BERRIED HOLLY FOR THE BIRDS.
[TO THE EDITOR OF THE " SPECTATOR."] SIB,,—May I remind your readers that holly-berries are the natural food of various wild birds ? To deprive them of sustenance, at a time too when their supplies often run short, for the sake of decorations which please. our eyes is conduct little in accordance with the spirit of Christianity. The manufacture of artificial berries would give work to the workless. The use of natural berries robs the hungry birds. —I am, Sir, &c.,
