The earth ai» arrayed, aa (or the bridegroom, Is the 1 garb ofpnrlle The robe of innocence wt«. however, far from being assumed pescelully.

Yet it found a location, and. tbongh Irregular!?.- It spread itself in silvery sheen over street and housetop*, garnishing dike (he noisome alley and the Jaunty portico, while tne fitful violence of eld Boreas carried it up high Into windows, forming It In banka agaimt floor* and fences, and driving it through the chinks of the dwelling, on the floor of which tbe dond spray lay in mimic plateau or mountain range whose water shed lay In the plain below. And though, as the morciug broke gloomily, it re vealed the results of the snowy baptism, yet was tbe sprinkling process kept up dnnnc the day (111 near nightfall, till it amounted to a practical im mersion Of the face of nature—a literal burial un der the tuptinnal wave. And ao the Boly Sabbath was observed yester day in tMa city, with more of bnraan peacefulness than I* the usual wont of our people. Few cared to wade through the enow, which. in consequence of the mildness of the weather tn a thcnnometrlc •ense, melted cn the dotting wherever It touched, welling boots and fur*, ano penetr.tlng through the thickest under-elcubing 10 the skin.

Only one or two cars ventured out, and they retired quickly a* possible and left their wontd-be patrons to fool it or stayat home as they might elect. H'-nce the number of church-goers was limited. Very few cared to foot it a long distance, and we may, perhaps, bo justi fied in faring that In many case* tbe storm was a snowy instead of a fiery trial, distlngtzUblng tho wheat from the tares. Tbe churches were fat tram being crowded; in most of them tbe andi <ncea were decidedly small. Tbe first enow storm of the reason was not the i>egiDni'i£ of winter; It bad been bera’ded m the -!pns of the eky for some days before, and tbe chill btcfltb of the Frost Sing bad sheeted o’er our ponoa and river with that coat of mail which ea aMesnamre to combat without hinn the dread powers of death.

