An Account of the Battle ot Inkerman. 
• ••••*• 

A little after 3, on the morning of Sun- 
day the 5th, when a heavy fog shrouded 
everything from view, the various garri- 
sons of the redoubts at Balaklava were 

roused out by the noise of large masses of 
troops approaching. This lime scouts 
were instantly seot out, and returned with 
the intelligence that a large army was niov-

.and adjoin- 

ing against them, though it was impossible 
to nay on what point the attack would be 
directed. The fog and darkness were so 
dense, that it was quite impossible to dis- 
ttnguish anything ten feet below the battery. 
Yet still the noise round the hill continued. 
I have already described the high, steep 
hill facing the battery? and overlooking it. 
No one suspected, or believed it possible 
that the enemy could get guns up this in a 
single night, so the place had been but lit- 
tle regarded. Yet it was from this spot 
that the Russians opened the fire from 
about ten guns, full on the two gun battery, 
and the light and 2d divisions, which lay 
about half a mile in the rear. The instant 
the cannonade began, and the first emo- 
tions of utter astonishment and surprise 
were passed, the 55ih picket kept close 
under the earthwork of the battery, and 
the shot flew over them, doing but litt.e 
injury. The enemy had. some way or an- 
other, managed to get up their guns during 
the night, but having to point them in the 
dark and fog. took but a blind aim, yet ne- 
vertheless their shot and shell tlew in all 
directions for the space ot nearly twenty 
minutes, while the cannonade in rear of the 
line at Balaklava was also redoubled, so 
th:it seemed impossible to say which would 
prove the true, and whieh the feiut MtMat, 

The 55th, true to their post, again met 
them at the point of the bayonet; and driv- 
ing the enemy back for a moment, seemed 
as if they would still keep the battery in 
• pite of the awful odds against them ; but, 
at last, the mere weight of the enemy's 
masses began to prevail, and the 55th, af- 
ter more than two-thirds of the picket lay 
dead around, retired from the battery. 

It was now nearly 7 o'clock. Most of 
the troops in the English camp were mov- 
ing up to the scene of action. I say most 
of the troops, for the fire was still so hot 
in the rear and on the left, toward Sevas- 
topol, that it was thought necessary to keep 
strong reserves to meet any emergency 
that might arise. Though it was daylight 
the fog still hung so thick that it was im- 
possible to distinguish anything correctly, 
unless actually wjth the troops in action, 
it was impossible to see how the battle was 
going. I went twice into action with our 
regiments, in the hope of seeing things 
more distinctly, but I am willing to con- 

when Canrobert came up with three regi- 
ments of Zouaves, five regiments of r'rench 
infantry, and a strong force of artillery, 
and commenced a terrible attacked on the 
enemy's right flank. 

This occurred at about 11 o'clock, and 
from that moment the Russian chance was 
hopeless. Yet, though under the French 
fire they were laterally falling by battali- 
ons, they never showed the least signs 
of trepidation or disorder. On the contra- 
ry, they formed up in the most beautiful 
order, altered their frpji; so as lo meet the 
attack of the French, and, extending their 
line to the left, prepared to resume their 
attack upon the English. At that 
however, our men were w*ll prepared, and 
without any order or arrangement, fiuug 
themselves head long upon the enemy, 
charging with the bayonet. The Russians 
charged with the bayonet also, and for the 
space of live minutes the 30th, 41st, 49th, 
88th, and six or seven Russian regiments, 
were stabbing, beating and firing at each

or whether they were both true or both 
feints. The latter opinion was adopted 
by many, who said that the enemy would 
never dare to attack us in our entrench- 
ments, but rather distract our attention 
while a sortie was made from the town 
upon the trenches. As jf to confirm this 
surmise, the instant the cannonade in the 
rear r* -commenced, all forts, redoubts and 
batteries around Sevastopol, opened with J^T* OU f_ v , 011 
a tremendous roar, which seemed to shake 
the earth. 

The scene at this moment was awful. — 
The whole camp, except to the sea. seem- 
ed encircled by lire, as flash after flash lit 
up the foggy air in all directions. The 
uproar was perfectly deafening, and both 
sidts Tiring shell, increased the din two- 
fold. The shower of these terrible explo- 
sives, which rained into the camp like hail, 
baffles description. No place was safe 
from them. They killed men and tore the 
tents to pieces on places which we had 
hitherto considered as utterly out of range. 
Every minute or so you were compelled 
t   throw yourself upon your face, as the 
terrible missile came roaring through the 
air, and pitching within a few yards, sent 
its fragments humming over the spot where 
you crouched close to the earth. For 
about ten minutes, the stunning noise, con- 
fusion, and incessant bursting of shell, 
made ihe whole place seemed perfectly 
unearthly. The horror of the scene was 
increased by the obscurity of the morning. 
It was not six o'clock ; Uie darkness and 
fog were still thick, and through the heavy 
air the broad red flashes of the gun* and 
their tremendous reports, seemed ten limes 
louder than ever. For all thai could be 
seen or told 10 the contrary, the Russian 
batteries seemed within fifty yards of you 
 »n all sides. Of course the troops remained 
under arms, but did not attempt to move ; 
every one knew that before the real attack 
commenced, the artillery would tease, and 
the sharp, crackling fire of musketry be- 
gin. Until that was heard, there was sjaj 
knowing on which of the three points the 
enemy intended to advance. The report 
of the muskets was therefore anxiously 
listened lor, and it soon was heard. 

