AIIIIMI.VM IJIXC H.'N. New Year's Day. Tlie relebr'lion of the tie imcnccment of the new venr dates from hijrh mitii|uity. The Jews regarded it us the anniversary of Adam's birlh ilar. mill celelir.iteil it with splendid elitertstin- meuts —1\ practice which they imve eonliuucd down to tin- present time. The Unmans nl.o nmile tliifl n holydav, and dedicated' il to .1 si tins with rich and numerous sacriticcs : the newiy clected mapdr.icy entered upon their duties on this day : ail uiidert.ikinp- 1 then commenced were considered .-nrc to terminate favorably : tlie pen ple made each oth« r presents ol pilt dates, tips, and plums : and even the evip: rors rccei\ed liom their sntijccts new year's ptbs. which at a later period it became compulsory to bestow. I'rom the Romans the custom of milking presents on Xcw Year's l*av was borrowed by tlie I hristiaus, bv whom it was lonp retained : bill even in those countries where it lingered loiijfest. in I'ranee and - {Scotland for instance, il is falling ra]iidlv into desuetude, and congratulatory wishes are now iilmost universally substituteil for the more sub stantial present* 4 that were tormeriy couterred, on this day, as marks id iilleetion and c.-decm. The above interesting extract is from Brande's Encyclopedia. AVc acknowl edge the sacrcdness of the time-honored custom, and in obedience thereto we salute our readers, patrons, kind neigh bors and friends, and wish you all a HAPPY XKW YKAU. Let us at thismost interesti 11 g |icriod t nank I 'r< >\ ideiice tor the gifts of health and other numerous blessings which have been so generally enjoyed by the people ot our territory during that year to which we are about bidding "goodbye with many regiets. Jts memory will be dear to us person all v through life. It luaiks the com mencement of the STAXI>AIU», it chron icles the period when we hopetulK ap pealed to your confidence and encour agement, and that appeal \\asnot\atnl\ made. You responded, and gratitude forces upon us the pleasant duty to cov et for each of you (Soil's choicest bless ings. At this period, so proper for such an act, we renew our resolves to labor more zealously for our own ad vancement, trusting thereby to do our share in benefitting our race, in iinprov in" the condition ot men, and in ele\,it ft ing society. Old Yet ir! we regret to part with von. Associations formed,clingdcarly to our memory, and we deplore to chronicle that soon you mu,st be reck oned with the past and gone. May the next one have as many claims upon the kindlv feelings of our readers as the de parted one has upon our affections. Xew Year to us is a memorable oc casion. Were we all to live as we should, review of the past would not provoke gloom. To us it is a period of quiet self-examination. We love to dwell on the past— we love to review what has been done—during the eventful passage of one of these periods, noting the fact that so much of our mission on earth has been closed, what have we ac complished ot the labor allotted tons . Have the talents committed to our care been properly used? Have we benefitted our fellows, or have we per formed any act of usefulness entitling us to remembrance in the future, or to the gratitude of the present? If we have idled our time, neglected our call ing, let us resolve to do differently. Let the coming year be a new year in deed in our voyage of life. Few there are, if any, who have not during the departing period lost some near audi dear friend or relative, transferred from this scene to the world that has no end. If wo loved them while «>»» earth, 1)0 it ■ our struggle hereafter so to live as tosc- j cure their approbation as they watch , ourevcrv move through life's chequered scene, from their spirit homes. In the , passing pleasures ot the day wo so grate- j fully and jovously commemorate, while driving to make all happy around us by attesting our ownsineerc enjoyment! at seeing tliein happy, let us briefly de vote ourselves to a candid self-examin ation, and resolve to be better men. j Let us remember that life is uncertain,! ond that all of us have to die. Ito it; our duty, then, onthe c aning anniver sary so to mould ottr resolutions of fu ture life ♦hat we may not hereafter re pine a life wasted,a fallingshort in any of the works, the accomplishment of which was our destined mission during our earthly sojourn. In reviewing the history of the past year, thrilling events have taken place worthv of admiration of every- friend of human rights. What American does not thank Heaven with holy fervor for the triumphant success of that soldier of liberty, the immortal (Saribaldi. Who of us