Then Joseph her husband, being Jubi man, and not witling to make her a public example, was minded to put her way privllv. 20. But while he thought on these things, behold, tbe angel of tbe Lord ap peared unto him in dream, saying, Jo seph, thou sen of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of tin Holy Ohoat, 21. And she shall bring torth a son, and thou shall call his name JESUS: for he the i asve his people from their sins. 22. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, anying, 23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, end shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being in terpreted is, God with ua. 24. Then Joseph bsing raised from sleep did aa the angei of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wile: 25. And knew her not till she had brought forth her firttborn son: and he called hla name JEsL'S. and wrote, saying, His name is John. And the ? marvelled all, 81, And his mouth was opened immedi ate y, and his tongue looted, and he spake and praised God. 65. And fear oame on all that dwelt round about them; and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judea. 66. And all they that heard Mess laid them up In their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be? And the hand of the Lord was with him. 67. And his father .tch arias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying: 68. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for ha hath visited and redeemed his people, 6m. And ha Qi raised up a horn of salva tion for us in the house of his servant David; 70. Aa be spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have Dean since the world began; 1. That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us ; 72. To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant; 73. The oath whioh he aware to our father Abraham, 4. That he would grant unto ua, that we, being delivered out of the hand of our enemies, might serve him without fear, 6. In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life. 76 And thou, clild, shait be called the prophet cf the Highest : for thou ahslt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his wsys; 77. To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins, n. Thiough the tender mercy of our God; whereby the day spring from on hleh hath visited us, 78. 7r give light to them that alt in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our leet into the way of peace. 80. And tbe child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, snd was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel. 81 Luke. 2d r hatter, 1st to 21at verse. 1.

