• .NE YORK, Jan. 2„-1864.
7 .. The Old' year has gone. The.. New year
bee come. The one, like an old warrior laid
•deetn to die, covered with seams, and-scars of
' thee well-fought - battle'of ;life; the •other a
, 014i:tering heio, in: the fresh panoply of a
advice in the outset of strife. On the demise
of the veteran, the- elements rained
tears, and.the winds howled:: in a way' that
,would;dutve, done eredi to an Irish wake.
In . equ'al ;ratio with ; the eidusness of the
-exit of the Old Yiar, tile New Year paani
' felts a tyranny feailul to contemplate in the
light of the suffering poor, and sugg,estive of
:Beltoboam's policy, who added to the heavy
.yoke of 'his Father, and increased the chas
•l-isement of whips with scorp•ons. But sud
"&enly a thought- flashes - across us. Can the
pa t it be.deadf. Is it not living for or against
•as in the records of eternity ? God 'help us
-all tcfrealize that we are weaving - - tho web
tsff our future destiny in' the filling up of "elicit
'twelve months Of our lives. ' '
Before the arrival of New Year's day indi
.arttions were strong of preparations for the

"been mentioned as-a sum offered for a car

As - in her sister city-Philadelphia, the day
has grown to be more of tin -universal holi

Institutions have needed. My special atten

which numbered fir Christmas, its first

• So I turned with a sigh of-resignation away
from the' fresh 'exhilerating air, the vivid
• March sunshine, into the close little dens
lined with law books, and strongly perfumed
with the odor of Russia leather, which Jack
denominated his office! On the whole I felt
rather as if I were an amiable sacrifice on the.
altar of disinterested friendship. Damon an&
Pythias were great cronies, no doubt, if-44
were to put faith in the records of hi#4l; .
but I never heard that Damon spa, : t,t
