For the second or third time we re
publish in, "The Mariettian," Professor
Moose's charniing poem : "The Night

repeating every Christtnas morn.
We also again find room for the parody
on Prof. Migire's piediced - titled " The
Night after Chrietmas." They have
both become inseparably associated
with Christman times, and which are al

young. We also add this time a very
neat cut from Johnson's Type Foundry,
of St. Nicholas just entering a chimney.

His eyes how they tainkled, his dimples

His cheeks were like roses, his nose like

His droll little month was drawn op

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his

On Christriass Eve the bells were rung ;
On Christmas Eve the mass was'sting ;
That only night, in all the year,
Saw the stoled priest- the chalice rear.
The damsel donned her kittle sheen,
The hall was dressed with holly green ;
Forth to the wood did merry men go,
To gather in the retitle too.
Then opened wide the baron's hall
To vassel, tenant; serf, and all:
Power laid his rod of rule aside,
And Ceremony doffed his pride.
And brought blithe Christmas back
The heir, with roses in hie shoes,
That night might village partner choose ;
The lord, underogating, share
The vulgar game of "pot and pair."
All hailed with uncontrolled delight,
And general voice, the happy night,

Brought tidings of salvation down.

And all the baiting ofthe boar.

Garnished with ribbons, blithely trowls ;

At such high-tide, her savoury goose.
Then came the merry maßquers in,
And carols roared with blithesome din:
If unmelodious was the song,
It was a hearty note and strong
White shirts supplied the masquerade,
And smutted cheeks the visor's made ;
