Most'of our readers, says the N York Observer, will remember the communi cations we published several years since from Hannah ICilham, a distinguished philanthropist of the Society of Friend?, who left England to establish schools for the negroes in West Africa. Her hus band, a pious Methodist minister, died soon after their marri.ige, leaving a daugh ter by a former wife to be brought up by his widow. This daughter now also a widow, (Mrs. Biller.) in a letter from St. Petersburg in Prussia, to a lady in this city, dated July 22, communicates the fol lowing interesting information. Christ ian Watchman. For eighteen years I have been at the head of a government school belonging to "the grand Duchess Helen, in which re aide from thirty to forty poor girls, princi pally motherless children, and over these 1 generally have at least a slight influ ence after they leave the school. These girls are taught Russian, reading, writing, arithmetic, needle-work, and knitting and as wo keep no servants, they do all the work of the house in turn, according to their ability and strength. Therefore by the time they are sixteen or seventeen, they are ready to enter, into light service. We have also" in the house a considerable day-school for girl?, about eighty, who are taught with. the boarders, on the plan of mutual instruction; and in addition to these, we have an infant school of about fifty children. To assist in this undertak ing, I have two young women who have teen educated with me. I take a pretty minute oversight of the whole myself, and spend about one hour and a half daily in actual teaching. Although this situation is arduous and responsible, yet being un fettered by restrictions, I can teach as 1 please, and am allowed to explain the Scriptures to them in the way that I feel to be the most natural. The "priest know in? the confidence I eniov. does neither thwart nor contradict it in his manner of instruction, which is a great favor. I oft en feel that I nm not thankful a3 I should be for this and many other privileges. ASYLUM SCHOOLS. Since our infant schdol was opened, an other kind, named asvluni schools, are In come general in this city. They are principally on the plan of those in Berlin, with , a little mixture of the infant school system. The children nre left there the principal part of the day are dressed in n kind of uniform, and fed. They are not taught much but being kept in clean . rooms and pure air, and having whole some food, these are great advantages and besides they do learn to read and to sew. A number of those asylums are supported by private individuals, and this is good in fostering a kind feeling be tween the upper and lower classes. HOUSE OF INDUSTRY PROVISION FOR THE POOR. These schools are a branch from a large institution for promoting industry, by pro viding the poor with work according to their ability; and this work, whether weaving collars, making gloves, embroid . cry, &c, is sold in a public shop at a moderate price. Work-people are also provided with food nt a very reduced price. Indeed all who please may re ceive a very sufficient dinner of soup, bread and thick gruel for twelve copicks a meal ; and this provision is so good, that the servants' refuge is regularly supplied from thence. In order to bring so season able a help within the reach of all the poor, eating rooms on tne same terms are opened in different paits of the city, and , the stock of provisions after being cooked in the principal institution, is carried to tbtse eating houses in large , vessels of tinned -brass, placed in still larger ones containing boiling water. This is a very nice help to the poor. They may either take their dinners at the general table, or carry them home; end if the latter, they may generally out of three portions have enough for four persons. There is a great desire to put down begging, and this is one of tho means resorted to, as well as a lodging for the homeless. But all does not do, for although lessened, many still Jive by mendicity. Mr. and Mrs. Brown are very dear Christians, and of my most intimate friends. The health of the latter is very indifferent, so they are going to Scotland to winter. PASTOR GOSSNER OF BERLIN -SELF-SUP-PORTINO MISSIONARIES. ... I do not know whether you have heard of Pastor Gossner of Berlin, who is a . -very eminent Christian minister and au thor. . He is a man of much prayer, and .a remarkable blessing has attended his ministry for many years. A few-years Ago tie was led to believe that missiona ries might be sent out at much less ex pense, and he himself began the trial. tie taok young men who conceived it their duty to labor among the heathen, whether they were mechanics or not let them follow their trade for n livelihood, and make use of their leisure hours in gaming such needful information as their calling required, himself appropriating some hours daily in reading the Scriptures with them, and in conversation, and in prayer. Before he had