the present Conference year, has been committed
to my hands ; and, in aeeordance with the duty of
my office, tb4s 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, ha a personal
interest in the "Advocate," and work for it accord
ingly. Ail the profits ariing from the publication,
alter paying the Printer and the Editor, will be ap
propriated to the support of the Evangelists.
This Periodical will be devoted to the advocar-y
of Primitive Christianity, the union of Christians,
and the conversion of sinners; and whatever else
may tend to the promulgation of the truth, and the
edification of the saints. And as the Editor is
elected to serve from one Conference to another, it
is deemed best to issne the first number at once, so
that the volume may begin and esd with the Con-fcrt-Hce
year.
Terms: Tire "Disciples' Advocate" will be is-
sued monthly, iu the same style of the "Christian
Preacher." at ft! per annum.

Tis the very worst world that ever was known !'
We desire the paper to speak for itself.
