From a recent circular, containing an account of the present state of the Missions of the United Brethreu among Heathen Nations, we copy the following appeal to Christian liberality.
"To all who are interested in the cause of Christianity, and the progress of the Gospel, the following statement is offered by individuals wholly uncommected with the United Brethren; and excited to plead for them simply by the excellence of their character, the greatness of their cause, the rigid economy with which their plans are executed, and the remarkable success that has attended their labours.

"For nearly a hundred years past, and during a period in which the Christian world may be said to have been dead to the interests of humanity at large, the Brethern have continued to send forth faithful, humble, diligent, labourers-- men not contented to offer a sacrifice that costs them nothing, but quitting all that they hold dear in the present world, all the comforts of a civilized home, having given up their lives to the service to their Redeemer: cheerfully exposing themselves to the baneful climate of the West Indies, or enduring, year after year, the rigours of an Arctic Winter on the coasts of Greenland and Labrador, without the accommodations, and barely provided with the necessaries of life. They have persevered in the work set before them, neither yielding to difficulties nor deterred by dangers and distresses, nor baffled by ingratitude and opposition.

"But it is not only on the excellence and the spirit of the Bretheren's missions that we rest their cause, but also on the remarkable success which has attended their efforts. It is to facts that we appeal; to the well attested accounts of the most disinterested witnesses; and by these it is proved , that the Brethren's missionaries have discovered the right method of dealing with the wretched and the ignorant. In various parts of the world have they assembled around them colonies, gathered from the miseries of heathenism; and brought, not only to a state of comfort, civilization, and industry, but to the knowledge and practice of the Gospel of Christ. The experience of a century has sufficiently proved that the directing principal of the mission of the United Brethern is the principle of practical wisdom; that the spirit which animates them is the spirit of the Gospel; and the success attending their exertions shows that the favor and blessing of the Almighty has rested upon their labours.

"In thirty-three Missionary stations, in Greenland, Labrador, North America, the West Indies, Surinam, South Africa, and Tartary, there are about 32,999 Christian Converts, under the care of one hundred and sixty eight missionaries, whose attention, however, is not exclusively confined to them; for they preach the Gospel also to many thousands of heathens, in their respective vicinities.

"The direct expenses of all these missions amounted, in 1820, to 6677l. 9s. 9 pence: [$2964804] a sum incredibly small, in proportion to the magnitude and extent of the good effected. But there were arrears and contingencies to be added, partly for the maintenance of aged missionaries, worn out in the service, or of the widows of the deceased missionaries, or for the education of their children : these arrears, when added to the preceding sum, produced a total of 94311l. 17s. 11 d. : [$41977 61.]

"The smallness of this expenditure is to be accounted for, not merely by the rigid economy , and self denying habits of the missionaries, but also by the gratifying fact, that in some of the stations, trades or manufactures carried on under their superintendence, have been so productive, as nearly to cover the whole of their respective expenses. In the Danish West India Islands, containing 12,000 Negro converts, the missionaries have exerted themselves so effectively as even to remit 750l. [$3330], during the year 1820, towards the maintenance of other missions.

"The congregations of the Brethren on the continent and elsewhere, amount not on an average, to more than 8000 persons, and these belong chiefly to the humbler classes of society; so that their means of contributing to the expenses of the missions are very small; but they were able, in a great measure, to meet it, until the difficulties and devastations attendant on the late war had so much impoverished the continental congregations, as to throw the burden almost exclusively on those of Great Britain. With every effort, however, on their part, they were not able to raise above 2000l. ($8880) per annum; less than a fourth part of the whole annual expenditure-- The Society labours, in consequence, under heavy pecuniary embarrassments and must long since have relinquished the missionary stations, and yielded up these Christian enclosures a prey to the powers of darkness, but for the spontaneous bounty of benevolent friends, chiefly in England and Scotland; by whose aid and exertions upwards of 4000l. ($17760) have been collected in aid of the missionary fund. Still an annual sum of 2000l. ($8880) remains to be provided for; to which are to be added, unliquidated deficiencies of former years; and during the present year this deficiency has been greatly augmented, owing to the dreadful devastations produced by hurricanes on two of the South African stations."

Since sending the above to press, we have received an account of another recent visitation which has befallen one of the Moravian settlements; the settlement of Sarepta, in Russian Asia, near Czarizin, on the Wolga. Sarepta was first established in the year 1765 by five of the Moravian brethren from Heruhutt in the hope that it might be the means of bringing the Calmucks and other tribes in the vicinity, to the knowledge of christian truth. The population has by degrees increased to nearly 500 inhabitants and a small number of converts (Calmucks) have of late years, been gathered from among the heathen. The calamity to which we allude, and which forms a new claim to christian sympathy, is thus described by the conductors of the Brethren's missions:--

"It has pleased the Lord our God, whose ways are often inscrutable, but always righteous and full of love, to visit our congregation at Sarepta in Russia, with a very heavy disaster. On the 9th of August last, a fire broke out in one of the out houses of the tobacco manufactory, and as all the premises were built of wood, and by the long continued drought and heat had become like tinder, the flames spread with such rapidity that all human help proved vain; and in four hours and a half the shops, with all the buildings belonging to the manufactory, the apothecary's shop, the large distillery, the warden's house, the two large houses of the single brethren, with all their shops and farming premises, and 24 dwelling places (comprising three-fourths of the whole settlement) were laid in ashes. Thus 28 families, all the single brethren, seventy in number, and about twenty families of workmen and servants were bereft of their habitations. When the fire had reached the most dangerous place, between the single brethrens house and the closely adjoining out-buildings of the minister's house it pleased God to grant success to the unwearied exertions of those who came to our assistance, and to put a stop to the progress of the devouring element, otherwise, in half an hour more the whole settlement of Sarepta would have been converted into a melancholy heap of ruins, and all its inhabitants left without a home"

Two lives were lost in consequence of fatigue and agitation of mind. All who have retained their houses, have most cheerfully accommodated the sufferers in the best manner in their power. The church was saved and has been re-opened.

The loss sustained, by a still later account than the above from the Christian Observer, is estimated at more than $170,000.

Contributions for the relief of the suffering inhabitants of Sarepta, will be very thankfully received in New York, by the Rev Benjamin Mortimer No. 104 Fulton street; Mr. Jacob Bininger, No 12 Maiden lane; Mr. David Jacot, No. 328 Greenwich street, corner of Harrison, and Mr. Abraham Cargill, No. 232 Water street.
