To persons who are acquainted with the character
and objrets of the Chistiab Worlu, as they have.
been developed during the last six years, it is only ne
cessary to aay, that, as soon as one / o itanif paying
subscribers arc secured, the poper will he put topriss
regularly. The Old Subscription "List ought to
supply this number at once.
To other peraons, it is proper to remark, that the
Christian World, in prim, is intended to reflect the
Christian World, iV) action?-in a word, to daguerreo
ype it: and then, for purposes of common ail vantage,
to compare the organized and operative Religion of
the Age wiih the Religion of the Bible.
The enlarged liternry and business agencies of the
Establishment, are deemed amply sufficient to assure
the public of successful management. Its immediate
connexion with the Chihtian Athknkum?an Insti
tion which is to lie furnished with many of the prin
cipal organs of the Church and Slate, both in Eu
rope and America,?will give ita conductors early ac

Let him aend us at once, as many names and as much

moke themselves responsible for their subsetibers.
this responsibility will be regarded as equivalent to

ever, immediate payments are decidedly preferable;
and, to encourage them, the commissions to agents
are arranged thus:-? On cash orders, 25 per cent:
on deferred remittances, 12$ per cent.

well aware of the seeming insignificance of its first

from slight pains in his chest, back, or stomach, or
from occasional nau-ea, dull headache, extreme ner
vou nes', sleeplessness, trifling prevarication of ap
petite, an l other disagreeable visitations so c mmon

not know that these symptoms, treated so contemp

the liver, which if not remedied, will lead either to
speedy death or a l< ng tiain of unbearable ills which
are known by the following names: Hypochondria,
mania, dizziness, slow fevers, epilepsy, asthma,
