The Spanish writer, Balmes, in his work entitled 鈥淧rotestantism compared with Catholicity,鈥?has one chapter devoted to the anti-slavery course of the church, in which he sets forth the whole system of measures which the church pursued in reference to this subject, and quotes, in their order, all the decrees of councils. The decrees themselves are given in an appendix at length, in the original Latin.

She is one of a million. I never met with any woman in my life so like an angel without wings. Tall, fair, elegant, graceful, with a face that Ary Scheffer might have chosen to paint for a seraph,鈥攈er soul seems to correspond to her external appearance. Saintly as she is, she is not in the least gloomy; she tries to make all happy, and is business-like and practical. Fitted to grace a drawing-room, she throws her heart into school-work, and seems to manage the house beautifully. It will give you an idea how winning she is, when I tell you that Miss Wauton and Miss Hasell call Mrs. Elmslie 鈥淢other,鈥?鈥淢other dear,鈥?though the name seems strange from one who looks quite as old as herself.

I will come again to-morrow, or sooner, unattended. H鈥攕h, for heaven鈥檚 sake, h鈥攕h,鈥?and she hurriedly left the room. Chorus鈥?
