at the mission station, and in the surrounding country. The number of native females who have received Christian instruction at this station has been but small, owing to the strong aversion prevalent among the Hindoos against the education of their women.

English Services. Stated English services were instituted shortly after the commencement of the mission. In April, 1821, a Christian church was formed, composed of 31 members, chiefly consisting of soldiers. In the following year there was an addition of 40 members, of whom 8 were con. verts from Popery. In 1823 a Sabbath-school was commenced. From this year till 1830, with some intervening fluctuations, the congregation increased, till, in the latter year, it was found necessary to enlarge the chapel. This chapel, which is called the Mission Chapel, is usually crowded with attentive hearers ; and the preaching of the Gospel therein, we are happy to say, has been blessed to the conversion of many, especially among the military. In 1830 the number of communicants was 33, and, in the following year, the church received an addition of 3 members.

· We cannot conclude this article without observing, that the missionaries who have laboured, and still labour, at this station, have done and now do so, under peculiar local restrictions, and other disadvantages, resulting, chiefly, from the circumstance of the station not being under the British Government, but under that of the Rajah of Mysore. " The difference of feeling (says the late Deputation of the Society to the stations in this, and other remote parts of the world,) shown in those provinces which are under the English Government, from what is seen within the territories of the independent Rajahs, cannot but excite the fervent prayer, that the time may soon come when the yet independent provinces of India may be added to the English dominions. In the one case, every facility is given to missionary efforts, and, in the other, every obstacle is opposed to the propagation of the Gospel.” The members of the Society will unite in praying that, either by means of the triumph of that Gospel over the native princes, and other native authorities in the East Indies, or by the beneficent operations of Providence, or by both, all obstacles to the dissemination of Christianity in India may be speedily removed ; and that the labours of the missionaries at this station, and all the other stations in that part of the world, may be prosecuted free from all political restrictions, and with extensive and still-enlarging success.
