PREFACE.

ANOTHER year has rolled round, and leaves us not as it found us Not to advance is to recede. No change has taken place in the nature of TRUTH. We would wish, we could add, no change has taken place in those who should be the supporters of it. That, they must look toand awful indeed is it, to contemplate individual, and national responsibility -responsibility not self-assumed—not self-imposed — but under which they are placed by the great Arbiter of men and nations, and from which therefore no Act of Parliament—no consent of erring multitudes, can exonerate them.

What nation can throw off its allegiance to Him, by whom alone kings reign and princes decree justice, without bringing itself under a curse, and becoming involved sooner or later in certain ruin!

Why should we seek to become like surrounding nations, when our glory should be, to be different from them? This arises from a false estimate of things.

In the midst of moral and spiritual night, the Gospel of Truth was sent forth to men, to lighten those who sit, in spiritual darkness and the shadow of death, and to guide their feet into the way of Peace. That Truth is the centre around which every movement should turn, for the advancement of which every plan should be directed. It has, indeed, been the one great aim of the PROTESTANT Association to accomplish this throughout every class of society, well knowing that it is righteousness alone which truly exalts a nation, and that sin is a real reproach to any people.

To our Operative Friends we can only say, go on and prosper in your glorious cause : and may each year find you advancing in personal piety, in associated usefulness, -and the great cause of Bible Truth rapidly progressing to its assured triumph over all opposition.
