The Committee on Missions would
present the following report:
The present century has been
marked by a revival of interest on
this subject, At the beginning ol
the last century there was not a sin
gie missionary society in the world
Only five were organized during the
whole of that century, and the first
of these was more for home than
foreign evangelization. Theie are
now m ?urope and America seventy
Protestant missionary societies, and
besides these a number of colonia:
societies. Most of these societies be
long to the last. fifty years, from
which it may he seen that the inter
est in foreign missions has of lat?
been steadily increasing, and is nov
far in advance of any preceding eer.'
tory of modern times.
Did our space permit it would b
interesting to inquire at length int
the causes which led to the dedin
of the missionary spirit in the Chris
tian Church. There was certainl
no ambiguity in the commissi ya. give
by Christ to his apostles, and throng
them to the whole body of believer
"Go ye therefore, and teach ail n;
tionB, baptizing them in the ?amo c
the Father, and of the Son, and <
the Eely Ghost: teaching them ;
observe all things whatsoever I ha\
commanded you: and lo, I am wii
you always, even unto the end
the world." There was nothing i
the example of the apostles ar
their co-laborers lut what was in a
cordance with the requirements
this commission, and adapted io e
conrane and stimulate aggression ?
the part of thr-ii successors. In co
nection with the persecution whi
followed the martyrdom of Stepke
it is said: "They that were scatter
abroad went everywhere pre*chi;
the word." St. Paul's minister
life was one lons persistent, effort,
preach the gospel" in regions beyont
L'--- Not intent, with having "preach
? , ! iipTi'mootrfw^-Arn and rou
proceeding onward to Spaim^i'h
was no lack of success to early r
sionary labor to beget dr-ubt o:
discourage activity in a ? .itary
rection. St. Pani could joyfully
claim, "Now, thanks be unto G
which always causeth me to triun
in Christ, and maketh manifest
savor of His kuowledee by us
every place." By tie close
the first century Christian
could number its adherents in ev?
province of the Roman Empire:
converts were to he found in evi
walk cf life; among noblemen as w
as among slaves; amoug soldier?, s
merchants, and artisans, and hi
bandmen, and even among those w
were domiciled in Caesar's hou
hold. What, then, led to the cc
traction of the sphere, and to t
/ impairment ot Christian enterprh
We cari do little more than menti
w*hat we believe to have been t
causes. First, the imperfect knov
edge which then existed of the gee
raphy and population of our glol
The earth was supposed to be a il
disc, floating uroa the water, ar
the greater pa?t of this di?; w
thought to bejnrludcd in the Rom*
Empire. This will explain the co
fidence with which the Aposti
themf "es anticipated the speed
conversion of the world and the sei
ond coming of Christ. The prim
tive Christians were not aware of tl
magnitude of their work. They io
agined the port to be in sight, an
were tempted to take in sail, whe
what they saw was but the gi earn in
cloud laud of their own fancy. Th
next cause was the dreadful persea
tion to which the Church was sut
jected by the Roman Emperor;
There were ten of these in particular
and so widespread were they, and R
fierce and sanguinary, that the num
her of believers was materially re
dnced, and their benevolent opera
tions more or less obstructed in even
quarter of the Empire. Anothe*
. cause was the union of Church anr
Stale, which was consummated sou;
i after the conversion of Constintine
This, by opening avenues to wealtl
\and power, corrupted the leaders o.
the Chur h and led to a struggle ioi
preferment, in place of the salvation
\ of the world. Still another canst
N was, the doctrinal dissensions which
divided the Church into con^odino
laciipDe. fixing the attention more
upon" dogma than practice, and ex
citing n'Pre interestsin the phraseol
ogy of a cried than in the conversion
?.1 a sinner. The last cause was th?
nae a^ hd ^ p Thj
combination S?^ Christianity and
paganism, gradually "tended its in
.inence over most of the countries
wnich had been evar.seiWd and
employing force when its bVndish'
ments Jailed to secure converts e-ren
toally succeeded in almost ex tiri* 1
mg true religion from the earth J;
ia true that Popery sent forth mid
.sionaiies to heathen J ,?,ds, but they
were not missionaries in the Gospel
sense They were more ambition- lo
extend the sway of their church than !
the sceptre of Christ. A chan 'fe cl
name was more to them than a chan**
of heart. To submit to be sprinkled
with holy water was more gratiiyincr
than to seek to be baptized-with the
-Holy Ghost. Their inspiration was
the aggran lisement of Rome, and
not the glory of the Redeemer
. To these five causes, then, acting
V >n succession, we a:tribirte the de
?^cline of the missionary spirit in the \
Christian Church. The condition of
the Church became such, at length,
that her members were compelled to
act pol ely on the defensive, and to do
what they could to keep her licht
from being totally extinguished. The
steps bv which she recovered from
her obscurity and attained her pre
sent aggressive attitude we can bare
ly notice. First came the Reforma
tion, under Martin Luther. This
was followed by tho Revival/under
John Wesley. The work of these
two men was the necessary prepara
tion for the wider work which char
acterizes our day. These spiritual
gunts removed the rubbish that had
been accumulating for centuries upon
the fountain of eternal lite, and once
more gave its healing waters egress
to the nations.
It is singular, however, how slow
the emancipated Church was to re
sume her evangelistic labors among
the heathen. It would seem as
though in battling for existence, she
had forgotten the universality of her
original commission. Like a prisoner
who has been immured for years in
a darksome cell and grown accus
tomed to its gloom, is unable, at first,
tb took upon the day; so, accustomed
to move only in the narrow^sphere
which was imposed on her during the
pet ?od of her depression, she long
evinced an inability to recognize the
full extent of her responsibility.
Who has not heard of William Carey,
the "consecrated cobbler," to whom
India is so much indebted? At a
mee ting of Baptist, ministers, about
the year 1789, at. Northampton, Eng
land, Carey, who had been studying
the map of the heathen world while
mending shoes for a subsistence, pro
posed the iollowing topic for discus
sion: "The duty of Christians ti
attempt the spread of the Gospel
among heathen nations." Mr. Ry
land, one of the leaders and fathers
and a devout man, heard the youn<:
cobbler with am<>zement. Unable t(
repress his indignation at what h<
regarded as interterence with th<
plans of God. he sprang to his fee
and srid: "Young mau. sit down
when God pleases to convert tin
heathen, He will do it without, yon
aid or mine." Many of you h av
read tie lite of Dr. Coke. Who does no
recall the pathetic scene when, pal
with fasting and prayer, and wit
the tear-drops trickling down his fm
rowed cheek?, he implored the We?
leyan Conference of England to at
tborize him to establish a mission i
the East, pledging his own fortune t
secure the success of the undertal

