Osiris. “Pop! pop! toot I toot!” disturbed my slumbers about 4 o’clock thia Christmas morning. “Ob, those miserable boys! 1 I exclaimed, turning myself upon my pil low; “I wish they would let me sleep. 1 Just then another volley broke upon the night air, and at slight intervals the firing continued until daylight came to my re lief. It was impossible to sleep, and after long meditation, as a prudential measure, I left the bed for the comforts around the blazing grate. The effect of the morning ablution and the glowing fire cast a cheer ful radiance over everything within, in spite of the howling storm without. The incessant cracking of the poppers and the hideous tones of tin horns kept me re minded that the average boy. was still about. Boys—what a strange compound they are 1 A bundle of Incongruities, the prin cipal ingredients being fun, frolic and mischief, generous impulses, courage and thoughtlessness. There is no manner of mischief hidden from the boy, and out of slicer fun and frolic be does not hesitate to tie a lighted bunch of fire crackers to a dog’s tail, if in the turor every horse on the street runs away and demolishes every vehicle and lamp-post along the line. He would laugh at the greatest man In the city,or even if it were his own falhef who falls, being tripped by a wire stretched across the sidewalk. They have courage to go where brave men would not dare to tread, and they shrink from nothing out of which they esn extract a little fun. The rain, the cold, the mud, and even the howling storm caunot cheat them out of their Christmas frolic./ Yet I like these wild, frolicking, fun-lovini; boys. Their genius now expended upon methods of fun will ere long be turned to more practical uses, and be ex- jwnded lu building railroads, cotton factories, and managing the thousand and one industries that crowd and bless our laud. God bless these boys, and let them have a merry Christmas to-day. Bested by the window gazing out upon the gloom, and ever and anon catching a glance of some boy skipping through the rain to astonish his neighbor with a re port of his fire popper, two older people passed mufiled in their great coats and rubbers, and under the sheltering fold of an umbrella, perlectly independent of the pitiless raiu that corno thick and fast about them. As they passed my gate one of them looking over into the yard and seeing everything neat and clean, and the front door closed, remarked, “No boy in that yard.” On cither aide, my neighbor’s children were toot- iug their horns aud making the air redolent with burnt powder, but witiiiu our enclosure all was quiet. The remark of the passerby startled me, and the thought oppressed me, “No boy in our yard.” What a priratiou! “No boy,” and tho tears came leaping to the eyelid. Ob, what loneliness pervades a childless homo 1 No merry prattle to greet the ear, no music of pattering feet upon the stairs, no inquisitive eyes peering into ours to Iearu4hi wealth of Santa Claus, no brok en toys scattered upon the floor, no songs of gladness upou tills Chris'mas mom, no hoy in the yard. Was it ever thus ? . I found, unconsciously, my face buried in my hands. Approaching footsteps roused me from my dream, aud my eyes instinctively rested upon a portrait upou tho wall. From tbcuco two black eyes gazed down upou me afiec 1 innately, and lips, so lifelike, seemed ready to speak, “No, it has not always been so,” and then the memories of bygono years come crowding and rushing through my brain until, bewildered, I was about to reach forth 'to clasp the mere shadow of my departed boy. But calmly and lovingly lie still looks down upon me from just above luy writing desk. The madam comes and goes, busy with her household cares, but now* aud then lifts her eyes to the portrait above my head, the quivering lips alone giving ev idence of the emotion which fills the ma ternal heart upon this festive day. Witli eyes bedimmed I wnte, and if it were not for this tear-st ained page tlie world would never have known that there was a por trait upon the wall. Alas, there wero two who came to glad den our domestic hearthstone, around whom the teudrils of our hearts were twined, and upon whom tbo wealth of paternal affection was bestowed. A double tombstono guards their earthly resting- place in Rose Hill, but it is with a glori ous hope and hcavcn-b'om faith that we believe our two boys are to-day, in nobler strains and sweeter anthems tban earth ever knew, celebrating the Saviour's natal day. ■' Tlie law of compensation rules at last. If there is “no hoy in the yard,” there are two in heaven. And ere many more Christmas anniversaries come and go, we shall join them In those subiimer songs upon that shining shore. A Home fob Moteeb.