ST. THEEasA's PREiBYTERY.-We under- marl
; ,stand that the condition of -the-residence amo
fog clergymen attached to St. Theresa's ma4
Cerceh is quite dangerous, and necessitates itsel
some immediate repairs. For this purpose fout
R ev. Father Kenny is obliged to appeal to had
his friends for assistance, and to-day .ia
(Christmas) an extraordinary collection Itoli
S will be--taken in St. Theresa's Church in des(
this behalf. Besides this there will be a but
grand tombola, to be drawn on the 6th of isit
January next comprising a great variety of uev
articles. We are told that nearly every one has
of of the articles is worth much more than the cusl
--price of a ticket, thus rendering the chance we
of winning quite attractive. The reason of neg
this profusion of prizes is that so great a thel
number of valuable article1 was left over wit
trqm the recent fair held in that parish. pie.
The splendid sewing machine, won by toY
ticket 138, will probably be among the
- number, as the lucky'winner has not called the
forit, and if he should not do soduring the lett
'ooring week, it will .be considered as do- stew
mated by him for this purpose. Hard as be
are the times, a generous response will no ma,
doubt follow Father Kenny's appeal. abc
THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY.-The highly
· important event of establishing an ecclesi
astical Seminary for the Archdiocese took
l~ace last Sunday afternoon, the building
bbing blessed with the imposing ceremonial to
of the Church. After an eloquent address to
from Rev. Father Millet, followed by Ben- I
edletion of the Blessed Sacrament in the
church of St. Mary, the assembled multi
tade, headed by the Rev. clergy, marched tin
in procession to the new building, occupy- mi
Aiung-the well-known site of the old Ursuline *
clutrcl. This is located upon the same
square with the Archiepiscopal church and he
Sretaspge, connected with which are ample de
grounds. A more de'irable" location: for tea

When the firt-born ups of a king is an- beyo
nouzced, the -whole >ation u tpresses its stanl
congratulations and puts on the holiday most
aspeMgted for an event so auspicious and are
important; throughout the life of' an hon- crow
ored sovereign his people recognize the re- soles
turn o.his birthday with general rejoicing. pom
Christ'is the eldest son, the heir of the it th
throne, the living King. His advent was Ai
the greatest blessing that had befallen the high
human race since the creation, and whether diate
in consideration: of the honors due to His thre
august msjesty, or of the immeasurable o'ck
grace that ilis birth brought upon man- high
kind, it is fitting that the anniversary of Si
that great event should be made an epoch higl
of gladness and festivity. -. - .. as
It is really surprising how universally usIu
the custom is maintained. Nations have and
fallen away from the faith, and become 1
heretic, individuals have grown skep- higl
tical or infidel, communities have lost all o'cl,
marks of Christianity except the name, yet S
among them all the old Catholic custom of a.,
making Christmas a great festival maintains uut
itself in full vigor. This shows how pro- at I
foundly the veneration of the ages of Faith i
had made its impress upon the popular at I
'art. It is true that in many places the this
holiday character of the occasion hiss been &
desecrated by intemperance and excess; o'cl
but even its abuse gives evidence of its ex, k
istence and of its antiquity. We have the
never heard of more thatn one race which ani
e has to some extent forgotten this ancient k
e custom. The Puritans of New England, o'cl
e we are told, treat Christmas with open o'cl
f neglect,'and substitute, as the natal day of vet
a their religion, the executive thanksgiving, A
r with its hallowed associations of pumpkin A.
* pie. . The exception, however, but serves sio
y to'establish the rule.
° Even among some'very good Catholics, op,
d though, the feitival is honored'more in the me
° letter than the spirit of its institution. In- th
stead of being .a feast of brotherly love, it chi
e becomes one of selfish indulgence. Home is 4
o made gay with the Christmas tree, the mi
abounding luxuries, the hospitable wel
come, the glowing fires and the flashing dr
lights, but the widow and orphan around
k the corner are left to their poverty and sor- mi
rows. The heart warmth commences and the
ends at home. It is not enthusiastic enough
to overflow and spread its blessings upon
neighboring misfortune.
But there are many with whom wishing TI
." a " merry Christmas" means something. It of
is not a mere formula of words, but a sen
timent of the heart, and they are deter- w
mined that, so far as in them lies, it shall T1
" be a merry and happy time for all. They si,
Is cannot enjoy the good things which God at
ed has given them if they kifow of misery and
destitution within their reach without at- a
tempting to throw a few ,gleams of light to
apon its darkness. They wish all to enjoy e
ld the occasion because they honor the event m
he commemorated, and desire that everybody te
in should do the same.
ist The present Christmas does not dawn as w
th auspiciously as has sometimes been the 21
ug case. War, with all its woes, turns joy w
into weeping in two great nations. In our t
own country, commercial distress and ap- cI
n- prehension cast a shadow of adversity over tI
as, the whole population. Yet, even amid the
e clash of arms, true hearts will turn with p
he joy and hope to the God of peace, and the p
is cares of povterty will find a solace at the c,
its comfortless crib where the Lord of all b
wealth laid that wealth aside with contempt.
iv. Whether we be as rich as the Kings from If
ch, the East or as poor as the shepherds who ri
ar- watched on the neigll,oring hills, all can i,
d rejoice and say, " Glory to God in the i
lay highest and on earth peace to men of good o
re- well." t

