The requirements of family reading will be carefully studied, and in order to meet them we propose to devote two or three pages monthly to the young. In providing for Christian families we shall be aided by the ladies to whom we are indebted for the papers on “ The Wife of Philip Melancthon," and on “Lord Haddo," and by the accomplished author of the recently-published 6 Sermons from the Studio." Readers, whose tastes or whose incessant occupations prevent their perusal of longer articles, will find provision made for them in two or three pages of “Golden Words for Busy People,” carefully selected from authors, old and new.

By an arrangement with the Committees of the Home Missionary Society, the Colonial Missionary Society, and the Irish Evangelical Society, it is intended that each number shall contain a chronicle of four pages to report in succession the operations of these institutions; and it is hoped, that this arrangement will at once benefit our British Missions, and add to the value and interest of the “ CHRISTIAN WITNESS."

Thus using our best endeavours to make our “ Threepenny" Monthly a means of increased spiritual good to our Churches, we solicit the co-operation of all our readers to promote our circulation. By their personal influence that circulation might speedily be doubled; and, in this age of intense competition, nothing but personal influence can secure a fair hearing to a Denominational Magazine. The Lord give our readers and ourselves grace to be faithful to His Truth and Kingdom in the world!
