Mr. D. is indefatigable in his exertions among the twenty christian villages under his charge. He told ine, the average number of families embracing Christianity, was about two per month. During the seven years he has laboured among them, he does not think that above twenty individuals have drawn back, although every possible inducement is held out to them for doing so.
I left Barripore for Tallygunge, whence I accompanied our dear friend, the Rev. D. Jones, to Sajnaborea and Jangera. At Sajnaborea, I expounded in the chapel, which was formerly a heathen temple; and at Jangera, I also expounded to a congregation of about 200, on John üi. It was harvest time ; and being Monday, many villagers were out at work, and could not attend. After the service, I catechised some of them; and was delighted with the correctness of their heartfelt answers. Mr. Jones is a good pastor of his flock.
One poor old woman, in particular, (I shall never forget her, as long as I live,) with hardly clothes to cover her emaciated body, and blind with age, told me, when I asked her if she loved her Saviour, " Ah, sir, I do trust in my Saviour, and love him ; but I know no more, so do not ask me any thing else.” The other females I quesrioned, and who returned their answers
with the modesty and decorum unknown to a heathen woman, struck me much by their knowledge of the scripture and articles of faith, although most of them cannot read. This is an important point -the education of females. I have strongly urged our missionaries to devote much attention to that branch of their duties. It is by converting the mothers when young, that we shall have influence over the rising generation. I shall endeavour in England to raise a fund specially devoted to that purpose. One village only in the Tallygunge station has drawn back.
I returned to Bishop's College, blessing God with an overflowing heart, for all I had seen and heard. I was prevented from visiting the missionary station of Bowescotty, under our friend the Rev. J. Bowyer. It is prospering through the blessing of God. But when we riflect that these blessed fruits have been produced by Bishop's College-and that the Christions of Barripore, Tallygunge, and Bowescotty, in all about 2000, owe their spiritual birth to the efforts of zealous men educated within the walls of the College, have we not cause to thank God from the bottom of our hearts praying He may give increase to the seed we sow—and bid us take courage for the future?
