I. TH] Vol. Ill, No. Mo. N*w Haven, Sept. ith. 184?. fracetjingi / the Jlwuric on Beard aj Foreign Mittioni. AccorJiug to a resolution pasted at the Convention at Brooklyn 1 a>t year, the annual meeting of the Amaricau Board of Foreign Missions is held in this place tha present season ,and of courao tha influx of strangers is very great. From New York a clergyman is present from almost every town, tLa greater ptrt of whom came up i on the steam boot Rip Van Winkle, Captain Knight, which was especially chartered for the occasion. On board tbls boat we found collected fire or nix hundred clergymen of all denomination, and a sprinkling of the laity Through the kindness of Captain Knight, who rendered everything on beard his excellent boat conducive to the comfort of hit guests, arrangements were made for the holding of a missionary meeting on I hoard ttie boat. The Rev. Dr. Woods, President ot An.ioTcr College, presided, and opened the meeting with a . brief and pertinent address. Or. Scud.ler, missionary', jollowod in prayer. Kathor Sow ell, of Maine, who is now in his ti'ld rear, though ns halo and hearty as a man of 40, then made a few remarks. Mr. Spalding, missicnary in Ceylon related many facta concerning the success of < h-istian labor abroad; and after a prayer by Dr. l.indslov, President of Marietta College, Ohio, the meeting was closed with the tinging of the UTtli Psalm Kv th* time these exeicises were concluded, New llaven was near at hand, and, on the arrival of the boat, immediate evidence was given of good old Yankee hospitality in tlie readiness with which the doors of every house were thrown open for the reception of strangeis Hardly a building but lias its full complement of clergy picketed wrhin its walls. The members of the board, corporate and honorary, met at 4 P. M. at the Central church, the lower part of wh>ch was occupied by the clergy and laity, and tbe gal leries by a concourse of as radicnt beauty ai Mahomet taught his followers to believe would welcome them to Paradise. In the absence ol the Preaident, Theodore Krelinghuvsen, the meeting was called to order by Chief Justice Williams, of Hartford, 1st Vico President of the Board. Prayer was offered by the Rev. Dr. Vale. Bv request of Judge Williams, and on a motion of a member, Rev. E. t>e> mour, of Blooinfiwld, N J , was appointed nsairtant Recording Secretary. The minutes of tbe last meeting were then read, during which tbe names of the members prerent and lesidence* were collected. (These names, or all those of note among them, will be given tomorrow ) The committee of arrdngementa was then announced, composed of Dra. uoodricli, Aimstrong and Bacon. and Rev. Messrs. t:jevelaud, Duttoq, Uriggs and Strung. Dr. Anderson, of Boston, oue of the Society'* Secretaries, proposed the spending of a ?hort icaion in prayer: and, after tbe kinging the 44,-lih hymn, to the good old tuna of 8t Martin'*, the venerable father Seweil, of Maine, addressed the throne of grace " Oh, Lord, we udore thee, omnipotent ruler of the universe and creator of the world ; we adore thee that thou bast preserved us and hel|>ed ui; thou first diiUt make us able worthily to bleu thee, but by sin we have fallen, and rendered us liable to thy curse ; yet thou hast preserved us and kept u?, though being all of the same nature, so <ie?perately wicked, thou in justice miglithavo delivered us over to destruction. That thou hast saved us wo know, and we bios* thy holy naino : we bless thee for the news of salvation ; we bless thee for the means given us to send such news abroad ; and wo Moss thee tor out success. Our labor* have been prosperous through ihy great mercy, and we meot again to adore thee and ian ploie thy aid" Dr Anderson then made a few remark*. and stated that tbe meeting was now ope a to tbe exhortation* of any one present who would like to oiler any remark* The Rev. Dr. Allen, formerly President ef Bruuswick College, Maine, sOaW that twenty-lira years since be atteuued the firat meeting of tbe Ameiioan Board of Mission*. and that then l'J pei son* were present, representing all tbose interested in tbe matter; not as now, were there 6,000 honorary aud corporate members. Of tbose 13 lour are now living? of those deceased the Rev. Dr. Proudfit was one. He with tbe Speaker, at their flnt meeting, camqporly, and found themselves alone together?no one else was pros ent; the two knelt down and invoked the blessing of GoJ upon the success of their labors?thin was tbe prepar lory meeting. Dr. Edwards, of Andover, sabbath school missionary, then related an anecdote relative to the cflle?cy of piayer. The boat that bore the remain* of tho same Dr. Proudfit to bis family, struck upon a rock in tho river, and there was imminent dinger er sinking -a jiropoti'l.m wit msie tor praj er, and over the cold remains of the lespected tioctor, prayer was odcreil up to Him who "holrtelh tbe waters in tbo hollow