The poet Bombard sat in hU little dwellingroom in tbe fifth story of a pictareegue old house in a cloeely bnilt street or a certain ducal capital. Near him played his three roey boyr; while Ermingarde, his sweet, blonde wife, plied her household tasks, enly pausing now < and then to tarn a cheerful glance toward the dormer window nook where Bernhard was writing, or softly to leave a kiss on his broad, white Crew, as she ps?ad to and fro behind his ehair. It was the week before Christmas; and the three boys, gathered in a knot before thebl??.iIng lire, were reoounting the last Tear's gifts of the good Christ-kindchen, and Innocently wondering what they would receive this year "I know what I would like !" exclaimed Paul, earnestly clasping his little hands, 'if bat the dear Christ-kindchen will find me worth of it?a book of fairy talee, filled wi'h beautiful oolored pictures, like the one we saw in tbe bookseller'a windaw." "And T," aaid Hertzian, "can think of nothing I would like so well as a rocking b >rs?. n very little larger than that of our neighbor's mi Heinrich, dewn in the third story. "As for me," lisped little Pertl, ' I would oboose a basket of sugar plums, wrapped in golden and silver paper, and??" "Oh, I bar* it! joyfully interrupted Hermann. "Lotus write the dear Christ-kindcbeu a letter asking for these very jrifts!" "Papa, papa!" and the children sprang to his side?"will you be so kind as to write a little letter for us?" "And to whom my little men ?" asked the father, lookiog up in smiling surprise. 'To Christ-iindcben, papa; we will tell yon what to say." And Bernhard prepared to write, at his boys' dictation: " Dear good Cknst-tindeH$n?Do please, bring us a rocking horse, a book of fairy tales, with lovely pictures, and a basket of sugar I plums, this Christmas; and do not forget, dear, dear. Christ-kindchen, that we live in room No 20, fifth story, of bouse No. 340, Linden ^ Strasse. Your "Paul, Herm an*, asd Little Pibtl." When the letter was written, neatly folded a * ni *_ _ ? aau luareBDca -io vansi-Kinaccen," tneboys persuaded Bernhard to open his window, and oast it far oat on the ro?f, confident that those heavenly eyes would look down and see It, all in good time. That night there arose a great storm of wind and snow, and the little white messenger was lifted np and borne over the high roofs of more than one street to the splendid Government Square, where it rested at last on the ledge of one of the upper casement* of the palaee of the Grand Duke. Long after the next morning'* son had risen over the snow covered city, a blue-eyed lady stood at this easement; and looki&gout on the bright winter picture, beheld the tiny letter where it had lodged without?the address "To ChriU-kindchen, 1 in full view. Hastily summoning her maid, the Counteas Victoire directed the window to be opened, and the folded paper handed to her. She lost no time in reading it. "D?ar children !" and as the fair lady finished the little petition, tears stood in her beautiful ayes, "God has guided their simple words to me, perhaps that I may take the place of their dear Christ-ktndehen"" ? * Christmas-day dawned brightly on the little group of eager expectants : and as Bernhard and Ermingarde washed their happv faces and listened to their impatient longing for night to aob??thia nivkt whan u th? nkiMwm drml? believed, Chrut-kindohen would answer their letter with the so-desired gifts?the food paresU had very often to turn away to conceal their emotion. Alas! their slender parse would not allow them the luxury of procuring these little presents for their children. After their early dinner, in preparing which Ermiacarde had exerted all her skill/o^ides expending the best part of her last florin in a Christmas cake, to which Bernhard and the boys did full justice, the dear little woman prepared them all for a walk in the brilliant Christmas streets, trusting that the children would beoome absorbed in the gay scene without, and so forget their expected visit frem Christ-kindchen. .With this hope aha and Bernhard permitted them to liager at pleasure before the beautifully arranged shop windows, and before the lottery boo'hs, where Bernhard was tempted to risk a few kreutiers for his little people, and won, to their delight, aoomet of the most delicious bon bons. When night oame on, and the lamps began to twinkle along the crowded street, the little party found themselvee at some distance from the Linden Strasee, whereupon the careful mother prevailed upon them to turn their footsteps homeward. But now, to her sorrow, the ehiidren'a thoughts again reverted to Christkiadehen and the expected gifts. "We will find them awaiting us; nieJu so. r\*bt mutt**?me/it to, h*6tr