The instant the men of the 55th were 
enabled lo hear what was moving in their 
own immediate neighborhood, the noise of 
an immense bodv of men advancing was 
heard close upon the batteries. The picket 
instantly prepared to defend the place, and 
then, in the hour of need, the great detj- 
ciem-es of ihe battery were discovered. — 
In the first place it had no guns; and in 
the second place no steps were made to en- 
able the infanlry |a |fsj over its hi»h para- 

The instant the Russians caught sight 
of the battery through the fog, though 
they seemed utterly spent by their exer- 
tions in climbing the hill, they rushed for- 
ward with a dash we hardiy gave them 
credit for. Nothing daunted bv the im- 

The rattle of the musketry was deafen- 
ing. The incessant volleys tho and effects 
of the file firing dispersed the fog, but re- 
placed it with the thick while smoke of 
gunpowder, which hid everything equally 
well. At this time the enemy, who were 
losing ten men to our one, showed no signs 
of giving away. On the contrary, they 
advanced towards the wall, firing volleys 
with as much coolness and regularity as if 
on parade. I am bound to say no troops 
could have behaved more splendidly than 
the Russians. They appeared utterly in- 
sensible to the fear of anything but a 
charge. When threatened with that, as I 
have said before they dispersed in all di- 

About this time our batteries of artillery 
came holly into the fight against the ene- 
mies' battery on the hill, which was doing 
us a considerable amount of mischief. — 
Under the splendid management of Gen. i 
Stiangwavs, tlw y soon so far turned the j 
fortune of the day as to leave their infant- ' 
ry attacking ours beyond the wall, entire- 
ly without support. Advantage was in- 
stantly taken of the change to advance the 
the t£0lh and 4th regiments to the right, 
for the purpose of re-taking the two gun I 
battery. These two regiments spendidly 
upheld the fime of thtt Knglish tfOOfW. — j ^" tS 
In spite of the tremendous cross-fire, they 
advanced at the point of the bayonet, and 
as they neared the battery, poured in MM 
ev and charged.

In less 

than a minute the Russians were driven 
out. with fearful loss. Yet, hardly were 
they clear of the battery, when the Rus- 
sians rallied again, and returning round the 
spot, poured in volley after volley in- 
to the c-luinns of the 'ioth and 47th, and 
at the same time the Russian artillery re- 
opened  m the battery in such a manner as 
neither friend nor foe could hold it. Un- 

dead and 

wounded Knglish, French and Russians, 
lay upon the heights, ami the groans and 
screams of agony were rising up from all 
Alma was a mere skirmish to It. — 
What made tin; scene worse was, that the 
Russians from the ships in the harbor and 
the fortification to the north were throwing 
in a perfect storm of shell all over the field, 
killing their own and our wounded. 

Napolkon's Prkdiction. — The follow- 
ing is the oft-quoted prediction of Napoleon 
in one of his recorded conversations at St. 
Helena : 

••In the course of a few \ears Russia 

will have Constantinople, the greatest part 
der these circumstances the 20lh and 47lh of Turkey, and all (ireece. France, fc^ng-

cred all in the place. The battery itself, 
and all its approaches, were now covered 
with English and Russian corpses and 
wounded. The latter were few in the ex- 
treme, as whenever the enemy occupied 
the contested post thrv baynnelted all our 
fellows who gave the least sign of life. — 
This is no battle-field rumor, but a fact, for 
the truth of which I can myself vouch; for 
later in the day when the battle seemed 
ooing against us. I saw the Russians kill- 
ing the wounded who remained on their 
part of the ground.

inense disparity of numbers, the 55th 
waited till they closed within ten feet, and 
then gave one tremendous volley, which 
stretched 200 of the enemy in the dust ; 
and then eaeh man, loading and liring as 
fast as he could, kept up an incessant dis- 
charge of ruusketrv upon each Russian as 
he approached. The Russians halted for 
a moment, and then, with wonderful cour- 
age, rallied up and returned a close and 
deadly fire. In less than five minutes 
they again attempted to storm the battery. 
In an instant they rushed on, and poured 
over its hands and embrazures in overpow- 
ering numbers. There was a moment of 
desperate struggle, during which our gal-

was but a moment, and in the next they 
had repulsed the attack and preserved the 

But it was in vain our fellows displayed 
all this courage — the enemy already out-

and fresh masses were coming up every 
minute. A perfect semi-circle of fire from 
small arms raged round the battery, and 
our men fell by dozens, as, from the want 
of a proper place to fire from, they were 
compelled to expose themselves at the em- 
brazures before they could return a shot. 
Their numbers diminished every instant, 
while those of the enemy increased. Sud- 
denly the Russians made another charge,

In the 1'. 6. Senate, December 11, 1854, 

on the subject of Naturalization. 
Mr. Adams, in pursuance of previous no- 
tion* asked and obtained leave to introduce 
the follow ing bill ; which was read a first 

He it enacted. 4" r » That from and after 
the passage of this act, no alien shall be 
admitted to become a citizen of the Tuited 
States, unless he shall, at the time of his 
application to be admitted, declare and 
prove, to the satisfaction of the court hav- 

familiar with our government and laws, as I eiples set forth in the remarks I have quo- 
they still do in the South. This is not the j ted are the same that are contained in this 
case now in the North and the Northwest, bill, except that twenty-one years' resi- 
Ttiey come to the northern States at the dence is substituted for an etnire repeal, 
rate of nearly half a million a year ; they Reflection, and further examination of the 
come in communities of hundreds and subject, has produced the change indicated 
thousands. Many remain in your cities ■ hy the bill. When I learned the indignity 
and become servants and waiters ; others, ; offered to Senator Douglas by a German 
more enterprising, po to the West* rn States | mob, I determined to introduce this bill, 
and settle up neighborhoods and counties j Since I gave notice of my intention to in-

this day, would never have been ktrown. 
Then if we neglect legislation proper and 
necessary for the protection of those who 
shall come after us — both as to country 
and laws — are we not recreant to the high 
trust reposed in us i Mr. Jefferson said : 
"Civil government being the sole object 
of forming societies, its administration must 
be conducted by common consent. Every 
species of government has its specific prin- 
ciples. Ours, perhaps, are more peculiar 
than those of any other in the universe.

this countrv is one of higher moment ; the 
true danger lies in the improper use ofthe 
ballot-box. I ask Senators to cast their

a single mind, selecting for us our most 
important officers. See the riots and mobs

