a

8vo. cloth, price ros. 6d. * A volume of rare excellence, both in the tone of its feeling and its literary execution ... It is manifestly impossible for us to give anything approaching to a complete account of a work like this, nor can we do adequate justice to the elaborate arguments by which the author has sought to maintain his positions. We shall have earned the thanks of our readers, who might not otherwise have become acquainted with it, if we induce them to turn to the book itself. For all thoughtful men the subjects herein discussed have an enduring interest; but it is of special importance that those whose duty it is to expound and enforce the principles of morality and the doctrines of religion should, at a time when both are impugned, know the best that can be said in their defence.'-Nonconformist,

Mill, in Principles of Political Economy. • Mr. Thornton's admirable “ Plea for Peasant Proprietors.”.

COGNATE INDIAN TOPICS.

Crown 8vo. cloth, price 8s. 6d. • An instructive treatise, composed by one who certainly understands the subject as few can pretend to understand it either in India or in England, and who superadds to accurate official knowledge the freedom of an enlightened, independent critic.'--Spectator.
