OUR READERS. EAR Friends :-We begin our new series by wishing you,—not as

the world is in the habit of wishing, -in the truest and holiest signification, a happy new year. May you experience in your hearts and souls the felicity of God's chosen ones ; may you realise more than ever that bliss which true believers in the blessed Jesus feel, though they may not always be able to describe, namely, “joy and peace in believing.” May a double measure of the Spirit of grace and supplication be poured out upon your precious souls. So that you may look more steadily, more fixedly upon our dear Redeemer, the LORD of Hosts,—who, as about this time, came to visit us in great humilityand reap the fruition of that perfect salvation which He has obtained for all those who have been taught to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, to “ live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world ; looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem as from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works."

Dear readers, let there be reciprocity of intercessory supplication between us. Do you also pray that utterance may be granted unto us, that we may be enabled to write and to open our mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the Gospel. We feel assured that we owe much of the success, in a spiritual point of view, which crowned our labours last year, to the intercessory supplications, in our behalf, on the parts of many of our dear readers. Often and often, when on the verge of despondency, were we refreshed, strengthened, and encouraged by the glad tidings that prayers and intercessions were made for us in various quarters.

* Titus ii, 12, 13, 14.


It is no small cause of congratulation to us to be permitted to record that, with two or three exceptions, the approval of our numerous readers has been almost unanimous in favour of our editorial performance. Such approval—in an otherwise very trying undertaking—is of no ordinary value to us; for by far the great majority of our readers are no ordinary individuals, but persons of genuine piety, sound faith, cultivated minds, and extensive literary and critical acquirements.

The exceptions, however, may feel aggrieved if we do not state their grievances. We shall therefore state them forthwith, notwithstanding that the aggrieved consist of a very small minority. The objection of advanced by that minority against our editorial discretion consists two charges :-1. Our admitting a translation of Ein Tag in Capernaum into our monthly; 2. Giving room to the espousers of “Our Israelitish Origin” theory. On these objections we will let the demurrers speak for themselves. The first is from the pen of a minister of some denominational Christian community. The age of the writer we have no means of knowing ; but from the tone and tenor of the man and his communication we are led to infer that he must be young somehow, and inexperienced somewhere ; else he would not have indulged in a threat, or in the nondescript expletive at the end of his communication. Had the writer been either old enough or of mature experience, he might have known that threats can only intimidate the weak, the poltroon, or the guilty. However, here is the communication itself; the threat we shall print in small capitals. The name we omit; we dislike to expose any man to personal ridicule.

Ealing, W., Dec. 3, 1872. "DEAR SIR,—I grieve much over the article Ein Tag in Capernaum. It is quite one to please those who would lower Christ, and it helps the frightful current that is making much of Mary.

“That article has shaken my faith in your paper very much indeed, and I MUST MENTION IT TO OTHERS, " Oh, that you had wisdom to weigh what ought never to appear !

“Yours most sincerely,

The very idea! Professor Delitzsch-the author of Ein Tag in Capernaum—the most Protestant evangelical exegete in Europe—to be accused of an attempt to lower Christ and to make much of Mary! We could not help thinking, when we perused the startling epistle, of a conversation, at which we were present, between the late Archbishop of Dublin and one of his so and so informed clergy. The latter began :“My Lord, I have lately read a work entitled The Kingdom of Christ. I am at a loss to know what the author is driving at. Some parts are utterly unintelligible to me, and others seem heterodox to me.” The Archbishop, with a look half serious, half humorous : -"Indeed! What is the name of the author ?" Critical Cleric, somewhat confused :"I
