In this American Edition, large additions have been made in some parts ; and in others, considerable portions have been omitted. As some may wish to institute a comparison between the two impressions, the table of contents, in the English copy, has been inserted.

Those who may consult and use this selection, have rightful .claims to an explicit declaration of the principles on which it has been made. This the Editor has no wish to withhold. He solemnly assures the readers of this volume, that in exercising his judgment and taste, respecting the passages best adapted to interest and instruct youth, he has most religiously endeavoured to avoid all bias in favour of any particular sect or opinion. He affects no indifference toward the several schemes which are professedly derived from the sacred writings : but he conceived that this was not the place to allow his preference and convictions to appear. He has ever come to the task of preparing the copy for the press, under a lively sense that the ground was holy ;' and he has endeavoured to put off' all prejudices and prepossessions. By such as examine it with a similar spirit, he rejoices in the persuasion that uprightness of views and impartiality in execution will be allowed him ; and this will, as it ought, be more highly prized than any other commendation.

To his cordial wishes and fervent prayers, that it may prove acceptable and useful to those whose benefit induced the under. taking, THE RISING HOPE OF Society, he will only add to the remarks in the preface, on the importance of the bible as a school book, the following testimony of one of the greatest and best men whom this country or age has produced: “Its morals are pure, its examples captivating and noble. The reverence for the sacred book, that is thus early impressed, lasts long; and, probably, if not impressed in infancy, never takes firm hold of the mind. One consideration more is important. In no book is there so good English, so pure and so elegant ; and by teaching all the same book, they will speak alike, and the bible will justly remain the standard of language as well as of faith.”
