Saturday Jaorning, December 20,1858.
The Bittu-unv of our Saviour.
Tho revolving yeur in ita order lina
brought ron nd once more CUMBTMAS -
.fae brightest and happiest festival of
Christendom-the holiday alike of rich
and.poor, of old and young; or if it
comes with csp?c?aPgl?clncss to any, it is
to the latter-tho little children whom,
when on oarth, Ho whose birth this day
celebrates bade W oome nnto Him, and
took themjin His arms and blessed them,
and said that of such was the kingdom
of Heaven. What would any of ns do
without Christmas, that genial fountain
of happiness which no winter can freeze
over, but which bubbles up with its
waters as pore and joy-giving aa if they
had just flowed from the River of Life
beside the throne of God, causing the
wintry landscape to glow with the spring?
like verdure and beauty of Paradise.
Whai ocher ieafcival makes aa macy peo?
ple happy or animates men for a time, at
least, with such universal sentiments of
peace and good-will towards each other,
or draws their thoughts by such attract?
ive influences to high and holy things ?
What star in all the constellation of fes?
tivals lights up the horizon so long and
brightly before its rising us the star
wbioh heralded the birth at Bethlehem,
or shines with BUcb serene and pervading
light, gilding alike the poor man's) cabin
and the palace of royalty, and which,
after it has set, is remembered with such
regret and suoh earnest longings from
children that it may soon return? But
"Christmas comos but once a year," and
we should make the most of it while it
lasts, and forget for a moment the anx?
ieties of the past, and let tho morrow,
with its uncertainties, take care for the
things of itself; and realize, for one duy
in the year at least, how much moro
blessed it is to give thau to receive. If
there is something inspiriug in the ex?
uberant joy and merriment of children
at this season, there is something even
more amiable in the rejuvenation of thc
parental Kriss Kringles, who are growing
young again in trying to muko children
happy.' In the midst of all our troubles
and perplexities, with men's hearts fail?
ing thom for fear of what the future hus
in store, the gay, glad season hos come
round once more, to cheer and eharm ns
with its presence. There is no mau 6o
cold-hearted who does not foel to some
extent the softening, ameliorating influ?
ences of this genial Christmas tide.
That heart must bo harder than the
nether millstone that does not soften
with the magic influences cf domestic
joys, the festive gatherings benoath the
roof-tree, the glowing, happy faocs of
children, and the elect rio light of kindly
sympathy that kindles in thc con nt en ance
of every one, both young and old, who
bestows the season's benison of "A
merry Christmas" and "Happy New
Year." It is the season which marks tho
great event, whether correctly or not is
of little moment, of the birth-duy of
Him who was "tho hope of Israel, and
the desire of all nations." He, for whose
advent all tho movements of the world
were adjusted, empires rose and fell,
kingdoms waxed and waned. He, the
unspeakable gift, "the Wonderful," "the
Counsellor," "tho Trinco of Peace,"
whose birth Gabriel himself came down
to tell. Let each heart remember ut this
festive season, also, that the joys of
^Christmas should never be selfish joys,
and that ho most honors the memory of j
his Lord and Master who forgets not His j
injunction that "it is better to give than j
to receive." Christianity had over a spe
oial eye to those feelings which should j
remiud us of the equul rights of all, and
tho greatest beauty in it is not merely its
cbarity( which we too often contrive to
swallow up in faith, but ita beiug ever
alive to the sentiment of charity, with?
out whioh its mere profession is de?
nounced us only "sounding brass or a
tinkling cymbal." The same spirit that
vindicated the pouring of rich ointment
on His feet, because it was a homage paid
to sentiment in His person, know how
to bless the gift of a cup of cold water.
Every face, hard iu its lines from the
pressure of stern poverty's griping On?
gera, that we brighten on Christmas, isa
reflection of the brightness of His face
who went abont doing good among the
world's destitute aud poor. Every ivy
wreath or bough of pine with which we
decorate our churches or our homes, is
a piece of natural piety as well as of
beauty, and should remind us at this
season to keep green in our hearts the
memories of the suffering of our Lord's
poor, who, os Ho said, "are always with
ns." Every gladsome bowl which we
set flowing without excess, every harm?
less pleasure, every innocent mirth, how?
ever mirthful, every forge ii ui ness, even
of serious things, when they are only
swallowed np at this season with the
kindness and joy of universal obarity,
which it ?H the end pl- wisdom ko pro

