ed as the peimd of enjoyment—it is •till marked
bv genial appearances; and round the social
hea.th on Christmas eve, the less artificial inha
bitants of the country will be found as Burns de
scribes them:

Th* feast of our Saviour’* nativity was un
doubledly celebrated in the early ages of Chris
tianity; lor we are told that, under the persecu
tion of Maximinus, that Emperor burnt a church
at Nicomedia, which was filled with Christians
assembled to keep this festival. St. Gregory
terms it the festival of festivals; and St. Chy

Chattkbtok gives a lively description of
Christmas, as it was in olden lime:
“ The antienr Christmas gamhds,” says the
poet, *• were, in mv opinion, superior to our ino
dern spectacles and amusements; wrestling'.hurl
tng the hall, and darning in the wood-lands, were
pleasures for men It is true the conversation of
the hearth side was the tales of superstition; the
fairies, Robin Goodlellow, and hobgoblins, never
fail'd to'make the trembling audience utter an
av.* maria, .ami cro-s their chins; but the laugh
able exercises of blind-mao’* butV, riddling, ond
ciuesfinn and rommand. sufficiently compensated
hir the few sudden starts of terror. Add to these
amusements the wretched voices of the chanters
and sub-chanteis, howling carols in Latin; the
chiming of consecrated bells; the burning conse
crated wax candles, curiously representing ’he
Vngin Mary; praying to the saint whose monas
tery stood nearest; the munching consecrated
cross-loaves, soul by the monies; all which ellVc
tu.illv eradicated the spectres of their terrific sto
ries. Nor were these the only charms eguinst
the foul fiends and nightmare; sleeping cross
legged, like die ••Ifigies of Kuig'it Templars and
wariiors, and the holy bu*h :uul church-yard vev/,
were certain antidotes against those invisible bi
•* The great barons and knights generally kep»
open houses during this season, when tbeir vil
lains or vassais were entertained with bread,
b<*ef. and beer, and a pudding, wastol-cake, or
Christmas kitcliel, and a groat in silver at part
ing: being obliged to wave the ful! flagon round
their heads, in honor of the master of the house.
P<a\s weie performed bv the monks;-the plot
being, generally, the life of some Pope, or the
(ouinf-r of the abbey to which the monks belong
ed. Private exhibitions at the manors of the ba
rons were usually* fainilv histories; minstrels,
jesters, and mummers, composed the next class
of performers, who were maintained in the castle
of the baron, to entertain his family.”
The “ \1 eteor of the Noito” has painted a vi

remonies, and wiih all the minute accuracy and
high finishing of a G**rhard D ni'v;
On Christinas eve the bells were rung;
On ChrU'nus eve the miss wa> sung;
T>mt only night, in all the year.
Sow the »toled prinat rhe'chalire rear.
The damsel donned her kirtle sheen;
The lull was dieased with holly green;
Forth to the wood did merry men go,
To gather in the mistletoe.
Then wpened wide the baron's hall,
T > vassal, tenant, serf, and aW;
Power laid his rod of rule a«nle,
A id rerem >nv doffUd his pride.

And general voice, the happy night,

The fire, with well-dried logs supplied,
Went mating up the chimney wide;
The huge hall-table’s oaken face,

No mark to part the ’squire and lord.
Then was brought in the lusty brawn,

And all the baiting of the boar.

If tintnelodious was the song,
It was a hearty note, amt strong.

