**Speaking the truth in love."— EPHESIANS IV. 15.
HAVING twice during the past year specially addressed our readers upon the position and the prospects of the Magazine, it will not be necessary now to weary them with a lengthened preface. We are thankful to say that the contents of this volume and its improved typography have elicited numerous expressions of approval from our Subscribers. The papers upon ecclesiactical subjects which we have published during the past year have attracted the attention of many friends in all sections of the Church of Christ. In the prevailing confusion, which extensively affects religious belief in our country, we are glad to think that we have done some service in exposing subtle errors, and in clearly enunciating the imperishable truths of the Gospel. Our programme for the future includes some plans for the still further improvement of this periodical, and with the aid of the able contributors who have recently enriched its pages we do not despair of obtaining for it a largely increased circulation. We heartily thank all who have assisted us, whether by the pen, or by speaking a good word on our behalf, and we earnestly ask a continuance of their kindness.
