his care packages of clothing for the use of the suffering Mission Churches and Congregations, in South Africa, by whom their bounty will be most thankfully received. The pecuniary donations will be applied to the relief of the most urgent cases, and especially to the purchase of seed-corn, which, at the approaching season, will be of great importance.

Any article of made-up clothing, whether cotton or woollen, will be gratefully accepted, though it is important to observe that materials in the piece will be most valuable, as the African women are generally expert with the needle, and able to cut out the articles as required.

In winter the men dress for the most part in woollen clothing, particularly in jackets and trowsers made of white, brown, or black duffel. In summer they wear a lighter clothing. The women dress in the style of the English peasantry, in prints and shawls, but instead of bonnets or caps, they usually wear a handkerchief round the head. Frocks and pinafores with long sleeves are generally worn by the children,

Spades, sickles, or coarse cutlery would be very acceptable ; and, as we have every reason to believe that many books have been destroyed at our Missionstations, these also would be of great service.

As Mr. Elliott hopes to embark for Africa in the beginning of February, it would be advisable that any packages intended to be committed to his care, should be forwarded to his address, at the Mission House, Blomfield-street, Finsbury, before the 20th of January.

REV. JOHN WARDLAW. We have the pleasure to announce the safe arrival of Mr. and Irs. Wardlaw, at Madras, on the 23rd September, on their way to Bellary. In relating the particulars of their interesting voyage, and their enjoyment of the divine favour while traversing the great deep, our esteemed brother observes :

Through the kind providence of God, I out the voyage; and we conducted, in turn, am privileged once more to address you a prayer-meeting which was held twice from the shores of India. On the evening every day in the cabin of one of our fel. of the 23rd September, our "gallant ship” low-passengers, and which was regularly dropped her anchor in the Madras Roads, attended by about twenty persons.
