Missionaries to Sailors.

--The Seamen's Friend Society have now afloat more than 150 sailor missionaries, who are preaching to their associates at sea. These men are each furnished with a small library of religious books, which they are instructed to lend out among the crew of the ship to which they belong. These libraries are distributed on board men-of-war, merchant ships and whalemen. About one-third of them have been heard from, and the facts which have come to light in connection with this kind of effort for the spiritual good of seamen, are very encouraging.
