"WAS the day before Christmas and out on the street Was an incessant tramping and stamping or feet. As, to and fro briskly, mankind moved about. And from the gay markets came throngs pouring out. In the air was a perfume of holiday spice: Oa the 'walk was a coating of hard, gleamy ice; The glad music of sleighbells rang out sweet and clear, And the world seemed replete with Christmas tide cheer. In the midst of the bustle, with hands and arms full, And tugging behind him a load hard to pull, Went surging and pufliing, with good-natured air, A jolly old gentleman with snowy-white hair. His appearance suggested a familiar saint: Though his garb and his manner were not quite as quaint; Still, what with his bundles and many gew gaws, lie strongly resembled dear old Santa Claus. Alas! that Disaster should plume her dark wing: Alack: that so certain is Trouble's sharp sting; When...

Last week the standing candidate for president, Mr. Blaine, suffered a great deal with the gout, but the dispatches tell us that it has left him. It is strange how often the "Plumed Knight" gets left. One of our exchanges tells us that an Ohio man has been arrested for steal ing a locomotive. This is without doubt the most remarkable larceny since another Ohio man filched tLe presidency. Services over the remains of Senator Logan will be held next Friday in the Senate chamber, and the body tempor arily interred in a "Washington cem etery.

Mr. Moonlight, the recently defeated Democratic candidate for Governor of K-msan, h:is been named by the Presi dent ior Territorial Governor of Wyo ming in place of young liayter, whose appointment a. few weeks ago gave such unboundeJ satisfaction to the citizens of the Territory interested. The prompt dropping of Mr. Baxter arises from causes which show how much in earnest the Administration is in its determination to save the rem nant of the pub.ic domain for the use of actual settlers. The Governor who was removed to give place to Baxter earned his dismissal by siJing with the iand crabbers on every occasion and by attacking the policy of Land Com missioner Sparks in his annual report to the Prcsdent It had been sup posed that Maxtor was not involved in -1113' of the land schemes of the far West, but his appointment had hardly bcen announced when reports came to the White IIoumj that Baxte...
