'* This is a rcry seasonable, judicious, and temperate exposure of the extravagant claims recently put forward, on behalf of the church, by the Pusey party, in what are calfeo the Oxford Tract *.'*—Liverpool Timet.

** It la due to Mr. Ely to say that he treats his subjects with great earnestness, eloquence, and ability.—BrutiJ Mercury.

"The reverend author has expended upon each of them a good deal of pains, and displayed a considerable degree of power."—Liverpool Courier.

** All these subjects are treated iu a masterly style. We take the chief characteristic to be, the caution of Mr. Ely, in giving only the most fair views of the opinions he combats. He is studious to avoid the smallest appearance of misrepresentation, in his statement of the doctrines of his opponents, or of uncharitnbleness In the position in which he places.them; in his remarks, he is decided and uncompromising, though free from asperity; while in his arguments, he honourably avoids that system of special pleading which he has frequent occasion to point out in the passages selected from the authors whom he controverts. Though we find in Mr. Ely's writings the bold and uncompromising character of the advocate of the truth, we also recognise with pleasure the marked traces of the good feeling, candour, and amiability of the man."—Sheffield Independent.

"The Rev. J. Ely has done himself and the denomination to which he belongs, honour by the manly, temperate, and Christian manner in which he has discussed this Question. The three Lectures are creditable both to the head and heart of the Writer. We wish we could do justice to this work."—Congregational Magazine.

Third Edition. 8vo., pp. 44, Price Is. DISSENT VINDICATED, With a particular Reference to the Question of National Religious Establishments. A Discourse delivered at the Ordination of the Rev. Julius Mark, at Chelmsford, May 25th, 1837.

"We have not seen a more luminous, more scriptural, or more satisfactory statement of the grounds on which Dissenters vindicate their separation from the Established Church, than is contained in this Sermon:—a statement too so calm, gentlemanly, and Christian in its tone and spirit, that the most fastidious Churchman could not complain of it. The argument is close, pointed, and in our view irresistible."—Leeds Mercury.

** The author writes with mildness and dignity, and scorns to resort to vulgar abuse, where nothing but calm argument is worthy of a triumph. Churchmen will, indeed, differ from the author; but those of them who are devout and eaudid will be compelled to pay deference to Mr. E.'s understanding and heart. To Dissenters who wish to understand their professed principles, and to Churchmen who really desire to know what enlightened Nonconformists hold on the subject of Church Establishments, we would cordially recommend this masterly summary of Dissenting principles."—Evangelical Magazine.

"This ii a work of distinguished talent and of eminently correct principles; exhibiting, In a catechetical form, a most interesting and comprehensive sketch of history, from the earliest periods down to the present moment.—We know not who may be its author; nut he bids fair to rival most other writers in the same department. His arrangements are most lucid, his selections are singularly Judicious, and the deference paid by him to revealed religion, and to the great principles of the Christian faith, is alike creditable to bis judgment and to his heart. To public schools, academies in general, and private families, we beg earnestly to recommend this able and judicious compendium."—Evangelical Magazine.

"The two former works of this anonymous author reflect great credit upon his piety, research, and judgment; and the volume now before us, which is supplemental to the others, will not detract from his well-earned praise. It is

a very comprehensive and useful compilation; and while it will be consulted with great advantage by the general reader, it will be particularly useful to the Christian student, for the view which it gives of Scripture C' of the various Missionary stations in heathen and Mahometan c

"Very great labour must have been bestowed upon the work: from the examination we have given it, we think highly of its accuracy. One considerable section is devoted to Religious Geograpny, and describes the religions of the different nations of the earth, and the stations and success of Christian Missions."—Leeds Mercury.

"This work is well calculated to answer the purpose it has in view; tto ftirnish a compendium of ancient and modern geographical knowledge, and a history of the progress of geographical science.' We should think it would be very well adapted to the higher classes in schools."—Congregational Magazine.

'' This work contains a large portion of important and well-digested information upon all topics connected both with ancient and modern Geography. The work will be found of the greatest service in all establishments for the young."—Kmngelical Magazine.

"This volume communicates that useful knowledge of which no one ought to be ignorant. On this account 'Geography in all Ages/ has a strong claim to recommendation, and by thus calling the public attention to its contents, we discharge an obligation under which the perusal has laid us."—Imperial Magazine.

THE PROVIDENCE OF GOD ILLUSTRATED.

By the Author of "History In All A&ks," &c.

"We subscribe most cordially to the general doctrines of this volume. The principles laid down are ably argued ana clearly illustrated. We know of Do work, which, within such narrow limits, condenses so many irrefragable proofs, that there is an unseen power constantly at work in the universe around us, as well as in the microcosm within us, * to shape our ends, rough-hew them as we will.' We strongly recommend to parents to familiarise the mmds of their children with the varied, amusing, ana instructive facts, gleaned from a thousand sources by the industry of the well-informed author of this clever little book. Not only are the minds of youth furnished with principles to enable them to study general history and passing politics with a religious discrimination ; but what constitutes its greatest excellence, is it* successful application of them to each individual reader, in promoting the all-important purposes of personal piety.

