The songs by Cols. Critchlow and Eber

pleasing and interesting features in the
programme of the evening. The alternate
bursts of applause and flowing ot tears
which those songs called forth so sponta

proof of their touching effect and pathetic
The many good jokes, too, which so
“set the table in a roar,” recalled to
mind not a few of the incidents of the

there was not “any more of that” around

Christmas in First Presbyterian
Church of BHdgetoatcr.~ T thc good
people -of this church completely sur
prised their ' pastor,; TSe?*OamesM.
Shields, on Christmas eve, by placing in
his parlor a very handsome and valuable
parlor .set, He hardly knows which to
admire most, the liberality of the peopje
in furnishing the money, .dr the , gdod
taste of the committee to en
trusted the selection and purchase of the
articles. ■ ,- ...V ••■.■Tu *
For this token of confidence and affec
tion, ; tbe
thanks of their pastor and bis family, with
their prayer that God will return unto
their bosoms a .hundred fold of,the bles
sings of bis providence and grace;
On Christmas evening the; Sabbath
School met to enjoy from the congregation
their annual festivities. About two hun
dred members of the school were present,
and with the parents and friends of the
scholars, made, a full house.
The choir, under the direction of Col
O. R Coe, assisted the school in giving
the audience choice and appropriate mu-,
sic during the evening. '
“Christmas Pictures” was splendidly
rendered by Mr. Henry Hum.
-In a neat and happy alddress Mr. Hark
ford P. Brown presented Mr. Evan Jack
son with a handsome gentleman’s wrap
per, the gift of some friends, in considera
tion of valuable services rendered by him
as librarian.
The pastor in behalf of some of the
classes presented their teachers with to
kens of their affection for them, and ap
preciation of their services.
The meeting was one of the most pleas
ant ever held in the church, all feeling as
they retired to their homes that it was
good to be there.
The church is justly proud of the school.
Few communion seasons have passed
without one or more of its number con
fessing Christ before the world by unit
ing with the church. ■
During 1873 one hundred and twenty
six dollars have been contributed by the
school, thirty dollars were unanimously
given to help purchase Woodstock a
school for the education of the children
of our mission in India. Six dollars to the
Orphan’s home (now Infant. School) in
Rochester, and the remaining ninety dok
lars to the education of boys in Rev. C.
W. Mateer’s school in China.
Besides this there are two or three
mission circles' composed of one or more
classes working under the direction of the
Ladies’ Foreign Mission Society. To ev
ery Church or Sabbath School Jesus
Christ says: “Go ye into all the world
and preach my gospel to every creature.”
On Saturday morning before daylight,
a son of Mrs. Moore, widow of the late
John L.. Moore, of Hanover township, of
this county, with tt-gen4leman whose
name we did not learn, undertook to
drive a team across the Ohio river, on the
ice at Rogers’ Ferry, but having
been partly covered up by the drifting
snow, they missed the way and drove the
horses into an air bole. The men sue
ceeded in getting the drowning horses
loose from the sleigh, bnt could not save
them. No other loss occurred.
An uncle of Mr. Moore was lying dan
gerously ill, and the young man and his
companion bad started to go after some
relatives who resided on this side of the
river, and being in a burry ventured to
cross without a guide and in the darkness
of the night. The result is a warning
which others no doubt will heed.
Heavier College, —The winter term
of this flourishing institution, whose pu
pils have been enjoying a vacation during
the holidays, will open Monday, the 6th

be in attendance on that day. Classes
will be formed in the common branches,

The Shortest Day,— Saturday, De
cember the 31st, was the shortest day of
the year. The sun rose at 7:15 and set at
4:33, the event markingthe beginning of
winter solistice when the days begirt to
diminish in length. The sun will stop
receding from the equator and begin its
approach to that line, which it will reach
on the 21st of March, when the days and,
nights will be of equal duration. The
seasons depend upon the motion, or rather
apparent motion of the sun. Each season
is ninety-one days, when the sun is
farthest from us and nearest to the tropic
of Capricorn, in the southern hemisphere.
The sun is vertical over the tropic of
Capricorn on the 21st of December. It
is never vertical further south than that,
and on that day its latitude at meridian
is lower in the northern hemisphere
than any other part of the year. There
is an old maxim that M when the days
begin to lengthen-the cold begins to
We are in formed that Rev. Taylorbas
made arrangements to take the boys of'
the Orphan School, at PhilMpsburg, to
Harrisburg, to be present at the inaugura
tion of Gov, Hartranft, on the 21st tost.
We hope the boys will have a pleasant
time.and keep their eyes open to see what
they will see. ?
The crowded houses which witnessed
the performances in Van port, last week,
on Thursday, Priday and Saturday even
ings, bore testimony t«> the excellency of
the entertainment, and we are glad to
know that $49 was realized for the bene
fit ol the Sabbath School.

