The great holiday so universally ob served in almost every country and by almost every race of Christianized peo" pie, has come and gone again, with all its joys and sorrows, its pleasures and, we might say, its pains, only we doubt if there are not some headaches still linger, ihg behind as we write, but they too will probably be gone before this article is read by the subscribers to, and borrowers of the Journal Preparations for Christmas were com menced early in the week and large quan tities of toys, presents and provisions were secured several days in advance. But the rush for Christmas presents and provisions culminated on CHRITMAS EVE. The different provision houses were jammed with people bearing away large baskets filled with meats, poultry, veget ables and other choice comestibles, and the stores, jewelry shops and toy shops were also crowded, and shop keepers looked tired and jaded with the unusual amount of labor they had been called on to perform. Christmas trees were in great demand and many very handsome ones were constructed by prirate fam" lies. So great was the rage for this Drnidic conception that we heard of a case where a man had trimmed a nice fir in his front yard, and gathering np tie" lopped off twigs, and, boring holes in a stright hickory cane, construct 'd a handsome imitation of a Christmas tree, which he sold for $1 50. Turkies were almost as abundant as porkers in Cincin uati.and live turkeys were carried through the street wearing a look of ho ieless res ignation as if they new their fate. Ducks ceased tcjpack out of respect prola'jly of the doctors, and chickens and quails were unceremoniously consigned to the perditions of the kitchen and the pantry The little people ran along the streets in crowds gazing with eager delight and hope and regret at the innumerable sparkling and shining toys, and Christ mss presents in the various sHow-windows, wishing that Kris Kinkle would slip this or that toy into their atoctlrijje, white they alept. Parents crowded into the toy shops, selecting for Wiliie and Harry and Fan nieand Effie and Annie and Carrie, and young men and yonng women were look ing oat rich gifts for sweet hearts and lovers. The streets were crowded with hurry ing and loitering people, and young Am erica in crowds clustered cn the corners with cigar or lucifer match in one hand a shooting cracker in the other, and a bundle of the same Chinese invention in their pockets, and pop, pop went the lit tie torpedoes on every hand, and at al most every step, timid maidens were heard to utter a merry scream as the tor. pedoes exploded at their feet The)passer by was often startled by the loud report of the mimic cannon planted on the enrb stone, and joyous greetings and curious inquiries were heard on every hand. Many of the Sabbath Schools held their levees, and gathered the rich fruits from v.. Ir handsome Christmas trees, acconnts of which, so far as we were able to gath er theWwe published in our last issue, and at an early hour the little folks tucked themselves away in their snug little'beds, to dream of the brilliant scenes they had witnessed, after strictly charg ing papa and mama to wake them early on christmas morn-iso. " : Could' aTl the scenes of joy and eager delight, and also of disappointment, too, that transpired on that beautiful morn, have been witnessed by the same per son, for what a huge and delightful vol ume they would have afforded material. How many young hearts were made glad, how many tears of disappointment were shed, must forever remain unwrit ten. ' The happy ones, we hope, were by far the most numerous, and the streets were early crowded with joyous little creatures anxious to tell their little friends what Santa Class bad sent them, and to in quire what they had received themselves, and everything looked animated and joyj ous, and the bright sun, the balmy air, the happy hearts and the rich gifts, all conspired to make this a most delightful and beautiful CHRISTMAS DAY. The usual religions services were held in several of the churches, and the usual Christmas dinners were partaken , . . , v of, the usual amount of candies and s .veet-meats devoured, the usual wishes of " merry Christmas" were ex. chmnged. The usual amount of gun- powder was burnt, and perhaps more than tWe usual amount of good and bad Yraisky and other stimulente were drank, and at a late hour at night the quiet families retired to their couches, many thanking God for the bounties, the mer cies and pleasures of the day, and ail wishing for themselves and their friends, as we do for our many thousand readers, A HAPPY NEW YEAR. A Cold Bath. A young lad fell into the riveroff Hall's wharf-boat, Saturday afternoon, but swam to shore, experi - encing nothing more, as we hope, than a sort of chilly sensation. k I (J : i f J I v f PwteBTTEBUK scsdav :kuu cusiaT UlS.