TO THE EDITOR. Sib, —With a view of ameliorating the terrible sufferings of mothers placed in the unfortunate position of Miss Edwards, would it not be wise to establish these in our midst ? Some wealthy colonist should contribute, and thus hand his name to posterity. In Russia, we are told, they are in every city. In Moscow twenty-five infants is the average daily number of admissions, and no questions are asked beyond the name of the child, and whether the ceremony of baptism has been performed. Maternity or lying-in hospitals similarly abound. The Greek Church is very catholic to the unfortunate in these respects. Our laws punish tho unfortunate mother too much. —I am, etc.. FuBSDUKd.
