Christmas Gift! Christmas Gift!! Having thus "caught" all the "readers of the Spectator and placed them under obligations to present us with "Christmas Gifts," we extend to them, most cor dially, the greetings of this joyous season. We hope that all of them may have a merry Christ mas and a happy New Year, and that, through out life, they may be blessed with "health, peace and competence." We tender our most heart felt greetings to the merry,- happy, innocent chil dren, and hope that Santa Claus will not neglect to bestow his generous Christmas gifts upon'any of them, and that he will fill to repletion every little stocking that is hung up in the confiding faith that he will deposit welcome presents in it. We would have them, as they are enjoying the gifts bestowed upon them, to think kindly and sympathetically of those poor little children who have no stockings to hang u/, and would ask them to request their parents iot to fail to give something to the mothers of tlese poor, unfortu nate little children. Your knd father is still alive, and you and your moth.r have a strong arm and a generous bosom to lean upon, but the father of these poor children, i. may be, gave up his life, in obedience to the cab of his country, and sleeps in a soldier's grave _.noath the cold snow. The mother has no loving husband, and her little, innocent children no kind father—she has no husband to caress her, and they have no father to fondle them upon his l_.p. Santa Claus may neglect to call at the humble home of this poor widow, and her little children may not know that it is Christmas, ex.ept by the joy which you, and others equally fortunate,' may express. Tell your father to act the part of Santa Claus for that poor family, and that you will not enjoy your Christmas and New Year's holidays till you know that that poor widow and children are in possession of a sufficiency cf food, clothing and fuel. Remind him that, "Ac that giveth to the poor, lendeth to the Lord." .-•-• The freight trains on the Virginia Central Rail Road will not run during the holidays. ■ » . 1 The proceedings of the General Assembly of Saturday, Dec. 15th, and Monday, Doc. 17th, will be found on the 4th page of this issue. _#-. It is' thought that more'subscribers would have paid on Monday last, if the impression had not prevailed that our office was so crowded with persons awaiting receipts that more could not gain admittance to be waited upon. We think that a few more could have been accommodated. We will take pleasure, however, in waiting upon them at some other time not very distant. ..a . . > On Friday evening last, about 6 o'clock, Jef ferson Ki_ xey, Esq., died suddenly of paraly sis, at his residence about two miles from this place. He was about G5 years of age. He was an intelligent, worthy citizen, and was, for many years, an efficient clerk of the County Court of Augusta. A more particular and lengthy notice will be published hereafter. BALD EAGLE KILLED. ■On tho 17th of November, on tho farm of Mr. -John. R. Syrcle, near the Red Mill on South riv er, in this county, Mr. Malachi Kennedy shot a bald eagle which measured three feet in length, and eight feet from the tip of one wing to the tip of tho other. . »-#-• SENTENCED TO BE HUNG. We published some time since the fact that Joel Bumgardner had foully murdored Mr. John T. Eubank, of this county, on the Ohio river.— The murderer has been tried in a Court in the State of Ohio and sentenced to be hung. Ho will thus get his reward for foully murdering a good citizen and respectable man. , _#— EPISCOPAL FAIR. The ladies of the Episcopal Church held a Fair on Thursday and Friday nights last in the dining room of the Va. Hotel. The weather was unfa vorable and the proceeds, in consequence, were not as much as they would otherwise havo been. AYe understand that the receipts amounted to :about $200, which will be appropriated for the .benefit ofthe Church. .«_ "CANTATA OF THE SPRING HOLIDAY." We regret that we could not attend the musical entertainment—"Cantata ofthe Spring Holiday" —at the Augusta Female Seminary on Thursday evening last. We understand from those who had the pleasure of being present that it was a perfect success. The well-known qualifications of the performers furnish a sufficient guarantee that whatever they may undertake in the way of a musical entertainment of any kind will be in the highest degree successful. __ _»_ PAY THE CARRIER. On next Tuesday morning—New Year's day— the Carrier of the Spectator will present his an nual address to the subscribers in this place to whom he has been delivering the paper regularly every week during the past year. We hope that he will be liberally rewarded for his faithful and punctual service. He was converted by the gen eral emancipation from a slave .to a freedman, but his changed condition has not spoiled him— he still thinks that "a white man is as good as a nigger, 'specially if he 'haves hisself." ._#_. .

