The tc:i parties Lave been tlie prominent excitement of the Hub during the past week, and have fully shadowed forth the lon' se ries and centennial celebrations which this section of the country will be in flicted with during the next few years. The prospect is really appalling when .me thinks of the amount of buncomb nnd spread-eagle speech-making which will lie recorded by the enterprising press of this section, and one almost wishes that those old parties who kick ed up such a row a bun cd years ago had concentrated their operations and offered fewer opportunities for talk by the present generation of their descen dants. The "Woman's Suffrage party at Fanueil Hall was by far the most successful of the cek-bnitions and the addresses were to the point and inter esting. The "taxation without repre sentation" cry fitted their case so ex actly that their hobbj and the occa sion were easily run together. "We had a representation of the destruction of the tea at another entertainment, but the savages for the occasion being taken from the ranks of the various Sunday schools made it difficult to im agine anything like the old time scene. One of our big tea. companies seized the opportunity as an advertising me dium and distributed miniature chests of tea, said to be filled with the best of their stock toj be kept as souvenirs, trusting that the poetic associations would prevent an inspection of their contents. Unfortuuately the proposal to again tax tea forced the price up and many thrifty lads gathered up these samples for home use, but con cluded to get along with meadow hay a little while longer rather than use the "choice"' tea in the sample chests. OUIt CITY CHARITY BUCCAL' seems to be threatened with a shaking up that will prove a serious matter with the officers of this circumlocution office- It has evidently been the aim of those who planned this bureau to discover how not to do it, and the suf fering poor who have applied in vain at its doors think it a success in this par ticular. As near as an outsider can discover, the management of the State, city and private charities, which all center in tlie building occupied by the bureau, are in charge of antiquated or otherwise incompetent persons, and their lack of judgment necessitates a multitude of rules and regulations for the control of the business of the bu reau, and these rules make a barrier between the worthy poor and the help which they require which few have per severance or strength enough to break down. A poor woman who is in a starv ing condition and comes to ask bread for herself and little ones tit; home is hard ly in a condition to give a history of her ancestors since the landing at "Plvmnrli T?,n.4r or f!:u5t.le (1nrili. vet the questions tisked at the Bureau in volves about as extended a knowledge of one's antecedents as would be requir ed by the former statement. The prac tical result of all this questioning is to utterly discourage and dishearten all bab professional beggars. The ques tion of charity and its most economi cal application has never yet been scV settled, but in that good time coming it is to be hoped that public and pri vate disbursements will be made by persons chosen for their large hearts and large brains rather than from that numerous class of be little do little people who are provided for by. their friends in office by shelving them upon some charity board. THE MTEBAllY WOULD of this city were somewhat startled at the change in the ownership of The Atlantic and Otr Yoimj Folks and feared that the fame of itbes.- standard magazines would depart with the old imnrint on the title paw; but instead of this the irenei-.il opinion is that the new nnblishers will revive the fame of both publications and still further in crease their popularity. Tlie store oc cupied for the past lew years oy tue Messrs.

THE MUSICAL portion of the conununity have nad several fine cntiainnleiltti during fclib East week, the lUpafc nolit&bie of which as been. UiO Christmas Oratorio of .the Messiah by the Handel and Hay den Society. As this was probably the only performance previeiw & the triennial festival in May tlie attendance was very large, and notwithstanding the absence of Mrs. H. M. Smith, who was expected to make her first appearance with the Society, the performance was a highly creditable one. At the Harvard Con cert on Friday last, Madame Madeline Schiller mado her first appaiuhctt iii America, and proved that fter reputa tion abroad as ollid of the leading inter preters of piano music was well 'de Served. The lady's. pe)f6iTance pares favorably vrith o't the pian ists who Iiare come to us from the Con tinent, notwithstanding that ho flourish of the trumpets of the press announppd h.er advent. This evening the fioyl&lon Club numbering about fifty male voices gave its fhst Ubhcert at Music Hall and trayta promise of becoming in a few Seasons a rival, of the Apollo Club, which takes the lead as a Bulging club-. Rumor says that a hew unisiQ hall will in another yeAi- ri$e fforil t&8 lot at the junction of "Washington and Boylstou sU-ecte devastated by the "great fire, jr.,' but nothing definite can be learn ed in regard to the plana. THEATRICAL attractions have become varied during the past week by the production of the Naiad Quten at the Boston Theatreand. the piece has been brought out with a completeness and care never surpassed by any theatre in this country not ex cepting the Grand Opera House of New York under the management of Jem Fisk. The scenery is set to dis play the entire size of the vast stage; and the costumes and properties sur pass any thing ever known in this country. I cant say that the spectac ular drama is a favorite with me, but if we are to have it, let us havg it in per fection or not at all. The Museum finds the ''Geneva Cross" sufficiently attractive to fill its cozy little audito rium eight times a week, but will with draw it to make way for "100 years old," "Little Enily" and a number of other attractions, among which "The Stranger" will be selected for its "Sat urday bill." The "Howard" has Brookhouse Bowler and a good English Opera Troupe as one of the many at tractions for its holiday prograinme,but change is the order of the night at this place and almost any thing draws full houses. SnEMYILLEl The Holidays School Ixnmiimtious, Cnlico Ball, Kte. To the