Translated from ; the Tjitin of Abraham
a Sancta Clara (Ulrieh Jlegerie).
Saint Anthony at church
Was lelt in the lurch ;
So lie went to the ditches
And preached to the fishes.
They wiggled their tails,
In the sun glanced their scales.
The carps, with their spawn,
Are all thither drawn ;
Have opened their jaws,
Eager for each clause.
No sermon beside
Had the carps so edified.
Who keep fighting like tike",
Now swam up harmonious
To hear Saint Antonius.
Xo sermon beside
Had the pikes so edified.
And that very odd lish.
Who loves tast-days,- the cod-fish,
The stock-fish, I mean,-
At the sermon was feen.
Xo sermon beside
Had the cods so edified.
Good eels and sturgeon.
Which aldermen gorge on.
Went opt of their way
To hear preaching that day.
Xo sermon beside
Had the eels so edified.
Crabs and turtles al?o
Who always more slow
Made haste froirfthe bottom,
As if the devil had got "em.
Xo sermon beside
Had the crabs so edified.
The sermon now ended.
Each turned and descended;
The pikes went on stealing,
The eels went on eeling.
Much delighted were they,
Btit preferred the old way.
The crabs are backsliders.
The stock-fish thick-siders.
The carps are sharp-set ;
All the sermon forger.
Much delighted were they,
Bnc preferred the old way.
OUR XEW YORK
Xkw York, Dec. 30,
BKIiCHI AND- TIIK HORSES.
Bergh. the head of the Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, got af
ter the horse car people the night before
Christmas in a most delightful way. The
cars were unusually crowded, and a heavy
snow was falling. The car com panic?,
who arc managed by the kind of men who
look upon a man and a horse as so much
iu i.e utuiuieu in inn shortest space
ot time, were dragging the cars ttp town,
loaded to twice their capacity, with the two
horses umal to good weather. It wa3 one
strain from the Post Office tip town, aud
the jaded steeds only got on by pulling
their shoulders out of joint. At 23d street,
Bergh's officers stopped every one of the
airs, and compelled them to stay there till
additional teams could be put on. There
was no help for it, and over three hundred
car3,nll loaded to their utmost with hungry
men, were held there an hour, till tho
teams necessary to drawing them with
some degree of comfort could be brought
and attached. The passengers were as
wroth as the companies, but Mr. Bergh in
formed them that he did it for the purpose
of awakening them to the necessity of tak
ing some interest in humanitarian move
ments. While lie is about it ho ought to
do something for the drivers, who are as
Daaiy overworked as the horses, and not
half as well fed. The car driver in Xe'w
York is compelled to work from fourteen
to sixteen hours a day, in freezing weather.
rain, snow or sleet, night and day, for
wiucn they receive the munificent sum of
$1.63! They are compelled to stand on
their ffcet all the time, and then there is
scarcely one of them who has not varicose
veins, or some ther disease brought on by
exposure, equally serious ; and as severe as
is the labor, and hard as the work is, there
are thousands applying for the positions,
ior every ,piace mac is vacant. - It ts a
rather good prool of honesty that they work
at all at such wages, rather than 6teal.
But while the animals are taken care of,
there has been as yet no society organized
to prevent cruelty to men. The streetcars
are so many mines of wealth, anchthe com
panies are enormously rich ; but their em
ployees are naraer worked aud less paid
than any in the city.
. niGH LIVING AND DEFALCATIONS.
The frequency of defalcations by young
men holding confidential positions ex
cites a great deal of remark. Every
day some young man gets away to Europe
in a mysterious way; his books are exam
ined and he is found to be a defaulter to a
large amount. Then his employers inves
tigate, and it is found that he has been liv
ing fast, that he-has been "supporting a
woman," and that his face is well known
In the gambling hells, lr he is smart, he
has stolen and .saved enough to be able to
compromise with them ; but as a rile he
has squandered all that he has stolen, and
has fled without money or character. I
knew one case of a young man who belong
ed to two clubs.his living at which cost hlni
not less than $10,000 a year, who kept a
mistress who rcmiired a .carriair for 1iji
own use, and whose mid-day lunches never
cost bitn less than 5. At tho clubs nn
town he was sun nosed to he a mrn.. i
the house and his extravagant Hviti" was
not considered singular.. It turned" out,
however, that be was merely a clerk on a
salary $1,800 a year, and that his defalca
tions in two years footed up over $00,000 1
And he got away to Australia with noth
injr his mother sold stock tt nwf Vn V..
hundreds that were necessary to take hirn
out of Xew York. Every cent bf it has
gone on his vices. His mistress sold his
carri.icres, horses and iewBlrr
ately proceeded to find another victim to
rnitn Another clerk, at a salary of $1,500.
embezzled in about the same time $00,000.
which he spent in the saniA -n t i, -
singular thing that tho business of a errat
house should be managed so as to niakn
such thefts possible, but it is so; and Jhey
occur almost daily. : , . , , nef

