THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 



OF THE 



UPPER CANADA BIBLE SOCIETY. 



, Although the past twelve months have been a time of disappointment 
and stringency in money matters to nearly every one in our Province, 
the Directors of the Upper Canada Bible Society cannot begin their 
Report otherwise than with a note of praise to God. Whilst OUT 
Heavenly Father has withholden from us, in some measure, the tem 
poral prosperity which we wished and expected, He has been giving very 
abundantly the blessing of His Holy Spirit. In some places there has 
been very marked religious awakening, and the harvest of souls has 
rejoiced the hearts of both sowers and reapers. Nor has the blessing 
been confined to a few places and congregations. Ministers of all churches 
in different parts of the country, have noticed an unusual readiness 
among men to be spoken to about the salvation of their souls. Another 
evidence that God s Spirit has been working on the minds of the people, 
which is of special interest to this Society, is, that whilst all kinds of 
other business has been depressed, there has been an increased demand 
for God s Word. This has been seen very plainly in the Colporteurs 
Reports, which have come before the Directors from month to month 
and it is very gratifying to notice that although the proceeds of sales 
have decreased, and, indeed, form the only item in which there has 
been any falling off, yet the number of copies issued has been greater. 
It is true that the issues of the Society have not increased very largely ; 
but taking into consideration that colportage has been seriously inter 
rupted by death and sickness, that money has been so scarce, andHhat 
the sales of Bibles by the ordinary booksellers have been larger, the 
Directors regard even this slight increase as encouraging. 

The number of copies of the Scriptures issued by the Society during 
the year, is 38,174, being 603 more than in the previous twelve months. 
There is a large increase in the number of Bibles issued, and a falling-off 
in the number of Testaments and portions. This makes the total num 
ber of issues since the formation of the Society, 1,010,717. 

Another cause for thankfulness is t^at, in such a time of stringency, 
the operations of the Society have riot been curtailed by lack of means. 
The Directors would, of course, have been glad to have had more to send 
to the Parent Society for its great work among the millions of heathenism, 



12 ANNUAL REPORT. 

Romanism, and Mahommedanism ; and they feel that our Province has not 
yet done as much as it ought in this matter. Nevertheless, they do 
feel thankful that in such a year as the past there has been no need of 
curtailment. It is true they have not been able to carry out all their 
plans of colportage, but it has been owing to other circumstances which 
will be explained in another part of the Report. 

Having received the handsome bequest of $2,400 from the executors 
of the late John Sanderson, Esq., of Woodstock, the total income of the 
Society has been larger than in either of the last two years. When this 
bequest, and another item which properly belonged to former years, are 
deducted, we find that the income from ordinary sources has decreased, 
but not in a greater degree than might have been expected. The total 
income has been $32,0*3.61 ; that from ordinary sources, $29,090.43. 
The income of last year was $29,510.97. The falling-off is entirely in 
the proceeds of sales and interest, and it is very encouraging to find that 
notwithstanding the financial stringency, the free contributions from 
branches in direct communication with the Board, have amounted to 
$362.51 more than last year. 

There is thus much to cheer and encourage our hearts in the retrospect 
of the year just closed. We thank God, and take courage. 

In reviewing the past year, however, there is one event which we can 
not advert to without a feeling of sadness ; although to the servant of 
God to whom we refer, that event was indeed great gain. We refer to 
the death of the Rev. Canon Baldwin, one of the Vice-Presidents of the 
Upper Canada Bible Society, and one of its stedfast and devoted friends. 
To mention the name of Canon Baldwin before a Christian assembly in 
Toronto, is sufficient to call forth a deep feeling of respect and affection. 
Perhaps no one has enjoyed in an equal degree the high regard and deep 
love of all evangelical Christians. Fidelity to principle, unbending adher 
ence to what he felt to be right, and at the same time transparent 
honesty of purpose, and frankness and kindness of disposition, pre-emi 
nently distinguished Canon Baldwin. While he had an enlightened 
attachment to the church of which he was a devoted minister, and was 
ever zealous in promoting her true interests, he loved all who loved the 
Lord Jesus Christ, and had a large-hearted charity and catholicity of 
spirit which led him to take a deep interest in all institutions like the 
Bible* Society. We no longer see his pleasant, happy, hopeful face in 
our gatherings, but his memory will long be fragrant in Toronto and in 
Canada. Truly " the memory of the just is blessed. n " Blessed are the 
dead which die in the Lord from henceforth ; yea, saith the Spirit, that 
they may rest from their labours, and their works do follow them." 

AUXILIARY AND BRANCHES. 

The report of the London Auxiliary shows, that efforts are being made 
to render it more efficient, and its receipts during the past year are in 
advance of those of previous years. Its contributions, however, towards 
the circulation of the Scriptures, have not advanced. Forty of its 
Branches have sent an aggregate sum of $1,408.92^0 this and the Parent 



ANNUAL REPORT. 13 

Society. Last year thirty-nine sent 81,590.71. The other forty-six have 
sent nothing. 

The Directors do not wish to undervalue the reported improvement, 
because there is room for so much more, nor yet to ignore the commen 
dable efforts of those who have brought it about. But as this Society 
pays for all the agency, and the whole sum contributed by that field the 
wealthiest part of the country for the circulation of God s Word is so 
small compared with the expense, the Directors feel convinced that the 
present relations between the Society and its Auxiliary are radically 
wrong, and would respectfully recommend their successors to take the 
subject into their careful consideration. 

One hundred and fifteen of the stronger Branches in direct communica 
tion with the Board, were asked to h6ld their meetings without the help 
of a paid agent, if they felt they could do so without loss of efficiency. 
Sixty of them undertook to do so, and forty-eight of these have sent 
$4,994.83, as free contributions. The others have not yet remitted, but 
most of them will probably do so within a short time. At the closing of 
accounts last year, forty-five Branches that had done without an agent 
had sent in $5,210. At first sight this looks like a falling off. It should, 
however, be noted that several of the largest Branches, such as Guelph 
and Gait, helped to make up that sum last year, but are not included in 
the present list, as they have this year been visited by agents. This one 
fact more than accounts for the difference. But it is also to be remem 
bered, that money has been still more scarce, and owing to this strin 
gency the contributions of some of the visited Branches, as well as 
of many which did without help, have fallen off. On the other hand, 
not a few of those doing without help have sent sums equal, and even 
exceeding their contributions both of last year and the year before, when 
all were visited. Looking at these facts, the Directors feel that there is 
no reason to regret the policy adopted last year of developing the self- 
dependence of the stronger Branches, but on the contrary, regard it as 
decidedly successful. At the same time they think it will be well to 
adhere to the original intention of having each Branch visited, at least 
once in three years. 

The Directors have desired to increase the efficiency more than the 
number of Branches, and have therefore checked rather than encouraged 
the hasty starting of new ones. Yet, whenever there appeared a good 
prospect for the sustenance of an efficient Branch, instructions have been 
given for the formation of such. In this way ten new Branches have 
been added to the list, seven of which have remitted handsome sums, 
and it is hoped that the others will very soon send their contributions. 
Three of these, Ayton, Preston, and Tavistock, have begun their life 
with great vigour, and show every sign of becoming valuabte helpers. 
Their membership is largely German, and it is very encouraging to note 
the zeal and success of the Rev. Mr. Kappele, in enlisting our German 
brethren in the Society s work of spreading God s Word. They are 
entering into it with a heartiness that would rejoice the heart of the 
great Luther, did he witness it. News has also arrived within the last 



14 ANNUAL REPORT. 

few days of the formation of a new Branch at Emerson, in Manitoba. 
On the other hand there have been struck off the list eleven Branches, 
which have been totally unproductive for several years, so that the num 
ber on the list remains the same, but there has been a real increase of 
Sorength. There are 366 Branches in direct communication, and 86 
belonging to the London Auxiliary. 

AGENCY. 

The visitation of the Branches has been done by one permanent and 
twenty-four provisional agents, at a cost of $3,409.70, which is $798 
more than the same item last year. This, however, was expected, and is 
fully accounted for by the fact that it includes a whole year s salary and 
expenses of the Permanent Agent, -whereas last year he was paid for only 
six months and a half. 

In accordance with the original intention and in order to secure one 
of the valuable advantages of the provisional system, five new agents 
were employed in the place of gentlemen who had served the Society for 
several years. In this way a large number of ministers in our Province 
will become thoroughly acquainted with the operations of our Society, 
and will during the rest of their lives more actively influence the mem 
bers of their respective churches in support of it. In the reports of the 
annual meetings of the Branches, we frequently find former agents men 
tioned as delivering hearty, instructive and telling addresses in the inter 
est of the good cause. 

The difficulties met by the agents in travelling have been less than 
usual. But the unreasonableness of some of the Branches in expecting 
the agents to visit them just at the time that will suit each one of them 
best, and the endeavours which have been made to meet their wishes, 
have caused trouble to the agents and expense to the Society which 
might have been saved. Some of the agents have also had much diffi 
culty in getting answers to some of their communications. The Directors 
are glad to know that the officers of most Branches are prompt in 
attending to these matters ; but they hope that in the coming year, all 
will remerr ber that a penny saved is a penny gained, and will use their 
best efforts to get up good meetings at the times of the agents proposed 
visits. It is worthy of notice that the postponed meetings are often 
great failures, both as to attendance and results. 

When they look at the results of the operations of the year, and find 
that the free contributions from the field under the immediate supervi 
sion of the Board, have increased in such a year as the past, the Direc 
tors feel that there is much reason to regard the present plan as good, 
and to congratulate the Society on the general efficienc) T of the Agents, 
the Branch Officers, and the Collectors. 

Extracts from some of the Agents reports will be found on page 25. 

FINANCES. 

The total income of the year has been $32,043 61. Deducting be 
quests and the proceeds of a security, we find the receipts from ordinary 
sources, $29,090 43.

lowing grants : 

To the British and Foreign Bible Society, 500 sterling ; to the Q le- 
bec Bible Society, $500 ; and has placed $500 at the disposal of the 
Colportage Committee for use in Manitoba. On purchase account, 
2,200 has been sent to the Parent Society, leaving a balance of 1,138 
6s. 5d., against which, however, there is a larger stock in hand than at 
the close of last year (about $1,500 more). 

Further particulars will be found in the abstract of Treasurer s 
account. 

DISTRIBUTION. 

The number of Bibles, Testaments, and Portions which have been 
issued from the Society s House during the twelve months is 38,174, 
being 603 more than the number sent out last year. 

Of the^above, 3,719 were sold, and 1,377 issued gratuitously at the 
Depository in Toronto; 27,754 sent to Branch Depositories; 5,324 to 
Colporteurs ; 1,939 were in other languages than in English, and 19 
were Portions in raised characters for the blind. 

The total number of copies issued by the Society since its formation 
is 1,010,717. 

COLPORTAGE. 

The Board regrets to report that the Colportage of the Society has 
been seriously hindered by death, sickness, and the difficulty of getting 
faithful, competent, and robust men, fitted for this arduous work. Mr. 
W. Strain, who had been several years in the service of the Society, 
died in October. Although he had not been ill for any length of time 
before his death, yet it took several weeks to get a suitable man to fill 
his place ; and several of the other colporteurs have been hindered by 
sickness and other circumstances. When these interruptions, and the 



16 ANNUAL REPORT. 

very great scarcity of money are considered, it is not surprising that 
the number of issues through this channel is much smaller than it was 
last year ; nor will any one think that this decrease is owing to any lack 
of zeal or faithfulness on the part of the colporteurs. The time employed 
in this work has amounted to an aggregate of 49 months, and the num 
ber of copies circulated by this instrumentality tc 5,070. 

