Friday. roc.l. 1877,
Iu Ml christianized countries, the anni
versary cf the birth of Christ is observed us
a holiday. In ellflerent nations there are
different custom", hut one anil Ml cclebrati
the twentyfifth of December ns the iloy
when the world was redeemed by the coming
of a Saviour, When the Wise Men of the
Kftt heard of tbo fulfilment of the piopho
clex In the birth of Median, they journeyed
to the place where tlin new-born King lay,
and worshipped 11 im, offering gifts of gold
frankincense and myrrh. The custom of
giving Christmas presents probably nroso
from this presentation to the Divine child,
Many people look upon this festival simply
as n time when gifts are to be exchanged,
and tUeir children vish for Its approach iu
anticipation of the toys ami good things
which Santa Claus will put in their stock
Ings, It is truly pleasant to glvo and to re
ceive, but in the mere giving of gifts we
should not lose sight of the lessons that are
taught by the observance of tills seaon.
The festival, and all connected with it,
Is symbolical, The day itself reminds us of
the promises of Salvation in the birth of u
saviour' who is Christ, the Lord; the gifts
recall the adoration of and premutation to
the child God j the Christmas tree of ever
green is symbolical of immortality.
Christmas is the happiest day of the year
for the children. When they retire on the
evening of the 21th, "visions of suga1, plums
dance in their heads." Many n little one
struggles with the "Sand-man" to keep
awake long enough to hear the prancing of
the reindeers on the roof, and to hear old
Santa Claus come tumbling down the chinv
ney with his load of toys and candies. Many
a tear is dried during the year by the threat
that the little fat Saint rewards only good
boys and girls, and not those who cry. The
legend of this kindly old man is a pleasant
hallucination, and children ought not to be
undeceived until too large to enjoy tbo belief
While the wealthy aro making merry and
exchanging costly gifts, there are many in
our midst who not only lack the luxuries of
the season, but who are actually in want for
the necessaries of life. While your table
groans with the fat of the laud, do not for'
get the poor.
In conclusion, we wish our readers one
and all, a Merry Christmas, and a Happy
New 1 ear.
At our December Court, the pitiable spec
tacle was presented of three colored children
arraigned in a criminal court on charges of
the gravest nature. The poor fellows, with
ntelhgencca scarcely above that of brutes
riendless, and whoso rags did not cover their
nakedness; wero convicted. A merciful court
sent the eldest to tho House pf Refuge whero
he will receive proper moral education, and
wholesome food and raiment. The other two,
after receiving proper admonitions wero re
leased. We believe there is no town in the
State which has so largo a religious clement
as Bloomsburg in proportion to population
so many churches and, church-goers and so
strict an adherence to the Sunday laws. Our
people aro also liberal according to their
means. There Is no estimating tho number
of flannel shirts and bibles they have scut
to heathen lands. But it is anomalous tfi'at
in such a community colored waifs such as
these must beg for food, and go almost naked
at this season of the year. Hut, wo are asked
why do not the Poor Directors take charge of
them? Simply becauso they must have a
proper order for relief and that has not been
applied for. But placing them in the Poor
House does not lessen tho evil. They are
too young to work there, and no one would
take caro of their mental and moral training.
On tho contrary they would bo subjected to
tho worst kind of companionship, aud be
come speedy adepts in sloth and crime.
It should bo remembered that these
children, who are now begging for food from
door to door aro being educated to a life tlia'
must eventually result in idleness and crime j
and that it is easier iu sucli to mould a soul
to good purposes and thoughts, than to reform
them years henco by punishment after they
havo become hardened. Society wonders at
crime, but it is far easier to remove the cause
than to apply the remedy after habits have
become a second nature. Tlieso boys can be
trained to become good and useful men, and
die as Christians. At present they are being
educated to crimo and iu beggary, and there
are so many "higher toned'1 souls to look af
ter that tho.-o aro neglected.
By all means aid the worthy poor j by all
means punish conscious guilt; but by all
means prevent both if prevention lie possi
ble. There is missionary work in Blooms
burg, and souls areas valuable here as they
aro in the interior of Africa.
Editors Sentenced.
M. P. Woeidward and M. F. Dorin.editors
of the Sunday AVit, published at Wilkes
Barre.who were convicted of libel upon Geo.
B. Kulp and Sheriff Kirkendall, have
been sentenced by Judge Handley to ten
months' Imprisonment nnd a fine of 700 in
each case. Their application for a new trial
was denied.
The sentence seems severe, but is not too
much if there has been Kulp-able guilt.
From 18.10 to 1871 215,000,000 acres of
public lands were granted by Cougress to

There is pcrhnps no subject upon which
the great public Is less Informed than how
to tiso tlio United States malls. Postmasters
aro dally obliged to reply to Inquiries In
person and by mall corcemlng the proper
mode of sending various kinds of matter
through tho Post Ottice. It may be about a
letter or package, concerning money or mer
chandise, or relate to postal changes or rut'
Ings, The following departmental decisions
were mado In answer to Inquiries by Post
master?, but the information is also useful
to tho public:
1. Parties addressed have the option to

OlHee, or the hands of n letter Carrier If,
for any cause, they do not see fit to accept
them. '
2. A Postmaster Is not obliged tn accept
n payment of package any currency which
may be so mutilated as to be uncurrent.
II. A business card may bo printed or im

1. A mail carrier should not receive mail
matter unless he is one mile or moro from a
Post Office, nnd when recolved such matter
should bo delivered Into the next Post Office
at which ho nrrives. This rule does not re
fer to mall matter properly enclosed In Gov

