feveral efforts made in the course of the past

Chriftians of various denominations, to promote mutual affection, and extend the intereft of the Redeemer's kingdom, have by no means difappoint ed the fanguine expectations we formed at its commencement, froni a review we then took of the state of the religious world.

Three new focieties, the Baptift, Congregational, and Itinerant, have been established in London, for diffufing, more extensively, the Gospel of Chrift in the unenlightened parts of our own country; a refpectable addition has been made to the County Affociations, for the fame purpose; and feveral Itinerant Ministers have been employed in this important work, both in England and Scotland, with the happiest prospects of fuccefs.

The Catholic spirit also, displayed in the many inftances we have recorded, merits our warmest encomium; and will, we hope, increase, till all who love our Lord Jefus Chrift in fincerity, are ftill more clofely united; efpecially as this may be accomplished without giving up the grand diftinguishing principles of the gofpel; or interfering, in any respect, with our educational peculiarities. Much of this fpirit of Catholicifm has been justy attributed to the inftitution of Miffionary Societies, which have encreafed and flourished during the last year, both with us and in America; and we are happy in the profpect of the formation of a fimilar fociety in Holland.

We are thankful for the many judicious obfervations we have been alvoured with on " the means of doing good :" the paper which appears in the prefent number, on Sunday Schools, may be confidered as a fpecimen of the useful information we are thereby enabled to lay before our readers, on that, and other fubjects of the fame kind, which will be brought forward in their order.

Though brevity has been frequently recommended to our correspondents, we never found it more neceffary than at prefent, when the great increase of Religions Intelligence demands fo confiderable a portion of our room. A work like ours requires variety, which cannot be maintained but by fhort lively pieces. Thefe are beft calculated to attract the general attention of readers, and confequently, if well written, are most likely to be ufeful. Except, therefore, on Biography, or a few other very interesting subjects, . we wish no article may ever exceed two or three pages.
