We all Me, and feel, and hear, this aa an age of revolution?more eminently such than any preceding age. There is an illusion perhaps in looking hack upou former ages. Events contemplated at intervals of cen turies seem magnified, and approximated, whilst those which are nearer us, and their results, moke a weaker impression; but'how few life-times on earth have ever included more great revolutionary evonts than are in cluded in your life-time I Mr. Chairman, what can you not recall I 1 have not seen more than half your years, and what development* have i not seen of thi* progress 1 There is a revolution in every thing?in every place?it seems as if the wheols of timo were rushing onwards with renewed rapidity as thoy approach the finale onsummntinn. The progress of revolution in this age is tho progress of opinion. Revo lutions, in the shape of insurrection find war, the over throwing of thrones and dynasties,amount to nothing un less the new dynasty he the reign of opinion.* I say then, that tho revolution of the age makes nctiml progress "nly so far as tho force of cplninn makes progress. The power of revolution is to bo measured only br that of opinion?only as new idoas of God, life and liberty are Imprinted on the mindn of men. and carried out by I men, and incorporated in their Institutions. I think that to reflecting minds it must bo plain that the next great ' stage in the progress of opinion must he the assertion , among the nations of Christendom, of the dootrinn of religious freedom. Freedom is tho great thirst of man- ( kind in this age?the great yearning of tlio nations is for freedom ; they are struggling for it, longing for it, ready , to arm for it. The nations feel that civil liberty, social , liberty, the liberty of tho press, will bo useless without [ religious liberty?the element of vitality to them all. Yet the assertion of liborty has not yet taken the shape j of a demand for religious frcodom. Hence, in all j Itoman Catholic countries every attempt to circulate religions freedom proves abortive. One of the signs of , tho times throughout Christendom, is an increased de- j velopment of the spirit of enquiry, and the sensibility that characterizes the present period as distinct from the past, both hera, in Great Britain, and throughout Europe; and we may look confidently in oxpectation of the next ?tacc in the progress?now (lowly but legitimately ana surely going on?of the great idea of religious free dom; andwhen that shall be transplanted and fixed in the minds of men, It will take possession of governments and nations, and he incorporated deeply in their consti tution and the fabric of their laws. It is tho want of nil the various forms of freedom, and abo\e all of religious freedom, that creates that obvious fact of Roman Catholic countries continually disgorging as it were, their superabundant misery and paup?r population into the I'rotestant countries of the world ; and the dis tress and misery found in the latter proceeds from the fact that it is transmitted from tho former, and the lilierty they enjoy attracts those who have been oppicssed by despotism. Hence it it that emigration sets with a strong cunentfrom Catholic into Protestant conntrius, Eng land, which has such an amount of misery in her own bosom, sees it multiplied and aggravated constantly by the crowd* of paupers from that green Isle, which for 000 years she has governed with despotism she would not and lira herself. W a contemplate her tali, and 1m1 that wa have no greater danger to feai here than from the musses . that pour from the Catholic countries of the old world. I It in a danger we must meet-it U one I would not iwerve | from but Trust to the God of our father* and of the Bible, to carry u? through. So iu Switzerland, in Geneva, tho I cradle of the reformation itself, is endangered fiom the Romisti countries of Europe. The paupers ol these are crowding into it because of the superior happiness found iu tlie light aud liberty which has attended the rcforma tion The simple principle lying at the foundation olI thi* happiness, is tho right of private judgmeut; it it tho pnn cijiu of Protestantism. The gospel, too. tells mon to ex ercise tlicir private |juderaent, when it tells them to repeutand believe ; it culls them to a spiritual religion, and calls them to exorcise their minds : and every reu nion that is uot one of mechanical performance one of beads aud scapularios, must rest ou tlie njrht and duty ot private Judgment. This Is the true wav of serving God, of kdowiug, and apprehending him with an evo ol faith. Now, sir, it is to the assertion of this principle that we of this society stand pledged ; and it is well that among tho assembly gathered here there should be one stauding out from the rest?the standard and emblem the great Christian embodiment of the light and duty of man to judge for himself. It Is right that there should bo in this American assembly of ( hristian cntcrprixe. a proof and token to show forth this idea of universal religious freedom. How thenaro wo to act in order to promote religious freedom ? Not by promoting revolu tion in the shape of physical force ; uot by going into plots and conspiracies; it is not our vocation there is unother sort of men who deal in this ; it is not the S?n,u* of Protestantism?it is tlie felicity of I rotestantism, that it it incapable of acting by such machinery as this. And our friends hore, who may be taking notes to transmit an account of this meotiag to tho Court of' J*?"'