THE present day is perhaps unexampled for the number of iu periodical publication In every department of literature these abound, and naturally exercise a vast influence over the minds of the reading public. Many of them are ofa religious character, and are Intended, respectively, to be the organs of some denomination or theological party : hence they are very mainly occupied in attacking or defending some special set of opinions, or maintaining those controversies which are most likely to interest the classes of readers among whom they circulate. Of such publications the value may be very great, and the service they do to the cause of truth often very important. But the Christian, it is presumed, does not wish to breathe always the air of controversy, and would And it a relief to study those pages where mere party disputes have no entrance. It was with this presumption that

<TfK Cfturrfi of Gnglunti 4ttaga;iHc

(under the superintendence of clergymen) was originally prelected—with a desire to place it upon the broad ground of the Church, and to store its columns with devotional matter of such a character as to render it acceptable to all who, whatever their views of party controversy, unite in firmly holding those truths which aro embodied in the formularies of the Protestant English Church.

The experiment has, under the divine blessing, proved successful. The circulation of the Church of England Magazine has, it is believed, exceeded that of any other periodical in connection with the Church—an evidence that men have re;oiced to be able to take up a work which, while anxious xealnusly to maintain the purity of the Gospel, has striven to repress error not by hot disputings, but by the simple quiet inculcation of truth. The Clergy have felt that they could safely recommend, such a work to their parishioners—parents, that they could introduce it into their families without fear ef its imbuiiic their children with a knowledge of those things of which they would choose them to be ignorant : and much gratitude; the conductors of the Church of England Magazine feel to those who have thus contributed to extend the eirculat on of this work.

But widely as it Is circulated, it might be, the proprietors think, circulated more widely still. Its price brings it within the reach of all; and its contents are of that varied character, that, while not unsuited to the cultivating mind, they arc not

;ibove tbt understanding of the mechanic or of the child: and by its wloYi difluslon the influence of those periodicals, irreligious or positively immoral, which are now pushed with so much zeitl. might it is hoped be checked; especially if, as la already in some instances the case, einp'oyers in manufacturing districts would | luce it in the hands of their workmen. For such an ob;ect, the conductors think that they may not improperly request the aid of their brethren, the clergy at large, both to oblige them with their personal countenance and also to promote the circulation in their respective neighbourhoods.

The Magazine comprises erery week a Sermon by some living divine, each printed trom the author's manuscript. Among those who have in this way obliged the Editors may be named the Bishops of London, Winchester, Lincoln, Cheater, Peterborough, Ripon, Worcester, Oxford, Jerusalem (late), Sec.; archdeacons Hoare, Dealtry, Hodson, 4cc. ; chancellor Raikes; canons Dale, Jacob, Towntend, ice.; professors Lee, Scholefleld, ice.; rev. Dr. Symons(vtce-chancellorofOzford), Dr. M'Caui, H.Melville, J. Jackson, R. Harvey, D. .Moore, D. Bagot, J. Sandford, fcc. Articles, also, of general religious interest. Biographies, Natural History, Poetry. icc-, And their place in the Church of England Magazine. An Ecclesiastical Register accompanies every part, containing Ordinations, Preferments, Proceedings of Religious Societies, nnd other useful Intelligence.

Among tbe various additions and improvements vhich hare been lately made, Is the commencing of a series of Views (with description^ of the noble Parish Churches of our land. A. former series of the Cathredals met with much acceptance: this will embrace a larger sweep, and "ill, it is conceived, odd much to the value and interest of the publication.

The conductors would, therefore, respectfully address the clergy to aid them in carrying out their plans, and doubt not that they will And this Magazine suitable both for the family circle, the parochial library, and the poor man's cottage.

It is published in weekly numbers, at l£d. ; in monthly parts, with beautifully engraved frontispiece and wrapper, price 9d., and in half-yearly volumes, hxudsomely bound. In cloth, price Ss. (1.i., by Edwards and Hughes, lit, Ave Maria-lane, and Is to be had of all booksellers. An excellent opportunity is afforded ot fresh subscribers commencing with the January part.
