to continue it at its present price. The efficient services of the Rev. Jabez Burns, D.D., were engaged, to take part in the editorship, and thus to add at once to the value and interest of the work.

This alteration will necessarily involve a serious increase in the original expenses of our periodical, which can only be discharged by a very enlarged circulation. It is a bold experiment on the zeal and public spirit of the General Baptist churches. It will render the General Baptist Repository' one of the cheapest publications of the present day; and if our friends in the various churches come to the assistance of the Editors, by promoting at once its improvement and its circulation, by the early transmission of intelligence and of well digested communications, and by a liberal use of its advertising medium, the success of the experiment will be honourable to our body, and increasingly useful to its various members.

We do most sincerely hope that this view of the present state of our only denominational periodical will be so impressed on our most zealous members and people, that in good earnest they will afford their aid for the promotion of the interests of our magazine, and in every possible way encourage its conductors and extend its sale.

May we solicit the minister in every church to be our correspondent and contributor ; every brother who has been in the habit of transmitting intelligence to us, to continue his useful and valued assistance; and every one of our agents to use his utmost efforts for the advancement of our purpose ? Let us all simulta. neously exert our powers, and our united energies will be crowned with distinguished success.

During our visit to the Free-Will Baptist Conference, the propriety and desirableness of a closer union between our transatlantic brethren and ourselves, to be effected through the medium of the Repository,' was mentioned, and it is pleasing to add that several of the friends there have engaged to become subscribers to our publication, and that some of them promised to favour the Editors with occasional communications.

The Editor once more returns his acknowledgements to his friends and brethren for the assistance and support given to him during his sole management of this periodical ; and hopes that in its new and enlarged form he and his respected colleague may enjoy their countenance and favour, and that the blessing of God may rest on them, on this periodical, on our whole denomination, and on the church at large. Leicester, Nov, 23rd, 1847.
