And yet we submit, that OF PEACE, which we hope will overleap the limited circle this has been hitherto the case to a large extent. The within which Peace literature has for the most part been ludicrously crude nature of the objections usually started confined, and find its way extensively to the homes and in conversation, by even sensible persons, on this subject, hearts of a large class of intelligent and benevolent men, is proof enough how little it has been seriously examined. who have hitherto been scarcely touched with anything like All that we ask of those friends, among whom are many living and active sympathy for our cause.

We ask of those of our readers to whom the subject of Peace is them only, not to put aside with an impatient gesture of comparatively new.

Its sound is gone forth through they summarily dismiss its claims, they will respectfully all the earth, and its words to the end of the world. And listen to what may be said on its behalf? “We speak as yet how many are there still, to whom it is nothing more unto wise men, judge ye what we say.” than a sound-vague, confused, inarticulate! They are aware, indeed, of great stir and activity on the part of a considerable class, not usually regarded as either the least

But they hardly know what to think of their object; UNDER this general title, we propose to give from time to whether to deride it altogether as an absurd fantasy of time extracts from eminent writers, ancient and modern, Pagan dreaming and impracticable enthusiasts, or to hail it as the and Christian, in prose and in verse, illustrating the wickeddawning of a more auspicious era in the destinies of hu ness, folly, and misery of war, and the beauty and blessedmanity.
