The Churchman in speaking of tlio
recent rcmarkablo religious movement
in tho Upiscopal churches of New York
"These gatherings havo refuted most
thoroughly the oft-repeated saying that
tho pulpit is losing, or has lost its in
fluence! Never perhaps was thero a
grander spectacle in all tho history of
preaching and preachers than tho up
turned faces, .intelligent, thoughtful
and self-possessed, of this vast assem
blage! men of all ages, swayed and
visibly affected by tho words of ono
of tlio simplest and plainest of preachers.
Theso gathering?, too, refute tho com
mon sayiug that religion has come to
bo of interest to women ouly, as this
immense building was positively packed
with men as eager to lay hold on tho
truths and the ptaco of Christianity as
they had been, a httlo before, to seek
tho surest information of tho markets.
It is not truo that men care nothing
for religion. They do caro for it,
Judge Baer, of tho Bedford-Somerset
district, thinks that entirely too many
peoplo affirm instead of swearing wheu
called on to civo testimony or make an
affidavit, and that a number of theso
adopt tho affirmation method because
they are not too sure they are going to
tell tho truth and do not wish to incur
tho moral cuilt of periury. Ho has
announced his intention .of making
ovcrv on taku the oath in cases before
him, unless ho is satisfied that tho de
ponent has conscientious scruples, anil
recently told a jury that they had no
right to stand up and affirm as a mero
matter of choice. There is a good deal
of force in Judge liaer's position
Every frequenter of tho courts must
havo noticed how largo is tue proportion
of witnesses who affirm and how often
it includes persons of so disreputable
an appearance and antecedents as to
make ridiculous the idea that they are
prevented from swearing by religious
soruples. That eotno of them imagine
an affirmation less binding than an oath
is quite probable, but it is not so in law.
It is often more important, however,
to consider the popular impression than
tho fact, and Judge Baer recognized
this when ho announced his determi
nation to make more peoplo swear.
The New Marriage Law.
S05IK OK ITS 1J5C0NVEN1ENCES.
Tho now marriago law
"If any of tho persons intending to
marry by virtue of said license shall
bo under twenty-ouo years of age, the
consent of their parents or guardians
shall bo personally given before said
deck or certified under the hand of
such pareut or guardian, attested to by
two adult. witnesses, and tho signature
of said parent or guardian, shall
bo properly acknowledged before a
notary public or other officer competent
under the law to receive acknowledge
ments.'' In tho case of two young persons I
know the bndo happened to bo a minor.
The father of tho bridegroom under
took to obtain for tho young couple
the necessary license and went to the
Orphan's court, where the law was ex
plained to him.
Ho followed strictly the instructions
given and obtained tho consent and
signature of tho mother of tho bride,
attested by two witnesses. Ho felt very
confident that he was fully equipped,
and under this impression, he again
appeared before the clerk of the Orph-
ana' court, who, to his astonishment,
told him that tho document was not
complete, that it lacked tho all-important
fact of being acknowledged before
a notary public.
In consequ'.'iice of tho sickness of the
mother of tho bride, who was the only
person qualified to give consent to the
marriago oi nor uauguier, an accoin
modatiug notary public had to be hunt
d up, who volunteered to go to the
mother's bedside to perfect tho raoinen
This accomplished, tho fathor of tho
tiriuegrouiu vvuimeu urn wuy u uiiiu
time to ttio Orphans court ana appear
ed before tho clerk, who satisfied with
tho document issued a license. Tho
document was hauded to tho applicant,
who, tired and disgusted with tho
wholo business, pocketed it without ex
amination. The appointed day and
hour arrived, when tlio two young peo
plo, full of hope, betook themselves,
with their friends, to tho clergyman's
residence, where tho good man had
ovcrythiug arranged for tho ceremony.
All weut joyfully until tho knot was
about to bo tied, when it was neces
Bary to utter tho names of tho brido
and bridegroom. Tho fathers chris
tian namo and tho sou's are different.
Tho father who is a marriod man,
beard with dismay his own namo and
not Hint of his sou uttered by tho
clergyman as tho porsnn about to bo
united to the bride. He ventured to in
terrupt the clergyman, calling his at
tention to thu fact that ho was using
his namo and not his son's.
Tho announcement wasquito a shook
to iho reverend gentleman, who Baid,
to tho great consternation and dis
appointment of tho young couplo and
friends, that under tho circumstances
he did not foel authorized to marry
them. It was subsequently proved, by
reference to the original documents in
tlio possession of tho clerk of tho orph
an's court, that nil this tribulation and
disappointment was cai-sed through
a mistake of tho official in copying
the name. Tho young couplo, how
ever, would not bo frustrated, for they
took tho first conveyance thoy could
get and crossed tho Delaware to Cam
don, where, beforo competent witness
es, thoy were, to thoir great joy, pro
nouoci'd man and wife by tho mayor
of that city.
Tho error was afterwards rectified
at the Orphan's court and a correct
license hauded to the 'clergyman, who

