It was ji movable feat, often confounded villi
tho lCpiphany, nnd cilobralcil by tlio Untorn
churches in April and May. In the fourth cen
tury St. Cyril, of Jerusalem, obtained from l'opo
JnlliHl.nn order for an Inrisllgitloii to be
madacnnoernlng theday of ChrUl'n nativity. Tlio
result of this Inquiry was mi agreement on the
lGlli of December. Thero was no iijsitlvo proof
of this being the correct dale, but It was uni
formly accepted, and has ever ilnco been a fixed
festival In the church. The eiitom of ringing
Cimllcles at Christmas, called carols which rp.
called the songi of the shcphcrils at the birth of
uiri-t, dates from the tlmo when the common
p 'oplu ceaed to understand1 Iilln. The Ilih-
ops and lower clergy often joined wilh the pop
ulace in carolling, mid the fongs wero enliv
ened with dances nnd muic. During die lat
'lays before Christmas it is Mill the custom for
C.ihibrian inliiMrcls to ilcfcenil from the inoun
t'lins to Naples nnd lloiuc, saluting the shrinos
of the Virgin Mother with their wild muic un-
ler tho poetical notion of chieriiig her until the
lurth lime of her Infant. Preparatory to Clirl

Kngland and the continent, Anionic the revels
of tins season were tho so-callid feasts of fools,
in which every thing serious was burlesmud
In (icrnritiy Christmas is often called the "chil
lien's hvtlval," and it is from there that we lie
rive our custom of giving preseni", and the
Cnstmai tier, though the remote origin of gill
m iking undoubtedly aroo from the fact that the
wise men of the cast brought gills lo the infant
Saviour. That fat old gentleman whom the
children think of with so much ibdiglit, St.Nlcl;
ones, originated in Uerminy. The presents
made by all llio parents to their children weru
sent to sonio one person, who, in high lmkih,

Christmas has alwavs been a iol!giou,domcs
Ho nnd merry-making fe-tiv.il. In Kngland the
revels used to begin on Christmas cvp, and lasted
often until Candlemas, Feb. 'J, In the hoii-es oi
die nobles "a lord of mi-iule was appointed,
whose ollici- was "to make the i.irest pastimes.

The common cu-tom of decking the houses
mid churches with eveigreei s is derived from
nncidit droid piacdces. It was an old belief
lint sylvan spirits might flock to the- evergreens
and remain unnipped by fro-t till a milder sea
son. In iliis country, since the puritans were at
first stern opponents of Christmas pastimes, the
day has been generally less celebrated in New
Kngland than in theMiddleand Southern states.
There are many singular superstitions regarding
Christmas in some countries. Formerly in Fug
laud it was said that on Christmas eve the oxen
were always found on their knees, as lit an atti
tude of devotion. This was derived from the
pievalent mediicval notion that an ox and an
as which were present at the nativity fell upon
their knees in a suppliant manner. It was an
ancient tradition, alluded to by Shnkespeaie
tiiat midnight spirits forsake the earth and go
to their own confines at the cro-.ving of the cock,

And then they say no spirit stlr.s abroad;
'I lie nlght.1 aro wholesome; then do p anet strikes
No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm,
Ni hallow ed and so gracious Is the time.
Of course all these superstitions exist in Chris
tian countries only as traditions. In Kngland
the Christmas celebrations have lost their prim
itive boisterous character, and, as in this conn
try, family reunion", making pre-ents, and ever
green tiimmiugs aro nearly nil that remain of
die rough uiertimcnts that once marked the fes
tival. The celebration of the- birth of Chri-t is
becoming more and more universal in the Unit
ed States, and the day is probably not far distant

Tho Heiubtican has never been ills
tliigutslicd for literary chyniicc, but tlio
ciulo'isly Involved and IntrK-ali! construction
of the article in last wcejt's paper, relative
to tlio trial of Samuel Hogart, merits special
mention, llegiiiiilug with tlio undcnlablo
statement that "Klluo was the father-In-law
of Hogart" tlio writer adds "this niarrlago
proved to bo an unhappy one." It is hardly
to be wondered at that a niarrlago between n
man and li Is fatlier-in-law should bavo been
unhappy, but the fact that such a monstrous
union could exist in a civilized community
will surprise most people. The writer goes
on i "For years quarrels liavo been kept up
between tho parties. Hogart and bis wlfo
would begin It" (what? rpiarrels?) and by
tho time it ended tho whoto of tho Kline,
family would bo involved." The reader will
notice tlio hopeless confusion of singulars
nnd plurals in tho above,and tho samo thing
occurs In tho next sentoiicoj "Frequent
separations between him and his wlfo wero
the result " Oh I it were, were it? Heaiitl
fid Indeed I "So if continued for years until
on tho "tli of September last it culminated
in tho death of Mr. Kline." What was it
that "continued for years" and "culminated
in tlio death of Jlr. Kline?" Does tlio
writer mean that tho "separations" "con
tinued" and "culminated ?" If so why does
be say "it" and how could tho "separations"
of man and nlfo "culminated" In tliedeiithof
a f.ither-iu-hiw ? Wo should have thought
that "meetings" wero morn likely to have
brought about so s.id a result than "scparit'
Here is another fine- specimen: "Hogart
took a pitch fork and rushed upon tho old
man and plunged it into Ids skull from the
elFects of which he died " This is the first
easo we ever knew where a man died from
tho "cITeets" of a skull. Jlost people have
skulls and manage to live with them but
whether the skulls liavo "cllc-cls" or not we
aro unable to say. It may kill a man every
time to have "effects" of the skull. Again ;
''.Mr. Htickalow made one of the bc-t efforts
of his life in his defence." What Mr. lluck
alew had done, and how bad it was, we can
not tell but we are pleased to know that he
acquitted himself so well. Pronouns and
prepodtlonsjSingul irsaiid plurals give much
trouble to the IUpublirnn'e writer.
.More richness : "llio charge of Judge
Klwell was an able discussion of the

meaning of that phrase. Judge Kln-ell said
"I shall not repeat the evidence upon the

in fact reler to the evidence only to explain
thu law bearing upon the points in question
Judge Klwell will probably be pleased to
know that he was impartial, and did not
thirst for Ilogart's blood. Here is a bit of
lino writing!; "a solemn silence pervaded the
mid-night audience as the foreman James
Dyke,bauded the verdict to the Clerk of the
Court, wlio pas-ed it to the Judge. After
he examined it ho returned it to the Clerk"
&c. Nothing could have been more im
pressive than this, unless the Clerk had
handed tlio verdict to the Court-crier, who
had then given it to the Deputy Sheriff and
ho in turn lo tho Sheriff who might have
hande'd it to a tipstave to be by him pre
sented to the Judge. Xobody would im
