. CHRISTMAS. VAST AXD PRESENT.
:; The • old, old anniversary which stands
like the star in the East,' a blessed sym-
I bol *; of Christianity, ; has . ;.come. again
to . tell its never irioriotbrious.' story, of
"hope "and .love. \ Heralded by the .holly,,
the mistletoe, the; trailing; cedar, and by
i a ■ thousand ? subtle signs of merriment
'■ Avhicii 1 permeate the air; another > Christ-:
* mas lias dawned upon us. : . The] children,
perhaps, have found its ; approach a tardy
; "ane," for with therii this is a day of long
Expected and unstinted_ hilarity,; but: with
" ilioseV'of us who feel ; the scars^of time.
"tbe~ anniversary has a tincture of sadness
Vkinto the Eharpness of old wine.
" Verily, this is the day of all others when
-we most enjoy > tne society ; of . those we
llove and most ; lament ; the absence of
"those whose; seats ™are y vacant. Whether
; the' absentees ' be . awaj^on land- or, sea, or.
Whether ;they. have made their last abode
••in that undiscovered ' country from
whose :"bourh;- no"; traveller ".returns,-* their,
.names are held-. in fond-; recollection and
"their virtues are" lovingly recalled.
Tt And so, like some great house festooned
from. room, to'room with . evergreens, the
Christian world from ocean to ocean to- .
t aay-is linked together by- a tie- of coni-'
mon- brotherhood— a ;tie; which is an-.
riually strengthened at this' happy; season. "
!lT Nor.; should we who now feel ourselves
•chilled -by the frosts of winter seek- to
brush aside the little touch of sadness
'which makes' itself almost imperceptibly
."ielt ere; the day is ended. After all, that
feeling owes its origin to ouri;habit of
* comparing ■ bur • owri emotionsj with those
■of the' children— the" - joyous, . , hilarious,
I romping,-'-; frolicking children, -who; are
drawing, dividends? of- pleasure from -a
i long-standing investment .of •■ expectation
"and overtaxed patience. The ; contrast be-;
; 'tween;: these- youngsters and ourselves is
J-siiafp, '^painfully"" sh*arp,' : may be, but if
we study the little ones with the eyes of
"fathers" arid _ mothers, or grandfathers
and .grandmothers, Vl,V 1 , we --will, soon "find
their enthusiasmr contagious: : Possibly,
too, we may. not share the views of baby
dom on the subject' of Santa; Claus,; but
v.eurely' we have cause, to appreciate the
■ veverence in which, that, mythical gentle
man is held. His "raison d'etre"— if we
tnay use 'a Gallic term in connection with
;ho typical a Teuton— is based bri doctrines
■-Tyhicb embody some of the best thoughts
of our religion. ;He is generous, ; thought
" lul, "uridiscriiniriatirig, .: and— best of "all> for
; the bad children— forgiving. ■ ; .--.". >. t _-.- : - -
And then, too, it is this same" Kris
••:■ Kf ingle, who scatters -.broadcast^through- |
* out -the world" the : Christmas' : spirit, the !
'i lndefinable, indescribable, . irresistible
'Kpirit of the Yuletideseason, which goeth
:■ forth- into; all lands like" some sweet in
r.ccrise: floating -through cathedral halls. *

prevail. in every household,: be it mansion

" Arid now what, at the last/ is the-spe

is that she should, .through "; her Legisla-"

a climate , as mild almost - always \ as a

seventy-five; mile east of Porto Rico.; T
ogether they' cover 127 square miles, and
their aggregate population is 30,000. ; They
have /belonged to'; Denmark since '1671,
and while they have ; never afforded : her

her any great trouble.' Their /people:

THE THIXG TO DO.
lii noticing the movement to celebrate
the 300 th anniversary of the settlement of
Jamestown, the Chicago Tribune .; says
that ''Virginia \ has much ; to ' off er ;; v which
is of interest as illustrating. American his
tory." "In its way," adds the Tribune/
f "the Virginia tercentenaix will be quite
as suggestive as th c : discovery, of : Am erica
celebrated at Chicago, and- the centennial :
of the Declaration of ! Independence ?• at
Philadelphia, and still more so ; than /the
first ("exportation'; of cotton/ celebrated /at
New Orleans; seventeen years ago, or the
Louisiana. Purchase, .which St.: Loulsiwill'
celebrate two years-hence.". : , . . . -
N, These /comments ;; ■; are i ■in /: consonance,
with a" treatment of; the~ subject\we: have
noticed in a number of: our northern ex
changes. The proposed Jamestown ■;. ter
centenary is certainly exciting widespread
interest from the ■ ; historical and * senti
mental pointof .view. . ; ,There is a." 1 growing
recognition 'of the great importance of the
event it will commemorate and of the
relations of; that , event ;to [ thedevelopirienti

tinent—to the genesis of the United

the members of the Constitutional Con
verition talk too much and vote too little.
'Without a doubt, the debates would in
terest the public more if the speeches
were brief and well prepared, and were
addressed directly to the subject. There
has been immense latitude allowed in
most of the discussions, and the com
merit is frequently heard . that" - the
speeches during the last three months
have not been as able, or pithy, as those
delivered the three months previous.
In that. view w'e_ coincide, and we Ithink
the reason for the decadence : in question
! is that -there has •been *sb)much iteration^
and reiteration ; so much threshing out " of
old straw. But we have hopes of -better
things now.
The convention took a recess on ac
count of ; the hot weather; another on aY
count of the Norfolk convention; an
other at election time, and is now hav
ing a Christmas .holiday. We may pre
sume that there will be no further occa
sion for a recess, and; that; beginning
with the New. . Tear, the convention's'
work will .go on steadily and uninter
ruptedly.
