We expect, every hour of every day, highly important intelligence from the seat of war on the Rio Grande, with the result of the operation, of the Mexican army against Gen. Taylor. The greater portion ofthe public believe that General Taylor will hold his own, if not thnuh the Mexicans. A battle is almost certain.

Gratu to subscribers. The War Declared. It Will be seen by the proceedings in Congress in this day s paper,.that the Senate, on Tuesday ' passed the bill received from the House, providing or an army of filty thousand men and appropri ating ten millions of dollars, by a vote of fifty to wo. All branches of the government, the execu tive and legislative, have now recognized, most overwhelmingly, the existence of the war between the United States and Mexico, which has broken out on the Rio Grande. The country i, now at war with a neighboring republic, and we must make the best of it. The blundering and imbecility by which this state of things has been brought so suddenly upon the country, in the midst of peace and prosperity, may create a great leelmg ot dissatisfaction in the minds of sensible people ; but we must call forth a spirit of patriot ism, capable of ovetwhelming all other senti ments, in order to prosecute this war to a success ful termination, and bring about a speedy peace, favorable to the interests ofhumanity com merce and civilization. All admit the imbecility of the Executive; but that is not the question now. Let us forget it, 111 matters of deeper mo ment. Wherever the recent events on the Rio Grande have reached, a most overwhelming spirit of pat riotism has been called forth?in public meeting* ?n the legislative bodies-and every means have been adopted for the purpose of reinforcing the army and prosecuting the war with vigor and vengeance. In this city and in the North, there *eem* to be hole feeUng a,,d a want of proper en ihusiasm. There is even a nucleus of opposition in existence, and that opposition assumes a black shade, and springs partly from the abolitionists and other ultra people,who would like to see a dissolu tion of the Union, in order to carry their princi ples into operation. Indeed, if we look at the votes in Congress, it will be seen that the principal opposition to the organization of the army of 80,000 men, sprung from Giddings and such like public men, who have ridden the abolition ques tion to death. With the exception of this small fac lion this small cloud of sheer niggerism-with its erroneous views, without common sense, not ap preciating the spirit nnd destiny of this great re public?the rest of the country, in all directions appears to 1* united in repelling the Mexicans' and m chastising Mexico herself, up to the v,-rv capital. 3 With regard to the merits of the great question between Mexico and the United States, we have no doubt Mexico will endeavor to call to its aid the interference of Europe. We saw the attempt made during the annexation of Texas; and the same diplomats who made the attempt then are sull busy in the same business, in Mexico and in the United States. A great outcry will be made by the opponents of the United States, that this t ou,raged the principle, of all justice in R.? P?? s,'ndinK ?,,r army to the ' 1 e- Th.'se arc all 'accomplished facts and are not worthy of attention at the pr se i Wl.otl?.-,i?h, or wronVT. . deed is done and cannot be recalled.

Let the tyrants at Europe rave?they may tremble, before this crisis on the Rio Grande may be elated. In the meantime, our government ought at once to organize a force sufficient to protect the immense amount of American property now atloat. No time is to be lost, for the treacherous Mexicans will probably avail themselves of every opportunity to depredate on America property at sea. Bai> 1'rosfkct?Some Probability of the Block. *DKor New You Harbor.?It will be in the recol lection of onr readers, that it was stated some time nince, that the two Mexican steam vessels of war, the Montezuma and Guadaloupe, were sold to some English mercantile houses in Vera Cruz. This created a good deal of astonishment at the time, in view of the hostile demonstrations of Mex ico towards the United States. This report is now ascertained to have been without foundation.? I The vessels have been mortgaged to English mer chants at Vera Cruz, and the consideration money has been employed in fitting out the present expe dition to Matamoras. Meantime, the vessels are still under the control of the Mexican government and have proceeded to Havana. What next! Their destination is scarcely proble matical. Nothing can be easier than to blockade the port of New York, and seize all the shipping that approaches or leaves it. The vessels will probably go round by Bermuda, where they will take in coal and ammunition. They are already provided with four or five paixhan guns each, and can easily be furnished with whatever other ne cessaries they may require. There is no vessel of war in our harbor fit to cope with them. In fact, our whole shipping is at their mercy. What will our merchants do, in this emergen cy? The advent of these Mexican war vessels, may be looked for sooner than desirable. In this critiis, the Executive, whose vacillating and un wise policy, has brought all those evils so sudden ly on the country, should be besieged with remon strances to put our harbor in a state of defence, although we fear that would be a difficult matter, as there are no vessels at hand, able to cope with these Mexican war steamers. The Princeton?the only vessel of available force to oppose them?has gone to join the Gulf squadron. Thus, the greatest commercial city is left utterly naked and defenceless. Some effort