THE ECLECTIC MONTHLY ADVERTISER.

A NEW SERIES

OF THE

CHRISTIAN SPECTATOR

Commences January, 1860.

In announcing the close of an old and the beginning of a new life, the proprietors and conductors of this Magazine base their appeal to Christian, and especially to Nonconformist Churches, for an

ENLARGED AND EXTENDED CIRCULATION on its high reputation for religious usefulness, liberality of thought, and literary ability, which it has attained during the past nine years of its existence--characteristics which have placed it by general acknowledgment in the foremost rank of religious periodical literature. In the ensuing series, which will be under new and efficient editorial management, for which a large accession of writers of eminent ability is secured, these characteristics will be maintained.

The general contents of the Magazine will consist of articles of PRACTICAL and MEDITATIVE RELIGION ; of ECCLESIASTICAL and LITERARY HISTORY, BIOGRAPHY, and CRITICISM; of Tales and other PAPERS ESPECIALLY ADAPTED to the TASTE and CULTURE of the YOUNGER MEMBERS of the CHRISTIAN FAMILY; of TRANSLATIONS and REPRINTS from the best FOREIGN RELIGIOUS LITERATURE; of a CHRISTIAN COMMON-PLACE Book of SELECTED Extracts from Old and New Books; and a General Monthly Review of the Progress of the CHRISTIAN MISSIONS of all DENOMINATIONS, and of RELIGIOUS LITERATURE ; two features which will be found together in no other Journal. In a word, the conductors hope to make this Periodical INDISPENSABLE TO EVERY CHRISTIAN MINISTER AND

EVERY INTELLIGENT CHRISTIAN BELIEVER. The Magazine will remain unaltered in size and price. It will consist of sixty-four octavo pages : Price Sixpence.

Orders received by every Bookseller, or the Publishers will send it free by post for twelve months on the receipt of 6s. 6d.

Price 1s, THE COMPANION TO THE ALMANAC,

Sewed in wrapper, price 2s. 6d. The first publication of the BRITISH ALMANAC, thirty-two years ago, put an end, to ise the words of Lord Brougham, to “the disreputable fortune-telling tracts before published by the Stationers' Company; and abandoned by them, other and rational Year-books were substituted in their place.” The vast change that has thus been produced throughout the country has made the British Almanac stand less alone amidst useful Almanacs than when the Duke of Wellington, then at the head of the Administration, directed it to be used in the public offices, where it is still used. It bas endeavoured to maintain its pre- eminence by furnishing the most complete and accurate registers in every department of Government and of public business, presenting in a condensed form all the features of the more expensive “Calendar.” But a wider object was always contemplated, and has been steadily pursued in the union of the British Almanac and the Companion. These, bound together, constitute the most complete, and at the same time the cheapest, Manual of Current Information, and the most trustworthy record for future referenceThe Popular Annual Register.
