SERMONS. « This Volume possesses the excellence of setting forth clearly and decidedly the peculiar truths of the gospel, as recognised by the standards of all the Protestant Churches. But this, though in our estimation their highest, is not all their praise. They are no common-place Sermons. They display a vigorous mind, and original manner both of thought and expression, well calculated to arrest attention to the important truths which they contain. Sermon VI., on the Atonement, we particularly admire, as giving a view of that subject at once profoundly philosophical and truly scriptural," &c.-Presbyterian Review.
- Very eloquent and impressive Sermons. They are particularly valuable for the views which they present of the person and work of Christ."-WesleyanMethodist Magazine.
Demy 8vo., Cloth Boards, Price 128. 6d. NUGÆ LITERARIÆ.—PROSE AND VERSE. " These Essays are the products of a scholar,-a thinking and refined mind, - just and rational perceptions,-a graceful imagination, study, and reflection. ... The Volume deserves a place in every library where polite literature is cherished."--Literary Gazette.
“Nugæ! Trifles! But greatly will they be mistaken who expect to find in this volume the diversion of idle hours! Here is nothing for sentimentalism, or voluptuous indolence. The mind must be braced, and all its powers called into exercise, ere these pages can be profitably studied; and then there will be a rich reward in the intellectual gratification which will be afforded. The very titles of the several papers will startle the indolent, but will quicken and sharpen the faculties of the studious. The perusal of the papers themselves will task even disciplined powers, and will lay under requisition the most enlarged information. Extensive and recondite research, profound speculation, elaborate disquisition, learned criticism, keen and witty satire, may all be found in these pages."-Congregational Magazine.
“ Each one of the Essays in the Volume, and they are eleven in number, deserves a place among the first productions of the year, and would alone confer upon its writer a high literary reputation.”—Eclectic Review.
THE LITTLE SANCTUARY,
Weeks: to which are added, Offices for Special Occasions. “ It is thoroughly evangelical in sentiment, devout in sp
norment, devout in spirit, extensive in its range, and varied in its topics.”--Eclectic Review.
i The Prayers contained in this volume are thoroughly orthodox in doctrine, and breathe throughout a spirit of pure and fervent devotion."-Wesleyan-Methodist Magazine.
*** Mr. Hamilton's volume has the high recommendation of being most appropriate. There is nothing circuitous, parenthetical, involved, or recondite, in these Offices of Devotion. The style is distinguished by simplicity and beauty, and is, moreover, rich in Scripture sentiment and quotation. . . . They are evangelical in the best sense of the word. ... All the offices of Christ,--all the doctrines of the gospel,--the regenerating influences of the Holy Spirit, and practical sanctification, are never lost sight of."-Congregational Magazine.
“ The name of the respected author will be a guarantee that the Prayers are not only devotional, but orthodox and evangelical."-Watchmem.

October 11th, 1842, Before the Representatives of the Congregational Union of England and
Wales, assembled in that Town. « As might have been expected from a truly honest man, the Preacher speaks like a thorough Congregationalist..... We are always glad to find any production of Mr. Hamilton's on the Table.'"-Wesleyan-Methodist Magazine.
" This able and beautiful Sermon is founded on several passages in the first Epistle to the Corinthians and in that to the Ephesians..... Mr. Hamilton possesses a manly mind. He thinks for himself, and speaks what he thinks with courage and force. These are qualities deserving of high estimation. For ourselves, we number Mr. Hamilton among the ornaments of our denomination, and acknowledge with gratitude his recent contributions to its literature. The present Discourse will sustain his reputation, while it adds to the obligations of his brethren."-Congregational Magazine.

