In hlasermon at Brooklyn, preached the Sunday nfter Christmas day, Rov. T. Do Witt Tnlmaie took his text from LuUo 11 10: "And they enmo with hns to nnd found Mary and Joieph, and tho babo lying in tho mnngar." Dr. Talmaga said: •Tho black window shutters of a December night wero thrown open nnd somo of tho best singers of n world whore thoy all sing stood there, and putting bacU tho drapery of cloud chnnted a peaco anthem, until tho echoes of hill and valley applauded and encored the hallelujah ciiorus. Come, let us go Into that Christmas scono ns though wo hnd never before worshlpod at the manger. Hero is a madonna worth looking at I wonder not that tho most frequent name In all lands and in all Christian centuries is Mary. And thcro aro Marys In palaces and Marys in cabins, and though German and French and Italian and Spanish and English pronounce It dtffcrontly, thoy nro all namesakes of tho ono whom wo find on a bed of straw, with her pale fuco against the soft check of Christ in tho night of tho nativity. All the groat pointers hara tried, on canvas, to present Mary nnd her child and tho Incidents of that most famous night of tho world's history, llaphuol, in tlirco different masterpieces, colo- brntod them. Tintoretto and Chirlan- dajo surpassed themselves in thn nd 'ration of the Ma?l. Correggio needed to do nothing more than his madonna to become immortal. The Madonna of tho Lilly, by Lonnardo da Vinci, will klndlo the admiration of all ages. But all tho gallorlos of Dresden aro fnrgot- ton when I think of the small room of that gallery containing the Slstino ma­ donna. Yet all of thorn wero copies of St. Matthew's madonna, and Luke's madonna, tho inspired madonna of tho old Hook, which wo had put Into our hands wltan wo wore infants, and that wo hope to havo under our heads when we dio. Behold, in tho first placo, that on tho first night of Christ's life Ood honored tho brute creation. You cannot got Into that Bethlehem barn without going pnst tho camels, tho mules, tho dogs, the oxen. Tho brutes of that stable heard the first cry of tho Infant Lord. Soma of tho old painters roprcsant the oxon nnd camels kneeling that night tieforo the now born babo. And well might thoy kneel Ilavo you ovor thought that Christ carao among other things to nlloviato tho sufferings of tho bruto creation? Was it not appropriate that Ilo should, during tho flr*t fow days and nights of Ills life on earth, bo surrounded by tho dumb boasts, whoso moan and plaint and bellowing hava for oges been it prayer to Ood for tho arresting of their tortures and the righting of their wrongs? It dl I not merely "happen so" that tho unintelligent creatures of Ood should have been that night in close neighborhood. Not a kennol in all tho centuries, not a bird's nest, not a worn out horse on towpath, not a hord freezing in the poorly built cow pen, not a freight oar in summer tlmo bringing tho beeves to market without water through a thousand miles at agony, not a surgeon's room wltnosslng the struggle of fox, or rabbit, or pigeon, or dog in the horrors of vivisection, but bos an interest in thn fact that Christ was born in a stable surrounded by brutes. Ho remembers that night, and the prayer ho heard in their pitiful moan; he will answer In the punishment ot those who maltreated the dumb brutes. What an army of dofonse all ovor the land are the faithful watch dogs. And who aan tell what tho world owes to the horse, and camel, and ox, far transportation? And robin and lark havo, by the cantatas with which thoy have filled orchard and forest, mare than paid for tho few grains thoy havo picked up for their sustenance. Whoa you abuso any creature of Qod you strike its Creator, and you tnsult tho Christ who, though Uo might havo boon welcomed into life by prlncos, and taken Ills first Infantile slumber amid Tyrlan plush and canopied couebos, and rippling waters from royal aqueducts dripping into basins of ivory and pearl, chose to bo born on the level with a cow's horn, or a camol's hoof, or a dog's nostril, that ha might be the alleviation of animal suffering as well as the redeomor of man. Standing then; as I imagine now' I do, In that Bethlohom ntght with an Infant Christ on tho one side and the spoeohless creatures of Qod on the other, I cry, look out, how you strike the rowel Into that horse's side. Take oft that curbed . bit from the bleodlng mouth. Remove that saddle from that raw back. Shoot not for fun that bird that Is top email for food. Forgot not to put wator into the oago of thatoanary. Throw out some crumbs to those birds caught too far north in tho winter's taolemeaoy. Arrest that man. who Is' making that one horse draw a load heavy eqough for,' three. Rush in upon that scene whore boys ore torturing n oat or transfixing butterfly and grasshopper; No mora ,dUl Cbrls,t show Interest, In the botanhlcal Woffld,. when flo imld, 'Consider the lilies?' than He.showed sympathy for the ornithological #h.e> Ue said, "Behold the fowls of '.tho jlrt" and'the quadrupedal when He allowed.

