The holiday season is rapidly approach'
ing, and the good old custom of making
presents shonld not be forgotten. The
children are taught, almost instinctively,
to look forward to Christmas as to "a good
timeoming." They dream of it for weeks
before it an ires, and wonder what nice
things what marvels of mechanical in
genuity what highly prized ornament
will fall to each particular lot. In select
ing holiday presents the unities xhould be
preserved. -The relations that exist be
tween the giver and the receiver (should be
considered, nnd the question of appropri
ateness duly weighed. That, for instance,
which a gentleman might with propriety
give to a child would in all probability be
insulting to a lady. There is, however,
one clam of gifts which may be regarded
as exceptiont.1. We refer to books, and in
this connection call attention to the choice
selections juit brought out by Paul, Tavel
& Hanner, CNo. 48 Union street If you
want 'a'JJiblo, or prayer-book, they have
them in all ntyles and bindings; orifyou

thousand varieties. A more choice selec

To uight the world-famed Hanlons, and
n large company of talented assistant)',
appear at the Masonic Hall. Tlii is
their final appearance in Naahville. We
command the worthy Brothers to the pat
ronage of our entire community The
Louisville Courier thus alludes to their ex
hibitions in that city during the past week:
It is evident that our citizens appreciate
meritorious entertainments of whatever
character they may be, and those who dis
lelieve this assertion will have their
iloubts instantly dissipated by a peep into
Weisiger nail, wherein the llanlon
Brothers are now giving their unique en
tertainments. Last night this large place
of amusement was crowded to lU fullest
extent by laJies and gentlemen, who were
delighted beyond measure at the beautiful
performances unsullied by coarse jests and
vulgar and unmeaning sets. The exhibi
tion oftheHanlon is of a refined charac
ter, and the inot faMidious will never
have their modesty taxed by witnessing it.
Never did we hear applause no rapturous
as given to Pfau when he went flying from
one trapeze to the other as graceful as a
bird who wir.gs from branch to branch. It
was a heirty expresiion of approbation
that is seldom, if ever, bestowed en any
thing but true and genuine merit, by a
Louisville audience. The three little
pupils of the Hanlons, whose united ages
cannot be more than sixteen, were the
cause of much, merriment and much admi
ration by their skillful and finished acting.
They are marvels by the way, and an exhi
bition in themselves so perfect that they
could completely eclipse two-thirds of the
acrobats now traveling this continent The
vocalism of Emily Thorne, and the ex
quisite harp performances of Mr. Blamp
ton, contribute much to the character of

embracing a new root, modernized win
dows, enlarged galleries, fresh paint, and
brilliant papers. These improvement, we
hear, are to be commenced at an early
day.' When completed, the Adelphi will
be, on account of its great capacity and
convenience of arrangement, a desirable
place for theatrical exhibitions or other
kinds of public entertainment
