Sabbutariun General Conference.--Minutes have been received.

In the foregoing review it has been thought best to give extracts from the minutes of the associations, and the letters of correspondents, rather than to express the substance in fewer words ; that brethren in each section of our country may read the sentiments of brethren in all other parts of it, in their own language. In a few instances words, or the location of members of sentences, have been varied or transposed, for the sake of brevity ; but without altering the substance or the meaning. It is delightful and animating to observe such a uniformity of impressions, wishes, and purposes such a general determiration, in favour of the grand evangelical design of imparting to the benighted tribes of men the knowledge of salvation by Jesus Christ.

Extracts from the records of the Sansom-street Baptist Female

Society for promoting Foreign Evangclical Missions. From the report of the managers at the annual meeting of the society, Jų. ly, 1816:

The managers have ordered a letter to be written to sister Judson in Ran. goon, with a view of encouraging her in her present sphere of holy toil and peril

, and assuring her of their resolution to assist the mission as the Lord may be pleased to enable them.”

At a meetnig of the society, December 4, 1815—“ It was moved and seconded that our sister, Mrs. Judson, be an honorary member of this society.” Resolved, that our sister CHARLOTTE H. White, be an honorary member "This society, in much affection and regard for their sister Mrs. JUDSON, now a missionary in the East Indies, unite in tendering her a testimony of the interest they feel in her peculiar situation, and in the blessed cause in which she is engaged :- They therefore appropriate the sum of thirty dollars for the procuring some acceptable present.”

This sum was placed into the hands of a committee for carrying the object into effect. The duty was fulfilled with affection, and prudence.

M

of this society.”

This Table is arranged according to what is conceived to be the most convenient geographical relatius at the country

The associations belonging to each state are placed together, and ranged according to the dates of their respective constitutious. In cases of two or more being found in the same state to fare leta constituted in the same year, the letters of the alphabet decide the point of precedence. I hose, the date whose constitutions, is not yet ascertained are place after the others. Of the 126 associations, there we' of the number, of whose churches inviorination has not yet been received: but they probably

cuan! more than 40.---This added to 2541, will give the whole numiar oi churches in 120 associatious, at 25$1. I 121 of these, there are 1568 orlamed ministers, and 305 licentiate preachers. Allowing about the same pr. portion of preachers as of churches to the other 5 associations, will make up thom puniber 1586 ordained. 367 unordainel, preachers :-2581 churches, and only 1953 preachers ! “ Pray ye therefore the Lord of harvest, that he will send forth labourers.” As appears by the minutes of 1815, ihere were baptized in the ** in 86 of the associations, 400". Allowing the same proportion to the other 40, on whose minutes those bat tized are not distinguished from those received by letter, will give 2139 : whole number annunlly bapti: 6739. All the members belonging to 109 of the associations, as seen on tie preceding table, amount fri 158,508. The same proportion will give to the other 17, 24722: total of all these associations 18.936.

It is hoped, that the associations against whose names appear [blanks] in the preceding table will askeri as convenient, take measures to supply Uiose indications on their minutes, annually, wbich will eander to render the table complete. It is desirable to know these things. " Is a candle brougit to lx ptt *** a bushel !" " He that doeth truth comath to the light.
