in which the Sabbath is violated; this leads him to speak of Sabbath trains on rail-roads. Many weighty suggestions are made in connection with this last topic. We should like to see a copy of the book in the hands of every stockholder in Sabbath-breaking rail-road companies.

AMONG recent publications we notice Bellamy's New Translation of the Bible, Part VIII.-Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Canticles; Essays on the Christian Ministry, selected from the American Biblical Repository and other American Publications, with a Preface by Dr. Murch, Pres. of Stepney College; D'Aubigné's History of the Reformation in the 16th Century, translated D. D. Scott, Part I.; Ranke's History of the Popes, translated by Mrs. Austin, 2d edition; Keith's Evidence of the Truth of the Christian Religion, 24th edition; The Biblical Cabinet, Vol. XXXII.-Rosenmüller and others on the Messianic Psalms; Dr. Prichard's Researches into the Physical History of Mankind, Vol. III,-containing the History and Ethnography of the Nations of Europe and Asia, to be completed in two volumes.


Dr. Hodge's Commentary on Romans,-translated into French by Rev. Horace Monod of Marseilles, and accompanied by a Preface from the pen of Rev. Adolphus Monod, Professor in the Theological Seminary at Montauban,-is received with general favor by evangelical Christians. A very flattering notice of the work has been published in the Archives du Christianisme; the writer, however, differs from the interpretation of Rom. V., denying the doctrine of imputation as set forth by Dr. Hodge, and affirming its opposition to the sentiments of the early Reformers, of Calvin in particular.Stephens' Incidents of Travel in Central America, etc., has been translated into French.-A poem, entitled: De Tristibus Franciæ, by an unknown author of the 16th century, has recently appeared. The subject is the civil wars by which France was desolated under the three sons of Catharine de

Medicis. Among the recent announcements are Panorama d'Egypte et de Nubie; Renovation philosophique ou Exposé des vrais principes de la philosophie, by Girard de Candemberg; L'Espagne artistique et monumentale, Vol. I., a new publication by a Spanish Society of artists, intended to make known the monumental treasures of that country.


In a recent letter to Dr. Robinson, Gesenius expresses his intention to complete his Thesaurus in 1842; he is also preparing a new edition of his Commentary on Isaiah.—A fifth edition of De Wette's Introduction to the Old Test. has appeared at Berlin, much improved and enlarged. We are informed that a font of movable hieroglyphic types has been cast at Leipsic; above 3000 of the characters are already completed. Vol. V. of Neander's History of the Christian Religion and Church is published, extending from Gregory VII. to Boniface VIII.-Dr. J. Chr. Wm. Augusti died April 28th; he had been Prof. of Theology at Jena, Breslau and Bonn successively, and author of an Introduction to the Old Test., Manual of Christian Archeology, and particularly of the Memorabilia from Christian Archeology. Stephens' Încidents of Travel in Central America, etc., has been translated into German.


The Chevalier Visconti has been appointed Professor of Archeology in the French Academy at Rome, in the place of the late Prof. Nibby.-From a recent account of the University of Padua, we learn that nearly all the professorships in the four faculties of Theology, Law, Medicine and Philosophy are filled. Dr. Valbusa is Prof. of Hebrew, the Exegesis of the Old Test., etc.; Dr. Agostini of Greek and the Exegesis of the New Test.; Dr. Fannio of Dogmatic Theology; Dr. Piotto of Ecclesiastical History. Intellectual and moral philosophy appears to receive but little attention.

United States.

Wiley & Putnam have Part I. of a Complete Hebrew Concordance, edited by Dr. Nordheimer and Wm. W. Turner, now in press.
