Somebody, I forget who, a t remarks-that the Jesuit priestin-an Indian t t village seemed to have changed the ver t, - nature he possessed when he stood plott t , in the coot of Madrid. In China, the O Jesuit missionary is a very blessing to the B community amongst which he dwells.

It t Safereahopeless.to.attempt.to evanigelt e the .adult members of a village aommunity. t The reason o-thia lies in the intense irre- C 1Mon and materialism of even the lowest J Cinese coole. But the Jeaita, by seiing a hold of the young, by creating a genol PF e of Christians, have laid the axe to the tree f idolatry and atheism. Education, not re i conversion is their aim, and hence their e triumph. They boast but few converts, but te they-ean point toentire communities where- a 1 in Christianity has been hereditary for two r or three generations. Around the simple t chapel that witnesses the irst efforts of the Smissionary in a newdistrict, soon arise a h fndling honpital, an infant school, a e higher seminary for more advanced pupils, t and finally, a cofle , wherein not only are k , the dogmas of Christianity and the facts of e- natural science ianght, but the students s are fitted for the native literary examina V tionsr which form the only means of access to ofdcial life. The perfection of the system is thus readily apparent. It commends it self tous, inasmuch as it is an effort of re ligious enthusiasm it likewise commends b itself to us as practical men of the world. SThe first lesson it teaches us is that we a must select our missionaries with a view to i their fitness for thetask they have to at t tempt. In China a man with no special education, and with but a small modicnm Sof generaliniowledge, will, unfortunately, not leave the mission work where he finds ~ Sit but irill actually force it backward. a e Te learned and subtle iesoners of China - look for wisdoisand dialectics; need I say is a they are generally disappointedt Now, instead of hoping for miracles, let us exert Sonurselves to secure a useful result to our g " labors when properly directed.

Let physal ence and medicine a , enter into the curriculum of instructioni,, c r and thus armed at all points, let our mis- S g olonary forth, as the Jesuits have gone Us h beioe m, conquering and to conquer. fe t That is one lesson the Catholic missionaries n teach us.

The reverend gentleman adduced some ex cellent instances of the inconsistenci f the Anglican, so-called " Catholic" h, but I could have supplied him -th one d which would, I think, have" ped" them all. It is about nineteen. s-ago since I r was stationed in Poona qp greatest mili I tary cantonment of .estern India. Reiz_ in those days aP tat,-I nused, of course, r to attend se in the Established Church. I There we wo elplains attached to the c ehurch Poona, tsenior, Mr. Allen, an ior, Mr. 1enton, of rinity, Dublin, was a decided Calvinist in his views. On one particular Sunday, the junior chaplain had to go-in the morning to iupply the duty at the cavalry station at Kirkee, about six mI iles off, the chaplain of which was unwell, e and of course was not present at athe morn ing service at Poons. Afteri the usual prayers were oigr at-the Poona church, the senior chaplain got into the pulpit, and e p reached a very good sermon from the text. " By grace are ye saved through faith, and that not-of yourselves, it is the gift of God" He took the view of the subject which holds that salvation is offered toesry man, s and that all are free to accepti or-reject it... In the afternoon the-junior chaplain re turned, and after the prayers he'mounted o the pulpit and gave out the same textbnut ,s took a diametrically oppositoxinwiani n... the strongest terms copidemned the opinions r of those who held that men are not predes tined to be saved or otherwise. The con F gregation, of course, began to look at each other some smiled and others were vexed. f Not iaving.,been present in the morning, 8 the junior chaplain could hardly understand 'why his strongCalvinism was received with such astonishment. The next day an ex planation between the two clergymen took e place, and a member of the cong-regation * wrote to the bishop, and asked him what he c and others were to believe-which of the e -two doctrines they were to trust in. The reply I did not see, but I understood that i his lordship (Dr. Carr was in those days , Bishop of Bombay) replied that there was t nothing innither sermon which was con trary to the doctrines of the Church of England! From this it, ofcourse, follows, rthat clergyman may preach against each Sother's doctrines, even in the same pulpit, Sand yet not be out ofrule. CATallocIrY Inx Nw Z.aLAND--An Angli can, writing from New Zealand to the London C- ihurch News, says : - You ask me if I ever go to church now, and I a suppose you will be sorry to hear I do not. f However, it is not altogtether my fault; foar Sthere is no church to go to. There i popula tion of upward of Ave thousand people here, and the only places of worship ate a Romai Catholic chapel and a Dissenting one; of ocnrse-there is no church. of England, anb no propectof one'being built. The more I see of a Protsstats the more I admire their style of religion; they would get up misaionary-de a ties for converting a lot of niggers, and they will allow the whole of the west couast of New SZealand,'on whclch there are from seventy to ety thousand inhabitants, to remaain with uu. .one h- - ad o 1e !e- - * * th Roman Catholieha4 ohlpehmad priests onla every little diggng on the coast. From all I Ie ·tre seen I firly believe the latter to be ten - I tiltes better Christians than we are.
