Reference was made to the title, "The Christian mirror", as being the successor to this title, but further reading found that, "True to resolutions, the next volume appeared in new dress. The name was changed to The Christian Banner and the explanation given that, "the Christian Banner is designed to be the successor of the Christian and the Witness; and therefore it appears in its place as volume six." This, together with the statement that no correspondence regaring the name or work of the intervening publication [The Christian mirror] would be admitted to the Banner, leads one to suppose that the editors wanted the 1851 publication forgotten. Commenting on the change of name, an exchange wrote, 'The Christian Mirror has ceased to reflect the face of our Canadian brethren. They have left the wardrobe and taken to the field under the Banner.'" As a result of this, no link has been made to the title, The Christian Mirror.