—It is delightful to turn from the too frequent_j»d example of the dime-novel-bitten runaway boys bringing tbemaelvek and their parent# to grief, to a pure picture of filial love and duty like this: Say* a letter written from a western city: Business called me to the United States Land Office. While there a boy, appa rently sixteen or seventeen years of age, came in and presented a certificate for for ty acres ol land. I was struck with the countenane aud general appearance of the boy, and in quired of nim for whom he was purchas ing the land, “For myself, sir.” I then inquired where be had got the money. He answered, “I earned it.” Feeling then an increased desire for knowing something more about tlie boy, 1 asked about himself and parents. He took a Mat and gave me the following narrative : “I am the oldest of five children. Fa ther is a drinking man, and often would return home drunk. Finding that father would not abstain from liquor, I resolved to make an effort in some way to help my mother and brothers sud sisters. I got an axe and went into a new part of the coun try to work clearing land, and I have sav ed enough to buy forty acres of land out there.” . “Well, my good boy, what are you go ing to do with the, land ?” “I’ll work on it, build a log house, and when it is all ready, will bring father, mother, brothers and sisters to Ure with me. Tho land I want for my mother, which will secure her from want in her old age.” •‘And what will you do with your father, if he continues to drink?” “Oh, sir, when we get hint on the farm he will fe ;1 at home and be happy, and 1 hope become a sober man.” “Young man, may God’s blessing at tend you in your efloris to help aud to honor your father ami mother.” By tills time tbe.receiver handed himhis receipt for his forty acres of land. As he was leaving the office he said: “At last I have a home for my mother T Help for (be Great Army ot Convales cents. who, after an attack ot disease, get so far back ou the returning wav to health and no farther, line of the most serious itn- lediments which the medical profession las to encounter is the tendency in all diseases, whether acute or chronic, to wards debility aud loss of vital force.

New Orleans, December 27—A col lision occurred ou Sunday morning be tween the south bound passenger and a freight train at the Stele line on the Mo bile and Ohio railroad. Tbe two engin eers and two brakesmen were killed and several others fatally wounded. Chablottr, V. O, December 27.—In telligence of another frightful reiSroad disaster reached this cKy this morning about 8 o'clock. It occurred on tbe Air Line railroad, about 500 yards beyond Paw creek trestle, nine mile* from the city, about 7 o’clock. Two freight trains of uuusual sizo.iitft Charlotte yesterday morning in sections, one about fifteen minutes behind the other. At Paw creek trestle, fourteen cars of tbe forward train, Engineer Anthony, broke loose and shipped, after runnings snort distance. In the rear car were flagman Bob Griffith, of this city, and six passenger*, three of whom were colored. When the detached ears stopped, Flag man Griffith jumped off, and having told the train men to notify tbe passengers that they had broken loose from tbe re mainder of the train, immediately started back to signal tbe second section, which he knew must be only a few miles be hind. He had not gone back far before he heard the approaching train blow, and then realized the fact that be could pro ceed no further, because of tbe trestle, which is 150 yards long and very high. He waved the flag as the engine in charge of Engineer Wisenberry came in sight,and tbc engineer expressed his recognition of it by immediately blowing on brakes, but his train was heavy and be was nearing tbe bottom of one of tbe biggest grades on the road; hence it was impossible te step. Ae soon as be realized tbte fact, and be fore crossing tbe trestle, be reversed hie engine and continued to blow on brake*. Realizing tbe catastrophe, be left his seat and standing in front of tbe fire box, with hie hand on tbe lever, awaited the shock. It came, and he was partially knocked down by a st ick of wood from the tender, but was otherwise unhurt, though almost eutirely abut tn by the mass of debris which wa* thrown against the en gine. His life was probably saved by the fact tbat the rear of tbe tender wa* thrown to one side, thus diverting the foil mo mentum of the train from the engine to the side of the cat, against which the shattered can were p ied up. All the passengers in the cab of tbe forward sec tion were either killed or seriously in jured. Thee, A. Gaither, of tbit dty had two or three ribc broken. Phillip 8. Wie- nant, of this city, Charlie Sellers, of Pin- brook, and a negro named Ned Stroud, were instantly killed. The wreck caught fire and burned up, and at least one man was burned alive, a* bis ones could be beard, but nothing could bo done for him. Mr. Gaither was the sole survivor of tbe passengers lu tbe cab. A large force of men is now engaged in moving tbe wreck aud building a track around it. An Amebicakizkd Pabisian.— Mile.
