Chapman, and a Constant Reader The announcement of the death of the Rev. John Toms, of Chard, which took place on the 21st of July, came too late for insertion in our present Number; but the particulars will be given in our next.
The public meetings of Tuesday last being too late for the columns of this Number, we insert a brief account of them in this place:
Tuesday morning, July 28, the Rev. Messrs. Cantelow, Nichols, and Clarke, were publicly designated as Missionaries to Jamaica. The service was held in Eagle-street Chapel. The Rev. I. Mann read the Scriptures and prayed; Rev. J. Dyer stated the object of the meeting, and received the highly interesting accounts which the Missionaries gave of their conversion, &c.; Rev. W. Gray, of Northampton, prayed the ordination prayer; Rev. I. Birt, of Hackney, delivered an impressive address, founded on Matt. xxviii. latter part of 20th verse; and Rev. E. Lewis, of Highgate, concluded in prayer. The hymns were read by Rev. Messrs. Ivimey, Steane, Groser, and Edwards.
On the evening of the same day, a meeting was held at Carter-lane, Tooleystreet. The Rev. J. Dyer intimated, that the design of the meeting was thankfully to acknowledge the divine goodness, in relation to events both foreign and domestic; especially the kind appearance in removing the pecuniary incumbrance of the Society, the success attending missionary operations in the West Indies, and the pleasing occasion of the morning meeting. After prayer he also introduced some interesting extracts from a communication of the Rev. Mr. Burchell from the West Indies. He was succeeded by the Rev. Dr. Newman, Rev. Messrs. Ivimey and Griffin, who read and prayed; and this devotional and gra tifying service was concluded by the Rev. Dr. Rippon.
July 28.-Mr. Dyer begs to say, in answer to inquiries by this morning's post, respecting a person travelling the country under the character of a Hindoo, that he (Mr. D.) is not aware that the individual referred to has any special claims on the benevolence of the Christian public.

By the Rev. W. ELLIS.
"No one, we are persuaded, ever heard the details given by Mr. Ellis at Missionary Meetings, without the conviction of his possessing special claims to the regard and confidence of the Christian world. The simplicity and chasteness of his communications, the evident indications of honest feeling and unaffected integrity-and the interesting information respecting the manners, and customs, and natural history of the Sandwich Islands, which characterize his addresses at public meetings, might be expected to pervade the more copions intelligence contained in this volume; and we can assure our readers, that they will not be disappointed."-Congregational Magazine.
"The reader who has any curiosity to be made acquainted with the actual state of this interesting portion of the Globe, must have recourse to Mr. Ellis's Volume. It will introduce him to a more accurate knowledge of the state of its population, than he can any where else acquire. It is written in a very pleasing and perspicuous style, the embellishments are respectably executed, and the publishers have certainly done their duty in regard to paper and print."-New Baptist Magazine.
"Mr. Ellis's philological remarks are remarkably distinct, and display a great acquaintance with the language."-Spirit and Manners of the Age.
"This Volume is very rich in information respecting the topography, natural phenomena, productions, people, customs, superstitions, traditions, modern history, religion, and language of Hawaii."-Home Missionary Magazine.
"This interesting Traveller has communicated considerable interest to our minds, while attending him and his companions on their route; we look around, through the medium of his representations, on new and strange scenes, and find our attention perpetually kept alive by objects of curiosity and wonder, and by new and diversified, but not extravagant, appearances of human character."Bristol Gazette.
"From the knowledge we possessed of the talents, acquirements, industry, and missionary accomplishments of Mr. Ellis, we were fully prepared for receiving from his pen an interesting narrative of the scenes which, in common with his American companions, he had witnessed amidst the far distant islands of the Pacific. But high as were the expectations to which personal intercourse had given birth, we are ready to acknowledge, that the work before us has far surpassed them; and recommend our readers to lose no time in obtaining one of the ablest works ever produced by a Christian Missionary."-Evangelical Magazine.

We are requested to insert the following communication :-
"We, the undersigned Dissenting Ministers of the Independent, Wesleyan, and Baptist Denominations, of the town of St. Helier in the island of Jersey, anxious to preserve the religious public from imposition, in the case of any person collecting for a chapel, or any other religious object, take the liberty to request that no person be encouraged without the recommendation of one or more of the resident ministers. This notice is deemed the more necessary, as owing to the peculiar mode of conveying real property in the island, none but those perfectly acquainted with local usages can testify as to the security, investment in trust, and just and perpetual appropriation of buildings erected by public subscription.
