Just published, price 2s. 6d. THE PROSPECTIVE REVIEW; No. IlI. A QUARTERLY JOURNAL OF THEOLOGICAL LITERATURE. EDITED BY REV. J. H. THOM AND REV. JAMES MARTINEAU, OF LIVERPOOL; REV. JOHN JAMES TAYLER, OF MANCHESTER; AND

REV. CHARLES WICKSTEED, OF LEEDS.

“The Prospective Review (No. III.) might with propriety be called the Intellectual Review-so penetrating is the intellectual eye by which it scans and judges all things. We have not met with any periodical of late, where we have found so much writing of a high order; so just a standard of criticism; so charitable a tone, and at the same time, so much thorough honesty of speech - -as in the Review before us.”- Leeds Times,

“ Those who wish to have a correct view of the higher qualities of mind in their application to theology, as a science, identified with literature, will take in this new Quarterly. Dogmatism there is none, charity is abundant, and here only will the English reader find what the great men of Germany, France, and Italy, think and say on matters the most important and instructive.

"In the present number (the 2nd), there are eight articles. The first is a masterly one on the late Rev. Sidney

Smith; the second discusses Democracy in America; the third, deeply interesting, is a review of Michelets History of France; the fourth is an admirable esti. mate of Emerson's Essays, and there is a very elaborate notice of Protestantism in Germany, and of the Church and State in England.”—Liverpool Journal.

“ We never met with a Review which in so early a stage of its existence gave such evident proofs of permanent vitality, or such confirmed promise of future as well as existing excellence. Every subject is handled in a masterly style, and with full and thorough knowledge; while the force of the writer's arguments, and the point of their illustration reminds us of the early numbers of the Quarterly and the Edinburgh, when the giants of those days Sidney Smith, Gifford, Henry Brougham (not the lord of that name), Jeffery, Walter Scott, Wilson, and the rest—were in the full vigour of their faculties.”—Railway Bell.
