laid down a much better plan of relief than others. The operations of the soup kitchens are on such a stupendous scale, that they cannot inquire into particulars. They cannot look for those who cannot come to them. These must be left to those who have time at their disposal, and whose sympathies lead them to the performance of so disagreeable task.” And, we may add, that this is what all the agents are doing.

We have to record, with unfeigned sorrow, the death of Mrs. Hardcastle, of Waterford, who died of typhus fever, caught in visiting the starving poor. She has fallen a victim to her benevolence, having daily for the last two months engaged in this work. Our friends will deeply sympathise with her esteemed husband and family, who have been bereaved of a wife and mother of no common excellence and piety.

OF THE

BAPTIST HOME MISSIONARY SOCIETY.

The ANNUAL MEETING of the Society will be held at FINSBURY CHAPEL on Monday evening the 26th of April. The chair will be taken precisely at half past six, by JEREMIAN COIMAN, Esq., Mayor of Norwich.

The government scheme of Education recently laid before Parliament is one of ibe most dangerous measures which protestant dissenters have ever been called to oppose. Carried into operation (as it assuredly will be unless opposed with the atmost earnestness and in every way constitutionally permissible) in the course of a few years it will destroy not only the day and Sunday-schools connected with home missionary stations, but many of the stations themselves. The Committee feel, therefore, that it is incomparably more important this quarter to supply the means of intelligent and earnest opposition to the government measure than to report the labours of the agents. They apprehend that they cannot better carry out their convictions than by republishing the paper of the “ Central Committee” of opposition,-a document singularly clear, comprehensive, and forcible. It will thus get into the hands of many thousands who will not otherwise hare an opportunity of becoming sufficiently informed on the subject.