An Impending Contest.
The News from Washington for
shadows a contest between tho Presi
dent and the United States Senate as
unusual as it would bo important. In
tho course of his duty, tho President
has mado some removals lrom olhco on
tho ground of offensive partisanship.
It the gossip among certain .senators
is to bo taken as an index of coming
ovcuts, the Senate will k tlio i,xccu
tivo to define his understanding of tiio
offensivo partisanship that met with
his official deprecation. Io other words,
the Senate contemplates asking him to
communicate tho causes of removal in
Tho Constitution makes tho Senate
a factor in the power of appointment
to office in that it is authorized to "ad
vise and consult with'' tho Presideut in
his admitted function of appointing
certain public officials. But neither
that instrument nor any other autho
rity, wiilteu or olhenvise, gives the
Senato a voice in tho right of remov-
al. That is his peculiar prerogative
and has never been questioned
It is truo that during the administra
tion of President Johnson every Horl.
of embarrassment was thrown m the
way, but even during that period of
ultra partisanship and irrecouclaible
leadership tho step now contemplated
va9 not attempted.
If the Senate should undertake to
adopt such an unprecedented course
during tho present session, the obvious
duty of tho President is to absolutely
ignore it. Thero is no doubt that ho
bad good and sufficient reasons for
making the removals in ovcry case,
It is equally certain that thu numbe
of cases might have been multiplied
and ought to havo been. Iho oonat'
oan refuse to consent to tho appoint
mcnt of successors, but beyond that its
interference is impudent and imperii

i'ACKKtt AT LAST
Tho celebrated case of N. C. Harris,
President Of tho Athens National
lhtik, against tho Lehigh Vnlley Hail
road Company, has beep decided by
Judge 1. D. Morrow of Bradford Co.,
who has been at work for three weeks
upon the intricate and important cue.
This nttion has been, pending lor
vcats. nnd urew out of tho sale of tho
North Branch Canal to Asa Packer,
on Oct 23, 1803. In 18S1 tho case
is referred to tho Hon. Samuel l.iiiu
f Williairsporl, as master nnd ex-
ninlnor, who entered upon tho dls-
hargo of his duties in Apiu ut tnai
ear, nnd spent two jears in taking
testimony. It took three weeks for
tho counsel to sum up tho cape beforo
Mr. Linn after tho testimony was in.
About n ear nun a decision was
rendered by Mr. Lmn in favor or liar
lis fn 172,472.02 o.ih. From this
Iceman the liflnuh V'.lb-y niipi'Mi'ti,
ntid Judge Morrow has lovotwd the
finding of thu Mnsttr. Judge Mor
row ili'nrf pm that Lhu S'iil.l.OUD of stock
claimed by Harris to bo due liiin was
formnlly pledged by Charles T. Wcllc,
Jr., tho President of iho Noith B 'it nil
Janal, to tho Luhich Valley liaihoad
Company , and that therefore the de
fendant Is only liable ns a pledgee ana
not otherwise : that there is duo on
io pledge tho sum of 09,134.02, and
iat on tho payment by Harris of that
sum ho shall bo entitled to 4,700 shares
fthc common p'nek of the Penusyl
auia and New Vuik Canal Railroad
Harris has contended all tho time
that tho 238,000 for which ho sued
hould bu pari in him in cah. Judge
Morrow holds that it mnt ho in com
mon stock, and as above slated. If
Harris fails to pav the $00,434.02
within ninety da)?, then the 4,700
hares ot common stock aro to do sold
at auction. From the procerus !?0!,
435,02 arc to be paid tho Lehigh Vul-
ey Company nnd tho balance to Jiar
lie. Ab to' costs, which havo been
about 820,000, Judge Linn saddled
them on tho defendant, but Judge
Monow divides them equally between
Harris nnd tho Lehigh Valley com
pany. This makes a great victory for
Mr, Eandall's Presidential Successioa BilL
Mr. Randall has prepared a bill for
filling vacanciis in lhu offices of Pres