is absolutely necessary, to ward off the probable approach of danger. Let our merchants move in this matter. In reference to this important subject we have procured the following official correspondence :? Nr.w York, 13th May, 1840. E. K. Collin*, Esq. :? Sib :? At h meeting of the Board of Underwriters this morn ing, 1 was directed to aik of you the publication of the letter received by you from the Hon. James Buchanan, communicating (the substance of the treaty between the United States and Spain In relation to privateers or let ters of marque. I am, very respectfully, yours J. BALDWIN, Secretary. Washington, 11th April, 1846. Mv Dear Si* Inconsequence of our ' conversation a few minutes since, I think it proper to inform you, without delay, that our treaty with Spain of the 30th October, 1796, contains the following article, still in force : " Art. 14.?No subject of his Catholic Majesty shall ap ply for, or take any commission or letters of marque, for arming any ship or ships to act as privateers against the said United States, or against the citizens, people or in habitants of the said U. States, or against the property of any of the inhabitants of any of them, from any prince or State with which the said United States shall be at war. " Nor shall any citizen, subject or inhabitant of the said United States apply for, or take any commission or letters of marque, for arming any ship or shins to act as priva teers against the subjects of his Catholic Majesty, or the property of anv of them, from any prince or State with which the said king shall be at war. And if any person of either nation shall take such commissions or letters of marque, he shall be punished as a pirate." Yours, very rusi>cctfully, JAMES BUCHANAN. Edward K. Collins, Esq. By this it will be seen that any Spaniard who may be caught privateering under a Mexican letter of marque, can be treated as a pirate, and should be, by drum-head court-martial, hung at the yard-arm as soon as captured. What are the provisions of our treaties with France and Eng land ? Can any one tell 1 The Magnetic Tei.egrafh and the Newspaper Press.?One of the most singular features in the pre sent crisis of our foreign affairs^and the tremendous excitement consequent thereon?an excitement that must increase daily, while we are nt war with Mexico?is the rapid transmission of intelli gence to this city, by the magnetic telegraph. Every important item of news th/it has transpired witWthe last ten days, in relation to our army in Texas, and proceedings at Washington, has been published in this city by the Herald, and one or two other similar establishments, in a few hours after it reached Washington. Thero ihave been as many as three or four extras in one day issued from this office, during the past week, whenever any important intelligence arrival. The neighborhood of our office has become fee centre of attraction for crowds of citizens, wfto daily throng the vicinity of Fulton and Nassau streets, to learn the latest intelligence. By this enterprise on the part of ourselves, and one or two other cash papers, the interest of the public is kept alive, instead of being fliii?inisl??*cl. The greatest anxiety is manifested to learn, Rt the earliest hour in the morning, the news by the over-night mail; and our olfice is besieged by crowds during the day, anxious to learn the latest intelligence by the telegraph. Our circulation has consequently increased, and is increasing, to an unparalleled extent. But the case is different with the old humbugging journals down town. The effect of the early transmission of intelligence by the electric telegraph, has been to cut down their already limited circulation. It is no wonder that the respectable old ladies that conduct them are caterwauling and complaining. They are already so far lwhind the age, that every impetus given to the transmission of news, dtfttls a mortal blow to their lumbering existence. The telegraph is only extended to Philadelphia, and from Baltimore to Washington, and they already complain loudly. When the chain is uninterrupted between here and Washington,at is evident that those journals pers that spare no painsnor expense to furnish the public with the earliest intelligence, will increase in circulation and influence ; while those lazy, lumbering, sleepy Wall street journals, will bring to a miserable close their already too protracted existence. Serve them right. Meantime, we shall publish each day, whenever we receive news of sufficient importance to be communicated to the public, an extra, or half-a dozen extras, if necessary, giving, up to the latest moment, the intelligence received from Waihjngr ton and from the camp. This we will do, regard less of the enormous expen-e consequent on our exertions. Look out, then, for the extras. What's in the Wianl?We understand that or ders were received yesterday in this city, from the Wai^Department, countermanding the orders re cently issued for the four companies stationed in and around the harbor of New York, to proceed to the Rio Grande. What is the cause of this movement! Does the President apprehend the bombardment of New York! ami does he intend tolonvo those soldiers to man the batteries at Fort Hamilton, and other places! A few hours may explnin the mystery. P rom Bku/.e, Honduras.?By the Marin Gage, arrived last night, from the above place, we re ceived 111 -s of the (iatetu to the 2ftth April. There is no news of importance. From Mr. E. Fitz gillon, the editor of the who came pas senger in the M. (?., we gather the following:? Provisions were high and scarce; white pine timber was selling nt #38 per thousand feet; there was no shingles in the market.