** As sincere friends to the diffusion of knowledge on Christian principles, we may also take this opportunity of referring to two other works from the same pen, which have been repeatedly advertised in our columns, and which form admirable companion-volumes to the above. We allude to "History in All Ages," and " Geography in All Ages." Each of these publications comprises a mass of valuable information, methodically and attractively arranged, exhibiting the world, both in its ancient and modern state, with the utmost accuracy and distinctness; and in each It has been an especial object of the author to render science subsidiary to the advancement or religion. Few books have fallen under our notice better adapted for schools or juvenile libraries, and we shall feel gratified if, at this season of literary presents, our recommendation contributes to give them additional circulation."—Watchman.

"This entertaining book is divided into twenty-four chapters. The first contains 'A Demonstration of Providence—its Mystery—Universality—Particular—Wonderful—its Connection with Prayer—its Protection—its Agencies— its Reference to Afflictions—subservient to the Conversion of the Soul—Retributive—its Relation to Sin—its Reference to Death.' The following chapters contain Narratives, snorter or longer, in illustration of all these particulars; and many of them will bear to be repeated a thousand times."—Baptist Magazine.

"Let us duly authenticate all our popular religious anecdotes; and then they will be of real value, for reproof, instruction and correction in righteousness. Of tiiis excellent kind are the majority in this book."—Christian Observer.

Preparing for the Press, Second Edition, beautifully Illustrated. THE NATURALIST'S POETICAL COMPANION,

WITH NOTES,
Selected by the Rkv. Edward Wilson, M.A., F.L.S.

"This Selection has cither been made with extraordinary taste and felicity, or else there is an evident inspiration in the works of Nature; for, as a volume of light and pleasing Poetry, we scarcely know of any which exceeds the one before us. To the latter cause we feel willing to ascribe its manifest excellence, although we must bear testimony to the judicious Notes of the editor, which considerably enhance the value of the Poems. A Hibernian friend at our elbow, compares the pages of this volume to an old-fashioned chintz curtain— tfull of birds and flowers meeting.' We cannot pass over the aim of the coLIectron without commendation, as we know of no publication more likely to awaken in young minds a keen relish for the wonders and beauties of creation; nor in those of more advanced years a volume better calculated to keep alive all the pure feelingB of the heart."—Literary Gazette.

"This is a pretty book and well-imagined. It shows extensive reading and good taste. All the best things which our bards have said of birds and flowers, are here gathered into a garland, and illustrated by useful Notes; nor are herbs and trees forgotten."—Atheturum.

** The volume before us is one filled to overflowing with a collection of the pleasing thoughts and kindly emotions which sentimental Naturalists have, from time to time, encircled around and associated with, certain and many of the innumerable objects of Nature. We wish the author of the compilation all success—he deserves it."—Magazine of Natural History.

A TREATISE ON THE NATURE, CAUSES, AND TREATMENT OF ERYSIPELAS; In which the Nature of several Diseases commonly thought to be distinct Complaints, as Erythema; Diffuse Inflammation of the Cellular Membrane; Puerperal Fever; Diffuse Inflammation of the Peritoneum, of the Pleura, of the Mucous Membranes, of the Arachnoid Membrane, of the Veins, and of the Lymphatics, is examined, and their identity with Erysipelas, usually so called, shewn.

By Thomas Nunneley,

Lecturer on Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathology, in the Leeds School of Medicine,
Surgeon to the General Eye and Ear Infirmary,
Honorary Secretary to the Philosophical and Literary Society, &c-

"The present work is perhaps the first attempt to treat the latter view of the disease (as a peculiar form and kind of inflammatory action not confined to the skin), on a comprehensive and systematic scale, and to enquire what are the just grounds afforded by observation and experience for taking this view. If the Author shall be in many respects unsuccessful in establishing the main object of his researches, still it cannot be denied that the learning and judgment with which he has investigated the subject, as well as the ingenuity with which he has iilustrated his various arguments, entitle his work to great attention, and recommend it most strongly to all those readers who take interest in the

Srogress of pathological science. .... It must be allowed, nevertheless, that [r. Nunneley has adduced a body of evidence which will enable readers to determine the question for themselves, guided as they must henceforth be by the views which he has promulgated. The Author has neglected no means by which his doctrine could be illustrated; and there is no doubt, if he has not proved it positively, he has invested it with a high degree of probability.

** To all classes of the Profession it is strongly recommended as containing the most ample and systematic view of the question, whether Rose is a peculiar
