The dachas It-ng been devoted to innocent festivity, and ffce decoration of cbnrcbes witb evergreen, imposing religious services and the giving of I ritcali. are some of tiie pleasing relics of the olden tun* still left to us. This holiday has aln.-tys beer the occasion here for family rennior. and for giving thanks to Almighty Gcd for tbe blessings of the year, and for the birth of our Kedeemer. The day was remarks, bly pleasant yesterday tor the wi nter season, as the tun sbjne brightly, and there was just sharpness enough in the atmosphere to make exercise pleasant. The street* were thronged with joyous crowds, and tbe Churches. hi which service* appropriate to the day were in progress, were all well attended An account ot s.rr.e of tbe religious observances will be found elsewhere la our paper, as will tne few breaches of the pea?.e. which disturl*d the gemral good order which prevailed throughout tbe District. Our streets were almoat as quiet as on Sunday. The juveniles as usual were wide awake' and seemed disposed to make the most of tneir opportunities, realizing ibat "Christmascoae* but once a year." At night tbe theatres and other placet- ol amusement were packed to suffocation, and the crowd on :he avenue )ast be. lore midnight was almost as great a? on a pleasant afternoon. EQUITABLE RKPRESENTATION. Tie subject of tbe necessity of a cbanze in our present system ^>f representation which re. turns single members from electoral districts by a plurality vote, is being earnestly dis- j cus*ed in many sections of the country. It is ' said it leads to abuses; disfranchises the localities which cast the votes, and send* member* tc Congress who only get one.third of the %o;es of the electors of their district, tuus minorities to rule. The problem to i?e solved 1*. how to remodel the system so as to prevent ma ;orities from crushing out minorities, and ' minorities from ruling over majorities. Several j plan - have been suggested, among the most practicable of which may be mentioned tbtt ! of tbe abolition of local constituencies, making all nominees candidates at large. To deter- ! mme who shall be elected ?ue whole number ot votes cast is divided by tbe number of mem. i bers to be returned, which gi ve? tbe number of j votes necessary for an election. Thus, minor- | itie?. can consolidate their votes upon . audi- , dates of their choice without fear of b*>tug tricked by the ingenious devices of a plurality j role. ' - > . Ciiakkbav.?This acior is one of the ' best of onr eccentric comedians, and in some characters it is conceded that he has never been equalled. His speciality, "Sam,"' is one ! of these. The characters in this comedy are : ?o exaggerated as to verge on burlesque, bnt it ! is none the less enjoyable on that account and ! Chanfran's impersonation of tne hero is a mas'er piece. A large and appreciative au dience greeted his first appearance at Wall's * 'pera House on Monday evening, and general satisfaction was expressed at tbe excellent ca?t of the play and the manner in which it ! was placed on the stas-e. It waa repeated to a ' full bonse laat night, and will be given again this evening.

The following is a translation of the address of Mr. Berthemy: Mr. Pkk?idbnt: I ha\e the honor to place ' in your hands the letters which accredit me jn : ihe quality of F.nvoy F.xtraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary ol an, Majesty the Lmpe. ror of the French. 111 confiding to me the mission to represent him near your Kxcellency, my Sovereign has spe<ially charged me to make known to you the value he attaches to the relationsof friendship which exist between France and the I'ni. ted States ol America Te maintain these relations, to draw them more close, ir it oe possiMe in view of the development of interests comr.on to the two countries, such will be theconstant aim of my efforts, and I bave firm hope j to attain it. if. an I am in advance assured, the Governmental people of the United Slates share in those sentiments of which 1 bring to this place the sincere expression. The President replied as follows Mr. Bkrthbmv? Sir Grateful affection toward ihe t rench nation is among the earliest. the most profound, and the most enduriug sentiments of the people and Government of the United States. We constantly trv to believe that no Interests of either country can ever require Mieuatiou or antagonism between them. While ifitimate commercial interests tend to bind them tjgether, as you have justly observed, they nave at the same time a common aim in th?