Washington. D. C, Dec. 22, 1885.
Preparations for the Holiday occupy
the attention of almost overybody in
Washington. Congress is taking a re
cess, and society is lorgotten lor the
time, in anticipation of tho gatherings
around each hreside.
On the day after Christmas tho thir
ty days of mourning for tho late Vico
l'resident will expire, and tho black
draperies will bu remove-,! from all the
publio buildings. Tho gay season will
begin on Mew Years day and
lhu social forces of tho "Capital
aro well organized and equipped
for it. Tho winter is expected to be
an exceptionally gay one, even outside
of official circles. It cannot bo other
wise, since each year adds to tho num
ber of distinguished and hospitable
peoplo making their homes hero.
President Cleveland will inaugurate
a much needed reform at thu Whitu
House by making early hours fashion-
ablo. His levees are to begin at eight
instead of nine o'clock in tho evening,
as heretofore. Statu dinners aro to bo
served at Boven P. M., and Now Year's
day receptions aro to begin at, ten
o'clock in tho morning.nlthough elovon
would suit .most of those in official life
Ten o'clock was tho hour during tho
last demooratio administration, nucha
nan's, but Mrs. Lincoln fixed ono hour
later. Mr. Cleveland takes tho stand,
that as the dav is nn uniiBuallv busv
ono for both visitors and visited, it is
better to begin early.
Tho President devoted considerable
timo during tho week to signing his
names to lists of nominations which havo
been sent in now, nnd they number
about twelvo hundred. On going into
his ollico a fow mornings since and see-
ui mi uviiiunuuu ot papers on uisuesK,

I made all those appointments?

Tlio action of tlio Houso in revising

Friday morning the men employed in

About 10 o'clock a miner named Sibert
was employed in blasting coal in No. 1
Slope Kock chauuil, when a leailu
trash oecui ed. Tho roof of tho mine,
iust above the place where ho was
working, fell in by the force of tho ex
plosion, letting m through many crevic
es a gieat volume of water, which
carried with it a 1 irge amount of quick
sand. Thu men employed on tho work
ings" were terror-stricken, andas soon
as possible word was given to reach
tho mines. Tho men employed in
the gangways dropped their crow-bars
and picks and in n: instant dashed for
tho slopo or mam gangway which led
to tho surface.
FI.KBINO FltOM TUB FLOOD.
Tho water rushed after them, gain
ing steadily upon Ithem, and before
somo of tho men could reach tho bottom
of tho slope, preparatory to being
hoisted to tho surface, tho water had
gained upon them several feel, and it
was with iho greatest difficulty that
they reached a place of safety. In
some instances tho water was up to their
neck; when brought to tho surface
many of them fainted from exhaustion
Hut they were the Jortunato ones.
There were others who did not hear
the word of warning or the noiso of
me rumuung water in nmo ana iney
were cut oft from escape. 1 hey could
not mako their escape as tho others did,
because the water was as high as tho
roof. Tho way leading to tho man
way, another means ot escape, was
blocked by tho sand and this shut off
escape in that direction. Ilioroadio
tho air shaft was also closed, but heloro
this latter statu of aflairs was brought
about some of thu men, who were near
at hand, succeeded in reaching tho
mouth of tho air shaft in timo to be
brought to tho surface. Ihey wore
almost overcome, however. Tho only
way thoy sould bo rescued was to let a
ropo down to the men and this being
tied securely around their waists they
were hauled up.

