mankind, is increasing in its means and its efforts. Let it not be our reproach, that the people of the United States, more favored by Providence through the whole course of their history than any other people, should lin. ger, and hesitate, in this great work of benevolence.

We congratulate the Christian public on the general excitement, in reference to the great duty of supplying Christian teachers for the millions of our countrymen, who are now destitute. The number of

The number of persons who feel this excitement, is daily increasing; and

may

it still increase, till every man, who enjoys the ordinances of the Gospel, shall be roused to vigorous action, and shall refuse to intermit his exertions so long as they shall be needed; so long as a single log-house can be found with: out a Bible, or a single neighborhood without a spiritual guide.

When we look over the pages of those religious magazines, which are edited and patronized by some of the best men in Great Britain and in the world; and when we clearly discern, that the objects which lie nearest their hearts, and which they strenuously labor to accomplish, are the same with those to which our columns have been principally devoted, it is a perpetual source of gratification and of encouragement. However comparatively feeble our efforts may have been, it is a pleasure of which we can never be deprived, if our hearts have not deceiv. ed us, that we have spontaneously and sincerely endeavored to promote the best of causes, and have been cordially united in purpose, and in feeling, with many of the most intelligent, the wisest, and the most pious men, on both sides of the Atlantic.

With these remarks we commend the volume, which is now closed, to the candor of the public. While we regret its imperfections, we earnestly desire that it may be succeeded by other volumes more worthy of the times in which we live, and more efficacious in promoting the perinanent welfare of mankind.

Boston, Dec. 2, 1815.
