goes forward with an enthusiasm in the truth as well as with an affectionate reverence for his subject. He is no partisan. He is free from sinister aims. His spirit is eminently candid. His words are sincere. He has the mind of an historian. The community will pay him a debt of gratitude for thus inaugurating the historic era of the Schools at Andover; and will insist that his honest pen continue what it has so worthily begun. He has had access which no other man has had, to sources of information invaluable for the historian of these Schools. He is daily conversant with such facts illustrating the intent and reach of the Phillipses and their compeers, as make their biography not so much a production of his mind, as a growth within it. The record of his impressions concerning them, will be an impartial memento of virtues, which posterity ought not to let die. ARTICLE VIII. THEOLOGICAL AND LITERARY INTELLIGENCE. Germany.

This volume commences with the Epistle to the Galatians, and closes with that to Philemon. Sacrifice: or Pardon and Purity through the Cross. By Newman Hall, B. A. The orthodox doctrine of the atonement is here expounded very clearly, in a moderate and judicious tone. The writer, of course, has not put the subject in any new light, nor illustrated it better than some others. False Worship. By the Rev. Dr. Maitland. 12mo. This is a most curious and ingenious book.
