The Members of the Society must have shared with the Directors in their 
anxioiis and painful solicitude in reference to the state of the Qovemment in 
Ibdagascar, and more particularly as to the truth or otb^rwise of the reports 
that KAT>AifA II. was still alive. To these reports we referred in our last 
number, but the intelligence received from the Rev. William Ellis, on 
which they were founded, reached no later than September 19th, and arrived 
in this country on the 5 th of November, By the last mail, which reached 
England on the 7th uli, no intelligence was received; but in the " Mauritius 
Commercial Gazette,'' which that mail conveyed, and which contained intelli- 
gence from Madagascar to the end of October, there was not the slightest 
reference even to the rumour of the King's being alive— on the contrary, the 
latest information from the capital would all lead to the conclusion that such 
a report was entirely disbelieved. 

By the South African mail, however, which arrived on the 23rd ult., 
ve received letters from the Rev. "William Thompson, of Cape Town, 
dated November 20th, in which he states that Mr. Cameeon, who arrived at 
AjfTAJfA^ffABivo on the 6th of September, had addressed letters to his friends 
in the colony, in wliich he affirms that the report that the king was living 
I was entirely unfounded. The following article to that effect we copy from 
\ the " South African Advertiser and Mail," of the 19th November : — 

" Mr. James Cameron, sen., who recently left Cape Town for Madagascar, 
writes to his friends of his safe arrival at the capital, Antananarivo, early in 
September. He speaks with much pleasure and satisfaction of the highly 
favourable reception given to him both by the government and the people; 

I and describes the intelligence and consistency of the native Christiaiis as 
deserving of very high praise. He states that the story of the King being still 
alive proves to be altogether false. The persons sent to put him to death 
foond the King and Queen together early in the morning. They first of all

removed the Queen to another room, and kept her there, while they despatched 
the King. She was then proclaimed Queen, and in the course of the day 
showed herself from the baloony of the palace. The head officer ai Analakely 
was soon after sommoned by ihe Queen, and requested by her to see the body 
interred in the best way they possibly could. He then, with the workmen 
from this place, made the grave. They had the body from Tuesday morning 
till Thursday, when the grave was finished. Before putting the body into the 
grave, he asked one of the men to remove the cloth from the face ; the man 
did so, and exposed all the face above the upper lip, and they had no doubt 
whatever of the identity of the body. At some dist-ance to the west, the people 
got up a report that he was still alive and with them ; and a great numb'er of 
the people got into a kind of revolt on the subject. But troops were sent to 
quash the tumult ; 2000 men were killed, and a large number of women and 
children were brought to Antananarivo as slaves. The Queen, however, 
decUned to hold them in slavery, and sent them back with some money. The 
French are very angry about the non-fulfilment of the treaties between them 
and the late foolish King, and for which the latter lost his life ; but it is not 
in the power of the Queen to fulfil Badama's part of the treaties, if she were 
ever so willing. The^officers and people would probably send her a^^er hear 
husband if she attempted to do such a thing. One would think thait such a 
position should moderate the violence of the French." 

On the whole, when we consider the knowledge possessed by Mx, Cameron 
of the language, character, and manners of the people of Madagascar, and 
the favourable position which he enjoyed for ascertaining the truth or other- 
wise of the report which he gives above, we are strongly inclined to concur 
in the conclusion at which he arrives, namely, that the King was actually 
assassinated at Antananarivo, at the time of the revolution — the 12th of 
May nit. Of course we are ignorant of the details of the case, for which we 
must patiently wait for further arrivals ; and we shall be glad to find that 
the report has not originated either in astonishing credulity or gross impos- 

"We must again, however, remind our readers that the successive communi- 
cations we have received in reference to the state and progress of the Mission, 
hxve been nniformly most cheering ; and that, if the internal state of the 
country is not disturbed by the armed intervention of the French Government, 
in support of the monstrous treaty granted by the late King to M. Lambert, 
the fatuie history of Madagascar promises to be bright, both in respect to the 
improvement of society and the progress of the Gospel. Let the prayeors of 
the Churches, then, be continued with humility and fervour to the great 
Governor of nations, that He would guide the councils of rulers — frustrate the 
\ of the selfish — and bring forth, out of passing evUs, aboundiog good.

OuB Mission in tHs immense and ever increasing city, when we consider the 
willingneBS of the people to listen to Christian truth, and the numbers that 
baye actually embraced it, is highly encouraging. But, on the other hand, 
the unparalleled influx of strangers driven into the city for protection and 
support, and the state of destitution and disease to which thousands and tens 
of thousands have been reduced by the horrors of intestine war, could not 
fell to operate very prejudicially upon the labours of our missionaries. 

The following letter, from the Rev. "William Muikhead, will show the 
overwhelming character of these labours ; and we can only rejoice tiiat, 
notwithstanding the difficulties with which our Brethren have to contend, 
&ey are enabled, by means of native agency, and under the blessing of Grod, 
to widen the circle of their operations, and are cherishing sanguine hopes of 
^ eatablishment of the Gospel in a hundred villages in the country around 

We trust that before this Mr. Muirhead has been joined by the Eev. R. J. 
TnoKAs, who will, we doubt not, prove an efficient fellow labourer with oui 
devoted Brother. 

OCTOBBR 28rd, 1893. 


" During the past six months, thirty-one have been received as catechumens, 
and a few have been baptized. The very peculiar state of things here has 
operated against our apparent success to a great extent, and it will be needful 
to supply the charities, as well as preach the truths of Christianity to the 
people, in their present distressed condition. Ample fiinds have be^i provided 
by friends for this purpose, and from time to time distribution has been made ^ 
on a large scale. But this general system is not foimd to be of much advan- 
tage. Though the Grospel is announced to all in a promiscuous mannei% yet, 
as th^ are professedly assembled for charitable purposes, the former is lost 
sight of, while the latter is all in all. It seems an important duty at this 
period to exhibit the amenities and blessings of our religion in connection with 
it, and in the case of those who give evidence of interest or concern in it. As 
the winter is approaching, this appeal comes more strongly upon us, and, by 
a timely response to it, we hope to commend to many aroimd us the more 
spiritual blessings of Christianity. 


"The efforts made by the Chinese to alleviate the sufferings of their 
countrymen are perfectly astonishing. Several associations have long been 

B 2 


in existence that dispense an immense amount of cliaritj to the thousands of 
needy and distressed all around. Soup-kitchens and clothing establishments 
have been formed, and from day to day hundreds are kept alive through their 
influence. During this year coffins have been also supplied for the dead, at 
the rate of four and five hundi-ed a day, and everywhere these institutions are 
highly commended. Such are the circumstances of the people at present, that 
it is this kind of things which chiefly meets their views ; and when the Grospel 
is preached to them, a primary consideration with them is, what are the 
advantages connected with it. Of course the Roman Catholics are wise in 
their generation, and act accordingly in this matter. But apart from them, 
and the conduct of the heathen in the case, our blessed Lord and the conduct 
of the primitive Church sufficiently point out the course we should adopt in 
the inculcation and exhibition of the generous spirit of Christianity. 

" I am thus particular in referring to this point, ftx)m a conviction of its 
having been too much disregarded in our past labours, and from our having* 
been so far behind the pressing wants and claims of the times. Our object is 
to meet these wants more folly in the future, as connected with the preaching* 
of the Gospel, and by aid from the Native Church and our foreign Christian 
friends, to extend our efforts in this way to 'them that believe.' When 
existing necessities shall have passed away, the aid now afforded will be 
gratefully remembered, while its fruits may be found to appear in the 
increased prosperity and advancement of the Church. 


" Our country stations are in a hopeful condition. At one of them we are 
building a chapel that will cost about £100, and it is exciting considerable 
interest in the coimtry round about. Already fifty converts are there ; twenty 
or twenty-five are on the roll of instructed, and a pleasing feeling is abroad 
in relation to Christianity. I was in that direction a short time ago for a 
week, and visited a number of places, all in a sad state of desolation. . It is 
our design, however, to establish, under the care of native agents, about 
twenty stations and churches, and the whole under the vigilant oversight 
of the foreign missionary. As the work goes on and the coimtry is tran- 
quillized, it is resolved to increase the number of these to a hundred or 
so, extending through the province in every possible direction. We find 
the Roman Catholics are taking due advantage of the openings in the 
country. They are building chapels and forming stations in many different 
places; and though not impelled by them, it is needful to imbue ihe 
Mission with life and vigour, for the sake of expansion and confirmation 
in the case of those connected with us. 

** The hospital is being carried on with the usual efficiency. The attendance 
is as large as before, and hundreds are gathered together daily to hear the 
Word of life."

FOR JANUAKY, 1864. 5 



The sixteentfa. voyage of our missionary ship, under the superintendence of 
the Ret. W. "W- Gixl, of Mangaia, and the Ret. John Jones, of Mare, was 
soccessfoUy accomplished during the autumn of 1862. The journal has only 
recently readied, us ; but, knowing the deep sympathy which the friends of 
the Society, and especially the young, cherish in the continued usefulness 
which attends the visits of the *' John Williams," we are persuaded a few 
extocts will afford them pleasure and encouragement. 

It is now twenty years, within a few weeks, since our good ship, designed, 
by the name slie bears, to commemorate and extend the labours of the 
mart3rred "Williams, began to plough those distant and dangerous seas ; and, 
throughout tliis long^ period, though often in peril, she has, by the good 
proTidence of Grod, always escaped serious injury. With the return of each 
Toyage she visits new islands, often inhabited by pagan savages; and, 
although they may haTe found heretofore in the white man their cruel 
enemy, they have in no instance molested the officers or crew of the 
missionary ship. The explanation of this will be found in the truth that 
her fame has gone out through all the groups of the Pacific ; and the people 
hare hailed her approach as the messenger of peace, and giren her welcome 
to their shores. 

" Sept. 17thy 1862. — ^We bade farewell to our Sydney friends, and once more 
sailed for our isXand home. Next day we were becalmed ; but on the night 
following a strong breeze sprang up, and carried us rapidly on our course. 
On Tuesday morning the welcome shout of * Land ho ! ' was heard, and in a 
few hours we were off Norfolk Island. Captain WilHams was requested by 
the Gtovemor of New South Wales to couTey to that interesting spot various 
soppHes, and a passenger named Fredrick Young. Freight, to the Gk)vemor'8 
surprise, we declined ; but it was intimated that a donation to the Society 
would be accepted. 


"We found that 'Norfolk Island' comprises three islets: JPkilip Island, 
I^epean Island, and Noifolh Island itself, which is nineteen and a half miles 
round; evidently the three isles were formerly one. Norfolk Island is a 
beautiful spot, everywhere adorned by the noble pine which deriTes its name 
from it. Many of those trees are of gigantic growth. We spent a day 
landing their greatly-needed supplies. The Rev. Mr. Nobbs gave us a very 
kind reception. The islanders made a donation of £20 to the Society, and 
sent presents for the ship. Mr. Nobbs estimates the present population at 
300. l>aring the six years they have been on the island there have been 100 
births* and ^only fifteen deaths (four of these were accidental) ; so that the 


island must be remai'kably healthy. English only is spoken. There are a 
very few old people living who can speak the Tahitian langfuage. They are 
Tery respectful to visitors, and are kind ; they are very inteUigemt ; a book is 
a moat acceptable present. They meet for Divine worship where formerly 
the convicts assembled on the Sabbath. They seemed to be contented and 
happy. They subsist on the English potato, the sweet potato, the yam, and 
Indian com ; wheaten flour, sugar, and salt are imported. We saw the taro 
plant growing freely. Each person is entitled upon maniage to fifty acres of 
lajid; and each takes his turn in supplying vessels with what they may 
require, so that there can be no pauperism among them. They are a good- 
looking race, a shade darker than ourselves, and tall. They are strictly 
moral ; many, we hope, are decidedly pious. 

" It seems that shortly after their migration to Norfolk Island, two families 
returned to Pitcaim's, and are doing well there. 

" Many inquiries were made by the islanders as to the spread of the Grospel 
in Polynesia. They asked after several missionaries by name ; one of them 
said that he distinctly remembered a sermon preached by the Rev. J. Williams 
at Tahiti, in 1831, from the words, * Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saiih 
your God.' One of them is now pr^>aring at Auckland to go forth as a 
missionary under the auspices of Bishop Patteson. It was with nmch regret 
that we parted so soon from these interesting people. 


" Sept. 2Qth, — ^We dropped anchor off the station of the Rev. J. Jon#s» on 
the island of Mari, found the teachers left here all well, and Mr. Jones ready 
to accompany us as deputation to the dark islands of Western Polynesia. 
Since we were here on our way to Sydney, six person have been killed and 
eaten among the heathen tribes, Teanae's people have been fighting with their 
enemies, and have entirely scattered them. Their success has inclined them 
to think favourably of Christianity, and as the result, they have embraced 
that religion. The people of this station are improving fast under Ohristian 
instruction, and are becoming annually more civilized, and leaving their hea- 
then brethren farther than ever in the rear. The contrast is very great 
between the peaceable and decently clothed Christians, and the whitewashed, 
fiendish looking heathen, who delight only in war, and devouring each others" 

" The missionaries report here that the disastrous effects of the measles 
have passed away. The war in which the Christians were compelled to 
engage, to defend themselves from the inroads of the heathen tribes, has been 
mercifully brought to a close, and the Christians are able to give their whole 
attention to the cultivation of the soil, and public improvements for their 
temporal benefit, and to attend upon schools and the services of the 
sanctuary without distraction. 

'' 'Hie new stone church at Mr. Jones's station, which has been at a stand- 
still so long, owing to war, pestilence, and famine combined, is now in 
progress again. It is already ten feet above the ground, whieh with nine feet 
below for a foundation, gives nineteen feet of two and a half thick, solid 

FOB JAKUAKY, 1864. 7 

mMacfnrj. The people give one week per month to this bmlding ; the rest of 
tiieir time thej are engaged in their gardens, in erecting or repairing their 
own premises. The public schools are weD attended, which are held only on 
Mondays and Saturdays, the people being at their plantations in the interior. 
" I%e Boarding Schools, conducted respectively by Mrs. Jones and Mrs. 
Greagh, to obviate the necessity of the children leaving with their parents to 
go inland, are both in a flourishing condition. These boarding-schools are 
sopported by private subscriptions. The missionaries anticipate much good 
to result from them in the coming generations. The children now being 
trained and educated in them will then be exerting great influence among 
the people; their knowledge wiU be power, their position will command 
respect, and their instructionfl attention. 

" The Church under the care of Mr. Jones numbers 151 ; that rmder the 
care of Mr. Creagh, 103. Besides these there is a goodly number of candi- 
dates for Church-fellowship at each station. An institution for the training 
of native evangdists has been organized, under the care of Mr. Jones, with 
the sanction of the Board of Directors at home. Eleven promising young 
Bien have been admitted; th^ have themselves built their own dwelling- 
hooBes and lecture-room — ^the latter is not yet completed. Two young men 
from this institution were appointed as teachers, to proceed in the ' John 
WflKama,' to Amf^iym, in company with the two natives of that island, 
hroog^ away last year in the ' John WilHams,' and placed for instruction 
nder the eare of Mr. Jones. These two lads were doubtiess the first who 
had cprer left their island home, and now that they had the prospect of 
ntoming, their exeitement and ddight was very great. 

•* Oct, 3rrf. — Taking Mr. Jones on beard as deputation, we proceeded to 
Gnwahma, the station of Mr. Creagh. 

** We saw here some fine muscular men bdonging to the tribe of heathen 
who hove just embraced Christianity. They had procured some caHco for 
deiUng, aad had come to Nece to spend their first Obristian Sabbath. The 
excitement of the change to them is something like what a holiday is to young 
people at home. 

•* Mr. Creagh is printer for the whole of the Loyalty Group, Mar6, Lifn, 
and nea» three distinct dialects ; so that together with his other duties as a 
mJaaianaTy, he must have his hands full. He has a very nicely fitted up 
prkitaBg-office, and is assisted in it by some of the natives belongmg to his 
own station, who make very good attempts in the various branches of the 
work ; still they require his constant supervision, and like all other natives in 
theft seas — if not elsewhere — are unable to do a tidy job of mechanical work 
withoat some one to plan out, arrange, and direct tii^n. 

*' '&» people <^ tiiis island, althongh so lately emerged from the grossed 
h catlMn practices and canmbalism, are doing wonders for a people so 
destitute, when we remember too, that €%ht years ago no Church was formed 
amongst them ; now the two Churches number 254 members, and during the 
past year they raised upwards of £91 for the London Missionary Society, 
being £17 7«. 6<^. towards the funds of the Society, for the spresul of the 
Gospel among the heathen, and £73 13i. Qd. as payment for their books, to 
\ m defraying the expenses of tiie printing-office. The Churches here have 


also eommenced to sn^ort their own evangelists, by making an fl-n-nnal collec- 
tion of clothing and useful articles for their use. They have always supplied 
them with a weekly or monthly allowance of yegetables. I 


" At the meeting of the missionaries here it was found necessary for the 
* John Williams ' to proceed direct to Aneiteum before going to Lifu and 
Uea, and October 9th we reached that island, and cast anchor in the harboiur 
off Mr. Geddie's station. Messrs. Geddie and Copeland were soon on board ; 
we learnt from them that all the members of the Mission were well, and that 
the good work in which they were engaged was prospering. Mrs. Johnstone, 
widow of Bey. Mr. Johnstone, late of Tanna, is zealously engaged conducting' 
a school for Mrs. Geddie. We doubt not that in after years the missionaries 
on this island will bless God that such a school ever existed. The deputation, 
met in committee with the Brethren of this island. Mr. Copeland and Dr. 
Turner were appointed deputation for next year, 1863. 

" Mr. Copeland contemplates recommencing the Mission on Tlramanganext 
April, and wishes two of our best teachers to be appointed as his assistants in 
the work. In the meantime th^ will remain with him on Aneiteum to 
become initiated into the dialect. Putaura and Putangi, two Barotongau 
teachers, acceded to the request of our Mends. Mr. Geddie is desirous that 
Elia, formerly resident on Eramanga, should be sent down by the Samoaji 
Brethren, to co-operate with Putaura and Putangi, as he is well known and 
much Hked by the Eramangans. The Brethren on Aneiteum also request 
that Mr. Krause send three additional Rarotongan teachers by the ' John 
Williams,' on her return to Sydney, to reinforce the New Hebrides Mission. 

''We were rgoiced to learn from our Brethren here, that three new 
missionaries are expected next year in company with the Bct. J. Inglis, to 
reinforce the New Hebrides Mission. Baurara, a Rarotongan teacher, whom 
we left here temporarily on our way up to Sydney, was in good health, but 
his wife being weakly, it was decided that they should be permanently located 
on the Loyalty Islands. 

" Our coming to Aneiteum first, before proceeding to the North, proved 
very providential, as we here learnt the fate of the Santo Mission, which ia 
entirely broken up. The teachers were attacked by the malaria a fortnight 
after landing. First, the wife of Vaitari died on November 22nd, 1861 ; on the 
6th of December both the teachers themselves died — Lameka and Vaitari — 
leaving Lameka's wife only, with their assistant teacher, Daniela, and hia 
wife. This couple were quite free from the fever, as they are natives of Fate, 
an unhealthy island. Lamia's wife would doubtless have been carried off^ 
too, but for the great kindness of Captain Hastings, of the * Spec,' a sandal- 
wood trader belonging to Mr. Bums, a gentleman whose kindness to our 
teachers is above all praise. Captain Hastings permitted her to live six 
weeks on board, while lying off Santo, and then brought her, with Daniela 
and his wife, to Aneiteum, where we found them awaiting the *John 

** The Mission on Tanna being so completely broken up, it was thought

ooneceesarj for us to call there, and the ' John Knox,' missionaiy schooner, 
expected soon to visit Fotuna and Nine. 


" On the Idth October we sailed for Eramanga, to restore the remaining 
nine Christian refVigeee to their own island. We took on board also Daniela 
and his wife, in order to take them to Fate, their own conntrj. 

" October \Aith (Tuesday). — Cast anchor in Dillon's Bay. Eramanga, like 
Tanna, is about seventy miles in circumference. The coast round this island 
ia much Eke Mar6 — of coral formation ; but the interior is very different, being 
Tolcanic, and consisting of mountain ranges. There is a very picturesque 
vallej, leading from Dillon's Bay away up into the mountains, and a good 
stream of water runs down the valley into the sea. No reef is anywhere to be 
seal, and anchorage can be found only close in shore. As soon as we had 
east anchor, we perceived the beach to be unusually thick with natives ; at the 
same time we saw natives pouring in in streams from all directions. Ever 
and anon as they emerged from some thicket which overhung their path, and 
came in si^^t of the ship, they raised tremendous shouts and shook their 
weapons, as if they were deriding us who brought to them the Gospel. At 
length, Mana and Joe, two Eramangan evangelists, who had been trained 
at Samoa^ who stood futhful to their profession and assisted Mr. Gordon to 
the last, came off in a canoe. We learnt from them that the gathering of the 
natives was to hold their great annual festival — ^the verjf identical occasion on 
which Williams and Harris landed twenty-three years ago, and the excitement 
of which led to their cruel murder ! Yes, there was the same sandy knoll, 
raised up by the running stream on one side and the flowing sea on the other, 
down which Mr. Williams ran into the sea. There, too, blackening that spot, 
were some of the same savages who blackened it with their dusky bodies on 
that memorable day, and who assisted both in killing and eating the man of 
God ! Yes, and there was the same river still running just as it ran then, and 
there was the same sea breaking still upon the beach, as it broke then, red- 
dened with Williams's blood. It was considered rather dangerous for us to ' 
risk ourselves ashore, especially as Mr. and Mrs. Gordon had been murdered 
80 lately, and that Williams and Harris had been killed under preciBcly the 
same circumstances as those now transpiring ashore. Yet we thought it was 
our duty as deputation to see the refugees ashore, and also to walk to Mr. 
Henry's sandal- wood establishment, toleam something of the state of thenatives. 
Hence a boat was lowered, and, having landed the Eramangan natives, we 
proceeded to Mr. Henry's establishment. As we passed up, many of the savages 
forded the stream to gaze at us (for we had taken the precaution to land on 
the opposite side of the stream from that on which Williams and Harris were 
killed, and on which the savages were congregated in such immense numbers). 
They all had their weapons, and it appeared to us that we were not in a very 
secure position. The boat backed into deep water as soon as we stepped ashore, 
and lay off to await our return. We found Mr. Henry, his wife, and family^ 
well, with one or two exceptions, but in constant dread of their lives. The 
revolver in the belt appeared as necessary to their existence as the air which 
they breathed : they dared not leave their doors without it. They told us 


that ibe nfttiFee had thraotoiad to kill ihem all that daj or MSwe the Umt 
closed, hence they had made preparatiom. Several hundred of these hlood- 
thirstj savages had visited their premises that morning, perhaps with the 
intent to feel their way b^ore th«y stmok the blow. While we were there, 
some thirty or forty were ronnd iJie doors with their bows and arrows and 
axes f and ever and anon deafening shouts arotmd, enot^j^ under the excit- 
ing drcnmstances of the day, to frighten anybody. Mr. Henry told us that 
he thonght a Mission might be re-established on that side of the river, but not 
on the opposite side where Mr. and Mrs. Gordon were kiUed. Nevertheless, 
it is his opinion, and we coincide with him, that no missionary shoold reside 
on Eramanga without the means of self-defence. The Eramangans are a 
cowardly race, and generally attack persons who are unarmed or are unpre- 
pared to resist. But they are so habituated to murder, that to be unarmed 
is a powerful incentive to crime on their part. 

" When the * John Williams * called last year, Kaniani, the chief who killed 
Williams, professed to the deputation great sorrow for the murder of Mr. and 
Mrs. Gordon; but now all pretty well understand that he had a hand in it» 
for th^ were killed on his territory, and it is impossible for a person under 
the protection of any chief to be killed without his leave ; such a thing would 
oaoae a war and great disturbance, but the murderous party have not even 
been reprimanded ; indeed, we find Kaniam. on our present visit, Uving in dose 
friendship with them« and unfriendly with those young men who were attached 
to Mr. (Jordon, and who are now trying to hold their ground (five in number) 
against all their heathen brethreiL The seven we have now brought from 
Aneitenm will augment their number to twelve ; though subsequently two 
of these wished to proceed to Mar^ for further instructions, henoe t^i only will 
remain. They live together in one house for mutual proteotion, and Mr. Henry 
very kindly lends them muskets, which, no doubt, tends veiy much to their 
seonrity. They hold Divine worship on Sabbath, and seven or eight heathens 
attend their instructions. They are threatened from time to time, but the 
ohief with whom they live is friendly to them. There is every probability that 
Mr. Oopeland wiU attempt to recommence the Mission here neopt spring. We 
think him a man well adapted to cope with the peculiar difficulties connected 
with the work on this island. We ^'cached the boat in safety. 

" Having completed our business, we weighed anchor and stood off for Mari, 

^ Tuesday, October I7th, — Beached Mar^, and landed at Guwahma. 

''Eanraa, a Mangaian teacher, was left here, as there is some probability of 
an opening among the heathen. During our short absence^ many have come 
over to the side of Christianity. There is a shaking among the dry bones 
which have lain so long dry. Still the heathen rage ; during that short period 
three have been killed and eaten. 


" Taking on board those of our number whom we had left behind, we steored 
lor Lifa. We found that Mr. McFarlane had left his temporary residence and 
entered his new house, and, although still unfinished, he must feel it a great 
contrast to the one he was obliged to make his home when first he landed.

** Taeeday Morning, Oeiober 21«1 — ^We aailed fior IJba, and, having a good 
breeze, we reached it in time to enter the splendid lagoon, and cast anchor 
before snnset. It is an enchanting place; numbers of islets diversify and 
adorn the scene. Uea is a lagoon iaiand; but in many parts of it the forma* 
ti<m doedy resembles the other islands of the LoyaUj Group. Forests of 
cocoa-nut trees appear to extend in aill directions. The principal chief, 
Wenegei (which ia an hereditary titie}» waa aoott on koaed, with some other 
chiefs, as attendants. They are a very fine race of people, of a light colour, 
and apparently of a mild disposition. Their houses, canoes, and implements 
show them to be intellectually superior to any of the oiSier natives of these 
islanda. Many of their canoes were rigged out as schooners, with their flags 
flying, cutting tihrough the water with great velocity. Apolo, who is located 
at the head station with the chie( eame on board shortly after we had east 
anchor. He, wi& all ^he teadhera and nativea, waa liilljy expeetmg a miasion- 
oy ihda time. Having been diaappoocnted ao often, tiiey had aom^ow ceane 
to tlM ociuduAon thait it would be impoaaible for the ihip to oooae again 
wiihont one; and aeeing a young miaaimnfiTy^ Mr. Yiviaa, on board, their 
hopea were raised enren a pitch kid^ber, only to be again diaaj^Konted, aa in 
fanner yeara. We went ashore with the teachers, and spent the night there. 
Till near midnight we were engaged in listening to the report the teachers had 
to give us of their troubles occasioned by the ill-treatment and Jesuitical 
conduct of the PopiBh priests. 

** We saw the young chief, but we were entirely at a loss aa to what to 
adviae him to do ; but we told him that he had better remain where he waa 
milfl he should hear again ftt>m ua. Our idea ia to se^ redress from the 
Governor of New Caledonia. Who will say that Bomanism has ohaaged, or 
canahangeP A prieafs idea of Hberty ia freedom to pmaelyiiio among the 
BNytaatanta, and fraedom to punish to tibkc death thoae who entertain opposite 
opiniona. If an Engliah miaaionaiy reaided on Uea^ theae diaaatera would 


not occur. The priests would be afraid to carry things so fiur. A missionary 
is needed for this station at once. 

"Afterwards we received presents of yegetables, pigs, and poohry, from 
the six stations where the teachers are located. The spokesman said, ' This 
present is collected to bid a welcome to the missionarj we have so long ex- 
pected. Where is heP Yon missionaries," he continaed, 'have fiuled to 
fulfil your engagement. We ha^e not failed to wait for him andtoexpect him.* 
We replied that we were equally sorry with themselTes, but that they must 
exercise their patience a little longer, and perhaps the next time the missionarj 
ship arriyed, they would obtain the object of their great desire; for we had 
written to the Churches in England many urgent letters, and we though they 
would be able no longer to withstand the appeals. 

** Four young men from this island have spent the greater part of the past 
year in ll^s. Jones's boarding-school on Mar6. We now restored them to their 
homes, where we hope they will make themselyes useful in assisting the 
teachers to instruct their fallow-countrymen. We had many yery urgent 
applications from bright, intdligent youths, to return with us, and it pained 
us much to be compelled to refuse them ; but we could not procure them a 
passage in our missionary ship." 

{To he eonclmded im our next.) 



Ik this populous island the Word of the Lord has free course and is glorified. 
The labourers are indeed few, but the hanrest is great ; and we can only 
ascribe it to the special power and grace of God that, with a European 
agency so limited as that which has hitherto occupied the island, the effects 
of the Oospel haye been so strikingly manifest and so widely extended. 

The last Beport from the Bsy. S. IICxcfaslahs is more cheering than any 
we haye yet receiyed ; the fierce and bitter opposition of the heathen against 
the Christian conyerts has, to a great extent, been oyeroome; and those who 
once sought the missionary's lifb, now inyite his labours and regard him with 
respect and affection. And these results haye been accomplished, notwith- 
standing the actiye and determined opposition of the Catholic missionaries who 
are located on the island, and who employ their usual ingenuity, sophistiy, 
and misrepresentation to withstand the cause of truth. We are glad to find 
that our missionary Brethren ayoid, so &r as they are able, any direct 
collision with these propagators of error and superstition, and content them- 
selyes with preaching the Oospel of the blessed God, depending on the 
promised grace of the Holy Spirit to apply its glorious truths to the hearts of 
the people. 

Mr. Macferlane reports the formation of an Institution on lAfa for training 
27atiye Teachers, and that he has already receiyed twenty candidates, and 
commenced his labours among them. It has been mainly by native agency 

FOB JANUABT, 1864. 13 

tiiat fhe saccess already realized has been efEeoted, and we cannot donbt that 
the extension of such labonrs, by men properly instructed and prepared as 
erangelistSy KrilL be followed by corresponding results. 

The desire of the people for the blessings of education is growing Both 
the young and the adult manifest a thirst for knowledge sanctified by 
religion ; and when teachers are found in sufficient numbers to meet this 
desire^ we may expect a rapid extension of education among the islanders* 
Their advancement, too, in the habits of dyilized life is truly wonderful^ 
when it is remembered that a few years since, and but a few, they were 
unclothed, bloodthirsty savages, delighting in murder, and revelling in the 
hoTTOiB of cannibalism. Of these people our missionary may well remark : — 
** Eeally it is a perfect riddle to me how and from what source these natives 
get sach a variety of good and appropriate clothing. It cheered our hearts 
to see such a vast assemblage of black ^es, drawn together to hear the Word 
of Qod, and contribute their mite for its diffusion among their heathen 
brethren. They sat together, neat and clean, in love, peace, and order, who 
had formerly been enemies, and had eaten each other's Mends and relatives. 
Some of Ihem made spirited and appropriate speeches, drawing the contrast 
between the past and present, to which their countrymen listened with the 
gieatest attention," 

While our Brethren in the South Pacific Islands are reaping these blessed 
lewardB of their self-denying zeal and love, we trust that the Mends of the 
Society at home will *' not be weary in well doing," but remain '* sted&st, 
immoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as they 
know that their labour is not in vain in the Lord." 


** Wide Bay, Lifii, June 18, 1863. 
** Bxv. AND DEAB SiB, — OuT May Meetings are now completed ; we held them ' 
in three diiferent parts of the island with the most gratifying results. The 
aoBemhUeB were large and e^en respectable. Beally it is a perfect riddle to 
me how and from what source these natives get such a variety of good and 
ap fwr op r i ate clothing. It cheered our hearts to see such a vast assemblage of 
Uack faces, drawn together to hear the Word of Qod, and contribute their 
mite for ita diffdsion among their heathen brethren. They sat together, neat 
and dean, in love, peace, and order, who had formerly been enemies, and had 
eaten each other's Mends and relativea. Some of them made spirited and 
afipropriate speeches, drawing the contrast between the past and present, to 
which their countrymen listened with the greatest attention. Nearly all the 
remaining heathen on the island were present, and were exhorted and appealed 
to most pointedly and faithfully by their black Brethren. The collections 
were also a decided improvement upon last year, although by no means what 
we desire and hope to attain. They amount to about £40 — about £15 in cash, 
and the remainder in cocoa-nut fibre. Heathenism on the island is fast 
becoming a thing of the past. The professed heathen arenow few in number, 


and ohona oC thaix rtrensri^ There has wai b#en » Hcwythaa £BMi or a mglit 
daaoe on thU islaad for some time. X si^pote voch, praoticee are dead and 
buried, and will soon be lost in oblivion. The power and iaflnence of the 
Goipel are felt and acknowledged throughout the length and breadth of this 
large island. The painted heathen and beaded papist are alike arrested and 
subdued. A remarkable proof of this occurred some time ago, when the 
priests desired their followers to openly and flagrantly violate the Sabbath, by 
practising a number of games upon that sacred day. The notivee, however, 
relhsed to take any part in the pro co e din g, saying they were afiraidto do such 
tUmga upon Qod*s day. The afctempt to establish the gaanea was consequently 


" The priests here are as unwearied as ever in their exertions, although lees 
noisy. They have tried to storm this citadel, and have failed to make even a 
breach ; they are now determined to undermine it. They have made strenuous 
efforts to raise to undue importance the names of ' Maliu ' and ' Petelu,' but 
the natives still love and adhere to the name of Ohrist, and do not appear to 
fM disposed in the lightest degree to desert the ' Bock of Ages.' There^ has 
been great ckunour about the utOxty and snperionty of c ro s s es , images, and 
pictures to convey truths to the native mind ; but our pec^ie are growing^ 
awdoos to po ss e ss the Hving llf ord. It is amusiBg to sea how oonfssed the 
papists aj^^ear wlien th^ oross the pat^ of some of o«r p os p to "t he oae ifxth

Word in his hand. They assemble for evening prayer ; Uie one sings and 
counts his beads, the other takes his *' Matins," reads, exhorts^ and prays. 
These people are passionately fond of books, to the great annoyance of the 
priests, who evidently 'love darkness rather than light,' and consider 'ignorance 
the mother of devotion.* The power and adaptation of God's Word to win the 
heart, subdue tbe pasaiiAB, sad enlighten the understanding, is remarkably 
illustrated in these natives. Hie paiests would have them undervalne and 
discard the saored vcfaune, and leave their semis and minds in Uieir hands ; 
hence their constant dogmakioal yet msQ^ortad andnajiwhifiahle nffirisstinitu

W«rd leads the natives to doubt the yerscity of tibeir sUtements. flrmso 
quently, instead of gaining ground, they are lonng it ; they are fanning, not 
extinguishing the natives' desire to possess and becosM aoqfoainted with i^ 
Word of God. This people, although vastly inlerior in many respeets to Hke 
noble Bereans, are neverthelsss like them, in their desurs to search t^ 
Seriptures Auly, to see whether ihe/se things are so. It is eoHsee^fin^ 
pleasing and encouraging to see the bold stand which these natives take 
upon tiie Bible ; how. they remain nnscared and unmoved by tiie "thi oa^s and 
bribes of the emissaries of the Pope ; the latter are met witiia * Onmssaiththe 
Lord,' on every hand. They have strennooily endeavoured to estabhidi out- 
stations on different parts of tite island, bnt hare utterly ^Miled ; indssd, 
there is an evident growing dislike amongst the natives fbr iSke piissls and

tiie sentunente of the king, aad nearly the whde of the so-ealled Roman 
Os tho l i cs, but they are deterred from this oowse through lear; they maintain 
that, haying brought the priests here, they must stand by th«Bi, else they 
wift be taken priaonen by the French authorities. Ferhi^ you are not 
•ware that the Idngof this half of the isbnd sternly opposed the inirodaotion 
cf Christiaiiity iinto his domimons, and used erery effort in his power to pre- 
▼esit it. His snlgscts, howerer, were iKroorably dii^sed towards the 'new

and inddhtigftbl e 'Pao' (a Borotongan; the first naiare teacher sent here). 
Hie heathens soon became the minoriiy, and began to be alarmed. The king, 
sopposing his position and safety at stake, sent his &ther to ]iew Caledonia 
to inrite the priests ov^er hera Hiey had heard of death and dsstniction fol- 
Jbrring in the wake of the priest <m almost erery part of New Caledonia

the 'new thing' from the it^and, whii^ possiibly might hsire happened had not 
wi a aionsr les anriyed in time to take the helm, and gnide the Teasel through 
the storm. 


''It is a remarkable fact that wherever there has been a chia& or an 
in^ortant person, who has opposed the priests on New Caledonia or the 
Ide of Pines, they have been most inveterate enemies to the French GoTem> 
ment, and guilty of the foulest crimes (at least have been represented as such 
by the priests) ; for which they have either been shot, or sent as conyicts to 
Tahiti I am told that almost every chief on the Isleof Pines has disappeared, 
in order to subdue the natives, and lead them into the arms of the mother 
chmreh. They have endeavoured to misrepresent the conduct of the natives 
on this island and those of Ilea, to the captain a of French men-of-war which 
called here; but I am happy to state that I have be^i able to counteract 
their influence, by placing matters in their proper light. I have hitherto 
found Fren^ officers hononrable and upright men, who ISoel Httle disposed to 
receive the statements and carry out the designs of these priests, feddng nn- 
Aofabtedlj that they are unable to render them the assistance they solicit 
without the grossest ij\justica The strug^ here will doubtless be severe 
and protracted, but we have nothing to fear. The Truth at times maj be 
enveloped in amoke, and her voice loet in the clamour of the ignorant and 
prejudiced ; but the vapour will pass away, and renreal her standing erect in 
aU her purii^y and loveliness, unchanged, unchanging, etevnaHy the same, 
asserting and pressing her claims xipon the a t tenti e ^^ ^^^ ly WlB ^! ^ f€ ^^®>7 
nation and every tribe. 


'* The priests have now changed their point of attack. Thej no longer dwell 
upon the differences between Roman CatholidBm and Protestantism, but^ 
upon the points of similitude, which are greatly magnified by them. The 
storming, I guess, is over. Now comes the persevering, noiseless, oft-tried 
scheme of sapping the foundation. They are now telling the natives that 
the two religions are much the same, but that theirs is infiniteljr more easy, 
and better adapted to them. 

*' ' They,' said the priest to a man the other day, ' urge you to abstain from 
smoking ; we allow and encourage you to smoke. They require you strictl j 
to observe the Sabbath ; we only ask you to observe a part of it. Th^ forbid 
the continuation of a number of your heathen games; our religion does not 
restrain you from such things. Why not worship with usP' I confess 
that this sort of reasoning has secured for them a number of unprincipled 
fellows, from the ranks of the heathen, who were ashamed of their name, yet 
unwilling to abandon their habits and lead a better life ; they therefore call 
themselves Boman Catholics, but continue as before. Some of them have 
been known to take from their necks the image of the Virgin Mary, and 
hang it up with its ficu^ to the wall, saying, * You stay there ; I am just goin^ 
to see another person, but I shall come back to you by-and-by.' 

*' The priests are now earnestly soliciting the aid of the secular arm. We 
have b^een expecting the Gk>vemor here during the last* ten months ; but it is 
my firm conviction that His Excellency purpoedy avoids calling here. I 
tmderstand he is a much more liberal man than the former one. However, 
we are not content with the abililj to retain our position merely, but we are 
anxious, and determined, if possible, to gain ground. 


" There is the large and important island of New Caledonia, within a day's 
sail from us, sunk in the grossest ignorance and idolatry, with no other 
instructors and g^des but Popish priests, who will only lead the natives out 
of one maze into another. Messengers have been here frx>m one of the tribes 
there, requesting us to send them teachers ; but what can we do at present P 
My interview with the late Gk>vemor upon the sulject was most unsatisfeu^rj ; 
he promised to write to France, making known our request, but could not 
give us any hope of success in the attempt to establish a Mission upon New 
Caledonia. We intend repeating our request to the new Governor, and hope 
and pray for success. 


" We have commenced the Institution here for training native teachers and 
pastors. After the opening service and feast, I assembled the Church-members 
to consult upon the subject of aiding in the support of the Institution. Al- 
though from the unproductiveness of these islands, the natives cannot be 
expected to do much, yet I consider it important to instil into their minds 
the principle of providing for their own institutions and teachers. A spirited^ 
and somewhat lengthy discussion took place amongst the members. Some» 
in the ardour of zeal, would make it incumbent upon the Church to undertake 
at once the entire support of the Institution. I did not encourage this step. 

FOB JANTJARY, 1864. 17 

as I knew they were not prepared for it. After a number of plans had been 
proposed, it was finally arranged that each Church-member throughout the 
island should give three large yams%nnua]ly, for the support of the members 
of the Institution, these to be collected during the days of harvest. To this 
arrangement ihe Church-members hare unanimously agreed ; and although at 
present we are more solicitous about the principles inculcated, than the 
azDonnt given, yet as there are over a thousand members on the island, yon 
will easily perceive that the yams will greatly assist in defraying the expenses 
difhe Institution. 

"" We had about thirty applicants for admission to the Institution, twenty 
of whom I accepted ; with many of them I am personally acquainted, and 
entertain a yery favourable opinion of their capabilities. Six of the number 
are from my young men's class, the others from different parts of the island. 
Judging from their spai^ding eyes, and well-formed heads, one cannot but 
feel, with Bishop Patteeon, that they are capable of rising very high in the 
scale of civilization and intelligence. In my opening address, I spoke to the 
joong men most plainly and faithfully, of the dangers they would probably 
We to encounter, which might possibly terminate in their falling by the 
luffids of their cruel brethren ; they simply replied, ' This is not news to us ; we 
We already thought of, and talked over aUJthese things ; we are not afraid ; 
we do not care for our bodies, and no person on earth can injure our souls ; if 
we die in the field, we die, if we live, we live ; eahune a nue Jcoi Jesu — ^we leave 
it with Jesus.' 

"The course of instruction at present is qtdte elementary, as the members of 
tlie Institution have hitherto had but few advantages ; but their progress 
during the last six months is veiy satisfactory and encouraging. Sixteen of 
their number are married, and their wives are under the care and tuition of 
Mrs. Macfarlane. They are at present living in thatch cottages neatly built, 
and 80 arranged as to form the three sides of a square, but hope soon to com- 
o^ce erecting lath and plaster houses, and a good substantial stone building 
in wbich to assemble for instruction. 


" I feel pleasure in being able to report favourably of our schools. On Mon- 
eys we have a general school for all — ^men, women, and children — indeed, the 
^ole population, with very few^exceptions, are present on these occajsions ; 
but I am afraid the noise is greater than the progress. Our day schools are 
^ell attended by the young, and to these we chiefly and anxiously look j they 
*w generally eager to acquire knowledge, and show a decided preference for 
lessons on Scripture history. Many young men, and even boys of fourteen, 
and sixteen years of age, are in our seekers' classes, and a number of the 
former have joined the Church during the past year. 

'* Our Churches are also in a hopeful condition, increasing in number, and I 
trost also in piety. In my own district there are 439 Church-members, 268 
seekers, and 19 proposed for Church-fellowship. 


**Two of my out-stations, and two others, we have joined together, to form 
a central district, which we visit alternately. This district would yield an 



absBidaat haryeet to a third miBUonar7 on thia idaad, aad there can be no 
doubt that ihe extent of the island, the condition of the nativea, and the fierce 
triala and teiaptati<»i8 to which the7 ar6 exposed, render their cfaumB strong 
and pressing for a third miasionary — mj time now being too foflj oocnpied 
with the students, ihsA I am unable to paj frequent yiaits to out-stations as 
before. The rendezrous of this district is the station of the late Pao ; there is 
a fine stone house standing there, waiting the arriral of a miaaionaiy, a 
aubstantial neat stone chapel, one of the best on the island, and a population 
of about two thousand at least; it is, unquestionably, the finest station on ihe 
iflkmd ; bat there are so many islands around us wholly giren np to idolatry, 
that the petitions of these people, though long and loud, for a third missionary, 
are<M>mpletely lost in the horrid yeQs and heart-rending cries of ihe thousands 
shrouded in the thidcest darimeas, and bearing ihe most intolerable burdens, 
for whom there is no hope but in the Gospd of Qod*a beloyed Son. Yet, * how 
diaU they hear without a preacher ?'*0 sir ! I often think that if tiie friends of 
ICissicmB could but witness the scenes and hear the sounds which we see and 
hear, it would speedily m^t their hearts, and empty their purses, on behalf of 
Missions. The most aocomplicdied orafcor, and the most gn^hic writer, hare 
equally failed to d^nct the deplorable conditian of the faeatiien : they are an 
iBdeaciibable human wreck, calling forth profound commiseration and 
s tren u oti a , unwearied efflorta for their restoration.

Alihovoh it is nearly eight years since Isaia Pafehia left our shores to 
return to his island home, we arc persuaded that he still lives in the memory 
and affection of multitudes, who will be glad to read the following brief but 
satisiactory letter, recently received by his father in Christ, the Rev. William 
Gill, of Woolwich. It is truly delightful to find that his visit to this 
country, which was attended with many and great advantages, has not, as in 
some instances, been productive of corresponding evils ; but that he has con- 
tinued to labour with modesty, diligenoe, and perseverance, in the service of 
the Saviour. We leam from other sources ihat the amiable and consistent 
character of our young friend has tended to confirm and to commend his 
Christian teaching. 

We have, in the case of Isaia, a striking o^nfirmation of the prmnise : — 
" Instead of thy fothers shall be thy children." He now fills ihe station 
formerly occupied by his friend Mk. Gill, at Aboeanoi, and guides and 
instructs his countrymen in the way of truth. Isaia also tells us, in the 
subjoined letter, that his venerable Either Fafshia is still Irring ; and few of 
our readers will need to be informed that this good m^, moro than forty 
yean since, was honoured to introduce the gospel to llA]iaT0K«A9cEe& a dark

land, inhabited by cruel men. But, amidst all the perils which awaited him, 
he swam £x>m the vessel to the shore, not counting his life dear to him, so 
that be might make known to the imtutofred and degraded people the glorious 
tidings of redeeming love. Great has been his reward 1 The entire population 
has long since unbraced Christianity, and more than one*third of the adults 
aie approved members of the Church of Christ. Great also must be the joy 
of thifl aged veteran in beholding his son labouring in the same blessed cause, 
and gathering like fruits unto eternal life. 


" Arorangi, Barotonga, Auguet 17, 1863. 

" Mt bbab Mb. and Mbs. Gill, — Blessmg on you both from God by 
Jesos the Messiah. Tour letter of last year has reached me, and in reading 
it I am made glad. 

" I am still at Arorangi — ^your station — doing the work of the Gospel. I 
dwell in your house, and cease not to pray that God would prosper our work. 

" The Church here is in peace, and is growing in fruitfulness ; some few 
members have gone back, but the large portion remain steadfast, and hold 
fast to the Gospel of Christ. I am now the only teacher here ; my former 
help-mate, Rupe, is gone to Atiu, and, I am glad to say, no trouble has grown 
up since my settlement here. 

** Hie people are now repairing our chapel ; they are putting on an entire 
new roof, and it will take some six months before the work is complete. 

" I have mentioned to Tinomana, the chief, the desire of those merchants in 
England who wish to come here, and who ask if we woidd trade with them. 
Bodi Tinomana and the people are willii^ they should come as merchants. 
They may trade in coffee, cotton, oil, and in fruits ; but they will not be allowed 
to purchase land. If any shoidd come, you must see that they are good cha- 
racters, and that they will live in peace among the people. Upon these terms 
we shall be glad to see any who wish to come to us with merchandise. 

** My fpither, Papehia, is stiU alive, so is my mother ; they are both well. 
I must tell you I am truly blessed in my wife. She is a real helpmeet 
for me ; a woman of peace, and faith in the Word of Grod. We have two 
children, a boy and a girl, and we have called them ' WiUiam' and * Eliza- 
beth,* after you and Mrs. Gill ; and now my parents, my thoughts of affection 
are constantly going out towards you, asking how is your health, and whether 
or not you will ever leave England, and come again to us. 

** Many of our people have died since you left ; almost a new generation has 
grown up. Makea, the chiers son, is at study in the Institution ; Tekao, my 
brother, has finished his term of study, and is here waiting his appointment 
to a station. Tuaine is dead. 

** I do not forget my many friends m England — ^blessing on them all. Write 
often to me. In conclusion

"We have already had occasion to express our gratitude to our fiiends in the 
several Australian Colonies for their generous and affectionate reception of 
Dr. TuBNEB and his associates, who sojourned with them for a season on their 
way to the South Pacific ; but, from the following testimony of one of our 
junior friends, the Rev. Joseph King, we cannot deem it superflous to repeat 
the expression of our thankftdness. Our friends in Australia may feel assured 
that their hospitality and affection to the missionary, and their zeal and libe- 
rality in the blessed cause to which his life is consecrated, can in no wise 
lose its reward; and that the Churches of the fatherland gratefully appreciate 
this labour of love, and pray that they may be yet more closely united with 
themselves in extending the blessings of the common salvation, to the 
unevangelized multitudes of the South Pacific. 

"Sydney, New South Wales, September 21, 1863. 

" My deab Sib, — ^Tou have, of course, already heard of our arrival in 
Austiralia. After a very pleasant passage of eighty -two days, from, Plymouth, 
we anchored at Melbourne on the 6th of June. 