IM- Collier, ye-ienlay morning, preached in ihe Church of the Messiah, a sermon, the above being Ms enbject. The selected text was the words of the Saviour, delivered at Capernaum, to those who announced to Him that His kinsfolk sought Him: “Whosoever shall do the will of God, the same la my brother, and my sister, and mother.” (Mark 111., 85.) Übe dlacoarse was radical in the extreme. Jesus, in tho commence ment of Hu mission, had sought to revivify the religion of the covenant of Abraham, but meet ing with the experience of all reformers, be had soon discovered that It was not well to pot new wine in old bottles. Then, In the words of the test, he ia face of the Scribes and pharisees, cat loose from the ancient things, and became hetero dox and heretical. Inthlaeame connection, he aunonncea the unpardonable sin, which the speaker held to be the rejection of me truth. In tula age the slnnerein this line are the narrow sectarians and dogmatic bigots, who callin'* them selves evangelical- deny mat their brethren are so. Prior to the enunciation ot this new doc trine of salvation, the Jews were the world, and to them it was verv email. Now It waa enlarged to tnclnde the whole human race. The orthodoxy of Jesus the speaker held not to be traditional orthodoxy. Qe deoled that In thu century, advanced and advancing In art, adence. commerce and morality. It was either proper or sensible to mm to the second century lor truld anec in the way of truth. - Ood did uot empty himself Into the lap of the easiest Christian com* tnui.lty, and from tuc day* when such a corneau **lty existed errors are ever to be cleaned. Upon the heeto of the departure of Jesus cram the world, followed error, and eves Peter came under the censure of Paol for duplicity and hypocrisy, when at Acttoch be refused to eat with the Gen* tile brothers, lie was ashamed of the Church of the age, in which the main topic of discussion is the color of a neck band, the propriety of oppoa* Ir.g dtodle light to the dories of the sunbeam! and the number of bows and scrapes which the officiating minuter should make dorlm divine ten-ice. The want of likeness m sil this to the course of Jesus stamps it with the cancelling mark of spurlonenes*. So the orthodoxy of Jesus la not conventional. Jcsna cared no more for what was conventional than for that which was traditional. Men believe because other men believe, and yet ff the conren* bonallrsu were Investigated how few would bold to them, and others think lhal the creed makes the life. In opposition to this view all reformers. Including ail the prophets or Israel, bad de* nounccdthe conventional orthodoxy of the peo ple. who have always rested on conventional truth. Again, it is not ecclesiastical orthodoxy. He de nied the right of any one man to dictate the opin ion lor another; or of any century to impose its belief upon the people of another. Sayio~ a crcrd la not believing it, and in the rccltarof creeds but few are trmbinl. Yet this moral a> surdity is the ground work of every eect.of ortho doxy, acd he believed this very eectesiastlcism is the irti Christ, and not Rome, or infidelity, or nni ' cn-al d 'Tbt. Ills this spirit which closes the doors cf .he duucb to mankind, and dotes the Kingdom of licuven against men; ftu this spirit Jesus de nounced In the Scribe* and the Pbarf-cca, and this day U is rampant and not less exclusive. He believed that the orthodoxy of Je«os Is a spiritual orthodoxy. That he who Is true to God, acd who marches to the mn*icotbla own con science, and who is true to bis brethren, only is orthodox end Jeans’ brother. Belief he loosed upon as nothing, for, in bis opiuion, but few men believe at all. Nevertheless Jesus said the devils )«lleved. and their lalth profited them nothing. If this view be correct be anticipated tobe Included in the multitude in tbe kingdom uf Gotland to be long to this he prayed God to grant his heavenly grace. THE CnuiSTIAN’S REST. Sermon.by Bey. Jmm BtThomu, Rev. Jesse B. Thomas, pastor of the Plerposl Street Baptist Church, Brooklyn, preached last evening in the First Baptist Chorcb, to rather a small congregation—hundreds being undoubtedly kept away by the Inclement weather. His text was Mathew, xi., S 3, “Come unto me all ye that are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest” TbeTrevercnd speaker assumed (be position that these word* were not addressed particularly to the laboring peasants who at (be time surround ed the Redeemer, but that they wore general in their meaning, and Included off, no matter of what class, nation or color. Many forcible illus trations were brought forward, as to the real meaning |of the word “labor” in tbe text, and U waa concluded that all lal*orers in the work of life, some with no ap- Esrcnt trouble and tome with bumeos almost too cavy to be borne, was Included in the invitation. The reference to the business man who, when He days' work la done, slows bis thoughts to wander back to «e ir looked when he was a boy, was one of the happiest Illustration* given; aid the mention of tue mother labor ing to pennade her little one to go to sleep was no Ices forcible than beauti’ul. As ail had been called by Christ to throw off their burden* and come to BSm,wbur'. there was uo night acd no sorrow, it waa the duty of all. whether young, old or middle aged, to accept tbe invitation s’, once, and not put off from time to time the work which ought to oe done on the instant- The clos ing remarks, referring to the eternal happiness In heaven of those w&o acknowledge the liord on the earth, were exceedingly impressive, and calcnLit-d to ha*e a lasting effect upon lho:c who heard them.

That ia skating In the country. We in the city “cabined, cribbed, confined’* by the boun daries of squares and lota, cannot do our winter sporting on so grand and spactons a scale; but Ingenuity and money can In some degree compen sate for lack of space by appointments which bring the warmth and convenience of the home pailor Into close contact with the chilling air of the ice-field. The most delicate belle need not fear to venture to park or rick In the coldest night; for the moment the keen air begins to tip her uo<c or slice ber toes she can step from the Ice to a cheerfn] fireside and thaw her blood for another round. So now as we said, tbe carnival has begun—and gay and brilliant Is the scene at night. Packs and rinks each have. their especial admirers, the greater expanse ol the one and the better shelter nud warmth of the other, being counterbalancing considerations. During the day they have their visilora, principally youthful boys and maiden*, and awkward beginners to toe art of skating, who prefer to display their unex pected poenuings before as small and select a body of apccuiots as possible. But at evening the ra# lights flare brightly, the band begins lu stirring strains. Youth and beauty, wrapped in furs sad woollen*, come gallanted by bearded attendin'*, and the festivities begin.

