This is the premium now being offered by the New xort rri Dune, and Is certainly the most liberal offer ever made by any country newspaper. Christmas. A night and a day and then the glad Christmas eve will be here.

A wondrous child whom all the nations sIioulJ revere ; whose teachings were to be foundation stones for human lsw; his words con soler of man's heaviest grief; bis sub jects those adown the centuries who through love of him should do his work and keep his law.- Our Christmas Advertisements. A careful perusal of the advertisements in this issue of the Enterprise will con vince any one that the merchants and tradesmen or Wellington are not behind other and larger places in offering attrac tions to the purchasers of Christmas goods. Baldwin, Laundon A Co-, in their column advertisement inform the readers that "they have a large variety of everything that will make them happy," and invite everybody to come and buy Christmas . presents. . Smith A Jordan, -of the Bee ' Hive, notwithstanding that they "have put in a steam engine to help them grind coffees and spices and do up parcels, ssy they are so busy they cant tell what they have ; but it will do your eyes good if you go and see the -bright array of beautiful things which they offer in exchange for your cash. -II. O. Starr A Co. enumerate a long list of articles, every one of them beautiful and useful. Yischer has made special arrangements with 8anta Claus to have the Estey Organ tumbled right into your Christmas stocking, thus saving the extra expense of dray age and the liability to injury by careless draymen. 8. P. Hastings is prepared to supply yon with a light running Domestic " on demand. J. "W. Wilbur will sell you "the most bean- tiful stove in the market," and C.E. SuUiff will sudoIv vou with all the coal vou can . burn in it. A. O. & O. L. Couch, and Hoyt Woolley, will sell yon a high chair for the little c rower just beginning to sit alone, nr a beautiful and comfort able easy chair for your old mother, which . will make her furrowed cheeks glow with pleasure and look more beautiful than ever as she rests her weary body in its soft cushions. If you are a young man and want to get yourself np u fit to km," A M Fitch or L- Bowman will get yon np a tunning suit of clothes on short notice, or asll you an overcoat cheap. If, on the ' other hand, you are a man with grown np sons and daughters, and wish to settle either of them, Morrow A Co. HI sell you a farm in any par of the county, or a house la Wellington - for from $500 to $3,000. Our friend W. Rin lager has neglected to furnish copy for his half- col amn advertisement, but we expect he will have an important announcement next week. In the meantime we assure our readers that his stock of dry goods and clothing is complete in every particular. These are some of our larger advertisers. Then there are a host of others who do not occupy so much space in our columns, but are equally careful of the interests and comfort of their customers. Among these is Harvey, whose store is always full of firstclass groceries and clothing, and whose stock is specially suited to the Holi day trade; Bowlby & Hall, whose well- known steam grocery is well worthy of liberal patronage; H. B. Hamlin, where you can get an excellent quality of flour for your holiday baking; Uncle Robinson, who is daily receiving fresh oysters in can and bulk, and can furnish anything good to eat on short notice; Otterbacher, just the place to go and buy a new harness for a Christmas present for your poor old horse, or a good strong trunk as a Christ mas box for yourself to keep your good clothes in; Cook A Starr, on Courtland Avenue,, the place to have your winter cloaks and dresses made ; Mrs. A. II. Pal mer's, the place to go for dressmaking and millinery ; A Scott's, the place to buy dress silks and winter hats, and Mine. Dcmorcst s patterns to make them up by ; and, last of all, Houghton's Book and Drug btore, where you can find any book you can think of, and a great many of which you never heard all instructive, interesting and pro fitable. We had no idea, when we wrote the line "Our Christmas Advertisements," thst the Enterprise contained so large a number, or that a perusal of them would prove so interesting; but we find we have not enu merated all, and are- forced to stop for want of room. Our " Business and Plea sure " column also contains many and in teresling holiday announcements, and we believe that a perusal of the advertisements of a newspaper will afford both amusement and instruction. - We with to be distinctly nnderstood that we do act nolo t-arseivc rvspisioi or vyuuw liinil bj our corre.poudei.ta.

To the Editor of the KsTxxrasK. I have no doubt aU the readers of the (swraiaa will be Interested In reading a few notes In relation to the United States Mint at Philadelphia, where n large porttoa of onr money la made. While there a tew day since I visited that to me Intensely Interest ing place, and tram my very gentlemanly one armed aoMler usher, I learned a few facts that are at your service. The m at una eetabllahed in I'M. Gen. Waahtagton appelated the Srat director, vis. David Rlttenhousa. t he Srat money made waa copper cents In TOO. In ITS! Silver dollars were made. Goldlaglea were made la liSa. They at Srat bad great trouble In obtaining copper, the Srst being Imported from Fig"r"J The building is marble and la entirely Irs moot. We eater the rotunda aftaero wo are met by courteous gentlemen who seem snxloos to make our visit Interesting. We were escorted to the weighing room where Jul the metal are received and weighed. They estimate that thera haa bera received and weighed in this room over saoo.000,000. Of tbl sum nlna tenths hss been received since the discovery of gold In California. Moat of the gold now cornea from Montana. Previous to the discovery of so much In the western mountains moat of the stiver came from Mexico and South America. The copper mostly coma from Lake Superior, but the nneat to attained from Mlnnaanta . The KlcXla from l.aanater Co., Pa. The PU of gold brick at the end of the room was good tor sore eyes.