Efforts have been made through the whole year to secure the services 
of a competent colporteur, able to speak both French and English, to 
labour in the Province of Manitoba. Within the last few weeks these 
efforts have been successful, and the Directors trust that in the coming 
year much of the good seed will, by God s help, be sowed in that im 
portant field, and afterwards bear fruit to His glory in the salvation of 
many souls. 

The Directors regret the hindrances met in this part of the Society s 
work all the more on account of the increased demand among the peo 
ple for the Scriptures, which has been evident from the monthly reports, 
and they are more and more impressed with the importance of this in 
strumentality. It is to be remembered that the colporteurs are not 
mere hawkers, and that the result of their labours cannot be measured 
only by the number of copies circulated. They are men who by their 
life and conversation commend the Book they carry, and lead many 
who do not purchase from them to read Bibles already possessed but 
hitherto unused. Their reports are full of interest. Some extracts are 
given at page 30. 

SISTER SOCIETIES. 

The Directors regret that reports have not yet been received from the 
Kingston, Montreal, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia Bible Societies. 
The Ottawa Society is continuing to carry on its work with vigour. It 
has followed the example of this Society in employing provisional 
agents, and reports that tl the result has so far justified the expectation 
that it would be beneficial," that the annual meetings were larger than 
formerly, and that an impulse had been imparted to the Branches, 
which are reported to be healthier and more promising than they were a 
few years ago, though some still languish. The Colportage of this So 
ciety has always been faithfully attended to, and its records are very 
interesting ; but show that their sales have been much hindered by the 
stringency of the times. Owing to this and other causes, they had not 
employed quite so many colporteurs as in the previous year. The report 
of the Quebec Bible Society has not yet been received, but in a recent 
letter, the Secretary promises to give some particulars about their French 
Colportage work, which he says " thanks to your continued generosity, 
we have been enabled to prosecute with considerable success." In ano 
ther part of his letter, he says they are almost entirely dependent upon 
the aid received from this Society for the maintenance of the French 
Canadian Colportage. Again he says : " We are so completely hedged 
in on all sides by those who are utterly opposed to the work in which 
we are engaged, that it requires a good deal of outside aid to enable us 



ANNUAL REPORT. 17 

to make any progress whatever. The colporteur we have at present in 
the field, a Mr. Gildas, is a fearless, whole-souled man, and prosecutes 
his work with much energy " 

It is a great pleasure to the Directors of the Upper Canada Bible So 
ciety, to report that the Centennial year of the United States has been 
one of encouraging results to our neighbour and elder sister, the Amer 
ican Bible Society. Their report for 1876-7 has, of course, not yet been 
published ; but the Rev. Dr. Gilman, the senior secretary, has cour 
teously forwarded the leading figures, showing the results of their ope 
rations. It is true that the number of their issues, and the proceeds of 
their sales, have fallen short of the previous year ; being respectively 
621,726 and $230,790 against 684,641 and $276,205. But, considering 
the scarcity of money this was to be expected, and Dr. Gilman reports 
that their home distribution has been very satisfactory, in view of its 
having reached parts of their country where there was great lack. It 
was expected also, that when all their returns came in from foreign lands, 
the entire circulation abroad would prove to have been in excess of last 
year. Their foreign work is growing upon their hands. 

It is very pleasing to find that, notwithstanding the continued dul- 
ness in commercial matters, our neighbours have, in the year of their 
national rejoicing, given in free contributions towards the spread of 
God s Word, $61,800 more than in the preceding twelve months. It is 
hoped that this will prove a stimulating example to ourselves and others. 

The year has also been marked by a pleasant interchange of greeting 
between the two Societies. Your Directors were invited by the American 
Bible Society to send a representative to their anniversary at Philadel 
phia, last May. The invitation was gladly accepted, and the Rev. Mr. 
Ross was sent. He was most cordially received, and when visiting the 
great International Building, was much gratified to find the exhibits of 
the American Bible Society, and of our own great parent the British 
and Foreign Bible Society, shown in one case ; a fit emblem of the bond 
which should unite the two nations in this holy work of spreading God s 
Word among the less favoured millions of the earth. He found also, 
that the Pennsylvania Bible Society had a pavilion in the grounds of 
the Exhibition, where, before the close, many copies of the scriptures in 
various tongues, were sold to visitors from all lands. To-night we are 
favoured with the presence of a representative of the American Bible 
Society, in the person of its President, William H. Allen, Esq, LL.D., 
whom the Directors and all members of the society cordially welcome ; 
in the first place in his official capacity, but also as the personal friend 
and connection of the much esteemed first agent of our Society, the late 
Bishop Richardson. He is accompanied by the Secretary of the Penn 
sylvania Bible Society, the Rev. Dr. Torrence, whom the Directors are 
sure will be heartily received by all friends of the cause. The Directors 
believe that these visits will be looked back. to for many years, as occa 
sions of both pleasure and profit. 



18 ANNUAL EEPORT. 

THE BRITISH AND FOREIGN BIBLE SOCIETY. 

We find the Eeport of our great Parent Society written in a very 
grateful strain and full of encouraging facts, as will be seen from the 
following extracts : 

The Committee desire once more to acknowledge, with profound gratitude 
to Him, whose is the silver and gold, the large-hearted liberality by which, 
their efforts have been sustained during another year. 

******** 

It is gratifying to be able to add that many assurances have been received of 
the most cordial approval of the course pursued by your Committee, and not 
a few intimations of an intention to contribute far more liberally than hitherto 
for the furtherance of the Society s work. 

ENGLAND. 

From no part of their large field of labour have the Committee derived 
more satisfaction during the past year than from that which is cultivated at 
home, by their District Secretaries. The reports from every part of the 
country bear strong testimony to the following facts: I. That an intelligent 
knowledge of the Society s principles is more extensively diffused. II. That 
sympathy with it in its grand, yet simple object, and in the difficulties with 
which it has to contend, has been largely increased. III. That not only has 
the liberality of many abounded, but a disposition has been evinced to 
make provision for any extension of work which God in His Providence may 
appoint. 

ISSUES. One of the most hopeful features of the present day is the extent 
to which the Word of God is distributed among all classes of people, both at 
home and abroad. 

From the Depot in Queen Victoria Street : 

Bibles 662,937 

Integral Parts of Old Testament 64,151

Integral Parts of New Testament. 364,609 

1,153,318 



Total , 2,682,185 

The Total Issues of the Society now amount to 76,432,723. 

BIBLE WOMEN. The London Bible and Domestic Female Mission reports 
a larger circulation of the Scriptures, through the instrumentality of the Bible 
women, than in any similar period. The number of copies sold within the 
year has reached a total of 12,269, and realized the sum of 1,659, whilst the 
number of subscribers yet to be supplied amounts to 7,124. 



FRANCE. 



M. Monod continues to prosecute his work with his characteristic care and 
energy, giving much attention to colportage. Large numbers of Testa- 



ANNUAL REPORT. 19 

merits and portions were distributed among the sufferers from the inundations. 
No difficulty was found in inducing the people to accept these ; on the con 
trary, great gratitude was expressed for the kindness shown, and in not a 
few cases the recipients collected what money they could for the purchase of 
a whole Bible. Sixty-two colporteurs had been engaged for a longer or 
shorter period. 

The total sales by colportage and through the depots have amounted to 
71,725 copies, against 64,540 in the preceding year. Those to religious 
societies and other agencies number 18,073, and the free grants, including the 
gifts to sufferers from the floods, have amounted to 5,848, giving a total of 
95,646 copies. 

GERMANY. 

Notwithstanding the vast sums which flowed into the German exchequer 
after the Franco-German war, there had been much commercial depression. 
There had also been not a little religions excitement. Neither of these con 
ditions is favourable to the work in which the Bible Society is engaged, 
though both serve to illustrate the truth which the Bible unfolds. But 
though the power to purchase the Scriptures had been limited, a season of 
adversity may not have been unfavourable to growth in grace, and if the ex 
citement consequent upon legislative action in connection with questions of 
ecclesiastical policy has disturbed for a time the peace of the churches, re 
sults may yet be developed which shall prove "that the Lord hath founded 
Zion, and the poor of His people shall trust in it." 

The circulation of the Scriptures within the limits of the agency had 
reached a total of 297,242 copies, consisting of 88,175 Bibles, 185,193 Testa 
ments, and 23,874 Portions. 

The Eiev. G. P. Davies points out that the decrease in the German issues 
has taken place among Protestant populations only. 

It is pleasant to be able to record that efforts which, for special reasons, had, 
during the year, been concentrated upon work among Roman Catholics, had 
been eminently successful. God has opened doors in n wonderful manner, 
giving facility of access to those long shrouded in the darkness of ignorance 
and superstition, and the same Hand through which entrance has been ob 
tained, has supplied the means for the accomplishment of His purpose. 

AUSTRIA. 

Mr. Millard commences his report with an allusion to the struggles and 
troubles of the past year, which had induced him to anticipate a reduction in 
his sales. Such, however, has not been the case, for though, in some locali 
ties the number does not reach last year s amount, yet taking the agency as 
a whole, there is an increase in the issues of 1,853 copies. These have con 
sisted of 26,682 Bibles, 53,] 84 New Testaments, and 37,444 Portions, or 
117,310 volumes, and if to these are added 21,017 supplied to other agencies, 
a total will be reached of 338,327. 

It is pleasant to find that in a province of Austria so difficult to reach as 
the Tyrol, as many as 4,378 copies of the Scriptures have been distributed. 

Another subject of congratulation to which Mr. Millard alludes has refer 
ence to the character of his colporteurs. He feels it an honour to be 
connected with a body of men who, though of different calibre as regards 
qualifications, are yet, he believes, with one heart and one mind seeking to 
serve God, and are supporting the testimony of the Book they circulate, by 
the example of the lives which they lead. The Bible Society is thus confer 
ring a double benefit upon the people among whom it works. The men and 



20 ANNUAL REPORT. 

the Book speak the same language, witness to the same Truth, and honour 
the same Lord ; and even where the Book is proscribed, and the people ne 
glect it, there is an eloquence in the calm fortitude and meek forbearance of 
the men, which wins its way to hearts hitherto hard, and removes prejudices 
hitherto insuperable. 

POLAND. 

From the Depot at Warsaw a distribution has been made of 18,082 volumes, 
consisting of 4,312 Bibles, 5,860 Testaments, and 7,910 Portions. The use 
of the Russ language is becoming more general, and the Polish Jews have 
also bought largely. The colporteurs have to contend with a good deal of 
bigotry, but, at the same time, no field of labour seems to furnish more 
striking incidents illustrative of the sovereignty of God and the power of 
Divine Truth. 

ITALY. 