A Veen frost—a little too keen for comfort some- Uses bas continued daring the entire week; so that all tbe parks bare been in the best possible condition. Tbe West Side Umk, which opened on Tuesday ovealus, has already established itself as a favorite skating resort, while tbe Washington, tbe South Side Link, tbe Central and tbe Ogden all receive more llan tbelr wonted share oi patronage.

Wo manly lore, refloed and snbdmatod, la alternated with coarse passion springing from low, viel-mi associations. Jealousy and mts'akeo revenge la contrasted with intense hatred, with sadden pas sion. with earning submission from fo.ee of habit and education. All these phases of the human disposition, springing from similar causes, but i Illustrated by the different surroundings ol the character* the assumed. Miss Western has faith fully portrayed doting her reccct anpearaoce In this city. TnriMulress to nature la her forte, she Is not or Ihe stage, stagey. One know* not which to admire the most, the haughty Lady Isabel, sofuned by love, or the unfortunate Nancy Sykes, who clings to her “gang” from fear and toe force of asiodauon, while her womanly bean ia filled with loathing aod disgust at her un holy surroundings. It Is, however, her atten- Uon to lie minutest details ot the characters she undertaxes that constitutes the chief features of Ml«s Western’s success, Appropriatearas of dress, expresslveocs* of face and gestures, whether in (he magnificent toilet of the woman of hublon, or in the rage and dishevelled hair of the low creature of vicious association ; whether ag onized by the sorrows of a mother’s heart, which mn-t be restrained while she see* her child snatched away by the hand of death, or the coax ings ql a brutal lover whom she has nursed through a fever, and who throws her from him as hfe strength returns, demonstrate alike Miss Western s skU) and tarefnl study. Nancy Sykes is dlUcrently Interpreted by the several aetreues who have assumed the role. Miss Western, la our opinion, more nearly approaches the author's design in her conception of the character than any one else whom w« hare seen undertake lu It Is a peculiarity of Charles Dickens that his fr male characters nearly all posaera some angelic attribute. It is nla amiable weakness. They may be ever so low. Melons or aba» doaed, there is still an undercurrent of good feeling, an Instinct of Mrtne, which redeems them from totsl depravity.

