They say to-night is Christmas Eve, and,ligh
as I could reach,
I've hung my stockings on' the wall, and left. a
• kiss on each. .
I left a kiss on each for Him who'll fill my stock
ings quite :
He never came before, but O, I'm sure He will
to-night. • .
And to-morrowll bo the day our blessed Christ
was boil],
Who came on earth to pity me, whom many
others scorn.
And why it they trent 1111 . 6 so indeed I cannot
tell, C •
But : while tow Him next to you, then all seems
• wise end-well.
I long have looked for Christmas, Mother—
waited all the year ;
f a
And ver , strange it is indeed to feel its dawn so
But to-morrow'll be the day I so have prayed
to see,
And I long to sleep and wake, and find what it
will bring to me. •
The snow is iu the street, and through the win
dow all the day
watched the little children pass they seem
' ed so glad and gay I
And gaily did they talk about the. gifts they
, would receiVe ;-
0, all the world is glad, to-night, for this is
Christmas Ere!
And, Mother, on the cold, cold floor I've put my
little shoe—
The other's• torn across the toe, and things
might there slip through;
I've sot my little shoe, Mother, and it for you
shall be,
For I know that He'll remember you while He
remembers me
So lay me in my bed, 'Mother, and hear my
prayers aright.
He never came before, but 0, I'm sure Ho will
?dotLer, is it the morning set? Idreamed that
it was here; +
I thought the sun shone through the pane, so
blessed-and so clear.
I dreamed my. little stockings film) were full as
they could hold.
But it's hardly morning yet, 'Mother --it is so
dark and cold.
I dreamed the bells rang from the church where
the happy People go,
And they rang good-will to all men in a latc
h-nage that I know.
I thonght 1 took from off the wall, my little
stockings there,
And on the floor I emptied them—such sights
there never Were I
A. doll was in there, meant for me, Just like
those little girls
Who always turn away from nte ; and 0, it had
arch curls!
Lkissed it on its painted cheek ; my own are not
so sweet,
Though jteople used to stop to pat and praise
them in the street. .
And, Mother, there were many that
. things
would have pleased you too;
For_He who bad remembered me had not for
gotten you.
But I only dreamed 't was morning, and yet 'tie
far away,
Though well I know that Ho will come before
the earbolay.
So I will put my dream aside, though I know
my dream was true,
And sleep, and dream my dream 'again, and
rise at morn with you.
ulght have I waked with weeping till the
bells are ringing wild,
All night have I waked with my sorrow, and
lain in my tears, like a child.
For over against the wall as empty as they can
Thu limp little steeltings hang, and my he is
tweaking in me!
Your vision nail also as the world, 0 diqling
dreamer and dear: •
And how can I bear'pau to wake, and find no
thrisnuati hest?
Better you and I were asleep in the slumber
whence none may start.
And 0, thine empty stockings! I could fill them
out of my heart!
NP Christmas for you or for me, thirling; your
kisses were all in vain;
I have given your kisses back to you over And
over again;
I have folded you to my breast with a moaning
no ono hears;
Your heart is happy in dreams, though your
hair is damp with my tears. ' .
lam out of heart and hope lam almost out of
my mind;
The world iseruel and cold, and only Christ is
kind :
And much must be borne and forborne ; but the
heaviesthurden or all
That ever bath lain on my life are those little
light thuiga op the wall.
Hush, Bells, you'll waken my dreamer: 0 dial;
dren so full of cheer!
Be a little leesglad going by ; there bath been
no Christmas here.
Go tenderly over the stones, 0 light feet trip

The slighted thing sleeps in my. artus—she'll
waken tofisoon, too soon!

..Enrron.: The Camptonians
have one of the most capacious and
beautiful halls in Eastern Bradford.
Its size is 20x40 feet; besides ante
rooms, &c., and has a splendid car
pet and bearitifufty papered and well
lighted. ,Altogether,,it reminds one
more of a parlor than of a hall.
The lodges
,are in a prosperous

