thathebas an eye both to the merits nnd theshort
comings, of nil, to that his gifts aro distributed
with a discriminating hand.
As the provider for a numerous family, laden
with weighty cares, one would naturally wipposc
that his courage would often fail him : but he nev
ertheless makes his arrangements with consum
mate tkill, and seldom overlooks those who arj
deserving of his smiles. His thoughtful caro
extends to every member of tho family. Tho
young wife, oppressed with new cares and respon
sibilities, receives romeltubstantial token of his
favor, which lightens her labor and fills her heart
wilhacratcful remembrance of his kindness. Tho
children aro especially . noticed by tho tutelary
saint, nnd his praUcs aro chanted in youthful
chorus by theso happy recipients of benefits from
his fatherly hand.
It is well, that, in our land, be makes his visits
so promptly on the return of each Christmas eve ;
for his appearance causes new joy to spring up in
tho youthful heart, and even smoothes the wrinkles

in the joyous fostivitios of tho occasion, tho youth

Wo notice that our citizens aro not unmindful of
theso considerations, in their endeavors to sccuro

Tin- Other Side of the- "Patent
Ijikt'' liirilloii I'rosiiiectH of Uood
Recr Xcxt Summer.
From tho N. Y. World.
Notwithstanding the colli, clear atmos
phere of winter has for a season decreased
the demand for lager drinkers to ascertain
the cause of the inferiority of that hcverago
last summer, and to Judge of the jirwpccts of
the future. The lxior lager was 111 many in-
ptances palmed ofl'ttpon a complaining public
is acknowledged. Hits id certainly a fact
calculated to cause the deepest anxiety
among many classes of our citizens; for
lager, hy its devotees, is deemed the very
nectar of the hencliccnt gods, making men
licaltliv, wealthy, and wise :" and whoever
would tamper with it, to destroy its flavor
nnd qualitva ml to introduce pernicious in
gredients into its composition, must merit
ami receive tlicir ilirest imprecations, it
makes men hcalthv. thev sav. for it is 1111-
j - - . - --j j
deniably productive of a clear conscience,
an iinoh'-trtictcd digestion, and a plum) and
weighty corjKiration ; it assists to wealth, for
it is the cheapest drink that is sold; it
makes men wise, for it docs not "steal away
thehrains," hut rather produces quiet, cheer
fulness, and calm reflection.
why i..(ii:rt was mo iast summer,.
Probably the true explanation of the de
terioration of lager is the fact that sonic
brewers have not tneil good or enough malt
in brewing tlicir liecr. Tho brewers were
obliged to pay very high prices for malt,
which had advanced very materially last
summer over the old prices, and which was
of an inferior quality, and in the desire for
a rapid accumulation of wealth they raised
their charges for beer and endeavored by
using more than the proper amount of water
to make their malt iro further than it would
stand. The result was that their beer was
inferior in quality, for good lager cannot be
made by any process without a sufficient
quantity of malt.
Tin: oTin:it Finn of the "rATiixT lager"
This explanation is plausible enough; but
some have been disposed lo attribute bad
lager to the use of a new patent recently
introduced and employed by a Humlier of
our best brewers, by which lager ia brewed
inure cheaply and more expiditiously than
by the old method. In some few saloons
placards have been posted with the words,
"No patent Iagor sold hero," and paragraphs
have gone the rounds of the newspapers
charging that it is unhealthy, unpalatable,
and productive of various diseases. Those
brewers who aro using the patent complain
of these charges, and ask that "facts be sub
mitted to a candid world." They say that
it is very easily and very conclusively shown
that tliOf-c parties who had bad lager wero
not the parties who had "patentbecr." While
the beer was very generally bad only a few
brewers in this city had the .patent, and
therefore even those people who condemn
the patent must concedothat the greater part
of the bad beer sold must have been due to
some other cause, ami must have been
brewed by thos-c who had not tho patent
Hut those who had bad beer found it very
convenient to saddle the patient with it. It
is. admitted, however, that some who had the
patent had bad beer, for the reason that they
iiad not used enough malt. It is generally
the case that about as bad lecr as can be
found is got at the places which displav the
placard. " No Patent lleer." The holders
of the patent challenge Wr drinkers tola
test of their product, and they say thev 4frc
willing to allow anyjiibulous anil ponderous.
Dutchman of the most experienced and cul
tivated taste, to compare their beer with that
produced hv other brewers, without 1eing
told which is the one or the other, and they 1
feel confident that their beer will be found
sujwior by any lieer ofl'crcd to the public A
connoisseur in lager was asked by us to state
the beer that ho considered bad, and none
of tboc dealers whom he mentioned as hav
ing poor lager had the patent process. They
claim that their method is efficient anil
harmless. They claim that it makes at least
as good lager as is offered to the public, and
that it makes it much cheaper; that it docs
not change or introduce any new ingredients,
but is simply a more purfect method of con
verting the malt into saccharine, nnd ex
tracting the hop. There is always an outcry
against any new invention, and even the
sewing machine and the mowing machine
did not escape severe aspersion ami ridicule;
but those who use this patent invariably
praise it, and say that it produces at least a's
good lieer as is produced by the usual pro
cess. Tho holders of the patent say that the
outcry against "lager" is started "by those
brcwurs who desire to purchase the privi
lege of the patent cheaper than it is now of
fered for tne inventor, knowing its value,
holds its privilege at a high price.
If out of this discussion the public ret