The mere mention of Italy in connection with the dissemination of God s 
Truth seems always to give fresh fervour to the prayer of faith, and to fan 
into renewed ardour the flame of holy expectation. Whatever be the motive, 
he who is longing for the extension of the Redeemer s kingdom looks often 
towards Italy for some signs of loyalty to its rightful King, as a prelude te 
the setting up of that kingdom of which there shall be no end. Nor is the 
interest which the Christian takes in this land, so famed for the maturity of 
its art and the refinement of its taste, without a reflex influence upon his own 
soul. Its present condition sounds a warning to which it is well that he 
should give heed. If painting, or statuary, or music or architecture could 
have spiritualized the carnal or vitalized the dead, here would have been 
found the scene of art s triumph and the proof of its power. But if amidst 
all that is magnificent in art, and refined in taste, the tide of sensuality is at 
the flood, and that of morality at the ebb, and the Gospel of the grace of God 
remains unheeded, what hope is there that the cultivation of aesthetics will 
become the channel of light and life to immortal souls. No. The way in 
which God works is altogether different to this. " Thy word is Truth," and 
" the entrance of Thy word giveth light, it giveth understanding to the sim 
ple." Such is God s purpose as regards every land, and in seeking to spread 
the knowledge of God s Truth among the Italians the Society may rely upon 
God s promise for a blessing. 

The condition of Italy during the year had in some respects been favour 
able to the work ; it has been a year of peace and plenty, calling for grati 
tude to Him who crowneth the year with His goodness, and whose paths drop 
fatness. The colporteurs have consequently met with less difficulty in their 
sales through the plea of poverty, though the enemy is never wanting in de 
vices to keep the sinner from the Saviour. Two active colporteurs had 
been employed in Rome, and one in the surrounding country, with a fair 
amount of success. The sales at the Depot in Rome had amounted to 8,352 
copies. Thirty-five colporteurs had been employed throughout the land, and 
by them by far the largest part of the circulation had been effected. The 
total distribution by colportage, from the Depots, and by other means, 
had amounted to 41,194 volumes. This shows a slight increase on the issues 
of the previous year, but falls far short of the requirements of the population 
if they were willing and able to read the Word of God. 

SPAIN. 
Spain seems to be again closing itself against the operations of the Society, 



ANNUAL REPORT. 21 

but it is encouraging to know that, in 1875, the sales amounted to the goodly 
number of 5,518 Bibles, 8,628 Testaments, and 40,999 Portions, being a 
total of 54,545 copies, as against 50,704 in the previous year. In addition to 
this, 2,748 have been distributed as free gifts, and 3,000 have been forwarded 
to London, making the total issues from the Depot at Madrid 60,293. Four 
teen colporteurs have been employed on an average during the whole year, 
who have succeeded in putting into circulation 35,679 copies, consisting of 
3,344 Bibles, 5,071 Testaments, and 27,264 Portions. Such a record of 
work during a period of great trial must be considered most encouraging, and 
be suggestive of gratitude and praise to the Giver of all good, the more so as 
the increase in the circulation has extended not only to the smaller Portions, 
but to Bibles and Testaments. 

NORWAY, SWEDEN, &C. 

In both Norway and Sweden, the circulation had been about the same as 
in the previous year, but in both countries the fruit of former efforts is begin 
ning to appear. In place of the apathy and indifference which prevailed a 
few years ago, there is proof of spiritual life and Christian enterprise, which 
have sprung from the seed of the Word, watered by the dew of the Holy 
Spirit. New churches, home missions, and Gospel tents, are appearing in 
various localities, showing that the work of the evangelist and the colpor 
teur act and re-act upon each other. The Bible creates a need for the mis 
sionary, and the missionary creates a need for the Bible. 

In Belgium and Holland, there had been nothing of special interest 
reported during the year. In Portugal, the work had been going on steadily, 
and the agent wrote very hopefully. The report of the work in Denmark 
was very encouraging ; there had been a large increase in the circulation of 
the Scriptures, and a revival of spiritual life. In Russia, there is much to 
encourage the hope that the circulation of God s Word, throughout its vast 
extent, will be marked by a very rapid growth. In Greece, Dr. Thomson re 
ports that there has arisen a genuine spirit of inquiry about Divine 
Truth, which has been mainly produced by the circulation of the Word of 
God. In Turkey, the operations of the Society had partaken of the general 
depression ; but there had not been wanting interesting and encouraging in 
cidents, some of which were inserted in the RECORDER of last September, and 
some of which seem to show that the Bible Society is the agency best fitted 
to reach the Mahommedans. 

In Syria and Palestine, owing to the severity of the winter and the pre 
valence of cholera, the sales has been somewhat less than in the previous year, 
and considerable difficulties remain, but the Agent is not daunted, and is up 
held by faith in God s promises concerning this interesting country. 

INDIA. 

The reports of the Auxiliaries in India are all cheering. They are con 
tinuing their extensive Colportage work with very important results, and it is 
acknowledged by secular newspapers that the Bible is beginning to have an 
immense influence all over India. Some of the interesting incidents con 
nected with the Society s work in this densely populated country, were 
inserted in the January RECORDER. 

CHINA. 

Colportage, from various causes, has neither been so extensive nor so suc 
cessful as in former years, and yet within the period to which Mr. Wylie s 



22 ANNUAL REPORT. 

report refers, the colporteurs have visited 34 prefectures (each prefecture 
being about the size of an average English county) and 7 departments, and 
have sold the Scriptures in 102 districts, and to the extent of 29,818 copies. 
If, therefore, no superstructure of an imposing character has as yet been raised 
to God s glory, a foundation has nevertheless been laid on which we may 
build securely, and to which we may fairly look for the Divine blessing. 

But Colportage is not now, as it was once, a sufficient test of the progress 
of our work, which is assuming a different aspect through the co-operation of 
missionaries. Colporteurs have in many parts of the empire been the pio 
neers, but now that missions are extending their agency, missionaries are to 
a great extent taking up the work which the Bible Society initiated. They 
itinerate through the country, and besides preaching the Gospel, sow the good 
seed of the Word in a printed form, and by insisting upon the book which 
they distribute being sold and not given, they leave behind them some testi 
mony to God s love whfch is more likely to be lasting in its character than 
their own words, however fitly spoken. Through every agency then, as far 
as they have traced, the issues within the limits of this vast empire have 
amounted to 100,761 volumes. 

JAPAN. 

The Committee have not much to report concerning the progress of Bible 
circulation in Japan during the past year. It is yet a day of small things, 
and though from some points of view the work looks hopeful, the present is 
at best but a seed time, and the husbandman must have long patience. 
Missionaries are still novices in the use arid construction of the language, 
and only feeling their way toward the desired end an idiomatic translation 
of the Scriptures in the vernacular of the country. The four Gospels have 
already been printed by the American Missionaries, and the stock being al 
most exhausted, a new edition was to be printed at the expense of our Parent 
Society. 

SOUTH AMERICA. 

Though the action of the Bible Society with reference to the vast continent 
of South America may appear very insignificant when compared with the 
extent of the field which needs to be cultivated, and the thirsty nature of its 
parched ground, yet it is causing heavenly doctrine to drop as the small rain 
upon the tender herb, and as showers upon the grass. Large communities 
may not be seen arising to cast off the yoke of superstition under which they 
have long groaned, but gradually the colporteur is bearing the message of 
salvation to the dead in sin, and the blessed Book which proclaims liberty to 
the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound, is finding 
its way into many homes. 

AFRICA. 

East Africa. Several letters have been received from the Right Rev. 
Bishop Steere in the course of the year, dated Zanzibar, which are of an en 
couraging character, both as regards the translation of the Scriptures in the 
Swahili language, and the progress of missionary work generally. 

South Africa. The reports of the auxiliaries at Cape Town, Graham Town, 
Natal, &c. , are for the most part encouraging, and very interesting accounts 
of Missionary work in Basutoland have been received. The Sesuto New 
Testament was ready for the press, and more than half the Old Testament 
had been completed. 

West Africa. A very encouraging letter from the Rev. J. Zimmerman tells 



ANNUAL REPORT. 23 

of good work being done by the Rev. F. Ramseyer and others who were re 
leased by the British expedition in 1874, after 4| years captivity in Coomas- 
sie. The letter tells of old Christians who had to use spectacles learning to 
read, and Mr. Z. says the Missionaries are astonished at how the young men, 
w T ho never had a proper teacher before, are at home in their Bible, Mr. 
Zimmerman is himself engaged on the revision of the Ga Bible, which is a 
work of much labour, but which he hopes to see completed. 

Towards the conclusion of their report, the Committee of the Parent 
Society refer to the loud cries for their help, coming from Russia, Persia and 
Japan, which they were prayerfully considering how best to respond to, with 
most advantage to the cause. 

It will be interesting to the friends of the Society to recall the fact that 
during a period of little more than ten years, separate agencies have been 
established in Spain, Portugal, Austria, and South Russia, whilst depots have 
been opened at Madrid, Lisbon, Rome, Moscow, Odessa, Charkoff, and Tiffiis, 
as well as in Vienna, Trieste, Klausenburg, Lemberg, Pesth, Prague, and 
Warsaw ; a sufficient proof, the Committee venture to believe, that the great 
interests which they have been commissioned to watch over have been directed 
and controlled by a wisdom and power superior to their own. 

The survey of their Domestic field was most encouraging, and the Com 
mittee had received most cordial approval of the course they had pursued, 

The Free Income of the Society amounted to 316,802 5s. Od., whilst the 
sum received for Scriptures sold both at home and abroad had risen to 105,- 
410 2d. 3d., which, with 108 Is. 8d. , received on account of a special fund 
for India Colportage, made a total of 222,320 8s. lid. 

The issues for the year were 2,682,185 volumes, and the total issues since 
the formation of the Society, amounted to 76,432,723. 

These are very encouraging figures ; but if any one imagine that therefore 
it is time to rest in this matter, let him ponder thoughtfully a remarkable 
paragraph which we cull from the combined report of the District Secre 
taries : 

" Within the last few months a statement has been made to the effect that 
the population of our globe increases at the rate of about eleven millions annu 
ally, and probably these figures are below the mark. The Scriptures circu 
lated, not only by our Society, but by it and every other similar organization, 
do not amount to more than Jive millions per annum, or not half the yearly 
increase of the world s population. Add to this startling fact that there are 
at least a thousand millions who never yet possessed a copy of the Bible, and 
does not the command of Jehovah, delivered by His servant Moses on the 
shore of the Red Sea, sound forth loudly to His people again to-day, Speak 
unto the children of Israel that they Go forward ? 

This shows how far Britain is from having yet accomplished her work in 
this her most important mission, of giving to earth s millions the Holy Bible 
which has so blessed her own thousands, and if there is work for Britons to 
do, Canadians must and will be found ready for their share of it.

EXTRACTS FROM AGENTS REPORTS. 



REV. CHARLES FISH, Monday, Nov., 1876. " Woodmlle. 27th. Where we 
have an excellent class of officers, had the largest gathering the President said 
he had ever seen at meeting of B. S. A divine influence pervaded, and I 
urged immediate collection and remittance before ] st January, 1877. 

" Eldon, 28th. I reached the Branch as early in the day as possible ; 
could not find from any one that the meeting had been announced at all, 
though I sent notices, as to the others, about two weeks before. 1 pro 
ceeded at once to make my own announcement, visited the Common School, 
addressed scholars, and got all pledged to help me ; sent a man and a boy 
up and down concession lines, and secured a pretty fair congregation, and 
best of all, the presence of the Lord. They pledged themselves to send their 
subscriptions, if possible, before 1st January, 1877. 

