town and
country, children ventured out on the door
steps to peep into the cow yards to see i!
Brindle and Suke or Pink were not on their
marrow bones.
Tbe medieval notion was that n ox and or,
ass wbioh were present at the nativity in thi
stable fell upon their knees in a suppliant pot
ture.
Hawthorns that budded heretofore on the
doy before Christmas, they say, blossom on
the 5th of January.
This twelfth night, closing the Chrietmt
holiday, revels used to set In by choloe in
the houses of the nobles, of a "lord of mil
rule," or "abbot of unreason," whose office
was "to make tbe rarest pastimes, to delight
the beholder.
Epiphany is a church festival, celebrated on
the sixth day of January, the twelfth day
aftor Christmas, in commomoration of the
appearaaoe of our Savior to the Magians or
philosophers of the East, who came to adoro
him with presents; or, as others maintain, to
commemorate the appearance of tbe star to
the Magians, or the manifestation of Christ to
the Gentiles. Jerome and Cbrysostom tako
the Epiphany to be. the day of oar Savior's
baptism, when a voloe from heaven declared,
"This is my beloved son, in whom I am well
pleased." Ths Greek fathers use the word for
the appearance of ChriBt in the world, the
sense in whioh Paul used the word. 1 Tim .
Death of a Pioneer.
A letter from Hamilton, Butler County,
dated January 4, says: "Anotherploneer has
fallen. Mother St. Clair is no more with us
on earth. She died yesterday at noon, of par
alysis of the brain, after very little apparent
sufferit.g. Her remains to-day look really
beautiful. I have not teen her look so young
add handsome for twenty yean."
This is written of the relio of Arthur St.
Clair, jr., son of the first Governor of tho
Voi'.h-.'.eslern Territory, Gen. ArthurSt. Clair,
rhe was in attendance in our city, we believe,
at she celebration of tbe 7th of April last, tho
anniversary of the first permanent settlement
oi Ohio. She was the wife of one of the first
Distriot Attorneys in Ibis city, and who resided
in too mansion on the lot the Methodist Book
Concern of this city nor ooenpies. On the site
of Fort Hamilton, built by her husband's father
in 17B1, was her last days spent, surrounded
with pioneer friends and beloved by a large
circle of friends.

A man named Joseph Cummins, while pass
ing along Broadway, night before last, on tbe
way to his residence in tbe upper part of that
thoroughfare, was met at the corner of Hunt
street by a couple of men who, as be assort?,
without any oause or provocation whatever,
knocked him down with t. slung-shot and bent
him very severely. His face is bruised and
swollen, and there is a contused wound on hi
bead that must have been caused by a heavy
blow from some blunt instrument. His body
is also considerably blackened and bruised
from the injuries he received. He knows of
no reason why be should have been so badly
abased, and from bis utatement the assauit
was a wanton outrage. This class of villiany
seems to be rapidly on the increase, and is tbo
more Berious because it has no remedy.

Mr. 8amaet Glenn will take a benetit, and he otters
a bill which will not fall to draw. It consists of a
new play entitled The Lost Ship, the farce of The

Oriental spectacle of BLcallEABD, andatretlo of

will never accomplish it.
National Theater. Jean Marie Daven
port enacted the character oftheloveable "Pauline,"
IastDight,at the National, to a good audier,co,and
her Impersonation seemed to thrill all who saw It
with delight. There is so much tenderness in her
tones, that the beautiful lines of Bulwer seemed to
catch a new meaning from her voice, and hit
creation another beauty from her representation,
This evenlog has been set apart for her bene
fit, and she oilers the admirable ptay of
Adbisnnp. the Actbess, together with tbedramat
Ized version of Dickens's story of The (Jbiokkt oi

" iilrienne" Is one of her greatest characters, and In
It she is unapproachable, in the quail I Im for which
she has become to famous, by any an lets In the
country, and we earnestly hope she may be greeted
with an audience that will fill the home to repletion.

egraphic dispatch was received by Shorifl
Asbbrook, yesterday, announcing that Gov
ernor Magoffin had pardoned William P.
Dwelly, oonvloted, at the last term of tho Cir
cuit Court, of burglariously entering the book
store of Mr. Laird, on Scott-street, and pur
loining goods to the value of about $300. The
neoeesary papers will arrive to-day, and hi
will be at onoe released.
A petition for the pardon of J. B. Ashford,
sentenoed for one year, is now, and anorheri
for the pardon of Thomas Finley, sentenoed
for three years and Bix months, will be In cir
culation. The pardoning power is a good one, but il
it is to be indiscriminately used, and burglars
of the basest oharaeter are, by it, to escape
the punishment due their crimes, we think it
bad better be abolished at onoe.
