Whate'er a blooming world contains,
That wings the air, that skims the plains,

United praise bestow:
Ye dragons, found his awful name
To heay'n aloud; and roar acclaim,

Ye swelling deeps below!

Let ev'ry element rejoice:

Ye thunders, burst with awful voice

To him who bid you roll!
His praise in softer notes declare, , '. ,

Each whispering breeze of yielding air, "••'

And breathe it to the soul.

To him, ye graceful cedars, bow!
Ye tow'ring mountains, bending low,

Your great Creator own;
Tell when affrighted nature shook,
How Sinai kindled at his look,

And trembled at his frown.

YeVnorhtn'e drarms ofrg^i*ntrtrr-p4eare-,
Nurs'd on the downy lap ot ease,

Fall prostrate-at his throne!
Ye princes, rulers, alt adore!
'Praise him, ye kings, who makes your power
An image of his own.

Ye fair, by nature form'd to move,

O praise th' eternal source of love, . •

With youth's enlivening fire!
Let age take up the tuneful 1 iy,
Sigh his bless'd name—then soar away,

And ask an angel's lyre.


IT is with great satisfaction we ! learn that an uniform edition of- the works of Bishop Home, is about to make'its appearance in six volumes octavo.

The works of the learned critic Mf.'Bryant, are also preparing for a complete edition.

The new edition, with considerable additions, of the Essays os' William and Thomas Ludlam, which we announced in our Magazine for April • last, is at the point of making its appearance in 2 vol. 8vo.

"In these Essays, the justness of the reasoning employed, and the propriety of the language adopted, by those persons, who, in these days, wish to recall into the Church the absurdities of Schooi-'siivinity,

the miserable nonsense of ;a CnV vinistical Creed, and the nauseow* affectation of Puritanical Cant, and who, with such peculiar truth find singular modesty, style themselves Gospel Ministers and Evangelical Preachers, are fiflly considered."

The Botaiiicai Drawing Book,' by the ingenious naturalist Mr.1 Sowerby, is just completedj and will be published immediatCh/V He has also nearly rdady for publication a Scheme of Colbrirs, in which will be introduced a Chromometer, or means of measuring colours upon an easy and simple, principle, so as to measure any simple tint to infinity.
