NE1 N Another Amalgamation Meeting? Adjourn?1 Meeting of the Abolitionists nt Concert Hall?The Question of the Dissolution of the Union again Discussed. MoRjcrtQ Svseio*.?The room was ahout half filled, and there were ahout "2fW persons present. A moiety of the audience waa composed ot females, and there were but a email proportion of negroes and itegresHcapreMint. James C. Fi lijsr was in the chair, and the moraine was toiallv nei<im;.<i #; , "} nancial matters, and listening to a negro named Luntslord Lane, who sat on the platform with a 11 gresa stated to be liia mother, another said to b? his wife, and six little negroes and negresscsof various ages, forming u semi-circle with the white president 111 the centre. The children seemed hardly to know what to make ol the motley assemblage before him, and sucked their fingers, and looked as if they would like to know what it was nil about. The negro told his tala, which was to the effect that he paid #1000 for lus freedom, and worked hard and saved money, and went south to purchase that of his wife and family, where he was i tarred tnul ftitthrred and rodt on it rail, and that he paid S3.500 for the freedom of his family Here Mr. HptiER, of lloston, got up, and reroni-* mended that a collection should he [made for Lane, i i and inviting those present to give their contribu- ' ! lioas to him, or some otlier person. A committee of 42 having been appointed to report on the sphere of operations for the society, 1 | amount of funds they should raise, icc., for the en- | suing year, recommended resolutions to the follow- i ing effect:? ] tat. The Society should employ efficient agents to visit 1 every portion of the North. 3d. Ou the motion of Abby Kelly that 160,000 should be raised for the Executive Committee. 3J. That a subscription lilt for contributions of $100 j and upwards, should be commenced. 4th. That a collection should be made, which In th aggregate should amount to $3 for every person present ' Mb. That they should issue a financial address, setting forth the necessities of the cause. < On the question of the adoption of the second resolution, Wendell Philips made a speech, from which it appeared that certain charges had been made against the executive committee of embez ' r.ling the money entrusted to their care?with whnt truth we know not, as we could not learn the particulars. After Mr. Philips had spoken, r Mr. French reit"rated the charge in plain language against the executive committee of having shamefully squandered i the money and abused their lru3t ; and said that all , they had done was to take a voyage to Europe, with plenty of money in their pockets, lie hoped the committee would not have control of eo much. A Mr. Foster, who appeared from his color to 1 Have negro blood in his veins, made a rambling speet^i, in which he said something about mobr, ana called this city of New York a polluted tUivtholdinr city, lie said that the society ought to i raise five times $50,000, and went dead against the ] executive committee having control over the funds to so large an amount. He also talked about himself and others separating from the society. A colored man, named Docolas, stated that he i had brothers and sisters in slavery, and he would | rather see fifty dollars paid into the abolition treasury, than that $50,000 should be paid to release ' his brother* and sisters, it any person was willing to | do to. Abbt Kjilly niade a speech, in which she jumbled , up work, money and politics, and said that they were to have an abolition meeting in New Haven 1 next Wednesday, and invited the Chairman to be i present She then went on to state that she had pledged herself with u boy, named James Monroe, to raise 85000 towards the #50,000, and wanted to : know, if a boy and woman could raise $5000, what ( ought not the " lords and ludies of Creation" to dol She also said, that she had three years ago thrown herself, body and soul, petticoats as well, into the ' abolition cause, and did not consider she had done any act of charity or benevolence in so doing. The auestion was then taken whether the amount should be reduced to $*20,000. us had been proposed, or whether the $60,000 should be placed uuaer the control of the executive committee, when the original resolution was carried. Joiis A. Coluns then rose to niake a speech, but was interrupted by a negro, who seemed dissatisfied, because he was not allowed to speak instead of Mr. Collins. Order having been a little restored, Mr. Collins made some allusion to mobs, when he was again interrupted by half a dozen peraons at once, negroes and whites, and the Chairman had same difficulty I in restoring order. Order was eventually maintained, when Mr. Cob- . li.vs prooosod the adoption of the third resolution proposed by ths committee, that a $100 