any ready for the missionary field, an Englishman in afflu ent circumstances hearing of it, wrote to Pastor Gossner, proposing to assist in sending the young men to iheir fields of labor.. What they need is but little a small stock-of clothes books, and tools 40 pursue their occupation. No allow ance is madj further they are expected to earn their own living among the heath- en, ashey are expert in trades which may be of value to the people arnon whom they are to livp. Ttvi. in iKia"monnu. has Pastor Grossner sent about twenty JVv.6 iinruj JtIJU wic accuunis ne nas .irom them from time to time are most cheering ny lately ne naa six more ready, and called to join their brethren laboring in India, indeed the request for such miss ionaries is far beyond his means of sup ply,) nnd he wrote to ask his English triend's assistance. The latter hesitated said he would wait till more intelligence was received from those already laborin Of course such an answer was unexpect ed and disappointing. Pastor Gossner called together the young men and com- uunicaieu it to them they did not loner hesitate, but came forward, observina-l We believe ourselves called to the mis sionary field, therefore we can depend up. on being provided for by Him who send ns-nnd who careth for the birds cf the Pir. After this conclusion in sirong taith, supplies came in from unexpected quarters, and Pastor Gossner was enabled to send them out stocked with all that was necessary. I often wonder that the Lord bears with our nunv. w!)Tar;n r:.u . how different would be the conduct of man under similar circumstances He would spurn us from him, and leave us in our deserved poverty. Not so nr derfully-loving and impassionate God He entreats us to believe tells .is kn soon our enemies would all be subdued what joy and sweet nearp wa shiri andeven uses the astonishing lancrUae we nna in Ma achi, in. 10. And are not the Psalms full of similar promises ? ENGLISH LADY MISSIONARY nv r.,r,. w V II 1 ESE ISLAND. A verv devoted neighborhood of London, who ia of good property, after waiting eleven years ere ",c " y upeueu ior ner to go as a mission ary, has now to her soul's delight settled in a Chinese island on whichmissiona ries are not allowed to labor. She resides in a Dutch family, and has opened two schools, one for boys, the other for oirls. Shu superintends and provides for" her mission entirely herself. She writes lhat in the town she is known by 4 The Eng lish lady come on a singular errand.' During the last few years of her waiting to go, she acknowledged that the delay was in great mercv in order to deepen her reelings cf religion, flow often dors ih christian require to bo made passive that the Lord may work in him of His good pleasure.

Physi cians might be most acceptable laborers. 1 fear we shall not live to see the time when the Christian body shall be one, and sectarian divisions considered of so little value as to be overlooked. May the day be hastened, for from the words of our blessed Savior in the 17th of John, we may then expect multitudes added to the body of believers. My firm oninion is, that until Christians live more like pil grims, and have evidentlv their nr.lv tr,. . , j ; '"-' ure in neaven, the day of full gospel liVht will nnt hr manJCuct " T . . ,i. , ? .....

Dear Brother Crowe!!, There is a pleasant revival cf religion in the west village of Framingham. The Lord has commenced i work of grace there, which we trust, will spread far nd .-iMp a ' fruit of this revival, I had the pleasure of ud.ioui luineen voung persons last Sab bath. Nine of these were young men. rour were voun? women fhlr age age is twenty years. The day was stormy, but it will not soon be forgotten After services in the morning, we repair ed to the water side, and found there a large collection, composed of individuals from the various congregations in town It seemed as though Jesus was present be holding and blessing his own ordinance. In the afternoon, these thirteen happy con verts, with one added by letter, received the right hand of fellowship, and sat down, with the First Baptist Chnrch in Framingham, ro the Lord's Supper. We expect that others will soon follow the ex ample of these thirteen, in giving their hearts to God, in being baptized, and in uniting with the church of Jesus Christ. This church is now destitute of a pastor : the respected and beloved brother, who for thirty years broke unto them the bread of lite, having resigned his charge, and entered upon a more public sphere of la bor. May the Lord in his own good time send, them the right man, and pre pare their hearts to receive him. - . Fraternally yours, Lemuel Porter. - Lo.vell, Nov. 25, 1839. VE KM 0 NT TELE GRAPH." BRANDON, WEDNESDAY', DEC. II, 183 X Closo Communion We infer from reports that reached us some time ago, that the practice erf Close Communion is what the Council mean below by the fuxdaji exta l "principles of Church building' Mr. Ranney.