NUM/US WYDDINGS.—The financial panic does not seem to affect the matrimonial mar ket, for weddings are of almost daily occur rence, here and elsewhere. We learn that three young gentlemen of this city intend to celebrate Christmas by leading the same num ber of fair ladies to the altar to-morrow morn ing. A very sensible and commendable move ment. We tender the parties our congratula tions, in advance, and wish them a very happy and merry Christmas "But happy they 1 the happleit or their kind I Whom gentler biers unite, and In one rate Their hearts, their fortune,-, and their beings blend, 'T,s not the coarser tie of human laws Unn tur.

COMION has been urged, first or last, for nearly every description of delinquents, from little John who won't go to school and needs to be spanked to urge him in that direction, to big South Carolina that won't stay in the Union and needs some such operation to produce a similar obedience. But here Is the first instance we have ever heard of coercing hens. A lady correspondent of the Mobile Advil'User, writing from Kansas, relates the following ex traordinary proceeding : 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 did you" do that for ?" I asked. " To make 'em lsy," 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 future I 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 Pennovlnania 10al1p ettegrapb, Jrionbav 'Afternoon, tlltEember 24, 1360. will have other owners soon. You cannot long find the olden faces grouped around the winter fires. One more glance at the Christmas times of old, before they pass away forever I PROFESSOR Atiazasort, the unrivelled "Wizard of the World," gives his opening exhibition this evening. He comes very highly recom• mended by the Philadelphia papers, and we have no doubt his feats of magic and pschyco logical experiments will interest and amuse all who go to witness . them. The reputation of the Professor should be a guarantee that the enter tainment will be a first class one. The pro gramme for this evening embraces some of the Wizard's selections from his reportoire of magic, etc. The stage has been decorated in a .style that will enchant all Who behold it. The gold and silver apparatus is beyond description. Magic, mystery and mirth are all combined in the entertainments of Prof. Anderson, Jr. He should be seen to lie appreciated.

Sole Agent for Philadelphia. Read the following from the New York Courier : 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 Leauons. 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. sep6•daw6mt C.
