The Anniversary meeting of the American Bi ble Society was held yesterday forenoon, at the Broadway Tabernacle. Tho house, as asual on ?uoh occasions, was thronged, and the aiius full.? At 10 o'clock the meeting was organized?the President, Hon. Theodore Frkunqulysk*, in the Chair. After the reading of the Scripture* by Rev. Mr. Tippatt, the President delivered a short address, in which he spoko of the death of Gev. Smith, late President of the Society. He was a man faithful in all the relations of life?a man who loved the Bible, nnd o'i whose life its doctrine3 shed a peaceful lustre. The Scriptures afford us the best code of morals aud the beet code of laws, and were, therefore, eminently worthy the atten tion of die statesman as well us the moralist. Let it be our purpose to cherish it, and circulate it through the world. The Treasurer's report wes theu reed by Joseph Hyde, Ksq., by which it appeared that tlie receipt* for the past year had been. . . $197,773 97 Disbursements 194,401 34 Leaving a lurplui of a,37a 04 Tho Manager's report was then read by Dr. Brigham, Corresponding Secretary. The report commenced with a notice of some of the chancos which have oocured in tho society in the course of the last thirty years. Of tho offioers first ap pointed, nineteen in numSer, not one is now living, and bat four of the thirty-six who were the first managers. The Hon. John Cotton Smith died ia December last, ho nored and lamontod by all. The report contained an ex tended notice of that gentleman. Since the society was formed, the population of the country ha* increased from 8,600,000, to JO,000,000, vastly enlarging the number to be suppliod with the Bible Jttxiliariei.?The local auxiliary societies have gradu ally Increased, until they now number about 1000, having connected with them more than 3000 minor branches. A large number of these auxiliaries are in territory which was an unbroken wilderness when the present society was formed. The number of new auxiliaries formed the past rear is 67. loeated as fellows: One in Massachusetts ; four in Connecticut ; four in New fork ; four in Ohio ; one in Michigan; eight in Indiana ; seven in Kentucky ; four in Missouri; two in Virginia ; three in Mississippi ? eleven in Tennessee ; fourteen in Georgia ; six in Alabama ; one in Iowa ; one in Wisconsin ; and one in Texas. The number of life directors added last year is 39, and of life members Ml, making the total of the former 350, and of the latter 3.6S0. Receipt$.?Tho receipts of the rear have been, in all, $197,367,48, being an increase of $30,716,48, over those of the preceding year. By s new enactment of the board, the fiscal year now and henceforth closes the last of March, instead of the last of April, as heretofore. The effect is to make the past rear oonsist ef eleven months only. Had the receipts for April been included, the amount would have exceeded $200,000. The legacies of the year are much larger in amount than usual. Bookt Printed.?1Tho whole number in the course of the year is 483,000 copies, (i. e. in eleven months,) an increase over the amount of the previous year of 64,760 copies. Bible for the Blind.?A new edition of this important work !?" been printed during the year. It is found that it can be printed on the society's new steam press, as other books are printed. New Booki.?Anew thick 19mo. Bible, after an Oxford oopy, has just been published. Anew Frotestant Portu guese Testament is in preparation. Book! htued.?The number of Bibles and Testaments issued in the course of the year, is 483,073 copies, an in crease over issues of the previous year of 54,781, and an aggregate since the formation of the society of 4,497.986. At the end of the first ten years of the society, the in crease was $68,000,and the issue of books 81,000 copies. At the ond of the second ten years., the increase was $104,899, aad the issue of books 3*21,000 copies. At the end of the third tan years they are as Mated above. The distribu tions of the last year, are for eleven months; had those of April been included in the report they must have exceeded 600,000 copies. Jtgente?There are now in the employment of the so ciety seventeen agents, located as Copvi:?One in Maine and Now Hampshire; one in MdtlSchusetts j one la Connecticut ; three in New York ; two in Ohio ; one in Michigan ; one in Indiana ; one ia Illinois ; one in Missouri ; one in Kentucky ; two ia Tennessee ; one lu Georgia ; one in Alabama and Texas. Several of the large auxiliaries employ agents of their own, and many ? of tae country ministers eaaploy, temporarily, a Bible colporteur, or distributor, to explore and supply the country. Female Bible Soeietiet and Young Mtn't Bible Soeie Me?