THIS pamphlet goes not forth to the world with any literary pretensions. Written upon the spur of the moment, and amidst the hurry and bustle of professional avocations, it possesses not that polish, and abounds not with those ornaments which characterize the productions, and seem almost indispensible to suit the taste of the present day. Its object is simple-to repel certain calumnious charges brought against the author,--and to furnish the religious part of the community with a hint, as to who the persons are, by whom these charges have been preferred. If, in addition to this, the attention of any shall, by means of the statements which it contains, be directed towards the grand truths for which the author is honoured to contend, and if in consequence of the enquiries suggested by it, the minds of any shall be led to embrace simpler, and clearer, and more scriptural views of the gospel, an advantage shall be gained, more than a recompense for any trouble which he may liave had in preparing it for the press. Passing quickly along, as he is, to an eternal world, and soon to be forgotten among the mass of those who have been, it matters not much what he, or worms of the dust like him, may think of the points in dispute ; but it is of the last importance that he and his fellow travellers should know what the mind of the spirit of God, with regard to them, is, as an error here may be fatal, and if persisted in till death cannot afterwards be retrieved. If the author is conscious of having any ambition, it is this, not that he, or this paltry publication should be talked of, but that by his instrumentality some of his fellow creatures should have their attention directed to those scriptures, which alone can make them wise unto salvation.