Tuesday was A great day among the groups, of little children, to the number of some twenty thouanud and over, belonging to the Sunday schooU'of New York and adjoining pUusM. Eight thousand litUe creatures, of both aexea, rote from their beds m the morning, ur.der the excite thfllL???r Rreal day of "f?le Anniversary;" and the part they were to perform, this day in the tE littleh,tU,t 81 SW Garden? n0 dotlLt filled lieir little hearts with big expectations and tremu lous excitement. There were several points of W 'CH,he iitUe ^1??* ?w*l?roi.,es of tins great j?ageantsy met together, eadtjuMler their an.M,/^# ?,?.!* t" ?P,P*' Pour,nK down from different and ill. :nt countries, all to meet at a given time at one wuhxere he contemplated on a riven . l?''e hattle to hit astonished enemies. Thus, the little troops marched from all points of the city, and at the hour of three o'clock, there they all were concentrated at one point, more than eight thousand in number, nearly filling the great and v?iiU s *P*ce ?'" Castle Garden. Such a nub-bub of little voices?such a multitude of interesting little faces ?such "a getting up stairs," is only to bo seen once in the year, on this occasion. It was an interesting coup <*'<**}? The voices of 8.000 children, with nearly a thou sand teachers, and some thousand visitors, united to 5ether in singing, produced an effect which cannot be escribed. Several gentlemen belonging to the society were on the platform to meet them. Prayer was made by Mr. Wyckon, of Albany; a brief address was also deliv ered by Mr. Livingston, of Brunswick, but in such an im mense space, and such a din and bur. of little voices, it was scarcely ]>ossiblc to hear what was said on the piat form. Se\ eral hymns were sung in boautiful style by the children; and, soon again, Broadway was teeming with the mass of youthful life, as the little crowds di verged ofl to their various quarters. At hali-past seven o'clock, the society met at the cen tral Presbyterian church, in Broome street Tho Rev Dr. Kerris, President, in the chair. Tho exercises were opened by prayer, bv Dr. Alexander ; after which ex tracts from the annu? report of tho society were read by Wm. H. Wyckoft, Esq., corresponding secretary. The report entered into a view of the labors and transactions of the past year, as related to the Sunday schools of this Union ; and showed many of the benellclal effects result ing from the institution. A committee, appointad for the purpose, had made a very extensive enquiry, and had so laras was possible, ascertained that generally among prisoners, in the various prisons, it is seldom, if ever the ' case that any pupils from Sunday schools, who have been for any time in this institution, are found the inmates of jails, when they gro w up. Four out of a hundred is the average, and of that four, one only who has permanently enjoyed the benefit of the Sunday school. One hundred and nine schools belonged to this Union-of these, ninety six had sent in their rcjwrts. In these schools there were nine hundred nnd eighty-three male teachers, one thou sand three hundred and twenty-three female teachers and twenty-two thousand the whole number of the infant classes. The report having been ended. The Rev. Dr. Davidson, of New Brunswick NcwJer sey. then addressed the meeting. He began, by obser vmg, that truth, however trite, is ever welcome No Ti?f? .? fx for handling the familiar subject of Sabbath school instruction, or for offering induco meats to renew the zeal of the weary. This themo ought to Ali us with pleasure; many associations are che rished round it A few years a*o a subject excited great attention, viz the advantages of Universal education-it was discussed everywhere with great spirit?it was an interesting theme. It was hopeJ to be a prophylactic against alT political evils. We were pointed to statistics to show its wonderful power, it was said "figures cannot u' Crime was shown to prevail more in countries where education was less extended. Those statements produced a great sensation upon the public mind and f Im! ?