President Arthur’s friends lire try ing to have him elected Senator from New York, to succeed Sen- Laplmtn, und Mr. Blaine’s friends, it is alleged, are d i ig all they euu to defeat the President’s ambition. It is the old light be- tween the hnif-breods ami the stal warts revived. The Blaine faction say that the President ami his Cab- iuet did not exert themselves to secure the election of .Mr. Biniue, und that, therefore, Mr, Blaine’s friends ought not to help elect tliu President Senator. .Mr. Jones, the Chairman of the Republican national Committee, made seine, pretty bold statements about the iuditferunce displayed by tlio Pres ident and his Cabinet during the late campaign. Secretary Chand ler retorted and hit Chairman Jones sumo hard blows, lie in timated that if there .was a desire for a (action light ill the, party .ft would bo had without much trouble He told Mr. Jones that as h*f led' tlio party to ddfentin tlio Hesitleii- tialcontest it would -be more |je- coming in him to keep quiet. Of course there is more or less crim ination and recrimination. Blaine's managers arc now told that if they had spent in New York the t'JO.GOU which they threw away on Butler Mr. Blaine would liave been elected. If this quarrel continues and it ioo|js very much as if it would, sonic interesting party se crcts may bo nmdo public. A hitter feeling is bcghining to show its self among file less prominent leaders. The Democrats can afford to watch this faction fight with satisfaction, because it promises to assume such proportions ns to in sure them tho Btate in the next Gubernatorial contest. In the meantime the President’s prospects for tlio Scnntojrshfp Bccms to ho •heard when wo pull Lj. help.

Writing of tlie past addons, ils, and looking buck over the track of the past year brings suddness and joy to all. ’I he past year lias been one of sorrow and bereavement to some of our friends; wives, friends and companions have fallen, like leaves before uu an gry wind, out down by the scythe of time—aye, the links of house- holds have been broken, tlie hearth-stone has. been dimmed and ail made desolate, The wail of tlio -orphan is heard ih tlie land while tlio cry of the widow, and children rises to Him who is tlie husband of the fatherless. Turn the other side of tlio pic ture. After years of toil and anxious waiting our ciiorts have bifcn crowned und the Dem ocratic hosts have marehod to victory with Cleveland ut its lioud. Hearts that have been so long hoi-no down with the weight and disappointment of defeat rises in thanks to tile Gutl of tiie world. So great has been.. the shock of this long looked; lor and devoutly - wished achievement; tlmt tlio heart is paralyzed with gratitude, and the thanks of a mighty multi tude ristis to heaven liko tho billows ol tlio deep, while every bosom lionvos a' prayer,“God save Cleveland,” Teuco and plenty, reigns su preme, gladness und a future liopo for prosperity fills Urn heart to overflowing,., and wo look forward to tho recomingof the Now year with joy, believing tbit within that- scopo of time much will have been done for good uud many orils may he removed.

Tho night is dark, with u sprinkle of rain fulling, and us we pass along the street our mind is carried Jiuck many years, to tho timo when wo enjoyed the return of fcliristmus, just like the hoys and girls do now, but we have reach ed riper years now, many chan ges have coriio oyer Us, our cup of sorrow Has boon full, those that .wo loved have been laid a- way in the cold and silont tomb.

ChOsi dron look forward to Christmas for many weeks, and it would ■not do to disappoint them’ and evon gi-own -people Would miss tlio pleasures and presents ot tho holiday season. ’4 Presents are not prized for their money value, but because they indicuteflove, friendship, or ( respect on tlie part of the giver, and the charm about them is that tlioy afford tho giver as much pleasure as the receiver. “Every year greater attention is, paid to the holiday goods, and there is every year somthing now and novoll.
