    THE good old Christmas practice of "carol singing" was engaged in by the Moontanians, old and young, on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday evenings, some of the enthusiastic songsters not reaching their homes till break of day. In honor, also, of the festive occasion, Christmas cake abounded while " swankey" flowed freely. On Christmas Day, services were held at the various Churches in the town and surrounding mining villages.

    Wallaroo Mines Jottings- " BY LUCRETIUS " The old year 1876, has recently passed away ; but bringing at its heels the New Year 1877 with all its attendant festivities, amusements, and games of youthful pleasure. On Sunday last. New Year's eve the customary watchnight services were kept up in the various Churches on the Wallaroo Mines. These services seem to be losing the popularity, usually attached to them of yore, with the exception of the youthful portion of the community who made the night vocal with their singing, much to the chagrin of the elder portion of the district. During Christmas and the New Year, there was a very large amount of singing. Every person seemed to be affected with the same spirit ; all the choirs of the Mines churches rendered their assistance in carrying out the ancient custom of carol singing. And besides the choir there were (as usual) other parties, singing, in, I had almost said opposition to the trained choirs. and one of those parties came more particularly under my notice (to whom credit must be given for making very good music ) who while singing at one particular place, when asked if they had practised together for the occasion, one of the party replied in broad cornish. "Noa ; we are only a scraap-up party." And, considering they were such ; their achievements were not so bad.

    CHRISTMAS CAROLS have been the " ruling passion" of this district for the last few days, and some very excellent singing has been volunteered by itinerant carol singers. We believe there are few places which can boast of the so strict observance of this form of celebrating Christmas-tide as the mining townships of the Peninsula; and we may Fix this textadd, of so many good singers to sing them.

    Kadina Jottings. King Christmas has visited us once more, merry, genial, old Christmas with its festivi- ties, and interchange of joyous social greet- ings, and round of merry making. The time honored fashion of carol-singing was not dis- carded in our midst, our Cornish friends cling to the good old custom with tenacity. I presume it wakens us when memories of happy, meetings and joyous seasons at home. From Christmas eve till the succeeding morn the air resounded with sweet songs in memory of ''The happy night That to the cottage and the crown Fix this textBrought tidings of salvation down,'

    Christmas has been celebrated with the usual festivities and interchange of social kindnesses. The good old fashion of carol-singing is maintained by our Cornish friends with all the fondness and fervour appertaining to it in the old country, and from Christmas eve till the following morning the air was vocal with joyous carols in commemoration of "The happy night, That to the cottage, as the crown, Fix this textBrought tidings of salvation down."

    THE WALLAROO INSTITUTE CONCERT.—Excepting in the matter of attendance, we cannot honestly say that the musical entertainment by the Welsh Choir of Wallaroo at the Institute on Thursday evening last could compare favorably with the opening concert, which was given a short time ago. But then it must be remembered that that was of an Fix this textexceptionally high character, and was arranged under a musical taste ranking second to none in the district. Yet on this occasion the elfort was so manifestly dictated by kindly d»sire to assist in a matter worthy of help, and the assistance was renderedHO modestly and unostentatiously, there could be only one verdict, and that of praise. The selections contained in the programme comprised five glees, a Welsh carol, and comic trio, songs, overtures for the pianoforte ( at which Miss Heath presided ), two readings and the like number of recitations—the readings respectively. by the Revds. Messrs.

    CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS.— On Wednesday, in accordance with the practice which has prevailed at the Moonta and other mines in this locality for years past, the workmen, both underground and at the surface, ceased work at noon. At the Moonta Mines, and we believe at some others, the employes are presented with the half holiday, or in other words, their wages run on as though they had been at work during the afternoon. The various flagstaffs at the engine-houses and shafts had their gay garniture hoisted, which fluttered in the breeze and imparted an aspect of gaiety to the whole neighborhood. To say that the miners' cottages were profusely decked with evergreens would be almost superfluous, for it is well known that Cornishmen, wherever they maybe, delight in keeping up the good old custom of decorating their habitations at this season of the year with "Christmas," which is a general term with them for any description of evergreen foliage used for embellishment at Christmas-tide. The festival was celebrated in the township with great rejoicing. Several of the shops were adorned with pine branches, and many of the windows were filled with an attractive display of seasonable wares. The streets were thronged, and the performances of Mr. Bargwanna's band were listened to with pleasure. During the night the joyous music of the carol singers and waits resounded throughout the district. Delightful weather prevailed on Christmas Day, and in the afternoon the beach was visited by crowds of people.

    Last evening we were reminded of the approaching season. Some very beautiful carols were sung by a few vocalists who are preparing for the old established rule of ushering in the morning of Christ's nativity with sweet song.

    "CHRISTMAS ! merry, gladsome, genial old Christmas, with its attendant festivities, its joyous greetings, its social gatherings, and its round of merrymaking, has visited us once more: and in our locality at least we have not failed to recognise the festive season. On Christmas eve the Kadina brass band paraded the streets discoursing sweet music; later still parties of vocalists favored our townspeople with some very beautiful carols. Christmas morn broke bright and beautiful; and although we were occasionally favored with a trifling fall of "Australian snow " yet it was a very enjoyable day."

    After the business places were closed the town was almost overrun with carol singers good, bad, and indifferent (the former being very much in the minority) who made it almost impossible for any but deaf, people to obtain sleep. Carol singing may be all very well once in a while, if well-done, but when a number of boys in lots of about half a dozen at a time, keep coming to one's door, all the night through, chanting ill rhymed ditties in discordant voices that mercilessly murder time, tune and melody, it becomes somewhat monotonous, and does not help one to think about the angels singing 'good will and peace towards men." but rather makes him wish that he had a 'healthy tiger" on his premises to let loose, that he might select a Christmas dinner most suited to a tiger's palate from among those disturbers of the peace.

    Mallala. 1 January 10. The Christmas holidays passed off very quietly here as most persons went away to spend the few spare days at Christmas tide. The idea of carol singing is almost unknown in the dis- trict, there being only here and there one who has been brodght to it, thus one coming from the higher end of Yorke's Peninsula feels a longing to be at home once again, for the purpose of joining in the song of gratitude.

    The inhabitants of Moonta Mines, Cross Roads, Yelta and Hamley crowded into the township in great numbers on Saturday evening, and the streets were thronged from six to eleven o'clock. Business people appeared to be driving a lively trade, and all the fancy goods and " sweets shops" received a liberal amount of patronage. Among the chief attractions was Mr. Guest's " Carnival" which was largely attended on both Christmas Eve and Boxing-night. Numer- ous bands of carol singers also contributed to the liveliness of the scene, some singing the old Christmas songs with good taste, and others making night hideous by their discordant howling.

    On Sunday evening shortly after service was over in the various churches, bands of carol singers paraded the streets of the mine and town, affording pleasure to some and annoyance to others. Some of the bands of singers rendered the carols very sweetly, but others howled the whole night long in anything but a musical fashion. This kind of thing was kept up, more or less, during the whole of Christmas day, until peaceable folks wearied of it, and of the constantly recurring question "Have a Krismus Kurl."
