Assuming the causes specified lobe the true ones the remedy is apparent. It ...

E. Corderoy Esq of London next deliver- ed a very eloquent address. After an eloquent tribute to the value of the Bible the speaker gave some interesting statistics in reference to the Bible Societies comparing the present year with 1804. In 1804 there were but few Societies exist- ing for the circulation .of the Bible; in 1847 there are 9000 Societies having his distinctive feature; in IS04 there were but comparatively' few copies of the Bible in the world.