And smutted cheeks the visors made;
But O! what masquers richly dight

A Christmas gambol oft could cheer
The poor man's heart thro' half the year.
In parts of the country remote from the me
tropolis in England, the singing of Christma*
carols yet ushers in the morning*. After break
fast the busy housewife prepares her plum pud
ding*, mince-pies, and confectionary, which she
decorate* with the emblems of the time:—a
scratch in the dough in the shape of a hay-rack,
denoting the manger of the infant Saviour, is
one of those emblems most commonly in use.—
The younger part of the household hunt the gar
den for evergreens to decorate the interior of
the apartments; and the woods are sought to
bung home the miseltoe, which is to be suspend
cd in the room where the pleasures of the even
ing are to take plate, and beneath which the
“sighing lips,” as Moore calls them, «>f many
a lovely girl still continue to be pressed, despite
of that coy resistance and those blushes that so
much heighten the charms of beauiy. They also
paint candles of different colors to be lighted up
in the evening, a custom perhaps borrowed from
ancient Romish practice; though some imagine
that lighting up houses formed a part of the wor
ship of the 1'tutonic god Thor, being one of the
ceremonies observed at Juul-tlde, or the feast of
Thor, from which it was introduced into the
Christian feast of Christina*. Thu*, it *ome
part of our Christmas ceremonies was derived
from the Saturnalia, another was evidently of
northern origin. The miseltne «as a plant held
sacred by the Druids The Christmas carols al
S> were, it is probable, Juul or Ule-songs first
sung in honor of the heathen deity; and the use
of evergreens may be ascribed to the same origin.
In the evening the Ule-lng. or Christmas stock,
as at present denominated, is placed on the fire
in the principal apartment of the house. I he

What remain* to modern times of Christmas
gambols then commences, and ancient Christmas
piavs are even still plainly to be traced among
j them. Blindman’s but!', hunt the slipper, the
1 game of the goose, soap dragon, or push pin, and
; dancing, form the amusements ol the younger
part of the assemblage, and cards of the elder;
though omonz the more substantial people, as
jt-iey are denominated in the language of the
country-folks, the simpler amusements begin to
lose their value. But their very simplicity re
cals the memory of past tunes: they have a cer
tain charm about them worth all that is artifi. lal,
and thfV would not be bereft of attraction to
minds of sensibility, if they were wholly aban
doned io the lowly; for they have that in them
which is far more endearing than the sordid
heartlessness of fashionable enter'ainments, and
the formality of high life. Bereft of supersti
tion, Christmas is thus a season «>f innocent
mirjtli—a pleasing interlude to lighten and be
guile the horrors ol our inclement winters. It
affords a period for the exhibition ol hospitable
greetings, and the pleasing interchange of good
offices, of which, in the country, opportunities
are not tare. How many innocent heart* rejoice
there at anticipating the season and its festivi
ties, whose feelings have never been chilled by
the artificial and calculating civilities of metro
politan intercourse. nut me numuier iau*s
have been accused of superstition, because the
stocking is still thrown, the pod with nine peas
hid over the door, and all the little ceremonies
so admirably depicted by Burns in his Hallowe'en
still practised These, liuw-ever, are now ;*ene
rallv looked upon as a divei6ion, and tew hate
faith in then eth~acy; for in our dav* the poor

