lady correspondent of the Mobile Advil'User,
writing from Kansas, relates the following ex

After breakfast I was surprised to see my
landlady go out, arid, catching her hens, tie
each one's legs together, and throw them upon
the ground with " there, be good." "What
do that for ?" I asked. " To make 'em
she answered. "Make 'em lay, will that
do it," I inquired. "La, yes," she said, "didn't
you ever beam tell of that before?" I con
teased that I had not. In an hour she went out
again, and picking up the hens, sure enough,
some had laid;. those she let go, and they ran
off, not even cackling their gratitude. But
those hens which seemed disposed to be con
trary, she struck on the back, saying "you had
better lay—you'd better lay, for you won't go
until you do," and in a little while they, too,
had recompensed their mistress forfeecling them
so bountifully. She says she does so every
Morning, and the hens know well enough that
"they have got to lay . "
THE CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL.—WO are now on
I the eve of another Christmas festival, and
thousands of little hearts beat happily in anti
cipation of the gifts that will be showered upon
them to-morrow. Their dreams to-night will
be of presents gay and beautiful—of visits and
sports. Christmas is emphatically the chil
dren's festival. Surely no one needs to be told
what Christmas day commemorates Every
child of a christian family, or of the Sunday
School, knows it. But who knows the origin
of this day P This is, to a great degree, lost in
obscurity. The best authorities in history give
no definite or certain account of it. The best
historians fix its origin in the fourth century.
Chrysostom says in a sermon he delivered in
Antioch, at a celebration of this festival on the
26th of December is the year 386, that it had
become known there less than ten years before. It
was first originated in the western or Roman
church. There were several heathen festivals oc
curring about the same time of year,which could
admit of being spiritualized, and with some
changes, transformed into a christian sense.—
The first of these was the saturnalia which re
presented the peaceful times of the golden age
in which Saturn reigned, and also anticipated
the return of that age. It abolished, for a
while, the distinction of rank between servants
and freemen, and was devoted to mirth and
hospitality. Early christians thought that
christianity had introduced the true golden age
by the advent of Christ, who had procured true
liberty both for the freeman and the slave.—
Then came a festival still more analagons to
the Christmas festival. This was the birthday
of the new sun, about to return once more from
his winter solstice towards the earth. This
festival was called the festival of the " Invin
cible Sun," and was kept on the 25th of De
camber. This last feast admitted of an easy
transition to a christian sense, when Christ,
the Sun of the spiritual world, is compared to
that of the natural. For, as in the material
world, it is after the darkness has reached its
highest point that the end of its dominion is
near and the light begins to acquire fresh power;
so, too, in the spiritual world, after the dark
ness had reached its utmost height Christ the
spiritual sun, appears to make an end to the
kingdom of darkness. The celebration of
Christmas was, therefore, placed on the 25th of
December, ifist because Christ was born on that
day, but because it took the place of certain
heathen festivals occurring about that time,
and especially that of the " Invincible Sun,"
which occurred on the 26th of December.—
There was also a custom prevalent at these fes
tivals of presenting presents, which passed over
to the Christmas fistival. There was also the
'Festival of the Infants," which was a part
of and concluded the festival of Saturnalia,
where the children were presented with little
images. Christmas was therefore regarded as
the festival of the children. From these an
cient customs have probably descended some of
the peculiar features of our Christmas. How
