CHRISTMAS THOUGHTS. BY GERALD GRIFFIN.

Seven blooming Summers Vanished too,

They cannot be by words renewed ' '

And now in sweet religious rest ,

Returning from tat stormy world,
How pleasing is a sight like this?

THE PUBLIC DEBT.
A correspondent draws our at
tention to the mountain ot public
debt trttt is accumulating upon us
a debt unparalleled in the world s
history; for while the gigantic debt
of other nations are the accumulai
tions of centuries ours is almost the
work of a day. In reference lo the
bill before Congress, to issue bonds
to tlio amount ot ono thousand mil
Hons of dollars, our correspondent
asks if we have thought tor a mo
ment of tho maimitude of these fie
ures. Wo know what a minute is
an hpura day. When we utter
these figures, we do not. know that
a thousaud millions of minutes have
not elapsed since the-birth of our
Savior! and that a dollar for evory
minute of time since the commence
ment of the Christian Era would
not suffice to pay a debt of one thou
sand millions of dollars! Such are
! the gigantic proportions of a debt
which this war ii heaping, upon us
and our posterity, to be met only
by repudiation or by grinding, tax
An Incident of Battle.

famous Bucktail' regiment, who
was killed nt tb Dattle of Antietam,

During the battle of South
Mountain, the rebels held a very
strong position. They weropotted
in the mountain pass, and bad in'
fan try on the heights on every
side. Our men were compelled to
carry the place by storm. The
position seemed impregnable; large
craggy rocks protected tho enemy
on every side, while our men were
exposed to a galling lire.
A baud of rebels occupied the
ledge on the extreme right, as tho
colonel approached with a lew ot
his tneiu The unseen torce poured
a volley upon them. McNeil, on
the inatant, gave the command :
'1'our your fire upon those rocks.'
. The Bucktails hesitated ; it was
not an order that they had been
accustomed to receive; they had
always picked their men.
'Firo !' thundered the colonel ; 'I
tell you to fire at thosn rocks !'.
The men obeyed. For sonic time
an irregular fire was kept up; the
Bucktails sheltering themselves as
best they could behind rocks and
trees. On a sudden, McNeil caught
sightpf two rebels peering through
an opening m the works to get n
aim. The eyes of the men followed
their commander, and half a dozen
jfVifl$f were leveled in that direction,
f 'Wait a minute,' said the colonel,
'I will try my hand. Ihere is
nothing like killing two birds with
Tho two rftbcls were not in line,
but one stood a little distance back
ot the other, while just in front of
the foremojt was a slanting rock.
Colonel McNeil seized a rifle,
raised it, glanced a moment along
the polished barrel ; a report fol
lowed, and both the rebels disap

the men sprang up among the
rocks in an instant. The afirighted
rebels turned to run, but encount
ered another body of the Bucktails,
and were obliged to surrender.
Every one saw the object of the
colonel's order, to fire at random
among the rocks. Ho had sent
the party around to their rear, and
meant this to attract their attention.
It was a perfect success.
Tlie two rebels, by the opening
in the ledge, were found there stiff
and cold. Colonel McNeil's bullet
had struck the slauting rock in
front of them, glanced, and passed
through both their heads. There
it lay beside the J, flattened.

died from the cold, the Presiilnnt

Marwaoks is Fkcdal Timh.-
The law . of England was not ' ex
actly similar to this, although suf
ficiently barbarous to deserve the
execrations of all who respect "the
firivileges of woman. It was a
ucrative mode of extortion, even
so far as down to the days ot
Chatles I, both with the crown
and the inferior nobility, to sell
their wards in marriage. This most
barbarous custom gave to the lord
of the manor the right of tender
ing a husbaud to his female wards,
while under age, whom they could
not reject without forfeiting the
value ot the marriage; that is
without forfeiting at much as any
one chose to ofler the guardian for
such an alliance. And the larger
tho property of the ward, thelarger
was tho value of the marriage.
Thus, our fair readers will perceive
that in thoHe days of chivalry and
honor, ot knightly feeling, and ro
mantic generosity; when lances
were set in the rest to uphold the
beauty of an eyebrow or maintain
the perfection of an ankle ; when
the Queen of Love and Beauty
presided over the tournament held
in honor of the ladies; in those
chlvalric times they were bought
and sold like cattle, and men made
blanks and prizes of them in the
lottery of life.
The Contests of an Ostrich's
Stomach. The Lyons journals

ruffians succeeded in getting hold
of the ostrich kept in the Pare de"
la Tete d'Or, with a view ot strip
ping it of its feathers. The poor
bird was shortly afterwards found
Ivinir on the ground in a dying
state, having had ita neck almost
dislocated by the miscreants. After
its death, it was dissected by M.

Curious Epitaph near Warwick.

hesitation he handed to tbe other

some gold, adding, 'You say it was
