theologians and biblical critics : distinctly marking them, who have taken different sides of a disputed point, and directing the attention of the student to that interpretation which seems to be best supported, and most generally received. In those collections which are already before the public, the heads of the respective arguments are given, and that without any regard to connexion and arrangement; so that the student is left in a maze of conflicting opinions, the merits of which can only be appreciated by a reference to the writers themselves. This defect has been severely felt and la. mented, by young students more especially; who have not always either the leisure, or the means, to consult the numerous and expensive works, a digest of which, and not merely the outlines, the Analecta are intended to supply. This work will be
published in October next. The Christmas Box for 1829..We find a report is in circulation in certain quarters
that this popular Juvenile Annual has been discontinued. On the contrary, we are assured that it is in active progress,- that it is more than half printed, and will appear with increased strength, as the idea which we are enabled to furnish of its probable contents will prove. In the first place, the little volume is to open with an Irish story, of considerable length, from the pen of Miss Edgeworth. Mrs Hofland furnishes an Historical Tale_Miss Mitford a Village Sketch, with some poetry. Then follow contributions from Mrs Jameson, the authoress of the “ Diary of an Ennuyée,” and of the not sufficiently known, but very pretty, child's story of Little Louisa"-our accomplished Parisian friend, Madame de Labourt-Miss Dagley, authoress of the Birth Day”_Mrs Jewsbury, of Manchester-Mrs HemansMrs James Douglas-Miss E. Taylor— Mrs Emmerson-Mrs Neeley-with other esteemed writers. The editor, Mr Crofton Croker, thus promises us a rich display of female talent, in addition to his unrivalled countrywoman, Miss Edgeworth ; and we also learn that there are several eminent gentlemen contributors ; and they must
exert themselves, or they will be beaten by the “ weaker" sex. In a neat pocket volume, with maps, a new edition, revised and improved, The Cam
brian Tourist, or Post-chaise Companion, through Wales. On the 1st of Sept. will be published, the last Number of the 10th Volume of Neale's