Kentucky New Era.— Some of our readers are 

aware, that there is published at ..exinglon, in this 
State, a newspaper under the title of "Kentucky 
New Era;" that it is the "organ" of the Grand Di- 
vision, S of T , of Kentucky ; that the Grand Di- 
vision elects and pays the Edit-r ; and that it also 
(we presume to superintend and control the 
of the paper) a Publishing Committee. At 
as we learn from the paper itself. Rev. L. 
L P mertoh, M. D., is the Editor; and Rev. H. 
■ K*VA\AVGfH. M. D. McIIekrt, Esq , Mr Ed- 
w*«d Oi.twA*. Mr Thomas B. Posey, John Rod- 
mas, Esq , and Rev. John G. Bruce, are the Pub- 
luting Committee. And we hope the reader will 
bear«his in mind ; otherwise it might be supposed, 
• hat the article we copy from it to-day, and which 
its ormcipal "leader" for the 27th ultimo, 
ed from the braii. of some besotted ine- 
briate, who had so long indulged in intemperance, 
and wallowed in the mud and filth of gutters, that his 
mind, ss will as his clothing snd person, in these 
Christmas times, had become so imbued wiih filth 
that his pen and tongue were but conduit pipes, thro' 
which it passed, to infect the moral atmosphere.- 
It may be. however, that some outsider, in the ab- 
sence of tkr Editor, or by imposing upon his Christian 
.imposition, prepared the editorial matter for the issue 
of the 27th : tor we cannot conceive that a Minister 
of the Gospel ot the meek and lowly Lamb op Gn 0 -

to cast imputations upon the sincerity of our tem- i -The American Organ, (the "Know-Noth- 
perance principles, is so illiberal and contemptible, j i„g" paper at Washington) states anew 

I and more clearly, the great reason why 
the Know-Nothings are opposed to Mr. 
Seward : 

"We have much sironger grounds of 
opposition to Mr. Seward than his non-oc- 
cr.rrence in our views on the question of 
foreignisin. Mr. Seward has not taken the 
front rank among our opponents on this 
last named question. Others have taken 
the front seats on this question, aud have 
continually helched forth lire and fury upon 
us, as 'intolerants,' &c. Mr. Seward's al- 
lies. Pierce, Forney, and editors of The 
Richmond Enquirer and Pennsylvania!), 
occupy higher seats than Seward on this 
question. Had we no other reason for op- 
position to Seward, it would, indeed, be 
enough that he opposes our doctrines. But 
we have other reasons. And here let us 
ask The Tribune of what avail would it be 
io change the laws of naturalization, or to 
repeal them, if the Union is to be destroyed 
by such men as Seward, Chase, and Sum- 
ner ? If at the same that we get rid of evils 
of foreign influence and of indiscriminate 

that were it not that the New Era circulates at a dia 
tance, no notice would be taken of it. Here, where 
we are known, we have ever been regarded as an ul- 
tra temperance man ; and personally and editori- 
ally we were earnestly advocating the cause of total 
abstinence, and the suppression of the liquor traffic 
when some of the zealots who are now ranting 
about the evils of intemperance were notorious 
drunkards, contending with swine for the street gut- 
ters. Men. years ago, stopped taking the paper, on- 
ly because of its temperance principles; and because 
those principles were advocated bv us, a Democratic 
committee, in an address to the people of this Con-

our paper should not influence their minds, that we 
were "a Son of Temperance ; opposed to the licens

the Maine liquor law." — Thelast item was incorrect 
— «c never were in favor of the Maine liquor law, — 
its stringency will not suit the republican feeling of 
the West; but we were, we now are, and expect 
ever to l«e. in favor of a la v suppressing the liquor

and talen-ed mnnagemcnt. to people, are fair examples of the adage which rcpre- 

ance Convention, seems to have been a sure shot in 
a vital spot. Thai article placed the/nr.'s before the 
people; it stripped off the veil from the action of the 
zealots, snd showed that less than one-third of the 
representative ralio of the State had wrested n great 
moral question from its natural position, and thrown it 
into the slough of partizan contest, to be contamina- 
ted and degraded by the praise and denunciation of c " n 
demagogues. To draw off attention, lest "the rclia 
ble friends of temperance," in considering the m;.t 
ter. would come to comprehend the aim and object 
of thaw who were so zealous of ihrowinc the tern 

The Tablks Turned.— Jt was not long 
sine? that certain zealous adherents of Mr. 
Pierce held a court-martial at Washington 
upon the Know-Nothings. They sentenc- 
■ ed them to political excommunication, and 
even inflicted the capital punishment of ex- 
pulsion from office upon a few clerks sus- 
pected of this heinous heresy. 

The Massachusetts Whigs and the New 
Vork Free Soilers have been so imprudent 
as to denounce the invisible invincibles 
with great severity. 

The wanton ahuse of power is often 
punished by some moral retaliation. In this 
nation of all thai will not bow to it ;— a spirit which case we learn that the American party has 

sents the hot-headed and fiery ze„l of young con- 
verts, who, in their anxiety to make up tor their bit- 
ter opposition before, or to ensure their adherence to 
i be cause they have newly espoused, rush madly 
ahead ; but their zeal is without knowledge— without 
reason. To this class the .New Era and its backers 
seem to belong. The spirit they manifest is such as 
in earlier ages of the world, conceived the papal In- 
quisition, and invented fiendish instruments of tor- 
ture to change opinions and convert souls; chained 
martyrs to the sink. , and applied ilie torch to the fag- 
gots around them.— With such a spirit, our feeling 
milaie. It is the spirit of fierce denun- 

demands a blind adherence to its behesis;— n spirit 
whose worshippers are biggotted zealots that endea- 
vor to make converts and carry out their aims by question into politics, the "organ" of the force. With such a spirit we cannot fellowship -- 

With such a spirit, however, it seems, that the New 
Era and its backers naturally assimilate.