- All nations have looked upWard in
their gaze, to a place •of future de
light, which they have- called heapen.
The savage in the forest has looked
across the river of death, and fancied
that he could see the smoke of a wig
wam, and an abundance of game
which he would be allowed to cap
ture. The Pagan has imagined
heaven somewhere beyond Ole vail,
but his conceptions of its joys are
vague. Tim Mohammedan expects
to roam in Elysian fields, and to be
enraptured with immortal choruses
forever. All false religions have in
spired their votaries with the prom
ise of a heaven after death. The
heaven for which I am looking and
longing, is a scriptural heaven. It is
the great metropoli where God re
sides ; it is the city where angels
'dwell ; it is the mansion which Jesus
has prepared.. My heaver is some
where beyond those shining stars, it
is above these cloud-topped hills.
Heaven will be a land of immortal
Isaiah looked for_ a heaven ,where
he could grasp - the hands of loved
ones, when he said; " The ansomed
•of the Lord shall return, and come to
Zion, with songs and everlasting joy
upon their heads." Blessed be God!
we shall meet agairi; meet, where the
faded flowers shall lift their heads
and blossom, never More to die ;
where that purer Eden shall be robed
in green, never to become sear by the
autumn of time ; we shall meet where
the morning beams are never lost be
hind the western sky, but forever
flicker upon the hill-tops of the bkst.
We shall meet where the sacred bands
of affection are never broken. •We
shall meet where the father can greet
his children ; where the mother can
press her offspring to her bosom ;
where brother can shake hands with
sister; where households renew their
relations; and where family groups
gather upon the banks of the rive of
life. 0, how often does the angel of
death take away our little tiny house
birds, just as they begin to throw
their soft tendrils around our necks,
and to make music at the paternal
board, and the drifting snow ,hides
them from view wider the cold damp
grOund By the bedside is an empty
crib, th© playthings are catttred
about the room, and altogether they
form a little castle, deserted and lone
ly: Their little being was jorus,
the broken circle of their fleeting life
was a garlard of sweetest flowerets.
But they have faded; the • casket has
been laid away in the tomb, and the
soul is now an angel-in - the sl4. 0,
it is `sad to lay our little ones beneath
earth's green coverlets, and yet how
many infant souls every day are drift
ing from our hearthstones Upon that
unknown sea which stretches away
beyond the visible. The shore is lined
with mothers, crying in angnikh after
he babies which have drifted from
their arms upon the waters.'-' But we
are cheered to remember that ire shall
meet them, that we shall take them
in our arms, that we shall kiss them
and know them in heaven. 0, holy
it inspires our hopes in the future, to
remember that every lost fondling of
earth is an angel in the skies! It is
joyous to think, that though these
flowers are banished from the earthly
Paradise, yet they . shall bloom fra
grant and beautiful in the heavenly
Paradise forever. Let us visit Green
wood, and imagine-that it is summer.
It is made pleasant and attractive by
everything that art can do. We see
written upon a little tombstone "Our
Allie !" upon another, " Our lost
Mionie !" upon another, " Our de
parted Carrie 1" then we remember
that all the "Minnies " and " Allies "
have gone skyward, and we are com
forted. What mockery would it be
to plant flowers over the graves of
our lost, unless we expected that they
would live again! What mockery is
it to weep for them, unless:we expect
to meet them and to love them be-
Jond.the river I But when we think
of the reunion above, where, we shall
wish all the lost of -earth that love ;
God, "good morning!" we are hope,
ful and glad. When we can no lon
ger take our fondlings upon the knee,
to think of the lullaby of heaven dries
all our tears and inspires us with ear
nest longings for that happy shore.
0, may we all meet where we can
sit beneath the rainbow hues of an
gelic arcades, and the arbors of heav
en, where the land-breezes play, where
the woodbine clambers, and the lilacs
entwine abOut the golden lattice
Let us live for heaven, for immortali
ty and the first resurrection.

