CUUISTMAS WEEK FA1K. Bometblna; Interoatlna; to Beanz and Belloa and Good People Generally. Written for the Poblio Lbdobb.1 " How eball we spend Christma! week, Tom 7" I asked my baohelor friend, bb we Bat beside our cozy fire after dinner on Thanksgiving Day. ' "Well, I really den't know," he re plied. " Have you heard of anything novel or entertaining in which we may participate freely ?" " Yes, Tom, I have. " Anything in which the fair aez can take part ? Lbryon know without them everything to us seems dull and insipid." "Yes. the very thine for yonng loins, and especially the ladies." "Well, what ia it, my dear fellow? Come, don't mince the matter; be like your jolly good self; nnfold the particu lars. "I will, with the greatest pleasure, Tom, if you'll give me time to collect my thoughts." "Nevermind your thoughts I mean your fancies; be as brief, my boy, aa arithmetic; enumerate the facts." " In the (iradgrind order, lorn 7 "Well, no; I'm not partial, you know, to the Oradgrind school of beings, or to your Quilps or your Squeers." "Something, tnen, ot ine denerson Brick school of facta?" " No, sir; nothing of the sort, I aasnre yon. ."Something interesting, pernapi, touching on the pathetic, to awaken your good feelings, and enlist your sympathies for little children." "Babes in the wood, eh?" "No; orphan children at St. Peter' a Asylnm." . "What about them?" "Why, they are both nnmeroua and needy; there are bo many of them to be clothed, fed and educated, that nnless young fellows like you and I, Tom, and the young ladies who are likely to join us, do something handsomely for tbem, they'll surely Buffer thia winter." " True, indeed. It doee credit to your nature to think of the poor children. It ia terrible to be fatherless and friendless while young; to be scarcely thought of even for a moment by the busy, plotting and plodding world. What a happy thing it is to be a Christian, like you, ever thinking of doing good for aome hody." "Ah, Tom, there may be more Chris tianity ia your heart, after all, than in mine. It's not every one who ' talks Chriatian-like that'a a Chriatian." " You mean to aay there's more reli gion' in the world than Christianity, eh?" " Well, no, not exactly, although what you say may be true. I mean your ?:enerosity,when awakened, may be much arger than mine; and if en, you're a better Christian : for what ia Christianity bat generosity and love, aa exemplified ia the life aad teaching! of the Rf (eemer? You recollect the tenth verse ef the eighteenth chapter of the Gospel according to St. Matthew: 'Take heed that ye despise not one of tbeie little onei : for I aay nnto you. that in heaven their angela do alwaja behold the face of my Father, which ia in heaven f Ii'a a warning that we abould at leaat once a year remember; and what fitter time to do ao than at Christmas, when all hearts should rejoice T' "None, my dear fellow, none. But how are we to help the poor childreaj We cn't do much our-elves, you know "Certainly aot; but we can ask and encourage others to aasiit a, and by united eff rt eccomplih a great deal in the way of benevolence." "That'a the novel pleasure yoa apoke of jat now, ie H? " ' Not quiie. Tom, although the lighert pleasure attainable cn earth "'era the hearts of benevolent people. Yri eat see it beamir.g ia their fces ' the serrst te'e of a Christian spirit are gn tleeess, kindness and ebaritabieneea, which ealivea the ft a: a re of humanity r O 50 o m 03 a the aun enlivens the face of nature. But the entertainment I spoke of will be in the shape ol a Fair, where your can spend the most pleasant time imagina ble, in the presence of the prettiest kind of Indies, who will take the utmost delight in offering you aa many chances as you please," "In what?" " Well, in a ailver eet, for instance, or a fine painting, a watch, a smoking cap, or any pretty article you choose." " Yoa don't mean a fair for the or phans?" "Yes, I do, Tom; a fair nnder the management of the Sisters of Charity and other noble-hearted ladies for the benefit of the orphans t.bout one hun dred little boys and girlii, Tom, whose thanka will be wafted to heaven on angels' wings." " How did you learn all this ? " "The facts, Tom, I learnt from Sister Dolores, of the Asylum, who has been at our store selecting some artioles for a fishing-pond." "For a what?" " A fishing-pond for love-letters, nick nacks, comfits, kisses, and aoforth only twenty-five ceuts a draw. Aa the clown at the circus says, there will be 'dollops of fun' around that pond, Tom." " I'll go, my dear fellow, aure; ana so will you." "Certainly, Tom; and we must tell our friends and acquaintances to go also. We must have a jolly Christmas time, Tom. at the ornhana' fair." " With all my heart. Where's it to be held?" " I cannot aay positively ; but I believe at the new Assembly Hall on Monroe street, near Main. " Well, no matter where, I'll go. From thia time I'll commence saving every dollar I can for the occasion. Farewell beer and tobacco till after Christmas; all my spare dimes shall remain in my vest Dockets for the orphans tair. "That'a right. Tom: let na encourage every one to do likewise, like good, sober and sensible Christians. Have you ever been at the Asylum, Tom, to see the children 1 "No." "Well, then, my dear boy, it would do your heart good to see how neat and clean they're kept; and to see them in little groupa praying at Divine Service on Sunday is a sight angela might envy. How much better it is to bave those little ones brought up nnder the guidance of pious ladies than bave them lett wain on a wide world, to wallow, perhaps, in wickedness and wretchedness through life?" "Ah, much better, much better, in deed. We must assist the good Sisters, and the orphans, too." . Jqmah. Letter from Hew York. Special Correspondence Public Lbdobi. Nbw Tobk. November 23. 