They art hideous or repulsive, or malicious, or scheming, mean, sordid, cunning; nothing good, hot every thing which la M!e. low and contemptible. And ytfwt find him always bringing forth ao inching good ont of the wont pattern of woman nood. And so in the character of Nancy Fykes. Born and bred in the lowest haunts of London, surrounded ever with vice and crime, practically an abandoned creature, the holiest rentlmust of virtue finds a lodgment In her breast, and Is awakened Into a moment’s vi tality when for the first time in her life she la thrown Into Intercourse with refinement purity. Miss Western here represents with ac curacy the woman cousoons of her own degrada tion, who is abashed by the presence of virtue, and gives tta a wondrous illustration of hope, des pair, shrinking haahfttlnesa, and fear, aroused by the superstitious dread ahe has of being discov ered by her companions. And ao tbioughoni tbs Play sue ta the repreaentatlve of a class, and at the same time ot an Individuality, which the au thor of the work from which the play waj drama tized intended for his own purpose to form an ef fective pan In working out the plot he had de signed. As a play, Otiver Tvhl Is Dickens badly ent np, and as a matter of course, all the characters are rendered subordinate to the one leading part. The representation of -those characters wh'cb go to fill np scene aod dlatbsme were, in the main, poorlv executed. McKee Rankin made a fair “BUI s-vkes,” and Hamilton did well enough I? “ Fagin. But of tac rest, excepting, perhaps. Miss M. E. Cordon's “Oliver nothing to praise, end silence with regard to them would be the most charitable. Saturday nights performance closed Miss West era s engagement In this d>y for the present. She 'Tails St, Louis this week, where she la engaged to appear for a limited number uf nights. alcVicszh's Tbeatju—Mr. L. F. Barrett closed a two 'reeks’ engagement on Saturday. The firrt week was end rely filled up with “Griffith Gaunt,” •nd the greater portion of the part week with the drama of “Rosedale.” Although “Eliot Grey" is one of the very )>e*t of Sir. Barrett's assumptions, it might have been more satittaclory to hie ad mirers. as well as for tbe success of bis engage ment, bad he given more of his Shakspearian ren ditions. “Hamlet” was played on the occasion of Mr. Barrett's benefit, on Friday, and the week closed with “Richard lU.” On Monday Blanche Be Bar makes her first appearance. In the course of next week we will have the pleasure of welcoming at ilcVlcker's Theatre a new dtbutante who makes her appearance for public honors. Miss Doggett, a young lady of this city, who Is said to be possessed of Mgb ac complishments and personal attractions, that may well qualify her to succeed as an actress, has chosen tbo stage as a profession, and will make her first appearance in the rolr' of “Elvira” In Kotzebue’s drama of “Plzarro.” As Mira Bag gett has never vet “come out” on any stage, we cannot speek of her capabilities, but we may with confidence anticipate lor her every encouragement on tbe part of the public. She has been for a con siderable ilme under the practical tuition of Mrs. Cowell, and if good training alone might Insure success. Ibis Ihct of itself would be sufficient to recommend her. Mlexuw.—“ Griffith Gaunt *’ waa withdrawn on Saturday, after having ran for two weeks very successfully. On Monday, will be presented for tbe tint time, “ Rip Van Winkle.*' The after piece, “Andy Blake,” will Introduce to the audi ence an old favorite, Mrs. Alice Holland, who, since her last appearance at the close of me season in June, has been playing with great success at Milwaukee. Mrs. Holland Is an accomplished sad talented actress,and her re-engagement at the Mu seum will be hailed as an acquisition. On Friday nest Mr. Lc Moyne becomes (be re cipient of a benefit, which we trust will be what be fully merit*, a substantial one. When Dillon retried from the Museum it waa generally feared that his place could never be supplied. Mr. L< Moyne hat supplied It, and to the entire satis faction of all. Bis versatility as a comedian ha* been amply demonstrated, and he has already won (or lumseir a peculiar niche In rvouular favor. Tbe bill selected for the occasion is' “walling for the Verdict,” and the amusing farce of “ Forty and Fifty.” Tux Ctnccs.—Yankee Robinson’s CoM«cum sod Zoological Gardens presents a rich variety of at tractions, and continues to receive a liberal share of public attention. Several additions to tbe menagerie have been made during the week, while the equestrian portion of tbe entertainment Is being kept up to a high standard. Tbe long expected clown, Mr Reynolds, will make his first appearance on Monday. Mr. Robinson takes a complimentary benefit on Thursday next. Tnx Battwak Coxcirts.—The announcement of Mr. EL L Bateman that two concerts wottld take place m the Opcraßouse, with Parepa, Brig noil, Ferranti and Fortnoa as tbo principal sing ers, has created quite so excitement In musical circles.

Tlie Cars Apain Running on Rudolph Street—The VTork —Heating Cars in Winter—Rim vlng All MffbU At about six o'clock on Saturday evening, tbe residents and passers on East Randolph street were astontibed by the unwonted spectacle of a street car mining ever that too rough rare—s sight which bad not bren witnessed far many months, tbongb long wstch-d and wilted for.

