truly stated, that these learned bodies assumed and exercised this power, and, that when used, it was practically great; but we mention these circumstances to shew what weight such writers as Raynaud, Alphonsus de Castro, and Cardinal Caietan, allowed to the opinion of an University in such cases.

1. Letters to W. Wilberforce, Esq. to which is added an Answer to Melancthon; first series, 1822, second series, 1823. 8vo. London. Eedes.

Very excellent letters; full of inter. esting and important information; and which may not be unseasonable at the present juncture of political affairs.

2. The Poor Man's Preservative against Popery; addressed to the lower Classes of Great Britain and Ireland. By the Rev.Joseph Blanco White, formerly Chaplain to the King of Spain, in the Royal Chapel of Seville: nowa Clergyman of the Church of England. 4th edit. London. Rivington. Is. or 10s. 6d. a dozen.

An excellent little work, which it may not be too late to recommend to some of our readers. It is much to be wished that tracts of this description,.--cheap and popular,--- were more generally circu. lated, especially in Roman Catholic dis. tricts. This pamphlet well deserves its title ; and being published, as the author informs us, without profit to himself, “ in order that it may be sold at the lowest possible price''-.We hope it may obtain an extensive circulation among the poor.