" "We have met with warm receptions from the Churches in Australia. We 
have been heartily welcomed, and hospitably entertained, wherever we have 
gone. Many of the Churches have held tea-meetings, to welcome us, and 
wish us Qod speed in our work. We were invited to one last week, at Wool- 
lahra, a suburb of Sydney. The building in which it was held was tastefrillj 
decorated with flowers and evergreens. At one end of the church was tke 
motto, * Welcome to God's servants,' and at the other, * Go, and may God 
prosper you.' We have been greatly encouraged and cheered by these 
various expressions of sympathy. 

** We have held missionary services and meetings in nearly all the principal 
towns of Australia and Tasmania. We have preached seventy-one missionary 
sermons, addressed twenty-four missionary meetings, besides twelve or fourteen 
gatherings of Sabbath school children. For the first ten weeks we made 
Melbourne our head-quarters ; in South Australia — ^Adelaide ; and in Tas- 
mania — Hobart Town and Launceston. Our general meeting at Melbourne, 
over which Sir Henry Barkley, the Governor of Victoria, presided, was a 
very enthusiastic meeting. Dr. Turner presented His Excellency with a 
copy of the Samoan Bible. Increased interest has been excited in our 
meetings by the accounts of the nefarious kidnapping which has been 
going on in the islands. The colonies have been very prompt in expressing 
their indignation at the dastardly traffic, and in petitioning the English 
Government to interfere, and demand reparation from the Peruvians. 

" While in Adelaide, Dr. Turner and I addressed on the Sabbath afternoon 
between twelve and fourteen hundred children, from different schools. At 
the close of the meeting, which consisted almost exclusively of children, 
£13 were received ; this was quite independent of their usual weekly sub- 

" Believe me, my dear sir, 

" "Very truly yours, ' 

" Rev. a. Tidman, D.D." -Dgt zed^^, Joseph Kino.

Bt the last Mauritius mail we received letters from the capital from the Eet. 
WnjJAH Ellis^ and several of our missionary Brethren. These communica- 
iions, though extended, we are sure will be read by our friends with the 
deepest interest They refer not only to direct missionary work in Aittaka- 
KAsrvo, but also in remote districts; while they contain important representa- 
tions of collateral branches of missionary labour in the schools, by the press, &c. 

During the last three months intense interest has been felt by the report (for 
it was more than a rumour), that KAT)AifA 11. was still alive, and that he 
would be shortly restored to the throne, or seeking a refuge out of the island. 
The former representation was made repeatedly and very extensively in 
Madagascar, both in the capital and in the country ; and so deep was the 
impression, that, either from interested motives or strange credulity, multitudes 
among the tribes remote from the capital rose up in arms^ with the professed 
object of restoring the Xing to his throne. Our missionaries, without excep- 
tion, for several months utterly discredited this report, and, for the greater 
part, they entertained the same convictions throughout. Others, however, 
were at length induced to believe that the King was still alive, and parties, in 
whose truthfulness and integrity they had unlimited confidence, assured them 
that they were holding frequent intercourse with the deposed monarch, and 
that he might be expected in the capital within a few days. We can only 
conjecture the motives by which these Mse witnesses were instigated, as we 
have no explanation given in the letters of our correspondents. But, as will be 
seen from the following statement of our venerable friend the Rev* "William 
£ixi8, the gross fabrication was ultimately exploded, and all parties con- 
earred in the full assurance that the Sing's life was actually sacrificed at the 
time of the revolution in May last. 

" I have written to you twice," observes Mr. E., "respecting the rumour 
of the late Badaka, who was first reported to be alive, and subsequently to 
be coming to the capital. I am deeply grieved that I mentioned this 

VOL. xxvm. — 1864. c 


subject ; but the King's return was so confidently and persistently affirmed 
by parties in circumstances to know, and with so many matters of detail, 
that, though I long, even for months, refused it credence, I could not resist 
the evidence any longer, and cemmunicated the report of las being alive to 
you, and more recently of his eicpected return to the capital. I hate kovt 


From the following communications it will be seen that the spirit and 
tendency of the present Government, as well as the personal views of the 
Queen, are not in favour of Christianity. N'evertheless, there has been no 
act of hostility to the ITative Christians; and the principles of the new con- 
stitution, if so it may be designated, secure full religious freedom to all classes 
of the people. The increasing numbers and influence of the Christians afford 
also a strong groimd for hope that the sovereign and her Government will 
respect these principles of religious freedcmi, if not from conviction, yet from 
policy ; and we trust that, by the progress of the Mission and the increase of 
converts, this groxmd of hope may continue to be strengthened and enlarged. 

The chief anxiety felt by the missionaries, and probably by the Native 
Government, arises from the ill-judged and unconstitutional treaty made by 
the late King with M. Lambert, which the present Government reftise to 
ratify, and, indeed, which they could not venture to adopt without provoking 
the universal hostility of the people. Wc trust that, under the gracious pro- 
vidence of God, the imperial Government of Prance may be led to take just 
views of the case, and be restramed from employing armed force to obtain 
possession of any portion of the Madagascar territory — a proceeding which 
could not fail to bring about anarchy, bloodshed, and desolation. 

" Antanaaiarivo, October 9th, 18&^ 
" My DBAS Frienj>, — I am deairoiis, if poaaible, to give the Directoro, as 
briefly as I can, my own views as to the course of action which it is best to 
pursue, as these views are shared, I believe, by all the Brethren with whom I 
have thus far been associated. 


" There are positions more or less remote from the capital, especially in 
the South, which we could occupy as soon as the Brethren are qualified to 
take part in our work; but I see no reason to deviate from the course of action 
which we have hitherto followed— viz., to occupy the chief positions in the 
oi^pital, establish ourselves on as solid a basis as possible in those positioziSt 
render our educational establLahment aaid printing department as eflfasicM t 
as possible, and then gradually extend our operations to the provinces^ as 
Divine Providence may indicate, sending forth in ihe meantmie, in every 
promising direction, Native labourers as pioneers before a better qualified 
evangelistic agency which we hope will follow. The most important element 
in such efficient occupancy of the capital is the scriptural organization 
and working of our City Churches ; and this, experience shows most clearly, 

POE FEBRUARY, 1864. 27 

cnmoi be done by Natire pastors alone; and at present it seems only 
Hkeby to be accomplished by the association of a Enropean Missionary 
with Natrre Ohuroh officers, i^ Enropean presiding, assisted by co-pastors, 
deaoc»iB, and evangelists or preachers. Thoti^ we are often surprised 
and delighted with the simple scriptoral course which the Native preachers 
p^xrsue, we are as often sarprised and grieved at the want of clear peroepticm 
of what to ns is equally pl^n, and the want of principle or moral courage 
to carry it out if percdved. In many difficult cases arising out of old 
habits of social life, concubinage, change of wives, and questions in which 
those above them are concerned, it seems impossible for them to act consist- 
ently if left to themselves. The despotism under which they have lived has 
been so absolute, i^e favour and approval of the great in every movement is 
eonBidered so necessary and beneficial, and their disapproval is deemed so 
calamitous, that, if left to Native pastors, our churches would, we fear, soon 
come to be conducted on worldly principles. We are sometimes startled 
to see men who would have drunk the poison or knelt before the spear 
rather than promise not to read the Scriptures or pray, hesitate whether 
it is right to pray at any other time than the regularly-observed seasons, 
without first obtaining the approval of the government. And, perhaps, on 
questions of discipline many would, if by themselves, decline to vote, or 
decline to vote according to what they could not doubt was the teaching of 
the New Teotament, if they thought such vote would be displeasing to their 
superiors ; but, associated with one of ourselves, they have less difficulty, and 
they know it will be considered that in their church proceedings they only 
follow where wje lead. On these and other grounds we feel that if we are to 
retain the capital in the interest of Scriptural Protestant faith, the chief city 
churches must, for a season, have our special care. We cannot act effectively 
upon the provinces without preserving the capital, but with that we can 
operate with vastly augmented effect. We can do a great deal of good besides 
freddmg in the churches, but we must not neglect them. European preaching, 
as well am ruling, must also, in regard to its subject-matter, impressiveness, 
Ac^ rsise the Native preaching. It will be loaig before the best European 
preachers will, if ever, equal the Natives in the command of the Malagasy 
kogoage; but, as the understaading <^ the people becomes more eoH^tened* 
and their minds more eoEercised on religious subjects, the preaching m:ust be 
of a higher order, and become more impressive, or lose its proper in fl u e nce. 
Public speaking is much practised in Madagascar, and oratory sometimes 
exercises great power over large multitudes; and even now among the 
Ohristians the largest congregations are gathered where the ministers are the 
best preachers. These are some of the grounds why we think our brethren 
ean at present best serve ike cause of Christ in Madagascar by taking charge, 
in conjunction with Native pastors, of two important churches in the capitcd, 
one of which is formed, and the other will be as soon as the building for its 
wor^p is completed. 

nrcBEAsx OP converts. 
**In referenee to our great work — ^the diff^on of the Gospel for bringing 
Mali to Christ — everything among the respectable classes of the community 
in the city and sorroonding villages is most encouraging. It never was more 

c 2 


80 since my arrival. Recent changes for a very short time interfered with 
the regularity of attendance on our public services ; but there have been for 
some time past regpilar and apparently maturely considered accessions to our 
numbers from among the unbelievers and the heathen. The personal cha.- 
racters of the sovereign and the chief minister are not unexceptionable; but 
the former, though openly and uniformly patronizing the idols, and regu- 
lating almost every movement of her life by the directions of the Diviners, has 
encouraged, but never hindered, attendance on religious worship and instruc- 
tion to any of her people who are Christians. The latter, and the members 
of his family in the government, have steadily contended for the continuance 
of perfect religious liberty. We therefore see no impediment to the continued 
spread of the Gospel from this source, nor from anything among the people, 
more than is to be found in every community in a corresponding social and 
religious condition. 



" I feel assured that the Directors will take means to be correctly informed 
of the probable issue of any conference or agreement that may take place 
between the French and English governments in referenced to Madagascar ; 
and that, whatever our government may consent to, they will secure the pro- 
tection on the part of the French of the persons and property of the mission- 
aries, as well as other English subjects in Madagascar. Under this assurance 
I believe we should all deem it our duty to continue with, if possible, increased 
effort our great work, even to the building of Memorial Churches ; but, as 
Mr. Sibree has not arrived, and you have suspended these operations, all is 
kept in abeyance till we receive farther communications frt>m the Directors. 


" My name may possibly be brought forward in connection with the pro- 
ceedings of the French, as having counselled the course which the Hovas have 
taken in refusing the claims of M. Lambert ; for I have heard that some of the 
French officers have said that they think I am even employed by the English 
government to oppose their treaty. I need not say that this is utterly untrue. 
I do not at present know exactly what the so called concessions include. I was 
present, at the King's request, when the document was read, before being signed; 
but considering that it was a sort of private transaction between Badama 
and M. Lambert, a transaction about which I could have nothing to say, I did 
not attend to its contents, and I have never since, though often asked, given 
an opinion, but always said they must consider about that themselvee; 
excepting on one occasion, when the King asked my opinion about the coinage, 
I said that all sovereigns, so far as I knew, kept the coinage of the countries 
over which they ruled in their own hands. In regard to the treaty with the 
emperor, I do not recollect the terms of that treaty ; and on one occasion, when 
strongly pressed for my opinion, said, * If there is nothing very objectionable 
in that treaty, I would suggest to you the desirableness of your adopting it 
at once as it is ; but, if there is anything very objectionable, ask if it can be 
changed.' I am clear of having said that much, when pressed for an opinion, 
but have never said more, and generally have declined giving any opinion, on 

FOB FEBRUARY, 1864. 29 

the grotmd that I had nothing to eay on any arrangements between them and 
the French. 


" The Brethren will no donbt inform you of the progress of the gospel in 
their several spheres of labour, which I am thankful to say is in all encouraging, 
certainly as much as at any former period of the Mission. Tou are aware that 
besides the Central Training School, under the care of Mr. Stagg, there are 
schools in connection with most of the principal chapels. Three of these at 
the present time contain 184 scholars, while between 140 and 150 receive 
instruction in the Central School. "We could multiply schools in the villages 
if we had teachers, and are greatly in want of a thoroughly good, industrious 
schoolmistress. There are three Sisters of Charity here, who teach well ; and 
girls of high family go to them who would come to us, if we had a European 
mistress. We are so sensible of the claims of education, that we often wish 
the friends would add to our present staff a good schoolmaster and mistress. 
We could find as many additional pupils as they could teach, if no interruption 
to the present current of feeling in favour of education among the people 
should occur. , 


"We are greatly pleased with the present of books, *The Scriptures 
Analysed/ sent by Mr. P. D. Hardy, of Dublin, and have resolved to translate 
and print it as soon as possible, for the use of our native pastors and evan- 
gelists ; and, at our last committee meeting but one, 1 was requested to ask you 
to thank Mr. Hardy for the very valuable present, and to obtain, if practicable, 
500 or 1000 copies of the map to bind up with our Malagasy edition. 

" The almanacks have safely arrived, and we are preparing to publish one in 
Malagasy by the beginning of 1864. We wish very much that the Religious 
Tract Society would kindly make us a grant of some of their casts, illustrative 
of religious and educational books. They would not only render our books 
increasingly attractive, but prove valuable mediums of instruction to the minds 
of the Malagasy. 

" The church at Amparibe was re-opened the Sunday before last, when sixty 
were added to its fellowship. Pray that the Holy Spirit may render membership 
with the visible church on earth, the sign of spiritual fellowship with the 
church of the first-bom, whose names are written in heaven.

The following letter of the Rev. Robebt Toy gives the result of a year's 
experience of missionary life in Madagascar. It supplies, on the whole, a 
cheering and hopefiil report of what had been already effected by the Divine 
blessing on the labours of our Brethren, notwithstanding the unlooked-for 
changes and painful disappointments with which, during that short period, 
the Mission had been visited. The writer fully concurs with Mr. Ellis in 

30 Ksaeio^AXY maoazinb 

iiie immediate urgency of all practicable measoree A)r consolidating the 
churches in the capital and its vicinity, inasmuch as the influence of the 
capital upon the whole island, whether for good or evil, is most powerfiil 
and decisive. In these views the Directors thoroughly concur, and they 
trust that, for the present, the strength and influence of the entire missionaiy 
body will be concentrated on this important object. 


"Antananarivo, Oct. 9, 1863. 
" Deab Sie, — Since writing last, the country has quietly settled down to 
order. For some time after the revolution there was, as might be expected, 
a great deal of excitement and uneasiness, and at one time a counter-revo- 
lution seemed imminent. A report that the King was only partially strangled, 
and had afterwards recovered, gained considerable credit, not only among 
the Hovas, but also among the neighbouring tribes, and several risings took 
place in consequence. All these, however, by the active and stringent mea- 
sures of the government, have been wholly put down, and the whole of the 
tribes have returned to their aUegiance. Now, however, that peace is fhlly 
restored among the natives themselves, 'a new danger is threatening them 
ftom. without. The French, on account of the refusal of the present govern- 
ment to acknowledge the Lambert Treaty, are — if report be true — determined, 
it would appear, to make a ftesh effort to obtain possession of the country. 
Under these circumstances, and independently of the uncertainty which still 
exists as to the ultimate intentions of the present sovereign respecting the 
liberty now extended to the Christians, it seems to me tha^t it would be most 
unwise to hasten the erection of the proposed * Memorial Churches.' My own 
feelSng is, that only one should be built for the present. By the time this is 
completed, you will be in a far better position than is now possible for 
deciding what future course to adopt. 


'^ So fkr the new government, though essentially heathen, has offered no 
obstacles to the spread of Christianity. We can, however, scarcely believe 
that the Queen is very favourable to the progress which it continues to make. 
She seems to be of a mild and humane disposition, but thoroughly super- 
stitious, and a Arm believer in all the beliefs and customs of her ancestors. 
The Sikidy and the Diviners are always at hand, and nothing of importance 
is ever transacted without their being previously consulted. Her favourite 
idol is kept in the palace whilst she is there herself, and accompanies' her 
when she goes out. Every important public act is performed either on a 
Thursday or Sunday, the only two lucky days in the week; and, as the 
Diviners have to choose which of the two is the more fortunate, it not unfre- 
quently happens that the lot falls upon the Sunday. Her coronation took 
place on the Sunday, and occupied nearly the whole day. On the return of the 
soldiers and officers from the war against some of the tribes who had revolted, 
though it took place on the Friday, they were not permitted to enter the town 
till the Sunday : and occasionally some of the officers are prevented from 
att^iding at the different churches on account of a summons to attend an 

FOR VEBBXJAB.Y, 1864* 31 

important kabary, designedly appointed for tliat day. Beyond this, however, 
I am not aware of any restriction having been imposed upon any of the 
Chiistiaxia since her accession to tlie throne, and there is little room for doubt 
but that the hi^h ofiBlcers eiyoy more liberty of conscience than during the 
latter part of the late King's reign. 



" Am nTTg the different churches in the town, considerable progress has been 
made since the date oi my last letter. The average attendance is, perhaps, 
mvch ahont the same, certainly not less, while the number of candidates for 
Chnrdi-feQowship has continued steadily to increase. Thechapds all continue 
to be w^ attended, and some are over-crowded. The country churches, how- 
erer, have sttfTered severely in consequence of the alarm caused by the late 
re v o l u tion ; but they are, for the most part, beginning to show signs of im- 
provement. I have now six of ^ose churches under my supervision. Hiese 
arc scattered alxmt in the villages south of Antananarivo. One is a new place, 
which we opened a fortnight ago. There was jjrcviously a flourishing congre- 
gation, but it -was scattered during the persecution, and the owner of the 
chapdl pat to death. All these are supplied with preachers from the same or 
ndghbouring villages, aided by men from my congregation at Ambohipotsy, 
some of whom I send out regularly every Sunday. I also endeavour to vigdt 
one of Ihem every fortnight or three weeks, taking them in rotation. I hope 
also to add, in a short time, two additional churches in villages which are 
now utterly destitute, although several Christians are living in the neighbour- 
hood. I am anxious to get schools established in most of these places, but 
can do nothing at present for want of teachers. 

** Biecently some natives from Ambohimanga have been here on g^emment 
business, who state that, both at that town and also in the neighbouring ones, 
there are several Christians who are greatly in want of instruction, and would 
be glad if a European could pay them a visit. This is not the Ambohimanga 
of the ancient capital. As this is in the same direction as the district I have 
engaged to work,* I have thought it would be advisable to undertake the 
journey next autumn, and try and spend a few weeks in getting information 

respecting them, and in giving them all the instruction in my power. 


^ In aceordanoe with a resolution passed at our first committee meeting, I 
now send you a brief summary of our proceedings during the six months just 
elapsed. During this time we have met six times, and have appointed to be 
published by Mr. Parrett 1200 lesson sheets ; 275 of a similar size, containing 
suitable texts of Scripture, and 500 containing the Ten Commandments ; 1000 
children's catechisms, the same that had been published by the former mis- 
sionaries ; 500 Russell's Catechisms in 16nio ; also a small work recently sent 
from England, entitled *The Scriptures Analysed,' when the ministerial 
D r ethi 'e a . have translated it ; and an English Malagasy Almanack for 1864, 
coftaining, beside the calendar in the usual form, a brief chronological histozy 
of Maclagaflcar {rom. its disooveiry, including the arrival of the first mission- 
aiieSs the introduction of a written language, and the establishment of a 


printing-press — ^notices of the different officers of the government — ^the geo- 
graphical divisions of the country into districts and provinces — ^the names of 
the different ports imd their present governors— the principal markets — com- 
merce and population — the season for sowing and planting ont the rice, and 
other information likely to be serviceable to the natives. One special meetings 
has been held to consider the advisability of establishing a general conference 
of the ministers and representatives of the different churches in and around 
Antananarivo, to be held at stated periods. It was, however, eventually 
decided that the proper time for the successM carrying out of such a scheme 
had not yet arrived, and that all that it was at present advisable to attempt 
was a monthly united missionary prayer meeting, to be held in rotation at 
the different churches in the town, and presided over by one of the mission- 
aries. Three of these meetings have now been held, all of which have been 
crowded to excess. At this same meeting a paper was read by Mr. Stagg, 
entitled " Suggestions respecting the Working of the Missionary School and 
the Education of Teachers," which was finally adopted. A copy of this paper 
he has probably already forwarded to you. The other business transacted by 
the committee has had reference to the settling of our accounts with the 
Society through Mr. Ellis ; the discussion of the question regarding concu- 
binage among the native converts, of which nothing has yet been decided ; 
the appointment of Dr. Davidson to go to Tamatave to meet the new mis- 
sionary Brethren; the places to be occupied by them on their arrival, and a 
resolution expressing our gratification at the safe arrival of Mr. Cameron. It 
was abo decided that no catechisms be given away at the expense of the 
Society, but that any member of the committee wishing some for distribution^ 
be supplied at half the appointed price.

Although, as already intimated, our missionaries regard the capital and 
its environs as having the first claim upon their zeal and assiduity, they are 
glad to embrace any practicable opportunity of examining the state of the 
people in remote districts, and o^ doing what they can to promote their 
Christian order and edification. The letter of the Rev. "W. E. Cousins gives 
an interesting picture of society in Yonezongo, and especially of the number 
of Native Christians and the state of the Churches. The visit of Mr. C. was 
that of the first European missionary who, since the days of persecution, had 
journeyed to that distant part of the island, and the Native Christians whom 
he found there were those who had learnt the faith of Christ through the 
lips of Evangelists who had cither fled thither for refuge, or who had been 
doomed to slavery by the persecuting Government of Queen Ranavalona. 
It is gratifying thus to find that their faith in Christ was dearer to them

either than their liberty or eheir lives, and that they are now enjoying peace 
and freedom in connection with their Christian principles and profession. 

" Amparib^, Antananarivo, Sept. 14, 1863. 
" Deab Db. Tidman, — ^Tonr letter of July 27th has just come to hand. As 
you reqaest some farther particulars as to my missionary work since my last, 
I will take this opportunity of writing. For eleven weeks I have had no 
chapel to preach in. Our old one was so wretched, and so much inclined to 
fell of itscdf, that the congregation determined to pull it down, buy the ground, 
and build a more substantial edifice. For eleven Sundays, therefore, I have 
been a wanderer, and have had an opportunity of seeing the state of some of 
the Tillage churches. On the whole, there is much to encourage us ; but the 
churches out of town cannot, I think, be considered in a very flourishing state. 
There is quiet and steady perseverance, and we may hope to see much better 
things. 1 will not enter into details as to all the congregations 1 have been 
enabled to visit, but will content myself by giving some account of what I 
consider the most important visit — ^viz., that to Yonezongo. 


" Vonezongo is, as you are most likely aware, the most westerly of the six 
districts into which Imerina is divided. Between it and AvaraddLno, in which 
the capital is situated, is the district of Marovitana; and beyond it, to the 
west, is a wilderness, leading on to the Sakalava coxmtry. In the reign of 
Eadama I. schools were established, and the seeds of Christian truth scattered 
hy oar hononred predecessors. The seed sown has sprung up. Although the 
persecution reached to Yonezongo, as it did also to places much further away, 
and although Yonezongo had its share of martyrs, still those who loved Gk>d's 
Word must have had better opportunities of reading and teaching it, than the 
inhabitants of Antananarivo and its immediate vicinity. I had determined 
on Tisiting this place before the death of Badama. The state of affairs con- 
sequent upon that sad event, and the unsettled state of the country to the 
^est, led me to delay for a time. When I thought the country was sufficiently 
quiet, I fdlfilled my determination, much to my own pleasure, and 1 trust to 
the profit of those I visited. 


" On Friday, Sept. 4th, I started. Of course the mode of travelling was in 
the palanq[uin — ^the only one practicable to those who do not ride. I was 
disappointed in not reaching the end of my journey on Friday. I slept in a 
small village situated in the district of Marovatana. I was reminded of my 
jonmey from Tamatave last year. The house in which I stayed was very 
primitive — no European influences had disturbed its arrangements. The 
walls and roof were black with soot. When cooking commenced, we had the 
luxury of smoke ; and when I tried to sleep, I was disturbed by the pigs and 
geese in the south-east comer of the house. The floor was so hard, and the 
fleas 80 numerous, that I found no difficulty in waking before sunrise. We 
renewed our journey, and reached Fihaonana about nine o'clock. My recep- 
^ was very gratifying. After breakfast, in the house chosen for my 
Accommodation — a great improvement on the one above mentioned — ^I was 

c 3 


Ibrmally welcomed by the head of the congregatioiiB already present. The 
chief speaker was Bazaka — a man who, when sent by the Prince Bakoto to 
see who the French Missionaries on the west coast were, and what they were 
doing — ^was captured by some Sakalava, by them sold to the French, and by 
the latter taken to the Malagasy establishment at Bonrbon. He and his five 
companions proved too firm Protestants to be captivated by Bomish cere- 
momes, and after a time found their way back to their native land. His 
remarks somewhat startled me, for he said, ' Ton, Yazaha, are partial ; you 
think of what vnH be for the good of Antananarivo, but yon forget us.* I 
told them to take my visit as an assurance that we did not forget them, and 
reminded them that even if we had visited them earlier we could not have 
held profitable intercourse. * Well,' he said, * it is our earnest desire to be 
taught, which makes us speak so. During the persecution many of us shed 
tears in secret, wishing for some friend from over the seas ; and now we w?e 
better off than we were then, for we can go into Antananarivo if there is any- 
thing very difficult we want advice about.' I assured him we would think of 
them, and do what we coidd to get them taught. For the rest of the daj, 
small groups of friends from distant villages came in to shake hands ; and 
about two or three we had a meeting for conversation, and asking or answering 
questions. Many were the questions they put to me — some about texts which 
perplexed them, and some about what should be done in regard to admission 
of church members, discipline, &c. After sunset we had another such meeting. 


*' Sunday, I had a walk in the cool of the morning before the services, which. 
begasi about eight. The ordinary house of meeting was too small, so we 
removed to a larger one in a village about a mile away. I think nearly 250 
must have been preeeat at our services, which, with a break of two hours in 
the middle of the day, lasted till four. About one hundred joined in com- 
memorating the dying love of Him who gave his life a ransom for many. It 
was a happy day for us alL The preaching was solid, dear, and veiy practical. 
I>uring the mid-day interval, those who were stiQ unable to read remained to 
be taught. Sunday evening I had another meting for conversation and 
questions. Monday morning, before I was dressed, I had more questions, 
and tin night I was kept talking. They excused themselves by saying they 
were * thirsty.* Monday evening we had a service for preaching. 


" My intercourse with the people has left a {^easing impression on my mind. 
There is a steadiness and caution, together with an earnestness and knowledge 
of God's Word, which is very encouraging. Many of the questions asked 
showed pleasing signs of intelligence. I was asked, * Why, if Christ and the 
Holy Spirit are both God, can sin against Christ be more easily forgiven tiban 
sin against the Holy Ghost P* * K the Samaritans were not Jews, how could 
the woman of John iv. say, " Our father Jaoob ?" ' Others showed want of 
information, as this, * Were the distinctions between French and English tibe 
same in the days c^ the prophets as they are now P' They have one difficult 
ca^e of church discipline. A man, who has long been a professed Christian, 
and who has been very diligent in visiting the sick, caring for the poor, and 

FOE PEBRUAJRY, 1864. 35 

other CQhiisidaii daties, has takexL two wives, in addition to his first. ' We 
lure followed the direction of Ciuiftt,' said the pastor, who told me. ' We 
apoke to him priyately ; then two or three went to him ; after that we admo- 
lUBhed him hefore the oongregatLon — ^what remains for us but to separate 
from hijfi. ?' The case is rendered more difficfolt by the &ct that the wives 
knre become Christians, and are desirous of being admitted into church pri* 
Tifeges. They hare joined in seeking to induce the maa to ohoose one, and 
aDow the remaining two to separate. I advised them to suspend the man for 
a seaaoii — ^hoping and praying that he may be led to change his course. 


•• On Tuesday morning, at five, I left Fihaonana, and reached home about 
fiyur, having had eleven hours of the sun. I gathered some particulars as to 
the inmib«r of Christians in the district of Yonezongo, which are suflici^it to 
make ns anxious to do something fbr them. The population is not great, and 
very scattered. The number of Christians is rather more than 600. fHiere 
afe three leading churches, in connection with which Baptism and the Lord's 
Siqiper ajre administered. The smaller churches join with these once a month. 
The nnmber of Church members ii 122 ; and of those who are baptized, but 
slall not loll members, 18. Our predecessors, under Radama's patr<mage» 
started achools at six villages; at five of which there are still congregations. 
Mr. Griffiths gave six Bibles to different people in the district. Three still 
roaain, and God has indeed blessed them. We thus epter into other men's 
laJboors, and reap where we never sowed. May Grod still spare us to gather 
in the harvest, and sow fresh seed. My Church at Amparibe had hee^ scat- 
tered fbr a timd, but I hope we shall continue to enjoy prosperity.

Directors with the special view tcv estahhsh schools, traia native masters, 
tod, in every other praeticablfi vay, extend education among the juvenile

a suitable building has been completed, and that he has commenced his work 
with tax encouraging number of pupils. We trust also that his exertions to 
raise up and qualify a goodly band of native schoolmasters will be successftil. 
Nothing short of this will meet the necessities of the case, or give any sub- 
stantial promise of the extension of the native schools. 

From the foregoing communications we are glad also to learn that the

" Antananariyo, Oct. 4tli, 1863. 

** Ret. and deab Sir, — I have long desired to write ftdly to you respect- 
ing our edncational operations, but, owing to circumstances over which I had 
no control, I have not, till within the past two or three months, been able 
ftdly to commence the work allotted to me. Previous to the erection of the 
missionary school, I did what I could to ftirther the cause of education by- 
visiting some of the existing schools, and encouraging as far as possible the 
native teachers in their pure labour of love. 

" I will now give you such an outline of present operations as may, I trust, be 
alike interesting and satisfactory to the Directors and to those numerous friends 
who desire the progress and spread of education here. Although we have but 
just commenced, there is much to encourage us, and, with God*s blessing on 
our labours, and the prayers of friends at home, we have every hope that the 
light of Divine knowledge will yet spread far and wide even amongst the 
present generation. 


" Acting in accordance with the wish of the Directors, it has been our aim 
to select a few young men of Christian character. These are now under in- 
struction, and I have every hope that within nine months they will be ready 
to go to such village stations as may be deemed desirable. Teachers are 
wanted, both here at the capital and in every town where congregations 
assemble. When our missionary Brethren visit the out districts, the usual 
cry of the people is * Send us teachers for otir children, and come often to us, 
or, still better, come altogether, then our congregations would soon increase.' 
Truly the harvest is ready. Soon after Mr.EUis's arrival, he succeeded in obtain- 
ing possession of part of the land occupied previously by Mr. Griffiths, whose 
name will ever live in the aflfectionate memory of all classes of people here. 
Though he has passed away, the fruit of his labour is ever with us. On that 
land we have had erected a missionary school some fifty-five feet by twenty- 
six ; it is a good large room, and will well accommodate 200 children. It is a 
wooden building, and the many friends who have visited it have expressed 
themselves well pleased with it. It is situated in a good part of the capital^ 
and within an easy distance of the houses of the principal inhabitants. 


" Our friends generally expressed themselves as sure that the school would 
soon be ftdl. I feared somewhat, knowing that the Catholics were trying their 
utmost to get all the children, as they could not get the adults; but I son 
happy to say that my fears were groundless, for we have now about 130 
children in daily attendance, and have ali*eady entered 150 names in our book. 
This has been accomplished without any pressure ; we merely announced to 
the congregations that the school wotdd be opened on such a day. "We have 
also in connection with our congregations four other schools in operation. 

" I hope at some ftiture time to be able to send you a ftdl account of the 
internal working of the school, but as we have only recently commenced, I 
cannot say much respecting the progress of the children. I have, however, 
fall confidence that they may be educated to a point quite equal to that 
attained in our ordinary day-schools at home. I find them very obedient and 

POR FEBRTTAEY, 1864. 37 

wining to learn. As earlj as six o'clock in the morning they are waiting in 
the road to be let into school, and when it commences, we have no late comers ; 
and once in the school, they very reluctantly leave it. This eagerness may 
partly die off, but we belieYe that the children, as a whole, are anxious to know 
an that the^^Yazaha, as we are called, are able to teach them. They are never 
tired of asking questions. 

" In reference to the young men I have under training, I am generally satis- 
fied with their progress, but I am not able to do all I would desire, for after 
the work of the school is over, which lasts in the morning for three hours, and 
the same in the afternoon, neither they nor myself are fitted to go through any 
veiy lengthened course of lessons. Still I hope that the real practical know- 
ledge they acquire by working daily in the school, and such lessons and hints 
as I am enabled to give them, wiQ fit them to become useful teachers in the 
niunerous towns and villages which surround us. 

" I have before stated that we have other schools in operation : some of them 
are very weU attended ; these are taught by native teachers, with valuable 
assistance from our ministerial Brethren. I may also state that in connection 
with the Rev. Messrs. Cousin's, Toy's, and Duffos's congregation in the capital 
there are very good Simday-schools. Our Brethren have great hope in the 
fruit that may spring from that good work. It will bind the children to the 
House of the Lord ; and may we not trust and believe that they will be num- 
^red amongst the future pillars of the Church in Madagascar P 

"There is one other matter I would like to touch upon in the working of 
onr schools. "We have made a charge of about fourpence per month for each 
child, but at the same time making a reduction where there are two or three 
^ a family. I have some fears respecting it. The principle is good; we 
iigreed to it in Conunittee, and I wiU do my utmost to carry it out ; but I fear 
the people are not sufficiently prepared for it; and then, we must remember 
the Catholics give all for nothing. I find no trouble in the selling of slates, 
<^P7-books, &c., because they see something tangible for their money. 


"The question often arises in my mind, wiU the work now commenced bo 
^owed to go on P "We believe it will ; from what we see around us, and the 
opinion we may form of the result of past events, we are led to the conclusion 
that protection and permission wiU long be granted to us. The Queen makes 
^0 secret of the fact that she worships the idols. At the same time she gives 
Pcnnission to all her people to worship whom they please. They use this 
^iWty, crowding all our places of worship; and every day increases the 
anmber of those who give themselves to the Lord. I know our ministerial 
Brethren often rgoice as they see the fruit of their labours in ten, twenty, or 
even thirty, who come forward monthly in each chapel to join the Lord's 
P^ple. We have had a time of darkness, hope almost fled, but the Sun of 
^hteousness is in our midst, and the people rejoice. 

" The Prime Minister, who has great power in the country, is friendly with 
^ and I believe thoroughly understands and knows that the progress of 
^^iuistianity will be the only means whereby real advancement may be made 
^ongst the people ; but we must not shut our eyes to the fact that there are 


oiher mai of power wHo are nob friendlj to Christiaiuij. But we will work 
whilst we can; we know that e^rerj increase ia an increaae of strength. 
Alreae^ the Mttle one has become a thotiBancL 


" I don't know whether you have heard of the Baharaha Mangina, or silent 
busineas, as it may be termed. At first it was not generally known ; but the 
fact is that the Prime Minister has married the Queen, or the Queen the 
Prime Minister ; the Prime Minister has two other wives. The marriage with 
the Queen is not liked by many, and it is not thought that it will add to his 
power. He has now a];^>arently unlimited power, and all appear willing to do 
his bidding ; but in a country so fond of plots, it is not likely that the King's 
party have entirely died out. It will take some time before friends at home 
will have entire confidence in the future stability of the present Government; 
and it is only acting wisely ; for, as far as we could judge twelve months ago, 
there was every probability of Eadama'a reign lasting many years. 

" Desiring to be kindly remembered to the Directors, 

" Yery faithfully, I remain, 

" Rev. Dr. Tidman." " Charles T. H. Stagg. 


"Antananarivo, October 9th, 186S. 

** Mt dbab Sib, — ^Yon will be glad to hear that, by the mercy of God, we 
arrived safe and well at the capital on the 7th, after a journey of nine days. 
The roods from Tama(tave to the capital are not only bad, bat the worst that I 
have seen ajiywhere, and for Eoropeans altogether impassable. At our last 
resting-place we were met by our Brethren Duflhs, Cousins, and Parrett, and 
on nearing the capital a number of Christians came to meet us, followed by 
Mr. Stagg, Mrs. Davidson, Mr. EUis, and Mr. Toy. They are all very kind 
to us, and it is quite a pleasure again to have intercourse with Christian friends, 
alter being deprived of it for some timew Mr. EUis has taken a house lor me 
at Ankadibevava. There is a church dose to it which he wishes me to 
take charge of, together with two Native Pastors. From what I can see now, 
it is necessary that all the churches should be presided over by European 
missionaries, at least for a time, until a body of Malagash preadicrs can be 
trained to take the sole charge of them. There is a large fi^ here, and onr 
whole force must be concentrated for a time in the capital, as this is the centre 
from which the other parts may aftanprards be supplied. The church at An- 
kadibevava consists of 120 communicants, and 500 hearers, but there is ro<Hn 
lor more. Let us hope that it will soon be filled. 

" I cannot say much more now. Perhi^ next month, looking round a little 
more, I may be able to give a statement of our doings and prospects; and I 
shall be glad to hear from you, and have fuller instructicms as regards the in- 
tentions of the Directors with respect to Madagascar, and the building of the 
stone churches.

* Ootoi>er2%^ 1862. — ^We this day sailed from He A, and steered our course 
for Fate. On the 24th we cast anchor at snnset off the very interesting Chris- 
tian settlement of that island. Toma, the Rarotongan teacher, came off in his 
canoe, but did not reach the ship till it was quite dark. He and his wife are 
well, and happy in their work. One of the Aneiteum teachers has died during 
the year of brain fever, and Takoma, a Rarotongan teacher, of the malaria 
prevalent on the island. The other Aneiteum teacher is laid by with a bad 
foot, caused l^ treading on a poisoned arrow. We left Makore, a Mangaian 
teacho*, here to assist T<Mna in the work ; so that now there will be three 
teachers. "We appointed also Daniela, lately returned from Santo, to be an 
aaststant-teacher. We learnt that the word of €k>d is making progress among 
the Christian party, but that no heathens have jcaned them ; still they do not 
molest them in religious engagements ; indeed, we found that the heathens 
looked upon them with some degree of awe. In January last, a hurricane de- 
vastated the island ; not a building remained standing. Toma's house and the 
church were swept away. The bread fruit trees were laid low : not a leaf was 
anywhere to be seen ; but, happily, the yams and other roots on which they 
chiefly depended for subsistence, were uninjured. In a short time the Chris- 
tians had pleuty, but the whole mass of heathens, even up to the presait time, 
are suffering from scarcity of food. The cause of the abundance among the 
Christians is twofold : first, they are more industrious ; secondly, they culti- 
vate a variety of foreign vegetables, which come in opportunely when any dis- 
aster be&ls the native crop. The heathens are very superstitious about plant- 
ing any new kind of food, fearing that it will produce disease and death. The 
CSiristians' village has a simple code of laws, which Pomare, their intelligent- 
looking chief, administrates with great vigour, and tSi^'^lsP^satisfaction of all 


parties. At half-past eight p.m. we heard the constables' gong beating, as rn. 
Eastern Polynesia. 

" Saturday, 25th. — ^We went ashore, and were much pleased with the neat 
premises of the teacher. They have a little bamboo church which wiQ hold aboiifc 
a hundred, and which we were informed is well filled every Sabbath. The 
people gave a present of food to the ship, consisting of pigs, pumpkins, yams, 
and taro. The Church-members made their first contribution to the Parent 
Society this year, which consisted of 5*. Qd. in cash, and 280 pounds of arrow- 
root. This is a move in the right direction. A church, only one year in 
existence, and just emerging from heathenism of the grossest type, conmiences 
at once to send contributions to the Missionary Society. Ought not this 
little circumstance put to shame most of our Brethren at home, who have en- 
joyed the accumulated blessings of the Gospel all their lives, and yet never do 
half of what these semi-heathens do for the spread of the Gospel, the blessing 
of which they have scarcely tasted? This contribution was handed over to the 
Presbyterian Brethren of the New Hebrides, as they have undertaken the evan- 
gelization of Fate. "We examined twenty-three candidates for Church-fellow- 
ship, and selected ten (fotir men and six women), for admission to the Church 
on the morrow — Sabbath. Toma, the teacher, has written out a few hymns, 
and has commenced a catechism for the use of the people. ' These attempts 
are doubtless very imperfect, but without European missionaries it is all that 
can be expected. They have no translation of any portion of Scripture, hence 
the Barotongan Bible is used in public service, which the natives, of course, 
cannot understand, except one or two individuals who have learnt a little of 
that language. 

" Sabbath. — We held our usual service on board this morning. In the after- 
noon we went ashore ; Mr. Gill preached in the Barotongan dialect, which 
Toma translated. Mr. Jones baptized the ten natives selected yesterday. 
After further devotional services they received the right hand of fellowship. 
With deep thankfulness we all united in partaking of Uie Lord's Supper. The 
church on Fate now numbers forty-two ; may the grace and strength of Grod 
be with them, that they may remain faithful to the end ! 

"Monday morning. — ^A deputation firom the Church, headed by the chief, came 
off in canoes to reiterate the request for a missionary. They said, * We have, 
on several visits of the " John Williams," been promised a missionary, but 
still he was not forthcoming.' We replied, * We are delighted at your earnest- 
ness to have a servant of Gk)d in your midst, but you must wait patiently, as 
other islands have to do.' * Oh, yes, we may wait,' said some, * but before he 
comes many of us may be dead.' ' But what can we do ? Missionaries are so 
scarce. There are so few young men in the Church of Christ who are willing 
to leave their homes and come out to a barbarous heathen country like yours.' 
On hearing this, the chief, Pomare, at once volunteered to proceed forthwith 
to England, in search of a missionary, feeling assured that if he could lay his 
claim before any one of our young ministerial Brethren, he would not fail to 
secure a pastor at once for his people. We dissuaded him from thinking of 
so long and perilous a journey, and endeavoured to show him that a missionaiy 
would arrive sooner by our writing for one, than by his going personally. 
Some of the party, directing their attention to Mr. Vivian, a young missionary 

FOB FEBRUAKY, 1864. 41 

pTM^eeding to HuaMne, said, ' Why can we not have this missionary to stay 
▼ith us?* * Oil,' we replied, ' he has been appointed to another sphere, and can- 
not stay with you.' * Oh, let us take him by force," said some, * while we have 
the opportunity/ Mr. Jones asked them if it would be proper for a man to 
take a case of goods addressed to a neighbour and appropriate it to his own 
use. ' Oil, no,' they replied, ' that would be a theft, and very wrong.' * Would 
70a, then, be thieves,' he asked, ' by taking this missionary who has been sent 
labelled to another people and another island P' After this they thought no 
more of it, and so Mr. Vivian escaped being tied hand and foot and lowered 
into a canoe. 

"Monday, 27th. — ^About midday we set sail for Apee. As we sailed along the 
coast of Fate, we were amazed at the extent and apparent fertility of the island. 
KumcroTis islands lie off its shores, of considerable extent, which are doubtless 

Early on Tuesday morning we found ourselves sailing through a vast 
Archipelago, all inhabited by heathens and cannibals of the worst class. 


" Oct. 30th (Thursday). — We were off Ambrym, every one on board gazing at 
the active volcano which exists on this island. The column of smoke arising 
therefrom is as black as that of a steamer's chimney, and so immense in 
quantity, that it blackens the whole heavens around, and fills the whole hori- 
wn to leeward, as far as the eye can reach, with heavy masses of thunder-like 
donds. The mountains all around are covered with ashes to such an extent, 
that not a single leaf of vegetation is anywhere to be seen. This volcano is ap- 
parently of later date than the one in Tanna, which is much smaller, and the 
smoke indicates exhaustion of combustible materials, — ^though the eruptions of 
fire are much more frequent, being seen at intervals of only a few minutes, while 
the eruption of fire on Ambrym was only seen once during the night in which we 
lay off that place. "We learnt from the two Ambrym youths, who "had spent 
twelve months at Mar^, in Mrs. Jones's school, and who could speak that lan- 
guage pretty well, that the volcano is very difficult of access, the path veay nar- 
row, with a precipice on either side, and that only a few old people on the island 
had ever visited it. 


" About three o'clock in the afternoon we were off the stK)t fin^m whence the 
two young men, Louis and Brabatmasing, were taken by the * John WHliams,' 
last year. Brabatmasing had been very ill during his irtiay on Mar^, and 
fears were entertained that he would never see his home again. Prayers 
were offered to God on his behalf, that he might be restored to his home, 
lest his death while with us should produce unfavourable impressions 
and feelings on his superstitious countrymen towards the missionaries and 
missionary ship, and thus, perhaps, frustrate our designs and plans for the 
introduction of the Gospel among them. But God most graciously heard om* 
prayers, and it was with feelings of devout thankfulness we prepared to take 
the boys ashore to their friends, safe and in good health. It must be re- 
membered that these two lads were in all probability the first who ever left 
their homes, and after ^6;^ had volunteered to go with Captain "Williams, they 


soon repaited, and wept mncli to return ; however, it was thought adviaaUe 
to keep them to their first ^ogagemeait, which, bj the way, was made axdj by 
signs out on the open sea, and hence not very well understood. Their Mends 
on that occasion paddled after them with the hope of recovering their stolen, 
brethren (as they supposed), but were soon left behind. They would conclude, 
therefore, that the boys were lost and would never return, that the white man 
on the floating islands (sh^Ms) had cooked and eaten them. The lads dressed 
themselves up in a complete suit of English clothing, except shoes and 
stoddngs, and advised us to take them a8h(»« lor the night, leaving their 
few chattels behind till morrow, so that during the night they would com- 
nmnicate our desire to form a Mission station there, and in the morning they 
would come and inform us of the result, and take their things. We pulled in 
to the shore, but kept outside the reef. We found the natives swimming off 
without arms, showing that they had confidence in the white man. However, 
they kept a short distance away, indicating a little mistrust. Mr. Jones now ad- 
vised one of the youths to stand up in the boat, and speak to the men swimming 
about. He spoke in his native tongue, and the surprise indicated on their 
countenances, at being addressed in their own language by strangers, was 
very great ; they all appeared paralyzed with wander. * Tell them who you 
are,' we suggested ; which being done, such a scene followed as our tongues 
would fail to tdl, or pen describe, it must be seen to be realized. The peo- 
ple appeared mad with joy ; they shouted to those on shore, splashed and 
dashed about in the water in all sorts of ways ; now adesperate rush was made 
by those on shore, and the sea all round the boat soon became thick with 
human heads, shouting and rejoicing. StiLL they hardly knew whether they 
might approadb the boat or not, until they were assured by their newly ar- 
rived countrymen that the white num was a very harmless sort of creature. 
Whereupon the boat became filled with those naked barbarians, leaping, 
stamping, jumping, vociferating most deafeningly ; others, unable to find stand- 
ing room in the bcMAt, clung around the gunwales, almost endangering its safety. 
When we offered to shake hands, they looked at our empty extended hands 
most ludicrously,' until informed of our object by their two friends, when we 
had more shaking of the hands than we had anticipated. One man constantly 
waved a branch of the ti with its tuft of leaves, loudly vociferating. We 
learnt that this branch carried in the hand by the natives is a sign of peace- 
fdl intentions (the Ambrym olive branch). They urged us to go ashore, but 
being now late, and the vessel far oS, we put our two friends on a canoe, and 
sent them ashore, while we returned to the ships, filled with joy and grati- 
tude to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who for His beloved 
Son's sake had given us so cheering an interview with these wild savages. 


*' Oct. 31st (Friday). — Brabatmaw'ng came off early in the morning with some 
of his friends, to fetch his things and to look at the wonders to be seen on 
board, among which were the ladies and children — our clothes, our beards 
shaven so closely, and the hand pumps for drinking out of the casks. After 
breakfast we took them ashore in the boat, together with their chest of clothes, 

FOa FEBEUABY, 1864. 48 

turkeys, fowls, a pig, and OBefol plants and seeds, which Mr.. Jones had sap- 
^ied them with, for the benefit and improvement of their people and island. 
O&e of ns searching in the pocket for a handkerchief, found it adorning the 
head of one of the chie& as a head-dress, as if it belonged to him, and no one 
dbe. Th^ all seemed to think thej had a right to take from -qb what they 
ODold find, and did not C(m8ider it in the light of thieving, for they made no 
attempt to oonoeal what they took. 

" When we reached the shore, one of the chiefe, thfnkJTig we hesitated to 
itep on shore, roshed forward and placed in Captain Williams's hand a branch of 
the it, as a pledge of friendship. Mr. Jones jumped npon the back of one of 
the naked fellows, and was carried throngh the surf to the beach. Mr. Gill 
and Captain Williams followed. We were evidently the first white men who 
had landed here, for we were no sooner set down upon our legs tiian the more 
courageous began to examine us from head to foot. Many seemed to think 
that they had achieved a wonderful feat when they had touched the white 
^in of our hands, for they ran away as though they had touched a serpent. 
One expressed great astonishment on discovering that some of us wore four 
skins, viz., coat, waistcoat, shirt, and flannel. They felt the fleshy part of our 
bodies, much as a butcher does a beast when he is selecting one for the 
filaoghter. Our pockets, with a few articles of hardware, as presents, were 
discovered by the feel, and it was perfectly amusing to see the people search 
for the way to them. Mr. Jones soon had his pockets relieved of their con- 
tents; and, having met with such good fortune, they tried Mr. CHIPs, and saved 
ns the trouble of distributing them, aa we had intended. They did not value 
iih-hooka or knivee ; they did not appear to know the use of them. Pieces 
of gay print, or stout iron hoops, were valued most. The iron hoops they 
flborpen down into axes, and, ladied to a hooked stick, use it as an adze. 
This is a great article of commerce between them and the people of Malicalo, 
i^io get it from sandal- wood traders for yams and other vegetables. Mr. 
QSL anmsed them much by showing his watch and allowing them to listen to 
its ticking. Captain Williams prudently took his off and put it Q,way, lest it 
should disappear never to be seen again. But the crowning wonder of all 
was Mr. Jones sitting down imder the shade of a bread-fruit tree, taking off his 
shoe and stocking, and exhibiting his foot. One of the chiefis, finding that we 
liked the milk from the young cocoa-nuts as a beverage, continued to deluge us 
with it until we were*compelled to lay it down on the ground, to show that we 
had had sufficient ; stiU he would break open more nuts, and press them upon 
OS, and appeared to find his greatest pleasure in seeing us drink. 