" Beaverton, Dec. 1st. The most efficient class of officers 1 have met with 
in all my travels ; the Secretary is almost a host in himself. We had a fine 
audience and a glorious meeting. The several speakers who followed the 
Agent in a few remarks, insisted that the time had come, when, for such a 
noble institution, they must advance upon the former givings, which I have 
no doubt they will do. I have been much encouraged in my visits to the 
several Branches, and have reason to hope that the returns from every 
Branch visited will exceed the returns of last year," 

REV. DR. BELL, Nov. 1876. "On the 21st came to Oranyeville and spent 
some time calling on the office-bearers, &c. The meeting, a very interesting 
one, was held in the Y. M. C. A. Hall ; the attendance consisted very largely 
of ladies, the rain and mud having probably frightened the sterner sex away. 
I was aided by the Presbyterian and Methodist Ministers ; Depository in a 

drug store in excellent condition, well assorted and well kept 

24th Nov., came to Harriston, where we had an excellent and spirited meet 
ing, the Church of England, Methodist and Presbyterian Ministers assisting. 
The prospects of this Branch are very good ; the books in the Depository 
are well assorted, in excellent condition, and beautifully exhibited in a 
jewellery store. . . . 27th. Having gone home on Saturday, 25th, 
I left again early this morning for Teeswater. Here the meeting was held in 
the Town Hall, the two Presbyterian Ministers assisting. The attendance 
was large, and the Society is apparently well managed. The stock in the 
Depository is well assorted and well kept in the show-room of a dry goods 
and millinery store. . . . Jan. 23rd, 1877. Mount Forest. The weather 
was very cold, and in the evening a snow-storm commenced. There were 
several local matters which interfered Avith the attendance at our meeting, 
so that, considering the size of the place, the meeting was small. It was, 
however, interesting, and I think the Society is in the hands of good and 
true men, who will work. They promised to collect and remit within a 
month." 

REV. J. KAY, Oct. and Nov., 1876. " Tilbury East was the next branch 
visited ; found the Reverend Messrs. Forest and Miller with a large and in- 
C 



26 AGENTS KEPORTS. 

telligent audience waiting for me ; this branch is vigorous and successful. 
From thence I took train for Amherstburg, where I was cordially welcomed, 
and hospitably entertained by the very efficient Secretary, Rev. Mr. Smith. 
I remained here over Sabbath, and preached in the morning in the Presbyte 
rian Church, and in the evening in the Methodist Church ; the meeting was, 
they say, excellent for Amherstburg. From thence I proceeded to Colches 
ter, Kingsville, Mersea, and Tilbury West, at each of which places we had 
interesting meetings. On Saturday, 4th November, I returned home quite 
ill from cold and threatened fever, but with the blessing of Providence, I 
was in a few days able to resume my active duties." 

.... REV. R. TORRANCE, Oct. and Nov., 1876. "On the 25th of 
September, I issued a notice to each branch, of the date of my intended 
visit, so that the first on my list had about a month, and the others an in 
creasingly longer period, to make whatever preparation was considered neces 
sary. . . Bervie, Oct. 25th. Next forenoon I visited the Depository and found 
an excellent selection of books on hand, but not in so prominent a place as de 
sirable a remark that will apply to some other branches. In all such cases I 
called attention to the fact, and suggested that the Committee should procure 
a suitable press, set it so as to attract the attention of persons calling, arid get 
a small sign attached to it, or at the door of the above. . . Lucknow. As 
I had to leave by early train the following morning, I made my inspection of 
the Depository before the public meeting. The stock on hand was in good 
condition, and placed in a press in a conspicuous place. The sales last year 
were far in advance of those of the year before, and the Depositaries, Messrs. 
Kerr and McKinnon, evinced the interest they took in the circulation of the 
Scriptures by opening a Sub or Branch Depository in another store, which 
they have out of Lucknow. The Branch in Ainleyville had not done much 
during the past year. There seems to have been neither Secretary, Treasurer, 
nor Depositary appointed at the last meeting, or at least their names were not 
returned to the office in Toronto. If collectors were chosen, they had not 
acted, and it came to the knowledge of your Agent that one friend there, 
who had long been a supporter of the Bible Society, had remitted a liberal 
contribution directly to Toronto, not knowing anyone in the place through 
whom it could be sent. Under the circumstances it was plainly my duty to 
do what lay in my power to awaken dormant energies, and give as suitable 
advice as I could, and this I attempted to do, and in doing it, received valu 
able aid from Mr. Ferguson and others. Contrary to expectation, the public 
meeting was a tolerably fair one. The Rev. Mr. Jones, President, occupied 
the chair. The Rev. Mr. Armstrong of the Methodist Church, and Mr. 
Ferguson, in whose Church the meeting was held, were also present and took 
part in the proceedings. At the close, Office-bearers were chosen, and a Com 
mittee appointed, embracing, I believe, members from the different religious 
denominations in the place. As Mr. Jones had expressed an earnest wish to 
be released of the Presidency, Mr. Ferguson was called to that position. 
After all public business had been finished, the new President immediately 
called a meeting of the Committee, and required of them, in the first place, 
to become members of the Society by becoming subscribers to its funds. He 
set the example himself, and he was cheerfully and promptly followed by all 
present, so that a considerable amount was realized on the spot. Some 
other matter was transacted, when a sub-committee was chosen to examine 
the stock and see what was required to meet the wants of the locality, to re 
port at an early day; there is every prospect that the Society has now entered 
upon a new career which it will pursue with zeal. Its office-bearers are ener 
getic men, and they will leaven others with the same spirit. Our expecta-

tions will be greatly disappointed if Ainleyville does not soon forward to 
you a sum far above any sent on former occasions. We trust a suggestion 
that was made will be carried out, namely, to order a considerable mimber 
of RECORDERS and distribute them among the families in the bounds. May 

the little one soon become a thousand January, 1877. After 

remaining here an hour or so, I left for Pine River ; part of the way 1 got a 
ride, but had to walk the rest of the distance. Calling on the Reverend Mr. 
Graham, he extended to me a most hearty and hospitable welcome. In 
the evening a meeting was held in his church. Only a few persons were pre 
sent, but they were unanimous in the opinion that a branch should be 
formed, as there was a considerable tract in the neighbourhood in which the 
operations could be carried on, and from which contributions might be col 
lected for the good cause. Mr. Graham felt very much the want of such an 
organization, as there had been one in the place from which he came to Pine 
River, which had received his careful support, in whose prosperity he rejoiced, 
and through whose publications, as received from the head office, he had 
learned from time to time how the work was going on at home and abroad. 
The people present were of the same spirit with himself, and all the steps 
were taken to form a branch with Office-bearers and Committee, who will 
map out the district, appoint Collectors, and adopt other means to render the 

branch a successful, although it may be but a smaftl one It is 

only just to state that in every place the people extended to me a most cor 
dial reception, and all appeared to feel the importance of Bible circulation ; 
their interest will become deeper as they get more fully informed as to what 
the Bible has done, and the necessities still existing for combined, vigorous, 
prayerful and liberal efforts in sending it abroad, that the ends of the earth 
may be enabled to hear of Him who is the true God and Eternal Life. I was 
particular in each place to speak of the unsectarian catholic character of the 
Bible Society, and to press the importance of having all religious denomina 
tions represented among its Office-bearers and Committee. All seemed to feel 
the propriety of such a course. 

REV. J. JT. RICE, Oct., Nov., and January, 1876-7. "At Dorchester 
Station meeting, Nov. 6th, a fair gathering assembled on the most stormy 
evening of last autumn, thus evidencing the deep interest taken in the Branch 
by its friends ; the meeting was in the Presbyterian Church, the Pastor of 
which, together with the resident C. Methodist minister was present, and the 
full sympathy of these brethren accounted for the good gathering. Under such 
unpropitious circumstances the meeting was an unexpectedly good one, and 
the Branch is fortunate in securing the further service of its valuable official 
staff. .... 

London, North-west. Meeting was held in the C. Methodist Church, 
Vanneck ; it was a good meeting, worthy of the excellent men in charge of it. 
The venerable Mr. Bell, for thirty years the efficient Secretary of th$ Bible 
Society, under different forms and names, in this neighbourhood, at length 
succumbing to infirmities was necessitated to resign, and a suitable record was 
made in the Branch minute book of the feeling of the Society towards this 
old and valuable servant. Mr. Robson, his successor, is a most worthy man, 
and will doubtless prove a very efficient officer. Rev. Mr. Thynne, Presby 
terian, rendered good service at this most successful meeting 

Delaware Branch held its meeting, 23rd January, in the Town Hall, the 
President in the chair ; the weather was severe, but the attendance was on the 
whole good. The resident Presbyterian Minister gave an excellent speech, 
and the choir of the Episcopalian Church, with the clergyman s lady as organ 
ist, furnished music. Dr. Francis, for several years the efficient Secretary 
of this Branch, retired, and was succeeded jby Aaron Vail, Esq. The President, 



28 AGENTS REPORTS. 

Mr. Hughson, is evidently the right man for the place. This Branch is in hands 

that will ensure for it continued success Of the twelve Branches 

confided to me for visitation the above are all I could do anything with. The 
Branch at St. John s is considered by its Secretary out of existence, and he 
would not announce for a meeting, intimating that all attempts to hold 
meetings of late years had signally failed. 

Nissowri, Harrietsville, and Siloam Branches. Although I addressed the 
several officers of each as designated in the Report, I could get no word from 
them and I assume no such Branches exist. I purpose at my earliest conveni- 
enceand at my own cost visiting these localities, and having done so, I will com 
municate to you the result of my inquiry on the spot. In conclusion T beg 
to assure you that I found in all the localities visited, many warm friends of 
the Bible Society, and, as a rule, the Branch Offices are very worthily filled, 
and I trust the labours of my brethren in the work of visitation may have 
been more abundantly successful and not less agreeable than have been my 
own. " 

REV. JAMES GRANT, Feb. 7th, 1877. I have had very considerable trouble 
in getting the different Branches allotted to me to decide on a night for the 
Annual Meeting of the Bible Society 

" Holbrook. This Brsftich I visited on Monday, January 22nd, but the meet 
ing was poorly attended, owing to bad roads ; those who were present ho.w- 
ever, were very enthusiastic and were glad to have your agent call upon them, 
They said they would do their utmost to increase their subscription to the 
Society this year, I am positive they will ; very little was done at the Deposi 
tory, but I strongly urged them to develop its usefulness as much as possible. 
The collectors were being sent out, and the officers assured me that the money 
would be sent on to Toronto as soon as brought in 

REV. ALEX. YOUNG, 1876. "On receiving the appointment of Agent of 
the Upper Canada Bible Society, I sent out the usual notices to the Branches 
I was expected to visit. Percy. The Officers were re-elected, and Collectors 
appointed to go to work immediately after the meeting. There is a good deal 
of life manifest here, the Officers and Committee are earnest and energetic, 
and I have no doubt will do their utmost to increase the funds of the Society. 
The collection at the meeting amounted to $6.37. This with other funds in 
the Trensurer s hands will be forwarded along with the subscriptions to To- 
tonto. . . On Sunday forenoon, November 26th, I preached at Eddystone, 
in the Christian Church, and in the evening in the Baptist Church, at Wicklow 
three miles distant, both these places within the territory of the Vernonville 
Branch. The day was stormy, but the attendance was fair in both places ; the 
work of the Society was explained, and the collection of $2.83 handed to the 
Secretary of the Vernonville Branch to be reckoned as part of its funds. . 
Cold&rings. Collectors were appointed and intended to have their work done 
on or before the 29th December, it was also resolved that the whole amount of 
their subscriptions be given as a free contribution to the Upper Canada Bible 
Society Collection $4.40. 

