if AILY PRESS. POKTLAN 1> Tucsday Morning. December 25,1866. | ^’To-lay being a Uoliday.no paper will be issued from this otlice to-morrow morning. Merry C'liriwlmna. Christmas is the Thanksgiving day of the Old World, neglected by our Puritan an cestors because of its association with Popery, but more and more asserting its claims upon their descendants as the Papal system shrinks (run* year to year to less formidable di mensions. What the Turkey is to Thanks giving that is Plum Pudding to Christmas. There is no proper observance of the festivities m tlie day without plum pudding. An ancient .uid usually authentic work speaks indeed of a •• Christmas pie,” but there is room to suspect that the exigency of rhyme overcame for once i !.c veracious scruples of Mother Goose: “Little Jock Horner Sat in tlie corner, Eating a Christmas pie; He stuck in Uis thumb And pulled out a pluui, Crying, What a great boy am I!” “ Christmas pudding" no doubt was written tirst, and afterward changed to “pie,” because no rhyme to puudikh can lie found in the p'nglisli language. We have a shrewd suspi cion that “thumb” instead of “Unger” is used in the next line for the same good reason. Christmas day is a great day for the doctors. The plum pudding when made secundum ar tem is a miracle oi indigestibility. As concoct ed in Kngland it is of the shape and very neatly of the consistency of a cannon ball. Considering the plums, it might be defined to he a comestible spherical case shot. Nor is the pudding all that poor little Jack Horner has to contend with. Santa Clans is in league with the whole family against him. That be nevolent but rather Injudicious goblin not only fills Master Horner's stockings with toys, hut crowds In a mass of painted candy and variegated sweetmeats, which the urchin dis poses of heforo dinner and comes up to the grand encounter in a very unsatisfactory con dition. Tito case shot completes his discotn fiture, and by twelve midnight the miserable physician is in request: “No rost tilt mom when youth and pudding meet,”— the rest of the quotation is inappropriate. Christinas day is as good a day as Thanks giving or any other, to remember the poor. It is a good day to send a ton of coal, or a barrel of llour, or apples, or in fact almost anything useful, to somebody who needs it and can't get it. It is a good day to forgive your ene mies, and if we have any we hereby forgive them—for the nonce. On this day'we will not advert to some ]shuts of political diilerence between ourselves and the Argus. On this day we will not reply to that “withering” ar ticle in the Star. In a political and Pickwick ian sense, we recognise these journals as ene mies. In a political and Pickwickian sense we forgive them—understanding that such forgiveness extends only to Thursday morn ing, on and after which we intend to chastise them severely. To all to whom these presents come, wo send greeting; to all we wish a merry Christa tnas and many; and to all, we hope, will come some remembrance of the great event which gives to this day its especial significance and solemnity. “This is the mouth,” says Milton: “This is Lhe Month, anil ibis tbc happy morn, Wherein toe Son ol‘ Heaven’s Eternal Kin?, Of wedded Maid and Virgin mother born, Our groat redemption from above did bring.” Tlie thought of that wonderful life which began at Bethlehem so long ago, ought to mingle with the merry-making without mar ring it. Mr. Pewifnilfn on Hoeoniarucllon. During the debate iu the Senate last week, on the bill for the admission of Nebraska with a constitution excluding negroes from tlie polls, the discussion took a wide rango. Mr. Doolit tle took occasion to present tlio argument that by submitting the constitutional amendment to the legislatures of tlie unrepresented States for their ratification Congress lias acknowledg ed their authority to perforin an act of the highest importance, and consequently cannot logically deny their right to elect and send Scuators to Washington. To this Mr. Fessen den replied that Congress has not acknowledg ed any .such authority. The so-called legisla tures of tlie unrepresented Slates may assume to act upon the amendment, just as the inhab itants of a Territory may call a convention and assume to form a State, constitution; hut it rests finally with Congress to say whether such action is to ho accepted and ratified. There are two parties to tlie compact by which any State assumes its place in the Union—the State seeking admission, and Congress repre senting tlie States already admitted. The con sent of both parties is necessary to the validi ty of the compact. In tlie rebellious States no constitutional governments were left in exist ence at the close of the war. So far, they were -reduced to tlie condition of Territories. Their ^governments were to he re-orgauizod by re newing the compact between them and the - States represented in Congress. The amend “jTfaeut was proposed by Congress as an essential l feature of the new compact; hut even after adopting tlio amendment, the rebellious Slates * ' could claim no right, until their so-called leg islatures should bo recognized by Congress.