The C onvention. -The impi.ipricty of throwing 
ihe temperanee question into the political arena, and 
the impol   y of nominating candidates to be voted 
for only as temperance men, we have beretof  re dis- 
. u-.-td Our arguments and conclusions have not 
bet ti answered or refuted. It is useless, at this time, 
io refer io those ques'ions. Hut, how was the deter- 
mination of the committee to consider the propriety 
of nominating candidates arrived at ? Was there, 
■ r no', a little underhanded nin.eEtivreit'g to decide 
the  :uestion 7 How was it that the names of those 
who were nominated by ihe Convention, were bruin d 
about by speaker?- before the BMMhtN leponcd them 
to the Convention ? Thttewas.of course, no attempt 
at lores'olling and forcing iliin.s by storm f I);dnot 
Hqf. w mjuum himself, doubt the propriety of a nc- 
lniuatioin f Aud j- not that the he to  k time for 
. oiiMderatioi: ? V\ as. Sff was m l. some an.xioua for 
• lie iiotninaiion ol candidates, because their btjtt of

excitem. n; ! — as by ihe effervescence of all bodies 
the Iroih i= thrown up M 'lie '''P ■ 

determined to make their great measures 
of reformation thorough and impartial. — 
They have determined to rehuke political 
Catholicism, Alienism, Abolitionism, Sec- 
tionalism, Nullification and Distmionism, 
but also the party manners of the nation. 
The St. I.ouis Republican says that a canon 
to this effect has bet n interpolated upon the 
Know-Nothing creed at the late Conven- 
tion at Cincinnati, to the effect : That no 
nomination shall ever be made of any man 
for office who is attached to any of the 
sectional or ultra parlies into which the 
c untry is divided. 

Vi e have no doubt that there will be an 
universal anxiety amonsjst politicians to 
qualify themselves for olhce under the new 
authority by renouncing all partv allegi- 
ance, and eillier professing themselves to 
belong to the Know-Nothings, or no party 
at all.

Senatorial Canvass of 1853.— \\  have pre- 
pared a reply to the New Era's illiberal reference to 
the canvass for Senator in this district in 1853 ; but 
lack of space prevents its insertion this week. We 
will give it in our nert issue. In the meantime, w« 
can assure the New Era, that the gentleman it desig- 
nates "ihe whisky candidate" is the peerof Rev. L- 
L. Pikeettoiii, orsny and all those who may endorse

The Washington Star contains a joke 
worth noticing. A young couple came to 
that city a few days ago to be married. 
The prospect of a merry Christmas, how- 
ever, overcame the discretion of the bride- 
groom, and he got drunk. Worse than all 
he lost his licen* somewhere in the vicin- 
ity of North Market, and after a fruitless 
search for the "last cup of bliss," the 
taunts and jeers of the boys drove the 
young couple to a retreat somewhere in 
the suburbs of the citv, no doubt much to 
the chagrin of the bride. "Many a slip."

of y»n peaceful stream .

thoughis through a peareful dream ; 
_ the winds sweep by with a sdvery sigh. 
0 'er the rich, unfolding Bowers. 
And the wild bird sangeth Its awcetest song. 

In our beautiful lorest bowers, 
Thst stand* all mantled in glorious green, 
Round this village home of oura. 

Toe mountain darkens the river's breast, 

Nub ita shining robes of green. 
And tar. tsr down in the watar'e depih. 

Ita shadow is dimly seen ; 
With the cedar spreading its boughs afar. 

And the willow drooping low. 
Just lightly touching the sparkling waves. 

As onwsrd thev softly go. 

naif ij»n»'««"y Mftat Ma* 

And a quiet spot is our village home, 

When toils of day arc done. 
When the wearied ones from work return 

No revel shouts on the air are beard. 

From taverns close and dim. 
No sound is beard on the ••illy night. 

Save the villager's evening ^V mn j 

* In this village home of our*. 
But humble, lovely cots have we. 

Encircled with vines and flowera , 
The windows are manth-d wiih ro»es bright,] 

And j amine pure and fair. 
Which the maidens gather at eventide, 

To wreath in their braided hair. 

There sre lovelier homos in thw earth I know, 

There are loftier cots than ours. 
There are richer scenes, there are softer winds, 

There are brighter and sweeter flowers; 
But oh. though their mansions may cosily be - 

Though their windows in gmndeur glentu. 
Though the scenes around them be brighter far 

Than the poet's or the painter's dream. 
No place to our bosom can he so dear 

As our home by the wiliowy stream. 



It wis. indeed. Mary. Sl,e had opened 
tue window to admit a little air, lo^j/v anil j 
impure as it necessarily was in that un- 
healthy locality ; and upon beholding her 
father in the street below, standing; trans- 
fixed and gazing upon her. she uttered a 
suppressed shriek, and fell back into her 
r u»b&nd's ar;.it», wl.o ; 
front giving a i^.uslc »ca*

toe. Then followed a package of tea, an- 
other of sugar, n huge side of hneon, a 
large meat pie, a piece of cold roast beef, 
and last not least, a glorious Christinas 

•'Father,'* cried the little git Is, as Jack 
extracted from the midst of these, some- 
thing nearly square wrapped up in paper — 
"father, what is that?" 

It MM a New Testament, out of which 
dropped a letter for Jack, superscribed by 
the same hand which had written the di- 
rection on the card. This letter was from 
Martha, as our readers w ill have already 
anticipated, begging, in a few words that 
he  * ouhl accept the hamper and its con- 
tents as a Christinas offering of peace and 
good-will from Mr. Sellers, who would do 
himself the pleasure of calling on his cousin 
in the course of ■ few days. "D   not re- 
fuse us." jt concluded, "the happiness of 
being of service to vou and your litlle girls, 
at a season when all old grudges ought to 
Ke forgotten, or only serve as incentives to 
the exereise o| Christmas! forgiveness." 

The children began to dance with delight 
round the old chest where all these good 

dislike, on the one hand, to receive these 
comforts from a man whom he had sworn 
to himself to hate and despire, and, on the 
others, a species of jealous dissatisfaction 
that more had not been done for himself 
and children. 

