Constitution, will meet on next WHO WAS ST. NICHOLAS. Many of our readers might ho puzzled to answer who was, or rather tvho is San ta Claus? Any child can tell, especially if you put hint the question at the Christ mas time. What! you don't know Santa Claus, who goes frisking over the world the night before Christmas, with his bundle of good things on his back? Nim bly he leaps down every chimney and fills the baskets and stockings around the hearth wall. How often have our little friends dreamed all through the blessed night of Christmas eve, of the good Santa Claus and his expected gifts! Santa Claus then, or St. Nicholas, as he is more prop erly called, is the especial patron of the children. He was archbishop of Myra, in Asia Minor. He lived in the fourth century of the Cliriseianera. Simplicity, modesty, and a boundless charity charac terized'the saint. From the time of death great honors were paid him, both iu tlie Greek and Latin churches, 1 'and numerous altars and shrines were dedi cated to God under his patronage. With the Russians St. Nicholas has ever been a favorite saint. In tho vear 1807, certain merchants of Bari, an Italian seaport, on the Adriatic succeeded in carrying off the relics of St. Nicholas from Myra. Num erous miracles were said to have been wrought at Bari on the arrival of the sac red remains. The saint's sbriim at Bari has ever since been a resort of pious pil grims. The childlike virtues of the saint and the peculiar aid he extended to young people during his life, are the chief reasons why lia is so frequently represent ed in pictures by three youths. tl A HKIW» COYLE—BBATTON,—On Tuesday, Janu ary 2d, 1S77. by Rev.

The republican Senators were natur. ally not displeased with tho result of the examination of Mr. Cronin, the Oregon elector, by the Senate Inves tigating Committee to-day. Senator Mitchell was quite tickled at tho ac knowledgment make by the witness that he had received $3,000 in gold nominally to pay bis expenses in com ing East as messenger with the demo cratic electoral vote. The committee say that they are pre pared to prove by competent witnesses that a large amount of money has been used in the Oregon electoral case which will reach at least $17,000. It is due to Mr. Cronin to state that, as he is a lawyer and basa practice of about $6,000 a year in Portland, and, as some of hi« cases were coming on in court, be put it that if he were to act in the capacity of messenger and leave his business lie would expect to be paid for his time und expenses, the value of which he placed at $3,000 The committee promise forlher and higher developments.

The Governor's Message has been com mented on by the members generally who consider it as an aide and valuable State paper. Some of the members criti" cizedthe strictures on "State Aid" for Railroads. His denunciation of the ras" cality and desperate course of the leaders of the Republican party to continue in power is a well written article and de serves tlie commendation it is receiving here. The act known as the "Dog Tax Law," will in all proliability be repeated tliis session. Tlie Exemption law will also be chang ed, one of the amendments proposed is to make the defendant the first executive creditor and allowing him $275 in money or goods to that amount.,to be bid for ami bought by himself. This is received with considerable favor and no doubt will be the modification desired. An act to change tlie law ih relation to Sheriff's printing is exciting some com ment. This, if passed, will place the mat ter exactly as it was under the old law. A joint caucus was held last night to discuss the present political crisis. No proposition was acted upon but an ex change of words disclosed the fact that all were of one accord in denouncing tlie gross usurpation of the government by Grant and his bad advisers.
