the D. seniles of Christ in North Carolina, it
was resolved to establish a Monthly Periodical of
the above name. The ' Advocate'' belongs- to, and
is the organ of the Disciples ot Christ in this State.
The editorial management of the "Advocate." for
the present Conference year, has been committed
to my hands ; and, m aei-ordance with the duty ot
my office, ta4s Prospectus is issued. As the paper
belongs to the Disciples, and not to the Editor, it is
to be hoped that they will make a united and a
strong effort to sustain it. Let each Disciple feel
that he or she, as the case may be, 1ul a personal
interest in the "Advacate." and work for it accord
ingly. All the profits ariwing from the publication,
alter paying the Printer and the Editor, will be ap
propriated to the support ot the Ev&ngeh.-ts.
This Periodii-al will be devoted to the advoeary
of Primitive Christianity, the union of Christians,
and the conversion of sinners; nnd whatever else
mnv tend to the promulgation of the truth, nud the
edification of tbe saints. And as the Editor is
elected to serve from tine Conference to nsnither, it
is deemed be-t to issue the first number nt once, go
that the vi.lume may begin and eBd with the Con
ference year.
Terjiss The "Disciples' Advocate" will be is
sued monthly, in the same style of the "Christian
Preacher," at $1 j-er annum.
All letters on hasiness, commnnic&tinas for pub
lication, pledges and subscriptions, should be ad