_The report speaks in high commendation of both these classes of auxiliaries, particularly for eities and large villages. Operation* fs lie Different Statu and Temtonet ? The report gives a sketch of what has been accomplish ed in eaeh of the above localities the past roar, includ lng the number of books sent to each, ana the amount of money received from the same. In many instances, vigorous and encouraging distributions are in progress. There is not a State or territory, ia which the sacred vo lume has not been circulated, and the same might be af firmed in relation to most of the countries. The distribu tions, however, are very small,compared with the abound ing wants. Diatributiont among'Stamen and Boatmen?These nave been more than in any previous year?they have beeu among armed vessels, merchantmen, whalers, steamboats and canal boats They have been made not only in the English tongue, but in French, Swedish, German, Portu guese and Spanish, la neaily all cases they have been gratefully received Diitributiont Abroad ?In the course of the year there hare been sent on request, books to Canada, to Oregon, (at three different times, and more than 1,000 copies,) to Caba, to Hayti, St. Thomas, St Croix, Brazil, Buenos Ayres, Chili, Sandwich Islands, Spain, Germany, West Coast of Africa, (Ceylon, Siam, for nations learning Eng lish) and to ?hlna. In the latter country they were wanted for seamen and foreigners, and in one instance, for a school of native youth, at Hong Kong, under the direction of Mr. Brown. The following resolution wm then offered end spoken to by Rev. H. W. Adams, of New Hsmpshire Resolved, That the report, an abstract of which has been read, be printed and circulated under the direcUon of the Managers. . Mr. Adiw said :-Mr. President, I hail this hour as one of the most auspicious of my life, in being able to re quest the publication and circulation of that admirable and cheering report. The report shows a rare increase hi the funds of the society, and also in the circulation of Bibles. It shows that the society is doing a great work; that it shall never give up till it has expanded its charities all over the world. It shows that the mountains are dropping sweet wine, and the hills are melting, and the has (madman returning from the harvest laden with their sheaves. This is what might be expected from the cha racter of the book we are circulating, divine, from the first verse of Genesis to the closing curse of the Apoca lypse?its divine character sustained by miracles and prophecies, an undeniable chronology, end an internal narmony in which no heresy can be t'onnd. Like a celestial Nile, it has poured down through the lapse of ages, bearing its sparkling nectar. It is adapted to all circumstances and conditions of life, containing shallows where a lamb mar wade, and deep waters in which an elephant may swim. Hast thou erer heard of such a boek?the author. God himself?containing the promise and the way of life or death eternal I Millions are cours iag the avenues to eternity?76,000 die daily; and when we think that the Bible alone can be their salvation, we shudder aad are nerred on to renewed efforts. Ail the ICast, sir, is ripe for the Bible. The impregnable wells of China hare been thrown down, and the gates of its barred eities swing upon their rusty hinges. The gospel may aow reeouuu ia oae language in the ears of M0,000,000 of people. The God of Heaven is setting up a greet spiritual kiagdom, when the world shall be given to the saints. The libte will be mnlUplied in all Ian guages, like the leaves of the forest, or the snow Hakes falling on the earth. The world, sir, is ripe for an evan gelical ehuroh. fir. the Bible where it has been circula ted hss dee* mighty works in converting sinners. a bo ax B assents ts ft kas estranged them from tbeir forms Md c^edTandhren^t them te a living ratlitv. The Pope keows this, end ae has let fly his bull at the Bible Societies. Str, the Pepe may issue bulls and may burn Bibles, but the Bible, like the cinnamon tree, pours its fragrance en hiss who hews it down. All this Romish blustering against the Bible Society is like the nibbling of mtois at an archangel's wing. Sir, we must succeed, in spite of Popery aad all other adverse influences. ' The Rev. Mr. Wvaorr, of Albany, seconded the reso lution, w liich was adopted. The Rer. Mr. Bcrt-xa, of Massachusetts, here csae forward, and proposed the following resolution: Resolved, That tho pacific tendencies of the Bible, proclaiming peace on earth, and good will towards men, should lead to an early end wide diffusion of this bless ing among all naUons. He said?Mr. President, experience has shown us that there are many things which may be called the conve niences end the necessaries of lift. One is the atmos phere which we breathe and inhale, and which operates and acts upon the system, giving it life and being. Eve ry man knows that this air is needful to him; aad he also knows, that when this Mr loses any of its parts, there is a dlMcuity in breathing. Aad when this air is taken away , there is no substituting any other air for that which Ood has glren him to breathe. (Applause.) The Holy Book, In the same ?enner, sir, wae given to maa by Ged; aad 1 know that the word ef God is necessary for the suste nance of that life which wm given by God to man?for God made for man tnat moral atmosphere?(spplause>? that moral stmospbere, sir, invwhich he could live and breeUie. In l apel and Pagan lands, where this waa ex ciuocd, all intercourse between man and man?that were all boi n under the same clime, and ia the same land? swarms were living unable to breathe this moral atmos pheio of lite, truss one land to tbe other?from the fa van land to tho land el Uie Infldei? from mountain to mountsin?msn, in this state of moral destitution, was diawiiig out a leeble existence. 