of his hand " Tho ap jx>al was hoard, and salety was secured to all. Father Mr well, ot Maine, oom ma testimonv to me enicacy uuJ < duty of, on all occasions, turuing petitions to OoJ. Truat in liim and be gives everlasting strength?all depends ?l>on him. and without Him angels avail not. The venerable speaker gave several illustrations oI the immediate good effect* fioin prayer, and in telling of one good mother,who l>y prayer, caused the conversion of her ion; appenled to the hundred* present to join their appeals and petitions for the conversion of the heathen. Prayer vas then offered by Dr. Edwards; and alter the singing ol the 595th hymn, tlie Treasurer's Report for the last year was read by Henry Hill, Esq , of Boston, Treasurer. Ak soon as the reading commenced, the bouse was cleared as quick as the House of Rouresontatives upon the rising of a prosy member to speak upon a prosy subject, l'erliaps the members ef the Board were modest, and did sot wish the details of their work given in dollars and cents. The receipts of the Board for the yoar ending July 31, 1816. were? $363,073 05 Expenditures for the same tinie 367,60.> 33 Showing an excess of receipts of $4,468 33 On 1st Augcst, 1845, there was a balance la the treasury of 17,395 89 i Showing balance on hand Aug 1,1846. of. . . $31,764 31 Of the receipts thus reported. $195,308 37 were from donations,and $63,436 09 from legacies, of which $40,000 was the liequest of one deceated friend, the late Mr. Waldo, of Massachasetts. In additioa to this amount, the Board has received from the American Bible Society $4,000 00 American 'lraot Society 7,5<iO 00 $11,500 00 | rne report was oruere<l to tie printed, and relerreit to a committee composed of Mr. Peril, Dr. Smith. Memr* I Hornet Maiden, Fairbanks, and Kay. After n statement ! made by Prof. Goodrich, the meeting wan adjourned till P M , when -ho annual sermon would tie preached hj l?r. Hawes, of Hartford, according to the appointment ol last year, aud if iiii hoalth permitted, would he repeated by Ui. Hawti on tlu> succeeding evening, inasmuch as no edifice in town would accommodate the crowd* deal reus to hear him. Evr.wiifc. srssio*?tcmdav. The Board met according to adjournment, at 7?t P. M., in ihc Centre church; IN on our arrival there we found the audience more densely packed than we ever raw one before, even at commencement, or a Tammany Hall meeting The galleries were particularly appropriated 10 ladies, and as ever ia the case when they come together '.a New Haven, a thousand baauties are aeeu, sufficient to warm the heart of an anchorite. After a nio?t-excellent piece of mn tic by the choir, under the direction of J. M Hubbard, prayer waa ottered by the Rev. Dr. Deman, of Troy. Dr. Ilawes took for the tubject mbtterof hii discourse the ver?e of scripture found in the 7th chapter, First Samuel, lith verse " Hitherto bath the Lord helpod u?." The Doctor commenced by stating that St> years ago on the fifth September, five giave and venerable men met in the parlor of a house in Connecticut; and that these five men composed tho American Hoard of Foreign Mission r, appointed by the religious associations of Ma??achusctts ; but little interest wa? then felt in the community in the acts of these men, three of whom were frum Mawsachustts and two from Connecticut. Tneio was no spirit alive, no funds to u?o, no missionaries at woik. and all looked dark and gloomy, but liko the disciples01'Christ, a strong hand guided them, aud tha light of Christ waa their leader ; they were strung in the cause without meana, ?nd mighty in faith where God's work was concerned. The proacher t.ei e commenced a reviewal 01 the ends attained, and the good effected by the exertions of theae few pioneers of the gospel; he showed that however weak ceitain measures might seem to men, yet God has mado them workers of saivatjon to tliousands; that he has opened the eves nf the blind, and made the deaf to hear ; that in whatever light we may rev-ew j the court* of the Missionary Hoard, ho could truly say that ' Hithcrio haa God helped us.** First in the enlargement of accessible fields for mis- I lionary effort*. Thirty aix years ago there ware hut few I nventicv open to the rQ'orU of rolorm. Chilis was sealed to all endeavors tor tho e ntrance of Christian labor ; and Africa ?u covered with a cloud of dense darknex Hindustan look>"l than with a jealoua eye upon every approach of a soldier of the ciou, and absolutely icfused pcrntii?iou lor an American minister to commence the , good work: even at Bombay he wan allowed to remain on mere rufl'oranca. Now all i* changed Instead of asking wliero there are aventiei open, it ia liard to discover a land wher? they ere not: the world ii ottr field China, with tier population of three L?n rat and Any millions. is by a dtcren of the i Lmperor free to too labor ol missionaries. Hindotssn r witn lur I4'),0U0 000; the