"FE( Ti I I.V i -r,'.Itnri TO Mti xATIITa PI- .
The Dahlia reass its flann'inr crest,
It' decked in rratire's gorgeous dyes,
Though in its garish, crlmson breast,
No scent or perfume essence lies.
'Twu thus it came. that outward oright
Ard gaily csd within its heart
No Swett t reatli lingers to detight:
But soulless, dead, it stsand apart.
The Red Rose bloomed in qeeenly guise
And scattered perfunme far and wide ;
The IDahlia looked with longing eye',
And stralbrhtway sought her for his bride.
I.rec time he wooed and oft he prssed
has ardent suit. and madly swore
Eterral faith-t',a' in Lis breast
No love like this e'e stirred before'
The Rose to this gave way at last :
"A constart orop will wear a atone."
Ard so their pie ge of love was passed;
lie joyous- she, with half-oeth tone.
Consent obtaired. the golden sands
Rolled merrily through life's crysta! vase :
W'th lPi'bius' reins in Cupid's hands.
The courser bound at a goodly pale.
But soon the Dahlia's parent came
l1cr doting. fond, maternal care,
Grew jealous that another's claim
ihould come between her and her heir.
So Wood-sorrel asked her son one day
Why is the IRose of crimson hue?
Time was, methlnks. when her array
Was white-unsullied save by dew
So Dahlia told, how people aid
The color was the dye of crime ;
And how the blood the sire had shed
Had stained the white of former time.
Straightway Wood-sorrel seized this plea
To sway her feeble minded son
To breakt the match, so he might be
Her's al alone ! Her darling one.
Base IDahlia yielded; filial love.
Or fear--or call it what you will.
Prevailed in his weak mind above
The dictates of love'a holy thrill.
eo. at a meeting of her court
The (Goddess Flora did decree
That l)ahlia's emblem should import
To mortals, instabtlity.
And .tnce that time the Dablia's bloom,
Th uagh gaudy, is without perfume.
Wbhll. Rtose is sAill the queen of fl,)wers
And brows in sweetnes all her hours.
A lady may be surpassingly beautiful in every
feature that constitutes a perfect and faultless
face, but if attired in a manner void of that dis
play of taste which the fashionable world deem
so essential for the getting np of a complete toilet,
her attractions become divested of half their bril
liancy and she lnevitably failds to elicit that degree
of admiration which her appearancs would other
wise have received. To guard effectually against
commlttitg such faux pas, she hua only to per
chase her dress goods from houses that are recog.
sized as always posemeing the latest and most
reclherchh styles, and where the proprietors are
admirtted to be thoroughly an ft in all matters
that require an exercise of artistic taste. 'Tis to

CHRII TMAN DAY.
ON THi STRIITS.
A conscionsness of the occasion and its attend
ant festivities was everywhere visible. All night
long, it may be said, gunpowder had been explod
ing, and the sounds of homeward-bound revelers
heard, but notwithstanding this, the morning, dawn
ing clear and cold, found everyone ready to begin
in good earnest the erjoyment of Christmas Day.
When the hour for morning service arrived, the
churches showed a numerous attendance of thank
ful worshllers. All the public offices closed at
11) A. x., and their occupants hurried themselves
off each to find san amusement suited to his taste.
The stores that remained open did a lively busi.
Less, and were crowded with pe-ople. The scene
ot C(anal street was one to be remembered for a
lifetime-payety and beauty reigned supreme upon
the sicewalks of the great thoroughfare. In the
countenarae of everyuue, rich or poor, young or
old, there seemed to beam a feeling of content
rc-ut which said: This is the day of peace and

