HINTS AND COMMENTS. j A very painful case was before the Wrexham magistrates on Monday last. It was one of a series of those which Christian society in Wrexham should deal with. A young woman, about the age of 19, was charged with immoral conduct. The charge was substantiated, and then, whilst the poor girl buried her face from a genuine feeling of shame, proof of a will to reform and wept tears of sorrow and penitence, the first step to reformation, the black and cursed list of past convictionsâof sins committed and suffered for, and which should be for- goUen-were cried aloud deliberately and firmly in thj ears of all. And after this death-knell to hope and every aspiration, this funereal pall, which stiflas and buries repentance and rouses stub- borness and defiance in every criminal heart, had thrown its horrible shadow over the poor girl, she received the "Christian and just" sen- tence of three months' imprisonment! But aprt from this, it was elicited that the girl had no employment, and no means of subsistence beyond casual occupation. When this fails, what choice has the girl but to relapse into vice, or go to the Workhouse ? None whatever, and the trial and tempt a ion which awaits her after her three mODt:" incarceration is what would overcome those perLa.f i of stronger virtue. Instead of society frowniuj on such unfortunates can they not form a local institution through which they might pass back idO society? Whilst such an institution is being formed might not a few well-disposed persors perform its work by private organization? If a situation were open to those young women, and their mistress was one who would sympathise and encourage, and not despise them, many in Wrexham might be saved from a continuation in the most degrading and most miserable of lives. Such work as this is right and proper for Christian Churches, Will none of the many in Wrexham undertake it ?