wonderful are the links that bind us to a far
I distant age. How strange that the festival we
are about to celebrate should have descended to
us through so many nations, races and tongues,
and in all symbolizing the greatest fact of hu
man experience—the advent of our glorious
Lord and Redeemer., .
An old scrap lying before us, evidently writ
ten and published long ago, breathes the very
spirit of such a Christmas as some of us remem
ber in other days and in other places. Read
it, and see if some of the buried memories of
youth do not come trooping back :
Merry Christmas is here ! The day of days
to which our childish hearts so often looked
forward. When _pies would have a few . more
of large plump raisins than they commonly
had, and when our pieces were to be larger ;
when doughnuts should be plentiful, and very
crisp, all freshly cooked ;—when little Willie,
from over the brook, was to come and see us
and stay all day lung, and bring his new jack
knife and ball ;—and when that long promised
new jacket, with the six-and-thirty shining
buttons, was to be put on for the first time;—
this day of days, that was, has come again.
It is not the same now that it used to be
Perhaps it is as well that it should not be.
There were, on those very Christmas mornings,
while the poultry was roasting and the dough
nuts were cooking, boxed-ears of little folks,
and harsh sendings away from the places where
we particularly coveted to be—that, though
we have partially forgotten them now, made
the life of childhood well nigh as checkered as
even that of manhood has been. And so it is
as well that the Christmas times have changed.
To be sure, time has made a sad and heavy
mark among the things that were—has struck
a bitter blow at many of our fairest idols. To
be sure, little Nelly, who played with us on
that Christmas morning, is dead and buried,
and the moss is even heavy at the foot of her
tombstone. It must be loug since they buried
her, or that long green moss could never have
gathered P To ue sure, Willie has gone away,
and we never see his sunny face, ae we used to
do when we were boys. To be sure, Willie's
face is not eves sunny now, when we come to
hink of it, but must have the sallow hue o
care, and crows•feet under the eyes, and wrink
les on the brow, even as our own. To - be sure
little Tommy is great Tommy now—very rich
and very busy, and does not spend his Christ
mas times with us, but dines off glittering plate
and drives fast horses -after duper. To be
sure, all this—and yet it is as well as it is !
Life has not all of gladness in the past—not all
of sorrow and loneliness in the present and the
For in the places of the by-gone ones, whose
memories only we may gather around us at
this Christmas time—thank God that in the
places of these, there are those of whom we
have something more than a memory ! There
are warm lips that yet bless us with their
breathing ; there are sunny tresses yet, upon
which we can lay our hands, and call them—
under Heaven—our own I We have not had
the ranks of life and hope all thinned without
a compensation. No, no ! away with sickly
thoughts of what has been i—thank God for
now! and for that we have to-day! There is
not this compensation for all ; there are those
this day who cannot look back upon the bud
ding up of new hopes to take places of the
olden ones that perished for them let us be
1 sad in sympathy, even while we joy over the
' rich blessings of heaven to us.
Christmas is here! The time of social gath
erings is at hand. The hoar frost lies on the
window-pane and crackles on the ground: The
wagons rumble with their winter sounds. The
pools are frozen ; the brooki have felt the
breath of frost and run sluggishly. The air is
heavy with the coming snow. The clear De
cember moon shines almost with a chill. The
noun of winter draws nigh. The time for
hearts to gather homeward seems to point it
self. Come home to the old hearth stone—to
the old roof-tree once more, branches of hon
ored trunks, while there is yet a welcoming
hand spread out to ,greet you. For the wet-
coming hand will drop away, the homestead

