PROSPli6TUS.
SMuch has been said and written on
the subject of Peace; it is admit'ted to
be an interesting one; it. admitted to
be closely connected 0f  the gospel
of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is even
admitted to be enjoined by that gospel
on all who profess obedience to it;
that it is an object most ardeitly to
be desired, and that it will ultimately
be established, to the utter and eternal
extinction of all that stands6pposed
to. it.
These -are senfiments and feelin'gs
genee ally prevalent among Christians;
and y-t it is no less a fact, that it is
treated with great indifference by ma-
ny, and by others openly disavowed,
as it respects its present practical
adoption.
As avowed advocates bf the cause
of peace on earth, and good-will
among men, becausqwe view it to
be an indispensable pre-requisite to
. the full and realizing anqnowledgment
of glory to- God in the highest,; we
are anxious to bring forward an iqui-
ry into the cause of this supineness
and .disregard, and to press, it on the
reflections of our, fellow-christians,
because'we re but-too apprehensive,
that the caus of peace cannot be uni-
versally em raced on Chriktian priln-
ciples, u   .those who already pro-
fess those p'inciples? become themselves
examples, f their powerful sufficiency
to.sppre s all the elullitions of strif6,
ad'to establish peace and -ood-will

on the firm.and -durable basis of mu-
tual self-denial, fbrbeatrance, eandour,
justice, and charity...
In fact, we wish that it shotld b
distinctly ascertained whether the self
denying, the-enduring, unresis'ing pr
cepts, exemplified in the chidracteV
and life, the sufferings and death, of
Jesus Christ, are absolutely obligatory
on his followers-or not, as theproper
rule and guide of their condct and
whether there is not cause to stas ect
some latent error 'in our estimate of
the standard of 'Christianity, while
those who avow a conforniity to it,
leave out of that estimate this practic(
adherence to the precepts nd exam-
.ple of their acknowledged .1ord and
Master.   -
In reviving at this timne the AdvQ-
cate of Peace, and uniting as is a s-
sociaje The Christian Patriot,' the
Editors are d.esirois' to remove the
stumbling-block out ofthe .way to a
complete and permanent peace among.
those who profess to admire and to
be governed by the Gospel of Peace;
by. endeavouring to show the accord-
-ance of pacific princi es with the
truest patriotism, and the most exalted
virtue: and theyope to be' enabled,
under the guidance of God's Spirit io
pojnt out by what meai Christians
May agree in the spirit of conciliation
to magnify the religion of Jesus, y

which have so long distracted .aid