After this shift of men had been
safely lauded it was found that twenty'
seven otheis wore still missing. in
other rcs'tuing party went down tho
air shaft, but returned quickly with the
intormation that tho passageway was
blocked and that tho men were hem
med in. The only thing now to do
was to tro and din tlio men out. Th
officials of tho raiiio at once summouud
their most experienced men nnd put
them to work. A temporary derrick
was erected over tho fanhouse, and
with tho aid of pinks, shovels, crow
bars and timbeis were let down to th
bottom. After woiking for an hour
tho first "shift" came out and were suc
ceeded by fresh men. Thoso who had
been working below when they return

head to foot with mud and quicksand

tho month of April or May, others in
jjmury. it is nevertheless certain
that the 2,1th of December cannot
bo lhu anniversary of tho bitth of
Jhnst, for it is then tho height of lhu
rainy euason in Judca, and "shepherds
could hardly bo watching their flocks
by night in tho plains. Thu custom
of Celebrating thu Nativity on tho 2.1th
of December wu derive from the heath
en, who regur ded tho winter solstice
is a most impotlanl point ot tho year,
as the beginning of thu renewed lilt
and activity of thu powers of nature
and of the gods who were oiiginalK
merely the symbolical personifications
of these. At tho winter solsticu thu
Germans held their gieat Yule feast in
commemoration ot the return of the Her
sun wheel, and believed that durinu
tlio twelve nights leaching from th
Mi J-Jee. to the 0th January tliey
could tracu thu personal movements
and interferences on the earth of their
great deities, Odin, Berehia, Ac. Tho
thuich sought to combat and banish
this deeplv-roolt d heathen feeling, by
adding its giandly-duvised liturgy, be
sides dramaiiu representations of the
Birth of Christ and the first' events
of his life. Hence sprang iho so-called
Manger-songs nnd a multitude of
Christmas carols. Ilenco also origin-
Ued, al a later period, tho Christmas-
Uees, adorned with lighls and gifts,
tho customs of reciprocal presents, and
of special Christinas meats and dishes,
hitch as Christinas rolls, cakes, dump
lings, ivu. ihus Uhristmas became
universal social festival lor young
and old, high and low, as uo other
lertival could have become.
Our Anglo-Saxon ancestors mado a
great deal of tho day. King Arthur
gave a loyal feast on Christmas Day
at Carlisle, when ho entertained man
and beast, "acconling to iheir rank,
in proper styh ." Thu bill of fate con
sisted of salmon, venison, and wild
boar, hogs-lreads of honey, sheep, fat
ted beeves, and bacon swine; plum-pud-
lings, pancakes, apple-pies, nnd distant
with which they iliank good Gascon
wmo mead, home-lnuwed ale and cider.
"All sorts of jwoplo h ci-o seen together
All sorts ot characters, nil sorts ot dresses;
Tlio fool with tux's toll and peacocks feather,
Hhjrlins and penitents and grata burgesses;
The country peoplo with their coats of leather,
Vintners and victuallers with their cans and
tlrooms, archers, varlets, falconers and yeomen,
Uainschjand walting-malds and walllng-women."
During tho Tudor period, with tho
exception 1 1 thu "still Uhnstmas in
1.12.), while King Henry was ill, the
sacred season nppeais to have been reg
ularly celebrated with joyous music,
songs, and feasting. After tho Restor
ation, Christinas again exhibited a
hearty, cheerful, and eveir joyful char
acter. But since the accession of tho Houso
of Hanover lhu festivities which wero
formerly appropriate to tho occasion
have much fallen off. Dickens, by his
writings, has done much to revive the
intert st formerly taken in iheui, espo
ciallv with thu young. But for all.
Christinas festiviiits, instead of lasting
with more or less brilliancy till Caudle
mas, and with great spirit till Twelfth
Day, only extend now over two days
Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Nor
on tho fonuer day have wo Btich royal
leasts as thu ono held by King Arthur
at Carlisle. A meeting in the after
noon or evening, composed of thu vat
ions branshis and members of tho
family, and n substantial dinner, arc
generally speaking, all that distinguish
that day above others.