subscription list be opened. He made a short speech?a sort of medley?referring to a good niuny things, i when the resolution was seconded ; and before tne chairman had time to put the motion, some person called out, " and I move that friend Collins lie a|>pninted to call out for the subscriptionson which i another shouted out111 second that motion." The CaAtuiAX having put these two motions, declared them carried, und -Mr. Collins forthwith commenced his duties of collecting money by auc- i lion. At this stage of the proceedings a good tnuny persons left the room, and the little niggers on the < platform, who had evinced a moat decided inclination to go to sleep, were also taken out. I Mr. (. ou.m was indefatigable in his duties of | | auctioneer and patenbroker, railing upon the repre- i l sentatives from various towns which he mentioned i | to give $100; if they would not give it, to pledge i themselves to raise it in the towns or counties < which had delegated them. By the exercise of all ' his powers of suasion and rhetoric and soft-soaping, i h* managed to obtain pledges for about $3,600, in i addition to $5000 procured by Ahby Kelly. During i the progress of the auction, ne particularly desired the audience to speak out lor the benefit of there- i porters, whom he told them were present, and not ^ to think of the anti-slavery eause. One person on i whom he called for a pledge, told hint that the abo- i litionists in the town where he came from were all ( dead, and therefore he could not give anv; and ^ 11.1... u*.!!- ? -j ?i ! l--i i i owl/* uriij uiuywptu, mini uiojf uau iirru wailing J I a long time for a bid, that they should take smaller J i pledges, by which means they obtained #50 from a j | feinalc named Lincoln. 1 , ArrBRMooJt StastoJt,3 o'clock.?James C. Fvlukr I in the ('hair. 1 The business of the meeting in the afternoon wan 1 the further consideration of a motion for the inde- i finite post|K>iiemenl of the resolutions and amend- i ment introduced in the meeting of the dav be- * fore. I The debate wasconunenced by Mr. French, who ?| advocated the original resolutions, in opposition to t the amendment, and uiadc a long prosy speech ' which wearisd every body who had the misfortune I to be present. The substance of it was, that if the t question of the dissolution of the Union wss submit- r ted to the slaves, they would not wish it; and that if f the abolition people were alluwed to go South, and c call the masters and slaves together, and explain I their views to them, he thought slavery would very li soon be abolished. * During Ins speech lie was many times interrupted, I and called on to proceed to the point t When Mr. French sat down,4he Chairman was r making a lew remarks, when he was interrupted, h lie immediately said?" Oliver Johnson, wilt thou 'I not interrupt me. and let one speak at a time, for tj thou createst confusion." '! It being now four o'clock^ and that time having ti been agreed upon to resume the consideration of the n financial bustnetw a motion wss made to lay the a subject on the table till this morning, which wasne- * gattved. '' There was then considerable confusion^several . nenons wishing to s|>cak nt once. At last tl.W . F. Mellon, of Iiosion, obtained the floor, nnd made a f*w remarks. He was succeeded by Wendall Philip", snd then there being a general wish expressed v to hear Mr. Ilurleigh, he gave his opinions why he considered a dissolution of the Union not only un- * advisable but impracticable, iu an eloquent speech v of an hour's duration, which was loudly applauded, s Anny Keij.v then got up and made a s\>*eeh of <. about three quarters of an hour in duration, going the " big figure-' in favor of the dissolution, talking '' very disparagingly with respect to it. nbusing the d South in the most unmeasured fnns, calling the . Ranter* thieves, robbers, adulterers nnn murderers. t (When Abby had spoken rather more than 15 minutes which was the tuns allotted to each spenker. 'I unless by consent of the meeting, the Chairman r rose and said h" had Iteen accused of partiality, but lit wa? perhaps as gallant as nuy ol them ami thought the meeting would wish to h"nr Abby v longer, and the inetwng so decided.) Abby went o on to declare that she wa? a democrat in tlie largest , sense of the word, called on all the nbolitionista to come out trorn the Union and be separated froin '' the South, nbuacd Presidtnt Tyler awfully J and talked utcui honor among thieves 1 ^ vv v o EW YORK, SATURDAY I Alter Abby had finished, Mr. Uradbum rose and suid there was a lady from the South wished to lb s;>eak. 