Second Edition, in One Vol. post 8vo, 3s. 6d. cloth. A DISSERTATION ON CHURCH POLITY,

BY ANDREW COVENTRY DICK, Esq., ADVOCATE. Quotations can give no true idea of the character of this work, or of the power of the author ; those who would appreciate either must procure the book."-Spectator.

* Mr. Dick has brought the distinctness, clearness, and fulness of the lawyer to the dix cussion of his theme. It is an able book, and, with some slight shades of exception, a boca eminently to our mind. We commend it earnestly to all who wish an intelligent guide 1 help them in dealing with the vexed questions of Church Polity." —British Quarterly Reries

The re-publication of this powerful treatise, which has been out of print for several years is a source of no ordinary satisfaction to us; and we congratulate our readers on its becomit. thus accessible to them, in a neat form, and at a low price. Quotations do injustice to a dissc: tation so strikingly marked by coherence and completeness. We have a sense ci the worth of Mr. Dick's dissertation for which we have not even now found adequate expres sion: it is most philosophical in spirit-rigidly conclusive in its argument—learned and com prehensive-adequately discussing and determining this first question of Church Polity is all its bearings. "It should be in every vestry library, young men's institute, and book-club; and

especially in every Nonconformist family.' --Nonconformist.

* This work deals in a popular and most practical way with the 'abstract view of te question : and as a connected argument is unanswerable. Every side of the subject is a turn exhibited and examined ; and the necessity of certain things which appear most anota lous in connexion with a State Church, is shown with a delicate irony which must draws smile, even from one who cannot afford to be convinced. .. . . It may be regarded as a standard book by Dissenters.'-Christian Spectator.

THE

ECLECTIC REVIEW.

JUNE, 1855.

• 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.

Clarke's Patent Fusee Candle Cooking Lamp

This is an invention which answers the purpose of a cooking utensil, a looking-glass, and a lamp. It can furnish a dinner in one hour, and can be carried from place to place with the greatest ease, it being only five inches broad, and twelve inches high. We strongly recommend it to military men and travellers in general, and beg to refer them to the article itself for parti. culars, which, for portability and usefulness, is superior to say. thing we have yet seen.-Civil Service Gazette, April 1.

The Soldier's Comforts. To military and naval men it must prove invaluable ; with it and a day's rations, a man can laugh at the word 'privation; and in the stillness of the night he has at hand a real domestác friend-not only a powerful light, but one which will add me terially to the warmth of his tent or room in cold weatherand during a summer campaign what time and trouble it must save, in not having to forage for fuel and fire to cook the required food.- United Service Gazette, April 7.

As a camp, or ship, or travelling ca

marade, it is above all price; for not merely will it cook a meal impromptu, but it will also supply a brilliant light for the student in his tent or in his cabin; nor is this all: there is a mirror attached to the lamp, by which a person can share and dress. The lamp opened, by closing the mirror, becomes a dark lantern, and the whole affair is so portable that it can be placed in the great-coat pocket. Need we say more than that the candle or fuel) is exceedingly economical, to render the Fusee Candle Cooking Lamp' a most acceptable boon to the Army and Navy, and ali whose vocation may lead them to travel ? – Naval and Military Gazette, April 7, 1855.

It has been remarked that the present war has produced a very large proportion of inventions for the destruction of human life, and we are glad to have it in our power to notice one with an opposite tendency, which is likely to contribute to the wellbeing and comfort of the Army-wě allude to a Candle Lamp, invented by Samuel Clarke, the completeness and efficacy of which we have had the opportunity of testing, and find it most admirably qualified for the various uses to which it may be applied. The light afforded for writing, or for the operations of the toilet, is most excellent; and he must be a sorry cam. paigner who could not, by the aid of these admirable Lamps, cook a very savoury mess. It is not only to the Army that this Lamp will be valuable, but it will also be found to add greatly to the comfort of the nursery and sick room, and to be highly useful to bachelors and emigrants.

British Army Dispatch, April 6, 1855.
