-The Emancipator says, in reference to the Mendi miesion : "Surely, never has there been so favorable an opening for introducing ihe gospel into Africa. It comes under auspices wholly uncontaminated with slavery. The native discernment and integrity of the African, must reject, as soon as he understands a gospel, which those who send it forth regard as countenancing the practice of slavery. How can a body of men evangelize Africa, who are so regardless of Africa's greatest crime and curse that they will not even take the trouble to consider or say whether slavery is right or wrong ; a society made up in part of the buyers, sellers and holders of slaves, sending slaveholders as missionaries, and drawing their support in part from the unpaid toil of the slave."
