The pastor of a Presbyterian church
in Pittsburgh has considered it neces
j sarv to remonstrate with some of the
! members of the church on account of
i their habit of beer drinking. Instead
jof receiving the rebuke meekly and
promising to mend their ways, the
beer drinkers, it is said, have resolved
to resist all attempts to discipline them,
on the ground that it is not wrong to
drink beer. If any attempt is made to
settle that question, the result will ex
cite great interest. Probable opinions
will differ as widely as they sometimes
appear to do on the question whether
beer is intoxicating.

There seems to be a good prospect
that Congress will at the present ses
sion reduce the letter posiage. The
recommendation of the President to
that effect has been promptly followed
by the offering of a reso
lution in the House authorizing the
Appropriations Committee "to add a
clause to the bill making provision for
the postal service; which shall reduce
the rate of postage on first-class
mail matter from three to two cents
for each half ounce or fraction thereof.''
This plan was adopted as the certain
way to reach action on the matter, the
I'ost Office Committee and Congress
men generally are in favor of the re
duction, and the resolution was pass
ed almost without dissent. One thing
is sure. There is no more popular
thing the Republicans could possibly
do than to mark the present as "the

of an event in history which has wrought a
better and greater work than any other. Chris

thinkers, whatever opinions may be held as to
the essential divinity of the niau of Xaaareth,
to be the one potent force which has transform

never knew before. What human society wa-.
in even the most enlightened nations of the
earth, at the birth of Je«us is impressively por
t rayed bv Paul in the pictorial first chapter of
the" epistle to the Romans. And what our race
was then it is to-day wherever the maxims of
the Gospel have not become the ideal law of
individual, domestic and collective life. Here

its disciples in every aire rejoc'ngly along the J

To-day we stand in the full light of the
conquest of the Cross. The emblem of a cruel

which goes everywhere in ceaseless battle with
the evil and in a tireless ministry of benefits.
The true Christain spirit expresses itself in
Our religion is comprehended in Love—to
God and man. The Christmas day renews the
tokens of love in the family, the ever-widening
domestic and social circle : as the Magi came

We notice that the Pennsylvania
Company, I'., C. & St. L It. It.
Pennsylvania Central and branches
which compose the great through lines
to all parts of the country have made
arrangements l»y which excursions can
be taken in any direction at very low
rates. The fare is so low that it is
within the reach of every one, giving
them an opportunity to visit the city,
places of interest, or a Holiday visit to
friends. We may say that this is a
real Christmas greeting from these
roads, and shows that they are up to
the times in doing their part that the
public can have every chance
to make the holidays those ol
pleasure. Tickets are ' sold
from all the stations of the differ
ent divisions from December '22 to
January 1, 188:5, and good for return
trips until January 18815 the rtttes
being exceedingly low that all may en
joy the festivities of the season, either
in the country among friends or seeing
the many sites in the cities. It makes
no difference in what direction you
may wish to go, these roads have the
facilities to send you to any point by
innumerable branches that are under
the control of the roads.
In addition to the holidays excur
sions these popular companies have
one to Jacksonville, Florida. One of the
most pleasant winter excursions that
can be taken. The tickets for this excur
sion ill be good for return trips till
May .'sl, 1883, and the excursionists has
not less than a dozen different routes to
select from in purchashing their tickets
by the Pennsylvania line. Baggage is
checked to destination. Kates from
Pittsburgh for the round trip, we learn,
is only $48.60.
We would say to our readers to em
brace these litieral Christmas offerings
to visit the country and those in the
country to visit the city and places of
interest over the Pennsylvania road
We would further state that the gen

employs are always ready and will
