Excerpt from The Christian Herald, 1818, Vol. 5
In No. 25 of the last Volume of The Christian Herald, the editor announced his design to make some alteration as to themode of publishing it; an arrangement which his other avocations rendered indispensable. He also intimated his intention to increase in this Volume 'the quantity of serious and edifying compositions, either original or selected. On this latter point, some further explanation may be requisite.
Though the difi'usion of religious intelligence has always been the main design of this publication, still it was deemed not incompatible with that object to occupy a portion of our pages with short tracts tending to illustrate or enforce immrtant truths. These, besides imparting that additional interest which variety of matter is calculated to produce, may like wise render the work more extensively useful and more gene rally acceptable. In pursuing this plan it will be the study of the editor not to depart from the catholic principles qf 0:71}t on which he has hitherto endeavoured to conduct this miscellany. He will also consider it conformable to the general character of the publication to aim at inculcating truths of a practical, in preference to those of a speculative nature.
Communications comporting with the above views will be thankfully received and duly attended to.
