So deaf As the 24th december Al Hofei Tebesz Ifcic beloved wife of do not entertain co weak an imagination As that your registers and your Bonds your affidavits and your Sufferance your pockets and your clearances Are what form the great securities 6f Jour Commerce do not dream that your letters and your instructions and your suspending clauses Tun the things that hold together the great coh texture of this mysterious whole. These things do not make your . Dead instruments passive j tools As they Are the spirit of the English communion that gives All their life and Efficacy to them. It is the spirit of the English Constitution which infused through Tea mighty mass pervades feeds unites invigorates Vivi fies every part of the Empire even Down to the minutest on conciliation with America. The turbulence of our Assembly has ceased fora while Anthas ceased for the time being to vex the season at which peace and Good will were pro claimed id the shepherds who watched their docks by night beneath a sky As Bright with stars As is on own. If we could Hope that the operation of per Sonal invective and the paltry schemes of paltry men an by night of a better spirit and a coming better time we might look Forward to the new year with Hope if not with Confidence and have a Trust that the future will not resemble the past. Unfortunately the spirit of the season when Hope Springs in the human breast in spite of its falsification in years gone by cannot be made symbolical of our Public life and truth compels us to record that the curtain has failed but upon one act of a Serio comic play which is Only to Likely to be continued in the coming year and form another amongst the Many unpleasant episodes which Are already on record. The words which we have placed at the head of this article words spoken when it yet possible for great Britain to Avert a War of Independence la the greatest colonies she Ever had have breathed through them the real breath of life the breath which makes of a people a Beacon to other Ages and enables them to Rise Superior to paltry cares and Petty vices which though Small in themselves and often unseen the foundations of nations and make Public life no better than a hucksters shop. The season i teaches us to Hope and to Hope because one grand event brings the offer of salvation to All. As Johnson said on a wholly different subject we Are not Here to take an account of a parcel of empty casks Bat of the potentiality of wealth exceeding the dreams of avarice. Stir business is not to take account of the taunts of one political party against another to follow the quips and Cranks the innuendoes the charges and. Counter charges to watch those who give the lie and Tell the lie they give but to school our minds to Broad views of events and to raise. Ourselves above the struggles of those who tear each other in the. Slime of Pur political dismal swamp. A picture is not made to be smelled at said. Sir Joshua key nolds to an Over Clever critic who thrust his nose against one of his paintings and it Isa bad thing. For any artist for i any Community for any people when observers find nothing to observe but the nude details 1 instead of j a great general. Result when this is the Case we May be sure that the Mecha Nical work absorbs the intellectual that the Means Are everything and the end nothing. This is what Burke so eloquently rebuked when he called attentions to the futility of the belief in the mechanism and checks an counter checks on f which the narrow minded statesmen of _ his Jay and which have been re produced Here in Bur time in spite of the experience of the past and devoted into sort of Creed which has startled itself with a name As inappropriate Jaa it is no Torii for and Cumont live on such things. The individual of and lofty tic by arcs of those who live Only personal serve and it fas id Tongu that we can have me the sum of Paldy , pee that a Lari Lwood grow beneath the Shade of noxious weeds that shut it. The air. These to elections. Come Home forcibly to its at Tab Heini bae Assiut is ohis which bids the Christian world unite id prayer and Praise because it is Christ Matt hot because there is oho sect or another or because any Given form of worship i observed. Of we Rake amongst tha dust and dirt of creeds turn Ovet the rubbish of religious where Lurk the be so of h. Thousand moral disorders we might Well be eve that christianity does not exist and dust and ashes Are All that remain from the High Promise and tidings of peace of which we have heard. Bul As the Spanish voyage to stood silent on a Peak in Balea add saw spread before him the vast Pacific Oreatt that he privilege to be the first a thus the behold so we May Hope that the usual Elevation of the season enables the Way worn traveller the weigh the devious paths of a weary life to Calth a sight of the mighty Ocean of a future Joy and As Tennyson has said see Distant Gates of Eden glean is there nothing in life for the women but to suckle fools and for. The Ted but to chronicle Small Beer the question naturally Ocean at a season when solemn thoughts intermingle with on rejoicings and when we ate impelled to reflect on he list and the future even As we Hail the Union of families and follow out As let us Hope we do follow the Good old custom of letting the feuds of the past year die out and the family grievance the hardest of All grievances to be forgotten fade away. We Dak at least All those who Are politically Bent Are there peace and Good will or Are we a divided people is there a War of classes 1 is it Trade that the people we see in the streets Are serfs and slaves that they Are making Holiday in Fetters watched Over by a lot of bloated oppressors who scowl at their mirth and hate them be 6adse they can oppress them no further 1 the very words in which a Creed once familiar to the lips of the so called leaders of the people is make it appear absurd and incredible when Redd by the sober Light of Yariv end to. May Well wonder that there could have been such language used or being used tolerated Tor the pet sons on whom it a Bel add about whom it a Manifest lie. Where is the social War of which we have heard and where is the political one i they ate both to be heard of in the speeches of toed who have proved to be Blind leaders of the Blind who hate striven to disguise the great principle which should and must unite the whole people in one great brotherhood moved by the Saide emotions rejoicing common gain and mourning a common loss standing together for the cause of Telle Freedom and Sekido to work out the social problems nowhere yet solved in this world and Only capable of 6ved partial solution by those who Are imbued with a spirit Superior to the. Petty strikes and jealousies by which died ate dragged Down to tha very dust. From this spirit alone can arise the ties which a Burke has finely said though Light As air Are Strong As links of they Are the Cement by which a tides Are bound together acting As Gravity acts alike on the world in its orbit and the Dewdrop on the Flower. They Are the common interests the mental harmonies which distinguish the civilised Man from the Savage which give him aspirations and sympathies not bounded by his own family of inspired. By his own desires. V this is the doctrine which will be preached from thousands of pulpits to Day this is the lesson which Christi Anity is said to teach in contrast to All that paganism hid to proclaim it is the lesson which has to be Learned by every individual who would Lead a worthy and Happy life and by every people who desire to be a thle nation As distinguished from a fortuitous con course of atoms. As Shelley has described the lady in his sensitive Plant whose form eras up borne by a Lovely mind. Which dilating had moulded her Mien and. Motion like a sea Flower enfolded beneath the Ocean so Are Peoples developed inward meanness will show in outward deformity narrow Aims will be manifested in paltry actions Pelly spite will be displayed in legislative abuse class hatreds. In. National disgrace and social enmities in National contempt and maybe in. National fixin nowhere and at no time have a people profited by lending this Tielves to the struggles of political time watchers and time servers everywhere we see that As the mind Moulds the body set the spirit of the people Moulds the nation and just As thousands will be told to Day that he who does a Good act Fot the soils Sake does it for the Sake of the father so we May say and say with so much truth that we May Well wonder that there is still any doubt that every Man who does his Best to keep his pm Liliola life Sweet and Pute and acts for High motives acts for the whole people of whom he is but As a single Grain of dust in a desert storm. Such Harmony is there in the universe such interdependence amongst physical moral and Reli Gions matters alike that without the True spirit the. All informing. Mind which up bears what Yte Call the Man your army would be a base rabble and your Navy nothing but a Rotten Timber whilst Christmas would Only come to remind is.