— Their proceedings for the present are prelim inary. If Congress, considering wliat is due to tlie country, is satisfied with these proceed ings and chooses to sanction them, the compact will be complete and binding upon both par lies, and not before. These opinions are in perfect harmony with ail which Mr. Fessenden has said or done, : i lice tlie rebellion ceased. lie lias constantly held and repeatedly declared that the insur geuU forfeited all their rights in the Union.— He has also said, and no one can doubt it, that he is as desirous as any man to see the end of this unhappy controversy, and that he will not be too stringent as to conditions, provided tlie Union is secured against a recurrence of such a disaster as we have just suffered. Not be cause tlie doctrines are new but because they are unchanged, because they are proof against tile fallacy maintained by Mr. Doolittle, be cause their ruassertion by irWenator holding so commanding a position gives assurance, if any were needed, that they will prevail, and lic eause he deals now as always with plain facts and not at all with theories, Mr. Fessenden’s remarks will be read as they werS heard with great interest and close attention. Arrow*!? Kmery. it appears that while Canada Is suffering under a severe fit of depression, as a result of the over-production of her oil mines, and in dulging a gentle mania over the recent discov ery of gold at Madoc, a discovery has been made in Maine more valuable to a manufac turing people than petroleum or gold. Arro *r sic island lies iu the Kennebec river, opposite to the city of Bath. The weather-beaten rocks which everywhere crop out on the northern part of the island rise in parallel ridges mark ed by peculiar veins stained by oxide of iron in such a manner as to suggest the presence of iron ore iu the vicinity A company was ac tually formed, with a capital of $‘200,000, to work these veins for iron. The material proves to be far more valuable than iron, and is now finding an extensive market under the name of Arrowsic emery. The value of the mineral has been fully tested by numerous machinists, who pronounce it equal or superior to the best Turkish emery. Its hard uess is proved by tlioff difficulties experienced in working it; fifty drills were required on one occasion in drilling a hole eight inches deep, and the jaw plates of the crusher have to be renewed every two days, though made of the hardest chilled Frankliu ite iron. The importance of this discovery will appear when it is considered that the entire emery pro duction of Asia Minor and the Grecian Archi pelago is monopolized by two firms, one iu Smyrna, the other in Loudon, which by limit ing the supply have hitherto maintained their own piiccs. The annual consumption in the United States, by machinists and glass cutters, amounts to over 1500 tons. The advantage of a Mipjdy in our own country, at a point easily accessible by railroad and by water, is too obvi ous to dwell upon. It relieves ns at once of a heavy tax heretofore paid to England for ground emery, emery cloth and emery wheels manufactured from a raw material which her own soil does not furnish. Iu case of war with any European nation, our supply from the Eastern continent would have been cut off at the very time when the increased manufac ture of arms would have rendered the article almost indispensable. If the Arrowsic mines prove as productive as seems quite likely, they will relieve us from present inconvenience and serious prospective embarrassment. The ft''rt-rilint-iiKtiirenu* REPLY TO T1IB CHARGE AGAINST ITS MANAGE MENT. Gen. Howard’s letter to tlic President, iu re ply to the investigation of the Frcedmen s Bu reau by Gens. Stecdman and Fullerton, dated August 23, lWifi, is h’Ug and thorough. We quote the more important passages: I now come to by far the most important part of what the inspectors have to say—the summing up of