CHKIHTHAtM Afler a atormy prelude, and the rain laden clouds hare discharged their burthen, Christmas hat come again. Bat whether it make its appearance in sunshine or storm, mid mud, slush, rain, sleet or snow, it is still, as it has been for ages past over a!l the christian world", the same merry Christmas gladly welcomed by prattling children, youth in its bounding vigor and beauty, and by age in its decrepitude. There is nothing left for as to say that has not been said over and orer again upon this eventful day. It is the Id stcry.and yet fresh and sweet to-day as a tltoosand years ago. "And she brought iurih her first-born son, and wrapped him in swaddling-clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn." It was for this that the world had waited; it is to this that the world looks back. A winter night; a stable in a lit tle eastern town; a virgin mother; a new born babe; poverty, suffering, obscurity; i that all? "Behold," said the angel to the wondeting shepherds, "I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.'.' And even so it has been. All along the ages the angels' oog - hv rung, and t day the glad tidings are echoed among all people: "For unto you is born this day, in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord." Do we doubt it? "Let us now go even onto Bethlehem, and see this thing which the Lord hath made known unto as." We know what the shepherds foond at Bethlehem: "They found Mary and -Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger." The history of eighteen hundred years tells us the significance of that wonderful nativity. Chrismasday, in its all-pervading gladness, in the wide-spread popular rejoicing, preaches its own sermon. It makes believers of us a'L We may , doubt and question, and deride and scoff, but there is not one of us who does not to-day, in his very heart, in some way feel the power of this thing which hath come to pass. There ia na escaping it. All that we have that is worth the having of knowledge, freedom, love and peace, we trace back to that first Christmas dny at Bethlehem, and we fee) that the world is what it is because the Babe was born. Past events of history, tremendous as they seemed to the generations that witnessed them, are of less moment to us than the little concerns of our everyday-life; but the event which gives us the festival of Chilstmas is universal and unfading. It was not only the beginning of a new era, it was the center of all human history. It is the one day that seems to gather all other times into itself, and to stretch its influence through every hour of human exist ence. Even in the struggle and turmoil of an age intensely practical, the customary Christmas greeting is no empty ceremonial. It has a real, substantial, hearty meaning, Ruddy, jocund, and covered with holly, the figure of Christmas has been, for ages, to a't English-speaking peoples, the type and symbol of mirth, and jollity, and iarge-handed liberality. Who can read the otd ballads, the Christmas carols, dating back hundred! of years, or even the modern stories oi Irving and Dickens, and a host of writers less famous than they, without a glow of the heart and a warmer, friendlier feeling to ward those ancestors of ours, who, in English halls and cottages, gladdened the day with gifts, and good cheer, and merry games, and almost childish unrestraint of enjoyment? Nevertheless, beneath all this mirth there was a fitting undertone of religious observ ance. There was an absence of the wilder spirit of license; a thoughtful charity that forbade even the wandering beggar to be turned empty-handed from the door; a re membrance of faithful servitors, and a ten der care for the happiness of the little ones of the household. It was by this gracious consideration for others that Christmas has Dcen made specially memorable for many centuries. It was thus, joyously, in those days they celebrated the anniversary of the Savior's birth, and that sweet angelic "an them," which was heard nearly ' nine teen centuriea ago by trembling shep herds on the plain of Bethlehem. The mistletoe, the only remaining relic of the ancient superstition of the Druids, hung )u the center of the room, to catch unwary maidens; the miracle-plays, and the sacred mysteries, as well as the quaint mummeries of the olden time, have passed away with toe change in the thoughts, habits, and en tile outward life of the people. Neverthe less, as ia remoter days, Christmas comes to us crowned with scarlet berries and winter gteenery; still keeps his scepter, and is still welcomed as the harbinger of joy and glad ness. And Christmas and the Christmas season will assuredly be welcomed bo long as the christian believer continues to love the day and to remember its sacred significance; to love peace, and charity and good-will; to love little children and their caressing ways, and the sweet Saxon word " home ;" to re member the hallowed land of Judea, the "glad tidings of great joy" that angels brought; the gliding Star and the divine Child to whom the magi of the east brought t.