Moral IIerihsm.—The Now York Impress relatcs a touching anecdote, and one well calculated to illustrate the moral heroism of liic poor. The editor says:—A day or two ago, a young female visited the Almshouftc for jtermissiou to transport a twin sister to the Lunatic Asylum. ()n inquiring into her condition, it was found that she was the only healthy member of a very poor and nfllicfcd family. Her father is in the Lunatic As} him, and in compliance with her prayer, her litllu sister was sent to the same desolate abode. Her mother, two little sisters and a little brother arc in frcblc henllh, and every morsel of food which they have eaten for months post, has Iwcn hardly earned by the daily labor of the little girl in question.11 "What a noble spirit of self-denial and self-sacrifice! How puch characters in the humble of life adorn and dignify human nature!