" Vernonville. This Branch is only in its infancy, but promises well. The 
Rev. J. W. Smith, Presbyterian, came from Grafton to assist us, and spoke 
warmly on behalf of the Society. After the services of the Sunday previous 
the Collectors had commenced their work, but had not completed ; the returns, 
however, so far, although little more than half done, were already in ex 
cess of last year. Sales for the year, $8.05 ; stock on hand $7.10 ; collections 
taken on the Sunday previous, and at the meeting, amounted to $4.48. The 
Collectors were urged to complete their work without delay. The Officers 
were appointed, and intended to forward the funds to Toronto, which tl:ey 



AGENTS REPORTS. 29 

promised to do On the whole, with only two or three exceptions, 

the meetings were well attended, the practical interest taken in the Society s 
work encouraging, and the people seem to appreciate more and more the ob 
ject it has in view, as they learn to love and study the Book of God for them 
selves ; they are becoming more convinced by comparing the lands where it is 
circulated, and read, and believed, with those who have it not, that no coun 
try can prosper without it. Let the labourers strengthen each others hands, 
take new courage, and work on till our Dominion be truly a land of Bibles, 
and God alone have all the glory." 

Rev. S. KAPPBLE, 1876-7." On the 30th Oct. , I visited Hamburg. From 
several unforeseen occurrences the meeting was almost a failure, and 1 almost 
decided to re-visit that Branch and arrange for another meeting, but after I 
addressed the few present, mostly the officers and committee, also the German 
evangelical minister, and saw the earnestness of spirit and the hearty will 
of those present, I felt that the good work will not suffer so much as I feared 
at first. The officers and collectors were appointed, and with hearty encourage 
ment I left the work in the hands of the officers of the branch, with the hope 
that they may be more successful with the meeting next year. The Deposi 
tory is in a very good place, and well kept I left Crediton on 

the 22nd of November, for Tavistock, where a meeting was announced for 
me that evening, but this time I nearly overreached my ambition, as I had 
no idea of the distance, nor of the state of the roads. I was very near dis 
appointing the meeting, but by the help of God, and the holding out of my 
horse, I reached Tavistock, although in the dark night, but yet early enough 
for the meeting. Hungry and c6ld, and much covered with mud, I was 
kindly welcomed by the evangelical minister of this place, and entertained 
for the night. I found a good congregation, mostly Germans, with a few 
English people, the result you know already. With proper care I hope to 
see this a very prosperous and useful branch .... On the llth Janu 
ary, 1877, I attended the public meeting in Guelph ; the friends say that this 
was the best attended meeting they had had for a long time. Everything con 
nected with this branch seems to be encouraging. The ministers, the officers 
anl committee all seem to be the best of men in their places ; the financial 
result for the year is cause for joy and thankfulness. ... At Berlin, 
the Lutheran, Evangelical, Presbyterian, United Brethren, and Methodist 
ministers were present . The meeting was much larger than last year, the 
sales in the depository have increased wonderfully last year, the free contri 
butions are in advance, thank God for this success. I addressed the meeting 
in both languages, and all the ministers supported me .... 1 hope my 
poor but hearty efforts to serve the interest of the Society may prove to be 
blessed from the Lord. I have been encouraged in my work by the success 
I have witnessed, and also by the kindness of the friends of the Bible cause. 
I have not preached on Sunday at any branch. I have laboured in the time 
spent as much as possible, and at every branch I did my best to rouse the 
people to activity and liberality in the Bible cause. 

REV. WM. F.CLARKE. 1876, Dec. 14th. Selkirk. Another small meeting 
in the Baptist Church ; little interest is felt in the Bible cause here ; only about 
$9 were obtained last year by the collectors, but the work was not thoroughly 
done the village and neighbourhood well canvassed ought to give a respect 
able contribution. The depository appears to be well kept, and is the only 
healthy feature of this branch; $15.07 proceeds of sales were on hand, and 
were paid to the Agent on purchase account. The Rev. Messrs. Fearnside 
(Baptist) and Thomson (Primitive Methodist), assisted at the meeting. 

" Dunnville, Dec. 15th. A wild, cold, wintry night, consequently there

was but a small meeting in the Methodist Church ; this Branch has sustained 
a great loss in the death of its President, the late Wm. Cook, Esq., who took a 
warm interest in Bible work, and spent a large amount of time in promoting 
the interests of the Branch. M. Gash, Esq. , formerly Vice-President, was 
appointed President." 

REV. GEORGE BURSON/ 1877, April 5th. "1 sent cards to the twelve 
branches in the beginning of October last, inquiring of them the most 
convenient time for their meetings. I received replies from all except 
Thorold, which, I learn from the General Secretary, has decided to^do with 
out a visit. 

Niagara. This Branch is in the hands of interested and competent officers, 
the meetings are very well attended, and, judging from the very admirable 
report read by the Secretary, I think they will be in advance of last year. 

" Drummondville. This Branch is in admirable order and doing a good 
work. We had an interesting meeting, and I expect their proceeds will be 
up to the past year. Clifton is doing well, interest increasing. It cannot be 
otherwise, with such officers and ministers hearty in its support." 



EXTRACTS FROM COLPORTEURS REPORTS- 

MR. JOHN LOWRY, Oct. 1876. " I have travelled 357 miles, 160 by rail, 
and walked 197, which is the most that I have walked in one month. I went 
one day to Newtonbrook and back, made forty visits and sold twenty copies 
of the Scriptures.. I lefo home in the morning, before eight o clock. 1 visited 
all the houses along the Kingston road on each side to Norway. I have visited 
Don Mount, Danford road, Chester Village, Todmorden, and the 2nd con 
cession, up Yonge Street as far as York Mills. I have sold ninety Bibles and 
one hundred and eleven Testaments, exclusive of three Bibles and four Testa 
ments with Psalms. I have found six families without Bibles. I gave away 
four, one a Reference Bible, and also a seventy cent Bible to a poor widow 

woman Had it not been for the scarcity of money, I could have 

sold a great number more copies. I have travelled more in this month than 
I could continue to do ; the roads being good, I was anxious to do all I could 
on the outskirts of the city and villages not far distant, as on account of 
family affliction, I was not able to do any work in the summer. I promised 
to call with several that were not prepared to buy in November. This month 
was the most delightful and encouraging in the Master s work. May the 
Lord give me more of the Spirit of my Divine Master in pointing sinners to 
the Lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world. .... 

" November. Altogether these two months, the Lord has opened up a large 
and an effectual door for the circulation of His own ^word. The following 
is a summary of my labours for the past two months miles travelled, 755 ; 
visits, two thousand and fifty ; Scriptures sold, 453 ; Scriptures with Psalms, 
thirty-nine ; sold to Romanists eight copies Scriptures, given ten copies." 

MR. WM. McPnAiL, May 1876." I could not venture too far from home 
on account of the precarious state of my complaint, the doctor advising me 
not to venture too far from home, lest I should get wet and the sciatica re 
turn again. I came over to the township again on the fifteenth, and worked 
hard. The demand for Bibles and Testaments is good, but money is very 



COLPORTEURS REPORTS. 31 

scarce September. I found the people showing great earnest 
ness in buying Bibles and Testaments, but the dulness felt all over is seen in 
the buying of Bibles, as well as in other business. Very few houses showed 
apathy or want of interest in the Bible Society. 

" October. There is a real demand for Bibles, but there is no prospect for 
getting money. There are many who expressed their approbation and thanks 
to the Society for affording them a chance to know not only of the cheapness 
of the Bibles and Testaments, but especially of the motives of the Society, of 
which they were quite ignorant. Many asked how much per cent. I was al 
lowed on the sale. I always carry the invoice, and if any one asks deduction 
in the price, I show them the invoice and explain the motives of the Society. 
I do all I can to show them what the Society is doing, not only at home, 
but throughout the whole world." 

MR. WM. STRAIN, June, 1876. " Having been obliged by delicate health 
to remain in Flesherton, in the county of Grey, I was able to start again on 
Thursday, 1st of June, and arrived in Paisley the next day, and found my 
stock of books in good order, under the care of a Christian gentleman who 
made no charge for storage. I received a kind invitation from persons in the 
township of Eldersley, in which Paisley stands. I complied with thei;; 
wishes, as they wanted books, and afterwards I have laboured in parts of 
Bruce township, and have found the people kind. Owing to the scarcity of 
money at this season I made as many sales as I could have reasonably ex 
pected. The people are chiefly Highland Scotch, and much the larger por 
tions of my sales were Bibles and Testaments with Psalms. I got a good 
serviceable horse and buggy, at a reasonable rate. I have been to see Rev. 
Dr Bell, of Walkerton. He is a worthy gentleman. He took much interest 
in my work, and thinks that Bruce, Huron and Kincardine will require my 
services. . . . August. The same day, when returning to my field of 

labour, I was overtaken with a heavy shower of rain at Patrick K s gate, 

and was obliged to take shelter in his house. He asked me if I believed the 
Pope to be Anti-Christ, but I thought it best to give an evasive answer. J 
said we were both big-feeling Irishmen, and if we entered on that subject we 
would be sure to use words and arguments that would rouse bitter resent 
ment on both sides, and I thought it best not to commence. Patrick s wife 
agreed that I was right. He then said, Well, you are a very forgiving man, 
to shelter in my house after the manner in which 1 spoke to you at the fence 
in the early part of the day. I said that was nothing, and we parted good 
friends. His sons got out my horse, fixed me up, opened the gate, and I 
went on my way rejoicing, thinking of the trials and opposition the Blessed 
Master and Saint Paul had to endure. . . . September. At the com 
mencement I had got through the townships of Kincardine and Huron, and 
other parts about Lucknow, but I had recollected that when in Brant and 
Bruce many families urged me to visit them after harvest, when they ex 
pected to have the means of buying my books. Accordingly, I moved to 
Walkerton, and had a word with Rev. Dr. Bell, who advised me to try, he 
remarking there is nothing like trying. I went to work and have met with 
the usual kind reception, and have done reasonably well, all things considered, 
as the crops have not turned out as well as expected in the earlier part of the 
summer." 

