Christmas. One of the most charming productions of Dickens in that "Christmas Carol," in which he tells owas unlocked by the genial inferences of a certain Christmas, and who became thereafter the most benevolent andd. We wish that some of the persuasive visions of Christmas past, Christmas present, and Christmas to come, whChristmas present, and Christmas to come, which worked such a wholesome influence upon the mind of the English miser, could make themselves left in the adaChristmas to come, which worked such a wholesome influence upon the mind of the English miser, could make themselves left in the adamant natures of our Confederate Scrooges.

An armed brig from the North was seen to come inside the bar Monday afternoon. Several vessels, mostly schooners, supposed to be supply boats, passed the bar, going South. The number of vessels inside the bar Monday evening was 27; in Stone 19; River 10; Light-house Inlet 19; off the bar 7--all of about the same character as heretofore repo