their conclusions after four mouths’ inspection of Bureau, iu which they assert that • there is an entire absence of sys tem or uniformity in its constitution.” They have never asked me for u word of informa tion with reference to records, reports and or ders. They have made no examination of my office, and asked no reason for any action ta ken. The records or information they desired that could not be found in the offices of the South may be hero. * What would be the re sult if they should make a general inspection of the Quartermaster, Commissary, or other Department in the same way? Those officers who have been relieved, or were beyond their reach, are supposed to have tnade improper dispositions ot all records or papers connected witn their offices. . ... There is not a Bureau in Washington with a more complete set of reports, books and records, &c., than can be produced at this office lor in spection at any time. They attempt to prove their assertion by the statement that m one State its officers exercised judicial powers; in one ad joiuing all cases are referred to civil au thorities, while in a third State Bureau officers collect the cases and turn them over to milita ry courts. Their own inspection rex>orta will refute this. In the States of Kentucky,Ten nessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, r lori da, Virginia ana North Carolina, Bureau agents do not exercise judicial powers of any kind, and in the other States the power exercised by the officers of the Bureau is modified by the l’eeliugs and conduct of the people toward the freedmen. They admit there is groat differ ence in this feeling of whites towards the blacks. What other princiiile more uniform is it possible to adopt than to regulate the power of agents of the Bureau by the disposition and conduct of the people, favoring them as they approximate equal justice? The inspectors declare that ‘‘the Bureau has been, in the aggregate, xiroductive of more harm than good,” and give as their reasons, substantially, the reliance upon it of the ne groes and their consequent distrust ot the property-holders, and the provocation ot espi onage, creating mutual suspicion and bitter ness. , . .. , 1 deny t he whole statement. It is not lound ed upon fact but ux>on theories constantly put forth by the enemies of good order.; A few bad agents have been sent, and have, doubtles% done much liarm, yet this. Bureau agency has been mediatorial and pacific as a whole. It has relieved this very suspicion and bitternew that existed when it was first organized. Riots, murders and wicked deeds have recently sprung up, but these are iu no way initiated or recognized by the officers of the Government 1 claim, and the facts will prove it, that the Bureau has labored successfully to elcvate wages and defend the interests of the lreed" men in their contracts, being constantly re sisted by the inertia of the peculiar opinions of Southern prox>erty-holders. The evils in the contracts will disapx>ear just as soon as free la bor shall have a permanent foothold under the necessary protection of equal laws properly executed. From the course pursued by the Inspectors I suspect the object of the inspection, as they understood it, was to bring the Freed men’s Bureau into contempt before the country, and to do this they have endeavored to prove mal administration. UH‘ contrary, i am preparcu to prove u> yourself orauy other caudal uiiud, that 1 have fulfilled the trust you committed to me, with care, conscientiousness and faitlifiiluessjlhave ol>eyed your orders and instructions, making no other objections than those I made to your self and the Secretary of War; that my system has been a thorough one, and as complete and uniform as was possible in an institution intended to he temporary and to meet a transient necessity. Could the Freedman's Bureau be now administered with your full and hearty sanction, and with the co-operation ot the other branches of the Government, it would fulfill the objects of its creation in a short time, and he made, while it existed, to conduce to industry, enlightenment and jus tice tor all classes of the people. The work committed to it may doubtless ho done by the army, without a bureau,-6111 not with much less expense. I'ef, if the Government would keep good faith with its new-made citizens, some sort of a United States agency must he maintained in the Southern Stales until socie ty shall have become more settled that it now is. Et tu Brute!