The lady replied "No." She took her to another closet, and repeated her question, "Pray, Ma'am, do you see any thing?" The reply again was "No." She took her to a third closet, and once more repeated her question, "Pray, Ma'am, do you see any thing?" the lady replying, with a look of surprise bordering on displeasure, “No.” “Then, Madam,” said poor Mary, "you see all I have in the world.

NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS.
IT is not yet determined whether this work shall be continued another year. The present publishers decline carrying it on, because of the irregularity and delinquency of many of the subscribers in making remittances of dues ;-and one, at least, of the present editors will, with this Number, cease to act in that capacity; though, if the work is continued, he will not withhold contributions of aid in another way. Other arrangements must therefore be made: either another publisher must be obtained, who will carry on the work at his own expense-he looking for remuneration from the proceeds of subscriptions-or the present publishers will continue, provided the risk is with the editors.-If no other number of the Evangelical Guardian and Review appear, the subscribers will ascribe its discontinuance to the impracticability of making satisfactory arrangements on these points.
