rflMIE M anagers of the "American
Sunday School Union" have com
mitted to the agency of the Subscriber,
a depository of Books in Fayetteville;
which Books will be sold to any Sun
day School Society at the Philadelphia
prices, and to all Societies auxiliary to
the American, at a discount ,of 17 per
The facility afforded by this depositor
ry, of obtaining suitable books at the
lowest rates, will, it is hoped, give a
fresh impulse to the Sabbath School
cause throughout our State. All Socie
ties formed for this object, would find it
their interest to become Auxiliary to
the American Institution at Philadel
phia. For, while the only fee requisite
for such a union is Three Dollars, the
discount allowed, would, in the end, cre
ate a considerable saving. But the great
benefit of such a connexion has its foun
dation in christian benevolence in uni
on of effort in a good cause. The auxi
liary throws its limited experience and
knowledge into the common stock, and,
from the general mass of experiments
and results, derives much light and help.
The mighty work of restraining Sab
bath breach of reclaiming idle and dis
solute youth, & training them, by means
of Sunday Schools, in the paths of lite
rature, morality and religion, is going
on wnn rapm marcn tnrougnoui an
Christendom: and it is earnestly recom
mended to the people of every town and
neighborhood in our State, to avail
themselves of this great moral influence.
The depository is at the Post-Office,
where all applications lor books will be
punctually attended to.
