REPORT.

If the reports of our Missionaries contain nothing of a very striking character during the past year, it must not on that account be supposed that the great work in which they are engaged has not been making progress. But this progress has been more internal than external; more in the consolidation of existing Missions, and raising Native Churches to a due estimate of their responsibilities and duties, than in the extension of the Mission Field. Indeed the short interval of a year affords little scope for remarkable changes. In the Apostolic age, the Gospel, aided by a Pentecostal effusion of the Holy Spirit and miraculous powers, made a rapid and sudden advance; and possibly it may be the future privilege of the Church to witness a similar extraordinary expansion of her boundaries : meanwhile we seem left to ordinary means and ordinary expectations; and no one who recollects the obstacles to be overcome, and the inadequacy of the human resources placed at our disposal, will be surprised to learn that, after many years of patient toil, we have done little more than plant a few centres of religious light, in the midst of the vast expanse of surrounding darkness. Yet, if these burn brightly and continuously, who can tell what the ultimate result will be ?

The urch Missionary Society supports, at the present time, 148 Stations in various parts of the world. The number of European labourers is the same as last year, viz. 201; while that of Ordained Native Ministers has risen to 79. Of European Catechists there are 24, and of Native Teachers 2,112.
