Report of the Ma-i'igors of tho Y/oahirgten
Ci-y Protest xnt Asylum for th9 Orphan and
Destitute Children.
Again we come. Another year has
rolled its rapid round. Scarce can we
realize it. Like a dream when one
awaketh; so silently, and so harmoni
ously as the wheels of time move on.
From the glorious orb cf day to the
twinkling little star that tills its place
in the firmament?from the proud mon
arch on his throne to the helpless little
orphan children, sheltered from the
storm?all, all, have a j art in the one
glorious whole.
The spring, with its freshness and
l>eauty, strcwd our pathway with llowcrs:
the summer rewardeth the husbandman
with an abundant harvest; while the
ripening fruits of autumn tilled ?' our
basket and our store," and now the cold
blasts of winter arc again upon us. How
many millions and millions of the human
race; how many in our own midst, have
slept their last flecp, since with urgent
appeal we told our story of the wants
and sorrows ol the poor, the destitute,
the orphan child! We have been spared,
for what? For new duties, new respon
sibilities, as long as penury and want
stand shivering at our door; as long as
there is a houseless, homeless, orphan
child, bereft of natural guardians to ask
our pity or to seek a shelter. We have
a work to do?a work full of interest,
foil cf responsibility. Each little one
has a sotd that will outlast " the wreck
of matter and tire crush of worlds."
Thirty-four of our number arc under the
age of six years: childhood lisping its
first prayer, its first hymn, its first verse
of sacred writ.
We commenced the year with a debt
of one thousand dollars. The public press
told our story ; the ministers of the sanc
tuary entreated for relief; some, we arc
thankful to say, generously responded to
our call, but how very lew: and how I
many cf our follow citizens have had
" their baskets and their stores tilled ;"
and with this their accountability as
stewards increased. The}' 1 ave forgot
ten the command " Peal thy bread to the
hungry and satisfy the alHicted soul."
Their mansions arc the abode of every j
luxury; day after day passes, tlieir table
grcans with all that can tempt the appe
tite. The shades of evening gather round
brilliant lights, a cheerful tireside. Thvir
happy homes and little ones know not a
wish ungratifled; all are there. Can it
be amid so many blessings that they for
get the " Giver in the gift;" or with the j
thoughtless Queen of other days inquire
why don't the poor have plenty of bread j
and cheese ? while not a mite, or a very
small one, by them is bestowed to keep
those poor from starving. Could you
have seen, as we can tell you, within the
past year, the wretched mother falling
dead, while in the very act of asking for
a crust, and her child of four years old,
brought to our asylum, sheltered from '
the blast, aud provided with the neces
ries of life? could you know and hear
of the sorrow that we hear, it would 1
surely melt a heart of adamant.
Wealth, what a blessing to the man ,
who scatters with liberal hand: wlio dries
the burning tear from soirows cheek;
who lights up, or enables others to light
up, by bis munificent gifts, the extin
guished hope in the dying mother's breast,
that tender guardians wdl watch over
her orphan child when she is gone. Tell
us, is there one drop in what the world
liug calls the cup of pleasure, compara
ble to such a reflection.
The question is now before the public,
is the Washington City Protestant Or
phan Asylum to bo sustained; or, arc
these children, taken from the abode of
misery, and trained for usefulness, to be
scattered abroad for what destiny we <
know not; do we plead in vain; and we
had almost said, has compassion closed
her eyes, shut her ears, and clenched her
hands against our little ones. Had we
no higher motive to plead than economy,
we Itave it from an authentic source, tlrnt I
the expense incurred by the public in the
prosecution and punishment of persons I
charged with crimes throughout this
Union?but emphatically of this District,
for each and eTery year, would of itself
1 create a fund, the interest of which,
would provide for the support and educa
tion of every orphan ehi!d.
Is there not in argument sufficient in
that statement to arouse the public mind
i to action? Are there not those .vnnng u1
; who will assist in paying the debt of l?52?
Will you not visit tli-j Institution and
judge for yourselves; see the children
during the hoars of school; see them
while gathering arouivl their humble
board with frugal fare, while health i>it*
smiling on every brow, and contentment
in every face ? We think it would warm
the father's heart, and moisten the moth
er's eye; they would then realize that
there was a reality in the necessity which
we find it so difficult to impress upon tl*
) public by any endeavors we can make.
! The strictest economy is used, SI 25
t cents for meats of any kind, and about 75
\ cents for vegetables, is the usual amount
i expended on each market day. Some
times we have donations of vegetables.
The house has never been kept in better
order; much praise is due our present
matron for good cider aud neatness, and
her watchful and tender care of the child
ren. Wc have also a competent teacher.
J who, wc believe, faithfully performs her
. duties.
During the past year the orphans have
{been unusually blessed with health; not
one of our number is missing from the ac
customed scat, except those who have
been taken from the asylum, or placed in
proper situations for them. While they
. have been spired, the shafts of the de
stroyer have fallen around us?one vacant
seat is found in our Board of Managers.
Mrs. Blagden, who has been associated
with us for several years, and warmly in
' terertcd in the orphan cause, was sud
denly removed. \\ ilh her afllictcd family
wc deeply sympathize. We trust and be
lieve her end was " pcate."
The Rev. l>r. lAurie, who for years has
been a warm and zealous friend of this
t institution, has been taken from us as a
i44 shock of cora fully ripe." On this our
anniversary his venerable form is missing:
one of the few who was always found to
join, counsel, and enter us in our work of
charity. 4* Pcacc to h;s ashes."
Mrs. Ilodge was nominated, and by a
unanimous vote elected Manager in the
vacancy made by Mrs. Blagden's death.
We have fifty-seven children?thirty
1 four girls and twenty-three bovs. Witl in
the year seven children have been taken
! from the asylum, by permission of tlie
managers, and twelve received.

To all we return our warmest thanks.
- and trust the opening year will find them
again disposed to plead our cause.
Our thanks are due to the proprietors
of the Paooraina of the Bible, for invi
tations for the children to see it ; also to
attend an exhibition of the Mammoth
Cave of Kentucky; also by invitation,
visited the Panorama of the Holy Land.
To our President of the Board of Trus
tees, W. W. Corcoran, Esq., who has fur
nished the asylum with four large ward
robes, besides a donation of one hundred
dollars, for general expenses, twen'y-tive
dollars, for additional salary to our ma
: tron, and the sum of one hundred and
eight dollars, to supply the orphan girls
i with a comfortable dress, and each boy
with a warm suit of clothes for the
winter?also, stove for the school room,
we return our sincere acknowledgments.
The reflections of a man, for such acts
of kindness to the poor and needy, will
be as a downy pillow to his head, when
the bubble of" Fame which encircles the
warrior and the politician, shall dissolve
itself to air.