* take down, that we admit full and freely, that wo pro claim it as our glory, our inca]*city for that kind af action by which the Jctuits achieved their success. We act openly. We are to act solely by argument and the diffusion of ideas. It is a fair means lo read God s book^ We trust that as God commands all men to repent. It is the privilege of all men, and their duty, to know by the rhoico of their own minds, the ?ait and stupendous manner in which God has enforced hit commands. This is the idea we wish to inculcate at the propitious time. Now, when the clouds are gathering blacknost-whcn ere long they may burst overturope in flames of military I violence; it it the time for our objects to be carried out; i aud I wish to leave impretsed on your inindt that the_ timot now patting are thoso for scattering the seeds ol opinion, that they may vegotate and spring up in the minds of those nations, and by and by produce then fruit. The speaker went on to describe the critical state of the peace of Kurope-tho war that it <zoalingeoi:on the death of Louis Phillippe-the flame that Uwady to bunt forth in Ireland, and the new course of Lnfclish policy in tranquility the latter b>friendly Romo-from all which he argued that the Christian Alliance was to encounter the foe, and that at once. Mr. Kiax, of Boston, after a fow preliminary remarks, said he proposed to answer the quostlon what was the Christian Alliance considered in its spirit and objects 7 The Christian Alliance was not a creator,but a creature? not a cause, but an effect. He had no doubt but various feelings were stirring within the hearts of those in that house. Few had yet become animuted with the spirit ol the Christian Alliiuce ; they had not yet fully imbibed the feelings which resulted in its organization ; nnd standing there to speak to those assembled that evening, he was reminded of the time when thousands gatherod on the banks of that noblo river that formed the western boundary of their city, to see Fulton's discovery j when despite Its intrinsic worth, many a curious gaze told o! the Uttle faith they had in that achievement ot tun human intellect. The Christian Alliance results from thin fool ing, that wo cahnot live andsoe tho human tpiat crushed under despotism any longer; we cannot sit down uiujer our own vine and fig tree, and see the richest co?uu;ie of the world perishing for lack of spiritual food- * he Christian Alliance is the result of the conviction that it cowardly, unmanly, and impolitic, to lit still and open our bosomt to the deadly foe of lU>mo?to see our dearest inititutiont swept away without return iulf to Homo tho compliment. (Applause.) What is the Christian Alliance ! It is tho expression of our fidelity to Protestantism, our love of li berty, of unity and Christ-like chanty?our love of spiritual liberty and our hatred of despotum. It means to put in appropriate action the members ol the Alliance and all Christians against spiritual despotism in its spirit and origin, its outward manifestation and cotne nuences. There are three forma of spiritual despotism, toleration, arrogance, and uhity.. 'r?l??u?n '* dc"" potism. What do you mean by toleration ? Why, to let you think. Let me think ? I may, my Lord Itishop of London?I thall think. I abhor the spirit that lets me think, and I worship God in a distenting chapel. (Ap plause ) It it despotism to talk of toleration in religious affair*, and we have embodied our viewt in thit voung and flourishing inititution; because, if right, it will stand ?if not, let it go to the winds. Tho same we say of ar rogance. This Christian says, " we have ecclesiastical authority, or better mon than you." One says they are ol the apostolic succession?one prides himseir on bap tism ? but the freeman will as soon go to the conventicle as to the Cathedral. We ?bhor arrogance in any man or body of men ; and we abhor too, Sir, the boasted unity ol the church. The perversion of that sweet and blessed name is oue of the crying sins of the age AVhat is the church 7 It is the fullness of him that filleth all the earth.