** Loab had stayed ashore to collect a present of vegetables for the ship, 
hot thinking we were a long time coming, he had gone to the ship in a canoe 
Bearohing lor us. We obtained four young men willing to go with us to Mar§ 
to be instructed, and to return by the 'John Williams' next year. We 
brought two teachers with their wives from the institution at Mar^, with a 
view to settle here and form a Mission station ; but the answer the people 
gave to our inquiry, if it would be agreeable to land them, was, that it was very 
good lor us to wish to locate teachers among them, but they had much rather 
we would not, as they were very much afraid of the clothes we all wore ; and 
thougji we repeated the request, yet we found that their minds were ftdly 


made up. It appears to be the case very generally, that wild savages of Western 
Polynesia entertain very peculiar ideas with respect to clothing when first 
they see it. One great point, however, is gained. We have secured their 
good will, and hav4 two young men there who can tell them many things whicb 
they have seen and heard during their twelve months residence on Mar^ ; and 
perhaps when the * John Williams' visits them in 1868, they may have thrown 
away their fears, and be anxious to obtain teachers. If not, we shall be still 
able to carry away youths for instruction, and they, by mixing with people 
who are somewhat civilized, will, with God*s blessing, remove the suspicions 
still lingering among the natives of this fine island. 


" We steered from this place about mid-day for Malicalo. All round the 
whole horizon we saw large and lofty islands. What an extensive field for 
missionary operations ; for at present all are living in the grossest darkness^ 
and most revolting cruelties. How utterly insignificant do the groups of 
Eastern Polynesia appear in comparison with these ! 

" At the close of the evening we were close up to Malicalo, a splendid island, 
and very large. Here you have harbours, rivers, mountains, and forests. 
During the whole night we were ranning by its side, and yet in the morning we 
had not passed it. It would have been very desirable to have held communica- 
tions with the shore, and to have endeavoured to take away a few youths if 
possible for instruction, but Captain WiUiams was not disposed to wait. 


" Saturday evening, November 1st. — We dropped anchor in a fine hay on 
the southern part of Espiritu Santo. This is the largest, and perhaps most 
fertile, of all the islands of the New Hebrides, and the source of almost all the 
sandal-wood, which is collected by various vessels and sent to China annually. 
The people are, and ever have been, very docile and kind to strangers. There 
is nothing whatever to be feared from them ; a person might go anywhere 
amongst them without danger. European missionaries should settle at once. 
Teachers can do nothing here ; the sickly nature of the climate forbids it. 
Natives are much more susceptible of disease than Englishmen. Two Baxo- 
tongan teachers were landed here last year by Mr. Murray ; both died, and 
one of their wives, within a fortnight of their landing. Mr. Murray last year 
took away three youths from this place, and left them in the care of Mr. Creagh 
for instruction. We now restored them to their homes. They have not 
learned much of the Mar^ language, hence were not of much use as interpreters 
to their relatives and fellow-countrymen. One of them learnt, immediately on 
our arrival, that two of his friends had been killed and eaten the day previous. 

" Sabbath (November 2nd). — Although lying at anchor, we deemed it unad- 
visable to go ashore, for two reasons — first, we could hold no service with the 
natives, not being able to communicate with them ; and, secondly, they being 
accustomed to have Englishmen ashore from sandal-wood vessels, would be 
unable to distinguish between our object and theirs. Hence we thought that 
they would be the more struck with our spending a quiet Sabbath on board, 
and would see that the missionary vessel was different from all others. Many 
of the natives came on board on the Sabbath to barter, but being told by 

FOB FEBRUARY, 1864. 45 

dieir feUow-countrymen that it was our sacred day, they quietly laid their 
commoditieB aside, and stayed on board all day, watching with great interest 
our religions serrices. 

"Monday (November 3rd). — We proceeded ashore to land the three youths, to 
Tiait the graves of our poor teachers, and to present the chief, under whose 
care ihej were placed, and who behaved very kindly to them, with a few 
osefol articles of clothing and hardware. The chief was very anxious to 
assare ns — ^by signs — ^that the teachers did not die for want of food ; he showed 
us that he crammed them with food, but th^ died notwithstanding. We 
observed in the gardens of the late teachers three orange trees, and a pine- 
apple plant, thriving exceedingly well. The luxuriance of the wild vegetation 
around exceeds all we have before witnessed. We would £edn have gone 
farther, and visited more of the people, but we were compelled to be exceed- 
ingly hurried in our intercourse with them, that we might catch the boat 
which brought us ashore, as the Captain had given orders to the boat-steerer 
to leave us behind, if we were not back by the time he hoisted a flag — a signal 
between the two — as he should heave anchor and sail at that signal, and we 
did not wish to be left without any means of making ourselves comfortable 
on so sickly an island for twelve months ; therefore we endeavoured to meet 
the wishes of the Captain. Just after we stepped into the boat, the flag ran 
up. Our whole engagements with the natives, from the time we left the ship 
tin we returned, occupied just two hours. The same day we sailed away for 
Lifd ; head wind, and very strong. We succeeded in inducing four young 
men to accompany us ; two to Mar6, and two to the Hervey Group. 

" We reached Lifu on Monday, November 10th ; found Mr. Sleigh at his 
station. The Captain landed his goods safely. Wednesday, November 12, 
we sailed for Mar6, and reached there early the following morning. Messrs. 
HcFarlane and Sleigh accompanied us to attend the annual meeting of mis- 
sioq^aries, to be held at Mr. Jones's station. We found Mrs. Jones seriously 
in, which was a sad blow to her husband on arriving at his home. We sin- 
cerely hope that with his assistance, and the blessing of God, she will soon 
recover her usual health. 
" End of the sixteenth voyage of the * John Williams' to Western Polynesia. 

(Signed) " William Wtatt Gill. 

"John Jones." 


Our readers wiU remember that in March, 1863, Dk. and Mes. Tueneb, 
accompanied by four young missionaries and their respective wives, 
amongst whom were included Mr. and Mes. Ievinr, left this country 
for the Australian Colonies, en route for their appointed fields of labour 
in the islands of the Pacific. During the voyage Mr. Irvine was attacked 
by a painful disorder arising from local injury received before he left 
England, and on reaching Melbourne in June following, he was compelled 
to undergo a surgical operation. For a time sanguine hopes were entertained 
that he would be sufficiently convalescent to accompany his missionary Brethren 


to the islands ; and, with that view, he and Mrs. Irvine proceeded to Sydney 
in order to take their passage in the " John Williams." But in this they 
were disappointed ; and after the ship had left for the islands the dear patient 
became gradually worse, suffering at times excruciating pain ; and, in one of 
the paroxysms of the disorder, his happy spirit sunk peacefully to rest Our 
beloved Brother's death occurred at Sydney on the 23rd October, ult. ; and, 
after announcing the event, the Eev. A. Buzacott writes : — 

" Mr. Irvine was buried the day after, viz., the evening of the 24th. The 
Rev. W. Mclntire, who, with Mrs. Mclntire, had shown him much kindness 
during his illness, gave au address at our house previous to the removal of 
the corpse. A goodly number of ministers and gentlemen followed him to 
the grave, where the Rev. Mr. Johnson gave a very suitable address. His 
youthful and lovely widow has excited much sympathy — that just as they were 
about to realize the object of their devout wishes and prayers, the Master 
interposes and says : * It is well that it was in thine heart,' and the will is 
accepted and rewarded just as if the deed were done. 

" Our dear departed Brother was throughout in a delightful state of mind. 
He was always, when strength allowed, ready to converse on heavenly things, 
and frequently his countenance brightened with the prospect. Had it been 
the Master's will, he would, with his devoted partner, have been much delighted 
to have been actively employed in directing the heathen to the Saviour ; but 
he never murmured ; the language of his heart appeared to be, ' Not my will, 
but Thine be done.' His widow, who at first appeared crushed with the stroke, 
was enabled also through her tears to say, * Thy vill be done.' " 

It should be added that our excellent and lamented young friend, Mr. 
Irvine, had been specially designated to a highly interesting field of labour 
on the island of Uea, one of the Loyalty Group, and the inhabitants of that 
island were anxiously expecting the arrival of their missionary ; but, although 
their hopes have been thus unexpectedly dashed to the ground, we trust that, 
after no long interval, anotiier and equally zealous candidate will offer for 
the service.

The Mauritias mail, vid Marseilles, which reached Londoa on the 20th ult., 
bnmght letters from our Missionary Brethren in Madagascar ; hnt others, 
directed rid Southampton, have not yet been delivered. 

It is a cause of great thankfulness to God, that the Mission generally con- 
thiiies to be mcgrked by the tokens of His special favour ; and the intelligence 
just received confirms and enlarges the gratifying representations made in 
former numbers of our periodical. The Churches, both in the capital and in 
^e surrounding country, enjoy liberty and peace, and are receiving constant 
additions to their fellowship. Teleprinting press is hard worked, and schools 
are multiplied. Of course it will be understood that everything is yet in its 
infency ; but in all departments of the Mission there are the clearest indica- 
tions of progress, and the most cheering prospects of still wider extension. 

Ve subjoin brief extracts from a letter of our respected and beloved friend 
the Bev. "WiLLiAir Elus, by which the preceding statements are confirmed ; 
and our readers will not fail to remark fit>m his letter, that many of the new 
converts have been recently brought out of heathenism, and also that the 
Queen and her government, although attached to the old superstitions, are, 
lieyertheless, honourably upholding the article of the new constitution, which 
affords freedom and security of worship to all the people of Madagascar. 


*' Amidst the unsettlement resulting from a change of government, the 
Obnstians continue to increase in a manner truly gratifying — almost 
astonishing. Fresh adhesions to the Grospel, from the ranks of those who 
We followed the idols, take place every month. I am connected with two 
of the churches, and last Sunday forty were added to those two by baptism 
•-eighteen at one place, and twenty-two at the other; and last night, at 
our diurch-meeting at Ambotonakanga, I admitted to our fellowship six- 
teen or eighteen, including four couples, man and wife, some of them fix>m 
linages devoted to the idols, and hitherto occupied by none but idol wor- 



shippers. Daring the meetmg I learned that, at the village of Ampara- 
faravato, the depository or place of one of the idols, the inhabitants of 
which were its keepers, a number of them became Christians, set apart a 
house for worship, and met to worship the true God ; that when the Queen 
heard of it, she said, " If any of the people are Christians, and wish to leave 
the village, they may do so. It is nothing (meaning there is no blame), let 
them go. Let those who wish to stay, stay ; for there is no impediment to 
the following the idols, or to uniting with the Christians.' And some of those 
admitted to our Church had acted on this word of the Queen, and had joined 
with us. I must get their history as soon as I can. The conduct of the Queen 
often makes me think h^ attachment to the idols is not very deep or strong, 
but is in a measure used as a means of preserving the prestige of her ancestry — 
perhaps the most powerful influence over the mind of the Malagasy — and thus 
keeping aU the old conservative party attached to her government. At any 
rate, the Christians rejoice, and feel, as some said last night, * Great is the 
I)ower of God ! He will conquer alL' " 


The erection of these edifices, which have so deeply interested the friends of 
Christian Missions, has received from the Directors the most considerate 
attention; and, although they deemed it necessary, immediately after the 
death of the late king, to pause awhile before they commenced the work^ 
they have ^m later accounts been led to believe tbat the sites of tke 
intended churches might be well secured, and tbey have therefore adopted 
the following resolution : — 

'' That, provided a good title can be obtained £rc»n the Government of Mada- 
gascar for the sites of the intended buildings, one of the churches be com- 
menced forthwith." 

The building operations are for the present limited to one of the intended 
churches, not merely as a matter of precaution, but &om the necessity of the 
case, vi2., the want of a sufficient number of skilled workmen. 

The Directors deem themselves happy in having secured the services ol" 
Mb. James Sibbee, (the son of their esteemed ministerial friend of Hull), 
as the architect and superintendent of tbe churches. Mr. S. left London in 
August last, and arrived at the capital of Madagascar in the month of October, 
and the following letter, just received, gives his first report on the sites 
selected for the memorials of Christian martyrdom. The Directors feel as- 
sured that Mr. Sibbee will enter upon his work with competent skill, eor* 
rect judgment, and thorough personal devotedness, and they rejoice that their 
young friend unites sound intelligence and professional ability with sincere 
Christian principle. 

" Antananarivo, November 6th, 1863. 
'* Rbt. utd dbab Sib, — ^A few days after my arrival I accompanied Mr. 
Ellis round the sites of the proposed Memorial Churches ; and, before partaen- 

FOR MABCH, 1864. &1 

lariring the points of intereflt peculiar to each epoti, let me here saj that I 
can in every respect corroborate the statement of oar yalned friend as to the 
importance of these sites as positions for bnildings of the character we propose 
to erect. I can, apart from every professional feding, enter folly into Ihe 
enthusiasm with which he has mrged this matter npon the religious puhKo of 
Bngland. Could our friends at home see these positions, they would feel as 
desirous as we do that such places should he ccmsecrated for ever by Christian 
worship, as they have already been by the blood of the maaftyrs. As an arehi- 
tecty I feel that the opportunity afforded to me is one which is very rare, and 
Uiat the picturesque and commanding position of these places is worthy of the 
best efforts of a master in the art. Had we been able to select fr^m the whole 
dtj we could not have obtained finer situations for our buildings ; and, as you 
will perceive from the sketch-tracing I indose, they form centres from which 
we eu command the whole of the captal. 


** The first site which we visited was Abapimabikana, which is the smallest 
in area of all four, and is but a little distance below the palace, on the west of 
the city. From this spot, which is the Tarpeian Bock of the city, nimibers of 
fiothful men were thrown down the almost perpendicular precipice and dashed 
to pieces. This place commands a fine view of the great parade-ground imme- 
diately below, the beautiful artificial lake, and the remarkable conical hill 
Ambohidzanahary (the hill of God), together with the great rice-plain and 
ranges of mountains beyond, to the westward. At present, a quantity of the 
bushes of the prickly pear cover, and somewhat take off, from the raggedness 
of the cliffs ; but from the printing-office and school, and from the Mission 
premises at Amparibe, the bold and rocky crags are seen to great advantage. 
From its proximity to the palace and chief nobles' residences, the church to 
be erected here will probably have the most infiuential congregation. 


" From here we proceeded to the site at Axbohifotsy, a fine rocky plateau 
at the southern extremity of the hill on which the city is mainly built. H^e 
the ground has been levdled, and from its area an uninterrupted view east, 
south, and west is obtained. From the elevation above the plain, viz., two to 
three hundred feet, a great extent of countay is commanded, and a rery large 
number of villages and small towns can be counted. On the slopes and difis 
snrrounding we shall, I believe, be able to procure plenty of granite, a large 
ncunber of stones being already squared and dressed. I looked, as you may 
suppose, with strange feelings upon a number of bones bleaching in the sun, 
when I learnt that these were the remains of the faithful confessors who were 
here speared for Christ's sake, and for the testimony of the Gk>spel. I could 
almost excuse something of the Bomish reverence for relics as I viewed these 
veritable relics of real saints. 


*' From Ambohipotsy we retraced our steps, and passing by the palace and 
through the city, descended by the chief road and thoroughfiire to the south- 
weatem quarter of the slope of the hill to Ambauhakajtoa. A temporary 
du^el of woody with thatched roof, is now standing on part of this site, and 

D 2 


maj perhaps be regarded as the mother church of the other five, being one 
of the first phices erected for Christian worship in the Island at the founding 
of the Mission. The position of this place, at an angle formed by the junction 
of the principal roads in the city, is perhaps the most convenient of all four. 
Here a number of the Natiye Christians suffered in chains for their stead- 
fastness, and endured ' bonds and imprisonment/ which in some cases were 
the prelude to violent and cruel deaths. The ground is at present rough and 
uneven, large irregular masses of rock cropping up ; but as these will to a 
large ertent supply stone of fair quality, we shall save the expense of bringing 
it from a distance. 


^'The fourth and last of these sacred spots is Fabayohitba, which 
occupies, at the northern extremity of the city, somewhat the same x>oeition as 
Ambohipotsy at the south. The hill is here rather lower, but frtym the top 
is opened a similarly wide prospect to the west, north and east ; northward 
some six miles distant, can be seen the hill of Itasy, where the misguided 
Badama 11. is buried, while beyond it, about double the distance, in a nearly 
straight line, is the wooded hill of Ambohimanga, where is the grave of the 
late Queen Banavalona. The ground here is the most irregular of all four 
sites. On the position now partly occupied by a vegetable garden, in sight 
of a great part of the city, of the palace and nobles' houses, of the military 
^parade ground, and the great market-place below, the four Christian nobles 
endured the fiery trial, and passed from the burning stake to the martyr's 
crown. I am told that the charcoal from the fires is still turned up. I turned 
homeward again, feeling that I had been visiting holy ground, and that Mr. 
Ellis's idea of securing these places for Christian worship was a beautiful and 
appropriate thought, and one worthy of the energies of the people of England, 
who can themselves point to the blood of the martyrs as having proved the 
seed of the Church. 


** I have, with Mr. Ellis's assistance, endeavoured to obtain all possible 
information as to the ability of native workmen, the quality and supply of 
materials to be obtained, the adaptations required for the climate and the 
habits of the i>eople, together with other points necessary to be considered 
in*designing and planning the churches. I have visited several buildings, 
chiefly gateways and tombs, which have been constructed during the past 
four years, and have been surprised at the ability shown in some of them. 
One very •large tomb, in the outskirts of the city to the north-west, is an 
astonishing work, considering the absence of European superintendence. 
This structure is a square of perhaps a hundred feet in dimensions each way, 
surrounded by a stone verandah supported on columns and segmental arches. 
Another coloimade is erected on the main building, and at the angles of tne 
principal front two very elegant erections, of somewhat Hindoo character, 
complete the desig^. The careful finish of the mouldings is very remarkable, 
and shows that the workmen, under proper guidance, are capable of macn 
more than would be supposed. Whether, however, the larger ^®. ^^ 
buildings, and the greater height of the walls, would overtask their sioijt 
remains to be proved. This tomb has been built entirely of granite, whicB 

FOR UA-RCH, 1864. 53 

was bronght from the sites of two of our ohnrclies, viz. Ambatanakanga, 
and FaraYohitry, and is in excellent preservation. Although many parts 
have been erected some years, yet the marks of the pick and chisd are mostly 
as sharp as on the day when made. I should feel therefore little hesitation 
in using this material for the memorial buildings, supposing that a sufficient 
quantity of the proper kind can be obtained. It varies much in texture and 
hardness, from a stone equal to Aberdeen granite, to a kind as soft as day. 
This tomb was constructed under the superintendence of three workmen, one 
of whom was thrown from the rocks at Ampamarinana, and the other two 
have been engaged by Mr. Ellis to superintend the masons. There are 
sereral gateways in various parts of the city, which have evidently been 
roughly copied from drawings of Roman triumphal arches, and are very 
creditably executed. 


"But one great difficulty which we shall have to contend with, is the 
scarcity of skilled workmen. From what our two foremen tell me, we cannot 
get more than about forty men who are capable of doing masons* work, while 
we should have from sixty to seventy to commence with. We may be able 
to train others, who in time would be able to assist, by preparing the stone 
roughly for the others to finish ; but this would be a work of time, and unless 
we have a considerable addition to the number of men, I believe a much 
longer period than three years will be required for the completion of the 
churches. There is another fact which is almost certain to cause delay. We 
are not sure even of these workmen. All skilled artisans are servants or 
slaves to the nobles and rich men ; and although we may pay for their work,, 
we are entirely dependent upon the good will of the masters for their co^- 
tinuance. They will be called off continually for drilling as troops, and, should 
the government require them for any public works, we may be left without 
their service for months. In case of war, we should not of course be able to 
retain them. I mention these facts to show you exactly our position ; you 
must not think I am disposed to look at the dark side of the subject — on the 
contrary, I am determined to make the best of things, and to see if it be 
not possible to make a commencement. Still, you will see that they are grave 
matters, and may considerably hinder our progress. 


** Before I conclude I must mention another subject in connection with the 
buildings, viz., their probable cost. I cannot speak with much accuracy, but 
from the rough calculations I have obtained, I think Mr. Ellis has somewhat 
Mnder-estimated the cost of the churches. There are some points which, as a 
non-professional man, he has very excusably overlooked. It will be well, 
therefore, at the outset to say that I think from £500 to £1000 may be 
required in each case beyond what he has named, that is, if the churches are 
to be anything more than four plain walls with a substantial covering. X 
believe that the feeling of those who have subscribed, as well as the Directors 
themselves, would not be satisfied merely with this, but would suggest that 
something, combining in addition appropriateness of character and pleasing 
exterior, shotdd be aimed at. I hope we shall not be limited to the amount 


(£2500) named in mj instmctions ae the ezpenditore for each church. When 
the cost of chmehes in Enghind is considered, where we haye ererj appli« 
anoe of modem skill and ingentdtj to save expense and labour, and then 
contrast it with onr want of most of these, the expense of obtaining many 
thongs from England, the training of workmen, and the ineritable cost of 
eoqierience in sodi work, I'^hope neither the Directors nor the public will 
think us wanting in due care and economy if the amounts named are exceeded. 
I beliere few, if any, chapels of eyen plain character, haye been erected at 
home to hold the number we propose to accommodate, for such an amount. 
And while I can assure the Directors that, as far as I haye to do with it, all 
needless expense shall be ayoided, and due economy used, I belieye I should 
not be discharging my duty if I did not attempt to giye the buildings some- 
thing of architectural character worthy of the eyents they are designed to 

*' Although I hardly feel yet in a position to spealc with certainly, it appears 
to me that we should endeayour to make a commencement with one church 
— ^that at Ambalinakanoa. By the next mail I may therefore be able to 
send you word that one foimdation stone has been laid. I haye felt great 
difficulty and perplexity as to the right path to pursue in the unforeseen 
circumstances which haye occurred ; yet I trust that both wisdom and strength, 
win be giyen to act for the best. I must express my deep sense of obligation to 
Mr. Ellis for his unyarying kindness and confidence. 

** Please to remember me to Mr. Prout, and, with many thanks to yourself 
and to him for your great kindness and courtesy, belieye me to remain,

The intelligence recently received from the Rev. Joseph Edkins, and which 
we now lay before our readers, is the first of its kind which we have had the 
pleasure to report. It will be seen that our esteemed friend, who is now 
located in the capital, accompanied by the Rev. Jonathan Lees, started 
from Pekino in the month of October last, on a missionary journey to the 
north. They proceeded as far as a populous trading town called Chaito ha 
Kow, distant 130 English miles from the capital. This flourishing town is 
on the high road to Russia, and on the frontier of Tabtart. On their journey 
they incurred no obstruction, and enjoyed many opportunities of circulating 
the truths of the Gospel. The country through which they passed presented 
many objects of deep and varied interest ; and the general result of this first 
missionary itinerancy justifies the expectation that Christian teachers in the 
north of China wiU, perhaps^ fiud fewer obstructionB to their labours than 
are encountered in the x)opulous mercantile cities south of Peking. It must 
sorelj awaken great thankfulness on the part of the Christian Church, that 

FOR MARCH, 1864. 55 

eren in the capital of China and in the unknown regions beyond it, the 
aerrants of Christ may pursne their peaceful labours without let or hindrance; 
and "who shall despise the day of small things ?" 

" Peking, November 23, 1863. 
'* Mt i>bab Bbothbb, — Since I wrote to you last month I have visited 
■Hentain, and administered the Lord's Supper to the converts, and also 
baptised two persons. Both of them were well spoken of by the converts, 
mad Bnaaimously approred. I now leave the Native Church at that Station 
in the hands of Mr. Lees. The working strength of the Church consists of 
three men who have evinced some aptitude for preaching, and a young man 
who may become usefdl as a schoolmaster. Mr. L. retains one preacher and 
the young schoolmaster, while I have brought the other two preachers here. 

'* Mr. Lees accompanied me to this city in the latter part of October, and 
we set out a few days after on a missionary journey to Chang eia kow. 
ThiA is a large trading town about 130 English miles from Peking, on the 
road to Russia. It is at the frontier of Tartary, and the traffic of Kiachta 
pftsaing through it renders it extremely flourishing. The Bussians call it 
TCalgan. Mr. Wylie, before he left England, wrote to ask me to meet him 
tiiere. We returned, however, after reaching the first x>osting station, twenty- 
two mileB past Chang Ida kow, without meeting our valued friend ; but, a few 
days after our return, a letter reached us from TJrga, in which he informed us 
that, having reached that place (the capital of Mongolia), he hoped to arrive at 
Peking on the 30th of this month. 

** While we were at Chang kia kow, two Russians came to our inn, who 
proved to be merchants connected with the Kiachta trade. I accosted them 
in Chinese, which one of them understood. He is called M. Starstoff, and 
resides at Tientsin. He gave me some interesting particulars respecting our 
early Mission at Selinginsk, of which town he is a native. When he was a 
b(^, he knew the families of the English missionaries, and has often seen 
Shagdur, of whom notices appear in our old magazines. This aged Buriat 
convert, who on one occasion travelled nearly as far as to Chang Ida kow as 
a preacher and distributor of books, was still living, three years ago, when 
young M. Starstoff was in Selinginsk. He is supported by his son and the 
produce of his land. The missionaries of the G^eek Church, who have been 
labouring for many years among the Buriats, have been joined by some of the 
converts who were the fruit of the labours of our missionaries, but others have 
not joined them, preferring to continue as they were. The Greek mission- 
aries have printed books in Mongolian, making use of the treatises already 
prepared by Messrs. Stallybrass and Swan. M. Starstoff has promised me 
C(^e8 of these reprints. Whatever farther information I can obtain on this 
interesting subject I wiU communicate to you. But Mr. Wylie, who passed 
through Selinginsk, will doubtless bring much interesting and important 
iaieUigence repecting Shagdur and his associates, which will be more recent 
and full than the particulars I accidentally gathered from my Russian friend. 
" The road we traversed proceeds north from Peking, through a rich 
country well planted with groves of fimereal trees and roadside avenues, for 
twenty miles, to the celebrated tombs of the Mings. Here thirteen of the 


emperors of that proud Chinese dynasty were laid, each in his own sepulchre. 
They occupy a vast amphitheatre among mountains, opening to the south, 
and occupying about fifteen square miles. Rich marble ardies and monu- 
ments abound. The tomb of Yung lo, who in the fifteenth century remoTed 
the seat of goyemment firom Nanking to Peking, is of magnificent proportions. 
The pillars which support the tablet hall are enormous teak trees, brought by 
land from Burmah. The artificial mound, in which the remains of this 
emperor are interred, is nearly a mile in circumference. A long avenue of 
gigantic stone figures conducts to these tombs. The figures represent officers 
of state, elephants, lions, camels, horses, and various fabulous animals. 

** Leaving this curious spectacle, we went through a rocky mountain pass, 
extending for fifteen miles through the mountain chain, which here stretches 
from the N.E. to the S.W. Five miles from the entrance, we came upon a 
monument in four languages, erected in the time of the Mongolian dynasty. 
The languages are Sanscrit, Tibetan, Mongol, and Chinese. The subject is a 
Buddhist charm, intended to be read by travellers making use of these lan- 
guages, for their own preservation and that of the empire. The great wall is 
carried over the mountains on the north side of the chain. Beside ike 
double gates and walls of this ancient structure, there are two fortresses, which 
guard the interior of the pass, and another at its south end. Leaving these 
barriers, we entered on the department of Siuen hwa fu, where we visited 
several walled towns and cities. Siuen hwa fu is the seat of a Bomanist 
mission. Its walls are ten miles in circuit. Li the thirteenth century it was 
the summer residence of the Mongol emperors, a circumstance which led to 
its walls being extended to this large size. Near it there is an extensive 
range of coal pits, which appear to have been worked for many centuries. 

" This is the season for the annual visit of Mongol traders to Peking. We 
met groups of them, with large droves of camels, and some of them riding on 
ponies. Those with whom I was able to have a few minutes' conversation 
accepted books with willingness. We are now distributing constantly, as 
there is opportunity, copies of seven tracts by Mr. StaUybrass, and the Old 
and New Testaments, by Mr. Swan and Mr. Stallybrass, all in Mongolian. 

" Chang kia kow is a very populous and busy town. We remained there 
two nights. A French merchant, who is also a zealous Catholic, is residing 
there, and there is also a Bussian consulate. We spent one of our Sundays 
on the edge of the Mongolian plateau, to which point a day's riding on our 
mules brought us, by a rapidly ascending road. There we saw the sort of life 
which the Abb§ Hue vividly depicts in his work on Tartary — the fire of 
argols ; the round tent, with its fire in the centre ; its felt carpeting round the 
fire for seats ; and its piled boxes and household articles on the sides. Some of 
the Mongols we found living in houses constructed in Chinese fashion. The 
women and children came forward to see us without fear. Li the village, two 
only of these simple, kindly-tempered people could read. 

*' At various towns where we stopped for the night, going and returning, 
we sought out the schoolmasters in the neighbourhood, and strove to awaken 
their interest in the good things of the kingdom of Grod ; and obtained from 
them what information we could regarding the towns in which they reside. 
The anxiety exhibited for books was, as is usual in China, very great ; and 

FOR MARCH, 1864. 67 

we hope jour prayers will ascend to the Lord of the harvest, that the books 
given away may be useful to the readers. A oustom-honse officer at one 
town bad previously received a Testament when at Tungcheu, his native city. 
This be said he bad given to a friend, and was anxious to have another. 

** I am now establishing a small preaching station in a populous part of 
this city, and a day-school in another. Soon I hope I may be able to inform 
joa that these attempts to extend our operations here have proved fruitftil 
in spiritual benefits to the people in the vicinity. 

** The summary dismissal of Captain Osbom and Mr. Lay by the Chinese 
Goremment has caused us some anxiety. It looks like the commencement 
of an anti-foreign policy ; but, while the present English ambassador remains, 
it is not likely that anything will be done to irritate or alienate the Native 
authorities. Now that we have obtained a lodgment here, the mild policy of 
her Majesty's representative is to us the beet guarantee for our undisturbed 
continuance in this important field for missionary labour.

" Shanghae, December 9th, 1863. 

"Dear Dr. Tidman, — I have much pleasure in informing you of the 
arrival of the * Polmaise.' Our missionary friends are all weU, and appear 
thoroughly to have enjoyed their voyage. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas are now 
with us, and I beg to thank the Directors for having sent us such a reinforce- 
ment. Your kind expressions in regard to them are amply confirmed in our 
view ; and it will give me the utmost pleasure to labour with our dear Brother 
in the service of our blessed Lord and Master. 

" When the * Folmaise ' arrived, at the close of last week, there seemed to 
be no hope of our other Brethren, Dr. Dudgeon and Mr. James Williamson, 
proceeding north during the winter. Accordingly, I sought to make all 
needful arrangements for their stay here. I have just been informed, how- 
ever, by the consignee of one of the steamers, that there is a probability of 
her going north in a day or two. It is uncertain, on account of the setting 
in of the ice. Still, if she should go, I shall be glad to send our two Brethren 
by her, as they are also anxious to reach their respective destinations. The 
steamer will not land them at Tientsin, but at Taku, from which there are 
suitable means of conveyance to Tientsin and Peking. It will be a great 
satisfiEustion to our missionary friends there to see their colleagues as soon as 

*' Mr. McMachan, Baptist missionary, after staying a night or two with us, 
goes to-day to Chefoo. 

" Mr. Wylie has not arrived here yet, and I don't expect him for some 
time. He would probably reach Peking on the 80th ult., and unless he comes 
speedily he will be detained in the north till spring. I am most desirous of 
knowing at his hands the relation he will sustain to the printing-office. My

Whilst among the people of India there are still multitudes who, from 
bigotry or custom, cling to their hereditary superstitions, and refuse to 
examine the claims of Christianity, there are others — and happily their 
numbers are largiely on the increase— who listen to the message of a Saviour's 
love with interest and delight. The Rev. Edward Porter, of Cuddapah, 
during a recent tour in Hyderabad, a much neglected portion of the Telugu 
country, met with many of this latter class ; and truly affecting must it 
have been, when he had proclaimed the Gospel in their midst, to hear their 
pathetic rebuke :— " How long have you known of this good way ? Why 
did you not come and tell us about it before ?*' The field is indeed ripe unto 
the harvest, but the labourers are few and far between. Would that they 
were greatly multiplied ! 

" As I have just returned from a long and deeply interesting tour in the 
E^derabad country (having been absent two months from home, travelled 
seven hundred and twenty miles, and visited, either myself or with the aid of 
the evangelist (Peter), upwards of ninety towns and villages), I am able to 
speak concerning the nature of the country, the disposition of the people, and 
the facilities that at present exist for the spread of Divine truth in this hitherto 
neglected part of the Telugu country. Prom Kumool to Hyderabad is a 
fme open coimtry, interspersed with low forest, and capable of great agricul- 
tural improvements. It consists of a fine elevated plain, gradually rising from 
the banks of the Kestua, as far as the neighbourhood of Hyderabad, to the 
height of 22(X> feet above the level of the sea. The present condition of the 
inhabitants is very distressing to every Christian and benevolent mind. 


" The people (chiefly Telugus), are very ignorant, low in worldly circum- 
stances, agriculture very rude, date toddy drank by all classes, which is sadly 
corrupting to body and soul. They are grievously oppressed by their 
voracious landlords, but free from prejudice, less wedded to caste, and far more 
willing to listen to the message of redeeming love than any natives of the 
Cnddapah, and other districts, which I have visited in the Telugu country. 

FOB MXRCHy 1864. 59 


** In some places, as at Jannpett, Coba-Cota, and Fnrruknugger, they came 
oat of their villages in groups of tbirtj, sixty, and ninety, and followed as to 
,the bungalow, beseeching us to tell them more of the good way. In this way 
we were engaged from day to day, instructing the people as long as we had 
physical strength to continue our labours among them. 

"The foUy of idolatry, the evil character of the Hindoo gods, the nature of 
sin as opposed to God's authority and man's true happiness, the necessity of 
an all- sufficient sacrifice to atone for sin, the glorious provision that God has 
made in the Gospel for the removal of it, and our restoration to the Divine 
favour and image, the nature and happiness of the heavenly world — all 
these topics were fufly discussed and explained to this interesting people, 
intermixed with earnest exhortations to come to Jesus for spiritual healing. 
In most cases the natives listened with deep attention, in some with evident 
anxiety, and in others the countenance lightened up with joy when we told 
them of the boundless love of God to sinners in Christ Jesus. In a few 
coses it was difficult to leave them, so great was their anxiety for us to stay 
with them a few days, to tell them more of this good way. 

** The questions put by some of them were very painful, fi&owing the great 
apathy and deficiency of zeal on the part ci the Christian Church to meet the 
jyiilUi al wants of the heathen wcrid, and the great extent of country that 
remains yet to be oooopied. 

** After hearing our messages, some would ash us, ' Sir, how long have your 
people known of this good way P* When we t<^d them hundreds of years, the 
repty was ready : * Why did you not send us instruction before, to tell us of 
this good way P* What could we say to such words ? Others would ask with 
anxiety, * When will you come again and tell us more of this reKgion ?' 


" I will give you a few extracts from my journal, as exhibiting the anxiety of 
the people to hear the Word of life. 

" August 6th. — ^Arrived at Jannpett, a large village in the country of the 
Kunupurthy B^ah, seventy miles from Kumool, and one hundi'ed and 
ninety from Cuddapah. Here we fcmnd a new bungalow just finished, for the 
aocommodation of European trav^ers. The scenery all round was beautiful, 
and the air cool and bracing. We spoke to a few natives in the village as we 
passed through it, and then went on to the bungalow, having visited and 
preached in two villages that morning. 


•* A short time after our arrival, a number of natives followed us to listen to 
our message. Upwards of forty sat down in the verandah to listen to our 
instrcctionB. We exposed the foUy of idol-worship, the nature and curse of 
sin, and then pointed out the more excellent way. One man, of the smith 
caste, contended stoutly for Soeva being the true God. But when our 
erangeKst showed plainly, f^m their own books, the vile actions of Sceva, 
be was silenced, and confessed that such deeds did not become the true God. 
We then showed them, in contrast, the Hfe and character of our Lord Jesus 
C^arist^ and what He had doneand suffered for us, and exhorted them to beKero 


in Him for salvation. We had a second assembly after this was dismissed, to 
whom we made known the Word of life. The evangelist also went in the even- 
ing to the village, and addressed a large assembly in one of the chief streets. 
Upwards of one hundred assembled, and listened for nearly an hour to his 
teaching. Before leaving them he offered up prayer to the true Grod on their 
behalf, that He would enable them to forsake all idol-worship, and give them 
grace to embrace the true religion. They put themselves in the attitude of 
prayer, and were very silent during the whole of this devotional exercise. 
They asked, on his going away, 'When will you visit us again and tell us more 
of this new religion P* They assured our evangelist that they had never heard 
this good religion before. In this village we noticed girls learning to read in 
the school, a thing which is veiy rarely seen in this country, except where 
missionary operations have been carried on for some time. 



" August 6th. — Went to Moosawpett, a large village about two miles distant. 
Here we had a large congregation of upwards of seventy souls. Bead part of 
the fifth chapter of the GU>spel by Matthew, and explained the nature of true 
religion, and the true characteristics of GUxl's children in all ages. We showed 
also the vanity of trusting to mere outward ceremonies whilst the heart is 
corrupt and the life wicked. After this was finished, one Brahmin contended 
that Qod was the author of sin; that, as all things came from Him, so He was 
the author of good and evil. We showed him and the people around that God 
could not be the author of sin for various reasons. 1. Because it was contrary 
to his Holy nature. 2. Because it was contrary to the light of conscience which 
Qod had put in the breast of every man. 8. Because God had connected punish- 
ment with sin, in the present life. 4. That all the punishments inflicted by the 
various governments of the world upon men, for crimes of various kinds, 
showed that sin was from man, and not from Grod. He was silenced, but still 
imagined that sin must have had a birth, looking upon it as some material 
thing, instead of a corrupt state of mind leading to all wicked deeds. 


" The evangelist sold a few tracts, and we then went away to the bungalow. 
About two p. M. we left for Juggedercherla, the next stage. As we were 
going on the road, a woman came out and asked us for books. My servant 
went and spoke to the people in the village. They heard with great attention^ 
and wished us very much to stay with them. Many of them had never seen 
anything in the shape of tracts or books before. 

" Th^ were much delighted, and purchased some at a low price. All the 
tracts we distributed contain a short account of the fall of man, and the 
way of salvation by Jesus Christ. So we may hope these little messengers 
will teach them, when our voice is no longer heard. 


" 8^. — ^Arrived at Furrutonugger, a large town, thirty miles frt>m Hyderabad* 
We went out into the street, and addressed a large number of persons (about 
two hundred). They listened with great attention and respect, whilst we 
explained the character of the true God, the ten conunandments, the trans* 

FOR MARCH, 1864. 61 

gresmon of man, and the way of salvation by Jeans Christ. I showed how 
men had corrupted their way by forgetting the true God and going after idols. 
I compared the soul of man to a garden, which God had given us to keep, 
that we must dig up the weeds of evil passion and wicked thoughts found in 
it, and sow it with good instruction. The people replied, * What you say is 
goody and we must try and remember your instructions.* Others said, * Sir, 
we have worshipped our gods, because we knew of no better; but your 
religion tells us of a pure and holy (Jod, and we must try and remember Him.' 
After we left the town, and went to the bungalow, great numbers followed 
us, 80 that we were occupied all the day in reading and explaining the Word 
of Grod to successive groups, who came to us to know more of this new 
religion. When 1 was tired, the evangelist would take up the work of in- 
struction, and explain to them the reasons why we had come among them, 
and the blessings that would flow to them from embracing this good way. 
Though we were in the midst of the Nizam's country, yet we met with no 
molestation, and the Mohammedans of the town we found civil and well- 
behaved, which cannot be said of most of them. We sold eight annas worth 
of Telugu Scriptures and tracts at this place, and found it difficult to move 
from hence, so great was the desire of the people to hear more of the Word of 



" Pacaltsdorp, December 15th, 1863. 

" My dear Sir, — ^I have lately been engaged with some of my Brethren in 
several interesting services, and of these they have requested me to send you 
a brief account. 

" The' first was the ordination of our young Brother, Mr. Samuel Parker 
Elliott, who, as you are aware, is the son of our late highly-esteemed Brother, 
the Rev. W. Elliott, and who has been recognised by the Directors of our 
Society as one of its agents in this colony. He was ordained at Dysselsdorp 
to the work of the ministry generally, and more especially as the pastor of 
the Church at that place. Dysselsdorp had been for twenty-two years under 
the care of our Brother, the Rev. B. E. Anderson, and out of his labours, under 
the Divine blessing, have subsequentiy arisen the congregations at Oudtshoom 
and Malges River (or Cango). Mr. A., however^ found the constant oversight 
of all these places, and the labour involved, too much for his strength ; and 
hence measures were taken by which Dysselsdorp should become a s^arate 
station with its own pastor. Our friend Mr. Elliott, having paid the people 
at Dysselsdorp a visit, was invited to settie among them, and accepted the 
invitation. After nine months, his ordination was fixed for the Srd of 
December. Having no railroads in this part of the colony, nor even the con- 
venience of coaches, travelling is often difficult and expensive, and sometimes 
also a very unpleasant undertaking, especially in rainy weather, such as we 
have lately had. Our Brethren^ Helm and Barber, arrived here (Pacaltsdorp) 
on the evening of the 1st inst., having had torrents of rain just before reaching 


this place. The following mommg the weather was still wet and threatening, 
and we were in doabt iHiether we coald undertake the joumej. After some 
d^aj, we resolved on. making the attempt ; but had not been long on the road 
before we enooontered a heavy storm of rain, which rendered it donbtfol 
whether we mnst not retom after all, and wait for finer weather. But after a 
time it cleared np, and we had a fine daj, and reached onr destination in safety 
before sunset. The next day proved all that we conld wish — a truly lovely 
morning. An early prayer meeting was held, to supplicate a special blessing 
cm the important services of the day. Some of the Native Brethren offo^ 
appropriate prayers. As the people at Dysselsdorp were aware that there 
would be a far greater concourse than coidd possibly get into or near the 
chapel, they had ccmstructed a kind of booth under the trees in front of the 
Mission House, and it answered the purpose exceedingly well. We were 
shaded from the sun by the awning above us, and at the same time, the sides 
being open, it was delightfully cod. Tha:^ were about 1200 persons present, 
including many of the respectable residents at Oudtshoom and the neighbour- 
ing farms. 

" The service commenced at nine o'clock, wiUi singing, reading of the 
Scriptures, and prayer by Rev. W. Barber ; the Rev. D. Helm delivered an 
instructive and very appropriate address to the Church and congregation ; 
the usual questions were put to the young minister and the deacons of the 
church by the Rev. T. Atkinson ; and the replies given by Mr. Elliott were 
highly satisfactory. After the ordination prayer, which was offered by 
Mr. Atkinson, accompanied by the laying on of hands, the Rev. B. E. 
Anderson, pastor of the church for twenty-two years, gave an affectionate 
and faithful charge, founded on Ezekiel xxxiii. 7; and the Rev. D. Helm 
concluded with prayer. 

*' It was an interesting and delightflil service, the first of the kind ever 
attended by the greater number of those who were present ; and to those of 
us who took part in it, there was the remarkable circumstance that aU^were 
the iOHs of ministers or missionaries, 

"Having dined under the shade of the trees in the garden, and thus 
making it almost literally a 'feast of tabernacles,' we assembled for the 
afternoon service, when the newly-ordained pastor preached a sermon appro- 
priate to his entrance on the stated duties of his office, firom 1 Cor. ii. 16, 17. 
After this service most of the visitors from a distance returned to their 
homes, but there were still more than enough left to fill the chapel in the 
evening, when the Rev. B. E. Anderson delivered a farewell discourse to his 
former flock, from Acts xx. 32. It was very solemn and affecting, and our 
good Brother felt much at parting from the people. After the sermon, one 
of the deacons thanked Mr. Anderson, in the name of the church, for aH his 
labours among them for so many years, and handed to him a parting gift, 
which consisted of the collections made during the day. Mr. Anderson 
concluded with a very earnest prayer for the people and their newly-ordained 

"On Saturday, the 5th inst., we met at Oudtshoom, for the annual 
gathering and communion of the associated Churches of Oudtshoom, Dyss^- 
dorp, Matjes River, Matjes 3>rifb, and Hope Dale. The last two were till 

FOR MARCH, 1864. 63 

recentlj under the care of our departed Brother, Mr. Hood, but sre now for a 
tune tinder the care of our Brethren Anderson and Elliott. The report 
haTing been read bj Mr. Anderson, the meeting was addressed by Messrs. 
Atkinson, Helm, Barber, and others. In the eyening the Rev. S. P. Elliott 
preached to a large congregation. On the following Sabbath morning the 
Ber. T. Atkinson preached from Isaiah xzv. 9. At the close we nnited in 
cdebrating the Lord's Sapper. It was deeply intereating to see so many 
rniifcJTig in this holy solemnity. There were about 350 assembled from various 
churches; most of them had been called to the fellowship of the Grospel 
within a comparatively few years, — formerly wandering and ready to perish 
in the wilderness, but now brought into the fold of Christ, enjoying the 
privileges of His flock, under the guardianship of the Great Shepherd of the 
sheep. In the afternoon our Wesleyan Brother, Mr. Barber, preached in 
English for the Rev. T. Van der Kiet, of the Dutch Reformed Church, and 
gave us a deUghtfiil discourse ; in the evening Mr. Helm preached from 
Acts viiL 26, &c., and Mr. Anderson closed with a short address and prayer. 
The chapel was crowded to excess, especially in the evening. 

«' Being anxious that my flock at Facaltsdorp should have a share in these 
privileges, I availed myself of the assistance of our Brethren Barber and 
Helm on their way home. I returned on the Monday to make the necessary 
arrangements; and on Tuesday evening these Brethren arrived, and also 
Mr. Anderson, who kindly came to assist on the occasion. Though the 
notice was so short, and many of our men were absent at work, we had a 
very ^air attendance. A short report of the state of the Mission was read, 
and the congr^ation was addressed by the Brethren just mentioned, and by 
some of our Native friends ; and I trust the good effects of this meeting will 
yet be manifest. On the following morning our friends left us, and proceeded 
cm their joum^ homewards, except Mr. Anderson, who kindly gave us anoth^ 
sermon in the evening. I trust that some good impressions were produced 
by his faithful and earnest labour of love. This closed the series of engage- 
ments, which we may hope were profitable to many, and which we trust will 
be fdlowed by the blessing of the great Head of the Church. 

" Entreating for myself and family, my Brethren and sisters in the work, 
and our respective congregations, a continued interest in your prayerful 

" I remain, my dear Sir,

SnrcE the publication of our last number, an unusual amount of intelligence 
has reached us from our missionaries in ANXANAJirAsiYO, from which we 
intend to give brief specimens in connection with the several departments of 
nuBsionazy operation. Our readers will thus have the direct testimony of 
the labourers in reference to their own peculiar work. We need hardly 
observe that they have difficulties — formidable difficulties — ^with which to 
contend ; yet, reviewing the serious events which have occurred since their 
arrival, these difficulties are fewer than might have been apprehended. On 
the other hand, their encouragements are nmnerous and great : — ^the govern- 
ment appears to be established ; they enjoy perfect freedom in the prosecution 
of their work ; every month the Churches receive numerous additions, and 
Hxe congregations generally crowd the spacious places of worship in which 
they assemble. Oar missionary Brethren give evidence of their diligence in 
the acquisition and use of the native language ; and in the several auxiliary 
departments of education, the press, and medical practice, every man is busily 
and successfrdly employed. "We proceed to give extracts from their several 
reports: — 


** With regard to the prospects of the Mission among the people, nothing 
can be more encouraging. The five chapels are crowded every Sunday, and 
two more are in course of erection. Both adults and children are eager for 
knowledge, and there is perfect liberty of action. A very large population in 
villages around the capital are ready for the €k)8pel, for heathenism here 
seems never to have had that all-absorbing x>ower and influence which most 
systems of idolatry have. As far as I can see, there is little to be displaced 
by the Gospel, except the natural enmity of the hxunan heart ; and I believe 
it is welcomed as a bright revealer of certainties in place of the shadowy 
v€iffueness of their former belief. 


VOL. xxviii . — 1864. 


"The Clmrcli at Analakely being without a European superintendent," 
writes Mr. Pearse, " at the request of the members of that Church I have 
consented to occupy that position for a time. It may lead to my remaining 
permanently ; but, till I know more of the language, it has been thought best 
to let it be but a temporary an-angement. Here the field of usefulness is 
large ; but at present all that I can do is to read the Scriptures and announce 
the hymns at om* public services, and consult with the natiye preachers and 
deacons on matters connected with tl» Church. 

