maintaining his ground, and proving it by advancing on the lines of the enemy. In the town of old Cumnock about twenty of us sat around the table of the Lord, publishing his death, and looking for his second coming. I was strength ened to deliver a course of lectures on the faith and hope of the Gospel. In Cumnock two promising men made a good confession of faith, and in the river of Nith testified their allegiance to a new Master. The chief root of bitterness which they have, arises from the fact, that several of the baptized are dark as midnight on the design of the institution, and are only willing to have two witnesses where God has given three. I trust, however, that if they are sincere, more light will be given and received. After travelling nearly a thousand miles, and delivering twenty-eight discourses on the kingdoms of grace and of glory, I find myself again in Nottingham with renovated health, rejoicing in the good Providence of God, and in the esteem and confidence of my brethren. I remain, dear brother, truly yours,

G. GREENWELL.

CONCLUDING REMARKS. We have now concluded our second volume of the new series, making the eleventh of our humble endeavours to scatter the seeds of truth and righteousness in our highly favoured land. The volume now ended contains matter fully as interesting and important as any of its predecessors. It will bear comparison with any other work of a similar kind either on this or the other side of the Atlantic. But no thanks to us for this, seeing we are not the originators of the matter, but only the collectors and compilers of what others produice-except now and then we throw in an idea or two to co-mingle with the rest, for the instruction and good of all. We hope, in the forthcoming year, an impetus will be infused into our pages that will be to it as life from the dead. Our resources are abundant, and still increasing; and should brother Campbell, with an associate, visit our native land, we shall bespeak their assistance and co-operation in this department of labour, for the edification of all.

To struggle hard for ten years without remuneration other than the satisfaction of knowing we are doing good, calls for courage, selfdenial, and perseverance. But this is the seed time, the harvest and the reward are in the distance. “In due time we shall

reap

if we faint not.” To look for immediate success, to expect the harvest at once, and to be discouraged because it is not realized, or because difficulties obstruct the way, would show a want of faith and confidence in the Captain of our salvation, and in the verity of that cause to which we hope more unreservedly to be devoted the remainder of our days.

Our number one of volume three will be issued, (D. V.,) on the first of January, and we again solicit the co-operation of all the brethren. A wider and more extended circulation is needed, and ought to be obtained. It could easily be accomplished were all the churches determined to be active and liberal. Brethren, the time is short. “ Let us not sleep as do others.” Another year has nearly run its short but important round, and time is winging us onward into the immediate presence of our heavenly King. May we each stand before him with acceptance and joy, hearing the welcome plaudit, “ Well done, good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of thy Lord ?