Behalf of the Aonertean Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, at tit* Broadway Tabernacle, May Uth. This meeting was culled by the board of direc tion, for the purpose of improving the opportunity, which the large number of lite clergy and laity from abroad, in attendance on the various anniversaries, presented of circulating through the country mis sionary intelligence, and of awakening in the com munity, an interest in the atfuirsof the society. The Tabernacle was well liiled, and the audieiice ap peared to take a lively interest m the proceedings. At 10 o'clock, A. M., the Hon. Theodore Fre linghnysen, President of the Board, took the chair; i and the axerciscs commenced with prayer, by the | Kev. Dr. Beecher, of Cincinnatti. The Rev. Dr. Aiixstuomu, one of the Secretaries, then read a statement of the operations of the Board > during the last year. The past year, said the Secre-; tary, has been an eventful one in the history of our | missions in Western Asia: the opi<osition which has been manifested by the Turkish government; the : many obstacles it has thrown in the way of a dis semmination of the gospel truth, have been, to a great extent, withdrawn. The Sultan has destroyed, by his religious toleration, the fundamental maxim of the Koran. We have now facilities there for building up the waste places, which, with the bless ing of God, we are determined to improve. The mission to the Nestorians is abandoned. Dr. Grant, the intrepid pioneer of the mission, died gf fever, in 1844; he had labored long and faithfully, and now is enjoying an exceeding great reward. We had to cantenu with fearful odds in our mission to that peo ple. The Greek Patriarch and his brothers, with the ; Catholic priesthood, backed by the political influence of France, at the Persian Court, were all marshalled j against our missionaries. In Syria, there has not been much done. Our missionaries, however, are preaching, and die people learning that the truth as I it is in Jesus, will set tnc nations tree. The mission at Jerusalem has been transferred to Beyrooth. We have evety reason to be satisfied with the fruits of : this mission; whole Greek families, in the face of ; the bitterest persecutions, have embraced Protestant- | ism, and I rejoice to say, remain faithful to theirpro- i fesston. The most bitter antipathy seems to exist in the minds ol the unconverted Greeks against the Protestant doctrine. The Bible is not allowed to be read, and in many ways the Greek Church shows it sell' a fitting coadjutor with the papul hierarchy in the work of oppression. The spiritual existence of the Armenian Church is not healthy?we have, how ever. some native teachers there, who are effecting much good, and lite demand for the Bible in increas ing, in face of Uic most determined opposition. In Constantinople, so muny attend the mission church that the edifice can scarcely hold them, and once a i week prayer meetings are held in the city proper, I by native teachers, and this is in Constanti uikile, the metrojiolis of the Moslem world. | Tiie mission on Jabon river, in West Africa, is a most fruitful field of Christian labor, and soon an | avenue will be opened to the dark and almost most unknown region in the centre of Africa, where Christians will have on opportunity of extend ing the blessings of religion. This mission has sus tained a serious loss in the death of Mr. Griswold. There wus nothing of importance from South Africa. Tile Secretary then went into a detail of the opera tions of the Board in llindostan, showing the pros perous condition of the missions there, and observ ing in conclusion, that their agencies there should be increased at least an hundred fold. In Ceylon, the indication of the downfall of idolatry' is becoming more and more distinct from month to month. Our mission*, ies there are sending home loud cries for hel,>, and the prudential committee eurnestly desires to anywer the cry. Nothing particularly interesting has been received from Siam. The unfriendly aspect which tiic local authorities of Borneo wore to wards tiiemi.^iouaries ij entirely changed. This is | owirvj the interposition of the noiii.- government. It ulibrdfc uj much pleasure to state that the Dyuk mission ia in a tno^t flourishing condition. The Ciiiue. e vv_t;.t books seni, and the word taught, far beyond our ability to su;yly. We have two mission aa.-s in llong Kong, and one in Amoy; the last is of the. Reformed Dutch Church, and labored formerly with grer.t faithfulness in Borneo. The Board strong ly desire to form a third mission on the Northern Coast, and we ought to send out at least twenty more missionaries. In the pastoral care of large churches, the missionaries have to depend ma terially upon the native assistants ; they have proven themselves, faithful and competent. In many of the villages, the converted Chinese are builcfintj substantial school houses, and some of them support their own churches. One of the churches raised fur that purpose $125, the very first quarter they met. No intelligence of moment has reached us from the Oregon mission. The aspect of the mis sions among the aborigines of our country generally is most favorable. The great difficulty missionaries tind in inculcating the truth, is the avarice and wick edness among professing Christians. lie would sav, in justice to the Indian character, that the Che rokres and the Choctaws in poiut of morality, ?.Vc., borhood. A mission to the Gjjbbeway Indians has been established and is aiiecting much. And yet, although we have done all we could do, and we have elfected much,how many have gone without warning to the Isuid of silence and darkness, and passed un sanctjlied to the bar of God and the retributions of eternity! If we look only at what has been done, we see milch to call for thanksgiving and praise?but it we consider what has beenleft undone, we feel that we have scarcely entered 011 the mighty