PRE FACE.

A Preface is scarcely necessary to the completeness of a Volume of a Monthly Periodical Work, and cannot be continued from year to year with both pertinence and variety : but we cannot dismiss from under our care the present Volume of a Magazine devoted to Theological Inquiry and Discussion, without congratulating our readers on the triumph which the present year has obtained over bigotry and intolerance, in the Act of Parliament for the relief of Unitarians from penalties, on account of the avowal of their faith. We hail it as an earnest of the emancipation of Christianity from the ignominious domination of human Jaw; and pray that those whom it particularly affects may consider it as both a call to religious zeal and exertion, and a motive to praise of the Divine Goodness.
