THE nXanunmthshire yierfm. XKWI'OitT, SATURDAY. JAN. 1, 1859. IF Christmas greetings be time-honoured, and find their passport to the full and satisfied heart, felicitations on the opening of the New Year cannot be coldly turned from; for although the past may have been saddened with sorrow and disappointment* the brightness of the fu- ture may promise to atone for its darkness and dreariness, and enable the once bruised bat after buoyant man to say— Mi od^efais, mi orchfygais.(I suffered, I conquered.) ]Vlay those, then, whose fortunes were clouded in the year that has past, find them more glo- rious, more resplendent in their hue, in the year just opening upon us, and may they at its cloe 0 have reason to bend the knee in gratitude to tut GIVER oF ALL GOOD for scattering plenty oev a smiling land, and enabling all— "To read a nation's history in a nation's eyes." A Happy New Year to all, then, is MERLIN s sincere and honest wish in this its opening number for 1859. Happy, not only in the character of their outward circumstances, as we have said before, for that would avail but little without a religious life to subordinate the pros- perity of this world to the requirements of another, but happy within as well as without— happy in thoughts, affections, and desires, and in that mental life which, whether it burn with the fine frenzy of genius, or glow in the less ar- dent forms of thought, still refines and purifies, and prepares a local habitation in the heart for feelings which are too often stigmatised as airy nothings." Indeed, the conventional good wishes of such a period have so frequently a low material meaning and limitation, that it is not 0