work; that we are not halt awake to its vastness and its amaz ing importance. Tin the domestic department of the operation of the Board, there are indications of an increase of the missionary spirit in the Christian community for which it acts. The numbers of young men in cur Theological Seminaries, who profess to have consecrated their lives to the publication of the gospel among die heathen, is much larger than it was twelve months ago, and the prospect of obtain ing un adequate supply of laborers for the foreign field, is fairer than it has been any previous time since the faltering of the churches, in 1837, exerted so disatrous an influence on those who were look ing forward to this work. The finances of the Board are more prosperous than they were last year. The receipts of nine months of the financial year, commencing on the 1st of August, 1844, and closing on the 30th of April, 1846. were $185,000, exceeding those of the corres ponding period last year, 821,315. The amount thus received in the nine months that have elapsed, is less by $13,000 than the appropriations for the same pe riod. If the remaining quarter of the annual year shall show un increase on the corresponding quarter of last year in the ratio Uiat has been realized thus far, the Board will be free from debt ut the close of its financial vear on the 31st of July. In order to accomplish this, the receipts of the remaining quar ter must average $26,300 per month. The Board ha? now under its care 26 missions, with 600 laborers, including native teachers. We have 95 missionary stations, and 639 free schools, containing about 30,000 pupils, and some boarding schools and seminaries in a flourishing condition.? Wc have 15 printing establishments, which have printed about fifty millions of pages inHl languages, not including the English, nnd there are twenty-six churches of converted heathen with 26.000 members in full communion, under the supcnntcndancc of die Missionaries sent out by the Board. Dr. De \Vtrv th^n addressed the meeting instead of Dr. W yokotrof Albany, who had been invited to address the meeting, but did not attend. His re marks had reference to the necessity of action, Arc., Ilev. S. Ht tcujmos, of the mission at Madnis, who, alluding to the inativ trials, A c., which await the missionary in the field of his labors, said that ihe missionary receives a call from Christ to go and preach llie gospel, and he goes forth nothing doubting, with i?erils by land and perils by sea before him, and though the heathen harden his heart and perish re fusing the tender of salvation, he knows that he has discharged his duty and will receive his reward.? Immediate success is not the expectation of the mi "nonary; he is content to labor in the hope of ultimately seeing his exertions blessed to the salva tion of the perishing heathen. A missionary who ha? iuhoii d for thirty years among the destitute of foremu countries, hus said that he considered him self ajnpiy n-paid if he hud only a hearing at first. If the millenary leaves his home, his friends, his early associations, and all that is hear and dear to him. to Ubor in the pestilential clime of India?to work himself out, he surely has aright t > "xiiect dial you will sit't tin him with your pr*>era and property ?ilist in ui" you will sow your s?en and in the ev. you \> ill not withhold your hand. At first tho Hindoos would not listen tu the word of God; now th^y p.iy for Christum teaching, and many e.fthtm ire training th<tir children in the way they shnuid >;<?, and \vii?n they are olJ they will not depart Iroiu it. Is not this mceets ! The Bitdimin priests wield an iron sceptre over the people. In one district, containing a |>opiilauon of one million, there are 16,000 Brahmins, 500 attend ant Brahmins, and 2,000 bayaderes, engaged in their religious ceremonies. Tne amount expended by Christians for secular puij>o*e*,i8 altogether too dis proportioned to the amount given to promote the compare favorably with Americans cause of Christianity. That is not the case with the Hindoo; iheyuive largely of their etfects to advance tlie cause of their god. It is a common occurrence to see #2,000 sjient in celebrating an ordinary festi val ; and it is said that one million of dollars was expended ill the erection of a Hindoo temple. One mail in Hindustan gave one million nnd a half of dollars to spread Brahman ism. 1 have myself seen between thirty and forty cart-loads of money pass through the street on its way to sunport heathenism. In short, when I look at the small number in the field?the cold support given them?the want of spirit nmong Christians, and the nature of the ob- , stacles with which we hava to contend, 1 almost wonderhowwe have eflected so much. Aftersonie further remarks, Mr. Hutching's called upon the Church to arise and take possession of the land in the name of Uieir King?to give liberally, us God may have pros|>ered them?and idolatry would be abolished, and God's name glorified among men. After the singing of the following hymn in which the whole audience joined? Behold, the mountain of the Lord In latter days shall rise ; Shall tow'r above the meaner hills, And draw the wond'riag