from abodes of poverty, aud often vrorso than poverty, by being sur
rounded during the day with a Christian atmosphere of kindness and i
forbearance, and being taught th-^ common elementary branches 01 j
education, will be saved from great peril, and aomn of them, it is :
hoped, become v?-ry useful no n md a uucc.

the chances for Imfs-ohon .ice very much lessened; it w certain,
moreover, tliat nothing can ho wasted whkh gives to children the
power to read the BthLe and (hi constitution or feevU and warms
them, flvm though their piiretits ehnqld prove unworthy.
We .-ubmit the following *01 - ! -rati ris to the benevolent
^ That it is the duty of all good Christians ami all good citizens to
lake good earn.of the young, because nothing can bo more dangerous
In a republic, than the presence of lawless bands of youths;
That lucre is not suffidrut public school accommodation for the
poor children of Washington a fjet too notorious to need dtmionsira
tiou. And, if there were, still tho same necessity would exist for
winning those from duugcr w ho, from the poverty or neglect of their
P* routs, would uoiseek educational ud vantages;
That It is only by direct effort among the poor, by personal appeal
to them, und personal sacrifice for them that we can hope to clear our
Illy of violence aud rowdyism; and that a proper Christian zeal aud
courage can accomplish this groat purpose is fully ovidenced in tho
past aud present condition of ?? The Five Points'1 iu New York.
We have no hesitation, therefore, in asking pecuniary aid from ail
parsons disposed to help what seems to us to be ho good a mission
