SWITZERLAND S FEDERAL FAST.
A Day of Thanksgiving and Religious Ob
servations.
The third Sunday in September is
set aside in Switvetland fvx the Federal
Fail, anil it has been on several occa
sions sinte Us institution strictly enjoy
ed by a proclamation of the CotUni m
litat in different cantons. The date
of this day of penance is at once an
cient in its oriRin. its injunctions very
precise, and its character singularly in
consistent with the ceitbftUon it had
in view.
Afltr the departure of Napoleon I.,
for St. Helena, Switzerland found her
self (teed from the yoke laid upon her
neck by the omnipotent Kmpcror, and
able to rccovtr her autonomy. The
"Mk la," now bearing the name of "Fed
eral Council," decreed that every year
this auspicious event should be com
memorated by a celebration taking
place on the third Sunday of Septem
ber. The festivities were to be ol an
exclusively religious nature, and every
ciiwen was to visit the churches and
offer up thanksgivings to his Maker.
The whole population has always
piously conformed to this patriotic
duty as it was laid upon it. 1 roin the
Sari) dawn, on the appointed day, the
latthfc I flock to their "temples," as the
strict disciples of Calvin call their
places of worship to distinguish them
emphatically from those of the Catho
lics and Lutherans. Special and length
ened services are held, and earnest
sermons preached by the pastors. Hut
whatever the faith, religion or sect to
which a Swiss belongs, whether a native
born or one by adoption, he never
shirks the public manifestation of fast
ing and prayer, imploring Divine as
sistance and protection for the prosper
ity of the Fatherland.
If any one canton has suffered from
the visitations of excessive sruwl
hail, or destructive avalanches, on the
third Sunday ol September collections
are made for the victims and generously
responded to.
Beyond the proclamations of the
Federal Council, the CoitUil d'Etat of
each canton exhorts those under its
control to thi fear of Cod, the obser
vance of justice, and the practice of
good deeds. Shops and places of busi
ness are hermetically closed. Sabbati
cal observance being by no means a
geneial tule, anc there is no attempt at
any kind of manual labor.
At the close of the religious services,
toward 4 0( 5 in the afternoon the
devotees return to their homes and par-
tike of a frugal eo lation. The more
strict among them, however, fast till the
evening. Some few years ago a slight
relaxation crept into the austerity of the
rules. On the eve of the fast day the
young people of both sexes gathered a
plentiful harvest of grapes in the vine
yards to be used for the open tarts in
vogue in the country. On the return
from the "Temple" on the Sunday the
relations and friends of each family as
sisted in the making of the tarts with all
the mastery of long experience, and now
the delicacy is looked upon with some
thing of the reverential regard awarded
by the Englishman to his Christmas
lum pudding.
But in spite of this gastronomic re
creation the day maintains ils sober and
stern character. It is, however, whis
pered that some recreants are habitually
ailed across the frontier by imixirtant
business precisely at that date, and that
they spend twenty four hours in mun
dane pleasures; but there are free think
ers in all communities, and it must be
confessed that the deserters, if any, are
cruelly strangers or lately naturalized
residents. The loyal sons of Helvetia
consider it a patriotic duty to conform
strictly to the regulations of the day as
they obtain in the twenty two cantons
1 f the 1 onfederate.
The inconsistency of celebrating
deliverance from oppression and recon
quered freedom by fasting and penace
remains im plicable, and strikes the
spectator as the most incongruous
fashion ol expressing national rejoicing,
passing of the rebel sol
DIER.
The Ranks of the Men Who Fought for
Secession Are Growing Thin.
From some statistics just returned to
the Govern 1 rS office by Stale Treas
ur. r Hardeman il becomes painfully
apparent thai the old soldiers of the
Confederacy and their widows are
iassing sws) last. Colonel Hardeman
1 his mori 11 g sent 111 his repoit of the
money paid out for pensions since the
first of March. It slums that the
crippled soldiers of Gaorgis have re
ceived during the year $181,225.
There is a decided falling off m the
humbjtl pi old swidiers who have been
drawing $100 a year fur the loss of a
limb or total disability. In ggs there
were 1000 pensioners under this head,
but from Colonel Hardeman's figures