On Monday night, the 17th inst., tho question discussed in the Staunton Lyceum was : i'ls Re publicanism a failure T' The affirmative was ad vocated by Alex. B. Cochran, Esq., and thejieg ativo by Y. Howe Peyton, Esq., Dr. C. R. Har ris and Prof. Pike Powers. The speakers acquit ted themselves with credit. _he merits of the question being submitted to the vote of the Ly ceum, the question was decided in the affirmative by the majority of one vote—not in the negative, as erroneously published by the Valley Virginian of last weok. The question to be discussed on Monday night next, December 31st, is : "S/iould the usury laws of this State be abolished ?" General Echolg and Jas. Bumgardner, Esq., were appointed to open the discussion. . •-. GOOD AND CHEAP BROOMS. We have spoken frequently ofthe Broori Fac tory at Churchville, in this county, and : have urged upon the people the policy and propriety of encouraging that branch of homo industry by buying the brooms made there. AYe can iow state that the merchants of this and other cmn ties can be furnished with them in any quar.ity at Baltimore prices by application either at the Factory or the store of Ker & Bro., of this pkce. We have a couple of these brooms, and "s>3ak that which we do know" when we say that they are excellent brooms. AYe think that no pthers should be used by the persons of this and the surrounding counties. Our people should show by their acts that they wish to encourage home industry. In this case, they can do so without any sacrifice, as these broom? are as good md aa cheap, as those made in tho North or elsewhere. *. - . _______ _._ DEAF, DUMB AND BLIND. We have been presented by Mr. J. C. Covell, Principal, with the report to the General Assem bly of Virginia, of the Board of Visitors of the Institution, at this place, forthe Deaf and Dumb and Blind. The public generally will bo pleased to learn that this Institution, which does so much for the unfortunate, is in a prosperous condition. We paarn from the report of the efficient Principal that, at the time his report was made, in Octo ber last, there were 47 Deaf mutes, and 31 Blind pupils in this Institution. The wants ofthe Institution amount to tho sum of $20,705.00 which it is hoped the Legislaturo will not hesitate to grant. As it may not consist with the ability ofthe State to pay out so large a special appropriation in this current year, in con junction with the annuity of the Institution, tho Principal suggests that the appropriation bo made subject to the drafts ofthe Institution, as the Leg" islature may enact, in the present fiscal year and the one following. From the Ist of October 1805 to September the 30th, the Institution was in receipt of $25,000 from the Commonwealth, and $1,709.07 from pay pu pils and other sources, which, with the balance 'on hand at the commencement of tho fiscal year of $2,279.90, makes the sum of $28,988,57. The disbursements from that time amounted to $26,- -194.51, thus leaving a balance of $2,705.00 in favor ofthe Institution at the end of the fiscal year.— During the past year the support fund was large ly taxed for extraordinary expenditures, such as repairs and improvements, furniture, freight and express, &c., all of which were imperative. It is the opinion of the Principal that the present an nuity will be sufficient for the support of the In stitution for the fiscal year ending September 30th, 1867. Within the past year, eight pupils have left the Institution, and thirty-six have joined it. The report of the Principal states that it is a well-established fact that education prolongs the lives of both the blind and the deaf, on account ofthe healthful excitement thereby superinduced. The report recommends the addition of a con sulting physician and a skillful and experienced dentist to the medical faculty ofthe Institution. "Tlie blind and deaf mute boys are various ly distributed in the shoe shop, the carpenter's shop, the printing and binding shop, the tailor's shop and the mattress shop. The report states that broom-making is an ex cellent trade for the blind, and recommends that that important branch of handicraft be reinstated in the shops in a short time. "The Deaf, Dumb and Blind Fire Company" is fully organized in full uniform and is one of the attractive features ofthe Institution. CONCERT AT THE D. D. & B. INSTITUTION. On Saturday last, a concert was given at the Institution "for the Deaf, Dumb and Blind, by Prof. A. J. Turner, lately elected Professor of Music of that institution. It is no stretch of the imagination to say that it was the most creditable concert, to both Professor and pupils, that was ever given in the Institution. It would have done credit to any association and would have been worthy of any audience. The programme was composed ofthe following pieces: Part I— Brass Band —l. Palmetto Waltz; 2. Cinderilla Quickstep; 3. Old Dominion March,. (A. J. T. •) 4. Washington Quickstep. Part II. — Orchestra—l. Dream Life Schot tisch; 2. Cally Polka; 3. Bloomer Waltz and Polka; 4. Turner's Waltz and Gallop, (A. J. T.;) 5. Gipsy Schottisch; 0. Fairy Waltz and Gallop, (A. J. T.) Part III—I. Great God to Thee—quartette- Choir ; 2. Come when you will —solo —Miss Sue Ridenour; 3. Come where my love lies dreaming —quartette—Choir ; 4 What aro the wild waves saying—duett—Misses Catlett and Ridenour; 5. Heavenly Dwelling—anthem—Choir; _0.

