Ellis, Author of ‘Polynesian Researches,' &c. &c. * These Lectures are remarkable for their simple and explanatory character : and they seem to us to be more suitable to the mass of readers who need to be taught what Popery is, and by what arguments it can be confuted, than any of the countless publications with which the press is now teeming. We commend them to readers of every grade.'-Eclectic Review.

Second and Enlarged Edition of Discourses on Important Subjects.' By Rev. Dr.

FERGUSON. * Were we to assign a place among preachers and theological writers to Dr. Ferguson, we should place him between Chalmers and Robert Hall. Infinitely more varied than the former, and with a far deeper insight into metaphysical truth than the latter, he has less of that torrent-like eloquence which distinguished Chalmers, and less of that laboured and polished elegance which characterized the discourses of Hall.

'It is of greatest concernment in the Church and Commonwealth to have a vigilant eye how books demean themselves as well as men, and thereafter to confine, imprison, and do sharpest justice on them as malefactors; for books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them to be as active as that soul was whose progeny they are.' - Milton.
