Many of those who engage in cele

of the world do not know how

In former times the ocjaaion was ob
served by penance and fastings, and
all sorts of ioylias and melancholy

is more wisdom and appropriateness
in this Aattsr custom, Ur sorely all
1 should celebrate with gladness and
jay tho anniversary of Him who died
to reclaim a lost world.
The origin of many of our Christ-
f mas customs may be traced far back
X in time, long before the mighty Ca'sar

Saint Augustine preached Christian-
m ity to Kentish men. Many of the
m popular practices present evident re

of pagan worship. This similarity Is
accounted for by the fact of the reten
tion extensively of ancient forms as a
matter o.' expediency, it being dim
cult for the pioneers of Christianity
after the conversion of Britain, to
wean their converts from cherished
observances ami deep-rooted supersti
tions, and believing that the sacred
cause for which they labored would,
by thus making It acceptable to the
rude inttBders, be effectually pro
moted. A greater portion of tht
Christmas festivities are derived from
practices of the Roman saturnalia,
afterward fnter'i.ingled with tht
cere macks peculiar to the British
Druida, st the period of the winter
solstice, ar.ti sul -t ,,iipntlv herame in
corporated with the grim mythology
of the Pagans. In England, t
popular observances, belonging t
Christmas, are more especially de
rived from the worship of our Pagat
ancestors the burning of the Yule-
Ilog, and the banging of the mistletoe
bough. The burning the Yule-log
is an ancient Christmas ceremony
trarsniitted from the Piandiiavian
who at the feast of Jnie the period
of the winter-solstice kindle hug
fires in honor ol their chief divinity,
the iwU-nt Thor This custom, though
shorp of much of its pomp, glittei
and pageantry, is still a lavorite one
in various parts of England.
In tbo idea tiinrt the feudal time?
the bringing In and placing of tin
ponderous log on the spacious hearth,
inseparable from the association wit),
the roaring, rollicking, cld-fashioni c
fire, was the occasion for making tht
old baronial httli echo and re-echo with
the j yous shouts and the unbounded
hilarity of the assembled revelry.
The venerable wood was drawn it

wajiarer reverently saluting it with
uncovered head, and its apiearancv

rattle welcome, burn out old
feuds and bitterness, and mak

bowls that were quailed to th
conTusion of enimonty V It wa-
a custom to preserve the half-burn
log, alter having served itB purpose-
on Christmas eve, until the next annl
versary, when it was used to "ligh
the new block." Its preservation wa
popularly supposed to be an eflectua)
security to the house against fire. I
while the lojt was burning, a squint
ing or a bareloeiU'd person put in an
appearance, it was considered a very-
bad omen, and the presence of a fiat
looted woman was enough to fill th
breasts of the raerry-makers with

in Devonshire, and still mav be in
practice in some quarters on Christ
mas eve. The farmer, his family, and
his friends, after having Hint partakcD
of hot cakes and cider (dipping the
cakes in the liquor before eating), pre
ceed to the orchard, one of the party
learlng a hot cake sod cider as an
ofiering to the principal apple tree
Ctiatnbtr1!) Hxik of Jtayi says: "The
cake is formally deposited on the fork
of the tree, and the cider is thrown
over the latter, the men firing ofl guns
and pistols, and the women and girls
"Kar bl ue, eppit-s and pears enow,
Is -B lus, falls. Back tuii
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!"
A similar custom was once preva
lent in Norfolk, where a libation of
spiced ale was used for sprinkling the
orchard and medows.
The Druids held in great veneration
the' mistletoe as a sacred parasite, par
ticulariy when found growing on the
oak, the lavorite tree of their divinity
Tusane , a god corresponding to the
Phenician Baal, or the suu. The
growth ol tlie oak tree is now extreme-

