...Rev S.W. Tracy...Corresponding Secretary to the Missionary Society...London...(No.4, Bartlett's Buildings, Holborn)

Ireland

In announcing the return of Mr. Tracy. we are happy in being enabled to inform our readers, that, in addition to the formation of Auxiliary Societies in the northern counties of Tyrone, Armagh, Down, and Autrim, which we have already announced, Mr. Tracy succeeded in establishing an Auxiliary Missionary Society in the south, for the county of Cork: the Committee of which comprizes some of the most respectable characters in the city, and other parts of the county; among whom are John Anderson, Esq. of Fermoy, 'and W. Roberts, Esq. of Charleville, Bankers; by either of whom subscriptions are received, as well as by the Treasurer, James M‘Mullen, Esq. of Cork.

Mr. Tracy, on his return, begs to express the grateful sense which he entertains ot' the kindness which he experienced in all parts of Ireland from the Clergy and Christians of every church, which has laid him and the Missionary Society under lasting obligations—A hope is indulged, that the union which has at length been formed, under circumstances so auspicious, between the churches in 'England, Scotland, and Ireland, for the propagation of our common faith among the hundreds of millions of the heathen world, will be productive of no inconsiderable benefit to the united empire, as well as the world at large.