able that, during the coming season-brewers
will exhibit less cupidity in the use of malt,
tiood lager nmt lie had though the heavens
fall. It lias become a favorite drink even
among the Americans and Irish, and it is
claimed for it that it is the enemy of rum,
whisky and brandy ; that it saves us from
street quarrels from riot, from crime, from
boatlv and violent drunkenness, nnd that if
it thnll become our national drink, the genial
disposition, the unrullled temper, and the
serene demeanor of the Dutchman will be
come our national character. Its cheapness
lias leon one important cauo of its rapid in
troduction as a favorite drink, and anything
that lessens its cost 'without deteriorating its
qw'y JS of course, to be commenced. Let
this subject be carefully considered ; let the

The National Banks. Many enquiries hav
ing been made as to tho consequences of a failure
of any ono man of the Nntional Banks, author
ized by tho Government, and tlicir being some
uneasiness felt at tho report of tho failuro of four
of them in the North, wo copy tho following from
tho "commercial" of the New Orleans iVesrint,
which explains tho wholo question :
The failure of four National Banks at tho North
to redeem their circulation in U. S. treasury notes
has created a petty panio among sotno holders of
this currency. Yesterday, wo aro informed, at
least, of tho city markets, it was refused by tho
butchers. Under theso circumstances, and in or
der to prevent ill-informed holders from selling
nt a discount, tho First National Bank promptly
gavo notice, through the press, that it was ready
to redeem all National Dank issues at its coun
ter, at par, in U. S. treasury notes. In tho mean
time, some raonoy dealers were exchanging city
treasury notes for them at par, and all tho banks
and dealers were receiving them on deposit, and
in some cases, exchanging Legal tender notes for
them, to accommodato timid holders.
It is evident that tho public do not appreciate
tho fulness in tho provisions of tho National
Banking Law to save the holders of the bank cir
culation from loss. In tho first instance, the bank
is compelled to deposit with tho comptroller of
the currency United States Bonds to tho amount
of at least one third of its capital. The comptroller
then issues to the banks, in circulating notes,
ninety per cent of the market valuo of the se
curities deposited but in no case moro than par
reserving the ten per cent as a margin for the
protection, not of tho holders of the notes, but of
the Government, which, tn any rcent, is bound to
pay tho full face of the notes in lawful money of
the United States; that is, if the securities depos
ited were suddenly to become valueless, tho Gov
ernment would bo tho loser, not tho noto holder.
The proceedings in tho caie of a bank failure
are prompt and simple. The holder of the bank's
bills presents them at the counter for redemption
in lawful money. It is refused. The holdcrthen
protests them formally, and the notary sends the
protest to the Controller of tho Currency. The
Controller makes, further investigation into tho
fact, and on being sa sfltd tho failure, is
bound, within thirty days thereafter, to declare
the deposited securities forfeited to the Govern
ment, Thereupon tho Secretary of 'the Trcunry
1 required to direct tho holders of the notes of
the broken bank to present them at the United
States Treasury at .Washington, for payment.
when they will bo paid in lawfal money of the
United States. There aro other provisions in the
law to guard tho Government against essential
loss, hut, standing in tho position of endorser of
thenolei, the Government is bound to pay them
in lawful money, whatever maybe therosultto