1 be lack of this know ledge w as ju t as it those wttu did not |>oeseea it had lost ? riglit arm, or a right eye. We never, sir, shall sees ported state ol society, until we see in every house a bible, and ia every borne the advocates ol exten sion, standing side by sids. The people of Ireland, even at this day, without the seiutary aid of the j>ibie are shrouded in darkness; and contrasted with this, there is 1'iotestant Scotland with the light streesaipg towugh ail its dwellings, besease shajhas ike Bible. The father of history toll* u? that Egypt was gifted. far the Nile overflowed It* bnnki. That river has long since pe riodically fertilized the noil, and warmed the population, and gave them all the advantages of cultivation- "ha* the Nile is to Egypt, the word of man U to this world. Foreign, aooial, civil and religious. it make* this world ? vivifying stream to fertilixe the soil; and without it, a place for wicked men who do no good. I t ii astonishing to And how many there are who repeat the word of (tod and (till spring at reforms. It reminds me of u debating society among boys, where I once happened to be pre sent The question before the society was, whether we could live best without wood or water. One boy took up the point a good deal about Are. He said '? if we have no raia we should all starve ; but wo can live without wooJ; brick will answer us to build ; and if now and again we desire a tire, why, we can walk along the shore and pick up sticks." (Immoderate roars of laughter.) It is not in human nature to go and live on frost; and th#? **" ny men, my fnends, picking up sticks. (Renewed laughter. If those thiiurs are true. it becomes necoittry to know that there are thousands in tins land destitute of that moral atmosphere. I shall not go into statistics, for this is not the place for thorn. But refer even to IMum. ohusatts : there aloae bo lose than three hundred andinfty families are found without any portion of the word of Ood ; and more than ?00 with only apart of the Bible. If this is the case In Massachusetts, what must be the case with the less populated parts of our country, who are all living in great destitution in the midst of us1 1 next turn to New Hampshire, where I called on my war through that part of the country, at a house by the wav side, and founda ladv reading the Bible. 1 was over-. joved. She tol<l me that St was distributed to no lou than siity families iri the vicinity ; but 10 towns, manv of the people there were destitute of the Bi ble. The reverend gentleman, after further ^tailing the particulars of his tour through New Hampshire, where the Bible was not as yet fully distributed, wont on to say. the crowds of emigrants who were daily arnv ing at the "Ear West," importing the religious principles orthe Catholic dynasties of the old world, demanded the prompt and energetic action of the Society, who ought to meet them on tho very threshold. If they went with a hearty co-operation, victory would undoubtedly crown their success. A doop and solemn responsibility rested upon them; and unless they overcome It, the darkness that was foreboding, would overcome thorn. The ligut of the Gospel was spreading itself through France, and all the north of Europe, through the e?cient agcncy of these Bible aociotios. In Italy, too, and the King of Prus sia had circulated a vast amount of copies in his domin ions. If his Majesty had any to spare, he ought to send them to tho common schools of the city of.New V?rk. There were no less than half a million of Bibles already distributed by the Society, but let them have more unti . in the words of the gospel, "all could read tho wonderful W l)r.4Coo??seconded tho resolution, which passed nem. f#TheRev. Dr. Parker, of Philadelphia, hero offered the following resolution .. Resolved, That the general circulation of the Bible among all classes of our citizens, is ominently calculatod to perpetuate our happy form of government, and to pro mote all tho best interests of our country. He said he felt very much overwhelmed with the res ponsibility of speaking upon this topic. He felt aware ot the necessity of woighing well what he was about to say. because it would be waftedj^vith almost electric ra pidity, through the land, by the secular press, whose aid in their missionary labors proved of so much efficiency. The secular press may be considered the servants o\ the Bible Societies, and it warmed into vitality, and that without pay, the cause of truth and of rel> cjon In the present condition of the political and foreign relations of the country, with aggression and war upon tho libortios of the country threatening, he considered it was the bounden duty of every good citizen, no matter of what creed or politics, to support the Executive, kc. It was not because he had voted for Henry Clay that in such an emergency as the present he should not stand by the Executive. He admired the principle that guided the friends of the government in the present emergency. They would exercise an immense influence in producing pacific feeling. The sword was not. always to be taken up in vain. The Puritans thomselvos had been aided by the sword; and John Knox himself, was a perfect Andrew Jackson on the Bible. After detailing the particular in relation to the marriage of the daughter of Knox the Re former, with John West, the banishment of