-Br an odi most pleasant leniinisecace of Christmas day, to us as to hundreds of others, will be the Christ mas tree and festival of the Sabbath School connected with the Old School Presbyterian church, held on Christmas morning in the church, corner of Second and Vine street. The house was dense ly crowded with the scholars, their pa rents and their friends, and everything passed off in the most pleasant and de lightful manner. The exercises were opened by music by the choir, and the invocation of the Divine presence and blessing by the pas tor, Rev. Alex. Sterrctt. This wa3 t'ollow- pithy speeches by several little boys of the school. Addresses were then made by Rev. Mr.Sterrett, J. F. Glover, Esq., Rev. Mr. Walters of the Methodist church, and Mr. McCullousjh, of Henderson. All the speeches were excellent and ex ceedingly appropriate to the occasion. Mr. MeCullough, who is a Sunday School Missionary, and has established more schools and brought under their influence more children, perhaps, than any man in the West, was particularly felicitous in his address which was plain, simple and comprehensive, being admira bly adapted to the understanding of the children. But the most interesting and attrac tive speech of all was that made to the children by the magnificent Christmas tree, from the thousand tongues that hung from its branches or that clustered around its trunk, speaking like the clov en tongues on the Pentecostal day,plain ly understood by all, whether Jews, Greeks, r Elamites, dwellers in Mesa potamia, or elsewhere, telling of a free, enlightened and Christian people, bles sed with peace, prosperity and plenty. Of fond parents, generous friends, faith ful teachers, and happy youths, bounte ously provided for by the liberal officers and friends of the school. The Christmas tree, was the vory fin est we have seen in many years, and was, as we are informed, a present to the school, by Capt. Gus. Lemcke, the gen tlemanly Superintendent of the Evans yille and Cairo Packet Line, whose pop ularity is only equalled by his princely liberality. Tt towered from the floor to the ceil ing, rising out of a moss-covered knoT numerous artificial white rabbits clus tering around itsjbase. On the highest peak, stood a beautiful minatnre of the (ioddess of Liberty, bearing the proud emblem of our liberty, the Star Spangled Banner, with two other like emblems of our nation on either hand. The wide-spreading branches of the tree bowed beneath the weight of elegant cornucopias, filled with choice delicacies, while handsome toys were interspersed, and attractive books clustered around the towering trunk. Wreaths of evergreea, hung with gar lao.ls, joined the tree to either wall, which were also decorated with the flag of beauty and of glory. The whole affair was creditable, in the highest degree, to the ladies of the school who got it up, and we never witnessed a happier throng of Sunday School schol- ! ars, as they sat beneath the rich folds of the stars and stripes, which gives them protection and hope, mingling their sweet voices in songs of joy and praise, and receiving the bountiful presents furnish ed them by their kind teachers. Two tables flanked the pulpit, groan ing beneath pyramids of cakes, nuts, and fruits,fwhich were distributed among the happy scholars, who will long remem ber the Christmas of 1863, as one of great happiness and delight. Mr. Ma ghee, the Superintendant of the School, conducted the exercises with great abil ity. Pike Coukty Hogs. James Evans, at Petersburg : 1 Hog 801 lbs nett. 10 Hogs, 10 mouths old, averaging SSB lbs nett, James Barker, I Hog, 735 lbs nett. The hogs are what is called the Ches ter Whctes, and were introduced into Evansville, by Mr. Zeba H. Cook, and into Pike county by Goodlet, Morgan. The above were packed by Goodlet Morgan, for Foster, Gwyn & Co., of this city. They are we think, exceedingly hard to beat. A Shperi! Dinner. The proprietors of the American House gave a Christmas dinner to the business men of the city, to which of course the press was invited. Though we were not present ourself, we have reason to believe it was a grand af fair, being, as we are assured, one of the most sumptuous feasts ever set in th'13 city. The air, the earth and the water gave each liberal contributions, and every guest felt it wag good to be there.
