I bare been exceedingly delighted with
the pirlofthe mission which relates to the
Karens. On the paper on that subject,
which I send to the Board, you will see
much for.which to thank God. For the

who wish -to send-out useful articles, I
will name a few which will be most ac

If any should be disposed to send a bell,
ten or twelve of these, say about the size
of a good Academy bell, could be employ,
ed with much advantage. But what I
am more desirous of than of any of the
above mentioned articles is, that each
church should be supplied with a suitable

eight Karen churches and five Burman

articles as I have mentioned they should

Much apprehension was felt in regard

under date, Maulmein, May 1 4,
I regret to have to say, that since my

Mr. and Mrs. Hsswell were received for
a few days, has come op herewith it. for

Common Schools. Gtorrrtwcnr It
may not be amiss to stop here, and drop
a few hints on the government of schools.
Among the numerous, important duties
devolving on the school teacher, the gov
ernment of the school is not of the least
importance. Perhaps it should be placed
among the firt things to be considered.
For without order little will be accom
plished. And it is no trifling faculty, or
accomplishment, to be capable of main
taining good order in an association of 25,
50 or 75difl"ercnt dispositions, which have
been formed in 10,20 or 30 different fam
ilies.
The importance of this qualification is
maniSest from the fact that great numbers
of most amiable persons, possessing in an
eminent degree almost every other neces
sary quality, entirely fail of success in
school teaching, from lack on this one
point; while others, but illy qualified in
other respects, from some study of human
nature, parental example, natural turn
and temperament, any or all of these or
other circumstances, possessing the pow
er to maintain law and order, have
gained the respect of scholars and parents,
and have succeeded very well. The day
has gone by however, when the mere
power to nfort4 order will in general
gain respect or answer the purpose or
perhaps it may more properly be said,
when respect is to be gained or order pre
served without general intellectual and
scientific qualifications. No one should
presume that he is qualified for school
teaching, merely because he imagines that
he can govern and therefore can com
mand respect. On the other hand, no
one should trust to his other intellectual
and scientific attainments, holding in con
tempt, or treating with neglect, the art.
and-ir it may be so termed science of
governing.
Close, careful study of bmaan nature

put me question seriously, whether they
have done what they could have done to
a.s;st the school teacher in managin
their children ? Most parents will agret
with us in enjoining on the teacher the
use of moral measures. Will they allow
us to ask them whether they practice con
sistently with what they require ot the
teacher ?

Avoid at first putting the worst construc
tion on untoward actions. The most vi
cious and abandoned may sometinus be
gained by kind treatment; and if it should
be lost upon them, it is only a failure in a
good undertaking. Much mischief is
sometimes done by whispering in the ear
of a teacher as he is aboutto enter a school
with which he is unacquainted, pointing
out to him certain scholars as peculiarly
froward and unmanageable. The motive
in communicating the information, and on
the part ol the teacher in hearing to it, and
even in seeking ahe; it, may be good, and
still the effect be most unhappy. The
teacher may however turn it to good ac
count. We have seen it done thus: A.
had so been treated.at home and at schoo1,
as to have lost all seif-respect nnd all
sense of shame. His reputation, as a
scholar, was that of a clownish pestilent
renow, and he knew it. Accustomed to
severe treatment, he seemed to have made
up his mind to endure it with fortitude
had abandoned himself t recklessness and
vice, and gloried in shameful and wicked
conduct. The teacher was maJe ac
quainted with his character. This too,
from past experience, he understood, jo
that he was prepared for the worst. But
the teacher, at the first transgression, in
stead of exercising aoy physical violence,
only manifested surprise that a scholar,
from whom so much ought to be expected,
should demean himself thus, and express
ed a hope and expectation of better
things in future, affectionately pointing
him out the road to respectability.

In presenting the fourth number, which
completes the first volume of the Review,
the publishers take occasion to s'ate that
tnry nave been gratified by the success
which has attended it. It has been receiv

list has been extended so far beyond their
expectation, that they have found it neces

pfint the first number, and they can now
furnish complete sets of the work. Tko,r
do not wish it to be understood, however,
that the list is as large as it ouoht to be.
Much exertion will be m ce.-sarv. to in

to render the work permanent.