These diversions come to them but ooce a year,

The Georgia Courier thus announces tUe re
ception of the Proclamation:—
“ The President’* Proclamation to the People
or South Carolina, which we mued this morning
in an Extra. iathe most important document we
ever published. Our reader* have no doubt pe
rused it with the most thrilling interest. e
glory that the President has proved himselt to
be such a Magistrate a* we anticipated Hr *•
worthy the crisis. But we must restrain our
feelings, Andrew Jackson and our Country
forever !”
The rd'itor of the Augusta Courier writes
that the anli-Nullification Resolutions of Mr.
Ryan have passspd the Senate of Georgia—48
28- A substitute, calling a Convention of all
the States, was negatived—48 tp 27. A resolu
tion asserting that the Senate had not the consti
tutional right to impugn the motives or reflect
op«n the acts of a sovereign Stale, was negativ
ed—48 to 28.
The Proclamation, as we predicted, appear*
to exasperate the nullifies almost to desperation.
The Charleston Mercury (chief Nullification
paper) thus speaks of it —
“ Andrew Jackson's Proclamation —The De
claration of VVar, made by Andrew Jackson,
against the State of South Carolina, occupies to
day the largest portion of our columns. It will
be read with the feelings which so extranrdinaty
a document is calculated to excite. This un
happy old man has been suffered by his advisers
to arrogate the po«er to coerce a State of the
Confederacy. He has issued the edict of a dic
tator, an edict which lime will prove w hether he
dares or can enforce. He has attempted in his
proclamation to intimidate lh^ whigs of South
Carolina by threats, and to encourage and foment
insurrection and violence on the part of the in
ternal enemies of the State. This document was
received here yesterday, and greeted vith the in
! rv freeman worthy of the name it ha* excited no
' other feelings but those of clenince and scorn.—
i Recreants will hail if as a brave blow in the cause
I of treason: and its receipt would perhaps have
encouraged the Federal conclave at Columbia, to
a more guilty pitch of insane insolence, had it
arrived before their adjournment. Our Legisla
ture is in session and will meet it with the spirit
and energv which become* them.
The manner in which ltd* edict is received
throughout the confederacy will decide a momen
tous question. It it be not oxecraied from Maine
to Mexico, the Union is not worth preserving,
anti will not be preserved.
In utter contrast to this federal edict, we pre
sent a ropy of Governor Hayne’* Inaugural
speech From tin* eloquence, woithyof the cri
sis. thi* beaming of a matured and vigorous in
tellect— id a clear and noble spirit, let the read
er turn* with what relish he can to the federal
manifesto, palmed upon us as Andrew Jackson’s,
hv Livingston or 'Van Btirpn. or some other in
triguer, behind the dictator’* throne—and if he
be not n serf, a fit subject for a Russian Autocrat,
let him answer whether he would not ntherdie
with Hayne, than crawl through existence with
the fawning paiasite* anti crouching mor.ial* of
federal supremacy.”
The Uti’on papers hold a different language.—
Thr Charleston Gazette »ayB—
The Proclamation of llie Prenident, which we
publish to-day. to the exclusion of almost every
thing else, will be read with intense interest
throughout all the bolder* of our great Repub
lic. We have no room for any comment*, and
if we had, the document doe* not require them.
It is able to abide the *' test of human scrutiny,
of talent*, and of time,” as an ever enduring
monument to the fame of him who ha* sworn
‘•that this Union shall be preserved.”
The Charleston Courier says:
We lay before our readers, this morning, the
highly important Proclamation of the President
ol the United States, which was issued yeiter
*dav ft otn our office in an extra, to gratify the un
exampled anxiety of the public. We have no
room for comment upon it to-day—indeed com
ment is unneces»ary—it is a powerful composi
tion anti speaka a language not to he misunder
stood. Let those to whom it is more particular
ly addressed, (the people of South Carolina)
read it attentively—let the solemn truths which
it contains sink deep into their hearts, and all
may vet be well.’’
The Union Convention adjourned on the J4th
inst. A correspondent of the Charleston Cou
tier gives the following account uf the last day's
“ The Union Convention met this day at the
appointed hour, and finished the highly important
business, deeply affecting the welfare of the
State and the permanency of the Federal Union,
; with which it was entrusted Toe meeting was
opened with solemn and impressive prayer from
the liev. Mr Green. The Hon. John S. Uirh