REV. R. STEPHENSON, May, 1876. " On May first I was again to work, but 
on the fourth was too unwell to travel. I tried again on the fifth and sixth, 
but the weather being unfavourable I felt worse on the eighth ; had to cease 
on account of sickness, and did not feel able to recommence until the fif 
teenth June. During the month scarce anything took place to 



32 COLPORTEURS REPORTS. 

make many remarks about ; found some kind friends and but few enemies to 
myself or the work in which I was engaged in. Many said to me " you are 
engaged in a good work." .... September. The people generally 
gave me a kind reception, and in many instances seemed anxious to obtain 
the Word of God. We found four families without the Bible. One woman 
said she always intended to get one, and your agent had the pleasure of sup 
plying her with perhaps the first one she ever owned. Another said she had 
been married nearly four years and never had a Bible, but had given an order 
for a large Family Bible. It is a pity that some who possess Family Bibles do 
not use them oftener. I saw often the Family Bible brought out of its hiding- 
place and shown to me with pride, but seldom used or even another used 
in its place. We think that your Society is doing a good work in supplying 
every-day Bibles. A Roman Catholic woman would, I think, have purchased 
a Testament, but was dissuaded by a neighbour declaring it is not the right 
kind for you. Another case was that of a family who owned about half of a 
Bible (Brevier type), and we, as your agent, presented them with one for 
their children, which seemed to be thankfully received. They also promised 
that if we return, and they have means to purchase one with a large type, 
they will do so. It is pleasing to notice how gladly the children welcome our 
visits. Some of them will rim to bring out their long hoarded store of cop 
pers, and tender them for payment of a Testament when it is perhaps not 
more than half the price of one, then their mothers come to their help and 
the price is made up, and their joy is great. We have enjoyed being em 
ployed by your excellent Society in the noble work of spreading God s Truth, 
but in consequence of a severe cold caught some time since, and subsequent 
weakness, we shall be compelled to rest for a time, but if in the future we are 
able we shall be very happy to serve your Society and the cause of Truth 
again. Hoping that God s richest blessing may rest more abundantly upon 
the Society and its agents, we are yours faithfully.* 

MR. EDWARD ROTHWELL, July, 1876. " The fall I had was a bad one, but 
I am improving every day and will be on the road again next Monday .... 
October. Many expressed great desire to buy but lacked the means, conse 
quently the amount of gratis distribution exceeds that of any previous month. 
1 only gave under the prescribed circumstances. I still meet the cry. Why 
not go to the back counties. I meet it by showing how much destitution ex 
ists in the old townships, even round the large towns. Who would search 
out these cases of want and supply them if the Society did not ? I am satis 
fied that nobody would, nor would one out of ten of the parties avail them 
selves of the benefit through the depositories. I should say from what I see, 
that a visit once in five or six years will always be required, chiefly in the 
interest of the poor. The poor you have always with you, is as true now 
as in our Lord s ministry, and nowhere is the truth more palpable than in 
the richest districts. I felt an honest pride in being able to send so much 
last month, and have often wished that my initiatory year had been one of 
prosperity that I might do more for the Society, but I feel, if anything, a 
greater satisfaction in giving to an old man or woman living by the roadside 
and having only a small smoke-dimmed copy of the Bible, to be able to give 
such a clear, bright copy. To see how eagerly they open, how they read, to 
hear their blessings on me and the Society. This, I must say, goes far to 
reconcile me to the hardships of the work. May God give me strength to. 
bear and ability to do the work committed to me. . . . October. i have 
met many cases of destitution, as shown in my report, and many more not 
shown, who had only a mere excuse, as a small Testament; most of those bought 
Bibles. One woman had not had a Bible for thirteen years. Another, married 



COLPORTEURS REPORTS. 88 

six years, had never had a Bible but one. Another, four, bought a small one, 
and but for want of cash, I could sell four to one. I have given, where the 
circumstances warranted my doing so. The small Testaments were mostly 
to orphan children. Three boys bought little Testaments, a fourth stood by 
quite forlorn-looking. What is the matter, boy 1 Is he not your son ? He 
is a poor orphan. I keep him. He must have" one ; the Blessed Saviour 
provided for such as he." 

MR. R. McTNTYRE, April, 1876. " They were greatly in favour of the 
Bible Society, and one man will be very happy to do what he can to help on 
the work of the Bible Society ; also, Rev. Mr. Beattie thought he could sell 
quite a number of Bibles, and will write to Mr. Baldwin about it. You will 
see that I have not sold many of the Society Bibles, people did not want 
t lem without the metrical psalms. I have sold, as you will see, $50 worth of 
Tract Society books. When I told Mr. Mclntosh, the school Inspector, that 
I had sold close on 700 Bibles and Testaments, he did not think I could have 
sold near so many. He is a warm friend to the Bible Society, and entertains 
me in his house often. You would be astonished to see the many warm 
friends you have got in North Hastings. Had it not been for the bad times 
I could have sold quite a number more. . . January, 18 7 7. Many ask 
where does the money go to. I sit down and tell them how the Bible Society 
sends men out to the heathen lands to spread the blessed word of God, and 
also the work that is carried on at home (in Canada). I must say that there 
are a great many warm-hearted people in the above township for the Bible 
Society. I would sell more, but the people have not much money. 

MR. JOHN MOODIE, Oct. 1876. " Dr. Brewster, of Ridgeway Branch, was 
very kind to me, the resident minister as well, Mr. Mooney. Hard times 
and bad roads will account for the meagre sales, also I could not get forward 
in time to make up my report, owing to the rain, raining almost every day. 
November. I am ashamed of this report, but I find it almost 
impossible to get orders for your 70c. Bible, on account of want of money, far 
less daily sales." 

MR. PHILIP SPARLING, Feb. and March, 1877. "I find a good deal of dif 
ficulty to sell in consequence of hard times. Money in those back settle 
ments is very scarce. 1 found an instance or two where in my judgment it 
was needful to make a reduction; the people are willing to buy if they had 
money.

ANNIVERSARY MEETING. 



ANNIVERSARY MEETING. 

The thirty-seventh anniversary meeting of the Upper Canada Bible Society 
took place on Wednesday evening, 2nd May, in the Metropolitan Church, 
Rev. Dr. Ryerson in the chair. There was a large audience, and great 
interest was manifested in the proceedings. 

The meeting was opened by the singing of the hymn, " The heavens de 
clare Thy glory, Lord," followed by reading of Scripture and prayer by the 
Rev. W. H. Briggs. 

The Chairman, in his introductory remarks, said that he was deeply sensi 
ble of the honour conferred upon him by the Board of the Upper Canada 
Bible Society in requesting him to preside in the absence of the honourable 
and honoured President, the Hon. G. W. Allan, to whose introductory and 
expository remarks at the commencement of each anniversary meeting they 
had listened with so much edification and so much delight. The senior 
Vice-President, Dean Grasett, was also absent, whose illness on his recent 
voyage to England excited so much anxiety, and whose recovery on his 
arrival in England, after his life had been despaired of, afforded so great an 
amount of thankfulness. He felt a great deal of melancholy in rising to ad 
dress them in the recollection that one of the Vice-Presidents, a near relative <>f 
the Very Rev. Dean Grasett, and whose labours and influence had ever been 
identified with the Society, had been called from the scene of labour to the 
scene of reward. He referred to the Rev. Canon Baldwin. He hoped 
they would be stimulated to imitate the labour of love of their departed 
friend. He came before them not as a new advocate of the Bible Society. 
He happened the other day to come across an old speech, the only speech 
which he ever wrote before deliverance. Its endorsement was as follows : 
" My first speech at a Bible Society meeting on a vote of thanks to the 
Hon. J. H. Dunn, at the anniversary meeting in May, 1830." During 
nearly half a century he had been identified with the work of the Bible 
Society, and had witnessed its operations in this country, and to some 
extent in the old country, with deep interest, great delight, and fervent 
gratitude. During the past year he had made his last trip to Europe, and 
arriving there the first week in June and leaving the first week in February, 
he had an opportunity during the eight months of making some observations 
on the operation and extending influence of Bible distribution and Bible 
reading. During none of his eight previous visits had he ever seen so 
many Bibles for sale in London, or in the churches, or so much Bible reading 
in the congregations of those churches. Never had he seen such indications 
of the vigour and earnestness, and fervent piety and aggressiveness of the 
Protestants generally in England as during his recent visit. He believed 
that at no period of English History had there been so much piety, so much 
extensive benevolence, so much earnest aggression upon the errors and vices 
of the day, so much exertion in the distribution of God s Holy Word, so 
much faithfulness in the ministry of the Word, as at this present hour. He 
believed that Protestant England was stronger and more earnest and more 
extensive in all its benevolent institutions and religious labours than ever 
before. He rejoiced that in this country the operations of the Bible Society, 
instead of meeting with any check or with any degree of decline, still pros 
pered in the work of distributing the Word of God throughout the land. It 
was not the duty or the province of the chairman of a meeting to make what 
was called a speech, and he had sought for many years in his little addresses 
at public meetings to merit the blessing invoked by the woman who, on the 
conclusion of a meeting in England, said, " God bless the man who made the. 



84 ANNIVERSARY MEETING. 

short speech." He had no doubt that the speakers who were to follow would 
expound the principles and claims of this Society in a way he would not hope 
to rival. 

Mr. Baldwin, the Permanent Secretary, then moved the adoption of the 
report, which will be found elsewhere. 

Dr. Geikie seconded the motion, which was carried. 

Mr C. A. Morse moved the following resolution : " That thanks be 
given to the officers, committees, and collectors of the various branches 
throughout the country, to whose zeal and energy the Society is so much 
indebted, and that the following gentlemen be officers and directors for the 
ensuing year. (See names, page 5.) 

Rev. Dr. Robb seconded the resolution, which was carried. 

W. H. Allen, LL.D., President of the American Bible Society, then ad 
dressed the meeting. 

Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Upper Canada Bible Society. 

When the Managers of the American Bible Society tendered me the hon 
our of presenting their salutations to your Society, I requested them to send 
you a good platform speaker, in preference to one who is no orator ; one 
who, like Moses, is slow of speech and of a slow tongue, however unlike him 
in other respects. I was the more desirous that such an one should be se 
lected, that we might reciprocate the compliment which you paid us last year 
by sending us as your representative a very eloquent and brilliant speaker, 
to whom we listened with delight. But I was informed that your secretary 
had done me the honour to suggest my name as one that would be acceptable 
to your Society. I know no reason for so kind a suggestion, unless it be 
that some forty years ago I invaded your city and carried off a subject of Her 
Majesty the Queen, and made her a sovereign in my own country. I am, 
therefore, not only your brother in Bible-work, but, in some sense, your bro 
ther-in-law. 

I am happy to say, however, that the Pennsylvania Bible Society has 
remedied the mistake of the Managers of the Parent Society, by associating 
with me its worthy Secretary, a gentleman eloquent of speech. 

If, then, you will accept the plain words of one who does not blow a silver 
trumpet, I have the pleasure to tender to you the fraternal greetings of the 
American Bible Society a Society second only, in age and the magnitude of 
its work, to the British and Foreign Bible Society. We salute you as breth 
ren beloved co-workers with us in distributing the Word of God among 
men ; labouring, as we labour, for human emancipation, and civilization, and 
salvation ; prosecuting with equal zeal, and as your report proves, with equal 
success, an enterprise unsurpassed in grandeur by any philanthropic effort of 
this nineteenth century. 

At the recent Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, where the Dominion 
of Canada made exhibits which gratified all visitors, and surprised many who 
had been previously uninformed of the 1 productions and wealth of your coun 
try ; at that Exposition the British and Foreign united with the American 
Bible Society, and exhibited the Bible, or parts of the Bible, in two hundred 
languages. 

Who can estimate the brain-work and hand- work of which that exhibit was 
the exponent ? What time and study in the mastery of those two hundred 
languages preparatory to the work of translation ! What thorough scholar 
ship in making the translations ! What anxiety to render the exact meaning 
of the Word of God ! What critical scrutiny in the revision ! What care 
fulness in the correction of the proof sheets ! What fear to add to the Holy 
Book, or to subtract from it a single thought or shade of thought, lest God 
.should " take away their part out of the book of life ! " And when the 



ANNIVERSARY MEETING. 85 

finished volume in each language and dialect, the work of ten, fifteen, or 
twenty years, was sent forth for distribution, what earnest prayers that God 
would bless the effort to send li^ht to the dark places of the earth, and that 
his servants who go forth weeping, bearing precious seed, may come again 
with rejoicing, bringing their sheaves with them. 

