ChristiAN FRIENDs,
The above print represents

a curious Taj, or heathen temple in miniature, which has lately been presented to the Society by the Missionaries at Calcutta, and is now placed in the Mission House. It was brought from Burmah. The lower part is hollow, the front opens on hinges, and displays a gilded idol within, exactly resembling that of which we gave a drawing in our Quarterly Paper for October last, No. 20. These temples, though very heavy, are carried about in their idolatrous processions on mens' shoulders; and as they are covered with gilding and small pieces of glass of various colours, they make a splendid appearance in the sun. But, after all, what “ lying vanities” are these ! We hope that when you look either on such objects themselves, or on representations of them like that before you, you will not merely view them as curiosities, or wonder that people should be so foolish as to honour such deities, or engage in such worship. Meditate upon them as the practical symbols of the most fearful evil which has ever visited our hapless race—as constituting the highest practical insult ever offered to the infinite Creator and Lord of all—for such is the genuine character of idolatry—and then you will surely feel a warmer glow of gratitude in being delivered from such a curse yourselves, and deeper compassion for the vast multitudes who are to this day living and dying under the influence of these horrid delusions.

One excellent Missionary who laboured and suffered for several years in this very country of Burmah, has lately been removed by death.' We refer to Mrs. Judson, of whose afflictions and perils a brief statement was given in our last number but one. A more detailed account of the same afflicting scenes from her own pen was inserted in the Missionary Herald, for January and February

last. Probably, you could not read that narrative without tears of sympathy for her sufferings, and tears of joy for their happy termination. But, at that moment, all tears had been wiped from her eyes; her warfare was ended; and she had been admitted into the pure and peaceful region where the wicked cease from troubling, and the weary are at rest. May we be followers of them, who through faith and patience are inheriting the promises, and count every thing vain and trifling compared with a scriptural hope of finally attaining the same unut. terable bliss:

A ChristiAN FRIEND, who spent many .. in India in the military profession, as lately sent us the following pleasing account of a young man, now living at Nagpore, a large city, nearly 600 miles south-west of Calcutta. It is another interesting proof of the benevolent tendency of genuine religion, and the happy effects which, under the divine blessing, may proceed from disinterested efforts to promote the good of our fellow creatures. “Soon after my arrival at Nagpore, in 1806, an old invalid soldier came there very ill and distressed, whom I often visited to read to him. Henry Antone, then a very little boy, was in his family, and I obtained the soldier's consent that he should be educated under my care with a few others, the children of European Portuguese parents. Henry, in a time of distress and famine, was bought of a Mahratta family, (and who also had purchased him), for one Rupee, or half a crown, so that he could not tell who his arents were. While with the Mahratta }. he led a wandering life, begging from door to door. From the time he came under my roof, I had the daily satisfaction of witnessing his great attention to his learning, the delight he took in the Scriptures, and his very modest and amiable disposition. He rendered himself very useful in reading the Mahratta and Hindostanee Testaments and Tracts to those natives who daily came to my house to be instructed in them: he was also of great assistance in my native school. There being no place of worship at Nagpore, Sunday, in the af. ternoon, the parents of the native boys attended for divine worship, when the Scriptures and of the Liturgy, translated into Hindoostanee, were read, in which they all felt a pleasing interest. These means were savingly blessed, 1 trust, to a poor Hindoo, who, a few days before his death, felt much delight and spiritual consolation under the word. The day before this poor man died he was brought into my house, where he declared openly his hope and faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation, as he was well assured his idols could do him no good. Then breaking off a necklace, the badge of his idol worship, he cast it away from him, thus bearing his testimony to the truth of the gospel of Christ. “In 1814, I had the pleasure of receiving into my family, from Serampore, une of their native Christians, a converted Brahmin, named Ram Mohun, who, when a youth, according to the