Islands of Pacific, Australia, Turkey,now all are willing and anxious for Christian , light. Kvea among the Mutammedons, the Armenian' a.e now secured in religious fr'Hom Thus (tod h . been all over the world in the conquest o: nation*, a .all I of a million of people are open to tho ac,ce??es ol i hris. i tinn grace ; all barriers have bean removed ; and tbe Lord ha* made even the acta of commerce and national i policy subservient to hia cauaa. Consuls and agent* have l had their efTeet, and tbe iwonl h?? cleared the way upon which the guipel haa afterwards been borne t Second ? Ood hiith hitherto helped u< in the increase of missionary ipirit. The Northern portions ol our coun- 1 try were planted by thote who came as missionaries of religion and lieodom to a strange land, and (hat same I feeling waich induced our forefathers to brave tho !>?rila ol the West, still Uvea and increa e? iu the hearts ol their i children. Such men aa Treat, Brainetd and Mai hew I wpi? the founders of Home Missions, and aftur these had * been in ahort operation, a ay mpatliy arose for the heathen I in toreigii lan.is ; but many good men opposed the send- t Irg a teacher of the gospel away Irom huim-, on grounds ol its impracticability and uaelesaneaa. However, tho board concluded to venture upon one mission, and aciually sent to London to aee it any help there could be obtained lor his support and salety. From this mission arose thfc organization of the present boaid in wnich tha whole ( iniMiau world is interested, so much ao iudeed, j tha no one can be in reality a Christian unless he wil | lingly lentis a hand to the evangelical spirit ol the day , wlii.-n bids them preach (rod's word to every living , creatuia , and thia is the spirit which gives birth to tbe ] idhiiv lienevulent societies ol the day. Some years ago, i , in London, tho Hinds upon which a Baptist mission was , foundod amounted to *13 J* fid, this rote to ?1*00, and , it was hopod by tha moot sanguine friends of tbe Socie- . ty that eventually ?ft,0G<) might be obtained. Their an- , dual income ia uow <M,0V0 annually ; that of the Loo- , I E NE NE1 don Society ?40.000; and of tha British Wealeyan i'100,- I 000; all collected aud expended for miatian* among the heathen ; in fact, $*}..'>00.000 are probably now annually giran for tba diaaemiuating of the goaptl among the dark placei of the earth. Third, God hath helped u? in tba wine and mcroRiful manner in which tho concerna of the Society have been Conducted The R?-v. Doctor claimed for tba former and present o(ilce>* r>f tlirt Boird <ia much in'elligence aijd noi ih hi could he expected from men who aro not infallible ; for huiin u r?, a' .tiea and zeal in tb?ir work they had acted aa good mewar'a. as men who felt their reaponsinility to God , Uiey preyed to hiui for aid, and | received it from hia hountilul providence Konitu, Hitherto God hnth helped na in r*i?ing up faithful and able miaaionariea Young men highly diatinguiahed for latent ami mholnrahip at homo, have given up all advanUgua ut homo and ma>!? all aacriflcea for the aake of diaseminating the bleaaed light of Chriatiaoj ity among the far lands of tho earth Some hava died, away from home and kindred, aud their bones are bleachi ing on tho hot plaina of Africa or Ailu, while those llv ing undergo ol! toili and privations for the Hake of that Saviour who endured all for them. Th" missionaries, too, had worked with one hnart, and no feelings of con' troversy or sectarian prejwdico had ever lor ? moment interrupted the good work, whether among committee* or conventions here, 01 among their agents in i'oielgn land! The Speaker next proceeded to mm t:p some of tho f;ood results accruing from tho labor* in which UoJ hath ent a helping hand. After year* jf trouble, fourteen of the heathen languages had been reduced to writing; where, ten \ears ago, there were hut 2,000, there are now 34,000 tnembrri of mission churoho? ; nor iU.es the growth of churches abroid slop thern, but they affect tne teolmg of tho c..?uiniunity at hom>) ? instead of 4 missionaries a few j ears n^o theie ?re now 134, and including native teachers und female uiutauti number 494; one mi-Monary station hat !>? a increased to 93; 23 lar.gmi^es have been learnt and inter; reted, ! seminaiiet been fouuded for the education of t?aelie?s; 36,000 children have been instructed, and an enmty tiessury has been chutiged into the receipt of $.VtO,OOi>d tear; these a.e ioni? of the results of the efforts ot the American Board of Foreign Missions. Dr Hawes cenclu led hi* discourse l?v sta.ii'f? what lesrons tna\ b.i gathered from a review of tin; l < n:es* in which "the Lord has hitherto helpe<l u.