To this Editor. Sir, —Thinking, as I finished reading the cri'ique on “ Pastor Chiniquy’s conversion ” in this morning’s “ Mail,” that I scarcely understood the writer’s aim, I read it a second time ; and as I put down the paper after my task was over, it occurred to my mind that I once met with a story of this kind ;—As an out door preacher was on one occasion giving a gospel address, an iconoclast disturbed the audience by saying—“ He tells lies ” —“He is be-fooling you”—“He don’t know what he talks about ” —&c. At length the preacher turned to hinT%Tid said—“ Now let the folks alone and attend to me. Suppose I had a pot of honey into which I put my finger, and having tasted the honey I said ‘ It’s very sweet!’ Then I handed it round to the congregation for them to taste, and they all said— ‘ Yes it’s very sweet!’—But you came up and said— ‘ No, it's not sweet—he’s just deceiving you, ‘He knows it’s not sweet.” ‘Now what would that prove V Why it would prove you had not had your finger in the pot. ” —Yours, &0., Reader. Ashburton, 17th Fob., 1880.
