His 'Majesty midi •
• GENTLEMEN—In 'receivingJyott here on
foreign territory, far distant from theGermau
frontier, I am prompted toe:press my grati
tude, to that Providence whose wonderful
disitiensation has brought us together in this
anefent royal residence. God has given us
victories which we hardly dared to hope or
to .ttak for. • When; last summer, I asked
youtifapport in this great war, you gave me
that support to its fullest extent. I thank
you in my name and in that of the army and
The victorious armies among which you
have sought me have found in the sacrificing
spirit of the country encouragement and sup
port amid battles and privations.
The means voted for the continuation of
the4ar bylhe late Diet have given'a new
proof that the nation Is determined to exert'
all its energies. The political life of the Ger ,
mans will develop Itself ail the more-because
the basis offered to the South German allies
is of their own free choice. I hope those
States yet to be consulted will follow the
same path. _
The summons add • - - resSed to me by the
King of Bavaria to re-establish the imperial
dignity of theancient German empire' as
deeply moved me, and not my own feelings
nor even my own Judgment have determin
ed my decision only. In the unanimous
voice of. the German Princes, the free cities
and the German natia, . I can recognize a
call of Providence, which I can obey with
(;ad's blessing. 'The King of Bavaria has
informed me that the assent of;= all the Ger
man Princes and free Cities hasibeen secured,
arid that the official ratification will shortly

