" Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things

Printed at the Caxton Press, by Henry Fisher.
OGLE, DUNCAN, AND CO., AND SHERWOOD AND CO., PATERNOS-
The Editors commit the seventh volume of their work to the public, with many thanks for their continued encouragement. The increased occupation of their time in other, and unavoidable engagements, compels them, however, to make an alteration in their plan, which, whilst it will materially relieve them, (the final editor especially,) will prove, they hope, not unacceptable to the majority of their readers. Considering the variety of channels for communicating religious, philanthropic, and literary intelligence, in the present day, they have determined to omit, as the least essential part of their work, the miscellaneous matter which has hitherto followed the poetry and American intelligence, supplying the place of their quarterly list of deaths, with short obituaries of eminent characters, and an annual necrological retrospect; and giving occasional summaries instead of stated notices of missionary and philanthropic intelligence. With these omissions, they purpose to commence a New Series of their Work at half its present price, so as to form one volume instead of two in the year; and they earnestly but respectfully entreat for it, in its new form, a continuance of the support it has hitherto enjoyed, whilst they venture to express a hope, that it will also speedily obtain even an increased circulation.