Bo careful how you strike him across tho head, jarring tho brain. What you Bay to him will be centennial and millennial, and a hundred years and a thousand years will notdestroy tho echo and re-echo. Do not say, "It is only a child." RalhorBay, "it is only an immortal." It Is only a raastcrploco of Jehovah. It is only a being that shall outllvo sun nnd moon and Btnr, and ages quadril- lennlal. Qod has Infinite resources and Ho can give presents of great vahio, but whon Uo wents to glvo the richest possible gift to a household Ho looksnround all tho worlds and all tho universe nnd then gives a child. The greatest present that Ood ever garo our world lie gave abont l,b01 years ago, and lie gavo it on n Christmas night, nnl it was of such value that Heaven adjourned for a recess nnd enmo down and broko through tho clouds to look at it Yea, in all ages Ood has honored chlldhciod. Uo makes almost ovory picture a fail- nro unless there bo a child either playing on the floor or looking through the window, or saatcd on tho lap, gazing into tho face of the mother. It was a child in Nnnman's kltchon that told tho great Syrian warrior where he might go and gat cured of tho leprosy, whloh at his saventh plunge in tho Jordan, was left at tho bottom of the rlvor. It was to tho cradle of leaves, in which a child was lnii, rocked by the Nile, that Ood called tho attention of history. It was a sick child that evoked Christ's curatlvo sympathies. It via.% a child that Christ sot In tho midst of the squabbling dlsclplos, to teach tho lesson of humanity. Wo nre inforinod that wolf and loopard and Hon shall be yet so domesticated thnt a littlo child shall ioad tho in. A child dccldod Waterloo, showing the army of Blucher how they could tako a short cut through tho fields, whon, if tho old road had bcon followed, tho Russian general would havo como up too lata to save the deBtlnlosot Europe It was a child that decldod Gettysburg, ho having overheard two confoderata generals in conversation, in which they docldcd to ranreh for Gettysburg in- stoad of Hnrrisburg, and this reported to Gov. Cm-tin, tbo fodoral forcos started to meet their opponents nt Gettysburg. And to-day tho child Is to decide all tho great buttles, make all the laws, sett e all tho destinies nnd mhor in tho world's snlvntion or destruction. Mon, women, nations, all earth a'ld all hunvcq, bohold the child I Is thoro any velvet so soft as the child's check? Is there any sky so blue as a, child's eve? Is there any music so sweet, as a child's voice? Is thoro any plume so wavy ns a child's hair? Notlco also that In the Klblo night scene God lionoro I scloncc Who aro tho threo wise mon kneeling befo-o tho divine Infant? Not boors, not ignoramuses, but Caspar, Belthasar and Melehlor, mon who know all that, was to bo known. They woro tho Isaao Now tons and Herschels und Faradays of their time. Thoir aloharay was the forerunner of our sublime chemistry, their astrology tho mother of our magnificent astronomy, Thoy had studied stars, studied metaU, studied phyBiology, studied everything. And when I see these scientists bowing before the beautiful babe, I see tho prophecy of tho time when all tho telescopes and microscopes and a'l the Leydon jars and all the oloatrlo batteries, and, all the observatorlos, and all the universities shall bow to Jesus. It is muoh that way already. Where is the college that does not have morning prayers, thus bowing at the manger? Who havo beon tho gro;Uost physicians? Omitting the names of the living, lost wo should be invidious, have we not had among them Christian men like bur own Joseph O. Hutchinson and Rush nnd Valentine Mott and Aberoomble and Abernothy? Who havo been our groatost scinntlsts? Joseph Henry, who lived and died In the faith of tho gospels, and Agasslz, who, standing with his students among the hills, took off his hat and said: Young gentlemen, beforo wo study these rocks, lot us pray for wisdom to tho Ood who made the rooks." To-day the greatest doctors ot Brooklyn and Mew York and of this land and ot all lands revore tho Christian religion and aro not ashamed to say so before juries and legislatures and senates. ' All botany will yot worship tho Rose of Sharon,' All astronomy will yet recognize the Star of Bethlehem. Behold, also, in that first Christmas night that Qod honored the fields. Como in, shepherd boys, to Bethlehem and •ee the child. "No," they say, "we are not dressed good enough to como in." "Yes, you are; come in." Suro enough, tho storms'and the night dew and the brambles have made rough work with their apparel, but none have a better right to como In, They were tho first to hear the muslo of that Christmas night, Tho first announcement of a Saviour's birth was mads to thoso mon in the fields. There were wiseacres that night in Bethlehem and Jerusalem snoring, in deep sleep, and there were salaried officers of government, who, bearing of it afterward, may have thought that they ought to have had the first news of such. a great event, some * one' dismounting 1 from a swift csmeVatthelr door and knocking till,, at, soma sentinel's question, "Who : ^mei|,",i9o'^K;flie'.''graat'bnos of tdie palace might have been lold of tho colossal arrival. No; the shepherds heard tho first two bars of the .muslo, the first In the mujor key .'«bd the last in tbo subdued minor: "Glory to'Ood in tho .highest, and on earth peace, goodwill to men.'' 1 Ahi yes; the fields were honored.

