of native children, who were here reclaimed from their heathenish customs, and taught to read the Sacred Scriptures. Two native men at Grand Cape Mount, being brought to the knowledge of the truth, were baptized; both of whom manifest a strong desire to labor for the salvation of their fellow countrymen. A young man, named John Revey, who has been teaching school eight years in Africa, was received into the fellowship of the church by baptism, about two years ago

The native mission school was removed from Monrovia to Grand Cape Mount, and placed under his care. The native kings were ans. ious that this school should be supported, and it continued to prosper until the death of our Missionary. We have learned that one of the Swiss Missionaries has since taken charge of the school, though the natives greatly prefer an English or American teacher. The Baptist church at Monrovia, consisting now of about one hundred members, and a Missionary Society in that town, remain as evidences of the fidelity and success with which our Missionary performed the duties of his station. It is a source of consolation to the friends of Mr Cary, that though his life was terminated in an unexpected moment, and in a most distressing manner, the unwearied diligence and fidelity with which he discharged the important trust confided to his care-his zeal for the honor of religion, and the purity and piety of his general conduct, have gained him a reputation which must live in grateful remembrance, as long as the interesting Colony exists, in whose service he lived and died. Your Committee cannot help expressing their regret, that so small a portion of benevolent feeling has been exercised towards this Mission, and that so little has been accomplished during the eight years of its existence. They believe, however, that what has been done ought to animate us to more enlarged and vigorous efforts for its future support and prosperity.

When it is considered that the American Colonization Society have already introduced hundreds of our people into Africa, and that there is reason to believe assuredly, that they will soon have thousands there—that the trade with that country is rapidly increasing—that a respectable church of our own denomination already exists in Monrovia, which is prepared with a Missionary Society there to aid our operations--that the natives greatly desire the es. tablishing of schools and the preaching of the gospel-that Missionaries can be supported there, under these circumstances, for one fourth of the amount requisite for the maintenance of Missionaries in the east, or even on our own frontiers—and that they can immediately commence their work in their own language, may we not hope that soine brethren of competent talents will be found to offer themselves for this noble work, and that a spirit of liberality and of prayer, on this behalf, will pervade the churches throughout our happy and prosperous country?

Your Committee have not had sufficient time to give to this subject all the consideration which it demands, yet they indulge the hope that the importance of the object, and the facilities for obtaining it, thus briefly and imperfectly stated, may, through the blessing of God, serve to awaken the minds of our churches to this subject.

We recommend the adoption of the following resolutions :

Resolved, That this Convention cherish a grateful recollection of the selfdenying labors of our late lamented Missionary to Africa, Rev. Lott Cary; and that we sympathize with his family, the American Colonization Society, and the church at Monrovia, in the loss they have sustained in his death.

Resolved, That it be recommended to the Board, to take measures for supplying the vacancy occasioned by the death of brother Cary, as soon as possible, by an able white Missionary: And that they endeavor to the utmost of their power, to promote the success of this Mission, as one in which the Convention feel a special interest.

S. CORNELIUS, Chairman.
