THE Committee of the UNITARIAN SOCIETY beg to announce, that on the 1st of January 1846, will appear the first number of a New Series of this periodical, in which some changes will be made in order to render it more acceptable to the Unitarian body at large. The work will be issued in demy 8vo, each number containing 32 pages, thus giving an increase of one third above the present series. The Rev. Dr. MONTGOMERY has consented to make this work the vehicle of publication of a History of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, which he has undertaken at the request of the Remonstrant Synod, giving an outline of the events which led to the secession of the Remonstrant Synod from the General Assembly, and also giving the principal events connected with the passing of the Dissenters' Chapels Bill. The first portion of this history will appear on February, and will be continued from month to month. Arrangements have been made with several talented ministers to contribute articles, from time to time, on such subjects as may possess most striking interest. With the January number will be presented (gratis) a copy of Dr. Montgomery's sermon at the late anniversary of the Unitarian Society.

The publication of the number for December was postponed, that the report of the annual meeting of the Belfast Unitarian Tract Society, held on the 1st December, might be inserted.

The Bible Christian for December is received, also the first number of the New Series.

Back numbers of the former Series can be procured of the publisher; and subscribers are requested to complete their sets as early as convenient.

The Volume for 1845, and previous Volumes, can be had from the publisher.

The Bible Christian will be continued at its usual price, threepence each number; and published in London by JOHN MARDON, No. 7, Farringdon Street.

JANUARY, 1846.




Ir being usual to introduce a fresh publication of this kind to the notice of its readers by an Address from the Editor or Proprietors, we at once comply with this salutary custom, though it might be said, that the title we have adopted is so comprehensive, straightforward, and unmistakeable, as well nigh to relieve us from the task of further explanation. Still, we know very well, and most of our readers will probably agree with us, that a name or term like the one we have chosen-employed as a general designation-may be sufficient to indicate our purpose in the main, and yet may not be quite definite enough to satisfy the various classes of minds specifically differing, though generically agreeing in opinion, without some more detailed exposition of our views and objects than what the title of our humble publication alone would import.

For this reason, and some other collateral ones, we beg to inform our readers that the main object of this periodical will be to advocate and diffuse those religious views, that practical morality, and, if we may thus venture to speak, that sound philosophy, which are entertained and advocated by that class of Christians denominated Unitarian. We do not intend to confine ourselves to theological topics, though, undoubtedly, they will constitute one principal feature of our labours. The claims of Literature and the Arts, of Science and Philosophy, will,
