The OLD TESTAMENT is now in the press, and the first volume expected out in the month of May. To subscribers the price will be 6 dollars per vol. sheep; $7 in calf; and $5 25 per vol. in boards. On subscribing, the New Testament can be delivered in 3 volumes, being already printed.

The following is taken from the Minutes of the Philadelphia Baptist Associa tion-October, 1815.

"Oct. 18.-This association have heard with pleasure, by a communication from Mr. Woodward, of his intention to publish Dr. Gill's Exposition of the Old Testament, in six large quarto volumes; one of which he hopes, if life and health be spared, to issue every 4 or 5 months, at the price originally proposed; that is, $5,25 each vol. in boards-6 in sheep, and 7 in calf. Resolved that this association recommend to the churches, and the brethren of our denomination generally, the encouragement of the work, and that each church subscribe at feast for a copy for its respective minister for the time being, and communicate the result of their subscriptions to Mr. Woodward, as early as possible. He hopes to issue the first volume in the Spring. Sister associations throughout the union are affectionately invited to patronize the publication, and should their piety and wisdom approve of the measure, recommend the adoption of a plan in their churches generally similar to what is above recommended.”


W. W. Woodward is preparing for the press, in 3 vols. quarto, the Rev. Dr. SCOTT'S FAMILY BIBLE, on a new arrangement. The work will contain every article, except the Marginal References; and the Notes will follow immediately after the verses to which they belong, and the Practical Observations at the end of each chapter. The first volume will be published as speedily as possible.-The flattering encouragement already received, induces the publisher to put to press a large edition. A copy-right is secured for this popular plan. Price in boards 18 dolls. 75 cents, bound 21 dolls. Proposals shall be sent to any per sons who will interest themselves in the work-one copy for every five subscribed for. The Royal Octavo Bible, recently printed by W. W. W. contains all the Marginal References, all the Introductions to the Books, and also to the Chapters, with the General Preface, for $5, common, and $5 50, fine paper; plates added, $1 50; David's Psalms, or Watts's imitation, 50 cents; Concordance, 25 cents. It may be had with or without the above; with them separately, or all Dound in one, or two volumes: one dollar advance, if bound in two volumes.

The FIRST VOLUME will be out in the Spring, and the other volumes as early after as practicable--this plan is exceedingly popular. The following is an extract of a letter from a respectable clergyman:-viz. "I am happy to inform you, your edition, on the new plan, meets the general approbation. Of this will be convinced, when I tell you, that in obtaining two hundred subscribers, you I have done little else than to follow along after Proposals for other editions of the same work. About 40 sets of the above are to be bound in calf-Many have subscribed for this, who have absolutely refused to subscribe for others. I think you may safely conclude, therefore, that many families will be blessed with this excellent work, who would, perhaps, bave ever remained destitute, had it not been for this edition,"
