' TUE CHRISTMA S DAY. •
Is it long to Christmas Day, mama?
le seems so long since last:
I've waited:Alit I'm tired out,
And almost feared 'twas past.
It seem though "[mould never come—
And nowtwill soon be here:
The weather's; getting colder, too; •r •
Is it Winter, mama dear?
And I'm to learn to skate, =Mil
Toll ProtaiSed Uncle Ned;
And you will give a pair of states
And pe & nice. new sled. •
And Mama, all the boys et school,
Ara going to build; with snow,
A fort that some will try and take.
Like men in war, you know. -
The river will be frozen then. '
As smooth as it can be.
And I will skate along tile shore
Where yen and pa can see.
And grandpa's to he here, mama,
I hooe ne'll surely come:
`'.-- Be tells such pretty stories, too,
When we are all at bores. •
• • • • .• . • . •
The holidays have co e agate.'
The earth is robed layette:
And fairer than a peet's dream . .
It glistens le the sight.
- The river, ice-bound, allent flows,
Beneath the crystal bend;
And Velditeto till the spring time heat
Shall verdure sit the land. •
The shouts are echoed far and wide
Ac:oss the icy floor;
• Mid happy throngs are speeding on
Along the frozen shore — -
rlerash--a plunge—a shriek for aid—
A running to and ire—
And Death drags down a little form •
To the cold depths below:
. ' 'Ti, Christmas'eve; theaters above
- Shine bright In Heaven's blue: '
" The moon's so ft beams are tinging all
' With their own sliver hue. • _
The merry bells are ringing out
A welkin note to earth;
And hill repeats to shadowy v il e
The pealing song of mirth.
But all alone; the little form,
Lies still, and cold, and dead:
The moonbeam as hes
has rest ed upou the fate,
But ail of li._
And waiter than the drifted snow .
That wintry wines have di Wen,,.
The little siesner sleepeth on—
Ills Christmas came le H eaven. •

The imports' of ford= merchandise en

eleven months of the presen year have
been, in gold, $237,170,747. The exports,
exclusive of specie, were in currency, $149,-
078,817, equal, with gold at 184, to $lll,-
999,117 in specie. This makes a balance of
trade against us. on products other than
gold, of $125,171,630 for the eleven'months.
Of this 5um,569,128,694 was paid in gold,
and 456,04796 was met by the export of
bonds and other American securities, i. e.,
we ran in debt in Europe by that amount:

ran in debt in Eutope as we can produce
been produced, in this country, as they
should be, or had the money spent for

policy, looking to early resumption

saved as much at, would have paid one
year's expenses 'of the civil list, or one
year's interest cm the national debt. For

with the above: period, we imported $1.21,-
164,561 of tho manufactures of iron, steel,
copper, wool, glass, leather, and other ata
