The POOR MAN'S EVENING PORTION; being a Seleetion of a Verse of Scripture, with Short Observations, for every Day in the Year; intended for the Use of the Poor in Spirit, who are Rich in Faith, and Heirs of the Kingdom. By Robert HAWKER, D.D. Vicar of Charles, Plymouth. Sixth Edition, corrected by the Author. 12mo. 5s. bds.

“ This volume is an exact counterpart to the Doctor's · Morning Portion,' and will be highly acceptable to the numerous admirers of his writings."

DAILY BREAD; or Meditations, Practical and Experimental, for every Day in the Year, by more than One Hundred eminent and popular Ministers of the last half century, and a few other writers, The whole adapted either for the Family or Closet, and containing the Outline of Three Hundred and Sixty-Six Discourses. T. WILLIAMS, Editor. Second Edition, 7s.6d, bds., 8s. bound.

A large portion of these selections is original, the MSS. having been furnished either by the authors, or by individuals accustomed to follow ministers with the pen. Economy both of time and price has been consulted, and, altogether, Mr. W. has produced a work eminently deserving the patronage of the religious public.”

Congreg. Mag. “ Among the Names affixed to these Meditations, we observe those of Cecil, Fuller, Pearce, Swaine, Moody, Medley, Dr. Simpson, Hitchin, Shrubsole, Lambert, (all deceased ;) and among living preachers, Drs. Ryland, Bogue, and Mason; Messrs. Jay, Parsons, Burder, Cockin, Griffin, &c. &c. From these preachers it is not unreasonable to expect a production of considerable merit, and such as may be acceptable to pious persons in various ways.--In whatever way this volume may be used, we trust that it will promote the edification of the serious reader; and with that wish, and that expectation, we cordially recommend it.”

Evan. Mag.

REFLECTIONS on the WORD of GOD, for every Day in the Year. By the late Rev. WILLIAM WARD, Missionary at Serampore. 12mo. with a fine Portrait, 6s. 6d, bds., 7s. bound.

“ The plan of the work is sufficiently simple. For every day in the year a text is selected, upon which the author makes such reflections as its subject suggests to him. They are short; con. sisting generally of one, two or three pages of a small octavo volume; so that those persons (and we should hope there are many such) who are disposed to devote a portion of each day to the consideration of sacred subjects, would find this book a convenient manual, which would lead them gradually into a very extensive field of religious inquiry. Sometimes the judicious reader will meet with hints which he may improve, and sometimes with positions which he may be inclined to dispute. But he will find every where indications of a mind thoroughly devoted to the great object of diffusing religious instruction, of enlightening the ignorant, awakening the thoughtless, reclaiming the wicked, improving the good."- Quarterly Theological Review, No. 5.

“ This volume was produced by the Author in his voyage to England, in 1819. The sentiments are those of truth and soberness, conveyed with much devotion of spirit, and in simplicity of language.”

The CONVERSION of the WORLD; or the Claims of Six Hundred Millions of Heathen, and the ability and duty of the Churches respecting them. By the Rev. GORDON HALL and SAMUEL NEWELL, American Missionaries at Bombay. 12mo. ls. 60, sewed.

“ This is a tract of no common interest, whether we consider the quarter from which it comes, or the proposal it contains.... Though written for America, it applies almost equally to every Christian country.”Evan, Mag.

“ This is a Missionary Panorama-a stinging, stirring pamphlet, which will do more good than many a fashionable quarto. We most earnestly recommend the perusal of it to all our readers.". Baptist Mag.

“ This book has passed through several editions in America. We must confess we have derived great information and entertainment from the perusal of it; and think we may safely recommend it as an excellent work of reference, for an account of the many different sects and persuasions to be found in the world. We have carefully examined those articles that have reference to the most important controversies, and differences of opinion among believers; and we must say, they seem to us to be drawn up with great impartiality and correctness; and the work is certainly valuable in admitting the representations of sectarists themselves.--We cannot conclude without again expressing how much satisfaction we have derived from the perusal of this yolume, which contains more than we could have expected to find in it.'

