assistance and favour—for which he hopes never to be found ungrateful. It would give him real pleasure to mention the names of certain individuals, to whom he holds himself particularly indebted. But he is not authorized to do this; and till he is, he will not hazard a trespass on the feelings of others, for the gratification of his own.

Several improvements, which it is believed would add considerable value to the contents of this Miscellany, have been in contemplation. Some of them, it is hoped, will appear in the next volume. But the editor is of the mind that it is better to exhibit improvements made, than to pourtray them in promise.

The completion of a volume of his work, and the close of the year, ought forcibly to admonish the editor, and may not unaptly remind all his readers, that every present engagement, and life itself, is hastening to a close. Then, let us remember, the solemn inquest, involving the destinies of eternity, will be made, how we have passed our probationary existence; how every year, and day, and hour of time has been employed; by what motives we have been actuated in all we have done; whether, in the course of life, we have been supremely influenced by a regard to the glory of God, and to our own best interest and that of our fellow men; whether we have lived for eternity more than for time; whether we have been laying up treasure in heaven, or only on the earth. These inquiries, therefore, should command our most serious attention, while investigation may be salutary. Seriously pursued, the inquiries cannot fail to bring home the conviction to every conscience, that transgression and neglect have left us no hope of an acquittal by our final Judge, but from a personal interest, secured by unfeigned faith, in the atoning merits and prevalent intercession of the Lord Jesus Christ. To him, therefore, let the eye of faith be constantly directed; from him, as the inexhaustible source of all spiritual supplies, let grace and aid be earnestly sought, to perform with increasing activity and effect every incumbent duty; that at length-justified by his righteousness, sanctified by his Spirit, and formed into his likeness--we may be admitted to the rest and the reward “which remain for the people of God.”