" The building in which we worship will hold about one thousand persons, 
and is usually quite fiill. There are one hundred and eighty members belong- 
ing to the Church, and at our Church meeting held last Wednesday ten 
persons were proposed for membership. For these tokens that the work of 
the Lord is prospering among us you will gladly join in thanking the great 
Head of the Church, and, with your thanksgiving, will join with your distant 
Brethren in supplication that a still greater measure of the Spirit may be 
poured out on Madagascar, and that to our Churches many more may be 
added of such as shall be saved. 

" The building in which we worship is a rude structure of mud and rushes, 
and would doubtless offend the eyes of many in England who are accustomed 
to worship in chapels and churches upon the erection of which skill and art 
have been bestowed ; but for the natives of Madagascar, many of whom live in 
houses erected of the same materials, it answers very weU, although I shall 
hail the erection of a more substantial building, and shaU feel that during this 
season <^ the year I am in less danger of getting a sbower-badi durmg the 
hours of wordiip than I am under th« preaeDi ra^r poiovi roo£ 


" Jidditiona are still made to our Churches of such ae we have reason to 
liope are, m ihe judgment of charity, converted to Christ, and partakers of 
spiritual life, though that life be but feeble^ and, in some of its manifestationB, 
obscure. The mjgority of those from without, who now frequent our places of 
worship on the Sabbath and at other times, are many of them such as have 
been halting between two opinions, but are seeking reasons to decide for 
Christ, coming to hear and ascertain for tJiemselves what Christianity is ; and 
though the greater portion of these may as yet be but apparent or external 
adherents to ChristiaiLity, they come wkhin the influence of the Gospel, and 
their growing numbers render not only our hope of the future increase ef the 
Church stronger, but the improbability of persecution for Christ's sake greater 
every day. 

" The country remains quiet, the Government is apparently becoming settled, 
and no relaxation on the part of the Sovereign and others in visible devoted- 
ness to the idols is manifest. No impediment is offered or allowed to the per- 
fectly free action of the Christians, alike in the enjoyment of their own privi- 
leges, and their efforts to extend the Gospel to others..

^e Christians were assembled, and, in company with some of the Brethren, 
I proceeded to the place of gathering. On our way we met the Prime Minister 
^ some of the nobles going to the palaee; but the road was so thronged 
^ith Cairifltiafflis, that ^km bearers eotdd witti difficolty make their way

'^''^i^^il^oBtnmiCB were dvil andmilkary officers of IMi and 14t^ Honours, 

s 2 


officers of ihe palace wearing their pink ribbons, as well as others of lower 
rank, mingled with pastors, preachers, and deacons, followed by the whole 
bodj of the Christians, the men walking first and the women afterwards. 
Joining with them, we led the way to the palace, the general residence of the 
Queen. Here the Christians filled eyery ayailable spot of ground in front of 
the balustrade within which the royal seat was placed. The members of the 
royal family and officers were ranged on the left ; the ladies in waiting, the 
ministers and members of the €k>Temment, on the right. When the Queen* 
who looked remarkably well, came out of the palace, she was welcomed with 
hearty greetings from the vast assembly. As these subsided, several parties 
of singers sang what may be termed the National Anthem, and a hymn im- 
ploring the Divine blessing on the Queen. An officer then advanced a little 
in front of the rest, tendered the salutations of the Christians to her Majesty, 
and presented the customary hasina, which the Queen very cheerfully ac- 
knowledged. The choirs belonging to the several city congregations afterwards 
sang with good effect several hymns and anthems. Bainimamoi^isoa, an 
intelligent, gifted, and influential officer, also an aide-de-camp to the Prime 
Hinister, then stood forward, and, in the name of his fellow-Christians, 
addressed the Queen with much readiness and force, assuring her Majesty of 
their loyalty and gratitude for their privil^^, of their devotedness to the 
GhTvemment, and earnest desires to promote the welfare of all classes. The 
Queen made a short and approving reply, and by gestures as well as words 
assured the vast assembly of the satisfaction which their presence and the 
declaration of their attachment had afforded. The high officers and other 
members of the Court seemed surprised and pleased with the singiug of the 
Christiaiis; and after the latter had again sung the National Anthem, 
her Majesty rose, and re-entered the palace about twelve o'clock, amidst 
the cordial greetings of the multitude, who then returned to their respective 

" William Ellxs." 


" I will now supply you," writes Mr. Stagg, " with a brief account respect- 
ing my own particular sphere of labour — ^the cause of education, and my 
hopes and fears respecting it. I would have written more fully to you 
previously, but I deferred doing so till I could actually tell you I was in fall 
operation, and striving to accomplish as far as possible the work intrusted 
to me by the Directors. 

" The erection of the building took much longer than we had anticipated, 
and the difficulties that arose during its erection we could not foresee. 

" It was commenced just before the Revolution, so at the very outset the 
progress of the work was stayed for several weeks; then, again, I had 
much trouble in getting suitable men ; but at last aU these difficulties were 
overcome, and the building was completed, giving satisfeu^on to all of 
us, and much pleasure to the natives, who were glad once more to have a 
school in which their children might be educated under the guidance of a 

** The cost of the building is about £120, which includes the furniture, such as 

FOE APML, 1864. 77 

desks, forms, &c. Hie sum is more than we anticipated ; but we felt our 
£ri«nds in England would wish us to have a building that should be in every 
respect suitable for the education of the young, and also the training of 

** I am glad to say we haye the school now in full operation. At first I 
rather feared as to the result, for we had other schools already at work, and 
some of them were well attended : we had no wish to make either of the 
existing schools suffer, but rather to obtain children who were not receiying 
any education. 

"Then, again, the Catholic missionaries had commenced operations some 
eighteen months, having all the field open before them ; and we knew they 
had been very persevering in their endeavours to insure the attendance of 
the children of all classes, in which they [had succeeded to some extent. We 
cannot but commend their zeal, which has been unremitting. I believe they 
have now seven Catholic priests, and three sisters, who devote much of their 
time to the education of the young. They assert that we have all the adults 
and they all the children. Now whilst it is true we have all the adults, it is 
not true that they have all the children. 

«< Our regular attendance is about 150. Of that number there are about 50 
girls: the rest are boys. Hie school is large enough to accommodate 200. There 
has been a gradual increase since it was first opened. The children belong 
to all classes of the community, from the Prime Minister's son to the very 
poorest. It is purely a Mission School. We exclude none: we admit all, whether 
thor parents are Okrisitaiiromat. On the whole I have found the attendance 
of the children very regular, and their progress satisfactory. They seem very 
desirous to acquire knowledge, and willingly do any amount of work required 
of them. Of course we do not expect much from them at present, but their 
capacities are quite equal to children in our ordinary British schools. 

** Thinking it may be interesting, I will just give a sketch of our ordinary 
school work. We commence by praise and prayer, and then I often give a 
Bible lesson ; we then take the ordinary school lessons of reading, writing, 
spelling, and arithmetic. I have also given them a few lessons in the 
geography of the world, and also some bearing more particularly upon the 
land where our Saviour lived, laboured, and died. We use a Scripture Cate- 
chism likewise, which our friend Mr. Parrett has reprinted fr'om a copy which 
was in use here many years ago. I wish we had some good school-books in 
the langui^. There are many little treatises we should find most useful; 
but of course to give them to the people in their own language must be a work 
of time. 

" In accordance with the wish of the Directors I have endeavoiired to get 
together some young men desirous of acquiring the knowledge of teaching 
and who would be also ready, alter going through a course of study, to go to 
the surrounding towns and villages to become the teachers of the rising gene- 
ration in this large and important part of Madagascar. 

** In this department of my labours I have succeeded in obtaining several 
young men, who daily practise in the school, and to whom I give some time 
every day in those subjects which I consider will be useful to them in their 
fotore spheres. I wish I could give far more time to them ; but we must do

" Since I oommeuced with the Press in the middle of April," writes Mr- 
Parrett^ " I have printed a Catechism of 32 pages, and another of 38 pages, 
1000 copies of each, which have nearly all been ^old. I have also printed a 
set of 6 School Lessons, 200 of each ; some small matters for the Dispensary, 
and have nearly finished Russell's Catechism of 200 pages. I do not think 
that I have done much, but as this has been my starting year, I look upon it 
as something done. I have also three assistants, one pressman, and two 
compositors, and intend shortly to get three more, as I am likely to have 
plenty of work, for which I am very glad. 

" In coiy unction with Mr. Cousins I started a day school at the chapel at 
Amparib^ some six months since. This has prospered; at present there are 
eighty scholars, and a master and mistress. Tha teachers are supported 
principally by us, but the children all pay a trifle monthly. We also com- 
menced a Sunday school in connection with the chapel, of which I took the 
management The average attendance of children is seventy to eighty; and 
tbere is also a womens' Bible class in connection with the school, with some 
thirty or forty members. Sometimes, too, we manage to get a mens* Bible 
class, but not often. In addition to these, I often form a class of the slave 
boys and girls who hang about the cliapel during service time ; so that, from 
one source and another, I obtain 140 to 150 attendants at the Sabbath school^ 
fi^ch is a very fair beginning.

OiTB readers will have learnt from the daily journals that the Sovereign and 
(Government of Madagascar have sent to this country two distinguished nobles 
with a view of submitting to our (Government some modifications in the treaty 
of friendship and commerce formed by the late King, both with England and 
France. The names of the envoys are RiiNiFiBiKoiAy 15th Honour, and 
EAIKAin>BIAirAKI>BIAKA, 14th HonouT. 

They have been very favourably received by Eail Eussell, as Minister for 
Foreign Affidrs; and by her Majesty the Queen, the Prince of Wales, and 
several members of the nobility and of the legislature. 

We encourage the hope that the peaceful object of their visit may be 
accomplished, which would greatly conduce to the commercial interests of 
Madagascar, as well as to the general prosperity of the country. 

The following letter of introduction to the envoys was addressed to the 
Directors by the undersigned Kative Christians : —

by tidings of success in our missionary work, I am happy to be able to. report 
the baptism of another young Brahmin. 


" Shoshy Bhushen MuEElurBit i*«fiwenteen years of age. By the example 
of his father and mother he became an idolater ; though, like the majority of 
the youths in and near Caljcutto,. he had. but little faith in idolatry. Still he 
repeated his mantra, worshipped the gpd» aiMl goddesses^ S^ Duxga, 
Mr^yan, Shib, Hari, Lakhmi, and others, and occasionally made offerings 
at the temple of K&li, and besmeared his body with mud in honour of Hari. 

" About eight years ago he entered the* Government school at Howrah, and 
read there until the olose of 1861. lb Jluntaiiy, Id^, be entered our Mission 
School at Behala, and read there throughout that year. In the Behala School 
he had to read the Bible azid ihe Eyidences of Ohristianity ae claBs-bodcB, 
and, he soon felt i^t Hindooism was false and, ChxiBtiaait)'i taiie. As the 
truth entered his mind he j6alt anxious to giire up idolatry, whiohJie did* ezce^t 
on public occasions, when he was compelled to bow before the image*. 


"^n January 1868' he entered' the- Free Church Institution iii C^utta, 
where he also ha<J to read Ute Bible in class. X7nder-the teaching of the mis-

I advised him to wait some montiis, and' promised' iir tfee meantime to givo^ 
him religious instruction. On his determination becoming known to relatives 
and' neighbours, there was a great commotion ;• many scholars were removed^ 
from the Behala School, and he was immediately taken awajrfinm t&e' Free 
Church Institution and sent to the Calcutta €<!>lloge, an institution esta* 
blished by the Deists. He was beaten and threatened^ but nothing shook his 
resolution. Ih hia sharpest trials he declared hihaself a Christian, and called* 
on Christ for hel^. As opportunity offlered through the year, he sought in* 
struction from Surjyo Baboo, myself, and others; and when difficulties were 
suggested by the Deists, or when atheistical books were given hiin to read, 
he always sought help from one or other of his Christian teachers: Twice 
during the year he threw off his ^-poiia/ the Bi-ahmins^' sacred' thread, and 
declared that he would not wear the sign of a ftilse religion. The fit*st time 
he remained without it about a fortnight, but put it on again at the solicita- 
tions of his relatives. The second time he was without it fbr two months, 
and refused to put it on until they beet him, and then he yiijldedt His fiither 
asked him, * Do you wish to remain at my house ?* saying, * If so, the "poita "^ 
is my religion, and you must- wear it.'

prevented from accompanying the Brethren who entered upon that disastrous 
enterpriise^ he remained for a season at Kuruman. Subseq[uently, he took up 
a position at the Bamangwaio — midway betAveen the Kuruman and the

<* Injati, September, 1863. 

^ Dbab Sis,— My last to yon, wntten in July, a few days after our departure 

from the Bamangwato, will have informed you of the reasons which influenced 

uaito undertake a jommey into the Matebele country, and I now int^id to 

giro j9fBk some acoomnt of my recepiioa by Moselekatse^ and n^y^^j^i^^^ons of 



" It is the coBtom to annomice to MoselekatBe the arriyal at his oa<^K>8t8 of 
any strangers or travellers. Accordingly, on the Monday after our arriyal at 
the Batalaonta, three men were despatched to inform Moselekatse of the 
return of Mr. John Moffat, accompanied by another missionary, who had come 
to see the king and his friends the milBsionaries at Inyati. We fonnd that 
great stress was laid by the Batalaonta on the fa<st that I had been at Sekomi's 
dnring the late war — ^in fact, that I was to be ' announced ' to the king as 
' Sekomi's missionary.' While not caxing to hide my connection with the 
Bamangwato, I ^ideavonred to impress on their minds that I had been only 
one year at Sekomi's ; that I had come from Engknd at the same time as the 
Matebele missionaries, and that I waa one with them in entire neutrality in 
all political matters. I learned afterwards, however, that my explanations were 
given in vain — all that reached the ear of the chief being that Yonie (Mr. 
Moffat) was coming, accompanied by Sekomi's missionary. 

« Taking it for granted that Moselekatse would admit us, we did not wait 
at Mahuku's for an answer, as is'sometimes done, but slowly followed in the 
rear of our messengers. After passing through in this way the beautiful 
Makalaka countiy, as it is called, we entered the Matebele territory proper^ 
now having as escort, or spy, a Uckaga, or warrior, whose train was on the 


" The messengers from Moselekatse met us one morning, before we had 
inspanned, near to Boherehere river. After saluting us, the principal man 
began to give us the ' mouth ' of the king. First of all came a great number 
of questions concerning myself, summed up by ' The king wishes to know 
what you want in his countiy P' After being catechised for some time in 
this manner, the messenger began, not without some conftision, to deliver the 
decision of his master. It was astoimding, after having answered so many 
questions, put by order of Moselekatse, to be given to understand that the 
king had already made up his mind, and that I was commanded to return; 
that the king did not wish to see me. On inquiring into the use and wont of 
the thing, Mr. Moffat informed me that it was quite customary to examine 
people in this way, and yet, no matter what their answers might be, wind up 
the conversation summarily by announcing the previously formed decision of 
the chief. My friends were further of opinion that, although my position was 
not altogether hopeless as to obtaining admission into the country, yet it was, 
nevertheless, nearly so, inasmuch as Moselekatse was veiy seldom known to 
change his mind. Although I might have returned at once, having ascertained 
that the missionary friends at Inyati were all in good health, I confess I felt 
a strong disinclination to do so. In the first place, I did not like the indignity 
of being sent about one's business in so summaiy a manner ; but, above that, 
I felt it would tend to enhance our character amongst the natives, who are all 
suspicious, were missionaries able to pass over at pleasure from one contend- 
ing party to another. 

" We were given to understand, on inquiry, that one of the men was to 
return to the king with our explanations; so Mr. Moffat and myself set our- 
selves to the task of explaining to him our views and plans, in so fiur as we 

FOB APIUL^ 1864* 85 

deemed necessajry — ^reiterating the salient pointa, so as to impress them on 
liis mind. We fonnd the messengers Yery respectful and well disposed — 
indeed, we oould understand that it was their wish that I should be admitted. 
Ifr. ICoffat was struck with the improvement for the better, which had taken 
place during his absence, in the outward behaviour of the Matebele. In the 
course of our conversation, we learned some of the remarks which had fEillen from 
the old chief when he heard that ' Sekomi's teacher was coming.' Pointing 
to some cows in his cattle-pen, which had been stolen from the Bamangwato, 
Moeelekatse jocularly called' to his attendants to hasten and nulk some of 
Sekomi's cows for Sekomi's missionary, ' for he must be hungry after so long 
a journey.' ' Why, if I admit this man, he will see eveiything in the countiy, 
and then return and inform Sekomi.' ' Well, really,' said a puzzled wife, 
sitting near, ' what crimes do these white men commit, which cause them to 
flee from their own country in this way P' 

" Being without water at the place where we received the king's message, 
Mr. Moffat suggested that we go forward, and wait at the first water for the 
final decision. To this the machaga agreed, although with reluctance, being 
evidently unwilling to allow me to advance without the king's consent. As to 
Mr. Moffat, they said it was^understood that he would proceed at once, inas- 
much as he was ' going home ;' but Mr. Moffat declining to do so, we spent 
the interval together at the river Kumalo. 

" On Friday afternoon the messenger returned from the king, his feet and 
l^s covered with dust, but with a smOing countenance. Moselekatse's answer 
now was, that ' I was to come on; but where was my present to him, and that 
of Mr. J. Moffat P He had not seen them.' We reached the camp of Mosele- 
katse on Monday afternoon, but did not see the king till next morning. He 
was not living in a town, but at the foot of a mountain not far from a village 
called Seeenteve. His four waggons were drawn up near to each other; 
behind these were the temporaiy huts of his harem and servants, closed in by 
a hedge of thorn branches; and in front a large pen for cattle, and another 
for sheep and goats. Such were the * quarters ' in which we found the king 
of tbe Matebele, and thus he spends the greater portion of the year. As in 
other things, his movements seem to be guided by caprice. After living for 
some time at a place, suddenly the order is issued to pack the waggons and 
yoke the oxen, and before all the attendants know whither they are going, the 
waggons are moving, and the temporaiy huts left in a blaze. 


" And now for my reception by Moselekatse. After passing the little huts 
and the waggons, we were shown into the sheep-pen, at the door of which sat 
a number of tnachaga, A fire had been placed in the middle of the pen, and 
near to this, seated in an old-fashioned arm-chair, the gift of Mr. Moffat, sat 
Moselekatse. As we advanced, we got each a warm and rather lengthy shake 
of the hand, the attendants shouting lustily, ' Great King,' ' Man-eater,' &c. 
On* taking our places on the ground, opposite the arm-chair, we had a frOl 
view of the object of this praise, and saw an old, frtul man — so frail that he has 
to be carried about by his wives, and whose only clothing then consisted of 
an English blanket brought loosely round his loins, and a naval officer's cap 


on his HeacL Aaot cUdt greafc^coai, tiie original ookmrof windit was to ma 
matter of spaecdation, serredL afr a fbots^vdL and iia» renraved iviAii tile dtair 
wheof the king desired to change his position. One oonid not help lo<^ing 
with peeuiiar fbelings on the oonntenanoe of* a man ifhose ivhc^- career ha» 
'beoi so bloody and so suoceasfiiL His features are still indicative o£ inMli*- 
gence and force of character, while at tbe same time expressions oooaatonaUy 
flit across them which help n» to reaiioe that we are in the presence of one 
who coxdd listen nnmored to the voice of justice or msDOj. No notice was 
taken of the two great-ooats which we had sent on the previbns dagir, bnt im«> 
mediate application was made f6r additional ' help/ as the Matebele cxpross 
it. However, our reception, on the whole, was graoions enough as things gp , 
here. H« seemed to lose sight of my connection with Sekomi, and reoogmsed' 
me as a missionarj from Esmman or England, the difllbrence or distance 
between these places not being very dearly nnderstood> by the Mutebele. 


" Not having an opportanity of speaking to the king in private, I resolved 
to postpone the introdnction of the subject of the war with Sekomi ; for any 
public criticism of his policy would not be at all calculated, to produce bene- 
ficial results. Moselekatae has been noted for the hospitable custom of de- 
taining visitors long after the time when ihey desire to depart. But, lung*. 
sickn^S' having considerably diminished the quantity of beef at his disposal 
visitDrs are no longec guests, fed at the king's expense ; and in our own case, 
after a stay of two days, the chiefs politely expressed reluctance at our de- 
pautnie was fully met by the promise of an early visit after we had seen our 
friends ail Iigrati, "V^ hoped then to have an opportrmity of speaking to the 
king on the subject of the war with the Bamangwato ; but we could not 
reasonably hope for much success, inasmuch as no one has ever succeeded in 
peoBuading Moselekatse to give up hij» warlike pursuits. Xt was at one time 
fondly imagined that such a result had been obtained ; but a very short re- 
sidence in the country convinced our Brethren that this belief was altogether 
unfounded. Since your missionaries came into this country, only on^e year 
has passed unmarked by. the 'departure of the Matebele forces against the 
nfttive tribes to the Bast, North-east, and North ; and during that exceptional 
year, if they were not <m^^ed in a foreign war, the Matebele were occupied 
in slaughtering one another. Interest was brought to bear with the king 
against Monyebe, the greatest friend of the missionaries, and most powerftil 
man, next to the chief, in the country. He was accused of witchcraft, and 
put to deaih with all his house. Such being the past history of the Matebele, 
even since their connection with missionaries, we could not be very sanguine 
as to the result of our efforts to deter the king from prosecuting the war with 
the Bamangwato.. However, we resolved to do oiur best. 


'^We reached Inyati on Saturday, 29th August, when we had the pleascore 
of meeting wilh our dear friends Mr. Thomas, and Mr. and Mrs. Sykes. This 
X^eaeure, however, had its sad alloy in the absence oi Mrs. Thomas. All we 
could see of hw, except in the features of her two little boys, was her grore. 
However, she is with Qod^ and donbtless feete no regret either- thai she

scomlxilly or fearfhBy alboA At the same time, I am happy to be able to 
taatify to the change which is gradually taking place in the mindb of the 
l&tebele towards missionaries. Received four years ago with the utmost 
suspicion, they are now trusted throughout the country, but more especiaDy 
mihe ncighbouriiood of^Inyati, where they^are best known. The overbearing 
lumglrianess with which they were at first treated by all classes, and the brow- 
beaiting and rudeness which they had to submit to from many, have now given 
pfiice in; most oases to respect. T have had an opportunity of visiting the 
three out-stations in connection with Inyati, which the Brethren visit weekly 
for the purpose of preaching the Gospel to the people. The whole population 
which thus comes under the constant influence of missionari'es is some 700 or 
800, while of these about KO constitute the number of hearei*s at the fi)ur 
stations on any given week. Repeated attempts have been made in the way 
of teaching the young, but hitherto without success. Learning to read seems 
to be regarded by the people with fear ; they are not sure how Moselekatse 
would regard such a movement. The work of your agents, therefore, has hitherto 
bten, ta>ai groai- eKtenfc, ofi a preparatory nature. They have had to eradicate 
many weeds* slowdy and patiently, beft>re they, could sow the good seed of tiie 
Gospel. However,, the Word of Qod cannot now be said to be* bound '"in 
3&tebele Land; it is^ preached regularly, asd in the language of the country: 
And, joflt a» the life and ooiwera«tion of the missionaries slowly disarmed the 
people of suapiisiiQin and diaLike^ so the 'little loaveiL' of heavenly truth, now 
being introduced into thair minda# caxmot possibly remain long inert and un- 
observable. The evil, however, is emphatically a bad one. The training of the 
Matebele^ tdraor hahits of- plunder and: bk>odshed, and their social usages, 
all ccanbine in direot oppoaU^iont to the> requirements of ChristiiEuiity. Your 
agents are laboivrijag amongst a population, l^e male portion of which has 
been gathered .frouLall^ tribes; knows little or nothing of home or kindred ; 
hves in barracks; robs and slaughters at least once every yearj without 
refarence to sex. or age ;. and knows no law but that of the king; The females 
are also the children oT nearly all the surrounding tribes, and, as sulgecta of 
the Gospel, are as unpromising as the men, if not more so. These things are 
mentioned for the- purpose of showing that the difficidties of the field are of no 
ordinary description ; and that, considering the anwunt of opposition and 



iU-feding wMch haa been overcome, the Directors and friends of the Societ j 
have good reaaon to be thankful and hopeful. 


*' When I left Bamangwato, I promised Mr. Price to return in the course 
of the summer, provided Mr. and Mrs. Sykes were in such health as to enable 
them to carry on the duties of this station, in conjunction with Mr. and Mrs. 
Moffat. It was understood that only one inducement ought to detain me in 
thecoimtry — ^the permission of Moselekatse to occupy a new district as afield 
of missionary labour. While my oxen are resting, I shall endeavour to find 
out the views of some of the head men on this subject ; and should I find that 
they are decidedly opposed to the establishment of a s^arate station, I shall 
not make the request formally of the king. Should I meet with encourage- 
ment, however, and in the end obtain from the king a suitable place for a 
new station, I think the Directors will agree with my Brethren here, and 
with myself, that it would be of importance not to neglect such an opening. 
At the same time, rather than attempt to force the matter, and rather than 
wait on, doing next to nothing, in the hope that a more favourable time may 
come, I conceive it will be my duty to return to the Bamangwato, which is 
at any rate a riper field than the Matebele country, and where I can resume 
direct and encouraging labours, which were interrupted by the present 

**I remain, 

**Ever yours truly, 

" Rev. Db. Tidman." (Signed) " John McKbnzib.

On the near completion of the Seventh Decade of the Society's history, we- 
cannot but be forcibly impressed by the wonderful changes that have trans- 
pired since it commenced its labours. At the close of the last century, the 
Kissionary Enterprise was yet in its infancy, and the few devoted men whose 
zeal prompted them to go forth to the heathen were met by the taunts and 
opposition of an unbelieving world, and, in too many instances, by the faint 
and unsympathizing commendations of professed Christians. But now the 
state of things is happily reversed ; governments have become friendly to the 
cause of Missions ; sceptics have been confounded by the spectacle of numerous 
tribes of men converted and civilized by means of the Gospel; and the 
Christian Churches, aroused from their lethargy, have sent forth from their 
midst hundreds of the messengers of mercy to heathen lands. And, while 
thus .imparting light and life to the souls of others, these Churches have been 
amply compensated by the showers of blessing that have descended upon 
their own fair heritage. 

The record of the Society's operations during the past year in India, in 
China, in Madagascar, and in other parts of the heathen world, as detailed in 
the following pages, cannot fail to interest and gratify every thoughtful and 
benevolent reader. The various meetings and services peculiar to our time- 
honoured festival have been very numerously attended, and on no former 
occasion have the friends and supporters of the Society evinced a more lively 
and intelligent interest in the cause of Missions, or a deeper sense of their 
obligation to help it forward by their prayers, their ^orta^ ^^^^^J^^^^"

The CmAiuuAft said, — Ladies and Gentlemen, I beg to assure yon that I am deeply 
sensflile of the hoaoor which you hava conferred npoa me by placing me in the chair on the 
pic scat oocasieo. At the same time I oaa ako asaore ]K>o that I feel the solemnity of the 
procee&ngs in which we are now ahoot to be eng a g ed, as well as the responsibility of every 
persoB who joins in them. Fortunately the weric m, which this great Society is occupied 
d^>ends in no degree, or, at all events, only in a very small one, upon anything that the 
Cbairmsn may utter at an Anniversary Mealiag ; and I am glad of it, because the duties 
which are issfosed upon the chair, a»d which I shall mom attempt to discharge, consist 
psrtly in making a few obsenratians preiatesy to the great businesa which lies belbce us lor 
transafliina That business is to learn firora the Report the history of the Sottet/s doings 
daring the year which has just terminated. I have had the advantage of seeing that doc«- 
ment; bnt I can asane yen, ladies and gentkmeni and I can also assure those who are to 
eoBse alter me, and whose duty it will be to place before you more oonspiciously the facts 
Hurraied in that dooumemt, that it is not my intention to allude in the slightest degree to 
any feature of the Report. Indeed, I tiiink I sbonkl he setting a very bad example if I were 
to eonmenee by doing that which I hope wiU not be done in the course of this Meeting—' 
namely, trespassing osi the province of s not h cr speaker* I venture, with great humility, to 
make this rtnwffc a* tiie outset, becaHse if that nk» wsie observed on all ooeasions of this 
nature, the charge of tedionsaess, which ia aanistimes made againet these meetings, would 
ham BO HMuidation whatever. Now my tiia«f hks, and I dare say years else, ladies and 
geatlemeB, are tmveUing backwards otver the year thad has passed since yon last assembled 
fai this hall at the Annual Meeting ol the L aa d sn Missienary Society. Mine travel back a 
Mttie farther than that. Now that I find mQpaelf, humUe iadivtdaal as I am, in this con- 
spieuoas sitaation, my mind travela back ta the time when by your faveor I oecapied this 
post before. I canaot help ree o Uectatg the immease crowd that assembled oa that occa^ 
sion, when this hall^ which is weU filled indeed aow,. was Utorally crammed ; when every 
feee in that vaat space which noai lies befoae me was Uflnmed towards this platform, and 
when every eye waa fixed oa the feim of eaa qaiet^ animpessieeed, imperturbable conn-

sphere of perpetual danger, he ahonld still be preserved to us when so many have perished — 
the name of Dr. Livingstone reminds me strongly of the great principles on which this 
Society is based. I always feel when I come to an Annual Meeting of this Society that I 
am breathing the purest religious atmosphere that I breathe in the course of the year. 
However much the jarring discord of religions opinions may be heard elsewhere, here it is 
left behind, here it is hushed, here no denominational differences can enter. I believe that 
the only question that is asked when a person presents himself for employment under the 
auspices of this association is this — ** Do you believe in your heart, and confess with your 
mouth, that the Lord Jesus is the Son of God, and that He died to save mankind ?" I 
believe that that is the only question which is absolutely necessary ; and, having myself 
been engaged for many years in discussing what are called ** terms of subscription,*' this I 
will say, that if I had my own way — I am afraid I shall not have it — ^those are the only 
terms of subscription which I, when I am an archbishop, shall venture to propose. 
Turning again to Dr. Livingstone, let me ask you to observe how your adndrable principle 
of foundation has fructified ? how through Dr. Livingstone himself it has touched a part 
which probably you hardly contemplated, and has thus conferred a benefit upon the Mis- 
sionary cause, which certainly I did not myself anticipate. I believe that the predilectiona 
of Dr. Livingstone are rather of a Presbjrterian character. But did he, when he came to 
England to stir up the hearts of his fellow-countrymen, confine himself to going amongst 
those who agreed precisely and dogmatically on every point with himself? Far from it ; 
he went to the two great Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, to preach tole- 
ration and impartiality there. And see what good that did, how the spirit of liberality 
was stirred up in those two great Universities to which we must all look up — I am sure 
all present do so— with respect. A Nonconformist was, at the period to which I 
allude, received with open arms by both Universities, and he stirred up the Missionary 
spirit to such an extent that it was really quite delightful to hear or read the speeches that 
were made, and to observe the enthusiasm that was evoked. As regards the Missions which 
followed, although we cannot but deeply lament the failure of one of them, with which 
Dr. Livingstone himself was more especially connected, yet at the same time we cannot but 
thank God and take courage ; ay, and let me add that we ought to feel grateful to the 
founders of the London Missionary Society for the liberal principles which they adopted, 
and which have been the foundation of so'mnch good. Let me say one or two worda more 
before I sit down. It has often been asked, ** Why do you send Missionaries abroad when 
you have so many heathens at home ?'' Well now, I think that taunt is in some respecta 
well founded. But in whose mouth do we find it ? Why, we find it in the mouth of thoae 
who, if you look through the list of contributions to this great society and other institutional 
you will find subscribing neither to Missions abroad nor to Missions at home. The answer 
which I should give to a gainsayer of that description is, not that there is injustice in the 
taunt, because I am one of those who think that we should begin at home — ^the answer, I 
say, which I should be inclined to give to such a person is this — '* These things ought ye to 
have done, and not to leave the other undone.*' I do, from the bottom of my heart, thank 
God — at least for my own |communion, and I believe I may say the same for other com- 
munions too— that we have at last got a prelate in the diocese of London who seems to 
have risen to a full understanding of his responsibilities in this matter, and who is now 
endeavouring that this reproach may be vHped away from us ; not simply by saying, '* We 
must have everything in the Church of England," but by trying to encourage all denomina- 
tions who " hold the Head," and wish to do their duty as he is striving to do his, and as we 
laymen are, I hope, aiming at doing ours, to make one common effort that the reproach 
to whfch I have alluded may now and for ever be removed. Shall I say a word about the 
discussions with regard to that sacred Book which we put into the hands of our Mission- 
aries, and which has been carried fwr and wide, we hope, with saving and healing power on

its wingi to tbe attermost parts of the earth ? I think I hardly oeed do to. At the same 
time I would uk. Where are the gainsayers now ? Where are those who would endeavour to 
destroy onr ftdth, and to steal from benighted nations that which alone can give them light, 
and life, and hope ? I am happy to think that at all erents we have not been ** frighted 
from onr propriety ;" that we had too much confidence in the Book and its doctrines to be 
hnnried away from it or alarmed. I very much regret the sort of hard names that were 
flcmg at those who happened to take peculiar tiews on this subject. I dislike that mode 
of warfisre in a prudential point of Tiew. Hard words will convince nobody, but they will 
make men harder to convince. Language which sympathizes with the objector while it 
confutes his objection, that is the language which I would have used towards those who 
diiVer from us. Let us, my friends, not b^ frightened by objections. If the Book, with 
the tenets which we derive from it, will not bear the most searching criticism, let us give it 
up at once. Do not let us be so cowardly as to suppose that the Bible will not bear human 
criticism. It has borne it for hundreds of years, and it vnll bear it to all eternity. I will 
not dwell on this subject any longer ; I will merely say that the wave is now fast receding ; 
that although it vras like a noisy breaker on the shore, there was in it no real strength ; 
and that I trust that very soon that disturbed wave will have given place to a gentle ripple, 
until at last nothing will be seen but the calm swell of the central ocean. I must not, my 
friends, trespass any further on your attention. Missionary work is a very tempting theme, 
and there are so many great names connected with the London Missionary Society that one 
almost feels u if one did not do justice to the Society in not alluding to them. I aro not 
going to do so, having only time to indicate the feelings which occupy my mind on this 
occasion ; but this I will say before sitting down, that so long as South Africa exists — so 
long as the islands of the Pacific Ocean exist— so long as the names of Livingstone and 
Williams and Moffat, and many others which do not occur to my mind at this moment, 
are remembered — so long as there is any true religious feeling in England — so long as there 
is any true sense of that deep responsibility which the Imperial Qovemment throws upon 
the nation as regards the spread of Christianity in the world, so long as there is any grati- 
tude to the men who have lived, and suffered, and died in the cause of Christ — so long will 
the name of the London Missionary Society be borne aloft in the hands and hearts of all 
The Rev. Dr. Tidman, (Foreign Secretary) then read the Report. 

Thb history of the Society for the year now to be reported adds to the accumulated and 
conclusive evidence of former years, that, for the successful progress of that glorious cause 
which it labours to advance, our hope and trust must rest on God alone. Events have 
recently occurred in Madagascar in painful contrast to our sanguine expectations ; and in 
many islands of the South Pacific, on which the light of heavenly mercy had begun to 
shine, armed bands of robbers and murderers have assailed the peaceful and defenceless 
people, torn them from their kindred and their homes, and carried them to strange and 
distant lands, where they are toiling in slavery, or daily dying in their bondage. These sad 
events of the year remind us that our brightest prospects may be suddenly overcast, and that 
oar anticipated sources of joy may become the occasion of our bitterest disappointment. 

During the year also the Directors have had to mourn over the removal by death of five 
devoted Missionaries, and four faithful women associated with them in Missionary labours. 
The Rev. Alexander Irvine, appointed to Polynesia, was not permitted to see the 
island where he hoped to spend a long life of service for his Saviour ; he was arrested on 
his way by disease, and died at Sydney, six months after his departure from England. The 
Ret. William Howe, for seventeen years our faithful and indefatigable agent in Tahiti, 
worn out by labour and anxiety, sunk into the arms of death in the island of Rarotonga, on 
the 9th of June. Thither he had proceeded in the " John Williams," on his way to 


Aufttraligy where it w«s hoped, after the heat and burden of the day, he might have enjc^ed 
a clear and quiet evening ; but the gracious Master, vhom he had so long and faithfully 
served, took him to that better country on which the sun never sets. His sound praotioal 
wisdom, united with uncompromising fidelity and the purest benevolence, secured for kim, 
even from the French authorities in Tahiti, respect and confidence ; and when the tidings 
of his death reached that island, the sorrow of the Queen, and of all classes of the peofle, 
was intensA. The Rev. T. S. Hood and the Rev. William Ross, both veterans in South 
Africa, died in peace and honour at their posts of labour, the former on the 24th of May, 
and the latter on the 30th of July. The Rev. Robeut Wilson^ one of the first Protestant 
Missionaries to Hankow, after two years' labour in that mighty Chinese city, fell a victim to 
cholera on the 11th of AugnsL Although his^ course was short, he had, by exemplary 
dih'gence, overcome the difficulties of the colloquial Chinese, and was able to preach the 
glad tidings of salvation to the people in their own tongue ; and on his sudden removal the 
Native Chrifitians, with his own countrymen, and other foreign residents in Hankow, 
foUc^wed him to the grave, and rendered to his mourning widow and her fatherless infants 
generous proofs of their respect and sympathy. 

The loss among our female friends in India has also been unusually great. Mas. Asburt 
of Mirzapore, and Mbs. Jones of Benares, Mrs. Bay lis of Travaneore, and Mrs. Ricb of 
Bangalore, have all been called by their Divine Saviour to enter into rest. The former 
two, as it was hoped, were only entering on the service of their Lord ; but Mrs. Bajlis had 
spent fourteen years, and Mrs. Rice twenty-seven years in the Mission field, during which 
they had diligently united with their husbands in labours of love, especially in efforts for 
the social and religious improvement of their own sex. 

But, while we mourn over this record of mortality, it is a demand for thankfolness to 
the Divine Head of the Church that He has enabled the Society to send forth other 
labourers to occupy the places of those who have fallen. During the year five new agents 
have gone forth to Madagascar : the Revs. Julius Kessler, R. G. Hartley, Benjamin 
Briggs, and John Pearse, vfith Mr. James Sibree; Mr«e,the Revs. R. J. Thomas and Jamea 
Williamson, with Dr. Dudgeon, to China ; the Rev. H. C. Williamson to Jamaica ; and 
the Rev. Thomas Carter to Berbice. In the course of the ensuing autumn they also 
anticipate the gratification of sending forth six additional agents to India : two to Soxtth 
Africa, ttpo to the West Indies, <me to Madagascar, and one to China. The total 
number of the Society's Missionaries, when thus reinforced, will amount to One hundred 
and eeventy-nx; with upwards of six hundred native agents, including evangeliats, 
catechists, and schoolmasters. 

T In the month of May last the Society was deprived by death of its estimable Treasurer, 
Sir Culling Bardlet Eardlet, Bart., who had sustained the office with great kindness 
and generosity for nearly twenty years. He died in the midst of an active and useful life, 
devoted to benevolence and religion ; and on the mournful occasion the Directors expressed 
their high sense of his worth and usefulness in the following terms : — 
** Resolved, — 

*< That, in receiving the announcement of the decease of their late Treasurer, Sir 
Culling Eardley Eardley, Bart., the Directors record with mournful pleasure their 
high sense of his distinguished Christian character, and of his unwearied and 
generous exertions in promoting the interests of religion, beaevolenoe, and 
freedom. But especially the Directors bear their grateful testimony to the many 
kind and valuable services rendered by their departed friend as the Treasurer of 
this Society, during the extended period of nearly twenty years, in which he 
sustained that office. 
'* That the Directors beg to convey to the family of Sir Culfing Eardley Eardley, Bart.^ 
the assaranee of their siBoere sympathy and Christian ooadolsnce, trusting tfaac, 
under this solemn and afflictive bereavement, they may be sustained fa^ the 
promises of the Holy Scriptures, and the grace of the Divine Spirit.''

The Directors are truly thankful to tt«te thtt, at their earnest invitation, the Hon. 
Arthur KiMfi^AiRD, M.P., has consented to undertake the vacant office; and Uuy {gbL 
assured that their constituents universally will Ughly agppraoiate the kindaeat of Mr. 
KiiHwtrdf mmI receive his services with sincere thankfulness and entire satisfaction.

After prolonged consideration and repeated conference between the Directors both of 
Town and Country, it was unanimously resolved, in October, 1861, to establish an Insfi- 
tntion in which the Students of the Society might spend the last year of their academical 
course in Btudies peculiar to Mittionary life and labour. The course for the year includes 
the contiBBed study of the Sacred Scriptures in the originala; the principles and history of 
Christian lliaftions both ancient and modern; the acquisition of at least the elements 
of the several languages in which the Missionary is hereafter to exercise his ministry; 
and the attainment, when desirable, of the principiea and practice of surgery and medicine. 
In addmion to thait advantages, tht Miaaionary elemant pervades and charaoterixes the 
eatire engagemaiCs of the IsfttJtution in a degree not otherwiae to be scoured ; aad tbe

In no section of the Mission field is the increasing power and extending progress of the 
Gospel more striking and impressive than among the varions tribes of the Soath Pacific 
Islands. In the social and moral transformation of thousands and tens of thousands of these 
islanders from savages and murderers to loving husbands, tender fathers, and peaceful neigh- 
bours, we find living illustrations of prophetic imagery : '< Instead of the thorn shall come 
up the fir-tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle-tree : and it shall be to the 
Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off." 

Every successive year brings fresh tidings of these marvellous achievements of redeeming 
power and grace ; and, whereas our fathers bore a protracted night of toil before they be- 
held the dawn and gathered the first-fruits, the labourers of our own time find many of 
those distant isles waiting for God's law ; and, after a comparatively short course of faith 
and labour, the little one becomes a thousand, and the small one a strong nation. 

This accelerated progress of the Gospel must be ascribed, under the Divine blessing, to 
the wonderful and blessed change it has accomplished in many islands on which the shadow 
of death once rested — ^to the conviction of the natives, even in their ignorance, that the Mis- 
sionary comes to their country, not as other white men often come, to kill and to destroy, 
but to elevate, instruct, and save — and, above all, to the initiatory labours of Native Evan- 
gelists, who carry in themselves the evidence of its power and grace, and who are able to 
say to the ignorant, the base, and the cruel, *< We were even as yourselves. Come with us, 
and we will do you good, and lead you to that Saviour who has redeemed us, and will 
redeem you from misery and death.'' 

The following short extract from the letter of a Native Evangelist in the Island of Mar6, 
addressed to the Rev. George Gill, his former Missionary, evinces the qualification of these 
native labourers, and the success with which God crowns their labours : — 

'* Mar^, January, 1864. 
** To Mr. and Mrs. George Gill. 

'* May the blessings of life and salvation from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ be 
yours, and the portion also of your children. 

" Great is the loving compassion of my heart towards you— it is like the love of a child 
towards its father far away. 

*'The word of God is growing greatly in this dark land; many there are who have come 
on the side of Jesus, plucked from the hand and power of Satan ; so that it may be truly 
said, ' The work of our hands is established in this land.' 

" Many have been baptized in the name of Jesus — many are seeking life for their souls in 
Christ — many have forsaken the paths of sin and vice : the work has been with tears and 
sorrow in the planting, but now it is joy and sweetness in the budding. 

" I am living at the Station of Mr. Jones, as a helper in the work of our Lord. 

'* The work is one, as you well know, and the joy is one ; planting the seed, and waiting 

FOR JUNE, 1864. 161 

for fniit ; and what is this ? It is the enlightening; of the heart of man hj the word of the 
Goapel which we teach, and which they love ; and great is our joy and comfort to know 
their faith in the Loird. We work, and put all the work, which is all His, into His own 
hand. ' He must give the increase/ He must make it grow and enlarge it 

" The zeal of His servants in this land is great, strengthened by His great love. 

'* Here is another word I ha?e to say — Many of the heathen from the inland villages 
have come to receive the Word of God. During the year 1863 there were four heathen 
chiefs who, with their people and tribes, were wiUing so to be taught. 

** Here is another word I have to say — ^The Missionaries have established a School for 
Native Teachers in this land. This indeed is a great good that has been made to grow in 
tiiia land, to teach them wisely the word of tru& 

" Here is another word — ^The kings, chiefs, and governors, have established laws for the 
rale of this land — for the punishment of evil-doers, for the dread and terror of the hearts 
of men who are obdurate and unbelieving, and it may be a blessing for many. We already 
thank God for the order in this land. 

*' We are now very busy in building a stone house, and are teaching the heathen how to 
work in this kind of work : they are very ignorant of this kind of work for the body, as 
they are of the better work for their spirits. We are teaching them how to work in wood 
— to saw wood, to plane wood, and to nail wood ; to build houses of stone and other kind 
of houses. But you know how few tools we have, and how unskilful ignorant and heathen 
people are. A few, however, are doing very well; but great is our compassion towards 
them here, and great is our joy when we see their ignorance and darkness enlightened. 

" This is aU I have now to say. I have written in great haste, because the ship is in a 
great hurry. May the blessings of life and salvation be with you aU. 

(Signed) '• Taka." 

In no Missionary field has the apostolic counsel to Timothy been more diligently carried 
out than by our brethren in Polynesia : " The things which thou hast heard of me, the 
same commit thou to faithful men, who may be able to teach others also ;" and the happy 
results are now seen in the successful labours of Native Evangelieia, by whom the Gospel 
has been carried to distant islands, and to tribes sitting in darkness and the shadow of 
death ; and, but for the courage and constancy, the Christian teaching and the holy example 
of these humble and devoted servants of the Lord Jesus, thousands and tens of thousanda 
who now rejoice in the light and liberty of Christ would have sat beneath death's dark 
shadow until the present hour. It has therefore been a primary object with the Directors 
for many years to sustain in full efficiency the several Institutions for training Native 
Christians of tried character and suitable talents for Missionary service ; and they are 
thankful to state that these Institutions were never in greater efficiency than at the present 
time. In the Institution in the Island of TAHAAthere are now Twenij/'Six etudents. In 
the Institution of Rarotonga, Eighteen, In Samoa, Eighiy-eighi. Total, One hundred 
and thirty-two. 

The ^enercd character of the Native Churches, especially when we consider the former 
mental and moral degradation of the converts, is equally gratifying and surprising ; and in 
the exhibition of many features of Christian life they supply useful lessons to ourselves. 
Especially, their zeal and liberality in the support and extension of the Gospel, compared 
with their limited resources, is marvellous ; and this must be admitted by all when they 
learn that the contributions of the Polynesian Churches for the year, partly in money and 
partly in native produce, exceed in value £1900. 

It must not, however, be supposed that the necessity for British Missionaries is superseded 
by the labours of Native Evangelists ; for although they are dauntless pioneers and brave 
combatants in the battle field with heathenism, they need the presence and counsels of a 
leader, and still therefore the loud cry is heard from the Isles of the Pacific to the Churches 
of Britain, ** Come over and help us.'' 

The Rby. J. C. Vivian, appointed by the Directors to the Society Islands, informs us 
of the importunity of the people on islands he visited on the voyage, jrfeRCte^^ ^>«ett long 
waiting for the white Teacher, to detain him among them. 


" Ow lomg ifofBge from Sfdatf,*' writet Mr. Vivian, *• though •covpyiof* nearly nine 
Boathty has been fall of interest, and has oentributed greatly to my experience We bave 
vieited upwards of thirty islands, and I have teen the Mission field in these seas » aU its 
length and breadth. Yon will not be snrprised when I tell yon that, oa sereral of the 
islands to the West, the people are se anxiaas to receive Miasionaries, that I had literally 
te drag nyadf away almost by fbroa from them. 

" At Uea, one ef the Loyalty Islands, the Natives were so an«k>us for me to remaiii, that 
they were ready to give up their lands* or anything they possessed, if I would stay and be 
tlMir Missionary. 

** At FatBf as soo^ as they knew I was a new Missionary, they detenniaed, if possible, to 
secure me. At first they tried persuasion : on finding this to faH, they next tried' what force 
woald do — they designed to carry me off. For this purpose, six strong fellows came on 
board before daylight, and took their stand near the eabin stairs. Jndge my surprise on 
aMending the ladder. I had scarcely reached the top before I was caught in the close 
embrace of these six black men. They looked very resolved at ftrst ; but by a little coaxing 
I got my release, and when they found their case was hopeless, they desisted and made no 
Aorther effort. Every one of these poor feUows carried marks in his countenance of deep 
desire for forther instruction in the Word of God. It was truly painfol in the extreme to 
witness these things, and have no means of assistance at hand. Oh that more labourers 
wefe sent forth ! Truly, * the harvest is great, and the labonrers are few.' 

" On reaching Samoa, the same cry was heard from the Brethren and people, ' Do stay 
here ; we need help !' At the meeting of the Brethren no less than seven of the high 
chiefs came and made a formal request that I might be detained. Oh, if the Christian 
people of England could for one moment have witnessed the anxiety, or heard the pleadivgs 
of these men, I am persuaded they would think no sacrifice too great to make, in order to 
supply their want. They said with tears, if a Missionary did not come with them, the 
Fneti w6uld, and the people would be lost. If, by gathering the whole population before 
me, to plead their own case, they could succeed, th;;y would dn it, and 50O0 people should 
come and present themselves as destitute of a pastor and going to ruin. These things 
deeply wrought upon my feelings, and my heart melted in me for their sakes.** 

A similar statement is g^ven by Dr. Turner of the urgent entreaties of the nstivea of 
Fea, addressed to Mr. King, appointed to Samoa. 

