While the volume sweeps an ample circuit, it comprises matters of the first ortance. Everything is complete in itself. Mr. O'Neil has, in fact, fixed on a subject, then he has whistled around him men of the first mark from every section of the church iod to discuss it.

THE NATIONAL REVIEW.

On the 30th June, 1855, it is intended to publish the First Number of "THE NATIONAL REVIEW," a new QUARTERLY JOURNAL of GENERAL LITERATURE, Politics, and Social and Religious Philosophy.

In originating such a Periodical the Conductors believe that they will supply a want long recognised, and every day more urgently felt by thousands of their thoughtful countrymen, who are unable to identify themselves with any one of the acknowledged parties in Church or State. It appears to us that there is no party, ecclesiastical or political, that is not manifestly embarrassed rather than sustained by its own watchwords and traditions. The established and conventional formulas of thought are confessedly inadequate to express the actual convictions of the time; and, though often liberally interpreted or questionably stfetched to embrace the new conditions, this very accommodation virtually surrenders their essential life, and confesses the presence of younger energies and aspirations, which claim independent and original expression.

The effects of this have naturally been unfavourable to periodical literature. We are far from denying the excellent tone, taste, and temper, the great information, the high and available literary talent which characterize many of our leading periodicals: but we believe they suffer from the state of the parties of which they are the organs—they are marked by a want of steady adherence to ascertained principle, of coherent and strict deductions, of defined and searching discussion.

On religious subjects especially we think it painfully evident, that there is not at present in this country any adequate organ for
