PREFACE.

The Preface to a new book-the production of a single author--may be necessary to explain why the work was written, and what are the purposes it is intended to subserve. But the annual Preface to an old Magazine, which has had numerous contributors, is in danger of sinking into a literary formality, or of swelling into a mere editorial puff.

In our case authorship and editorship have been closely intermingled ; and while modesty forbids the mention of our own contributions by name, gratitude demands that we cordially thank the writers who have helped us by their more substantial papers, and the correspondents who have furnished us with our monthly information. Nor would we forget our obligation to the agents who have exerted themselves to sell a publication so low in price, and affording them so little pecuniary profit. In respect to remuneration, all parties, editors, publishers, and salesmen, are nearly on an equality. Great gain, in the shape of money, is not possible to any of them. The public good of the Denomination must be our united aim. The subscribers have certainly as much for the price as is supplied by the average of denominational magazines; and while the quantity is ample, we will not be so untrue to ourselves as to admit that, in regard to its quality, they have just grounds of complaint. Still, if encouraged in our labours, we hope to provide something better in the future.