the latter from Scotland, and the particular* of his wife s visit to London, her Interview with the King subsequently, and noble resolution and magnanimity on the occasion, he went on to say?There are no other means to ne made use of 10 disseminate the Bible among all mankiud, than by fully justifying its principle*.? The other means of force made use of to pre serve and extend its character and influence, are at variance with common sonso and common justice. Many ssy that the power of force is the host adapted to rule tne world. I cannot unilo in tiii? ?o?liment Man's power ol force is not like that made use of by th. power of God. The kingdom of God does not come by observation?po liticians cannot sec it-warriors cannot see it?it is im perceptible to the human eye. The influence of the Bible is more an inatrniucntsuf peace than anything else in the world. U has ncvci been made the means of con duest, and never will be The influences of the Bible are i>ermanent and enduring?the Ml of our first ances tors was the result of.its predominating power and its Divine command. 1 o. k at tne sentiments which were entertained through i:s instrumentality by our fathers of *76. The . acknowledged it as their guide, reliance, and chid l^>endence in the hour of their severest struggles an privations: it cheered thom in the hour of battle, and consoled them in the day ol grftf. The American people will ever raUy around that sacred volume, and preserve it inviolate in it* purity. The Rev. Mr. Bro^son seconded the resolution, in iU literal sense; ho did not like the ''war spirit iit aU. The Hon Wm. Maxwell, of Virginia, presented the following resolution^e er#1 cireuj^ion the Bible amonir all classes of our citizens, is eminently calculated to perpetuate our happy form of government, and to pro mote all the best Interests of our country. , It .corned to him that this resolution was in need of no advocate for there were none in this mixed and crowded audience'but that would cheerfully respond to the aen? ments it conveys. There are none but would wish to see our institutions, political, civil, and religious preserved and remain unimpaired, and which can only be done by a free circulation oftho Bible. All that 1* wanted i', to cultivate intelligence and virture among all classes ot our people?perhaps I should say virtue first, because it is most important Wo want more light in this dark land. We have to combat with frounerites Fanny Wrights, and other rights, which are all wrong. [Great applause,] and led on by the spirit of( darkneM. This is the very book, this Bible, (holding it up in hi* hand) which is wanted to diffuse intelligence?it is the light of truth?the light of God?aud i* the bow of Heaven, which i* the smile of Ood. Something more is necessa ry than the light of intelligence, and groat talent for the purposes of self-government You want virtue and mo rality?you want moral, rather than intellectual know ledge for the government of man. We want virtue f?* our guide, and the blessed instructions to be found in tho Holy Scripture*.

[Laughter and applause, in which the clergy generally participated.] I see about me many bright eyes, beaming with intelligence-ladies of beaut if uland fair complexions, who no doubt would bo glad to c??a forward ne re, and unite with u* in our .enUment.-but they are forbidden to take a talking part in 0"r dc''bej rations, and which of right they should bo, although I confess that their pleasing prattle is ehann ing, and delightful; yet only at the fireside is it the most acceptable?there was a time?[the speakci is about three score and ten]?when I wa* easily lured to their side: and it was with much difficulty that I could sepa ss s-a common brotherhood ana , vy. ence here in our various Tor all pay it our most marked devotten, ajsdowe'o' ?cuVs salvation With such sentimO***, 1 wJaUo in tne existence of the America* Bibl* Society,I rcjolco tt 11 prospects and iU ultimate purpose.

Fiourwn M*r MixaAita, a theological student conded the resolution with *ome very appropriate **a feeUng remark*. He said that for the first time in ni* life, he hod to claim the honor of being founl present at a religiou^annlvereary In Now York; and ctmiing nu recently from a remote portion of the country ,he mtgnt be excused from offering any thing in the support of this resolution, which ho understood wa* (for he could not read himself, being blind) to be the " general circulation of the Bible among all mankind." To?uch a proposition he would yield hi* most hearty and willing offerings and prayer*, for through M* instrumentality and dispensa tions, how much of good ha* keen already e floe ted! Rev. Dr. Tvwo offered the following resolutions, and said: I feel peculiar pleasure in being permitted, at this time, to address the Society and audience before me ? My young friend from Washington ha* taken from me much of the responsibility of waking un, in this assem bly an unueoal degree of interest at the cloee of the proceedings. 1 welcome him among us, and we will not chide himror hi* youth, though he call* himself a boy. The Rev. Dr. then read the resolution*, as follows: Resolved That from the destitution of the eacrod geripture* which i* .till found to exist in all our State* r?7 '?3 ?tfTKJSi tftiSSXE comiMyeix not "eM than750%?