1868. The third annual session of theNational Christian Convention was held on Thurs day, and was remarkable for the perfect good feeling which prevailed tnrougnout the proceedings, and for the valuable suggestions thrown out by the various speakers. Henry Ward Beecher deliv ered one of his extemporaneous ad dresses, full of hints, which, if acted npen by the many influential people who heard him, cannot fail to produce ere long the very best fruit in the church, the schoolroom, and the family. Dr. McCosh, the new President of Princeton College, one of the finest-looking and moat truly lovable, aa well aa one of the most intelligent men in the world, fol lowed Mr. Beecher, and in a short ad dress seconded the proposals of his American co-worker,with a simple earn estness that won him hosts of friends, He took his audience by surprise when he announced that during the autumn of 1869 an Ecumenical Council of all Chris tiana will be held in this city, with the object of producing harmony and good feeling among all denominations. This council ia not to be confined to the clergy, although aome of the greatest clerical names in Christendom are in cluded in the list of guests. Among ethers, Lord Shaftesbury has promised to come, and numerous authors, journal ists, and scientists from various parts of the civilized world, have been invited and are confidently txpecied to be present and take part in the discussions which will be held on the great topics now agitating the religious world. Apro pos to thia aubject, let me e-atify you with the information that the Unitarians and Episcopalians of New York are making strong efforts to furnish the in habitants of Gotham with free preaching. The move ia made on novel grounds, the appeal to the public ia based on the pre position that aa there are plenty of fine churehea for the very rich, and plenty of preacbera for the very poor even the denicena .of Water street, where the "Wickedeat Man" lives, have an ave rage of two chaplains apiece and aa the middle clesaei cannot afford to gi to fashionable churehea, and are toe proud to go to John Atlen'a den or to Kit Barns' rat-trap, it bouoovei the right minded to provide church facilities for audiences somewhat less refined than the elite, and more select than those who bave' hitnerto been the exclusive objects of charity. It is therefore proposed to build a number of large publio balls, wherein good preachers may ministor gratuitously to those who deiire to be bettered by religions .instructions. The papers are bo longer filled with the glittering generalities and pattering p'atitadea, which are eesential element! daring a political campaign, bat contain, instead, columns of matter interesting to all flames of readers. Much of it is trashy, to be eure, but then much is very gvd, and well repevs cerefal prrl.

The project of tunneling the East river has not been abandoned, aa baa been reported. A committee, conaisting of Wm. A. Smith, of T.rooklyn, and Joel A. Pithian, of New Yerk, members of the Iron Tubular Tunnel Company, haa been appointed to present the claims of the corporatora to the public, and it ia to be hoped that before many more winters pass we ahall have reached the glorioua conaummation of having an easy and safe mode of getting to the City of Churches without, being obliged to de- ?end uponihe Union Ferry Company, 'he bridge project is atill in abeyance, owing to the aecret opposition of this .am comnanv. which controla the bridge stock ; and nnless the people of the two cities loaiat npon tae carrying out, oi me proviaiona of the charter, I much doubt whether we ahall ever have a bridge. Now is the time for new plays, new lee tures, new journals, and new books. The last stage sensation ia After Dark, one of Dion Bourcicao.lt' s exaggerationa. It ia full nf horrors. It fairly briatlea with them. A woman leapa from a bridge into the Thames and haa a narrow escape from Heath hr drowning. A man is poisoned to within an inch of hie life, and is afterwards laid npon the track of a subterranean railway to be run over and crushed by the fast approaching train. A Hnxan other neoole are placed in equally embarrassing positions, but of course only tne wicnea nave moir tui continuity violently solved, and the good are all saved to live happy livea aod re ceive the raptnroua plaudits of the audi ence. A qaeer version of the aame play is on the boarda of the Bowery, where it is nightly rehearsed in presence of all the newsbows, bootblacks, and other gamius of thia great city. Wallack'a glories in the Lancashire Lass, who un fortunately suffers from an attack of the Grecian bend, a disease which, to the honor of the women of Lancashire be it said, has never appeared in that fine old English county except among the very old women. As a fashion it haa drooped lately, even in New York, and you rarely meet it in yourwalka. When you do you are morally certain that the individual who di-playa it is either ao escaped luna tic, or else a resident of some three-story hriplr hnnsfl in Greene or Meroer street Among the new leotures are those of Dr. Lemercier and Rev. Dr. Anderson, of Oxford University. Jeema Pipea ia hare. too. telling us about the delightful "Sixty minutes in Japan," which have made him so well known aa a truthful traveler; and thia week we shall have Mark Twain, who will teach the Metro politans how the Sandwich Islanders eat hnhinfl. . As to new books there is no end of them. .You' know that in literature aa in finance, much paper and much pov erty may coexist, and this tact is very patent just now. Mrs. Tucker baa writ ten a life of