To the fields) Ood honored them when lie woke up tho shephords by the midnight anthmn, nnd lie will, whllo tho world lasts, i- n" . IUO to honor the Holds. 1 Behold, also, that on that Christmas night Oncl honored motherhood. Two angels on their wlnijs might have brought an InfnntSnviour to Bethlehem without Mary's being thorc at all; when the villagers, on the morning of December 20, awoke, by divine arrangement, und in somo unexplained way the Child Jesus might have been found in somo comfortable cradle of tho village. But no, not Motherhood for all tlmo was to bo consecrated, and one of the tendcrest rclntlons was to be the maternal relation, and one of the sweetest words "mother." In all ages Ood hns honored good motherhood. John Wesley hnd a good mother; St Bernard had a good mother; Samuol Budgott a good mother; D id- drlgo a good mother; Wnlter Scott nj good mother; Benjamin West a good mother. In a groat audience, most of whom were Christians, IJ asked that all thoso who had been blessed of Christian mothers arise, and j almost tho ontlro assembly stood rp. I Don't you HCO how important it is that nil motherhood bo consecrated? Why j did Tilinn, thn llulinn uriis', when he j sketched the madonna, inuU-e it an Italian fnce? Whv did ltubons, tho German nrtist, in his mndnnmi. make It a' German fnce? Why did J si .ia Reynolds, tho English nrtist. In his madon­ na, make It an English facs? Why did ! Murillo, the Spanish artist, in his ma- i donna, make it a Spanish face? I never heard, but I think thoy took their own mothers as tho type of Mary, the mother of Christ. Whon you hear s>rao un'o, in sermon or oration, speak in tlio abstract of a good, faithful, honest mother, -your eyes fill up with tearj, while you soy to yourself, "that was my mother." Tho first word a child utters is apt to bo "mothor," and the old man, in his dying dream, calls: "Mother! mother!" It matters not whether she was brought up in tho surroundings of a city, and in affluent home, and was dressed appropriately, with reference to the demands of modern life, or whether she wore the old time cap and great round spectacles, and apron of her own make, and knit your socks with her own needles, seated by the broad fireplace with groat log- ablaze, on a winter night. It matters not how many wrinkles crossed and rouro*sed her face, or how much har shoulders stooped with tho burdons of a long life, If you painted a madonna, hers would be tho face. Whata gentlo handsho had when wo woro sick, and what, a voice to s-iotho pain, and was there any ono who could so fill up a room with poace and purity and light? And what a sud day that was whon we cams home and she could greet us not, for her Hps were forevorstlll.

