INTRODUCTORY ADDRESS.

Brethren, beloved of the Lord, we desire to open the new year with, All hail!

to him who sitteth upon the throne and to the Lamb, who hath loved us, and washed us in his own blood," whose mercies are new every

morning, and who watcheth over us every moment. “WHAT! another periodical out?” say you.

“ We have abundance already." Well, the more the better, if they contain holy truths, to gainsay the errors and infidelity now teeming from the press, so awfully aiming to darken the glory of the gospel; to corrupt the morals of youth; and to encourage men who are of reprobate minds concerning the faith. 2 Tim. iii. 8.

It is from motives best known to the Lord and ourselves (which we trust are sincere, for He sees our hearts,) that lead us to continue the publication of the EARTHEN VESSEL. We pray that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us, knowing as we do, that uuless the Lord is pleased to put divine treasure into this VESSEL, (which is Christ Jesus the Lord, with his love, power, and glory,) you will find it empty, dry, and dark, as some others in existence at the present time. We dare not boast, and say it shall be better than others. If the Lord is pleased to pour his holy oil, and heavenly treasure into our hearts ; then, we will gladly pour it into the. VESSEL, and send it to you as we receive it: and holy fire from heaven comes down upon the holy oil in your hearts, and begins to burn, you will have a heavenly candle in your own dwelling, lighting up the inward parts of the belly: revealing unto you“ the light of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." Oh, if this holy, fragrant, anointing oil is caused to flow around your hearts, and into your -souls, and holy fire fastens upon the wick, the very core of your hearts will burn within you, with the flaming love of Christ, and you will have a burning shining light in your own clay cottage ; a light that cannot be hid, shining through every window of your earthly tabernacle, from the good work of the Spirit of God within. Others also will see your light, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Yea, this holy fire will melt the frost within, until it will sometimes run down in warm drops · from the eye windows on the walls of the house.

CHRIST, as revealed in the glories of his Person ; and as manifested and realised in the consciences of his people, is the treasure that we desire to bring to you: nothing else can possibly do you any real or lasting good, We would not be poring over men's corruptions. No, that pleaseth the adversary, and tends to distress the living soul.

We believe that Christ is THE LIFE, the only life ; and that since the fall of man every thing hath death in it, out of Christ; and that all the words and works of fallen men have nothing but death in them without the Spirit of life: until Almighty God, by his Spirit, speaks, and breathes divine life into the soul, the very breath of fallen man hath nothing but death in it. We believe that the preaching of hundreds of ministers in this day, is
