We rejoiein this -marl of the prosperijy of our brelhern of the press, may their paying tv-tronage increase an hundred f"!d. ; Merry Christmas ! Such indeed beloved readers we hope you j havg enjoyed and may yours likewise be a " Happy New Year." " Christmas is come," shouts the little urchin, as he hurls his fire crackers under our feet, or sends his rocket blazing into the " astonished air." Merry Christmas to all," repeats the fortunate and the gay and the jest and jocund laugh rings forth merilv, as some one is caught napping and the "gilt" jp claimed. "Christmas comes but once a year," says the merry maker while lit piles high the blazing fire aud listens right well pleased, to the music of ringing glasses or smacks his lips over his usual Christmas "Egg Nog," A merry, merry season indeed is it to all who enjoy fortunes favors, or are receiving the fruits of their honest labors. A season of joy and gaycty which we particularly rejoice to see the juveniles enjoying to their "top of their bent." How cheerful aud cheer ing, the gratified expression of their plcasent faces as they examine their stock of toys, play things, candies, etc., which they rejoice in be lieving the particular gift, to good children, of time out of mind, their accredited friend the jovial old Kriss Kringle or Santa Claus. 'Tis a sweet delusion, let them enjoy it w hilo they may, for full soon enough will come the bitter awakening to life's realities. Gold could not buy our delightful memories of the good old times, when we joyously believed in the actual visits of the above uained patron saint -and now as we see these scenes of innocent merriment enacted by the children of to-day we joy that still the fashion of the good old days, lias not departed the earth, 'mt there yet remains these reminders of our boyhood's happiest Injurs. I To some unfortunates, Christmas brings with it no joy no smiling tace or nappy greeting with all our abundance let us remember those and enclinnce our ownjenjoyniont byjlightening the care of those 'who must feel it as tho poet has sung : ' "A hard bitter lot O God I to be poor w hen it snows." And that "As pemiiy is felt, the thought is chained And Sweet colloquiaal pleasures are but few.1' To the believer in revealed religion tobim who loves to think on the sublime subject of the resurrection -Christmas, especially Christ mas Sabbath, suggests thoughts moving and glorious beyond expression "Christ is born" - -"Christ is risen." Here the mind loves to dwell and hero is food enough for contempla tion and employment beyond anything the skeptic ever dieams, could he be convinced beyond the shadow of a doubt by the clearest demonstrations of the solidity of his fabric of pretended belief he has nothing in "his philos ophy" that can so move the mind as in this connection the humblest believer feels. The Epidemic Si mmer. We are under ob ligations to the proprietor of the New Or leans True Delta, for a copy of a work bear ing the above title.

Orders to be forwarded to the publi cation office of the True Delta, 103, St. Char les street, New Orleaus. Wre should think the projector of this work had "struck a breeze" in getting it up; So many have died who have friends far away, who will find a mournful satisfaction in look ing over the crowded and dark record and so many, generally will have a desire to examine it, that we predict the work w ill have a great run. It is got up in neat substantial style, ar ranged so as to be easily referred to in looking for any particular name and contains near 70 pages printed in fine type. The whole num ber of interments reported within the dates above given is 12151. "AVc acknowledge the receipt of an ad dress of Charles Gayarrc, (late independent candidate for Congressional honors, in the 1st Congressional District of Louisiana.) "on the late frauds perpetrated at the election heM on the 7rh of November, 1853, in the city of New Orleans." The honorable gentleman is very severe upon Judge Dunbar his successful op ponent, and upon certain imaginary individuals who he not only insinuates but directly charges, procured his defeat, by fraud and corruption He congratulates himself on the quality of the votes he received, having been supported, we suppose, by the Polka Dancing, kid glbves and silk stocking gentry of the city. -He hou!d remember, that in this democratic country of ours, the success of all political aspirants de pends upon the number of their political sup porters und not upon their quality. Mr. Gayarre's fate is that of all independent candidates, and his defeat is we have.no doubt due to the fact that he did Uot receive votes enough. .

