PREFACE.

THROUGH the kind Providence of God, we are permitted to present another volume of this periodical to our readers. The present has been an unfavourable year for religious periodical literature in general. The unhappy war in which our country is engaged with a mighty despotic empire, and the important and affecting intelligence from the scenes of conflict, have naturally awakened general excitement, and led to a more extended circulation of newspapers, to the detriment of religious magazines. The dearness of provisions, and other inconveniences resulting from the war, have also militated considerably against the circulation of the latter periodicals. Under these circumstances, we are grateful to the Giver of all good, and to our numerous subscribers, for the extensive patronage still afforded to our Connexional organ. A circulation of nearly 11,000 copies monthly during a year of such financial pressure, demands our grateful acknowledgments.

And while we tender our thanks to our numerous friends for their liberal support hitherto, we would respectfully solicit the continuance of their favour, and the recommendation of our periodical to those who may be likely to become subscribers. The changes which are continually taking place in society by deaths, removals, and various other causes, necessarily occasion the loss of many subscribers to every regular periodical ; and without a considerable number of new ones, the circulation must be gradually diminished. We scarcely need say that we earnestly deprecate such an occurrence in reference to our Connexional Magazine. And we hope better things, despite of the discouragements which the circumstances of the times present. Our friends have hitherto afforded us cheerful and extensive support, and we have not much reason to fear that any thing short of necessity will cause them to discontinue a work of which they heartily approve. Encouraged by their continued patronage and support, it shall be our constant effort to render the periodical worthy of their countenance, and calculated to promote their instruction and spiritual profit.

We again tender our thanks to the numerous friends who have contributed to our pages, and respectfully solicit the continuance of their assistance. Whatever their office or standing in the Connexion, acceptable communications will be gratefully received from them, and will be inserted as far as our space and other circumstances will permit.

We are above all desirous to be favoured with gratifying intelligence of the prosperity of the work of God. A record of the onward movements of the

Connexion, and of the conversion of multitudes of sinners, will deeply interest our readers, and greatly tend to promote revivals throughout our Zion. Oh, for showers of spiritual blessings! Oh, for the conversion of multitudes in every district! Why should it not be the case? Is the Spirit of the Lord straitened? Has His arm lost its power to save? Let us believe in Him as in time past, and surely his arm shall be made bare as in former days.

ness.

While war rages abroad, and the rumours of war fill our land, be it the earnest and united determination of our friends everywhere to push forward the work of God, and thus carry on aggressive war against the empire of darkOur mission is to save souls, and extend the peaceful kingdom of Emmanuel. May we be faithful to our momentous calling, and the Author of all good will vouchsafe his abundant blessings on our labours, and our pages shall be enriched with heart-cheering intelligence of revivals of his blessed work. Amen.

EDITOR.
