The Rev. GEORGE F. SEYMOUR, D. D., Professor of Ecclesiastical History in

the General Theological Seminary, New York City, respectfully reports :

That since the last Convention, in addition to his duties in the General Theological Seminary, he remained as Rector, in charge of St. John's Church, Brooklyn, N. Y., until the Feast of the Epiphany, 1867, when the Rey. Alexander Burgess, D.D., who had been elected to succeed him, was able to enter upon his duties. From the fifth Sunday after Easter he has been temporarily supplying the place of the Rev. Dr. Washburn, who is absent in Europe, in Calvary Church, New-York City. During the present month (September) he has accepted the position of Chaplain of the House of Mercy, 86th-street and Broadway. In addition to his official acts recorded in St. John's Parish, Brooklyn, N. Y., and Calvary Parish, New-York City, he has baptized one adult, solemnized two mar. riages and attended two funerals.

The Rev. G. W. PORTER reports as follows:

During the last Conventional year my home has been in Walpole, in the Diocese of Nevr. Hampshire, where (in St. Peter's Parish) I have officiated in the functions and duties of my sacred office, excepting the period of three months, during which I bad charge of St. Ann's Parish, Brooklyn, N. Y.

The Rev. ORSAMUS H. SMITH reports as follows:

I have held service once in four weeks at Hurd's Corners, in Pawling, and officiated in other places as there has been occasion. Baptisms, (ad. 1, inf. 3,) 4. Marriages, 2. Ono funeral. Administered Communion at Hurd's Corners twice,

The Rev. S. S. STOCKING reports as follows:

Agreeably to the requisitions of the Canon, I beg leave to report to you, that since my transfer to this Diocese last spring, I have officiated each Sunday in the morning in Graco Church, South Oyster Bay, and in the evening, by special request of the Rector, the Rev. Reuben Riley, in Trinity Parish, Babylon.

I have baptised two infants, and buried one.

The Rev. A. C. TREADWAY reports as follows:

As my health and strength permitted, and occasion offered, I assisted my brethren in the two Churches in Oswego in the usual duties of parochial work up to the middle of April last, when I left New-York for California. I arrived at the U. S. Navy Yard, Mare Island, to which place I was bound on a visit to my daughter, the fourth of the following month. Soon after which I commenced services at Vallejo, a town immediately across the Bay or Strait, where, within the three months just elapsed, a large congregation has been gathered, and a Church has been organized. Two lots of ground, eligibly situated, have been presented to the Vestry, and a subscription is in considerable forwardness for a handsome edifice, the corner-stone of which, it is expected, will be laid in the course of the present autumn, and the work forthwith commenced. The Bishop of California has made us one visit, and will shortly be again requested to come up and confirm the newly baptized, and others who are now awaiting their first Communion.

We have already between 20 and 80 Communicants, and the prospect is regarded as being very favorable and encouraging, considering that till the present course of services here commenced the last of June only, the Church here was almost entirely unknown.

Vallejo (pronounced Vallaho) is a place of some 5,000 souls, and is supported in part by the artizans and mechanics employed in the Navy Yard.

I have also rendered one service at Colusa, in Colusa County, where I have had offered a valuable lot of ground for a Church, and where the services of a Church will be gladly received, well attended and partially supported. Almost the entire State of Cali. fornia is strictly missionary ground; and, as far as my limited knowledge of the country and its inhabitants enable me to form an opinion, I feel quite free to express the belief, that no Diocese in the whole number will more richly and speedily repay the Church for the help so much needed at present in the establishing and sustaining for a brief period its earnestly sought services.

The Rev. WILLIAM WALTON, D. D., Instructor in the Hebrew Language in

the General Theological Seminary in the City of New York, reports as follows : Said prayers, in whole or in part, 68 times. Preached, 39 times. Baptized one infant (publicly.) Assisted at one funeral. Administered Holy Communion, 7 times, (publicly,) and assisted in the same, 4 times.

The Rev. J. P. APPLETON, New-York, reports as follows:

On the 1st of January last, I resigned the charge of St. John's Church, Long Island City. In February, I became connected with the Protestant Episcopal City Mission So. ciety, at first assisting the Rev. S. H. Hilliard, in St. Barnabas' Chapel. In June lagt the Chapel of Peace, No. 99 First Avenue, was opened under my charge. Sunday School is held there at 2% P. M., and Divine Service at 7% P. M. My official actions, since my resignation of St. John's Church, are contained in the report of the Society.

The Rev. GEORGE W. NICHOLS reports as follows:

In June last I took letters dimissory from the Bishop of Connecticut, and was received into this Diocese, since which time I have been occupied in clerical duty as Assistant Minister of the Church of the Messiah, Brooklyn, N. Y, I now aid the Rector every Sunday in the services, preach occasionally, and officiate frequently on funeral occasions, when requested to do so by the Rector.

The Rev. F. OERTEL reports as follows:

I resigned the Mission of St. Simon's, Staten Island, on the first of May, 1866; unable to perform any duties for one year. I then came in connection with the City Mission Society at the beginning of June, 1867, and have been engaged since then in Mission work among the Germans on the First Avenue. I also took charge of Rev. Dr. K. Schrammn's congregation whilst he was absent during the summer season. After he resumed his duties, I began a German service on Sunday afternoon in St. Barnabas' Chapel, which, by Divine blessing, will be continued. Baptisms, 20; funerals, 2.

I have continued my usual duties as Assistant at St. Bartholomew's Church daring the past year. In connection therewith I have baptized 3 infants, buried 6 persons, and married 1 couple. The Rector's report will include these. I resigned the financial agency of the N. Y. P. E. C. M. Soc. in May last, the resignation taking effect on the 4th day of June.
