PROSPECTUS OF THE SOUTHERN CHURCHMAN, To be published weekly in the City of Rich mond, Va. Subscription $2 50. Editor, Rev. WILLIAM F. LEE. THIS publication will be commenced as soon as a number of subscribers sufficient to jus tify the step can be obtained. Its peculiar theology will be that of the Pro testant Episcopal Church. • A principal reason for the commencement of this publication is, that, with the exception of the Gospel Messenger, a monthly pamphlet, whose circulation is believed to be confined almost ex clusively to the State of South Carolina, there exists no periodical devoted to the interests of the Protestant Episcopal Church throughout all our Southern and Southwestern country, which embraces a population of five millions of souls. A Southern paper, adapting itself to the pecu liar wants, and meeting with promptitude the local circumstances of the Southern Church, it is believed, would best subserve her interests. Second in prominence to the exhibition of man as a sinner, Christ crucified as an all-suffi cient Saviour, and the Holv Spirit as an essen tial agent in the work of human salvation, the Southern Churchman will present the distinct ive characteristics of Episcopalians. It will be the prompt and zealous advocate of institutions, properly conducted, designed to afford to mem bers of the Church facilities for early instruction, and sound expositions of the nature and grounds of our pure faith, primitive order, and scriptu ral liturgy. In benevolent enterprises of an enlarged and national character, in the prosecution of which tlie principles of sectarism may be avoided, and Protestant Christians meet upon common ground,it will labor tft promote a union asstrong as Christian charity can cement, and as com prehensive as the world. The Southern Churchman will omit no means of procuring for Us readers the earliest intelli gence of interesting movements in the Christian world, and in the Church in its more domestic relations. It will not be unmindful of the litera ture of religion. It will strive to promote a Missionary spirit in the Churches. A cordial and zealous co operation will be given to the Temperance cause. Southern by birth, residence, and strong at tachment, and perfectly familiar with the diffi culties of a conscientious discharge of duties arising from the existence of a peculiar caste among us, the Editor hopes to render to the anx ious Christian master such aids as the faithful exposition of the word of God, in connexion with the experience and lights of others, simi larly situated, may afford. The humble but most earnest efforts of this print will be used to raise, to its scriptural eleva tion, the standard of piety in the Church. Esta blished, not in the spirit of opposition, nor as the organ of a party, it will labor to promote the harmony of the Church, assured that Discord is the deadliest foe to godliness, and that only when united in feeling and effort throughout all her borders, can she attain to that usefulness and elevation which belong to her as an institution of God, designed to bless and renovate the world. The Southern Churchman will he published weekly in the City of Richmond, V a. at &2 50 per annum, if paid in advance; otherwise S3 will he demanded. Its sheet will equal in size and quality to that upon which the Episcopal Re corder or the Churchman is published. 23?* Subscriptions will he received in this place (Alexandria I). C.) by either of the Epis copill clergymen, or by Mr. Cassius F. Lee and William M. Morrison, and in Virginia, by the Episcopal Clergy generally. Recommendation of Rishop Moore. September 5, 1834. The Rev William F. Lee having it in con templation to publish a weekly paper in the City of Richmond, embracing the principles of the Protestant Episcopal Church, and the cause of religion in general, and entertaining a confi dence in his judgment and his ability, 1 hereby recommend the proposed work to the friends of the Church, from a full persuasion that it will prove conducive to the cause of vital piety, and Christian doctrine and practice. RICHARD CHANNING MOORE, Bishop of the Diocese ol V irginia. Extract from a Letter from the Rt. Bee. Bishop Meade, dated August 24. 1834. <* i need not say that in your ability to conduct such a paper creditably to the cause, and in the soundness of those principles which will distin guish it, 1 have great confidence. “ May our Divine Master guide you, and bless you in every good work which you may undei take, is the prayer of your affectionate friend and brother, " • MEADE. _Rev.
