In the year of our Lord one, aud on the twenty- ; flf h day ol December of that year, as is general- ' ly bxlieved, Mary g*re birth to the Saviour of the world, without the pains of delivery; and remaining, both in and alter his conception, a pure virgi 1. She stood in need of no assistance usual to her sex on such occasions, and with her own hands wrapped the child in swaddling clotues. The blessed child was brought forth and laid in a mmger, for want of a cradle, in the town of Bethlehem, in the Ian I in J adea. situated on ( the declivity of a hill, in the tribe of Juda, about six or seven miles to the southwest of the city of Jerusalem- At his very birth, the Saviour of the world was exposed to the inclemency of the severest season of the year, to the hard boards of a manger, and to a privation of the most ordinary conveniences and necessaries of life. After the usual lime, the sacrament of the o'd law, and the first leual observances required by the Almighty of the Jews, was complied w:th in the 0 :se of the infant; he was circumcised, and his name was called Jesus. me scriptures lnlorm us that, after the birth 1 of Jesus, the event was announced to the Jew? ! b/ an angel, and to the Gentiles by the appear- j ance of a star in the heavens, placed for the pur- I pose in the lower regions of the atmosphere ; and the Megi, from the confines of Arabia, flocked to his birth-place. After the Magi had departed and the forty days of purification were accomplished, Jesus was carried to Jerusalem, to be eoaseciated to the Lord, according to.the Jewish laW. After thete rites had been complied with, an j angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in the night, ! ayiogt? " Arise and take the chilJ and hit mother and fly Into j Egypt and be thare until I thai! tell thee ; for it will 1 come to pau that Herod will teak the child to destroy ! him " Tha command was obeyed, Jesus was carricd to Egypt, and remained in the town of Her- , 1. opolis ti.l after the death ot Herod? "And the child (Jeaus) grew, and was strengthened, (till of wiidom, and the grace of <Jod was in nin>, and hit parent*, according to the injunction of the law; went every >enr to Jetuwlem at the solemn day of the Passover. And whan he wa* twelve years old and they going up to Jerusalem took with them; and when tha days were ended hi* parent* searched for hinihut could not 6ud him. They sought him anun; their kindled and acquaintance, and not finding him an they expected, they returned inti Jeruialern, seeking him And .after three days it came to pau that tbey found him in the Temple, in the I midnt of tho doctor*, hearing them and asking them ques- 1 tioos. and all that heard him were astonished at hit wis- I dom and his answers, and seeing him they wondered." In answer to his parent's interrogatories, as to 1 hiawhereahouts, Jesus uttered the first words that ' are recorded of hun by the Evangelists. He aid 1? " Hew is it that you sought ne ? Did you not know that I must be abaut ay faihor's batinest 7" No further explanation was asked. j The next event in the life of Jesus that we read , of, was his baptism by John in the river Jordan. He was then driven into the desert by tho spirit, where he remnned forty days and forty nights, undergoing the temptations of the devil. We liave no doubt that our readers are well a-quatnted with the incidents in tho life of Jesus, till the election of the twelve Apostles, and till the time he delivered tho sermon on the Mount. Although this article has already exceeded the ii? Hi ts we laid out for it when we commenced, we , eanuot oniu to insert the cilrbrated sermon :? I THt *BBM01 ON Till MOUNT.

No man caD serve two maatais: tor either he will bat* the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one. and despine the other. Ye cannot serve Uod and mammon.

II ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much mote shall your Father, which l* in heaven, give good things to them that ask him? Theretore all things whatso.ver ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: tor this is the law and the prophet*. Enter ye in at the strait gate; tor wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeih to destruction, an , many there be which go in thereat: because atrait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto lile, and few there be that find it.

