THE Editors take this opportunity, at the close of the first volume of the Magazine, to return their thanks to the public, for the very liberal encouragement given to the work. They also return thanks to their correspondents for their generous affiftance in communicating pieces for publication. In compiling the Magazine, the Editors have aimed at variety as well as utility. They have endeavored to adhere to their original plan, and have therefore been obliged to exclude some pieces, which were meritorious, because not coming within that plan. If they have succeeded, in any degree, in promoting the objects originally contemplated, this will compensate them for their expense of time and labor. This success however is not to be attributed to their efforts, but to the intrinsic merit of the pieces communicated to them. That some things should have been admitted not agreeable to the taste of every reader, is no more than was to be expected. The wisest and best men dife fer in their opinions on many subjects not essential to salvation. Their tastes and modes of thinking are different. Hence, the same sentiments, and the same modes of expressing them will not please every one. The Editors however flatter themselves that they have admitted nothing into the Magazine hostile to those fundamental doctrines which are generally taught in this country. They solicit their correspondents to continue their favors, and to furnish them with matter for another volume on the various subjects mentioned in the plan of the work.

It is impossible for the Publishers to bring their accounts into such a situation at present, as to ascertain with precision the number of Magazines fold, and the expenses attending the publication and sale. From the best estimate which can now be made, it appears that upwards of 3000 sets of the work have been disposed of, the net profits of which, provided punctual payment is made, will be nearly or quite 1500 dollars. When the present number shall be delivered out to subscribers,

the accounts will be audited by the Honorable JONATHAN BRACE and JOHN PORTER, Esquires, appointed by the Trustees of the Missionary Society, to afsift the Editors in settling accounts with the Publifhers. A particular statement will then be published of the expenses and profits of the work. As the present number finishes the first volume, it is particularly requested that the Subscribers will remit the pay to the publishers, as soon as possible, that the Missionary Society may be receiving the interest of the profits. The Trustees of the Society have appointed his Honor John TREADWELL and the Rev. Mess'rs Nathan Strong and Abel Flint, to receive the money from the Publishers and pay it over to the Treasurer of the Society.
