Christmas Is a word of (nod slrnifleanee, II
Is tmlnentlr calculated to Inspire) profound rev
flections of tht past, the present, and tha future.
It ! a familiar word, and aTerybodr throughout
Christendom understands Its purport and knows
Its neanlnf and tha source of Ms origin. Vol
umes haTt been written to explain lti nature,
the whercfort of Its introduction at afeetlTal,
aad to Impress upon tht human mind and heart
the tenons which it teaches and Illustrates.
The whole Christian world accept ai true" the
statement that lSffT Fart aro Jesus of Naiereth

of December, then, la obaerred ai a day comment
oratire or the birth or the Son of Ood. It li no
part of our present purpose to enter upon the
dlsousslon of this subject In ear theological
sense. We leare all such matters to the pulpit,
the proper theatre for polemical discussion.
We reoofalie the Christmas holidays, as the
treat mass of the Christian world recognise
them, as days of joy and f ladneisthe time to
ne merry &d happri the time to force! old
wrongs, fort Ire all enemies, renew old acquaint
aaces, make new friends, and to scatter gifts and
On this glorious Christmas morn everybody Is
entitled to be merry, joyous, and happy, and It
Alls us with gratitude towards that Great Be tag,
the Father of us all, and toward Ills Son Jesus
Christ when we contemplate the many happy
homes which nil ourt and all Christian lands.
What myriads of happy children will awake this
day to gladness. Many bright eyes will sparkle
at the first glance at the distended stocking where
good St. Nicholas has placed the long-4ooked-for
aod coretcd gifts How little feet will patter
OTer carpets, and along halls up and down stairs,
to show mamma and pep the precious gifts which
Setta CUui has brought. And then the beauti
ful Christmas tree, the accustomed morning kiss,
more earnest and affectionate, If possible, this
morning than on ordinary occasions. Then the
larger and more costly gifts which pa has made
to ma and those sweet and delicate displays of
brotherly and sisterly remembrances which are
symbolised by those more costly sevrenfri which
He scattered upon tables, encompass the body
and nestle near the heart. And then to think
of those old homesteads and ancestral mansions,
where troupes of happy grand-children bustle in
and out, and hang around the old arm-chair of
the aged grandslre, and listen to his and ora-nf.
ma's stories of the olden time. And then again to
think of the many homes that are made happy by
the returned wanderers from distant lands, many
of whom had been glren up as lost, and If not
Uke the prodigal In every Instance, yet like obe
dient children hare now returned to father's
house) and again the gatherings of those who
once occupied the same household, surrounded
the same hearthstone, and knealt at the same
altars, now once more returned to greet each
other under the same parental tree, and spend
the happy Christmas time. Vacant chairs there
are In these households, but our sadness on ac
count of the loved and lost pssses away when we
reoollect that though they will not come to us,
we shall go to them, to spend a perpetual Christ
mas In the bright world beyond.
This, though but feebly drawn, Is to us a pleas
ing picture. Would we could atop here, but we
cannot. There are other scenes this morning In
this world of ours which we must not omit to
notice. Oo with us, dear reader, and you also,
who hare your good things and are well to do
In this world's riches, Into the by-ways, alleys,
and dark places of the olty, and look upon other
and far different conditions of fallen humanity,
and what do you seel Don'tstaitbaok, for what
you look upon Is what Is dally seen by the eye
of llim whom you this day worship and praise
the man Christ Jesus, who said to you and to
all of us, "The poor you hare alwaye with you."
Let us enter one of these receptacles of the poor
of the city, for we may enter without being bid
den. If the latch string Is not on the outside in
token of hospitality within, still the door Is not
barred against ust we can ro In Look, ye sons
and daughters of plenty, upon that eouch of mts-
eraoie straw ana rags Do you see those squalid,
half famished, suffering little children and their
almost starved mother, herself a widow, or per-
naps worse tor mere is a drunken husband and
father, and still In his cups Must these ehli-

they must) but their present needs, especially on
Christmastime, may be greatly mitigated) and
men, leavlog this particular feature of the suf
fering poor, we may speak of honest poverty,
men and women without occupation, and such
as can get no work, and consequently are desti
tute of bread and fuel and clothing, and all
tnings eise mat makes lire endurable. Oo then
and visit the poor during these Christmas days,
and ye who have means to give, give, and Ood
shall bless you
We have never been ambitious to have great
ricnes, nut in times like these we urce the rich
and all who can contribute of their substance to
bless the poor If there was ever a time when
we desired the wealth of Astor or Stewart, that
time Is now. We would make some raiment
storehouses, produce stores, and market places
look very different from what they do to-day.
We would deplete some of the granaries of the
land, and make some hearts happy that nowplne
In sadness May Ood have pity on the rich as
they close their eyes to this condition of the
poor, and fall to hear their cry for bread.
But we will close this already too lengthy arti
cle by wishing all our readers a merry Christmas.

If so, are the stockholders responsible for their
To this inquiry I reply that National Banks
are incorporated associations, dolor business
under a law of the United States, with certain
s peel fled and limited powers. Section I of the
national Uurrency net defines these powers,
wherein the National Banking Associations are
authorised to "exercise under this act all such
Incidental powers as shall be necessary to carry
on tha business of banking by discounting and
negotiating promissory notes, drafts, bills of ex
change, and other evldencesot debtj by receiving
deposits) by buying and selling exchange, coin.
and bullion) by loaning money on personal
security) by obtaining, issuing, and circulating

A National Bank may exercise any or all of
these privileges, but nothing more. It may be
claimed that a bank may receive packages of val
uable securities, plate or other tnings, (or a are
keeping, under the power granted to receive "de
posit e ' Hut the term "deposits" has n definite,
well-ascertained meaning, as established by cus
tom, and authenticated by Judicial decisions, and
la limited In the sense In which It la used here to
deposits of money payable on demand. If It
means anything moro than this It may Include
anything or eery thing If It would Include
silver plate It might Include cotton or tobacco,
which would be absurd. The practice to which
you refer eaonot, then, be eanctloned by this
particular power granted
Hut can It be sanctioned by the authority con
ferred to "exereiaa aueh Incidental Dower as
shall bo necessary to carry on the business of
banking,' ate I 1 think not. The custody of
valuables may tx a convenience 10 ine oirectors,
atoekholdera and euatomera of a bank, but tt la
not In the slightest degree necessary Incident
to tho business of banking. Hut there Is a di
rect limitation to the scope of these Incidental

on the bualness of banking by discounting prom

Nothing la said about loaning money on real es
tate; nevertheless, It Is Just aa directly prohib

words The rule, then, Is that bank can exer

and that a power not granted Is specifically pro