that will enchant all Who behold it. The gold

And Christmas thoughts are high and holy.
We weep no tears for dying years ;
Be theirs of life thecommon story;
But give to truth eternal youth,
And crown its natal day with glory;
The heart is warm, though fierce with storm - -
The bitter wind without be blowing ;
For Christmas time's the tropic Mime
Of hearts with cheerful homage glcwing.
The winter grieves o'er widiered leaves,
And leafless branches faith and quiver ;
But green shall be our Canisrmas Tsar,
And beautiful, in faith, forever,

I thought I was 'dreaming. Quite wild with surprise
For an instant I closed both my mouth and my eyes
The former, lest speaking the spell I might break,
The latter to prove I was really awake. •
Above me, beside me, before me, around,
Was a:mitered the semblanci dell that's been found
Remarkable, beautifel, laughable, gay,
Since the world was created. e'en down to to day.
Each object was fraught with most wonderful grace,
And look where I would, naught but beauty I'd face.
The mist of bewilderment passing away,
I noticed a camel hitched fast to a dray,
Who qu etly pulling his byrien
Preceued a queer but magnificent throng
Of poets, and princes, musicians and nuns,
Coreleted knights, and soldiers with guns,
Shepherds and students, peasants and kings,
Women in wooden shoes, ladies with wings,
All on a pilgrimage, bound for a shrine
Called—Please guess its name, for their secret's not
In a grove in their rear an elephant grazed,
While Pons and tigers looked on quite amazed
At an ox, who declared—the benevolent beast— -
He was fattening himself for a Christmas feast.
Some reindeers from Lapland, some birds from Brazil,
Each bolding a diamond, or pearl in its bill;
Arabian horses, and stately giraffes,
A grum looking bear, which actually laughs,
Alligators from Egypt, and hogs from Japan,
A monkey which danced quite as well as a man,
American sheep whose musical bass
Were accompanied by donkey's more musical brays,
All peacefully shared the delights of that grove,
And seemed ruled by no power stronger than love.
A few steps beyond was assembled a group
Of Chinamen dining on rich kitten soup.
While Japanese Tommy, the witty young noodle,
Regaled tnem with snatches from old Yankee Boodle.
A venerable schoolmaster sat in a corner,
Big name I believe was Mynheer Dingle:tomer,
Teaching twenty-four urchins, asnuar him they stood,
Their ah, bay, lay lesson. The sight did me good,
1 Behind bim an arsenal cooly revealed
Its treasures of cannon, swords, lances and shield,
But each from its duty bad founds release, •
For the motto that ruled, was "In Union there's peace."
Garibaldi played checkers with.kings in disguise,
'John Brown promenaded with Henry A. Wise,
And Blue Beard who killed his inquisitive wives
Was giving Paul Pry an account or their lives.
Unee Tom and his Cabin was there in great state
Surrounded by friends, both the small and the great.
John Gilpin was taking his unlucky ride,
White honest Ben Franklin jogged on by his side.
S me horrid old ogres I saw with surprise,
Rocked dear little babies ; while fairies with eyes
Bright as candles, and dresses of snowiest white
Lookedon with expression of purest delight.
Swiss cottages, sheep-folds, villages, towns,
• Dogs dressel up like dandles, old 'itches and clowns,
Lord Chesterfield ch iziged to a smart suple Jack,
Whiskemndoes who spring at a touch from a sack,
Victoria's bed with its rich silken fords,
And sweetmeats to heal the most obstinate colds ;
The loveliest bonbons for Christmas trees,
Innumerable puzzles one's patience to tease.
My brains must be swept with a magical broom
E'er I tell all I saw in this wonderful room ; •
At length glancing upward, le I who did I see
But old Santa Claus looking down upon me,
The darling cld gentleman looks as of yore,
He makes his head quarters at FELIX::' store;
And all that Is comical, excellent, rare,
You'll tind at his rooms—No. 10 Market Square.

ENaHMOIne Brisniess FOR MS New YORE friliSeilael , ..- . •
We are happy to Inform our fel'ow-citizens that were in
one place in our city where the physician, apothecary,
and country merchant, can go and purchase pure - Wines
and Liquors, as pure as imported, and of the beat quality;
We do not intend to give an elaborate description of this
merchant's extensive business, although it will well re
pay any stranger or citizen to visit Udoipho Wolfe's ex-,
Waive Warehouse, Nos. 13. 20 and 22 Beaver street,
and Nos. 17, 19 and 21, Mark ettield street. His stock or
Schnapps on hand ready for shipment could not have
been less than thirty thousand eases; the Brandy, some
ten thousand cases—Vintages of 1836 to 1856 ; and ten
thousand cases of Madeira, Sherry and Port Wine,
Scotch and Irish Whisky, Jamaica and St. Croix Rum,
some very old and equal to any in this country. He ales
had three large cellars, filled with Brandy, Wine, ato., in
casks, under Custom-House key, ready for bottling. Mr.
Wolfe's sales of Schnapps last year amounted to one
hundred and eighty thousand dozen, and we hope in less
than two years he may be equally tsuecessful with his
Brrndies and Wines.
His business merits the patronage of every lover of his
species. Private families who wish pure Wines and
Jquors for medical use should send their orders direct
to Mr. Wolfe, until every Apothecary in the land mare
up their minds to discard the poisbrious stud' from their
shelves, and replace it with Wolfe's pure Wiems and
We understand Mr. Wolfe, for the accommodation of
small dealers in the country, puts up assorted cases of
Wines and Liquors. Such a man, and such a merchant,
should be sustained against his tens of thousands of op
ponents in the United States, who soil nothing but imita
tions, ruinous alike to health and human happiness.
