- ON EDUCATION, &c. from the German. By the Rev. WILLIAM TOOKE, F. R.S.

In 2 large vols. 8vo. Price 11. 1s. in Boards. The concurrent testimony of all the periodical journals, both at home and abroad, in favour of the Sermons and devotions of this celebrated divine, not only on account of the unaffected and captivating strain of eloquence in which they flow, but for the benign and truly evangelical spirit with which they are animated, is sufficiently known. That they breathe the pure and genuine spirit of christianity, and exhibit religiou "to our view in a form the most animated and alluring, is indeed their peculiar praise, as thousands can happily testify, from their own experience of the cheerful and placid influence they have bad upon their heart and life. In short, they irresistibly recommend themselves to all who would see christianity rescued from the jargon of the schools, and imbibe it as the pure and immortal religion of the Son of God.

“ Mr. Murray's English Grammar, English Exercises, and Abridgment of the Grammar, claim our attention, on account of their being composed on the prin. ciple we have so frequently recomaended, of combining religious and moral im. provement with the elements of scientific knowledge. The late learned Dr. Blair gave his opinion of it in the following terins:- Mr. Lindley Murray's Grammar, with the Exercises and the Key in a separate volume, I esteem as a most excel. lent performance. I think it superior to any work of that uature we have yet had; and am persuaded that it is, by much, the best Gram nar of the English language extant. Ou Syntax, in particular, he has shown a wonderful degree of acuteness and precision, in ascertaining the propriety of language, and in rectitying the numberiess errors which writers are apt to cominit. Most useful these books Rrust certaiuly be tu all who are applying themselves to the arts of composition'."
