In England, from which country wo
derivo so many of our social Imoiis and

which it attached to it is lielJ to be only

At Easter thoro is n universal deter

In early days, Easier was counted tbo
queen of festivals, and was colobriitod
hith great pomp and solemnity. I'rimt
tive Christians upon this dny, always,
when thoy met in too morning, witcnd of
the usual form of salutation, exclaimed,
'Christ is risen I" and tho pooplo slm d
invariably responded. "Christ is risoo in-
deed," or "And has appeared unto l'ctnr."
It was poetical ami Uriontal. The Km
sian and tireok ohurchr havo IkjUi pro
served this custom, and at every roourring