Nor to that reepectable diner onu who, arrayed In

that sort of thing, you know, you know, went
home to his rooms at a comparatively early hour,
sirging ('nampagne ('barley, but inwardly con
vinced that his Christmas was over.
IN THn THRaTaiTA.
But it was at the places of amusement on Rt.
Charles street that the real scenes of the day
were to be beheld. To the juveniles of'New Or.
leans a Christmu without its matites would be
but half the day it ordinarily is. At the St.
C'haries, the little ones met good old Santa C('laus
Limself, standing just inside the doorway, with
sugar-loaf hat, long cloak, and frosty wig, dis
tributing gilts with a liberal hand. And once
within the theater, there awaited them a rare de
light in viewing the performanee of " Cinderella,"'
a dramatization of a nursery story which, we
wager, few of them did not know by heart.
The attendance here was very large,anl it was,
half an hour ofter the performance tegan, impos
sible to obtain a seat, unless it were ino the back
row of the top tier, or bade under the gallery in
the parquette. We have never seen the bailding
se der sely crowded as it was at that matinee, and
the performance passed off to tae evicent delight
of all present.
At the Academy, too, there was a'n attendance
of yocng people, which not only occupied every
seat in the building, (and if we are not mistaken
tb, re are twelve hundred or over) but crowded up
fv ry inch of standing roomt, even in the topmost
lhlerTy. Cne glance at the house from the point
we itntir n was a spectac'e not soon to be for
gotten. The players too took up the spirit of the
.. esoion, and "Undine" was presented with a
v.ii, Mrs. Oates be ing applauded to the echo.
Every cLiid visitor had rect - ed at the dor a gift,
and the contt ,iplatiou of these formed ly no
ntear a the least part of their innocent amusement.
In the venirg the pterformances were repeated
again, at .l at the Varieties, the fifth represents
tin of the "Lancashire Lass" was witnessed by
a very large audience. During the performance

All vas ':fe and gaoe'y. Many fam'lies, separ
ated throughout ti- Jear, were Friday re.
united, and once more looking upon each others'
laces, felt that the strong cords of affection yet
eaisted to bind them together in sweet commu
nion. l.Lner parties were, we preiutne, not
numerous, lor Chriseltis is a home day, and one
which is best enjoyed in the converse of home
ft Iks and under the smile of each man's own
l.rtsn and I'ccates. With evening came various
et-tertai,tneuts, y nd nr.ry a lab revel was held,
when the children, satiated with sugar-plums and
playthings, safe in bed, and the old tolks enjoy.

Iflks with laughter aend morciment gaily usnced

Ies't 1 their matinees at the theaters, the litt'e
foiks did not lack other reminders of the Christ
mas time. On Thursday evening the children of
the Christ Church Sunday chool, had a Christm s
tree at the Lyceum Hall, and the children of the
Sunday -,hio! of the Ca-rouodelet Street Methodijt
Clurch alho had an tentertan:mment. Both affairs
cere very well attended and were highly enjoyed,
not onuiy by the Itle ones, bat hy their elders who
were presont. On Clhrtstmts flay, at 3 o'clock.t
Mission School, which is loeated away back on
P'oydras strcet, gave an entertainment to the chil
dren. The scholars of this Institution are mainly
newsboys, and their sisters and their friends; and
many of them, brought up in dirt and squ slid pov
erty, had never heard a kind word until they en
tered the Mission chool, and had never known
that the r ame of God meant anything else but an
oath, until they were taught by the ladies and
gentlcmen who went amongst them for that pur.
peso. The children aasembted in National Hall,
on Poydras street, sear Liberty, where, after sing
irg one of their hymns, they surrounded the to
blesspread for them, and were soon hard at work
conosnming good things. Cakes, candy, ralanim,
apples and oranges were there in profusion. The
delight of the children was beautifultl to see. Their
e)-es glistened with pleasure, they jamped up and
,cas in h.eir excitement, and seemed almost wild
wrh the unusual treatment they were experieno.
ir R. Bt wheb , after the feast, when their pock.
et, were all filled, and each had a bundle to take
h n e to mother, the teachers each presented to
their tciholars some little ( hristme. token-a book,
a bag oe bulbous, a top, a doll, a bunch of fire.
crakers- their pleasure culminated, and they
sromid to i ave reached the acme of human blises.
An hour or so spent thus, and the children sepa
rated, going beck to their poverty and their
w:etched heomes, but having had, we hope, a
gleam of light thrown across their dark life paths,
that they will not soon forget And the teachers
went back to their comfortable homee and hot
dinners none the less happy, we warrant, for hav
ing tried to make some little ones remember that
(bChrist was born on Christmu day. l·st evening,
at the Lyceuom Ball, a magic lantern exhibitioa
and coencert was given to ramise a library for the
Bbndaby school of St. Peter's (Episcopal) chnrgh.

