A Xmas. Song. [For the CHRONICLE.] Bv J.C. M. Heigho, for the season that's come for a space, To shake from our shouldsraeach burden some trace Of woes we would fain not remember : To lift for a moment the worn- and dread Of daily routine, andinitsl in their stead, Tht short-living joys of December. We knew not the cold breath the Frost King may blow, Nor tbe sore-cumbered landscape of pal* driven scow Mid northern climes, rugged and unkind ; Our lives, I may cay, are raort pleasantly cait, On southern plains, free of the Umpsring blast Of the sportive though soul-killing wind.

With fullest allowance of tether. iledisval castles our cousins entrance, And lords of mU-rule in tbe old halls may prance By yule logs that sparkle and flicker ; Your nativ...
