Subscriptions and Donations in aid of the Baptist Missionary Society will be thankfully received by W. B. Gurney, Esq., and S. M. Peto, Esq., Treasurers, or the Rev. Joseph Angus, M.A., Secretary, at the Mission House, Moorgate Street, LONDON : in EDINBURGH, by the Rev. Christopher Anderson, the Rev. Jonathan Watson, and John Macandrew, Esq.; in Glasgow, by Robert Kettle, Esq.; in Dublin, by John Parkes, Esq., Richmond Street; in Calcutta, by the Rev. James Thomas, Baptist Mission Press; and at New York, United States, by W. Colgate, Esq. Contributions can also be paid in at the Bank of England, to the credit of W. B. Gurney and others.

BREAD! GIVE US BREAD, OR WE PERISH! Soca is the cry which comes from Ireland now. Want, disease, and death, spread themselves over the whole land. The accounts are more distressing than ever; and there is an accumulation of suffering and want which is quite heartrending. If at this distance from the scene of misery it is so affecting, what must be the feelings of those brethren who are in the midst of it? Surely they are to be pitied.

Thanks be to God, the wailing cry has not been disregarded. The response has been truly noble. We are sure that our churches are doing all they can to help, and private individuals are making great sacrifices of money, jewels, and time, in order to provide food and clotlıing. Let the proof be, that now the Relief Fund amounts in the whole to more than THREE THOUSAND POUNDS! And this docs not include some large sums which have been sent through other channels, nor those transmitted direct to some of our agents from their friends in this country.

The importance of supporting these brethren, at the present crisis, will be seen when the extracts from their correspondence are read. It would be dishonouring them, and would be cruel to them, not to afford them the means of distributing relief, when their fellow creatures are dying all around.

While the sub-committee appointed to superintend the large sum placed at their disposal are anxious to do their duty, under a full sense of their responsibility, yet profuse expenditure would be most unwise. The calamity is not eren now at its height; some months must elapse ere its horrors can be stayed. The tide of liberality can scarcely flow on at its present fulness. Regard must be had to the future. But food, clothing, and money, as may appear best, are sent s the agents themselves apply for, from time to time.

But let not our friends relax in their efforts to support the Mission. While you give temporal food, withhold not the means of supplying what is more wantedthe bread of life. Now is the time to give both. Our general funds, as might be expected, are suffering ; but we trust this is only for a time. We urge on all to remember Ireland at a throne of mercy. England cannot remain as she is if Ireland sinks much lower. She will drag this country down too, unless all help to raise her. We cannot shake her off, if we were so disposed. If not saved now, Ireland will be England's ruin ! Alas! we are reaping the fruit of past neglect, and centuries of injustice and wrong.

POSTSCRIPT. We make no apology for the large space occupied by acknowledgments for the Relief Fund. It was necessary they should appear. If this liberality continue, we must publish a double number next month, as missionary intelligence ought not to be suppressed.

In many instances money has been sent to some of our agents direct. We shall be much obliged if in future the parties will apprise us of it, as the committee are then aware how each district is supplied. Besides, it would be well for another

Such sums might appear in the Chronicle, and thus the full amount of what is done by the churches ascertained.

Clothing is now becoming more needful than ever. Many can help in this way, who cannot give money. When packages are ready, if they bave not to come through London to reach Ireland, they can be sent direct; or if they have, and are sent to the Mission House, it will be a great convenience if we are apprised of it by post. In the former case, it will afford us pleasure to inform our friends to what place the articles had better be sent.