< *' 1 at i letsouoi gratitude may be learnt; ol gratitule to th.?t God w ho has led on christians in the work of the regenc <tion of mankind; and let all feelings of c.onxure an-1 iaoit finding bo done away with, as Gamaliel said to his friends. "R^frs.n ami lot taese men alone: if tiieir won* I be of iren it will come to nought, bat if of heaven y cannot overcome le.t haply ye bj found able to eouten agutust God." 2d. A lessor is taught of duty. Tae help UoJ has given places new du'ies upon those whom no has assisted; tho seed has been planted, and it now behoves the christian world to euter in and reap tho harvest. 3d. A lesson of godly fear, and of holv jealousy, lest we act in a way to turn away God's hand from helpi'jg us in fmture, is taught by the reception of his aid 'nerctoforo. The Rev. Doctor after speaking of the en, couirtgenient and hope in regard to the missionary labors in future, and urging christians on in their work, closed his remarks, which though extended were listened to with intense interest by tho crowd present. and we regret that this hurried digest is all tune allows us to seud. At the conclusion of the address, prayer was offered by Or. Ta) lor, of Bergen, New Jersey, a hymn sunt. benediction nronounoed by Dr. (ioman, and the meeting adjourned till 9, A. M ou Wednesday.

An, however, I have not received trom my attorneys, Messrs \V W. 0c Forrest it CO.. of New V ork, any later news than ot the 30th May, according to wbicn the suit was withdrawn Iroin'the County Court, lor tiio purpose of being brought into the U. H. Court, I must, thorefore, leave it to Mr. O H. Siemon?if he has not already informed my tai l attornies of the above remittance* made to me? to exhibit the present receipt, for the purpose of preventing farther proceedings against him, for which purpose tne present has been executed by me in triplicate, though legally to bo considered as only as one valid and binding receipt. This receipt Mr. Sedgwick remarked was considered at he time by the plaintiff a lull accord and satisfaction of the whole amount of indebtedness between him and Mr Siemon. Mr. Siemon remitted the two bills of exchange in full payment of the debt, and requested Mr lleye to receive them as such. Mr. iieye did receive thora, and in pursuance of Mr. Siemon's request, sent back this recmpt which Mr Siemon insist* is, and which no doubt Mr He ye himself iutended at the time to be. a full iel??ase and discharge of *11 debt* between them The lulls of exchange wero not rejected by Mr. Heye in Bremen, but were received by him acaording to the condition set out in Mr. Siemon'* letter, viz; in full uncharge 01 tne claim, ana in return lor wnicu, ne, Mr. Haye was to send a receipt, which be (lid; hi a matter of law independent of remitting tbo release by receiving the billj of exchange in the manner an did he closed the accounu between the pertios Out independent even of the letter, thore is no doubt tbe release wu intended as a receipt in full. The closing ol the account did not depend on the credit, for if >lr. Siemon were only credited on the account, the account would not be closed. The question is, what is the amount uf the sum credited, ami the condition upon which it was roi eived I insist, said Mr. Sedgwick, that this release w.is intended as a full accord and satisfaction, ana Mr biemon wa* to show it as such to Heye's attorneys in N??r 1 ork, as a bar to nil prosecution But suppose wo are in error in our view, is not the case one of ex'reme hardship I These parlies nave had transactions amounting to forty an I fifty thousand dollars, nnu If the relets* whs not a full discharge, it is a uutie. ol equity, to no decided by the jury whether tho defendant tier* ix to be mulcted in interest, by way of damages fora hiioit detention of the debt when the money wtu> actually in tiun.i Mr. Medgwick further remarked, that the . . .t coull prove tliat liefure this suit was commu..ce t, . < plaintiff's attorney called upon him with a diait tor tUo wholt amount of the claim, which lie wished liim to accept, but that the defendant rein-el to accept tne irau, a> ho bad an understanding witn tho piaintid' that u? would remit him the amount. The deleirlaut tUeu said if you will not sue ior non-acceptance of thone Uiafta. he would purchase bills of exchange for tne xviiule amount, and hand them over to him, to be forwardod 10 the plaiutiif? and the ioaiou why he wished to purchase the bills of exchange himself, was that on a former ocoasion Messrs. E (c T. Poppa had overcharged him in tbo rate of exchange, and he did not want to be treated the same way again. Mr. Medgwick further said?tbe | question if, whether intei est is to be paid be came the debt wm not paid the day it was due? In some cases, parties may claim interest aa a matter of right, us in the case of a note or bill of exchange, bat that ia not this case. There wa? no agreement to pay interost. This ia not a case where the law compels a jury to givo interest. The question ia?has there been such neglect on the part of Mr. Miemon, as to entitle the plaintiff to interest for non-payment of (he debt at the timo it became due?
