Of the affair we can only say that each one tried to play his part ; but, owing to the Aeacjf character i tne pieces pre sented, the failure of persons to know their part, and the fact of this being the . first appearance of many ot the actors, the tragical part of the performance was not what." under different circumstances, "it misrlit have been." The music by Miss Brunrs and Messrs. Dohse and Dr. Biddle, was excellent, and the songs by the mem bers of the Club were flnely rendered. Library Association.

On a Time A number of gentlemen oj this city went down to Albany, last Satur day, on a ran. In returning, a buggy was broken, another upset, and the mischief played generally.

At an early hour, sveet-tonea bells ran 2 out their joyful notes, summon ing our people to their respective places of worsnip.- .axine i - 4 CATHOLIC CHURCH Three masses were celebrated, by FathejJJ Gibenv at six,; seven ana nan-past ten o'clock in the forenoon. The Church was" not decorated with evergreens,' but a nunv ber of fresh and beautiful bouquets adorn ed the altar, a new carpet covered the-: sanctuary, new news had been placed in the auditorium, and the whole interior of the building clothed in a spotless garb of snow-white paint. At the CHAPEI. OF THE GOOD SAMARITAN Services were held at half-past ten o'clock, by Kev. J. H. Babcoek. The Chapel had been very tastefully decorated. From the ceiliiiffsdrooned elaborate festoons of ever greens, aud the columns were entwined with cedar and lir sprays. Over the altar were the characters "Alpha and Omega," between which were wrought, in letters of purple and gold, tne worus rne Aiignty God." Under this appeared an evergreen cross, sprinkled, witu everlastings, witn the initials "I.'H. S." inscribed below it. : A haudsome altar cloth, appropriately embellished, covered the altar. Upon the left wall, the words "The WOnderiul," " The Everlasting Father," aud upon the right, "The Counselor, "The Prince of .Teace," were neatly inscrmea in capitals of everereeu. Upon the ea3t end of the Chapel appeared the "Star," and, in let ters of purnle, tne words . unto, us a Child is Born f " Unto us a Son is Given, " formed into semi-circles, upon either side of the entrance, beneath which were hung neavy wreaths or evergreen. " 'ne chan deliers were trimmed with the delicate myrtle vine.

Services were held at ten o'clock, at the PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, By Rev. D. K. Nesbit. The church had not been decorated, but in tne alter noon a CHRISTMAS TREE : ' Was erected. ' At G:30 p. m., the church was crowded to Its utmost capacity, by both young and old, to witness the distri bution of the gifts. The tree was smaller than usual, neither lighted nor ornament ed, but bore a goodly array of beautiful and valuable presents. The exercises were opened with prayer by Kev.-J. Emery, alter which the heart of nearly everyone present was made giaa oy a gut or some kind. A number or .: " PRIVATE CHRITSMAS TREES Were erected in the city on Christmas Eve. The residences of Harry Johnson, W. H. McFarland, Dr. Bayley and B. W. Wilson were thus adorned, and at each a very pleasant evening was spent. .- In tne evening, a penorniauce was given oy me . CORVALI.IS MINSTRELS, A company of amateurs, and largely at tended. Of this exhibition we can truly say that a more entertaining, mirth-provoking, and amusing performance has never been given by any troupe before in this city. The youngkgentleuoeu' engaged in the matter labored to please, and the frequent rounds of applause with which they were greeted by a crowded house is proof of how well they succeeded. We are glad to learn that a similar perform ance, with an entire change of programme, Is promised us on the 22d of February. These - entertainments are devoid of all profanity and vulgarity, and furnish a source of harmless amusement. After the minstrel performance, the hall was cleared for a " " ' To those ySfWhich was attended by about forty couple, who mingled In the mazy dance until "broody iaylight in the morulng." An EXCELLENT SUPPER Was served at the City Hotel, by that popular and obliging landlord, A. K. Mc Connell, - Esq. -The ball was one of -the most pleasant affairs ever had In this city, and the festivities of the evening were marked throughout by general good feel ing and unalloyed pleasure. Thus passed Christmas, 1872 a season of enjoyment, both religious and secular, not soon to be forgotten by our citizens. ' -. - The Amateur Performance has been postponed until Friday evening.- A most agreeable entertainment is promised by the Company on that occasion. "Ten Nights in a Barroom'' is on the bills, and will, no doubt, be well performed ' After the per formance, an opportunity will be given for Terpsichorean enjoyment. ,., , The Flood.
