The happy, joyful day, the gladdest
the . ear—the d iy of precious family
•anions, of merry social festivities, of
USD.ring church services—will soon be
The anniversary of the Saviour's ad
vent into the world should rightfullj
be the happiest, as it is the most signif
icant, day of the entire year. It is the
day above all others when the heart
should lift itself above the common
cares, perplexities and sorrows of this
life, in food hope and stiong faith, real
izing that our dear Father in heaven
caieth for us, if we trust in Him, and
that He wiii lead us guitly down life's
"ourney to the end, and finally, for His
OMI dear Son's sake,whose glorious na
i d day we celebrate, take us to our e
i o :;al '.loui** above.
Parents should strive to make this
i veutful season of permanent, lasting
benefit to their families. Not only
should every member of the home cir
cle be kindly remembered with appro*
priate presents—for these are outward
likens of inward affection and love—
but the higher and more important les
sons of the occasion, the historic orig
in and glorious signification of Christ
mas should be taught and impressed.
People who spend the sacred, holy day
ioleiy in feasting and mirth, have but
low conception of its grand design,
and will. j>y none of its ennobling iu
ieuces, iu hallowed associations, reap
i .ie of its higher benefits. To such
t ie "good ti lings of great joy" does
lot come. The angelic message,"Peace
el earth good, will to men,"has no true
neaning to them.
Christmas should be made preemi
nently the occasion of active charity to
destitute and suffering. who,
-unrounded with every comfort and lux
ury the heart can desire, forgets or ig
n >ies the claims of the pooi, the wki
.v and the orphan around him,but lit
t'e und -stand* the obj ct and scope of
jf .oe b'essed gospel of that Savour who
v. is born ui.to us "this day." If we
-ivv ro those only.from whom we ex
pect to receive again, what reward
hav vve ? It is o:m of the plainest and
most imperative of christian duties to
seek out the neglected and degraded,
those who have little sunshine but
mueh darkness in their life's journey—
and there are such in every community
—and minister to their modest but
pressing wants. llow many sad hearts
cotud be made happy, how many hum
ble homes made cheerful, how manv er
ring and wandering ones reclaimed for
virtue, if the professed followers of
Him who sarri lined Himself for all,
would be more vigilent and active in
lee Is of charity and errands of mercy
It behooves us as a ehristaiu people,
;s each succeeding Christmas comes
ad to grow and improve in those
traces which alone make life worth

If C mtioller Pattison were hermeti
cally sealed in a firo-proof safe aud the,

Delaware, it is the opinion of his chief
deck, Mr. Hirst, that several hundred
of the thousand or more otllee-seekers
would shortly penetrate his hiding-place
and drown him in a flood of petitions
for appointments. As a matter of fact,
the Controller's olliee has been in a
state of siege for a month past. Mr.
Ilirst is in command of the outposts,
while Secretary Everett guards the in
ner fortress. The beleaguering party
are a dauntless set. They lie ia wait
in the dirk corridors, lurk in the nar
row passages and storm up the broad
stairs leading to the Governor-elect's a
partments, only to be routed but not
dismayed. They are a determined band
of anxious men, a gallant crew of give