-we are to.d, has adopted the views of Robert Hall, and is willing to commune in the outward rite with mil whom he regards as partakers of the grace signified by that rite with all whom he exnert tn mot in Heaven. Beleiving that his Savior communes with him and them alike, he sees no valid reason why he and thev should not commune wbl, f.nrli e ther in the ordinances intitHti;d by Ohri.-t for the oenem of all be! te vets alike, and in which He is fwr ready to grant ' his blessing to all alH. e. It is (or this belief, and for practices conformed to it, so far VERMONT as we can learn, that the Baptist of this vicinity have excluded Mr. Ranney from their communion and from the denomina tion. ft. Chrouicle. The foregoing paragraph, headino- nnd all, constitutes the comments of th Chronicle on the proceedings in regard to brother Ranney, lately published in the Telegraph. It will be recollected that there was nothing in the article as published in the Telegraph, that would indicate the spe cific, charges against brother Ranney. With this characteristic of the article I was not well satisfied but concluded t3 give it a place in the Telegraph, as a mere matter of record, inasmuch as it came officially. The paragraph above, from the Chron icle, discloses the ground of the charges i agamit brcther Ranney. But whence the Chronicle's sympathy for the followers of Robert Hall? Does the Chronicle indeed adopt the peculiar sentiments of Robert Hall on the subject ot Communion? D.es the Editor of the Chronicle set open doors at the commun ion table, to 'all whom he expects to meet in heaven?' I had supposed that the.Edit-j or of the Chronicle, in common with Pe- do Baptists generally, made baptism, as well as regeneration, a prerequisite to communion. And if he doPs. I L- K;m by what rule of rationality, consistency or common sense, he condemns Baptists ior doing the same thing which he him self practices? WIio are tlic true Christians I The Thanksgiving discourse which I heard, had for its subject the present state and prospects of Christianity ia the world a cause for thanksgiving to God. I am not about to undertake an abstract of the sermon much less a general re view of it. There were one or two par ticular things in it which I shall take the liberty to touch, for the sake of the ideas they suggested to my own mind. The speaker, among other things, dwelt at some length on the reforms of the day as -being the result and lesitniate fruits of Christianity. He instanced, more particularly, Temperance, Anti Slavery, and Moral Reform, so called especially the latter two. Now an idea which struck me very forcibly was this: If these reformations are the legitimate fruits of true Chris tia?iily,who are they who have manifested thr spirit of true Christianity those who have performed the work that has pro duced these reformations, or those who have opposed the corkr(they who have borne the fruit or they who have labored to blast it? In other words, who are the true christians they who have performed this christian work, or they who have op posed itl I have used emphatic language to ex press this idea, because 1 esteem it to be an idea of no trivial or common import ance. It will be seen that a fearful issue is presented. An issue which, sooner or later must be met. I call earth and Heav en to witness that the most formidable opponents and enemies of these crreat christian reformations have been found in the ranks of the professed christian church and ministry ! It will be an idle an J vain thing to pretend that these have desired the ends, while they have deprecated and abjured the means. What single thino have they done for the accomplishment of the desired work? Have they lifted a finger, otherwise than to oppose what has oeen done' And yet the reformation, under God, has gone on and prospered in spite of their opposition. Let, then, those who oppose, see to it "lest "they be found fighting against God." The effects of Anti-Slavery ou t!ie Condi tion of tlie Slave. It is frequently alleged against Anti Slavery, lhat it makes the condition of the slave more and more hopeless. Whether this allegation is brought forward with more of siucerity than of foundation in truth', I do not know but that it has no foundation in truth there is all needed evidence to every honest, inquiring mind. The averment comes, net only in tne absence of all evidence, but in the fJCe of the fullest evidence to the contrary. It is not my intention to enter upon the general proof at this time. I onlv Ill -T to a.Iude to a single item. It js lhs in creasing number of .fugitives" from the patriarchal institution." They are rush ing out in multitudes. InouirP nf kl. who escape, and they will leii you that the number who get away ismuch great er than formerly, and is constantly in. creasing. The more intelligent classes of laem nave learned that they have friend in the Noith, and that there is liWt,, - TELEGRAPH. More than this, it is now. perfectly certain that there are in the