The social glass—glee—Garland, Pultz and J. Holmes. Finale. —Sing unto the Lord —a Christmas an them —Choir. Among the audience present was the Board of Visitors, the Hon. Mr. Caperton, Gen. Echols, Senator Trout, and several distinguished mem bers of the Staunton Bar who expressed them selves highly gratified. RANDOLPH MACON COLLEGE. We publish this week the advertisement of Randolph Macon College to which we invite attention. We adopt the language of the Richmond Examiner which says, in speaking of this college, that the record of Randolph Macon is an exceedingly good one, and during its many years of usefulness prior to the war, the numbers, scholarship and distinction in the various professions and avocations, of its grad uates, demonstrated the wisdom ofthe steadfast support and encouragement rendered the insti tution by the Methodist Church of tho South. As we are heartily committed to the advance ment ofthe educational interests of the State, we hail with unfeigned satisfaction, the promise of the speedy reestablishmcnt in influeuce and popularity, of so deserving an institution, un der the management of a faculty able, com petent and experienced. Although the institution was financially pros trated by the war, the authorities, with a most commendable generosity, propose to educate, free of tuition, young men preparing for the Ministry, and disabled soldiers in necessitous circumstances. A striking feature in the re organization ofthe course of instruction, is the establishment of a school of commercial science, with a view to the preparation of young men for business pursuits, and evidently contempla ting a more comprehensive and efficient course of instruction than is usually given in this im portant branch of education. These and other attractive inducements, which we have not space to mention, are a guarantee of a suf ficient patronage from the public at large, and especially from the numerous and powerful re ligious organization, under whose auspices Randolph Macon has heretofore been so effi ciently conducted. _ -♦-• Dii_o_o_s of the Western Lunatic Asy lum.—The Governor appointed the following gentlemen, Directors of the Western Lunatic Asylum at Staunton for the remainder of the term of three years, commencing with the first day of November, 1866 : Nieholaa K. Trout, James C. Wheat, Alexander H. 11. Stuart, John Wayt, Wm. C. Eskeridge, Henry H. Peck, Benjamin P. Points, Benjamin Crawford, Edwin M. Taylor, H. M. Bell and John New ton. On Monday, the 17th inst., being Court day, a public meeting was held in Harrisonburg, Rockingham county, in which, among others, a resolution was adopted in opposition to any change in the usury laws of this State. .—■ i m Surratt. —The trial of John H. Surratt will probably make public two important portions of the evidence on the conspiracy trial. One is the journal of J. Wilkes Booth, in which the last'entry was made a few hours prior to his death, and which was taken from his pocket, but has thus far been kept secret. The other is a confession made by Payne to a general of ficer of volunteers, just prior to his execution, to which he declared that the plot was for the abduction of President Lincoln, and that it was only a few hours prior to the assassination that Booth ordered them to commit murder, they having repeatedly failed in their attempts at abduction.— Neio York World. •-•-. A Lesson from History.—The French Constituent Assembly, which preceded the National Convention, the domination of the Jacobins, and the Reign of Terror, made more ' 'laws'' in two years than the English Parliament had done in two hundred! So says, the his orian The succeeding assembly made as many —with this difference, that while the former aimed for the most part a general reformation, the last were all vindictive. "History is philos ophy, teaching by examples. Let the lesson be applied! I7B_-_866--__e DifFcrei. je. We clip the subjoined article from the New York Express : In January, 1784, immediately after the con clusion of peace with Great Britain, Congress passed the following: "Resolved unanimously, Thai _*. be. and it is hereby earnestly recommended to the Legisla tures of the respective States, to provide for the restitution of all the estates, rights and pro perties, tohich have been confiscated, belonging to real British subjects. * * * * And it is also hereby earnestly recom mended to the several States to reconsider and revise all their acts and laws regarding the premises, so as to render the said laws or acts perfectly consistent, not only with justice and equality,6«. with that spirit of conciliation which, on thereturn ofthe blessings of peace, should un iversally prevail. In 1866, —we have from our Radicals of this day, all sorts of wild, crazy, and revengeful pro jects to destroy and to degrade the Southern States. The difference between the Washing tons, the Madisons, the Franklins, the Hancocks, and the Adamses of that day, and ofthe Sum ners, Wades, Stevenses, &c , &c, of this, our day, is marked. Alas, —there are no Statesmen in the Repub lic, —no individual man, who can lift himself up above party, and look to his country. There ' never before was so great a party as the Repub lican party, without a single Statesman, or a single individual man. The Democrats had their individualities in their Jefferson.., Ran dolphs, Clays, &c., and the Federalists in their Hamiltons and Quincej .