The Year 1080 Stops Out Yliilo tlio Ywr 1080 Stops In. Tho Season Degun With Merriment, Feasting and Dancing In San Antonio, heofd jearnriS'O, which has brought many blesslngsnnd iuhii) sorrows, closed tilght before last. Thedtlngyeiirpasaetl peiu ernlly nway, the blinking lints In n clear heaven looking on, ns the lleeord Ing Angel turned n new leal In the Hook of l ime. Many households hailed the pasting nwny of the old year ns Iho farenell of n dear friend whom they were never to sec more, nnd the solemnity of the oecn Ion was registered In their ml nils with n 'ecllng of grand nwe, which Is felt liy nil mortals, as viewing the slow but sure passage of Time Into Kternlty.lbey real. Ize their positions ns but spetlnlnrs to the grand drama of the ages that Is be ing enacted beloro them. The moralist, In Ids wny, recalls a thousand memories, fruught many times with pangs of regret or with thrills of pleasure ot the many cveiiti of the pars ing year. The cynic views nil lime alike, neither knowing or caring what Importance the passing events may have his destiny. Hie pntrlnnh, full of rs, of honors and of knowledge n hlch none but Father Time can give, sees Hie lleellug yenr wlih resigned sorrow, and halls the coming of the new year with n grateful surprl.e that yet he Is living, l.lfe Is sweet lo all, and to none more than the aged, whovlewthelr past years Willi n retrospective glance, as I lie weary traveler, resting for a moment on the brow ot thn summit he has just climbed, views thn valley beneath him in n 1 Its clianges and turuwa lilt ryes lo the lonely sunset which, as his goal, he lnustsurely reach Toyouth(loleauty, the passing ot tlio oiu year lias a happy itlgnlllcmice, as of the departure of n friend who has given them pleasure, and the upprnach of a new trleml coming to visit them for u lime, nnd of whom they expect to de rive more plensure than from the last. We hope they will not be disappointed. To the business mail the old year has been fraught with but little pleasure If not actual disaster. 1'olltlcs and the change in our national administration Is no doubt the leading laetor In this, The man of business looks with hopeful doubt upon the new year nnd re9oles to treat it ns inentuy ns it win treat mm. lluslness will revive, says he, theconll denceof the public, both foreign and domestic, will be reinstated, mid the wheels of commerce will turn with the regularity which Is alwnys prolltnble to the miller. The politician halls with u nervous stest the opening of the new year. This ts an election year, and his rise or fall uiay depend upon It. He fawns upon bis friends, gambols among his acquain tances and seeks fresh conquests for votes, that may place him by ibeir com bined good will, In the national toruni, the stale arena, or I lie county or cut treadmill. San Antonio, the hlstorlu Aluino illy, nddsone year lo the eaired memory ill which she holds her martyred Milam, Crockett nnd their comrades, .ml then treads peacefully on, with a firm, un faltering step, with herstock Interests, her wool product, her growing manufac turing and railroad enterprises nnd hir business Industry. The vivid drama of the year has atlect' d her and caused vary, jug tides of applnute or silence lo shake her peaceful bosom, Many other oldest and tuost honored sous nnd daughters have crossed to the Great lle yond, tried nnd true, to be replaced by her younger sons, yet unskilled In the march marked out for them by their predecessors, yet the closing year waa appropriately bidden farewell by all with regret, and tbo new year hailed with n welcome none the less, hearty be cause it bad not been tested. 1'lensure parlies assembled everywhere, nnd scarce none were found by their fire side at the grand crisis, midnight.
