at noon, a woman, who cal's herself Abby Jen
ftlns. entered the public school in St. Phillp street,

was hailed by the janitor, who trleu to stop her,
bot m vain. She carried off her pinn der, and

Britten brig Prothcsa, Cuptain E. 0. Ball, sailed

cargo of 2S00 bags of coffee. This cargo has ben
selected with great care, aud may be expected to

\ Christmas in all its glory-the Christmas of the
; olden time, ushered in with midnight music, song
and shout, was celebrated yesterday; and alt who
participated in Its pleasure? will wreathe with
dowers the mile stone that marks tho anniver?
sary, in the long catalogue of years that have
preceded t: ij, there may bave been oecas:<<ns of
greater toed ox. (lenient and rtibre nols?, but
around thc hearthstone happiness never r Inned
more supreme, concent never more asserted its
majesty, and gralltmtd to the "Hiv. ror every good
aud perfect gift," never more ascended ae sr.ite
fui ince S? shan it did yesterday from thc bonus
of Caa i les on. The poor lal ample evidence of |
thegenial sympathies which attach ?o ti;e fr...
and nnny a domicile saw human sunshine play?
ing up m its walls, and felt thc thro') or that reel?
ing which makes he whole world kin. The chil?
dren, too, received their customary tributes, and
in the fullest measure oojoyed the presence or j
their patron saint. Linie stockings were overrun
wini tokens oi love, and microscopic tea-parties,
and other superb repasts, 0:1 a small capita!, cu?
rled older memories back among the scenes or
Sunday, though it was, even the g"od people
found ample field for thc exercise of Christian
graces at home, aud the day wltnc-ssc! perhaps
as much real rciighn aronud family altars as
would have been bestowed within the precincts
of the sacred edifice. The charities of ihe heart
were loo :encd, and the corner-stone of genuine
Christianity was illuminated by a ruddy glow,
such as ought to light the day of days ia which
glad tidings weat forlh to the world at large.
Tuc bad people-well, we have no heart to write
about them. They blew horns and fired torpe?
does in the very shadows or churches; walked at
disreputable angles, and found their way ta rest?
ing places lu Hie Guardhouse and elsewhere with
thc same old regularity that has marked their
habits lu the past. Christmas to them means dis?
sipation, familiarity with John Barleycorn, the
idle expenditure of hard earnings, an>1 a head?
ache In the morning. They forget b.<th the day
and its associations, and in tho llceuso they en?
joyed debised Heir manhood. Those, however,
who drew the equatorial Hue between proprie y
end misdeeds; who were satisfied with that which
chaered but not inebriated; who found solid com?
fort In thc interchange or home Joys ami friendly
greetings; who marked tile anniversary with aeis
of lr.vo that kindled fires of gratitude-i hey en?
joyed the occasion, and in their hearts could ex?
claim, "A merry, merry Christmas I"
TO-DAT.-By general consont, to day seems
to haye been selected ror the celebration of
Christmas and little business wiil be doue. The
boys will open battery-, the men who labor with
brain aud brawn will take their comfort, the
ladles will visit aud dine, families witl commingle,

sign that thc day demands tribute.

STREBT KOW.-About 3 o'clock yesterday af
terr.fon a number of men In Stale street, near
Queen, were approached by another part jr armed
with tin horns and other appliances ror a lively
injoyment or christmas, in the plenitude of ex?
hilaration one of the 'atter company placed an
enormous horn at the ear of one of the first
named persans who was not observing him, and
blew a sonorous blast. The e^ect upon the
blower was tremendous, for wheeling quickly
around, he drove his fist ag.-lnst the physiognomy
.f the blowee, and sent him sprawllag on the pave?
ment. Tins cheerful beginuiug toon lcd to a gen?
eral row, aa J Hie two parties were speedily cn
gaeed. Horns were battered, fists freely u=cd.
and brickbats and stones flew briskly around.
Tnanks to Jack Frost, however, only a few of
these "Jeta fome.s??err." could be obtained for thc
occasiou. The ad veut of the police created some
confusion in the opposing ranks, and the cap: ure
of several of the comba ants put an end to the en?
gagement. Seven or eight were taken to the

TON MARKET on Saturday night was a
picture for a study. From beginning to end,
Hie crowd early in thc evening was almost
impassable, and thc chicken hucksters, old mau
mns, '.nd purveyors or meats, sounded thc praises
of Christ inas stock with an eloquent volubility,
which, mingled with thc buzxiug of the crowd,
made a very Niagara of noise. Everybody had a
basket or an armful, and everybody looked cheer?

INTERESTING PUKSKNTATIONS.-This ls cmi

the past week thousands or hearts have icen
m ide happy by thc receipt of unexpected tokens
ot kin-lness and regar i. It is very doubtful,
however, whether any of thc cotapilracnis of thc
Christmas time were less looked for, or more
welcome, than tin; handsome presents made to
their pastor and superintendent, on Saturday
night, by the cathechlsm classes or St Mary's
Church. The pastor, tho Rev. C. ?. Northrop, re?

TUE CnURCliF.8 YESTERDAY.-Divine service
In all of thc churches yesterday especially re?
ferred to thc character of thc day. The texts
selected were appropriate to the occasion, and
the sermons were devoted to ihemcs suggested
by Hie birth aud lire of thc Saviour. Many of thc
churches, especially of thc Rotnau Catholic and
Episcopal persuasion?, were richly adorned with
Dowers, but, lu the majority of them, the cold?
ness of the weather told upon the usual congre?
gation?, and thc attendance was sparse.
Ju St. Patrick's, however, the congregation was
large and the services unusually Interesting. The
music also was fine.
In St. Phillp?, the service was read by Rev. J.
Mercer Green, and thc seraioa was delivered by
Rev. \V. U. W. nowe, on thc text found tn St.