And in Plvmouth, the county nallowed by the presence of the rock of the Pilgrims, or what pilgrim veneration and superstition hare loft of U, in this verjr county are 600 families destitute of tho Bible ! and two of these counties are in sight of the city denominated tho modern Athens. Well, sir, if old Massachusetts presents such pictures of moral destitution, what may wo expect to near from the groat West 1 If Massachusetts, whose ad vancement is so pre-eminent, whose rail roads ramify the surrounding States like blood-suckers, and bring in the riches of science and labor, if she cannot maintain the circulation of the Scriptures, what are we to expect when wo travel out into the wildernesses and prairies of the S-oat West, with those pioneers in good works, the Me odist cirouit preachers I Sir, we want i>00,00u copies of the sacred Scriptures circulated in this Union, before ev ery family, beneath the stars and stripes, can say " we have the Bible." We must look at this important sub ject as it is not hear, and think, and wish it God speed, but, like a man who has a note to pay. we must recollect that failuro to perform, though not incarcerating us in stone walls, gives us the far greater punishment of bro ken faith, of oroken faith with God, and a conscience ever reminding us that we have neglected His interest and His commauds. And then the remarkable growth of our population should awaken us to energy. From ev ery quarter of the earth the poor and destitute are throng ing to this LI Durado (in their minds.) of the world. The surplus population of Europe is coming to us at the ?'ate of half a million every year. We are told that this soci ety can produce OOOOoopies of the Bible in five days, but this is not too many to supply theso and our own desti tute. Of this half million, at least 100,000 are Roman Catholics, prohibited the use of the Bible by the autho rity of the churoh which calls' itself the church of the f.iving Ood. But we are not to regard this arrogant pro hibition. Sir, Oud gave the Bible to every man, and ev ery woman, and every child, and for any man, or any set of men, to say its interpretation* and possession shall be snbject unto us, is most fearful arrogance and as sumption, which wo repudiate and resist. I do not bolieve, sir, with some who have preceded mo, that war is ever justified by the Bible; and, as did Luther, when all tho nations, aroused by the Reformation, cried out for war upon Rome, I will refuse to assent to it I will use no sword that can kill the bod*, no weapon but the sword of Divine druth contained in that oiessed book. For these 100,000 souls wc are resjionsible to Ood. No Holy Allianco can say here that the werd of truth shall not be freely read by all; and I hold, sir, that no person has a right to sit in darkness when the pure light of eternity is within his reach?no one has a right to keep himself ill ignorance. Look, too, at the immigration from poor oppressed Ireland, a nation which I have ever re spected and embraced in my sympathies, upon whoso wrongs and abuses 1 have lived in the imagination, where a protestant people arc likely soon to go to the wall, for the tithe people seem to advance the uplifting of the pow er of Rome once more upon her unhappy soil, ana we may vet hear that rivers of martyrod blood are dying the pleasant valleys of the green Isle? from the gem of the sea, from the mountains of Switzerland, and from the forests of Germany, myriads on myriads aro com ing to our; country?' they aro coming Bible less, and we have no right to withhold from them the bread of life. There never has been a year, when such efforts have been demanded of us; Ood grant that we perform to our full abilities. We are shooting down the stream of time toward a cataract as it were, where all feelings and passiens fare at work, and speaking their appetites and dosires. We are, too straitened at this important moment in our supplies; hut I feel that we must succeed?that the Bible must be triumphant Some, it is true, reject the good book; but for every one of those, myriads are gasping for the great truth, and many are eager to buy at the utmost of their means, the word of Ood. [The Rev. Dr. hero gave some interesting accounts of the progress of the Bible in Man chester, Kngland, and ?"-<?no'"iced a fine eulogy upon Bishop Sumner, of I'hrtttt. In Manchester, the society thore, usually circulateu about 6000 Bibles per annum; but for the year ending September last, 15,000 had been Kiven out, and in the months of October and November ist year, nearly 31,000 copies were distributed.] Like Bishop Sumner, 1 am thankful that 1 belong to so glori ous a society. I nail my flag to the mast, and no one shall tear it down. The work of this society is a work of Ood, which no man has a right to gainsay. From this society I never was able to withhold my aid aince I becamo aware of its objects, I do not desire to occupy more of your time ; 1 may have wearies you, and I have spoken so frequently within the last fow days that I fear my voice may at last have be come tiresome?(Cries of go on. go on) ?Yet I must say it is with peculiar pleasure and confidence that I meet this Society?it is one which above all others interests my feelings. We are now come to a point: we must either go onwards or we must stop short. The incentives to go on and advance in our efforts are many and great. On all sides there is a desire, a need, a suffering people who call loudly upon us for increased eff ort and exertion. Let us respond to these desires and satisfy these numer ous wants. It may be said we hold the Key of supply, the mines which pour forth their ^chos and which re main to be explored. Let us to 1c work. Talk not, think not, sleep not?but work: With this object in view, with these purposes, we may save for Christ that hand which cries aloud for our exertions. This day, if this resolution is adopted, each one of us may go home with the determination to double his real, to double his