—but the Republicans have no Statesmen, no real live men, except Thad. Stevens, in the whole party, —and he was a third rate man in the old Whig party, among the Clays and Websters of his day. There is not a prominent man in the Republican party, in 1860, that dares lift himself up to this Flat form of 1784. _»_ Maryland is looked upon with an ''evil eye," by the Radical faction. Maryland did not secede; but the great majority ofthe people of Maryland, since the close of the war, have plainly indicated their hostility to ultraism, in all its shapes and forms ; and hence they now receive no favor. The kindness manifested towards the.South, the result of the popular elections, the exhibitions of sympathy for an oppressed and suffering section of country, shown almost all over the State, have embit tered the feelings of the Radicals, and induced them to regard Maryland as not much better than Virginia. The offences of Maryland have, however, culminated, in the recent election of Custis Lee, a son of Gen. Robert E. Lee, as Fresident of the Maryland Agricultural College. No objection, of course, is made as to the ca ability of the newly elected officer, or as to his qualifications; but he is denounced in the Washington Chronicle, "as the son and imitator of his unhung progenitor"—the College is set down as a Rebel concern, and it is demanded that if the U. S. donation of 75,000 acres ol land for college purposes, has not been given to the Maryland Agricultural College, it_ shall now be withheld! This is as near Jacobinism, in spirit, and in letter as has yet been reached in this country. — Alex. Gazette. Wonderful Discovery.—We are informed that in making recent excavations in the upper part of Fauquier county, Va., very curious relics have been found in a mouud, which proved to be, what had long been supposed, an Indian burial-place—two skeletons, which evidently showed there were giants in those days, with spearheads and the usual paraphernalia found in Indian grave.. The great subject ofinterest shown v a tablet containing hieroglyphics of a very curious character. W. Norris, of that county, a gentleman who has travelled very ex tensively in the East, (and who was with Grlid don in his celebrated journey across the desert), is of the opinion that this discovery will prove the identity of the Indian tribes with some of the Asiatic tribes, and settle the question so long mooted as to their origin. We are further informed that Mr. Norris will now proced to Washington city with this tablet, for the pur pose of showing it to Professor Henry and other savans. The result is looked forward to with no little interest. — Alexandria Journal. . _——.—. Hon. Francis Thomas, of Mainland, has pre pared a bill for introduction in the House to "guarantee a republican form of government" to Maryland. Ihe bill premises that thirteen counties ofthe State, comprising notmorethan one-fifth of the white population of the State, control the legislation. It provides for the assembling of a constitutional convention; the delegates to which shall be voted for by all citizens, without regard to color, and when a constitution is adopted it shall be submitted to Congress, when, it it is approved, it shall be declared the fundamental law of the State, and the officers chosen in accordance with it shall be installed. • _-. Tite Virginia Vineyards.—There is reason to believe that the vineyards of the Piedmont valley will become an important source of wealth to Virginia. The surrounding mountain ranges give them a warm and even climate, which is peculiarly favorable to grape culture. They are quite free from rust and mildew. During the last season, when even the excellent vineyards at Erie, in this State, suffered severer ly those in Piedmont escaped uninjured. The grapes ripen there nearly a month earlier than our New York varieties, and are said to equal, if not to surpass them in flavor. The yield is also claimed to be more abundant. — New York Post. «_#_—,— —i ~, The outside Radicals, in every direction, are urging upon Congress, to "Territorialize" the Southern States. They are more impatient even than the Congressional leaders. The "Territorializing" process now, is to be a limit ed one. Upon the reconstruction on a "loyal basis" —nobody being allowed to vote but ' ioyal" men —and everything arranged so that nobody but Radicals can be elected to any office, and the Radicals to have full and entire away — then, the ' 'Territories,'' are to emerge again into fullblown STATES, with Radical Senators, Radical Representatives, Radical Governors, Radical Legislatures, Radical everything! This is the plain! ..*-. Whatever your occupation or calling may be, if it needs support from the public, advertise it thoroughly and efficiently, in some shape or other that will arrest public attention. I freely con fess that what success I have had in life may fairly be attributed more to the public press than to nearly all other causes combined.—P. T. Barnum.

Brayton, Missionary in India, who was stung by a Scorpion. Extract from his letter, published in the Bap tist Missionary Magazine: "For the first time since I have been in India, I have been stung by a scorpion. I went out this morning to my exercises, as usual, at early dawn, and having occasion to use an old box, on taking oil .he cover I put my haud on a scorpion, which immediately resented the insult by thrusting its sting into the palm of my hand. The instanta neous and severe pain which darted through the system is quite incredible; what an awfully vir ulent poison their sting must contain ! I flew to my bottle of Davis' Pain Killer, and found it to be true to its name; after a moment's relief, I saturated a small piece of sponge, bound it on my hand, and went about my exercises, feel ing no more particular inconvenience. dec! —lm TO CONSUMPTIVES.—The Advertiser, having been restored to health in a few weeks, by a very simple remedy, after having suffered several years with a severe lung affection, and that dread disease, Consumption—is anxious to make known to his fellow T sufferers the means of cure.