-ibutea of myrrh and frankincense as it lay cradled in the manger at Bethlehem. 1 UK WORim OF A SOBLK DEXO. CHAT. Although there ia a majority of blacks over wiitea in Charleston, South Carolina, the Democrats ia the recent election for mayor Beared a glorious victory over the bolting Democrat, who, like Judge Flippin, sought aa election by betraying his party and by pan dering for the Radical vote. Flemmiag, the Independent candidate, made a trade with the Republican leaders, but it seems the Re publican mftises preferred an honest partisan to a trading renegade, and Sale, the Demo cratic nominee, ia a Republican city, was locted by a majority of over three thousand. A few days since Mayor Sale was installed in v'Bce, and ia hie inaugural address he says: fhis administration ia Democratic elected by the straight-out Democracy of Charleston. It is nut proposed to disband the party or ig nore 'party lines. Men work out their own salvation. The future before us is full of difficulties and perils. While doing strict justice to all, let us consolidate our power, as Democrats, in the hands, not of outsiders or enetnus, but of those by whose patriotic ex ertions we have been placed in public office as representatives of the great Democratic party." These words will blister the eyes and eat to the vitals of the creature here in Mem phis who has deserted the party that has twice made him Hs nominee, and is seeking an election by trading for Radical votes. HABTERIXU AS1) TBADIB6, The Independents and the Bepublicans of th's city are endeavoring to atiike a trade, not only in the municipal election, but which is to control all future elections. The con tracting parties have been negotiating for several days, and we shall endeavor to keep the readers of the Appeal, posted as to the bartering and trading. At the last meeting of the Republicans, it waa resolved to run no candidates for mayor, and to support Flippin, provided that Flippin . and his friends would join them in defeating the regular Democrat ic nominations next August and give the Re publicans a portion of the office. Judge Flippin willjbe asked to ratify the bargain, and we will advise our readers of his answer. Since he has sold out his party, he will not scrapie at any bargain, that will gratify his mania for office. In Georgia, the Demo cratic party waa so strong, and they have so many Flipping who want office, that there is talk of an Independent party. In comment ing on this movement, the Atlanta Constitu tion says: Howbelt, as far as Mr. Hares and his southern poller are concerned, titer bars no part or parcel In what, for the sake of eonrenleo.ee, we have termed the independent movement. Postmaster-General Key need not natter himself In this respect. He need not hope for a break In the ranksot the De mocracy of the sooth most certainly not in Georgia. We bare our little wrangles and disputes, and we mar occasionally give each other an unfriendly cuff on the ears, but these are family matters lUJe dif ferences that are settled almost as soon astber originate. We mar applaude some of Mr. Hayes's appointments, and approve his endeavors to pacify the sections and restore good government to the south, but In this neither Mr. Bores nor Mr. Key should misunderstand us. When the Democrats of beorgla And themselves confronted by the party that has brought the desolation and disaster of bad gov ernment! upon the south; that has pursued and persecuted our unhappy people with an Ingenuity and persistence bom of the most Intolerable ma lignity the world has ever seen; that has robbed and swindled the country to the right and left: that has toyed with and trampled upon the liberties of citizens: that has oonoelved and consummated an electoral fraud of such magnitude that the country ran, even st this day, scarcely realize Its extent when the Democrats of Georgia And themselves confronted by this party, neither the hopes of Mr. Hayes nor the remarkable confidence of Mr. Key can point to a break In the long, steady lines of pa triots and frebmen. Georgia will be solid and the suoth will be solid, and they will remain solid until the last vestige of. Br Ileal misrule Is swept out of the land. If there be any evils in the organization of the Democratic party, these evils can be cor rected in the party and by the party. If Flippin's friends had .attended the mass meeting that selected the executive com mittee, as they did the Flippin ratification meeting, they could have secured nine of the eleven members of the executive committee, as they did two years ago, when Flippin was nominated. But Flippi was afraid to trust the party that had given him all the offices and honors he had asked, and, instead of going before his party for an indorsement and nomination, he repudiates his party and calls a meeting composed of the best Demo