delayed as it has been, in consequence of a fire at my printer's, which consumed three thousand copies of this work.

Adopting instrumental music myself, some of the hymns will be found to turn on this principle. I have no wish to press the subject on others. But there is one point which I cannot consent to overlook. - 'Under the former dispensation, the Levites and the congregation stood up to praise the Lord. I cannot think that we owe less reverence to the great object of our thanksgivings under this s ministration of life," than they felt under " the ministration of death.” Singing is an act of worship; but sitting is not a posture of worship. In heaven, prostration is used; surely on earth, less than rising cannot be deemed due reverence.
