Frank Smith, another boy of about the same age, with a dirty face and closely-cropped hair, was also charged with having been drunk and found lying in a door between 3 and 4 o'clock in the morning. The Mayor remarked that he was a very small boy to be guilty of such an offence, but pleading the approach of Christmas as an excuse, he was discharged with some good advice. Robert W. Starke, who was up on Friday for drunkenness, again made his appearance on a similar charge. The Mayor required him to give security to keep the peace for twelve months. Frances Loving, who appeared on Friday under the name of Frances Smith, was again up for drunkenness. Policeman Epps testified that he found her lying in a perfectly helpless condition upon the street, with a bottle of whisky by her side. She sta
Christmas present for General Lee. --The beautiful and elegant set of furniture, twenty one pieces in all, presented to General Lee by the noble daughters of the Monumental City, passed through this city yesterday, and was shipped by canal for Lexington. The present was brought on free, the agents of the steamboat line refusing to charge freight, in compliment to Virginia's former chieftain.

Yet, it was in the moral midnight of the world that the Christmas star first rose. It was upon an altar whose prestige had departed, that its mild lustre first fell, illuminating odern mode of celebrating this great Christian Anniversary may be incongruous and inconsistent in times like these; but Christmas, in its true method of observance, is the very festival for periods of darkness and tribulation. It brings its gold an
"I knew it, when they put you into such a bad bedroom. They are keeping all the good rooms for the people who are coming next week. The house will be full for Christmas. It won't do,'" she added, meditatively. "What won't do?" I said. "Your not having a shilling in your pocket. They'll sneer at you for it, and the sehildren's stockings, looking longingly out of the window, and growing pale for want of fresh air. Still never rebelling, never complaining. Meantime the stir of Christmas preparation was agitating all the household, and the children were full of rapture at the prospect of Lady Thornton's Christmas party. There was great excitemend very red at first, and I thought she was going to burst out crying, and then she turned pale, and looked frightened. Nurse, to whom I had slipped a munificent Christmas box, immediately fell into raptures over the pretty dress. "Come, Teecie," I said, "make haste !" And trembling between dread and delight, Teecie suffered h