The most formidable obstructions to the progress of Christianity in the Islands of the 
Pacific have not been found in the ignorance and degradation, nor even the savage ferocity 
of the islanders ; these have been orercome by toil and patience and love ; but the deadly 
wrongs inflicted upon the defenceless people by white men bearing the Christian name — these 
have been the monster evils which the Christian Teacher has had to encounter in every 
step of his generous career. To the cruelties perpetrated by our countrymen upon the 
natives of Eramanga, Williams became the victim of their mistaken revenge. But tiie 
atroMties recently committed by white saTages on the enlightened and Christianized natives 
of Polynesia exceed the horrible barbarities of all former years. Vessels well armed, and 
snpi^ied with all appliances for success, were sent out from the ports of Pern, to capture 
by firaud or by force the natives of various Polynesian groups, and convey them as slaves 
to labour and to die in the mines of that country. These vessels were fitted out by a 
well-known mercantile house in Lima, and partly with British capital ; and such was the 
success of their inhuman enterprise, that upwards of two thousand rictims were torn tronn 
their homes, and, if they survived the cruelties of the voyage, were doomed to the aggra- 
vated horrors of slavery. Several hundreds of the sufferers were natives of the Penrhyn 
Islands, and the Union group, and others of Niue or Savage Island. Into all these gronps 
the Gospel had been introduced by the Native Evangelists of our Society ; and, so signally 
had the Divine blessing been vouchsafed to their humble labours, that thousands of the 
barbarous people had been turned from idols to serve the living God, and to enjoy the peace 
and happiness which redeeming mercy never fails to bring. 

The last Report of the Society briefiy recorded the wonderful and happy change effected 
among the natives of Savage Island, by the power of Christianity, in the following words 
of the Rev. W. G. Lawes, the solitary European Missionary among the people :— 

FOB JUNE, 1864. 1€3 

" Fifteen years ago a foreigner wonld not have dared to land, nor been snifered to live on 
the island ; now, foreigners are treated with hotpitalily and kindness, and those who live 
amongst the people lack no good things that the land produces. Fifteen years ago they 
imd in the bush like brutes ; now, villages and neat plastered cottages evidence the pro- 
gress of dvilizatton. Fifteen years ago anarchy, war, and bloodshed, prevailed throughout 
tiie island ; now, law, order, and peace. Fifteen years ago the people were all dark and 
degfaded, st rang er s to prayer and praise; now, 'clothed and in their right mind,' they 
•orrooDd their fanily altars night and morning to bow down to the Gk)d of heaven, and the 
air is vocal with their songs of praise. Fifteen years ago they had no written language ; 
i»w, they have the Gospel and other books, with two thou$amd readers. Fifteen years 
ago tbey were alU before God, dead in sin ; now there are 360 in Church fellowship, living 
to His glory, beeides many who, we have reason to hope, are new creatures ia Christ 

WzthiB a few months after this cheering statement was given, the tame writer thos 
deecribes the wrongs and cruelties committed by a Peruvian slayer upon the unsuspecting 
natives: — 

" When the ahip sailed on the night of the capture, the natives on board thought she 
was making a long tack ; but they soon found that they were really off. Two white men, 
armed, guarded the hatchway, which was shut down, and the poor creatures below were in 
total darkness. They kept knockini^ at the door, dedc, and sides of the ship, and calling to 
be let out ; but some of the white men went down, and beat them with great pieces of wood, 
for makhig a noise. When the poor captives thought it was about the time of their even- 
ing warship, they united in their wretched confinement in singing and prayer. 

" On the following day the vessel stood in towards the shore ; and some natives, ignorant 
of the character of the ship, and of what had transpired, went on board. Those in confine- 
ment recognised the well-known tiounds of their native tongue, and shouted for help, but of 
4Kmrse in vain. By desperate efforts they succeeded in breaking a hole in the door large 
enough to let one through at a time. A number succeeded in reaching the deck, and 
railed over the ship's side into the sea ; but there were only two or three small canoes ; 
bnd was along way off, and some were not able to swim well. The wretches on board 
fired from the deck upon the helpless natives in the canoes and in the water. A boat was 
lowered, and many were recaptured. Seven only escaped. Among those carried off were 
fhirteen Church-members, and many candidates. Eighteen wives are left without husbands, 
and sixty-three children are deprived of their fathers. 

** One young man, Simeooa, a Church-member, was brought home a corpse, shot through 
tke head. The white wretches fired upon the unarmed and unresisting natives, for no 
other reason than that they might terrify them, and so make them an easy prey. Some of 
the canoes surrendered in terror : only three escaped to tell the tad tale. 

*' Among those carried off are some of the most impoi*tant men on the island, the law- 
makers and law-enforcers of Savage Island, and some of the most promising young men. 
Twenty-&ve Cburch-membera, one deacon, and many candidates, are among the cap^ves. 

*' It is indeed a day of darkness and gloominess on Nine, and many other of thtae inta* 
resting isles. It is as if the powers of hell were let loose upon their defenceless tribes. 

** One of the most touching; incidents connected with this sad affuir," says the Rev. 
A. W. Murray, ** is the fact that on the morning following the dreadful day on which the 
nnrderOBt proceedings took place at Savage I&laad, the natives, while their hearts were 
bleediag and their tears flowing because isthers, busbsnds, brothers, and tons ware ton 
firem tl^r embraee, should hft up their voice to God in prayer, not to invoke vengeance 
upon the heads of their guilty oppressors, but to pray that their hearts might be cbangedv 
and that they might be led to abandon their wicked courses. How hke the spirit of Him 
whose loUowers tbey proCess to be : * Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.' 
And still more touching, perhaps, is the scene on board that tkN^mg hell where the poor 
captives were confined. When they supposed the hour had arrived at which they had 
been wont with their families to worship God in their happy homes, now no longer theirs, 
they united in their accustomed exercises ; they prayed and sang praises to God, uid no 
donbt, hke their friends on shore, sought blessings for the miserable men by whom they 
were being so cruelly wronged." 

The foDowing general statement of the atrocities committed by the Peruvian slave-ships 
is given,' not by a Christian Missionary, who might be supposed to write with affection 
and partiahty towards his suffering converts, but it is the plain, unvarnished tale of an 


English Bailor, the captain of a vessel trading in the South Pacific, and whose testimony ma j 
therefore he regarded as entitled to confidence : — 

*' The schooner ' Emily' sailed from Bay of Islands, 3rd February, for Sunday Island, and 
on amiTal there found a large barque at anchor. On the captain of the schooner landing, he 
saw a number of natives that he knew to come from Duke of York and Duke of Clarence 
Islands, and as he could speak their language, they told him how that the barque had visited 
their islands, and that the captain and crew, well armed, landed in their boats, drove all 
the people down to the beach at the point of the bayonet, took every man, old and young, 
that had any strength, and carried them on board the ship, leaving none on the two islands 
but a few old white-headed men, and some women and children. The islands are almost 
depopulated. There were a number of natives from Savage Island on board, as well as 
from Manihiki, Danger, Easter, and other islands. There were about twenty-five women 
and forty children taken off Easter Island. When the slaver made Danger Island, the 
Missionary ashore sent a canoe off to know what vessel it was, and to obtain information. 
On the canoe coming alongside, both it and the man were hoisted on board ; the latter 
was put below the hatches, and the former broken up for fire-wood. 

'* The object of the sUver visiting Sunday Island was to try and restore the health of his 
cargo, which must have been very numerous ; as 300 or more, including men, women, and 
children, were in a dying state, owing to their crowded condition, and were landed in a most 
deplorable plight. They were so emaciated and feeble that they could not stand, and some 
were not able to crawl. The first kiunch-load that was landed consisted of fifty-three men : 
only three could stand of that number, three were found dead on the launch reaching the 
beach, and the residue were hauled out of the boat in the roughest manner to be conceived, 
and thrown on the beach — some beyond the surf, and others in it. Several were 
drowned where they were thrown, and eighty died immediately after being landed. Some, 
not having strength to crawl beyond the reach of the tide, were drowned. As soon as 
some of the others gained a little strength, and were able to move about, they ate almost 
anything that came in their reach, and the consequence was that diarrhcea, flux, and cramp 
seized them and carried them off in numbers. The dead bodies were buried on the beach 
in the sand, and when the tide rose and the surf set in, all the bodies were disinterred, and 
strewed over the beach, and allowed to remain as the tide left them. On the 19th April a 
considerable number of the people had partially recovered, and were able to walk about. 
Many of them intended to start for the high land just before the sailing of the barque, and 
hide themselves, which they can do, as the island is favourable for that purpose. The 
slaver is a beautiful-looking vessel, of about 400 tons measurement, and is remarkably fast 
in her sailing qualities. She has various names, flies a variety of flags, and is well armed. 
The captain and the greater part of the officers are Spaniards. Her crew is well-appointed : 
besides petty officers, there are twenty men of various nations before the mast. This vessel 
is one of seven of a similar character, and employed in like manner among the islands." 

From the preceding statement it will be seen that many of the captives perish before they 
reach the hind of their destined bondage, and the fearful sufferings of those who actually 
reach Peru may be learnt from the subjoined brief statement of an English gentleman 
resident in Lima, and who is evidently well informed on the painful subject : — 

** Fifteen hundred natives of Polynesia have been imported and sold here [at Peru]. At 
the hotel where I resided there is a boy employed in the kitchen ; and an American woman, 
residing in the house, has a little girl of about four years old, for which she paid sixty 
piastres. The mortality among them is very great, especially on the sugar-cane and on the 
rice plantations. They are there attacked by dysentery, and die rapidly. On one estate 
alone seventy-five were thus carried off. Their treatment is nearly the same as that of the 
negroes in the time of slavery. They are given something to eat and drink because they 
have cost money ; but they are beaten when they do not work, and, as that is altogether 
contrary to their habits and their thoughts, a great number have died under the blows 
inflicted upon them. 

** Nothing can be done with the women : they absolutely refuse to work. It is some- 
thing reaUy sad to see people sold like beasts, who can read their Bible, know how to write, 
and who are, in some respects, superior to their masters." 

This mournful intelligence produced the strongest sensation throughout Australia ; and 
in the several colonies public meetings were held, at which petitions and memorials were 
adopted, urging on the British Government the necessity of immediate measures for putting 

FOR JUNE, 1864. 165 

an end to tkis monsticiif eti]» and, if potsible, for the restoration of the captives to their 
conntry and their homes. 

On the arrival of the sad news in England, the Directors presented a memorial to Earl 
Rossell, Secretary for Foreign Affairs, inviting the special attention of her Mijesty's 
Government to these gross outrages, and urging the adoption of immediate and efficient 
means for their repression. From the reply of his Lordship, communicated by Mr. Layard, 
they were gratified to learn that their application had been anticipated, and that her 
Majesty's Government ''were doing all they could in the matter." 

They also learnt, with much pleasure (though not officially), that the measures actually 
adopted left no doubt of the sincere and anxious desire of the Government to protect the 
defenceless natives from the lawless proceedings of the slavers. Mr. Jeroingham, the 
British Minister in Rio, firmly protested to the Peruvian Government agabst the cruelties 
committed by the slavers, and, in consequence of these remonstrances, that Government 
placed a vessel at the disposal of such of the islanders who, having been forcibly brought to 
Peru, were desirous of returning to their native country. The ** Tribune," a British frigate, 
was also ordered to the South Sea Islands, in order to communicate with our consuls, and 
to afford such assistance as could be extended to the islanders. 

We most earnestly hope that the success of these measures may lead both to the righteous 
punishment of the oppressor and the liberation of the oppressed ; or, should they fail, that 
additional means, yet more stringent and effective, will be adopted till these objects are 

The French Governor of Tahiti, claiming jurisdiction over some of the neighbouring 
islands from which the Peruvian slavers had carried off victims, promptly despatched armed 
vessels, by which at least one of the ships was captured, and the captives set free. The 
captain and supercargo were brought to trial at Papeete for piracy, and found guilty; the 
one was sentenced to six, and the other to ten years' penal servitude — a most righteous 
sentence, which we may hope iHll tend to deter others from prosecuting this inhuman 


The Missions originated and sustained by the Society in Jamaica and British Guiana 
present for the greater part features in common, and throughout the year they have made 
hopeful advances both in numbers and strength, notwithstanding some adverse circumstances 
to which they have been exposed. 

They have suffered from the continued depression of Colonial produce; from the number 
of immigrant labourers from Africa and the East ; and from heavy import duties, applied to 
a large amount in the support of the several ecclesiastical bodies and their respective schools ; 
but in these resources convictions of Christian duty and consistency will not permit our 
Ministers and Churches to share. Although affected by these serious obstructions, they 
have continued to make advances : additional stations have been formed — new chapels have 
been built, and others have been enlarged — the character and social habits of the people 
have been sensibly improved— and their contributions toward the support of their 
Ministers, the expenses of worship, and the education of the young, have supplied convincing 
evidence of their Christian principles and conscious obligations. 

The number of Churches affiliated vrith the Society is ThiHjf'tix, distributed as follows :— 
In Jamaica, Fourteen; in Demerara, Ten; and in Berbice, Twehe, 

The number of Missionaries is Twenty-twOf and of Assistants Thirty-five. 

The number of Church-members lut returned is 5446. 

The amount of Contributions nused by the several Churches is as follows : — In Jamaica, 
£2497 1«. Id.; in Dbmeraba, j^1590 15*. %d.\ and in Berbice, £2220 6#. Zd,\ making 
a Total of £6308 3#. 


The indindual and social aspect of the coloured races in the West Indies is gndoally 
undergoing an obvious change. The race of Native Africans who were torn from their 
homes and brought to our colonies u slates is Cset passing away ; but se they suooessiTely 
leave the scenes of their early bondage, they often express in joyfnl strains their gralitade 
to that Divine Redeemer who remembered them in their low estate and made them free 

The last Bepori of the Rby. James Soott, cf Demeraim, contains some observtttaons to 
this effect : — 

*' We have still a small portion of the persons in onr Churches who were converted in a 
state of slavery, and who were comforted and sustained by the Gospel while groaning under 
the burden which that system of iniquity imposed upon them. They have been tixt stay 
and the strength of our Churches, and are so still. They are, however, being gathered 
home to the rest prepared for them in heaven. It is most deli;^htful to see these aged 
^sciples, guided through life, sustained in death, and dying in the faith of Christ, and in 
the full assurance of faith, leaving ns with their prayers and benedictiens. I have been 
greatly cheered in my visits to the sick and dying beds of some whom we regretted to lose, 
but in whose bliss we have had our joy.*' 

The Rev. Alfkbd Joyce, of Jamaica,, gives an interesting narratfre of one of these 
former slaves : — 

*' During the past week," he writes, " I have committed the bodies of two of our members 
to the grave, both of whom had been connected with the Church for many years. The life 
of one of these is full of interest. His name was Thomas Burke, an African. He was 
brought to Jamaica when about nine years of age. He was a great favourite with his master, 
who placed vreat confidence in him, and made him his waiting-servant. He was afterwards 
intrusted with a dray to fetch goods from Spanish Town, where, one evening, he attended a 
prayer meeting, and heard of the love of Chrbt, who died for sinners. From that time he 
'felt himself a poor sinner ft*om Africa, and Budkra no care for him, but one Massa Jesus 
love him ;' so he at once gave his heart to thai Jestts. So anxious was he to hear more of 
his Saviour, that on a Saturday evening, after he had fioiahed bis work, he would walk to 
Spanish Town, a distance of thirty-nine miles, to meet with God's people on the Sabbath. 
He walked back to his master's estate, and was at work by four o'clock on Monday 

'^ During the week he would go to neighbouring estates by night, and hold meetings with 
the slaves. He was not unsuccessful in his endeavours to bring others to think about their 
souls, and many began to pray for themselves, and for so duing were dreadfully beaten, and 
sometimes put to death. His master told him he might thank God when he partook of his 
food, but at uo other time was he to pray ; tf he did, he was to be shot. But he fioared 
not those who could only destroy the body, and continued to pray. He said, ' MaMS^ me 
canna give up praying, Massa Jeans too good to me.' 

" His valuable life was twice spared in a remarkable manner : two men, on separate 
occasions, who were going to witness against him for praying, died on their way. By his 
efforts and example he has done much for the cause here, and he bore his late affliction with 
great patience. He used to tell ns that be feared not to die, he was waiting for Jesns to 
take bim to Himself; and we can say with confidence, ' His end was peace.' " 


The state of the Mission Churches in the several districts of this extended field presents 
an aspect generally differing but little from the Report of last year. The Missionaries have 
not had to mourn over any matetial decline in the etete of their ooogwgations, but, on the 
other hand, they have not been ^le to report any considerable progress. This moat in 
some degree be attributed to the deprassed conditien of the coloured people^ arising from 
the loss of cattle and the severe drought of sncoeaaive years. From these causes their 
extreme poverty and general distrCM have bee» grievoos ; aad although diring the present 
year these evils have been alleviated by partial rains, yet they oontinne to feel the disastrous 
effects of former failures both in their cattle and their lands. This cannot be better 
described than in the Report of Peelton, from which we give the following extracts :— 

EOB JUNK, 1864. 167 

** is givfaig »]«porl af tiii« Steiticn, tht- people, and tfaeir oendifeieo, for tbe year just 
closed, reference mast be made to faeU which have very much affected tba* cooditioix 
during the laat two years, namely, the severe drought which has rested so heavily on the 
inhftbitanti of Aim land,, bat whicfa> through God's great mercy, is now, for this season at 
least, brohen np, and the happy result is, that all hearts loe cheered by the prospect of an 
abandaat harvest of the- native crops. 

'* The year just cloaed opened upoa m ynUb, a prospeot sad in the extreme, for the drought 
whfiefa had 8» greatly affected previeua harvests held on till it was almost too late to put 
seed into tke ground at all : but quite at the end of the season partial rains fell, sufficient 
to get «OfH« SMd sown ; bat the soil, having been softened only a few inches deep, soon 
becMse agaia dxy, and the tandar crops deooped, and all hope for any harvest waa well-nigh 
gone. Bat jiiat whea all appeared so dark, early in Febmary & partial Fain fell which satu«- 
rated the ground, and oalled forth meetings for thanksgi^ii]^ and praise to God, who had 
sent rdief in answer to oar urgent prayers. From that time showers continued to fall 
which matored' the cvops ; and thoo^ late and very'Umited, becanse so small a quantity of 
seed ooold be sown, yet for a while there was food far all. The physical energies of the 
pe e y k, so leog depressed, wen again reviled, and new life was inlased into ererything ; 
and in nothing was the change more apparent than in the activities of the Christian life of 
tike Ckureh^members. For that state of depvession of the bodily powers, which we wit* 
nessed, materially affected tbe miad, and a oovrespending inanimate state pervaded the 
religions exercises and life of the people. The Sabbath services and meetings were indeed 
wen attended, and most appropriate prayers were offered up to God in their gatherings, yet 
there waa a depression aboat it all whtdi eonld not but tall heavily upon those who wei^ 
labouring among them. 

** Bat as soon as there was a retam of abundance^ the change was apparent and most 
satisfactory. The Evangelists were out more frequently among the heathen. The careless 
and indifferent were looked up and brongfat to the boose of Qod, A desire for doing more 
lor the spread of the Gospel among their heathen countrymen began to stir many hearts, 
which led to a public meeting, originating entiiely with the people, and which might be 
properly designated a Home Missionary Meeting. It was, without question, the best native 
meeting I have ever witnessed. The Rev. R. Birt, the senior Missionary, presided on the 
ooeaaioB ; when good plans were disoossed and resolved upon ; among others, the support 
of a Native Evangelist among the heathen in our district.^' 

The evils described in the foregoing atatenent were not restricted, to any given district, 
but prevailed, aa a greater or less degree, throughoni Soath Afirtca. But, notwithstanding 
these aflietive and successive visitations, depriving the people of the ability to contribute 
their usual amount of support towards the several Missions, they manifested still a willing 
mind, and even from the depth of their poverty the riches of their liberality abounded. No 
material dedeasion is found in the contributions of any station, and from several there is a 
decided increase. 

The internal and spiritual condition of the Native Churches, though not free from occa- 
nons of anxiety and regret, is nevertheless regarded by our Miaaionary Brethren generally 
with gcatitode and hope. 

The Rev. A. Robson, of Port EUzabetb, one of the oldest labourers in South Africs, 
reports — 

" The attendance on Divine Service both in the wedc and on the Sabbath, and the state 
of the schools, are the same as last year. The ohapel, though recently enkrged, is quite 
fttU on the Sabbath evening, and the audience is always very attentive. 

'* The past year has indMd been one of trial, espedally to the poor people. The neces- 
saries of life have been very expensive, but, thank God, we have now been favoured with 
rain : last night it fell in torrents, and there is the project of better times. 

** The people's contributions towards the support of the Gospel at this Station amount, 
la the whole, to upwards of £150. 

" The great Head of the Church has been ftlling up the vacancies that death had made. 
I have, during the past year, received twenty into the Church as full members. Two more 
stand proposed, and there are several candidates for baptism and communion. From 
several of the people I have received small tokens of regard, which are enhanced in value, 
owing to the princtple whence they proceeded, namely, love to me for my Master's sake." 


The Journals of our Misnonarj Brethren contain many interesting notices of departed 
Christian friends. From these we select the following : — 

" During the past year/' obserres the HeT. A. Robson, '* three of our most liberal sup- 
porters have been remoTed by death. In the demise of one excellent man the loss is very 
great. He not merely, according to his means, subscribed liberally, but inflpenced others, 
and was always ready, in everything connected with the cause, to lend a helping hand. I 
have received much kindness from him. His death was sudden, and induced by an act of 
mercy. Passing a European lying under a burning sun in a state of intoxication, he called 
another of our members to his aid, and carried him home. On entering the man's abode 
he fell down ; the blood streamed out of his mouth, he became speechless, was carried to 
his own abode, and expired. He was highly respected both by the natives and Europeans, 
and there was a rush of both classes to his abode, who also attended his interment. His 
employer bore the expenses of the funeral, and made handsome presents to the bereaved 
vridow. His death was noticed and his character eulogized in the newspapers as a respect- 
able, industrious, good man, who had been twenty years in the employ of the Mayor of 
this town. He was formerly a drunkard : simple was the means of his conversion. Passing 
him one day in the vicinity of the town, I said, * Henry, my Father has a large house above ; 
there is room for you, and I vrish to meet you there.' After this he became a changed man, 
A member of the Church, and a zealous advocate of temperance." 

The Mission Stations beytmd the Orange River have suffered in common vrith those in 
the South, though in a less degree ; and our Missionaries appear to have been exempted 
from the difficulties and impediments from without, to which, in some former years, they 
had been subjected. Our devoted Brother the Ret. William Ross, of Lekatlono, died 
«midst the affectionate sorrows of his people in July last, and the Rev. William Ashtok, 
who has for several years laboured at Kuruman, where he has very efficiently conducted 
the Printing Press, has taken charge of the vacant Station. 

The Rev. Robert Moffat continues, in his advancing years, most abundant in labours, 
as the following passages selected from his last Report of the Mission at Kuruman will 
evince : — 

** Time, ever on the vring, has brought us to the beginning of another year, and reminds, 
me that I ought to draw up a report of this Station. We have to record the goodness of 
•onr Heavenly Father in not only sparing our lives, but granting us health, by which we 
have been enabled in a measure to attend to the important duties which continually occupy 
our time. These are too varied and often too numerous to allow each to be efficiently per- 
formed ; but better have too much to do than too little. 

" Among the members of our Church deaths have been more than usually numerous. 
Some families have been attacked with fever of a typhoid kind. Five have died during the 
year ; two of them in the course of nature, full of years, and in the full assurance of ^th. 
One man was still in the prime of life, and had for many years been a useful member of the 
Church. The two other were sisters, comparatiyely young, and whose death was a loss 
deeply felt by all. The eldest particularly was a most exemplary Christian, the wife of one 
who knew nothing about heart religion. Ever since she was received into the Church she 
has been an example to all by her intelligence, love, and good works. No one could see 
anything else than loveliness in her Christianity. As she lived, so she died, without the 
shadow of a cloud to darken her bright prospect of joining the redeemed above. When 
asked if she had no desire to recover health, and be useful to her friends and children, she 
replied, that were she spared she could continue her endeavours and prayers for them, 
and especially for her anbelieving husband ; but, lifting her hand heavenward, added, 
' Jesus lives, and He can do for tbem what He has done for me. I have no wish to live 
an hour longer than He wills.' Finding it very difficult to articulate, she would occasionally 
try hard to say, * Oh that I were able to sp^, that I might tell all how happy I feel in 
the prospect of being soon with Jesus.' 

" The outward affairs and appearance of the station continue to advance. 

" The school, to which my daughter attends with unwearied energy, continues to give 
entire satisfaction ; and we only vrish we had the means of leading on the more intelligent 
to higher branches. 

''Our Auxiliary, notvrithstanding the late frost of last year half destroying the crops, 
and the not infrequent visits of the cattle epidemic, amounts to £64. It ought, however, 
to have been more ; and I shall not feel satisfied till I see aU our people more grateful for 

t-oR TOKE, 1864. 169 

their prhileges, uicl profetlort more anxious for the salration of others. Nearly £10 of 
the above was contribiited by Europeans. 

"The Chnrch amoog the Batlaru tribe presents an encouraging aspect; anJ, from an 
mereMing number of candidates, seven adults have been added. Our native schoolmaster, 
Motaue, itattoned among that people, pursues his work of Instruction vnth his vrontedzeal, 
aided by others in public services and visiting neighbouring villages. We continue pur 
visits every alternate Sabbath, preaching at the two principal towns, and administering the 
liord's Supper about every two months. 

" We hare just ihiished the week for special prayer, which was well attended every 
morning at sunrise. Oh that it may be followed with a rich outpouring of heavenly grace V* 

The intelligence received from our Missionaries setUed in the country of the Matebile, 
under the despotic and barbarous Moselekatse, presents many discouragements and diffi- 
culties with which they have to contend. These arise chiefly from the selfishness, caprice, 
and cruel despotism of the aged chief; and they will be best described in the language of 
the Missionaries. The Rev. William Sykes writes— 

'• During the kst year, I am sorry to say, we have mode very little advance in teaching, 
though I believe we have gained not a little in the estimation of the people. 

" We have our Sabbath morning service as usual, and three village services during the 
week. Taking the average attendance at the four services, I should say about a hundred 
people hear the Gospel weekly, of whom the larger part are male adults. As a rule the 
people are attentive, as if anxious to understand what is said. We often find at the close 
of the service that they have understood the most part, although the expositions they have 
listened to have been on subjects surprisingly strange to them. But it is to be feared that 
the most that can be said of the result is, that it is but the hearing of the ear. 

" As to schools, alas I the prospect is dark, rery dark. And what is a Mission without 
its School ? I have tried times without number to induce the people to learn to read. I 
have spent hours again and again in explaining to them the advantages of being able to read 
and write. Some have said they would learn to read at once ; but when they found that 
it would require weeks, perhaps months, the resolution vanished. Others have said that 
they would learn if I would give them something for learning; which I always decline to 
do. I think nine out of ten individuals with whom I have talked on learning to read, have 
said that they would Icam but for fear of the King. In conversation with people who know 
us best, they have frequently declared that that was the reason why people did not learn — it 
being their settled conviction that, if it were once known that they could read, they would 
be killed immediately ; and I am the more convinced that this is the real reason since I 
made a recent visit to Moselekatse, who has spent most of last year about thirty or forty 
miles from us. Having travelled nearly three days with the waggon, we came to the King's 
temporary kraah He welcomed us heartily, and was. most friendly during our short visit. 
It was the first time I had conversed with his Majesty in his own language. When the 
Sabbath drew near, I was very anxious to address the large number of people who were 
about the King, but was not sanguine of obtaining permission. On Saturday afternoon, 
having prayed to God to clear my way for proclaiming His message of love and mercy to 
those poor benighted souls, I went and sat a little while with the aged chief, and told him 
that next day would be God's day, and I was hoping to tell his people the words of God* 
To which he replied, * Yes, my child.' I thanked him and retired, reminding him that I 
should come agam in the morning. Next morning, when the sun became warm and the 
poor old man began to stir, I immediately appeared and repeated my request of the 
previous afternoon. He asked me if I was begging meat ; to which I answered, I need not 
beg that day, be had supplied me well the day before ; but I was begging for the ears of all 
his people, that I might tell them words about God's love. When he saw I was determined, 
he left me and went into his private courtyard. I waited awhile, thinking he would send 
orders for the people to assemble ; but nobody appeared ; so I followed him and repeated 
my request. Straightway he gave the word of command, and in a few minutes the largest 
congregation that I have seen in the Matebele country assembled for worship. I wished I 
eonld see such a gathering every week. They were most attentive and reverential, though 
the white man's singing was amusing to some. 

** On the Monday after my service I was determined to try to ascertain the mind of the 
aged chief on the subject of teaching* I told him my heart was weeping every day because 
his people rdfosed to learn to read. We had come a long way to live amongst his people, 
hoping to teach them to read the words of God, as well as to expound those words to them. 
It was our dedre to teach them to read, that they might see for themselves what God had 

a ^ 


said to them. The chief looked at me intensely, and one of his attendants, supposing his 
royal master had not understood, began to repeat my words, but was interrupted by the 
chiefs saying, ' I have heard, he speaks ;' and, addressing me, he added, * I tell my people 
my own words.' I answered, ' It is right ; but God has spoken to all men in His book, 

and ' Here his Majesty interrupted and laughed at me, with his hundred or more 

attendants, for several minutes. When they were silent I urged my petition on behalf of 
his people, that, if it were for fear of their chief that they refused to learn, I begged that 
he would give them his full permission ; but he raised another and more extended laugh 
against me. When they were silent, I repeated my petition, but with a similar result ; 
and, having no further opportunity of speaking, I returned to my waggon more depressed 
on the teaching question than I had been before." 

The Rby. Thomas Thomas describes the state and prospects of the Mission in similar 
terms of sorrow and disappointment. 

Under obstacles and discouragements so painful, our Missionaries have the strongest 
claims for our sympathy and prayers ; and we trust that, sustained by their Divine Master, 
their faith will not fail nor their spirits droop, but that they vrill toil on and faint not. 
Without the sure promises of God our Saviour, we might indeed not only despond, but 
despair. But let us remember that, dark as are the minds of the Matebele, and hard and 
cruel as is the heart of their chief, no less hard and no less dark were the King of Lattakoo 
and his Bechuana subjects when Robert Moffat and his fellow-labourers commenced thor 
work of mercy in their midst. Often were their lamentations renewed as they witnessed the 
barbarous customs and debased habits of those they sought to save ; but as their difficulties 
multiplied they laboured with greater zeal, and prayed the more earnestly ; and, as *' the 
husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until 
he receive the early and latter rain/' so they waited ; and we know the result. " The 
Spirit was poured out from on high, and the wilderness became a fruitful field." What the 
Bechuanas were the Matebele ares but, through God's power and grace, the Matebele will 
hereafter become, in social elevation and Christian character, what the believers of Kuruman 
long have been. 


It was announced in the last Report that, in addition to the Colony of Hong Kono, and 
the Cities of Canton, Amot, and Shanohab, our Missionaries had entered on new fields 
of labour in Hankow, Tibn-tsin, and Pbkino, and the results now to be narrated will be 
found highly encouraging. 


The Itev. Dr. Legge, with his native colleague Tsun-sheen, and other Chinese assistants! 
have prosecuted their varied labours with unwearied diligence, and from the Report for the 
year the following interesting particulars are selected :^- 

'* Our regular Chinese services have amounted, since the new chapels were opened^ to 
twelve a week. The year has certainly been one in labours more abundant, and yet I haye 
not seen so much fruit as in some previous years. I baptized eighteen adults, one-half of 
whom, however, were convicts in the gaol. Some of the friends who were baptized in Poklo 
have come to reside in Hong Kong, and were admitted, by the suffrage of the Church, after 
some time, to the Lord's Supper. A few members have died, and several have removed 
from the island. Our Church roll now contains the names of seventy-eight individuals in 
full communion — fifty-four males and twenty-four females. 

" Ac our annual meeting on the 8th of February, the first day of the Chinese year, I 
brought the fact of the few additions to the Church during the last twelve months before 
the meeting ; and we made prayer to God that He would command His blessing and help 
us to do our duty, so that we might have to praise Him for a different result when we came 
together on the next year. There was a good spirit : not a few seemed to have a mind 
both to work and to pray. 

"1 would not have you think that I am discouraged on reviewing the year's history, and 
I shall be very sorry if I produce any feeling of that kind. But, with the Church that has 

^OR JUNE, 1864. 1^1 

been gathered, and the chapels that haye been boilt, we could desire that our accessions 
from the heathen were more numerous. 

" Among the convicts under sentence of imprisonment for life, or for a term of years, 
there are now tweWe men remaining of eighteen, whom I baptized at different times. I 
have resolved, after long deliberation, to administer to them the ordinance of the Lord's 
Supper. They have repeatedly asked me to do so. Their understanding of the way of sal- 
vation is clear. Their conduct is very good : the testimony of their superintendent is, 
* They are tlie best conducted of all the men under my charge.' The men under long 
sentences were removed during the summer from Victoria to an island in the harbour. As 
we still conduct a service in the gaol, this gives us two services with prisoners on the 
Sabbath. A visit to the island takes three hours of the day, but I cannot think of giving it 
up. My experience in preaching to these children of crime hss been refreshing to my own 
soul, and strengthening to my faith. Our Gospel is the gracious and powerful message of 
mercy of Him who did not shrink, when He was on earth, from publicans and sinners." 

The Church at Pok-lo, which, after the martyrdom of its venerable founder Ch'ka, was 
for a time scattered abroad, has been again collected, and the members assemble in two 
adjoining villages for Christian worship without molestation. This gratifying fact is stated 
by Dr. Legge as follows : — 

*' I often wished to adventure a visit to Pok-lo during the year, but being here alone, t 
found it impossible to leave Hong Kong long enough for the purpose ; but one and another 
of the members of the Church have gone there repeatedly. We have also employed three of 
the Christians themselves to act as catechists, and they have come here from time to time 
with their reports and journals. The converts remain, in the mass, firm in their Christian 
profession, and many around are ready to cast in their lot with them. 

'* The Chinese Government has done nothing to redress the wrongs of 1861 ; but there is 
no persecution now bat what is of a petty character. The Christians themselves proposed 
that, leaving Pok-lo city for the present, we should build two small chapels, one in the 
village of !Nam>sheat'ong, and one in that of Kot-leng. A Christian at each place gave the 
ground ; the rest of them raised 50 dollars ; there remained nearly 250 dollars of the money 
collected in 1861 for a chapel in Pok-lo, and the Church here supplied 100 dollars more: 
these 400 dollars it was hoped would suffice for the object ; but it turned out that 100 
dollars more were required : I stated the case when most of our members were present, 
and the money was contributed upon the spot. The two chapels have been opened for the 
worship of God during the present month (February). 

" These are facts which I lay before you simply and briefly. I believe the work there is 
of God, and that it will go on." 


In this city, in which Dr. Morrison commenced his Mission, the labours of oar Mission* 
aries have long been attended with many discouragements and with limited success \ but the 
Report of Messrs. Chalmers and Turner, for the pAst year, which will be found in the 
larger Report, encourages brighter hopes for the future. 


The Kative Christians in the villages around this populous city have endured much penc<* 
cution from their heathen countrymen ; but they have suffered with patience and flrmness *, 
and it is hoped that through the intervention of Sir Frederick Bruce, our representative at 
Peking, the Chinese Government will, according to the provisions of the Treaty with Great 
Britain and France, adopt decisive measures for the protection of their Christian subjects, 
and that hereafter they may enjoy freedom in the exercise of their faith and worship. But, 
notwithstanding these acts of hostility, the cause of God in the city has continued to gather 
strength, and the journals of Messrs. Stronach and Maooow an (the latter having, during 
the year, removed from Shanghae), continue, as heretofore, to afford ample evidence of the 
presence and blessing of God with His faithful servants. 

" With much thankfulness,'' write the Missionaries, " we have, at the beginning of 
another year, to record God's great goodness to us, and the blessings He continues to vouch* 
safe on our labours. 


** During the past half-year we have had the privilege to receive into the Chnrch of Christ 
twenty-three new converts in Amoy, and eeventeen at our Out-stations. All these /or/y 
new members have been long under instruction and examination as applicants for admission 
into the Church, and have given satisfactory evidence of the sincerity of their faith in Christ, 
and of their professed devotion unto Him. 

** During the past half-year five women and one man have been removed by death. 
Several of these women are much regretted, as they used constantly to attend Mrs. 
Stronach's female meetings, and occasionally to lead in prayer, greatly to the edification of 
their sisters m Christ. One of these women died after a few days' illness i but, though her 
death was so sudden and unexpected, she was well prepared for her end. She told her 
husband, who is still a heathen, that she was in perfect peace, and that she trusted in Jesos 
and was going to Him. In the morning of her last day, when she felt herself dying, she 
sent for two Christian women to come and be present with her when she died, lest her 
heathen relatives should have their usual idolatrous services for her. 

** Our present number of Church-members in Amoy is 311. Adding 39 at our Out- 
stations, the united number under our care is 350. 

** The two schools for the children of our Church-members are carried on under cir- 
cumstances of encouragement. 

" The room in Chio-loh continues to be opened daily, as well as the two chapels for 
preaching ; and on the Lord's day regular services are held in all, and are encouragingly 

" The Ouf-etathnSt five in number, have been visited this half-year by Mr. J. Stronach, 
who communicates many gratifying instances of success. 

" Dr. Carnegie still continues his valuable services in the Chinese Hospital^ assisted there 
by Lui-chin-tiong, an old scholar of Mr. J. Stronach's, who is now one of our Church- 
members. Preaching is still conducted in the Hall of the Hospital by Mr. A. Stronach 
every Wednesday morning, and is alwavs well attended by both men and women, who listen 
seriously to the Gospel. The other public services there, on Mondays and Fridays, are con- 
ducted by Missionaries of the American Dutch Reformed Church, and those belonging to 
the English Presbyterian Board. Besides the people df the city, patients from all parts of 
the surrounding country, coming for medical relief, have attended these services, and some 
of them have • received the love of the truth, that they might be ^saved.* These have 
renounced idolatry, and, returning to their distant homes, now openly worship the living 
God. The influence of the new lives of these witnesses for Christ has been blessed in 
leading several of their neighbours to inquire after the way of life, and to meet together 
with the Christians for reading the Scriptures and for prayer. 

" Mr. Macgowan, after four months' study of the dialect, began his public labours, and 
now takes his share in conducting the Lord's day services, both in Amoy and at the Out- 


Our Mission, in common with those of other Societies, has suffered from the unsettled 
state of the city, as well as the surrounding country. The Imperial forces, aided by fo- 
reigners, have maintained continued warfare with the Tae-ping insurgents ; extensive tracts 
of country have been made desolate, and the inhabitants have sought refuge in the city, 
which is now over-crowded with these unhappy strangers. Towards the close of the year 
the City of Soochow, which had long been in possession of the insurgents, was taken by the 
Imperial forces and theh: foreign auxiliaries, and the conquest was followed by the most 
atrocious cruelties on the part of the victors towards the vanquished. Surrounded by such 
exciting and revolting scenes, the anxiety and distress of our Missionaries must have been 
unceasing, and the Directors are thankful that both their health and their lives have been 
preserved^that they have prosecuted their various labours with zeal and constancy — and 
that these have been attended, through the grace ani power of their Divine Master, with a 
cheering measure of success. The following are extracts from their Report :— 

'' The state of transidon that has so much marked the native commnnity of this place 
during the past year has, of course, largely affected our Mission work. The people have 
been very unsettled, owing to the existing condition of things. Driven from their homes by 
the rebellion, multitudes have been reduced to poverty, and have been staying in Shanghae 
only for a time. The success that has attended the operations of the Anglo-Chinese force 
has enabled many to remove into the country, and in this way constant migrations ar« ttking

" Our maia work of pretobing the Gotpel hM bora TroremHtingly carried on. Th« 
f arions chapels and station! connected with the Miuion haye been opened from day to day, 
and the word of life hu thos been announced to thousands. 

" At our large chapel in the city there has been an average attendance of a hundred and 
fifty persons daily, except on the Sabbath, when the number is at least double. On the 
latter occasion the attention and quiet obserred by the audience ha?e been very encouraging, 
and altogether the place has proved a noble sphere for the object we have in view. Thirty, 
two have been admitted by baptism into the fellowship of the Church during the past year, 
and upwards of a hundred have inserted their names in the list of inquirers within the last 
four months. Were it not for the continual change taking place among the natives in the 
matter of residence, we have no doubt that there would be a much more flourishing and 
settled Church here than there is now. The number in the city on the roll of membership 
is $weniy'Jlve, who may be relied on as appreciating the value of Christian ordinances. 
Bnt, apart from the mere matter of admission to Christian fellowship, we believe the oppor* 
tunity afforded for preaching the Gospel to sucb crowds of people is unequalled in China. 
May God bless the word spoken still more and more. 

" The second chapel in the city has been enlarged lately, and is conveniently situated for 
passers*by. The attendance ranges from fifty to a hundred a day. It is increased when the 
foreign Missionary is present ; but this sphere of labour is particularly under the care of the 
native pastor, who resides in the building. A school of ten boys, the children of converts, 
has been opened here, and it is intended to form a seminary of forty or fifty youths in the 
course of this year. 

'* In the HoRPiTAL, under the superintendence of Dr. Henderson, the number of patients 
has been at least as great as in former years. Every day, from twelve to one o'clock, a 
Native preacher is at work amongst them, occasionally assisted by one of us, and thus the 
Gospel continues tobe diffused on an extensive scale throughout a large portion of the suffering 
community. Certain alterations having been made in the opening to the hospital, the place 
is now easily available for other religious services, which are about to be commenced in the 
afternoon and evening. 

" The English chapel, so long in connection with us, for the benefit of the Mission and the 
foreign residents, has been taken down. A new and commodious place of worship is being 
built on the same site, at the expense of the congregation and others. 

" As to our Country Stations, the nearest is about three miles distant. The number in 
attendance every Sabbath is about thirty, and three have been admitted daring the year. 
Three other Stations have been formed at varying distances of two and three miles, which 
are visited by the native preacher regularly, and new life seems to have been imparted by the 
arrangement. About fifty come to each of these Stationsi and several have applied for 
baptism. Our object is to form a number of Stations round one that is central, and assign 
them to the Native Agent as his special sphere of labour, in connection with a general 
visitation of the surrounding country. There are indications of prosperity in this form of 
the work which we hope to see ere long fully realised. 


Three Foreign Missionaries. One ordained Native Pastor. Smc Native Preachers.

The labours of the Society were eommenoed in this populous city less than three yeart 
sinee by the Rsv. Griffith John and the late Riv. Robert Wilson ; and the mag- 
nitude and importance of the field will be best understood by the following description given 
by Mr. John : — 

'< Long before the opening up of the great Yang'tsi the existence of this immense emporium 
had been made known to the merchant and the Missionary. Of\en had we heard of its 
importance, its vastness, and its grandeur, from the natives. They were wont to diraify it with 
the appellations, • The Centre of the Empire,' and • The Port of Nine Provinces.*^ Hue also 
had told us wonderful things (some things rather too wonderful to believe") about this great 
* commercial mart.' And although we knew that the Chinese could hyperbolize, and that 
Hue was given to exaggerate, we concluded that there must be a substratum of truth under- 
lying these glowing representations. Hence, when this mysteriously grand Hankow was to 
be thrown open to the victorious barbarian, both the merchant and the Missionary were 
delighted with the prospect of being able soon to carry on their respective enterprises in so 
iRviting a sphere. The merchants rushed up the river in rapid succession, and, in a business 
manner, took possession of the place. At first they had to put up with many inconveniences. 


Liying in nattfe houses, and scattered oyer all the town, they found it at the outset anything 
but pleasant and enjoyable— very different from that to which they had been accustomed. 
But gradually they are oonvertiDg the most worthless part of the town into what is destined 
to be one of the most attractive spots in China. 

"The present population of Hankow is generally supposed to be about eight hundred 
thousand. Some maintain that it is more than a million. But what makes this mass of 
human beings specially interesting to the Missionary is its mixed character. Here we have 
the representatives of the eighteen provinces, in the character of merchants, boatmen, and 
artisans. Through these the Missionary may, to a certain extent, influence the whole country. 
When these strangers leave the place they carry the truth with them in their minds and in 
the books, which we freely give to all who can read. Of this fact I have had many proofs. 
Again and again have men come to me who have evinced considerable acquaintance with the 
truth, though they had never heard the Gospel preached at our chapels. On inquiry I have 
found that they had either heard it from others who had been in the habit of attending 
when living in this place, or had found it in the books which those men had taken with them 
to their homes. It is often- gratifying to learn from many who apply for books, that they 
want them to take to Si-chwan, or Shen-si, or Kwei-cbow, or to some other province many 
hundreds of mites away. These facts will give you some idea of the great importance of 
Hankow as a Missionary Station. 

** Since my arrivsl the Gospel has been preached daily to all who have desired to hear it. 
Before the chapel was erected the services were conducted in our house. Though an obscure 
and inconvenient spot, the hall was generally well filled. Many a pleasant hour have I spent 
there in trying to deposit the seed of truth in the minds of this people ; and I do trust and 
believe that some have been born again in that hall. Thousands have heard the glad tidings 
of salvation there, who had never heard them before; but in how many hearts that seed has 
taken root, and in how many lives it is bearing fruit to the praise and glory of God, it is 
impossible for me to know. That it has been blessed to the salvation of some, and to the 
enlightenment of many, is certain. It was only last week I met with a man who had heard 
the Gospel in that hall several months ago, and who had been reading one of our books very 
carefully, and I was delighted to find that he was convinced of the truth of Christianity, was 
persuaded of the folly of idolatry, and that he had never worshipped an idol since he heard 
the Gospel. * In reading the book you gave me,' said he, * 1 saw clearly that the temple 
idols are nothing but wood and earth carved and shaped by the hands of roan, and that the 
spirits we worship are nought but the ghosts of dead men. Now, I am convinced that God 
the Heavenly Father is the only true God — that He is the Creator of heaven, and of earth, 
and of all things.' ' Cut thy bread upon the waters, and thou shall find it after many days.' 

** We opened our chapel on the 19th of July, and from that day until this it has been 
opened daily for public service. It is on one of the best thoroughfares in Hankow, and as 
near the centre of the town as possible. A better site it would be difficult to find. 

'* Our infant Church in Hankow is growing stronger. Our number is now tvfenttf* three; 
It is gradually increasing, and the piety of the members is, I trust, deepening. Their 
charactei is on the whole good. There are among them those of whose sincerity there can 
be no doubt, true members of Christ's body, who have felt that the Lord is precious, and 
who are rejoicing in the hope of the glory of God. 

•* At the beginning of last year we commenced the system of monthly subscriptions in 
connection with the Native Church ; and during the year they amounted to nearly £Z0, 
With a part of this we bought a piece of ground for a Native Cemetery ; and we have been 
able to render material aid to two or three of the poorer members with the remainder. 

" On the 12th of August, 1863, my dear friend and excellent colleague Mr. Wilson was 
suddenly and unexpectedly removed from among us. Of this event I have already informed 
you. In losing him I feci that I have lost a most valuable friend, the Society a noble- 
hearted Missionary, and this community a godly man. I often think of him ; and his 
memory never fails to bring with it hallowed influences. By this time his bereaved family 
will be drawing near their native land. Again do I commend them to your kind regard. 
You will be pleased to learn that the gentlemen of this country have placed in my hands a 
handsome sum for their benefit. This is not the place for me to speak of the foreign 
merchants; but I may be allowed to state that I have never known a class of men more 
generous and noble-hearted than the merchants of China. I have never known them to 
regard suffering with indifference, to turn away from the needy, or to fail to respond 
heartily to any worthy call.

month of the Chinese new jear. Of this I shall write to yon more fally hereafter. 

<* I have just established one Out-station at a place called Ttat'tien, abont fifteen miles 
from Hankow. The population is large, and the people seem well disposed. The Native 
Assistant whom I ha?e placed there is a tried man, and is likely to torn ont well.

The Bbv. Joseph Edkins commenced the Mission in this city, and he was soon 
privileged to receive the first-fruits of his labours in several promising converts, who made 
a public profession of their faith in Christ, and manifested a lively concern for the salvation 
of their countrymen. In April, 1862, the Ret. Jonathan Lbbs arrived in Tien-tsin, and 
Mr. Edkins advanced to Peking ; but the Rby. Jambs Williamson has since joined 
Mr. Lees, and cheering hopes may be entertained that the blessing of God will be granted 
to their diligent and faithful Ubours. 


Till within a recent period, Missionaries have not been admitted to the capital of the 
Chinese empire ; but these restrictions have lately been relaxed, and there are now ten 
agents of different societies, including two Medical Missionaries, settled within the walls, 
and actively engaged in various Missionary operations. While the people are yet very 
imperfectly acquainted with the objects and labours of Christian Teachers, and while their 
prejudices against the admission of foreigners continue strong, it hu been deemed necessary 
to abetain from preaching in the crowded streets ; but buildings may be obtained as Hos- 
pitals, Schools, and Preaching Stations, in which these several forms of Christian labour 
may be prosecuted without interruption. 