oyos. To this the joyful nations round \nd distant tribes shall flow ; "Ascond the hill of God," thoy cry, And to his temple go. The beams that thine on Zion'i hill Shall lighten every land ; The King that reigns*in Zion'* tow'r*, Shall all the world command. Come thon, O come from every land To worship at his shrine ; And walking iu the light of God, In holy boauty shine. Rev. J. Todd, of Pittsfield, Mas*., addressed tho meet ing, and offered a resolution on the subject of the reci procating influence that Foreign and Home Missions had on ono another. He was, ho said, sure the audience would be sorry to see him at thin time, when they knew that he was taking tho place of Dr. Beecher, who was not able to address them in consequence of his being in a weak state. [Here I)r. Beecher aroso and *aid, he pre sumed there was some mistake on the subject, as it was the first he knew of it, but he presumed it was all right.] Mr. Torid continued, by baying, that he hoped the time might come when ho should b.i too old to officiate,if with that time his ahsenre should be regretted as his venera bio friend's was, and his place honored us his was. The compliment of culling on him was paid to Massachusetts, and not to him. The State had reason to he proud, for various tiling*, and he hoped that they would ho increas ed. The position of the gentleman at home was peculiar to the region where he nwelt The audience were doubt less aware that Berkshire contained the highest land in Massachusetts, and the iron horse had to cliuib 1200 feet before reaching the altitude from whence they imagined they could see a great way, and they could sea the beau tiful mountains and valleys, and the pure streams, and in hale the fresh air. Sometimos it was interesting to truce out the spot where individuals were born, and mark the peculiarities of their early days; and old Berkshire has three children whom she lores as much as heart can love, and the first of them was the Home Missions; this, the oldest child, was born there; and before any other was organized iu the laud, and there it still exists, and oven occasionally sends down its tribute here ; the second was the olilest Bible Society in the laud; it was born there aud there it ntill exists, and it also sends its tribute here. But the brightest of all was the Foreign Mission Society, and since the time that 9. J. Mills consecrated himself beside the lloosack river, ami by his movement gave riso to tho Berkshire Association of Ministers, which in turn gave rise to a more general association of ministers and to this Board, (and he may be excused, perhaps,for looking down from his heights,) aud feeling that God has especially honored them?they dwell alone amidst their lulls and waters, but they arc emblems of the water of life. We claim not to be thanked; to God be all the thanks; we are honored enough iu laboring for him. He was not surprised that a spirit of love and honor for Missionary enterprise should be developed in Massachusetts?in that State there were, he was going to say thousands, but there are score* of praying mothers aiid pious fathers, who have consecra ted their sons, and also their daughter*, to the work of preaching Christ to the heathen. Cevlon, Bombay, Siam. Africa, the prairies aud log-cabins of our own far West, bore testimony to tho work of sous reared with prayers and tears, Tficrewcrc widowed mothers is Massachu setts, who have had their beloved sons slaiu in the exer cise of theii calling;slaughtcrcd by disgustingcanuibal*; and yet those same mothers have daily prayed for the ! mercy of (rod to be extended to the benighted heatheu. In his own congregation he had mothers who hail sons in various parts of the world,and in our western prairies, and daughters also,and looking abroad to China and India to the many benighted souls there,wandering in the ways of darkness, though they maybe allowed to feel thatflome and Foreign Missions were the same in love. Still we must consecrate all we can have to Foreign Missions.? Drs. Beecher and brethren, from the West, gave account of a young giant iu its cradle, and one which promises to increase in strength every year. They said they wanted the New England Primer and School lnstructors;that the Romish faith is there, aud that its thrcateniugs will soon be heard in tones of thunder uot to be mistaken. These poiut out that we must sustaiu Home Missions,aud while we love both home and foreign, we wish we had ono hundred fold more assistance to bestow on them. The Homo Missions we are anxious to main tain for three reasons ; our kindred have gone west, and are increasing every yeur in their removals to that part, and wc want tho Home Missionary to preach Christ to them. Secondly, wo wish through the instrumentality of the Gospel of I hrist, which can savo it, to extend salvation to the country. Thirdly, wo want the whole country and the strength of the nation to engage in the work of salvation, and wc must have it to enable us to perform our task, which we cannot do, unless the whole country is baptized in Christ. A stranger voice yester day said, that they wore not Saxons. We claim to he Saxons, and there was a great