19. Then Joseph her husband, being
Jubi man, and not witling to make her a
public example, was minded to put her

20. But while he thought on these
things, behold, tbe angel of tbe Lord ap
peared unto him in dream, saying, Jo
seph, thou sen of David, fear not to take
unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which
is conceived in her is of tin Holy Ohoat,
21. And she shall bring torth a son, and
thou shall call his name JESUS: for he
the i asve his people from their sins.

and praised God.

round about them; and all these sayings
were noised abroad throughout all the
hill country of Judea.

them up In their hearts, saying, What
manner of child shall this be? And the
hand of the Lord was with him.
67. And his father .tch arias was filled
with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied,
saying:
68. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel;
for ha hath visited and redeemed his people,
6m. And ha Qi raised up a horn of salva
tion for us in the house of his servant
David;
70. Aa be spake by the mouth of his
holy prophets, which have Dean since the
world began;
1. That we should be saved from our
enemies, and from the hand of all that
hate us ;
72. To perform the mercy promised to
our fathers, and to remember his holy
covenant;
73. The oath whioh he aware to our
father Abraham,
4. That he would grant unto ua, that
we, being delivered out of the hand of our
enemies, might serve him without fear,
6. In holiness and righteousness before
him, all the days of our life.
76 And thou, clild, shait be called the
prophet cf the Highest : for thou ahslt go
before the face of the Lord to prepare his
wsys;
77. To give knowledge of salvation
unto his people by the remission of their
sins,

God; whereby the day spring from on

the Lord u with thee : blessed art thou
among women.
29. And when she saw him, she was
troubled at his saying, snd cast in her
mind what manner of animation this

30. And tbe angel said unto her, Fear
not, Mary : for thou hast found favour
with God.
(1, And. behold, thou ahslt oonceive in

God e.'iall give unto him the throne of his
father Kavid:
S3. And he shall reign over the house of
Jacob forever ; and of his kingdom there
shall be no end.
84. Then ssid Mary unto tbe angel,
How ahall this be, seeing I know not a
man 7
35 And the angel answered and said
unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come
upon the, and ihe power of the Highest
ahsil overshadow thee : therefore also that
holy thing which ahall be born of thee
hall be called the Son of God.
36. And, behold, thy oousln Elizabeth,

age; and this it the sixth month with her,
who was called barren.
37. For with Uod nothing ahall be im
possible. X. And Mary said, Behold the hand

from ber.
39. And Mary arose in thoae days, and

Not at; bat he shall be called John,
61. And they ssid onto her, There Is
none of thy kindred that la called by this
Augustus, that all the world should be
taxed.
2 And this taxing was first made wben
Cy renins was governor of Syria,
3. And all went to be taxed, every one
into his own city,
ft. And Joseph also went up from Gali
lee, cut of tbe city of Nazareth, into
3udea, unto the city of David, which is
called Bethlehem, (because he was ol the
house and lineage of David,)
6. To be taxed with Mary, hia espoused

angel a multitude ot the heavenly host
praislr g God, snd saying,
14. Glory to God In the highest, and on
earth peace, good will toward men.
15. And it came to pass, aa the angels
were gone away from them into heaven,
the shepherds said one to another, Let us
now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this
thing which is come to pass, which the
Lord hath made known to us.
16. And they came with haste, and
found Mary and Joseph, and the babe ly

17. And when they had seen it, they
made known abroad the saying which was
toll them concerning this child.
15. And sll they thst heard at wondered
at thoae things which were told them by
the shepherds,
19. But Mary kept all these things, and
pondered them in her heart.
20. And the shepherds returned, glori
fying and praising God for all tbe things
that they had heard and seen, as it was
told unto them,

THS SITUATION.
Tbe Little Rock Journal (Radical) Bays:
We learn both from tbe Governor and
from General Reynolds, who reached
here last night from Chicot, that the re
ports of ravishing and various other ex
oeeaea reported by the telegrams, sre
not true. The mob have charge of the
town and seem to be holding It under
system. They have pressed prisoners
and mules etc.. Into use, but otherwise
have not Interfered with the rights of
citizens. The only wanton deatruotlon
perpetrated up to the time of General
Reynolds' departure, was that of Gar
rett'a store. The mob seem to be under
control.
The fact that they hold the town as they
do, probably arises from s tear that if
they disperse the whites will retaliate. In
this state of tbe case we think It Is neces
sary that the sltustion demands the pres
ence of a power whioh will be an assur
ance to both races of mutual protection.
We believe the only dsnger there springs
from s mutual fear of each other, by
whites and colored.