—One by one Mr. Jolinsou’s friends and supporters are deserting his colors. Raymond and Beecher and Custar and others iiave fallen away one after another, till the President has hut a scanty “following.” The Loudon Tillies lias been the most ardent of his panegyrists, never tired of extolling him for the “firmness ami decision” with which he sus tained the “constitutional rights" of the rebels, and resisted the “dangerous and unjustifiable tendencies of a radical Congress.” But the Times is always swift to desert the failing cause and this is the way that consistent newspaper talks about Mr. Johnson’s last message: The renewed adhesion of President Johnson to his own reconstruction policy, in spite the recent elections, is better calculated to excite surprise than admiration. It is always danger ous to interpret the political symptoms of for eign countries with too much confidence, hut, so far as anything can he known about public opinion in America, it is certain that a decisive verdict against the President, and in favor of the Constitutional Amendment, has been re corded by the American people. The issue had been fairly before them fur ninny months and the result is that the Republicans command a majority so overwhelming as to render the Presidential veto quite nugatory. There is no disgrace in bowing to necessity, and if ever there was a political necessity it is surely that which Mr. Johnson is still inflexibly resisting. There is no parallel between such resistance and the successful opposition of the King of Prussia to the rejection hv the Chambers of his scheme for the reorganization of the army. X he King of Prussia assumes to hold his crown by Di vine right, and, though philosophers may deride the claim, the mass of his subjects tolerate it. President Johnson, on the contrary, neither is nor professes to be any more than a public ser vant.. 1 n the messages justifying his veto, and in all his subsequent addresses, he has appeal ed from Congress to the great body of electors, and to that appeal the November elections are the response. They are accepted by the South as an irrevocable sentence ot disfranchisement upon these States which refuse the conditions dictated by the North, and the only escape from the dilemma which his friends can sug gest is, that the President should coerce Con gress by the naval and military force at bis command. Yet we are informed that he actu ally urges this laxly, exasperated by his late attacks upon it, and flushed with victory upon victory, to think better of the whole matter and take his advice about it. Obstinacy car ried to this pitch is not without an element of sublimity; but after all statesmanship must be measured by a practical standard. Popes are the only rulers who can summon legions of angels to defend them against the inevitable without forfeiting a character for worldly wis dom, and of all rulers elected Presidents are those who have least right and the least power to defy the yopularwill. Conundrums. Some of the conundrums prop mm led at the Universalist festival at Westbrook the other night, were very good.— We give a specimen or two: What did the potter say to the clay? Be-ware. What answer made the clay? I’ll be burnt firHt. What is the difference between a colored pocket handerchief and the rebel flag? One is a bandanna and the other a damn banner. Why is Jeff. Davis like a man who has dis posed of all his potatoes? Because lie’s seld-em out. What is that which no jierson wants, which if any person has he would not part with for untold wealth? A bald head. Wfiy is Westbrook Seminary like a frog? Because it shows signs of vitality when its head is off Why is a boy throwiug stones at some dogs like the ocean? Because he is rocking the barks. Garibaldi and the Cretans.—Our foreign exchanges say that the Garibaldian legiona ries, finding their occupation gone in Italy, are turning their attention toward the assistance of the Christians of the Levant. A detach ment lias already reached Syra, a larger body has landed on tho Pirtcns, and the General himself lias offered his sword to the Athens committee. The leiter in which this offer was made, says: 1 have written to Dolfl to see what arms we have; whatever they may betheysliall be all placed at your disposal. Oh, how I wish to do something for those poor Cretans! 1 am in despair at being reduced to idleness. I belong to your cause. I shall be there, if I am called. —even though I come inaba. kct. As much as possible foment diversions on toe mainland, and dispose of me always. This letter was followed by a gift of six hun dred rifles, which are probably only a begin ning, and the General will in all probability follow them at an early date. The IStorj- of «!