ADDRESS TO OUR READERS.

In conclusion, we may once more request our friends to aid us as much as lies in their power in extending the circulation of “The Church.” Some say that the Baptist Denomination ought to furnish a circulation of FiftY THOUSAND for a Penny Magazine; if that calculation be too high it might, we think, if all our brethren in office, ministers, deacons, school superintendents, and others, did their part, reach a much higher circulation than Twenty THOUSAND, while it never quite came up to that number. Will our friends give us their aid during this month? Will they publicly and privately urge on the attention of the people our Denominational Magazines ? The improved state of trade alone is an argum for doing something,- for doing much; but the great argument is the same which induces us to publish a Penny Magazine, “THE GOOD OF THE MANY." And we think we may,

without impropriety, express the hope and belief, that the readers of Penny Magazines will find none more adapted to aid them at once intellectually and devotionally,—to assist their efforts to "walk with God," and to impart to them, albeit with great plainness of speech, the results of real learning, and of independent thought.

“ BRETHREN, PRAY FOR US."