crats, and the most substantial citizens of Memphis a " thing." The fear of defeat by his party and his lust for office inspired Flip pin'with a determination to be a candidate; and now that he is a political renegade, we find him negotiating with the Radicals for the complete overthrow of the Democratic party of Shelby county and the restoration to power of the men who have plundered, dis franchised and persecuted tbe southern peo ple. If Memphis will consult her own inter ests, she will continue in perfect accord wih the people of the south, upon whom she is dependent for that patronage and trade that builds up a city. This is a duty she owes to the Democrats party of the southern States. Surely, it cannot be forgotten how, in the dark days of her '.oppression, when there seemed to be no end of Radical malignity toward her, that party unceasingly fought her battles, both on the floor of congress and through the public press. When Butler, Blaine and : all the rest of their clique had an overwhelming majority in the forty-third congress, and were pressing their 'civil-rights bill, by which they hoped to degrade her socially, and their force bill, by which they hoped to t?ke away from her the great writ of habeas corpus, and binding her hand and foot, give her over to the tender mercies of an executive greedy and anxious to become her military dictator, who came to her rescue, and actually pre- vented this last outrage, but the Democratic members of that congress? And to what but the efforts of that party does the south owe it to-day that she is loosed from her trammels, and can manage her own affairs without fear of molestation by United -States troops? Truly, for Memphis now to desert those who stood by her in the darkest days of her adversity would be the basest ingrati tude. The election of Flippin over the Demo cratic nominee by the Radical vote, the resto ration of the old Radical leaders to power by a trade with the Radicals which is to control the elections in this city and - county, will make Memphis an asp in the bosom of the south, hostile to the political sentiments of the surrounding country, which only a few weeks ago repudiated precisely such a bar gain as is proposed between Judge Flippin and the Rejjublicanjartyj THK DERADATIOI OV bVIDAY. It will be seen from another column that a correspondent charges Mayor F:ppin with desecrating a negro church on Sunday night by announcing himself a candidate and elec tioneering with the negroes. We heard nothing of this charge until late last night. It presents Judge Flippin in such a wicked light before the pubic that we think there is some mistake about the matter, and there fore reserve any comments until we know more of the facts. If it, however, be hue, as alleged by our correspondent, that Mayor Flippin did desecrate the holy Sabbath, and profane the altar dedicated to the worship of God, he might aa well abandon the contest for mayor, for this is a religious, civilized community, wb'ch respects the (Sabbath and places of worship, and it will never elect a man mayor of Memphis who profanes the one and desecrates the other. It is said that the Radicals almost despair of driving a satisfactory trade with Flippin. True to the instincts of bis selfish and un grateful nature, he wants and expects Radi cal support, without giving anything in re turn. Flippin is always ready to give a sin gle pledge, and that is to hold his present office until he can get another and a better one. . ACoaple of "Plaweer" Banker oat the wiaav Sax Fbakcisco, December 22. The Bid' tetin this evening publishes a statement that it has been discovered that Duncan and L. E. Warno, of rioneer-bank notoriety, have for several weeks been concealed in a house on Union street; that their presence waa discov ered by a neighbor, who notified the mayor last I riday that he kaew of their where abouts, ana was told to communicate with the chief of police; that next day (Saturday) he eent a written communication to the chief, informing him of the place where Duncan and Warne were concealed; that the chief took no action until Monday; and that, in the meantime, both fugitives fled. Mayor Bry ant corroborates the statement that he waa notified as stated, but Chief Kirkpatrick de nies that he received the information as al leged, and claims thai there is nothing in the story. The creditors of the Pioneer bank have called the attention of the grand jury to the subject for the purpose of having the chief of police examined in connection with the affair.

Argus, 19th: The old saying that "murder will out" has again been illustrated. During the month of November, 1863, in the small mining village of York town, Carbon county, Pennsylvania, George K.

The circumstances of tbe killing were that a gang of coal miners, numbering about twenty, visited the place, and, as they were strangers, one of the as sistants of the murdered superintendent. ness in Philadelphia, at the corner I"!

