Did the fault lie with us, we would close the work in silence; but feeling assured that such is not the case, we deem it right and most proper to indicate the door at which it must be laid. We have done what we could; and the press universally, and many of our leading ministers and officebearers, have united in testifying again and again to its excellence, and warmly giving it as their opinion that it was the best religious periodical of the day, and eminently fitted to prove useful to all classes. If, therefore, in the face of this evidence as to its worth, it has to be discontinued, because unsupported, its conductors need not scruple to say, that it has been unjustly treated. Yes, duty compels us to affirm, that while some of our ministers and members have nobly countenanced it, the majority have been guilty of apathy, if not something worse, regarding it.

content to transfer our cause to that awful and important tribunal. While conscious of many shortcomings and imperfections, we can yet solemnly say, that it has ever been our earnest desire to do our part in the matter.

To the many kind friends who have steadily befriended us both contributors and readers we have to express our sincere thanks. Our connection with each other, indeed, can never truly and totally cease, for in its influence that must be eternal; but its literal, earthly termination has come, and therefore we must say Farewell!