which we are undergoing and which touch

•unanimous assent to the treaties giving or
ganic. expression to the unity,of theriation.
s+O M E genius; With a taste for the curious'
infacts and the supernatpral, in specu
lation, has made the following discoveries of
tbe.wonderful powers of the letter M. Mar.
bcef was to first to recognize' he genius of
Napoleon I. atthelllilitary . Colleg,e. Maren
go was the first great battle won by General
Ifimaparte, and Melas.made room for him in
Italy.. Monier was one of his best generals; 1.
Moreau betrayed him, and Murat was-the
first martyr to his cause. Marie Louise
shared his highest fortunes; Moscow was the
abyss of ruin into which he felL 111etternich-,
vanquished him in the fieht diplomacy.!
Six Apar:duds '(Massena, Mother, Marmont, ,
Macdonald,_Murat, Moneey,) and twenty 7 sixi
generals of division under Napoleon 1. had
the letter - "M" for their initial.
-::: 4, 3carat, Puke of Bassano, was the m
trusted counsellor: His first battle was that
of 4Ontenotte, his last Mont St. Jean, as the
French term Waterloo. He .won the battles
of Milesino, Mondovi, Moutmirail. and Mintz
terdau, then came the Storming of Mont ,
martre. Miladwas the first enemy's capital, -
and'MoscOW the last; into which lie marched
victorious. He lost Egypt through Melton,
and employed.Miollis to take Pius VII.Ws,-
oder. Mallet conspirthl against him ; Murat
wie the first to desert him, then Marmom.
Three of Ids ministers were :%taret, Monta
livet and :Utica ; higfirst chamberlain was
MonterqUieu. His last- halting-place was
Malmaison. He surrendered to Capt. Mait
land, of the Bellerophon, and his companions
iir St. Helena were Montholon and his valet
Marcia-Ind. ~.
f we turn to the career °fills nephew,
Napoleon .111., we find 7 flicsame letter no
less prominent, and - it is said that the captive
of „Wilhehnshohe attaches even greater im
portance to its mystic influence than did his
uncle. His empress was a Countess Mon
t ijo ; his greatest friend /*WS' Morny. The
taking of Malakoff and 'the Mamelon-vert
Were the exploits of .the Crimean war, pecu
liarly Fremth. He planned his first battle
of the Italian campaign at Marengo,. al
though it was not fought Until .after the en
gagement of Montebello, at Magenta. Mac-I
Mahon, for his important services in this
battle, was named. the Duke of Magenta, as
Pelliss.ier had fora shinier merit received the
title . of Duke - of. Malakoff_ Napoleim 1 11.
then made. his entry into Milan; and drove
the Austrians out of Marignano.
' Alter the fearful battle on the Mincio of
Solfjrino lie turned back before the walls of.
Mantua. Thus up to 1859, since when the
letter M would'.stern to- have been ominous
'of evil. Passing over Mexico and Maximil
ian we see . , how vain have been his hopes,
founded. on threa M's of the present war 7--
Marhal MacMahon, Count Montauban and
lie'3l itrailleuse MaYence was to have been
the - lia.sig-;for thf further operations of the
French army, but;:pushed back first to the
•Moselle, its doom was seaf&l on the. Meuse,
at Sedan. Lastly,' we have to notice the fall
of Metz; and all theselate disasters are ow
lug to another 3 . 1; which is inimical to the
third Napoleon, and this is.a capital M
Moltke. •
TII mu: being nodoubt that Paris is doonl-1
ed to suffer the ettretnest horrors of a iege;
the details of former sieges which it us en-1
dured may prove interesting. The ti 't siege'
(bites back to , fifty-three years fore the
Christian era. .The - whole of Pavia wits then`
embeaced.itr the! island known to-day as Lai
Cite. LAMENUS, the chief lieutenant of
Julius C.:Esen, then havihg possession of
the banks of the Seine,' was about to attack I
the city. • he Parisians foreseeing theina- i
possibility of defending it, burned their;
hotises and retired to the neighboring hills,;
where a sharp engagement was at once be- - I
gun. The Parisians spread death in the en-i
miles' legiOns, and fought with alesperate 1
valor, but Were forced to yield to the superi- I
or numbers and skill of the Romans. The;
Romans kept possession of Paris - 4pr five.:
hundred and thirty years, antreularged it ,
on both banks of the river. ,
• In 465 CHILD ERIC, the first son of l'ilEno-
NEN, chief of the Franks, drove the Romans :
.out. In 345 the Normans, attracted by the
wealth of the•capitali .of its churches, and
of its monastei:tes / Sell upon the city, burned
and sackedit. ' .41 , 856 these same Normans
-again advanced upon Paris. Thelnhabi
tants burned and abandoned it. .In 861 the
Normans- took .it .again; but as they had
already sacked it twice, they found no booty.
Worn out by so many defeats, the Parisians'.
about this time began to Surround their city
with towers and fortifications. The walls
were still unfinished—when the Norman
hordes, numbering oVer -- 31f,000 men; once
more sat down in front of the city.. The Pa
risians defended it with a tenacity ,Which
the Normans could not shake. • The siege
lasted more than a year (885--887).. The Nor
mans disheartened at the length of the siege,
were just about to withdraw, when Cue - W.138
the •Fat ordered a Sag of truce tote hung
out, and at once signed the most shaineful
capitulation on record, without consulting
the citizens. For this he was afterward de
poser._ .
_ .
the Dauphin attempted to besiege
Paris, but was repulsed. In . 1869 the King
of Englan I attempted it, and was equally
unsuccessful. In .142,.Paris was vaptdrud by:
the English, who held it sixteen years. In
n ARLES VII. atterllpted , to take It, be
the English - repulsed - In 1436 the
French • retook it. In 1462 We Duke of
Burgundy managed to pillage the outskirts.
of the city, but Was driven back. 1111464 the
Count of CitAnoLms,"tifter edrrounding the
r.,saulteti it unsuccesSfully several
tiLuts..- In 1536 . the walls of Paris repelled
the army of CuAlmts V. In 1598, during
the reign' of the third and fourth HENitvs,
the city under Went a blockade famous in
history._ And lastly, on the 31st of March,
1814, the'lgates of Paris were treacherously
opened to-the alliednrmies.
. ThepreSent is therefore the sixteenth
siege which- Paris has witnessed since her
foundation: • •
VAntors suggestions have lately been ad
vanced to explain the delay of the Gerrnami
in bombarding Paris We have - never be
lieved that It was the purpce of Von Moltke
to waste powder in any such undertaking;'
anti the statement now forwarded that a- de
lay of a month will .be necessary, confirms •
the belief that the demand of the German:
press for the bombardment is to be answered
by specious prom is only. .Before another
month has passel!. Paris may haste fallen,
helples,.pf its own weight. A cornispen
dent Nr,}4e is fanilliar with Paris • and its re
sources, and who unquestionably hat trust
worthy. sources :of information, telegraphs
:that the city is on the poiN of starvation,
that fuel is nearly' exhausted, and that the
end eannot be long delayed. It is the-te
sign of the French - leaders be say's; to make
ohe more sortie ; _ if it fails,. the city will be.
surrendered.. The facts, on which there
opinions are based are not given: neverthe
less, all Indications for - weeks past point to
them as reasonable if not correct conclusions.

