Wednesday Morning, December 28,1887,
We are happy to see that whatever the
times May be, or whatever may be thought
about them, there is still a joyous antici
pntion of the holidays, and pleasant proofs .
in many directions, that whatever, clouds
there may have been, the world is pretty
well determined that, for a season at leant,
there shall be gleams of home- light.
Of all touching incidents not involving
real grief, there is hardly one so touching
as that of the giver who would gladly be
generous, timidly preparing with many
misgivings the little offerings, wherewith
so many hopes are bound up—a problem
of hope.
There are substantial reasons why the
coming holidays should be kept with par
ticular festivity and with more than won
ted rejoicing The whole community
has parsed through tight times and is on
the mending hand. Perhaps nothing
would go further towards promoting its
convalescence than the prospect of a down.
right good holiday, or help more towards
getting people's spirits up for renewed
A liberal scattering around of small
change among the dealers would do far
more than most persons would imagine
towards stirring up business, promoting
better feeling nud providing employment
for those who most need it.
There is a great deal of common sense
in promoting seasons of jo3ous festivity
and hearty mirth, and in seeking to do
our best towards bringing lightness of
heart into a life nine tenths of all whose
social eharacteristics are tinged with grim
seriousness, if not with almost invincible
melancholy. it is the failing of the An
glo Saxon of the present day that he has
no appreciation of joyousness. Ile looks
upon it occasionally with a misgiving smile
as the trifle of the moment, and tolerates
pleasure ana tee &Rama,
anything which he dreads may ruin him
if more than casually glanced at. Let
those who have been gifted in nnderstsn
ding this matter, do their best towards
making the world feel that the New
Year's tide is not a period of frivolous non
for the delectation of
children, but a time which ought, if possi•
ble, to be cultivated into social cinninunion
rest front labor and all manner of consoling
and inspiring pleasures,
-But there is a ground of Christian char
ity for helping holidays nlong, which•is by
far too little regarded. The grim Phan.
sees may not care themselves for joyous •
ness, but do they care nothing for the hap-
piness of the poor and the young 1 A
poet has finely sung that once
'A Christmas bouquet oft would cheer
A poor man's hearth for bathe year.'
And the idea is a very hne one. To
see the holidays pass by without a trace of
the usual festivities, is dreary indeed,
since nothing brings home to them so keen,
ly the tact that they are indeed suffering.
In good natured, kind-hearted old Germa.
ny, them are associations for the sole ob.
ject of providing tha children of very poor
parents with holiday gifts. 'there is a
degree of humanity in such charity which
we could wish to see generally imitated.
sr The Philadelphia Nor th dimeri.
can and United State., Gazette, made its
appearance a few days ago in an entirely
new dress.
The North 4merican is one of the best
dailies published in Philadelphia, and is
deserving of extensive patronage. Long
may it prosper.

We subjoin the following passages front

of Oregon. That State had only 43,13.5 white
and free colored inhabitants in the year IESO.

the whites 47,203. Florida was admitted as

27,942 white• In view of these figuruv i, is
quite clear that Florida had not near as many
white inhabitants as the total above quoted for
Oregon when she was admitted into the Uni•

We learn from the Lancaster pavers. thnt on
Tuesday last two women residing near Neffs
ville, Lancaster county, were murdered in
broad day light. The persons killtci were hits.
Garber, wife of Conrad Gerber, supervisor' .
and tax collectior of Manhoim township, and
Mrs. Ream, an elderly lady and relative of the
°arbors. It appears that the WOllllOll were ut
the time, alo n e in the house, which is situated
on a by road—the husband having been ab
sent on some business. Mrs. Garber was 55
years of age last October, and Mrs. Ream was
aged about 60. Mr. Garber, who is Supervisor
of fdanheim township, loP: his home between
6 and 7 o'cock in the morning, to supervise the
repair rf a road about two miles distant. Mrs,
Garber was alone in the house in the early
part of the day, but was joined Ly Mrs. Ream,
who lives with her sort oti the hill, about ono
I hundred and fifty yards from Garber's. The
families are connected by marriage. A (laugh.
ter of We. Garber is married to a son of Mrs.
Ream. At one o'clock yonng. Mrs. Ream
started down the hill for the purpose of keep
ing the old people company, and on entering
the house was horrified to find her mother and
mother-in-law stretched cold and lifeless upon
the floor, and weltering in their own blood.-
-She had presence of mind enough to immedi
ately give the alarm, arm within half an moor
the neighbors came in from every direeton.
Twii men, one a negro, and the other a ma.
lame, were mu to enter the hones about
teen minutes before eleven. o'clock, and no
other person was seen near or around the boom
nntil rayed role n'elock. when Mr.. Garbre,
daughter made the discovery. Pursuit being
made by the police, the nogroes, named Wit.
Liam Richards, and Alexander Anderson, were
arrested. They are residente of Lancaster,
and have long been known as thieves—spend-
Mg the greater pectin of their time ia the .
county prison. When searched upward. of
$9O in gold and silver was found upon their
persons, which amount corresponds with that
which Mr. Garber says was in the pozsession
of his wife. They were also seen in and a•
round the premises by Meson. Geist, Knelt
mau, Buckwalter and other neighbors of Mr. I
Gather. There in no doubt that the object of
the murderers was to get possession of the mon•
ey said to be in the house.
There was also considerable blood upon
their clothing. The evidence against them is
of such a character as to leave no doubt of
thei , guilt. The feeling against the murder
ere was so great while they were undergoing
examination, that fears were entertained the
excited crowd would inflict summary ven•
geance upon them. A few momenta, how.
I ever, served to calm the excitement and the
i officers were allowed to convey them to prin.
, ei without let or hindrance.

WALK., Tea FILLIBUSTIeIt.--Walker. the fit
libuster, who, it will be recollected, took his de-'
parture from Mobile Buy on the 13th ult., in
the steamship Fashion, landed at Punta Arena'
in Nicaragua. on the all of November, with
ISO men. The United Stateasloopool-war Sur-
atop, was lying in the harbor, and the
passed tirder her stern at full speed, with only'
ten men on deck, and betore any suspicion was !
entertained as to the character of the Fashion,
or the company she had on board, landed her
men at the Transit Company's wharf at Punta
Arenas, opposite l3reytown. After acct. pl
ing this feat, the Fashion, it would ROOM, wan
suffered to steam out of the harbor with as lit- !
tae interruption from the Saratoga as she had
met within steaming in. She proceeded to
Aspinwall to take in coal. Such is the account
of the affair given by those on board the Fault..
ion. It is further stated that Commodore Paul. !
ing, lying at Aspinwall in the frigate Wabash,
overhauled the Fashion, but finding her papers
regular, omitted to seise her. The British and
American naval forces had sailed from Aspin-
wall for San Juan, and would very probably
take part in the scenes, in that vicinity, or at
least prevent the landing of any more fillibus•
tern. It was supposed that the difficulties be.

resort to hostile measures. Walker, from pre•

chance to befriend him, .d neglecting to pro•
vide beforehand the means neeessay to }teem

years, than Texas. Her estimated population
at this time amounts to more than half a mil.

be found sufficient to entitle the State to nix or
