" merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you, greeting familiar in the ears of musi of our leaders. To John Bull it is synonymous with sirloins of beef, reeking hot puddings, coal fires, smiling faces and warm shakes of the land. Even in distant, tropical climes lie is nut whing to forget and forego thy festivities of his fatherland, though he be obliged 19. substitute a lump of buffalo fiesh for his tine rosy sirloin, and a dusty punkah for his brigbtly blazing fire. ly England, more particularly in Loudon, this is the gayesi, if not the bappiest season of the year.

Every • one by common consent.forgets for a time his vexations and his sorrows, and gives a free rent to his gayer feelings. Families are united in happy, innocent enjoyment. Old and young, parents and chil dren, join in the same games and laugh ål tbe some funny stories. Acquaintances who have during the past year met coldly and disa tavily, now throw aside reserve, and become the best companions in the world. Friends who have been seperated by distance or cirs cumstances, come together to crack jokes and walnuts, and to exa press their astonishment at each other's looking so remarkably young and well." Sturdy cast-iron men of business are seen to relax their copper countenaticos, unbolt their crazy old bearts, and let loose a few half starved smiles. Even the poor pauper in the worklouse partikes of the almost universal relaxation, and gets an extra basin of pea-soap and a red herring during the week, and if he be in high favor with the parish beadle, is treated to an order ou the parochial cook for a platelul of scraps from the church wardei.s' annual dinner.

London, the queen of cities, is more replete with bustle and retail business during the christmas week than at any other ume, alihough large mercantile transactions are almost at a stand still, All the world appear to have assembled there to make merry and spend their money: Froin day-break to night-fall, and often will loug alter, there is one continued ebb and flow of men, women and cinldren. Lonz strings of short stages are pouring into and depo$iling their contents in the " great metropolis," Steam-buats literally cover the waters of the Thames, laden with living cargoes. The Northern and Western ont-lets of the capital towards Kensington, Hampstead and Highgate, are swarning with foot-passengers, bending their light steps to the favorite places of resort.

li is a fine, clear, frosty day : not a cloud to be seen, in throw #gloom apua the inny duings of the busy world below: the saber citizens and their families, dressed in their sunday best, ponr from their laues and courts by hundreds and thousands, all panting for a few hours of sweet, wholesome air and cessation from toil. The North and City Roads are as crowded as Fleet Street or llulburn al mid-day, and if the frost should have been severe enongh io have formed ice, numbers will till off at the City Canal iq gee ihe skaiters, and perhaps have a slide and a tumble or two. Many a stragaling pair inay be seen on Shepherdess fields and near Copenhagen House petty servant girls or small tradesmen's daughter's, strolling with elirir beaux in their sunday ribbons and slioes, and may be halt promising to be at the dance in the crening at the Eagle Tavern. As the day wears on, a dense fog gaihers over the ding's holiseuops and gives timely warning to the swarms of pedestrians to seck their lines, and their tiresides.

If there be one class of human beings happier thau another, and which does the heart more good to behold, at this period, it is young children. To im thu uew year is peculiarly auspicious, for tlicy partake of all its lestivities without any of The regrets and sorrows which somehow or other, will force themselves edgeways into the bosuips of Luse riper in years, spite of all their pery lecliuys.