XIII. BY MRS. BEDDOW. Second Edition. 18mo., Price ls. 6d., Cloth Boards. USE THEM; OR GATHERED FRAGMENTS : MISSIONARY HINTS, AND ANECDOTES FOR THE YOUNG.
By Mrs. BEDDOW.
A Sequel to “Use Them, or Gathered Fragments." “Both these pretty little volumes are designed to promote a Missionary spirit amongst the young, and are well adapted for the purpose. In Use them,' frugality is inculcated, not for selfish ends but in order that what is saved may be given; and there is a plan for a Juvenile Working Society for promoting Christian Knowledge.' In Perseverance Rewarded,' various details of Missionary operations and successes are told in such a way as will be likely to interest the youthful mind. The London Missionary Society is evidently that of which Mrs. Bendow has most intimate knowledge, and with which her sympathies are most closely bound up; but when she refers to kindred institutions, it is always in a liberal and kindly spirit. Her little volumes are likely to be useful.”—Watchman.
« The friends and advocates of Ladies' Working Associations for missionary purposes, will find the little volumes whose titles precede this notice, valuable teachers and instruments in establishing and sustaining them.

CHRISTIAN MEDITATIONS ; OR THE BELIEVER'S COMPANION IN SOLITUDE. « A spirit of deep and earnest devotion breathes in them all, and the sentiments in general are as correct as the feeling is devout. We say, in general, for as the Theology is evidently Calvinistic, there are points on which we differ widely from the Author. We mention this not as finding fault, but simply as stating the fact."-Wesleyan-Methodist Magazine.
"A devotional Treatise on experimental religion and a suitable companion to Christian Retirement.' We sincerely thank the Author for this addition to the devotional literature of our country; we feel gratification in being able to recommend this volume to all lovers of pure, undefiled, and experimental religion, to whatever sect or party they may belong. We have read the Work with pleasure and profit, and trust that many others will follow our example and derive equal benefit with ourselves from its perusal."-Congregational Magazine.
"In the work which has occasioned these reflections, we consider the author to have been most happy, both in the selection and treatment of his subject. Instead of presenting our readers with the contents of the twenty-five chapters into which this excellent volume is divided, we shall endeavour to excite their desire to obtain the work itself."--Baptist Magazine.
“This work is written in a very devout spirit, and will be read with edification by persons of a spiritual mind."-Wesleyan-Methodist Magazine.

WINTER LECTURES ;
« They are fine specimens of pulpit instruction. Their arguments cannot fail to convince the judgment, nor their eloquence to warm the heart."--New Monthly Magazine.
« The subjects are ably discussed, and instructively illustrated. They discover a sound jndgment, considerable research, and much good taste."Baptist Magazine.
"This volume is distinguished by a character of deep and patient research, and by an extraordinary force, both of sentiment and style."-Evangelical Magazine.
- The Lecturer, by his language and ideas, diffuses a portion of vigour through what he advances, which imparts its elevation to the reader's thoughts. We are able, most conscientiously, to recommend the work, being fully convinced that every reader will bear testimony to its intrinsic excellence."Imperial Magazine.

THE DISPUTED QUESTIONS OF THE TIMES : In Three Lectures, on the Doctrine of Sacramental Efficacy, the Claim
of Apostolical Succession, and the Union of Church and State. “We are bound to state that he writes in a subdued and thoughtful spirit; * * * and far surpasses any pamphlet on the same side which has proceeded from Churchmen." -- British Critic
“I cannot recommend too strongly Mr. Ely's admirable pamphlet on Apostolical Succession, the Sacraments, and Union of Church and State; which is a compendium of the arguments against the sentiments of the Oxford Tracts."Rev. John A. James's Christian Fellowship.
" Evangelical sentiment, sound argument, and Christian courtesy pervade these Lectures." --Baptist Magazine.
“ The respected author of these three Lectures has done noble service to the Church of Christ, by the calm and dignified, but yet successful manner in which he has disposed of the Oxford Tract-Men, or rather of their more than simi-popish notions.
« The logic of his Appeal' is equal to all its other qualities; and both Sacramental Efficacy' and Apostolic Succession' have come out of his iron grasp feeble, and helpless, and ready to die. Let but the people read this
Tract for the Times and the Oxford divines may save themselves the trouble of fulminating any more of their popish bulls." --Evangelical Magazine.
“Mr. Ely ably refutes these several claims of the Church."-Sun.
