ments for the friendly steps they have taken in favor of our work; and the generous manner in which they have spoken of its merits, and recommended it to their readers.

We are pleased to find that our Pulpit has been held up to the Mirror of public favor, and that credit has thereby been reflected upon the work—that it has been protected under the friendly influence of the Banner of the Church--we are indebted to the Episcopal Watchman for having taken it under its care, and generously guarded it through the past, as we trust it will through the coming year,--we thank the Messengers, of the north, the west, and the south, that the Pulpit's good name has been heralded, and by them so regularly conveyed to every part of our Union, and through every quarter of our land—the Intelligencer and Soldier have also guarded it with a brotherly, and a Christian care,—we feel also exceedingly obliged to the Churchman of our city, for having extended to us many a generous sentiment and friendly wish-the Traveller has also taken it by the hand, and led it on through its annual march. To all other respected editors, who have favorably noticed our progress, we return our cordial thanks, and at the same time assure them that

they shall in no wise lose their reward;" may the influence of their pens be ever guided by the “ Spirit of Truth,may they turn many to righteousness," and, we most sincerely and devoutly pray, that a kind Providence may smile upon their exertions and zeal for their reader's benefit, and may their labors be greatly and extensively blest; and, in conclusion, we solicit, and trust we shall receive, the friendly countenance, the patronage, and the support of every friend of our Ministry and the Church --and that success thus crown our labors, and we be enabled to put our ardent desires in execution, by raising, for the services of the sanctuary, a pious, and a fearless soldier of the Cross. We trust the Pulpit will be hereafter, (as it has been,) well filled, and that the publication prove not only creditable to the pens of our ministry, but a blessing may descend upon our Zion—that her stakes be strengthened, her cords extended, and that she be recorded, and considered by the wise and good, THE PRAISE

THE WHOLE EARTH.