In this great enterprise the British and Foreign Society has taken the lead, 
and its younger sister, the American, has followed in the same path. Both 
have one object, one method, a similar system of auxiliaries and branches, 
and similar agencies for distribution at home and abroad ; and I may add, 
both are determined to work on until every family on earth shall be supplied 
with a Bible, and shall be able to read it in their native tongue. 

It is noteworthy that these two Societies print and distribute more Bibles 
every three years than the world contained at the beginni]?-* of the present 
century. And recently, as you know, the gates of countr/ 3 which for ages 
had been closed and barred against the Bible, have swui/ wide open to re 
ceive it. Wherever commerce has found or made a way,/ ne Bible has gone, 
the missionary has gone, the schoolmaster has gone, t> j printing press has 
gone, and the seeds of a better civilization have been sown beside all waters. 

These societies do not limit their operations by geographical boundaries. 
Their field is the world. History informs us that the Pope divided all newly 
discovered countries between Spain and Portugal by a certain meridian. But 
the English and Dutch had no very profound respect for the title which His 
Holiness had given. They disputed his right to convey the world in fee 
simple. But these societies, with their thousands of auxiliaries, are dividing 
the nations between them by warrant of Him who said " Go ye into all the 
world and preach the gospel to every creature. " Experience has proved that 
the printed Word of God is the most effective of preachers. It is not only 
the armory from which the missionary draws his choicest weapons, it is the 
most successful of missionaries. It is itself the gospel .of our Lord Jesus 
Christ. No burden of commentaries, no learned exegesis can make the ten 
commandments or the sermon on the mount one whit plainer to the common 
mind than the simple text itself. 

Let me say further, that the Bible is not only the best of Gospel teachers to 
instruct men in the way of salvation, it is also the best of moral teachers. 
True, the book is not a systematic treatise on moral philosophy, but it tells. 
men what they ought to do, and what they ought not to do, in their inter 
course with one another. It commands what is right and forbids what is 
wrong, with divine authority. The Greek moralists set in order all the 
principles of their science, and illustrated them in language of Attic beauty ; 
but they failed to check the progress of vice. They could instruct men how 
they ought to live, but could not persuade them to live as they ought. They 
held no warrant signed and sealed in the chancery of heaven. They offered 
no motives, either of hope of good, or fear of ill in the future life, which 
were powerful enough to check avarice, ambition, and lust. Like Macbeth, 
they who wished to sin, would " jump the life to come," if they could but 
escape the judgment here, " on this bank and shoal of time." The Bible, 
and the Bible only, confronts the temptation to sin with the retributions of 
Jehovah s law, and these reach forward to the eternal world. 

Some twelve or fifteen years ago we had on the other side of your boundary 
what our newspapers allude to as " the late unpleasantness." It is true that 
many unpleasant things happened at that time in the States. To my unmili- 
tary mind it was unpleasant to see a million men doing their utmost to kill 
one another. I never could highly appreciate the minstrel who consoled the 
dying Highland Chieftain by singing of his martial Clan Alpine, 

Twere worth ten years of peaceful life 
One glance at their array." 



86 ANNIVERSARY MEETING. 

But all was not unpleasantness. Along a line of a thousand miles no chal 
lenge of the sleepless cordon of sentinels repelled the incursions of the Am 
erican Bible Society. With impartial hand that Society distributed the Word 
of God to Confederate and Union soldiers alike. And on a score of battle 
fields many a dying soldier of both parties clasped the precious gift to his 
heart while darkness was shrouding his eyes. In war as in peace, the So 
ciety knew no North, no South, no foe. It recognized both armies as com 
posed of men created in the image of God, having similar hopes and fears, 
redeemed with the same blood, and pressing forward to the same eternity. 
The love of God was stronger than the hatred of men, and its " still small 
voice," unheard in the rush and din of battle, whispered to the hearts of the 
combatants in hours of silent reflection, " Ye are brethren, love one 
another." " If a man love not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he 
love God whom he hath not seen." 

Pardon me, my friends, I am giving our Bible Society credit which belongs 
of right to the Bible. It was not the Society which had power to pass un 
challenged through hostile lines ; it was the Bible. The Bible carried the 
agents through, not the agents the Bible. Such is its power to-day, and such 
has been its power through the ages. It has conquered men who waged war 
against one another, and conquered men who waged war against it. 

Some years ago literary scepticism tried to prove that no such city as an - 
cient Troy ever existed ; that there never was an angry Achilles, nor an 
arrogant Agamemnon, nor a wily Ulysses. Even " the blind old man of Scio s 
rocky isle " was not an individual ; he was multiform. But the discoveries 
of Schliemann have battered down all such arguments with the solid shot of 
facts. In like manner religious scepticism has assailed the Bible in w r hole and 
in parts with all sorts of weapons drawn from the armories of literature and 
science. The subtleties of wit and logic, the brutalities of ignorance, and the 
polished shafts of learning have been hurled against it, but it has parried all 
blows and stands to-day unscathed in its divine integrity. Modern researches 
in Egypt, and Palestine, and o.i the sites of Babylon and Nineveh, have de 
monstrated the authenticity of much of the Old Testament history, and shed 
new light on some obscure passages of the Sacred Record. 

Now, latest of all, our modern science, whether called cosmologies!, or 
geological, or biological, ^or anthropological, or any other names, till the Greek 
Lexicon is exhausted, enters the anti-biblical lists, marshals its array of fossil 
monsters, and sounds its notes of triumph. Mr., Huxley makes covert sneers 
at the Bible over the shoulders of John Milton, before an intelligent audience, 
and with subtle irony admires the marvellous flexibility of the Hebrew lan 
guage, which admits such attempts as commentators have made to reconcile 
the cosmogony of the book of Genesis with discoveries in geology ; and his 
intelligent audience laughed and applauded . 

Professor Haekel, the German apostle of evolution, alleges that in all ages 
they who adhere to what he calls the monistic theory of the universe, that 
is, that the universe is one, pervaded by one force by which all phenomena 
are effects of causes acting under one universal law, are the only progressive 
and reformatory part of mankind. On the contrary, those who hold to the 
dualistic theory, that is, God and nature God working in and through mat 
ter with an intelligent purpose and for a definite end, are the conservative, 
or rather the obstructive part of mankind, incapable of reform or progress. 

I have no quarrel with Darwin s " law of natural selection," nor with 
Spencer s " survival of the fittest," nor with Huxley s and Haekel s theory 
of evolution so far as these have truth in them ; and like most theories they 
doiibtless have some truth in them. But when Huxley declares that the evi 
dence in favour of his theory is demonstrative, and thai: evolution rests on 



ANNIVERSARY MEETING. 87 

as secure a basis of facts as the Copernican system ; and when Haekel dis 
courses of law without a lawgiver, and ignores the existence of final causes, 
and makes some undefinable force in matter his efficient cause of all vege 
table and animal forms, we are reminded of the poet Thomson s " critic fly 
whose feeble ray scarce spreads an inch around " giving its opinion of " a 
full-proportioned dome on swelling columns heaved," and explaining how the 
dome raised itself up according to law, but without a lawgiver, by a certain 
polarity of its atoms, and for no purpose, use, or end, unless it were for the 
critic fly to speculate upon. 

No, no, when we admit a universal law we must accept a universal Law 
giver ; one who sees the end from the beginning. Then the monism of Haeke- 
liaii skepticism becomes the dualism of Christian faith. Call this Lawgiver 
by whatever name you please, he is one and the same, the SUPREME. Among 
the Hindoos he was the Underived, the Being without a beginning, the First 
Life ; among the Persians the First Light ; among the Hebrews, the Self -ex 
istent, the I AM ; among the Greeks, the First Intelligence. It was reserved 
for the Anglo-Saxon tongue to give a more endearing name to the Supreme 
Being, the Good, the First Good. He is what all these terms imply, and 
more, for " who by searching can find out God 1 Who can find out the Al 
mighty to perfection ? " He is the First Life and the giver of life ; the First 
Light and the dispenser of light ; the self -existent source of all being ; the 
First Intelligence, author of all intellect and reason, of whom wisdom was 
born ; and best name of all, the Good, expressing the Christian belief that 
God is love, the well-spring of love and blessing, who has revealed to us his 
will and our duty in this sacred volume, who has made it possible to restore 
in us the divine image in which man was created, but which sin has defaced, 
and who cheers us in the scenes of earthly trial and conflict, with the full 
assurance that this corruptible shall put on incorruption, and this mortal 
shall put on immortality. " For God so loved the world, that he gave his 
only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him might not perish, but have 
everlasting life." 

Rev. W. H. Tilley, rector of the Memorial Church, London, Ont. , said : 

After listening to the interesting speech of our dear friend and brother 
from the other side of the lines, I am sure that this meeting will welcome a 
resolution which takes up the noble society of which he is the honored Pre 
sident, and after making it join hands with its older and its younger sister, 
thanks God for all that He has done through their united instrumentality. 
I have therefore much pleasure in moving the following resolution " That 
this meeting rejoices and desires to thank God for all that He has done 
through the British and Foreign Bible Society, the American Bible Society, 
and our own Society, in spreading His Holy Scriptures. At the same time 
they desire to remember the immense number of mankind still without the 
life-giving Word, and they trust that Canadians will show themselves ready 
to do their share in the work of disseminating the Bible, which work God 
appears so largely to have committed to the British and American people." 

You all remember, dear friends, the deep excitement that pervaded this 
country during the winter of 1861, when an untoward incident threatened to 
disturb the peace and harmony which always should exist between the 
British and American people. I was then living on the seaboard and saw 
the different regiments arrive, intended for the defence of Canada. There 
were the choicest household troops, regiments of guards, batteries of artil 
lery, and veteran corps that had won laurels in almost every quarter of the 
globe. But you also remember that with these old historic troops there was 
also a young and modern corps called the Military Train, to which was com 
mitted an important branch of the service. 



8S ANNIVERSARY MEETING. 

Now, Mr. Chairman, the Society under whose auspices we are met this 
evening has not the divine origin, the apostolic commission, the grand asso 
ciations of the Church of Christ. Strictly speaking, it cannot claim the 
memories of Wycliff, or Tyndal, or Cranmer, to whom more than to any 
others the readers of the English Bible are indebted But when, about the 
beginning of the present century, English-speaking Christians began to realize 
God s purpose in establishing the Christian Church, that it was to be the little 
leaven leavening the whole lump, when they began to organize in determined 
war against the powers of darkness and error, then the British and Foreign 
Bible Society had its birth. It was natural for those who believed the Word 
of God to be the sword of the Spirit and mighty through God to the pulling 
down of strongholds on principles of military economy and efficiency it was 
natural not to burden infant missionary associations with the task of trans 
lating and printing and circulating the Word, but that an army corps should 
be formed to whom this work should be committed. 