contribution, and then we shall be able to carry out the plan. Then will 730,000 messengers go forth from heaven to man, harbingers of life and peace; then will will they he sent forth thraughont the whole length and breadth of the land in which we dwell. Mr. Trna having concluded, the resolution was put and carried unanimously. Dr. PsaBca, of Philadelphia, rose to make an explana tion of some remarks in a speeoh he made, which had been misunderstood ; he had not intended to say, or im ply by his remarks, that he was in any way in favor of war. The substantial meaning he meant to convey, was that it was Ood who directed the armies, and ordered the battle and the course of events, and he would wish to be on his side and in the war which he directed against his enemies. [We understood the learned gentleman to re fer to the remarks made in reference to his speech by Dr. Tyng.] The doxology was then sung, a benediction pro nounced, and the meeting adjourned. Anniversary of the American Baptlat Home Mlaalon Society. This Society held its anniversary meeting in the first Baptist Church, Brooklyn, on Wednesday evening, May 13. The Hon. F. Humphrey, of Albany, presided. The exercises commenced with singing the 1139th psalm, by the ohoir; after which an eloquent prayer was made by the Rev. Mr. Samson, of Washington, D. C. The Treasurer, Mr. R. H. Martin, read his annual report, which, on motion, was accepted. The Executive Board reported, through their Corresponding Secretary, the Rev. B. M. Hill. From this report it appears that the receipts of the year ending April 1,1W6, were $16,228. Including those of auxiliaries, which are throe less in number than heretofore, the amount ii *40,WW 10. At the tame date, the resour ces of tha Society, immediately available, were $4,611 11, and the liabilities $9,916 93, making the balance against the Society, $4,909 83. 106 missionaries and agenta have labored under the commission of the Society, 37 of whom Jjsve been reappointed for another year; they have occupied the *nmc State* and Territoriei as heretofore, with the addition of New Hampshire and Oregon; they statedly supplied 472 atations. They re port the baptism of Wi persons; the organisation of 3S churches; the ordination of 16 ministers; the comple tion, by their people, of the building of 38 homes of worship, and the commencement of IS; and that 8 church es, heretofore aided by the Society, have become able to support the gospel without further draits upon our trea sury. The auxiliaries of the Society report the employ ment of 341 missionaries and agents, who hare supplied 640 stations, and beptierd MM pereoae. ?ekurehes among them need no further missionary aid. The aggregate of these Isbors and results, are M7 misaloaarie*; lMi per sons baptised; and 14 churches heretofore aided, enabled to snpport the gospel independently of missionary funds. By adding te tne statistics of the past year, those of pre vious year* as far as ascertained, It appears that since the formation of the seciety it* missionaries have, jointly, baptised 16,416 persens; organised h64 churche*, and or dafned M0 ministers. A oomperison of the society's sta tistics of the yesr, with those of the previous year, show* the following difference*:?7 missionaries employed, 173 stations supplied, 174 baptisms and 4 churches rendered able to snpport the gospel, more than in 1646. And 16 churches organized, 17 ministers ordained, and $9,647 66 less recelpta than in 1*44. A motion was made to accept the report, upon which the Rev. Mr. T.tcker, of Wisconsin, sddresscd the meet ing as follow*:? I concur, with great plea*ure, Mr. President, in the mo tion to accept the report just read. I mytelf receive great support from thi* society in the missionary labors that 1 have nndcrtaken in the far West No man ran calculate or will be able to know in this world the value of this so ciety. If its efforts to diffuse the light of revelation are crippled, the eternal intereats of those who, in the Air West, *igh for the ministration of the gospel, will be jeopardized, and the cause of true religion will be pros trated in the dust The West should deeply interest those dwelling in this section of the country. Swsrms of human beings are crowding into the territory of Wieconaia, like the waves ot the mighty lake that wash its ahores. Crowds are emigrating to the mighty West, to give character to the cause of Uod in that great valley. The man of sin is endeavoring to erect his empire there. There are twenty-five thousand Catholics in the single territory of Wisconsin. There i have bean thirty-tw3fCatholic churchea erected in the I territory. In the ainglecity of Detroit, $73,000 of dona i tiona from Europe, have been expended in extending the 1 influence of the man of ain. The foundation of a church waa laid in that city some time since, which i* to coit $40,000. The mo*t extraordinary pomp and ceremony , waa u*ed oa the occasion of laying the foundation atone. The procetaion of the Catholics, who had came to attend | the ceremony from all quarters in the vicinity of Detroit, . waa a mile in length. The foundation of another church | was laid about ? year ago, in the city in which 1 retide, and the procession that attended w a* two mile* in length, (.anon wa* flred on the oceaaion.and the foundation ?u>ne wa* laid amid demonstration* of triumph. The Catholic* | are establishing schools and oolleges in the West The } Jesuits are extending their influence over the minds of tha people. The Jssuits understand human nature, aa doas their father, the man who deceived oar tret parents. (Hare there waa a general smile, the sadienoe teeming to eajer the sally richly.) Owing to the pertinacity with which Catholic* adhere to their belief and to tha truckling policy of soma Protestants, who, V ng It to ba thair pecuniary iulereat to bo in favor with tha Catho lic*. leuJ their countenance and their aid to tha building of Catholic churches, Catholicity i* spreading in the Wast.