Chintina-day. Tnus, when the an
nual holidays appear, they emanci
pate themselves and leave their mas
ters to perform the several labor per
taining to the farm and the household
in the best manner possible. During
Christmas week they resort to the
towns to spend their idle hours, and
having the wages of an entire year to
dispose of unchecked, they attire
themselves in the most gorgeous col
ors, pass their nights in dancing at
the public houses, and thoroughly en
joy their shortlived liberty till, satia

servitude and store up energies lor the
next annual tout.
The Mummers ever occupied a pro
minent place among the Christmas
amusements, years agone, and though
rapidly "going out" is still observed
in several sections of England. ' In
this branch of. revels, everything
serious is parodied, masters find exag
gerated counterfeits of themselves In
the make-up of servants, dignity lays'

of ridicule, and the order and deco
rum of society are purposely reversed.
This is another practice adopted from
the Roman Saturnalia.
Germany, the mother of therekr-
tbe cherished practices peculiar to
herself, in commemoration of the i
birth of Christ. With her, origi
nated the now common and accep
table mode of exhibiting the gifts
aiid the illuminated branches
of the Christmas tree. There
the eve is for the little ones, the hap
piest night in the entire year, for
they feast their inaaif on the magnifi
cence of the Christmp s tree, and re
joice in anticipation of the possession
of presents, fruits, candies, trinkets
so profusely displayed. The tree is
arranged by the elder members of the
household in one of the principal
rooms, and the children are huddled
in breathless expectation, in an ad
joining room. When all is ready, a
signal is given, the door is opened,
and the eager little ones, their bright
yes radiant, their Uttlo mouths
opened, and smiles dotting their
pretty faces with dimples, rush in de
lighted. After the gifts and the or
naments have hung a proper time,
they are distributed to the happy ju
veniles and the entertainment
progresses, and concludes much in the
same manner as with us. In Amer
ica, where many of the sfttlers ate
Germans, or of German origin, the
customs and ceremonials of the Fater
land are generally followed. Among
the Germans a scene of much solemn
ness usually follows the merriment.
The mothers take aside the daughte. s
and the fathers gather the sons by
themselves, and then the respective
heads of the family privately rebuke
the young ones for aught in their ea-
duct they may have dL-covered amiss,
or commend what has been observed
worthy of praise.
The custom of ushering in the day,
in Roman Catholic countries, and
wherever that ancient creed obtains,
by the celebration of three masses,
one at midnight, one at dawn and the
third in the morning, dates back to
the sixth century. The day is consid
ered in the dual character ot a holy
commemoration and a ioycus festival,
and is consequently celebrated by re
ligious exercises, cessation of business
Here in the United States, made up
as we are of elements from all parts of
the globe, the customs, games, tricks,
and merry-makings are, lor the most
part, but the reflex ol the practices
common to the old world. Da .New
England, where Puritan intolerance
in religion is giving way to Intolerance
in politics, the day is more generally
observed than formerly. The middle
and southern States have usually in
vested the day with the importance it
should ever merit, and there is little
fear that, as practical as we are, we
shall ever degenerate from a healthy,
happy, glorious appreciation ot the
merriest day in the year. The inttr-
chanee of presents, the bestowal of
"marks of esteem," of affection and ol
gratitude, is a universal practice
among us, and is generally popular
to the recipient, at least.
PARTIES OF Ull l l ll BE.
The Chicago Times, thorough- Dem
ocratic, says "that the real linp of
division between political parties in
this country is not indicated by the
terms 'republican' or 'democrat.'
rhese words have nearly eeaaed to
have any political significance, be-
vond the mere fact that they are
names conventionally employed in
peaking of certain organized societies
just as the Gdd Fellows, the Free
Masons, the Tammany society, etc ,

really separates public sentiment in
this country into two general and op
posite parts, as all tbeatcls now appa

the contest now proceeding is a con

with the prevailing administration ot
aflairs on the other. It is thestrugg
between an earnest aud daily increas
ing deire lor relorui, sod a selfish am
bition to keep thing as they are. It
is the world old battle between
viitue aud vice, honesty and dis
honesty. Persons calling themselves
" republicans" are found battling
on either side, an J so also are persons
calling themselves "Democrats." The
Tammany ring of fr.Tvernlng thieves
in New York includes persons from
both those organization. I he oppo
nents of Tarnmanj-isiu in that city
comprehend both. The remarkable
struggle in the Senate at Washington
which has been proceeding lor weeks

two great divisions of public senti
ment; between the reformers and the
anti-reformers ,and not between Demo
crats and Republicans; names which
seem to have wholly disappeared
from the controversy. Carl Sehurz,
Lyman Trumbull, Charles Sumner,
Iteuben E. Fenton, styled "Uepubli-
c.ins," standing mde by side with
Judge Travniaa, Mr. Bayard, Mr.
lilair, Mr. Stockton, styled "Demo
crats," contend against O. P. Mor
ton, John Sherman, Roscoe Conk
ling, and others, representing the
anti-relorm party. So, too, in Illinois;
a governor, calling himself a mem
ber ol the "Republican" party, boldly
take- ground against the political vice
of military aggression upon civil au
thority; boldly proclaims the tenets of
the great party or reform; and
is supported in his attitude by
persona culling themselves "Demo
crats," ai well as by persons calling
themselV' 'Republicans:" men of
diilerent party names, but of common
political sentiments and convictions.