The Imports! of J rent Itrltnin.

A hi 1.1, has been brought up in tho North
Carolina Legislature, providing relief
for the holders of State bond, in con

executed, afterwards, as a matter of conveni
ence or accident; and although in the name
and under the authority of the "Confeder
ate States," do, not f com to be embraced in,
the ordinance of the Convention repudiating
the war debt. Holders of these bonds, it is
alleged, got them in good faith, and on tho
same footing that all bonds wcro issued be
fore the war, and they now ask that no dis
tinction be made between theso claics of the
old debt, and that new bonds bo issued in
tho place of the defective ones.

In the United States Supreme Court to
day, pending; tho case on exports, A. H.
.Garland, or Ark., asked to be allowed to
practic as a counsellor.
Hon. Rcverdy Johnson delivered an ar
gument against the constitutionality of the
Congrerisional test oath. There being no
antecedent government to our own, it is
necessary to look into the Constitution itself
to sec what powers wcro originally confer
red upon Congress.
This being stated, Congress is authorized
to pass all necessary and proper laws to carry
them into cflect.
' I 'I. run .Atvnvd n rt in I.n i,nnclTl,,l,i,n.t mt.
as to eflect the object they arc designed to
accompusn. it is tne uuiy 01 tno court to
ascertain what this is, and then determine
y nether tho legislation will defeat or secure
. no end.
A restriction to the class of powers is that
Congress shall pass no export, facts, law or
bill of attainder.
The meaning of this is well understood
to be that any lawrWhich will make
an act a crime which wtS not a crime wlien
the act was committed, but the law of I8C5
docs not punish, in point of fact, because it
precludes tho petitioner from the exercise"
of all lawful occupations, and strikes at a
profession in which his hopes and ambition
and support of himself and family arc in
volved. Tho punishment is severe, cruel
and unexampled. It subjects hi.n to all the
obligations of the Constitution, while it
takes from him all its advantages.
The oricinal id of 1862 was not made
applicable to attorneys in the courts of the
Lnited States. Three years were sufficient
to elapse when somo one in Congress who
may have been particularly sensitive, intro
duced a bill applying the provisions of the
law to practicing. The bill was submitted
to the Judiciary Committee, and by a unan
imous vote was rejected.It afterwards re
ceived the Mnction of tho Senate.
It was passed for the purpose of excluding
the petitioner and all others similarly sit
uated to punish by eaxludihg them from tho
United states uourts. it was not for con
duct subsequent, but antecedent to the pas
sago of the statute. This act comes within
clear meaning of the ciausc in the constitu
tion, that Congress shall pass no trparte faeto
law or bill of attainder. No right can be
taken away by law, unless the accused shall
be first convicted of the offense charged, and
theso right include the holdine of olhcc of
emolument And trust. Such laws as that of
1865, were penal statutes. Tho Attorney
General had argued last Friday, that tho ad
mission to practice in the courts is not legal,
but is created by" the law, and therefore may
be regulated by law, given or taken away,
but it is not true that Congress can by law
prohibit the appearance of councilors in the
court of the United E talcs.