Undor God there i* no hand so strong to break down the barrier* of superstition as the hand of this socioty. It } i* this tbat make* us in the West tremble when we j hear of the ombarrassments of this society. Without it* ' instrumentality many a village in WUco'nsin would be : without a Sabbath; many a soul would have been led astray. In that territory there are 'J6.000 Catholic* to 3,000 Baptists, and without the aid of this (oeiety our ef- | forts would be weak indeed to combat thi* mighty odds, , aud all those powerful influences that are brought to . hear against the cau*e of true religion. The Rev. Mr. Dkakk. of China, wai introduced by the President, and said :?Perhaps some one mav enquire what busings 1 have with the affair* of the Home Mis siou Society I I answer, that 1 have an interest in thi* looietv which I can delegate to no man. I cannot but feel tliat I have a relationship to (hi* *ociety. I cannot be insensible to the interest of anv society that ha* for it* object the spread of religion. Trie professed object of thi* and other societies of a similar onaracter i* to attain oh grand and glorious aim?the preaching of the gospel ?and there i* no use in endeavoring to bring tho mem ber* of religious denominations into collision about holy thing*. 1 call myself a close communion Baptist, but 1 have no hostility to my brethren of other communion*. 1 have been often domesticated in the familie* of Chris tian* of other denomination*, and have experienced from them a great deal ofkindne**. If 1 adhere strictly to my own form of belief, which I hope I do, there is no reason why 1 should not lovo my brethren of other denomina tions. When I left my little Chinese community at Hong Kong. 1 was very happy in leaving my congregation in the pastoral charge of a brother ofanother denomination. I fear there i* sucTi a thing a* hvper-denominauonism. - Tho interests of tho Foreign Mission Society, and of the | Home Mission Society, are the same. Some say, let the j foreign mission be taken care of, and God will take care I of the home mission. Other* again say, the home mi*- ! sion is as much in need of assittance a* the foreign mis sion. But if our heart* were right, there would bo no want of means to carry out the object* of both. Thi* society is virtually supporting the cause of foreign mis sions. and indeed each assist* the other. 1 would recom mend a different policy from that pursued at present in the selection of pastor* for the west ern minion. Many of the men already lent out would, to be *ure, do honor to any society. But the church in the ea*t ha* been too covetuou* of ner most ta lented men; and the idea ha* prevailed that the greateit dearth of spiritual food prevail* in the west, and that the people will be willing to receive, with thankfulness, the word* of life from any paatar, however deficient in talent or piety; no imprecaion can be more erroneoui; no mon but those of tranicendant talent can be acceptable to the people of the West. It ia a mistaken policy not to send out to that section of the country the very best talent that tho church can afford; when men of inferior talent* or piety are sent out there, they are soon cent back, or compelled to subsist by the labor of their hand*. Our* ia a great en terprise, and it require* great agent*; it ia, betides, an en terprise of great cost; it cost the founder of our (ociety the relinquishment of hi* heavenly eitate, and a life of pain and suffering, We muit imitate the example of our Saviour; we muit bo ready to (elect the beat men for the work; it has been heretofore too much the custom of the church to *end out the blind, and the lame, and the disa , bled, and to keep the lamb* of the flock to herself; this will not do any longer. A few years ago I had occasion to call on a brother miniatar at Chicago, Illinois, who had just been *ent out there ,and who had a congregation of but twelve persons; their Sabbath service wa* per formed in a miserable hovel. A few month* ago, when I wa* travelling in tho Wect, I called upon him again.and 1 found, in place of tho miserable hovel, a large brick edi fice, handsomely finished within and without, and instead of the congregation of twelvo person*, he had one of over two hundred souls. Thi* gloriou* ipread of religion wa* mainly attributable to the effort* or the Home Million Society. Go on, then,with your gloriou* endeavor*; they will not be without their fruit*-, whether we labor at home or abroad, may we be prepared to reap, in another world, the full reward of our effort* here. After the Rev. Mr. Dean had concluded, tome discre pancy appearing between the Treasurer'* Report and that of the Executive Board, it wa* remarked upon by one or two member*; but the treasurer'! report not being at hand, tho two document* could not be compared, and the matter wa* allowed to drop informally. The report wa* then accepted- The hymn, "From Greenland'* Icjr Moun. tain*," was then *ung by the choir, and the President hav ing announced that the Rev. Mr. Magoon, of Richmond, Va , would preach in the church on Sunday evening next, at 7 o'clock, the society adjourned. Boston, Ma**., May U, 1844. Tkt A'nti from Mexico ? Itt Effect here ?

