WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 25, 1867.
HYJIS OF THE NATIVITY.
SZ JOHN KILTO*,
A. D. 1639.
This is tho month, and this thc hippy i .u.
VYher in the Son of Healan ] eternal uing.
Of wedded Maid aad Virgin Mother born.
Our g.ea: re.lempdon irom above did bring;
For KO til - holy eases once did sing.
That ho our ik-adK forfeit shou.d release.
And with his Father work us a perpetual peace.
?hst clor! ms form, that fight unsufferable,
And that ia .scaming blaze ol majesty,
Wherewith he wont at HoaVn's high oouncil-Uble
To sit the aildst of Trinal Potty,
He lid ?side; and hero with us to be,
Forsook the e m. ts of everlasting day.
And chose with us a darksome boute of mortal clay.
Say heav'nly Muse, ehalt not thy sacred vein
A'ford * prese.it to tho lula at God ?
H nit thou n > verse, no hymn, or solemn stialn,
To welcome him to ibis his new abode,
yow while the Ucav'n b . the sun's team untrod,
Hath to 'k no print o. the approaching light,
And ail thc spangled host keep watch in squadrons
See how from far upon tho eastern road
The star-led wizards haste with odors sweet:
O ru.:, prevent die n with thy numble ode.
Anl lay it lowly at his blessoa feet:
Have thou the honor first, thy lord to greet.
And j on .hy voice uuto tho Angel quire,
From out his scoret altar touch'u wiui hallow'd fire.
It was the winter wild,
Wm e thc i.eav'n-born child
Ali iKtanly ?rapt ia the rude mauger lies;
Natu: J in uwe to him
Had dont h-r gawdy trim.
With uer great Master so to sympathize:
It was no season tuen tor her
lo wanton with the sua her lusty paramour.
Only with specche3 fair
Sho woe's tho gentle air
To hide her guilt > fi out with innocent snow.
And on uer naked shame
Pollute with sinful blame.
Tho saintly veil of ma den white to throw,
Confounded, that her Maker's eye i
Should look so near upon 'JOT foul deformities.
But he her fears io cease,
bent dowu the meek-ey d Peaco ;
She, crewn'd .ith ouvo greet:, came solUy sliding
Bown t ..rough tho turning itpbero
His ready harbinger.
With tarue wing the amorous clouds dividing,
And waving wid - her myrtle wand,
She sa Utos au unmrsal peaco through sea and land.
No war, or battcl's sound
WM hoaid tho world around:
Ibo idle spear sud shield were high up hung.
The hooked chariot stood,
UuSUin'd Wi u hes lie blood,
in.- trumpet rpoke mi to the armed throng,
And kings (ut sail with awful eye,
'As if me., surely knew their sovran Lord was by.
But peaceful was the night.
Wherein the arinco o. light
His reign ot peace upen me earth began:
Thew.nds with wonder whist
Smootulv uio waters cist,
Wuispenn ne ... joys to the mild ocean,
Who now LU.: a quite io: got to rave.
While hi. do oi cairn sit brooding on the charmed wave.
The stars with deep amaze
Stand flx'd lu st adta-t gaze,
Beuuing on* way their precious influence.
And will not take their flight.
For all tue morning light.
ur Laciter that otteii waro'd them thence;
But ia their glimmering o. bs did glow,
Until iud. Lo.d tuznseU beepake and bid them go.
And tho gb the thady gloom
Had g v.n day htr room,
Xhe sen nimseli withae'.d his wonted speed.
And nid hi) beau fur ?horno.
As his inferi? flame
lue new i_hgLten'd w rid no more should need;
He saw a greater sun appear
Ihjnnis bright three, or burning axletree, oould bear
Thc shepherds on the lawn,
Or e'er toe pom. of dawn,
b.t nra. ly chattiug i e rustic row;
Full lit.l ?nought they then,
a hat tao u.igbiy Pan
W.t. kind.y come to live with them below;
Per h. pe their loves, or else then* sheep,
Vi sa *0i mat d-d ueu* eily though.s so busy keep.
When s ..ch music sweet
lb. i heart and ears did greet,
As never wa? by mortal Unger stxook,
Div.u-iy-warb ed voice
Answering mo st.inged noise,
As ah meir s ulsiu bhsstul rapture took:
The a-r, su.-h pie .sure lo'h to lose,
With thousand ech.es sob prolongs each heav'nly close
Nature that heard such sound.
Beneath ihe hohow lound
O: Cynthia's ?eat, the aery region thrilling,
Kow was almost won
To think her part w<u done.
And that her reigu had here its last frurilling;
She knew such harmony alone
Could hold all Heav'n and Earth in happier union.
At last surrounds their sight
A globe of circular light,
That with long yearns the shame-fae'd night array'd;
The helmed cherubim.
And sw ortie . terathim,
Ale seen In fci.ttermg ranks with wings display'd.
Harping in loud and sol. mn quire.
Witt un expressive notes to Heaven's new-bom Heir.
Such music (as 'tis said)
Before was never made.
But wuen of old the sons of morning sung,
While tao Creator great
His constella iona set,
And the weU-balanced world on hinges hung,
And cast the dark louncattons deep,
And bid the weltering waves their oozy channel keenjr^
Bing out yo crystal spr.orea, ^t^^^
Once bless our human oars,
(If yo nave power to touch oj?^gCJlie3 goj
And let your silver chi'ue
Move In melodious timc^*
And let tho base of Haven's deep organ blow,
And with your i-me^id harmony
Mane up luJl caaj-jSri to th' ?nge?io symphony.

