The royal familiei -enjoyed the day by decorating trees for their little ones and distributing presents among the poor. The Pope's gifts to the needy amounted to 10,000. IBT C1BLX TO TEX DISrATCH. Lokdok, December 28. Copyright London is just resuming its normal condi tion after its two days' holiday. As Britons consider the anniversary of the birth of Christ purely a spiritual occasion, that closes saloons and. opens churches, thus rnsiaqg it necessary for a temporal holiday to follow, with the churches closed and sa loons open, of course all of the Iiondoners who could get out of town for the two days did so, and an estimate of the number of people who purchased tickets at the various metropolitan railroad stations makes the fig ure 300,000. Tkiw were still & few millions left how- crer, and to these there was plenty of amusement afforded. Barnum led every thing, of course, more than 30,000 people visiting the Olympia on Thursday, where a new programme was given and the Circus Maximal added to Kiralfy'a "Nero." Ten or 20,000 people were also turned away from Barnnm's Crystal Palace, which enter tained the next highest number ef amuse ment seekers to the American show, 23,253 men, women and children being accommo dated there, and 13,000 Tisiting MmcTus caud's wax works. XOTS OF OTHEE TITS. There were scores of other amusements as wellatCovent Garden, Drury Lane and Her Majesty's Theaters. Christmas panto mimes were performed to the full seating and standing capacity of each house, and thousands were turned away from Tarious theaters. The pantomimes were unusually brilliant this year, "Jack and the Bean stalk," at Drury Lane, in particular being one of the most magnificent spectacles ever produced on the stage, though it is far out done br Kiralfy's creat perform ance at the Ofympia. "Cinderella" was given both at Covent Garden and Her Majesty's, at the former theater a live lion riding about the ring on a Horse and jumping from its back through a hoop, in the best circus manner. Drury Lane, how ever, discounted this performance by intro ducing a new strong man, Carl Abs, who lifted a full-sized horse four inches off the stage. It is probable the lion trick will have to be abandoned at Covent Garden, as the new performer is just arriving at maturity, and is likely to develop the inherent ferocity of his nature at any moment JL TBEE FOE EACH PBINCE. The German Emperor has regained his iiormal health.

Reform, put on an unkingly but comfortable jacket helped deewaie Cfiristaaas trees, and had fnu with the children. Each of the five little princes had a tree all to hitnseir, and the value of the presents thereon was1 regulated according to the age ef the proud possessor. The Pnneess Stephanie, widow of Eu dolph oi Austria, left the room in which she had been confined for a week with in fluenza, to superintend similar functions. The Christmas tree ot ber 6-year-old daughter was three times the owner's height gor geously adorned,and splendidly illuminated; but th'e present which caused the little Princess the greatest delight and astonished and charmed the crown-up royalties as well, was a lovely doll furnished with a phono graph, whieh on Christmas Day recited a poem by the Archduchess Valerie, and made a number of little speeches. PKESENXS FOB THK POOB. The other members of the Austrian royal family, the Emperor included, were busy early "in the week sending out presents to the charitable institutions and poor citizens of Vienna. The Archduke Charles Louis and his wife, with their royal hands, liehted a huge Christmas tree in the best parlor of their great palace, distributed the presents, and said kind words to several hundred poor children gathered Irom all parts of the city. The same evening Mme. Carnot also entertainea, at the Elysee, a big crowd of children. ' The Prince of "Wales distributed dm! to bis cottagers and laborers at Sandringham, and the Queen forwarded presents to the school children round about Osborne, but did not like most of her fellow-monarchs, enhance the gracionsness oi the gifts by personally presenting them. CHARITY OF THE POPE. v The Pope celebratedthe festive season in charasteriitio fashion by civing from his private purse nearly 50,000 irancs to the poor of Borne. The royal family of Italy have not had a particularly merry week. King Humbert Is suffering from the worries of State busi ness, his bair is white, and he has some throat trouble of which the surgeons are not allowed to talk. Queen Margaret has been a martyr to the toothache, and the heir to the Italian throne, the Prince of Naples, never a healthy lsd, has been kept to his studies so closely that he has had to be taken oat of the hands of tutors to save his brain and perhaps his life.