Alter that the inci- , dents were so numerous, that it is impossible we could insert tbem her*. Indeed, we do not think it necessary, for we presume they are all lamiliar to our readers. We shall content ourselves with referring to the betrayal of our Saviour?the suicide of the traitor?and his crucifixion and death. Before the seizure of Jesus, he suffered the , most intense agony in the garden. Upon his en- : tering ttie garden, he said to his disciples:? "Sit yon here till I go and pray yonder; pray like' j Win. jour.eirea, last you enter into temptaUon." Hi* disciples, however, dul not pray, but slumbered. Tac fourth time he waktd them up, saying:? ii i> ?u<7u?u, ium uuur j* uunie. uenoia <ne son 01 | .NTin hull be betrayed into the handi of sinneis; and while he waa yet ipeaking, behold Jurfai, ooe of the lj, and a band of aoldieu ami terranti of the High Priest, approached." Judas then betrayed him; and * " They drew near and laid hand* on Jesus, and held htm." Jesus was then examined and judged by Caiphas, the high priest, who condemned him. He was then taken before Pilate us ratify the sentence that had been passed upon him; but, after arraying the accusers, Pilate said, " 1 find no cause in this man." The priests and tcril>es observing Pilate to be favorably disposed towards Jesus clamored the more lor his conviction; but Pilate remitted him to Herod, of Galilee, as he whs of his jurisdiction; but Herod sent him back clothed in a white garment to Pilate, who remained mercifully disposed towards hiin. He, however, was constrained to acquiesce in the demands of the people that be should be crucified, ard he gave him up to them. " And they took Jetas, and after they had mocked him they took ofr the purple from him and put his own garment* on him, ai d bearing hi* own cross he went torth to that place which ii called Calvary; there they cmcl tte?t him and with him two otber?, tobbers, on* on the right and the one on the left, and Jem? in the midst." Tints we see the misery and torture with which our blessed Saviour was inflicted from bis birth to his death, and the sacrifice that wm made for us by our Heavenly Father. This day Christians of all denominations celebrate th? glorious advent of his birth.

Oale of the 11th off October at | Ktjr WmI and Havana. The terrible hurricane which swept over Ha. ana, Key Weil, 4cc., on the 10th and 11th of Ootober last, will long be remembered with sadness by many whose friends were of the number that perished at these places in consequence of the X isistless gale,which, contemning the fabrications of masons and carpenters, swept substantial lighthouses, as well as Arm frame buildings, from their foundations, and buried their inmates ! amid their ruins, or swept all together into the ! Gulf. Among the vessels that stood out that l'eerfu^ storm was the U. S. brig Perry. All that could be done by her officers and craw was done, in a manner suited to the emergency which existed. The tremendous pressure of the wind upon the brig left no other course for them to pursue but that of putting her before the wind, where she was kept during the prevalence of the gale. Annexed is a diagram of the course kof this vessel: ? THB COUBSE OP THE HURK1CANE OF Till 10TH AND 11th or OCTOBER, IN WHIOK THE O. S. BRIO PSMY WA?

JjS j 9 \ *t ,'S / j: YThis wood-cut shows ac urately the course of j the Perry from the time of her leaving Havana ' until the storm struck-her, and from that time (9 o'clock 90 min. on the morning of the 11th) until ] she was driven ashore on the Baya Honda Key. | The diagtam was copied by our correspondent at Key West, from the chart used by the office rs of the brig, on which the course of the vessel J was pricked off every hour by her faithful offi- 1 cers, true to their duty amid the greaiest peril. It appears that, at one time, the Perry could not have been more than four miles from the Moro 1 light at Havana; and had her course varied one " plint to leeward, she must have gone ashore on ( the coast of Cuba. In that case she and all on . board would have met with the melancholy fate i of the Hornet and Grampus. | The rotary character of the itorm is very strik. I ingly illustrated by the course of the vessel, and ' is given as an illustration of the theory of the e curvilinear motion of the winds. The act or * 8 scudding, as we are informed, was one of the-last necessity, the brig being hove down, not by the | suddenness with which the gale struck her, but | by the pressure of the wind, which kept her lee- f ward guns under wnter, and left no hope to es cape sinking, but in putting her before the fear- * ful blast. Her helm being put up* she answered | it, and her two bow and alter waist guns, togeth- J er with her anchors, being thrown overboard, re- j lieved her, and she ultimately escaped. j It will be recollected that Com. Sloat, Iroin the | Pacific, wa* on board the the time, and ^ he speaks in the highest terms of praise of the ^ skill of Commander Blake and his officers. What Next 1?It appears that scvoral alder- i men at their meeting yesterday, to vote $5,000 to 1 the volunteers, took legal advice relative to their j patriotism. See report of proceedings in ano- c t ler column. This is a capital idea- We hope | that in future these same aldermen will, when < they contemplate voting themselves a good din- 1 ner, ask some fat lawyer, a judge of game, , whether thev shall have canvass backs or venison 1 With dinners and patriotism, our Corporation 1 Attorney will have plenty to do to supply legal opinion to the upper branch of our Common Council. 1 1NTKLL.IQENCK FROM THE KJATK OF KXOOD llOPK- ' ?The flue ship Yamchi, Captain Steele, arrived ' last evening from Canton, touching at the Cape 1 of Oood Hope, bringing account* from the latter { place to the 25th of Ocober. < The intelligence brought from the Cape is hit*** | resting, a* showing the progress of that colony and ot the Caffer war. i It is to be seen in the news annexed that the I English mode of warfare is a little worse than 1 ours, although the Knglish have abused us not a little tor taking our provisions'trom the Mexicans, { and paying a fair market price therefor.