It waa at first proposed to commence tbe work of evading on both Madison and Randolph streets wraoJlsneocslr, a* the residents on each were anxious for !u speedy completion. The Board of Public Works bad planned to commence on toe western part of one street and the eastern part of the other at tbe aame time, running tbe cars os toe intact portions of each and crossing over on stmt. Bat U was lotted tbit this Is Us: eod woald cans* more annoyance, by the toUl stupeaalou of travel which would be ueceatftry when the filling ap proached ibe connecting street, thtn If one street wss completed before the other was begun, andao the plan wu changed, sod only >oe cars on Mad ison street «od Bias Island avenue werelntor rupted In the earlier part of the season. and those on Randolph street and Milwaukee avenue in the fall.

AMERICAN LADIES IN PAK'9. There is something almost melancholy In the state of mind of many lady travellers on their arrival in Europe, especially when such are without the executive rapport of hatband and brother. Their discontented oscillations are then unlimited. They ask you, can they get into a French family where they can bear nothing but French spoken, or into some apartme'nt where they can have American comforts! They do not like tbelr boarding house—their sheets are only washed once a month, the bread them is the long cheap yard-meaaurc sort, their breakfasts consist merely of a roll and entree. They ask, do you think the food nourishes you in Paris as it does at home? Would llrcsden be a pleasant city to pass tbe win , ter In? And Nice, how is that for a winter residence, and la it very expensive? Then, besides the general discontent of mamma there ore usually one or two daughters who have come to Europe with the idea that on touching the land this side of the Atlantic some Aladdin's lamp is to* be immediately placed in their hands; of course they arc in a state of disquiet. This may account for the air of pensive sentimentality which some French Journalist fantastically imagines be discovers in the faces ot American girls— Paris Correspondence Boston Adtxrtissr. A SERVANT OIBL CTSEO BT THE POPE’S PET* “ Three columns of the Afonde are filled np by the account of a miracle which took place a few days ago In Parifi, Rue Villedo, No. 11. A servant girl was on her deathbed: she bad already received extreme nnctiou, bad be come speechless, and her eve* had closed, when a confessor entered the death chamber and robbed her eyelids with a small piece of tbe Pope's white flannel petticoat. I trans late literally {soutain* rm taint btanehe). The effect of this new species of fiction, which until now I have never heard of, though 1 havetnrnta considerable amount of mid night oil In poring over books on therapeu tics—was that the young girl, much to the edification of her weeping friends, jumped up and complained of hunger, and drank successively three cups of broth. Her han ger, however. Increased to such an alarming extent that, to aatl'Qr her v.iracltv, provis ions were scot for to a neighboring hotel- This mav re*d like a joke, but yon nave only to open Le Alcmdt of tb*« tbe 10th of Novem ber to be convinced that I bare strictly ad hered to the Indubitable veracity of troth in the above precis of the said threo columns."— Paris Conrspondtnce London Tint*. SAB RINGS WITUOtTKIR PIBBCINO. A smart fellow in London has discovered s way to enable ladies to wear ear rings without having their earsplereed- The fast ening U managed thus: The rosette In front of the ear ring top is the head of a screw, which, by being partly withdrawn, allows the wires to separate, and, on being screwed back, when adjusted, presses the wires on the lobe ot the car; the wires are so con* strutted that they do not uncomfortably press the ear; in met, the fastening, Instead of entering the flesh, clasps it. This logcnl* oos Invention will recommend itself to those who are prejudiced against ear piercing, if they arc not rearf.il that the ear ring will be unsafe, thus worn. BEECHER ON DANCING. He says: “Do not hesitate to dance among your own family and friends, under tire sup position that it Is wrong. It is certainly roar liberty, and it is right and wholesome, home young ladies asked me, 4 Who may we reckon as within the circle of onr family ?’ Whoever is near enough to yon to salute yon arc in your family, and all others may be safely considered as not in jour family.

