The several Sunday Schools
of this city bad thoir annual Christmas
trees, laden w un U'.-auinui unu coMiy gins,
vhicii ! will proceed to briefly notice.
Till: TUKE AT ST. I'Al'lS CHUIICH,
On Saturday evening, wag a superb affair,
a;id attracted a very large audience. The
Church was most tastefully decorated with
festooning of cedar bough.', arranged in
an artistic manner. Over the altar, in an
n'reh 0f green letters, were the words :
llosanna to the Son of David ! " beneaib
which, and vesting upon the altar, stoodTi
crucifix, and tit its head the initials " I. II.
" (lesus Ilomhm Salvator). in bold re
lief Over the baptismal font hung- a rep
resentation of the Harp of David, sur
mounted by that of the Star of Bethlehem.
Aroufid the sides of the Church were ar
ranged, in large capital?, the words " Glo
ria hi excel-fi-s Deo " (Glory to God in the
highest ! '"' and ' Unto us a child is born."'
These tasteful adornments gave the Church
a sylvan beauty, pleasing to the eyf, yet
jn perfect harmony with the commemora
tion of the birth of the Son of nature's
God. The "tree' shaped into a beauti
ful pyramid, was literally loaded with the
gifts of the happy ones who sat before it.
and when lighted, presented the appear
ance of a fairy land. Before the distribu
tiun of the gifts, the Pastor. Rev. John W
Seilvvood. delivered an able address to
'parents, concerning their duty as guardi
ans of immortal souls, dtirit.g which his
plain, truthful asseverations sent convic
tion to till present, and his tender, heart
felt aj p ais brought tears to many a par
ent's eves. During- the evening several
Cbri'-invvs carols were rendered, in a
h'ghly ere litable in inner, by the school,
and that beautiful composition. The Star
of Bethlehem." was sung by the Rev. Mr.
Selhvood. Mis. J. V. Selhvood, and Mr.
and Mrs. Ilarger. in an artistic degree at
tainable only by tho highest order of vo
cal talent. The distribution ot thegifs
followed in a very pleasing mariner, and
all seemed to feel the inspiration of th;;
occasion--" On earth peace, good will to
ward men." The celelitatloti will be one
long remembered by the people of this
city, and the " words that, breathe, and
thoughts that burn." which fell Irom the
lips of the Pastor on that, evening will
have found an echo in many a heart, and
have brought f'orih goo-l liuits in many
hviivu places, ere another twelvemonth
shall have rolled away.
ON CHKIH TM.VS DAY
Religious services were held in St. Paul's
Church., where an able discourse, by the
Pastor, was listened to by a large and at
tentive congregation. Set vices were also
held, as usual, in the Catholic Church.

wi.h the Baptist Sunday School, was a
veiy beautiful one. possessing symmetri

handsome and valuable gifts. On the front
of the tree were two banners, with the in
scriptions : Peace on F.irth." and 'Wel
come ;" the who'e surmounted by a large
bright star. The exercises were opened
by the Rev. Mr. Chandler, after which one
or two songs were sung by the schools,
when the Superintendent. Mr. Wm. Cary

happy hearts. The exercises were opened
with an anthem by the choir ; some read
ings ana recitations by the younger mem
bers of the school followed, when the
-choir sang, ia a very fine manner, " Glory
to Cod In the highest."' The distribution
of the gifts eloped the evening's entertain

lit' this city and Portland, and an hour bu
rr. " when music arose with its voluptu

eyes that spake again." with blushing
saii'.es. pleasing coquetries, and mazy
mingling, the ball commenced. It were
beyond our ability to give a full descrip

outlines must suftice. We will say of the
gentlemen that they were gotten up. gen

anil not be invidious ; but, the ladies de
serve a more extended notice. Among
the most attractive toiiets we mention that
of Miss A . who wore a dress of ashes of
roses hue. with trail, and overskirt of the
same, cut full, and looped at the sides by
bands of lavender-colored ribbon ; the
hair was worn back, with a few bewitch
ing carls hanging from the centre. Miss
M. wore a pink silk, cut short, with slashed
sleeves and scalloped over-skirt, trimmed
with a delicate bordering of ermine ; the
hair was n. mass of jetty ringlets, fastened
back with a. coronet of go'd'aud sprinkled
with scintillating diamond. Mrs. 15. wore
a gorgeous black gros grain, with slashed
sleeves and full over skirt, trimmed with
n band of orange-colored silk, over which
bung a bordering of black thread lace.
A Miss M. wore a brown silk, trimmed
wt'n true notion, wan over s.urt ami
waist of white tulle, low necked, iastened
at the waist with a bow and streamers.
Miss S. looked charming in a maroon em
press cloth, cut plain, without trail, sleeves
cut lull, and trim nod with pink ribbon,
the co'ufure wa a lonu-d by a coaster o!
delicate flowers. The Misses T. were
chavmincl v attired in white alpaca, with
trail. Hoor.es and over-skirt, trimmed
with bh.ck velvet, ntol the latter looped
at the sides ; the hai was worn in flowing
curls. Mis E. S. looked well, attired in a
pink alpaca, with white Swiss over-skirt.
Miss I. S. v.'uro a white alpaca, ornamented
wi-1: a scalloped over-skin and trimmed
with pink alpaca. ly presented a
yerv line appearance, robed in a pink silk,
with white Jver-skirt. Many o'lteis we.v
attractively attired, but our space forbids
any further attemn's at description. Af

