A Merry Christmas!
We come to our kind readers and patrons on
this Christmas mora with the customary greet
lor "A Merry Christmas 1"
There Is tradition that abont this time In
the year an anniversary was kept among anotent
heathen nitloni. in commemoration of the
death of the old San and the .birth of a new
one jnat emerging Irom the eight of the pact
into the light, life, and beanty of a new year,
This anniversary of the twenty-fifth of De
cember is also observed among Christian na
tiooa In commemoration of what when we
tbluk of the condition of onr Ill-fated
oountry -seems to hare bscome practically in
men's minds like a heathen fable or legend
the death of an old dispensation in whioh the
law of retaliation and revenge held sway, and
the birth or ushering In of a new era In which
tha nations would "learn war oo more." but
the law of lore prevail nniverselly.
We have a record in a book that seems to be
venerated as the Jews venerated the sepolohers
of the prophets, whose warnings they despised
and set at naught that on a certain day, which
tradition has assigned ti be 25th of December,
a Divine personage, called the Prinoe of Peace
was born into oar world, and that his advent
was heralded by a choir of angels, who sang, In
the hearing of some of earth's lowly children,
ths glorious refrain" Peace on earth and good
will to men," or as scholars render it, "good
will among men."
"Peace on earth and good will among men!"
Peace in the United States and good will among
the people! Would not this be the glad re
sponee to-day were we a nation of Christians
and not merely .nominally a Christian nation?
Would not pesos relga within our borders if
tithe of those whs profess to teach, and of
those who profess to practice His precepts, were
genuine praotioal disciples of ths Prinoe of
We tender our congratulations of "A Merry
Christmas!" with snbdued hearts and gloomy
apprehensions; yet there are slgbs like the
streaks of iatnt gray light that precede the

The Times may call the originators of ths
movement for the removal of Sewabb a sco

constitute a section so powerful that they rule
the party, and are determined to ehape the
course of the Administration to their liking or
knak it down. The Time may speak of these
men aiming at "a factious triumph;" bat it Is
clear that they obtained a decided ana sign si
victory, when in the Senatorial caucus, on the

Ma. Eoitoi: Justice requires that a state-

by Judge Advocate Tdbneb, tbat Dr. Olds was
ordered to be unconditionally released. Die
trusting this, 1 inquired again and again, and
became satisfied that tbe order had been made.
Supposing that Dr. Olds was out, I wrote tbe

Had General McClellan been In command
at Frederloksburg, no order from Washington,
no pressure on the part of the people, coold
have forced him to aitaok the rebel fortifica
tions, except through scientific advances and
under the cover of counter fortifications. This
might, to be sure, have given ibe rebel forces
a chases of escaping by retreat; but It is not
so bad to risk the retreat of an enemy as to
make a terribly haaardous attack upon him,

The Journal's Falsehood About Dr. Olds
The JvurntTi statement of Monday mowing,
that Dr. Olds wae greeted with a storm of
groans and hisses upon his arrival at Zanesville,
Is an Infamous falsehood, manufactured out of

for thus branding It. It is perhsps due to the
"Editor in Chief" of the Journal to state that
the falsehood waa perpetrated by his local
Hon. William Lawbence, of Guernsey coun
ty, is named as a candidate for Lieutenant
Governor. He has served, with fidelity and
efficiency, in both branches of the Legislature
of Ohio, as well as in the House of Congress,

Col. Hildebrand, of the Seventy-Seventh
Ohio, in a New Character.
We find ths following article in the Blooming
ton (111.) Stattman of December 19th. Were-
sret to And Col. Hildibrakd in the new' char
acter here given him. He used to be a Demo
orat ; but since he sought favors from this Ad
ministration, and received a commission from
the Governor of Ohio, he seems to have for
gotten the lessons of the past, and tbo honest
conviotlous of the best years of his life. Here
is the artlole :
Didn't Taxi Him. Oq the 5th inst. a Lieu
tenant with a squad of men visited Jerseyvllle
lor the purpose of arresting the editor; ot the
Jersey vllle Union by order of the Post Comman
dant at Aition ua entering me euiiors sanc
tum, the Lieutenant said : " Sir, you are my
Editor" Have you a warrant (or my arrest

