The following commnnication is j ceived by tbe Argus froru the couuty j house: On the 25th, a pleasant interchange of nsef'nl presents betweeu ruatron and inmates oconrred at the couuty house, foJlowed by a dinner, consisting of j chiokea frioasee, vegetables, oabbage salad, cuoumber piokles, bot bisonit, tea and coflee, grape pie, fried cakes and frosted cup cakes, all of which was most heartily eujoyed by the large family, as well as yonr norrespoudeut who was invited to partake. But the day of days to bé remembered, was ou Friclay, the 27th, wfaen the ladjes of Sc. Andrew's church trimrned au evergreen tree with Cbristoas gifts. The tree was first partly covered with (cottou), snow, aud strings of popcorn twined gracefnlty about amoug tbe dark green i branches, where tiuy caudles, like fire flies, ülurainated the pretty preseuts. were handkerchiefs vrhito and handkerohiefs bright to suit the tasfes of all, aprons for the wumen, besides ribbons , jewelry aud couibs. . Bas of caudy and presenta were distributed to each oue aud al) seeinod to enjoy tbemselves. Doors were tlirown opou iv.ti we were permitted to go whorever our fancy lead us. We noticed au iniproveineut in the various wards in tl e way of wUite spreads, for every béd, which gave the rooms a light, cheerful look. I learped tliat sïs of the old ladies had passed away siuoe oir last meeting, aud sevoral of the older meu. At present the house does uot seem ro be overorowded, probably owing to the mild weather of lare, and although tbe lat year has been a trying oue on farmers, mechanics, and merchants, we were glad to see ior ourselves that the county poor are oomfortable in their warm home, where extremo cleanliness prevails from garrt to cellar.