I should like, Mr. Chairman, to have gathered some statistics as to how 
far all English-speaking Protestant Missions are indebted for the supply of 
the Word of the Spirit to the three societies mentioned in the resolution. 
This has been beyond my reach, but this much T have been able to discover, 
that the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, formed at the beginning 
of the last century and carrying on missionary operations in twenty-five 
languages and dialects, depends on the B. & F. B. S. for seventeen, and the 
Church Missionary Society, dating from the commencement of the present 
century, and using forty different languages, is indebted to the Society in no 
less than thirty-six cases. Allowing for those languages which are common 
to both, I find that the two great Missionary Societies of the Church of Eng 
land, carrying on missionary operations in fifty-five languages, look, in the 
performance of their work, to this Society for translations of the Holy 
Scriptures in no less than forty-six different tongues ; and, as a clergyman of 
that church, I am thankful that I am permitted to stand here and express 
our great obligations, and I take it that if each of the brethren upon this 
platform, who may have information to which I have not access, could speak 
concerning the operations of their respective denominations, it would be 
found that at least a similar proportion, or three-fourths of all the missionary 
work, depends for its supply of the written Word upon the societies whose 
names are coupled together in this resolution. When, therefore, we are 
asked to thank God for what he has done through this instrumentality, we 
are nob only to think of the cheapness of Bibles and Testaments among our 
selves, though that is much, nor yet merely of work done in circulating by 
means of colport viirs, though that is more. We may go forth to India with 
Carey, and Marshman, and Duff ; we may sail through the isles of the Pacific 
with Williams and Patteson ; we may watch the work of Samuel Marsden in 
New Zealand, or Golgiby in Ceylon, or Hunt and his associates in Fiji ; we 
may follow the steps of Moffat or Crowther in Africa. Aye, as Canadians 
looking at work done in our own Dominion, we may go out to the plains of 
the Saskatchewan where McDougall fought and fell, or to the banks of the 
McKenzie where Bishop Bompas toils in his self-made exile, or to the shores 
of the Arctic Sea where McDonald watches over his Tukudh flock, or to the 
coasts of Hudson Bay where Kirkby is sowing the seed, and in each case we 
may feel that the Bible Society has a share in the grand ingathering of souls. 

But this is only one aspect of the Society s work. Last Autumn at a mis 
sionary meeting in the City of Philadelphia, I had the pleasure 
of meeting some representatives of the " Church of Jesus " in Mexico. So 
little is known of the reformation in that land, that I may be permitted here 
briefly to refer to it. With the Spanish conqueror came the Roman priest 



ANNIVERSARY MEETING. 89 

and the Spanish inquisitor. The religion of the country speedily changed, 
but with the tact which Rome so often displays, the change for the poor 
Mexican was made as easy as possible. In many cases it consisted in sub 
stituting the image of the Virgin for some Aztec deity which had stood in 
the temple niche before, and for three centuries spiritual darkness prevailed. 
By and bye new political ideas were borrowed from the United States, and 
when an attempt was made to seat Maximillian upon the throne, advantage 
was taken, and the Scriptures in the Spanish tongue were introduced. They 
fell into the hands of the priests, and a work like that in the convent at 
Erfurth was the result. The first teachers of the new faith were priests who 
had renounced the old, and the Church of Jesus in Mexico to-day, with its 
martyrs, its fifty-seven congregations, its noble old church of San Jose de 
Gracia (now a Protestant place ,of worship) its theological school, (formerly the 
Convent of San Antonio Abad) is an instance, and a remarkable one, of what 
God is pleased to do by means of the circulation of His Word. 

I confess, Mr. Chairman, that I have no sympathy with those who refuse 
to assist Bible Societies because the Church must go first, or with those who 
decline to send the missionary because they trust to the circulation of the 
word. We must send the living voice, for Christ has said, preach the Gos 
pel to every creature. We must give the copy of the written revelation, for 
the same high authority has said search the scriptures. What God has 
joined together, let not man put asunder. Sometimes it pleases the Almighty 
to plant by means of the ministry, and water by a later gift of the Bible, as in 
the cases of the Apostolical Churches founded while the canon of the New 
Testament was being completed. Sometimes it pleases God to lay the foun 
dation, as in Mexico, by the simple reading of His Book, and to build up by 
the later teaching of the ministry. In the one case or in the other, if the 
work is to be permanent, there must be access to the oracles in the vernacular 
of the people, and if we believe that missionary enterprises are still in their 
infancy, if we feel that the souls already won are only the heavy drops that 
precede the refreshing shower, we must see to it that this important branch of 
the Church s service is still more efficiently equipped for its work. 

The Resolution, which speaks of the duty of Canadians assisting in this effort,, 
alludes to the vast influence of the British and American people. I presume 
that there is no one here who regards that influence as accidental. If God a 
hand is visible anywhere it is in history. I want you to notice it at one particu 
lar time. How was it that during the first century the Gospel of Christ met with 
such marvellous success. Because (we speak it reverently) God had made great 
preparations for its extension. He chose but one particular nation to whom 
He revealed Himself, and when the time came for spreading the monotheistic 
idea which He had communicated to them, they were scattered among the 
idolatrous nations, carrying with them His written word. Then, a few cen 
turies before the Christian era there came the glory of the r ,Grecian monarchy ; 
only for a day it lasted, but leaving in its decay the rich and widespread lan 
guage in which for all time the Gospel was to be written, and in which through 
much of Europe, Asia, and Africa, it could be preached and understood. 
There was one element more in God s fulness of times. If the Babel voices 
were in a measure stilled before the almost universal tongue of Greece, so, 
when the Roman Empire arose, the multitude of petty rival nations became 
blended into one great civil power, and through the world thus united and 
made accessible, by means of a widespread language, to a people among 
whom had been planted the fundamental thought of all true religion the 
knowledge of one true God the Gospel of Christ began its triumphs. Is it 
for no purpose that God seems to be combining now the same three elements 
of influence. To the Anglo-Saxon is committed the political power of the 
G

present century. The United States and Canada have to themselves almost 
the whole of this northern continent, and from a Christian standpoint they 
only represent one power ; for, if we never felt it before, the presence of our 
friends here this evening shows us that the Niagara River does not sever 
Christian sympathy. England stands in the forefront of European nations ; 
her Queen is the Empress of 180,000,000 heathen and Mohammedan subjects, 
and beyond this, Sir Charles Dilke has taught us to look for a Greater 
Britain. What a marvellous power is this ? With an organization like 
the British and Foreign Bible Society, the question of language is not as 
important as it was 1,800 years ago, but surely it is a noticeable thing that in 
so many countries the language of these British and American people is spoken 
and understood. And then lastly, but by no means the least important is 
the fact that what the Jews were before Christ as the conservators of a pure 
religion for the world, this mighty and widespread people to a great extent is 
now. To them are committed the oracles of God. Among them are the 
strongest and purest branches of the Church of Christ. From them have 
gone forth the most determined and successful missionary enterprises. It is 
a solemn thing to have entrusted to us the responsibility of worldly power 
and spiritual knowledge, and we may be sure that if we do not use them for 
God s glory, great will be our loss and curse. I have no need to enlarge 
upon this, but will simply tell you what I once heard from an old Christian 
Indian, and which I have ever since thought of as illustrating the economy, 
the political wisdom, of Christian Missions. 

Some four years ago, a deputation from the Protestant Episcopal Church 
in the United States, was appointed to inspect the Indian Mission in the 
west. They happened to pass through London while our Synod was in ses 
sion, and were present at a social meeting held during the week. We had 
among our number three clergymen Indians, who, with their lay delegates, 
made up a band of nearly a dozen. With their old love of speech-making 
they proposed an address, and the old man who was chosen spokesman, 
tendered most affectionately their greetings to their red brethren in the west. 
He then very touchingly alluded to the tales of bloodshed that were coming 
from the far west, and compared the struggles of years on that side of the 
border with the peace and harmony on Canadian soil. Then turning to the 
leading member of the deputation, he said, " Ah, sir, you did not send the 
Indian the Gospel early enough. " Some time after, Mr. Chairman, I was 
looking over some old Bible Society records, and I found that during the 
first year of the Society s existence, when her income amounted to only a 
few hundred pounds, a grant had been made towards translating the Gospel 
into the language of the Six Nation Indians on the Grand River, in Upper 
Canada. That tribe was largely represented at the time this incident took 
place, and I felt that the old Indian was right, it pays socially and naturally 
to scatter the Word. If you, dear friends, are of the same mind, let us from 
feelings of political wisdom, as well as from loyalty to Christ, thank God for 
what He has been pleased to do, and at the same time seek to be used in 
even greater triumphs of love. 

Mr. W. Kennedy seconded the motion, which was carried. 
A collection was then taken up, and the hymn " Let everlasting glories 
crown," was sung. 

Rev. Dr. Torrance then moved the following resolution : " That believing 
the Holy Scriptures to be still, as in the past, God s chief means of making 
men wise unto salvation, and believing also that Bible Societies are pre-emi 
nently adapted to bring all Christians of every nation into closer bonds of 
charity, and make them more successful in spreading the Word of God, we 
hereby pledge ourselves as a meeting to more earnest support of these 



ANNIVERSARY MEETING. 91 

Societies." After some introductory remarks he referred to Dr. Allen s 
connection with Girard College, and to the fact that notwithstanding 
the efforts made at the inception of that institution by the apostles of 
" modern culture " to exclude the Bible from its teachings, that Book was 
now an accepted text book within its walls. The devotees of modern science 
asked that the Bible should be cast aside, but they gave them no other 
standard of religion or morals in its place nothing but a set of dry scientific 
theories, which were but husks to the hungry soul. The ever-changing 
beauties of the seasons never raised the soul of the infidel " from nature up 
to nature s God ; " they never aroused in him those thoughts which enable 
the Christian to see in all the glories of nature the hand of a Divine Father. 
Nor was the death-bed of the atheist calculated to produce a feeling of admi 
ration for his creed, as it was a leap into the dark, uncheered by the bright 
hopes" that accompanied the Christian in his passage across the river of death. 
He proceeded to give some statistics showing the immense progress made by 
the various Bible Societies of the world in distributing the Scriptures among 
the nations of the earth, and remarked that there now were few languages or 
dialect in which the Bible was not printed. If the Czar of Russia were to 
make Constantinople his capital to-day, he would find there a Bible Society, 
and a Bible House erected by the concentrated efforts of the British and 
American Societies, and aided by the contributions of Christians generally. 
He referred also to the unsuccessful attempts made at the Centennial Exhi 
bition to keep the grounds and buildings open to the public on the Sabbath 
day, and said that these efforts had been made by the scepticism of the 
United States. He also dwelt upon the far-reaching effects of the display of 
Bibles at the Centennial Exhibition, remarking that already it had led to 
inquiries from many parts of the globe. He concluded by extending to the 
Upper Canada Bible Society the cordial greetings of the American body. 

Rev. W. W. Ross seconded the motion, which was carried. 

Hon. W. McMaster, seconded by Dr. Hodgins, moved, " That the hearty 
thanks of this meeting be presented to the Rev. Alex. Topp, D.D. and the 
trustees of Knox Church, for its use on Sabbath evening last, and to the 
Very Rev. Principal Caven, D.D., for the instructive sermon which he 
preached in the interests of the Society on that occasion. " Carried, 

Rev. J. M. Cameron, seconded by Vice-Chancellor Blake, moved " That the 
hearty thanks of this meeting be presented to the pastor and trustees of this 
Church for its use on the present occasion, and to the organist and choir for 
their valuable services in connection with this annual meeting." Carried. 

The proceedings closed with the doxology and benediction.
