They hang up their stockings on Christmas Eve, and in the morning find them filled with goodies. At New York this is done by Criskindle (Christ kinde) and at Baltimore by Santa Claus (San Nicolas). We went to two country parties near Baltimore. I could see very little in which they differed from similar Christmas dances in Sussex or Cheshire. They run us hard both in the vigour of the dancing and in the excellence of the suppers. Life seems to have been very easy here before the war, but now the agricultural interest, by which I mean the wellto-do gentlemen farmers owning some five or sixhundred acres of cleared land, are poor compared with what they were.

COMING AT LAST. (By GEOKGE H. ) Up on the hill there, Who are they, pray, Three dusty troopers Spurring this way 1 And that squadron behind them 1 Stand not aghast— Why, these are the rebels, sir, Coming at last! Coming so carelessly, Sauntering on, Into the midst of us, Into our town ; Thrice thirty miles to-day These men have passed, Stuart at the head of them Coming at last ! Oh, sir ! no gold lace Burns in the sun, But each blooded war-horse And rider seem one. These men could ride at need, Outride the blast— O yes, sir, the rebels Are coming at last !

Far from the haunts of men remote, The brook brawled on with a liquid note, And nature, all tranquil and lovely, wore The smile of the Spring, as in Eden of yore. Southern Poems of the War. 43 Little by little as daylight increased, And deepened the roseate flush in the East— Little by little, did morning reveal Two long glittering lines of steel; Where two hundred thousand bayonets gleam, Tipped with the light of the earliest beam, And the faces are sullen and grim to see, In the hostile armies of Grant and Lee.
