Excess of Expenditure,

$ 36,189 70 The receipts, in each of the last three years, were less than in the year 1853; and less, on the whole, by some twenty thousand dollars, than if there had been no falling off. With no increase in the expenditure of the past three years, there would still have been a debt of $8,000; and $28,000 of the debt results from there having been a growth in the missions, but none in the receipts. In so vast a system of missions, should there not be a yearly growth of nine thousand dollars? Had the Spirit been poured out in Syria, India, China, as once at the Sandwich Islands, the growth and the consequent expense would have been far greater. We must pray less, or give more. The Prudential Committee could not have made the expenditures of the missions ally with the amount of contributions, except by a process similar to that which parents would find it necessary to employ to prevent the growth of their children. An annual increase of $9,000 in the receipts of the Board, would defray the cost of the nissions. Such a scope for development is essential to spiritual health.

The appropriation of $350,000 for the year 1857, involved no sudden and great expansion. Many give for current expenses more cheerfully, than for arrearages. But there are also large-hearted friends, who will gladly aid in removing the debt, without diminishng their ordinary subscriptions. They will see, too, the great importance of its being at once removed.

A separate account is opened on the cover of the Herald for the liquidation of the lebt ; so that all who desire to assist in its removal can do so; while those who prefer o contribute only towards the current expenses, will have no apprehension that their lonations will be applied to the debt.

The following note has been received, and the money paid :-“A gentleman of Boston will give $5,000 to the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Misions towards liquidating the debt of the Board, hoping that others may make up the ull amount ; this to be given without any diminution of the annual subscription.” Missionary House, March, 1857.

MISSIONARY PHYSICIANS. Missionary Physicians are needed at Gawar, among the Mountain Nestorians; in the central parts of the Armenian field; in the Madura mission of Southern India ; in the Zulu mission of Southern Africa; in the Fuh-chau mission in China ; and in the Micronesia mission. Physicians of unquestioned piety, sound health, a love for their profession, and a love for souls, are greatly needed in the abovenamed missions under the care of the American Board. Cannot the over-crowded profession furnish the men ?

ANNUAL REPORTS OF THE BOARD. WANTED, for use at the Missionary House in making up sets, the Annual Reports of the Ainerican Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, for the years 1822, 1823, 1824, 1825, 1826, 1828, 1829, and 1831. For most of these years there are no copies on hand, and friends who may have any of them to spare, will confer a great favor by sending them to the Secretaries, Missionary House, Pemberton Square, Boston; or to the Missionary Rooms of the Board, Bible House, New York city.

The Lists of Agents for the Publications, and of Receiving Agents of the Board, are omitted in this number of the Herald. They may be seen on the cover of the January and March numbers.

HONORARY MEMBERS. The payment of $50 at one time constitutes a minister, and the payment of $100 al Ononime constitutes any other person, an Honorary Member of the Board.

To those who receive it through agents or carriers, WITHOUT EXPENSE TO THER SELVES, the price will be, if IN ADVANCE, One Dollar and Twenty-five Cents.