It appears that tbe regulation, adopted on tbe retirement of the convicts from their work fer the night, is for each conviot to put out two of his fingers outside the bars, which signal informs the keeper as he passes along, that each man is in his cell. However, this convict devised a plan to cheat the keeper, by cutting a piece of pine wood to represent two lingers, which he fastened on the bars, in order to deceive the keeper. This scheme had thedesired effect, for instead of going into his cell, he secreted himself in one of the outer shops, and when darkness came, he managed to elude the wotchtul eye of the guards, and escaped from tbe prison.

Communication from tkt Mayor ?The Mayor aent in a communication oalling the attention of the Common Council to the proceedinga of a mooting of cttixana held on the 33d inatant, at Mechanica' Hall, 479 Broadway, where a reaolution waa adopted " requeuing the Mayo, of the city of New York to convene a apecial meeting ot the Common Council, and to reoommend an appropria tion from the city traaanry of $6 000, or a*oh other aum aa, in the opinion of the Common Council, ahould bo deemed adequate for the purpoae of defraying the noooa ary expenaea of the Now York volunteer*. Aid. Ha at moved that the reeolutiena paaaed in the Board of Aaaiatanta at their laat meeting be read. Tha following are the reaolntiona offered in the Board of Aaaiatanta by Mr. Byrne Reeolved, That the aum of >3000 be, and the aame fa hereby appropriated for the benefit of the let regimen: of New York volunteer*, under the command of Col.

Aid .vlimioLi atated that ho waa in favor of tha war, in fever of proocuttng K to ita concluaion. but he waa not in favor of taking the money to carry it on from the , / ' ivTininrai uu una > n- fc quisition on the Bute for troop* and th? general government oufcht to pejr them. Tha oity, he raid, tu ?1ready largely in debt and the people were taxed a dollar and Ave cent* on every hundred dollar* Tbe money which wae abeut to be appropriated did not belong to the Aldermen. We can only reach it through the comptroller, laid he, and He payment may be etopped. and I believe will be at >pped, U the appropriation ia made. Let us open a subscription, and pat oar msmee down lor what amount we pleaee, and then Mod it out to oar oeo titueota for them to follow rait. Ho would, if it wore necessary, take up arm* in defence of the dtv, bat he wa* accountable to bl* constituents for hi* official aot*, and he wu not afraid to uauae the roponMbility of recording hi* vote again*! this measur*. Ho wa* for keeping the door of the treasury cloeed Aid. Livinorron saidJhat he would not profott to be willing to go a* far a* any other; for that matter, he did not believe any of the gentlemen present were willing to go to Mexico. He had always boon opposed to appropriating money for military puiposes, but Col. Burnett was placed in a peculiar position. The national Government had refused to receive any oompania* into la ser> vice until the regiment* to whioh they belong, were fully organised, and hence it had bora necessary for the volunteer* to incur expense* whioh it seemed to him to be proper for the board to appropriate money for. It would be better for our tax paying citizen* to At out this regiment than to protract the war with Mexioo. Our city, said he. is supported by commerce, we are a commercial people, an* our interest* mu*t be crippled by the existence of war with a foreign nation. Aid. Bkksom said he should vote against the resolution. When the Board voted for the appropriation of the $1 000, some time since, he told then that that was only tbe beginning?that the other four or five tboassnd would soon be called for. If a foreign soldiery were at our doors, he would willingly vote money to our own troops, but no such state of things existed. He had road the namea of the gentlemen on the committee appointed at the meeting held at Mechanics' Hall, and moat of them i were under salaries from the United States government. * There wna it rat o Mnsrl? wi <!/? > a n i s* antnnv lnam> n nil 11 was the mechanic and working man that paid the taxes, after nil. AM Prmii voted in favor of concurrenre with the Board of Assistants. As to what our conitituenta expect of ua, said he, it might be supposed if gentlemen p.esse, that they do not lend u* here to eat and drink at their expense. If the State Legislature were in session, he did not doubt but that body would make an appropriation; but it was not, and it was necessary that something should be done. He thought that the requisite aid ought to come from ether quarters; but since the nocoesity, he wa* in favor of the appropriatioa being made Ald. Robcbts wanted to know whether the Common Council had ari<htto vote away this money. If they had, he should be in iavor of the resolution, hut he thought thoy bad not the right. As the Government had called for the troops, they would probably provide for their support He should on the whole vote against the appropriation. Alj>.