They live in the true noutadic Wny in tents, woven by the women from sheep wool und camel hair, und dyed black in order to absorb more heat during the winter. This frail sneltor is sustained by three, four or livo poles, from 6 feet to 3 Teet high, disposed according to the length of thu tent. Thu interior is divided by two or three partitions. At night tho children and old WOIUJD sleep in one division, while tho chief cf the family with his wives sleep in the other. His gun und scimitar mo by bis side, ready for use against wild animals or thieves. Ho t-leeps little until morning, as he bus to wutch over bis cattle lying in tho open air around the tent, and is often attracted outside by the barking ot his dogs. No furniture of any kind is in use. Scarcely have they tbe most ordinary and indispensable kitjlien utensils. The water is kept in n gout skin, which is remarkably well adapted to that purpose, as its con tents are in perfect freshness. Thu sacks containing tbo provisions, barley, dutes, etc., nre uuined up around tlm poles supporting thu tent, in order to off i -r more resistance to thu force of the wind. The inmates sleep upon mats, braided by the wives, of ulfa (tough herb of Iho desert). The wealthier Nomad-i KOnorally buve, carpels in pluce of the nuts, or hprdud over them. It is contrary to their eu-itom for mcu, even friend", to enter the tent or house of an Arab, for be is extremely ji-alous of bis wives. An infringement of this rule would endunger tlio life of tho intruder When thoy wish to speak to ono another they cali from tho outside. Two persons only are legally entitled to enter, the kadi und tbo marabout. It sometimes occurs that tho master of the tent ur house calls his visitors within, but pievious to their entrance thn wives withdraw into tbo gyn- eciuni division of Ibe tent reserved especially for them and the ha.hind. The education of thu chi'drcii is nlmOit entirely neglected, and the scenes thoy have to witnoss in tho recesses if tin tent render thrm vicious at an early uge, tbe moro to us nothing is done to combat vice. Marriage is entend into at u vory early u»e. The tender familiarity that in our land brings tho paternal and filial hearts »o close to c.uh other is not observed there. Like their mothers, the children are often Ruvrtgely tyrannize! ovor by tbo father, whom th°y do not call papa, but sidi tlord). Tkough tho Arabian mothers displuy much more natural love for tOeir progeny than do their fathers, their leva is often mute; tho lavishing of careaies end affectionate words aro larcly observed. The strict respect of the whole lamilv towards the father is well shown at the modk Whon the wives have prepared tne food, they place the dish before tbe lord of tbe family, who, after pronouncing the "Ueesoi Allah"—in tho name of God- begins eatin« alone, while the buagry wives and children, standing a few steps by, look at him us bo plunges hia fingers into the dish. Neither spoons nor forks are in use there. Whon be is feu ted the wives bring him a drink. Tbe Koran prescribes that drink muy be taken but once while eating. At last he deigns to tell them to eat, and tho rest of tbe food is eaten by tbe whole family together. The women ure overburdened with spin- nimr. weaving, milking, making cheese, preparing fond, braiding cords with ulfii, even saddling the rueburi (dromedaries), betides all tho family work, The sons are tbe shepherds, while the cnief of the family carries tho grain, does the buying and selling at the markets, bunts, fights, steals, joins a maurading band, &o. Tbe means of the Nomads are derived solely from the breeding of cattle, of which they keep a large number; some families possets as many as 12,000 head. They are tbo traditional shepherds of tbe deiert, who draw from it the only important thing which it can afford, tbe immense herds of cattle which they raise tbero are during the winter, and with which they supply all the markets ot Morccca, Algcrix, Tuni*, and Tripoli, besides many of Europe. During the summer they find no means for subsistence in the arid plains of the desert, as Gourarn, Taftlals, and Insala, where tbe land is mcuntainous, out by ravines, or abounds in lakes filled the greater part of the your, But these regions were appropriated long ago by warlike tribes; so that all otheis are obliged to draw northward. However barren be tho deiert during the hottest BeiiBOn, Borioh is its soil that the day following a rainfall wild grass is observed growing in spots uncovered by suii 'l, but the grass tli"t springs up in the Kiinstiino of to day is scotched by tbe sun- thine tiemorrow. Except BO we tough species, all plants or grasses not having the shade of tbe palm tree and daily irrf gation cannot exist under tbat inexorable sun. But tbe arid palm, BO dry in summer, takes a now aspeot after the first auturunl :raiufa!l. Immense spaces— a'l parts, in fact whioli are uncovered by sand —grow greoo, thus affording food for tho innumerable cattle of the Nomads, This first rainfall is the signal f» I hem to leave the north and re-enter the Sab aru, their idead motherland, where no boundary restrains them, and where they move., about, three, four,. or five tiroes a week according to,.the rlebnessof the pasture tbeyflnd. Thus ihey travel all tbe wjnter until tbo midulu of Muy. when the sun, drying up tho food' for their cattle, driven them to the mountainous regions of of the north, wWq they sell part of thoir entile and find pasture tor the rest;' But were it not to "avoid famine, tbe north, with, its beautiful forests and meadows would have no attraction for tboui. As the lightbousft keeper, after passing years isolated in the midst of tbe seas, becomes averse to the world, finding cbftrm only ia tbe solitary abode uad harmony only in the murmur of ibe waves, so the Nomads of ths Sahara > feel au at traction for tbe frightful solitude, which appears so ugly to tne European traveller; they #m fornotbiog but the dead. eUepee. pltbftdewr ^wasts,, ,it<» . . • !• jThe Npmand $.kee-P : soysrst Mtnels for.