*,gr?nt 'mPetus, 10 the cause of common school education. But many began to question the influence of intellectual education; they found crime did not become less frequent,only its character was changed; it became perhaps less gross. The Bible and the spirit of protes tantism is the security of the country. When we find Uie w ord of Ood thftist aside, to make way for tho n.?'?Se delusions of infidelity, it is time to let tho Bible find a refuge in the Sunday Schools, when thrown out of other schools. It flu man for heaven. Enough has been done (or tt(e body. Scionce and the arts w ork for the body. They rob heaven of its light ning, and convert it into the messenger of mercantile princes. Oreat are those benefits in their place, but the interests of the soul are far more important. What can be compared to it, worth? What is a min profited if he Sun the whole world and lose his own soul P Save en, I implore you, the souls of the rising generation trom the second death. Do this by the means of Sunduy Schools. Progression must be ourmovement; "onward" our mot;o; annexation our political name. No imaginary line is to stop us, neither forty-nine nor fifty-four tortv? our line must go forth into all the earth, and the words of truth to the ends of the world. We must fight against the world. Unless the rising generation become instruct ed to revere the Scriptures and hallow the Sabbath day what is to be expected? About two hundred yoars ago the Highlanders were on a par with she Irish of Munster and Connaught. They wore both of ? .uSC * wf,re Panted by the Church of Scotland in the CelUc language,j and now no Jif. !?orc??,r,ler,ly th,Bn ;hem- At the same time the Irish had nothing done for them lathis way, and. alas! what are they? Grant Thorburn remarks wllat an im ProJ?I"e,Jl he found in the Irish woman, few educated in Sabbath schools turn out badly. 1 oik:* superintended lniii, I found some had Income members of the church some died in faith, some had gone western* none turned out badly. There is a necessity for more progressive movements, more zeal on the part of the church. There can bp no " masterly inactivity" for us. There is no ar IlfA*: bac\.n tl,a V pwoply T ne m,i?t not turn back, his motto must Ins "onward." Mr. Davidson concluded by moving that the report just read be adopt ed. which motion was unanimously agreed to o i,r- delegato from the American Sundav School Union, of Philadelphia, next addressed the meet ing This was not his place : it was in the attic story, with a pair of scissors, a pot of paste; there he would be at home. Once a boy came throwing stones at his fa ther s door, his father came out and asked him what lie -haro ' The boy said J mast bp some where, and if 1 went anywhere olsp, they would ask what I did there ? He regretted the absence of able men; he was no orater He wished the present excitement could be bottled ud and given to teachers when inclined to sleep a little too long on Sunday mornings. It is not so easy to make working men, as to make speeches ? it would be good if the former were more ijumdrous. As tq union it is a good thing but he thought it could qot at this moment be ef fected. We need mqre danger. We want the prop of othort shoulders, that is only got when danger draws men together It is heart roqding to think how much is to be done, and how few there are to do it Our movements must be more progressive. We stand ia sight of a large harvest, and stand wiUi our hands folded, debating il it shall be reaped with a sickle or a scythe, if carried in a cart with two or with four wheels. The influence of the New \ ork Sunday School Union is great?it is n tremen dous though an invisible influence : we owe it much Manchester owed its safety from being burned and SuCn