upon Him, who careth for us, and loadeth us daily with his benefits. May he incline our hearts to stay his pleasure, to go at his bidding, and wherever we are, to live devoted to his glory ! Unbelief is ready to exclaim, “all these things are against us;” but “shall not the Judge of all the earth do right !” We hoped that the happy period had at length arrived, when the “fountain of life” should be opened to the poor Bataks, and that many would soon experience its renovating influence. 3ut his thoughts are not as our thoughts. Our confidence in the final accomplishment of the word of his promise, however, remains unshaken. Though his ways are mysterious, his intentions are merciful ; and in his own good way and time, he will gather from among the Bataks, too, a people to be formed for his praise.

In reference to the church under his care at Kingston, Mr. Coultart remarks, that “a great work appears to be going on still.” He anticipates another addition of members shortly, and states his conviction, that “the knowledge of God's word is increasing, and (what is stillmore leasing) the genuine use of that knowedge, and its best influences, are becoming obvious.” But while, in this important colony, the fields are evidently “ white unto the harvest,” it pleases God, in his mysterious and holy providence, to lessen the number of those “few” labourers who had entered upon it. Mr. Coultart informs us of the death of no less than four of our Moravian friends on one estate on the southern side of the island; two of whom, Mr. and Mrs. Hague, had landed at Kingston only about a fortnight before ' Mr. Hague had preached for Mr. Coultart, and appeared, by his piety and zeal, to be admirably adapted for the work assigned him. We are sorry to add, that the health of Mrs. Coultart has again sensibly declined, and that Mr. C. fears he shall be under the

painsul necessity of returning with her to England.—Mr. Burchell is greatly encouraged by the interest that has been awakened at Montego Bay by his labours, and the still increasing number of his congregation. So large a concourse assembled on the Sabbath previous to the date of his letter (August 28,) that the premises were seriously endangered by the pressure, and the people were obliged to consult their safety by a precipitate flight. After mentioning this circumstance, Mr. B. subjoins: “I do most sincerely wish our Christian friends in England could but witness our interest. ing and crowded meetings; it would produce much greater effect than any thing I can say, and I feel confident of three things. 1. They would be so rejoiced, that they would call upon their souls, and all around them, to bless God for the success with which he has crowned their efforts; and would resolve to devote themselves with renewed zeal to the great cause. 2. They would be immediately convinced, from the appearance of the people, of their absolute inability to provide themselves with a suitable house for worship; and, 3. They would instantly resolve a house should be provided, sufficiently large to accommodate the anxious crowd—would contribute their utmost themselves, and exert their influence among their friends to raise the requisite sum.” Anxious to encourage the Mission here to the utmost of their power, the Committee have apprized Mr. B. of their willingness to deviate from their ordinary course, by appropriating a considerable sum, the amount of which has been specified, to the purpose he so powerfully urges; but, as that sum falls far short of what will bo necessary, it is feared the object cannot be attained, unless some generous individuals shall be disposed to add to their customary benefactions to the Society, a specific donation towards it. Communications on this subject will be thankfully received at the Mission House, No. 6, Fen-court, Fenchurch-street. At Anotta Bay, Mr. Phillips has been restored to such a degree of health, as to be enabled to resume his labours, though all the symptoms attending his illness have not yet been removed. He notices, with gratitude, that the church had been mercifully kept together during the suspension of his labours among them ; and that, amidst all the disadvantages of his affliction, its members, during the past year of its existence, had risen from forty to one hundred, and that he expected shortly to baptize fifty more.

HONDURAS.

A Letter from Mr. Bourn, dated Belize, September 21, has lately been received. He had been seriously unwell, but was then bet. ter. A young man from England, who resided in his house, had lately

fallen a victim to the prevailing fever of the country; but Mr. Bourn hopes that he was a subject of Divine grace. Several persons were expected soon to join the church, and “on the whole,” remarks Mr. B. “things are going on as well as when I wrote last.”
