For the Carolinian.
Meeting of the Bacchanalian Club for the pur
pose of celebrating Christmas appropriately.'
The Meeting was called to order by a mo
tion made by Mr Vagus, who moved that the
Hon. Mr Profligatus take . the Chair, The
motion was -agreed to. The Chairman arose
and said1:
"Gentlemen. King Bacchus will be here in
a few minutes : you know whom I mean, Ar
gutus the great. But gentlemen, I must ex
press to you my profound thanks, for the very
deserved compliment you have conferred on me
by making me president of your meeting, jJet
the eartli quake and the Ocean tremble, and
let the immensity of space shower down on u?
its curse generally but I will never desert
you. . . .. ' ' . I
I am one of the noblest works of mankind-
and honest man,' 'and if I don't discharge tjfe
duties of this meeting correctly, why then some
of you tell me of it, that's all.
Here t lie president took his seat amid a
loud tall fur a treat from the chair. Vagus
moved that the mectijig proceed to business.
He was decidedly in favor of the treat, but
thought there were other gentlemeu present
who would'to stand treat, and! he poped
the members of the society wouldj prterye
order until all could be heard, and then all
would have a grand glorification The treit
was suspended, for a short time only.
Sarscullotes was then loudly called for.
Sarsculottes said Mr President, I don't spe
the necessity; for all this fuss and feathersjif
yon are going to do any thing, why don't ypu
do it ? that's the question. My notion is tip's
-relative to this meeting if a pigeon kills a
pigeon, let him always hide the feathers ; thaj-'s
my doctrine : and if you eat snu-ke, hide the
skin ; for, if you dont, some other snake migh
come along and .see the' skin and kick up a. fuss
til-out it. (Loud calls for drinks.) The speaker
being interrupted, 'became confused and to6k
his sent. ' " !
Sanseouei, a brother of Sauscullotts, Was
next called for, but being very free and easy
(dead drunk) declined speaking. 1
Shanghai -attempted to make a very few re
marks, but was so tall, thai the society Vetoed
spcakablcs, and invited him to hand down Ids
s-peech with a little nutmeg:
The President then said there were some res
olutions, in the house he would he glad to hear
from. (Cries of "the resolutions.'5) f
ignoramus, Ksq., arose amid enthusiastic
shouts and said: I
Misser President, Pse been
for some time 'thout sayiu
looken on here
anything but l
have got some"t'.solutions Inyi guiue to offer
to this meetin. .
The 1st preamble I am guiu to offer is this:
Wharas, There is a mighty fuss kicked tip
about us what wants to take a dram now and
tli en. ' J
2nd Wharas, I think people had a darned
sight butter tend to their own bizrtess than to
be troublin us good sitizens. ,
Tharfore, Resolved That whoever wants a
dram, will take it by himself) if he feels like (t,
or otherwise. I
Resolved, That when man is axed to driuV
he will drink in course. J
In sportiu these I might say a good deal
Mr President : but I wont, cause I dont thitk
it beariu on the pint in view. f
Ihe resolutions Were unanimously adopted,!
Incomes Jiacchus. I
President "Here Bacchus take this seat If
Bacchus Well hie, boys what hie, you qui

President "We assure you sir, that we hate
the most profound regard for you. The SuL
Moon ayd Stars in all their brilliancy migjU
darken the universe, before we would deign fo
forsake you or cease to do you homage."
Bacchus "All hie, right boys what haVe
you got to drink? come up boys til of you."
Cries "We'll all driiik with vou." I
The meeting then adjourned to Mike Slo-
can's grocery en masse, where the day was rc
li -udy and ai propriately celebrated. xf

A bFUMo.v. It hardly stems possible tha'J.
the subjoined specimen of "Pulpit exercise in
Texas" can he'authentie; and yet we are inform
ed by a brother Ktlftor in that region, that lit
is entirely true, he himself having heard it det
Iveied. "One of those zealous preachers whp
draw illstration from everything, and suffer uh
opportunity to pass at all admitting of a niorf
sal, arrived at his log church one morning quit!
late, and took for his text: "JIa reel not:" and
then went on in the following strain, in his pel!.' half singing voice: "My friendi
th- scripture sirs, 'marvel not.' and hence it ii
wrong to mnreLs-er. As I was riding along

happened to look up, and I seen a parcel o '
boys .playing .marvels-er There Was a leait

Now, what is the manner and matter of this
preacher? The inquiring visitor sees a shoii,
square-built man enter, with a 'round, palfil
looking face, relieved, however, by expressive
dark eyes and a profusion of black hair parted
in the middle. His reading -and prayer1-. iin
which there is nothings ?erZskgula niilcslt
be a " familiarity SugiabFiif"trw
which he addresses the Throne of Gi;ice, h:e
begins his sermon. If it have reference to the
full of Adam and expiation. of sin through fait i
in Jesus Christ, he lets his 'audience know, in
jovial kind of tone, that he is about to amuse
them. lie looks intently to the farthest cornej
of the house, and exclaims " Holloa, Adam ,!
where art thou, Adam ?" In the prestiinption
that Adam is afraid to face such a congregation
in answer to such a summons, he makes the
father of mankind reply tremulously,,IIere ami
I; what wonldst thou?" " What would I ?'j
he indignantly rejoins, "I would know what!
you have done, Adam, that we are all damned
through you? Adam makes a speech. The
preacher answers him. Adam has a rejoinder;
the preacher another. Adam is greatly abash
ed, and has decidedly' the worst of the argument,
and is told,; in the slang of the tap-room, " I
thought I should make him sing small." Then
in jolly, rollicking, bantering style, he comforts
Adam thus, 'Ah never mind, never mind, man;
we have a new Adam, we have Christ instead
of you," &e. ; Then he brings the Trinity on
the platform, and holds colloquy with - them.
In like manner he introduces prophets, apostles
and alL other scriptural personages." He makes
the Saviour and Mary Mg3alen hold conver
sation, the preacher imitating the tones of a
timid, repentant woman. And this it is which
the tens of thousands of the metropolitan popu
lation are crowding, even nnto death, to hear,
to grieve at or to approve, by occasional bursts
of laughter or floods of tears. He' gives scenes

Railroad Accident
The Union and Spartanburg train met with
a serious accident last Snnday a few miles above
Ashford's ferry by which a number of passen
gers were more'or less injured, some very severe
ly. Mr Price, of North Carolina, is danger
ously wounded. The passenger car was thrown
from the track down an embankment someEfty;
feet, rolling over three times and becoming a
perfect wreck. It is a miracle that all were
not killed.
g? We recommend the "verse" below to
our poetical contributors as a "version of our
own aversion to versifiers. There seems to be
a universal and perverse design to reverse the
order of poetical things.'or you may inverse the
j converse of the proposition. There'd'a pun
meat for vou: .
'.To win the maid the poet tries,
And sometimes writes to Julia's eyes;
She likes a verse but crnel whim,
She still appears a-versk tdhirii.,,
XST The -Asheville Spectator, one of thes-3
rftah!il custodians of American liberties, but
for whose sleepless vigilance and paternal guar

laid bare a conspiracy on the part of James

The Legislature
Is under adjournment uutil the first of Jcnu-
ury. There is any amount of business before it
yet; and what may be the length of the sess'oa
' it is impossible to tell. As to the Western
Railroad Bill, we are afraid to cherish a hee:
but trusting to the wisdom, fairness and justice
of the Legislature, we look forward to its pas
sage or the defeat of every other internal im
provement bill.
Not that we are ungenerous or would be tir
just. But if the ciaims of Fayetteville are set
