The London Christian Observer I consider as one of the most talented periodicals of the day, conducted on liberal and evangelical principles.

JOHN JOHNSTONE, Pastor of the Pres. Ch., Jane St. N. Y.

I have read for several years the Christian Observer, and think highly of its evangelical principles, and of its tendency to promote, to a great extent, the truth which is according to godliness. JAMES CHRYSTIE, Pastor of the Ref. Pres. Ch, N. Y.

I cheerfully unite in recommending this valuable periodical, to aid in extending its circulation.

I have had the pleasure to read the London Christian Observer for more than twenty-five years; and always have admired the publication on account of its bold advocacy of the doctrines of free grace. Most of the present real piety and zeal of the Established Church in Britain may be ascribed to the existence and far-spread influence of this work; and I am sure that hundreds of ministers of various names and communions will rejoice in being introduced to this valuable Magazine. It seems to me that the republication of the Christian Observer, in all probability, will be a means of great good in this country, by bringing before the clergy and laity the opinions and views of the pillars of the English Episcopal Church in relation to the true character and effects of the "Oxford Controversy."

JOHN O. CHOULES, Minister of the Bap. Ch., Sixth St., N. Y. We cordially approve of the design to republish in this country the London Christian Observer-and trust that this valuable Magazine will be very entensively circulated.

WILLIAM R. WILLIAMS, Minister of the Bap. Ch., Amity St., N. Y.

The thirty volumes of the London Christian Observer which I possess, I rank among the most valuable books in my library. I have long been accustomed to regard the Christian Observer as at the head of that class of religious periodicals.

The announcement of its intended republication in New York, at a very cheap rate,
gives me great satisfaction, and I trust it will obtain a wide circulation in our
country.
JOHN FORSYTH, Jun. Pastor of the As. Ref. Ch., Newburg.

ABSALOM PETERS; HENRY WHITE, Union Theo. Sem., N. Y.

I have been well acquainted with the London Christian Observer in former years, and regard it as one of the most evangelical and able periodicals with which the Christian world has been blessed.

W. B. SPRAGUE, Pastor of the Second Pres. Ch., Albany.

I have been a subscriber for the London Christian Observer, and fully concur in the above opinions of its merits, and of the usefulness of its republication in this country. RANSFORD WELLS, Agent of the Gen. Synod of the R. D. Ch.

I am very glad to find that the London Christian Observer is about to be republished in this country. Being acquainted with its contents, I am certain that at this stage of public opinion in regard to Oxford Tractarianism, it cannot fail to be useful. B. V. ZANDT, Pastor of the Ref. Dut. Ch., Newburgh.

I possess the volumes of the Christian Observer from its origin for a series of years. I highly appreciate its value, and rejoice to find that its numbers are again to be republished in this country.

ASHBEL GREEN, late Pres. of Nassau Hall Col., Princeton.

The pious Christian cannot fail to derive much spiritual instruction from the columns of the London Christian Observer, which most ably opposes the substitution of "the form of godliness for the power thereof," while at the same time it is full of truth in a didactic form. I therefore cheerfully add my recommendation to those of my fathers and brethren.

GEORGE W. BETHUNE, Minister of the Third Ref. Dut. Ch., Philadelphia. I value the London Christian Observer highly, and rejoice at the prospect of its being reprinted in this country.

JOEL PARKER, Pastor of Clinton St. Pres. Ch., Philadelphia.

I cheerfully join in commending the Christian Observer as admirably fitted to accomplish the object proposed

JOHN B. DALES, pastor of the As. Ref. Ch., Philadelphia.

I do not think that any other publication from across the ocean could be issued in this country which would be so useful as the London Christian Observer.

A. D. GILLET, Pastor of the Eleventh Bap. Ch., Philadelphia. The London Christian Observer has been for forty years the organ of the evangelical portion of the Church of England. It has been, under Providence, one of the chief instruments in reviving and promoting in the British isles sound Protestantism and spiritual Christianity in opposition to Popery and formalism; and it is now waging a vigorous warfare against Puseyism. It is conducted in a fine tone of Christian feeling, and is replete with matter adapted to promote practical religion. HENRY A. BOARDMAN, Pastor of the Walnut St. Pres. Ch., Philadelphia. I have no doubt that the London Christian Observer will be useful in this country, and am glad that it is to be re-published.

THOMAS H. STOCKTON, Editor of the Christian World, Philadelphia. The high character of the London Christian Observer, and its great services in the cause of evangelical truth, render its appearance in this country, at this juncture, an enterprise, the success of which has my ardent wishes. J. KENNADAY, Pastor of Trinity M. E. Ch., Philadelphia.

All who wish to aid in checking the progress of Popery and Puseyism, should aid in circulating the London Christian Observer.

J. LANSING BURROWS, Pastor of the Sansom St. Bap. Ch., Philadelphia. For a number of years I have read with much interest the London Christian Observer, and value it highly, and with much pleasure I add my testimony to those who have recommended it. It is an able advocate of sound evangelical principles, and I shall rejoice in its extensive circulation in this country.

WILLIAM A. M'DOWELL, Cor. Sec. of the Gen. As. B. Mis. The republication of the London Christian Observer, I doubt not, will be an important service rendered to our common Christianity.

J. CASTLE, Pastor of the Union M. E. Ch., Philadelphia.

I regard the republication of the London Christian Observer at this crisis, as calculated, under the blessing of God, to render material assistance to those who love God's truth, and who desire the overthrow of error.

J. F. BERG, Pastor of the First Ger. Ref. Ch., Philadelphia.

I regard the London Christian Observer as one of the best periodicals in circulation. WILLIAM NEILL, Pres. Min., Philadelphia. Though adverse to the prelatical form of Church Government, yet, as the London Christian Observer is decidedly evangelical in its doctrinal character, and thoroughly opposed to the Oxford Tractarian party, I concur in recommending the republication. JOSEPH T. COOPER, Pastor of the Second As. Ch., Philadelphia. With the above recommendation I concur.

