Fellow Christians By our Constitution
it becomes my duty to make a report o
our School to this meeting. In doing so,
I beg your attention for a few moments.
At the commencement of the year which in
a few moro hours will be ended, we had
00 Scholars enrolled on our Books, which
wo have now raised to tho number of one
hundred and eleven. We had 52 Sessions
of the School, boing one Session each Sab
bath. The largest, number of Scholars at
any one Session was 94 and the lowes
number was 38, averaging through the year,
05 Scholars. We had at tho commence
msntof the year 10 leachers and now we
number 14, We have added to our Libra
ry about 70 volumes of book, besides
great many small books which we did not
number. Our Library contains about 470
books. Wo had through tho year many
jnou Sessions of the Sccool. At sometimes
wo had somcjdifiicully for want of Teach
ers, during Iho said year I promoted two

to Teachers and can say that 1 have no roa
on to regret it, as those two Teachers thus
Ux havoidone exccedinly well. 1 can not
too much praise the conduct of many of
the leaphers, and feel under many obliga
tions to ,the other officers of the School, fur
their aid and asjistancp.and in particular to
the kind, and obliging assistanco I have at
all limes had when required of my assis
lant, Joel C. Bradly. Tho School, by the
usislanco of my fellow laborers, is at pres
ent in a most excellent and flourishing con
ditior; for all this we claim no praise, but
owo it all to the praiso and glory of our
Heavenly Father the giver of all good, for
without hfs aid and assistance, wo of our
selves could do nothing, We, have had
three Pastoral visits to our School dur
ing tlm year by our worthy friend the Rev
Mr. Eyjrj-which visits we do 'believe had
ery good effect, and I hope will in future

Slavery in Connecticut There are
8111 free colored persons in Connecticut,
according to the late census, and 51 claimed
as slaves. In 1330 there were 8004 free
blacks and 25 slaves. -The increase of free
colored persons in the last ton years, if this
statement bo correct is 47; or a little more
than i of'ono percent. There are "cry few
States in the Union where tho slave popu
lation has increased in so rapid a ratio. We

Condition of Grecce.T.ale Loudon pa-
pers contain letters from Greece of the most
disc-iuraging character as to the condition
of that country. It is said that Greek cili
zens are imprisoned on the most "frivolous
charges, that terrible cruelliosaro practised;
and the Slave Tjrade is carried on with the
tacit consent of King Oiho, who appears to
take very little interest in the general pros
perity of his people.