Washington, December 24. Official
advices show that our minister (Bassett)
has remonstrated with the Haytien gov
ernment sgsinst its wsut of good faith
shown in its observance of neutrality In
the domestic strife in Han Domingo. The
minister of foreign affairs declared that
the government took a lively interest in
the independence of Ssn Domingo, and
does nothing to foment discord there. Mr.
Bsasett does not, however, believe iu the
sympathy of the Haytien government.
The investigation of all affairs of the
treasury department by tbe congressional
committee on such expenditures will to
resumed immedlstely after the holidays,
The full opinion of the United Siatee
supreme court in the legal tender oases
will be delivered on the 15.h of January,
Those who will unite in the majority are
Justices Davis, Strong, Miller, Sway tie
and Bradley ; and those in tbe minority
are Chief Justice Chase and Associate
Justices Clifford, Field and Nelson. In

GAS.
Terrific ExdImIm li New York -Part of
tbc City to TetaJ Darkaet.
New Yob k, December 24 About six
o'clock last evening the purifying-house
attached to the Metropolitan Gas compa
ny's work:., on Forty-second street, be
tween Eleventh and Twelfth avenues, ex
ploded with tremendous concussion. The
building was demolished, and immediate
ly afterward the ruins were discovered to
be on fire The flames were extinguished
before communicating to any other de
partment ot the worka.
The causa of the explosion was gas es
caping from tbe purifying department and
isnKlng in a body. Toe oonouasion was
terrible. Windows were smashed by
cores in tenement houses near by. The
noise ol the explosion was like that sup
posed to be made by an earthquake. No
one was injured, except Patrick McGrath,
a fireman, and be not seriously. A fright
ful calamity waa averted by the presence
of mind of one of the employees of tbe
company, who, by shutting the galea
leading to the mains thus out oH the gas
from the houses. But for this precaution
there might have been gas explosions all
over this district. The escape of the
workmen employed in this branch of
works was due to very fortunate clrcum
stsriTes. A few days ago an alteration
was made in their hours for labor, so thst
they were enabled to knoek 08 Bt 5:80
p.m., Instead of 6. Had the old rule an to
boure been in force, hundreds of lives
would have been sacrificed. From Thirty-fourth
street to Sixty-fifth street, on
tbe weet side, and to Fifty -seventh street,
in one part of Sixty-filth street, in anoth
er portion of the east side streets, the
store were left in total darkness. This
state of affairs will probably last a week.
Loes, ajO.OOO.
The upper part of the city above- Thirty-fourth
street la still in darkness, and
no services were held In any of tbe
caurohee In that portion of the city this
evening.
The president of the ess company prom
isee s sufficient quantity of gss to morrow
night to burn till 12 o'clock.

Memphis papers containing later accounts
than we have published, state that a num
ber of stores were sacked and burned, and
other outrages committed, Tbe mob has

for more then a week- That many of tbe
reports of tbe outrages are exaggerated is
to be expected but toe fact mat all tne
prominent cltlzsna hare left far fear ol
violence, and acme of them are now in
this city, shows s fearful condition of
affairs. This information has been In the
nosaeesion of tbe Executive for eeversl
days. He has sent his adjutant general to
quell tbe dis.urosnce, but
oBAVB APFKKBaNSlONS
exist, among many citizens that General
Daniorth's visit will not hsve the desired
fleet. The sheriff of tbe county, we
understand, haa declared thii only Federal
troops can restore order, for the reason be
fears tbe militia might fraternise with
the mob.
A FDBUC MIXTINO

Intimated thst s meeting of this kind

should be obnoxious for the governor of

What he can do to suppress the mob, ar
rest tbe ringleaders, and restore peace, we
do not know. The governor, we believe,
la unwilling to take any further action
until he hears from his adjutant. Daring
all thia time, however, the people of
Chit county are subject to the whims
snd caprices of a mob. We believe, with
the Journal, that "the sltustion demands
the presence of a power whioh will be an
assurance to both races oi mutual protec

Through the tireless efforts which the

A few dsys since tbe owner of several
thousand acres of land in the richest cotton-growing
portion of Mississippi de
cided to set apart small farms of sixty
acres each, for sixty families, or sixty
men married or single, who will go there
and work, aa they can to more profit than
iu the North. For the accommodation of
tble people the owner of this property
will do this: Build for each person or
family a good s:zsd, comfortable cottage
iarmnouse; not a snaooy affair, but i
neat, attractive home; will erect a school
house, and employ a competent teacher,
whose business shall be to teach the chil
dren of tensnta free of charge, seeking
not to lntenere wttn their religious fsuo
ur poiLical belief. With each cot
tage or farm-house will be sot
apart filteen acres of tbe fifty to
be by tbe tenants cultivated to corn
vegetables or fruit for their exclusive use
thirty nve acres, the balance of the fifty,
to be cultivated by the tenant to cotton,
one-halt of the yield each season to be
long to the tenant, tbe other half to the
owner of the property, till such time ae
the tenant can pay for tbe fifty acres, or
more, at such reasonable price as may bo
agreed upon, the owner of the property
will rsiae no vegetables, corn or grain, but
will purchase of the tenants sll they may
raise, all they wish to sell, and will ad
vance to thoae who wish to engage In this
enterprise empty-handed, provisions,
horses or mules and agricultural lmple
uients. We consider this one of the beat
eff rs for all parties to be made. It is bet
ter for tbe owner of tbe land than to em
ploy negro help, that cannot be relied
upon, or to suffer the land to remain in
idleness, unproductive, and, therefore,
worth!