UNION 8 DAT-80}100P.
.The writer of a letter froni,Mon
reeton, in the liirronna of last week,
says: "My experience has been 'that
Union lihmilirechoola are' such in
name only.' nese are party inter
ests which will always &rimy a Un
ion Sundoy-school." hare spent i
six years n this_ very business of ex
gatuzing lJnicon Sunday-id :teas, and
my experience is that they , are not:
"only in name" what, we_uive made
them, but they are each in verydeed;
that they are not "destroyed," but
hie and produce precious fruitto the
glory of God "The result" of diyi
sion in Monrootim may be " glorious"
The letter claims that it is; do not
know; but isolated cases, on either
aide, furnish no argument speak
of no particuliti case, but, of the gen
eral rule. What are the facts?
First.l can give_the names of more
than forty Union Sanday-schools that
I have assisted in planting in Brad
ford county, all of which have been
,Second. I can give the names of
over a hundred such schools; in an
other State, that have succeeded' as
Union schools, and therefrom have lie
come Christienrchurches. •
Third. I could fill a column of . the
Rtrontma with facts like these.
What does, this letter-writer mean
by " party interests "?' If he means
a little ipfinitesimal sectarian spirit.
which savors more I another spirit
than that of Jesus and his disciples,
he is not far from . the truth. That
spirit will "altrays destroy. Union
Sunday-school," wherever it' has the
power to !ha. so. Of c9tn.65 this is
not religion; but it is history.
I believe in .church or denomina
tional Sunday-schools wherever there
is a church, a pastor, and member
ship strong anpumerotu3 enough to
sustain such hool.
I labor and pray for this blessed
consummation in the case of all the•
Union or Mission schools with which
I have to do. • -
I can mention scores of communi
ties, well known in this county, which
are beyond the reach of any preacher
or church of Christ. The Union Sun- -
day-school is about all that can care
for the souls of the thousands living
in these, places. Will ye "destroy
that Union ? Then, inasmuch as ye
do it unto one of the least of these,
ye do it unto Christ.
The thrust which this writer aims
at a sister Church, concerning the
dcctrine of election, is, according Ito
"Thu most uukipdest cut of alt."
The bones of Calvin will hereafter
suffer no further disturbance.

I engage in no controversy, as such,
on any of these topics. If any per
son-is still in doubt as to the facts,
he may call upon me, in person, for
more of them. R. CRITTENDEN,

The (Jour/ Journal at St. Petersburg

the Emperor, October 27 :
" We have already announced that
on Wednesday lagt,.Monsieur Curtin,

and his most earnest hope that these
relations may not prolonged,
but become more firm and cordial, as
both countries shall realize the prog

certainly promise them in the near
future. In behalf of the Government

in the opportunity to offer the renew

respect for yotir Majesty, as well as
their hope and earnest wishes for the
uninterrupted prosperity of a reign

" To this his Majesty, the Emperor,
responded in the most gracious terms,
expressing his desire also for the con
tinuance of friendly relations between
the two countries—'thanking the rep

the kind words addressed ,to him
personally, and specially . balling at
tention to the progressive develop

resemblanc,e subsiking between them
in this respect."
I never saw a garment too fine for

folded, the figure extended one of its
hands. I-extended a hand .toci, and
the fig,ure, slightly inclining forward,
grasped it firmly. Instinctively I en
deavored to extricate myself, but so
far was I from succeeding, that I felt
myself pulled towards the glass. The
figure, then, was a reality, and a very
muscular reality too, forl Could not
resist it. Whitl ,, r was Igoing? It
was soon evident that there was no
glass at all, but an aperture in the
wall surrounded by a gilt frame, be
hind which was a room precisely cor
responding to my own. • The position
was alarming. •
On—on I was pulled, and fOr a few
seconds found myself enveloped in.
dakness. I seemed conscious of
nothing but vacuity, when suddenly
the arilSp ceased, and I was once
• More in the light; seated at a table,
opposite to a venerable old lady,
whose white hair, neatly parted from
the middle of the forehead, was sur
mounted by the most respectable of
caps. She wasabsorbed in the peru
sal of a large book, which lay open
before her. Not
.knowing how I
should be received, I refrained from
interrupting her studies, and took
a leisurly survey of the room.
In shape it was a prism. The ceil
ing and floor were equilateral trian
gles, and the walls were consequently'
three in number. The table too, was
triangular, so were the seats of the'
chairs, each of which had three legs,
and a huge bird-cage containing a
vulture, was in keeping with the fur
niture: Door, window or fire-place,
there was none; the only admission
to fresh air being . afforded by a trian
gular ventilator, immediately under
the ceiling. On the few shelves, which
broke the monotony of the walls,
were - placed some old booki, two or
three bottles, and , several knives or
daggers -of Oriental fashion. But
the most singular'object was a hide
ous. Indian idol, like those that rep
resent the horrible wife of Siva, which
stood in a corner, and before which
was a prismatic stone, smelly simi
lar in its proportions to the room.
"Well, George," said the old lady,
pruldeitly raising her eyes from the
book, and looking at me full in the
face, "so you have condescended to
visit me at last:"
Though my name is not George, I
felt that I was the person addressed,
so I began politely to deny the con
paoh-hoo ! never mind eotupti -
melts. You are here, and that is the
great matter. I see you are, rather
astonished; but then its very . snug,.
and q uite good enough fOr a simple