> advancement of civilization and humanity throughout the world. In expressing these feelings. I am only repeating what tas been uniformly said by the 1 inied Slates siuce they become sovereign. We have had much reason to be pleaded with ihe conduct ot your predecessor, the Marquis de Montholon. Be assured, Mr. Berthemy,that no consideration or courtesy will be withheld which shall tend to make the performance ol your duties agreeable aud pleasant IM KKA.sED COMPENSATION. Me ssrs. .1. M. Blanchard, Frank Geise. and 1 M. K Howell, a committee of the clerks in the Pension office, have received a communicati on from Mr. .Iam<-s A. Morgan, Chief Clerk of the Pension office, in which he says: "The omi-siou from your memorial ' (to Congress,) of its endorsement by this office, must. 1 think, have been an oversight: for 1 llnd none of ita advocate? more emphatic ia iheir recommendation for increased compensation than the ?X>romisnioner of Pensions in his last annual report. In referring to this subject be employs toe following expressive language ; 'The inadequacy of the salaries now aU loweu to clerks in the more responsible positions in this office, and the marked inequality between these salaries and those paid in other department* to officers entrusted with duties no more arduous aud requiring no higher order of qualifications lu any respect, are urged upon your earnest attention. An addition of fifty percent., throughout, to the salari*? or all clerks and employes as fixed by taw before the la;e war, would hardly make good the advance which has taken place in the expanses of living. Nor would such increase more than keep pace with the average advance of wages and salaries in other callings." 1 heartily concur in these views and ia the measure which you are urging upon the attention of Congress FRAUD I"PON THK PENSION OFFICE .lames G Smith, of Battle Creek, Mich , hat been indicted and held to bail fer his appearance at the March term of the United States Court, at Betroit, Mich.

FseorjcTEit with BcROLana?Private Jot Wtlhnmt r-f th' Third VTard Potict, Shot?Wound PrvbmN't hxa'al ?This morning. Sergt Austin made the following report to Lieut. Skippon, of the police: ' I>ei ember 'Jtj'h. 4 o'clock a m ?Officer Williams was sbot by one of two men. suspicions characters, whom he ordered to bait on 7th street, near N north. Officer Shea, on the adjoining best, was near him when shot, and went to his assistance, and helped him to tbe residence of f ather McCarthy. Dr. J. T.Howard refused to attend. Drs. l?orsey aud Prentiss responded promptly, and dressed his wound They decided that he could be safely removed, and he was taken to bis home on sib. near E street, Dr Dorsey attending mm " From the statement of the wounded man, it appears that an nttempt was made to enter a jewelry store in tbe Fourth Ward, and the private watebman was following these men. Williams, seeing the pursuit, went into the street and called them to halt. He walked to within about twelve yards of them, when the t* I lest of tbe two men turned upon blm and fired a pistol. Tbe ball struck a brass bntton on the left breast of the officer's coat, and drove it into his body. The surgeons succeeded in extracting the button, hut tbe hall ba? not been fonnd. Tbe external hemorrhage is very slight, and tbe patient appears to be cbeertnl; out it is feared that he is bleeding internally, and that the wonnd may prove lalal. Officer Williams has a good reputation as an officer: is a married man. with a family of small children. A deposition of the wounded man, taken by J ustice Thompson at ten t^clock this morning, fully confirms the above statement. MntPlR.?Yesterday Coroner Woodward held an Inquest in view of the body of Wm E. Hum side, (colored.) in a chanty between D and E and l?tb and ibtta etree's west. It appeared that tbe night previous the deceav.l and Joseph Hryant, (colored.) both old men, made a bet ol a pint of liquor on some disputed point, and get into a quarrel, which culminated in a fight. Tbe other inmates o' tbe house put them out, and they continnel their tight uuiil Buruside was carried into the house m a helpless condition, and died about davligbt yesterday morning. There were no c?ri<ms bruises apparent or other marks of violence upon bis person, and the jury was unable to decide upon the cause of death. Bryant was arrested by Officer Harris, of the 1st ward, and taken before J ustice Drury, who sent htm to jail for court. BrEGLARious Attmi't.-Abont 1 o'clock tbis morning an attempt was made to enter and rob the .jewelry store of Louis Baum, corner of 7tb and G streets uorth. The burglars broke the lock from tbe door, and gainrd an entrance, but were frightened off by Mrs. Kidwell, a lady who lives in the bouse. Officer Becker and private watebman John McCurmisck were soon on the spot, but the thieves escaped without booty. The fur store ol Edward Uoheu, 7th, between G and H streets, was entered about 4 o'clock and robbed ol furs valued at *?30. It is supposed that the party concerned in the shooting of officer Williams is the same that perpetrated ooth these acts.