docs not rejoice that his ar dent efforts in behalf of popular free dom have shaken the despotism of Eu rope V In his glorious success we see ; i .peril v: j proach to that halcyon time which we so ardently anticipate, when all mankind sliall be blest with liberal •■•ovenline:it ami free institutions. With proud satisfaction wo turn to our national history. au<l in chronicling the election of AUUAIIAM LIXCOI.X Pres ident of the I'nited States, we record the rebuke hy the people of corruption in high places..their hearty condemna tion (if an Administration which lias exerted a!l its energies to convert free Territories into slave States,against the expressed will of the people residing in those Territories. l»y that election have they asserted that Kansas perse cuted, maligned, down-trodden and op pressed, of right ought to he iiiiinnh util;/ admitted into the I nion as a sov ereign State. They have asserted their approval of protection to Ameri can lahor; the immediate construction of a Pacific J {ail road ; their expression in favor of free to Amer ican troemen; that the normal condi tion of the Territories is freedom; that Slavery i-< a local.institution, created ami regulated hy municipal law; that the Constitution does not carry slavery into the Territories, nor has Congress under the Constitution any authority to establish slavery or permit its estab lishment in any jm Territory ot the I'nited States. Clorious as is that triumph, and as arc the effects of that great moral popu lar verdict, vet must wo deplore that all is not brightness and joy. Heartily believing that its results cannot fail to benefit the whole country and our race, yet must we stop short in our rejoic ing when we chronicle also the taet that in the closing part of the de parting year, the curtain rises ami dis plays to our view a section of our Na tional Confederacy acting upon the treasonable doctrine that they have the right to dissolve the I'nion and secede from the Confederacy because the peo ple have elected a President TIIKY did not support, although he was elect ed under the forms prescribed by the Constitution and laws. One State, at least, has exhibited hostility: oneSti.te, at least, has meditated, menaced, aye enacted the most damnable treason. Her J r.nninent loading men, nnrebuke 1 by their fellow citizens have threatened to strike down this magnificent fabric, tin' wisest and most liberal of govern ments yet instituted among men, this holy heritage of the Fathers of the Con stitution, "The I'nion of the States." With the parting year let us remem ber our fealty to that holiest of com pacts. Let us determine that however others may act we will be true to our selves and our whole country. Let us hope that with the year now about to expire all thoughts of disunion will vanish and be forgotten. Let us hope that the storm will be allayed and that wise counsels will again prevail. Lot us one and all heartily wish for the best, and solovnllvact that 1H(!I will indeed » » prove to our great Republic a " HAPPY NEW YEAR." UNION SAIUJATII SCHOOL. —\Ye are glad to notice the increased attention that is given to the moral instruction and improvement of the youth in our place, by means of Sabbath Schools. There are three in operation in Olyni pia, attended in the aggregate by 7"> children. On Saturday evening last, the Union Sunday School gave a eon cert and celebration, at the Presbyterian Church, which was attended by nearly eighty children from the several schools, accompanied by teachers, parents and friends. The annual report of the above school was read by the Superin tendent, accompanied by remarks, who was followed by Rev. Messrs. 10vans, Donne, and W'illos, and varied by familiar songs by the children. At the close of the exercises, a collation of apples, cakes and candies, provided by the ladies, was served to the assem blage. * Loss OF TICK UAKK XAXSKTTK. —"We U'flin from tlio Colonist that the hark Xinoiette, Copt.

After a short and very appropriate church service, in which the children prominently joined, the distribution of the gifts took place, to the evident delight of all assembled, especially of the respective recipients. One of the interesting features of the occasion was the presence of the class of Indian boys, who, we are pleased to learn are rapidly acquiring the elements of a Christian education, and who by the testimony of their teachers, make excellent Sunday School scholars. May we be permitted to say, we were de lighted to be a witness of this pleasant scene, and may we express to each and all of those who were actors therein, our most cordial good wishes.

