President Arthur is making up his

Blaine is on the rise in the estima

It is really amusing to see how the
English journals discuss the Monroe
doctrine, when, at the same time, their
government is notorious for its inter
fcrence with the affairs of the other
nations of the earth.
In nearly every contest for place
between a white Republican and a
colored brother, the latter takes the
cold potato and departs. There are
about three colored men who have

The exploring steamer, Jeannette,

The Air-Line railroad is getting too
noted for its accidents and mishaps.
It is said that it is rarely ever that a
train is on time on this road. Under
its former managers it was earning a
splended name for safety and dispatch.
Some newspaper man has published
an interview with Gen. Joe Johnson,
in which that celebrated ex-Confede
rate General goes for Jeff Davis in a
lively manner. The most important
charge that he makes against him is
that he managed to carry off in his
flight two millions and a half of money
belonging to the Confederacy and has
never accounted for it.
President Arthur has declined an
invitation to dine with the Boston mer
chants, assigning as a reason that he
does not care, while the country is yet
in mourning for the late President, to
engage in public festivities. There is a
delicacy of good sense and propriety
in this action that is greatly to General
The "rand railroad enterprise of the
year is the one that proposes to unite
the two continents. The line starts
at Houston, Texas, and runs from
thence through Mexico and the central
American States and ends in Brazil.
It is said that the project will soon lie
upon a permanent basis and will be
put through at once. The greatest
objection to the enterprise will be the
ease with which it can introduceyellow
fever into this country. But we
suppose tiie trains can be quarantined.
The citizens of Lo c aisvilie and
vicinity held a railroad meeting not
long since and appointed a committee
to look in to their possibilities of making
a railro. and connection with the balance
of mankind. It appears that the citi
zens of that place are divided as to
the place to make the connection. The
majority favor Lawrenceville, hut
Lawrenccville don't want them. Cov

The committee will look into the matter
and report at the next meeting.
The Mahoneites of the Virginia Le

Kiddleberger was a candidate for

It is current rumor that, at the ap

the Central Railroad in next month,
measures will be taken to water the
stock of that corporation. The move
is opposed by Mr. Wad ley, the Presi
dent, and ids friends, but the opposi

can carry their plans*if they wish. The
friends of the Louisville & Nashville
railroad are said to have a controlling
interest, and that if Mr. Wadley does
not do to suit that road he will be re
moved from his office. We should

and bel eves that an independent

and a full Slate ticket nominated. His
confidence may be overwrought, but
there can be no doubt that it is a real

Oh! wild and dreary, sister mine.
Is the day of Christ Jesus' birth;
No Hitting likeness of that hallowed day
That brought our Saviour to the earth?
When quafling the (lowing bowl this morn
With throbbing heart 1 thought,
Of the sinful pleasures indulged this day
By our Saviour’s blood 'twas bought.
While thousands chase with mirth e'en
The fleeting hours of Christ's birth-day,
While thousands weep, and thousands
So glides the years of life away.
jTwas Christmas day, one year ago.
When you, with heart so light,
Entered an earthly paradise
Which to \-our gaze was fair and bright.
You reveled in the joys awhile
And dreamed fair dreams of youth,
The fairest of caithly visions,
Fnknowing of a short year's ruth.
But scarcely had the old year
Drifted into the new
When the idol of your paradise
Had changed into the serpent you knew.
And black were the clouds that drifted
Over your Eden sky.
Obscuring all your sunshine
And the lov - glit in jour eye.
But hope, my own dear sister.
For the morrow may be bright,
A rain-bow may appear for you
To fill your heart with light.
But I will condole by stating I
wish you all a merry Christmas and
a happy New Year. Vivian.

The Sun for ISS2 will make its fifteenth
annual revolution under the present man
agement, shining, as always, for all, big
and little, mean and gracious contented
and unhappy, Republican and Democratic,
depraved and virtuous, intelligent and
obtuse. The Sun's light is for mankind
and womankind of every sort; but its ge
nial warmth is for the good, while it pours
hot discomfort on the blistering backs of
the persistently wicked.
The Sun of 1808 was a newspaper of a
j new kind. It discarded many of the
forms, and a multitude of the superfluous
words and phrases of ancient journalism.
It undertook to report in a fresh, succinct,
unconventional way all the news of the
world, omitting no event of human inter
est. and commenting upon affairs with the
fearlessness of absolute independence.
The success of this experiment was the
success of The Sun. It effected a per
manent change in the sty le of Ameiican
newspapers. Every important journal
estijblished in this country in the dozen
years past has been modelled after The
Sun. Every important journal already
existing has been modified and bettered
by the force of The Sun's example.
The Sun of 1882 will be the same out
spoken, truth-telling, and interesting
By a liberal use of the means which an
abundant prosperity affords, we shall
make it better than ever before.
We shall print all the news, putting it
into readable shape, and measuring its
importance, not by the traditional yard
stick. but by its real interest to the' peo
ple. Distance from Printing IlquseSquare
is not the first consideration with The
Sun. Whenever anjthing happens worth
reporting we get the particulars, whether
in Brooklyn or in Bokhara.
In politics we have decided opinions;
and are accustomed to express them in
language that can he understood. We
say what we think about men and events.
That habit is the only secret ofTiiESuN’s
The Wkekj Y Sun gathers into eight
pages the best matter of the seven daily
issues. An Agricultural Department of
unequalled merit, full market reports, and
a liberal proportion of literary, scientific,
and domestic intelligence complete Tiie
