It had every mark of a deliberation and of an energy which would make it fruitfui of other results similar to the one in question. Aboutthe date of this occurrence, we read, also, of a poor little child of only seven Years, who committesuaicide in another in salittaon of the same State, by cutting his thoat, in consequence of having been asub jected to the tottare of the 'shower-bath. stanceof theapplication of this tertuse to bantesin that Institution? Just before th ntd t"the papers told , a of a spalfi gil4bi bhedl to _ ai pcawhere in Englasd, while the woman hired totake charge of it- and some eight or nine other little Victims of'charity was absent from lier post. Was this p the fault of tih woman We are infemalthat ;the board of worthy citizensn cMiged with the control of the " charity," onbeing notified of this catastrophe, went i to consultation on the question as to whether they should employ a matron, or entrust the remaining children to a sober-and watchful cook. But, after all, it may be said these are simply. a few instances where public chari ties were not only unfaithfully conducted by officials, but also badly controlled by directors, andthey may not denote a gene ral condition.. Of course, it would be im possible for us, in these colmmns, to enter upon a detailed disaussion of non-Catholic public charities, so far as their worldkgs have come to light. If public repute, how ever, can be to any extent an indication, we must conclude that the most gigantic r scheme of national charity known in the world, the poor-house system of England, affords the most appalling arra/of injus f ties, oppression, misery, and suffering, that history has recorded. But a week or two since, we read of a woman who had been an' inmate of one of these dens, and who acta ally-perished of starvation, rather than return. It is said that the honest and sa ympathetic pen efotickens, by its scathing s exposure of these abuses, has wrought some - amelioration in this pandemonium of hor Srors, but the pictures which his genius has a created must bequeathe to-immortality an limperishable record of national philan thropy and godlesi charity. SIs it strange that public charities, under a non-Catholio control, should be failures? SNot at all. Far be it firom us to deny that 1 generosity and kindliness and active sym pathy exist naturally in the human heart, I and are found eminently developed, not I only among Protestants, but also among the Sheathen. 'rTliy constitute a philanthropy capable of great sacrifice, and worthy of high admiration. The prime defect of this I human charity, however, is its individual Scharacter. It doss not seek combination or Sassociation. It accomplishes its work in 'itself, and leaves no successor. Divine eharityon-the eontrary, being one in its I origin, is a unity in its manifestation among Smen. It naturally draws its poessesors to gether in one grand, harmonious combina .that see Uq laete' equqiresea I, p o fover Cth , eoundles of th e wotrk w Aerwi I f hbtly epirit t love aind . 1sdmnii lbenevolence plan tree, besi*9i fis r patio, which fo uri ader istietehfu st eia Y o d h isefo nh for the saiftamrnrse.

Not hirelings. No; the children are too help less, the authority too absoolte for any but a mother's patient and loving hand to wield it over them. And where are those mothers to be found t Where shall we meet that charity which is not measured by money at The religions orders of the Church have devoted themselves, body and soul, to the service of God, without fee and without price, and purely for the love of Him. They delight to And and serve him in the persons of the poor the sick, the orphaned, the un fortunate of all kiinds. Faith tells them that this sertricrequlres love as its princi pal element; hope offers them no reward not earned by love, and the grace of God given to sustain them in their holy vocation supplies them with that love. The other day we read of a dying babe left at the door of a religious house in Paris. A sister took it up and elkissed it fondly.
