Three of the estahlishmernts for printing
-those at Sudiya, Tavoy, anil Bankok"
have been founded recently. The first
primting executed at Bangkok, was in time
aututn of 1,36. Abotit 600,000 8vo. pares
-were printed prior to thae close of time fol
lowving Mamy. At the Tavoy press, which

-?-eccipts, $44,340 71.
Womis of the Board.-The missions to
Siam, the Chinese, the Teh>ogoos, and to
several ladiant tribes, not to omentiion others
that have regnestedl aid, are in urgent ineed
of an immledinte reinfatreent of misiona -
rhes. Seem nI canmdidates for mnissionary
service have been approved biy time Boardl,
and, if adequate funtds were providead, wo'ukd
-be sent forth to their waork helbmre the close
of time current year. Requer-ts have also
been madle for four nddaitiontal printing es
taliishiments. ThIe Board have not the
meatns to meet these claims. Their funds
arc exrhaust'ed. If mnot replenisherd utMEDt
Ar.r.Y, they wtill he constrainmed to consult.
not f'or thme enhargcemt of the missionis. but
for time least disastrous method of their re
--duction. The inquiry must be, WVhat mis
sions, shall lie closed, w'hat misionarmmies
shall he cnlled home ? The Gaid of Mis
sions, time Grat IIendh of theo Church, wvho
laid down his life for his pieople. graciously
mtterpose, give to all oinr associatiotns and
chmurchecs a larger measure of hmis spirit, amid
constronm them bmy his love to give even ?as
they have received!
The above view exhiits an atnounat of'
labor umnd stteccss, thmat ecoucmmrages the fur
itmer proscention aof the benevolemnt designs
so fatvorabhly carriod otn..with an energy, the
anost unmantd. Bt the fundas of the Board

Most fligh, the ayes of time Board are torn
aed with anxiot' emqtiry? A.sd shall- they
be turned ii Va in? Will any. who love tha
Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity, indulgo the N
thought of withholding his contributions e
from this noble cause? Will lie not rather Pl
increase the amount or his honerneiions for
its advancement? What thonih the pecu- I<
ninry relations of the people lie emborrnsed
and in some cases severe! Is this an excuse
for God's people to withhold the breath of
life from those that are ready to perish for
lack of knowled1ge? If retrenehiment he T
entered into, let it first reduce the needlless
expenditure in furniture and dress mid other
modes of living, which injure their thought
less owners, whilst they diminish the
streams of beneficence. Let christians de
ny themselves many of tne indulgencies
and luxuries of life, whilst the cause of God
deninuds the aidls,which the mniey expend- fo
ed in these, wotild so naterially aflird to the h
benevolent effrms of the present day. Let
them remeinher,'that, whatever they pos- to
sesq, comes from the liberal hands of their gt
bounteous benefactor, and that therefore m
a larre portion of what is thus grneionsly
given, qhould he cnploved in promot ing the
Kitwoom of this bounteous Bienefactor.- r

who lost his nose by fire at a very early age
and who visited Bo'ton with the view ofun