The following is the list supplied by Dr. Lockhart of the Societies which have already 
established Missions in Peking, with the names of their respective agents :— 

London Missiona&t Socibty. — Rev. Joseph Edkins and wife ; and Dr. Lockhart. 
Chukch Missionaby SociBTY.^Rev. J. Burden ; Rev. W. H. Collins, wife, and children ; 

and Mr. John Fryer, School Teacher. 
QoBPBL Propaoation Socibty. — Dr. Stewart ; and Rev. F. R. MicheU. 
English Pbbsbytbrian Mission. — Rev. W. C. Bums, pro iem. 
Ambrican Episcopal Mission. — Rev. S. Scherescherveski. 
Ambbican Pbbsbytbbian Mission. — Rev. Dr. W. Martin, wife, and children. 

The Rkv. Josbph Edbins, in a letter dated January 23rd, ult., describes the various 
methods in which Missionary operations are at present carried on in Peking :— 

♦« The work of preaching in this city," he writes, " is now gradually extending. At 
present there are two rooms daily employed in connection with our Mission, for making 
known the Gospel of the blessed God, besides the paticnU' waiting-room in the hospital. 
The first is a room in an Imperial temple. A ride of between three and four miles, chiefly 
on roads skirting the palace walls, conducts to it. The hospital is to the south-east of the 
palace, and this sUtion is on the north-west, in a very densely populated part of the 
Tartar city. I rejoiced in its being obtained for preaching, as an imporUnt step towards 
greater freedom of operations. In the front courtyard of the temple there arc sonoe small 
side buildings, ond it was one of these that an Assistant Preacher, aided by a Manchu 
convert, succeeded in renting, to be used as his home and also as a meeting-house ; and it 
has been employed daily for this purpose ever since. The Manchu convert has exerted 
himself Bcalously to bring hU friends to hear the words of Jesus; and daily instruciion out 
of the Scriptures, and social prayer meetings, have already led some of them to a con- 
siderable acquaintance with Ofmoo truth. Most of the attendants are Manchus. rne 
pre^her comes to the hospitalsitai^ or four mornings in the week, to attend my daily clasf, 


and on Sunday lie bringi with him six or eight of his disciples ; and ttieir steady sttentioib 
to the heavenly teachings of the Divine word is cheering. 

** The room is smalt, and it is now necessary to exchange it for one more eemmodioui in. 
the neighbourhood. The ' Temple of the Emperors and Kings ' needs repairing, and this 
will render it impossible for us to hire the room again at present ; but another larger house- 
has been obtained, and we expect that this will be opened for preaching in a few days. It 
is in a lane of the larger kind. We thus avoid the greater publicity of large thoroughfares, 
at present, contented if we can obtain a limited audience of constant hearers in a locality 
somewhat retired, rather than invite a crowd of those who, like the wayside auditors in the; 
parable, allow the birds of evil intent to rob them of their treasure. 

*'The other preaching room has been hired in a large lane also, half a mile from the. 
hospital. Part of it is used as a schoolroom for poor children. It was first opened for 
preaching on the first Sunday in the new year ; and men and women from the neighbour- 
hood have filled the house on each Sabbath afternoon ever since. The schoolmaster, who 
was' baptized three weeks since at the hospital, resides at the schoolboose with his wife, 
lie is a converted Mahometan, llie followers of Mahomet are in this city very numerooa. 

^The school is pertly for destitnte children, of whom three have been received, all of 
then from the beggar class, which in Peking is extremely large. It is hoped that sufficient 
funds will be obtained for the school from local sources, and that the number of poor little 
outcasts thus reclaimed from a life of beggary and probable crime maybe increased. There 
^re nine day scholars besides, who are neither orphans nor .beggars, but the children of 
persons able to provide them with food and clothing, but not with education. Such an 
Institution, under the care of a suitable native convert, if adapted, in a city like this, to 
insure kindly regard from the resident population, and will tend to neutralize any alarm 
they may feel at our preaching against idolatry and the various native superstitions. 

" The new year, you will thus see, has opened for us cheeringly, and there is good reasoa 
to expect that Peking will prove a fruitful field for Missionary labour." 


Dr. Lockhart, our devoted and disinterested representative at Peking, has continued 
his multifarious and abundant labours throughout the year, and has had the happiness of 
imparting relief to multitudes of the afflicted and wretched; while his daily labours in the 
hospital have been accompanied by the faithful instructions of a Native Ohristian Teacher. 
The following are extracts from the Report of the hospital, which he first established and 
has since superintended in the city of Peking: — 

'<Tbe work of the hospital and dispensary has been carried on during the last twdve 
months without interruption. Considerable additions have been made to the acoommoda- 
tion for patients ; and, though the premises are necessarily very different from a European 
hospital, still they answer the purpose for which they were intended. 

" The same general plan has been followed this year as before. The out-patients have 
been attended to every day, and all classes of people have applied for relief. 

** There have been 10,251 separate cues attended to during the past twelve months. 
Numbers of these have been seen daily, or twice or thrice a week for a long time, and 
almost all of them several times ; but each case is registered only once, on being first seen^ 
and no record is kept of subsequent visits. 

" Many of the pi^ients have come from various cities and towns in the province, and also 
from different and distant places beyond the Great Wall. 

*' As to the religious instruction given to the patients, it may be stated, that many copies 
of the Chinese New Testament, and various books on the leading truths of Christianity, 
have been presented to them, and the Rev. J. Edkins and a Native Preacher have held daily 
services in the hall, during the time that the patients were waiting for their turn to go into 
the surgery. In this way much Christian knowledge has been imparted, and it is hoped 
not without good effect. We think that the endeavour to teach and to heal should be 
carried on together. 

" This establishment is not the only one now in Peking In connection with Protestant 
Missions. Dr. J. A. Stewart, of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, has lately 
obtained premises in another quarter of the city, and is beginning to attend patients at this 
new hospital, which it is hoped will be very successful, and answer bis highest expectations. 

" By the residence of Medical Missionaries, and the esUblishment of hospitals in Pekioff,

The evidence of every sncoeeding year tends to strengthen the claims of India npon the 
generous zeal and self-denying labours of the Chnrohes of Britain. The political changes 
which have occurred in that Empire of Nations, and the new relation of its millions to our 
Qneea, have already wrought the most beneficial results, and their future influence will 
prove of incalculable worth. The diffusion of education, the extension of commerce, the 
facilities of intercourse between the remotest provinces of the country, and between India 
and Great Britain itself-^these improvements, now in rapid progress, as they supply to the 
friends of Missions new opportunities for labour and new sources of encouragement, impose 
also new obligations for increasing seal and wider exertion. May the Churches of Britain 
arise to a sense of their deep responsibilities in relation to India, which the providence of 
God has so wonderfully associated with ourselves, and subjugated to the dominion of our 

Although the progress of our Indian Missions has not been recently marked by any 
striking events, or any large increase of converts in particuUr localities, yet it has been real 
aud decided. The continuance of Missionary labour for more than half a century, the 
circulation of the Holy Scriptures in the various languages of the country, with the growing 
eflbrts to promote education and social improvement, have all had a direct influence in 
weakening the faith of the people in the superstitions and absurdities of Hindoo idolatry, 
and in rendering their minds more accessible to the truths of the Gospel. 

The power of easte has been sensibly weakened, and many high-caste natives have at 
diflbrent times embraced the Gospel. During the last year three converts of high caste, 
two of them Knlin Brahmins, have been received into our Mission Church in Calcutta. 

Encouraging accessions have been made to our Churches, generally in the South, where 
hundreds have renounced heathenism, avowed themselves Christians, and placed themselves 
under the guidance and counsels of Christian teachers. 

The number of young men under training for the work of Evangelists is greater than at 
any former period ; and those that have already been ordained to the ministry, as pastors 
or evangelists, have diligently discharged the duties of their office, and have well sustained 
it by a consistent and unblemished Christian character. 

The lUeraUty of the Native Churches is a new and most encouraging feature of the 
times. Formerly the Hindoo converts were forward to complain of their poverty, and to 
seek help for themselves rather than extend it to others. But now they feel, to some 
extent, the convictions of Christian duty, and according to their ability raise considerable 
contributions for the support of the Native ministry, the erection of chapels, the purchase 
of the Scriptures, and the education of their children. The Mission Church at Calcutta 
contributed last year not less than £60 towards the salary of the Pastor. Within the last 
three years the Christians throughout Trayanoobb have more than doubled their free-will 
offerings to the cause of God; and in one district last year they rose from £46 to nearly 
£180. These instances of Christian liberality are not solitary, but the same improved state 
of feeling is manifested, though in different degrees, throughout our Indian Missions. 

The Government Schools of India have been rapidly extended, and the number of 
scholars has largely increased. In these the education given is highly valuable, especially 
when contrasted with the absurdities and falsehoods taught in Native schools ; but it is 
wholly secular— iht Bible bebg authoritatively excluded. The influence of such a defective 
system upon the native mind has been repeatedly stated with great force by Missionaries 
and other competent witnesses. In Calcutta, where the Government system has been 
lonfetl in operation, and its influence most doarly seen, the last Report of our Auxiliary 


Society contains, in the case of a young Brahmin 'convert, a striking illoatration. The 
description given of this yonth by a Hindoo Evangelist is as follows : — 

" Kali Prosnnno Chowdy is an inhabitant of Srcenagore, a village of Dacca. His father 
is a man of some influence, and a thorough-going orthodox Hindoo. It is needless to say 
that he did all be coald to make his boy walk in bis own footsteps. For a time his 
expectations were more than realized. His son did live and act as a Hindoo. But the 
prevailing mania for English education and its prospective advantages infected him, and, in 
an unpropitious moment, as he would now regard it, he sent his son to the Government 
School at Borrisant, to learn the language and literature of the West. As Kali Prosnnno 
grew older, and advanced in his studies, his mind became more expanded, his understanding 
more enlightened, and, before many years had elapsed, he found out that to worship idols 
was the greatest wickedness a human being could be guilty of. He lost all faith in 
Hindooism ; this was indeed the result of the education he received in the school. Bnt 
what further influence did that education exercise over his mind ? It had uprooted from 
within him all love and veneration for the religion of his fathers; but what did it give him 
as its substitute ? Here the Government system of education is utterly powerless—its 
insufficiency and incompleteness must be admitted. A system which cultivates the mind 
and sharpens the intellect only, without at all touching the heart, is worthless to man as a 
moral and respontible being — a being whose present hap])ine8s and whose future and eternal 
destiny solely depend upon the entire consecration of self to the great Author of his life. 

*• Under such circumstances, our young friend was very restless in mind. Peace he wanted 
— peace he sought after ; but, alas, he found it not I There was no one then within the 
boundary of his knowledge who could say to him, in accents of compassionate love, * Peace, 
be still. Son, be of good cheer ; thy sins are forgiven thee V Like a wearied, thirsty, fainting 
traveller, in an almost boundless sandy desert, he longed for water; but the fountain of 
living water opened up on the summits of Calvary was as yet concealed from his view. 
In this state of mind he joined the local Brahroo Sumaj, and, for a time, seemed to like its 
theories ; but his sin-stricken soul could gain no satisfaction from them. Where else can 
satisfaction be found bnt in Jesus ? Who else but the Lamb of God can ' take away our 
sins ?' Who but the great Sun of Righteousness can dispel the thick darkness of our inner 
man ? What but the truth as it^is in Jesus can make us free from the bondage of sin ? 
What else but the blood, the precious blood of the Son of man, can rescue us from the never- 
ending torments of hell ? These glorious truths Kali Prosunno had yet to learn." 

Happily, in the case of this young Brahmin, as in many others, the education he had 
received, defective as it was, led him to seek from other sources for higher wisdom, and, by 
God's mercy, he found it. 

This great and essential defect in the system of Government education is supplied in 
Mission Schools; and, as that system is rapidly extending, so ought Christian Schools to be 
multiplied. The only obstacle to such increase is the want of suitable agents and adequate 
funds. Although it is universally known that the Bible is always taught in our schools, 
and not only taught, but that its Divine truths are explained and enforced upon the pupils, 
yet these schools are filled, and, in many instances, preferred to those from which the Bible 
is excluded. 

In our schools also weekly payments are required ; and this, instead of diminishing the 
number of pupils, serves rather to enhance the value of the instruction given, while the fees 
received greatly diminish the expenses of the Institution. 

In the School at Bangalore the payments for the year amounted to 

In the Schools at Bbllart, to • . • • 

In the School at Madras, to . 

In the Schools at Calcutta, to .... 

At Bangalore, in addition to the school fees, £30 St, Ud, was realized by the sale of 
needle-work done by the girls ; and at Neyoor the work of the girls produced £35 10«. 9<f. 

One of the most important and hopeful indications of the advancement of the native 
mind appears in the extension of education among the females of India. This good vrork 
has, to a limited extent, been carried on for many years in the schools superintended by the 
wives of our Missionaries, and firom these many Christian wWel alad mothers have gone

forth, who are diflViting blessings in their households. These females have generally belonged 
to the hnmbter classes of society ; but efforts have been commenced, and are now extending, 
to impart knowledge to the higher ranks of Hindoo women, and thongh it is bat the day of 
small tbiogs, we may confidently expect the happiest resolts. Now, indeed, many of the 
educated Hindoos are desirous that their wives and daughters should receive the advantages 
of education, and are actually employing means to promote their mental improvement. 
And in no single department could wise and benevolent efforts be employed with greater 
advantage to India, than by the enlightenment and elevation of the female population. 

The system of Zenana visitation to the females of respectable Hindoo families is a means 
of Christian usefulness of great promise ; and, although not to be accomplished without 
jnuch difficulty and manifold discouragements, it is silently extending. 

A more striking evidence of the advance of the public mind of India in favour of educa- 
tion, and in sentiments of respect and esteem for Chrislian Missionaries, could scarcely be 
found than in the contrast of the misrepresentation, ridicule, and reproach with which 
Dr. Durp commenced his noble and disinterested career in India, and the accumulated 
honoors heaped upon him when he left its shores — honours rendered to him not only by his 
eoontrymen of the highest rank, but by the most distinguised Hindoos in the city of 

Although the Directors are thankful in being able to present these favourable indications 
of the state and prospects of our Indian Missions, they are constrained to add, that the 
entire Christian agency employed by all Missionary Institutions for the redemption of 
India from its debasing and destructive idolatry falls far short of the magnitude and urgency 
of the occasion, and of our sacred obligations to our Divine Master and Lord. The harvest 
is great — all but boundless— but the labourers are few. " Pray ye therefore the Lord of the 
harvest that He would send forth labourers into His harvest." 

Not only must the number of labourers be multiplied, and their qualifications largely in- 
creased, but such are the gigantic obstacles to be overcome, that all will end in failure 
unattended by the almighty and gracious power of the Holy Spirit. In these promised 
succours all our hopes must centre, and for their enlarged bestowment must our earnest 
prayers ascend. 


Changes the most important, and events the most tragical, were actually occurring in the 
capital of Madagascar at the very time our Anniversary Services of last year were in the 
course of celebration. On the 10th of May and following two days the Government of 
Radama II. was subverted, his life sacrificed, his evil counsellors cut off, and a new 
Goyemment, under the Queen and the chief nobles of the country, inaugurated. The 
intelligence of these events was, to the Directors and the friends of the Society, altogether 
unexpected, and, indeed, directly opposed to their strongest anticipations and most sanguine 
hopes. The Rby. William Ellis thus announces these momentous changes : — 

"Seldom has the instability of human affairs been more strikingly, and, in some respects, 
tragically manifested, than in the events of the last few days in this city. Within that 
period the reign of Radama II. has closed with his life ; a successor has been chosen by the 
nobles, and accepted by the people ; a new form of Government has been inaugurated, and 
it is arranged that the legislative and administrative functions of the sovereignty shall here- 
after be discharged by the Sovereign, the nobles, and the heads of the people, jointly. A 
seriea of resolutions, embodying what may be regarded as the germs of Constitutional 
Government, has been prepared and presented by the nobles and heads of the people, to the 
Queen, containing the conditions on which they offered her the crown. The acceptance of 
the conditions by Rauodo, and their due observance by the nobles and heads of the 
people, were attested by the signatures of the Queen and the chief of the nobles before the 
former was announced to the people as their future Sovereign, and proclaimed under the 
titie of RAaoARuisNA^ Queen of Madagascar." 


Mr. Bllif proceed! to aoeount for the rerolutioBy lo far m it relttes to the Itte King, m 
follows :— 

** Amiable and enlightened, as in several respects Radama certainly was, his views of the 
duties of a mler were exceedingly defectiye, and almost all government for the good of the 
country may be said to have b^n in abeyance ever since his accession. The destruction of 
a large part of the revenue of Government by the abolition of all duties ; the exclusion from 
his councils of many of the nobles and most experienced men in the nation, while he sur- 
rounded himself with a number of young, inexperienced, and many of them most objection- 
able men as his confidential adTisers ; the relaxation or discontinuance of all efforts to 
repress crime, or punish it when committed, and the neglect of all measures for placing the 
prosperity of the country on any solid basis, have, notwithstanding the affection many of the 
people bore him, produced growing dissatisfaction." 

The RsY. Robert Tot describes the character of Radama in still darker oolonrs :— 

*' It is tme," he writes, *^ that the King was of an affable, humane, and genial disposition ; 
but he was also conceited, frivolous, irreligious, most licentioas, and in almost every respect 
totally unfit to govern a country. His government, if such it could be called, was of the 
most wretched description, and his life, since coming to the throne, has for the most part 
been passed in amusements of the lowest kind. Serious in the presence of seriously dis- 
posed foreigners, he would turn them into ridicule as soon as they had left him. He utterly 
despised the counsels of his best friends, and those who were legally his advisers* and 
pampered those who have been the cause of his ruin." 

The picture here presented of the rapid course of degeneracy on the part of the late King, 
which appears to liave commenced soon after his coronation, renders it obvions that his 
unhappy death was brought about by his gross dereliction of the duties devolving on a 
sovereign, and by his abandonment to degrading vices. Nevertheless, as Mr. Toy justly 
remarks, " it should never be forgotten that, however much he changed in his conduct 
towards the Christians during the latter part of his short reign, he had previously rendered 
them good service, and for their present position and strength they are in no small degree 
indebted to him. Had he been willing to abandon his follies, and to have chosen wise and 
judicious counsellors, he would probably at this moment hate been ruling over a happy, 
united, and prosperous people.'' 

The avowed principles of the new Government are enlightened, just, and beneficent, and, 
if faithfully observed by the Sovereign and her ministers, they cannot fail to work results 
the most beneficial to all classes of the Malagasy people. The following articles in the 
proposed form of government are the most important :— 

" The word of the Sovereign alone is not to be law, but the nobles and heads of the 
people, with the Sovereign, are to mske the laws. 

** Perfect liberty and protection is guaranteed to all foreigners who are obedient to the 
laws of the country. 

*' Friendly relations are to be maintained with all other nations. 

'' Duties are to be levied, but commerce and civilization are to be encouraged. 

'* Protection, and liberty to worship, teach, and promote the exteniion of Christianity, 
are secured to the Native Christians, and the tame protection and libcorty are goarante^ to 
those who are not Christians. 

** Domestic slavery is not abolished; but masters are at liberty to give freedom to their 
slaves, or to sell them to others. 

"No person is to be put to death for any offence, by the word of the Sovereign alone ; 
and no one is to be sentenced to death till twelve men have declared such person to be 
guilty of the crime to which the law awards the punishment of death." 

Both as Englishmen and Christians we must heartily rejoice at the change firom absolute 
despotism to the principles of Constitutional Government; but whether the infiuential 
classes in Madagascar sincerely value, or know how to improve these good principles, time 
only can determine. Hitherto, however, the Queen and her Government have pnctieally 
adhered to the new law^ and especially to that which is the most interesting and importani 
to the Mission Chnrohet, namely, the law which secures protection and liberty to worship.

tcaek, and promote the exteniion of Chrittiaiiity among the people of lladagatear. '< No, 
impediment,'' uyi Mr. BUif, '' is offered or allowed to the perfectly free action of the 
Christians, alike in the enjoyment of their own priTileget and their efforts to extend the 
Gospel to others ;" and onr Missbnaries express not only their hope, bnt their expectation 
from the constant increase of the Christians in the capital, and especially from among the 
higher classes of society, that any return to persecntion for the truth's sake would become 
not only difficult, but impracticable. The patronage of such a ruler as the late Radama 
could not fail to be injurious rather than beneficial to the interests of pure Christianity ; and 
if the pKsent Sovereign and her GoTcmment continue to administer the law granting 
religions freedom and equaUty, with justice and impartiality, the Native Church will 
possess all that it can claim, and all that will really conduce to its stability and usefulness. 

At the close of 1863 the Christians of Antananarivo presented themselves in a body to 
the Queen, who received their addresses with evident pleasure, and gave them repeated 
assurances of her satisfaction. Mr. Ellis gives an interesting narrative of the day's pro- 
oetdinga: — 

" Ou Christmas Day the heads of the Christians expressed a wish to pay their respects to 
the Qoeen, and her Mijesty signified her pleasure to receive them. Early in the morning 
of that day the congregations assembled in their respective chapels. The places were all 
crowded, though the services were closed soon after eight o'clock. The several congrega- 
tions then proceeded, some of them singing as they went, to Andohalo, the place of public 
assemblies. In company with some of the Brethren, I proceeded to the place of gathering. 
On our way we met the Prime Minister and some of the nobles going to the palace; but the 
road was so thronged with Christians, that their bearers could with difficulty make their 
way through the crowd. On reaching Andohalo an animating spectacle presented itself. 
In this natural amphitheatre, situated in the heart of the city, not fewer, certninly, than 
7000 Christians were assembled. Some were standing or leisurely walking to and fro, 
others sitting under umbrageous and fruit-bearing ^-trees. Fathers and mothers with 
their children were there, young men and maidens, pastors and their spiritual flocks, all in 
their holiday attire. All seemed perfectly at ease and conscious of secnrityi while the 
grateful joy of the heart seemed to beam in every countenance, and find utterance in every 

** While the leaders of the Christians were arranging the several companies, we proceeded 
through the crowded way to the neighbourhood of the large palace, and were soon after 
followed by the Christians walking four abreast. Among the front ranks were civil and 
military officers of 13th and 14lh Honours, officers of the palace, as well as others of lower 
rank, mingled with pastors, preachers, and deacons, followed by the whole body of the 
Chrifllians, the men walking first, and the women afterwards. Joining with them, we led 
the way to the palace, the general residence of the Queen. Here the Christians filled every 
available spot of ground in front of the balustrade within which the royal seat was placed. 
The members of the roval family and officers were ranged on the left ; the ladies in waiting, 
the ministers and members of the Government, on the right. When the Queen came out 
of the palace she was welcomed with hearty graetings from the vast assembly. As these 
snbaided» several parties of singers sang what may be termed the National Anthem, and a 
hymn imploring the Divine blessing on the Queen. An officer then advanced a little in 
front of the rest, tendered the salutations of the Christians to her Majeaty, and presented 
the customary Hasina, which the Queen very cheerfully acknowledged. The choirs 
belonging to the several city congregations afterwards saog with good effect several hymns 
and anthems. Rainimamonjisoa, an intelligent, gifted, and infiuential officer, also an aide- 
de-camp to the Prime Minister, then st^ forward, and, in the name of his fellow- 
Christians, addressed the Queen with much readiness and force, assuring her Majesty of 
their loyalty and gratitude for their privil^s, of their devotednesa to the Government, and 
earnest desires to promote the welfare of all classes. The Queen made a short and 
approving reply, and by gestures as well as words assured the vast assembly of the satis£sc- 
tion which their presence and the declaration of their attachment had afforded. The high 
officers and other members of the Court seemed surprised and pleased with the singing of the 
Christians; and after the hitter had again sung the National Anthem, her Mi^ty rose and 
re-entered the palace amidst the cordial greetings of the multitude, who then returned 
to their rcq^ecUve homes. 


The strange and happy contrast between the scene thus described and the public as- 
semblies which, in former years, were convened on the same spot to hear the Christians 
sentenced to slavery and to death, cannot fall to inspire our grateful praise to thdr God 
and ours, and to strengthen our trust in Him for the future safety and prosperity of His 

Two important measures have recently been commenced in the capital. In the month 
of January the foundation of the first Meuorial Churc^ was laid by the Prime Minister, 
assisted by our yenerable friend Mr. £Uis ; and in the same month the erection of a 
Hospital, for the relief of the poor and afflicted, was also commenced. The latter, we 
trust, will prove a valuable auxiliary to Missionary labour, and a real blessing to multitudes 
of sufferers. 

"The Natives," says Dr. Davidson, "although they are considerably removed from u 
state of barbarism, and have attained to a certain degree of advancement in many of the 
useful arts, are entirely ignorant of medical science. The priests arc their physicians : their 
medical and religious superstitions form parts of one system. The Malagasy word od^ 
signifies at the same time medicine and charm, and thus we find that the chief or only 
means of cure are incantations and charms. Surgery is unknown : the simplest operations 
are not attempted. The numbers who daily apply for medicine and advice evince the value 
put upon the dispensary by the Malagasy. More substantial proofs are not wanting. The 
nobles have contributed cheerfully towards the erection of the buildings ; and while none 
arc refused medicine because they are unable to pay for it, yet many, even of the poorest, 
willingly give a small sum as they are able, to help to meet the current expenses of the 
establishment.' ' 

During the past year the Printing Preti has been brought into full operation, and both 
Day and Sunday Schools have been established. 

Mr. Ellis, with all his fellow-labourers, bears the most explicit testimony to the progress 
of the Gospel, and the increase of believers, both in the capital and the country. 

^* With regard to the prospects of the Mission among the people," writes Mr. Sibree, 
** nothing can be more encouraging. The five chapels in the city are crowded every Sunday, 
and two more are in course of erection. Both adults and children are eager for knowledge, 
and there is perfect liberty of action. A very large population in villages around the capital 
are ready for the Gospel ; for heathenism here seems never to have had that all-absorbing 
power and influence which most systems of idolatry have." 

Our Missionary Brethren give most gratifying reports of the several congregations to 
whom they minister the Word of Life. The following letter from the Rbt. W. E. Covsiks, 
dated January Ist, is selected as an illustration :— 

" When I wrote to you last October I think I told you we had just finished a new chapd 
at Amparibe. When you hear that it was less than three months in building you will not 
expect that it has any great architectural claims ; still, it is spacious, clean, light, and com- 
fortable, and I am most thankful to have it instead of the dark, dirty, patchwork place 
which we pulled down. It is built of clay. The walls are nearly two feet thick, and eleven 
feet high. The size of the building inside is fifty-nine feet by forty ; the roof is made of 
rushes. The whole cost of the building was paid by the congregation : the amount sub- 
scribed in money was 139 dollars ; but, in addition to this, many gave wood, doors, windows, 
and other materials used in the building. Our old chapel was such a miserable place that 
all felt the need of a new one ; and all joined most zealously in pulling down the old one, 
and putting up the present building. On the Sabbath morning of our opening the number 
of persons was counted as they went out, and it was found that 1500 had been accommodated 
inside the building : there were also some two or three hundred outside. From the day of 
opening, our congregations have been large : last Sunday morning we were as full as we 
had ever been. 

*' During the past year the Church has largely increased. The number of new members 
admitted in less than twelve months is 182. About eighty have been dismissed to the 
newly formed Churches; and I can see much improvement when I compare the internal 
state of the Churches as we found them with their present condition. The attenrion aod 

FOR JUNE, 1864. 183 

behtTionr of the people are much better, and the preachers are quite as earnest and faithful, 
but more careful as to what they say. 

" The heaTy rains which are now falling almost daily render it impracticable to visit the 
village Churches, but all with which I am acquainted are in a prosperous condition." 

Although our Missionaries regard the capital and its environs as having the first claim 
upon their zeal and assiduity, they are glad to embrace any practicable opportunity of examin* 
ing the state of the people in remote districts, and of doing all they can to promote their 
Christian order and edification. A recent letter of Mr. Cousins gives an interesting picture 
of society in Vonezongo, and especially of the number of Native Christians and the state 
of the Churches. He was the first European Missionary who, since the days of persecution, 
had journeyed to that distant part of the island. As the result of his visit he ascertained 
that the number of Christians exceeds six hunAred, and that there are three Churches con- 
taining more than a hundred and twenty members. * 

Envoys from the Queen and Government of Madagascar have recently arrived in this 
country, with the view of obtaining some modification in the treaties of commerce between 
the late King and the Governments of Great Britain and France. They have been favour- 
ably received by the members of our Government, and have been honoured with interviews 
by her Majesty the Queen. The Directors hold these distinguished strangers in high 
respect; and they very earnestly hope that the objects of their appointment may be attained, 
and that commerce, amity, and peace may hereafter be honourably maintained between 
Great Britain and France with Madagascar* 

The Society has now completed the sbtbmtibth year of its history; and, while the 
review should inspire its Directors and Constituents with sorrow and humiliation that their 
services have been characterized by weakness and imperfection, they should still be animated 
with joy and praise that their limited and feeble agency has been mighty through God to 
the pulling down of the strongholds of heathenism, and the wide extension of the Saviour's 
kingdom in every field of effort. 

In the IsLBS op the Pacipic, where revolting pollution and horrid cruelty tyrannized 
without restraint ; in our Western Colonies, where the curse of slavery rested, both 
upon the African stranger and his English oppressor ; in the deserts of South Aprica., 
where the natives, inspired with mutual hatred, were victims in common to cruel supersti- 
tions and brutal debasements ; in China, with its multitudinous millions, shut, and, to 
human foresight, impenetrably shut, against the servants of the living God ; in India, 
where British authority was employed to perpetuate the monstrous evils of idolatry, and 
exclude from the idolater the blessings of the Gospel ; in Madagascar, where the early 
triumphs of the Cross insured for the defenceless converts deadly hatred and cruel persecu- 
tion — in all these distant and wide-spread territories of darkness the brave and devoted 
champions we have sent forth have planted the standard of the Cross, and sent up to heaven 
the exultant strain, ** Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in 
Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of His knowledge by us in every place." 

Let us, then, not dishonour ourselves, nor dishonour the Saviour whom we serve, by the 
utterance of complaint or the indulgence of dissatisfaction ; but, in common with every divi- 
sion of the great Missionary host, with whom we go forth to the help of the Lord against the 
mighty, let us with grateful hearts exclaim, "The Lord hath done great things for us, 
whereof we arp glad." And, as we behold what God hath wrought, with faith strengthened 
and hope made confident, let us go forward, and He will show us greater things, and lead 
us on to triumphs yet more glorious. " A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one 
a strong nation." And, though the time may be distant, yet it is as sure as the dawn of to- 
morrow, when the Church, triumphant over every form of Paganism and Anti-Christ, shall 
vnitc in the adoring acclamation, " Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who only 


doeth wondroui things. And blesied be His glorioiu name for erer.^ Let lit, ih«i»liui6ti 
on that day by the earnest and unceasing prayer, " Let the whole earth be filled with His 
glory; Amen, and Amen." 

The Rev. Thomas Jones moved the following Resolution — 

** That the Report, of which an Abttract haa been giTen, be apptored and adopted, atid that it be 
forthwith printed and circulated by the Directors. That this Meeting devoutly acknowledges the 
special mercy of God. which has been vouohsafed to the London Misaionary Society thronghont the

The first thing in the Reaolation is, that the Report which has been read be approved— 
that is, that you are to like it ; that it be adopted, taken under your care, printed, circulated, 
and, I should have added, read by the Churches. It is a faithful record of what has been 
done during tlte past year by your Sodety, and it well deserves the attention of all who are 
interested in the spread of the Gospel. I have heard it said that our Reports are not much 
read. Now I want to say a word about this. The cause may be— 4f the charge is true — 
that the Missionary ipirit is feeble in our Churches. I find in the country that although 
farmers are not the quickest of apprehension in the world — slow to move, they take all 
their lessons from nature, and nature is deliberate and ilow ; here in Loudon you are in a 
hurry, at though doomsday were to be in a few weeks ; but eternity is very long. Though 
the farmers are alow to move, they can speak most fluently of the weather, the prospects of 
the season, and the coming harvest. And why ? Only because they are interested in such 
things. Now, my friends, if you are interested in the spread of the Gospel — if your hearts 
yearned over a dead world — you will watch with anxious hearts the progress of the great 
work, and be thankful for any report that would tell you that a human soul had been 
plucked from the burning. Another remark : the writers of that Report have endeavoured 
to place the facts therein contained in a readable form. I commend this much. We must 
avoid by all possible and fair means a spiritless Report. I do not see why religious books 
should be dull at all. or why a dull speech should be delivered, a dull sermon composed, or 
a lifeless report written. There is a Missionary report in the New Testament. It is the 
first record of Missionary enterprise — the Book of the Acts of the Apostles, llie records 
therein contained are beautiful as apples of gold in pictures of silver. Read the history of 
the Pentecost carefully, and you will almost see the tongues of fire, and feel the rush of the 
mighty wind. Pass through God's works. All His works are done in truth ; yes, and He hath 
made all things beautiful in their season. Truth^clotlied in beauty ; this is the characteristic of 
God's book and of God's works. There is more than use in all things. There are wavelets on 
the lake; the fountain sparkles as it springs; the brook murmurs as it fiows ; the sunlight pUys 
on the autumn dew ; the cold wintry morning has a fringe of gold and fire. There are flowers 
in the field, and there are stars in the heavens ; there is melody in the human voice, and 
beauty in the human face; daisies grow on the churchyard sod. The world is very beauti- 
ful. Oh I my God, I thank Thee that I live 1 And shall we write a lifeless Report? Shall 
we deliver lifeless sermons ? Nay ! we will have truth wedded to beauty — trut^ baptized 
with spiritual life, and then we hope our Reports will be read. Get these two things — a 
vigorous Missionary spirit in the country, and a noble Report such as we have heard this 
morning — and then there will be many readers. There is another thing in this Resolution of 
which I wish to speak. It calls for enlarged and more earnest exertions for the conversion 
of the heathen. Now that is general language ; I wish to make it special. I would o^ 
for two things. I would call for more Missionaries to go forth to heathen lands. We have 
just heard that five Missionaries have died during the past year^ and some must come 
forward and be baptized for the dead. I aaa well aware that the prosperous and respectable 
professions, the delightful pursuits of art, and science, and general literature have vast 
charms for educated young men ; but I desire to see young men of talent, education, un- 
doubted piety, and aptness to teach, present themselves for this service of Jesus Christ. I 
think I am right when I say that the service of Christ, in this most du-ect way of serving 
Him, ought to possess the highest charm for the ablest young men in our Churches. It is 
complained in the Establishment that the first class of minds are deserting the pulpit, and 
that their place is being filled by second-rate men. I am sorry to hear it I admire the 
great statesman. I bow to the mighty poet. I pay homage to the great painter. Power, 
intellect, gifts divine, I worship you anywhere I But God's pulpit I thou oughtest not to 
be weak. Nay, I mean to say that it will not be a good day, a chearlul day, for EnglaBd,

when the first minds tnrn away from preaching the Gospel. Let able young men think of 
this subject, and ask themseWes whether it be their duty to offer themselves to Christ's 
senice in England or abroad ? Charms, sirs ! I know of nothing possessing such chmrms 
as preaching the Gospel. I like to spend my week in my study, listening prayerfully to the 
Toice of Divine love, and on a Sunday morning to interpret to my friends the secrets I have 
heard during the week. I do like to go there and, standing as it were on the threshold 
of God's great heaven, push the curtain aside, and let in a flood of golden glory upon the 
worldly minds of many who hear me preach. Charms, indeed I Why, my yoang sirs, talk 
of charms, I tell you what you shall do. You shall preach the Gospel to the poor: is there 
00 charm in that ? You shall heal the broken-hearted : is there no charm in that ? Yon 
shall preach deliverance to the captive : is there no charm in that ? You shall live a noble 
life of usefulness: is there no charm in that? One day, wrinkled, weak, and shattered, you 
also shall die, but die in the embrace of the love of those whom yon have blessed : flowers 
watered by their tears shall grow on your grave. Christ will give you the crown of life. 
Charms ! Why, sirs, I would not sacrifice that charm for all the thrones of Euiope 1 Let 
young men think of this and offer themselves for this service of Christ. One word more 
with regard to this call for more earnest effort. Our offerings of gold and silver ought to 
be multiplied. "For brass I will bring gold, for iron I will bring silver;" hoary-headed, 
old prophecy, thou hast been there for ages in the great Bible waiting thy fulfilment. I beg 
to suggest, my Lord, that it is high time the Church should turn that prophecy into history. 
Our offerings of gold and of silver should amount to self-denial and sacrifice. Let me quote 
a verse from the New Testament: *'They of their abundance had cast into the treasury; 
she her all." The rich people at Jerusalem of their abundance ; the poor woman gave her 
all ; and that was just the thing that attracted His eye ; not the largeness of the gift, but the 
principle from which it started. There is an admirable definition of the word "abundance " 
in an old English dictionary. Abundance, the author says, is more than enough. In old- 
fashioned places in the country, mills are still worked by water-power and not by steam. 
You will find that there is an obstruction put across the river, and an artificial channel out 
to convey the water from the river to the water-wheel; and then there is a small ehannel 
out of that to carry the superabundant water to the river. The mill is to have the ''enough," 
and the river the more than enough. Now, we ought to give a little of the enough, and 
make a little sacrifice for Him who sacrificed all for us. Arithmetic is not a very poetic 
science. In fact I never liked it on account of that. I don't believe much in it. And yet, 
take arithmetic high enough, and there is a great deal of inspiration in it. For instance, 
£500,000 in our Annual Report. Is there not poetry in that ? Or, better still, the London 
Missionary Society's income — £1,000,000! I mean to say that that reads quite musical. A 
column of black smoke becomes transparent the moment it passes up into the sunshine ; and 
this dull column of contributions in our Annual Report would become perfectly readable if 
inspired by twenties, hundreds, thousands, five hundred thousands, and especially a million. 
Bo not think I am speaking unwisely, I am not setting it at too high a sum. I am afraid we 
shall not do it next year ; but, brethren, the time is coming when it will be done. Remember 
my mill illustration. Give a little of the enough, as well as of the more than enough ; and the 
Report of your Society shall say £500,000 towards the London Missionary Society. Oh, 
England, it is nothing to thee! I read the columns of thy warlike expenditure. Thou 
canst, as it were, let down a spectral palace from the clouds in Kensington. Like a play- 
thing, in six months thou hast means to take it in pieces, and let it down again on the 
beautiful hills of Surrey. Oh, England, it is nothing to thee I Thy ships plough the waves 
of every sea ; thy wealth circulates through the arteries of the whole of human society. Oh, 
England ! shame ! Thy little j£^ 1,000 — shame ! We are here not merely to say what we 
have done, but we are here to say what we ought to do ; and I hope we shall go on towards 
the "ought " until it is realized. The next thing in my Resolution is that yon recognise 
the power and the work of the Divine Spirit. Brethren, I want to say a word or two con- 
cerning this. We live in an age when it is thovght more philosophic to go away firom the 
spiritual and the supernatural, and to become somewhat materialized in onr mode of thinking. 
Now, I differ from that entirely. What I want to assert is, that you cannot separate the 
Gospel from the supernatural. Do away with the supernatural, and your Gospel is gone. 
For instance, it rests on a supematnral fact ; it is supported by supernatural power. The 
supernatural fact is the resurrection of Jesns Christ from the dead. *' If Christ be not 
risen, then is our preaching vain, and your fsith is also vain." Christianity — Gkni's 
temple, consecrated temple, lighted up with the hopes of many ages, the house in which 
are heard the praises of ten thousand hearts — if Christ be not risen, thou hast fallen into 
thyself like a palace of ice in the winter's sun ; thou hast melted and vanished away. 
Without the supernatural, Christianity is not. In a celebrated book which has produced 


greatt agitatiMm in England during the hut three or four years, I ilv4 it asterted tiiat the 
vnbroken conitane^r of natural causes is a primary law of bdfef; that the inductive- 
philosophy, by an immense aecunralation of evidence, confirms this belief, and that tfaa» 
belief is so fixed in the mind (mark this) that no ind«et&ve im]airer can beUere in a miracle. 
People who are not in«kictive philosophers may, but no isducttve inquirer oan believe in a 
miracle. Wonderful induction ! I have three ob^tions to that ; the first ia, thttt inductire 
philosophy is only a youth ; he whs only born the ocher day. There are many ibinfcs,. 
both in the earth and in the heavens, that are not dreamed ef in the inductive philo&opiiy. 
The universe is very large, and God is very wonderful. Let indnctive philosophy 
be humble. Let it do its work diligently, prayerfnily, trustingly, hambly, but let 
not the youth make reckless assertions. In this grand old creation take time, thoa 
stripling philosophy. Don't make these large, broad assertions, lest thoa shetv thj 
youth and thy folly by so doing. Thou wilt be heartily sorry fbr it by and by when 
thou oomevt to maturity. Secondly, it does not appear to me— I wbh to spei^ 
Mrly — good metaphysics to say that the primary ktws of our belief become stpength. 
ened by experience. Will yon think of it for a moment ? Your belief in can^ttiea 
dees not increase with knowledge. It is as strong in a boy as in a man. Yon 
have a curly-headed little fellow at home; j«st knock at t^e door; he asks w1k> did 
that. He never thought that it did itself. The idea of causation is as strong in him as in 
yon. Understand once, that the three angles of a triangle are equal to two right angles 
and seeing all the angles m creation will not make you believe it more strongly. Or tidsp 
another illustration. Increased knowledge in the science of numbers does not make a man 
more sure that two and two make four. I am no great arithmetician, yet I believe that a» 
well as any of you. I wish to speak most respMtfully of learning, and of learned and 
scholaiff men ; but I do mean to say that we very often allow reckless things to pass lor 
great depths when they are great shallows. There is nothing like taking hold of a thing and 
looking at it — saying. What are you, and what is your business here ? — taking it to pieoes 
and anriyzinfc it. After all that is said about removing the supematnral foundations, I ana 
glad to say that the foundation of God standeth sure, and there are many here resting upon 
it — the everiasting Rock of all Ages. There was a ^ird objection. As a matter of fact, it 
is not true that no inductive inquirer can believe in a miracle. I should be very aorry to 
think there is bo inductive philosopher here ; but, according to this, if you believe in n 
miracle, you are not and cannot be one. I mean to assert that there are hundreds of men 
in England, who are not strangers to Bacon's methad of philosophy— men who have read 
the histories of philosophy, who have gone into the beautiful, charming, bewitching meadow- 
land of philosophy — men who have looked on her beaatiful feoe and been thriUed by tha 
wonderful influence that goes forth from it Let no one suppose I am speaking ag^uaat 
learning and philosophy. There are, I say, many philosophers in this room who still 
believe m miracles. They believe, for instance, that Christ died on the cross 1800 
years ago, rose from the dead— that He k to^y living in heaven; and, more than thiC^ 
they trust all that they have and are into the hands af Christ, and they say every nighl 
and every Boommg, *< Whom have I in heaven but Thee ; I desire noae on earth besida 
Thee." Christ I Thou art my all in both worMi. Here I serve Thee, and when, fluttaring 
and trembling, soy timid spirit lands in the great spirit world, it is Thy smiling face 1 
expect to see welcoming me home. Yes, there are many inductive philosophers who can 
and do believe in miracles. The Gospel is spread by a supernatural power ; it is the work 
of the Holy Spirit. The older I become, the more firmly I believe in the neeesaity for 
the coming down of God — not only God's truth, but God himself, into oontaet with the 
human mind. An able American writer has said that if one of the planets became prodigal, 
and broke away from its orbit, nothing coald bring it back firom the region of winter and 
nigh^ but the going of the sun to fetch it. He would have to go and throw his long arou 
of gravitation around the unwise young comet, and thus he would carry it back. Brethren, 
we did break away from our Father. We went into a strange country, and found it 
darkness and death. And what did He ? He came down Himself. God in omr natun 
appeared in the person of Christ. Great Christ, we bless Thee I Through Jesus ChriBt 
God came down — lays hold of the wandering one, places him in his orbit again, wham kt 
shall revolve in peace afouad tfcie throne of God for ever and ever. Brethren, thie is the 
grand power in the Church, the presenee of God's Spirit. I think no man can live in 
London without feeling the absolute necessity for God's Spirit coming into the minds aC 
men to make them good and holy. That is die greatest power in the world. Int^leci 
is power. A man who had been to Higbgate, talking with a great English phi l esep he r 
who is now no more, said, on speaking of him afterwards, *' I was silent in his p r e se ne e ; 
I could not speak ; bis power oppressed me." There is great power in intellect. When 

FOE JUNE, 1864. 187 

yoa meet a man that ii meottUj greater than yon are, he is king and yoa are the anbject. 
You OMj rebel against it, but still yoa know, as I know, you mast bow. Eloquence is a 
power in tbe Church. We are at the mercy of the eloquent speaker ; we are helpless in 
his hasida. We are tbe instrnmente ; ke is the player. He is Moses ; our hearts are the 
rocka. With his mystic rod he touches them one after the other, and the water gashes 
forth. I ahoald like to see all onr pulpits filled with eloquent men — men of flexible lip, 
men af ezpresave face—men who have that something whioh cannot be described, but which 
goes forth a quivering power from the battery of the speaker's heart. May God raise up 
men of abandant power in eloquent speaking ! But it is not by intellect ; it is not by 
eloquence ; it is " by My power and My Spirit," saith the Lord of Hosts. And let me 
say there have been days when the Church was a power in the earih. We read ef the 
horeic ages ; they are praised by tbe old poets aa the beautiful and distant ages when fact 
and myth embrace, where history and tradition meet — when tradition melts into history, 
and hiatary, like another colour in the raiabaw, melts back ioto tradition. In that/ 
beautiM period they have placed the iMroio ages when giants and Titans li'ved on the 
earth, and not small beings such as we are. Brethren, this is tradition, and myth, and 
poetry ; but there have been real heroic ages in the Cburoh af God, when Moses com« 
mnaed with God on the trembling brow of Sinai— when David eoosposed the spiritual 
hymae which thrill our hearts ia the nineteenth oeotary— when Isaiah with rapt seraphic 
fire spake to the sinful nations — when the Baptist thundered rebukes on the banks id 
Jordan — when the great Paul emptied the tempkn of Greece — when St. John saw visiotts 
ni Patflsoa — wlwn reformers straggled — when martyrs died— tbea there was power ia the 
Churches. Men were fiUed with the Holy Ghost. Ministers in England — we want power. 
Missionaries abroad — ye want power. Teachan in our oolleges — ^ye want power, net only 
to send forth scholars, but inspired yonag men. Deaooaa of our Churches — it is no time to 
sleep. Churches of the land — you ought not to be the dull, apachetie, material things 
Many of you ane. We cannot afford to he weak. Power everywhere. Power in the 
spriag, hcuating through the great rock ; power in the grass, cutting its way through the 
soil; power in the lightning iash; and shall the Church be weak? 1 see tbe syren 
pkasara, like another iffmis/atum crossing from marsh to marsh in the devil's land, where 
so many of onr youths are lost. Power enough hath the syren. Yes, Brethren, power is 
everywhere — and sbaU we be weak and leeble ? Our fathers sleep — let not the tbander 
disturb their slumbers — let not the lightntag^flash wither the flowers on their graves. 
Brave men were they. I Itke to shake hands with them across the ages. They did their 
work nobly ; they crossed the stage and were hurried beyond the scene into the darkness 
id death. They are gone, and we are here ; and shall we be weak ? I don't mean that we 
can heeome as Moses, and Jeremiah, and Paul ; but I do mean to say that as the ancient 
TttaDS went up to heaven and stole fire from the son, you may go aside with God, tonch 
the Divine mind, aod come forth Divine men, to mould the hearts af this aatioa, or to 
spread the Gospel of Christ in foreign lands. Yoa have heard me kindly. I have apoken 
out brotherly on this subject. May God bless you all ! May the power of the Lord God of 
Israel clothe His priests with salvation; may it be known in a dry, hard, harsh, sceptical 
age, that God is in Israel, and that religion is a power* 

The Hon. k, Kinnaird, M.P., in aeeonding the Resolution^ said,— After the remarkable 
address whkh we have just listened to, I confoss it looks like trifling ta address to you a 
few oommonplaoe observations whieh, as your Treasurer, perhaps, I am hound ta ofler. 
I feel it would be far better to sit and ponder over those aiighty truths which our inspected 
friend has presented before as. I think it would be well for as to take in and ponder and 
leAeot, rather than to attempt so soon to follow him. But I mnst congratulate you on ttte 
Report, which, though less eloquent ia words, is eloquent ia focts; and I mast, as your 
Treasurer, oengratulate you on this, that though we have oat yet reached to thai point 
. which the speaker who has just addressed yon spoke of, and which I, as your Treasurer, will 
fondly hope may be realized, though last year, through causes which we can all understand 
and sympathise with — namely, the distress In onr mannfoctaring districts, which was so 
aobly overcome and conquered by our worMng popalatmn — you had sosm foiling off in 
yoar funds ; yet this year I can oongratnlate yon on the foot that you have again reached 
the standard from whioh you bad departed. And I hope we shall all carry in mind the 
address we have heard, in whieh the speaker told us it is possible — and I believe it is fully 
passible, if we who are here present^ who are roost of us engaged so much in worldly 
callings, aoald but realize the high calfing to which he has pointed as — I believe it wonld 
not be long before your funds would reach j^lOO,000. But I shaU confine myself to a few 
observations suggested by the presence of my friends on my left, the Envoys from 


Madagascar, and which bringi back to my mind a field of labour full of instruction. And 
what have we learned in Madagascar ? Why, that that Word — that mighty Word which has 
been so eloquently allnded to by the reverend gentleman — the Word of Ood^alone is able 
to save souls, independently of any church organization whatever. Ttiat is the lesson that 
we have learned in Madagascar. It was the sowing of the Word, sometimes amid persecu- 
tion, that is now bearing truit; and we hear to-day in that Report these glad tidings from 
Madagascar, which show that the Word has secretly but effectively done iu work, and we 
have the Church in Madagascar rising more mighty, more grand than in any previous part 
of its history. But perhaps the best way is to take the converse, and let us figure to 
ourselves what Madagascar would have been without the Bible. And what wouM have 
been the condition of these islands in the Pacific from which such sad tidings come to us — 
what would they have been without the Gospel ? And I say it is for us to take these 
things to our hearts, and to work mightily in the service of our God and Saviour. It is 
these considerations, and from having long watched with the deepest interest the work of 
this Society, which induced me to accept the office of Treasurer ; and I trust that, if my 
life be spared, I shall be able to congratulate you on many successive occasions on 
the steady progress of the work. For myself, 1 trust that men will be at the call of 
call's need in our Church ; men as eloquent as our friend ; that young men will be raised up 
ready to go forth, as he says, to that glorious work so full of charms. But there is one 
point in the Report which I heard with great satis£sction^namely, the probability of an 
increased number of Missionaries being sent to India — India, that is connected with this 
country by so many wonderful ties. When we think of that vast country, and the teeming 
millions of India ; when we think that, with all our exertions for so many years, how very 
little have been, humanly speaking, the results, it is needless to consider the tact that 
however small in reference to these millions is the living Christianity there, yet I do not 
undervalue the fact, as stated in the Report, that civilization and nominal Christianity 
spread abroad in that land has in a marvellous manner prepared the way. I believe that the 
system of superstition has received a mighty shock ; and I firmly believe there never was a 
period in the MiMionary history of that country when there was a more hopeful prospect 
than at the present moment. Let us then occupy that land in the manner it is proposed 
we should do. But the main thing to look for is the employment of the native converts. 
I believe that no great impression will be made in that land until the 600 native converu 
now scattered about among our Missions there are multiplied, and that we have native 
convert teachers in every centre of that vast population. There is another step that I trust 
will not be overlooked. I trust that we shall think of the wants of the female population 
of that land. Depend upon it, that unless we gain the hearts of the female part of the 
population, we shall never cover the land with converts. It is with these considerations 
that 1 now second this Resolution ; and I cannot but hope that, if life be spared, we shall 
yet realise many of what may be deemed the poetical views of the mover of the Rttolution ; 
for I believe that the promises in Scripture are quite as large, nay far larger, than even the 
poetic fancies of our esteemed friend. 

