The Directors have lately received letters from India, &c. by the Sarah Christiana ; among others, a Letter from the Rev. Mr. Vos, dated CoJumbo, in Ceylon, May 12, 1806. He prcaches regularly in the Dutch church on the Lord's Day; on Wednesday evening at his own buse; and, occasionally, at other private houses on Friday evening; and catechizes the young people on Thursday evening.

A Letter has also been received from Mr. Loveless, dated Egmore, near Madras, Oct, 1, 1806: he continues to preach regularly in the Black Town; where a number of persons attend on his ministry with apparent seriousness, and, he hopes, with some benefit. He has undertaken, for the present, the office of Schoolmaster, at the Military Male Orphan Asylum; in which situation he has an opportunity of being useful to the children and others. He mentions that the brethren Cran and Desgranges are going on very prosperously at Vizagapatam. Mr. Ringeliaube bas been labour

ing about Pallamcotta; and preaching in the Tamul language. He has two native youths under his tuition, whom, he hopes, will become useful Missionaries.

Dr. Taylor, after many unexpected hindrances, embarked for Bombay and Surat, in the Charlotte, the latter end of August.

Mr. Loveless observes, that the harvest, in every direction throughout India is immensely great, and the labourers very few indeed! The miseries of the Heathen, and the wretched state of Europeans and others, called Christians, are beyond description pitiable, and loudly call for help. No hindrances appear to be in the way for zealous, prudent, able Mise sionaries to enter this extensive field, but such as the Devil will always lay in the wav, until Christ shall have put all his enemies under his feet.”

Mr. Loveless's Journal is also come to hand, which contains many curious and interesting particulars ; and will probably appear in a future Nuinber of the Missionary Transactions.

A Letter from Dr. Tavlor, dated August 27, is also received. He was then just on the point of embarking for Bombay. He informs the Directors, that Miss Ross, together with the Baptist Missionaries, who sailed with Captain Wickes, had safely arrived, four days before the date of bis lelter.

.'The safety of our Missionary friends, and the pleasing prospects of use. fulness, which the kind providence of God has opened to their view, call for the warm and devout acknowledgements of the Missionary Society The state of all the Missions in different parts of the globe, will be laid before the Society at large, at their approaching Anniversary. May the glorious Head of the Church crown that Meeting with the tokens of his gracious presence and blessing !

A small Pamphlet is now in the press, drawn up by order of the Directors, containing “ A Concise Account of the Rise and Progress of the Mis, sionary Society.” This has long been needed, that those who have not beca conversant with the Institution from its commencement, may obtain a general view of the Society's efforts to promulgate the gospel of Christ aniong the Ileathen. It will be ready for delivery, gratis, to Subscribers, at the General Meeting; to others, it will be sold at a low price. This Account will probably be translated into Welch and other languages. — Number xvii of the Missionary Transactions, with an Introduction, stating the Procecdings of the Directors, will be ready for publication at the above time, instead of the 1st instant, as was intended.