MESSRS. EDITORS : Perhaps it may
be of Home interest to yon and the
public, and especially to those who
are watching our progress, morally
and ?eligiously, to know something of
our advancement in religious ;and
Sunday School work. Therefore,
please allow me space iu the columns
of your valuable paper to express a
few thoughts on the Bubject.
The Macedonia Baptist Sunday
School Convention, composed of about
oO schools, assembled in its seventh
annual meeting, with the Mt. Zion
School, on the 21st of July, 1382, and
continued in session 8 days. Intro
ductory sermon preached by Rev. J.
W. Williams. Notwithstanding the
heavy rain which commenced very
soon after the opening of the meet
ing, nearly all of the schools were
well represented by letter and by
delegates. From reports of schoolp,
there seemed to be a remarkabfe im
provement on the part, of our people
in religions and Sunday School work,
The Rev. L. Simons, President, de
serves great credit for the manner in
which he presided over the body.
According to previous notice, the
Sunday School Institute was organ'
ized on the second day of the sessior
by Rev. C. M. Brawley, o!" Columbia
Secretary of the Baptist Educational
Missionary and S. S. Convention o

The meeting waa one of specit
interest and profit to Sunday Scho<
teachers. Bro. Brawley is a ma

Carolina have need to be proud o
He has done incalculable good in n

of this State, and especially for tl
