TO THE PUBLIC. THE Editors have the satisfaction to state, that the rapid sale of their Work has far exceeded their most sanguine calculations, 1200 copies having been disposed of, and a Second Edition of nearly an equal number called for, in less than a fortnight.

A greate?" proportion will be allotted to the Illustration of Scripture, and Sunday School and Missionary Intelligence in the next Number.

You may not yet have considered how much youth want a guide; how ignorant you are; and how ‘ready every child is to fall into evil, and to injure both his body and his soul.

You have often seen a little child fall into mischief by running away from its parents; and most of you still need to be warned against the common dangers of life, and to have it said