•«’ Noses. FROM LAOOULAYE's “FAIRY BOOK.” At Dewitz, in the neighborhood of Prague, there once lived a rich and whimsical old farm er who had a beautiful daughter. The students ot Prague, of whom thero were at that time twenty-five thousand, often walked in the di rection of Dewitz, and more than one of them offered to follow the plough in hdpes of becom ing the son-in-law of the farmer. The first condition that the cunning peasant set on each new servant was this: “I engage you,” ho would say, “for a year, that is; till the cuckoo sings the return of spring; but if, from uow till then, you say once that you are not satisfied, I will cut oft' your nose. I give you the same right over me,” he added laughing. And he did as he said. Prague was full ol students with their nose glued on, which did not pre vent an ugly scar, and, still less, bad jokes.— To return from the farm disfigured iiiid ridicul ed was well calculated to cool the warmest passion. A young man by the name of Coranda, some what ungainly in manner, but cool, adroit and cunniugf which are not bad aids in making one’s fortune, took it in his head to try the ad venture. The farmer received him with his usual good nature, aud, the bargain made, sent him to the field to work. At breaklast time the other servants were called but good care was taken to forget Coranda. At dinner it was the same. Coranda gave lumsell no troub le about it. He went to the house, aud, while the farmer’s wife was feeding the chickens, un hooked an enormous ham from the kitchen rafters, took a huge loaf from the clipboard, and went back to the fields to dine and take a nap. “Are you satisfied?” asked the farmer when he returned at night. ... “Perfectly satisfied,” said Coranda;! have dined better than you, have.” At that instant the farmer’s wife came rusli in, crying that her ham was gone. Coranda laughed aud the farmer turned pale. “Are you not satisfied?” asked Coranda. “A ham is only a ham,” answered his mas ter. “Such a trine does not trouble me.” But after that time he took good care not to leave the student lasting. Sunday came. The farmer and his wife seated themselves in the wagon to go to church saying to Coranda, “It is your business to cook the dinner. Cut up the piece of meat you see yonder, with onions, carrots, leeks and pars ley, and lioil them all together in the great pot over the kitchen fire.” ‘’Veryiwell,” answered Coranda. There was a little pet dog at the farm house by the name of Parsley. Coranda killed him, skinned him, cut him up with the meat and vegetables, and put the whole to boil over the kitchen fire. When the farmer’s wife returned she called her favorite; but, alas! she saw noth ing hut a bloody skin hanging by the window. "Wliat have you done?” said she to Corand a. ‘‘What you ordered me, mistress. I have boiled the meat, onions, carrots and leeks, and parsley into the bargain,” “ Wicked wretch!” cried the farmer, “had you the heart to kill the innocent creature that was the joy of the house?” “Are you not satisfied?” said Coranda, tak ing his knife from his pocket. *1 did not say that,” returned the farmer. “A dead dog is nothing but a dead dog.” But ho sighed. A lew days after, the farmer and his wife went to market. Peariug their terrible serv ant, they said to him, “Stay at home, and do exactly as you see others do. “Very well,” said Coranda. There was an old shed in the yard, the iroof of which was falling to pieces. The carpen ters came to repair it and began, as usual, by tearing down the roof. Coranda took a ladder aud mounted the roof of the house, wliicli was quite new. Shingles, laths, nails and tiles, he tore oil' everything, and scattered them all to the winds. When the farmer returned, the house was open to the sky. “Villain!” said he “wliat uow trick have you played me?” “1 have obeyed you, master,” answered Co randa. “You told me to do exactly what I saw others do. Are you not sal isfied ?” Aud he took out his knife. “Satisfied?” returned the farmer, “why should I not be satisfied? A tew shingles more or less will not injnre me.” But he sighed. vr: I.x __ ii. . a-_... n v.:a,. each other that it was high time to get rid of this incarnate demon. As is always the case with sensible people, they never did anything without consulting their daughter, it being the custom in Bohemia to think that children al ways have more wit than their parents. “Father,” said Helen, “X will liide in the great pear tree early in the morning, and call like the cuckoo. You cau telL Corauda that the year is up, since the cuckoo is singing; pay him and send him away” Early in the morning the plaintive cry of the cuckoo was heard through the fields. The farmer seemed surprised. “Well, my hoy, spring has come,” said lie. “Do you hear the cuckoo singing yonder? 