COLUMBIA RIVEU, DEC. 17,18G0, EDITOR STANDARD— Sir I have just read with inncli interest the message of Gov. Mctiill, and am much pleased with the recommendations it contains as far as they go. They are sensible and will no doubt receive the attention they deserve by the Legislature. But is it not significant that while so many matters were noticed, not a word was said about the importance of a mail from the States bv Mr. Mfilkm's road, direct to the Columbia river, and HO connect with the Olympia dally mail, or continue to the Sound by the military' road recommended in the message? "We all know how near such a mail route came to passing Congress last session, and that nothing but the fact of its having been ottered by Mr. Hale, a Republican member of the IT.l T . S. Sen ate, kept it from now being in opera' tion. We all know of how great im portance such a semi-weekly mail would he to the Territory, in not only increas ing the mail facilities, but in establishing stations on the road and keeping it open, so that it would soon become the highway of immigration to our Terri tory and Oregon, and do more tor encourage immigration than all other things put together. And yet no men tion is made of it in our Governor's 1 annual message, and members of Congress are left to imply that it is not of much consequence to us after all. Is it not also significant that no men tion of the Pacific railroad, or what is of such vital importance to us, the Homestead Bill. Xorecommend; tions to urge these measures on the attention of Congress. Why is all this? Can if be because our present acting Gover nor who was formerly clerk in one of the departments at Washington and mu*»t be supposed to know what the opinions of Mr. Buchanan and his advi* sers are on these subjects, knows that such recommendations would not meet their approval. I must confess it is the only solution of the matter I can arrive at, and if it is so, how important it is that we should insist on having our own citizens appointed to till our own ottices and not men sent here, to carry out the will of every President or Cabinet. I also looked with much interest fo see by what authority of hw the Gov ernor removed the Capital (Nninniss ioners elected by the Legislature last year. I supposed he would surely sat isfy the Legislature, and through them the people, that he had sueli authoritv, but I looked in vain. Certainly notli lie says in the message would justify it. I know of no authority vested in the Governor to remove any officer of the Legislature for any cause, and it can only be looked upon as an insult to' that body, to remove their regularly authorized agent. If tho (Jovernor and his masters ire Washington are right in controlling" and disbursing the money without re gard to the wishes of our Keprescn tatives,why need he trouble himself to remove the Commissioners. Uispropi r course would have heen, to have paid no attention to them, hut goon with the work. We have had too mueh of this assumption of authority by our Federal officials, and I hope to see it appropriately rebuked in this instance by our Legislature. And I hope too, that 110 partisan feeling*, will deter them from urging on Congress the vital importance of the semi-weekly mail to the Dalle.', and of the Pacific Hail Hoad and Homestead law. JUSTICE. MOXTKKM.©, DKC. 20th 1800. EDITOR STANDARD :—Your valuable paper containing a rebuke to the seces sion sentiments, of one of our Federal Judges, has been read here with hearty approhati ». It is supposed that the reterenei is to Hon. WILLIAM STROXO, Judge ot the Columbia liiver District* For on passing through hero on hh way to attend the session of the Su preme Court, he boldly avowed the same sentiments. Our people hero were astonished at their utterance, but were more so, at the proclamation by the same gentleman, " That he did not betieiv that Prenident Lincoln erer would, he inaugurated." On being criticised for uttering such sedition, a person in the crowd remarked that " he must hare a horrid idea of members of the part>/ he NOW belongs to, if he thought it trould for a moment countenance asmxination." Ho replied, "he knew it. would be wrong, but did not doubt it would bo dono." Had this ended here, though it is well, to mark the sentiments of our public men, I should never have deemed it worthy of remark. Hut a number of the subordinates in the Democratic household having taken this cue from the more proiuineut leaders still utter and proclaim these disgusting loath some sentiments. Does it not exhibit in the mind of that Judge, once so lusty a whig, singular hallucinations? Many of those who formerly admired him," look with pity upon the dangerous extremes he is maalg avowing* to make himself popular with the secession wing of the Democratic party. Let them hut utter sentiments dangerous and subversive of even' principle of polit cal propriety, and lfc "out heroding Her od," madly'rushes beyond tho furthest, and proclaims himself voluntarily, tho most ultra of tho fire-eating fraternity. From one educated in the free north, who has all his lite professed to lie a whig, who now asserts he nerer ha* changed, but that the Democratic iiarty, has come to him. other and DcUe."