I l . 1 J . , . 1 1 oi aixui ana wnesxnui streets, mux aim there would be trouble, as he had overheard one of the strangers say that that night would be one of the most eventful Yorktown had ever Been. ' The murdered man replied he guessed not as he had never done any ot those people any harm. During the night the superintendent's house was visited by the gang and . Ulick was wounded in the neck and' Smith's wife and sister-in-law were also shot at. Smith, who waa unwell at the time, came down stairs undressed, and -as shot and instantly killed. The one who fired the shot was identified as James M'Don ald, who escaped, and has ever since evaded the law. He was traced to Nevada, Iowa, Missouri, and other sections of the west, where he has lived under half a dozen aliases, until finally one of the Pinkerton force caught him at work for Henry & Southall, at Hampton, where he had lived about two months and a half. While at Hampton . he was considered one of the best men in the mines. The descrip tion in possession of the detectives is so accurate in all its details that there is no doubt that he is the man. Accordingly Sheriff Perkins and Constable Chas. Hanne wacker, of Hampton, madehe arrest at Hampton at about twelve o'clock last night, and brought him to this city and lodged him in our county jail to await the necessary le gal proceedings. A reporter from the Argus visited the prisoner in jail this afternoon, and found him very reticent concerning the affair. He is a man of forty-live, with heavy, gray, bushy hair and whiskers, giving him the appearance of a man of sixty. He does not appear to be a bad man; says he has no education, but evidently knows more than he is willing to telL , He admits of living in Yorktown at the time of the murder, but don't seem to remember anything about it. He has a wife living near Yorktown, to whom he has sent money; says he has three chil dren living. ' He protests his innocence, and seems unconcerned about the result. The warrant for his arrest was issued by 'Squire Hayden. The prisoner will be sent to Chi cago this evening for preliminary examina tion. . - . THK CAPTURE OF JOHN REtLLY. New York Times: John Reilly, the no torious pickpocket and burglar of war days, was arrested last evening at the corner of Broadway and Forty-fourth street, shortly after six o'clock, by Captain Ward and Offi cer John Cottrell of the twenty-second pre cinct, for the murder of Officer John O'Brien of the fourteenth precinct, in August, 1864. He was locked up in the twenty-second pre cinct stationhonse, and Superintendent Walling was informed of his capture. At the rime of the murder, which was one of the most cold-blooded on record, John Reilly was the most troublesome man in New York to the police. He waa singularly hand some tall, well-knit, with a head of . luxuri ant bLifk, early hair, and black mustache; of fine manners, insinuating address, and pos sessed of great courage. He was an athletic man, and a dead shot. He became the most skillful and successful pickpocket iu the me tropolis, and baffled all attempts to con vict him. He at one time lived with two women. One was the then notoiious Betsy Mars, and the other was the no less notorious Addie Flvnn. These women were smart, in telligent and good-looking, and were of great service to Reilly in' his profession, acting as decoys for his selected victims. Reilly finally became a housebreaker, and at one time was considered the most daring burglar of that kind in the country. He made money, spent it freely, dressed well, aad lived "on the top of the heap." During the riots of 1863 he broke in tbe cutlery store ot John rarr, situated at No. 647 Eighth avenue. He secured a great quantity of plunder, successfully disposed of it, and escaped, bo closely was be pursued by the police for this burglary, and so great became the public indignation against him on account of his many and bold operations, that he decided to leave the city. This he did, going no one knew where, and remained away about a year, lie returned during tbe iatter cart of the summer of 1864. bupenn tendent Walling was then captain of the Twentieth precinct. Omcer John O Jonen was attached to Captain Wallintr s Drecinct. and reported to him : that Reilly had returned; that he was acting without concealment, and that be could probably ar rest him. Walling detailed O'Brien to make the arrest. Reilly neard that O'Brien was in pursuit of him, and boasted that he neither would leave town nor be arrested. He circu lated his boast far and wide, and gave the police to understand that it "would be a risky job for the man. that should attempt to take him in." On the evening on whith the murder occurred O'Brien