If a man, in snuffing the caudles, soofla them out. you may be sure be will make a stupid husband. If a man puts bis handkerchief on bis knee while taking his tea, yon may be sure he will make a prudent husband. In the same way, always mistrust a man who will not take the last piece of toast, or Sal' ly Luou, bnt prefers waiting for tbe next warm hatch. It is not unlikely he will make a greedy, selfish husband, with whom you will enjoy no ‘brown’ at dinner, no crust at tea, no peace whatever at home. The man, try dears, who wears goloshes, and la careful about wrapping himself up well before venturing Into the sight sir, not an frequently makes a good Invalid husband, that mostly stopt at home, and Is easily comforted with slope. Tbe mao who watches the kettle, and prevents U boiling over, will not fail, my dears, In his married state, in exercising the same care In always keeping tbe pot boiling. The man who doesn’t lake tea. nl-treats the eat, takes snuff, and stands with hla back to the fire, is a brute whom I would not advise yon, my dears, to marry upon any consideration, either for love or money; but most decidedly not fbr love. But the man wbo, when the tea Is over, is discovered to have had none. Is sure to make tbe best husband. Patience like hla deserves being rewarded with the best of wives and tbe best of mothcrs-ln-law. My dears, when yon meet with such a man, do tout utmost to marry him. In the severest winter he would not mind going to bed first.”— Punch's Pocket Book. DUTIES or A LADl’a MAID. One of these not-to-bc-envled persons, (a race which may be classed with that of gov ernesses,) has lately made disclosures, throw- Ing some light upon tbe women of rank in England. “ Much Is required from os in London,” one of them writes: “We mast, above all, be very punctual, fbr fashionable ladles change their dresses at least five times a day during the season. We must have pol- Isbed manners, be no older than thirty-five years, and always be cheerful andJgood-tem peied, although for weeks we are kept with out sleep until four o’clock in the morning a practice which Is equally injurious to eyes and lungs. We are expected to cut. and tit, and to use the most improved machine, and to dress hair fbr tbe morning, evening and court costume, as well as for the drive; to Iron well, to read, write and cipher; to speak French and German, and, if possible, to have travelled. There is still another func tion of a lady ’s-maid which Is supposed to be a modem introdnctlon, but which Is, In fact, [merely a revival of an ancient custom. We most he able to paint In pastel, not. in deed, after nature, but upon oer. To beau tify our mistresses we must redden the checks, put antimony upon the eyc-llda, pas tel upon the brows, introduce beUa-donna into eyes In order to enlarge the pupils, Saint bine veins upon tbe temples, and use icon paint and pearl-white upon the rest of tbe skin. We most change the hair to a rcdlsh-brown by means of a corroding mate rial, or of l palma raecAfd.’ which Is now used In preference, for that purpose; and we most be possessed of great still.in ap plying all these ingredients, as their nso is universal with the old as well as with the young.” Carlotta Patti, The Paris correspondent of the London Star, November 21, sajs: Carlotta Patti sang last night at a con cert given for her by Monsieur E. de Glrar din, at his private residence. Rue Tanquet. A brilliant audience, composed of-notablli ties of the fashionable and musical world, were Invited to hear this new cantatflce. Among them was Prince Napoleou, M. Darl tnon, the deputy, Baroness de Rothschild, and others. The genera] opinion on Carlotta was that her voice was inferior to that of her bister, and her face, from its extraordinary pallor, less pleasing; still, connoisseurs ad mit her artistic talents to be of a very high order. She sang tbe cavatina in “Linda,” as well os some brilliant variations of extraor dinary difficulty In the “ Carnival de Venlse.” accompanied by M. Frank, and undoubtedly rendered both these arias with true artistic inspiration. The latter are Identical with those composed hy Paganini for his violin, and which hare been arranged for the voice by Benedict. Carlotta asks 1201. to sing at a concert; yet, notwithstanding this some what high tariff, Is In great demand. The Patti family are a perfect dynasty of artists ; it Is said that there Is a younger sister who bids fair to outshine Adelina, and a brother who is a magnificent tenor. Markets by Telegraph.
