occurred to us, has been the receipt of the following letter from our highly esteemed contributor "Ion,” accompanying an article appearing in the December number, entitled “Give an account of thy Stewardship.”

“ SEPTEMBER 28th, 1863. “Dear Sir.— Through the kindness of a friend, who lent her hand and pen to aid my inability, I am permitted to send a last contribution to the Magazine, which I have long loved, as affording room to speak for Jesus. I cannot without pain close even so small a door of usefulness, but linger with my hand still upon its hinge, that I may look and speak a loving farewell' to my brothers and sisters, who yet remain in the field of Sunday school labour. There is no need of my feeble testimony to the faithfulness of a prayer-hearing God; but so sweet is it to tell of, that I must beg your indulgence yet one last time. Dear Mr. Editor, my dying couch (or what seems, to all human judgment, likely to be so) has, within the space of one fortnight, been cheered by the avowal of four individuals, who had been the subjects of anxious waiting and supplication for several years, that they have been led to see and believe in Jesus crucified. Shall I own that in one case I had not faith enough to expect that this side of eternity would make known to me the answer of peace ?: Thus are my days of silent waiting made vocal with thanksgiving—He is faithful that promised ! If you think this incident might encourage some one who has already waited years for a soul's new birth, you are welcome to communicate it, not naming me.

dear Sir, will you accept my Christian regards and thanks for the uniform kindness with which you have received my little papers, and believe me,

“ Yours in Jesus." “ Finished Sept. 30."

We have one other cause for regret, and which it is in the power of our readers to remove. The benefit to be derived from the Magazine is much limited by the mode adopted for its circulation amongst teachers. It is necessary, in order to preserve an interest in it, that each teacher should have an opportunity of reading it during the current month; and, in order to this, we earnestly urge that one copy should be taken in for every four teachers: so that one week during the month may be allowed to each.

And now,

It will be perceived that several pictorial illustrations have been inserted : and we expect that during the ensuing year, the number of such embellishments will be increased.

We ask the prayers of our readers, that the Holy Spirit may so guide the minds of the Editor and contributors, that the Magazine may be rendered still more useful in promoting, in various ways, the great work of Christian education throughout the world.

December, 1363.