heard that . Reilly was in the then infamous saloon on the coner of Forty-first street and - Ninth avenue, kept by Mclntyre & Reynolds. . He at once went there. Reilly was informed of the f act that the officer was coming, but was not disconcerted by the intelueence. and made no attempt to escape. but placed himself in such a position in the bar-room that he had perfect command of the door through which O'Brien would enter, It was known that Reilly was in a desperate mood and well armed. He was surrounded by friends, and he had no hesitation in tell ing them what he would do if any officer at tempted to take him, calling himself a perse cuted man, "hounded by the police." At last a step was heard outside the door. Silence at once prevailed in the saloon, and every breath was held, and every eye was fixed on Reilly. He stood perfectly motion less, with his eyes bent inflexibly on the door. The knob turned, the door opened, and John O'Brien was about to come in. His eye met Reilly 's; a look of recogni tion passed between the two, and during the almost inconceivable short space of time oc cupied by the mutual stare, Reilly drew a large revolver so quickly that it was hardly noticed, ana leveling it w u onen nrea. xne ball went straight into .the policeman's heart. He fell dead across the threshold, without uttering a word, his hand relaxing its hold upon the door-knob. Reilly coolly placed the revolver in his pocket, bade good-bye to bis friends, passed out the door over O'Brien's corpse, and disappeared. No trace of him was afterward found. The excitement over this murder was intense. The press all over the land was filled with descriptions of the mur derer, the telegraph was used over every part of the country, but all without avail. Reilly had vanished. At one time it was rumored that traces of ihe murderer had been dis covered iu Chicago. Detectives Irving and I'hil Keilly were dispatched there by the then Suoerintendent Kennedy. They arrested a auspicious character whose description an- 1.1 I W . -11 1 1 1 1 1 " swerea mat oi xveiuy, ana uruugni mm on to this city, but he proved to be the wroncr man, and was discharged. That was the last heard of Reilly until about a week ago. Then Captain Ward was informed that he had been seen in the city, and it was supposed that he was stopping at bis mother s bouse. Ho. 4J7 WhiI Fortv-fifth street. Captain Ward and Officer John Cottrell kept a close watch on the bouse, but did not see any one going in or out. Suspecting that Reilly spent only his days at home, and that he went out at night, they stationed themselves on Forty-fifth street, near Broadway, in full view of the house. lAst evening, a few minutes alter six o clock. a man came from the direction of the house toward the officers, and Cottrell exclaimed: "That'a Reilly!" Ward did not know him. he waa so changed, but Cottrell wai confident. Going up to him, Cottrell uud : "Johnnie, it'a no use: 1 know who you are." The man replied: "You are mistaken; I'm aa w laiv aj mit vwaav naviu a a via au f vixaa Reilly, and you are our prisoner, for the mur der oi Officer John O'Brien." Reilly shook like a leaf, atammertd a little, and without a struggle surrendered himself. He was taken to the atanonhoose and locked up. He ad mitted the murder on tbe way. and com plained of having been hooted by the police. When visited by a Times reporter, last night Reilly did not hesitate to talk about the mur der. He said he was not sorry for his arrest, except for one thing. Said he: "I have a good old mother; this will kill her. As for myself. I am oh! so tired of this thing. 1 don't care what becomes of me, I am tired, tired, tired. I wish it was all over." The prisoner refused absolutely to give any de tailed account of his wanderings "I have been wandering everywhere since that night." He said he had spent some time in Indiana, and had been a long time in Cali fornia, in which latter State he had served two terms of imprisonment. Reilly is so greatly changed that few of his old acquaint ance would know him. Captain Ward, who f formerly knew him well, said that he would have allowed him to pass Uottrell said he could not have sworn at the time of the arrest that it was Keilly, but there was some thing about him that made him instinctively feel that it was. The man is shrunken up, and his face is much wrinkled. The top of his head is entirely bald, although he is only forty years of age, and he is much bent. He retains his mustache, and keeps it black by the use of dyes. In fact, Reilly looks just aa he describes himself, "tired out." He will be soon arraigned for his crime, and, judging from his own expression, he expects to "swing for it." Koarlahlms; Blood.