Lieutenant" I forgot to br'mg them, sir,
but I am direoted by Col. Hildebrand, who has
orders from Gen. Curtis, to arrest you, and I
must do it."
Editor" If you have a warrant from even a
juslioe, sir. I will quietly submit ; but if, as you
eay, you nave no papers, i win resist tms ille
gal arreet to tho last ! "
About this time the friends of the editor en.
tered the lists, and informed Lieut. Jones that
no arrests could bo made la that place, " with
out papers." As the news spread, the people
became exuited, and the Union save:
4 "Every road and lane responded with the
tramp of the yeomanry ot Jersey, Irom the old
veteran of eighty years to the lad of a dozen
summers! They came from every hamlet;
every bill and dale was alive with preparations,
and by scores and hundreds they manlfeated
the strongest determination to maintain the
authority of the Constitution, whioh declares
that no person shall be arrested without due
nroceas or law! une oia dim etupnsiicaiiy de

eniovment of free speech, and be would sooner
die than loose it!" - -. .'
The Lieutenant and hiB squad returned to
Alton without their victim. The lime for ille
gal arrests in Illinois bas gone by . The people
submitted for a long time, for tbe sake of avoid-
Ids: strife in the Worth, but tbe feeling Is becom
ing strong and general that it is not patriotism,
but rather cowardice to longer acquleeca in such

late speeoh in Congress as follows, under date
of December 16th:
The character of parties wee yesterdav dis
cussed at length by the Hon. S. 8. Cox, la the
House of Representatives, and even those who
oppose him in politics wre facineted by the
ability and wit ne displayed in ottseotlog the
facta of history. In a lengthy summing up of
what has been accomplished by this Admlols-1
ration, he spoke of a divided country, and tbe
evil effects of war upon all kinds oi productive
Interests; estimated tbe publlo debt at $1,000,.
000,000, of coarse did not forget the slavery
question and. the kabtao eorj diffloolty, and
gave It as his opinion that one hundred anl fifty
thousand of tbe best youth of the eonntry had
been killed on tbe battle-fields of this war, and
tbat nearly the same number had died of dis
sase. lie detenaca raoweiian.Diemea toe Presi
dent, and spoke of Burnside as one who would
himself be soon "brought to the ttme of
Jasper." tie said that war alone would never
unite this nation the eagle must use the dove,
the sword must be gaslanded with tbe olive;

Speech of Hon. S. Cox. Rumored Change in the Cincinnati Post-
The Cincinnati Enqnirtr of Tuesday says:
We understand, from a gentleman direot from
Washington, that an immediate change In tbe
Cincinnati Poitofflce is contemplated, and
rumor bas It that the new appointee has beon
seleoted to fill tbe plaoe of Mr. Banm. It is
alleged that a discrepancy between the senior
department at Washington and tbe Junior de

' Intelligent persons and physicians ean Judge
of tbo efficacy of tbe Plantation Bitters from
the following partial formula.

Was unknown to civilisation until the middle
of the 17th eentury. Humboldt makes favora
ble mention of the febrifuge qualities of this
artlole as an Antldoto for Fever and Ague, In
termittent and Malarious Fevers, in his ezten- ,
sire South American travels. The Countess,
wif of the Viceroy of Peru, having expe
rienced the beneficial effeots of tbla Bark, sent
It to Europe In 1640. It was sold by ths
Jesuits for tbe enormout turn of if otea weight .
in tilver, and was thus called Jgeorrs' Powdu. '
In 1658, Sir John Talbot employed it with
great succcsi in France, in the treatment of
Fever and Ague, Dyspepsia, Nervous Affec
tions, Loes of Appetite, Weakness and Debili-,''
ty, Palpitation of tbe Heart, Diarrhoea, eto., -under
tbe name of English Powders; and in,,
1679, he suld tbo seoret of Its origin to Louis
XIV, by whom it was divulged. It is now a
standard remedy in all Pharmacopoeia, and -Is
employed in preparing the Plantation Bit

Another ingredient of remarkable and won

The tonio properties of St. Crolz Rum, and
Its powerful Invigorating effects have been long
known to the physicians ol the world.
Bilious. Intermittent and Chill Fevers, en
gendered by the ohange of water and diet of
travelors, particularly npon western rivers, are
prevented and cured by tbe Plantation Bitters. .
They are also reliable to prevent sea sickness.1