Under this head, that, able and influential paper, the Richmond Enquirer, has an excel lent article, showing, with most unmistakable plainness, the evident and decided doctrines which do, and w ill, shape the courso of the present administration. The grand starling point aiubgoverningideu will be most eminent ly the doctrine of State Rights such State Rights as have been preached and practiced by such men as Jefferson, Madison and oth ers, in former times, and by Jell' Davis and the organs of the State rights party in Missis sippi in latter davs. -The doctrines against which such a crusade was preitched by design ing demagogues in this State but a few years since, which somewould Taiu believe, and shud der whilo they believed, must effectually ruin the country, damn the Constitution, and ren der our fruitful hills and smiling plains but a dreary wilderness, a howling waste of wild beasts and denjons we say this doctrine is now the sheet anchor of an Administration which assumed the reins of Government - y a more universal and more nearly unanimous voice ofthe whole people than any ever before The Pros dent nobly and boldly affirms it, de clares it will be maintained as the only true method of rightly maintaining the Constitu tion and practicing the views of tho framers of that instrument.' The following extract, from the message, speaks for itself, and speaks plainly enough for the comprehension, evcn,of so-called Union whigsof (he strictest sec! "I am deeplv sensible of the immense re sponsibility which the present magnitude of the republic and the diversity and multiplicity of its iuterests, devolves inn in me ; the alio viation of which, so far as relates to the im mediate conduct of the puMic business is, first, in my reliance on the widom and patriotism of the two houses of Congress ; and second ly, in the directions afforded me by the prin ciples of public policy, uflirmed by our fathers of the epoch of 1798, sanctioned by long ex perience, and consecrated anew bv the over whelming voice of the people of the United States. " Recurring to these principles, which con stitute the organic basis of union, we perceive that, vast as are the functions and duties of the General Government, vested in or entrust ed to its three great departments, the legisla tive, executive and judicial, yet the substantive power, the popular force, and the largo eapa-J cities tor social and materu'l development, ex ist in the respective States, which, nil being of themselves well constituted Republics, as they preceded, so. they alone are capable of main taining and perpetuating the American Union. The Federal Government has its appropriate line of action in the specific and limited pow ers conferred on it by the Constitution, chieflv as to those things in which the States have a common interest in their relations to one an other and to foreign Governments; while the great mass of interests which belong to culti vated men, the ordinary business of life, the springs of industry, all the diversifh-d person al and domestic affairs of society, rest securely upon the general reserved powers of thejveo ple of the several States. There is the effec tive democracy of the nation, and there the vital essence of its greatness." The following is the article from the En quirer spoken of above : Within tho last quarter century, the power of the Federal Government has been immense ly aggrandized by, usurpation of sovereign rights of the States. This tendency towards tho centralization and consolidation of the political power which a just theory of our sys tem of government would distribnte among the States, has been deplored by Democrats of the achool of Jefferson and Madison ; but they have not been able to arrest the move ment ' They have made a gallant stand for State rights, but without success. The per version of the constitution and -the aggrandize ment of the Federal Government made such rapid progress, that some speedy end success ful resistance became absolutely essential, un less the States mean to surrender their sover eignty and to become dependant satellites of central power. This resistance of State Rights Democracy resolved to make in the Presidential election of 1852. They resolved that the resolutions of '98 and '09 should be incorporated into tho platform of the party, and that a candidate, should be presented" of whose devotion to State Rights no suspicion could be felt They were successful on both issues. The princi ples of Jefferson and Miwlisou were re-asserted bv the Baltimore Convention, and Franklin Pierce, a consistent aud zealous disciple of the State Rights school, was nominated for the Presidency. This was all the work of State Rights Dem ocrats. The platform was a State Righto tri umph the nomination was a State Frights triumph. The election of Mr. Pierco was accomplish ed mainly through the instrumentality of State Rights Democrats; und they looked with confidence to him for the vindication of their principles. Tho proffer of the first place in his Cabinet to the most eminent champion of State Rights, since the death of Calhoun, gave assurance, that President Pierce would not disappoint the hopes of his friends. We have now in his first Message, to Congress tho most authoritative aud satisfactory justi fication of the confidence which State Rights Democrats reposed in Mr. Pierre, aud the best guaranty of his devotion to their princi ple. We find the resolutions of '98 and '99 are not barren " abstractions," but that they constitute the creed in accordance with which the; policy of the Administration is to be de termined. We hear again from the Federal Executivej a declaration of allegiance to the principle of strict-construction, and Suite Sov ereignty, for which the disciples of the Vitgin ia School, have contended since the remarka ble era of '98. We hear the President of the United States avow his purpose to resist tho encroachments of Federal power, and to con strue the constitution in the spirit of Madison, We hear him conjure Congress to respect the rights of tho States, and to abstain from the exercise of any doubtful principle of Federal power. And his opinions are not expressed only in general declamation, lie brings his principles to biron practical issues, and pro poses to carry them out in practical legislation. r Slavery of the Press. The person who penned the following deserves a pension. They are our sentiments. None know the drudgery attendant upon the publication of a -newspa per except those w ho have had experience. The writer says : , "I know of no slavery upon earth like that attendant upon uew'spaper life, wheth er it be as directors or subordinates. Your task is never ended, your Tosponsibilty never secured ; tho last day's work is forgotten at tho close of the day on which it appears, and the dragon of to-morrow waits open-mouthed to "devour your thoughts, and snap up one morsel more of your vexed existence. Be as successful as it is in the nature of things to be; be indifferent to praise and lion-hearted to blame ; still will tho human frame wear out before its time, and your body, if not your mind, exhibit some symptoms of dry rot."
