AMERICAN BAPTIST MAGAZINE. It is known to many of our readers, that this work from its commencement in the Autumn of 1803 has been published by the Baptist Missionary Society of Massachusetts. Events however have taken place during the present year, which have rendered it important in the judgment of its former Patrons to make a new arrange
At the request of the acting members of the Baptist Board of Foreign Missions, (now located in the vicinity of Boston,) this periodical publication has been transferred to them. The next number will be the first of the New Series; and measures are now in operation to obtain an able and pious Editor, who, it is hoped, will find it convenient to enter on his labours immediately,
The general character of the American Baptist Magazine will continue the same. While it may be expected that its pages will be enriched with “ original communications," designed to promote the cause of practical piety, it may also be expected, that there will be a larger portion of Missionary Intelligence than formerly.
The profits of this work, as they have been hitherto, will be faithfully appropriated to Domestick and Foreign Missions.
