FOR 1873.

PRICE, $3.00 per annum.

The proprietors of the Congregationalist intend that their journal shall merit and reward a circulation and confidence second to no other paper of its class. In addition to features which have for years been well known to the public, we call attention to the following attractions for the year 1873:

(1) An article each month during the year from the pen of Rev. W. H. H. MURRAY, of Park Street Church. These communications will be specially prepared for our colurans, and may be expected to speak for themselves, as the efforts of this exceedingly popular pastor and platform orator are wont to do. While he now and then utters some truth in a way or in a proportion, which does not satisfy all Orthodox men, we take it that nobody who really knows him and his work, fails to recognize in him one of the foremost champions of a truly evangelical faith, and one of the most stalwart assailants of unbelief, error, and evil, in high places and in low; and there are no two opinions as to the freshness and force of his way of putting things.

(2) The Sabbath School Department, containing comments every week upon the Uniform Sabbath School Lessons for 1873, by REV. JOHN TODD, D.D. Dr. Todd needs no introduction to the great army of Sunday-school workers, and expectations of our readers as to the value of the " teachers' helps's which he will furnish during the ensuing year, cannot be too sanguine. Who will not be too glad to join the teachers' meeting" of which this eminent and honored pastor is to be the leader!

(3) A series of articles by the most eminent English clergymen, such as Dean Stanley, Drs. Binney, Raleigh, Allan, Mullens, and Stoughton, Rev. Paxton Hood, and others. We have taken great pains, and are involved in considerable expense, in this endeavour to introduce to our readers some of the best writers of the day, in England, on religious subjects, and are confident that these will be articles of great value and interest. .

(4) A sketchy article every month from MRS. J. D. CHAPLIN. She is one of the few writers who charm alike all classes of readers, whether scholarly or unlearned, old or young.

(5) A Children's Department, which includes each week one or more articles printed in large type. These are designed for the youngest readers, and, though a new feature, they are already looked for with eager interest, and in a multitude of cases are read aloud in the family.

(6) Letters to a Grandmother, by JOHN HENRY. It is both needless and useless to attempt to describe these letters of a promising young man in the city to his country grandmother. The quiet humor, rich

ty, and sterling common sense, displayed in his comments and suggestions, have from the first drawn very wide attention to these letters.

(7) Leiters once in two weeks from Rev. HORACE JAMES, our travelling correspondent in Europe, who goes to Italy, Egypt, and Palestine, and will give our readers the benefit of his observations and ex. perience.

(8) An Agricultural Department under the charge of J. F. C. HYDE, ESQ. Mr. Hyde is not only well known as one of the leading agriculturists and horticulturists of Massachusetts, but he knows how to use the pen most effectively, whether in producing paragraph matter or more elaborate articles, and this feature of our paper may be depended on as one of interest and value for those for whom it is designed.


(9) The beautiful Chromo, AMONG THE FLOWERS, is now furnished as a gift to every new subscriber to the Congregalionalist. Each picture is supplied with a fine black walnut frame, making & premium which as valued at the stores. is worth certainly not less than six dollars and a half. It is only by secur ing & very large number of new subscribers that we shall be able to carry out this offer without pecuniary loss. That this picture is really a beautiful one and fitted to adorn the walls of any drawing-room or parlor, no one will doubt, we think, after reading such indorsements of it as are published fro a week to week in the Congregationalist, from such names as John G. Whittier, Dr. Ray Palmer, Rev. W.L. Gage. Henry Clay Trumbull, and many others. Let the reader remember that we furnish both the picture and the frame as a premium to new subscribers.

We have omitted to mention numerous features, such as Spectator's Washington Letter, our Literary page. Business Article, Market Reports, and various paragraph matter, including Missionary Items, Temperance and Health Items, Pilgrim's Chicago Letter, and occasionally an entire page devoted to one topio, such as the Prayer-Meeting, and the Family; but we are happy to assure our friends that the Con gregationalist was never more fully manned than at present, four editory giving it their entire time, while several departments are in charge of experts out of the office; and we hope to be able to furnish & paper this year which, in ali its various departments, shall be fresh and attractive, helpful in the family, helpful to ministers and churches in their work, and on the whole superior to any previous volume of this journal,

l'he Congregationalist is sent to ail ministers in active service at $2.00 a year, but the premium Chromo cannot be furnished with it at this reduced price.

Complete Sets of The Living Age,

At a Large Discount.

The publishers have a small number of Complete Sets of LITTELL'S LIVING AGE, which they offer at a large reduction from former prices.

As the Sets cannot be reprinted, the last opportunity is now offered not only to procure them cheaply, but to procure them at all.

The last number of the year 1872 completed the Fourth Series, and the One Hundred and Fifteenth Volume, from the beginning of the publication. The regular price of volumes has been, in numbers, two dollars per volume, or, bound in cloth, three dollars per volume. The publishers now offer the Complete Sets (115 volumes), as follows: —

In numbers, or sheets, ready for binding, at one-half the subscription price, viz: $1.00 per volume; or, bound in black cloth, gilt backs, at $1.75 per volume.

A few surplus Sets of the First Series (36 volumes), and of the Second Series (20 volumes), remain, which will be sold separately, at the same rate, if desired. None of the Third or Fourth Series can be sold separately, and the publishers can no longer supply any odd volumes, or numbers, published prior to Jan’y 1, 1868. A few of the Sets of the First Series, only, are bound in red leather backs, cloth sides, which will be sold to those preferring them to the cloth bound sets, at the same rate per volume. With this exception, those desiring a leather, or half leather binding, should purchase the numbers and have them bound in such style as they may prefer.

It is hardly necessary to say to those acquainted with the work, that the same amount of such valuable reading cannot otherwise be purchased with three times the money for which it is here offered ; and while this reduction in price places Sets within the reach of individuals possessing or forming private libraries, the attention of those interested in State, City, Town, College or School Libraries, is particularly called to this last opportunity of supplying their shelves with a complete work which it is believed no library in the country can (under this offer) afford to be without.

Applications for Sets should be made immediately.

When packing boxes are necessary in forwarding Sets, the cost of the boxes will be added to the bill.