the salvation of souls &c. &c. In regard
to this extraordinary discourse, I remark',
1. It contained some gross misrepre
sentations of the sentiments and motives
of some present, who had ever treated him
with christian kindness. He represented
them as contending about a mode of bap
tism, as though they admitted a plurality
of modes, and yet were so partial to one
of them as to contend for it, even at the
hazard of ruining souls. This was a pal
pable misrepresentation of the sentiments
of those to whom he alluded, and a most
unjust, and unkind insinuation in regard
to their conduct as chris:ians. Had he
candidly stated the case as it is, had he
told his hearers, 4 There are some who
believe that christian baptism is the im
mersion of a believer in water, in the name
of the Trinity ; that immersion is the
thing which Christ instituted and enjoined
upon his followers; and that, in their es
timation, to give up immersion would be
to give up the ordinance itself, and then
canJidly and kindly stated his reasons for
belL ving otherwise, no one would have
comp!ni(icd of his couise, and it is believ
ed, fir less ii jury had been done to the
cm se of piety. But no : the bare state
ment us it is, would carry with it a con
viction of its truth, which it would be diffi
cult lor the most ingenious sophistry to j
displace. Hence misrepresentation and
uiuer mvecuve must re resorted to, to
check, if possible, its progress. But this
couise cannot long be successful. The
community are getting to understand this
subject too well to be thus abused.

what he called baptism. I cannot per

to let his sermon pass, without a fe

"They that wait on the Lord shall renew
their strength &c. The introduction to
his discourse consisted of some appropri

prcnuy couio noi retrain trom making
frequent and unkind allusions to some,
whom he represented as contending f
one particular mode of baptism, about
which they were more anxious than for
tween his language, and that of the holy
scriptures. Mode of baptism, modes of
baptism, no matter about the quantity of
water &c. &c, were phrases which fell
thick and last from his lips, as though the
use of them gave peculiar relief to his la
boring mind. But where, thought I, in
all the teachiugs of our Lord, in the in
spired history of the apostolic church, or
the writings of the inspired apostles, is
any thing said about modes of baptism ?
such a phrase is not there to be found. It
is a phrase peculiar to those who have
left the simple and significant rite which
Christ gave to his church, and substituted
sprinkling, pouring, &c. in its place. It is
a phrase, moreover,, which those who hold,
44 One Lord, cne faith,' one baptism," hare
no occasion to use. We read of baptism
in the scrip ures, and had there been, as
some maintain, several different modes of
adminis ering it, doubtless they would
have been mentioned. Bartism, in the
apostolic church, was the solemn burying,
and raising again of a true j enitent, and
believer ii, Christ, in water, in the awful
and lovely name of the Father, and of the
Son, and of the Holy Ghost. In it, the
candidate professed his dtath to sin, thro'
faiih in him who was on e deaJ, and
whoe body was enclosed in the tomb for
the sins of men, and his resurrection to a
new and spiritual life by faith in him who
was raised from the dead for our justifica
tion. Baptism was th.
j VVMUU1U1, 11JU
striking emblem of the working of regen
eration and renewing of the Holy Ghost,
in which the death and rtsurrection spok
en of takes place, through the instrument
ality of those grand truths, the death and
resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
This view of the subject, is in perfect
accordance with what the apostle says of
it in Rom. vi : 14, "What shall we
say then ? shall we continue in sin, that
grace may abound? God fotbid : how
shall we that are dead to sin live any long
er therein ? Know ye not, that so many
of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ,
were baptized into his death ? Therefore!
we are buried with him by baptism, into
death, that like as Chmt was raised up
fiom the dead by the glory of the Father
even so we also should walk in newness
of hie. See also Col. ii: 10 13. jn
coiidusnn upon this point, Ionly remark,
were all our brethren as silent about
mo les of baptism as are the scriptures,
how much less " precious time" would
be worse than wasted!

thus, and indulge in such unjust and nn
kind insinuations, when influenced by tho
dov like spirit of Jesus? It cannot be.
Such language, such misrepresentations
such dark and bitter insinuations, accom-
i iu ouiu iuuriuH5 01 voice as can
not be transferred to paper, were never
prompted by the spirit of the Lamb. V
is deeply to be regretted, that any man.
professing to be a minister of the gospe,
should ever condescend to treat subjects
in such a manner. Whoever does it, in
flicts a deep wound upon the cause of
Christ.
As to the question, who feels most deep
ly, and labors most earnestly for the sal
vation of souls, and whose sermons, and
conversation in families &c.,are most cal
culated to excite bitterness of feeling and
strife among christians, let those who
know the facts decide for themselves. For
one, I hope to labor, and converse whh
the searching investigations, and awful de
cisions of the judgment in view.

ded on the occasion spoken of, I still
cherish the belief that my friendisa chris

comes to review this matter, free from ex
citement, on his kncs before God, who