all returned to the hall, where dancing
was continued until the grey stre.ikirtg of
the Orient warned the votaries of Terpsi
chore to seek repose. This ball, although
not a pecuniary benefit to the company,
was a most agreeable affair. The hall was
tastefully decorated, the music was excel
lent, the company select, and ail enjoyed
the festive ocea-ioa in the highe-r degree
possible, which cleat Iv demonstrates that
No. 2s boys know low to give a ball, as
well to run with iht inaehine."
TJte Cliriatmiis Tree at Otld fellows'
On Tuesday evening, the members of
the Decree of Rebecca. I. O. O. F.. had a
Christinas tree in their ball, which was
laJwi with some rich presents for friends,
and presented a very attractive and beau
tiful appearance. After the regular order
of bu-dness was finished, the distribution
of gift3 to k place, which excited consid
erable merriment, each person receiving
a present being required to expose it to
general view, and some were very comical
in their nature. Some one procured the
Postmaster's cane, and hung it on the tree
without name or address, but tied it piece
of bacon carefully around it. There could
be no mistake as for whom it was intend
ed, as he is the original Bacon." Our
friend S. D. Pope was generously remem
bered by his friends, being the recipient
of fifteen or more presents, which would
probably aggregate in value to the sum of
one dollar, consisting of a spool of thread,
box of blacking, box of pills, and a num
ber of other useful articles ; but the most
appropriate was a piece of china, where
he is represented as coming home at one
o'clock in the morning, receiving his des
serts." Some unknown friend had plaeed
upon the tree a pair of gavels for Oregon
Lodge No. 3. I. O. O. F. They are made
of rosewood, highly polished, bound with
a heavy band of silver, on which is in
scribed To Oregon Lodge No. 3, I. O. O.
F.. from a Friend." They are the hand
somest articles of the kind we have seen
in the State, and the donor could not have
made a more appropriate present. All
who attended enjoyed themselves hugely.
Miisoiilc Installation and Suiiier.
On Wednesday evening, by invitation,
we attended the installation of the officers
cf Multnomah Lodge No. 1, A. F. and A.
M. The hall was filled with lady friends
and members of the order. The ceremo
nies of installation were conducted by I).
P.Thompson, E.-q, Past Master assisted
by John Myers, E.-q.. Grand Marshal. The
singing was conducted by a special choir,
under charge of Rev. John W. Selhvood.
Alter the installation was completed. Mr.
Frazer, the Master installed, returned
thanks to the officers and members for
their courtesy toward him during the past
year ; to the choir, for their music ; and
to the lady friends of the Order, for their
aid in supplying the table with a splendid
supper ; after w hich he introduced Rev. I.
D. Driver, who delivered a short, but in
teresting address, which was listened to
with marked attention. lie showed con
clusively that, while the ladies were not
allowed to become members of the Order,
they were the ones who were directly
benefited by the organization. He also sta
ted that the Order of Masonry had its
origin in. and relied unite existence, upon
Holy Writ, and that Book of books con
tained all that pertained to the Order. He
said the Masonic Temple on earth was typ
ical of the Temple above, and that the
higher perfection a member attains in
the Lodge here, the better he will be pre
pared for the Lodge above. Our space will
not admit of any extended notice of the
address, and we must pass on to
At the close of the address, the order
was given for all present to repair to the
supper room, where a splendid repast
had been prepared by the wives of the
members. The tables were admirably ar
ranged, under the supervision of that
tasteful and courteous epicurean, Fiank
Hill, who displayed his abilities on this
occasion to parfection. After all had par
taken sumptuously of the good things, it
was announced that all who desired to
enjoy themselves in a social dance could
do so by repairing to Myers' Hull, and
those who did not. could return to the
Lodge-rocm, where music and singing
could be. enjoyed. At half-past nine o'clock
Myers' Hall was filled with young atid old
and dancing was commenced, which was
continued for about two hours, when all
went to their homes, highly pleased with
the varied and interesting exercises of the
Christmas, 1871, has passed, and we can
truly say that our citizens, one and all,
as they journey on down the river of time,
will ever cherish in their memories the
recollection of, and recur with pleasure
to, the manner in which it was here cele
brated. Wki.l Uk.memhkkki). From the number
of presents on the Christmas Tree, at St..
Paul's Church, last Saturday evening, for
lie v. John XV. Selhvood and wife, we
should judge their many friends showed
their high appreciation ot them in a very
u u m i s. t a k a b 1 e m a n n e r .
Crowns. Mr. A. Levy has our thanks
for a box of fine cigars, which he present
ed us on Chiistmas Day. We enjoyed
them as they disappeared in smoke, and
more than once our thoughts reverted to
the generous donor. Miy Levy be happy
all his life, and live uutil he is as old as
he wants to be.
Got IBs Max. On Saturday evening
last Marshal S. D. Richardson, of this city,
went up to Salem, in search of a half

returned with him on Sunday, and lodged
him in the city jail.
