not necessarily given to every sentiment contained in that useful and entertaining department of the work.

He further proposes, without much enlarging the part devoted to Missionary Intelligence, to give more frequent sketches of the operations of other and larger societies than our own. His habitual correspondence with the missionaries, and his personal friendship with every one of them, give him facilities as to the obtaining from them, not their journals which belong to the Society, but sketches of their toils, travels, the scenes they witness, their reverses and successes, &c., which are most pleasing to the general reader.

These additions and alterations will render it necessary to husband well the space devoted to news from the churches. He hopes this will be increased rather than otherwise. He therefore requests from all our Churches notices of all Baptisms, Opening or Enlargement of Chapels, brief and characteristic Obituaries of excellent deceased Christians, and notices of every occurrence which has a public character, or is of general interest ; but as to the first of these, the number of those added, and the date, and the preacher will be sufficient, except there be circumstances of special interest deserving of mention.

It would be a good arrangement if the minister, or the secretary, or some friend in every church were requested by his friends to attend to these communications. They would then arrive in due course, and not, as now, sometimes by duplicates, and sometimes not at all.

These suggestions, if received in the spirit in which they are given, will tend to the improvement of the work, both as to its claims on the general reader, and its value as a Denominational Organ, and very greatly encourage the Editor in the conducting of this periodical.

He now commends the work and his labours to the kindness of the churches, and commits them all to the blessing of God.

A valued friend writes : “To yourself, your situation may be attended with hazard; I therefore regard you as claiming our warmest support and consideration.” Many others have freely congratulated us on improvements already manifest, and on the promise of the future.

As a printer and publisher has been obtained who will devote considerable energy and attention to the getting-up and circulation of the Magazine, we may hope that, with the help of our friends, our enterprise will not be a failure.
