The receipts for missionary purposes,

both home and foreign, during the year 1864, were $558,993.26, an increase of $129,224.51 over the previous year; averaging 60-2 per member.

The Educational list gives twenty-three Colleges, two Biblical Institutes, and seventyseven Seminaries, Female Colleges, and Academies.

We have not the original report of 1859 at hand, but our pages gave it in that year, excluding the churches in Liberia and Germany. Doing the same this year, we find a gain of 378 travelling preachers ; 1,110 local preachers; 49,272 members, and a loss of 84,215 probationers, — net loss of members, 34,943.

From the Methodist Almanac, of 1866, we take the following table of the statistics of the Methodist EpisCOPAL CHURCH, collected in 1865:

Last year,

[The last figure of total “ members we make “1” instead of “4,” and “ decrease," therefore, to be 9,288. Against Holston, 48” total preachers should be “45,” to balance line and column.)

The month of October, 1866, is the centenary of American Methodism. What a sum, for our 'ready reckoners,' will be the multiplication of our numbers from the first gathering of six persons for preaching, in Barrack Street, whom the good Barbara Ilick had gathered to the preacher's house, to the numbers that now swell our ranks!”
