STAR OF THE NORTH,
WEDNESDAY, DEC. 28, 1559. TUB Jurors for February term of Court will appear in our next. WE tender lo all our readers the compli ments of the season, and wish all a happy New Year. THE Teachers' Institute ol Columbia Co. is in session this week at Millrille. Proceed ings next week. THE Exchange Hotel property, in this place, was not sold on last Saturday.— Cause—bids no: high enough. Fifty three Hundred dollars tvas the highest offer. HowEII'R CORNET BAND, of Bloomsburg, made their appearance in our streets on last Saturday, and discoursed some of their mosl excellent music; after which they paid a visit to the citizens of Espy, where they were received, no doubt, with kind Hospitality. NOTICE TO ALL —E. P. LCTZ, Druggist, of Bloomsburg, has just received Irom Phila delphia another large anil splendid assort ment of (Paragon) COAL ON. LAMPS. Call and see them before purchasing elsewhere. SPRINKI.E ASHES.—The slippery pave ment fs easily rendered less disagreeable and dangerous by sprinkling coal asltes thereon. As ashes cost nothing and are asily swept off when the snow melts, it would be no bad thing il every one would try the experiment in front of their houses —that is, we mean, those who are fortunate enough to own houses. Bv CARD in to-day's paper it will be seen that E. 11. LITTLE, Esq , has removed from Berwick to this place, where ho-will attend to the practice of law. His office will be found in Court alley, east of the Court bouse; the room formerly occupied by the Hon. C. R. is Prosecuting Attorney of this county, and the duties of this office require him 10 be at the County seat a good portion of his time, hence his removal. WHAT IS NKKUH) —We need for our dwel lings more ventilation and less heat ; we neen more out door exercise, more sunlight more amusements, more holidays, more frolic, and noisy, boisterous mirth. Our in fants need better nourishment than colorless mothers can ever furnish ; purer m ilk than distilleries can manufacture; our children need more romping, less study. Our old men more quiet, and earlier relaxation from the labors of life. All men,, both young and old, need less medicine and more good -counsel. OUR CARRIER thinks it necessary to notify his readers that he will be about on New Year's day with his annual message. He expects them to be prepared with a little of the "Ready John Davis," in the shape of "halves," quarters" or "levies." (Old shil lings and quarters taken at full value ) He will introduce himself with a profound bow, ■done up in his well known and peculiarly graceful slyle, accompanied by the compli ments of the season. The compliments of his exi". will depend altogether upon the donations received. Look out lor him, he certainly will be around. DECEMBER, although the first of the drea ry months, is really'the happiest month of the year to a large portion of humanity For in this month comes all the mysterious emulation of gilt-making preparations. In this month the young folks are speculating largely upon their Christmas vocation and Iheir visits from St. Nicholas, or their fami ly festivities und merry makings of all kinds. In this month, a twelve month's joys, and sometimes a twelve-month's sorrows, are summed up, and there is fresh talk of the ever-promised new leal lo be turned over. But serious thoughts and gloomy misgivings are in the minority in Dec , and there is always a unanimous determination lo have at least "a happy new year." Consequent ly we can truthfully say, December is the happiest month of the twelve. THE CASH SYSTEM.—We have determined, if possible, to do business upon the cash system. The losses which newspaper pub lishers have heretolore suffered by the pro rhise-to pay system, have been ruinoui in the j extreme. The leading journals all over the country are adopting the only safe plan that can be pursued, and demand payment in advance from subscribers. They enter no name upon their subscription books, unless it is accompanied with the cash, and when ever the money runs out the paper is stop ped until another payment is forthcoming. An editor who has bad long experience in the business, very forcibly remarks ibat it is rather amazing that any journal anywhere should be conducted on any other than the cash system. Credit is the inveterate scourge of American newspaper men, being utterly unknown to any other. Two-thirds ol our newspaper men, who have been twenty years or more in the business, have enough due them from delinquent patrons, to make them comfortable for the rest of their days; yet they will never see ten per cent, of it, while a good number ol them will be both ered to raise the requisite dimes wherewith to celebrate the next 4th of July. By the way, unhappy brethren of the credit press, why not commemorate the next anniversary of National Independence by cutting loose from the sharks who eat out your substance? Just proclaim 011 that day that no man can have your paper thenceforth unless he shall have paid for it, and you will have reason to bless the day and the deed evermore. Whenever the press shall have purged it self of the credit system, it will be ready to help overthrow mercantile credit—a system which enables rogues and drones to live uselessly and often fare sumptuously at the cost of honest, industrious people. When ever pay down shall be the general rule in buying goods, their average cost to consu mers will be reduced at least ten per cent. And why should those who pay bear a tax ol ten per cent, on their earnings for the benefit of those who never pay ? Tell us why? LIIIT ! LIGHT ! CP sa o? 3i a?

In ihe annals of the Press Ihere is no parallel to the brilliant success which has attended the career of The New York Mer cury—giving it a proud position never be fore enjoyed by any paper whatever, and eecuriug for it an almost unrivaled circula tion. The Mercury is by far Ihe largest, hand somest, and cheapest literary Journal in the world—containing as much of the mosl brilliant, entertaining, instructive, and amusing reading matter in each of its week ly issues as would suffice lo make a 12m0., book of 250 pages! It has the largest and most expensively organized corns of famous coulribuiors ever drawn to the focus of any one publication. Its columns are adorned with the vivid and sparkling pen-pictures ol the world-noted poet traveler, Ihe unequal ed BAYARD TAYLOR, who-e new series of California letters in The Mercury are a interesting as Hie most highly wrought ro mance, and whose inimitable contributions have been secured, at a heavy cost, exclu sively for The Mercury. This leading Journal of American litera ture will also continue to be illustrated weekly by the inspired pencil of the great est of American artists, FELIX O. C. DAR* LEY. In the departments of Historical romance, domestic tales, moral, artistic, and humor ous sketches, poetry, etc., all the old and justly famous contributors will be retained, with new accession from the highest walks of polite literature.

Eaton, Cousin May Car leton, Ned Buulline, Joseph Barber, Mrs. M E. Robinson, Capt. Jas. F. Alcorn, Geo. Martial, R. H. Netvell, and a host of popu lar roinaucists and sketch writers. The Mercnry is the peculiar glory of ev ery respectable fireside, and a fountain of intellectual pleasure, 0 n account of the pure and moral tone ol its tales and sketches. — Not a word or a sentiment is allowed to ap pear in it that would prove distasteful to Ihe lastidious moralist, or wound the feelings of any class of readers. The Mercury has the following speciali ties, which are original with it, and render il far supetior to any other family paper in existence. There is the inimitable Gossip er's Club, with its piquant, spicy, racy, and side-splitting bits of humor, oddity, bur lesque, and wit, contributed by some of the first humorists, lawyers, editors, and wila of the country, and eagerly copied by the Press from one end ol the Union to the other ; the Ladies' Promenade ; the Dramatic aud Musical Department ; the Sketches of the anions epicurean poet and finished scholar, "J. B.;" "The Floral Department;" and other novel features—to which new and still tnore brilliant ones will be added during the year 1860.