The holidays hav tul-n h. ...t-i.
1 the politicians, and there ia ac7bi,,sTew
on the chess-board. The democracy find
it hard work to keep up an excitement,
and they have about abandoned the idea of
Interposing any objection to the Inaugura
tion of the legally elected President. Hayes.
They have quit drinking blood, and as an
easy way of letting themselves down, talk
mysteriously of an appeal to the " courts.'
Nothing will como of it. -They have lost
the game, and have made up their minds
to grin and bear it. The men of money
will not respond to the Invitation to the
tented flekf, for fighting means money,
and tho merchant who has a regular busl- .
ness has not the interest in putting Brown,
the wurd-striker, into n sinecure io the
custom-house that Brown has. ' Conse
quently he don't want to go to 'war for
Brown's sake, Mid Brown has not been
able to stir him up to it as yet. Tbe edi
torial mill is still Sending out Its .ready
made intellect, but there are evidences that
it will close next week. Uncle Samuel has
bled many millions and lie has got tired of
it, especially as he is certain to be beaten
In the end. and tho effect of tbe election of
Hayes is showing itself mora and-more.
Gold is down to 7L making it possible to
resume specie payment at any time. -While
business is dull, everybody feels hopeful
that the spring will being a revival, and
business men are content to wait till the
matter is settled beyoud a peradventnre.

New' York has received another off-set.
The grain trade has been gradually leaving
the city for Boston, Philadelphia and Bal
timore. Vanderbilt made an effort to get
it back by cutting freight in favor of New .
York, but the other lines have finally
beaten him. The Baltimore and Ohio
brought him down, and the New York
Central lias in the new arrangement raised
its rates, so that Baltimore has a very heavy
per cent, over New York, i The wholesale
merchants are feeling ugly over this sur
render of Vanderbilt, for goods are very
largely bought where grain Is sold. All
this is bad lor New York, but it is well for
tho intet ior cities and the producer. There
are no facilities in New York for handling
grain, and it ccVts altogether too much to
get it through the city and on shipboard.
Chicago. Toledo and Milwaukee are ship
ping heavily to Baltimore, and the dry
goods and grocery trade is following it.
The elder Vnnderbtlt is still on his bed.
and his son William does not seem to have
the acuteucss ot his father: At all events
Garrett has beaten him badly, and New
York sufferers. The Vanderbllts control
too much railroad. Mr. Garrett works his

New Year's, and will be kept np just as
long ns any feeling is shown. .Boston and
Philadelphia are to join with them, work
ing the same way, the speakers changing
about so as to always have something new
and attractive. It is hoped by the origina
tors to get np a feeling that will count on
the rum mills, especially tbe fashionable
ones. It Is a business men's movement,
and has the support of the heaviest mer
chants in the city.- i -
The weather is cold and delightful, roach
to the joy of the Ice companies and the liv

the park shine with splendid equipages.

; The Richmond Range. The Richmond
range is King among cooking stoves, and
no mistake. It is the most complete, best
furnished, economical stove In the, world,

It economises fuel. Is a splendid baker,
and looks well in kltchea or parlor. Call
