BY JEAN BONCCET.M.
When snow lies deep upon the ground,
And winter winds are blowing,
And on the hearth, with crackling blaze,
The winter tires are glowing ;
Then through the land a magic voice
A pleasant song is humming,
" Friends parted long shall meet ere long,
For Christmas Day is coining."
The school-boy hears it at his task,
And his heart is lighter beating ;
The plodding student lifts his head
And thinks of a happy meeting ;
To old and young, to rich and poor,
The gentle voice is humming,
" Friends parted long shall meet ere long,
For Christmas Day is coining."
Throughout tha house a busy stir,
The cook in glory reigning,
The maids' soft dream of ihisletoe,
'Midst graver cares disdaining;
For, in her ears, the magic voice
Another song is humming,
" The Christmas pudding must be made,
For Christmas Day is coming.'
The dreaming poet hears the voice,
And it seems as bells were ringing,
And angel choirs a Christmas song
To all mankind were singing ;
And he echoes forth the note of peace,
The voice to hint is humming,
"Goa bless each friend, forgivi , each foe,
For Christmas Day is coming,"
Writlyn for FATHER Ann An ANI.

When lye carry our ima!rinations :111(1

ha VClnatle duri tile past forty years. noth
ing, it seems, is impossible or too extrava
gant. Taking fiw granted that our Govern
ment will live, strengthen and i mprove i t self
for a century to come, it is :it least au open
and fair question whether or not all peo
ples and States throughout the worlll will
ultimatt!ly become one people, and govern
ed by the one progressive republican sys
tem which we now enjoy only ill its in
limey. The great conflict between Liberty
and Despotism; between the masses and
their oppre.ssors, MUSE terminate sonic day,
and that day, according to present in
dications, may not be very far distant —the
child may now occupy a place in the pub
lic school who will live to enjoy citizen
ship under the one Government of the
To enable us to form some idea as to
the working of this great future Govern
ment, we will again refer to Professor
John Smith, who overheard a conversa
tion between two prominent politicians in
the year 1918
First Politician.—W hat's going on at
Washington just now ?
Second Politician.-- Not nuu•lt of im
portance. The Senator front Russia, Kis
sissivit•h, replied to the Senator front
China. W hang-go-chunk, on the pending
joint resolution directing the Onninission
ers of public property of the general sub
district of Asia, to take down that old
relic ot• the dark ages, the Chinese wall.
Kississivitch, ot• course, being one of the
Progressives, strongly favors the measure,
Nv ils t Whang-gu-chunk brands it as an
outrage upon his constituents.
First P.—lsn't it wonderful how per
sistently these Chinese stick to sonic of
their old ideas! It seems as if they still
entertain sonts.! notions of a separate gov
ermneut, such as they had just before the
final consolidation in 191)6.
Second P.—But you aro mistaken.
Whang-gu-chunk is just as liberal-minded
and progressive as Kississivitch, or any
.other man. lie only contends that the
wall, or as much of it as now remains,
should be left unmolested, merely as a
relic, and not for the purpose of keeping
alive any sectional prejudices among the
First P.—What's your opinion as to the
next Presidency ? Who, in your opinion,
will receive the nomination of the General
Second P.—Well now, that's hard to
tell. Senator Bismarck seems to b 3 gain
ing strength. The delegation from Ger
many are a unit in his favor, and so they
are from Egypt, Japan, Turkey, Peru and
Jersey. His principal strength, however,
is the old German element, being, as I
suppose, on account of his great Grand
&tiler, who, it is alleged, was the success
ful leader of a small clan known as the
Prussians, about the year 1866 or 1867,
and who, after a short but intense little
contest at arms, defeated a similar clan
then known as Austrians, in the Southern
part of the State. Indeed, they pretend
to say that the final consolidation of the
former nations under the Government of
the United World may be traced to that
very contest—ridiculous as it may appear.
Heinrich Von IVatfeMach, Conunissioner
of the Aeriehnail department, in a speech
at Constantinople, the other day, asserted
that the grand consolidation was as much
owing to the result of Old Bismark's vic
tory as to any other single cause or event,
the conquest of England and France by
the Mexicans, perhaps only excepted.
First P.—But, when it comes to setting
up claims of this kind, I think those of
Thaddeus S. Grant are decidedly the best,
for it was his great Grand-father who fin
ally subdued the bloody democratic Slave
holders' rebellion against the very Govern
ment which now rules over all, and under
the stars and stripes flag, which has out
lived all other flags. Besides, Grant is
one of the soundest of statesmen—even
the equal, in some respects, of his great
Grand-father, Ulysses himself.
. Second P.—l am beginning to suspect,
to tee the right, let us stripe on to finish the work
we are in ; to bind up the nations wounds; to

too, that La Bequet is getting to be a for
midable candidate—that he will not only
be supported by the delegates from the
State of France, but also by Hindostan,
Nevada, Norway, Sandwich Islands, Ire
land and Guinea, which might give him
the balance of power.
First P.—Well, I think we should unite
upon one who is a native of the old, origi
nal United States, say Sparks, of Canada;
Juanti of Mexico; or A. Lincoln 13rown
low, of Tennessee. The fact is. the Green
landers, Italians, Turks, South Carolini
ans, Peruvians, Australians and Ver
monters are creating a strong freling in
favor of Brownlow. Or, there's another
man—Wood, of New York—wouldn't
wonder if he would become a strong and