"While he was about it," thought the 
discontented man, "he might as well get 
me back my bed, and that proud young 
; madam, his wife, who scarcely deigned to 
| speak two words when she was here, might 
I have sent a bundle of her cast off clothing, 
j to make the children warm and decent. It 
I is a gall and poison to receive anything 
! from the rich, but," and here Jack swore a 
j fearful oath — "while I was doing the thing, 
j I'd lake csre I did it handsomely." 

He had just arrived at this conclusion 
when a loud knock came to the door, break- 
ing in upon his reflections, and startling 
him considerably. 

"What a fool I am," he thought. "I dare 
say it's onlv Sam Jones coming in to beg 
a light. I'll teach him to knock, if he 

hammers in that way, the . Come in." 

he shouted rudely. 

The door was flung w ide open, and in 
marched — not Sam Jones, as he expected 
— but two men, bearing between them a 
hamper of very considerable dimensions, 
.tnd equally weighty with iis size ; if one 
nitgli: judge by the evident muscular exer- 
tion of its bearers,' as they set it dowu on 
the mud floor. 

"All rigbt," said one of them. "This 
'ere be Misier John Marvel's, aint it ?" 
"Yes." said Jack, sharply. 
The men departed, and the little girls, 
who had ceased play to gaze at them, ran 
towards their father. 

"Father, father ; big box! Come, look, 
father r 

Jack hesitated — for in the mood in which 
he then wa» he would have scorned to tes- 
tify any curiosity, however natural — but 
. the inportunities of the children at length 

j\\ 1 f f* (\ J r*f Tt [N |*f H tt prevailed upon him to examine the hain-

a clear, decided feminine hand, which gave 
him no clue to the sender, as he was total- 
ly unacquainted with the hand-writing. 

"Father, be quick and open it. Do, 
pray lather." 

"I*ea\e me r«»oin. then, lasses," said 
Jack, beginning to relax in his ill-humor 
at the touch of their imporiunate caresses; I 
for reckless and desperate as the wretched 
innn had become, he had ever been a fond 
affi ctionme father. "Leave me a bit of,

what had happened, she might have fciirrd '

tawdry girl speedily appeared, in answer 
; but he thrust her aside with* 
y, and ascending the stairs, 
a time, as if he feared his daugh- 
be spirited away from him, ap- 
peared before the sitting-room door just as 
Mary opened it. 

We leave the reader to imagine the hug- 
ging and crying, and all the usual accom- 
paniments of such a meeting, only stop- 
ping to relate how Martha was detained 
outside by the tawdry servant, who flrmlv 
believed that a couple of thieves were tak- 
ing the house by storm : and how Henry 
Drummond had to go down, to bring her 
i:u and vouch for her respectability. 

"Isabella has been before-hand wi;h us, 
Mary tells me;" said Mr. Sellers, when 
tlie first excitement over, they were able to 
discuss matters quietly together. 

"Indeed !" said Martha. • I trust you 
will pardon her disobedience. What a 
matter of pleasant surprise will this reeon- 
be to her. There is scarcely any- 
iu the world so delightful as experi- things were spread out. occasionally stop- 
l an unlooked-for pleasure." ping to smell at the pudding, ami extract a 

raisins or a bit of candied peel from its 
ample -sides ; rnd Jack, Wolfing the door 
to prevent the intrusion of any neighbor, 
sat down again before the fire, with Mar- 
tha's letter in his hand, and, placing a foot 
upon each hob, fell inlo a totally new train 
of reflections suggested therchy. 

It was Christmas-eve also with the 
Drummonds and their friend Andrew; and 
there, indeed, the hearts danced to the 
flickering of the cheerful blaze, and reflect- 
ed its warmth in their own glow of happi- 
ness. For Mary, pleasant intle Mary, 
looked so serenely content in the anticipa- 
tion of the morrow's delight, that her 
youthful fre.-hncns had all come hack again, 
restoring the dimples that fatigue, anxiety 
and sorrow had well-nigh changed into 
w rinkles. Her altered aspect commuuicat- 
id its gladness to her husband and their 
visitor. In short the Yule-log was upon 
the tire, and they were determined to enjoy 
their Christmas-eve in fitting style. 

"Dear me,' said Andrew, suddenly rising, 
and pushing back his chair, "I had almost 
forgotten. Mr*. Druinmound, can you mull 

Mary answered in the affirmative; and 
forth issued from the proline pocket of the 
shaggy coat, an ounce of nutmegs and a 
bottle of Oporto's best bee's wing. 

We may imagine what were the toasts 
drank and the sentiments expressed over 
the moderate bumpers of Mary's excellent 
mulled port. 


Brightly shone the holly-berries and 
cheerily waved the laurel, ivy. and bav, 
and other evergreens that decked the walls, 
the windows, and available corners in the 
handsome drawing room at the Beech- 
House. Mr. Sellers and Mariha were al- 
ready there, to receive their guests, and 
were meanwhile anticipating t lie pleasant 
deununement of their little mystery. 

"I trust," said Martha, "that Mary and 
her husband will arrive just at the right 
time, neither too soon nor too laic. I think 
our directions were plain enough." 

"Oh, I have no fear." replied her hus- 
band. "Let me look at you dearest. One 
would get tired of black satins upon any 
one else, but really it suits vou so well, 
my little queen. And that wreath upon 
your smooth hair, is it real ivy and holly- 
berries, love !" 

"As real darling, as the decorations of 
the walls and windows. But, hark ! some 
one arrives. And none of your daughters 
l are down yet. Isabella is not wont to be 
i so long in dressing. 

Now w e must let our readers into a little 
i secret, and inform them, that, with the 
I true divination of a woman of her pereep- 
iess ; god one would have expected | live powers, the bride had anticipated the 
to have found Jack's heart warmed and possibility of a mutual liking between An- 

and around the pale golden tresses was 
bound a wreath of the delicate wild ivy, 
uninter mingled with anything brighter or 
more showy. 