destiny marked out for us : time was when Caucasus contained the Saxon raco, una when they came down and thundered at the gates of Rome, the Human Senate looked in their maps for the region whence came these invaders, hut could not find it. Still, insignificant as they thought them, they hurled the proud liomans Irom their place of power and empire, and proceeded in their march of tyranny and rapine tri umphantly. Their gods worn idols, Thor and Woden, from whoso names urn derived our words Thunder and War. These were their gods, but on the advent of Chris tianity, they beeaiuo people of the Lord, and their habi tation has become one of the brightest spots in the world. He w ould wish tho stranger to go home, and say that we too are Savons, and that our only rivalship with our mother country is, which shall carry the Cross furthest into tho dark recesscs of heathen lands. He had heard the variety of sect talked of; but wo be long to on# church, that of the living God. Our race is Saxon, nud our only weapon* truth and love, which servo us to embrace the whole family and bring them to Christ. Ho long as we arc engaged ns we are, there can be no diileiciK'e between home aud foreign missions ; their objccts are reciprocated, and wo must be engagea in both. Whoever thought that when the Apos'les were despatched on their missions,that they loved Judca less J I Who ever heard that enlarging the heart contracted the soul. He wishc ! his friends from the country when they returned, not to say merely, that they had attended such and such meetings'. They must go'and feel thev had been near the Saviour ana his Cross ; that from this day honceforth, they had assumed a heavy responsibility'; they must go aiid iusrribo on tho family altar, that " none liveth for himself alone," aud henccforth adopt the sentiment of living for Christ only. Dr. Bekcher, of Cincinnati, rose and said, that God's ways were not those of men, but they never failed, and always in the end showed that they were what true phi losophy would have taught us as the true ways, but no subject has shown u? more the supromncy of'God, than the* order in which he has opened the dispensation of missions and revivals in religion. He recollected tho origin of all these dispensations, of nil these concentra tions of God's views towards the world. He is old now, and in his day, perhaps, many of his hopos of /ion may not be cousummatcu. When the subject of Foreign Missions led to the organization of this board, the com mon sentiment was, charity must begin at home; that they could not, under pres*ure of the n<iw settled coun tries, aud their own vacancies in tho church, nlTonl to send out ministers: but had they followed out that idon, they would have been mistaken; it ws very easy now to sers why the dispensation oi God'o Provldonco com merced with foreign missions; it reminded him of tho anecdote ol Columbus breaking Ihe egg before the courtiers. Tho levercnd gcntloinmi went on say, that ? spirit of familiarity with sacred things, endangered their being treated with contempt, nnd that the human inind while engrossed with little things, wanted nn orb to enrry up sou is out of the familiar daily observations. All the great institutions of modern days, were elemen tary parts of (iod's plan, originated inspirit, inspired by the'Norcign Missions. The shock flrst struck in Eng land, anil he remember* of the tidings awakening such thrilling feelings, that every heart tqsponded to them; having got the fire awakened tip, then came out the sa tellitcs of the Bible and other societies, shot from the gronter body, as the Infidels say tho earth was shot out, and made God's plan perfect, liespecting the feeling of the endangering of the church nt home, he trusted suffi ciently in l iod's plan, to think it the wisest. At a speech made bv him at n convention he attended in England, in favor of sustaining the western colleges which hnd fall en into diOicultics, he ha<l reprobated the idea of aban doning Foreign Mission*. He insisted God's plan was wisest to take caro of them, and if they think they cant nllord to contribu'.e to Home Missions, they must keep them where they arc; the Foreign Missions haro made, and are making! the church a millennial church, and we fear not the west will be behind hand in supporting them with zeal. If we get enough to keep our heart* whole, we shall he enabled to shout our vlctorie* to the whole world. Mr. SrAt'LDirvn, a missionary from Ceylon, *aid that when he mine this morning he had been asked what he was going to say. He answered, whatever thr rest left nn said; but they had left nothiug; and that as they bad men tioned the u orld, his theme should be the world. He ?is most happy to find the Foreign Missionary Society the ' sun in the moral world, and for it he praised the l.ord, and If they nil felt as he did, he would, with pleasure, take the next ship and go back to his work The com- 1 mand of l.luist, " Go teach all nations," firsi movod him to the work, and every man in the Church enters under the positive command of Christ to evangelise *'l nntion*, and that was the confession of laith in old times. He i would like all ministers to preach from these word* in the Bible, vir: the supplicating prayer of Christ tore- ' member hi* little flock, "as thou hast sent me Into the ! world so have I sent the n.'