These ma chines ara ponderous, but remarkably perfect aa well as powerful. One of the gentlemanly operatives avoided me on of the burs designed for catting tea dollar piece, which was seemingly as heavy as n bar of Iron one tech square. These strips are not far from three feet long and extremely smooth and height, Tb.aa so Into S machine that cuts it into ptenehett or btaak. TWy then 00 In to another macs me that turns up the edjras. Prom thl they ga into the stamping machine, which stamps both sides of the coin at one time. Prom thla they go Into the machine wber the edges are ooragsted or mined. These pieces are msds st the rate of about 80 per minute, and supposing all the machines, ten In number, should make twenty dollar gold pieces for one minute we should have the large sum of $le,000, or If they should an work on cents fer the same time we should only get Sa.00. The scales are of the kind nra as even balance, tho working parts being In closed In glsss cases to prevent the air affecting them. The weights sre adjusted to the fraction of n penny weight, and are seen from a else that would weigh 9U0 ounces down to the one hundreth part of an ounce. The weighing la done so accurately that a thousand ten dollar or two tboaand Sve dollar pieces can be weighed and the number told aa perfectly aa though they were counted. There are several mints In tho United States, but the one at Philadelphia corns the greatest amount. Kew Orleans comes next, then San Fran co. It we notice our coins we shall see that some of them have the letter ' "O" under the Eagie, others the letter "S" and others have no letter. The "O sns "Orleans. the S" 8an Francisco" and those having no letter are coined at Philadelphia. Copper cents, nlckleaand three cent pieces are only made In Philadelphia and Hew Orleana. The ma chines are all run by power furnished by line engine In the basement. We pass up stairs Into what is called the cabinet. Here can be eeen n sample of all the coin of the world, some of them severs! hundred yean older than the Christian era.

B-Laxo. Letter From Mrs. Byder. To the Editor of the ExTxnrni an. Hi OuLXixs. Dec. J. 1S90. It rains constantly, and the city is literally a ecu of mud. We were nearly two weeks getting here, rather s monotonous journey, ns there Is not much of special Interests along the rWer bank after several time paaelng. only aa we go back, to the dark daya. look at what to left of Fort Pillow, at the hills about Vicke burgand recall the scenes transacted there. The rain Is washing away many of the old land marks that the war left, and la forming land In new place, as if to shift the scene entirely. Isle No. HI Is nearly washed. away, only n little mound of sand left to mark tbe snot, but nothing but tbe end of life will erase the memories of those dark daya, nor the blttercese still rankling in the heart of those thst hsve to submit to tbe lost cause, as 1 Judge from the expressed tor any. of some of the Southerners aboard of the boat. They were ao much disappointed In the way tbe election had gone, eald they had fully expected to get paid for their luat property, and believed the Government would yet be obliged to (ay them. I icf erred them to our losses which were beyond the power of Government or money to redress, the answer wa that we might have let them alone and there would have been no war. We win leave that with the bj gooes and look at the present. I Snd a better state of affaire ns to schools than I had expected, thera are n few pubi c schools still in the city for the colored people, and aome of tbe former teachers have small schools on their own responsibility, n few they can Snd those that are able to pay something for schooling, which I think Is a very good Idea. I shall hold Bible reading twice a week.

The sources of petroleum are found In almost every part of the globe, and tbe use of the article would seem well nigh coeval with civilization. There is a spring in one of the Ionia:i islands wnich ha yieliie 1 petroleum more tnan two thousand years. The city of Uenoa was formerly llgiifu by oil from the wells of Armenia, on the banks of the Zaro. in l'erets, alio, near the Caspian Sea at Baku, numerous springs of petroleum have been known from the earliest time; and those or ICanzoon, on the Irawaudy, are said to have yielded, before the general introduction of pe troleum, some 400,000 hogsheads of oil a rear.

Near Armsteg, on the line of the St. Gothard railway, excavations for the road have laid bare a so-called glacier garden, containing a series of "giants' kettles," or large holes made In the rock by hydraulic or glacier action.

A pleasant announcement Trtnde by the Editors of St Nicholas is that they have secured for their next number a story of Indian life by Inshtatheamba (Bright-eyes,) the daughter' of an Omaha chief, who has been travelling through the States during the lat two years under tho protection of two of her kinsmen, trying to rouse the con science of the whites to the rights of her rtce. Miss lot Flesche (for that is her English name) makes now, we believe, her first esssy as an author, but she cannot but succeod if she gives as dram atic pictures of the dally domestic life of her people as she has hitherto done in her addresses. She has broad culture snd keen perceptive faculty, and she has given herself up to the on use of her people with a simplicity and passionate singleness of heart that most rouse sympathy in every man and woman whoso own instincts are true and pure. X. Y. Tribune. What this nation needs more than all eke to know and feel, is that mstter is not the whole or the chief part of sub- stanoe; that we live already in a super natural worio, ana are to live tn the spirit when the flesh is done with ; that the head of this supernatural world is God in Christ; and that according to his own eternal will, expressed in the laws which govern us now and hereafter, as well as In his word, God will judge the quick and the dead. A 'barbarlo splendor," a sensuous and faithless civilization, a decorate I and hollow worldlincss, a society which, with its mouth full of meat and wine, and jewels on its fingers, says only. "Eat. drink, dress, dance, for to-morrow shall be as this day; or If we die, we die" this is the herosy, the horror, the damnation that Ameilean Christians have to confront, to fight, and, please Ou, to overcome.
