It is particularly scarce now, in consequence of the disturbed of the Chinese Empire. Though the imports of Tea into this country still cos large, the quality of the supply is very common, and the Tea itself is more gener damaged than has ever yet been known.

There is no doubt, however, that there is plenty of Good Tea in this country, and owness of price. much to be regretted that lowness of price has forced into consumption a lot of stuff

'It is of greatest concernment in the Church and Commonwealth to have a vigilant eye how books demean themselves 'as well as men, and thereafter to confine, imprison, and do sharpest justice on them as malefactors; for books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them to be as active as that soul was whose progeny they are.' - Milton.
