It is expected that the annual accounts will in future be made up to June 20, inclusive, which will be the anniversary of the Act of Incore poration; and the state of the Treasury, at the time of the annual meeting, will be ascertained by a supplementary account like the following.

The payment of the sums here specified was authorized by orders of the Prudential Committee from No. 1 to No. 22, inclusive. It was thought preferable to publish the expenses in this way, rather than to give the accounts at large under their several dates, as the reader may now see at one glance the amount expended for each particular object.

Total $9,558 63 It will be recollected, that the annual salary voted to a married missionary is $666,66, and to an unmarried missionary S444,44 which are the sums allowed by the London Missionary Society to their missionaries. The outfit voted was the same as a year's salary. The aggregate of the ouifits, (includ. ing some expenses for medicines, &c.) as aciually paid, is, therefore, $1,038, 14 less than was authorized by the vote of the Board. This difference is imputable to two causes: first, the funds of the Board were scanty at the time the outfits were made up; and, secondly, the parents and other friends of the missionaries, and particularly of their wives, partly furnished them with such articles as were sui:ed to their arduous undertaking.

The apparent inequality of the outfits is accounted for in this manner: After the missionaries were partially furnished from their own resources, or by their particular friends, each one gave an estimate of such articles as he deemed necessary to complete his outfit. These articles, having been ap. proved by the Prudential Committee, were purchased.

The donations devoted to form a permanent fund already received by the Board amount to $756; and those devoted exclusively to the translation of the Scriptures amount to $394, 81.

• This town is in the limits of the Foreign Missionary Society of Northampton and the neighboring towns. † This donation was accompanied by the following note.

"To the Editor of the Panoplist, DEAR SIR, I ENCLOSED you last year a few Hints, one of which was a ten dollar bill. (See Pan. for Nov, last, p. 209.). As your readers will probably conclude, that the money was the best hint, I cheerfully enclose another ten dollar bill, being the First Fruits of the second year. Were it in my power, the sum should have been larger. can only add my fervent prayer, that the Lord our Righteousness would arise and scatter his enemies, and make those who hate him flee before him; and cause his glo. rious Gospel to spread far and wide by the power of his Holy Spirit, until the whole carth shall be filled with his glory. I remain, yours in the Lord, A'SUBSCRIBER.
