The Cold in Scotland. --The Glasgow Examiner states that one day in Christmas week the thermometer was actually in some parts of Scotland forty degrees below zero.
ard thee openly.--When thou fastest, anoint thine head and wash thy face, that thou appear not unto men to fast. When thou givest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth.--Such was the religion of Jesus Christ as understood by the whole Christian Church, till Pharisaism rose from its whited sepulchre and once more appeared upon the earth under the form of Puritanism. Its appearance cast a gloom upon every page of the Gospel, upon every altar of the land, upon every Christmas gathering and every Maypole dance, and, what is worse than all demoralized and degraded human nature, wherever its influence prevailed. The merciful genius and spirit of Christianity had no place whatever in the Puritan system. It was Judaism revived; it was the law and the prophets; but the law without its holiness, and the prophets with no inspiration but that which came from hell. It was a religion of long faces; of pious words; of fasting and alias proclaimed everywhere, of sanctimo
t 10d. per pound in England. England "desperate" for Cotton, may interfere in the war. [From the London Herald (Derby organ) Sept. 18.] We have only reports on which it is best not to comment further at present any more than on that other report, more momentous as regards ourselves, of the embargo laid on the cotton crop. This would indeed be a sign of desperation. Its object would be to force England to break the blockade. Trusting, as we do, that the war will not go on beyond Christmas, and having cotton enough to last till then, we need not take the matter into consideration as yet. We must ourselves be rendered desperate before we can be driven to a measure of arbitrary interference in a quarrel in which we have no concern. Export of Cotton from England to the United States. [From the London News Sept. 18] The screw steamship Edinburg, belonging to the Liverpool, Philadelphia, and New York Steamship Company, which leaves Liverpool for New York to-day (Wednesda
erred in keeping the Yankee wolves from their doors, and enabling them to eat their Christmas dinner in peace and security. If friends cannot bestow as many Christmas gifts upon each other as in former times, it is some consolation to reflect that, in this respect at least, the entire period of the war has been a continual Chrose widows and orphans of our noble martyrs to liberty who may be absolutely destitute of the necessities of life, whilst surrounded by plenty and profusion? No Christmas gift can be more acceptable to God and man than gifts to such as these, and no appliances for making Christmas happy so effectual as those which impart to our owsolutely destitute of the necessities of life, whilst surrounded by plenty and profusion? No Christmas gift can be more acceptable to God and man than gifts to such as these, and no appliances for making Christmas happy so effectual as those which impart to our own minds the assurance of having increased the happiness of others.
Theatre. --The Christmas pantomime, which was received with so much favor last night, will be re-produced this afternoon, so that the juveniles, who wish to have a little extra enjoyment, and others who believe in a good laugh as the best aid in digesting a good dinner, can have no cause to complain of a lack of opportunity. The night performance will embrace novelties which are well worth seeing.
Mayor's Court. --Arthur Ferguson, a free boy of color, indulged so deeply in Christmas potations on Thursday, that he fancied himself a white man, and pitched into Wm. Mitchell with a will; but found out his mistake when Mr. M. tied him and took him to the cage.--The Mayor sent the pugnacious youth on to the Hustings Court for trial, admitting him to bail in the sum of $200. The second in the series of ludicrous mistakes was furnished in the case of Napoleon Reminger, a drummer boy, connected with one of the New Orleans companies at Manassas. He came down to Richmond to spend Christmas, got on a big bender for so small a specimen, mistook himself for a horse, and went to sleep in Sutherland's stable. The Mayor sent him to General Winder with a recommendation to investigate his spiritual condition. David Bum, a German, might possibly have mistaken himself for a "bum" shell, so well was he loaded on Thursday night; though we can only learn that he mistook E. F. Ragland
Mayor's Court. --It was gratifying to note a thin attendance at the temple of justice on yesterday, though it was an exception to the general rule on Monday morning. We are encouraged to hope that the votaries of the bottle have found some balm in Gilead more soothing than the expressed juice of corn oxeye; and if this be so in Christmas times, what may we not expect when the social machinery gets fairly and squarely to work again in the ordinary way? Only three drunken individuals appeared yesterday upon the call of the roll; one was discharged, one committed, and the third required to give security for his good behavior hereafter. The following cases were also disposed of: Patrick Shay and John Doland, two fast boys, following the example set in Broad street on Friday, kindled a rousing fire on the South side of the Basin on Sunday, but unluckily for themselves, went to tearing one of Mr. Crenshaw's houses down to feed the roaring flame. The police suddenly put a stop

[Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] a happy Christmas — the Rogue's March Superseded by Yankee Doodle. Camp of 12th Mississippi Regiment, Christmas Day, 1861. A happy Christmas, from a quiet line of the army, I cordially send you, Gen. McClellan has no idea of taking Christmas cheer, down on this little old stream called Bull Run. We are all sorry for that; while, with creamy bowl of egg-nogg, we soldiers drink permanency to the young Confederacy, and good health to our glorious President. The only new thing of note, is a custom just adopted in the army. When a worthless soldier is "drummed out," it is done to the tune of Yankee-Doodle, instead of the Rogue's March, as was the custom. The new custom arose from the fact, that more rogues march any day, now-a-days, to the tune of Yankee-Doodle, than have marched in all time, to the Rogue's March. The custom arose from a suggestion of Col. Harry Haze, of the 7th Louisiana regiment, and does that gen
far from a taste, a distaste for dinner. This has been the experience of all of my mess, and it is not confined alone to ourselves. John R. Barleycorn was quite an intimate companion of some of the men — the former occasionally preparing a wreath, in which the latter fell victims to the superior agillty of the former. An agreeable disappointment was experienced in that the number of its inmates, so the inference may be very naturally drawn, notwithstanding what I have said, that our Christmas passed off pretty quietly. The time between the holidays and New Year's day was spent on picket ou-post No. 3, which has been assigned us for the winter. Nothing occurred while we were there worthy of note. We were blessed with clear weather, although it was quite cold. We returned to our camp in time to enjoy the New Year's day, which was a pretty one, and which I hope is a forerunner of many such that are, to follow. The day was celebrated by active employment for the speedy com
From the Peninsula. the Christmas and New Year holidays among the soldiers — Prospects of a fight — Disogrecable weather, &c., &c., [Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Yourg's Mill, Jan. 5th, 1862. The first Sabbath in the New Year finds the 15th Virginia regiment comfortably winter quartered at this place. We have enjoyed a merry old Christmas, all "with spirite feather light, " that time-honored beverage (Egg-Nog) being the favorite of the day, made the natureal sobriety of many faces beaming with good humor, and modest tongues showed a fluency of speech quite surprising; and feet accuttomed to quietly tread the ways of life, moved gaily on the " light " The old year is fraught with the most memorable events that the history of the American people will ever record.--The repetition of those stern and fatal requisitions which all Republics have required and experienced, is past, and enrolletion Time's record, May the new year see less of this fearful dra
