[blocks in formation]

In entering on a new year, we invite our readers to glance, for a moment, at the condition of our missions. There are under the supervision of the Board of Managers of the Baptist General Convention, the following missionary stations.

NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS.

The gospel has been preached, the word of God circulated, and schools maintained among nine Indian tribes,—the Ojibwas, Ottawas, Tonawandas, Shawanoes, Stockbridges, Delawares, Cherokees, Creeks, and Choctaws.

At the different stations among these tribes there are fourteen male, and eighteen female missionaries, and ten native assistants. Most of these stations have enjoyed, during the year, tokens of the divine favor.

EUROPE.

In France there are seven stations embracing thirteen churches. The Board have sustained at these stations during the past year one missionary and twelve native preachers and assistants. Though “the direct opposition of the authorities in prosecuting and fining some, and in forbidding others to assemble, in numbers: more than twenty, in one time and place, the calumnious efforts of papists, specially; of the clergy, and the efforts of Protestant evangelists and colporteurs,” are obstacles by which the work is retarded ; progress has, nevertheless, been made. This is specially the case as to the principles of religious liberty.

In Germany and Denmark there are ten stations, including thsee in Prussid and one in Hanover ; and twelve preachers and assistants, all natives of the country. The members of these churches are not only exhibiting great Christian fortitude and meekness under the trials to which they are subject in consequence of following out the dictates of their consciences, but are showing a commendable zeal in promoting a pure Christianity among the people of their respective countries. Ours is a religion alike of principle and feeling, and our brethren in Europe are, many of them, a striking exemplification of both. The baptisms in connexion with these churches during the past conventional year were seventy-four.

In Greece, where are two male and four female missionaries, nothing has occurred to interrupt the silent and unobtrusive influence of faithful labor in teaching and preaching. VOL. XXV.

1

ATRICA. “ Cast down, bat not destroyed,” is the condition of the mission in Africa, and the spirit of the apostle, whose words we have quoted, is the spirit breathed by the little band stroggling on that benighted shore. The death of the beloved Crocker overwhelmed them for a moment, but they have girded themselves again to the work. There would be every thing to encourage the Board and the missionaries in that field, were there more laborers and more means to support them.

There are two male (one a man of color) and two female missionaries, together with two pative assistants.

ASIA. The only station in Hindostan ander the supervision of this Board, is among tħe Teloogoos.

Two missionaries, with their wives, aided by three native assistants, are almost all, if not the only missionaries laboring exclusively for the conversion of a people numbering 8,000,000 or 10,000,000. Though ill health has afficted, and, doubtless, in some degree for the past year enfeebled the mission, and on account of its recent establishment but few have embraced the gospel, yet she field has constantly presented itself not only ripe and ready for the sickle, but open, and inviting the reapes.

In Burmah there are nineteen male (including Mr. Kincaid, in this country,) and twenty female missionaries, and fifty-one native assistants, two of whom are ordained ministers, and many other faithful and successful preachers of the ansearchable riches of Christ to their heather countrymen. The past year bas been rich in blessings to Burmah. Though the death of Mr. Comstock has left a wide and promising field just beginning to yield a precious harvest, unoccupied, and without the prospect of being oecupied at present, yet, in looking over the results of the whole year throughout that interesting portion of the beathen world, we would set up our Ebenezer, and say, “ Hitherto hath the Lord helped us.”

There are in Assam four missionaries, with their wives, who direct also the labors of four natire assistants. Although few of the natives of Assam have, as yet, embraced the gospel, there has been a perceptible progress in the translation and printing of the scriptures, and in the department of education. There is nothing in this mission to discourage the missionaries, or its supporters, but the want of laborers. What are four men for a million and a half of heathen!

Four brethrer, with their wives, and three native assistants, are laboring in Siam, the reesseggers of mercy to 4,500,000 of people. But as one of these brethren is a printer, and anptver a machinist, most of the direct missionary work devolves on two

a missionaries, - ne "being devoted to the Siamese, and the other to emigrant Chinese. It has been with the missionaries a year of uninterrupted labor, and of reasonable success. A good foundation is laid. Continued progress is made in the translation of the scriptures into Siamese. In the year 1842–3, more than 17,000 copies of important portions of the word of God, and other valuable works, were printed at the mission press, and this department of labor is, at this time, being extended.

In the empire of China, are five male (including two missionary physicians) and three female missionaries. The missionaries enjoy constant opportunities of preaching to large and attentive congregations. There is generally witnessed a spirit of inquiry, and several have become hopefully pious. In none of the fields, except the Cherokees and the Karens, have the results of missionary efforts been so palpable as among the Chinese. This is equally true of the Chinese in their own country and of those in Siam.
