■Many -cars ao,;raccn8, in Souih America sulfered greatly from an earthquake. The Congrëss of the United States sent the sufferera a ship load of provisione, cl cetera, forjtbeir relief. TJiis was well done. The city of Hamburg, one of the richest in Europa lately expericneed a most destructive visitation by fire. Millions vvere ■poured int o her for the relief of the unfortuPate inhabitants. Far a-.vny from her as we tfe, sevwhl thousand dollars were contributed,and fonvarded from New York. This too was well dono. Lo&t spring - in filay we think - Cape Ilaiticn, uod other places m the island of Haití vvere almost totaily destroyed ly an earthquake. The few inhabüants who cscaped with their üves, lost every tU'mg else. We have rarely seen more appalling accounts óf distress and dcstitution Ihan carne to us from thatisJand. Many months have pass'ed away, and no movement has been made for their relief, nor is it at all probable Iherc will bc. This is not well done. "Inasmnch as ye did it not unto the least of these, ye did it not unto rae.''
