In conformity with the time-honored Southern custom, Qhristma will be ob served bs a holiday at the office of the Appeal, and our next paper will be Issued on Sunday morning. A SIX EST Y. President Johnson has rendered the Christmas festival of 1S63 raenfl.Tle to the people of the United States by the proclamation of pardon ana amnesty which the readers of the Appeal will find in cur telegraphic columns this morning. Tardy though many will re gard It, it will ba none the less acceptable to our people, and will heighten in their esteem a President who, amid the most stormy period of the Republic's history, has Illustrated tho highost patriotism, and sunk the partisan and the politician in the statesman, only intent upon the oause of his country. This amncBty-virtualiy closes the r belllon, sts aside pending proceeding for treason against Mr. Davis anrf others, lately high ja authority in-, tho Confede rate Government, and r-events the pos Blbil!tyfcI;tUe malevolent prosecutions -With wh'Iclf "onr pub.c men ha7e ben threatened bjv&e Radical leaders. iuSD save lh9 President. Inexorably -comes thefiarff1" waer soma IPIs welcome. JHiefe the well laden with fioSd things wheio cur accounts are easily balanced, with a eur plus in our favor, where the biazingfire gives good cheer where the hearth surrounded with friendly greetings is where Jove, and friendship, and good-fel lowsbip meet in the embrace of family reunion, it i3 the season of the year most to be enjoyed and to be prized. We hope this is the case with the great majority of the readers of the Appeal. But there are 'some we may say many who can not class themselves thus. How many aro there who are destitute? Or, If not de titute, bow many can not dispense the usual oharitioa .of the season? How many can not fill tho stocking? How many cau not expect Kris Kringle to de scend thrdugbtthe chimney to their man tei .' Alas : now many can not warm their friends hew many can not cheer their boards with toe accustomed turkey how many cau not protecttheir house hold from tho inclemency of the season, ' as they have been wont to do In times past? It is tho Birthday of our Saviour, Reader ! did you never retlct that this birthday of the most glorious of earth's born occurred at the season most uu pro pitious and inclement, thu3 calling upon us all to make summer sunshine in the heart and to light up our households with gladness at a season when the storms of winter, tho clouds of snow, and the freezing winds of December beat most fiercely against our casements ? Nor is this alt. Wc are called upon at (his time, by the most Bicred appeals, to liston to tha cry of the orphan, to hear the appeel of the distressed, to heed the petition of tho poor, and to give of our surplus to those who have failed to realize the comforts which we ourselves enjoy. The voice of the orphan is not loud, like that of the demsgoguo. Tho cry of the widow does not reach our earp, as the wall of those who are overwhelmed Jn Nature's grandest shocks. Yet these are tho commonest forms of human sor row. They come to us In our daily walks. Tujiy appeal to us in every by-path of our existence. No man can overlook them. Much less citf he, with plothorlo puree pass them by, without doing injus tice to his own conscience. Our orphan charities call uponut in language common to all the earth. Whethor they be Prot extant, or Catholic, we are bound to re gard them. Tho Orphans' Fair, on Main street, Is appropriately open to the silent gifts of the true Christian, whether he bo a Catholic, a Churchman, or a Protest ant. The Lath Orphan Asyhjn calls upon us for relief. Innumerable pri vate contributions may be given to relievo distress, to soothe sor row, to chasten aflltoiion and to carry Joy to households that need the solace of a friend and the assistance of oco of Christ's true disciples. Lst us forget our selves in the observance of Euah an anni versary. Iiet us remembir that we are of Christ's fold, and that many of this fold need our brotherly aid. Let us be Christians and brothers at this holy eea bon. May all tho readers of the Appeal en Joy a merry Christmas. Judge Ddrell, of New Orleans, on Monday, gavo an important ruling rela tive to tho charges made by the assignee In Ir&nbtuptcy. Tho decision was given in the case of Andrew McQuirk, ask- i ig to be discharged, but opposed by the assignee, on. the ground that the costs ofj Jiia suit were not all paid. Tha Juage ruled that a bankrupt Is only required to deposit at the commencement of tho suit -3iS3fcpunt specified by law. and that expiration of the fctaintory ntuiea to a discharge, the as- al and clerks tn r the estates aurrendired ng three other bankrupts ea.

New York, Dccember21.-Geu. Grant a reported to have said to Congressmen yesterday, with whom he had an inter view on the subsidies to tho Pacific rail road, that no matter what may bo said about the prospective benefit wo are to derivo from theso roads, it Is too long to wait, and we should make the best use of our present resources, without increas ing tho burden of our debt by incurring xpensive risks which are hszardnu. The Congressmen who were at'the inter view wero astonished at the frankness with which the General expressed his views, whilo they all promised him their Bupport. The Gencrai at tho same tims gavo his opinion that therehou!d be an extra session of the Foitioth Congress. The existenco of the present Congress in for so short a time that there will bo just barely time to pass the upprorriation bills, and it is doubtful whether tho great question of cur finan ces can be properly cared for. Cl. Wiucoop, in an pddreos to tho American Geographical Society, last night, defended the Indian Bureau against certain charges made against it, and said : "As tho Bureau exists at pres ent I do not know how it cin bo bettered. I have failed to sea so far how tho De partment of the Intsilo-, or the officers of tha Indian Bureau, have been to blame for any of our Indiau troubles. Let the sympathies of the peoplo of this ciuntry ba for the Indian, as they have been for the African, and irrefpsctivo of Indian Bureau and Congress, there will bo such n radical change in the condition of the Indian as will he of incredible benefit to him in the future, and consequently to our whole country." A report was current last night that tho magnntc-8 of tno New York Central and Erie railroads had formed an alli ance, but nothing has been made public. It is stated that the bais of the snttle meut is to ba the withdrawal of all the Injunctions, and that a combined effort Is to be made to legalize the scrip divi dend of the Central road in the Legisla ture.