The first arrivals were Mr. and Mrs. 
Tom Sellers, with their retinue of chil- 
dren ; the five youngest of whom were 
sent for the present along with the servant, 
who had come to carry the twins, to play 
in a large cheerful room prepared for their 
reception, where a nice girl, the eldest of 
Carry's Sunday-School class, was in wait- 
ing, to help to keep them in order. Mrs. 
Tom was rather timid, and fluttered at 
first; for, being a plain master-builder's

at the door. All turned: and An- 
drew Farieigh. for it was he. stalked for- 
ward into the middle of the room. 

The Sellers' and he were soon intimate, 
for they speedily recognized a brother 
spirit, and he was already acquainted with 
them from Isabella's report; who, the 
reader must he apprised, en passant, had 
been visiting Mary every day from the pe- 
riod of the bride's arrival. Singuiarlv 
enough, at each of these visits she had en- 
countered Andrew; who. for some reason 
«r another, was seldom away from the 

It was now unanimously agreed the 
additional guests — honest Andrew being 
included in the invitation — should take 
their places at the Christmas dinner, with- 
out previous notice to the Misses Sellers ; 
and, all being satisfactorily arranged, the 
happy pair departed ; Mr. and Mrs. Sel- 
lers arriving at home just in time to make

Christmas-eve arrived, presenting itself in 
very different aspects to the rich merchant 
and the poor artisan ; trie thrifty, and the 
drunken, and dissipated ; the charitable, 
and those whose 'bowels of compassion' 
had long been closed to the cry of their 
needy brethren. Around some hearths 
shone the cheering light of fire-glow and 
hearth-warmth, rejoicing in surrounding 
comforts, and the power of distributing 

but no remembrance of the poor 
was there to moderate the

and darkness, and that bitterness of 
spirit, which is still worse to bear than 
outward evidences of selfishness on 
the one hand, and improvidence on the 

Jack Marvel's dead had been decentlv 
interred. The horror had been removed 
from under the ragged table-cloth on the 
deal table; the house fumigated, and the 
little ones supplied for once with as much 
bread as they could cat. A cheerful fire 
burned in the rusty grate, and Jack him- 
self was attired in an old black suit which 
had ouee belonged to Mr. Sellers, and in 
he looked more respectable than he 
before for many a long day. All

around him. In fact, as is common 
with verty that has not ,'eft behind it 

drew and Isabella ; and, desirous at any 
rate of promoting the understanding be- 
tween two such congenial characters, and 
knowing how much the outer may he con- 
the type cf the inner, had herself 
the choice of Isabella's attire for 
It was to be the simplest 
without fluttering ribbons 
t of any kind. A 

very grand people indeed ; but the sweet, 
frank manner of our bride soon placed her 
quite at her ease, and when the Misses 
Sellers at length made their appearance, 
she bore her introduction to them with 
great composure. 

'"Isabella," said Martha, drawing her 
aside, "where is your ivy wreath? Why 
have you on that bright pink sash ? And 
what has detained you so long!" 

"Iam almost ashamed to tell vou, Mar- 
tha. When I was quite ready, I went to 
help my sisters, who had not yet begun io 
dress ; they said it was so unfashionable 
an hour for a dinner party, and such queer 
people were coming. They even doubted 
whether they sh'tild dress at all; and 
teased me so unmercifully about what ihev 
called my classical attire, ascribing it ail 
to your singular notions, that I turned cow- 
ard — partly for your sake — and made a 
little alteration in one or two particulars." 

"And if you wish to gratify me, dearest 
Isabella, at this, my house-warming, you 
will alter back again to the wreath and the 
green sash, and take ofl" that fine brooch. 
I have a particular reason for this, which 
I will tell you half a year hence." 

Isabella fixed her blue eyes on her 
friend's countenance, with a look of mild 
inquiry, but nothing was to be seen but a 
kind of suppressed archness. However, 
the young girl hastened to obey, and while 
she was still up stairs, another rat-tat-tat 
sounded at the hall door. The bride 
glanced uneasily at her husband, but her 
half-formed fears were quick! v dispelled 
by the announcement of Mr. M'Farlane. 

And now Isabella came down in all her 
classical loveliness, and dinner was on the 
point of being announced. But there was 
a delay unaccountable to the majority of 
the company. Conversation flagged ; and 
u kind of pause of expectation prevailed. 

Mr. sr.d Mrs. Sellers, too, appeared 
fidgety, and east uneasy glances lowads 
the door. At length there was another 
summons upon t he knocker, a slight bustle 
on the stairs. Jane and Caroline looked 
at each other with surprised inquiry ; the 
rest of tiie guests turned their heads ea- 
gerly, to see who the new arrivals might 
he ; and the brith* and her husband moved 
hastily towards the door. 

Again we must call upon the reader's 
imagination to fill the plate which we re- 
sign, in humble confession of our inade- 
quacy to describe the sensation caused by 
the entrance of Mr. and Mrs. Drummond. 
The tearful delight of Isabella, albeit re- 
strained by the presence of so many wit- 
nesses; the bewildered astonishment of 
CatTT and Jane ; the agitation of poor lit- 
tle Mary ; and the sympathy of our benev- 
olent Martha, with the extreme delight of 
her husband, whose heart's portals, once j 
expanded, seemed in no danger of everelos- 
ing again — all formed a scene never to be 
forgotten by the parties concerned. 

"But w here is Mr. Fairleigh ?" a«ked 
the bride, when they had time to think of 
any one out of the immediate familv circle. 

Isabella started, and then pretended not 
to listen for the reply ; which, however, 
she heard distinctly. 

"He begged me to present his kindest 
regards, and said that unavoidable business 
prevented him from accepting your invita- 
tion to dinner, but that he would be with 
you shortly afterwards." 

Martha 'looked towards Isabella, and 
their eyes met. There was an archness 
in the glance of the bride that made the 
latter blush, in spite of herself; but she 
thought, "My new mamma is no witch, af- 
ter all; what can she know?" So, when 
the huge original made his appearance, 
just as the desert was set upon the table — 
for what with the youngsters, who were 
lost in astonishment at the handsome set 
out ; and the zest with which the elders 
enjoyed the occasion, the dinner lasted to 
quite an unusual period — the only thing 
ohservahle in Isabella's manner, yvas a kind 
of friendly eniprcssmcnl, which completed 
her beauty by adding to its animation. 

