A Merry Christmas for Poor Chil-
To the Children. ~Surely the children of the rich
and the hoppy will be glad to wake at least a few' days in
the year pleasant to the children of the poor. And on
these merry holidays, when around many a cheerful fire,
aldo the children gather from far and near, they will
think of those who have no fireside and no home. Our
Newsboys were disappointed of their Thanksgiving Din
ner, so we propose—if parents and children will give us
the means—to make up for it on Christmas Day, by caus
ing that to one of the happiest in the year for them,
with a good dinner, plenty of shoes and clothes, apd any
ether presents we can give. The poor girls at the Girls’
Lodging House are to have a pleasant time, and the little
Germans at the German School, and the poor Irish and
colored children at the Cottage Place School, and at all
other schools, if we receive money ox; shoes or clothes or
• food in time. Remember that we have some 1200 poor
children. But some of you would like best to give a
• Jfifoww to a street child. We mean to send off a Holiday
party of orphan and destitute children to the West, per
haps numbering fifty. The total cost of each child is
31140. Who will make a Christmas present of a home?
The gifts can be sent to the Children’s Aid Society, No. 11
Clinton Hall, Astor Place, New York, or the money to J.
E. Williams, Esq., Treasurer, Metropolitan Bank.
C. L. Brack. Secretary
Cor.. Seaton, tho veteran editor of
the National IntabutMe,-, I. still hale and hearty. A cor
respondent of the New York /toZty'Owimercethus speaks
Of him : “On the 14th of next month, Col. S. will be se
venty-eight years of age. I met him on the Avenue the
other morning, and he was looking and feeling as hale
and hearty as a young man of twenty. Knowing that he
was in the habit of spending the greater portion of his
time in his office, I expressed surprise that he should be
looking so well, when the secret came out that he was
still in the habit of having a day’s sport •on the moors?
Even during this cold weather, he occasionally leaves his
"bed before dawn, rouses his splendid dog, and, accom
panied by a single servant, drives oft some fifteen or
twenty miles to parts unknown, and, after bagging a dozen
or two of partridges, returns home to a quiet dinner, hav
ing taken exercise enough to use up a score or two of the
effeminate snobs who strut about the streets with nothing
great or striking about them but their breeches??
iiin Chinese papers e’ive some par
ticulars of the death of the American adventurer. Ward,
formerly a resident of Salem, but lately the leader of a
well-disciplined force of Chinese on the imperial side in
China. It appears that Ward, with the help of two Eng
lish gunboats, had repulsed- an attack of the rebels, kill
ing seven hundred of them, but that while he was view
ing the fugitives through his glass, a bullet struck him in
the stomach, inflicting a wound of which he died the fol
lowing day. He made his will, and appointed our Minis
ter to China, Hon. Anson Burlingame, as one of his execu
tors. Speaking of tho death of Ward, the London Tints
says he was a brave, reckless, unscrupulous fellow, who
amassed an enormous fortune, like a filibuster as he was,
and died like a fearless soldier of fortune. His followers,
however, as soon as he was de ad, deserted to the rebels,
for their business was plunder.
A soldier named J. G. Hilt, of the
First Michigan, deranged by love, recently threw himself
out of the hospital window in Washington, and was se
verely injured. A short time since it was necessary to
amputate his arm, and he informed a young lady to whom
lie was engaged to be married of It, and released her from
her engagement Inasmuch as he was now maimed for life.
She, however, replied in feeling terms that ho was now
dearer to her than ever, as be had suffered so nobly for
his country. Her fidelity in his misfortune prod****** a
profound impression on his mfcd, and the. thought that he
was not worthy of her love completely unnerved him,
although he had hitherto borne up with good cheer, and
he lately gave evidence of partial derangement. Fortu
nately he is likely to recover.
A great number of Merovingian gold
coins have lately been discovered in a field about aleague
from Fcmtenay-le-Comte, in La Vendee, belonging to
.Baron de Maynard, and near his residence, the Chateau
de Be a tightere. It is reckoned that ten or twelve thou
sand of tli'ese coins have been found, but all, except about
one thousand five hundred, have been sold and melted
down. Since 1811 the Imperial Library has received
sixty five of Ithese coins. One of the last found bore the
inscription Suessonis fit on one side, and on the other B*l
tomo, with a globe surmounted by a cross. Most of them
were coined at Nantes, Orleans, or Paris, but all are Mero
vingian, and of the same value. Antiquarians have not
yet been able to give any plausible explanation as to how
or when so rich a treasure came to be buried in the field.
M. Claude Bernard has published in
France a memoir on the effects of a short or quick death
on the eatableness of fish. The observations apply to ani
mals in general as well as to fish, as M. Bernard finds in
al! the muscular tissues a substance analogous to vegetable
starch. This substance, which is accompanied by certain
azotized matters, disappears when the process of death is
Blow either by disease or by .slaughtering. Prolong tlje
agony of the animal, and you destroy this matter, the pro
duct of good nutrition, and spoil the meat. The same
effect is produced by overdriving ; the flesh of an over
driven ox parte more readily with its juices when soaked
in water than that of an unfatigued animal. As regards
fish, M. Bernard states that cod which die in water are
worse than those that die in air.
The exact spot on which Burger, the
■ilerman ballad-poet, lies buried, has for some time been a
matter of speculation. Chance has brought it to light. The
sexton of the cemetery went before the Weender Thor, at
{Jotting-. n family to look for the remains of one of itamom
berr. In deciphering the inscriptions' of old tombstones,
he found a monument close by the little mound which has
been ri garded as Burger’s grave, entirely grown over with
Shrubs, and covered with a thick crust of moss. When
this was cleared away, the following inscription became
visible : “ The Town of Gottingen to the poet August Biir
ger with the dates of the birth and death of “ the poor
inhabitant below.” The monument consists of a Doric
column, bearing an urn.
The Historical Society of New Eng
land, on bearing of the general sending of old books and
pamphlets to the paper manufacturers,by persons wishing
to realise tlie good prices now paid for such matter, held
a meeting in Boston on Wednesday, and voted that every
member be requested to visit paper mills where practica
ble, and that agents’should be appointed for the same pur
pose, In order that old papers, pamphlets and other docu
ments which might prove of historical interest might ba
saved. Some very important documents came to light at
the paper mills.
The Boston Post says that “ Hum
mlng Bird” robes are tho newest and sweetest thing out.
They are of salmon silk ornamented by sprays of foliage
»ipou which arc represented birds and butterflies, it takes
a C spot to secure one. The Post also describes a new
head-dress as consisting of slender wire, bent into a
wreath, upon the front of which is perched a brilliant
little humming-bird, surrounded bj- a small court of deli
cate lace, leaves, small points, and cherry velvet bows
oddly arranged. At the back there are velvet bows and
arbes of black lacc, which descend upon the neck.
A NEW lecture, entitled “ Sketches
of the Noted Men of New York City,” will be delivered at
Clinton Hall, Astor Place, to-morrow (Monday) evening,
by Mr. Francis J Tucker. The lecturer intends sketching
Fernando Wood, Geo. B. Cheever, F. I. A. Boole, Arch,
bishop Hughes, Horace Greeley, and others. We fancy
that tho lecturer will have hard work before him in delln*
eating characters so dissimilar and incongruous; but as he
bears a good reputation for ability, we think his hearers
will experience a rich and racy intellectual treat.
Prince N. ituo puuiisficd

