TWENTY-THIRD READING LESSON. Ab-stain from that which is e-vil, for bad ways are cer-tain to drive you to de-spair. Do not dis-dain a man be-cause he is poor. A poor man may be good and wor-thy of ap-plause, al-though he may not ap-pear in fine at-tire. Good-ness will en-dear you to all a-round you. If you try to con-ceal a fault you aug-ment it; you make it worse, be-cause you add falsehood to wrong. Ex-plain your faults to those who can for-give them, and they will try to re-claim you from bad ways. Be ear-nest in your ef-forts to im-prove. Do not main-tain that you have done right, when you know that you have done wrong; but con-fess your fault, and be-seech the Lord to for-give you. Fear to dis-please him. This is the way to hea-ven.
And all we view has beauty too.

THE FAMILY FRIEND;
In Six Volumes, Elegantly bound, the Contents being carefully Classified and Indexed, including
TO MATTERS OF

found to supply the best modern
Opinion of the Press.
The following is a type of the opinion formed of the FAMILY FRIEND, and expressed by
upwards of THREE HUNDRED NEWSPAPERS: “There never was a book which more honestly earned its title, or more fully satisfied the expectations which that title would lead one to form of its character, than the Family Friend, the volumes of which, beautifully got out, are now before us. Those who have seen a copy of the work will bear us out in our statement, that a more useful and generally entertaining family library book has never been published. It contains a fund of information that it would be difficult to find elsewhere in the same compass. There are tales for the Children; cookery, and other household recipes for Mamma; chess problems for Papa; poetry and crochet for tbe young Ladies; enigmas, anagrams, and charades for the young Gentlemen to exercise their ingenuity on; and a large quantity of miscellaneous reading to suit all tastes."
The great success of THE FAMILY FRIEND during three years, and the constant desire of its Subscribers for a more frequent issue, have influenced the Proprietors to commence a NEW SERIES, to be ISSUED WEEKLY,
Commencing SATURDAY, the 3rd of JULY, 1852.