Ail i* yet on the aurface, however. It i* reported here that many of the hazardou* people of Nova Scotia have all along been awaiting war intelligence from the Gulf to fit out privateers to annoy the American commerce. Men in this city with old head*, however, are not leriouily alarmed, but hope that Congress will pass a law to hang every American caught on board a privateer against our ships. This they tbink|wlll be a sort of preventive against the evil. The iplendid (hip John Quincy Adam*, Capt. Nicholi, a Ane, gallant tailor, sails to-morrow for Canton, and it is a matter of some doubt whether or not ahe goe* armed. It will, at any rate, take a pretty iwift sailing privateer to catch or capture her. The boys here have caught the war fever.

The defendant is ? citizen of the State of Virginia, and matter of the brig F.mpire. In 1843 the vessel v. a* in this port, and ready to tail for Norfolk, in Virginia, when the ?te ward, a colored man, took lick, and was unable to pro ceed. The captain then employed the plaintiff, another colored man, in hia place, lor the outward and return vovaget; and the brig nailed, and reached Norfolk, and delivered her cargo. While lying at Norfolk, a black woman, with her child, came on board unnoticed, and tecreting themselves in tome part of the brig, remained undiscovered until the vessel i 11an left Norfolk, and was three daya at ml , On the third day thav war* discovered by the Ant ; mate, in the cook's galley; flpon whioh he informed the I captain, who waa then at breakfast in hia cabin. The I captain came up, and ordered the woman and child, and 1 the cook forward, and had them confined, and put the j *hip back to Norfolk: w her* they arrived the ee*t evsa j ing. On their arrival, the Mayor wai apprised of the j circumstance. He despatched an officer on board, who I t.iok them on shore; and it was feund that the woman and ' child were the property of a citizen of Norfolk, and that | the woman had a anter residing in Boston; that the plan i waa concocted between them, thnt she and her child I should get on board privately, and conceal themselves, i until the vessel arrived at this port, and then get out and I proceed to Boston, to her sister. They were given , up to their owner: and the plaintiff was handed over to the public authorities, anil tried and convicted under the I laws of Virginia, for aiding and abetting In the escape of Uie fugitives, and sentenced to twelve years Imprison ment in the penitentiary of Norfolk, where he now re I mains; these facts being proved, connsel for the plaintiff rested. Kor the defence, it wai staled that the laws of ' Virginia made it a felony for any person to aid or abet | in the escape of slaves; that when the defendant disco vered the runaways, he was within a few miles of the coaat of Virginia, and within its jurisdiction, and if be had not taken the coarse he did, by pnttinr back the ?hip, and apprising the public authorities of tne circum stance, he would subject himself to a prosecution; and ! if convicted, to a fine of $1000, and imprisonment for 13 1 years; that the plaintiff knew of those persons coming on board; that he secreted them in n small room behind hia galley, and supplied them with a bed and food, the property ef the veeael. The ftrsf evidence offered, was an exemplified copy of the laws of Virginia, under which the defendant justlfled. Mr. Dacssaa, for plaintiff, objected. He insisted that the court could not receive pasaages cited from the laws of a foreign State, upon a question arising in respect to that law, as evidence of what the State law upon that ques tion is, unless the particular paasages are deposed to by a witness skilled in the laws of the State, upon the ques- > , tion in dispute, and cited the caae of Lord Nelson vs. j I Lord B rid port, decided by Lord Langdale, in the Rolls I , Court, in hngland, in 1846. Mr. Diaot, for defendant, aeid the cases were not snalagoua ; the case cited was a question of foreign ju risdiction between two foreign countries; wherea*, the j J question now under consideration was one between sister States, governed by the aame general constitution, and bound by that constitution and the laws of Congress i to give full Uith and credit to the legal judgment* and record* of their respective courts. Objection overruled, the Court giving no opinion upon the applicability of the record as evidence in the case.? i Decision excepted te by plaintiff'* counsel.
