AMUSEMENTS.--THE HOLYDAYS, AND THE NEW YEAR.

Man requires AMUSEMENT as much as he requires food or breath ; because the former is as imperiously demanded by a primitive faculty and law of his being as the latter. Nor can any thing be made to contribute more to his intellectual and moral improvement, and especially to his social enjoyments, than such amusements as might be devised and executed. They could and should be made a most powerful instru. mentality for binding all the members of every community inseparably together, in bonds of the most friendly affinity ; and thus substitute the most cordial good feeling for those strifes and animosities which now mar and deprave all our communities. See how our thanksgivings bind together families and neighborhoods. Nor will any thing recruit the body and nerve the intellect for powerful exertions more effectually than the best forms of recreation can be made to do. Nor is any thing more promotive of all the vital functions-digestion, circulation, respiration, perspiration, muscular action, etc.--than the hearty laugh; and certainly nothing more effectually rouses all the dormant energies of our being. Nor do I believe any medicines could be employed which would as soon or as effectually make the patient forget his pains, or invigorate the system to expel maladies. And certainly nothing is more promotive of longevity. Nor are many things as injurious to health, talents, morals, or long life, as long-faced Stoicism, or melancholy sobriety. Let us, then, have amusements-purified, laughter-moving, inspiring, and instructive public AMUSEMENTS—and of course times and seasons set apart for this purpose.

Such seasons are furnished us in the "holydays," and alsɔ in our thanksgivings, independence, etc. They also become admirable chronometers, and measure.the lapse of time on a great scale. Yet such public days are by no means sufficiently frequent. We should, therefore, make the utmost of what we have, and of course render the “ holydays ” as merry and delightful as possible.
