MISSIONS AMONG THE CHEROKEES.

the Bible, and to write; agriculture
is becoming a common occupation;
civil law is established throughout
the nation; religious meetings have
been held, and numerously attend-
ed; and above four hundred of
these perishing sheep in the wilder-
ness have been gathered into the
church of Christ, and now rejoice
with their White brethren in the
hope of their common rest.
"The
traveller on the highway," it is
added, "observing cottages rising
up, regular towns erecting, farms
opening, the Sabbath regularly ob-
served, and an almost total change
in the character and habits of the
people, asks with surprise, Whence
this revolution?”

THERE are at this time twenty-one missionary stations among the Indians in the United States, occupied by American Wesleyan ministers; and from all of them the reports are stated to be highly favourable. The missions in the Cherokee Nation have been signally successful. About four years ago, the first Wesleyan Missionary visited that nation, computed to contain fifteen thousand souls. The whole amount expended upon this mission, during the four years, has not exceeded sixteen hundred dollars. And what has been the result? A part of the nation is now regularly supplied with preaching; many children have been taught to read RECEIPTS OF RELIGIOUS AND CHARITABLE SOCIETIES. HAVING brought another volume to its closing page, we conclude it with the following list of the last annual receipts of our religious and charitable societies; extracted, omitting fractions, from the Missionary Register. The compilers of this interesting and valuable document amply merit the thanks of the religious and benevolent part of the public, for the labour they have bestowed upon it. The Societies are arranged alphabetically, under suitable heads.

These items form a grand total, somewhat exceeding HALF A MILLION STERLING !—a munificent sum, in the aggregate; but little, very little,

compared with the resources of the nominally Christian world to contribute; and still less, compared with the necessities of mankind. The sum, large as it may be thought, is the produce of the labours of a comparatively few individuals, many of them among "the poor of this world, rich in faith," who have learned, by the blessed effects of the Gospel upon their own hearts, to pity the wants of their fellow-creatures, and to exert themselves for the supply of them; while the larger mass of society stand aloof, heedless of the pressing claims upon their country, and uninfluenced by that love of Christ which could constrain them to spend and be spent in the service of God, and for the best welfare of mankind. But we rejoice to observe that the work of Christian mercy still advances; and that charitable and religious institutions are, by the blessing of God, conferring inestimable benefits upon the nations; and ushering in, we doubt not, that exalted day "when the kingdoms of the world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever, King of kings and Lord of lords. Hallelujah! Amen."
