At the Twenty-eighth Annual Meeting of the Church Missionary Society for Africa and the East, held in Freemasons' Hall, Great Queen Street, on Tuesday, May 6, 1828.

The Right Hon. LORD GAMBIER, Vice-Patron and President, in the Chair.

The Report of the Committee having been read by the Secretaries, and the Statement of the Accounts of the Twenty-eighth Year,

On a Motion by William Wilberforce, Esq., seconded by the Rev. Wm. Dealtry, REsolved UNANIMOUSLY,

That the Report, an Abstract of which has been read, be printed, under the direction of the Committee; and that while this Meeting laments the deficiency in the Income of the Society, it records its grateful sense of the kindness of those friends by whose aid that deficiency has been in some measure retrieved, and earnestly solicits their continued exertions and liberality in order to the maint and extension of its Missionary undertakings.

On a Motion by the Hon. and Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry, seconded by the Rev. Henry Budd,

Resolved UNANIMoUsly,

That the sincere thanks of the Meeting be given to the Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of Winchester, for his Sermon before the Society last evening; to the Noble President of the Society; the other Vice-Patrons, and Vice-Presidents; and to all those Friends who, during the past year, have ererted themselves in its behalf; and that the following Gentlemen are appointed the Committee for the ensuing year, with power to fill up vacancies. (See List, after Vice-Presidents.)

On a Motion by the Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of Sodor and Man, seconded by the Rev. Edward Craig, one of the Secretaries of the Edinburgh Auxiliary, Resolved UNANIMously, That, adverting to the difficulty of prosecuting Missionary undertakings in the countries around the Mediterranean, this Meeting rejoices in the number of Publications which have been issued from the Press at Malta, and in the prospect of its extended operations; regarding this mode of *:::::: the light of Christianity as a valuable auxiliary, under the Divine blessing, to the more direct labours of the Missionary.

On a Motion by the Rev. Thomas T. Thomason, Chaplain on the Bengal Establishment, seconded by the Rev. Benjamin Allen, Rector of St. Paul's, Philadelphia,

REsolved UNANIMously,

That, while the Meeting is impressed with a lively sense of the dangers to which the New-Zealand Mission is erposed, it desires to express its gratitude to God for the protection hitherto so signally afforded to His servants there, and for the encouragements which He has given to the Society's Missionaries in their arduous work, both in New Zealand and in its Eastern Missions.

On a Motion by the Hon. and Rev. Baptist W. Noel, seconded by the Rev. George
Hazlewood, Assistant Secretary of the Hibernian Auxiliary,

REsolved UNANIMoUsly,

That this Meeting regards the trials incident to the prosecution of the great object which the Society has in view, not as grounds of discouragement, but as occasions of closer scrutiny into the motives and principles on which that object is pursued, # more entire renunciation of selfdependence, and of more simple reliance on the agency of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will.

On a Motion by the Hon. and Rev. Gerard Thomas Noel, seconded by the Rev. Hugh M'Neile, Resolved UNANIMously, That this Meeting regards the scarcity of suitable Candidates for Missionary labour as a call on the #. Christ for more earnest prayer that He would, according to His promise, pour out His Holy Spirit on His servants, and send forth more Labourers into those fields which are whitening to the harvest.
