It is but naiural tllat the enthusiasts for WOlilali. sufth:age should have risenagainst Miss Bock,and bran4ed her statement a the out- c()nie (if personal spite and mortified pride.

A boy, for instmice, who has run away from a schoq 'i, not a trustworthy intb]miant against the in- Rution he has h+ft; a deserter from a political t)arty is scareely ever a fair witness cmlcerning the nierits of.that party; an apostate from the Church, as we know (oo well from.sad experi- ences, is not reliable in his declanmtions against the Church..
