MERRY CHRISTMAS!—Monday was "a
pet day," so bright and beautiful that its
ger ial air seemed a special gift to heighten
the joyousness of the festival. Our streets
were vocal with the shouts of merry young - 7
stern, while we regret to say also that the
day was .marred by not a few scenes of
drunkenness and disorder.. Family gather
ings and luxurious feasts' *ere of Course the
Order of the day. 'There were also several
demonstrations and - exhibitions of a public
kind. At our newly opened "Old Drury,''
(for our progessive borough boasts of a
Madre just now) there was an afternoon and
evening exhibition. At the Garrison the
soldiers partook of a grand dinner and in
the evening made a brilliant illumination of
their quarters. In the evening an interest
ing exhibition by the pupils of the Sunday
School of the Lutheran Church took place.
A large audience was in attendance and the
youthful speakers acquitted-themselves-with
great credit. Thus another happy Christmas
has vanished into the past, but many a
future hour will be gladdened by its joyous
—Arrangements have been made by the
"Musical Union" of Harrisburg for a Mcsu:At.
FESTIVAL, to come off in that place early in
next month. The success of the first "Con
vention" at Harrisburg, held iu the fall of
'53, far exceeded the anticipations of its
projectors, and many ladies and gentlemen
of o \t( . borough will recall waft: plenittiillie
entertaituttents of that occasiou—tbe pleas
ing and instructive lectures of Professors
Johnson and Frost, and the charming voice
of Miss Smith, who assisted them. We learn
that Professors. J. and F., with Miss Smith,
will again be present, and they have added
to their company Miss S. E. Whitehouse, a
vocalist commended in the highest terms by
the eastern papers.
In addition to the musical talent of Har
risburg, it is expected that Carlisle, Lancas
ter, York, Gettysburg, Chambersburg, and
all our neighbor cities and. towns will be well
represented. The committee extend a cor
dial invitation to all lovers of song, and we
trust that our town will send a goodly num
ber of fine voices to add to the enjoyment of
the Festival.
The meetings will commence on Tuesday,
the ninth of January, and continue about
one week, in the course of which several
public performances will be given.
ScnooL CONVENTION.—A convention
composed of School Directors, Teachers and
others from the various districts of the
county, was held in our borough last week,
continuing from Thursday to Saturday. The
attendance was large from the country dis
tricts, but a good deal of disappointment .
was felt at the lack Of interest manifested by
the great body of our citizens in the proceed
ings. We regretted this, as the various ad
dresses, discussions and illustrations of modes
of teaching, &c., were exceedingly interest
ing and instructive. During the sessions of
the convention addresses were delivered by_
T. H. Bunnows, Esq., of Lati'easter, editor
of the "School Journal," President CoLLINs,
of Dickinson College, Mr. SHELLY, the
County Superintendent, and others. No reL
port has been furnished us, but we hope some
sketch of the proceedings will be prepared
for publication.
. The friends of Common Schools have
reason to congratulate themselves upon the
judicious selection of a Buperintendant of
Common Schools for this county. - Since the
election of Mr. SHELL; new life,and energy
has been infused into the School system of
this county. Careful examinations of the
qualifications of teachers are now made, the
schools are regularly visited by the Superin
tendaut; and a harmonious and active co
operation of Directors and Teachers secured
which cannot fail to work good results. Al
ready the tenehers of. the county feel, and re
joice in the new interest which has been
awakened. ,The apprehensions which ~,;ere
felt by many in relation to the new otligof
County Superintendent are entirely dispelled,
latipt hut fly c frrinilii eirrit.
and mainly by the judicious course which
that- officer has pursued.
UNEON LBCTURES.—The third of -- The
Union Fire Company's course was delivered
on Thursday evening last before a large au-,
dience by LEMUEL. Tom), Esq. Subject—" Our
Age." We were unable to be present, but
learn that the lecture • was tnost eloquent.
and interesting, securing the fixed :Men•
tion of those 'who, heard it. The next lec
ture will be delivered by the Rev. Jons
McChni-rocx. We have not learned the
subject. •! •
Monday Evening, Dec, 18th, 185-1- The sub
ject adopted at the-last meeting, as the ques
tion for debate. this evening, viz: "That the
annexation of territory is averse to the best
interests of the Union," was taken up and
discussed. John Lee and Dr. Win. G. My
ers appeared in the Affirmative, and Geo. W.
Leidigh. and Jas. Lee in the Negative. The
decision of the Judges was given in favor Rf
the Affirmative.
On motion of Emanuel Line, the follow
ing was adopted for 'discussion, viz: "Re
solved, That a law prohibiting the manufac
ture and sale of spirituous liquors, ara - bev:
crage, would be detrimental to the agricul
tural interests of the corn Mon wealth." Messrs.
Thomas bee, jr., John Fishburn, jr., and
John Scoby, were appointed Judges by the
President, to decide upon the above subject.

December, a treaty of alliance was signed
at Vienna, between Austria, France, and
England, of which it was said that the pro
visions were, first, that Austria regards the
violation of the Turkish territories as war

to enable the Turks to resume offensive
operations; thirdly, that on the demand of

They are, that the Five Powers shall be a
joint protectorate for the Christian popula
tion of Turkey, and over the Principalities,
subject to existing Russian treaties; the Tree
navigation of the Danube shall he conceded,
and the revision of the treaty of 1811. As
regards Prussia, it is stated that the King
has determined to unite in the treaty with.

There is no news whatever of importance
from the seat oC war. Frequent- sorties are
recorded, and the Russians were generally
repulsed without much damage on either
side. The allies were continually receiving

strengthening their positions. •
The main interest of the news is centered

will soon publish a letter in reply to the

truthfulness, that it wopld not be .wonderful
if. it were generally credited. Let it be so