1 will pay you, and we will part good friends.” “A cuckoo!” said Coranda, ‘that is a bird which I have always wanted to see.” He ran to the tree and shook it witli all his might, when behold! a young girl fell from the branches, fortunately more frightened than hurt. “Villain!” cried the farmer. “Are you not satisfied ?” said Corauda, open ing his knife. “Wretch! yon kill my daughter, and yov think that I ought to be satisfied, 1 am furi ous. Begone, if you would not die by my haud!” “I will go when I have cut off your nose,” said Coranda. “X have kept my word, do you keep yours.” “Stop!” said the farmer, putting his hand before bis laee; “you will surely let me redeem my nose.” ■ “It depends upon wliat you offer,” said Co randa. “Will yon take ten sheep for it?” “No.” “Ten cows?” “No; I would rather cut off your nose.” And lie sharpened his knife on the door-step. “Father,” said Helen, “the fault was mine; it belongs to me to repair it. Coranda, will you take my hand instead of my father’s nose ?” “Yes'” replied Coranda. “I make one condition," said the young girl. “We will make the same bargain; the first of us that is not satisfied alter marriage shall have his nose cut of!' by the other.” “Good,” replied Coranda. “1 would rather it was the tongue; hut that will come next.” Never was a finer wedding seen at I’ragne, ami never was there a happier household. Co randa and the beautiful Helen were a model pair. The husband and wile were never heard to complain of each other; they loved with drawn swords and, thanks to their ingenious bargain, they kept for long years botli their love and their noses.

Belfast, Me., Nov 27, 1866. During 10 years I grew totally deaf in one ear and so deaf in the other that 1 was unable to hear unless addressd very loudly, and had disagreeable noises in my bead. Was obliged to absent myself trom church aiid society on that account. 1 consulted an eminent physician in Boston without relief, and supposed 1 must always remain deaf, but about two years ago I applied to Dr. Carpenter; after t he application of a course of liis treatment, 1 could hear a watch tick 6 feet from either ear, and my hearing remains perfect. I am 66 years of age, and reside on High street, Bel fast, Maine, where any person can see or hear from me. Mrs. F. A. LEWIS. We have been acquainted with Mrs. Lewis for years and know she was deaf and now hears, and believe the above statement to be correct. REV. C. PALFREY, Pastor of 1st Parish, Belfast. MR. W. M. RUST, Kilitor of “Belfast Age.” [Front the Bangor Whig ff Courier.1 Troy, Me., Oct. 30. Dr. Carpenter, Dear SirOn the 25d ot Feb ruary last, I placed myself under your treatment for Discharge of the Ear, which had continued so long and was so great as to affect my hearing. After ap plying the medicine prescribed by you two months, my ears were entirely well and remain the same. Most Respectfully, Miss SUSAN V. HATHAWAY. BLINDNESS. [ From Maine Farmer. \ In defiance of physicians and all remedies, I suffer ed excruciatingly from Scrofulous Sore Eyes leu years, being frequently confined to a dark room.

[From the Maine Farmer.j I was nearly blind with Scrofulous Sore Eyes four years, being confined to a dark room and snfiering excruciating pain a great portion of the time.

Augusta, Me., Jan., I860. I have been cured of Catarrh in its most disagree able form, of many years’ standing, by Dr. Car (ten ter. I suffered from pains, dullness and tightness in my head, continued discharges, great difficulty iu talking and breathing, felt as if I had a had cold the whole time, and suftered intensely to the great im pairment of my health, and was quite discouraged, for all I had doctored was of no benefit. But thanks to Dr. Carpenter’s skill, l now hnve none ot these troubles. 1 reside in Whitefield, EPHRAIM MARRINER. [From the Maine Farmer.] I sutfered from Catarrh over 20 years. Last winter, when I consulted Dr. Carpenter. I had frequent and copious discharges, a bad cough, and my health so much reduced that, myself and friends were appre hensive of serious consequences ; but Dr. Carpenter cured me. 1 am now well, and free from Catarrh.
