ADVERTISEMENT.

In nresentinor to the Public the First Volume of the Scottish Christian Herald, the Conductors cannot refrain from stating the high satisfaction which they feel in contemplating the success with which their labours have, thus far, been crowned. The Periodical was originally projected with the avowed design of " Illustrating and enforcing the doctrines of

the Bible, the great essential principles of Evangelical Grace and Truth;" and how far this

desiffn has been fulfilled may be readily seen by a reference to its pages. The most strenuous

efforts have been exerted to combine solid Scriptural instruction with interesting and varied

information, and it roust certainly afford sincere pleasure to every well constituted mind, that

a periodical exclusively devoted to topics connected with the spiritual and eternal concerns of

mankind, should be so widely diffused, in the course of a few months, as to cover the length

and breadth of the land, and be welcomed weekly, with ever increasing interest, by all classes

of the community- Such a result is in the highest degree encouraging, and calls for the

liveliest cratitude to Almighty God, the promotion of whose cause,—the wisest, the noblest,

and the best the Scottish Christian Herald is humbly destined to subserve.

In the present Volume are contained Original Articles by upwards of One Hundred Authors, clerical and lay. In point of literary merit, the contributions speak for themselves; and it is impossible, we conceive, to find, within the same limited space, in any other publication whatever so great a quantity of varied and valuable information, bearing the authority of the names of the Authors.

That a Publication of this nature is calculated, under the Divine blessing, to produce the mo*t salutarv effects can scarcely, for a moment, be doubted, communicating, as it does, a varied combination of truths, both useful and entertaining, and that too, compressed within such narrow limits as to be readily perused by multitudes who have neither leisure nor opportunity to avail themselves of works of larger dimensions. And, accordingly, it appears r 'the accounts received from all parts of the country, that even in districts the most rend hitherto excluded from the range of periodical literature, whether secular or l'' <= the Scottish Christian Herald has been uniformly received as a boon, and \e«\ *n numerous instances, to the most gratifying change in the character and conA f individuals merely, but of whole families. There is reason to hope, indeed, that

K» klv distribution of Forty Thousand Copies of a Publication so completely adapted

, . ".z—~ nprusal, both on Sabbath and week-days, will ultimately be productive of in

fer instructive pe>"" •"'.. «..<-, ,

T 1 Kl o-oodto the country at large. In these encouraging circumstances, the Conductors

Lo~» *Vi mselves to proceed with redoubled alacrity and vigour in the Christian cause in

- have embarked, trusting in the strength of Him to whom they are desirous that

1 "r-v of their success should be ascribed.