'Lite lady from the South accordingly got tin to s\?cak; she was dressed in n black dross and black R< velvet bonnet, and spoke at tho ceinitiencement in Ia a verv low tone of voice. [The Chairman remarked on its being mentioned, that the steam would soon get up.] She made some very sensible remarks respecting the violent spirit which actuated Abhv Kelly; said this was the first time she had at- pa tended a meeting of abolitionists or had heard their , 8u principles explained. i>he said if they moved in the : I spirit of love and kindnea* towards the South, in- s* stead of bitterness and hate, they would rouse all i J*' the chivalry of the South in their behalf. She said | J? the South was not without religion or a sense of justice, that the slaves were at present unfit for freedom, and if einancip itad to-morrow would not know y, what to do with it. She said that they should write letters in a spirit of kindness and charity setting forth their views, and send them to the principal men ut the South; " aye," she suid, " and to the j?' principal women too, for it it lot that raist tht boys." u [Enthusiastic applause.] Instead of talking of the dissolution of the Union, you should exert your ta- 'It lents in spreading pun views on this subject. She tei concluded by saving that no man was ever con- ae vincrd by force. " A bullet through the head," she aaid, "was no doubt a very forcible argil- Pe incut, Dui no man ever lived to acknowledge it." | Ti The lady sat down amid* the mo*t enthusiastic np- : 1 plausc. Mr. Buadbvrn then made a speech, saving if the pe amendment promising to dissolve the f.'nion was Tl parried, three-fourths of their numbers would leave the society. He also said that if the speeches on both sides of this question, which had been delivered, Le were put side by side, they would use one another tip, and like the Kilkenny cats, of which so much Ml has been heard, their would be nothing left but their tails; and, if mankind did not grow better, t|i lie did not so much carc if Mr. Miller's theory of ln the world coming to an end in 1343, should prove m to be true. Eomi'nd Quincv, (whom we by mistake called Joaiah in our report of the day before yesterday,) moved, with a view to end the discussion, that the |{ whole matter be laid on the table, whicn was se- w ponded by Wright, the individual who proposed the ov amendment, and on being [nit by the Chair was t|, parried unanimously. ,j,i French, who seems to havr a most determined jQ wish to bore the audience, here wanted to speak [j, again but thry would not hear him any how he ^ could fix it, and the meeting adjourned till to-mor- ag row morning. h, Another Amalgamation Meeting?Concla- ^ slon of the Meetings of th* Abolitionists, ju Yesterday the motley group composing these as- ar semblages, met again at nine o'clock in the morning, Se at Concert Hall. The time of the meeting was professedly to have been devoted to the transaction of ra the business parts of the arrangements. The fire- le brand of discord, which has had extensive sway in i t0 the meetings of these fanatics, was, howaver, soon ei introduced by a negro moving a resolution that the *d sum of 2000 dollars should be appropriated for the ^ purpose of testing, in the Supreme Court, some of fr< what he said were the negro's rights in South Carolina. This gave rise to a very angrv discussion ?ti among the negroes and negreeaea assembled, varied h< by a white now and then putting in his voice. A th negTo, -named Douglas, (the man who would not ln purchase the freedom of his brothers and sisters ti who are slave#,) in opposition to the resolution, th wluofc he said, if passed, would be throwing the 1110 ncy away, became very personal in bis attacks? ho talked about the negro population of this city being ,* prejudiced against the Abolitionists?mingled up in m his speech tnalighity, blackness of heart, tranacen- hl dentalism, squashisra, woman's rightsism, and all Ai the other isms he could think of, and concluded by *' denouncing a negro, named Julius Ctosar, a Jersey- b: man, aa having no heart. f?i This brought up about 30 uegroes and negressce, ^ together with Abby Kelly, and some of lbs white men, who all wanted to speak at ones in reply to th his attacks, und some to lay tha whole concern on bl the table, in order that they might get on with buai- b< nt'as. A nagro named Smith succeeded in making him- M self heard for a moment or two, when the greatest Jj' contusion prevailed, and our reporter thought that it nc would end in a riot, for no attention was for some Cj, time paid to the Chairman bv tha excited negroes, lii who eeemed as if they were both willing and able tin to eat their colored brother, Douglas. A lull took place at lost, and the following colloquy took place w between the chairman and a tat blawsy looking no- J"? irees, who had been trying to make herself hoard before ;? Xboikss.?Mr. Chairman. Chairman.?Thou muan't aar anything; thou'rt c? not in order. in Xeorkns?Mr. Chairman, I just warn to let you foi know?

