quests, given to the public, and have met with an extensive circulațion. Their spirit is truly evangelical, the style simple, and manner affectionate. They cannot fail to be useful. Christians constantly need to have their minds directed to the contemplation of the truths here discussed.

Sacra Privata. The Private Meditations, Devotions and Prayers of the Rt. Rev. T. Wilson, D. D., Bishop of Sodor and Man,

with a Preface by J. H. Newman, B. D. New-York: D. Appleton & Co. 1841. pp. 338.

This is a beautiful specimen of typography; indeed it is in the best style of the publishers. The contents are worthy of the dress in which they appear. Bishop Wilson was an eminent Christian. His Meditations and Prayers breathe an excellent spirit.

ARTICLE XIII.

RECENT LITERARY INTELLIGENCE.

Great Britain. The Eclectic Review, Jan. 1841, contains a long article on " London University and the Colleges connected with it," from which the following statements are taken. This university commenced its operations in 1838. Several colleges have been allowed by the government to send students to it to complete their course. These are University and King's College, London ; Bristol College; Oscot College (Roman Catholic); St. Cuih bert's College (Roman Catholic), Ushaw; Manchester College (formerly York, Unilarian); Homerton College; Highbury College; Spring Hill College, Birmingham. The three last are connected with the Congregationalists. University College takes the lead; it is open to all classes, but chiefly sustained by Dissenters. The number of students is rapidly in. creasing

No one can be admitted to the degree of B. A. in London University, " within two years of his matriculation examination;" nor without a cer. tificate of two years study and good conduct at one of the affiliated instilutions. The fee for this degree is £10. The examination is conducted by printed papers; but the examiners may put questions on the written ana swers when they require explanation. The writer in the Eclectic thinks that those who have passed this examination would have no difficulty in obtaining a like degree at Oxford or Cambridge. He observes, however, very correctly, that the quantity demanded in the principal deparıments is by no means excessive. French and German, animal physiology, vege. table physiology and structural botany are among the prescribed studies.

The University has nothing to do with theology; it has power to give degrees only in arts, law and medicine. Still it has introduced a voluntary examination in the Hebrew of the 0. T., the Greek of the N. T., the evi. dences of Christianity and Scripture history; awarding certificates of proficiency. None bui bachelors of arts are admitted to this examination.

Dr. John Pye Smith bas entered on the 41st year of his connection with Homerion Seminary. He has recently published the second edition of his Scripture and Geology.

Among the more recent publications are Ancient Christianity, No. 6., containing a Sketch of the Demonolatry of the Church in the fourth cenTury; Analysis of the Bible, with reference to the Social Duty of Man, by R. Monigomery Martin; The Bible Monopoly inconsistent with Bible Circulation, a Letter to Lord Bexley, by Dr. Adam Thomson; Pictorial History of Palestine, Part xvII. ; Lisco's Parables, translated by Rev. P. Fairbairn; Memoir of Dr. Payson, in Ward's Standard Library Treauise on the Lord's Supper, by Daniel Bagot, B. D. ; Historical Sketch of Protestant Church of France, by Rev.J. G. Lorimer; Fisher's Historic Illustrations of the Bible, Divisionill

France. The Bible-A New Translation, by S. Cahen, is the title of a work in progress at Paris. Vol. X has already appeared, containing a translation of Jeremiah. The Revue Critique comiends it in the following terms: “Never, perhaps, has the poetry of the sacred volume been rendered with so much force;"'" the translator seeks to bring the French as pear as possible to the Hebrew." The volume contains the Preface of Abrabanel to Jeremiah, Dahler's Historical Introduction to the same, and some new observations on the Jewish Calendar. A new periodical-Revue Théologique-has been commenced, edited by two of the professors at Mon. lauban Theological Seminary. It will undoubtedly be well conducied and useful.

Switzerland. The School of Theology had its opening sitting at Geneva, Oct. 1, 1840. Seven new students were admitted; the whole No. was 36.' Prof. Gaussen has just published Theopneusiia, or the Plenary Inspiration of the Holy Scriptures. It is regarded in France and Switzerland as an able vindication of the Orthodox belief.

United States. Wm_Radde, German bookseller in New-York, will soon publish ThoJuck's Hours of Christian Devotion, both in English and German.-Gould, Newman and Saxton will issue, in a few weeks, a work on the Antiquities of the Christian Church, abridged from Augusti, with compilations from Rheinwald, Gieseler, etc. by Rev. Lyman Coleman. It will comprise a history of our own sacred seasons-fast and thanksgiving-by Rev. J. B. Felt; and a short account of the rites of the Armenian Church by Rev. Mr. Dwight, Miss. at Constantinople.-Dr. Grant, Missionary to Persia, will soon publish his " Nestorians” or the Lost Tribes--the prominent object of the book is to prove that the Nestorians are the descendants of the ten lost tribes of Israel. The work is looked for with interest.
