Finlayson, T. C. Biological religion,
A criticism of Prof. Drummond's Natural law in the spiritual world.'
"The strongest point in Finlayson's criticism of Mr. Drummond's theory of spiritual blogenesis is his demon. stration that the New Testament contains so many different metaphors for describing conversion that to con. fine one's self to the figure of the creation of life alone, is to fall into a serious error. He quotes the passage “Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light;' and continuen . Here the man who is spiritually dead is actually called upon to arise out of his death. Such an exhortation may well caution us against turning metaphors into . laws. This sentence contains in brief the gist of the whole criticism
of Mr. Drummond's book." — Spectator, Oct. 31. Fiske, J: The idea of God as affected by modern

** It is refreshing to turn from productions always empty and sometimes mischievous, and with nothing 110. ble or elevated in them from beginning to end, to a vig. orous study of such life and character as are really worth reading about. Such a study Mise Lyall has giv. en us. The golden days are the days of Charles II., and those days when they were at their darkest, just before the end of the King's reign when the surface good. nature which had looked like real kindness of heart had worn off, and revealed the cruel nature beneath. But it was a time when English life had great interest, and when strong developinents of charaoter were not unfre. quent. Some of the scenes are remarkably vivid."

** Ce livre est curieux et mème amusant. M. de Mar tel a enterpris de faire connaitre le degré de contiance que M. Thiers mérite comme historien; il emploie un moyen très simple; il met en face des dires de M. Thiers les documents que l'auteur de l'llistoire du Consulat, et de l'Empire,' a consultés ou prétendu consulter; il conclut que à tout instant M. Thiers écrit exactment le con. traire de ce que contiennent les pieces. Peut-on dire que, malgré lant de défauts, tant de rapidités et d'à peu. près, M. Thiers ait été un historien fantaisiste?' Après iout, sou æuvre est énorme; elle embrasse une vaste pé. riode pleine de grands événements de toute sorte, et dans ce vaste recit auquel manquent trop souvent les recherches exactes et minutieuses, circule néanmoins l'esprit général des choses. Blåmonis les détails, regrettons que les menus faits ne soient pas toujours fidelement presentés, mais l'ensemble demeure, l'ensemble est anime du souffle de cette intelligence que M. Thiers re. gardait comme la qualité essentielle de l'historien, et on y trouve en outre, selon un moi de Sainte-Beuve, ce don de narrer que n'ont pas bien des esprits intelligents.".

* Although the biography of Ida Black appear's somewhat late in the day, it is written with taste and judgment. Mr. Niculson does well to let his hero, who was essentially a self-made man, speak as much as possible for himself. In February 1861, Mr. Black be. gan to write exclusively for the benefit of his family his
autobicgraphical reminiscences. They were finished in 1872, when Mr. Black was in his cighiy-ninth year, 11:10 been placed at Nr. Nicolson's disposal, and many es. tracts from them are introduced into his Memoir' loy Mr. Nicolson, who says, indet d. that he would have preferred to have given them, with some alterations and additions, instead of his own narrative, which is onl. second hand.'

BW•F93 " Some readers of otherwise omnivorous appetite feel an almost insuperable repugnance to ordinary voyages and travels, but Oceana will prevail over the most obsti. nate prejudices. It seldom happens that a man of genius and a master of English style records his experi. ence as a traveller. Mr. Froude has no surprising ad. ventures or novel discoveries to relate; but his descrip. tions are pleasantly vivid, and his reflections are in. structive even to those who may sometimes question his
conclusions." - Sat. rev., Feb. 13. Green, G: W. Repudiation. 1883. (Econ. tr.)
