- The Presbyterial Critic and Monthly Review” owes its origin to the want, practically felt by its projectors, of some available channel for a fraternal interchange of views, touching the many important questions of church order and policy, which they, as members of the church Judicatories, are called officially to act upon-often without either the means or the opportunity for that mature consideration so necessary to wise and efficient action.

They suppose the same difficulties to have been felt by others, extensively enough to create a demand for some such journal as is now proposed. Nor will the supposition scem extravagant when it is remembered that in the (0. S.) Presbyterian Church-numbering some 250,000 communicants—there must be not far from 10,000 office bearers : Ministers, Elders, and Deacons; and, in addition to these, an unusual proportion of thinking, working, private members -intelligent and inquiring-concerned, not merely for the interests of the one congregation to which they belong, but also in whatever relates to the honor, efficiency and zeal of the whole church. not presuming very largely to expect that among such a body of office bearers, and such a membership, a journal efficiently conducted, and in the right spirit, having as a prominent object the elucidation of the principles involved in the acts and measures of the church, shall not lack patronage.

If, in some of its aspects, our plan seems to be a novelty, it is to be borne in mind that the immense expansion of the Presbyterian body, and of the country at large, has placed the church in this country in novel circumstances. The necessity for a fuller and more general understanding of our principles, as a church, must obviously increase, and the proper application of these principles must become more and more important as the field of the church widens and embraces new and diversified interests.
