the appointment of Lord Durham was

meeting of relatives, the interchange of social
ties, all tend to open the fountains of the heart,
to call into play its best feelings, to harmonize
the thoughts, and lead them to the contemplation
of that Power whose benignity has spread bles
sings around. If the view of a hanii, grateful,
and joyous people can give pleasure to Rim, who
is the source of that happiness and joy, the in
gense which rises from the household altar on a,
thanksgiving day, must be more acceptable than
the gorgeous pomp of the Temple, or the more
worldly offerings of a public . service. Why then
cannot our state adopt this most felicitous prac

sect, than whom none-are more constant in relig

it. Let us then hope that ouroEzeentive may