I tell thee J? thou'rt not in order. The negrees was. however, determined to have m< lier own way and ahe tired the Chairman out and vt' ihen said, 1 tell you Mr. Chairman I just want to ug ?ay this here; if these here man here are frraxhtend bu at the women, let them get out of this, (alluding to po what Douglass had said about women's nghti-tnis ) m' This caused a laugh and the hubbub was iintncdi- ?? itcly renewed, the Chairman trying to get order and <ix or seven negroes and two or three whits men (.a, Irving ro speak at ones. i,al The Chainnan, after some time had elapsed, o!>- thi ained a little quietness, and then put a resolution thi which had been moved and seconded, that the Dr whole subject should be laid on the table. This was ran-ied and brought up all the negroes again, me of whom moved a reconsideration of the rote. This gave half a dozen negroes an oppor- jj unity of speaking a little time, ami among others qU Iiilius (?csar obtained the floor and spoke for nj| ibout ten minutes in reply to the attacks of br< 'ouglas, repaying hmi in kind for the abuse lie h? lad heaped ueon him, saying among other severe callings, that * ne had been brought up on abolition ap, and therefore he, Julius Caviar, who had "suf- 1" ered as n slave," would not condescend to take any J]," lotice of him. Altogether it was an interesting %1s erne to witness, to those who had nothing better rn, o do, hut rather tiresome to thoee who had. The pat lucstton of reconsideration was at laat put to the tioi nesting and negatived, whereupon the business of "ni he meeting was resumed, which was?having was- chi ed three days in useless discussion?passing resoluions at railroad speed. Another interruption to the irogressof the business, was a resolution proposed ni, iy Foster, that the sum of ten pounds sterling, re- ,h? rived as a subscription from ffir James Fowell tr? iuxton of Condon, England, should be returned to an< urn, because it was derived from an " impitre" Bn i._ i i M'l.:- - ?.- - c? ? nun c, nc ueiri^ it urewn i iu? ijuiie a I' Hare of the meeting, but being opposed, it was lost. 1 be meeting deciding that they would take all the J* uoney thev could get, wherever it came from or cl)( mwever obtained.

The atate of public sentiment with regard the society, had engaged the attention of the yard. .They had noticed, with deep concern, me misgivings in the minds of some good men, jainat extending aid to this society. The iiueetion id been asked, is this society needed 1 The con quence has been that the operations of the society id been much impeded. The directors were, wever, able to say that there were no evidences nongst the Christian community to abandon aitoither the society. The objections were not to the inciplea of the society, but to the probability of its ijure in effecting its objects. The practical opation of the society had also received careful atntion. The period of classical 6tudy, preparatory admission to the benefits of the society, had been ;tended, and other measures of reform adopted. Profeiior Ai.drs, of Williami College, then moved the option of tho reports. It had been intimated in that doimrnt last read, that there was an idea in tome quarters, at there was no need for thlaaoeiety. But it must arise am a lad want of information?a very mistaken idea of e valuo of the operations of the society. Very often e heneGriariev of the society effected an incalcul>le amount of good when pursuing their studies, and i would remind his auditors that the mere increase of inisters w as not sdjfcient, and it did not follow from at, that there was nmtieed of the labors of that society, the recent reviv als of religion in the Universities, the neficiaries of that society tmre a moat conspicuous nlacn. tiev had met and nraved mrbt after nisrhi Inn* h?fnr?

The age in which wu live aud that iu which our immodiute successors are to live is one great crisis iu the history of Christianity and of the w orld. The signs of it we see in all these thronged assemblies, and all llifl high responses iu our hearts prompting us to go on. In every land where the Bible is found, h is beginning to do a w ork which it has not yet done. Wa therefore want an able ministry oi 111 o Now T nit anient ; for by the foolishness of preaching the world is to he sat e*l. There is a great differenro between an educated men and a learned man. The latter often is ignorant of thnt which he ought to know; he doesn't know the heart of man. Mas his head like a tieaat of burden; the panniers tilled with learned tomes, reiuty to crush him to the heart. The others can apeak to theheun and from the heart. The missionaries to be sent to the Hindoos and Persians, and to Turkey to translate learned languages, to dispute w ith the philosophers of Pur. sia, tic. must be learned and edurated men. We are not