the work in them was of the Holy Ghost. I mention this for the information of the reader, who may feel interested in their history, although it is a fact which does not influence my own conviction on the subject.

To some it may appear, as if I were assuming an importance to myself, by publishing my change of opinion, but I am in truth only clearing my conscience, which requires me thus publicly to withdraw a testimony which I had publicly given, when I no longer believe it myself.

A LETTER to the Author of Millenarianism Indefensible; Exhibiting Evidence of the MILLENARIAN VIEWS of the Moderator and other Leading Members of the WESTMINSTER ASSEMBLY, and of many of the most EMINENT DIVINES IN ALL AGES of the Church. By the Rev. W. ANDERSON. 12mo, 18. 6d.

The testimonies produced of the sentiments of Eminent Divines, particularly recommend it to those who venerate antiquity,-especially the admirers of the Confession of Faith. It is here proved, beyond all question, that Dr. Twisse, (Moderator of the Westminster Assembly,) Messrs Marshall, Palmer, Caryll, Sterry, Burroughs, and Dr. Goodwin, all leading men among the Divines of that Assembly, with many others, were express Millenarians-their Millenarianism being exhibited indeed, to some extent, in the Standards they were employed to compile. Extracts are also given from John Bunyan and others whose authority has not hitherto been produced.

A LETTER to the Rev. A. Symington, D.D., containing Extracts from THE TESTIMONY of the REFORMED PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, and Reasons for RELINQUISHING THAT COMMUNION. By a RESIGNING ELDER 12mo, 4d.

This Letter contains an exhibition of a great number of articles to which the Church addressed professes adherence, unscriptural in their nature, and tyrannical in the highest degree, if carried into execution. It is shown that the simplicity of the Gospel has been superseded, by acts of Assembly and Parlia ment being interposed between the table of the Lord and the desires of his people to show forth his death; and no member of this Church, acceding to their present Terms of Communion, is free from the sin of sanctioning deeds and decisions which never should have had existence, and which truth demands should be immediately repudiated-while they have cut off members from their communion, for avowing" the blessed hope" of the Saviour's Speedy Advent.

The HOPE OF ISRAEL; Presumptive Evidence that the Aborigines of the Western Hemisphere (the AMERICAN INDIANS,) are Descended from the TEN MISSING TRIBES OF ISRAEL. By B. A. SIMON. 8vo. 10s. bds.

"Fanciful as some may reckon the contents of this volume, they cannot, to any Christian, be devoid of powerful interest. The past History, present condition, and future destiny, of the consecrated nation, are things which can never be contemplated with cold indifference, or tame emotion. The curse of Jehovah has lighted and lain heavy upon their devoted tribes; and prophetic denunciations of woe and wrath have been accomplished to the very letter; and not one jot or tittle forgotten or forborne. But their future story is written in brighter characters; and God, who has followed up the predicted vengeance with such a full and literal accomplishment, will not be more slack to fulfil the very letter of his long-promised blessings. Nor ought present appearances, however unfavourable, at all to abate our confident belief of the coming glory of the Returned and repentant Tribes-when the yoke of their bondage shall be broken over the ruins of mystic Babylon, the sorrows of exile be forgotten in the enjoyment of their ancient soil, and the vail of spiritual darkness be removed from their blinded eyes. Relying on the Divine promises, we feel assured that the Ten Tribes of Israel, however scattered and lost, shall be sought out and recovered by the providence of God, at his own appointed time; yet we feel not the less interested in the various conjectures and inquiries which have been made regarding their present condition and country. Accordingly, we open with eagerness a volume which professes to lay before us even Presumptive Evidence, regarding the exile of Israel. NOR DOES PRESBYTERIAN REVIEW.