SCENE IN THs E CATHEDRAL T AMaENs.- dj
,g The followinugis an extract from a letter co:
It of a correspondent to the London Stand- rot
ard : any
_ I the evening I went to the cathedral to ter
ll witness the last service of the Triduum.
The light of the old lamnps gave an impres
y sion of still greater size to the cathedral, sti
,d. and seemed to increase- its massive pro- po
id portions foutrfold. What conveyed to me ,
a most perfect idea of the immense space
Wt- as the distitut effect of the huge bell. It A I
lit took some time to realise t kt it was in timhe an
belfry of the church, and not at the other br
Send of the town. Suddenly an opening was
at made in the creed,, and the people.drew
ly tenderly and almost reverently back, as wi
the wounded soldiers, who were just able glh
to move, crcpt 'f'eebly in. Three of them iwo
aswere mere boys,-certainly not above 18 or
hie 20. One had lost both his arms, another an
Dy was barely supported by crotchese,and the wi
ur third, the youngest looking of all, was half lii
carried in the arms of his father, a hopeless ni
P- cripple for life. Nothing touched me more
er titan the womanly devotion of their com- hi
lie sades to these poor sufferers, and the pains h
they took to place them in comfortable th
positions. A deep hush fell upon the
le people as the venerable archbishop, pre
he ceded by over one hundred priests, deacons, es
al and sub-deacons, comnmerLced the proces- ec
sioa. Each held a large lighted candle,
pt. which threw a singular glare through the s
iru long cathedral shadows on the ground w,
ho roof. I was particularly struck with the eý
little choristers. They were all dressed B
an in pure white, anlid never in my life have I
hle looked on mlore beautiful faces than some at
mod of them. They were inmore like quaint pic- w
tiures by old ruasters. They narg wonder- et

staple, and while both rich and poor can, ome
as a general thing, reduce expenses so as mau
to meet the emergency, there are some so can
poor that they have already reduced their most
outlay to the .lowest possible limit. not
In the meantime expenses increase. Coal
is at double price, wood is extremely high, wlhi
and the severity of the season almost un- to

fering must ensue. This must be a matter

There was a gentleman of wealth who Ip
had acquired thle habit of living luxuriously put
and profusely, but- a charitable disposition
and the preseuce of much distressing pov- ed
erty in his neighblrhood, wrought upon rua
him to such an extent that finally his in- ma
come was expended for its relief. t Gradu St.
ally his costly furniture gave place to uIp
articles of a ,omfortable but far simpler
r style, and while hmospitality was even more
cordial and open-handed than before, ex
. travagance entirely disappeared. At last
old age sapped tile vigor of his frame, and tla
r nature gave way. lie was upon his deathin
r bed, and occasionally his mind wanderedl in
through feeblenessof body. Once it seemed
to the old man that lie had grown young w
again. He was surrounded with -every th
- adjunct of luxury. Damasks and silks, CO'
r costly woods inlaid with ivory, gilded mnir- en
rors and glorious paintings, golden vessels
and gleaming jewels were profutsely scat-pl
D tered around. All aseemred beautiful, but a I1
frown came upon the old man's face, for ie rel
still knew that he was dying. And as ht, the
pondered, it seemed to him that he saw his
9 Saviour expiring on a bare wooden cross. be
tA mortal }alenese overspread his features, CO
a and cold drops of.anguish stood upon !is th
r brow as he glanced again at the finery th
about him. " My God ! what do I want igi
a with all thist" he exclaimed, as he strug
e gled to a sitting postuire. Tte excitement, c
n however, had recalled his wandering senst-, an
r and he saw objects as they were. There
e was his weeping family simply clad and ta
i his unpretending apartment plainly fur- wi
nished. A smile of satisfaction lighted up at
his face, and sinking back upon the couch,
s he was dead. But the smile was still 'e
e there. It
NM o doubt there are many whio to some
s, extent make sacrifices 6f this kind and who
i could not rest if they thought a fellow el

M every costly luxury and useless vanity. Y
But there are many others who cannot see a'
re matters in this light at present, and never
will, perhaps, until a Ifttle of the light of
