"AND HE SAID UNTO M1E: MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR THEE, FOR 1MY * STRENGTH IS MADE PERFECT IN WEAK NESS."-I L Cor. xii., 9. (Concluded). (A portion of this appeared in last issue) Paul would have been a poorer man without that thorn. Aye, and the church of Christ of his lay; would have lost much of gre.test value to it, had Paul been minus that thorn. He thought for a time that the cause ,t tihe gospel would have been better served, had he been relieved from his infinnity, and gone forth to teach and preach with unbroken vigour of body and mind ; his bodily pleasure strong, his speech muighty and powerful, instead of people saying about him: "'his bodily presence is weak and his speech of no ac count." But Paul lived long enough to ratify the Divine verdict that judged other wise. We thus find him sayiug : "most gladly, therefore, will I rather glory in myi infirmities th...

"Mine host," in looking over. the register, discovered the name, "Henry Clay." There was but one" Clay." Could it be possible that he had this distin guished man under his roof? He was astonished, delighted. Next. morning, as soon as the great man appeared, the ad miring Boniface bustled forward, and making his rude bow, said, "Mr. Clay, I believe, sir 1" "That is my name," said the gentle man, in his affable tone. "Mr. Clay, the Congressman ?". "Yes, sir." " Well, sir I've heard of you, and I thought I'd just ask if you wouldn't give me and my old woman a speech before you go." Hair may be plaited and yet be golden. Man proposes; but the girl disposes. Every man has his price; but he doesn't always get it. Tne reason why the laws are so expensive, Cedric, is because they are made -mostly by lawyers. Mamma: " ...