in v Vhe ll?n,u?"cc of Sunday Schools. A ten dollar School Library was once sent from Williams burg to Illinois; there were ten houses only in the dW^rb5t rPl'g'S"? denominations there. The se books were read and produced an excellent mflu, j't! 1 what benenU you may confer' The conditioh of the Philadelphia Union is progressively im proving year by year. Our plan is to teach the Biblo, and it only, w hen we lodge one text of Scripture in the nund of a little child, we elevate that child immeasurably beyond hundreds of thousands of iu fellow-creatures IV e do a great deal by the publication of our little Sun day School paper, more perhaps than is done by lareer Vur.?hj?ct ?? to dye in the wool with Bit.le truth; that is, to imbue little children with it Judge jfcow. of quincey, Illinois, relates a conversation which Tie overheard betw^u hj? little boy eipht years of age, and another boy who was a Catholic The IitUe Catholic boy said, "well, now you'vogotthe 2SW-*?'1 "tfP0", JOU'U be picking at the Catholics ot .1, n0 ' iff1 . ,ttle "wc don,t want to pick at them, wp will sujiply them with Bibles." "Oh !" said the Cftholip boy 'i0u murdpr Mormons, but you never heard of Catholics doing so." "WKv I have re Ad " replied little Jiulge Snow, "I have read how they killed Jonjj Huss. "Pshaw," said the other, "that is riifhing but a Protoatant lw." Thfl little bay, however, hvlthp evidence in his hands, and his belief remained unshaken by the bold contradiction of his companion. This may show the value of circulating in the far West the in s true tire and useful little volumes for children, which are published by the Society. of Wchmond' Virginia, then addressed the meeting, and began by descanting at large upon the ?^'?hmg power ot earfv and (}rst improssio..s. They fopn the mou|ds of subsequent principles, and give a tone to the whole character for time and eternity. As slight events produce great effects, so earlv impressions nr? v*f ^'oni'hing results. The balla<l of the Bal>e in the Wtoods had a great impression upon Kirke White in sinft in iJ ?,h i 80 n-l k f1 ?> ron- f^nklin, Walter Boott, and others. 1 he books t^oy read in youth gave N?Aon played, wlfen a 'm V1 j1 f*"110" ,for? pwy thing, and he said in * hie he owed all to his mother. ITie influence of mothers by the impressions they give, is truly great? When General U sshington was a child he begged his mother eainestly to let him go to sea and be a sailor.? She refused. She promised to buy him something. She did, and bought him a pen-knife-that pen-knifp is now FL s i u Alt*Rndrif. Hi' another made him promise when she gave it, always to ob?y ^Wrio"i that promise afterwards he remem bered when in difflculty, and l.e did not aban don his couitry?the penknife was in his pocket, and he remembered his promise. This shows the importance of early impressions. Hannibal was influenced by earlv impressions. Roger Williams, who founded Provl dence, ami Dr. Doddridge, were influenced in alter lite J;?, impressions *0 John Wosle) , it the burning of his father's house at Eppworth, whan his lather knelt down and and prayed for his children who had bean saved Irom destruction, was thus influenced. The value of early impressions cannot be calculated. The work of the Sabbath Schools Is of infinite oon.e,,uenre!n the im pressions given to children by their infl.iinces. ' AnnlTtmurjr of the S?w York State Colo nisation Society. A meeting of this society was held on Tuesday evening at the Tabernacle, Broad way, Anson (J. Phelps, Ksq., presiding; which drew together' a very lull and deeply interested audience. We cannot omit to notice the excellence of the accommodations provided for the reporters of the public press. It is one evidence that their efforts to disseminate the proceedings of these deliberative bodies are properly appreciated. The Rev. Dr. Levins addressed the Throne of I Grace in a feeling and impressive manner.

