J.W.HOUGHTOK. if. H. HOUGHTON,
At first, Christ mui was a, movable
festival, aad afterward the 6th of Janu
ary was observed, both as the day of onr
Xord' baptism and in celebrating hie
I4rth, but in the 4th century St. Cyril of
Jerusalem, obtained an order from Julius
1, Bishop of Rome, to investigate con
cerning the date of Christ's birth, result
ing in an agreement to fix it at Decem
ber 26th, and certainly since A. D., 837,
and some authorities put it as early as
. 138, it has been one of the most noted
Since the 6th century, the Bom'sh
Chnrch h-tve celebrated three masses to-
usher in the day, one at midnight, the
second at early dawn and the third in
the morning. The Romans, Irish snd
Germans bare for centuries made the
day one of great feasting, protracting
the gayety through twelth night, Janua
. ry 6th, and with more or less enthusiasm
keeping it up till Candlemas, February
In the Protestant countries of Europe,
Christmas is regarded as the childrens
festival, aud presents between parent,
and children, brothers and sisters are
customary; the father taking that annu
al occasion, also to remind his sons of
their faults of character and conduct and
the mother to instruct her daughters with
especially solemnity, and also to praise
them in any improvement she has ob
served. It is further related that still in
some of the villages of Germany the
presents are all sent to one person, who
in mask and frightfully fanciful
dress as Euecht Rupert, who goes
from house to house, whre he is re
ceived with solemn reverence by the par
ents, and after calling for the children
and severe questioning of the father and
mother as to the past behavior of each,
bestows the gifts according to merit, a
discipline more wholetome than pleas
ant. In Northern Europe and England,
many are the tales and traditions of the
splendor of the Christmas preparations,
when the yule log glowed from ample
hearths, tenants were entertained at the
Hall, and the abundance of the lords was
shared by the peasant.
"A Chrirtanae gambol oft woeld cheer.
A poor man's heart throash half tne Tear."
The bay, the laurel, the holly, the ivy
and misletoe are the favorite decorations
where these evergreens are to be had
bnt substitutes are readily found where
they are not, and though the Puritans
frowned upon the Dutch innovation of a
merry Christmas and a Santa fjlaus, the
observance of the day as a festal and
religious holiday has spread from the
Middle and Southern States until it cov
ers all the land, and is so dear to the
hearts of the young it sweeps away all
the prejudice of the old.
The people of this country do not
abandon themselves to reckless merry
making, as they must have done in the
olden lands, according to the steries and
descriptions we have read and heard;
but few homes are so sternly practical or
so poor that some little attempt is not
made to surprise each member thereof
by gifts; while family and neighborhood
dinner and evening parties, church and
Sunday school observances make the day
a religious and social festival. The cus
tom of giving presents at Christmas or
New Tears, is becoming more and more
general as the country grows older and
luxuries increase. Every merchant and
shop-keeper makes special provision for
the holiday trade, and shopping for
Christmas becomes more bewildering
with every years new devices to lead one
into temptation in money spending.
Nxw Obxxaks, Deo. 8, 1879.
UBS. Hocohtok: 1 had hoped before
my next writing to bo able to tell you
much of work commenced and progress
betas? made in that direction, but sick
' nesa has confined me to my room for
nearly three weeks, so I will give you in
this, something of our surroundings.
Hiss Cougill of Delaware, O., is with
me and we have our Dome at tne It. U
University, which is pleasantly situated
in the upper part of the cty. Just in
front of us is Coliseum Square, compris
insr about five acresof eroond. It is sur
rounded by live oaks that are always
irreen. and is carpeted with gieen grass
the vear round. Nature has done that
for it, and that is all that has been done.
The other surroundings would lead any
one to suppose that it would be a restful
3uiet day there, at least on the Sakbath.
ust opposite us is an Episcopal Church,
below us (south) is the Coliseum Bap
tist Church, while on the lower
corner of the Square is the Trinity Epis
' copal Church, and opposite that the Dis
ciple Church. On the next block above
us ia the H. E- Church, not forgetting to
ur.tion only one block away, which is
entirely covered with uauoiie ouuaings,
church, convent, asylum, etc.