Anything other than an address written

which contains tho words, "Write the ad

renders the same uumnilable as n Postal

7, To paste or nttach anything to or up

8. Manuscript passing between (cither
way) authors and publishers of books in the

each ounce or fraction thereof.
9. "Drawings" mado with pen, pencil or

10. Music manuscript and proof sheets of

11. Manuscript letters transmitted by mail
are subject to postage of three cents for each

unsealed envelopes.
12. Unpaid letters containing orders for
goods cannot be lawfully carried by the mail
carriers outside the malls.
13. Specimens of penmanship enclosed
with printed ma'ter cannot be mailed in the
same package without subjecting the whole
to postage at letter rates.
A Curious Clerical Case.
In this country, as well as in England,
many religious persons, decidedly against the
ubj of wine, spirits, or other strong liquors,
indulgence in whicli causes inebriation, con
tend that the wine which is administered in
the communion service ought to bo simply
tho unfermentcd juico of tho grape. Dr.
Wordsworth, the learned and somewhat
crotchety divine who was mado Bishop of
Lincoln )in England) iu 1809, lately prohibi
ted a clergyman in his diocese from adminis
tering unfermentcd wine at the altar. In
consequence, a case was laid before Dr. Ste
phens, anlecclesiastical lawyer of high re
pute asking him to give a professional opin
ion upon tho point whether any law or can
on of tho Protestant Episcopal Church in
England prescribes the cemmumon to be ad
ministered in the fermented juice of tho grape;
if such use of unfermentcd wine is a breach
of the law of the Church; if a bishop has the
power to prevent a clergyman in his diocese
from so using it j and what penalty a clergy
man would incur for disregarding such prohi
bition? Dr. Stephens reply is direct and
plain. It points out that there is no defini
tion of tho wine in tho Prayer Book, as there
is of tho bread (which tho Knbio says, must
'be the best and purest wiioat bread that con
veniently uny bo gotten"); that, though it
may bi taken for granted that the juico of
the grapo is meant, there is nothing to show
that it ought to be fermented; that, by ref
erence to authorities, it appears that the pure
juico ol ttie grape was olten usd by tho
Jews in Christ's tiiuo; that the canon orders
that wino shall be used, but the mcaniog of
tho term ''wine" his never been decided sci
entifically. Therefore, unless tho legal courts
should rule that wino means the fermented
juice of the grape, no British bishop has pow
er to forbid tho puro juico of the grape. Th0
Knghsh temperance societies aro resolved to
obtain a judicial decision on this curious
point. Presa.
.National Debts. .
What country has the largest national
It ? At the latest date for which statistics
are now in hand, Great Britain had. That
was in March, 1875, when the debt of
that country was $3,870,000,000, reckoning
the pound sterling at five dollars. In the
preceding January the debt of France, ac
cording to the Statesman's. Year Book for
1877, was $3,750,337,129, counting five francs
to the dollar. This debt was then the sec
ond in magnitude. Some writers have stated
tti6 French debt to be as much as $4,500,000,-
000. Probably the true amount is some
what above that first given, as In 1875,
France must have had a good deal of floating
aud temporary Indebtedness that had not at
the time been converted into rentes, and the
Statesman's Year Beok gives only the capi
tal of the rentes. But those who put the
French debt at $-1,500,000,000 must Include
municipal aud oilier local lndebtedness,much
of which was incurred for war purposes dur
ing the late conllict with Germany. There
is probably not much difference between the
debts of Frauce and Great Britain at the
present moment.
Tho indebtedness of tho Church of tie
Holy Trimly, New York, is $230,000. Last
Suudsy Edward Kimball tho church debt
raiser, got subscriptions to tho ainouut of
$145,000, tho largest sum ever subscribed at
ono timo to pay a church debt.

Wasuis'itox, D. 0., Dec. 17, 1877.
It seems there was real danger on Saturday
morning, of a duel between Senators Gor
dan and Conkllng. Hut friends interfered
and the trouble Is not only settled, but the
settlement made matter of record In tho
Senate, Senators Ransom and llamfin weru
the active parties in bringing about the do
sirablo result.
flier all the House passed tho deficiency
with additional sums, amounting to more
than n million, added by tho Senate.
Senator Matthew's silver resolutions go
over until after the Holiday recess. Tho
personal and political unpopularity of Sen
ator M. had much to do with this.
lly refusing to vote, and thus leaving tho
House without a quorum, the Republicans
on Friday and Saturday succeeded iu pre
venting, for tho present certain investiga
tions desired by tho Democrats.
Senator Uiitlcr of Soutli Carolina, just
prior to adjournment on Saturday, presented
a resolution requliing the proper conimltteo
to Investigate the means by which the votes
of Senator Patterson and Conovcr wero so
cured In favor of his' ((Sutler's) admission.
This of course, is because Senator Kdmunds,
when the question of admission was up,made
charges of corruption.
I have never had any great confidence in
the sincerity of Secretary Schurz's efforts to
reform the chll service, ile has not appear
ed to go about it as if ho was in earnest. He
has been secret and sly in Ids investigations.
For months he hss refused to act on charges
nf fraud after they were 'investigated. He
has just dono one thing, howiver which
shows that he means to be the head of his
Department. Ho has Issued an order to pre
vent lobbying before Congress by chiefs of
i, i i .- .
lvureaus uuuer mm.
This nuisance had become intolerable,
One of his chiefs has spent much of his
time of late in attempting to securo such
legislation as suited him in relation to his
Unreaii. Clearly if Mr. Schurz is to be re
sponsible for the conduct of his Department
recommendations for legislation regarding it
should come from him.