Union and American: Shelbyville, Dec. 26. The exami nation of the Shelbyville high school began on Monday, continuing through "Wednesday. A tasteful selection of readings, dialogues and songs were in terspersed with the declamations and other exercises. On Tuesday evening the courthouse was densely crowded with an audience to hear the young la dies and erentlemen declaim for aTrize. "We cannot particularize the merits of each speaker. A doctor, a lawyer and a merchant were constituted judges, and each, sitting apart from the others, graded each performance by niarko ac cording to his individual judgment. At the close the marks on the three lists were added together, and it was found tlie highest aggregate of marks had been awarded to Miss Lizzie Smith, daughter of Prof. H. H. Smith, and he was presented with the prize, a handsome copy of Shakespeare. "While the committee were adding up the marks the audience were entertained with a calisthenic exercise by the young ladies. The way the girls .went from "right shoulder shift" and marched iround in battle array, reminded me of war and woman's rights. The exer cise was a fine illustration of what the word callisthenic means, "graceful strength." ADDITIONAL SCHOOL TAX. On the 24th of January next the voters of this civil District will deter mine whether two mills on the dollar shall be added to the tax already as sessed for common school purposes. I am-imforined by the Superintendent thitt the additional tax will be needed j to sustain the high school another year. as well as to insure the appropriation of two thousand dollars by Dr. Sears from the Peabody fund. En passant, I may venture my opinion that Bedford possesses the best superintendent in this State. I CHRISTMAS. On Christmas eve, Mr. H. Z. Boone md Miss Lizzie Nelson, wore united in wedlock hy Rcv.-'Wickliffe "Weakly, md the -merry party that assembled were regaled witu a ricn oriaai least. The same night the rising genera tion of Shelbyville were enlivened with a juvenile ball, which lasted far into C hristmas morning. The boys aid darkies made the most of Christinas in the way of "sound and fury signifying nothing." The police were oft" duty, and the corporate laws were suspended as to the nuisance of noise. Some bruised heads were the result of too much liquor. The novelty of the day wis a "turkey shooting," which passed off without any thrilling incidents. The night ushered m a "calico ball," which was highly en joyed, and arrangements are already complete ior a "lancy-dress Dan next Tuesday night. But the energy of our young men is not all in their .toes, rls is evidenced by the recent reorgani zation of the HER3IETHENIAN SOCIETY, for the promotion of good manners, morals and mental culture. To-night the question of the desirability of sub stituting a national system for the present State plan of common schools was ably debated by Messrs. E. Shep- ird and ti. Si. riiiman, xnc putiiic are cordially niviteu to tneir meeting next Friday nig it. Pikenix. tiii: KoarAXCE of reality. A widow of seventy years died in Portsmouth the other day, the truth of whose life was stranger than many a fiction. At the age of eighteen she mar ried the choice of her heart, a young sea captain, and after a brief and happy hone3-moon, he left her for a foreign voyage. But his ship was never heard from, and doubtless foundered at sea, with all on board. The young husband as he was dressing for sea the morning he left home, playfully threw a pair of stockings backward over his head, to test some sailoi 's charm or other, and they chancing to land on the top of a canopy bedstead- he remarked, "Sarah, let them staj' there till I come back." And many and many a year they have laid there, but, alas ! he never returned. But neither love, nor hope, nor expectations ever died out in her faithful heart during all the many years of her lonely pilgrimage. To the last, whenever a door opened, "or a step was heard approaching, she turned to see if it might not be he whom she mourned and sought. But he never came again to her let us hope and trust that she has gone to him. Bv her desire, she was buried in her wedding dress, with white glove3 and wedding ring. Her sister, also, had a peculiar but very different expe rience. After an engagement of twenty-seven years, her lover left Portsmouth for New York, and in a very short time became enamored with an Irish servant girl in his brother's family and married her.

Tlie stock lias been held very firmly at the higher pnes, and this has restricted business. The steamer "Merrimac" arrived from lUo last 'jaturday with 0,143 bags. 4,119 of which have been sold; bcsides"G,343 bags, per "Anna," have been disposed of, leaving a stock on Wed nesday of !30,9o8 bags. At the out ports the stocks were 50,8(54 bags; total in the United States 07,S22 bags. Of course hold era have a great advantage in the position, and although there is a hill in tho trade at present, it is expected that within the next two months there will be considerable bu siness. January and Februarys usually an active trade period, and there seems to be nothing to indicate but that this will be the case in the opening niontlis of 1S73. There is nothing especially new :n the po sition here, or nothing to stata in ref erence to the tendency of the mar ket but what has already been stated in the liulletin. AVe pointed out in bur last the various influences calculate. 1 to ad vance prices, and during the week there has been an advance of c per lb, lraiking the range at the close of "Wednesday 2:5,a28c gold, the latter figure for small lets. There is next to nothing loading at K: o Janeiro for the United States, and the European markets are firm. These are strong points in holders' favor, and a further advance would not be surprising. Uespi'.o the ex traordinary high prices at present ruling, there seems to be no perceptible falling olf. in the consumption, and the coffee market continues to be one of the wondirsin busi ness experience. The consumption in the United States, for some years past, as is well known, has been gradually increasing ever since the war, and it may not be un interesting to snow tne increase 111 some detail. The following is from the "Cofl'ee Trade" statement, hy Messrs. C. II. SchoIV- ner and II. E Moring, showing the con sumption for the years named: Tons.
