A Publication of a mature similar to that of the EcclesiasticAL and UNIVERSITY ANNUAL REGisTER, has been too long wanted to allow the Editors to suppose, that any apology is necessary for its appearance; they will therefore barely remark, that as the subjects recorded in the present volume are those, which must necessarily be acknowledged to be of the highest importance, and of the deepest interest, so the use of recording them must be equally obvious to the most indifferent and superficial observer.

In the conduct of future volumes, the Editors beg leave to invite the cordial co-operation of every member and well-wisher of the established church; they invite them to make communications of all such circumstances, in their respective neighbourhoods, and jurisdictions, as they may consider to be of sufficient importance to be made known to their clerical brethren; promising at the same time, that every attention shall be paid to those communications, and every assistance given in order to render the objects of them effective.

With respect to the Biographical Department, which it is their wish should form a distinguishing feature of the Publication, they have to observe, that they will be particularly obliged to those gentlemen, who will favour them with any original letters, papers, or communications, relative to those distinguished characters, whose memoirs will be given in their subsequent volumes, and whose names will be imparted, in answer to any inquiry to that effect, by the Publishers. An opportunity so favourable, the Editors are happy to embrace, in order to return their best acknowledgments to those gentlemen, who have been pleased to favour them with advice, and to honour them with assistance;--they would consider it a proud circumstance, were they at liberty to state to whom they are indebted for those obligations---such statement would in some measure discharge their debt of gratitude; would command to them respect for the present, and insure ample encouragement for the future.

In consequence of the great expense that has been incurred in printing the Appendix, the price of the present volume is considerably higher, than will be that of any future one---the value of that Appendix however, will more than counterbalance the difference in the Price.

+4t Any intimations of errors, omissions, and hints, for the improvement of the Ecclesiastical Register, will be thankfully received.