thought so too',' if we are to believe the
poet's account of ber generosity of soul.
Our English ancestors always considered
Christmas in the double light of a holy
commemoration nud a cheerful festival,
and acQor.diugly diatiuguished ita ob
6crvance by abstaining from business,
by merrimeut und hospitality. As ?Sir
Walter Scott sings:
"England was morry EngUsd when
Old Ohristmas brought his sports again.
'Twas Christmas broaoh'd tue mightiest ale;
'Twas Christmas told the merriest tale;
A Christmas gambol oft would cheer
A poor man's boort through many a 2 var."
Even if we do not choose to regard
the day as a religions holiday, wo should
not fail to observe it as a festival of the
heart, where kindly oharities, social
amenities and family re-unions may at
least cast sun-shine into the shadier
places of life's weary pilgrimage. The
sweet angel song of "Peace, good will
to mon," that ushered in the advent of
"the Prince of Peace," should not be
meaningless to us. Let us on this festive
season, bond our ears more keenly to
catch tho glad refrain of the augel's
song, so that the oelestial harmony may
sink deop into our hearts, and produce
there the same softening influences that
fell upon those who were keeping watch
by night, when they first heard the
angelic signal upon the irradiated hill?
sides of Bethlehem. Let us hope that
all our readers will remember that Christ?
mas means forgiveness of enemies; the
lifting np and encouragement of those
who aro bowed down; the ministrations
of mercy to those who are in ueed; tho
deepeningand rc-establishmeut of friend?
ship and affections, and the remembrance
that Lio whoso birth is colobrated re?
quires pureness of life and.correctness of
conduct, cs well as faith in His mis?
sion aud au adh?rence to religious ser?
vices. Let this bo a day when bad
habits shall be abandoned and good
habits entered upon, that the Christ may
be to us salvation in deed ns well ns in
name. Let each of us contribute, by
word aud by deed, something, bo il little
or much, toward bottering tho couditiou
of those around and among us; and il
will bc to all-what we wish it may bo,
dear reader, to you and yours-a happt
Christmas. The following is the logent!
of Santa Clans:
Do you know where SANTA OI.AI'S wai
The merry imp who this morning made
The roof-tree ring with his winding horn,
When the winking bat had sought tin
The screech-owl laughed as he galloper!
And the moon hid low in the Westen
And night-hawk scurried homeward fas
When he cheered his steeds with a Hound
"Tirm la! tirra Ia! I am going by!"
Well, gather around the blazing hearth
Harry aud Daisy, and Frank and May
All who are foud of frolic and mirth,
All who thiuk that on this sad earth
There's no thing so good as an boin "
And, while the 1 ale-log sparkles bright
Stay for a moment your noisy glee,
And before your eye-lids droop to-night
I'll toll you the tale as 'twas told to mc
A withered old woman from Norway land
With a cunning oyo and a wicked laugh
And u wizened face, and a skinny hand
lu which she grasped a crooked vow
And a sack cn her buck md a cat by he
Told mc the stoiy one stormy day,
Aud when she had done, she got astrid
Of her stick, though the door was openei
Aud up the chimney she flew away.
Onco ou a time, so the old crono Raid,
When tho Gnomes and the Elves,
Held open court by thc fountain head
Of the river that flows through Fairj
The King of the Gnomes, on Christmn
Bade all his guests to tho Diamon
For nono of bis Fays that night hav
Till tho cock crows twice a glad repricvi
To roam about on tho earth at all.
Now the King sat np on his emeral
By the Queen in her robe of butterfl
And tho little Princess with tho goble
Played on the "harp of a thousan
When ono of her suitors made so bold
As to ask permission to kiss her toe,
And I shouldn't wonder, for I am told,
That ber very logs are made of gold,
And we kiss thu Pope's, which are no

His ehest swelled out in II great, huge
And his head wa.-? a-? big u- H pumpkin

Aud his mouth was wide HS a tavern
His nose was at least live iuobea long.
And as round aud red as a new scraped
You'd scarcely havo thought that his
shanks were strong
Enongh to carry his spraddling feet;
His cbiu turned up and oyes sunk in
Small as a weasel's and black as a mole,
His arms were long and bony and thin,
And claws like a bear had the manikin,
Aud hair as red as a firc-coal.
Now Lob was once as protty a page

Hut tho cruel Hill-men iu mischievous

They twisted his back and burnt his skin,
They pinched his logs and shriveled
They tweaked his nose and chucked his
And slapped his j iws till his teeth fell
And squeezed his bend in u diiokiiig-cup.
But he had not forgot the .sunny bank,
Or the sparkling hedge where the roses
Or the dark blue sky where the iady

Or tho noisy glco and tho merry piny
Of the little sisters who made him
Tho very mom he was boruo away,
By the magic art of a heartless Fay,
To bo the jost of the Elf-King's court.

Atibar Christmas ?is rolled by. As
usUn!, . tho advent day of tho Trinen of
"Pence will bring with' it events sadly nt
variance with the character of the occa?
sion. A day thnt should be associated
ouly with the innocent pleasures of youth
and tho sober reflections of maturer ago,
is too often devoted to tho wildest re?
velry, tho ruo8l reckless dissipations, and
Ibo most vicious indulgencies. How
often is Chris tm un marred! Ho ar often is
j its harmony disturbed by jarring notes!
j How often is it? peace made to give way
I to the rude war of thc passions!
1 jet us hopo that men will not be au
j mindful of the hallowed oliar.tctcr of tho
j day. It heralds the birth of Him who
I came to lie the Saviour of men aud nn
? tionnlities. It marks the advent into tho
! world of Him who WOH to give a philoso
I phy better than that of Plato and
I Socrates, and a hope which goes beyond
I the grave--of Him who waa to give tho
assurance of a life of which this is but the
beginning-of Him who was to impart
to the wise and pure "that peace which
passel li all understanding." Let Christ?
mas, then, come upon us with its pions
nnd cheerful iufluenco. Lot it bring
quiet and sober joys to ?ge and bright
and joyous realization to youth and
childhood. Io this spirit, we bid otu
readers a pleasant Christ mon, and wo in?
dulge the hope that another Christmai
muy lind them improved in body and os