Well, oar Bauaxe is a rala place on
Sundays, and all day long we must hear
the shouts ana nurrans, always accom
panying base ball playing, from early
mom till night. Nor can we find
any quiet Sabbath-like appeal aace
by wandering among and going to
other parts, for as we pass along the
streets, business places of trade seem to
be doing a more lively work than on any
other day. The groceries are all liquor
stores, and one man told me he could not
give up the liquor trade, xor in ii was
his greatest profit, that where he could
aell five cents worth of bread, he could
sell tea of whisky. The evils of drink
are so constantly before me that it is
difficult to separate it from any of the
aaaocirUoBS we meet with along the
street, especially on the Sabbath, and we
feel like exclaiming. "Oh, for a Nehemi-
ah in this day with both the power ana
. the will to go out and command that the
markets shall be dosed,and all trafficking
cease on the Sabbath day."
- Now I wish to tell you something of
our plan of work; wnicn is to open an
Industrial mission scnooi. i naa en
gaged the building before my sickness.
It is a large old church, in a central por
tion, for four of the M. E. Colored
Churches.snd their suurrouadings,which
are large indeed. We snail nave to pay
410 a monib for tbe building. Our idea
is to tainer in from byways aid,al
ley the poorest that are having no oppor
tunity of any teaching, more especially
the girls, and the mothers too, if we can
get them, and to have our school open
four days in the week, the other two
days visiting families.
Our school will be something after Uo
fashion of Muellers ragged schools of
London, and I think wa require quite ss
much faith to undertake it, without any
visible means of support, either for the,
or ourselves, but we accept the promise
to "trust in the Lord and do good, and
verily thou shalt be fed." Sister Con
gill came In quite discouraged; said she
found so many that would be glad to
have their children in the school and
Sabbath school, but they had no clothes,
when, lo, in comes our box from the
good friends n Wellington, not only
packed, but pressed down and running
over with just "bat was needed for
every manner of person from the cradle
to old &
The school is needed a" possible
hundreds more like it, for ignorance pre

in this land; but Gospel lightjand knowl

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
December 20th, 1870 1 1
The entire Maine delegation left for
home as soon as Congress adjourned,
and will be present when the Legisla
ture Is convened at Augusta. Republi
cans here are much in doubt as to
whether tbeir brethren in Maine will
submit to be counted out, without mak
ing strong resistance. Both parties are
joining In beldingfndlgnatlnn mretings
aid denouncing the action of Governor
Gsrcflon and conncil.
Senator Yorhees introduced a reso
lution to investigate the cause of the
negro exodus from South Carolina and
other Southern States, to Indiana. On
the discussion which preceeded its pas
sage. Senator Windom of Minnesota,
made an excellent speech, showing the
real causes of the exodus to be the ut
ter impossibility of the negroes obtain
ing their political rights in the South
nnder Democratic rule. ITe quoted
from a report of a Democratic commit
tee sent South several years ago to In
vestigate some of the numerous out
rages upon Republican voter, which
says, 'the fate of the negro is either
exodus or extinction." Seeing their
mistske, the Democrats attempted to
kill the resolution, but It was adopted
by Republican voters. . We are perfect
ly willing for the Democrats to make
all tbe political capital they can out of
such investigations as this, and recom
mend that they investigate the causes
of the Maine steal, they might get some
political capital out of it. The "exo
dus" committee Is Messrs. Voorhees,
Vsnce, Pendleton, Windom and Blair.
The President yesterday sent a spec
ial message to Congress, calling neces
sity of adopting some method of drain
ing the marshes of the Potomac, oppo
site the city. This is a matter of im
portance, not only to the residents of
this city, but to sll who come here from
abroad to spend the winter, as the ex
halations from decaying vegetable mat
ter causes much sickness. It is to be
sincerely hoped that the President's
recommendation will be heeded by Con
gress and prompt action takn in the
Next Monday Is motion day In the
Supreme Court, and Senatar Edmonds
will ask that the case of Crittenden and
Butler, to test the contutiouality of
the legal-tender act, be advanced on
the calenders, so as to be argued at
once and deckled as soon as pooselble.
