12.— A View of Congregationalism, its Principles and Doctrines,

the Testimony of Ecclesiastical History in its favor, its practice and its advantages. By George Punchard, Author of the History of Congregationalism, with an Introductory Essay, by R. Š. Storrs, D. D. Second Edition, revised and enlarged. Andover: Allen, Morrill, & Wardwell. New-York: Mark H. Newman. 1814. pp. 331.

We have received this work in season to say but a word respecting it, and inform our readers of its publication. We deem it to be of great value to the members of the Congregational Church, and it will, doubtless, tend to strengthen the strong feeling of attachment to the forms of their fathers, which has been recently revived among the sons and daughters of New England.

Whatever the forni of government, whilst it recognizes the parity of the ministry, and does not interfere with the spirituality and simplicity of the Gospel, we bid it God speed. Oh, that all our forms were more alive with the beauty and excel. lency of God's truth.

13.-Profit and Honor ; or, Illustrations of Humble Life. By

Mrs. Copley. New-York: M. W. Dodd. 1843. pp. 263.

Mrs. Copley (late Mrs. Hewlett) is well known and much admired as an authoress, on both sides of the Atlantic. Her Cottage Comforts,' has had an unusually large circulation; and we anticipate for Profit and Honor' no very limited sale. It is unquestionably an admirable book, and will serve an excellent purpose in families. Let it be presented to our domestics, with proper feelings of regard for them, and a manifested design to promote their happiness, and it will be thankfully received, and probably tend much to secure peace, quietness, and comfort.

It dwells on such topics as the following, in an interesting style : Advantages of Domestic Service – The Happy ServantMaid-Fidelity in Servants-The Servant worth keeping at any price-Bad effects of Sloth-Connexion with ChildrenThe Prudent Washerwoman-Sabbath Privileges-A Grateful Servant, etc. etc. etc. 14.Uncle Barnaby ; or Recollections of his Character and

Opinions. New York : M. W. Dodd. 1844. pp. 316.

This Uncle Barnaby, whoever he was, was evidently a clever old gentleman, entertaining to his young friends, and ever


inculcating sound, wholesome sentiments. His character, as
set forth in the volume, is one worthy of imitation. His opin-
ions are wholesome in their tendency. As designed for the
entertainment and instruction of the young, the book is wor.
thy of all commendation. It cannot be read without interest
and profit. There are remarks on such topics as the follow-
ing: 'I cannot afford it'--'Do it, and it will be done'-'It's
of no use to try'—'I dont care,' 'It will be all one a hun-
dred years hence, etc. etc.
15.—Notes, Explanatory and Practical, on the Epistle to the He-

brews. By Albert Barnes. New York: Harper & Brothers.


335. We have but just now received this volume from the publishers. It is not too late, however, to notice it and recommend it to the attention of those who love the study of God's word. It is in the style and after the manner of Mr. Barnes's other commentaries on different parts of the New Testament, and especially adapted to the wants of Sabbath School Teachers. An Introduction presents a

very condensed and lucid view of the following topics: “ To whom was the Epistle written?”—“Its anthor”—“ The time when written”“The language in which it was written"-" The design and general argument of the Epistle"--and the body of the work is a plain, sound commentary on all the parts and phrases of the Epistle. We notice some errors in the printing, which should be corrected in subsequent editions. We specify only two. P. 27, I. 3, proved for purged; p. 39, l. 11, p. vol. as omitted, etc.

16.Letters from Ireland, MDCCCXXXVII. By Charlotte

Elizabeth. New-York: John S. Taylor & Co. 1843. pp. 351.

These letters have been before the public for some time, but are appropriately offered again, as a suitable book for the Holidays. To those who desire to know the manners and customs of Irish society in its different classes, and to read some vivid descriptions of scenery, the volume will afford the means. There will, also, be found in the work many important reflections and suggestions on the present state of the Irish population, as well Romanist as Protestant. The gifted authoress possesses a good judgment, fine sentiment, and a benevolent heart.

pp. 321.

17.-Floral Biography; or, Chapters on Flowers. By Charlotte

Elizabeth. Fourth American, from the second London edi. tion. New-York: John S. Taylor & Co. 1843.

