ON CHARITY. It is proper that alms should come out of a little purse as well as out of a great sack ; but surely where there is plenty charity is a real duty. It is a tribute imposed by heaven upon us, and he is not a good subject who refuseth to pay it. -- Feltham.

True charity, a plant divinely nursed,
Fed by the love from which it rose at first,
Thrives against hope, and, in the rudest scene,
Storms but enliven its unfading green ;
Exub'rant is the shadow it supplies,

Its fruit on earth, its growth above the skies.—Cowper. OR ELSE LEARN St. John XVI., verses 11-17.

FORTY-EIGHTH WEEK. Lesson 236.-Learn for Monday Morning.

TIME. Time speeds away-away-away ;