"lMAJES, nUT POOR PAI .
In one of your papers of last week. you have a
good anecdote about a minister and his marriage
fees. He having been taunted by a man with I
the amount he made in marriage fees, proposed to
give one balf of his next fee to the man for a
bushel of potatoes. His proposal was accepted, I
and the very next day on marrying a couple he
was offered a nice young terrier pup as fee.
That there is a good deal of truth in the idea
meant to be conveyed by the anecdote, any one
who has been brought into close acquaintance
with the ministers of the Gospel, and the Metho
dist church in particular, can certify to; its truth
struck me, and brought up rome things I wot
of and here I give them to you.
Why people should think they have any more
tight to tax the time, health, and labor of a min.
ister without paying for it than of a doctor or I
law er, I cannot tell, but that does seem to be
the idea, and should he rectified. They and their
fanmiltes have to live, to eat and be clothed as
well as any ore else, but many folks seem blind
oa that point.
When I was a young girl the country town in
which I lived could not boast a regular parsonage
ofl ey kind, and nearly every house in it was
owned by the oocupants. Though the Methodists
w re a w' alti y 3ad influential denom nation tier ,
there never was any certainty that the new
p.ref,,er wou!d have a rettled home, when the
,nterence changed the circuit rider, which it
i r sen etirees every year, and certtlnly every
two 3ears. My mother-who was a strict meu
her of that chorch, and almost 'iiaker like in
Sreies sad al pearance, living up to the closest
Ule. of the louder of it-had a large, old
fasbioned, rambling house, with far more room I
than needed for her family. So one year when
the church had been informed that a married
man with a family had been sent them that
ear, and were in a quandary what to do about
a house large enough rfor him, she proffered
pa't of her's for their use, and it wai accepted.
\ ae yuongslers when talking it over among our.
se:ves did not relish the idea of the preacher liv
i;: excEtty in the same house with us. as we
f'.red the -trictness would be a little mrne than
we could bear with comfort, but our house was
ut,e where the parents ra'ed, not the children, and

M Yy Brevt PWed-I desre to emes l yes In
regard to your singularly unkind treatment of the
, njuas, for whom I appear as counsel "for this
or occalion only." Your action towards our Red
Brethren is not only obnoxious but exceedingly
unpleasant to them. and would seem to emanate be
from a spirit of prejudile on account of their pre
color. (Vide Blakektone's Commentaries, pp. u
1776.) Besides your course is not justifed by the ti,
r? evidence in the case. What have they done that
you should parasue them thualy, destroying their pir
scalps with which they were born, defacing their
d residences, and scattering death and canned shot
among their 'appy 'anting grounds ? Is t gentle
You msy they burned the homes of our pale
faces (with red noses), scal'oped the men, mear
dered the women, and killed the childreno; and '

destroyed. Now. Phil. suppose they did, what of ,
I'? They wasn't to blame. They didn't know
what they did. The was "insane!" You "
y re dn't take y word for it; but if you'll come an
u; to New York or pay my expenses (and me) out tlo
to where you are, I'll show you plenty of prece- tel
dents from trials going on and gone on, that them
, ir juns ain't legally responsible for klllin. They m
'got excited, and for a moment was reckless and p
made mince meat out of some of our white set jfm
tiers, which it was a settler onto them, of course;
but if you'll get bail and give me 60 or 90 days,
I'll detonastrate to the satisfaction of any 12 men
selected from their most respectable savage Ai
tribes that they was "insane" when they went sea
r. into the messakreein busianes, or I'll prove a lul
laby. ( Vide Tommy Hawk on Froataspiece, let

Then there are other resons why you should be
mercdul to your-injun. " They can't help their
color-haven't they soles?" Hey? Why not.
