3. DEATH OF REV. HENRY NISBET, LL.D., OF SAMOA. When describing last morth the visit paid by DR. NISBET to the out-stations of the Samoan mission, the Directors little anticipated that it would soon devolve upon them to announce the removal of our brother from his most useful sphere of labour. Equally sudden and unexpected was that removal to his family and the missionary brethren around him. The Rev. S. J. WHITMEE, under date May 11th, writes :—“To-day a painful duty falls to my lot. I have to announce the death of Dr. NISBET, which took place on the 9th inst., at the age of fiftyeight. Although I was present with our dear brother when he died, and committed his body to the tomb yesterday, I can scarcely yet bring myself to feel that he has really gone from us.” Dr. NISBET left England in the month of August, 1840, so that at the date of his death he had entered upon the thirtysixth year of his missionary life. In July, 1841, our brother left Sydney in the Camden, for SAMOA, and resided on the island of UPOLU for nearly twelve months. In the following year he again embarked with Dr. TURNER in the Camden for their appointed destination in the island of TANNA, in the New HEBRIDES. Shortly after their settlement on that island, the threatening and hostile proceedings of its barbarous inhabitants rendered it prudent to seek refugo by flight. Messrs. Nisbet and Turner thereupon escaped in an American vessel, and arrived at Samoa in February, 1843. Since the above period our brother's labours have been carried on in the Samoan group, but at different islands, for many years, and at the time of his death he was joint tutor with the Rev. Dr. Turner in the MALUA Institution. During his visit to this country in the year 1870 the degree of LL.D. was conferred upon Mr. Nisbet by the University of Glasgow. The following incidents connected with his last illness and death have been furnished by Mr. Whitmeo :“I saw Dr. Nisbet on the evening of the 5th of May, when he complained of having a cold. The doctor pronounced his disease to be a sharp attack of influenza, but did not anticipate any serious consequences. A change, however, came over him ; his symptoms became worse, and after eleven A.M. on May 9th he was not again sensible. The funeral took place at ten o'clock on the morning of the 10th of May. A service was held in the Institution class-room which was crowded with the students, their wives, the native pastors, and others

[ocr errors]

from the neighbourhood. Mr. Royle, of Aitutaki, and Dr. G. A. Turner were presert. We sang the Samoan version of For ever with the Lord, after which I read some appropriate passages of Scripture, and the native pastor Tonga offered a most affecting prayer. We then went to the grave, where I conducted a short service.” The loss to the Society and the Samoan mission in particular by the removal of Dr. Nisbet is very great. From his length of service, his largo experience, and eminont adaptation to his appointed work, he was looked upon as one of the leaders in the mission alike by his brethren and by the native churches. To his widow, his colleagues, and the members of the native community whom he so well and so faithfully served, the Directors tender their most affectionate sympathy.

4. DEATH OF MRS, THOMSON, OF NEYOOR. Our brother, Dr. T. S. THOMsox, Superintendent of the South Travancore Medical Mission, has, in the mysterious providence of God, been called thus early in his missionary career to mourn the removal of his devoted wife. Threo and a half years since Mrs. Thomson left our shores for India with bright hopes of lengthened service in the Lord's vineyard. She at once entered heartily into the work of female education, and was instrumental in commencing schools for caste girls in the villages surrounding the NEYOOR mission station. To those schools Mrs. Thomson devoted earnest effort and fervent prayer, the fruit of which still remains. Her last thoughts bad reference to the carrying forward of these labours. Mrs. THOMSON died on Monday, the 12th of June.