The g.mtloiniacuatiauo 1 at some length in a mostaxsellent a t Iress, an I was followed by The Kev. Ur.THonnot, who said: With mingled feelings of embarrassment a id ple&mro I rise to 033upv this position at this meeting. Most gladly would I alt hero, sir, to ruceivo the oouawls an 1 instruction of thoso honored fathers. I canuot hare arty tliinj to say to them, or to this nulioii'.-u in their presence. whiah should claim your attention}auj vat, air, it al'jris me some re lief to reflect, that thou rli those fathers may not be iu structolby the word-, ol' a youth, they may he gratified to learn that soma 01 the w]>irit that has burue 1 and glow ed in their breaita for half a century, has b.son transmit ted to those of th?? second an 1 thir l geuoratioa. It waa my satisfaction, sir, a fow ove.1iu.51 ago, to aldreia the American Homo Mi*<ion?ry Society in this house, and the venerable father from tho West, who has spolteu thia morning, was ploasod to say,''that although he desired to enter into his rest a> soon as God calle.i him, yet, when he saw the spirit that showed in young men, he felt young again, uuJ desired to live a little longer to mingle in their labor. H'j knew not why that spirit of renewed youth caino over him. sfTwelvn years ago there waa a revival of religion iujthe Fifth Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia, wliere I, along with some other young men, became a hopeful subject of the graco of Ood. At that tiuio this honored father was on hi i way to tho West, and camo to tell us that he had taken fire woil of all his peo ple and brethren, and was golug'to lay his bonss on the other side of the mountains in the service of his Mastor. 1 felt then that ho was entitled to his rest, but I thank Ood he has notgono yet. I thought of the inspiration that lad him?of tho hnavenly broath that ho breathed, and it waa his own broath and spirit 1 inhaled, that I breathed tho other night, and I thank Ood that I have another oppor tunity this morning to catch another spark of that divina lire, and wish myself, and aspire to the honor of boing, another satellite, to roll round that glorious ball. Sir, wa young mon cherish these institutions, and will take care ol them. Our Berkshire brethren shall not be neglected in this city ; we will take care of them, and as many more as you choose to send us. it was suggested, at the closing of tho anniversary week last y jap, that the clos ing of these meetings should be of a character tender and solemn ; that we should not go as from a political assem bly, but as under the eye and in the presence of lieaveu. It is desirable for tho churches in which these fathers minister over the lcngtti and breadth of the land; and now, in a few words, I will strive to describe a few of tho thoughts that have occurred to me here. My tboughta have arisen from this assembly to another, of far greater interest than the objects that surround us here. When have wo most of the spirit of heaven, if not when wo draw nearest to Ood, in the closet 1 This work can bo perfected only by heavenly agency. 1 must say 1 waa delighted with the idea of the last brother, who spoke of a heavenly telegraph, by which we make the most direct and rapid communication between that other world and this. No sooner the Christian missionary, in the midst of his trials and troubles, prays to heaven for relief?no sooner is it uttered, than it is heard in heaven and an an swer on its way back. In this cause we are in communi cation with tho heavenly world. The head of all la living, and controlling all for the promotion of His cause. Think, too, ol the vast body of the blessed that are ia sympathy with us in that world. We have heard to-day of the death of our beloved missionary ; and does his soul not glow with more celestial fire as he contemplates tho cause from those loftier heights, and sees air its trials and disappointments until tho end 1 We have learned that the beloved Dr. Orant was called away since our last meeting. When he was last among us, I was de lighted with a remark he made to me. When I observed to hiin that he would stop and give us an account of tho vast and strange field he had been laboring in?" O, no," said he, " 1 cannot take time for that?I must begin again in my field, and take my station on those mountains, and lilt my voice and c ry for help ; and if I find you don't then help me, and cotne to me, I will come to you." Ho went back to see his beloved flock devoured with raven ous wolves, and to find his own grave at the back of thoao mountains. Vet he has redeemed his pledge. 1 remem ber the words of tho patriot?" My country is lost?my people arc gone !" And Dr. Graut is gone. Yet he la not. I see nim in tttapojklissful regions where his visage shines with clearer radtaQKo?where bis eyes see ua with the clearer sight of ah angel. Oh, the sympathy that rings through the heavenly world, responsive to the aspi rations of our hearts in such an assembly as this, linking us with heaven iu its results !
