The New Pilot .Boat.
In making our enquiries a day or two
since regarding the pilot boat now in
course of construction at the dry dock,
we tailed, in the short space of time at
our command, to obtain some impor
tant particulars regarding the pretty
little craft. She is being constructed
for Mr. Thomas Evans, ot this city,
and when completed will be a credit to
his enterprise as well as to the work
manship of those who have the care ot
her construction. She will probably
be launched in the early part of Janu
ary, although she will not be fully pre
pared tor service for a week or two
after that time. Her name, of course,
will not bo announced until the launch
ing but there is already much specula
tion at the subject.
The Festival To-Nlsrht.
We again call the attention of our
readers to the above entertainment to
be given by tho ladies ths. evening at
the "Holmes" house, coruer of Third
and Chestnut streets. The delicacies
of the season will bo prepared in such
a manner as to tempt the palate ot the
most abstemious, and bright eyes and
graceful forms will give an additional
charm to the festive gathering. It is
not, however, for the simple gratifica
tion of the appetitejhat we call the at
tention of our people to this festival
but for the higher reason that it is given
for the benefit of St James' Home, one
of the noblest charities in our State,
and one that is doing a work of incal
culable good in our city.
The Scriptures say, "to do good and
distribute forget not," and we hope to
see the injunction carried out most
fully this evening. It could not be done
in a better cause.
We have been told repeatedly during
thejday, and especially in the morning
hours, that it was a cold day. In fact,
it was said to us so frequently that it
became monotonous, only varied by
the difference in the descriptive adjec
tives which accompanied the declara
tion. We knew that it was cold
weather all the time, without being
told of it. Wo found out by actual ex
perience that it was growing rapidly
colder in the early hours of last night,
and, bad thero " been any daubt, the
rain, which froze as fast as it fell,
would have dispelled the illusion. , It
grew colder all night and this morning
was the coldeet by far we have had this
year. It ii doubtful If we have any
colder weather during the remainder
of the season, and we would be entire"
ly satisfied with a more genial atmos
phere from now until the daisies begin
to bloom again.
LippincoWs forj January opens with
the first instalment of a serial
entirely different in character from the
ordinary novel, and mudh better suited
to publication in this form. It is
entitled On this Side," and will depict
the experiences and impressions of a
party of English people, a baronet and
his friends, during a tour in the United
States. They have not yet made their
appearance on the scene, bat Mr- Job
Ketchum, an eccentric but thoroughly
generous and hospitable Westerner,
with a pretty and gentle English wifet
has been notified of their coming and is
making preparations to receive them
There is a rich vein ol humor in the
dialogues and descriptions, and what
especially challenges attention is the
thorough knowledge, of the peculiar
habits and characteristics , of typical
Americans and English shown by the
writer, and the fine touches by which
their contrasts are brought out in con
versation and action, with plenty of
playful satire bnt with a total , freedom
from caricature. The author is Jr.: U.
Baylor, whose former serial, ; "The
Perfect Treasure,' proved Terj. attrac-
tive to readers of the Magazine.' There
are of coarse many othgr fine articles and
attractive papers ia this issae. Lippin
colTs opens the New Year handsomely
with this issue.