My near Brother The admission of
the reporters, the lawyers, the judge-,
tke whole community, that in the
ku klux cases, now on trial in South
Carolina, the lowest class of our popu
lation furnishes the informers, oug.it
to awaken grave doubts in regard to
the truth of the charges now urged
against the most respectable, wealthy
and influential citizens of the State.
The people who have made these
astounding revelations in regard to
the social state ol the up-country, are
familiarly known ae "crackers,"
"ciay-eaters," and natives of "dark
corners." Most of them can neither
read nor write. Many of them are
the offspring of illicit connections.
Some of them affirm that they have
been led to expect better remunera
tion in their present line of business
than tey had ever had before com
fortable lodgings in the jail, and three
dollars a day during the time of their
incarceration. Now, lust suppose
that such an Inducement had been
oflered to the citizens of Five-Points,
to testify against the most respectable
citizens of New York ; suppose that
the informers had been backed by the
ward politicians, and the wealth and
power of tho national govern
mentand then judge for your
self what, after all, may ba the
real condition of South Carolina.
TERRORS OF KAJJie-AL, MtSRULK.
I am not in sympathy with the ku
klux klan. I do not know any of its
members; there are none in the sec
tion of the State where I reside. Yet
I must confess that I have long lelC
the need of some sort of legislation
and some justice, such as we have not
had in our Suite lor many years. Just
look at "the situation." The best cit
izens of the State are constantly de
spoiled. Their cotton is plundered at
night, and sold in the seed o "corner
shops." Their stock is butchered in
the woods. Their properly is assessed
above its market value, and is some
times taxed beyond what it produces,
or would sell for. Many persons have
evaded taxation by oflering their
plantations to the tax-gatherer. This
has been trequently done in Barnwell
SHAMELESS II II if II Mf
And crime goes unpunished. It is
not easv toarrest a criminal; it is har
der to keep him in jail ; harder still to
secure ha conviction, and Impossible
to keep the governor from pardoning
him. A voter is rarely allowed to
serve out his time in the penitentiary.
It matters not what he has done
whether he has broken into a house or
burned it down whether he has com
mitted a rape or a murder in any
event, his light to vote at the next
election most be secured by the exer
cise of executive clemency. Nay
more as all Wall street knows by
this time our State is largely un
der the control ol criminals. Many of
our highest offices are tilled by men
once of broken fortunes and broken
characters, but now invested with au
thority, clothed in purple and fine
linen, and taring sumptuously every
day. Our governor is a seedy doctor
from Ohio- now become a millionaire.
Our leading lobbyist is a jockey-rider
irom Jerome Park. The leader of the
senate is a convicted bribe-taker. The
leader of the house is a pardoned big
amist. On my way to the late St.
Louta convention 1, with other dele-
gatcs, saw a Judge ol the State em
bracing a prostitute in the public
cars, aud near him was a legislator en
gag d in like obsoene and shameless
dalliance. We were all thankful
when these wretched creatures lelt the
cars, with their women, at Granlte
ville. During the last year our cor
rupt State government has robbed an
impoverished people of more than
.;,ir0 per day, and the estimate must
be too low, lor it is founded on Gov
ernor Scott's message to the legisla
ture. You will, I hope, pardon me for
suggesting that such a state of so
ciety requires some relief quite differ
ent Irom that aflorded by the penal
laws of congress. When a vigilant
BMMBlttM has inflicted summary jus
tice, the ceurt ought to consider the
u .-Mile ease. It -h.iuld number not
only the scars, but the crimes of the
victim. It should be invested with a

of ociety where there is no law, aud
where men mu-t form temporary er

by "Richard Roe"; bat who has at
last turned upon his enemy, as even
a worm will turn against a crushing
foot, and who has ecourgeJ his op
pressor with lorly lasnes save one.
Does It become a great goverment, in
-uch an instance, to chastise "John
Doe," who looked in vain to it for
protection, and to let "Richard Roe"
go free? Yet this is precisely what
the United States government are
now doing In South Carolina? The
national officials are hunting down
and imprisoning the best citizens ol
the northern counties at the instance
of malefactors aud "sand billers,"
whose lives defy the laws, and who
woald not be believed, on their oaths,