"Unique in Its structure, at .any
rate," I said, endeavoring to -admire.
"If am rather curious to low 'how
one enters it."
"Indeed, I wonder at that,
7ou yourself found your way so read
ily," she replied, with a slight laugh.
I felt uneasy, for I did not care to
describe My passage through the
glass, but thy-old lady did not seem
anxious for an explanation, since she
immediately added, ,"It would not
do to have a room too easy of access,
when things of this sort are flying
With these words, she opened a
drawer in her table and took out a
printed handbill with the formidable
heading, "One Hundred Pounds Re
ward." This she placed in my hands,
and I learned from its contents that
a butcher-boy bad been missed by
his employers, under circumstances
that led to the suspicion of murder,
and that the reward was offered for

"Luckily, he did not live in the

is better not to venture beyond beg

"Venture what?" I enquired..
"Immolation-t'.' Was the reply,
‘,4imn io .—..—"- I faltered. "Then it is
your opinion that the unhappy boy
was really murdered!"
"Really immolt*d? Of course I
do. It would be very absurd if I
thought other Wise, when I perform
ed the sacrifice with my own hands."
• "Attrocious wretch !—" I began.
- "Hoity-toity 1" interposed the- old
lady. • "Don't let ns lose our- tem

And really when looked at her
calm face, felt. that wrath was im
possible. She Was -some harmless'
lunatic, who, owned to crimes she had
never committed.
"I bore thei boy no ill-will;" she
proceed&l, "he was as welllbehaved

- "But why mar—that is, immolate
anybody ?' I inquired, intending to .
-humor Le delusion.
"That I can easily explain," shere-i
'plied: "You' have doubtless heard
that there is in India a secret sect of
devotees, who term t i hemSelves
Thugs." •
r "I have read of that detestable fra
ternity in the Wandering Jew of Eu
gene Sue," I responded..
"Your strong expression, at which
I take no offence, shims that- you are
not unacquainted .with our princi
ples. lam a.Thug, and veil the tact
by assuming t he name of Thugleigh."
It struck me that a thicker veil
Might.. have been afforded by the
name of Smith'or Brown,. but. I did
not interrupt.
"I therefore, on principle," she
proceeded, "offer at least once a
month a human sacrifice. to the God
dess Bowanee, whose effigy you see
in that corner."
"I would rather not have known
this circumstance," said I. "Indeed'
as your society is, as you say, secret,
itleems to me you break your rules
by making me your Confident"-
. "Not at all," she remarked, smil:
ing. "I am convinced that my secret
will not go any further."
"You have a high Opinion of m y
discretion," I rejoined, endeavoring
to look flattered.
"I have no opinion -whatever on the
subject," she calmly remarked. "For
all I know to the contrary, you may
be the veriest chatter-box in the uni
verse. 'But of this I am sure, that
dead men tell no tales, and I have
selected ybu for the next victim. Now
don't be alarmed. If you 'do not like
it, you shall not suffer any pain."
(While talking thus She advanced
towards a 'shelf.) It
: Would, indeed > ,

whereupon the idol sunk behind the
: stone, and exhibited a hideous face,

Horror gave place to iudigation.

This was the • fact, and I was in

road of escape was not Obious, and,
in a lit of desperation, I leaped into
the open month, head foremost, like
a harlequin. •
Again a few .momenta of darkness,
during which I heard a shriek of
female rage, and when this had pas

study, looking at a slim gentleman,
trimly dressed, and especially remar
kable for the perfect arrangement of

throwing my head back, perceived

enclosed me in an enormous trans

colors, which resisted my touch as
though it had been •of iron. I was
manifestly a prisoner, but the spheri-

my outstretched hands. •Soon the
gay prismatic colors that' played in
streams around me began to assume
definite shapes; some of -which ap
parently were distant from•ine sever

I was standing near a neat white

seated by a table, on which stood a
