f -.iyAtioilior return of Christmas Is near at bund,
au.1 with it will conic, we siipio, tlie pleasures
nnil i:iin, fim nnd fo'.lici, noise and nonsense, nsu
Hlly attendant upon that anniversary. Christmas,
regarded as it should e, would be celebrated as our
most solemn liolyduy. It was njKin this day that n
Savior was liorn unto the world one whose merit
ml suffering was to appeal the displeasure of nn
offended 01, and wliose voluntary sacrificial offer
ing of Himself brought salvation to man. Ami
yet, how few regard the day in this light ! True
A showing of mien. observance of the day is main
tained by few, but the, mass of tho people, seem to
think its ino-t iirojier celebration con'-lsfs iti intcm
pnrato Indulgence la our carnal Hepatites id eating
mid drinking, mid making nay and night hideous
with strange noises. We do not wish at ull to be
tindcrstood as opposing a rational enjoyment of this
day, by reasonable indulgence in the festivities in
cident to it, but wo do wish to advocate sncli rea
sonable indulgence only. Let all disgraceful bnch
iiualian orgies and reveling be alioli.-hed, as un
worthy alike of the day and our character; and let
sensible, genteel pleaures and amusements take
tliuir place. This much for our worldly enjoynientof
Christmas. (If course nliove these are the duties
wo owe, as a chri.tian people, on til's day. The
lir-d and highest obligations upon us, with regard
toil, are to evinco our gratitude to the JVImighty
for the merciful gift to fallen man that this day
Much are some of the duties nnd obligations that
are suggested to us by the approach of Christmas:
if our utterance of them shall awaken any good,
or tend to the suppression of any evil and intempe
rate impulses in the heart of any, our end will be
Ccru On aieiunt of the general holiday, at Christ
mas, we shall issue no piper next week. Printers,
of all other people in the world, ought to bo permit
ted to enjoy a holiday, once in 11 while. Their la
bor is aJnuiot incessant, nnd they can enjoy but lit
tle of the pleasures of the outside world, or of associ
ation with their fellow-men. The four walls of the
pi ijitiDg-oflice generally bound their movements,
and the click, click, of the types alone breaks the
stillness around him. Communing with his own
thoughts, or with his mind absorbed in meditation
uii tlis brain-product of others, he laboil on in
cilence, knowing but little of the busy turmoil out
doors. Thus the printer lubors, from week to week, and
fro'ii year to year, all for the enjoyment of others,
nud when, oncc-n-ycar, Christinas comes, iill'ordlng
him a little recreation, nnd nut-duor pleasure, mean
must be the heart of him who would grudge him
Next week, then, we audotir co-laborers iion the

any of our frivnds know of a nice party, or A wel