The Rev. Gsorgb Hall, B.A., Missionary, Madras : — My Lord and Christian Friends, 
— After the admirable speeches to which we have listened from the gentlemen who have 
moved and seconded this Resolution, my duty in rising to support it is abundantly dear. I 
am here now as a Missionary from India— a soldier lately returned from the enemy's 
country where war is being carried on. I have come from the forefront of the battle- 
field, where the armies of the Lord of Hosts are fighting against the forces of the Prince 
of Darkne^. Every loyal Christian here takes a deep interest in that struggle ; and I believe 
all would ask of me the questions, How goes the conflict yonder ? Are our brethren, 
who in our name fight in India, gaining victories over the powers of evil? Are they 
marching onwards ? Does real success follow their efforts ? In one word, I believe all here 
would ask me what are the results of Missionary labour in India, and this question I shall 
now endeavour to answer. 

My Lord, in estimating the results of Missionary labour in India, we must bear in mind 
what was the state of that country even so recently as the beginning of the present century. 
TAeM, the most appalling atrocities were committed under the sacred name of religion. 7!fteii, 
in every part of the land the fires of suttee were lighted, and many a widow was burned to 
death beside the dead body of her husband, her own eldest son setting fire to the pile. 
Then, the murder of female children was common; and so late as 1836, a Rajuput 
chief estimated that 20,000 were annually destroyed in the provinces of Rajupootana and 
Malwa alone. Then, human sacrifices, and self-immolation were frequent before the shrines 
of the sanguinary idols of India. But now, how different is Indians state ! The first Mis*

tionaries lifted the veil which shrouded Hindomsm, and expoied these and many other 
enormities. The Christian principle of Britain was hronght to bear on India's rulers, and 
these crimes were removed from the picture of Hindoo idolatry. These deeds of darkness 
have been banished, we trust, for ever, and only to be heard of in future as dark spots 
in Indians history, which coming generations of her people will be amazed to read in the 
annals of their country, just as we look back now at the tales of ancient Druidism and its 
horrors in this land of ours. 

Bat, my Lord, let us look rather at our own times, and consider what have been the 
fruits of Mbsionary labour in India. We can point now to the whole of God's Word, pub- 
lished in fourteen of India's languages, and to the New Testament, or paru of it, in twelve 
others — ^making the sacred Scriptures, in whole, or in part, in no fewer than twenty-six 
of the living languages of India. And we have it from the best authority, that during the last 
ten years upwards of one million and a half copies have been distributed among the people. 
Along with this, we can also point to Christian books and tracts in all these languages, and 
can tell yon that eight and a half millions of these have in ten years been circulated among 
the Hindoos. The press, with all its mighty power, has been brought to bear fully on 
the stronghold of Hindooism, and this has residted from the labours of Missiooaries. 

And, my Lord, Missionaries are doing a great educational work in India. In the schools 
supported by all the Missionary Societies, there are 96,000 young people receiving a Christian 
education — daily reading the Word of God. Wherever, in rural districts, we are able to 
open vernacular schools, they are filled with scholars. In India's large cities, we find the 
adults of the middle and higher classes almost inaccessible to the Christian Missionary, but 
these classes are intensely anxious to have their sons well educated, especially in the 
English language. AU Missionary Societies, observing this, have in these large cities es- 
tablished Institutions where an excellent education is imparted — and this at an age when 
the minds of the youthful Hindoos are fresh, inquiring, and susceptible of impressions ; there 
are maltitudes of young men, the fathers and leaders of the next generation, who are daily 
reading the Bible. Common vernacular schools perform a great preparatory work. But 
these Institutions, from the advanced age of many of the pupils, and other circumstances, 
have proved to be a converting agency, and have been much owned and blessed of God. 
In such a sphere I have been called to labour much in the great city of Madras, where 
several years ago our Society commenced an Institution. Ere long 400 Hindoo and Maho- 
medan youths were gathered around us, and if we had accommodation we might have had 
many more. As an illustration of the result of this form of Missionary labour, I could point 
to several young men who came as heathen pupils to our Institution, but from reading 
God's Word were led to renounce Hindooism and break their caste. By professing them- 
selves Christians, they had to leave father and mother, and sever the ties dearest to the 
human heart ; and some of them had also to sacrifice the prospect of great earthly posses- 
^ns, in order that they might obtain salvation through Christ. But further, my Lord. We 
may now educate many of the high-caste females of India. I need not enlarge here on the 
degradation of woman in that land, where, on account of her supposed inferiority and de- 
pravity it was held to be wrong and disgraceful to teach a woman to read. Often in years 
gone by did Missionaries lament the fact that there was no possible means of bringing the 
Gospel to bear on the females of the higher castes, who were ignorant and superstitions in 
the extreme, and devoted to idoUtry. I have seen a Hindoo mother, by her tears and en- 
treaties, take her son away with her after he had professed himself a Christian, and exert 
such an influence over him as has for years kept him with her, and outwardly worshipping 
Vishnu. A few years ago the education of high-caste females was unknown ; but of late 
a striking desire for female education has sprung up among the most enlightened of the 
people, arising, I believe, from the influence of the liberal education we have been impart- 
ing to young men. Two years ago we commenced a school in Madras with four or five 
high cute Hindoo girls, and at the close of last year had seventy under Christian instruc- 
tion. Some of these now read the Gospels in their own language — a fact deeply interesting 
to a Missionary ; for could we search back for 2000 years, not one of the mothers of these 
girls could have been proved able to read, far less could they have been seen reading God's 
Word. Some other societies had begun this work even before we commenced it in Madras. 
In several parts of India similar schools may be found, and this we regard as a most hopeful 
result of Missions. 

And, my Lord, another result of Missionary labour in India has been the accomplishment 
of a great preparatory work for the ultimate rapid spread of Christianity there. With a 
system which has stood firm for 3000 years, and has millions of hereditary priests to 
watch over it, and with their social barrier-like caste, which rises up to keep the Hindoos 
in their present state, making the first step into the Christian '^^|l*|f*^(f^^(^^(5^l^ poUa- 


tion and fearful sacrifice : can we wonder that the progress of Christianity should be alow ? 
But I believe the work is begun, and is now going on, which will certainly undermine 
and overthrow the huge fabric of Hindoo idolatry. Many a portion of God's Word, or a 
tract, is being thoughtfully read and pondered over in secret ; and in rural districts, man j a 
statement made by the Missionary as he preaches in the busy bazaar, or beneath the ancient 
tamarind or banyan trees of Hindoo villages, sinks deep into the hearts, and I believe is like 
good seed, only waiting a favourable opportunity to spring up and bnng forth fruit. In 
large cities, too. there are multitudes of young men who know enough of science to know- 
that their own Pnranas are ftilse, and they have read another Vetham — the true Word of 
God, the holiness of which contrasts strangely and strongly with the books they have been 
taught to consider divine. Illustrations of this kind of preparatory work are constantly 
coming to the notice of Missionaries. I may mention one. Some time ago a Mis- 
sionary was preaching not Hr from Madras » and some Brahmins began to oppose the state- 
ments he made. A }'oang man, with the mark of Vishnu on his forehead, then pressed 
forward to the side of the Mifsionary and assisted him very effectively to answer the 
Brahmins and uphold Christianity. After the discussion the Missionary asked the yonnf^ 
man who he was, and was toM that he was then a student in the Government Medical 
College ; but that he had been for some years a pupil in our Institution, and the convictions 
he had expressed, and the arguments used, had been learned there, and he added that he 
hoped one day openly to profess himself a Christian. Every Missionary connected 
wHh these Institutions could point to scores — some of them to hundreds, of old pupils, 
now settled in life, and occupying important positions, who are intellectually convinced 
that Christianity is true, and would hail with joy a general movement in its favour. 
The Hindoos are generally a timid race, singularly unfit to stand alone and brave 
the brunt of the odium and reprobation which follow breaking caste. Their 
national genius leads them to act in masses ; and, knowing as I do that every year is in- 
creasing the number of those who are convinced that idolatry and caste are wicked and vain, 
and that Christianity is from God, I believe we have great things to expect from mn(di 
Missionary labour in India, which up to the present time has not resulted in an open 
profession of the Christian faith. 

But, my Lord, in stating the resnlte of Missions in India, we can take still higher ground. 
We can point to actual fruit already gathered. Confining myself to Southern India, the 
Presidency of Madras, with which I stand more immediately connected, I may state that 
there 1 10,060 pr9fessitrg native Christians are connected with all Protestant Missionary 
Societies, and of these 20,218 are commnnicants or members of the Church of Christ. 
Here, then, we can point British Christians to a great fact — iht fact of 20,000 natives in 
one of the Indian Presidencies, now sitting down at the table of the Lord and comme- 
morating His death and dying love ; and surely this speaks of progress. Here I may mention 
that there are 25,849 native Christians connected with the stations of our own Society in 
Southern India, and, of these, 1 808 are commqnicants. It is true that the great majority 
of converts in that part of India were originally of yery low rank in the social scale among 
their countrymen. They had, in fact, no proper caste at all, and in general had little to 
suffer in becoming Christians. Missionaries at first found this class most accessible, and 
wisely devoted much of then* attention to them. They have precious immortal souls to be 
saved, though the Hindoos despise them, and we rejoice to see the Shanars and Pariahs of 
India brought into the Redef^mer's fold. But now we are reaching and making our labours 
felt even among the highest classes. No longer can the high-caste heathen look upon our 
efforts with indiflerence and scorn, as they used to do not many years ago, and say we 
eonld not afiect or reach them. Now, especially in connection with onr edbcational work, 
we have gene into the very centre of high-caste heathenism. We have taken some of the 
sons of the leading families in the Hindoo community, who have left all for Christ. There 
Is not a caste in India, from the highest to the lowest, which is not represented in the 
Church of Christ there. Of late years, the progress of our native Churches has been most 
encouraging. When we thus see flourishing vigorous native Churches springing up, with 
an annually increasing ratio of additions to their membership, yre may well point to tins 
Isct as a most hopeful and cheering result of Missions in India. 

And, my Lord, in stating something of the results of Indian Missions, allow me to advert 
to one more topic. This is the bringing forward a Native Ministry of the Gospel. I 
rejoiced to hear such prominence given to this in the noble sermon to which we listened 
with such delight in Surrey Chapel yesterday. I also rejoice to have heard such importance 
given to this subject in the Report to which we have listened here this morning. I need 
not remind such an assemblage as this, that an efiScient Native Ministry is, under God, 
India's greatest want. Bnropean Missionaries cannot be expected to evangelize that land. 

FOE JU2sE, 1864. If 1 

The conntrj is so rast in extent, the popxMioB k se great, the maDners and customs, as 
well as the habits oi thoaght of the people are so diffierent from oars, and withal the climate 
is so hostile to European life, that we mast look to the natiTes to carry on this work to 
its glorious issue. All the lessons of history, also, lead us to expect great relifpoos and 
social refonoetioos or changes, to be wrought out by the people of the land where they afe 
accoai|riished. Foveigpnecs may lay- the foundation, but natbe energy and power alone can 
rear the fabric which shall be a national monument — an index of the nation's progress and 
ekratiOB. It most be so with India. We must bane natives, sons of the soil, to be for 
India what Luther was for Gefmaay, Wyeliffie, Latimer, and other Reformers, to England^ 
and John Knox to Scotlasd, ere we can expect to see great things in the triumphs of the 
GospdL OTor the deep- rooted idolatry of the Hindoos. 

In the Madras Presidency there are 903 Native Catechisis aaployed bf all tiie Missionarj 
Societies. We thaak God for these men. They are doing a most important work' in 
evplaiiiing the Word of God both to Natiye Christians and the heathen, especially of the 
dass te which they originally belonged. Bat we need men capable of acting mere iade- 
pendeaatly. We need men who will be inflnential among all classes of the oomnmoity — 
both aoMBg those who are stiU fettered by the absosd prejadioes of caste, and aaiong tlsose 
who have reoeived a liberal ednoatioa. We need efficient natvre pastors, as weU as powerfiil 
native preachers among the heathen. In South India there are now sixty ovdained native 
minisfeeca* of whom, however, only ^ree belong to our Society. Bot I hope we shall ere 
long have many more. In diffsrent parts of our own Sowth Indian Mission field we have 
made acnngemeafts which wiUU we hope, hanre this result — and tome also of the converts 
of onr Madras Institntion will, I trust, be fbnnd worthy of ^is office. With this object io 
view, we have for the last eight years had a theological class, where converts and other 
Christian yonng men have been under traioiag for the Losd's work. They have received 
a good edncation, both in Rnglish and the vernacular, and for years have been aocnstomed, 
more or less, to preach in thc^ own langaage. Before I left Madras, thirteen young men 
from this class bad been appointed to spheres of labovir — some of them hundreds of miles 
np oevBtry. After a year or two of probatioA as preachers, I hope to see some, if not ^l of 
^ese young men, esdained as native ministers. 

As an Ulnsteitkm of the iasportance and valoe of an efficient native agency, I nay be 
allowed to refer to a recent incident which has greatly interested me. Jost before I left 
India last year* one of our students— a yooth whom I baptized in I9b7 — was appointed to 
labour ia a heathen village thirty miles from Madias ; and the first letter I opened on reaohing 
London told me tliat he bad already been the means of the coaversioifr of the Brahmin priest 
of timt village. This priest was a young man whose duty it was to perform the daily sacrMoe 
in the temple of Siva. He frequently visited onr Bfiasioa agent, and listened to the Gospel 
as he preached to the people of the viUages, and thai came for private conversation. These 
conversations gradually led to a conviction of his own sinfulness, and the folly 'of the 
worship he was daily performing. He resolved, in his own way, to test the power of the 
idol which from infeney he had worshipped; and, on one occasion, kicked it and sat astride 
on it, to see if it would take offence. There vras, ol coarse, no exhibition of Siva^s wrath 
at snch an inscdt from his own priest. After soma time this youth left his native village 
and lua parents, and went to Madras, in order to obtain such protection as would enable 
him to declare himself a Christian. There he tore bis sacred Brahminical thread in piecesn 
and broke his caste. When his parents and relatives came entreating him to go back, he 
zemained firm in his faith in Christ. He has been baptized, and, accordug to aecoonts I 
received last vfeek, is an earnest student of the Word of God. In this way, throngh the 
agency of the natives, I believe the Gospel is destined to spread in India. The European 
Missionary there is but a pioneer— ihe bleaker up of the folk>w ground. He sows a little, 
and reapa a little. Some of the fruits of bis labours (with God's Messing) he moulds 
into fresh labourers, and sends them to scatter the seed of the Word broadcast far and wide. 
It is their sowing which will take vigorous root and become naturalized in the new soil. 
It is tkmr sowing which will spring up and bring^ forth an abundant harvest ; and it is the 
native labonrers who will return with joy, bringing their sheaves widi them, and tkey wtfl 
eelebrate with gladsome shout the hain^est-home of India bvoaght to the feet of Jesus. Oh 
diat we had hundreds, yea thottsands of such men 1 

Snch, my Lord, are soooe of the results of Missionary labour in India. When wo 
remember the greatness of the difficulties to be overcome, as well as the feebleness of the 
eflbrts whidi have been made for this great object, I hssitate not for a moment to say 
that the retulis have ieen ae great ae emiM reammaUy he expeettd. But still, we have to 
osnfess with sadness that the work is only beiag oommeneed. Though there are 541 
Baropean and American Missionariee in India, what are these among 200,000,000 of 


heathen ? Viewed geoaraphically, it is one Missionary to eTerj 3000 square miles. This 
is at the rate of one Missionary for every 400,000 heathens, heing about the same as if 
there were only six ministers of the Grospel for this great city of London. Great provinces 
—kingdoms in fact — might be ]>ointed oat where no Missionary dwells, and scores of large 
towns where the sound of salvation haa never been heard. Christians, we appeal to you 
for India. We need men. We have been eloquently told by the first speaker this morning 
of the '* charms" of the life of a minister in England; but are there no "charma" 
connected with Missionary labour in India? Are there no ** charms" in proclaiming among 
idolaters the way of salvation through Christ? Are there no ** charms" in baptiang into 
the Church of Christ those who have been brought up as heathen ? Are there no '*charma" 
in sitting with such at the table of the Lord ? Are there no '* charms " in hearing Hindoos 
whom we have taught when heathens proclaiming among their countrymen the unsearchable 
riches of Christ ? To a true> hearted Christian India has *' charmt " as a field of laboor. 
If there are young men here who are solemnly considering where and how they may aorve 
their Saviour on earth, I would say to such, come to India and preach the Gospel. In this 
work there is scope for any amount of energy, and a noble field for the exercise of the 
highest talents. We need prayer, much prayer, that God's Spirit may be abundantly 
poured forth on India, to awaken its slumbering dead millions to true spiritual life. And 
we need, also, that large Christian liberality to which a previous speaker has referred — 
such liberality as a laiyd so highly favoured as this may well pour into the Redeemer'a 
treasury to help to spread His glory among the millions of our fellow-subjects in India. 

Christians, let the retuUs of the past encourage us to greater zeal and devotedness to the 
gveat work of bringing India to Christ. This undertaking is no foriom hope. God's word 
makes the successhil issue certain. Even now, standing upon our mount of vision, and 
looking down the course of time, lighted as it is by the sure word of prophecy, we may 
see brighter and better days for India. Her idols shall be cast down and despised, yea, 
they shall be utterly abolished. Her idol temples shall be dismantled, and their cmmbUng 
ruins be looked upon by her own sons as the relics of a dark and dismal age. The iron 
chain of caste shall be broken and destroyed, and India's people shall dwell as brethren on 
earth, looking up to the true God as their Father in heaven. The vices which have so 
long stained the Hindoo character shall be obliterated, and under the purifying and elevat- 
ing influences of the Gospel, India, Christian India, shall yet take no mean place among 
the nations of the earth ; and then, from the spot where the waters of the ocean dash op 
against Cape Comoiin in the south — on, and still on, to the snow-dad summits of the 
Himalayas in the north, and from the green hills of Burmah on the east, to the river Indus 
on the west — over the length and breadth of India shall rise one long and loud song of 
gladsome praise to Him who died on Calvary. 

The Resolution was then put from the chidr, and carried. 

The Rev. J. MAKSPBAca, of Bradford, formerly a Missionary of the Baptist Missionary 
Society, said : — My Lord, I rise as a comparative stranger, and as the representative of a 
sister institution, to move the following resolution : — 

** That the Meeting, while mteftilly recognising the enconra^ingprogress'of thcMIsiionGhnrehefi 
generally, and especially in the mighty Empires of India and China, cannot bat deplore the tragical 
events involved in the political changes which havejoccnrred in Madagascar; it, nevertheless, r«t}oioes 
in the Just and heneflcent principles avowed by the present Sovereign and her Government, by 
which religious ft-eedom is secured for all classes of the people ; and the Meeting records its deep and 

Sateftil sense of the Divine favour in the preservation of our Missionaries in tune of dang^, and in 
e encouraging state and proapects of the Native Churches. But the Meeting cannot suppress the 
expression of grief and indignation at the gross outrages and cruel wrongs committed by Peruvian 
slave ships upon the defenceless Islanders of the South Seas, many of whom have been brought to 
the knowledge and enjoyment of the Gospel by the labours of this Societv ; and the Meeting most 
earnestly appeals to Her Majettv's Government to adopt every practicable means for bringing this 
monstrous evil to an early termination, and for procuring, not only the deliverance of the captives, 
but also their restoration to their homes." 

It is perfectly impossible for me at this late hour to do anything more than just refer 
very briefly to the first topic presented for consideration. And here, whilst labouring under 
the general disadvantage of following so earnest and eloquent a speaker as Mr. Jones, I 
labour under the particular disadvantage of being brought into such close juxtaposition with 
my friend Mr. Hall from the Presidency of Madras ; for, as has been already annonnced 
by Mr. Prout, it happens that I have laboured myself on the Continent of India, so that it 
is India over again. • But I promise you that I will be exceedingly brief. The remarks 
which I have to make will be chiefly of a corroborative character ; it will be my main object 
to confirm the testimony borne by Mr. Hall wiUi respect to the present state of things in 
India. With regard to the successes which have accrued I should like you just to look for 

FOR JUNE, 1864. 193 

a BMHiient at the subject of trantUtions. India it not simply a country of hmilj or tribes, 
It is a eontinent of nations. As is well said, public works there have to do not with 
eountries but with provinces ; roads have to connect not cities but kingdoms ; education has 
|30 be gtven not to parishes but to nations. Taking all this into account, you will be able to 
appreciate the fact that there is now scarcely a language or dialect of India which has not 
been acquired, and into which the Scriptures, in whole or in part, have not been translated. 
And then glance at the schools. Marvellous are the results which have been realised in 
connection with the efforts of this and kindred sodetiet in the case of Missionary schools, 
in which there.i8 given a good education permeated throughout by the principles of Chris- 
tianity. One result is, that there have gone forth from our Bdission seminaries thousands of 
young men having, as my friend Mr. H^l stated, a most accurate knowledge of Bible doc- 
trines and facts. It requires but the vivifying influence of the Holy Spirit to turn the 
knowledge in the mind into grace in the heart, and thus you would have a multitude born 
in a day. I am sure you would be delighted by a visit to some of our schools ; and improve- 
mento as regards travelling are now advancing so rapidly that perhaps the time may come 
when sonoe of yon vrill be able to take a return railway ticket to India. In that case I 
should advise you to test the acquirements which have been made at some of our native 
Mission schools. It is marvellous how the pupils think for themselves, instead of learning 
everything, parrot-like, by rote. For instance, a chaplain vras passing from Agra to Cal- 
entta. On his way he called at a Mission station. The Missionary there was very anxious 
that he should pay a visit to his school. " O, with great pleasure,'' said the chaplain, and 
away they went together. The chaplain was thus introduced, not to a school in one of the 
great cities of the Indian Empire, but to a purely country school. "Now,'' said the 
Missionary to the chaplain, *' these little fellows have read their Bible, and I should like 
you to catechise them, just to test their acquaintance with Bible history and facts." Well, 
the chaplain thought he would put a very simple question, and asked, '* Who was the wisest 
man that ever lived ?'' I have put that question, my Lord, in this country, and the reply 
has generally been '* Solomon." The chaplain, no doubt, thought the reply would be 
** Solomon ;" but a little fellow in the class very carefully and thoughtfully answered — 
** Jesus Christ, sir." The chaplain was immediately on the horns of a dilemma, and knew 
not what to do, and to save himself rolled the burden of the proof on the little boy 
who had given the answer. ** How do you prove that ?" be said. *' O," said the little 
boy, *' I can prove it, sir." ** How F" *' Well, it is written, * God gave not the spirit by 
measure unto Him.' " " Capital !" said the chaplain, astonished at the reply. In order 
to test the quick-wittedness and independent thought of the pupils still further, he said — 
** Can any of you give me another proof?*' " Tea, sir," said another little fellow in the 
school, " I can. It is written, ' No man ever spake like this man ! ' " And so, if you 
were to go to any of the large cities, such as Calcutta, and visited some of the great 
Missionary institutions where a sound education is given through the medium of the 
English language, the Missionaries would be very glad to introduce you to classes of fine 
native youths, whom you would find to speak English as well as you speak it yourselves. 
Not long ago an American Missionary arrived at Calcutta, and he was naturally anxious to 
see the lions of the place, and to learn what the Missionaries were doing there, in order 
that he might profit by what he saw in his intended operations in the north-west. He 
went to see one of the schools under the management of the Missionaries, and was 
introduced to a class of native youths. ** Now," said the Missionary to the new arrival, 
'* these young men have read almost everything ; they think for themselves, and I should 
like you to test their general knowledge." '* Well," said the Missionary fresh from the 
United States, '* can any of you young men tell me how many forms of government 
there are in the world ?" *' Yes," said one of the young men very quietly, ** I can, 
sir ; there are several." '' Will you please to name them." '' Well, sir, there is the 
limited monarchy." "Yes." "And there is the absolute despotism." "Yes." "And 
there is the republican form." " Yes, yes, there is. And pray under which form would 
you like to live ?" " Under the limited monarchy, sir." " But how so, how so ? You 
know there is a republican form of government in America, and under that repub- 
lican form you can go where you like, and say what you like, and think what you 
like, and write what you like. Why not live under such a free government as that ?" 
" Thank you, sir, I should prefer after all the limited monarchy." '* Well, but now, how so, 
how so ? When you have all these privUeges, social, political, and religious, why not prefer 
such a free government as that ?" "Well, sir, I prefer the limited monarchy, and I will tell 
you why ; I know that with all the boasted freedom under that republican form, there are 
three millions of slaves who could not exist under such a limited monarchy as that of Great 
Britain.^' Now that is just a simple illustration of the way in which our Missionary students

that point. Tbvoug^h tbe preachMg of the <Saspel, as you have heard, ooorerts hmm beea 
gatiiered to the Lenl. It is a nitrveHoat 4mt that at oar sereral Mission Ctuirolies, aaattcred

every tang ue and peopte, and Undred and tribe, «e that now there is acaroeiy a form of 
orror eiver whieh tbe doelnnes of Chrialianity hate net trfamphedf nor any apecies of

bom of beaiven, easting from hia peraon the symhol of Us ereed, has assumed the badge of 
discipleBhip into a nobler and pnaer fabih. Now thcfie is juit one point whioh I wi^ to

atatisties and conpaie tbe resnlts realised with the amonnt of effort put faxA, yon are 
utterly and abaolntely d iacon ea ged by tiM paneity of the resnlts. Let ase say, then, with 
regard to India, as a chM to nmeh of mystery in the past, and as a guiding star of 
hope for the futoro^-^at jon must not eatimate our euoeesaes in the Bast by the recorded 
nomlber of individual conversions, and for this reason, that there are muHitndes scattered 
up and down the length and breadtlh of t^ land who are the secret disciptes of the 
Lord Jeans, but who have not the moral courage to eome out asid declare themaalvea 
to be on the Lord's aide. Ton have only to eonsider the grievances, the disahUiliea 
to which onr native oonvet^ are s wh yuo t, to understand <his. 80 soon as a mm 
becomes a Christian he beoomes an outcast Bis wife no longer regards him as her huriiand, 
nor Ms children as their parent He is, aoa on di ug to Hindoo law, to all intenta and pur-

lost a thovsand nipeea, onether who lost ten tbowaand, another who knt one handrad

was«nH^loy«d in disseminating the troths ef the religion of Chnet among Ms iettow*

to read an extract, made by a Mend Mbonripg at SeaaBspove, and rsfaelfaig to tha

and who is no enthusiast, says that sooiee of similarcases are known to tbe teaehers^-cases 
in wMch the only reason avowed by -pupils lor not proilessing faith in Oiriat is the oft- 
repeated one of want of courage to oppose the wishes of their frienda, or a desiie amt to

discouraged at tke postponenaeni to an indefiaite pariod of the promiiad miUenium. We 
cannot, therefore, be too much impressed with the faot that what ha« already been realizad 
is simply preparatory ; we cannot ha too miich inpresaed with the foct that the abaeoce of 
moral courage is one great prerentive to any ge&eral movement in favour of Ghriatianity. 
As Mr. Hall says, the character of the people is such, that they are moved not singly but 
in maaaea, not iodividnally but collectively ; meanwhile they are passing through grand 
tranaforxnative processes of thought and feeling, all ripening for a grand coasiunmation, 
the like of which the Christian Church hath never seen. Is it not one of the moat 
gloriooa predictions of unfnlfilled prophecy, that *' a nation shall be bom in a day ?" and 
may we not expect some sudden and instantaneons upsprioging of India's kindreds and 
tribes, at some divinely-communicated impulse for the avowal of the truth ? People alter 
people ahall be made willing in that day of Grod's power ; and when all the elementa of 
thia atupendoua change shall be folly elaborated and made ready, then, as at the first, the 
Almighty shall issue the decree, *' Let there be light," and myriads shall emerge almost 
with a twilight from darkneu into day. India shall supply its own illustration of what we 
may expect to transpire at the appointed time of her full and final evangelization. Look at 
the rapid development of vegetable life at one season of the year. During certain months, 
owing to the tropical heat of the snn, and the withering breath of the simoom* the earth is 
soorohed into utter barrenness, so that soaisely a green blade appeara on its chafed and 
indurated soil ; but no sooner do the periodic rains descend, in their tropical effusion, than» 
behold ! on every hand a sudden outburst of fertility, and the spectacle of naked leafless 
desolation quickly exchanged for that of teeming valleys and smiling plains. So, when the 
windows of heaven shall be opened, and the showers of blessing shall descend in copioua 
streama of grace, these dreary moral wastes shall forthwith he mantled with verdure, and the 
apparently dormant or dead seeds of truth be transmuted as, by miracle, into the buds and 
blossoms of faith, and the waving harvests of righteousness and peace. Yea, such shall be 
the rapidity of growth, that all the ordinary processes of husbandry shall be set aside, and, 
in accordance with the declaration of the inspired Word, " The reaper shall overtake the 
ploughman, and he that gatbereth the grapes him that soweth the seed." What have we 
to do in the de^wlopment and evolution of this mighty drama in the history of the world's 
redemption ? It is indicated to us in the parting command of our ascending Lord, *'.6o ye 
into aU the world and preach the Gospel to every creature;" and inumuch as your res- 
ponsibility is proportionate to your means of giving or of going, then, as my final appeal* 
" Whatsoever your hands find to do^ do it with your might." And desist not from the 
glorious emprise till the knowledge of the Lord shall cover every continent of earth and 
every islet of ocean, as the waters cover the sea ; till from the equator to the poles, and 
every part of this world's vast circumference, prayer shall be made to Him continuaUy, 
and daily shall He be praised ; till the morning ** orisons of the Eaat shall blend with the- 
evening anthems of the West, and the matin song of the West with the glowing vespers of 
the East," and o'er the circling globe, in one continuous and commingling aweil, 

** One song employ aU nations, and all evy, 
< Worthy the Lamb, for he was slain for us ;* . .^

Till nation after nation, taoght the •traJn,

The Rbv. W. Knibb Lbb, Missionary from Amoy, in seconding the Resolution, said. 
There was a time, and that not many years ago, when a Missionary returning from China 
could only speak of discouragementa and difficulties. The dark picture which be gave of 
four hundred millions of fellow-creatures in the valley of the shadow of death was brightened 
only by the light of his own feith in the promises of God. But to-day I stand here to tell of 
success even in China. Fifty years ago Dr. Morrison was working there alone — not doing 
the work of an evangelist, but seeking to clear away obstructions, and to lay, broad and 
deep, the foundations of that spiritual structure which is now rising to gladden our eyes 
in that distant land. Other noble and heroic Missionaries were labouring in the islanda 
of the Eastern Archipelago, at Singapore, and Malacca, preparing the fallow ground, and 
easting therein the precious seed. God gave them the tears of the sower, but not the joy of 
the reaper. Well, my Lord, there comes a time when the sower and the reaper may rejoice 
together, when the shout of harvest home goes up from the field of labour on earth and is 
echoed by the sainted ones who rest around the throne of God. Those Mission fields, 
deserted by this Society, are now bearing fruit. About fife years ago a native Chinese 
Misnonary was sent down firom one of the Presbyterian Mission Churches in the neighbour- 


hood of Amoj to work at Singapore. The other day, I had the pleasure of meeting with a 
Christian Brother from that place, a Chinese who has nerer seen the land of his fathers, 
and who was edacated in the school of my honoured colleague, the Rev. Alexander 
Stronaeh, then of Singapore, now of Amoy ; and that Christian Brother tells me that at 
Singapore there are nearly one hundred couTerts in present fellowship with the Church- 
Furthermore, from that Church there has gone forth a Chinese Missionary (and I delight 
to hear and to tell of these natiTC Missionaries), to Batavia, the scene many years of Med- 
hurst's early labours. 

About twenty years ago our Missions in China began. Some of our friends who are scepticml 
as to the success of Christianity there, must distinguish between Missions to the Chinese 
and Missions to China, and should remember that the latter is but just out of its teens, and 
is, in fact, the most juvenile of all modern Missions. Then, when after the first war with 
England, our Missionaries gained a standing-place in China itself, the heathenism of that 
great country was not to be conquered at a blow ; local dialects had to be acquired, and the 
Scriptures to be re-translated. There was more or less of enmity on the part of the people, 
and the authorities were bitterly hostile to us. When I first went out to Amoy, great 
difilculties were encountered whenever we sought to extend our labours to a distance from 
the open port. Barriers rose up on every side. We could go to a city and preach, but we 
generally found a number of dirty Chinese soldiers at our heels, who were professedly sent 
to guard us, but really were so many spies. Did we seek to rent a house in the interior for 
purposes of Divine worship, the landlord who receive4 us as tenants was liable to be cast 
into prison, and, in one instance at least, had to endure the filth and starvation of a Chinese 
gaol for years. 

We can now tell of a change for the better, so far as our facilities for extended Missionary 
operations are concerned, and once more we owe it to the might of this country, not always 
very righteously put forth. The fact is, that in our dealings with the Chinese we hare 
from the first depended very much upon the argument of force, and very little upon the 
force of argument. We have shown them that we have better soldiers than they haTe, 
that our Armstrong artillery is an improvement on their old guns, cast hundreds of years ago, 
and that our Enfield rifles are superior to their arrows and matchlocks; but they love us 
none the better for that ; they receive us with no more favour because we have conquered 
them. If by our country's might we have been enabled to climb the otherwise inaccessible 
mountain side, on which the strong fortress of Chinese heathenism is built, let us remember 
that our work as Christians, and as Christian Missionaries, begins where that of the warrior 
and the politician ends. And not only so, but we have to undo much of their work before 
we can begin our own. He who comes not in by the door, but climbs over a part of the 
wall which has been broken down by the thief who went before him, is very likely to be 
taken for a thief himself, and will have some difficulty in proving that he comes with honest 
and pure intentions. Now that is just our difficulty with regard to the Chinese. We admit no 
opinm^moker to Church-fellowship, and yet it is difficult to convince the mass of the people 
that Christian Missionaries have no interest in the opium trade. We have protested against the 
Coolie traffic ; and I am reminded by the Resolution in my hand of years gone by in the history 
of China, when atrocities equal to any you have recently heard of in the South Seas were perpe- 
trated among the natives of the East. These, happily, are things of the past ; British merchants 
long ago washed their hands of the traffic, when they saw to what iniquities it was leading 
them. But labour was wanted for Havannah and elsewhere, and the trade was continued in 
the South of China by unscrupulous agents of the Spanish Government. There was a time, 
not more than three years ago, when members of my own household durst not wander 
from the house after nightfall ; when the traveller from village to village, after sundown, 
was often kidnapped and carried ofiT to some foreign vessel lying at anchor miles from the 
shore. The Chinese authorities at length adopted the most stringent measures to put an 
end to the business ; and this was the crowning tragedy. A cross was placed in the streets 
of Amoy, and a poor wretch, who had been employed by foreigners, was nailed quiver- 
ing to that cross, and hung out in the burning sun to die. Well, these things have passed 
away, and the trade is now conducted on more systematic principles by agents of the 
British Colonial Government. But the memories of such scenes remain. There are 
still mothers among us there whose sons have been decoyed away from them ; there are 
wives whose husbands shall come back no more ; there is the cry of the orphan for the 
father who has died in the polluted hold of a Coohe ship, or whose bones are bleaching 
in the guano pits of South America. All these things have left open festering wounds, 
which shrink even from the gentle touch of Christian sympathy and love. 

We have, however, a treaty, by which we are allowed to travel throughout the empire. 
Do not expect that we shall do anything of the kind just yet. Do not expect that, while 

FOB JUNE, 1864. 197 

theoombined countries of Protestant Christendom send us no more than 100 Missionaries to 
400,000,000 of Chinese, we can preach the Gospel to them all, or even itinerate OTer 
5,000.000 of square miles. There are vast districts of the country disturbed by war, which 
at the present time we cannot visit. I suspect that the Taepings, who were disposed to be 
friendly at first, do not love us very much now. It would not be very good policy to go 
into their midst. We have " meddled " in that matter, and I am afraid we have *' muddled" 
it. What will be the end of our present political intervention in China no mortal man can 
uy. I have never yet met with an intelligent Chinaman who had faith in the continuance 
lor many years of the present dynasty. The poor man is sick because we ourselves have 
belaboured him sore, and we are now trying to make him healthy and strong again. I do 
not think we shall succeed. For all this I am no apologist for the Taepings. 1 cannot 
think that the religion they profess is the leaven with which China is to be regenerated. We 
shall find a false form of Christianity is harder to deal with than unmitigated heathenism. 
Bnt there is another way in which you may look at this matter. Years ago there was a 
rebellion at Amoy, and after it a revival in the Church. These political commotions are 
elements of change ; they are working upon the minds of the people. Old beliefs and 
habits of thought that have been rotting at their anchorage for centuries, are now drifting 
sway, the people know not whither. China, asleep for ages, is now awake, looking for 
something, expecting something, she scarce knows what. God is chastising that people, 
I hope for their good. If the tempest of His wrath sweep over the land, it may drive away 
the dark clouds of superstition that hang heavy over the valleys of the slain ; and when 
the storm is over, and the light of His truth is shining upon the dry bones, the soft, gentle 
brea& of His Spirit may pass over them, and they shall rise and stand upon their feet 
sn exceeding great army. 

Bot to speak more directly of Missionary work. lAt Peking itself there is the beginning 
of a Christian Church. The Report has told us of ten Missionaries labouring there. Why, 
to my certain knowledge, there are thirteen, for I find that three of those Missionaries have 
their wives with them. Let me tell you that the wife of a Missionary can do as great a 
work in China as the Missionary himself. She can gather around her the poor degraded 
females of that land, and can speak to them of God's truth. I should like to take yon to a 
scene in one of our Mission homes at Amoy, where the noble wife of a Missionary — she 
^nld not like me to repeat her name on this occasion — is doing a great work, gathering 
aronnd her a number of Chinese females, reading the Word of God to them, and calling 
upon them to kneel down with her in prayer. My Lord, I have often listened to the prayers 
of those Christian women, and I can testify to their fervency and simple faith. Some 
vould have us believe that the Chinese have no hearts. Well, I know that the devil has 
encased the hearts of that people in all manner of pride and superstition, but the hearts 
ue there for all that, and the grace of God can fill them with tender and generous emotions. 
Tell me that the Chinese cannot feel ! I saw the wife of a Missionary on her death-bed, and 
i^ive Christian women kneeling around that bed ; I heard their prayers, stifled by sobs 
^ |rief, ascend to heaven, that theur friend and teacher might be restored to life. Tell 
BM that the Chinese cannot feel 1 Do you see that funeral procession winding around the 
^ of the hills, until it reaches the burial place of the dead. A Missionary is being carried 
^ his long home, and there follow him, not only his brethren and his countrymen, but 
hundreds of Christian Chinese, clothed in their mourning robes of sackcloth and white, 
Assembled to express their esteem and affection for the teacher whom God has called away 
^his rest. If they love the labourer for his work's sake, they love the Master too. 

I cannot take you to Hankow, a city which the Chinese call the heart of the empire, and 
^bich it perhaps of more importance than Peking itself, where we have only one Missionary. 
1 hope he wiU be reinforced before long ; nor to Shanghae, where there is still a paucity of 
Uboorers, nor to Hong Kong, where Dr. Legge is still alone. I come to Amoy, where with 
boDonred brethren still in the field, I have been labouring for some years. What, in brief, 
^ the result of the efforts of the Missionaries there ? I speak not of our Society alone, for 
j^ben we get into the Mission field we forget our sectarianism ; we forget that we are Pres- 
I^Tterians, Independents, or Baptists, and only remember that we are all soldiers of one army, 
^^^ few in number, marching on to battle, and, as we believe, to victory, under the banner 
w " the Captain of our salvation." 

Now what has been done in Amoy ? There are 830 communicants in fellowship with 
fbe Church in that city and neighbourhood. There are five organized Christian Churches 
^ the city itself, and there are seventeen Mission stations in the country round about, 
^tbin an area of fifty miles radius. These are lights upon the scattered mountain tops, 
that in God's good time shall illuminate all the valleys beneath. And then we have been 
seeking to train up a native agency. Do not think that we are behind India in that 


respect. There is no country in the world where there is better raw material for making 
preachers than in China. There a man no sooner gets hold of the knowledge of the truth 
himself than he goes forth to publish it, and I think I am right in saying that fully half of 
o«r country stations have been planted, not through the preaching of the Gospel by 
Missionaries themselves, but have resulted from the spontaneous efforts of native Chriatians. 
They go forth with burning love to God in their hearts, and with words of thrilling 
eloquence on their tongues, to tell their fellow-countrymen of the Saviour they themselves 
have found. Since I left Amoy, our American brethren there have ordained two native 
pastors, and these men are supported entirely by the contributions of the native Churche* 
over which tliey are placed. They receive liberal salaries. I oould Wish that all my 
ministerial brethren at home were as well off as these Chinese pastors. We ourselves 
have had twelve young men under inetruction in Amoy, and they are now occupying 
positions of great usefulness in the country round about, gathering around them little com- 
panies of believers. Our work there is now beoeming more that of the bishop than the 
pastor. I believe after all that the Missionary is the true bishop. We have now not only 
to preach, but to oversee Churches already planted. In our visits to these country stations 
the native preacher comes to us with difficulties which he has met with in his reading of 
the Scriptures : we have to explain them. We have also to examine candtdatea for Chris- 
tian baptism, and to administer the ordinances of religion. We want thus not only native 
agents, but more agents from our own country. We have to evangelize China by preaching, 
and we must have living men to tell the Chinese the way of salvation. Do not think that 
when you have printed a tract and distributed it, or put into circulation Bibles and Testa- 
ments, that yea have done the work. There is a power in the tones of the human yxnce, 
when it comes from a heart behind it filled with the love of God, that touches the hearts 
of men as nothing else can do. I rejoice that your Missionaries in China are preaching 
Missionaries. I know the great need which exists for something besides preaching in Indfia : 
I know that a great deal has to be done there by means of education. But the Chinese 
are an educated peaple ; in their case we have not ts wait for the work of schools. They 
know sufficient to understand the Word of God, as we go out with an open Bible in o«tr 
hands, and preach to them of Christ. 

I could tell you, did time permit, of the suffierings of our native Christians. It has been 
said, on high authority, that the Chinese are not prepared to make sacrifices for religion. 
All I can say in answer to that is, that they do. There was a noble man in the south of 
China, connected with Dr. Legge's Church, who preached the Gospel to his fellow-country 
men, and God gave him some fifty souls as his hire. That man was called upon by the 
heathen to give up Christ or die. He said, ^ I can die, but I cannot forsake Christ." 
They plunged a knife into his heart, and threw his body into the stream. I have known 
myself of many cases in which these native Christians have shown themselves willing to be 
east into prison, and to soffsr the loss of aU things, rather than give up their religion, and 
have deemed it their highest glory to make sacrifices for Him who gave Himself a sacrifice 
for them. 

I am glad to be aUe to say that our plenipotentiary at Peking is new in possession ef 
laots, of which he was not informed when he wrote some time ago a despatch on this 
subject to Esfl RusselL A Missionary Brother tnm Amoy, the Rev. W. C. Bums, has 
recently gone to Peking, and, at Sir Frederick Bruce's own request has laid before him a 
detailed account of the persecutions of our native Christians. We hope to get from the 
Chinese Government what the Roman Catholics obtuned long ago at the instance of the 
french Ambassador, an imperial edict, securing toleration to Chinese professing the Chris- 
tian faith. I do not believe that Christianity is to be nursed in the lap of the civil 
power: you will have but a weak pony bantling if there be anything of that kind. No ! 
Christianity mast sund alone, ay, and run alone, amid the vrildest blasts of persectttien. I 
do not ask that the strong hand of England should strike down the persecutor ; but I do 
ask that> as a nation, we shouM not be ashamed of our Christianity in the sight of the 
heathen. I da say it is a nMt thing for a great country like this to make its voice heard, 
even to the ends of the earth, pleading for liberty to the captive, and for relief to the 
persecuted. I cannot say more at this late hour ; but let me assure you that the work of 
Christian Missions in China is advancing. Amid many hindrances the prospeet was never 
so bright as now. Let the Church be assured of this. China shall be won for Christ. A 
day shall oome, may Gred hasten it I wbea her myriad sons and daughters shall gather 
round the feet of our Immanuel, and acknowledge Him as Lord of all. 

The Knv. J. B. ( )wen in supporting the resolution said, — At this late hour, ladies and 
gentlemsB, I shall net detain you long. I must confess that I never attended a missionary 
anniversary in any part of Great Britain at which I experienced more enjoyment than I have 

FOR JUNE, 1864. 199 

done to-Ui^ and I feel that it would indeed be to gild refined gold to add anffcbiog to the 
ai^meDts in favour of increesed misiionary efforte which have been addressed to you to-day. 
I will, therefore, merely indicate whit I intended to say, if there were sufficient time. It 
has occurred to my mind, in conn vcit u with the comparatively small amount of pragreas to 
which alluftion hat been m^de ^} t^^recediug ^ijeakers, that perhaps we who apeak on these 
occasions do not sufficient! v lay hb/ore our Christian auditory the human causes which have 
led to these strictly hum&n results. There is, I woald observe, a remankable parallel 
between Ihe progress of Chriatianity generally in India, and the progress of Protestantism in 
Ireland; that is, in both countries t^ operation of the same'Oauscs has led to the same 
results. There is in Ireland, as in India, a twofold authority. There is a double authority 
whtck it alwaya an incosvenieace. A divided authority always leads to m divided aUegianee ; 
a divided allegiance leads to disaffection ; disafftection to a chronic phase of rebellion ; and in 
India, «8 in Ireland, all this has been very dangerons to the public interetft. Again, there 
is the indireet ^eraeention of oeirverts in India, through the Ckyvemment system df edvettien 
and the GovemmeBt patronage of Idolatry. ITl had time to work this out I might lAmw 
you that the same eause wbidh accotrats for the slow progress of Protestantism In Irebmd, 
aver wiliieh all Protestants mourn, accounts, also, for tire comparatively slow progress cf Mis- 
sioBS fa India. But the conclosion to be founded on these facts is, not that we «heti3d be 
jvstified in giving up Ireland to Romanism, m India to Brafaminism, bnt that in both vre 
shouMl eontinne to use those means which, under the blessing of God, will prove the means 
of planting far and wide the standard of the Cross. No Christian man ever looks -open 
any part of the world as a forlorn hope. l%ere is an heroic gallantry comieeted wHh the 
Ckrialian Mth wbioh leads men, notwithstanding all difReidties which present "tiiemsdlves, 
to go forth tnifting in their Leader and believing in tiie finid success of Bis eanse. In 
this eai« we do not look for the aid of die Government. It was said of our •vtotories in the 
Crimaa that they were a<9t{eved by the non-commissioned. So I say let pritate Christians 
determiae to carry on their work without looking for any assistance from those wlio are 
hi authority ; and if they do but carry it on in a proper spirit and in a proper manner, 
Cfaoy may depend upon H that He before whom the walls of Sabastopol, like these of 
Jericho, Ml down, will, in His own good time, give them the Drahminism of Indhi for a 
spoil, and the Romanism of Ireland for a prey. 