Whereas, 1 It being an Incontrovertable feet,
that morality is the foundation stone of all good
governments, and especially of a form of Gov
ernment, which guarantees to the governed the
free exercise of the right of conscience, and guard*
edly and specially protects that right, and as
Temperance is one of the fundamental principles
of morality, we therefore bold that the people
should direct any and all movements tending to
wards altering or amending the organic structure
of that government, and that the constitutional
foundation principles of that government of right
should emanate from the people, inasmuch as
governments are instituted fqr the protedion of
the goverened: therefore
Resolved, That we solemnly request the atten
tion of the members of the Constitutional Con
vention now in session, to the absolute necessity
of inserting a clause in the constitution of tbo

uors except for medicinal or mechanical purposes,
and that we earnestly solicit the insertion of such
- Resolved , That this convention recommend and
earnestly enjoin upon every Good Templar es
pecially, and the Temperance commnnity gener
ally a vigilant and watchful surveillance ovei the
operations of the foes of temperance that may be
brought to bear, in any mode or manner to secure
the repeal of the act, commonly known as the
“Local Option Bill' 1 during tha present session of
onr State Legislature, and to use all laudable
means to thwart the same.
Resolved, That wc consider it the imperative
duty of each and every Good Templar, to nse
every exertion publicly and privately to secure a
large vote next March in favor of unconditional
prohibition throughout the county and State;
and while we deprecate any interference in the
operations and management of any of the "political
organizations of the day, we nevertheless regard
prohibition as the grand and only consideration
worthy the attention of Good Templars.
' Resolved , That this convention appoint two del
egates at large from each Lodge in the district, to
represent) our district in the State Temperance
alliance convention, to be held in Pittsburgh, Fa.’
on the 10th Inst.

Ed. Radical. —One of tbe most pleasing enter
tainments ever held in Freedom,- came off on
Christmas plght in the Presbyterian church, being
a ChristmaS'treat for the children of the Sabbath
School. At an early hoar the people began to ar
rive, and atffeix o'clock the ctmrch was fall to
overflowing. The pulpit of the church had been
removed and a platform erected extending to the
front seats, upon which was placed a beautiful
Christmas Tree, covered with presents of all kinds
for the children and oflicers of tbe school. On the
wall back of the tree was the. motto “Merry
Christmas To All,”in large letters covered with
The performance consisted of singing and tab
leaux, and was a perfect .success, especially the
pieces performed by the smaller scholars; one of
the most noticeable of which was a comic song by
the little girls, who were all dressed to represent
little old women. This piece was uproariously ap
plauded, and had to be repeated the ■ second
time. The singing was admirable throaghont,
and reflects great credit.upon Mrs. Mary B. Ben
tel, foil the able' manner in which she taught the
children their pieces, and heir management of the
affair throaghont. Before tho close the presents
were distributed among the scholars and teachers
of the school, after which a general treat of can
dies,. cakes and applet was given. The children
then sang a piece entitled “Good Night,” which
closed the exercises. May each succeeding Christ
mas find onr Sabbath School as prosperous, and bo
spent as happily, is the wish of ‘ Gideon.

A Great Oil Strike.— The largest oil well
ever obtained in this section, owned by McCreery
Bros, of Island Run, and located onJ. & F. Me-
Langhlin'e farm, Ohio township, about a mile
south-east of the celebrated Mason well, on the
fork of Dry Run, which empties into the Ohio at
Smith’s Ferry, was struck last Friday, tubed, and
partially exhausted on Saturday, flowed through
casing on Snnday in and hour or so, 10 barrels,when
the gas, which was abundant, taking fire, the
further testing of the well was suspended. We
are informed by 011 men ot good judgment that
the show and partial test indicate/ for Smith's
Perry region, that the well will be Irom 20 to 40
barrels, while others claim 100. The strike has
created unusual excitement frond tbe fact that it
