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.

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."