Social Honor.—Every person should culti
vate 'a nice sense of honor; In a hundred dif
ferentways this most fitting sdjutict of a true
ladyOr gentleman is often tried. For instance,
one is the guest of a family where, perhaps, the
domestic machinery does not run smoothly.
Thereti sorrow in' the house unsuspected hy,
the outer world. Sometimes it is - a dissiriated
son, whose conduct is a shame and .a grief. t
his parents; sometimes a relative, whose ecceti
tr4eities.and peculiarities aro.a cloud on the
hollr.p. Or, worst °fall, husband and wife may
not bia-In accord', and there may be .often bitter
words spbiken, anki tarsh recriminations, In'
onv of Ilieseiasotif the guest honor bound
to be blind and titztf, so fur as people without
are concerned. If a gentle word within can do
any good, it may well ho said; but to go forth
and reveal the shadow of - ttskunhappy secret to
anv one, even your nearest friend, is-an act of
inaelieacv and meanness alinost"uriparalleled.
Onee in. die sacred precincts of any ,botnoOsd
milted. to its privacy, sharing its, life,' that
yon see and heir is a sacred trust. It Ii u
really contemptible togossiti of such things Is
it wo.tild be to steal the silver, or borrow the
honks Utiti forget to return them.-

ANNA DICKINSON.—We are permitle:l to

much all Anna Dickinson from beginikto l z Gt

last evening on Joan'D'Ark, or, as she ::lys it

But the lecture!, ,It Is simply magnificent, and
HS Well adapted for the masses, perhaps, as
- Amite of the other lectures, but as a work of art,
as a literary effort, as specimen of matchless
oratory, it waSjust sn'perb. I wantetito fall at
her feet and kiss the Tery hem of her garment.
It seemed so :fitting that she,-the wondrous
maiden of the Nineteenth contuu--should
come, lattrel-ctowned, herself, and pant for us
the portrait of her sister spirit of•the Fifteenth.
All the while she was speaking I"kept drawing
parallels between the.two. It was only when
she came to' the trial's the dungeon, the
scaffold, the fiery crown of martyrdom, that the

