met with in a secluded recess of Mount Lebanon, unsuspected and undisturbed by those who have been long accustomed to grieve over the few such trees of the Lord' that have been left near to Ehden, representing those forests, from which the King's palace and the Temple in Jerusalem were built."

In an Oriental and American review it is remarked :

• When the friends of science shall have undertaken scientific journeys for the purpose of exploring the great public and private libraries of China, whose number is immense, and the preservation of which has been the object of the greatest care, they may probably find a number of literary monuments, which will prove as so many revelations in the midst of the old Chinese world, whose destiny on earth may prove to have been to preserve to us the vestiges of primitive and forgotten races and ages in the history of the globe.”

THE CONFERENCE ON ISRAEL.

THE

WE have been requested also to direct attention to a pamphlet containing four papers* read at the Conference, Mildmay-park, on the 26th and 27th of June, 1872, ON THE PROBABLE ISRAELITISH ORIGIN OF ENGLISH NATION, the Right Rev. the Anglican Bishop from Jerusalem in the chair. We have only space to give an outline of its contents.

The Right Rev. Dr. Gobat expressed himself clearly and firmly, that a solid ground for the Anglo-Saxon Israelitish hypothesis existed in the fact that nowhere else had any nation been found fulfilling the required conditions of Scripture. He remarked that the meeting was convened to invite Christians to the reverent and prayerful consideration of the question. The first paper was written by the Rev. Jacob Tomlin, M.A., Vicar of Irchester, Northamptonshire. It was read by Dr. Holt Yates, with subsequent remarks.

Proposition 1.-"That the view of our Israelitish origin meets the requirements of prophecy regarding the House of Israel in the latter days before the second advent of our Lord in glory ; when Judah shall look on Him whom they have pierced and mourn.

The second paper is by the Rev. John Goss Tipper, M.A., of St. Bartholomew's, Gray's-inn-road.

Proposition 2.-“That the view of our Israelitish origin brings forth the Church as in the position declared by the prophet (Micah v. 3), inviting the Jew to return unto the children of Israel, whilst it silences the scoffs of the infidel and rationalist at the apparent failure of the covenant promises made with Israel.”

Proposition 3.— By Professor C. Piazzi Smyth, Astronomer Royal for Scotland ; read by Dr. Protheroe Smith, with subsequent remarks :

" That our national and hereditary weights and measures add signal confirmation to the belief in our national and hereditary Israelitish descent.”

Proposition 4.-By Henry James Layman, of the Church of England :“That the view of our Israelitish origin affords intelligent ground for our

cry for the outpouring of the latter rain' that the personal witness of God the Holy Ghost may reveal and confirm the mystery of Israel, bearing in mind that the latter rain of the Spirit is to be on Israel and Judah (see Joel ii. 21—29, and Zech, x. 1.)”

LEAVES FROM THE PIONEERS' JOURNALS.

At the season when most of our London ladies are away from their homes in the City, seeking rest and refreshment by lake and sea-side or on mountain and moorland, we turn to the journals of those useful substitutes in our Mission body-our nine PIONEERS, with whom we can maintain unceasing relationwho do, in their turns, get a fortnight's holiday, but who are otherwise the friends of the poor in all the seasons, and who see them alike in summer's heat and winter's cold ; who watch

year by year the changes in their humble histories, and fill up the lack of service from many a Lady who would be happier far than she is, if she had a poor mothers' class to think of, and correspond with in her autumn absences.

The jottings we get from these persevering helpers are very life-like. They often come from a district where there is no Lady Superintendent to be had, and where the Bible-woman can write but little, though she can tell much by word of mouth. The Pioneer visits with her weekly, and afterwards takes her Mothers' Meeting; and can thus be helpful to four or five Biblewomen in the course of a week. She makes her own monthly report to the centre of the Mission, the financial affairs of each district being settled likewise monthly, but at another time, with the Bible-women themselves.

We often know in detail far more about the state of these “ pioneer districts,” and concerning the welfare of souls in them, than we do from Ladies who cannot give the time and love which domiciliary visitation requires. We seldom hold our monthly meetings without hearing of some one who has passed away, and to whom all our opportunities of usefulness are over

for ever.
