buildings called churches belong exclu-
sively to church people, 249; the
church and dissent are spoken of as two

play, 184; speculations, in a religious
point of view, on the new province,

psalmody, 403; psalms and hymns of
the seventeenth century, 404-6; dr.
Watts eminently the poet of the sanc-
tuary, 407-9; one feature of psalms of
thanksgiving is scarcely recognised in
modern forms of Christian worship, 410;
yet it is the leading theme in the psalms,
411; unless a scriptural taste is sedu-
lously cultivated, the multiplication of
hymns and of hymn-books is an evil,
412; versions of the psalms might be
arranged according to their subject-mat-
ter, 413; present work has evidently
been compiled with much care, 414.

Spiritual Despotism. By the Author of
Natural History of Enthusiasm, 325;
eloquent testimony to the efficiency of the
voluntary principle, 326, 7; high church
intolerance, 327, 8; our author betrays
ignorance of the actual state of things
within the establishment, 329; the ge-
neral argument of the present volume,
330, 1; the oppugners of state esta-

ployed for their respective ends are
widely different, 499; church-govern-
ment never intended to serve the pur-
pose of government properly so called,
500; the spirit of Christian institutions
abhors all coercion over the minds of
men, 501; but what is ecclesiastical
power? 502; error committed by pre-

forbidden by our Lord himself, 505; our
author, in vindicating Constantine, has