It was now getting dark, and as soon as 
a movement hail been effected into the 
drawing-room, Martha and Isabella spoke 
low together, and the latter left the room 
lor some rrfllltf 

"What can this mystery be between 
Mrs. Sellers and Isabella?" whispered 
Jane to Caroline, as they sat apart in the 
amiable occupation of quizzing the guests. 
"The little boudoir has been kept locked 
all day. I tried to get in when they were 
there this morning, but Isabella came to 
the door and told me I should know all 
about it this evening. Look ! Mrs. Sel- 
lers has taken the key from her pocket, and 
now Isabella is going in with a light. She 
was too quick for us to see anything thro' 
the door, though." 

In the space often minutes Isabella re- 
turned, leaving the mysterious portal open 
behind her. Mr. Sellers gave his arm to 
Mrs. Tom, who nervously accepted the 
honor, and desired the rest to follow. All 
impelled by curiosity, immediately obeyed; 
and the little apartment was speedily filled 
to overflowing. Their eyes turned in sur- 
prise to the centre of the bourdoir ; for 
there, beneath a canopy.of holly and mis- 
tletoe, stood a fine Christmas-tree. 

"How beautiful !" exclaimed some of 
the company. -What is it.'" "What 
does it mean ?" asked others, who had 
never heard of this beautiful German cus- 
tom. The little children danced and clap- 
ped their hands: the twins held out their 
arms and crowed ; and the servants, who 
had been ordered to assemble in the draw- 
ing-room, crowded round the door, to see 
w hat was going forward. 

"This is a Christmas-tree;" said Mr. 
Sellers, "first invented by our neighbors 
the Germans. The proper time for its ex- 
hibition is Christmas-eve, but we took »he 
the liberty of postponing it to celebrate 
the happy occasion of welcoming back a 
much loved daughter and her esteemed 
husband ; and of renewing our acquaint- 
ance with many kind friends too long neg- 
lected. And n ow Mrs. Sellers will per- 
form her part of the evening solemnities." 

For the benefit of those of our readers 
who are not acquainted with the beautiful 
descriptions of the Christmas-tree in Mary 
Howitt's and other modern works and 
translations, we will just say, that the one 
in question was a young fir-tree, placed in 
a large tub, gaily painted for the occasion. 
Its branhes were hung with tiny tapers, 
cut paper, oranges, applet, bunches of rais- 
ins, figs, bonbons, and other showy and de- 
lectable trifles, besides more solid orna- 
in the shape of pretty and suitable 

presents for the children, young people, 
and servants. 

"Isabella," said Mr. Sellers, as the dis- 
tribution of the presents began ; but Isa- 
bella was not forthcoming. 

"I saw her a moment ago," said Jane, 
"talking to Mr. Fairleigh under the lamp." 

"And here she is still," said honest An- 
drew, bravely handing Isabella out of the 
corner which had attracted the couple to 
its snug recess. "Here she is, ready to 
dance Sir Roger de Coverley, or anything 
else that may be ftquired of her." 

"Oh ? a dance by all means," vociferated 
John M'Farlane, "a dance under the misle- 
toe. I can cut a figure in that dance, my- 
self," and the little man hopped about on 
one leg until every one was glad to get out 
of the way. 

"Be sober, man," said Mr. Sellers. "My 
bride has a meerschaum for you, which 
she begs you to accept for her sweet sake." 

"And a doll for me" — "And a drum for 

"Hush, children," said buxom Mrs. Tom. 

Just then a dull, dead tramp, as of a 
number of people marching up the carriage- 
drive, sounded from the garden outside. 

"Oh ! sir," said one of the servants, 
coming breathlessly from the window, 
where she had been looking out, "such a 
number of people on the lawn ! It can 't 
be the Chartists, sure." 

"Martha," said Mr. Sellers "postpone 
the proceedings a moment. I will go and 
see what it means." 

A few moments of suspense ensued, and 
some of the ladiss and children began to 
look half frightened. Mrs. Tom pressed 
closer to her husband, and Mary hastened 
across the room to Henry's side. 

"It is only," said Mr. Sellers, returning, 
"a parcel of people who fancy that my lit 
tie Martha here, has done them good ser- 
vice in this hard frost. They insist upon 
seeing her at one of the windows, that they 
may cheer her." 

The green damask curtains were thrown 
back, the shutter of the principal window 
opened, and by the blaze of light in the 
room behind, Martha's figure was plainly 
seen by those on the lawn below. Then 
rose a shout from men, women, and chil- 
dren. Andrew Fairleigh stepped out on 
the balcony, and taking ofl his hat, notwith- 
standing the cold of the night, signed to 
to them to be quiet. 

"Listen to me, my friends," he said. — 
"This is Christmas time, as you well know. 
Your benefactress is yet a bride. Lift up, 
then, your hands and hat», and your hon- 
est hearts along with them, and join with 
me, and all our friends within, in three 
times three for the Chrit-tmaa Zfru/e.'" 

And those without, and ihose within, 
heartily responded to the cheer; while 
Martha, her meek head druoping, and her 
dark .eyes filled with tears, would willingU 
have retreated from the public homage thai 
offered to private and most Christian worth. 
For what had she done but carry into prac- 
tice, as much as in her lay. the golden rule 
for human mortality for all time — "What- 
soever ye would that men should do to 
you. do you even so to them." It would 
certainly cost us some trouble, some ridi- 
cule, possibly loss of worldly friends, and 
distribution of worldly goods, hut what 
large-hearted man or woman, looking at 
the present in the light of the future, would 
not wish to go and do likewise? 

So we join the happy company in the 
drawing-room at Beech House, and liumblv 
begging for a moment's audience, add from 
our inmost souls — "One cheer more for the 
Chkistmas Bkioe !" 

