At the General Meeting of the Society, held on Tuesday, the 1st of February, 1842, the Secretary read the recommendation made by the Standing Committee at the last General Meeting ; namely, “ That a Grant of One Thousand Pounds be made towards the support of Divinity Students in Trinity College, Scotland ; to be paid when it shall be certified that the sum required for the erection of the buildings has been raised.”
A Grant of One Thousand Pounds was accordingly made for this purpose.
The Secretary then laid before the Board the following recommendation made by the Standing Committee at the last Meeting:
“ The Standing Committee beg to report to the Board, that they have taken into consideration the subjects connected with the expedition to Kurdistan, together with some recent communications respecting the state of religion in that and the neighbouring countries; and they beg to recommend, that the sum of Five Hundred Pounds be placed at the disposal of his grace the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Lord Bishop of London, for the purpose of promoting the objects of the Society in Chaldea and Kurdistan."
A Grant of Five Hundred Pounds was made accordingly.
A portion of a letter was read from Edward Masson, Esq. of Athens, in which, speaking of the Society's having undertaken to print the Holy Scriptures and other works for the use of the Greek Church,
" Your undertaking has been sanctioned and extolled by a solemn and unanimous act of the Synod (of Greece), and will be heartily encouraged by the king.
The principle of non-interference is beginning to be understood here, and to accomplish admirable effects. If your Society and the Church of England but adhere to that principie, they may accomplish wonders in the East. If they do not adhere to it, I fear nine-tenths of the good that might be done will be frustrated.''
The following Members of the Society were elected as the Committee of General Literature and Education for the year ensuing :--The Dean of Chichester, J. L. Adolphus, Esq., the Rev. John Allen, Thomas Bell, Esq., Rev. Professor Browne, Rev. Thomas Dale, Rex. Professor Hall,

79, Pall Mall, Feb. 4, 1842. The following extracts from a letter of the Bishop of Newfoundland, dated 16th Nov. 184), will be read with much satisfaction by all who take an interest in the progress which the Church is making in that colony :
" It would not be easy to express the deep gratitude which I feel to Almighty God, and the noble Society which has been the instrument for enabling me to bring the lately drooping Church of this colony into its present healthy and vigorous condition.
“ I have the happiness to know, that not only has the number of churches, schools, ministers, and teachers been largely increased, but that the principles of Church unity, doctrine, and discipline are now gaining ground in this community, and beginning to produce their legitimate effect.
* The district missionary now inspects and exercises a just influence over the school with which he had been heretofore disconnected. His people, awakened to a sense of the importance of Christian education in direct union with the Church, willingly enrol themselves as members of a Diocesan Church Society, whose object is the support of those institutions, and I look forward with inexpressible satisfaction to the prospect of a gradual supply of wellqualitied missionaries from the seminary of lay-readers and students in theology, which the exceeding liberality of your Society has enabled me to found.
“ But while I am writing on this subject I would beg leave to invite the attention of the Society more especially to the new missions which have been this year commenced.
In several of these, founded amongst a people poor to the utmost extremity of poverty, and where both churches and school-houses are to be built, at least partially, at their expense, it will be absosolutely impracticable to find any perma

CHURCH MISSIONARY SOCIETY.
Ordination of Missionaries.—The Rev. Frederick A. Hildner was admitted to priests' orders, and the Rev. John R. T. Lieder, Mr. Isaac Brittain, and Mr. Samuel Franklin, to deacons' orders, by the Lord Bishop of London, on the 19th of December.
Departure of Missionaries.—The Rev. F. A. Hildner and Mrs. Hildner embarked at London, on board the steamer, on the 6th instant, on their return to Syra.
The state of the Rev. G. A. Kissling?s health having unfitted him to resume his labours in Sierra Leone, his services have been transferred to the New Zealand mission. Mr. Kissling and Mrs. Kissling, and Mr. Seymour Mills Spencer and Mrs. Spencer, sailed from Plymouth, on board the “ Louisa Campbell," on the 17th ult., for New Zealand. Mr. and Mrs. Spencer embarked at Gravesend on the 6th, and Mr. and Mrs. Kissling at Plymouth, on the 16th ult.
The Rev. C. F. Schlienz, is again suffering from severe indisposition.
nent lodgement for the missionary, unless some aid may be obtained from your board, for the erection of this humble dwelling. In Fortune Bay, in the bays of St. George and Placentia, at Burin, on the Cape shore, and in the district comprising King's Cove, and Salvage in Bonavista Bay, the missionaries and their families are literally houseless wanderers, and pursuing their arduous labours under difficulties and perils which God's special grace can alone enable them to sustain.
“ Unwilling as I am to tax the funds of the Society for the erection of parsonagehouses, which generally the people ought certainly to provide, I must implore their assistance in behalf of these zealous and distressed labourers in the more desolate parts of the Lord's vineyard.
" I would not devolve on the Society the cost of a single pound that might be borne by the people, whom their missionaries instruct ; but in the instances to which I refer, without the aid of the Society, the privations of their servants would be insupportable.
" There are a few capable persons in this country who have not been penurious in the support which they have given to our Church. Mr. Slade, a merchant whom I met in the course of my northern visitation, has liberally contributed to the building of fire churches in his vicinity, and has lately promised to complete a tower and steeple for the church of Twillingate, at the cost of 7001. from his private funds.
“ A planter at the same place who was recently at the point of death, but who has since recovered, has bequeathed his whole substance, amounting to 20001., to the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, to whose ministers 'he has felt himself indebted during fifty years for all the comforts of our blessed religion. These are instances of pious benevolence worthy of record, and I gladly relate them, as auspicious of the spread of true piety in this land.”
NATIONAL SCHOOL SOCIETY.
The Society has recently received two very liberal donations of 100l. each ; one from the Bishop of Durham, being his lordship's second contribution, and the other from the Cambridge Church Union. The grants of the Society within the last two months towards building, fitting up, and enlarging school-rooms, amount to 1938., and have been voted to the following places, viz. :-Somborn Kings, Chalford, Wrecclesham, Barnsley St. Mary, Walcot St. Swithin, Bishop's Tawton, Diss, Heywood, Ripon, Chorley (Botany Bay),
