Rev. Reuben Gaylord, ord. 1838, Agent A. H. M. S., Omaha.

* The population of Nebraska,” Br. Gaylord writes us, October 28, “has increased very much within the last year. The Homestead Law is bringiug us settlers. The building of the Pacitic R. R., from Omaha west, is attracting the attention of business men. . . . . Our settlements are considerably scattered, and this makes a demand for itinerant labor. A half dozen devoted, self-denying men could be set at work in this way with great profit to our population, and advantage to our institutions and polity. I have just organized two new churches on one field occupied by one of our missionaries; and if we had the men, of the right stamp, the same results could be reached in other portions of the Territory."

The churches of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick are united (excepting Manchester, St. John, Trin., and St. Stephen, which belongs to Maine Conference) in the “Congregational Union of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick." The lists of churches are sent by Rev. Robert Wilson. “Statistics of our churches," writes the Secretary, Nov. 14, “ I cannot give. Few as they are in number, it has been hard work, during the past few years, to get pastors to settle over them That difficulty, thank God, is now in a great measure surmounted, and we begin to enjoy something like Christian fellowship. The brethren are very much united."

JAMAICA, WEST INDIES. We were promised reports, but failed to receive them. There are, or were, six churches there, under the care of the American Missionary Association.

INDIANA. (Deferred from page 87.) We are requested to insert last year's reports. It is hardly worth while to do more than to insert the totals in the summary. Any one wishing to see its list is referred to last year's issue.

In the above table, note, – 1. The figures in the third column -- "not specified" - do not imply that the number of churches so situated have no “pastors," but that the statistical reports do not distinguish between "pastors" and "stated supplies." Yet the great majority of such churches have "stated supplies” only.

2. The churches “not supplied " - most of them have regular preaching, but no minister engaged for regular service. Further, some of them, apparently nearly a hundred, are supplied by licentiates, Presby terians, or men of other denominations.

3. The sixth column of figures — "condition not reported" – states that the churches reckoned in it make no report whether they have a minister or not. Quite a number do have one; but most of them are doubtless unsupplied.

4. The tenth column of figures includes some pastors, but most reckoned therein are stated supplies; but the failure to report exactly prevents us from distributing them. Stated supplies are often practically equivalent to pastors, - the only difference being the absence of a legal settlement.

5. The number of ministers“ not in pastoral work” is smaller in the table than in truth. Changing from one State to another, many appear in the lists of neither until a succeeding year. Of the 253 names erased this year, two-thirds will re-appear — according to our experience -- and as many more fall out another year. Moreover, in most States only those are included who are members of some Association or Conference. Many of those enumerated are missionaries, preachers to churches of other denominations, chaplains, laborers with the Freedmen, presidents and professors in colleges, teachers, secretaries and agents of benevolent societies, editors, &c. Postmasters, farmers, state-officials, physicians, and the like, ought to be dropped.

6. The 2,889 " total ministers " include such additional as have been found in preparing " List of Ministers."

7. * Benevolent Contributions” do not include current expenses, building, or repairs of churches, paying church debts, or any other local expenses.
