ARTICLE I.

A DISCOURSE ON THE STUDIES OF THE UNIVERSITY. By

ADAM SEDGWICK, M. A., F.R.S., &c. Woodwardian Professor and Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge. Third Edition. Cambridge, 1834. 8vo, pp. 157.

This is a work of great merit, and is one of the most pleasing indications with which we are acquainted, of the progress of sound philosophy in the University of Cambridge. Mr Sedgwick enjoys a high reputation as a geologist-second, we believe, only to Lyell; but this Discourse proves that, in moral science also, he possesses extensive knowledge, and powers of profound and correct investigation. A beautiful strain of rational piety and love of truth pervades it, which leads us at once to love and respect the author. It is prefaced by a text (Psalın cxvi. 17, 18, 19,) and contains throughout numerous quotations from Scripture; from which circumstances, and its title, we conclude that it is a sermon. Far from objecting to it on this account, we wish that many sermons of a similar character were preached and published. We have, therefore, much pleasure in introducing some of the author's views to our readers.

The Discourse was delivered on the day of the annual commemoration of the founders of the University of Cambridge, and is published at the request of the junior members of the Society to whom it was more immediately addressed. It contains, not a formal, but a comprehensive and valuable, dissertation on academic studies.

One of the most important features in modern philosophy, is the practical application of the doctrine, that all nature is regulated by laws instituted by the Creator, and that human happiness and virtue are promoted by studying and obeying them. Mr Sedgwick observes,—“ We are justified in saying, that in the moral as in the physical world, God seems to govern by ge
