Whence arises the misery of this present world? It is not owing to our cloudy atmosphere, our changing sea. sons, and inclement skies. It is not owing to the debility of our bodies, or to the unequal distribution of the goods of fortune. Amidst all disadvantages of this kind, a pure, a steadfast, and enlightened mind, possessed of strong virtue, could enjoy itself in peace, and smile at the impotenta assaults of fortune and the elements. It is within ourselves that misery has fixed its seat. Our disordered hearts, our guilty passions, our violent prejudices, and misplaced desires, are the instruments of the trouble which we endure. These sharpen the darts which adversitye would otherwise point in vain against us.

While the vain and the licentious are revellings in the midst of extravagance and riot, how little do they think of those scenes of sore distress which' are passing at that moment throughout the world; multitudes, struggling fos a