Joh.i did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism ot repentance for the remission of tins. t. a And there went out unto him all the gal of Judea, and they of Jerusalem, and Hi fere all baptized of him in tbe river of Jordan, confessing their sins. 5 And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of akin about his loins : and he did eat locusts and wild honey; 7. And preached, saying. There oometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am noi worthy to stoop down and unloose, 8. I Indeed Lave baptized you with water: but He shall baptise you with tbe Holy Ghost. 9. And it came to pass in thoae days, that J eons came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan, 10. And slrsightwsy coming up out of the water, he aaw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a do-re descending upon elm. 11. And there came a voice from heaven, sarins, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Bt. Luke, let chapter, A-th to both verse. 2b. And in the aixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of 43 alii ee, named Nazareth. 27. To a virgin eapoused tj a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David ; and t-'te virsin's name vol Mary. 28. Ard the angel came in unto her, and aid. Halt, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord u with thee : blessed art thou among women. 29. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, snd cast in her mind what manner of animation this houid be. 30. And tbe angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary : for thou hast found favour with God. (1, And. behold, thou ahslt oonceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call hia name JESUS. 82. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son ol the Highest; and the Lord God e.'iall give unto him the throne of his father Kavid: S3. And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever ; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. 84. Then ssid Mary unto tbe angel, How ahall this be, seeing I know not a man 7 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon the, and ihe power of the Highest ahsil overshadow thee : therefore also that holy thing which ahall be born of thee hall be called the Son of God. 36. And, behold, thy oousln Elizabeth, she bath also conceived a son in ber old age; and this it the sixth month with her, who was called barren. 37. For with Uod nothing ahall be im possible. X. And Mary said, Behold the hand maid of the Lord ; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from ber. 39. And Mary arose in thoae days, and went into the hill oountry with haste, into a city of Judah; 40. And entered into the house of .ach arlaa, and sainted Elizabeth. 41. And it came to pass, that, when Elizabeth heard the aalutatlon of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Eliza beth was filled with the Holy Ghost : 42. And ahe spake out with a loud voice, and said. Blessed art thou among women, nd blessed u the fruit of thy womb. 41. And whence ta this to me, thst the mother of my Lord should some to me? 44. For, lo, aa soon aa the voice of thy aalutatlon Bounded in mine ears, she babe leaped in my womb for J iy. 45. And bleaaea is she tbst believed: for there shall be s performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. 46. And Z'trj said, My soul dotb mag nify the Lord. 47. And my spirit bath njolced to God, my Saviour. 48. For he hath regard the low estate of his handmaiden: for, 6 hold, from henceforth sll generations shall "sJl n bleated. 49. For he thst Is mighty hath done to me great things ; and holy is his name. 60. And his mercy it on them that fear Ltm from generation to generation. 61. He hath shewed strength with hia arm; be ha.h acattered the proud In the Imagination of their hearts, 62. He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low de gaan ot. He hath filled the hungry with good thin'; snd the rich he hath sent empty away. 54. He ha'h holpen hie servant Israel, In ramembnuK of hit mercy ; 65. Aa he spake to our fathers, to Abra ham, and to hia seed forever. 66. And Mary abode with her about three months, snd i!tnrned to ber own house. 67. Now Elizabeth's full tTO earns that ahe ebould be delivered; and ahe iurought forth a son. 68. And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they retoiced with bar. 69. And it oame to pass, that on tbe eighth day they oame to oircumclae the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father. 00. And hla mother answered and said, Not at; bat he shall be called John, 61. And they ssid onto her, There Is none of thy kindred that la called by this Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. 2 And this taxing was first made wben Cy renins was governor of Syria, 3. And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city, ft. And Joseph also went up from Gali lee, cut of tbe city of Nazareth, into 3udea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, (because he was ol the house and lineage of David,) 6. To be taxed with Mary, hia espoused wife, being great with child. 6. And so it waiV that, while they were there, tbe days were accomplished thst she should be delivered. 7. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him In swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger ; because there was no room for them in the inn, 8. And there were in the ssme country shepherds sbidlng in the field, keeping wstch over their dock by night. 9. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them ; and they were sore afraid. 10. And the angel laid unto thsm, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which ahall be to all people. 11. Fcr unto you Is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12. And this shall he s sign unto you ; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swad dling clothes, lying in s manger. 13. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude ot the heavenly host praislr g God, snd saying, 14. Glory to God In the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. 15. And it came to pass, aa the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known to us. 16. And they came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe ly ing in a manger. 17. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was toll them concerning this child. 15. And sll they thst heard at wondered at thoae things which were told them by the shepherds, 19. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. 20. And the shepherds returned, glori fying and praising God for all tbe things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them, 21. And when eight days were accom plished for the circumcising of tbe child, hia name was called JEsl'S, whioh was so named of the angel before he was con ceived in the womb. publican, to appoint a committee to con sult the governor, and other authorities, as to tbe proper action to be taken with reference to the u a fortunate troubles In Chicot county, and ascertain what could be done to relieve the people of thst county, who sre sufferers by reason of the present condition of affairs there. 'the meet tne ha viae been called to or der, Dr F. M. Chrlsman was called to the chair, and Captain J, W. Martin appointed secretary. Judge English stated a delegation of Chicot county people was In oonsuitstion with the governor at the time, and sug gested that tne meeting adjrmrn over un til the result of the conference was known This suggestion was amended so ss to be subject to the cell of the ohatrman, and was thus adopted by the meeting. Carter McClellan, negro, made s short speech, the substance of which was to as aura the white citizens that the black people were in sympathy with them in their efforts to restore peace and order in the troubled portions ot the State Hie remarks gave great satisfaction, and the meeting ad)0urned as per Judge fcngllsh's motion. THS SITUATION. Tbe Little Rock Journal (Radical) Bays: We learn both from tbe Governor and from General Reynolds, who reached here last night from Chicot, that the re ports of ravishing and various other ex oeeaea reported by the telegrams, sre not true. The mob have charge of the town and seem to be holding It under system. They have pressed prisoners and mules etc.. Into use, but otherwise have not Interfered with the rights of citizens. The only wanton deatruotlon perpetrated up to the time of General Reynolds' departure, was that of Gar rett'a store. The mob seem to be under control. The fact that they hold the town as they do, probably arises from s tear that if they disperse the whites will retaliate. In this state of tbe case we think It Is neces sary that the sltustion demands the pres ence of a power whioh will be an assur ance to both races of mutual protection. We believe the only dsnger there springs from s mutual fear of each other, by whites and colored. TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. WASHINGTON.

