This periodical ran from 1800 to 1803, and is no. 3894 in Roberts, Revival Literature: An Annotated Bibliography. "Several important articles on revivals."
The "Religious Intelligence" of this periodical consists of reports of revival and mission work in many places, including in Kentucky and Tennessee. They include A Charge to the Rev. Joseph Bullen, first Missionary to the Indians, from the New-York Missionary Society for propagating the Gospel among the Heathen; Extract of a Letter from the Reverend Seth Williston, Ontario Co., New York "Once I saw about 400 people assembled in one place...There are some pretty remarkable instances of the sovereignty of grace."; State of Religion in Washington Co., Penn. "that which appears to be the most remarkable is in a new settlement on the west side of the Ohio river, between the waters of the Little and Big Beaver, about forty miles north-west of Pittsburgh. It is only three years since the first inhabitants settled there. The revival began about the first of November, 1798, under the preaching of Mr. Thomas Hughes...These continued in distress of mind about six weeks, before any of them obtained relief"; "A very promising revival of religion began last winter, at Newbury, Vermont, and still continues with increasing purity and power..." There are many such letters in this volume. Also, the ordinations of the first missionaries to Otaheite [Tahiti] with a letter from Captain Wilson, Dec. 16, 1798, describing the journey of the missionaries on the ship Duff.
“Cornelius Davis (1760-1831) was a bookseller and publisher. He also edited theological pamphlets and periodicals, including the New York Theological Magazine [1796-1799]." - New York Society Library website. We also find Mr. Davis published The New-York Missionary Magazine (1800-1803) and The Utica Christian Magazine (1813-1816). We find him listed as a "bookseller and stationer" on Water-Street in New York City in the year 1800. It is likely that his own theological opinions were Calvinist, in that we see many Calvinistic writers in the periodicals that he edited. He had printed and sold John Gillies' Memoir of the life of the Rev. George Whitefield, in 1798, as well as sermons by John M. Mason, Andrew Fuller, Eliphalet Gillet, and Jedidiah Morse. He was also listed in the imprint as one of the sellers of Wilberforce's Practical View, printed in Boston by Manning & Loring in 1799.