training up priests, but educating men to pruach the living word of (iod. It's an easy matter to make a priest.? Tho great question for the coming sgp, ia whether if a man can belieTe at ail, he cannot he saved as well without the aid of a priest or minister as with one. Nothing so easy as to make a priest to go through the mere forms of religion. Rut we have to struggle to raise up men to preach Christ and against the hierarchy of the priesthood. And what a glorious work this is for the contemplation ol' tho Christian heart I The meeting closed with some excellent singing. Closing Act of the Great and Religious Drama In thla City? Anniversary of the Great Foreign Missionary Society. Nearly the whole of the audience present yesterday were ladies?very much of the same character as those that were present at the Bible Society the day before. Though the number of widows was largely increased, and there were several small female children present. One fact is worthy of remark on this, as on the occasion of all the anniversaries during the week, and it is this: the ladies were all, or very nearly, in nttendanee at an early hour, so as not to disturb the meeting after it commenced. On the other hand, most of the clergymen came in very late, and fussed about, and disturbed the meeting considerably. The music was most excellent, particularly the second pieee. The two first speakers were very poor ones, and had a very bad delivery. The second one read most of his speech from a long string of notes, which ha held in his hand. The chair was taken by the Hon. Theodore FrellrurhiiVHen. The meeting wn? ojiened by prayer from the llev. Dr. Dc Witt. The Hon. T. Frelinghuyeen then said, thu Rev. Dr. Armstrong, one of the corresponding secretaries of the society, will reud a sUtenisnt of its operations during the post year. The statement road thet there was u growing interest in Missionary enterprise, unci that thsincroaacd expanses of the society Induced by increased exertions brought 011 s fiuancinl crisis, which could only be uvertvd either by breaking up torus of the missionary stations or by increased Contributions. There W us au ap|>Ml, <kor?tlie, wad* on behalf oftha society, ut tbs last annual meeting, which was met by a prompt, universal ami decided response. In five months the sum of $1*10,000 was collected? this ens. hied them to pay tha currant expencos, and liquidate the debt amounting to $00,000. There has been a falling off In contributions subsequent to the first of March, which has bean attributed to tha savare pecuuiarr pressure prevailing about that time. The finaucial your closes on the 81st July, and the receipts for nine months, up to the 80th April, 1949, were $964,899, exceeding those of a similar period lust year, by $71,78d. From 1st May, 1941, to 80th April, 1849, there has lieeu received $800,813, exceeding the twelve months previous by $47,063. The scale of expenditure adopted has been $40,000 below the estimates sent home from the Missionary stations. There have been tweuty-two missionaries and assistants seut out for tbs first time by the society. and two have returned after a temporary sojourn in this country. Of these, to India have bean sent 9; to Ceylon 7; to Western Africa 8; to Weetern Asia 'J; and to the Sandwich Islands A Ten bars been removed by death; 19 have been released from tbeir duties at tbeir own request, and fifteen have been appointed assistant missionaries. During tha past year there have been 96 new missionaries and assistants appointed, and during the cxistauce of the society it has ordained 140 missionaries, 'JIS assistants, and 146 native helpers, making s totul of 631 laborers, distributed among eighty stations, comprising 60 churches and about 90,00u church members. There are 600 free schools, with about 40,000 scholars, and SU boarding schools and seminaries, with 1,130 scholars. The society supports 16 printing ustablishnicuts, with 09 presses and 6 type foundries, which haveissued in the year about 30 million pages in 30 different languages. The prospects of the society it states to be in a most encouraging slate. The printing done by the missionaries in the Handw ich Islands, from April 1, 1810, to April 1, 1941, amounts to upwards of 10 million pages. There are 867 schools, 006 teachers, and 18,034 scholars in those island#. The missionary seminary contains 84 pupils and the female seminary 78. Tha contributions made there in support of schools, teachers, meeting houses, Ac., amonnt to $4380,88. The whole number admitted to churrli membership is 39,808, and during the past year, 1 473. Oflhess there are dead 1,483, suspended 9,491, remaining suspended 1849, excommunicated 1,391, and the number remaining is 18,908; children baptised 7,791, couples married 1,814, and average of congregations on the Rabbsth |8,0.">0.