There was an aged gentleman, named McKay, who was present at two or three ol their meetings, and who, it was supposed, would subscribe ? 100.000 to the capital stock, which was to have been jt'l,000.000. He was a Roman Catholic?[Let it be under stood there are good Roman Catholics, as well as Pro testants ] (Ureat applause.) The paper being drawn up, it was handed te him in full confidence that he, being a man of great wealth, would subscribe very largely; and they wished his name to head the list; he took the paper in his hand, and raising it above his head, imploied that God's curse might light upon that man'* hand who should affix his pame to such an instru ment The meeting dispersed, and the consequence was, that there never was a slave owner in all Ireland. (Con tinued applause. The Hon. Mr. Latrobe, of Baltimore, President of the Maryland Colonization Society of Maryland, was next presented to the audience, who, after giving an animated account of the efforts made use of by the Maryland Colo nization Society, and illustrating the benefits which would naturally'succeed still further and increased exer tions, gave way for the Rev. Mr. Parker, of Philadelphia, who spoke pointedly upon this subject, although the late ness of the hour was observable by a large portion of the audience, who became uneasy and began to retire. He said that it was a most difficult us well as a most glorious thing, to undertake the elovation of a degraded man; and urged oontinued and unceasing efforts for the final re demption of the slavo from the bondage of the master, through the interposition of the Colonization Society.? The audience was then dismissed. Twenty-First Annual Meeting of the Ameri can Tract Society. The American Tract Society held its twenty- | first annual meeting at the Tabernacle, ! yesterday morning. The house was very well filled, anil, as usual, there was a large proportion of the fairer part of creation?old, | young, pau(, beautiful, and interesting. The j usual number of country clergymen sat upon the platform, and the room had precisely the same appearance it has had oh these occasions during our recollection. A little after 10 o'clock, the meeting was organised: and in the absence ot the President?the Hon. Theodore Frelinghuysen? John Tappan, Esq. of Boston, was called to the chair. A prayer was then made by Rev. Dr. Mil ledoler, of the Reformed Dutch Church ; when, alter a few introductoiy remarks by the President, who stated that Mr. Frelinghuysen would be pre sent to-day at the meeting of the Bible Society, the treasurer's report for the year was read by Moses Allen, Esq.

Among them are Dr. Hopkins' admirable kx position of the Ten Commandments; Dr. Belcher's Anec dotes for the Family and Social Circle ; Jay's Christian Contemplated ; J. A. James' Pastor's Daughter; Dr. Ed wards' excellent and timely Sabbath Manual, No. 2, and Drelincourt's masterly discussion of the Teachings of Rome as compared with the Holy Scriptures, in French. There have been printed, during the year, 364,100 volumes; 4,924,000 publications; 116,173,000 pages?and circulated, 366,006 volumes: 6,158,898 publications: 123, 643,.">93 pages. Total circulation since the formaUon of the Socioty, 2.859,649 volumes, 84,122,133 publications, 1,667,696,401 pages. Twelve thousand copies of Baxter's Call have been printed in large,and twenty-one thousand in smaller typo, during the year; 33,000 of the Sabbath Manual: *28,000 volumes in German; 6,000 in French; 4,000 in Welsh. The Society's monthly newspaper, tho Jlmtricun Mttitngtr, has been enlarged, and has 40,000 subscribers. . ..... ? . . , It is gratifying to observe, that while the Society s volume circulaSon has been gradually increasing for a series oj years, Uie circulation of pamphlet tracts is not diminished. The average circufation of tracts for several years has been about thirty millions of pages. The grants of publications have exceeded those of for mer years by 3.000,000 pages. Members nnd directors havo drawn 3,830,260 pages; 26,874,986 pages have been forwarded to foreign ana home missionary stations and seamen's chaplains in our own and foreign ports, or scat tered along the lakes, canals and rivers, or distributed in Sabbatli schools,and Irom house to house by colporteurs, or by Auxiliary Societies. Colporteurs and agents have personally distributed nearly 18,000,000 of pages. The receipts for Uie year haye been $153,916, of which $32,784 aro the proceeds of sales. The douations ($71, 132) show an infcrense of $8,835 over tho previous year. Those received for colportago exceeded $24,000; for fo reign distribution $4,300. The expenditures have just equalled the receipt*, $133,916. Of this amount, $90,603 were paid for paper, printing, binding, copyright, engraving and revising) $15,000 remitted to foreign and pagan lands, and $31,000 expended for colportage, in addition to grants of books by colporteurs to the amount of $19,000. "The remittances <?f the American Tract Society, Bos ton, v*\oiUlt*>d to $24,419. Those of the Connecticut Branch to $4,756. Liberal remittances were received from many other branches and auxiliaries in different parts of the country. Colportage.?This mode