whole great numbers of the white population at the South who are waking up to the subject, and many of them are aiding and abetting the work of escape. . On this point I have an interesting; anecdote from the mouth of one who has recently loosened the bands from his own neck, and let himself go from oppression. He was taken from Virginia three days' journey on towards Alabama, when he I began to suspect lhat ali was not going right, he therefore made his escape and returned to the region of his former resi dence, where he found friends enough to aid him in concealment By the way, he is manifestly one of those persons who it-i i "..,.: . win aiways nave mends, be lie where he ... , . , I ' J was iniormed, Irom time to time, that there were adveitisements out for him, offering high rewards. Even an officer who was employed expressly to find and arrest him, came to him and conversed with him on the subject, but refused to do the diabolical work of ar resting him ! While such a state, of feel in r is evi dently growing, who rvill be made to be,i,,e ,, ,bo cond.tion of ,h, slave U frrowurr ivnrsp 1 growinir worse ? In connection with this sulject, it may bo justifiable to address a single argument to the base feelings of those at the North who indulge in a wicked and unnatural prejudice against the color that it hath pleased God ,o give a ponion of our fol , . . v.v.to. x uiu uui uiueu in javor or in the practice of using such arguments. I throw out this one for what it is worth. It certainly has the utmost foundation in fact. It is this: While slavery contin ues, the North will be filled up more and more with the colored population from the South. So that those at the North who would "keep the races separato" as they say should sit themselves dili gently and efficiently at work, immedi- ip1,- t -,k.r 11 r , a.eU, to abolish slavery. It is slavery that mixes the white and colored popuki tion at the South. It is slavery that drives the colored population from the South to the North. It is only emancipation that can reverse this order of things. Abol ish slavery, and the laws of nature will resume their operations at the South. Abolish slaver,and those who have been driven by it away from home and friends, will have every inducement to return. I have recently questioned several who have fled from bondage, and they are uniform in stating that they should rttum to the South if it were not for slavery that they came to the North to get away from slavery and that if slavery were abolished they should return forthwith. Let it be distinctly understood that the argument contained in this last paragraph is made out an I brought forward only for those who will not entertain a better one those who have too little of Christianity and philanthropy to be moved by argu ments more christian and philanthropic. For the Tclerranh Brother Murray: You are aware that the stale cry is, of late, quite often re peated, by ministers, of the Gospel, and others who -profess to be intelligent, that the 'abolition excitement' rivets the fetters of the slave stronger, and tends to perpet uta slavery at the South with an increas ing fierceness of gmsp by the slave-holder. I Con.eo'at Xe. I was rn'i;hl..r ,vr. j .1 . luiuiiiii'u mat at tne tional Convention, held in Au- gust last in this State, a professed minister of the gospel contended strongly that we mut wait 30 years for the agitation to cease or that we must cease our agita tion that length of tTme-before anything could be done for the poor slave. On conversing with a man who had lately escaped from Virginia as a fugitive from slavery, I learned that he was informed before leaving, that about 500 had been helped away from the vicinitv from ,vh;,i, he came, within a short time" past, by men rriw- i)iM l. . , J umjj u.ere, ana wno were in favor of immediate emancipation, and that this sp.nt was on the increase. I conversed with another who came from Baltimore who stated that many had been AA their escape from that place during the " year. As the testimony of Property is not taken at the South, and as t k lrmSed lhGre Were ome Psons at the Nortk, who would not take it at Pr9. 1 . have delayed asking you to pub- Q .ms until my eye caught the fol owmg, which I find copied into the Liberator. This testimony, coming as it does from the mouth-piece of slavehold cw. I consider as good corroboration of at least a part of the. others. Will w, 2e the ,vho!e an insertion i the rUt ltraPJ And while the cry comes from different sections of the South, agit ate this question at the north as the only hope for the slave;' and while such testi mony as the following is increasing, I am reminded of an apprentice I once had, who, unless closely watched, riveted, or put his work togtther in such a manner that it soon came to piece. So it is in regard to the abolitionists riveting the fitters of the slave. If the South don't watch them close, their manacles will soon alldrop from their limbs. J. Holcosic.
