movals, but that most of those who remained had been prevailed. upon to attend at Lewishain, where they enjoy the advantage of Divine worship.

It was also stated that a new School had been recently opened for boys only, in Brewhouse-lane, Greenwich. On the first subbath thirteen attended, at present there are twenty six. .

The Rev. Messrs. Percy and Culver suitably addressed the meeting, and it was closed with a hymn and prayer.

ANTIGUA SUNDAY SCHOOL SOCIETY. ON the 29th of May, 1813, a Society was formed in Antigua, terming themselves, “ A Society for the support and encouragement of Sunday Schools in Antigua :" governed by a president, and a committee of eight persons. The number of schools in Jan. 1813, were four, and of scholars seveu hundred; and notwithstanding the great inconvenience caused by a want of proper school-rooms, their improvement gave pleasure to all who at. tended the examinations which took place at Christmas. By a subsequent letter, dated in May last, it appears that they have heard of the sum of £200 having been raised in England, with a view to the erection of school-rooms, and the maintenance of the schools; and though this sum is still far from being adequate to the wants of the poor benighted population of this Island, yet it has greatly served to encourage the exertions of those benevolent individuals who were devoting their time and labour to this object; an object worthy of the charitable consideration of all classes of Christians.

The deficiency of SUNDAY Schools in the Is 1. E of TUANET.

Sir, IN a late visit to the Isle of Thanet, I was deeply affected to find all the villages destitute of Sunday Schools: i need not add that the sad effects arising from the want of instruction were visible; and while beholding them, I could not help ardently wishing for the formation of a Sunday School Union. I knew no way so likely of accomplishing this desiralle end, as informing you, Sir, of these lamentable facts. I liope you will pardon the freedom I have taken; I am sure you will, when you retlect on the feelings that must be excited in conversing with children who are ignorant, and finding them desirous of instruction, and yet uuable to attain it. I likewise feel confident, that if it is in your power to do any thing to promote the best interests of these poor villagers, you will not suffer them to perish for lack of knowledge.Wishing that abundant success may attend all your plans for the promotion of the Redeemer's kingdom,

I remain,
Yours respectfully,

M, R.