the.aaniversary of Uri:q . t. birth by n•religieus
:.erv,iee. •
A . question, however., which has-beeti lot g
and eagerly agitated, is here broughtfurwaru.
Is the :nth of December really the-day on which
our Saviour first showed himself iniumian form
in the manger at Petbleheth? The evidence
which we possess regarding the date isnot only
traditional, bnt likewise conflicting and Con
fused.- In the earliestperiods at which we have
any reeerd orthe oliseryance'of Christinas, we
that some communities of Christians - - (vie.:
brated the ft stival on the Ist or dth of January ;
others on the 29th of March, the time. of the
Jewish Pissiover •, while others, it is said, ob-
Served it on the f2lith of September, or Feast of
Tabernacles. There can beno doubt, however,
that long before the reign of Censtantine, in the
fourth century, the season orthe New Year had
Ines adopted AA the period for celefiratingellie
Nativity, though a difference in this_ respect
'existed in.the practice of the Eastern and West
ern Chin - eh - es, the forinmeffieserving the 6th of
Jamiary, and the hatter the Ltith of becember.
The custom of flee Western Church at last pre
vailed, and both of•the ecclesiastical bodies
agreed to hold the anniversary. on .the wine
I fay. The fixing of the date appears to have.
been the net of Julius - I:, ivho presided
'X' its-roNi
or bishop of Home, from 437 to ,2 A. The • '
circumstance is doubted by blosheim, but is
confirmed by St. Chrysestrim, who died lit the
beginning of file titlh century., This celebrated
'father of the church informs us, in one of his
epistles, thud Julius, on the 'sollthatieri of St.
Cyril of Jerusalem, caus ! ..4l strict inquiries to
. be made on the subject, and• thereafter, follow
ing what seemed to. - bel the best, authenticated
tradition, settled .authoritatively the 25th -of
December as the, anniversary of ('pr'int's birth,
rte. **Pet:term onmiutn mietropolim," as it is
,ylefi by Chrysostom. ' It is true, indeed, Unit
' wane have reprktientfal this fixing of the day to
have been accomplished' by St. Telesphorus,
Who %VAN - bishop of Rome 125-139 A. D.,but the
authority for the assertion is. very . oubtful.
Towards the elose of the second century, we
tin-1 a notice of the observant.° of Christmas in
the reign of the EmPerer CommOdus ; and
aibont a hundred years afterwards, in- the time
of I qoelesian, an atrociouslict of cruelty is re
em led of the last-pained emperor, Who caused
a church in, Nies - nut:dia. i where the Christians'
wer7" celebrating the Nativity, to hi' set on fire,
and by barring every' means of egress frit% the
building, made all the .Worshippers perish in
the names. 'Since the end of the fourth century
at least, time 2:ith of Deeember has been nm-
Pe - nily observed as the anniversary of the
Nativity by all the nations ofThristendom.
At present, Christunts-d" if somewhat
shorn of its ancient glories, land unmarked by
that boisterous jollity:Ma exuberance Of animal
spirits which distinguished it in the - time of
our ancestors, is; nevertheless, still the holiday:
in which of all others throughout the Year, all
classes of English society most generally par
ticipate. Partaking of a religious character, the
forenoon of the day is usually passed in church,
- and in the evening the: re-united members of
the family assemble around- the joyous Christ
new-board. Separated its many of th6sa , are.
during the rest - of the year, they all make an
effort to 'meet together round the. Christmas-
hearth., The hallowed.fpelings of domestic love
.and attaehmeht the [deluging remembrance of
- the past, and the joyous anticipation of the
future, all cluster round these family-gatlier

Christmas carols are sung on Christmas -Eve
as well as on the morning. of Christmas-day,
and indeed the former is regarded by many HS
the more appropriate occasion. Theu the ctior
,isters, attached to the village church make their
rounds to the principal houses throughout the
paris:-., and :sing some Ail those simple and
touching hymns. The airs to slibieti'tbey are
sung are frequently no less plaintiveand melo
dious than the nerds, ,and are often wenn
!. snied by instruments. The writer retains a
vivid recollection of carol whicklbe heard
sung, iratia
agx, on Christmas Eve by a
detachment . of this 'choir, In front of a
ecnntry bongo inMevorishire, where be was at
the Hine ,a visitor. The sweet and pathetic
inelody„;Which was both retnarkabiy well sung
and played, the pictures ueness of the group
. of singers, whose persons were only 'rendered
visible, in the darkness at the night. by the
light of one or two-lanternifwhich they carried,
and the novelty and general interest of the
scene, all produced an impression Which was
never to be forgotten.. i,Msese Christmas-eve
carols are very general ip Devonshire, and the
usual custom fee the singers is ki club the
money which they receive on such.necasions,
_and expend - it in a social merry-niaking on
-Twelfth Day, a fortnight afterwarda.
