a great error with many London preachers, and at the same time to rise above the strictly plain sermon required by an unlettered flock in the country. He has hit the mean with complete success, and produced a volunie which will be readily bought by those who are in search of sermons for family reading. Out of twenty-one discourses it is almost impossible to give an extract which would show the quality of the rest, but while we commend them as a whole, we desire to mention with especial respect one on the Two Records of Creation,' in which the rerata quaestio of Geology and Genesis' is tated with great perspicuity and Christian to labour for the salvation of his relatives and friends is strongly enforced, and one on the Latin Service in the Romish Church, which though an argumentative sermon on a point of controversy, is perfectly free from a controversial spirit, and treats the subject with great fairness and ability."- Literary Churchman.

“ This volume bears evidence of no small ability to recommend it to our readers. It is characterised by a liberality and breadth of thought whi might be with advantage by many of the author's brethren, while the language is nervous, racy Saxon. In Mr. Secretan's sermons there are genuine touches of feeling and pathos which are impressive and affecting; - notably in those on 'the Woman taken in Adultery,' and on Youth and Age. On the whol., in the light of a contribution to sterling English literature, Mr. Secretan's serions are worthy of our commendation."- Globe.

“ Mr. Secretan is no undistinguished man: he attained a considerable position at Oxford, and he is well known in Westminster-where he has worked for many years - no less as an indefatigable and self-denying clergy man than as an effective preacher. These sermons are extremely plain - simple and pre-eminently practical -- intelligible to the poorest, while there runs through them a poetical spirit and many touches of the highest pathos which must attract intellectual minds." - Weekly Mail.

“Practical subjects, treated in an earnest and sensible manner, give Mr. C. F. Secretan's Sermons preached in Westminster a higher value than such volumes in general possess. It deserves success."--Guardian.

"They are earnest, thoughtful, and practical- of moderate length and well adapted for families." - English Churchman.

CHURCH, previous to the Arrival of St. Augustine, a. D. 596. Becond Edition. Post 8vo. Price 38. cloth.

The study of our early ecclesiastical history has by some been considered one of great labour ; but a little work, entitled Chronicles of the Ancient British Church,' has so collected the material from the many and various sources, and has so judiciously classified and condensed the records, that there is no longer this plea. We recommend the work not only to every student, but to every churchinan who feels an interest in the early history of his church." - Literary Churchman, June 16, 1855.

* An excellent manual, containing a large amount of information on a subject little known, and still less understood. We recommend the volume to those who wish to know what were the religious institutions and advantages of our remote ancestors." Clerical Journal, August 22, 1855. London : W.
