conceive, perfectly coincident with that of our Church ; it would have been found in a work, proceeding from high authority, which has recently issued from the press. The friends of evangelical theology, no less than those of the oppressed African race, have occasion to regret the loss of the distinguished talents of the late Bishop of St. Asaph : but he has left behind him a memorial of his theological opinions * which will not carry with it the less weight, when the circumstances are considered under which it has met the public eye. The CONDUCTORS of the CHRISTIAN Oeserver will embrace another opportunity of making their readers fully acquainted with this seasonable production. In the mean time they will observe, that could they have emulated the eloquence of this learned and lamented prelate, they would gladly have chosen the same language in which to have enounced the same sentiments. With him they woull say to their fellow Christians in general, but especially to the clergy of the land; “ Leave these barren disquisitions. Apply yourselves, with the whole strength and power of your minds, to do the work of Evangelists. Proclaim to those who are at enmity with God, and children of his wrath, the glad tidings of Christ's pacification. Sound the alarm, to awaken to a life of righteousness, a world lost and dead in trespasses and sins. Lift aloft the blazing torch of Revelation, to scatter its rays over them that sit in darkness and the shadow of death : and guide the footsteps of the benighted wanderer into the paths of life and peace.”

p. 29.

The CONDUCTORS of the Christian OBSERVER have intimated, on many former occasions, that it was their great aiin to recommend to their readers a plain and practical religion ; and that they should feel themselves greatly indebted to such correspondents as should aid them in their design. They likewise suggested, that this important end might be much promoted, by the occasional introduction of that ligher spe

cies of writing, which amuses while it instructs, and which may therefore serve to conciliate the attention of the intelligent youth of both sexes to the concerns of religion; an object which is certainly of immense moment, and yet often of extreme difficulty. They have reason indeed to be grateful for the many valuable contributions which they have received to both these departments of their miscellany. They hope however to be excused, if they venture to call on their correspondents for continued support, in a cause which, they do not hesitate to say, is worthy of their best exertions.

At the close of the Number for December (p. 798) the CONDUCTORS of the CHRISTIAN OBSERVER have stated the ground on which they have thought themselves entitled to increase the price of their publication. What they have there said, they doubt not, will prove satisfactory to every considerate mind; and to that they refer their readers. They have now only to renew their acknowledgments to their correspondents for the able assistance afforded by them, and to the public for its liberal patronage; and again to express their anxious desire, that the efforts which they employ to · advance the interests of the Redeemer's kingdom, may obtain his approbation and blessing, and may tend to his glory.
