leave off concern for his soul, but his soul will not leave him. He cannot fly from it for a single moment; it is an inseparable and imperishable part of his being, and whether he wills it or not, it will cling to him in timeit will cleave to him in eternity. O my soul, let all thy hopes rest upon the “Rock of Ages." Look up unto the hills from whence cometh thine aid. A geological writer states, that when he stood upon the broad flat of the granite mountain, Ben Mac Dhu, that it was with no feeling of merely vain complacency he felt himself to be the highest subject of all the twenty-six or twenty-seven millions inhabiting the British islands, and, at the same time, the lowest, too, as to its stony formation.
The feeling may be transferred to those whose feet have been planted by the Spirit of His grace upon the “ Rock of Ages.” They are at once the highest and the lowliest among all the terrestrial sons and daughters of the Lord Almighty; and they shall one day raise their heads amid the powers and principalities of that bright world where God and the Lamb have their everlasting dwelling. “They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more ; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb, which is in the midst of the throne, shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters; and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.” Rev. vii. 16, 17.

OF WOLVERHAMPTON. “Whatever department of the wide field we traverse in company with our Author, we find his converse at once instructive and agreeable. Combining profit and delight, he does not dwell unduly on any one part of his subject; but presents before us, in succession, the most striking points of the argument-flashing upon them the lights of a playful fancy, and presenting the whole in the garb of an attractive and graceful diction. The volume is eminently readable, and will, we doubt not, materially contribute to the reputation of the Author. Although but a young minister, he has already proved himself highly competent to the production of works of permanent utility, and has given great promise of future eminence. We have not a doubt that this present publication will receive, as it deserves, a very extensive circulation."-Banner of Ulster.
“We have perused it with much pleasure, and conceive it one of the best works upon the subject extant in our language. Should the Author's life be spared, we fully expect him to take a high rank in the world of literature.”—Protestant Watchman.
“ It records all that is important to know of the Founder of the Order of the Jesuits--of their moral code-of their history in Europe generally and in England in particular—and of their suppressions throughout dif. ferent nations. The story is well told and wisely applied.”—The Protestant World.
“ Altogether one of the best compendiums on the subject which we have seen.”—Wesleyan Magazine.
