OUR BEGULAK COKKES DKNCK
It is quite in order tbis morning te say
something about the weather, -which is by
atany degrees the coldest wc have had for
several years. At daybreak this morning
the thermometers about town all register
ed 10 or mere degrees below zero. At
Ihe P. It. B. machine shops, up by the
basin, the mercury steed at 14 degrees
belowjcere ; at the opera house 12 below,
and atseveral private residences 12, 11 and
10 degrees below were registered. The
upward motion, despite a very bright sun,
has been very, very slew. At 9 o'clock 10
degrees below r.as a fair register; at 10
o'clock 8 degrees below, and at 12:30 p m.
the register was 2 degrees above and a
Etiff breeze springing up.
Quite a large audience assembled in the
Bethel church, corner af Walnut and 7th
street last evening, the occassien being
the Christmas celebration of the Sunday
school of the church. The exercises con
sisted of singing by the school, addresses
and presentation of gifts. The addresses
were made Mr. Simen C. May, superinten
dent of the school, Mr. Gr.iybill and the
pastor, Rev. Mr. Esteriinc. Theie weic
two very pretty Christmas trees, which
were elaborately ti immed and presented
a very attractive appearance. Inside this
pretty little church everybody was warm
and happy ; outside the cold north wind

The Frederick (Md.) Times, in a recent
issue says : ' Captain A. E. Frccburn
and wife, who have been residing in this
city for several years past, and who have
wtm hosts of friends here, took their de
parture for their new home at Liltles Liltles
tewn, Pa., en Thursday morning. The
captain will take charge as proprietor of
the National hotel of that place en the 1st
prex, and will, he says, make it pleasant
for his friends who may chance that way."
Capt. Freeburu was formerly a conductor
en the Frederick division P. H. 11., and is.
well known and highly esteemed among a
host of friends in Columbia, who will ah
join in wishing him success in his new oc
cupation. six or eight. Columbia ladies and gentle
men have made arrangements te s&igh te
Lancaster this evening for the purpose of
attending the " assembly." "We doubt
very much whether they will carry out
their intentions se far as the sleighing
part, should the lutnpciaturc continue
down at the zero point or lower. Just im
agine driving from Columbia te Lancaster
in an open sleigh at 4 or 5 'clock in the
morning with the mercury at 10 degrees

barely manage te inn en time, but the
freight men have te Miller. It takes a long
time te run from Columbia te Philadel

men this morning who repeit frost-bitten
cars. This is just the kind of weather for
little inconveniences of that nature.

Aycr & Sen's Newspaper Annual.
Wc received some time since from N.
W. Ayer & Sen their American ncwsfiapcr
annual of 1830, a handsome book of ever
600 pages, which is, as they say, the
"first effort te produce an accurate, im
partial and serviceable directory of the
American Press." We hitherto have
failed te notice it, finding that se far as
our knowledge gees of the newspapers
whose circulation it. gives, it was
net "accurate or serviceable.' Doubt
less it is impartial, as the publishers
have no icasen te be partial. But they
are in the difficulty of all compilers of
newspaper directories; they de netvciify
the information they assume te give. In
most cases they cannot; it is impesMblc
for them te ascertain the circulation of
newspapers unless the publishers give
them te them correctly. This they de
net de, as we find en consulting this
book. And as far as this feature gees,
which is the main one of the work, it is'ef
less than no value, as its information, be
ing fabc, is misleading.
We would have avoided saying this in
criticism of Aver & Sen's book, but aa we
te-day receive a second request for a no
tice of it, we comply.
Nevlu'8 Vignettes of Travel.
The highly interesting-letters -written
for the Philadelphia Frets by Mr. W. W.
Nevin when in Europe, many of which
were republished in the Intelligencer,
have been recast and published in book
form by Lippincotts under the title of
"Vignettes of Travel," aud charming ones
they arc. The prosy narrative ct many
travelers, their barrren guide book style,
or the gush of se many ethers who
rhapsodize ever foreign institutions indis
criminately, have given the public a
deserved prejudice against books of
travel. Se many people who imagine them
selves travelers use their opportunities te
peer purpose,and aggravate the offense by
imposing still worse books about it upon
the public, that, with our ready daily com
munication with foreign countries, the
reading public have come te depend upon
the regular newspaper correspondents or
the personal rejwrt of their friends for in
formation about people and places, man
ners and institutions abroad.
After all, the highest purpose et foreign
travel is the better appreciation and un
derstanding of our own institutions, gov
ernmental and social. Paradoxical as this
may seem Mr. Xcviu's book proves it. His
observations weie made with a view te in
stitute and cairy out comparative studies
of social and political life in ether coun
tries, since in the modern development
of .science comparative study has
been the rule of advancement. What
we knew and what we are
cau best be determined by what ethor na
tions knew and what they arc. England
is se nearly kin te us in her language, her
laws aud her literature, that this study be
comes of greatest profit te the American
citizen and traveler from the observation
of her institutions. This view was made
by the author with the acutcness of a
scholar, the pride of a patriot and the op ep
pnitunitics that offered te an accom
plished gentleman. His descnptiens
of town and country life in Eng
land,- and especially in the easy famil
iar style of comparisons of English towns
and shiies with their Pennsylvania name
sakes, are felicitous and give his book a
marked degree of local interest here. But
its highest merit is reached in its philo
sophical and practical comparisons of the
English methods of education aud politics.
We knew se little of English politics that
our judgment of them is apt te be that of the
vainglorious enthusiast or the carping
cynic. Mr. 2fcvin introduces us te the
contemplation of English politics under its
prevailing fundamental aspect, the transi
tion of .sovereign power going en there
new in the development of the English
man ft em the "subject" into the "citi
zen." The development of our agricul
tural reseuiccs is the downfall of Eng
land's landed system .and the leveling of
her " clashes." The description of a
parliamentary election wiil be found of
special interest in comparison with
our recent national struggle. The ac
count given of the English civil service, the
houses of Parliament and the prerogatives
of the crown aie full of interest te the
American political student. Mr. Xcviu
takes us thieugh the Londen which litera
ture has made se familiar te us, and we
gratefully ledge and dine with him at the
historic tavern of Lamb and Goldsmith and
Dickens. In Scotland and Italy and Reme
we fellow the writer mere with a view te
the picturesque and historical, and his de
scriptions everywhere are felicitous and
have the merit of telling us what we want
te knew and in language that we can
understand. The writer had, we imagine,
special opportunities te visw and measure
the social development of modern Italy,
and net the least interesting feature of
these letters is the account given of the
transition going en there, even te a greater
extent than in conservative England. While
Americans have less of kinship and sympa
thy witu the Southern nations, the cause of
libeity and its advancement has had no
mere romantic career than in Italy, and
wherever freedom throbs the triumphs of
the Italian patriot have been watched with
a solicitude that continues te fellow the
social and religious i evolution and the
establishment of modern institutions in
that great centre of civilization,
past and future. A most valu
able appendix te the "Vignettes" is
their hints te travelers the result of cx
pei icucc and suggested with a view te the
health, comfort, convenience and economy
of these who go abroad. These who read
it and pielit by it before taking passage
will save time and money and avoid an
noyance. The " Vignettes " are published
in fitting retting. Frem L. FenDersinith's
