6. The Baptist Board for Foreign Missions. Income, dols. 20,000.
The income of other societies whose object, with one or two exceptions, is the same, dols. 142,645 ; making a total of dols. 641,439.
Thus England and the United States alone expend, by means of these societies, to say nothing of what is contributed in other ways, for benevolent purposes more than two millions, five hundred thousand dollars annuully. In addition to this, probably not less than 1,500,000 children receive instruction in their Sabbath schools from at least 150,000 teachers, who thus make a weekly donation of 25,000 days' time to the cause of benevolence.
Let this benevolent spirit continue to increase, and it will soon fill every dark place with light, and cause the whole world to rejoice in its genial in. fluence. Let it progress during the next 40 years in the same ratio in which it has during the last 40, and wherever it is allowed to extend its operation, it will give every child an opportunity to attend a school, give every slave his liberty, enable every individual to hear the gospel preached, and give to every family that will receive it, a copy of the word of God. But opposition and reverses are to be expected, and the grand result, the univer. sal diffusion of the blessings of science and Christianity, will probably not be witnessed within so short a period as that just named. Yet the above statements show an increase of benevolence at which every friend of man must rejoice. It is the true “ glory of the age.” Viewed in connection with the promises of God it may justly be regarded as a sure indication that the true golden age of the world, when knowledge, virtue, and happiness will be universal, is fast approaching.
