EDITORIAL POSTSCRIPT. Once more, at the close of another year, we desire to offer to our friends and helpers our profound acknowledgments for the kindness with which our labours continue to be received. It is not given to many to toil, as we have done, for more than five-and-twenty years, in the same field of effort, and to find their success rather growing than diminishing. For that it is so in our case, we owe, first of all, an acknowledgment to the Giver of all good, next to those by whom, under Him, our hands have been held up, and our efforts succeeded. Not so much to ourselves, but to our contributors,-not even to them only, but to the pastors of our Churches, and to the numerous other friends who have aided in maintaining our circulation,-is it due that THE CHURCH is as vigorous now as it was five-and-twenty years ago.
Still, it is necessary to depend, not upon past or even present success, but upon continued, or rather increased, endeavour. We hope, next year, to “surpass ourselves.” We have already received promises of help in our work, particulars respecting which are to be found eleswhere; but we look for other helpers also. May we hope that we shall receive in the future, what we gratefully acknowledge that we have received in the past, that assistance, of all kinds, without which our own endeavours must be in vain ?
WE have been requested to direct attention to the advertisement which appears elsewhere, announcing the appearance of a New Baptist Weekly Newspaper. That such a paper is needed there is no doubt; indeed, such a paper has been desired for many years. We are thankful, however, to notice, that it is not intended to be antagonistic to any existing paper : it is intended to occupy a place exclusively its own. Will the readers of THE CHURCH support it? They, by themselves alone, could make it immediately a success. We trust that every reader of THE CHURCH will be a reader also of “ THE BAPTIST;" and that all our endeavours, carried on in a spirit of dependance on the Divine favour, and characterised by that "love" which is a “ fruit of the Spirit,” may be the means of advancing the principles that we hold dear, and especially of advancing that kingdom of the Saviour upon which the hopes of the world depend,
Built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being
the chief corner-stone."--Ephesians ii. 29.
