REPORT FOR 1862, 



To those who only anticipate beneficent results from 
agencies imposing in their structure and immediate in their 
visible success, the Tract Society will present few attractions. 
But such should remember that the mightiest forces are not 
always open to the eye of sense, and that their grand issues do 
not follow in close and visible sequence. When nature lies 
seemingly dead in the frozen embrace of winter, beneath the 
ice and snow a vital process of singular yet hidden energy is 
actively at work, the existence of which becomes apparent 
when it culminates in the leaf and flower and fruit of spring, 
of summer, and of autumn. There were Reformers long be- 
fore the Reformation, who toiled and suffered, but whose labors 
and sacrifice were evidently preparatory to that glorious era of 
religious liberty and spiritual life. 

It will not, therefore, in view of such facts, be a serious ob- 
jection to the work of this Society should we have to acknow- 
ledge that from the very nature of its mission there is little to 
attract the eye or arrest attention ; but that in quiet and 
unostentatious labor it seeks to " prepare the way of the Lord" 
and spread through its silent pages " the truth as it is in Jesus." 

One of the chief attractions of our Society is that it affords 
a sphere of labor to the disciples of our common Lord of every 
name — a sphere at once catholic in its basis, and to every 
willing laborer peculiarly simple in its method. 

At the close of another year we have nothing very remarka- 
ble to report. A goodly number of volumes, written by devout 
men, presenting divine truth in simple yet earnest phrase, have 
been sold ; many tracts, each containing the way of life, and 



clearly pointing to u the Lamb of God," have been circulated ; 
and several Sabbath Schools, through the liberality of the 
Parent Society, have been furnished with libraries at reduced 
prices ; but as to actual spiritual fruit, we have to fall back on 
the faithfulness of our covenant God, and in humble confidence 
believe that in His own time and in His own way He will 
render His truth effectual, even although to us it may remain 
unknown. 

During the year your Committee has been able to do little 
more than maintain the machinery in working order which 
was received in trust on entering upon office. Indeed, with 
the present limited income, it would not be safe to attempt 
more. Our indebtedness to the Parent Society is greater than 
it ought to be, yet it is a gratification to be able to state that 
the assets far exceed the liabilities, and that the Society is 
consequently in a perfectly sound condition. The Depository 
has been efficiently wrought ; the gratuitous circulation of 
Tracts in the city has been attended to with more or less regu- 
larity by distributors from the several Churches ; and in con- 
nection with the Bible Society a Colporteur has been employed 
for the sale and distribution of religious books and tracts in 
the surrounding Counties. We now call attention to 

I. THE DEPOSITOEY. 

It is still in charge of Mr Edward Stacey, to whom great 
praise is due for efficient and faithful service. He reports : — 
Tracts issued from the Depository — Gratis, 253,675 pages ; 
sold, 48,170 ; hand-bills, 2,115 ; total, 303,960 pages— being an 
increase over last year of 49,739 pages. Books issued from the 
Depository — Bound books, 1,886 ; stiff covers, 1,546 ; books 
for the young, 3,131 ; total, 6,563 ; besides Scriptures with 
Metrical Psalms, 769 ; total, 7,332 — being, however, a decrease 
of 1,773 on the issue of books as compared with last year. 

The present stock in the Depository is remarkably good, 
both as to extent and quality, and may be strongly commended 



to the attention of the public. The Bibles and Testaments 
with Metrical Psalms are especially worthy of notice. 

II. THE TREASURER'S STATEMENT. 

As his Report is printed in full at the close of the Report, 
we have only here to notice that moneys received from all 
sources amount to $1,187 02 ; that, including balance due 
Treasurer on last account of $15 21, the disbursements for the 
year, for all purposes, amount to $960 27 — leaving a balance on 
hand of $226 75. On this balance, however, $120 may be 
called for immediately, as this amount is now due for rent. 

III. TRACT DISTRIBUTION. 

Under this head w r e have to record the direct work of the 
Society, and although with a larger number of faithful laborers 
greater results might have been secured, it is gratifying to be 
able to report that the market, the jail, the Penitentiary, the 
military, the suburbs, and the several wards of the city, have 
been with considerable regularity supplied with Tracts by 
voluntary effort, while the Colporteur has carried the silent 
messengers of truth to the more remote Townships and settle- 
ments. 

About 253,600 pages of tracts have thus been scattered 
through our section of the land. Thirty distributers, mostly 
female, have been engaged in the several city wards in this 
work of faith and labor of love. 

IV. COLPORTAGE. 

As already stated, a Colporteur has been employed during 
the year in visiting the surrounding Counties. His expenses 
have been met partly by our own Society and partly by the 
Bible Society. This union of eifort between institutions so 
accordant in spirit and aim has wrought advantageously to 
both. Colporteur Dunoon has, however, been only ten months 
actually engaged in his work, but during that period, besides 
the distribution of 33,000 Tracts, he has sold 610 religious 



8 

books, and 480 copies of the Scriptures with Metrical Psalms. 
We regard this department of labor as not the least important, 
for besides the circulation of these publications among a class 
to whom they are peculiarly appropriate, and who in many 
instances are without the regular means of grace, the Colpor- 
teur has had through his Tracts and books the opportunity of 
speaking a word in season to many who would not otherwise 
have listened to his testimony. 

V. THE PAKENT SOCIETY. 

The following extract from the annual Keport of the Parent 
Society for 1862 will not, we are persuaded, be uninteresting 
to the supporters of our Auxiliary : — " At the commencement 
of the Society, in 1799, the sphere of its labors was much cir- 
cumscribed by the smallness of its funds and the unsettled and 
warlike state of most of the nations of the earth ; but, through 
the general intercourse with foreign countries, from the long 
continuance of peace, and the increased support which the 
public has given to the Society, its operations have been ex- 
tended to almost every part of the world. Assisted by the 
disinterested labors of many esteemed friends, and the devoted 
missionaries of different Christian denominations, the Society 
has printed important books and tracts in about one hundred 
and sixteen languages and dialects ; its annual circulation from 
the Depository in London and from various foreign Societies is 
above forty-seven millions, and its total distribution to March, 
1862, has been about nine hundred and fifty-nine millions of 
copies of its publications." 

The income from all sources for 1862 amounted to £99,363 
0s. lid. stg., the total expenditure to £97,179 17s. 4d., leaving 
a balance on hand of £2,183 3s. 7d. 

The Kingston Auxiliary, both this and last year, received 
very generous grants of Tracts from the Parent Society, and for 
the use of Sunday Schools a number of Libraries at reduced 
prices. These tokens of affectionate sympathy are all the more 
fitted to excite our gratitude, from the fact that we have not 



only been nnable to remit any free contribution to the general 
funds of the Society, but that our stock account has not always 
been as promptly paid as it should have been. 

IN CONCLUSION 

We desire to acknowledge the goodness of Him whom we seek 
to serve. He has given us peace and concord in our delibera- 
tions, and grace to do what has been accomplished. With a 
larger income, more might have been done ; with stronger 
faith and more importunate prayer, the spiritual results would 
doubtless have been greater ; but our term of stewardship has 
now closed, and our work, such as it is, we commend to His 
grace.