BENEFICENT Kf KLCX ACT.
A lew days ago, I had an interview
with one ot the most eminent citizens
oi Spartanburg. He told me that his
sons had nd the county becanee an
order for their apprehension had been
iue.i. Just b.lore they 'went he
a.-ked them "whether they indeed bp-
longed to the ku-klux klan, or any
wilier soeret orgauizationr" rney rtv
pliid that they had been informed.
on time before, that the negroes of
: i.e county intended to rise against
the whites. The apprehension, I
may remark, was excited in the up-
country, by the tact that the governor
nan neen organizing and arming the
negroes, while he refused to arm any
. mpsM's composed of white men.
The youths further said, that they had
men joined an association oi mutual
ilelunse. Among other applicants,
thty bau received into their member
ship many "poor whites." who had
now, by some means, been led to de
nounce them. And so, although they
themselves had done nothing against
the peace ol the country, or the laws
of the State, they were compelled to
flee to escape incarceration. In short,
these worthy young men were driven
out of the Stale, just because they had
pledged themselves to fight if the ne
groes should undertake to burn the
houses, kill the men and ravish the
women of Spartanburg. Rev. Dr.
William Curtis informs me that this
unhappy county has bean decimated.

mules and hog within a stockade
fence at least fifteen feet high, and
overlooked by a window where two
double tarrek-d guns are always lean

only planter on the Fork (a settlement
of wealth v and cultivated persons.
below Columbia) who had been able
to preserve his stock ; and this he had
done by the aid of his palisades and
by the maintenance of ceaseless vigi

law had been obUged to keep alter
nate watch every night.
ANOTHER LOAOUE'S TEA PABTY.
bet such facts illustrate the chaotic
stateof society, out of which Ku-klux-ism
springs. I might add corrobora
tive notes from a city pastor's experi
ences. I have buried a peaceable
young man who had been beaten to
death by a mob organized lor the pur
pose of "clearing the whites out of the
streets of Charleston." I have seen
our citizens, black and white, going
armed to the polls, that they might
not be prevented from casting their
ballots for municipal officers; and the
bayonets of the United States) army
invoked and arrayed to guard the,
-sacred right of suflrage. I have seen
a tumultuoas rabble traversing
our streets with flaring torches
and barbarous yells and exe
crations, and as they went,
breaking windows, plundering shops,
and stoning bystanders, along their
line of march. I have seen an official
of the State discharge six or seven
shots at a press reporter; and although
the crime was commuted iust by the
guardhouse, tke criminal was not
arrested until his revolver was empty,
nor has he up to this moment been
dismissed from the office of trying
offenders against the laws of the Slate.
But let me add that I have never seen
the white people Interfere with a
negro at the ballot-box, or endeavor
to forbid or trammel, In any way, his
lawful right to vote. On the contrary,
it is a well established fact, universally
conceded, that the negroes have inler
;ced with such of their own race as
were not in favor of our oppressors.
Some they kept away by menaces,
and some they drove away by vio
lence from the Dolls. Never, until our
late city election, were the blacks of
Charleston at liberty to vote as they
pleased a privilege then, lor the first
time, secured to them by the presence
of United Slates soldiers, wno naa
been summoned there at the request
ol the white citizens. .
DELIGHTS OF RADICAL RULE.
I give you these particulars for what
they are worth. 1 do not pretend to
sa v that there may not have been out
rages on the other side, which have
come to my knowledge; for when
men's blood is up, they are prone to
exceed the bounds of wisdom and jus
tice. But it does seem to me that a
great government, possessed of un
restricted and unquestioned power.
ought not to take one side and that
the part of the aggressor in a case
like this. Nay, more, I cannot but
express my amazement that the use
of the United States forces, marshals
and courts, by the notorious corrupt
officials of the State government;
that the extension of the rigors of
martial law solely to the counties op
Do-ed to their administration; that
midnieht intrusions into chambers In
habited by trembling women, and
Sabbath investment of churches a
common custom in Spartanburg; that
captures ol youths scarce in ineir
teens, and of old men far ad
vanced into decrepitude, as midnight
marauders: that the despair of
whole counties who see their lawyers,
doctors, ministers their bast and
purest men swept into jails upon the
most preposterous charges, and these
urged by themost venal and depraved
of the people i am amazea, i say
that all this should not awaken the
grief and Indignation of every generous
heart at tne norm, u ye uiai uweu in
ceiled houses, is it nothing to you that
our homes are desolate; mat crimi

