interior, another missionary is to be sent to Cape Town by the
Committee. SIERRA LEONE. A Colony belonging to Great Britain, on
the Western Coast of Africa. CHURCH MISSIONART SOClEm--1804. The
Society, after supplying, by its missionaries, for many years, the
chaplaincy of the colony, had the happiness to recommend to
government the Rev. William Garnon as first, and the Rev. John
Collier as second chaplain, of the colony. These clergymen will
cordially co-operate in the various plans for benefitting Sierra
Leone; and will render the Society every assistance in the conduct
of its missions. The Rev. H.C. Decker lately sailed for the colony.
In order to place the education of youth, throughout the colony, on
a uniform and efficient plan, the society has made proposals to
government, to take on itself the charge of the colonial as well as
the country schools; that is, those which are established in Free
Town for the children of the settlers, as well as those which are
formed in the Negro towns in the colony. See, in this list, under
the heads, Free Town, Liecester Mountain, Kissey Town, Regent's
Town, Gloucester Town, Leojiold Town, Wilberforce Town. CEYLON. The
encouragement wisely given by government to the benevolent attempts
to evangelize this noble island, has led to strenuous exertions, in
which various bodies of Christians are taking their share. LONDON
