PUBLISHED BY R. B. SEELEY AND W. BURNSIDE;
AND SOLD BY L. AND G. SEELEY,
IT would, perhaps, have been the most natural course, for the present announcement to have appeared with the December number of the CHURCHMAN's Review. The simple truth, however, is, that at that period, drawn various ways by the variety of counsels that were offered, and of plans that suggested themselves, the Proprietors were not able absolutely to decide upon the course which they would, for the future, adopt. It is only within the last few days that they have been able to discern their course, and to make the arrangements which they now desire to announce.
Two deficiencies have been frequently pointed out, by the readers of the Churchman's Review; and to the supply of those short-comings the attention of the Proprietors will now be directed. The first was, the too brief and rapid manner in which, owing to the narrow limits of the Review, subjects of vast importance were frequently dismissed. The average length afforded to each Reviewer was twelve pages; and experience has shewn that this was, in many cases, an injurious limitation. The first change, therefore, will be the extension of these limits, by the necessary enlargement of the publication itself.