that character, culture and piety are

immortal "Thirteen" emblazoned

ought not to be. in a land ot liberty
and justice, under tlie tegls of that
great republic with whose fortunes the
providence ol God has anuea us nere
tofbre, and henceforth and forever'.
A SOLID FACT.
If It be urged that many of these
prisoners sympathized with the klan,
and some of them confessedly be
longed to it, I reply that such a speci
fication ought only to increase the
doubts and mis-giving-i of all thought
ful men. For they know very well
that character and properly are eon
servative; no slight cause would lead
these vested interests to favor any
movement inclining to anarchy.
The persons who are now in bonds
are not conspirators against the na
tional government ; on the contrary,
they have aluays, heretolore, wel
corned the United States soldier rs
the conservator ol the public order.
Nor are thev organized to prevent the
colored citizen from exercising his
political franchise; on the contrary,
bis political rqaallty Is conceded, and
they have even ottered to divide with
him tbeofllci s or the htate. tsut tney
contend that under tho present sys
tem of misrule aud lawlessness, "life.
liberty and the pursuit of happiness'
were left in ctrtair parts ot the coun
try without any protection; aud that
the communities thus Iinieri!ed were
thrown back upon the inalienable
right of self-protection.
A I PLICA I1LE TO THE WHOLE SOUTH
The facts which they appeal to are
notorions. ixoocdy can deny mat
their cattle and hogs were shot down
in then 'Ids; that their opening cot
ton bolls were pk'ked by nightly de
predators; that ths'ir gui-bouses weie
burned; that "the corner shops"
where cotton in the seed (stolen cot
ton) was bought grew rich, wuile the
heavily-taxed and plundered planter
scarcely knew where to get his bread ;
(I know one of this class who
expended $10,000 on his plantation,
and at the end of the season harvested
just three bales ct cotton, and just
corn enough to feed his horse for half
a year;) that laborers were inflamed
by Incendiary speeches, and were also
encouraged to break their contracts ;
that colored men were armed by the
governor in larger and larger num
bers, until at lengta they undertook
to raid certain pans ot the State; that
the public debt was incrcasimr. until
at length it has been increased by
.r0u,oooin a single year; that there
has been no money to repair the road,
or even to pay the meritorious teach
ers of tbe public schools, although
enormous taxes had been collected,
and the public officials were revelling
in Ul-gotten riches; in short, that the
good people of this Htate had found
themselves well-nigh engulphed in
a whirling, bottomless vortex of ruin.
The suflerirs insist that, under these
circumstances, a vigilance committee
and such the ku-klux professed to
be has been the usual American re
sort, and that sympathy with it was
not wholly unnatural.
Kl -K.LI Xi.-M AM) LOVAL LEAGUES
CHILD AND FATHER.
Notwithstanding these powerful
pleas I must confess that, for my part,
lam opposed to the ku-klux organiza
tion, and that for various reasons. In
the Mrst place, 1 do not believe that a
secret, oath-bound society of any sort
corresponds to the spirit'of American
institutions, vve have freedom of
speech and freedom ol the press. In
this country a just cause can appear
without disguise, and can make Its
direct appeal to public opinion. In
particular, I do not believe In vigi
lance committees of any sort. They
may, at times, do good by the inflic
tion ol summary justice. But they
may even do more evil. For they en
c urage tbe redress of wrongs by vio
lence, and not by law ; they give scope
to reckless men, who are apt to per
vert them to their own partisan and
revengeful usea; and they tend to de
press the moral tone ol the communi
ty in which their stern work is done.
But when I strive to apply my prin
ciples to tbe case before me, I am at a
loss wbat to conclude. The ku-klux of
the northern counties punished crimes
which were subversive of society, and
which, but for their undertaking the

some other way.

be called the first criminal in South

been already rewarded for their tes

of them have been arrested without
any charge, some while ministering
to r"vrty and sickness, many while

are unutterably distressing and hu-