WILLIAM RAMSEY, Min. of Cedar St. Pres. Ch., Philadelphia.

Believing that the republication and extensive circulation of the London Christian Observer will subserve a valuable purpose in opposing the progress of the unscriptural and dangerous errors of the Oxford Tractarians, I cordially concur in the preceding recommendations.

THOMAS O. LINCOLN, Pastor of the Spruce St. Bap. Ch., Philadelphia. Presuming that the London Christian Observer still retains the same elevated character which distinguished its former course, I cheerfully concur in the above recommendations. THOMAS BRAINERD, Pastor of the Third Pres. Ch. Philadelphia. From every lover of Divine truth, and the spiritual kingdom of Christ, the proposal to republish, at so moderate a price, that distinguished advocate and herald of evangelical religion, the London Christian Observer, it appears to me, must meet with a hearty response. In the present alarming state of things among us, such a proposition is most happy, and, I trust, directed by a merciful Providence.

C. C. VAN ARSDALE, Pastor of the First Ref. Dut. Ch., Philadelphia. We are glad that the London Christian Observer is to be reprinted in this country, and fully concur in the foregoing recommendations.

CHRIST. OBSERV. No. 64.

I know of no means by which the press can better contribute to the support of the Protestant cause, than by the republication of the London Christian Observer in this country. With the Divine blessing, it will help to check the growing disposition of many of our countrymen to regard Popery as a harmless delusion.

C. WEBSTER, Pastor of the First As. Pres. Ch., Philadelphia. It must give pleasure to every true Protestant, that the London Christian Observer is about to be republished in this country.

WILLIS LORD, Pastor of the Seventh Pres. Ch., Philadelphia.

It is scarcely necessary to add our testimony to the above reiterated assurances in behalf of the republication of the London Christian Observer in this country. THOMAS T. WATERMAN, Pastor of the Fifth Pres. Ch., Philadelphia. J. HELFENSTEIN, Pastor of the Ger. Ref. Ch., Germantown.

We cordially approve of the object contemplated in the republication of the London Christian Observer, and believe that it will promote, at the present time, the interests of truth and godliness.

W. HAMILTON, HENRY SLICER, HEZEKIAH BEST, W. PRET-
TYMAN, JOHN GUYER, B. H. CREVER, J. W. CULlum,
Ministers of the Methodist E. Church, Baltimore.

The London Christian Observer is the organ of the Evangelical party in the English Establishment, and has long been conducted with vigour and ability. I am myself a decided opponent both of Prelacy and Church Establishments, in all their forms; but between the Evangelical party and the High-Church party among English and American Protestants, I heartily desire the success of the former, whom I consider true followers of my Divine Master. To this extent I concur in recommending the proposed republication of a periodical which may arrest, in some degree, the melancholy tendency to Popish doctrines and practices, which is so manifest among the followers of the Oxford Tractarians.

ROBERT J. BRECKINRIDGE, Pastor of the Second Pres. Ch., Baltimore.

I fully concur in the views expressed by Dr. Breckinridge; and to the same extent and on the same grounds, cordially unite with others in recommending the London Christian Observer to the Christian public.

G. W. MUSGRAVE, Pastor of the Third Pres. Ch., Baltimore.

I cordially concur in recommending the London Christian Observer, as one of the ablest religious periodicals in the world.

BENJAMIN KURTZ, Pastor of the Luth. Ch., Baltimore. J. G. MORRIS, Pastor of the First Luth. Ch., Baltimore. JOHN HEALY, Pastor of the Second Bap. Ch., Baltimore. I am happy to unite with the foregoing recommendations of the London Christian Observer, with which I have been acquainted for the last seventeen years.

I cordially concur in the above recommendations of the London Christian Observer, and believe its republication in this country will aid the cause of Protestantism.

Observer; and trust its republication in this country will be eminently blessed in aid of the cause of evangelical religion and true Protestantism.

JOHN HAESBAERT, Pastor of the Second Ger. Luth. Ch., Baltimore.
SAMUEL GUTELIUS, Pastor of the Ger. Ref. Ch., Baltimore.
CHARLES WEYL, Pastor of the Trinity Luth. Ch., Baltimore.

GEORGE F. ADAMS, late Bishop of the Calvert St. Bap. Ch., Baltimore.
JAMES W. GOODMAN, Bap. Min., Baltimore.

JOSEPH MITTAM, Pastor of the Bap. Ch., Pikesville, Md.

The names already collected are ample vouchers that it is admirably fitted for the great work of increasing the knowledge of the Gospel of our common Lord.

SAMUEL K. JENNINGS, DAVID E. REESE, JOSIAH VARDEN, JAMES
R. WILLIAMS, Ministers of the Meth. Prot. Ch., Baltimore.

STEPHEN CHAPIN, late Pres. of Columbia Col., Washington. JOHN C. SMITH, Pastor of the Fourth Pres. Ch., Washington. It affords me unfeigned gratification to add my testimony in favour of the London Christian Observer, which is a publication eminently calculated to advance that blessed cause which eventually must triumph.

SEPTIMUS TUSTON, Chaplain of the U. S. Senate.

The republication of the London Christian Observer in this country is calculated to do much good. A work of that character is greatly needed at this time; and it gives me great pleasure to learn that it is about to be reprinted. I hope that it will receive the patronage it so richly merits.

O. B. BROWN, Pastor of the First Bap. Ch., Washington.

I feel deeply interested in the truths of the glorious Gospel of the ever blessed God.
