By a Clergyman of the Presbyterian Church in England.

“Here, then, is a gentleman who has both read and thought. Chevalier Bunson, Drs. Wardlaw and Davidson, Messrs. Fletcher, Barnes, and Smythe, of the present day, together with the bulk of the best advocates of the several systems, figure in these pages. He discusses with elaboration the questions of Church Polity, Church Power, the People, the Ruling Elder, Courts of Review; concluding with a series of remarks on the foregoing evidence in Courts of Review. Independency and Episcopacy have met with a very earnest antagonist; shrewd and penetrating.” - British Banner.

The author makes some excellent remarks on Presbyterianism."Watchman.

“A glance at the ample table of contents shows the great extent of ground over which the author's research has reached, and the thorough acquaintance he has with his subject. All the leading arguments on the questiones vexatæ of Church Government are stated, and the superiority of Presbytery over Prelacy and Independency sufficiently demonstrated. We commend the treatise as containing a great amount of valuable information and able argument on the question of Church Polity.”—English Presbyterian Messenger.

It is, in all respects, a very remarkable work-a work alike seasonable and valuable, and indicative of literary powers and theological acquirements of no common order. We cordially recommend it to all our friends. We know not, in fact, where they will find a work which, in so small a compass, will give them so much instructive information on a subject which has been hitherto greatly overlooked, and the vital importance of which is becoming every day more and more developed-we mean that of Church Polity."-Londonderry Standard.
