VII.— Notes of tye Montb, and Extracts.

[ocr errors]

1. DEPARTURE OF MISSIONARIES. The Rev. JAMES SADLER, Mrs. Sadler, and child, returning to Amoy, and Miss TRAVERS, bound for HANKOW, China, embarked at Liverpool for Hong Kong per steamer Diomed, November 4th.

2. ORDINATION OF A MISSIONARY TO INDIA. Mr. WILLIAM W. STEPHENSON, of Lancashire Independent College, having been appointed by the Directors to the Society's station at NUNDIAL, South India, was on Tuesday, the 7th of November, in Rusholme-road Congregational Church, Manchester, ordained as one of its missionaries. The Rev. W. G. Mawbey, of Cuddapah, South India, described the field of labour. The Rev. Professor Scott, B.A., LL.B., delivered the charge. Other portions of the service were conducted by the following ministers:-Revs. A. Thomson, M.A., of Manchester, H. Oliver, B.A., of Newport, and J. R. Bailey, of Carlisle.

3. THE JOHN WILLIAMS, Under date Sydney, September 1st, 1876, the Rov. J. P. Sunderland writes :_"The John Williams came into port yesterday morning. Considering the amount of work done, we have reason to be thankful she got back in such good time. She has brought the Rov. S. J. and Mrs. WHITMEE and six children, Rov. H. ROYLE, Mrs. ROYLE, and daughter, Rev. S. H. DAVIES, and Mrs. JONES. I am happy to report the vessel in good order.” The John Williams again left Sydney, bound for New Guinea, on the 13th of September, having on board the Rov. S. ELLA, together with supplies and stores for that mission.

4. CENTRAL AFRICA-MISSIONS AND COMMERCE. The following gratifying testimony to the material results of Christian missions in the interior of Africa is borne by HENRY TAYLOR, Esq., a merchant residing at the Society's station of Molepolole in the Matebele country. Addressing the Directors under date August 9th, 1876, Mr. Taylor writes :“The traders of this part of the country desire me to convey to the Society their very best wishes for the success of the new mission to the Lake Tanganyika. They trust that by God's help the greatest blessing will attend the labour of the few noble men who have so readily come forward to open up a fresh field of missionary labour. Those unacquainted with the history of South Africa but little know the past amount of commerce that has in all cases followed the steps of missionary labour. Some fifty years ago but little was known north of the Vaal River. I do not think I am far wrong if I say the trade of the country now is little short of £250,000 per annum, the diamond fields excluded. For these great results the London Mission have much to be proud ; such names as Livingstone and Moffat will live in ages to come. Were I to mention the strides the Zambesi trado has taken of late years I should scarce be believed. It has been hoped by many that the Society will get try and establish a mission in the Bahrutsi Valley, where a large field would be open to them. Now that the country is so well known, there should be no fear that the fatal results that attended the first mission would again occur."

5. AN EXAMPLE WORTHY OF IMITATION. An esteemed and zealous honorary Secretary of one of the Society's largest Midland County Auxiliaries, anxious to promote the New Year's Offering scheme, and to increase the circulation of our Periodicals, has issued amongst his friends the following circular:

LONDON MISSIONARY SOCIETY. DEAR SIR, I enclose circular and cards in reference to the new year's offering for 1877, and shall be glad to supply you with as many as you are likely to require for Sunday-school and families connected with your chapel, if you will let me know the number. It is very important that a record should be kept of parties to whom collecting cards are issued, and that their return be duly looked after, and the amounts remitted to the Treasurer of the Auxiliary.

May I ask whether the Monthly Chronicle, the Juvenile Missionary Magazine, or the Quarterly Paper, or any of them, are circulated in your school ? The Chronicle, published at 1d. monthly, can be supplied at a cost of only 7s. per 100; the Juvenile Magazine, published at įd. monthly, at 3s. per 100 ; and the Quarterly gratuitously. It is a common practice, I believe, to supply the Juvenile Magazine as a gift every month to scholars subscribing one halfpenny per week, and pay the cost of 3s. per 100 out of the subscription.

It is very desirable that the information contained in those periodicals should be communicated more extensively than is usual to both juveniles and adults. And your aid in accomplishing as large a distribution as possible in your school during the coming year will be highly esteemed.

If you will inform me what number you will take for your school on the above terms, I will arrange for their regular supply.

Hoping soon to hear from you on both the above subjects, I am, dear Sir, &c.