?V. wisest Fate says no,
Thi- must not yet be so.
Thc babe li?e yet in smiling infaney,
That on the bitter cross
Must redeem our loss;
so both him eli and us to glorify:
Yet first to those ychain'd in sleep,
The wakeful trump ot doom must thunder through the
With such a horrid clang
AS o mount Sinai rang.
While the red fire and smouldering clouds ou tb rake:
The aged earth aghast,
With terror of that blast,

When at the world's last session.

Toe parting Genius is with sighing sent;
With flowe: in wo ven tresses torn
The Nymphs in twilight shade of tangled thickets mourn.
In const crated earth.
And on the holy hearth,
The Lara and L?mures moan with midnight plaint;
In U ns, and altars round,
A drear ona dying sound
Affrights the tiamens at their service quaint;
And the chill marule seems to sweat.
While each peculiar Power forgoes his wonted seat.
Peor and Ba a'un

With tba. t * iee battor'd God of Palestine;
And mooned Ashiaroth,
Beav'u's queen and mother both,
Now sits not girt w.th tapers' holy shina;
Thc Libye Hammon shrinks his horn.
In vain tho Tynon maida thoir wounded Thsmmuz
And sullen Moloch fled.
Hath left in shadows dread
His burning idol all cf blackest hue;
In vain wi h cymbals* ring
Ihey caii the grisly king,
Ba dismal dance about the furnace blue;
The bruta.-h Goes of Nile as last,
Isis and Onie, and thc dog Anubis, haste.
Norla O six is seen
In Merni hian grove or greeu.
Trampling tho uashowe'-'d grass with lowings loud:
Nor can he be at rest
Within his sacred chest,
Nought but profoundest Hell can be his shroud;
In v. h. with timbrel'd anthems dark
The sable-stoled sorcerers bear his worship? ark.
He feels from Juda'slsnd
The dreaded Infant's hand.
The rays of Bethlehem blind his duaky oyu;
Nor al the Gods beside
Longer dare abide.
Not Typhon ho j? ending in snaky twine :
Our babe, to show his Godhead true.
Can in his swadling-bands controll tho damned crew.
So when the sun m bed,
Curtain'd with cloudy red,
Pillows bis chin upon an orient wave,
The flocking shadows pale
Troop to the internal jail,
Each fetter'd ghost slips to hie several grave,
And the yefiow-sltirttd Fayee
Yly after tho night-steeds, leaving their moon-lov'd
But see the Virgin blest
Hath laid her Babe to rest,
Time is our ted ous song should here hav3 ending:
Heaven's yo .ngest teemed star
Hath nx'd ber po'isti'd car,

And all about the courtly stabl>

ab ed to operate with gi eater ease and the demand bo- |
came more active, resu.ting m the business uoted above.
Prices exhibited considerable irregularity, some buyers
Claiming that they bought at easier ra:ea, while others
rei ortcd that they were compelled to pay outside figurts.
On the whole, tho marke: maybe quoted linn at our

staplo lists, which commanded outside figures, and in
exceptional cases of ex ra staple a traction more.
