“Since the return of the Bishop, Mr. M'Leod, from Bishop's College, has been admitted on the list of the Society's catechists; he bids fair to be a valuable acquisition, and purposes offering himself for holy orders in about twelve months."

In compliance with a requisition signed by upwards of 300 merchants, bankers, and traders of the city of London, the Lord Mayor has called a public meeting of the friends of the Society, for the purpose of taking into consideration the insufficient provision now made for Divine worship and religious instruction in the colonies; and to take measures for enabling the Society to supply this lamentable deficiency.

The meeting will take place at the Egyptian Hall, Mansion House, on Wednesday, April 8, at one o'clock.