Terrific ExdImIm li New York -Part of tbc City to TetaJ Darkaet. New Yob k, December 24 About six o'clock last evening the purifying-house attached to the Metropolitan Gas compa ny's work:., on Forty-second street, be tween Eleventh and Twelfth avenues, ex ploded with tremendous concussion. The building was demolished, and immediate ly afterward the ruins were discovered to be on fire The flames were extinguished before communicating to any other de partment ot the worka. The causa of the explosion was gas es caping from tbe purifying department and isnKlng in a body. Toe oonouasion was terrible. Windows were smashed by cores in tenement houses near by. The noise ol the explosion was like that sup posed to be made by an earthquake. No one was injured, except Patrick McGrath, a fireman, and be not seriously. A fright ful calamity waa averted by the presence of mind of one of the employees of tbe company, who, by shutting the galea leading to the mains thus out oH the gas from the houses. But for this precaution there might have been gas explosions all over this district. The escape of the workmen employed in this branch of works was due to very fortunate clrcum stsriTes. A few days ago an alteration was made in their hours for labor, so thst they were enabled to knoek 08 Bt 5:80 p.m., Instead of 6. Had the old rule an to boure been in force, hundreds of lives would have been sacrificed. From Thirty-fourth street to Sixty-fifth street, on tbe weet side, and to Fifty -seventh street, in one part of Sixty-filth street, in anoth er portion of the east side streets, the store were left in total darkness. This state of affairs will probably last a week. Loes, ajO.OOO.

Tho account of tbe troubles In this county heretofore published In theGazetUs, is ssid to be substantially correct cy parties who ded to save themselves and families from tbe insults ot the mob, Memphis papers containing later accounts than we have published, state that a num ber of stores were sacked and burned, and other outrages committed, Tbe mob has fall sway. This baa been the case now for more then a week- That many of tbe reports of tbe outrages are exaggerated is to be expected but toe fact mat all tne prominent cltlzsna hare left far fear ol violence, and acme of them are now in this city, shows s fearful condition of affairs. This information has been In the nosaeesion of tbe Executive for eeversl days. He has sent his adjutant general to quell tbe dis.urosnce, but oBAVB APFKKBaNSlONS exist, among many citizens that General Daniorth's visit will not hsve the desired fleet. The sheriff of tbe county, we understand, haa declared thii only Federal troops can restore order, for the reason be fears tbe militia might fraternise with the mob. A FDBUC MIXTINO waa called yesterday, by persons repre sent;."" sil political parties, with a view or srpoiur:? committee lo wait on tbe executive to aaCtre him that they were ready and anxious to strengthen him in any effort he might deem advisable to suppress the disorder. Bat the governor Intimated thst s meeting of this kind would be distasteful to him. Why !'. should be obnoxious for the governor of the Btste to be Informed by the people of all parties and colors of their readiness to assist him In quailing s riot snd restor ing peace snd quiet to an OUTKAOBD OOStatUNITY. We oar net gee. In tbe meantime Gene ral Dantortb baa gone down to Cbioot. What he can do to suppress the mob, ar rest tbe ringleaders, and restore peace, we do not know. The governor, we believe, la unwilling to take any further action until he hears from his adjutant. Daring all thia time, however, the people of Chit county are subject to the whims snd caprices of a mob. We believe, with the Journal, that "the sltustion demands the presence of a power whioh will be an assurance to both races oi mutual protec tion." HADLBY INTXKVIXWnjl. In an Interview with Governor Hadley nusnts. niwMlni the excesses oom- mKfed in Chicot countv by a negro mob, tbe Gazette reporter did not glean any ad ditional faote to thoae already given in this psper.

The Governor dispatched Adjutant General Danforth to the scene of the late vio lence, with full powers to quell and set tle tbe matter.

A few dsys since tbe owner of several thousand acres of land in the richest cotton-growing portion of Mississippi de cided to set apart small farms of sixty acres each, for sixty families, or sixty men married or single, who will go there and work, aa they can to more profit than iu the North.
