AFRICA. Letters have been received from Mr. Anderson, dated Cape Town, October 24 and November 27, 1809. From the former it appears, that he had received great encouragement from the government al the Cape, for the protection and support of his Missionary Station at the Great River ; and that he was then on the point of returning to it. By the last Letter of November, the Directors are formed, Thal on his journey he was seized with a fever, which so much reduced him, that he was unable to proceed; and has been obliged to return to the Cape until his bealth is re-established.

Extract of a Lelter fron Mr. Pritcheti, dated Cape Town, Nov. 27.

We have much reason to rejoice on account of the success which has attended the preaching to the soldiers, &c. Sometimes the congregation cobsisted of about 150. This, and the change which has laken place in soms jodividuals, calls for the liveliest expressions of gratitude. The respect.. which these men bave obtained from their superiors is worthy to be no. ticed; and shews how the effect of divine grace, in the conduct of be. lievers, approves itself to the consciences even of the unconverted. Indeed, the conduci of the officers lowards them is altered very much for the better.