First P.—l heard that lectore very
highly spoken of—but don't just remem
ber the main points-1 suppose you call
tell me what they are.
Second P.—The lecture presents, as she
contends, a true picture of the state of so
ciety in the old United States of America
about one hundred years ago—then bound
ed on the north by the St. Lawrence river;
on the south by the Gulf of Mexico; on
the east by the Atlantic a n d on the west
by the Pacific.
First I'.—N orth, nonsense—l'm sure
she's wrong about the St. Lawrence ever
having been the northern boundary of the
Old United States, for the State of Cana
da, you know, is on the north.
Second P.—But, don't you know that
Canada used to belong to England, awl
after the Mexicans demolished the govern
ments of France mud England, in IS9B,
they sold all their acquired and subdued
territory, from the St. Lawrence to the
North Pole, to the then existing United
States Government ?
First P.—You are right-1 was
taken—l now rememlw reading all about
it. But, go on.
Second P.—Well, after going over the
political events of the times—a hundred
years ago—she presents some very amus
ing facts in regard to the usages of society
then, and the very small amount of sewn,
tific advancement which the people then
enjoyed. For instance, a hundred years
ago the swiftest traveling known was from
thirty to forty miles an, hour—moving
along by means of cars on wheels running
over iron rails, and the trains drawn by
steam power. To obtain their fuel people
used to dig down into the earth hundreds
of feet, through solid rock, until they
reached what they called anthracite coal,
which was then used as fuel—for all pur
poses—even for the manufacture of iron.
tras was then made and burned only for
light, and electricity was barely powerful
enough to send messages from one point
to another, over wires. When the first
cable was laid across the Atlantic, over a
hundred years ago, the people on both

a highly interesting account of the follies
s G ~,
of the people, when they not only destroy
ed each other by means of gunpowder—
when they met by hundreds of thousands
on the battle lields—but, also, how the
greater part of the human family became
demoralized and brutalized by the use of
alcoholic drinks, and in sonic parts of the
world, by means of opium and tobacco.
If her account of the vices referred to arc
true, the only matter of wonder is that the
entire human family (lid not then sink to
the level of brutes. Of course. we are in
debted to the original and liberal form of
government, founded by the Ohl United
States, and the right of free discussion and
a well supported public press, after the
great radical reconstruction measures of
Stevens, and the wise and brilliant ad
ministration of (;rant, which foyllowed, tior
the present happy condition of society
everywhere. Now, as we all know, mur

Mr. Drvid ..Nlaerea, a Scotemaao now i n
this country, paying a visit to Mr. George
If. Stuart. at his residence, in Philadel
phia, while there 1w had a delightful time,
and wrote :in account of it to a Scotch
Paper. We give the tollowing extract :
The supper hell ran'', and as we went
down Mr. Stuart pointed to a white mar
ble bust of General Grant, standing about
half way up the stairs. " That," said lie,
"is to be our next President." Knowing
him to be fitmiliar with Grant, I asked
him if the General was as taciturn as he
was reported to be. "Quite," said Mr.
Stuart. " Ile will sit here or in his own
house, with friends round him, and scarce
ly utter a word. But he reads and thinks;
has a keen insight; answers wisely and
without waste of words any question put
to him, and knows when and how to act
as well as any man in the country. Miss
Stuart, who had spent some days with the
General's family at Washington, bore the
same testimony to his habit of silence and
his modesty. She told me that at one of
the great fairs Grant was called on for a
speech. lie refused. Sherman was soli
cited, but with no better result. Grant
was then appealed to, to exercise his au
thority over Sherman, and order him to
make a speech. "No," said Grant; "
never order any of my officers to do what
I cannot do mysself." She said also that
at a fitir in New York a pretty young lady
went up and asked Grant if hg would give
her a kiss. " No, miss," said the grim
little General, " I won't.''
Among the relics of revolutionary times
brought to light by the demolition of the
old " Washington House," in Stamford,
Ct., is . the following letter from Benedict
Arnold to General Washington :
" But : I take this opportunity to inform
your Excellency that I consider' myself no
longer acting under the commission of Con
gress, their last (here the words are illegible)
being my papers at West Point, you, sir, will
make such use as you think proper. At the
same time I beg leave to assure your Excel
lency that myattachment to the true interests
of my country is invariable, and that I
am actuated by the same principle that has
ever been the governing rule of my conduct
in this unhappy contest.
"I have the honor to be your Excellency's
most obedient and most humble servant,
"His Excellency George Washington."
