Joaes. in responding, said that a parson was sometimes in difficulties be C9.U39 he had no text. At other times, he was in difficulties because he had no sermon. On this occasion, he had both a very good text and a sermon, bat unfortunately, he had no time to deliver it. He had the best possible text viz the Church, the Bishop, Clergymen, and Minis- ters of all denominations. Trie virtues of these people were so numerous that he could nob possibly have time to allude to them. Their faults were fesv.Jand therefore, ha thought that he could do more justice, la the time at his dis- posal to their faults than to their virtues. Mr. Jones then went on to relate several humorous anecdotes connected with the clergy, which were much appreciated by his audience.