It i said that Secretary EvarU will ap
pear with Mr. Edmonds againU the
legal-tender act. Congressman Crit
tenden of New York, says hn thinks in
fluence enough can be brought to bear
on the Supreme Court Judges to ad
vance tbe suit on tbe docket.
We take the liberty of publishing the
following privsta letter, because we
think our readers will be as glad as our
selves to hear from a former resident of
Wellington, and becnusd the worthy
cause for which it pleads can in this wsy
best be brought to the attention of the
Blakco, Texas, Dec. 5. 1879.
Please do not ihTnk me entirely bereft
of reason because of the appearance of
this letter, for 1 am trying to wnte it by
the uncertain light of a brush fire, hav
ing no other, time about 10:30 P. M.,
after an exhausting day's work.
My haste in writing to-night is that
I have a chance to send to the office at
day-break, and I write to you to present
to the friends of the despised and op
pressed colored race.and especially those
of my neighborhood, the great good
which a little charity and judicious giv
ing may do.
I am living on the borders of a colored
colony or some tweniy-nve lamuies,
scattered over and around and between
tbe mountains for several miles. For
more ihsn a year a terrible drouth has
continued and there is a general failure of
.11 crots except cotton, oi wnicn we are
gathering one-third of a crop, and I don't
know how some families are to get food
and clothing this winter.
They are generally industrious and a
very peaceaoie ana isw aDiuiog people,
nrl are worthy cf encouragement in
well doing. They are anxious to learn
to read the Bible without having to apell
out nearly every word and to master the
simple rules or aninmeuc, so mat tnej
shall not be so shame 'ully cheated in
.n hnsiness transaction.
I am hoping to teach their Sabbath
ar-hnni Thev have also petitioned me
to teach a week-day school and I have
consented to give three or four nighta
each week to parents and all who would
be prevented by their work from attend
ing during the day. I know it will be a
hard task, snd the whites will turn up
their noses if they do nothing worse, but
I feel as though it might be the voice of
God calling me to the work, and dare
not disobey. Anything that the schools
or individuals may wish to donate, such
as maps, charts, books, papers, alphabet
blocks, etc., or clothing for both sexes,
old and young, will be thankfully re
ceived. If any one can give a picture, even a
cheap print of Lincoln, uey wouia con
fer a great favor. Tours in haste,

No risk. Thomas' Eelectric Oil! Worth ten times its weight in gold. Do
you know anything of it? If not, it is timo you did. Fain cannot stay where it
is used. It is tbe cheapest medicine ever made. One dose cures common sora
throat. One bottle has cured bronchitis. Fifty cents worth has cured an old
standing cough. One or two bottles care bad cases of pile and kidney troubles.
Six or eight applications cure any case of excoriated nipples" or inflamed breasts.
One bottle has cured lame back of eight years standing. Daniel Plank of Brook
field, Tioga County, Fa., says, "I wont thirty miles for a bottle of your Oil,
which effected a wonderful cure of a crooked limb, by six applications.'
Another who has had asthma for years, says : "I have half of a 60 cent bottle
left, and $100 would not buy it if I could get no more."
Kufus Robinson of Nunda, N. Y., writes : "One smsll bottle of yonr Eclectrio
Oil restored the voice where the person had not spoken above a whisper in five
years." Rev. J. Msllory of Wyoming, JT. Y., writes : 'Your Eelectric Oil cured
me of bronchitis in one week." Dealers all over the country say : "We have
never sold a medicine that has given such complete satisfaction as this."
It is composed of six of the best oils that are known. Is as good for internal
use, and Is believed to be immeasurably superior to anything ever made. Will
save you much suffering and many dollars of expense. ,. Is sold by one or more
