An appropriate address was delivered by Mr. Waugh, after which he asked for a public recognition of the concurrence of the church at Kingsland in the proposed mission of Mr. Campbell, which was given by Mr. Reyner in a truly affecting manner, de, claratory of the cordial consent of an affectionate people, who conceived
it one of their highest honours to be called to part for a time with their highly esteemed pastor, for the promotion of the Redeemer's kingdom in Africa. The Rev. Mr. Steinkopff, one of the Secretaries of the Bible Society, who is about to depart on a mission to the Bible Societies on the Continent, with his usual fervour and affection, commended Mr. Campbell to the care of the almighty Saviour.

AMERICA. A Missionary Society has lately been established at Phila: delphia for Foreign Missions. Until lately, the Missionary Societies of America directed their attention only to the interior of their own country : but now, in addition to their peedful and laudable endeavours for that purpose, they begin to emulate the original Missionary Society of Britain, and extend their pious efforts to the perishing Heathen ju foreign lands. - God grant that these American iosiitotions may prosper and increase abundantly!
Auxiliary Missionary Societies, With unfeigned pleasure we state that several Auxiliary Societies, in aid of the funds of the Missionary Society, are already formed, and several more are in contemplation. Among the former are the Cambridgeshire Auxiliary Society, the first Annual Meeting or which is to be held at Royston, in the month of October next, when two Ser. fons will be preached, one of the preachers to be provided by the Parent Society in London.
