The following tabular statement will not be void of interest to the reader, nor entirely out of place in a work of this character. Though but a small proportion of the population of the globe bears the christian name, yet about one half are under christian governments, and, in some measure subjected to wholesome laws. The following table will show the correctness of this remark:
Population under Christian governments
387, 788, 000 Population under Mohammedan governments
72, 000, 000 Population under Heathen governments
-277, 212, 000
Total 737, 000, 000
Those under Christian governments are thus divided:
193, 624, 000 Roman Catholic States
134, 164, 000 Russian, or Greek Church
60, 000, 000 Total 387, 788, 000
Almost one hundred and fifty millions belong to the British Empire.