of reaching the destitute has found favor with the chqst|an public, and continued to engage much pf the attention of the Society. It seems to loiuixe tho great idea of all Protestantism, which is 1 no mere dead resistance to error, but an active propul sion of the truth, through all darkness u^l over all har riers, into the hearts of the children of men, making known every whpre that "only name," and "warning every ro^n, and entreating every man," in order that all may come to the knowlodge of tho tnith as it is in Jesus. Flvo years ago, two young men from Maine and New Hampshire, one a licentiate, and the other a layman, went to the West under a commission to labor among the destitute in Kentucky and Indiana. These were tho first American colporteurs. Ood confirmed the enter prise with his blessing, and its development has been steady and rapid. In these five years, more than ono hundred and ninety-four years of colporteur labor have been performed; 400,000 families visited; and 870,000 volumes circulated, chiefly among the destitute, whom the former volwmo agency did not reach. Kffarts have beon made to provide specific classes of our population with colporteurs best suited for them. The list of colporteurs includes French, German, Irish, and Welsh, converted catholics, and sailor*. Tho whole number who have labored for the whole or a p*rt of the vear have been thu* distributed among the States In Rhode Island 1, Connecticut 1; New York 27, New Jer sey 6, Pennsylvania 32, Virginia7, Maryland 4, North Caroliua 2, South Carolina 3, Georgia 7, Florida 2, Ala bama 10, Mississippi 6, Louisiana 6, Texas 1, Arkansas \, Tennessee 9, Kentucky 4, Ohio 18, Michigan 4,1ndiana 6, Illinois 8, Missouri 8, Iowa 1, Wisconsin 2?in all 175. Of this number 135 are still in commission. Conventions of the colporteurs of different district*, at Syracuse, Detroit. Cincinnati, Pittsburg and New York city, for mutual advice and encouragement, have greatly inspirited their labor*, by giving them more extended view* of the good effected, and imparting mutual experi ence in overcoming or supporting difficulties. An appendix to tne report is filled with interesting de tails of tne visitation and distribution; of the influence of books, both good and bad; and of the aspects of the work in it* bearing upon the spread of Romanism in qur buid and day, and it also contains a tabular view of the whole results of the year. More tl?n 166,600 families have been visited, 177,000 volume* sold, 60,000 volumos grant ed to the destitute poor, and two millions of pages of tracts distributed upon the field. Between one-*ixth and one-seventh of the 166,000 familie* visited, vi?: 25.799 fa milies, are reported a* having been found destitute of every religious book except the Bible, and about an equal proportion (24,50* families) were Roman Catholic*, or professed to hold what ws believe to be fatal errors. More than 12,6o0 families are reported as found destitute of the Bible, and nearly the *ame number as supplied by the colporteur* with copies obtained from State or Coun ty Bible Societies. roacia* ri*LD. The aspects ef Providence in respect to the great work of evangelization abroad, are on the whole more cheer ing than at any former period. The society has, during tho year, remftted $|5,?W0, according to the recommenda tions of a special committee of diflereut denominations, as follows: to the Sandwich Islands $1,000- For China, (In addition to $500, transferred to tho Kplscopal mission from the mission to Crete,) mission of Board of Commissioner* $1,000. General Assembly's Board $1000, Baptist Board $500, and Rev. I. J. Robert* $1,000. Siam Baptist Board $290, Board of Commissioners $200.

Fhaict..?Th'e cause of F.vsngeliration In France wears tho most encouraging aspect. About 900 colporteur* are at work under the care of the different religious evan gelical Societies at Geneva, Pari* and Toulouse. Germany.?The jealous vigilance of the civil power in all the State* of Germany, has mado it difficult to esta blish colportage or tract distribution among the German [ people. But a beginning has been made, with tho pro mise of success ; and similar eftbrti aro making in Den ' mark, Sweden and Russia. Ti'**r.*.?Cheering news comes from the Trotestant I Armenian church, ot steadfastness in the mid?t of tempta | tion and persecution. Here too the extensive reading of ! tracts and books has proved a powerful agency in achiev ing a great religlou* reformation?a revival of pure reli i gion in a dead church. Isdii.?Never was the instrumentality of the pres* more needed in India than at present. Ihe demand for books is increasing yearly. The confirmation and cx ! tension of British power, the repeal of laws punishing a renouncement of rntlt, the rapid diflnsion of education, 1 and a growing taste for discussing religious subjects, go to loosen the hold of Hindui*m upon the people and open entrance for Christianity. Missionaries among the Mah rattas, at Madura, Ceylon and Madras, among the Tcloo goos, in Orissa and in Northern Indij, prosecute with In creased interest their tours through the Tillages for the distribution of tract* and book*, and with increased sue ita Mi.
