About that time a lady who resided there, was called to visit some friends in the West, and during her absence was thrown under religious influences, which resulted in her serious conversion as she believed. Immediately her heart became interested in the spiritual state of the place of her residence, and she returned to it determined by the grace of God enabling her, to undertake something on its behalf.

While walking to her place the first morning, she met the gentleman who now made this state...

Benevolent Labors of De Wette and his Widow.—A special fund for the relief of the widows of evangelical clergy of Moravia, was founded by the late Professor De Wette, of Basle, in connexion with the" Geneva Society for the support of scattered Protestants. More than a year since De Wette's widow took a journey into this province to acquaint herself by actual observation with the wants of its Protestant population: according to her account, since published, the condition of the clergy and their widows, is, in many instances, truly pitiable; the latter being sometimes compelled to betake themselves to menial pursuits for a living. One of the Rothschilds, Israelite though he was, had come to the assistance of a church in very needy circumstances by a contribution of 250 francs—an act of liberality which Madame De Wette holds up to the imitation of Protestant Christians.

Algiers.—The Special Field of Labor of the Basle Protestant Aid Society is Algiers, where the Romish priests seek in every way to interfere with the scattered little communities of evangelical Christians. Nevertheless, through the undaunted zeal of the pastor, Duerr, the cause of Protestantism has been constantly gaining in that country. The schools in Blida contain 500, those in Bona 2000, and the Orphan Houses at Delhi-Ibrahim 123 children of evangelical families. The Evangelist Jus tor has succeeded in gathering a little church of Spanish Protestants at Oran. At their first communion, last Easter, fortytwo Spaniards took part. But the outward condition of the new converts is a sad one, as they were obliged to renounce the situations they previously held, upon forsaking the Romish faith.
