SOUL AFTER DEATH; conformable to Divine Revelalion, as interpreted by the ablest Comineulators, and consistent with the Discoveries of Science.

By a PROTESTANT LAYMAN. Ju this solume it will be found that more information can fairly be deduced from the Inspired Writings, when read by the light of our knowledge of the universe, that has ever yet been cone in any other work, and a clear distinction proved to exist Letween a middle or disembodied state, and the illusion of porgatory. The belief and opinions of several hundred of the most celebrated writers of all ages are given on the great Questions relative to Immortality, while the most orthodox doctrines on each point are laid down according to the soundest interpretations of Holy Writ.

SCOTT, in 1826, lo his booksellers, involved him in the ruin which fell upon their establishment, to an extent alike unexpected and unprepared for, but which ultimately proved not less ihan 120,0001. 'Ruinous as this demand must have been, it is yet obvious, that after er rendering to its payment the whole of his properly, he might have secured to himself and his family the fruit of his subsequent exertions, and realised from his later works not less than 70.0001. The whole of this sum, with whatever more a lengthened lise might have enabled him to obtain, he, with manly and conscientious feeliny, appropriated to the benefit of his creditors. In thus devoting his talents to the acquittal of obligations not originally, though legally his own, he laboured with a degree of assiduity, and an intenseness of anxiety, which shortened lns existence by overstrained intellectual exertion. He lived rot indeed to complete the lask ; but what he had recured, when added to the property and copyrights previously destined for the support of his family, enabled theni, by incurring deep personal responsibility, to satisiy nearly the whole amount of these debts, for which their father had been rendered liable. This has been done, and the sacritice is complele, but Abbotstord can no longer be the home of his children, Such were the stainless and irreproachable principles of that mind, whose intellectual power was only equalled by its moral worth ; and from this plain statement, those who have long and justly appreciat d the writings of SCOTT, may learn to love and venerate his virtues. Il is thought that no piemorial can be so appropriate to his name, as the permaneut maintenance of the house which his residence has rendered classical, and the preservation of a library and collection of national antiquities, which his admirable taste selected, and which his genius made avail to works, that are in every hand, and have carried the glory of English literature through every civilised region of the rarth. Is it then too much to expect, from a nation so justly proud of his fame, that in requital for so many hours of pleasure derived from his writings, they will be eager to subscribe to a tribute of gratitude alike benourable to the river and the receives; to show, that in a country like this, literature has also her triumphs, and genius its Blen. heims, bestowed by a great and cultivated people on the children of him whose life was shortened by his integrity, and whose name is immortalised by his works!

BRITISH LIBRARY, comprising the CLASSIC AUTHORS of GREAT IRITAIN, elegantly printed in foolscap 8vo. price Three Shillings.

THE PLAN OF THE WORK IS1. To publish the Works of the principal authors of Great Britain in Monthly Volumes, each containing from 3:20 to 400 pages, with Illustrations on Wood, where necessary, at the lowest possible price.

II. A leading object will be to free the British Library from the numerous errors which abound in even the best editions of our popular writers.

n. There various readings occur, they will be introduced, and in cases wbere the late of time may have produced obscurity, or the progress or discovery has extended our knowledge, notes will be added,--the text being always preserved pure, and without abridgment.

IV. Tire whole will constitute a Series connected and arranged by Iudices, or the writings of each author may be purchased separately, perfect in themselves, accompanied with a Biographical Memoir of the Author, either selected, or written expressly for the British Library.

V. The Series will embrace all our great classic writers in DIVINITY, History, PHILOSOPHY, NATURAL HISTORY, POLITE LITERATURE, and FICTION.-Lists of the forthcoming works will be appended in each volume.

It bardly admits of a doubt that this undertaking, embracing moderate price, beautiful typography, careful collation, and convenient shape, must extensive patronage. Those who regard money less than time, will be led insensibly to renew profitable study, the young will commence their reading with the best examples of scholarship, while the humble and poor may beconie possessed of those genuine sources of moral and inteilectual eminence. The First Volume will contain WHITE'S NATURAL HISTORY OF SELBORNE, And Observations on Nature, with Illustrations by Bonner, and Notes by Captain Thomas Brown, F.L.S. President of the Royal Physical Society.