British Critic, Vol. XXVII. p. 437. “The copious title of this publication will afford our readers a general idea of the nature of the work: they will be led to form an expectation of much useful matter, and they will not be disappointed.”- Evan. Mag.

“ This work is written with no ordinary degree of ability; it evinces much labour as well as skill, and has rarely, if ever, been surpassed in candour and impartiality."--Evan. Register.

“In perusing a number of leading articles contained in the work before us, we have observed that they have no tendency to lower the standard of Religious truth; nor consequently to confound matters of faith with those of opinion. The Essay on Truth, by the late Rev. A. Fuller, greatly enhances its value. The Appendix, containing' A brief Sketch of the State of Religion throughout the World,' forms a highly interesting part of the volume.”—Methodist Mag.

“ T'he Editor has taken much pains to improve the work by corrections and additions; the numerous references to authorities are highly valua. ble.”-Bapt. Mag.

“ These excellent discourses are so well known, and have been so highly esteemed, that it will be sufficient barely to announce their republication, Though many persons have written on the subject, none have treated it in a more easy and familiar manner than Dr.J.

“On the various attempts which have been made in modern times to subvert Christianity, and to bring Revelation into contempt, Mr. Piggott makes many spirited observations ; and the survey which he takes of the subject is at once comprehensive and just; its language is clear, and its arguments convincing: of its practical tendency no doubt can be entertained. We consider its merits to be highly respectable, and, as such, wish it an extensive circulation."--Imperial Magazine, No.69.

The size of the book agrees with Dr. Rippon's.”- Evan. Mag.

“ The Tunes, (in number 347) are intended for Public Worship as well as private use: such is the design of the publication. The execution, as we are informed by a competent judge of Musical Science, is, on the whole, judicious and respecta. ble. In the Compiler's introductory observations on the proper style of Sacred Music, and especially of that intended for Congregational use, we en. tirely concur.-Methodist Mug.

PSALMO-DOXOLOGIA; a new and Complete Collection of Psalm and Hymn Tunes. The whole set for three or four Voices, with an Accompaniment (in small Notes) for the Organ or Piano-Forte, and adapted as well to public Worship as private Use. 12s. bound, or in twelve half-bound Numbers, ls, each.

Psalmo-Doxologia is a collection of between three and four hundred Psalm Tunes and Hymns, containing all the established old melodies, and a great many new ones; including several of the best and most popular Airs of Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Pleyel, Beethoven, &c. &c., arranged for either ihree or four voices, with an Accompaniment for the Organ, in small notes, instead of a figured bass. This is the most copious collection that we have ever seen for the price, and musically speak. ing, is better executed than works of this kind generally are. The introduction of the delightful airs of the great German composers must relieve congregations from the fatiguing reiteration of the old tunes, which, though certainly excellent in themselves, become, like any other good thing, extremely dull if too often repeated, and unless relieved by a mixture of novelty. A slight biographical sketch of each composer, and a brief history of Psalmody, are prefixed to the collection. The former is in some few instances erroneous, but it gives a considerable share of interest to the work.”- Harmonicon, No. 7, July 1823.

“ We consider this as the most complete volume of valuable Tunes for Public Worship that has ever come under our Notice."

Home Mission. Mag. “ This work contains 347 Tunes, in 282 pages; besides a brief Introduction to Psalmody, and a biographical Index of the Authors; including Arne, Arnold, Bach, Beethoven, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Playel, &c. besides the Authors of the

To which is prefixed, a brief Introduction to Psalmody, and a complete Index. 75. 6d. half-bound.

The present proprietors of this work have employed a competent Editor to reduce the three volumes into one. Many of the Plates have been re-engraved ; the Tunes which originally belonged to the first volume have (with some few exceptions) been restored, and the most popular and useful Tunes in the second volume added, with a few from the third; comprising now 270 Choice Tunes, with a brief Introduction to Psalmody prefixed.
