This volume, like that which preceded it a year ago, though entirely composed of selections from the Princeton Review, is not made up by the Conductors of that valuable publication. . . . . . . . . It is with no common satisfaction that the collector of these tracts presents as many as seven from the pen of the late distinguished Professor Dod. They are the articles on:Capital Punishment, Phreno. logy, the Vestiges of Creation, Analytical Geometry, and Oxford Architecture, together with the Reviews of Mr. Finney and Dr. Beecher. These Essays are the best extant testimonial to the genius and cultivation of their lamented author. The article on Hebrew Concordances is also a memorial of departed intellect; being a production of the late Professor Nordheimer. Several of the remaining Essays in this volume awakened extraordinary interest at the time of their publication: among these may be named those on Slavery and Abolition, and that on the Baptist Translation of the Bible. The rapid sale of the former volume makes us secure in regard to that which is now offered.
