THE design of the Panoplist, the circumstances which occasioned it, and the principles on which it was to be conducted, were made known to the public in the general preface, prefixed to the first number. This work has now had the test of one year's experience. The approbation and patronage it has received are highly gratifying to the Editors, and encourage them to proceed with increased ardour in their laborious and responsible undertaking.

Considering the formidable obstacles which this work had to overcome, its success has surprised its most sanguine friends, and excites their lively gratitude to the Author of all good.

The important design of the Panoplist, in maintaining and disseminating evangelical truth, cannot be fully accomplished without persevering exertions in the Editors, and corresponding patronage from the public. The Editors, from the experience they have acquired, from the increased number and the respectability of writers, and the correspondences they have established both in Europe and America, which enable them to give the earliest accounts of the state of religion throughout the world, can, with a good degree of confidence, in humble dependence on God, pledge themselves to continue the work, at least, as valuable and interesting, as it has been the past year. On this ground they hope for the continued and active support of all who are concerned to maintain die truth, and diffuse Christian piety and morality.

With these views and hopes, the Editors "commit themselves and their work to Him with whom is the residue of the Spirit, praying that he may lead them into all truth, prevent them from injuring religion by their manner of defending it, and crown their endeavours with that blessing, without which, the most splendid exertions must be ineffectual; but with which, the feeblest services may be productive of the most important effects."