It is scarcely necessary to say more of this volume, than that it can now be had in a neat style of publication. It has found its way into very many families with a welcome, and will, doubtless, adorn the libraries or centre-tables of many


ADDITIONAL NOTICES, Original Poems for Infant Minds. By the Taylor Family. From

the twelfth London edition. New-York : Saxton & Miles. Boston: Saxton, Peirce & Co. 1843. pp. 174.

These poems have already been published by the same house, in 'The Works of Jane Taylor.' They are now collected in a small, convenient volume, for the daily use of mothers and children. Sartor Resartus ; the Life and Opinions of Herr Teufelsdröckh.

In three books. By Thomas Carlyle. New-York: Saxton & Miles. Phil.: J. M. Campbell & Co. 1844. pp. 130.

This is a cheap edition of a very popular work of a very popular writer, sold for two shillings. The Silk Question Settled. The Testimony of one hundred and

fifty Witnesses. Report of the Proceedings of the National Convention of Silk Growers and Silk Manufacturers, held in New-York, Oct. 13th and 14th, 1843. New-York : Saxton & Miles.

This is a pamphlet of eighty closely printed pages, and contains a vast amount of valuable information in respect to the Silk Culture. Every one who has suitable soil and climate should read it.


Russia. The severe judgment passed against Professors Ulmann and Bunge in Dorpat, has been recalled by the Emperor. The former retains his place in the University; the latter has been appointed Burgomaster for Riga. Lieut. Ramstett has succeeded, by means of an electro-galvanic apparatus, in raising from the bottom of the sea very heavy metallic bodies.

Germany. Many valuable historical works have appeared ; among which Schlosser's History of the Eighteenth Century holds a very elevated rank. --Birch's History of Louis Philippe is also highly prized.— The new edition of the Conversations Lexicon' is exceedingly popular.

-A new critical work entitled “Geschichte der Philologie in Alterihum," has been issued at Bonn, which will of course attract the attention of the scholar.

ft:nce. A work entitled Essai sur la formation du dogma Catholique,” by a layman, is exciting much attention.- A valuable Supplement to the Dictionary of the French Academy, has been issued, supplying a want long telt.-Prof. Ranke has been pursuing his historical labors in Paris,

Great frítain. “ The Hellenistic Greek Testament” has recently been published in London. Its design is to point out the intimate connection between the Septuagint and Greek New Testament. There are over 30,000 illustrations, doctrinal and grammatical, arranged appropriately under the several verses.

elnited States. NEW WORK ON THE PRIMITIVE Churco.--Gould, Kendall & Lincoln of Boston, have in press, and will publish in a few weeks, an important work, by the Rev. Lyman Coleman, entitled, “ The Primitive Church popular in its government, and simple in its Rites.” It will be embraced in a duodecimo volume, and will be sold for about a dollar. The author resided, during the last year, a number of months in Berlin, and completed his previous preparations for the undertaking, under the eye, and with the countenance, of Dr. Neander. The celebrated church historian has prepared an Introduction for the book, in which he gives sanction to the general principles and facts on which Mr. Coleman relies. The time embraced in the principal part of the discussion is the period immediately snbsequent to the Apostles. Every important statement is fortified by the best authorities, which the library of the university of Berlin could afford. We cannot but rejoice that a work so timely is coming out under such favorable auspices.-We also take great pleasure in announcing that W. W. Turner, teacher of Hebrew in the Union Theological Seminary of New York, promises to complete the invaluable HEBREW and CHALDEE CONCORDANCE, commenced by Prof. Nordheimer and himself, but discontinued, on the decease of the former. The publishers, however, do not feel warranted in proceeding with so heavy a work until five hundred bona fide subscribers shall have been obtained. It will be published in four parts, at $3 each, or $12 for the whole.

The basis of this Concordance will be that of Dr. Julius Fürst of Leipsic; but, we feel fully assured, will be improved in the hands of Mr. Turner, especially as he is perfectly familiar with the plan of execution projected by Prof. Nordheimer.
