LoNDox.-The metropolis of England is the centre of wisdom and piety, to which the best and wisest men of every land are continually resorting.' Many are brought here by the desire of living after their own manner without observation, and of lying hid in the obscurity of multitudes. All that is good and noble, generous and humane is to be found in London; yet it is the "needy villian's home," the receptacle of the vicious and depraved of all parts of the world. But, as a glorious set-off to its annual me lancholy catalogue of crime, let us reflect or its numerous god-like charities..with which it abounds, and which stud its imme diate vicinity like sparkling diamonds. It is a happy. reflectic- that there is not a calamity'which "flosh is heir to," but what will here find an asylum to asuage its anguish.
