Rules and Exercises of Holy Living. In which are described the means and instruments of obtaining every virtue, and considerations serving to the resisting all temptations. Together with Prayers, containing the whole duty of a Christian, and the parts of Devotion fitted for all occasions, and furnished for all necessities. Second American, from the twenty-seventh London edition, by Jer. Taylor, D. D. Chaplain in ordinary to King Charles the first. The Rev. Thomas Thirlwall, M. A. editor. It makes a duodecimo volume of more than 300 pages at one dollar bound. "The subject is wholly practical, adapted to the use of Christians in general, and designed, with the blessing of God, to make them wiser, because it tends to make them better." "Simplicity and singleness of heart dictated the work, enriched at the same time with various and extensive erudition, and sparkling with the rays of a resplendent genius." "Whilst you will be occasionally charmed with a blaze of eloquence, which rouses the affections, you will not be dazzled with false meteors, which mislead the understandings. Though heaven is placed full in view, you are never lifted from the earth. the graces and excellencies are pointed out, to which the gospel enjoins you to aspire, but still no standard is prescribed, which divine assistance does not enable man to attain." "He who reads the pages of Andrews, Hall, Hooker, and Taylor, contemplates, in the religion of Christ, a matron recommending herself to the love and affection of mankind, by a venerable gravity tempered with ineffable sweetness, by a zeal, though fervent, yet subject to the control of a discriminating judgement, and a piety warm from the heart, but never betrayed into mystical illusions and extravagant conceits. They were men who qualified themselves for their sacred office by various and extensive erudition, laborious study and patient research." Defence of Infant Baptism. Being Conversations on Infant Baptism, and some popular objections against the Church of the United Kingdom. By Charles Jerram, A. M. Vicar of Cobham, Surrey. Price 75 cents boards, 50 cents stitched.

Essays on some of the select parts of the Liturgy of the Church of England. Being the substance of a course of Lectures, delivered in the parish Church of St. Werburgh, Bristol. By Thomas Biddulph, A. M. "Hold fast the form of sound words." "These essays were made the subject of a detailed, critical discussion by the British Critic soon after their original publication, and their merits received a very honourable testimony from that Review. Such, however, is the importance of their object, and the ability with which that object is pursued by their author, that we are anxious to introduce and recommend them to those of our readers, who may not be already acquainted with them. The doctrines of Christianity are so universally diffused through the whole services of our Church, and so inextricably interwoven with the whole of their texture, that a competent discussion of only those portions which are in daily use, would comprise all the truths which are important to be believed, and a delineation of almost every duty which belongs to the system of Christian morality; and would exemplify the nature and requisities of devotion, in all its branches of petition, confession, deprecation, praise and thanksgiving. In short, it would afford an opportunity of saying almost every thing which a minister of the gospel ought to teach, and which a hearer of the gospel ought to learn. But for the sake of requisite brevity, we must forbear the further prosecution of this subject. It is, we confess, a favourite one with us, and we feel inclined to prolong the discussion; but we are aware that the persons, for whose consideration the foregoing remarks are particularly intended, are abundantly able to pursue the subject which we have thus briefly suggested; and that if it be considered with the attention it demands, they will need no aid to enable them to discern the expedience of the measure have recommended, and no persuasion to dispose them to adopt it."
An Engraving, representing at one view the compara tive heights of the principal Mountains, &c. in the world. Copied from Smith's latest London edition, with corrections, and upwards of one hundred additions. In this last edition are given the heights of the Himalaya Mountains in Asia, recently ascertained to be the highest in the world; and in addition will be introduced, the principal Mountains in North America, viz. the White Mountains in New-Hampshire, the Peaks of Otter, the Alleghany, Monadnock, &c. &c. The limits of perpetual snow, of vegetation, &c. &c. under different latitudes, will also be seen at one glance of the eye; and the engraving gives at one view more correct geographical information respecting the mountains of the world than could be conveyed by a long and laboured description.-As a picture it is handsome, deserving a place among the ornaments of the parlour or the library. To the geographer, the botanist, the mineralogist, to the general
scholar and to the traveller, it will be most pleasing and important.