the remonstrance and protest, in a distinct and
impressive manner. During the reading of these
documents, a solemn stillness prevailed, aud
profound attention characterised the audience.
The question was then put without discussion,
on their adoption, and they received the unani- ,
tnous assent of the Convention. In pursuance
of a resolution to that effect, the members then
rose as their names were called, walked unco
vered to the President’* table, and attached their
signatures to the remonstrance and protest, the
Hoo. Henry Middleton, the Hon. David John
son, the Hon. Richard J. Manning, and the linn.
Starling Tucker, as Vice Presidents, and Frank
lin J. Moses and James E Henry, as Secretanes
of ttieCunvention. signing first, and the members
following in Alphabetical order. A space was
reserved at the head of the list for the name of
the venerable President of the Convention, Col.
Thomas Tavlor, a patriot of the Revolution,
now in his 90th year, who was prevented by con
tinued indisposition Irom honoring and cheering
the Convention by his presence, and presiding t
at the offering Ihey were about to make on the
altar ot liberty; and a Committee was appointed
to wait on and present it to him for signature.—
When the signing was completed, the Secretary
reported that one hundred and neventy-sxx dele
gates, being the whole number present, bad in
scribed their names on this roll of freedom and
immortality On motion, it was resolved, that
the delegates to the convention, prevented trom
attending the present session, and members «d
the Legislature attached to the Union Party, be
allowed hereafter to affix their signatures to the
remonstrance and protest. It was agreed that
the several documents above referred to should
be deposited in the keeping of the Hon. Henry
Middleton. ,
It was then resolved, on motion of Judge
Richardson, “that when this Convention ad
journs, it stand adjourned until the 4th day "t
March next,” with an understanding thu' it be
sooner re convened if required by the exigeti
cies of the times. The thanssof the Conven
tion were tendered to the Rev Mr Gieen. >"r

the Vice Presidents and Secretaries tor »We «'»i
litv with which they discharged the duties of
their several offices.* The presiding officer then
delivered a brief but feeling address, appropri
ate to the termination of the labors of the Con
vention, and the approaching separation nl its
members—and p'tyer was again offered up by
the Rev. Mr. Green to the throne of Almighty
Grace, invoking blessings upon the council* and
measures of the Convention, and protection
amidst impending danger; after which the Con
vention adjourned.
“ A more imposing scene than was exhibited
by the Convention on this momentous occasion,
has been rarely witnessed. The deep solemni
ty that depicted on every countenance, and
characterised ever transaction, the hallowed offi
ces of religion, and 'he wisdom and respectabi
lity of the assembly, uniting the learning ot the
Bench, the genius and eloquence of the Bar.
the wealth of the planter, and the heroism ot
1776, together with associations connected with
tha perils of the crisis, all contributed to pro
duce a powerful and impressive effect. The
»iw> .lA.Mim.nl. ..itnnf»»<1 hv tlic* Con
vention, have been provided for, and I therefore
will not attempt to give you from memory an
imperfect detail of their contents, especially as
their general tenor was stated in my la“t commu
nication. It is sufficient for the present to sm
that they are worthy of the distinguished assem
bly from which they emanate, and of the mo
mentous subjects of which they treat; that they
embody the creed of the Union Party, and
breath, at once, a devotion to the Union, and a
determined spirit of resistance to the hateful ty
ranny that has recently erected itself in our
State. The Union Party have now disclosed
their sentiments and assumed their attitude—it
is that of perfect harmony and concert among
themselves, anil is characterised bv both mode
ration and decision—they are earnestly desirous
of peace with their eiring brethren, but are vet
resolved to assert their equal claim to consti
tutitonal liberty and the lights of man.
»»It is remarkable, and quite an accidental co
incidence, that the day on which the Convention
closed its deliberation, is the anniversary of the

The house considered the report of the Com
mittee on Federal Relations, oil that part ot the
Governors Message No. 5, which relate* to an
application to be made to Congress, lor a Con
vention of all the States.
During the consideration of the report, Mr.
Frost moved to strike out some words on the
ground of inexpediency; and contended that in
sinuations, as to the course South Carolina would
pursue, rt/ler the determination of such a body as
the report proposed to convene, were not proper
to be embodied in an invitation to the < o-State*;
and therefore, he said, he was unwilling to vote
for that portion of the report. He was sustain
ed by Mr. Cohen, and opposed by Mr. Ward
law and Mr. Preston. On the question to strike
out, the House refused. Mr, Cohen then moved
to strike out the works “ final and conclusive,”
before the word “ decision,” so that the reading
would be, •» for the purpose of obtaining a decis
ion thpreon,” to which the House agreed; the
yeas and nays were then required, and are, yeas

and ordered to the Senate.
A resolution was submitted bv Mr. Brooks,
requiring the Printer to the H iiuse forthwith in