papa r" was the question of eaob little heart. Impatience lent win^s to their feet, and springing through the great door opening upon the atone stairway leading up to their eitio home , the three boys reached the narrow fifth etory landing, in ad ranee of their weary he <*yhearted parents. A joyous shout from the boys, and a flood of light falling in ware* over the wiudia$ stairway, now startled Bernhard and Ermiog^rde Hastily mounting to side of their enildrm? what a sight met their eyee! The door lending into thair litUe room was vide open, and iii the oentre of the tidy room rose a beautiful CArijfiwat- Tret?a tapering, dark-green fir? ia whoee graceful branches biased innumerable waxen tapers, between whioh hung the loveliest toys that ever were seen, golden and silTer-ooTered fruits, nuts and sugar plums; on a little round table beneath lay three prettily-bound books, and near by stood a fine rocking horn, just as if be were awaiting a rider. Let the eurtain fall on the transports of the ika k il^inai ant ftf tka narants VUIHIVH, WV WIIMI u<m v> ,uw pmwvvs, their gratitude to tb? generous unknown, as they watched their darling boys around the radiaat table. There were happy, flowing hearts in the little attic home tuat Christma* night. The next day two Utters were brought to Bernherd. The first announced to him that the volume of poems submitted by him to the eourtbookseller a few weeks before, had been received, accepted, and would "be published at th? earlieat possible day." Good news; but the other letter, whieh"bore a government aeal raised the happiness of the little family to a height still greater. It was Bombard's appointment to as office under the Grand Duke, the duties of which were little more than nominal, but whose salary would at ooee plaoe his family la a position of oom para tire ew. Tears later, whea Bernhardt name as a peat had beoome knowa and honored throughout his fatherland, the still lovely Oountesa Vie tot re eonfeseed to him and Ermingarde the part she had takea ia answering the letter of > 1, Hermann, and Parti?aow grown to M manly yoatba?to Chrlet-kindohen; and alao the fact of her having MirUd her influanca with the Grand Duke ud Daeheas (after learning that the father of the boys, and Barnard, the riaiag pott war* ona and the aae pereon,) in obtaining tor bin tbe governBeat appointment ?Horn* Journal.

Mr Bangs asked bow it was tbat tbe minds of membera here bad undergone such a change since they voted for tbe resolution. They must have known tbe reaaons stated by tbe Mayor be fore be announced th*-m It la a wlae movement on the part of this Corporation to get rid of the st>ck by a transfer to Individual ready to build the road, and the town will be the better for It If thia ttock, which we all admit to be woithleta, la given away to auch Individual! If thereby the rond Is built. Mr. Marbury thought thin Corporation could get as much aid from Congress for tbe road aa the Individual seeking to purchase the at>>ck. ><r Bang* said the Mayor signed the resolution, knowing tbe matter wa? in his own hands, and he could make the tranafer or not, aa he might -hose; and although be (the Mayor) aaya be will yield to the wish of a majority of the board after tbey have maturely conaldered the matter, he (Mr B.) doubted if tbe Mayor would naake tbe transfer if required to do ao by the boards. He hoped tbe matter would be permitted to rest where it is. Mr. Tenney said the resolution was brought In by ord?r of the bonrd. and he Voted fot it because h>* thought Individuals would urge the matter of tbe road bef >fe Congress as a corporation would not He (Mr Tencey) called attention to what the Mayor sava about the Corporation belnir still responsible for the amount of their subscription if they dispose of the stock to an Irresponsible person We may give up the control of ths road to an irresponsible person and be still held accountable for the subscription of a quarter of a million dollars, and be made to pay it. On that point he would vote for the repeal. Mr Plckrell was a friend of the Metropolitan railroad He asked why the Mayor did not veto the resolution: and In answer to the point made in the Mayors message, he (Mr P ) referred to a former message of that officer, in which he (Mayor Addison I tcok the ground that the town was not responsible for tbesubecrlptlon He(Mr Plckrell) believed the road was now in a fairway to be built, and thought we should not beg Couxresi first for bread and tbsn to put It in our mouths, but that we should help ourselves. Mr Bangs said he Watt not argota^ for the tramfer, but only Wanted the matter to rest where It now II, and asked gentlemen urging the repeal if tkey were willing to trust the Mayer.
