MI6SIONS IN EUROPE.

From the Philadelphia Renlembrancer. We have just seen a letter, from the Rev. Thomas Raffles, of Liverpool, (England) addressed

to the Rev. Dr. Ely, of this city, in which the writer states, that Dr. Collyer and himself have engaged to conduct a new Quarterly Publication, to be entitled The Investigator. s'One department of the work,” Mr. R. remarks. "is to be devoted to the literature and religious affairs of America. We have an especial regard to the latter. Our people, on this side the Atlantic, ought to be more generally informed of the great work of God, which you are honored to carry on, on the other and we indulge the hope, that the Investigator may prove an acceptable and authentic channel of communication, and thus become a link in that golden chain of pious and friendly intercourse, which is binding the two coun. tries closer to each other. We shall esteeni ourselves much gratified and indebted by any communication, relative to the progress of religious or literary institutions among you, with which you may be able to furnish us:-and we trust that we may assure ourselves of your kind and friendly disposition towards us. I most sincerely thank you for all your valuable communications, and especially for the interesting work, with which from úme to time you favor me." Mr. Raffles has also transmitted to Dr. Ely, some interesting, late publications, from one of

which we learn that there is in England "A Continental Society," whose object is to propagate the Gospel on the Continent. The Society has several active and enterprising agents who are actually engaged in evangelizing the papists of France and Germany. It seems as if the Man of Sin, the Papal Hierarchy, is shaken by the civil convulsions in France and Spain; but more especially by the plain and repeated preaching of the Gospel by Missionaries, whose very names are, from prudence, concealed from the world. We sball make

some extracts from the Correspondence of the Continental Society. THE COMMITTEE of the CONTINENTAL SOCIETY beg. before they submit the extracts for perusal, to remark, that the communications which they receive from their agents abroad, are very voluminous, and very important. It would afford them pleasure to publish the whole, with the names of the places and persons to which they allude, as they could not fail to excite the most lively interest in the minds of all who are concerned for the spread of the Gospel; who are marking the signs of the times, and hailing the coming of the Son of man, to set up a kingdom that shall never be moved. But the expense of so much printing would be more than the funds of the society could bear; and the objects of the Institution on the continent of Europe would be frustrated, were not the names concealed; therefore some extracts only must suffice as specimens of the whole, and the same method, regarding names and places, must be adopted as in former Bumbers.

The committee beg to call the attention of Christians of every name to the subject of the Continental Society. Relying for support on that spirit of benevolence which so distinguishes the followers of Christ in this country which has already wafted the missionary to the farthest shore, and translated the Scriptures. into every tongue; the directors of the institution have already engaged to support a number of laborers in the Lord's vineyard upon the continent, who travel about from house to house, and from city to city, for the purpose of making known the glad tidings of salvation. In many parts of France, Germany, &c. a most ardent desire is awakened to hear the truth, as the following letters will testify. The people flock, in "trooping multitudes," and welcome the messengers of peace. They cry, "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of them that preach the Gospel, and bring glad tidings of good things.” The sacred scriptures, scattered through the countries, have served to open the people's eyes to the value of the truth; but while they read, they need some man to teach them, and to explain out of the holy books, the things concerning Christ. Extensive fields of usefulness are pointed out, effectual means of doing good are manifested, the harvest is great, abundant laborers are ready to gather it in; and, nothing is wanting but funds. When the importance of the subject is considered, it is trusted that this appeal will not be made in vain.

Copy of a Letter from N-, Sept. 10, 1819. Before I continue the account of my journey I should tell you that at SMI have laid the foundation of a little auxiliary to the Continental Society. I have only, it is true, yet received two payments, five francs from Mrs. K—, and twenty from a woman of the Ban de la Roche, who has sold one of her two cows