There was 110 duty more im perativc than obedience to that command? "go y e into the world and preach the gospel to every creature !"' But ihe word "duty" wav a cold one w hen applied thua, and ia far from convet ing a ti ue idea of the Christian work of F.vangrlinng tfie world. When we say of Paulthat he lone hit dutv . do we not rob him of some of his glory.? True, indeej. lie done no more than hia duty, and if they could tiring the holy Apostle from hia bright'abode to meet with them today, he would exclaim that he had come far from doing hia duty. And the church in every are had tailed iu doing her duty. But In order to illustrate nis sentiment that duty w as cold, ami in this application he would present a few thoughts, and iu the nrat place he woul 1 remark that the commitaiou of Jesuv, "go spread ray gospel to the utmost bouuda of tlic earth," is a proof of the love of ( hrist inasmuch as it gives scope to the exercise of gratitude. That was an emotiou natural tothc human heart, and in all placet and circumstances it was found in exercise Even vice itself could not eulirely destroy it. It was indispensiblv requisite to the happiness of a noble creature to have the menus of testifying gratitude for favora received. And how was it that God expressed in his holy word the happiness of the angelic throng I It wasby describing their continual employ metu a? being the singing of praises, in which they poured forth their gratnful Teeh ings?It was the loud acclaim of gratitude which const! tuted their joy. And it was in order that the Church could have an opportunity ofexpreseing her gratitude, that her Lord and Saviour |>ermitted her to labor for the salvation of a world lying in And there w as no other way in which incy could testify their gratitude to Christ. What other plan could they devise? Should they dig deep into the earth, nud bring up keratore houses? should they call the angelic ministers to their aid, and sweep the heavens of their glittering iewelry, in order to bring gifts to offer at the footstool of their God? No, no ! Ali was as much bis before as after the gift was offered. And, therefore, God iu his kindness and love had told us that we ran i.t this way magnify bis name, and testify our gratitude. Delias, for this purpose, commissioned the Church to go and spread bis go? pel. Again, by laboring in this cause, they are told that they could give joT in I anvsa The second thought which he wished to ofter was, tk it this commission was indirectly the prompting of Divine love. The natural effect of these labors In the Missionary erase, was to elevate the Christian character of those engaged in them. They never heard a missionary cliuich mourning over derlen sion iu godliness, 'fhey needed no illustration of this i evidence or its truth rose up on every side, and was present in thehenrtsof all who were working faithfully in thia cause, llo would appeal to every Christian, and ask if he had ever entered the room of the monthly concert of prayer, and listened to the story of some repentant tinner, w hether he ever went away w'ithout a heart burning witk new love! Or take the Inunhle Sabbath school teacher? did she ever rise from her labors without feeling her own heart glowing with love to God. One further thought lie would urge was, that Christ conferred by this commission the highest honor on his church, lie made ner eoopcrnte with himself in the work which chiefly occupies the attention of God and hit holy angels. It w ould teem ts if Chris', had had but one desire, and that the salvation of our guilty race. He had no arm for any other work.? Did it show no lorn to his chnrch then, that to her he was willing tuconfidetbis work? He had angels and principalities and [towers at command, but hn did not give them the work, he gave it to his own blood-bought church. And what did he use? The lips of his own pooplr, whose prayers hn permitted to mingle with that intercession which he is continually employed in offering at the right hand of God. He wished his church to share in the glory and honor of saving the world. Oh', whalan honor. In illustration of this, let them' look still farther. Hn would also make his people almoners to the world of hie bounteous Providence. This honor have all the saints.? What a rich display of love! And if these things be so they would learn how to estimate the embarrassments under which the society labored. Christ wished to bestow on the soeietv additional honor. These embarrassments were not ow nig to the hardness of the times, but because God had bh'Mod their exertions, and was making additional calls u) on them Mr. Pehkiim rose and said?It is right years since 1 Brat reached the field of my mission, the Nmtoriaui in Persialt WHS theil a vri'st vsllsv full nf hniu.i vmw moil. Dna very dry bones, as Ezekiel ?nw in bis vision. My feelings on surveying it, were very like those of the prophet. The natural beauty of the coun try only rendered the moral darkness more risible. For the native charms of Ooroomaiah are unparalleled. Beneath the bright effulgence of a Persian sky, their abundant crops, and beautiful scenery gives one an idea that it looks too much like Eden to make them think of the moral degradation around There the Mohanmluns literally wallow in the corruption of their depraved system. As a people, they are among in* l*?i iu iUi world. They are smart, active, have great pride upon the high uuti>|Uity of their religion and their institutions. The lire system of Zoroaster, himself a native of Ooroomaiah, and tne fire worship of the Magi, all had an object sti|>crior to that of Mohammedanism. And the change from the former to the latter was only from bad to worse. The Koran, indeed, reflects soma truth , but only such as is stolen from Scripture; and it is a (assport to the abominations of the system ss n w hole, That otherwise noble, brave, genrrous, and chivalric people, aru the vilest on lb? earth with regard to their moral character; and in their social nnd political relations they are the most degraded and wretched on the face of this esrth. Our mission was to the Nestoriun Christians, and through them to reach thr Mohsmmedaes. But that little church wb* literally dead in ignorance eud moral depravity; trod] den down by Mohatnedantsin. Still there nop cat hope f? r that church; it has all the simplicity of thcChristiau church ?it discards image worship tnd auricular confession to pi iestsaa heartily as we do. The simplicity of character of thee# people unci their brotherly feeling to other Chi isturns renderul them easily accessible.
