Overcoats are in demand, and umbrellas, like newspaper, are "going ofif rapidly borrowed never to be re turned.' Some of our treed are like the gulf ' impassible, and wo to the pedestrian who at j tempts to navigate the mud; if he makes his tray- serosa' by superhuman exertions,' he "iiever returns that way again. A side-walk, here and there, contrary to the statute in that case made and provided, is neither grav. lled nor paved with brick or flag-stone, and as one sees the pretty little foot of a lady, 'cased in a aeat , slipper, absut to step' down kite a mud-hele of undiscovered depth, his heart like that of the polite and honest Hi bernian, yearns te take her in his arms, and 'carry her to a place of safety;' and then should she wish to return thanks .for the 'kiadness,tbat"beautiful look from those beau tiful eyes" would be all the pay demanded. Somebody we don't know who, and the name .is of no consequence,' once asked one of those bright young lads who delight in laugh ing at other's infirmities, whether the road beyond bad any bottom. Of course, a first 'rate one, replied the youngster. When the unhappy , traveller, a few moments after wards, found his horse's head alone 'peepiug above the mud and himself gradually sinking beneath the suface, heuaedbis lungs instead of his cane, for he could do no butter, in cas tigating the youngster, and said, "I thought -you said this rosdhad a good bottom." "So it has," replied the torturiiig urchin, "but "you hain't come to it yet." What become ,of the submerged traveller, history does not iuformui. . It is hardly necessary to inform our reader, that Christmas is close at hand. The little boys and girls know that, and what pleasant .dreams of Old Kriss, of candies and toys and ' cakes and dolls, the happy youngster now enjoy! If we didn't get a taste of "double " distilled" or a plug of tobaccs fur a lialf-cen-.tury.'we weuld not deprive ourselves of a loak at those cheerfal face and laughing eyes or miss thatmeiry laugh on Christmas day, as the gifts of the kiad old gentleman are displayed in rich confueion upon carpets , and in -wiodjw., by the happy care and in dustry of his happy recipient. Innocent ' chiMhsoil, blissful In its imiocenst, is happy all the lime, where health and the loving looks and kind care of fond parent ar a taund it, but no happier time fur them than whea Old Kriss comes In te see how much sad how good they havo grown' since his last annual visit and te repeat his acts of disinterested bsnevolcnce by distributing ameng them that with which their young hearts are delighted. DiJ you ever hear that merry laugh ringing in your ear, fath er, and did it not make you a happier, if not ! wiser man! , Oh! there is a sermon in hap py childhood, (spring of living water gush ing from that beautiful fountain of innocense, the foreshadowing of happier days, when the worlds contact shall not wither that heart, once so green, nor render it cold and callous and calculating. The time shall come, so we aretold'by prophesy that, never yet ,'hai failed; but shall not this generation help to speed its coming! ' ' I But the scene is changed. To some young hearts tbeir is no happiness.'' To them there conies no Kriss even to brighten ono day in :fte year To the mother it is not even a day of rest. , It is toil for her, all the time and while she sits over her work, her tears ' start to hec eyes to hear her children wonder why no Kriss comes to visit them. . The lit ' tie one know not that she is wearing her life away, in'toiling late and early for their support, while an improvident and unthink- ' ing father is squandering all his earnings ,. and sometimes even mors in dissipation and idleness, or perhaps has gone down into the "'grave leaving nothing behind but blows and tears to bear in , remembrance. It is a sad . thought, bat sadder scenes than oven this ' have happened ere now. - Reader, you may ' not bring' happiness back to that home, for "' sorrow has loft its indelible footprints there; but you can alleviate the sufferings of the unhappy by giving what you will not m'ss " put of a bountiful store provided for you by the God ofatt.

The caloric engine of Ericsson, which has been placed on board the steamer Ericsson, at Williamsburg, N.: Y., has created much interest among mechanics, for the attempts made herotoforo to propel machinery with hot uir, instead of stenm, have proved utter failures. In 1827 two brothers named Stirling, in Glasgow, invented a hot air en gine nearly similar to Ericsson's. ' This en gine communicated motion to a piston by alternately healing a portion of uir on one side of the piston, und cooling it on the oth er by means of air-vessels, one communica ting above and below the piston. "The dif ference in the Ericsson engine is, that the heated air is saved, and applied over again, which, it is alleged, will make it more- eco- n.imi.ul.