in which he declares that the race of Muscovite amateurs,
who flourished till within a late period, and who figure so
characteristically in the history of modern music, is rap-

•works which are being dally carried on by the city for

Though, Brothers I we have built- our Shrine,
Ana rear’d the Altar’s Cubic Stone,
Graved on its front the Mystic Sign,
Known to our ancient Craft alone
Not yet our Crowning Work begun,
The Mason’s labor is not done!
Though Charity hath found a pile
Where breathes the Orphan Children’s prayer,
"Whose grateful hearts, whose happy smile,
Reward our deeds and bless our care :
Not yet our Crowning work begun,
The Mason's labor is nut done.
When we have reared a home for those
Who of their plenty freely gave,
Whom Poverty, at life’s late close.
Hath left no shelter—but the grave— -
Then may we boast a race well rdn,
Then will our Crowning Work be done.
A Monitorial Picture. —We have a
suggestive photograph sent us by our good old
friend, Bro. Clapp, of Trenton, New Jersey. It
is that of a cook m costume, with kitchen sur
rouncungs. He is breaking eggs and finds a
bad’’ one, which emits very offensive effluvia.
The disgusted master of the culinary art is
holding up both hands, with half of the “ bad
egg” in each, wliile his head is turned partly
aside and his tace drawn into a shape indicative
of the offensive smell. It is a rare and very ex
pressive picture. Bro. Clapp, with his usual
adroitness in pressing things into the service of
Masonry, has hung the picture in the ante-room
ft n jl.l?S9ri4U2 l lJ’. or nf entrance: and
This picture, my Brothers, a moral doth teach.
That with profit might claim-the. attention of each ;
The cook (as ’twould seem, by the twist of his nose).