A man says, the first thing that turned 
his attention to matrimony, was the neat

Old Dr. S., was among the most eccen- 
tric geniuses of the "cloth." He held 
forth many years since, somewhere in the 
region of the White Mountains, in the 
Granite State. His pulpit window was so 
situated, that from it there was a full view 
of the Old Monadnock Mountain. One 
Sabbath, expatiating to his audience on the 
power of faith, he recited the passage from 
the New Testament, in which it is said, 
"If ye have faith as a grain of mustard 
seed, ye should say to this mountain. Be 
ye removed," etc. He then exclaimed, 
••Yes, my hearers, if you had faith as a 
grain of mustard seed, and should say to 
Old Monadnock, Be ye removed, it would 
be" — when, pausing, and casting his eye 
out the window, he shook his head gravely, 
and continued — "doubtful, mm hearers. — 
Old Monadnock- is a tolerable' big hill—but 
you can try it .'"

It is much safer to take a pretty girl's 
smile, than one at the 'saloon.' The one 
makes a man feel like going right up into 
the clouds, and the other is very apt to 
make him go just the other way. 

Noble Boys. — A noble boy is an hon- 
or to his parents and to his school. It 
makes us feel happier when we meet such; 
and we love to tell other boys of their 
noble acts, that they may learn to imitate 

One day as a boy had passed a basket 
of pears, another boy said to him : " Why- 
did you not pocket some of those pears ? — 
there was nobody there to see you." 

"Yes there was — I was there to see my- 
self, and I don't mean to see myself do 
such a wicked thing," was his noble and 
prompt reply. 

He who gave this answer was poorly 
clad, but he had a noble face and a true 

In the "Young Reaper" we find an in- 
cident of another noble boy : 

"One pleasant Sabbath morning, in the 
city of New York, a boy neatly dressed, 
with books in hand, was seen walking 
briskly along the avenue, on his way to 
Sunday School As he approached the 
corner of the street which led to the 
church, he heard the voices of several boys, 
and, on turning, found them busily playing 
at marbles. They at first tried to persuade 
him to join them; then they ridiculed him, 
"You dare not stop ; you dare not stay- 
away from the Sunday School." 

"No," said the boy. turning round and 
lot king at them full in the face, "no; but 
I dare go, even if you do laugh at me." 

Here is still another story of a little boy 
who had courage to do a noble act, though 
rude boys stooil by to ridicule him ; 

"A crippled beggar in a large city was 
striving to pick up some old clothes that 
had been thrown him from a window, when 
a crowtl of rude boys gathered about him, 
mimicking his awkward movements, and 
hooting at his helplessness and rags. Pre- 
sently a noble little fellow came up, and 
pushing through the crowd, helped the 
poor cripphd man to pick up his gifts, 
and placetl them in a bundle. Then slip- 
ping a piece of silver into his hands, he 
was running away, when a voice far above 
him said, "Little boy, with a straw hat, 
look up." He did so, and a lady, leaning 
from an upper window, said earnestly : — 
"God bless you, my little fellow — God will 
bless you for that." 

"The lady was the wife of a man so 
distinguished among the great men of this 
world, that every one of those boys would 
have been proud to obtain her approbation; 
and when she wrote down his name as one 
she wished to remember, he felt more than 
paid for all he had done. 

*'As he walked along he thought how 
glad he had made his own heart by doing 
good. He thought of the poor beggar's 
grateful look; am' then of the lady's smile, 
and the words of approval ; and last, and 
better than all, he could almost hear his 
heavenly Father whispering, "Blessed are 
the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy/' 

Little reader, when you have an oppor- 
tunity to do good, and feel templed to neg- 
lect it, remember "the litlle boy with the 
straw hat."

Deafness. Sl. Vitus dance, paliMtaiion of the bean,

tion, dyspepsia, uterine pains, paralysis, sic., etc. 

These chains were first introduced in the city of 
New York, less than one year since, and alter being 
subjected to thorough trials in every hospital in ihs 
city, snd applied by Drs Valentine Mott, Post, Car- 
rochan. Van Buren and others, it was discovered thst 
they possess s' range and wonderful power in the re- 
bel and cure of the above class of \ 
sale and the success that has ail 

1 revioua io their introduction  nto this country, 
they were used in evrry hospiisl in F.uropa. snd 
are secured by patents in France. Germany, Austria, 
Prussia and Lng and; and also, in the United Stales. 
' Think float and ponder melt."— The prlnci- 
which it is claimed thai the Chains produce 
lou.i cures, are. first— that all nervous dis- 
eases are attended and produced by a deficient supplv 
of nervous fluid, and an agent thai resembles closed 
electricity or electro magnetism; and second— that 
the electro magnetic chains by being worn over and 
upon the part and organ diseased, furnish to the ex- 
hausted nervous syst* m. bv it* powerful stimulating 
effects, the nervous Dual which is required to produce 
a healthy action through the entire system. No dis- 
gusting nostrum is allowed to be taken while using 
the chains, but a rigid observance of the general laws 
.of health are required Brisk Irictionupnn the part 
diseased adds murh to the effect of tbese chains by 
increasing their magnetic power. 

One Thousand Dollars will fie given to any per- 
son who will produce so msny well authenticated cer- 
tificates ol cure, both from intelligent* and 
scientific physicians as have been ejected by ihe use 
of Pulvermacher's Elretric Chains. They never tail 
to perform what they are advertised to do, and no 
person h«a ever been dissatisfied who has given them 
a trial. 

In Female Diseases more than one hundred cures 
of Prolapsus Fieri have been effected within the last 
veer by the use oflihese Chains. By applying one 
end o» the chain over the region of ihe abdomen, snd 
the other upon the spine just above the hip, the usual 
severe svinptom* incident to that disease are at once 

Mode of Use. — The ehain should be moistened be 
fore use with common vinegar, snd then one end of 
the chain should be applied directly to the seat of the 
psin or disease, snd the other end opposite to it.