Brick Pomeroy, in which that patriot ia set down in the caelndar nf nnnanonizad saints. She says "His ears are large, and indicate the Demo cratic element of character, ana oiner wise describes him as a young man who should by right of talent and knowledge of publio affairs be at once elevated to the Presidency. Prof. Noah Porter haa just finished his book on "The Human Intellect," and an enterprising publisher a few days ago issued an illustrated novel by John Carsten Hauch, Ph. D. It is called "Robert Fulton," and gives a picture of American life and manners which is decidedly more refreshing than one of Dimpendickerby'a coal-oil sketches in the Tinicien Academy of Fine Arts. It gives also a panorama of the great steamboatman'a mind, and tells of his love for Laura, and his troubles with a half-scere of enemies, and is altogether a wonderful book. It should be read by every American who has a curiosity to know what ia thought of hia country by Dr. Hauch, a philoso pher who haa never lived an hour out of sight of hja own town. D. M. Hature'a Convulsions. The following extract from an Austra lian paper deserves full attention from the wise men who seek to know the secret of meteors and earthquakes. To those who have watched and studied the extra ordinary shakes on the west coast of South AmJrica, the facta contained in the following extract will prove invalua ble, for they are unsolicited, frank and spontaneous, as all such scientific notes .efaoold be. The facts already given in the Herald, in connection with the fa mous earthquakes f August 13th aod 16th, 1868, in Sooth America, seemed full enough and clear; but the cor ro'iorating evidence contained in thia simple recital deserves attention from those who give more than a passing no tice to earthquakes and their probable case, meteors: " The Brisbane Cburter of the 25th of August states that several of the vessels just arrived from the southward reported that there was a great deal of electrical atmospheric disturbance on Monday and Tuesday nights, but whether it wee the effect or simply coincident with the eclipse our informants could not aay. In one case it waa attended with fatal results, and a man was killed oa board the schooner Uraoia by the explosion of an electric meteor. The vessel waa off Crowdy Head on Monday, August 17, about midnight, whea a heavy south easterly squall came on, aad all bands i were railed to shorten sail. A seaman I named H G. Sales was steering, aad at I ball-past 12 a-m. on Tuesday, the 16th, a j meteor,' like a ball of fire, fell immedi-. aely over the v-esel'a atern, aci ex ploded with a report, resembling ' that of a heavy piece of ordnance. BLANKETS. BLANKETS. BLANKETS. BLANKETS. Sparka of Ere were acattered all about the deck and the ateeraman waa killed by the shock. Every one on board felt a violent shock like that of a galvanic battery, hut none of the crew were in jured except Sales, who waa at hia laat gasp picked up. Xlis Doay snowea no marks, but appeared to be blackened, and some six or seven hours after de composition set in and the poor fellow was buried over the side. He was a young man, abont twenty-three, and a smart seaman. The fire-ball apparently traveled with the wind, which waa from the aontbwest, and when it burst the flash waa ao in tensely brilliant that the steward, who waa lying in bis berth below, declared that he saw the fire through the seams of the deck. The cabin at the same mo ment was filled with smoke, which blackened papers lying about Captain Johnstone saya that the discoloration of the paint was like that produced by 'smoking the ship' with charcoal. A peculiar and indescribable smell was perceived for some time after the ex plosion, and a quantity of flakes like the soot from a steamer's funnel were scat tered abont. Captain Milman atatea that on hia last trip to Sydney a fireball was observed passing ahead of hia ahip, about one a.m., on Monday, the 17th. It traveled in a horizontal direction from northwest to southeast. ADDarently it waa ao near the ahip that the officer of the watch altered bar conrse to avoid it, when it burst, and for the moment the whole heavens seemed to be in a blaze of light, aod at the same time there was terrific thunder. Lightning and thunder continued at intervals throughout the night and next day (Tuesday) until about halt-past eight o clock, wnen me weather cleared up." The Tortngas Prlsoasrs. The Boston Advertiser, apeaking of the men now confined in the Dry iortu gaa on the charge of complicity in the assassination of President Lincoln, saya : " Nobody ever conceived that Arnold waa e-uiltv of anything bevond the plot to abduct; there are grave doubts whether O'Laugblin, now dead, waa implicated farther than that, and the commission which tried them understood this felly, or they would have been sentenced to the gallows, instead of for life at the Tortu- gaa. opaogier, wuoae bia years icriu a now more than half expired, is undoubt edly an innocent man, knowing nothing of either plot; but everybody who ever examined the matter, except Presi dent Johnson, became convinced of thia long ago," The Alexandria Gazette adds to the above: "We believe Dr. Mudd to be entirely innocent It ia time thia outrage upon justice and humanity should cease." Press and Herald. Wendell Phillips says, in the Anti Slavery Standard of last week, that Con gress should make a constitutional amendment providing that no State should make any distinction among its citizens in regard to civil or political rights or privileges the right to suffrage or the eligibility to eflice oni account of race, color or previoas condition, and de clares the constitution will not be perfect till aex is inelnded in this ennmeration.