Sjine of them are also used for traniporting the children nnd tbe sick women. For this purpose a kind of covered litter, called palanquin, is turned sideways upon tbo camel, nnd I bus made to contain several persons. Thus organized and equipped, the Nomad family is always ready to move or flee with all its possessions, as its mules •ire always pr<partd to mount ana tignt for its security. I he Nomad tribe travels as a whole body. In tho spring, on the occasion of their annual journey to the north, they carry Irom Die oasis immense quantities of datta to sell in tho northern markets at three to four times the price at which they biugbt tl.em. or to exchange them for grain. Witb ibe proceeds of ibis venture and tbe price ibtitined from tbo sslo of their cotlle, wool, hennu, musk, aud various other articles manufactured by themselves during tho winter, each family buys enouifh grain for tbe wholo year. Wh-'n they re-enter tho solitudes of tho Sahara in autumn, this grain Is stored in silos that they rent in tbo oasis orksour(ibe ksour are fortified villages in the desert, whoiO inhabitants are the bonn-keepers or constituents of tbe Nomad*.) A great part of the re-victualling of tbe northern oasis is ubo due to the No niids, but their IrniRj i« limited to Central Sahara. Tbe caravans trading further beyond, as far as the Soudan, aro generally formed by the Mz ibits. The Nomads of the Sahara show plainly tbo wholesome tffectsof tbo open air when contrasted with their brethren who live in "gnurbi" (houses) almost closed to tbo air nnd light. It seems inconceivable that their poor food can produce in th-:m so much Birength and vigor, but we must boliovo that they are belter fed by tho pure uir than by their sciwt nourishment. They are tall, muscular, slender, and lithe; their simpln garments do not restrain thiir bodies from ftequiring round ness nnd perfect development. Nowhere could be seen more life und vigor than in the une ->ii :scious attitude i of the children nr young people, especially before thoir iiinrri ige. They are used to every inclemency of the weather; up to the agu of ten they aro a'lowcd to run balf-clad. Their skins being exposed to the air nil day, be. come uuusually thick, so that they tcurce- ly Itii-1 the changes ol temperature. Aside from tbe malady which sfllicU thuir eye«, and certain diseases of the Mood, tt.ey nro seldom ill. Among the women rare cases of er.ioniia, typhus and lever are only occasionally observed. Tho horrible custom of killing sickly childrou, which was so long practiced before and even alter Mahomet, has completely dis appeared; here, uifain, the huniunu feelings of the prophet took the upper hand and prohibited tho custom. The Nomad-i are in general very careless about thoir physical condition; lazy and uvariciou-i, ni< st. of them do nothing to ret-toie health until they suffer too much to (eel the danger of dee.th. However, cerliiin medical practitioners, called "tubib," spetlato vipoo tho ignorance nf the people.

In 712 thoy invaded southwestern ljurope, occupyiug"the conquered lerri'ory for almost eiu'ht centiiriei.

Many persons have noticed tho remarkable changes which olten occur in tbe life of ponds and streams In soma cases thote are readily explained by tbe influence of settlement, with its necessities and caprices, and their demands upon watercourses and reservoirs. Hut again there is an element of mystery about torno of the trtm-iforniatioits during n generation. As an illustration, we may refer to a recent cmven-a'ion with a correspondent, Mr. 8. F. LXn'on. Near this gentleman's home at Wellesley, MUSK., tbero is a small sink hole about 100 feet in diameter, knnwn as Schoolbouso pond. During Mr. D.'nton's boyhood this w„« full of catfi-ih or horn pouts and contained no other tUh. About eight or ten years ago a fishing party, on theirleturn fiom a trip, had a pail of bait minnowB lift over. One of them said t 'Hoys, it's too bad to throw tbesn minnows away; let's put them in Schoolhonso pond." Into the pond they went, and today tbo water is tilled with them; they can be caught in enormous numbers und ure just tbe sis? for bait; but not a single horn pout nor nay other fiih, except tbe minno v, is to be found tbere. Water plants are plentiful and frogs too, but the minnow fills tbo category of firhes snd supplies tbe neighborhood with bait. Those little fishes resemble tbe shad in shupo. Tho same fish abounds in Wapan lake, near Wellosley, and keeps the. ba<s ana pickerel so well supplied tbat it is difficult to catch them witb five minnows, . As an illustration of their abundance, Mr. Denton remarked that on one occasion, when he and hie friends had exhausted tbeir stipply of bait they took all the capturod fish lying in the bottom of the boat, turned them head downward, shook them and obtained minnows enough in this way to continue Billing half thj afternoon.