The Resolution was then put and carried. 

The collection having been afterwards made— 

The Rev. Enoch Millor, M.A./of Liverpool, proposed, without making any xemarkt, in 
consequence of the lateness of the hour, the following Resolution : — 

**That the Hon. Abtbdb KivKjaan. H.P., be the Treasurer; that the Rev. Dr. Tidmah be the 
Foreiffn Secrstary, and the Rer. Ebbkxsbs Pjkodt be the Home SeoreUry, for the ensuing year; that 
the Directors who are eligible be reappoiBted, and that the gentlemen whose names have been 
transmitted by their respective Anxlliarias, and approved by the aggregate Meeting of Delegates, 
be chosen to fill up the places of those who retire* and that the Directors have power to fill up any 
'B that 3iay occur." 

The RsT. Alixandbr Thomsok, M.A.» of Maaeheiter, after observing tlut when Mr, 
licibwr liad declined to make a speech he should certainly not doso, said : — I must say, how- 
Of er, that I never attended a Missionary Meeting at which my faith in the ultimate snosess of 
the Missionary enterprise, which never was weidc, was more strengthened than it has been on 
this occasion. I folly concur in the declanttion of the admirable Report wbioh was read 
this morning, that we have no reason for complaint or dissatisfaction. We have but to 
listen to the statement of such telling fkcts as have been brought before us to-day by Mis- 
sionaries from foreign lands, to see how little foundation there is for the opinion of those 
who tell us that Christianity is becoming effiete, that the old tree is unsound at the root, 
and that its vital sap is decaying. When we see it looking so broad and umbrageous, and 
bringing forth such noble fruits, we feel that it shall assuredly remain. 

The Retolntion was then pnt and oarried. 

Sni Fa^usaia Cnoaaur , Bart., M.P., said, — Ladies and gentlemen, it was my lot for many 
ftmn lo sit side by side with your noble Chairman in the House of Commons, and no one 
was more delighted than I vras to hear of the bononr which the Queen conferred upon him 
in raising him to the House of Lords ; but I Tenture to say that neither in the House of 
Lords nor in the House of Commons did he ever perform a tnore honourable action than in 
presiding over this important meeting. I have great pleasure in moving — 

'*That the very cordial thanks of this Keethig be presented to the Right Hon. Lobd £BoaT,for his 
kindness In presiding on the present occasion and o<mdaetiog the bustness of the day.** 


HiNRT Wright, Eso., in seconding the Resolution said,— I am sure, mv friends, yoa 
will unanimously express your gratification at having seen the noble Lord in the chair this 
day, for this reason among others, that his Lordship has been engaged, for a long time, io 
a very difficult work, in which we wish him most heartily all possible success. Our sym- 
pathies haye gathered around him for many a day, and now that he has come amongst us 
and expressed his interest in our work, I am sure our sympathy will be greatly increased. 
It has been said, my Iiord, that e?ery man takes away from a meeting much more than he 
brings to it, and you will carry away the hearty and loving benediction of an affectionate 
audience. I have much pleasure in seconding the Resolution. 

Sir Francis Crosslxt then put the Resolution, which was carried by acclamation. 

The Cbairmak : — I beg to offer to my friend Sir Francis Crossley. who proposed the 
motion, to my friend Mr. Wright, who seconded it, and to you, my Christian friends, who so 
kindly received it, my very sincere and humble thanks for the honour which you have con- 
ferred upon me ; and let me assure Mr. Wright that the sympathy he has expressed for the 
movement in which I am engaged will be a comfort and consolation to me in the arduous 
undertaking with which I am now proceeding. Now, two of the speakers, Mr. Owen and 
Mr. Alexander Thomson, have remarked in effect that the statements which they have 
heard this day have exceeded their most sanguine expectations. Now I cannot say that my. 
self, because I have had the great pleasure of occupyhig this place before, and had formed 
very sanguine expectations indeed ; but what I will say is this, that what I have heard to- 
day has fully come up — I cannot pay it a greater compliment than by saying that — to the 
anticipations which I had myself formed. One single word, and 1 have done. The most 
charming feature of the Meeting to me is the illustration it has afforded of the extreme 
kindness and cordiality of Missionaries towards each other. Missionaries of all denomina- 
tions, when they meet abroad, seem to vie ¥rith each other in rendering mutual aid and 
assistance in their work ; and I do not know that I can better conclude than with an ex- 
pression of my own feelings on this subject, by repeating one of the most beautiful oollects 
of the Prayer Book, which is this: ^0 Lord, who hast taught us that all our doings without 
charity are nothing worth; send thy Holy Ghost, and pour into our hearts that most ex- 
cellent gift of charity, the very bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whosoever 
liveth is counted dead before thee.'' 

The Doxology having been sung, the Rxv. J. B. Owbn pronounced the benediction, and 
the meeting separated. 


The adjourned Meeting, convened specially with a view to excite the interest and stimulate 
the zeal of the juvenile friends of the Society, was held at Poultry Chapel, under the presi- 
dency of Henry Wright, Esq., Chairman of the Board of Directors. After singing and 
prayer, extracts from the Report were read by the Home Secretary, the Rev. £. Prout, 
when a series of animated addresses, in support of the important objects of the Meeting, were 
delivered by the following Missionaries : Revs. George Hall, B.A., from Madras, W. K. 
Lea, from Amoy, James Roome, from Berbice, and Samuel J. Hill, from Calcutta.

The intelligence received from Madagascar since the publication of the 
Annual Eeport of the Society, which extends over three months, supplies 
abundant evidence in confirmation of preceding information both from the 
capital and the provinces, and will, we are sure, deepen the gratitude of our 
Christian readers, and stimulate to renewed and enlarged efforts on behalf of 
the Mission. 

We are particularly gratified in being able to state that the political 
and social state of the country has become more consolidated and tranquil ; 
the (Government of the Queen has acquired strength and is administered 
generally with justice and impartiality, while the principles of religious 
freedom are faithfully maintained towards the Native Christians. The 
absurd and extravagant rumours in reference to the death, or rather the life, 
of Badama II., which seem to have been propagated from political motives, 
have almost died away, and the apprehension of any hostile attack on the Island 
by foreigners has subsided. We trust also that the modifications in the 
treaties between Madagascar, both with England and France, which have 
been conceded during the visit of the Malagasy Envoys, will tend to restore 
good will and amity, and be followed by commercial and friendly intercourse 
highly beneficial to all parties interested. But, above all, we rejoice that 
every succeeding post renews the gratifying assurance that the Word of the 
Lord has free course and is glorified. New places of worship are opened, 
congregations are enlarged, and the monthly additions to the number of 
Church-members, many of whom are connected with the influential £unilies 
of the capital, afford conclusive proof of the growing strength and social in- 
fluence of Christianity. 

The Rev. Wai. Ellis, writing under date March 1st, gives the subjoined 
representation of the state and prospects of the Mission : — 

'' Quietly and satisfactorily the Gospel continues to spread among the people, 
and as continually is it our privilege to behold the evidences of the work of

the Divine Spirit on their hearts. No month has passed for a long time in 
which additions have not been made to the number of communicants in our 
Churches, and few weeks pass in which we have not letters from distant places 
conveying Christian salutations and asking for books. 


" Last week some Christians from Vonezongo wrote, making inquiries respect- 
ing a course of Christian duty in a special case, and also asking for Testaments 
and copies of the Psalms. In their letter they stated that the number of believers 
was increasing greatly, both men and women. They were, indeed, many, but 
their books were very few. I supplied their need ; and though they had been 
two or more days on the journey, they rested in the capital only one night, 
and set out on their return the next day. 

" This morning, since writing the foregoing, a Christian messenger, from. 
a post 300 miles to the S.E., has arrived with a letter from the Christian 
governor of ihe place, whom I knew during my former visit to Madagascar, 
giving an account of the increase of the Christians in that neighbourhood, 
and asking for books. We do, indeed, thank Grod and take courage under 
these unequivocal evidences that the Lord is carrying on His own work 
in this land, and I communicate them that, while you sjnnpathize ' with, 
us in our difficulties, you may also share our joys, and rest with us on the 
same sources of trust and hope. The letter referred to is dated on the 19th 
of February, the officeor and his oompanioas having been so long on their 
jonmcy to the capital He will retem after the £ea6t» snd I shiil then write 
And send then bo(^8. 


We are lengthening the cords of our tents also in the Capital, A temporary 
house for public worship is nearly finished on the spot whence the martyrs 
were thrown over the precipice, in which I have no doubt we shall soon 
gather the nucleus of a eongregatiofn that will oocupy the Memorial Church to 
be erected there. Last Sunday, assisted by Mr. Toy, I opened a neat and 
respectable native chapel, capable c^ holding 600 persons or more. It stands 
nearly in the centre of the capital, and but a few yards from the gate of the 
residence of tibe Prime Minister, by whom the erection has been much en- 
couraged. The place was crowded on the day of opening, and I observed 
but very few connected with any of the other congregations in the city. 

" The progress of the Gospel is not only a cause of unspeakable joy at 
present, but every month that it continues it casts forward a brightening 
light on the future, as, thanks be to God, it renders the return of per- 
secution in that friture less and less probaMe. Therefore, though we witness 
nothing ^ctraordinary or new in the oovrse of events connected with our 
sacred work, we have increasingly solid grounds for encopragement and hqpe 
of the highest and best kind — evidence that the Spirit of God is operating on. 
the hearts of the people in connection with the word and ordinances of the 

"Never were laboorerB more needed, never, perhaps, were daims more 
urgent, than those whkh Madi^aacar prevents just now. The diffieuHies are 

voB JxfLt, 1864. 803 

great, aad the iuftoences imfrkiMily and opposed to the Gospel are nuBieiHMis 
and powerful; still the OhnstiaiiB hold their ground, and their numbers 
continue to increase; not so numerously, perhaps, as a month or two ago, 
but still sufficient to show that God is giving testimony to the word of Mis 
grace in the finite which it bears. This prosperity is not confined to the 
operation of Christian agency witiiin the capital, but is probably more 
evident in the villageB around than in the capital itself. The steady 
advance of Christianity among the people, amidst all the difficulties and 
ungenial influences by which it is continually surrounded, makes all diffi- 
culties and trials seem comparatively light. We feel assured these sub- 
stantial grounds of enconragjement will not be forgotten nor overlooked by 
the many sincere fHends of the Madagascar Mission in their devout and 
grateful acknowledgments to God, while the exigencies and perils of the Mis- 
sion inspire and urge fervent supplication to the throne oi grace onits bdialf. 
I am often very much encouraged by observing the difference in the outward 
conduct even of those who do not connect themselves with the Christians. 



" Ton wiU be glad to hear that the Lord continues to enlarge His kingdom 
in Madagascar ; and, amidst uuudi that needs improvement, we have many 
ngns of satisfactory progress aoMmg tiie Christians. Our Unitad Prajer 
Meetings are well attended, and the people are understanding their doty t o 
provide Hx&r own places of worship, and ai<e making truly oommefidaWe 
efforts in furtherance of this iaiportant ol^ect. I have had two lists of 
native contributions, towards the erection g£ {daces of worAim brooi^t 
to me during the past week. In these the members of the Church and 
congregation have tried i^hat they coiuld r«ise among themselves first, and 
then have come to ask assistance fi*om their friends in the capital ; and on 
these occasions they usually pay us a visit — often a preliminary o«e — to secure, 
if possible, the pn>niise of aseistanoe when tiiey set to work. I ha^e iMid mneh 
pleasure in giving a Httle help to those who have really strivisn to hdp thesi- 
selves, and I should be truly thanks i£ any generous friends to the evange- 
lization of Madagascar ediould c(mfide to aiy charge any suzas they might be 
disposed to give towards these and similar efforts. It is certainly one means 
of very ^[tensive good, peculiarly applicable to the circumstances of the pec^e 
at the present time." 

The following brief passage from a letter of Mr. Eestler more than con- 
films the stat^nents of our Brother Mc EUis : — 

« Although we have had diaappointmeDLt and affiiotion, ihe state and pros- 
pects of the Mission are more favourable than ever : almost evexy week neKv 
members are added to the Church, and Christianity is extending on ail 
sides. I hope our good friends at home will not be discouraged, or lack in 
their support of this Mission, for I am more convinced than ever that there is 
no other Mission-Jleld to be compared with Madagascar ; and our united prayer 
here is for the safe and upeedy arrival of our friends from Mauritius, so that 
our hands may be strengthened, aad we may be enaHed to work with all 
<rar might and with renewed seal and eaergy.*' 

H 2 




The succeeding important and gratifying statement on this subject, from 
Dr. Davidson, will be read with great pleasure : — 

** The work of the Mission is, so far as I can see, prospering. A new con- 
gregation was opened jesterday, and it was so crowded that when I went up 
I could not get a seat. Without having any positive data, my impression is, 
that since our arrival the numbers of Christians — I mean hearers — have 
increased at least one-third, and the members in still greater proportion. 
One most pleasing and hopefdl sign is the regard to Sabbath. The market, 
which stands opposite my house on Andohalo, is nearly deserted on Sunday ; 
in fact, in this respect Antananarivo is decidedly in advance of London. The 
fact that so many officers, civilians, and slaves, attend the church, prevents 
.very many duties from being performed on that day, and consequently gives 
a Sabbath to their associates without their consent ; sometimes, no doubt, 
against their wish. A heathen merchant need not bring his cloth to the market, 
for the Christians at least will not buy. The heathen, also, if wishing to buy 
anything, will prefer to wait until Monday, because the Christian dealers not 
^being in the market on Sunday, they cannot have the same variety to choose 
from, nor will they be able so well to secure the advantages of competition, 
in this way I have noticed that the dealers in many articles have become 
gradually fewer ; and last Sunday I observed for the first time that every 
-cloth-stand, without exception, was deserted. This is a most cheering sign in 
every point of view, as it cannot £eu1 to raise the character of the people 
intellectually, morally, and physically." 


It will be observed from the preceding communications from Madagascar, 
that our Missionary Brethren, amidst much to cheer and encourage, speak 
rwith deep feeling of their difficulties and discouragements. The heaviest of 
these have arisen from the visitations of disease and death, by which their 
limited and inadequate numbers have been seriously diminished. On a sub- 
sequent page our readers will learn that it has pleased God to remove 
Mb. St ago, on whom the interests of education specially devolved; and we 
grieve to add that Mbs. Peabse, wife of the Kev. Johk Peabse, who gave 
promise of more than usual devotedness to the spiritual and eternal iliteii^ests 
of the people, has suddenly sunk under the fearful influence of pulmonary 
^sease, and has been ordered to return home as the only means of preserving 
life : indeed, it may be doubted, from the moumfiil statement of her case, 
whether she will be able to survive the voyage. The following affecting 
letter from her husband contains these heavy tidings, which are to all her 
friends as unexpected as they are grievous :— 

" Antananarivo, March SOth, 1864. 
** Dbab and Rbv. Sib,— It is my painful duty to inform you by this mail 
that I have been compelled, on account of the severe illness of my wife, to 

TOR JULY, 1864. 205 

decide to retam to my native land as soon as a more settled state of tlie 
weather will allow us to attempt the journey to the coast, unless, indeed, 
Mrs. P. should be so much worse that this may be impossible. 

" That I am compelled to act thus will, I feel sure, be the cause of no small 
anxiety to you, while to myself it is a trial under which at times I almost sink . 
I left England with my beloved partner in good health, having a strong 
desire to labour in this part of the Lord's vineyard, and both of us pre- 
pared to stay many years before returning to England. The hand of the Lord 
has brought her very low, and all my hopes seem disappointed, and my schemes 

*' With an earnest desire to assist me in every good work, and with intel- 
lectual qualifications that seemed to fit her eminently for her labours, my 
wife promised not only to be a blessing to myself, but one also, and that in 
no small measure, to the Society with which it is my privilege to be connected: 
How strange it seems to us that she should so soon be laid aside, and that her' 
earthly course should be threatened to be brought so prematurely to a close ! . 

" That the climate has had not a little to do with developing the disease from 
which she suffers, I think admits of little doubt. Frqpi her infancy she has 
eigoyed unusually good health > there is no consumption in her family. 
Before her acceptance by the Society we forwarded two medical certificates^ 
both certifying to her good state of health. There was, humanly speaking, 
a prospect of her living to labour in the vineyard many years. 

*• I should have been glad to have written home and asked your advice 
before finally deciding upon returning, but that the case did not admit of. I 
feel that I shall not want your sympathy, and that, under the circumstances, • 
you will approve of the course I am taking. 

" Our present purpose is to leave early in the month of May. This is rather 
early, and some would dissuade us from attempting the journey so soon ; but 
Dr. Davidson says most decidedly that it is the least of two evils, as he fears, 
if Mrs. P. stays till June, she will not be able to take the journey. * ♦ * 

" But to turn for a little from my trials to my joys. You will be pleased to 
know that we are still permitted to pursue our great work without interruption, 
and that in my labours I meet with much encouragement, and with much that 
calls for gratitude and praise. I have been able to make considerable progress 
in the language, so that I can read very fairly, and carry on a conversation 
without very much difficulty. In connection with my Church I read and pray. 
and now conduct my Church meetings. I have not yet preached, as the school has 
taken up so much of my time lately. It will interest you to know that since 
the death of Mr. Stagg the numbers have not decreased, but that we still have 
an average attendance of some 110 children. In the various branches of in- 
struction they make very satisfactory progress, and, from the observations I 
have made, I think they prove themselves on an equality with many children 
in our English schools. My chapel at Analakely continues to be well attended, . 
and at our Church meeting last Wednesday we admitted six moi*e new 

" In the midst of so much that is encouraging, it is with feelings of deep sor- 
row that I anticipate my removal from this scene of labour, while those among 
whom I have laboured are equally sorry that I should leave them. The Chris*

On Indian Hissioaanes frequently visit these scenes o£ public lesorty in 
vrhich great nnmbeis of the people are gathered together, and advaatageous 
oppovtuaities are afibrded of preaehing and teaching the troths of salvation 
to thousands who have never heard the joyfal sound. The Rfv. G-eoiblge 
Shkewsbxtrt, of Berhampore, in the month of March last visited a Mela, 
distant about eighteen miles from the city of Moorshedabad, and his description 
of the scene which follows will afford both interest and instruction. It 
exhibits, indeed, in common with all forms of Paganism, the mournful com- 
bination of credulity, superstition^ and gross vice ; and should remind us of 
the difficulties and discouragements «nder which our Missionary Srethren 
pursue their generous but trying labours, and t^ach us the duty of sustaining 
ihem under their burdens by affectiomii sympathy and earnest prayer. 



" This fair was instituted to commemorate the miracnlous finding of an image 
of Shiv. The story is briefly this : — A certain man was in the habit of sending 
his cows to graze in a field by the river's side, until it happened that they 
came home with their udders empty. This was repeated again and again, 
and, on a watch being set, it was discovered that the cows gave their milk of 
their own accord, over a stone half buried in the ground. This, as may be ■ 
supposed, perplexed the man not a little, and at length became the subject of 
his waking thoughts and nightly dreams ; at any rate, the story goes that one 
ni^t Shiv appeared to him in a vision* and said, * Take me up and build me 
a house.' This explained all the mystery. That stone was Shiv, to whom, 
under his name of Kopil Eshwar, cows are sacred. The man obeyed the 
vision, built a temple, set up the stone idol in it, and called it Kopil Eshwar. 
The fame of the new shrine spread abroad, and people began to resort to it. 
Tlie first temple has long since disappeared ; it was swallowed up in an en- 
croachment of the river. I mentioned this to a man as an instance of the 
vanity of idols, since if Shiv could not save his own house, how could he save 
others ; but the answer of the man was ready and complete : * Oh,' said he, 
* the god wanted to bathe and called the river to him.' The present temple is 

FOB JULY, 1864. 207 

to the north of Shoktipnre, and the mela is held in an open space between it 
and the town. 


" A mela, or fair, what is it Hke ? Not exactly like an English fair, nor jet 
altogether unlike. They were no donbt established in the first instance to 
meet a real want. In large districts, scattered over with villages and small 
towns, the annnal mela is the only opportnnity the people have of procuring- 
many articles of daily use, without taking a journey to some large town, and 
accorcBngly they resort to the mela for the sake of procuring a supply. As 
roads and railroada multiply, the need for the mela is done away. We hear 
a great deal of their former magnitude, but they are not very large now, and 
€very year we may expect to see them become less. 

''At these melaa, as at English fairs, the shops or stalls are ranged in rows 
forming a kind of street, sometimes with an awning of some sort stretched 
from, side to side. Most of the shops are of the slightest description. They 
consist of three sides and a roo( all of sticks and straw, peihi^ with a middle 
wall which shuts off a small spaoe where the shopkeeper may sleep and ec^ 
Stnu^nires of a more substantial kind are reared where goods more valuable 
or more perishable are kept, but all are sHght, and one can hardly help specu- 
lating npoa the rate at which they would fly before the north-western koiri* 
caaea which come on at this time of the year ; but fortunately the weather has 
been remarkably fine during my stay. In the various stalls are to be seen 
almost everythiug the native ever wants : vessels of all kinds of earth, stone, 
asid brass, for eating, drinking, and cooking; gods and goddesses^ door-posts, 
window-frames, and shop-benches or counters. Lions and shrimps are repre- 
sented in clay, painted to loc^ like silver ; but why these two alone of all the 
animal creation, I really cannot tell. Here, too, are hookhas, shoes, sweetmeats, 
books, boxes, looking-glasses, whistles, toys, ^ces, tobacco^ &c., &c. The 
wh(^ thing is stamped with more of a commercial appearance than fairs in 
England. Trade and not amusement is the presiding genius. The only pro- 
visioa for amusement that I saw was a kind of turn-about or up-and-down, 
something like what are common in England. Ton may get in and take a 
ride in it of ten or twelve times up and down for the small charge of one ploe. 


" To this place I came on the 14fth of this month (March), intending to stay 
about a fortnight. Close by Shoktipore is a silk-factory with a small house 
belonging to it. The factory is closed, and the house unoccupied, so I sought 
and obtained permission to use the house for the few days of my stay. Two 
Oatechists, Gbunoli and Porom, are with me, besides Bishonath, who has 
come to sell Bibles. We have been out morning and evening to preach in the 
mela and the villages around ; iu the morning the two Oatechists going in 
one direction, and I in another, while in the evening we went all together to 
the mela. Here too Bishonath took his stand for the best part of the day, 
with his books exposed for sale. 

** 1 was at first greatly disappointed with the size of the mela, it was so 
mneh smaller than what I expected ; sad though it increased consideraldy 
aftermrds, it is not very large now. Howbeit, we have always had a good 


number of listeners. As I pass through the bazar, I often hear it said, ' There 
goes Jesus Christ's man ' — an honourable appellation — would that I deserved 
it more. Amongst the listeners have been those whose bearing could not but 
inspire one with hope. Quiet and serious, they listened attentively to tlie 
preached word, and went away apparently pondering what they had heard. 
There were some who annoyed us by coming day after day with the same 
questions, and interrupting us with the same objections; yet, when ihej 
protest that they really desire to get at the truth, why may I not, at least 
sometimes, believe them P It certainly cannot be an easy thing for a man to 
abandon as wrong that which for twenty or thirty or forty years he has firmly 
held to be right. 


" Of a very large portion of the people I think it may be said that they are 
altogether careless about which is true — Christianity or Hindooism. It con- 
tents them to do what their fathers did and their neighbours are doing, and 
they cannot conceive that they ought to change their religion because they 
have not a better reason for keeping it. Besides, they like, as it is natural 
they shoidd like, the licence which their religion allows them ; and then there 
is the fear of breaking caste. They commend the truths of the Bible, admit 
the entire reasonableness of the Divine plan of salvation, offer not a word in 
opposition to what we advance, but just go away ignoring the question 
altogether. What can we do to arouse them P We tell them again and again 
the message of salvation, and pray for an exercise of Gknl's awakening power. 
Only let them have such a sense of the powers of the world to come as shall 
overcome their fears about losing caste, and then they will come to the cross. 
Oh, when will the Breath come and breathe upon these slain that they ma^ 

" This negative kind of resistance is discouraging, but most heart-sickening 
at times is the active opposition we encounter. It is in this .that we see most 
of the blindness and wickedness of the human heart. The lust and obscenity 
of their gods and goddesses are defended with the most unblushing effrontery, 
and the greatest falsehoods and absurdities are put forth with bi*azen-&ced 
assurance. I have no time to write, nor would you have patience to read, all 
that passes between us. Indeed, I cannot write that of which I am often 
obliged to speak. One's heart is ready to break to see men's minds beclouded 
with ignorance and sin, and they loving to have it so. 

*' The Maliommedans, as usual, treated us with indifference and contempt. 
Said they, * We worship Qod, what do we want with your Jesus ? Our books 
do not tell us to worship Him.' And so they turn from us with scorn, or 
noisily oppose us. A very respectable and intelligent looking man one day 
pushed his way through the crowd when I was speaking, and began what was 
meant as a very severe rebuke, for my saying that Jesus was God. 


" Books of all kinds are eagerly sought after. The desire to get them is 
only equalled by the unwillingness to pay for them, and in too many 
instances I am afraid a book is valued, not as containing so much truth, bat 
as consisting of so much paper. Bishonath has been very unsuccessful in 

FOB JULY, 1864. 209 

seDing the Scriptures. I fixed very low prices — about a quarter of the value, 
yet even that was too much. So long have tracts and Scriptures been given 
away, that our asking a price is looked upon as an imposition, and resented 
as such. Boys were the most perseveiing applicants. Seldom did I ga 
through the bazar without a number of youngsters running after me and 
shouting, ' Sahib, give me a Jesus Christ;' meaning, of course, a book about . 
Him. Rather more than three hundred tracts were given away — not many, 
you may think ; but many of these consist of from thirty to forty pages, and . 
the number of readers is small compared with the population. 

" I expect to go back to Berhampore to-morrow, having been down here . 
now just a fortnight. I think my stay ends just at the right time. The wind 
is whistling and seems to threaten a storm. I shall be happy if I escape one 
on my way.

"March 28th, 1864.'' 



The friends of the Society are well aware that the extension of the Gospel"^ 
in the province of South Teavancoke has been much greater than in any 
other part of/India in which the Society labours. Its operations in that pro- 
vince have been prosecuted for more than half a century, and at the present 
time there are eight efficient European labourers. They, however, derive their, 
greatest assistance and encouragement from a numerous body of Native 
AgentSf many of whom are admirably qualified for their peculiar labours. 
One of their number has lately been called to his rest. He bore the honoured 
name of James Shebman, and was supported by the kind friends at Surrey 
Chapel who were so long blest with the ministry of that man of God. The 
Rev. G. O. Newpoet, of Pareychaley, in which district the departed Evangelist 
chiefly laboured, has supplied a brief memorial of his life, from which we are 
sure the friends of native agency will be encouraged to help forward that 
most important branch of Missionary work. 

" Pareychaley, 29th April, 1864. 

'* My dear De. Tidman, — ^Interested as you are in our Missions in generalt 
and especially in that department of them which has to do more immediately 
with tiie heathen themselves, viz. the itinerant department, you will be 
very sorry to hear that our friend James Sherman, the indefatigable and 
warm-hearted preacher to the heathen in the Pareychaley district, has gone 
to his rest. His death, though doubtless great gain to him, is a great losa 
to the Mission; for though we may get other agents to take his place, who 
are his superiors in education and ability, we shall never get any to surpass 
(if even to equal) him in courage, earnestness, and devotedness to his work. 

" I have endeavoured to collect a few particulars of his life, for the informa- 
tion of his kind supporters and other friends of the Mission. 



** It appears that he was formerly a palinjra-tree climber, like the great 
migoritj of our Christians in Travancore, and that he became a convert to 
Christianitj about twenty-five years ago. He was then living in the Neyoor 
district, and continued to do so for some time afterwards. About twelve or 
thirteen years ago he was employed by the Missionary in the printing-office 
at that station, but still continued to climb trees night and morning. After- 
wards, during the time that Rev. C. C. Leitch had charge of the Neyoor district, 
he was fully employed as aCatechist, and laboured in that capacity for some 
three or four years. 


" Conceiving himself specially adapted for preaching the Gospel to the ' 
heathen, and having his heart full of that glorious work, he left his settled 
employment and travelled hither and thither in the prosecution of the labour 
which he himself had chosen. As he was very poor, and unable to subsist 
without a fixed salary, or the charity of the Christians whom he might fall in with, 
he drew up a sort of testimonial or petition stating his object in thus moving 
about, and the need there was that they shoidd supply his bodily necessities. 
In this document he states, that he had a wife and five children depending on 
hdm for support, and that this thought gave him some uneaflomeM at first; bat 
when he remembered that it was written, ' Caat all your care upon Him, for 
He caa-eth for you,' he rid himself of his fears, and gave himself up to Iu0 

" This tour, if such it may be called, was chiefly confined to TinneveUy, but 
he travelled as far north as Madras, a distance of 400 or 500 miles from his 
home, trusting entirely for his sustenance to the charity of strangers, and 
preaching the Gospel of the blessed Gk>d to all cafftes and classes of people 
Whom he met in his way. 

" I am in possession of a letter written by a native Obrifltian of Wnnefelly 
reepectmg him. He says thart, altiiougfa many x>enone had come ftom 
Tvavaaoore into TinneveUy fear the professed puzpoee of preaohdng the glad 
udings of salvation to the heathen, some of them were merely aetoaited by a 
desire of getting a comfortable livdihood. This man, (James Sherman), 
however, was proved to be of a different stamp ; for though they purposely 
kept him without food a whole day and night, and plied him with vexing and 
annoying ({uestions while he was preaching to the heathen, he never flinched, 
bvt ooostinued proclaiming his message in the faoe of all opposition nntil 
thoroughly weaned out witii hunger acnd fiitigae. 

"' Afiier this tour, he returned to Trarancore and came to reside in 
Pareychaley district. The Bev. J. Abbe, who was l^en Missionary here, em- 
ployed him as an itinerant preadier to the heathen, which office he held till 
his death. 


** Since I entered upon the charge of this district, there has been no agent 
whom I saw less, or spoke to less, than James Sherman. He never had any 
besineBS to transact with me beyond presenting his report asad receiving his 
pay month after month ; nor had I any need, on my part, to interfere in any 

FOR fftJLT, 1864. 211 

▼ay with kis labours. He knew and loyed his work, and would hme gone on 
josi Hhe same whetber there had been a Missionarj orer him or not. AhhoBg^ 
Ida house was in the Mission compound, and rery near the bimgalow, I scarce 
erer saw him, for he was rarely at home, but almost always out in the 
distrkft prosecuting his glorious mission. 

** I remember on one occasion he asked permission to go to Nagercoil to see 
the Assistant Missionaxy. I gare him permission, but added, ' Make yourself 
useful on ike way.' This occurred before I could 8x>eak in the vernacular, and 
therefore the words were obliged to be translated to him by an interpreter. 
I don't know whether they were interpreted as I intended them or not, nor 
iThetiher Ms reply was clearly rendered to myseSf in return ; but I was informed 
that he replied to t&e effect that he wcbs not in the habit of letting any oppor-' 
tunity, however small, pass away without doing his becrfc to improve it. This 
testimcmy I believe to be true.

" Friday is allowed the agents of this district as a r^t-day, for ihear bodily 
and flpiritfml refireshment ;- but I do not believe that our departed &iend. 
Jamas ^lerman, ever todk ik&t day for himself. For his spiaitual improve-

along the road from village to village — and as for his bodily rest, he never 
s ee mod io fed weary escept when really 91. 


*' He 'WM a most courageous and unoooapiroBEiisBig preacher to 'the heathen, 
and his sseal was not always tempered with judgment. On one occasion, when 
the ladies of the royal family were traweSiBg along the public road, he managed 
to force his way to the palanquiii of the mother of the king, and besovght h^ 
to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. For this, I believe, he was soundly 
thcaalied by the peam (guards) who were on guard at the time. On anotftier 
osoBsicn he entered onto the presence of the king himself, and in^ed him in 
like maimflT to trust in tiie Saviour of tbe world. This time he was seised and 
iminrisaned ; bat, on the king learning who he was, he was set sit Bl>evty. 

^ While speaking <m this point, I will just make one ^ciaraot from tlie last 
report he ever presented. He writes : ' Macrch 5th. Having heard the Dewan 
(Fraie Minister) was to be at Ooodeiory to-day, I proceeded thither, but 
esald only fs«ach to the crowd of people who attended him. When I spoke 
to t^iein abcut the salvation of their souls, some of Hic officials ariced, ' What 
is salvation ?' I replied, ' Heaven.' They then asked, ' Who has ever seen

** From what I have said, you will easily imagine how surprised I felt a few 
days ago, when I saw James Sherman standing near the Mission bungalow 
and doing nothing. I was not long kept in suspense. He said he had felt iH 
the day before, but persisted in g:)ing to the market to preach aa usual — ^had 


retomed much worse, and Had been very ill with dysentery the whole night 
long. I gave him some medicine, but did not take very much notice of it, as 
I had had several cases of dysentery, and in fact had had a slight attack 
myself. I thought, therefore, that the change in the weather might have 
produced it, and that it would pass off soon. A day or two passed, but he 
was still ill. I had given him yarious powerful remedies, but they all failed 
of the desired effect. I therefore thought it best for him to go to Neyoor to 
Dr. Lowe, and provided four men to carry him, for he was too ill to walk. 

" This was done ; but he said he thought he shoidd have died on the road. 
For a few days he Seemed improving ; but relapse came on, and he sank 
through excessiye weakness. Of his last few minutes I have received the follow- 
ing brief statement from Dr. Lowe. He writes : * You will be sorry to hear 
that poor James Sherman died yesterday afternoon. He was improving till 
Sabbath morning ; but he then had a renewal of his attack. This was checked 
by Monday morning a good deal, but he sank through weakness. He was 
very happy, and very grateftd for any attention we showed. He spoke to 
his daughter very solemnly, and seemed very anxious, just before death, to 
warn all and invite all to the Saviour. I saw him in the forenoon, and he 
was full of joy, as he said, in prospect of soon seeing Jesus. On going my 
rounds among my patients, in the afternoon, I had just entered the room 
where he was, when he died.' 

'* Such was the end of James Sherman, and such was the ruling principle 
of his life, to ' warn all, and invite all to come to the Saviour.' I have 
mentioned before, how great our loss is, and you, sir, will folly understand it. 
The Hfe, labours, and death of such a man are a great encouragement to us 
who labour here, and I doubt not would be to all supporters of Missions in 
England, if known to them. The &ct that the Gospel has saved such a man, 
has been his life comfort, and his daily message to the heathen, and at length 
secured him a happy and triumphant entry into glory, is a sufficient proof 
that the labours of missionaries have not been in vain ; and it furnishes 
strong grounds for hoping that in future time many more like him will arise 
to honour the Saviour by their lives, and glorify Him by their labours. 

« I am afraid I have tal^en up too much of your time, and that you will 
think I have made too much of the incidents which I have narrated. I have 
thought it due, however, to the kind supporters of James Sherman to give 
them a correct and full account of their late representative in the Mission 
field. I shall feel glad, therefore, if you will kindly communicate to them as 
much of this as you think they will care to know, and beg them not to 
discontinue their subscription on account of the death of their agent, 
but to use their utmost endeavour to double it, so as to support two such 
agents in this district. Li my printed report of this district for the year 
I inserted extracts from our lamented friend's journal, and mentioned the 
£act that nearly 100,000 heathens are calculated to be living in Parey- 
chaley district alone, in addition to the many thousands in other parts of 
Travancore ; it will, therefore, be obvious that two agents in this department 
of our Mission work are insufficient, but will be truly acceptable. You will 
have seen from my report, which I forwarded in Febniary last, that for the 
last seven months I have been enabled to preach to the people in their own

It is with deep regret we have to announce the recent remoyal by death 
of several highly esteemed labourers in the field of foreign service, the 
majority being females, the exemplary and devoted wives of missionaries, 
who survive to deplore their loss, and to carry on their arduous work un- 
cheeied by the soothing companionship and ever ready help which had here- 
tofore divided their cares and multiplied their enjoyments. 


Our departed Mend, who, with five other missionary agents, left this 
country for Madagascar in April, 1862, on arriving at his destination applied 
himself with assiduity to the department of labour assigned to him, viz. : the 
estabHshment of juvenile schools, and the special instruction of a higher class 
of pupils, with a view to their becoming qualified for the office of Teachers. 
In these labours of love our Mend continued to be engaged until the middle 
of January last, when he was attacked by Malagasy fever, and, to the deep 
regret of his Brethren in the Mission, and of his numerous and attached 
pupils, he died on the 5th of the following month. The subjoined parti- 
culars are given in a letter firom Dr. Davidson, dated Antananarivo, February 
29th, ult.:— 

" It is my painful duty to let you know of the death of one of our number. 
Mr. Stagg, our kind and devoted brother and fellow-labourer, has gone to his 
reward. For some constitutions the climate of Antananarivo is trying, and 
our devoted brother had never enjoyed good health since his arrival ; yet his 
constitution did not seem to be much affected by the slight fever from which 
he every now and again suffered. These attacks of fever yielded readily to 
remedies, and were never so serious as to cause us any anxiety. He attended 
the ceremony of laying the foundation-stone of the Hospital on Thursday, 
Januaiy 14th, and on the Saturday following he took tea at my house and 
seemed happy and hopeful. He said, ' I have never felt better since I came 
to Madagascar,' and he looked well and was cheerful. On Monday, the 18th, 
he felt slightly indisposed, and on Tuesday requested me to visit him. I 
found him in bed, slightly feverish, but nothing to indicate a fatal or even 
severe disease. About the end of the week the fever declared itself, and 


ire saw that it was of an iirfltiiimtt"^ and not of a ivmittent itype. 
Deliriuin set in, first of a gloomy and sad, then of a cheerfdl kind, and abont 
a week after the ferer began it became ftirious. Under appropriate treatment 
the fever abated, and for a day or two we almost hoped he might recover. On 
Sunday, the Slat January, however, the fever returned, and the delirium with 
it. He became gradually worse, and died insensible about five o'clock a.m. on 
Friday, February 5th, after having been ill for above a fortnight. Not only do 
we who remain feel his loss, but his gentleness had endeared him to the 
natives, some thousands of whom, including his scholars, followed him in 
tears to his grave at Mahamasina, where he awaits the coming of his 

The Rev. W. ElHs, in a letter dated February 15th, makes the following 
additional statement : — 

^ BnriBg our dear brother's iUftess he was seldom collee^ed and sensible 
for «ny k>Qg period together, and sosnetimes the violcnoe ef delirium -was 
truly distressing to those who, sight and day, were waiching at his bed-side. 
But though the intervals during which his mind was calm were few, yet they 
sufficed to show that his soul was stayed on his Redeemer, and his mind 
supported and cooiforted by the cheering words of Christ. An evening or 
two before his departure he asked ^. Beane, mdio was sitting wdtk him«' to 
vead a portion of Scripture. On being asked what $&rtiatt he would lifae, he 
said the fourteenth of John'js Gosx>eL He then .asked Mr. P-eame to pv^^ 
with him. In the prayer he appeared folly to join, as in the Amen, ttb the 
close. He was not able to speak much afterwards. 

^'TBb disposition was amiable, and peculiarly adapted to interest the 
feelings and gain the confidence of children ; and we all feel deeply the loss 
Which iSke Missien has sustained l:>y his removal, and the absence ofhis peace- 
M afMt and sincere friendship, from our reduced number ; we beHeve also 
that our grief was truly and escteneivdy shaired %y tihe children he had 
inetmeted. Eariy in his ilfatess the Queen sent two offfloers to inquire how 
he was, having been made acquainted with his illness by the reports widoh 
were conveyed to her of the lamentations of the children. He was indus- 
triona, persevering, and deified to his truly impertaoit woxk, foad was not 
only beloved by his brethren, but i^epectod as a £uthfol and «iffeotionate 
toacher by the community in general, while he was regarded with personal 
estoem by some of the highest nobles in iJie country. We desire to bow witili 
profound aubmiseion beneath the stroke of the Divine hand, which has fatten 
heavily upon xra, and upon the Jiiesiim in its present inierestbig stato. It is 
mysterious to us that the labours of our departed brother in a department of 
effort at all times important, but especially so here at present, should have 
been so suddenly and unexpectedly terminated. We do aot repine: we 
believe that He who holdeth our souls in lijfe doeth all things well, and is 
able, though we see not how, to make even Idns affliotive removal torn out to 
the furtherance of the Gospel in Madagascar. The reanains of our dear 
brother were, on the moniing of the 7th inst, depooted by the aide of the 
graves of Mr. Hastie, Messrs. Hovendon, Eowlands, Ty^rman, and others.**

*' To-daj we conveyed our departed friend to his last rest, and at half-past 
seven had assembled at the honse oocupied by him, so as to be rea^y to start 
at eight o'clock. Besides the missionaries, two nephews of Mr. Labotrde 
joined, together with a great number of native Ohristians and the School 
children, to pay their last req^ects to onr esteemed and beloved brother; and 
when all were together in the school-room« a Malagasy hymn having been 
sung, Mr. Pearse read a portion of Scripture, and I prayed in "BSi gliali^ after 
whioh the procession marched slowly down to the burial-ground. At the 
grave an English hymn was sung, Mr. Ellis addressed us in Sngliah, and 
Mr. Toy prayed; then one of the preachers from Analakely, with which 
churdi Mr. Stagg had been associated, addressed a few words to the natives 
aad prayed, and thus the sad ceremony concluded." 


The tabject of this notiee, with her husband, ^ Ber. Behxaicin Hiob,

station of Bavoaloxx, where, in oonjiuMiion with *Uie o^ier monbers of the 
Mission, Mrs. Bice prosecuted her labonrs, more especially in the depart- 
ment of female education, wilSi exemplary devotion and pereeverance, nntH 
the period of her lamented decttti, which happened on the llth March, ult. 
Blessed is the death of the righteous ; and although the surviving family of 
our excellent Mend may long deplore the loss of one so justly beloved, 
they can cherish the uDhesitating and joyful assurance that ^eir loss has 
proved her unspeakable gain. 

The following brief memorial of Mrs. Bice has been drawn up by her 
husband : — 

^Mrs. Bioe was bom at Wedimry, in Wihshire, March IS, 1807. With 
her early history I am not pacrtienkrly aoquainted, except that I ha^e heard 
that in childhood she was chanicterized by the same quiet, retiring diapoeidotfi, 
which distinguished her through Hie. She was blessed wit& a angularly 
pkms and exemj^ary mo<;her, tar whom she ever cherished the deepest affeo* 
tiea, and who entered iaito her rait at a very advanced age (eighty •four, I 
b^eve), on the llth March, 1868, exactly cne year before her lametnted 
daughter. Through the influence exerted upon her mind by this exoellont 
woman, she was early led to dedicate her heart to the Lord. 

When I first became acquainted with her she was a very active member of 
the Church then under the pastoral care of the Bev. Thomas Lewis, Union 
Ohapel, Islington. Not conteKtt with seeking only her own sooTs salvatioii, 
she laboured in the Sunday School, and by tract distribution, and the visita- 
tion of the ignorant, to boring others unto God. The state of the heathen aieo 
ezdted her oompaasion. It was not, therefore, simply as a matter of doty, 


from her alliance with a miBsionary, but as a matter of choice, that ehe pre- 
pared to enter upon the work of Christ in this dark land. 

** During our voyage to this country in the latter end of 1836, although 
suffering much from sea-sickness, she prosecuted the study of Ganarese almost 
daily, with the assistance of a missionary on board who was acquainted with 
the language. The same course was continued with a Moonshee, a^r our 
arriyal at Bangalore. Although these studies were soon interrupted by the 
care of a young family, yet they were resumed from time to time as leisure 
and strength permitted. The result was, that she had a very fair knowledge 
of the language, could read and write it without difficulty, and could under- 
stand and profit by Ganarese preaching. 

" During the whole period of our reddence in India, now upwards of twenty- 
seven years, my dear wife laboured to the utmost of her strength in promotmg 
the good of the females of this country ; and, had health and domestic duties 
permitted, it was in her heart to have done much more. Her attention was 
principally directed to the Grirls' Boarding School, in which many have been 
trained who are now intelligent Ghristian wives and mothers able to instruct 
their own children, and in some instances to assist in the native female 
schools. There are, at present, twenty-eight girls in the Boarding School, six 
of whom were last year admitted to the Ghiuch, the fruit, to a large extent, of 
the salutary influence, and Bible Glass instruction, of her whose loss we now 
mourn. In addition to the immediate care of the girls, a correspondence, 
which often made heavy demands upon time and strength, had to be kept up 
with friends in England who contribute for the support of the school. This 
correspondence was usefrd in keeping alive missionary feeling in various 
circles, and in maintaining interest in female education iu India. 

" My beloved wife had long been suffering from symptoms of asthma, and 
from great debility of constitution. Ghange of air was recommended, and 
might have been attended with benefit, but circumstances were not fiEivourable 
to her adopting this course at that time. A residence on the hills had been 
determined on, and preparations were in progress for her departure, when our 
Heavenly Father, in His all- wise and gracious providence, saw fit to lay His 
hand upon her and say, ' Gome up hither.' 

** Throughout her illness, and especially towards the close, her sufferings 
were distressingly great, but no murmur ever escaped her lips : once only 
she wrung her hands in anguish, and cried, ' O my Father !' 

** The day before her removal she gave utterance to her feelings in such 
brief expressions as her pain and weakness would allow, and particularly ex- 
pressed to me her great thankfulness that she could think of all her dear 
duldren as walking in the ways of the Lord. ' For this,' she said, ' I have 
prayed and laboured, and God has given me my heart's desire.' She spoke 
of the great mercies which we had received at the Lord's hands, through a 
long series of years, and said, ' Do not grieve : all is well. My dear, dear 
husband, the Lord support and comfort you. We shall all meet again. It 
will not be long.' She referred to each of her absent children by name, and 
said, 'The Lord preserve them. Tell them to trust in Him.' *I have 
trusted the Lord from fmy childhood, and He will not forsake me now.' ' I 
have been an unprofitable servant.' ' A guilty, weak, and helpless worm.

on Thy kind arms I fall.' At my request, our Mend Dr. Brett (for whose 
xmremitting attention and kindness 1 shall ever feel deeply grateful) offered 
prayer at her bed-side, commending herself and her family to the grace and 
power of the Lord Jesus ; a prayer which greafcly refreshed all our spirits, 
and at the dose of which my dear wife responded a hearty ' Amen/ thank- 
ing him also for all the solicitude he had shown on her behalf. At her own 
request, our brother Mr. Sewell afterwards came and prayed with her. 

" Once or twice, when expressing my deep sorrow at witnessing her suffer- 
ings, she said, ' Oh, I cannot tell you what I feel : it is such a struggle !' But 
relief was mercifially afforded in this respect some few hours before her death, 
and she sunk at last quietly and gently, literally &lling asleep in Jesus, March 
11th, 1864. A little while before her departure, I whispered in her ear, 
' Do you know me P' She said ' Yes.' I added, ' Do you feel peaceful and 
happy P She replied, ' Yes,' and soon after became quite insensible. 

" Blessed words ! words not the utterance alone of dying lips, but confirmed 
by the whole course of life : ' Peaceful and happy;' and that peace and hap- 
piness springing from Jesus, the Gk>d-man, the Redeemer of the lost, the 
conqueror of death, the Lord of life and glory. Best, beloved one, in the 
bosom of Emmanuel. In His presence there is fulness of joy : at His right 
hand there are pleasures for evermore. 

** The mortal remains of the departed were followed to the tomb, March 
12tii, by a large number of friends, both European and native ; and many a 
tear was shed over the grave, especially by the native girls and females of 
the Mission, whom she had loved with a mother's love, and for whose present 
and everlasting wel&re she had ever cheerfully toiled. Her loss to her 
family, and to the Mission, is great. But though His faithful servants die, 
J^ovah lives. He will bring light out of darkness, and joy out of sorrow, to 
the glory of His own holy name. 

"The solemn event was improved to a numerous congregation in the 
Mission Chapel, by the Bev. J. Sewell, March 20th, from the text, Luke viii. 52, 
' l^e is not dead, but sleepeth.' " 


The third instance of mortality in the Mission families which we have to 
record, is that of Mrs. Baylis, the wife of the Bey. F. Batlis, of Neyoor, 
South Travancore. On leaving England in the year 1850, Mr. and Mrs. 
Baylis were in the first instance stationed at Madras, but about three years 
afterwards they removed to Keyoor, where, so long as health and strength 
permitted, Mrs. B. approved herself an earnest and loving helpmate to 
her husband in each department of Christian effort, and thereby acquired the 
aflfectionate esteem of all about her. After a period of much bodily suffering 
she entered into the joy of her Lord on the 25th February, ult. 

The following narrative of the last illness and death of Mrs. Baylis has 
been furnished by the Bev. John Lowe, Medical Missionary.

"My dsab De. Tidman,— Since last mail left we have been called to 
mourn the loss of one greatly beloved by the people, and very deax to all the 
members of onr Mission circle. 

" From the letter Mr. BayUa fcnrwarded, vid MarseiUee^ about a fortni^t

death of his beloved wife. Calmly and peaeefully she 'fell asle^ in Jesus' 
on the morning of Thursday, Febmary 25th, leaving behind a sweet testimony 
to the power of Divine grace and the preoioiisness and all-sufieienoy of Imt

'' Since Mrs. BayHs returned firom "Ragland at the ck«e of 1861 she' has 
never enjoyed good health, though in general able to engage more or less im

she was seized with painM paroxysms of the disease which at kst^has piroved
