In many Serieqs this is by, far the most de
lightful and truthful volume wich has appeared
in this country on the subject of English Society,
shun, the days of Washington Irving. Many of
our •tourists pass through England as rapidly as
Railroads can carry them, and they find all bar
ren. Others ramble through the leading manu
facturing regions, and visit London, without gene
rating-into the country, and, above all, without
getting into the genial heart of English Society. .
Others visit the country without any knowledge
of the objects of Interest, which, in an historical,
antiquarian, religious, or literary point of view,
are worthy of; examination and study, and as
might be expected, they pass the most interesting
localities- without knowing what pleasures they
are hosing ; and if they inflict a book on
their countrymen, on their return home, the
generalities of, its pages, and the splenetic efforts
after criticism, show that their own ignorance
was, after all, the main cause of the dieappoint
ment which they experienced. No person can
travel to any good. purpose , in England; who , is
not intimately acquainted with the history of the
country ; with the incidents of importance in the
lives`of :the great historical and literary person
ages who have made the. country celebrated;
with, the remarkable events which have taken
place in -its Castles, Catindrala, and Baronial
Manstons on the' one hand, and its cottages and
village homes on the' , other hand, which have
been the cradles of many of its most renowned
heroes. Still farther, if the traveler froth this
country be a gentleman, he can have little diffi
culty in finding his way, into genteel society in
England, and then all ,that is interesting in the
land will be open beforehim.. In all these re
spects Mr. Core possessed every qualification.
He moved in the highest circles, was at home in
the Colleges of Oxford and Cambridge, 'fried in the
mansions of the country gentry, and became ac
quainted with every stratum of- society, from the
rank of the peasant upwards. He brought with
him to his journey an acquaintance With the
minutiae of the general history of the country,
and the historical interest of localities, such as
is rarely possessed by any one. Ile has an eye
for rural beauty, a mind that revels in the glories
of the past, and for drinking in all the poetry of
the monuments of England's greatness, whether
seen in her seats of learning or of piety. Ac
cordirigly, his book is as we have said, iecompara
'My the beat and•the most truthful exhibition of
the great worth, and the. great moral and social
beauty which is visible in English 'homes, that
• we• have read for many years. : The book, how
ever, has two sides to it Onr readers will cm
derstand what we mean when we say that Mr.
Core's warmest landations are reserved for the
Bishop of Oxford, and the party in the Estab
lishment, of which he is the leader. He touches'
the abominations at St. Barnabas with great gen
tleness ;and an Evangelical in the Church is as
great an object of contempt -as a Dissenter oat
side: its pale, while Land, Charles L, Strafford,
and anchinen, are the objects of his admiration.
Thns it is that Mr. Core, and all who think with,
him, do not see that it was the evangelical ele
ment in the Church of England, which, after the
Reformation, invested it, with its early glory;
that its beauty and its isefulness alike departed
when the influence of Laud and such- men ouc
(seeded in nourishing within its pale,,, a High
Church 4 Principle which, as surely as it matures
in any age and among any of her people, demon
strates its essentially Itomish character, and that
at present the 'conversions to. Rome which .have
taken place amens the followers of the Oxford
Traetirians, are. nothing more than an Matra
tion of the fact, that when the dead mass of
English , High - Churchilm is galvanized into ac
tivity, and when the men of that stamp become
, alive aid '
earnest in carrying out their principles
to a logical and necessary conclusion, they al

These are two very delightful volumes ? In
mems,respecta they are better adapted- for family
reading than either of the former cornea of Pro
fessor:leed'S Lecitures, valuable and attractive as
they unquestionably are. When the Lectures on
Eeglish Literature" appeared, we commended
them as displaying a fine,- healthy, and diserlmi
nating spirit of genuine criticism. Ike second
volume on "History altillustrated by iiihakaileare's
. ,Play's," exhibited an originality of invention,end
- it - closeness •of observation, which contrast most
Yol'ablY with the superficial criticism and ex
ieinporaneous writing which is so often published
and puffed as if it were profoundly philoeophicaL
The Sethi now before us was delivered by Pro:.
intim Reed in the year 1841, and the Editor has
given them to the public 'as they were then
livered.. We need not occupy our space by any
eulogy on the style and mode of thought or keen
ness of perception of poetic beauty which char
.,aoterized the lamented author. On these points
we have alriady given our very decided deliver
..nnce, and. as we have referred to the fact that
these volumes are fitted for genearal reading, we
shall t condense the Table of Contents, in order
that our meaning may be seen. The first volume
contains a history of literature;with leferenoes
to Spencer and Milton. After a close examina
tion of the dawning period of English Mere Ore,
Chaucer, 'Spenser, Shakspeare, and Milton, are
reviewed. Then come the Minor Poets of . the
seventeenth Century; Dryden and the Age of the
-Destaration;lPope, and the Age of Queen Anne;
while the volume closes with Cowper and the po
ets of the later part of the eighteenth cent ury.
Tha second vi.dime is occupied with Banks, Scott,
Coleridge, Southey, Byron; and Wordsworth,
with iheir“contemporaries. When we •addAliat
, quo.
tations, and that on every page the delightful
spirit of the author is conspicuous, we think that
our readers will comprehend why we point to
this work as altogether fitted - for the family cir
cle in the Rioter evening, or for the sea shore,
or the forest shade in the approaching season.
ler the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate,
Bible Narratives.—No. 26.
There are four covenant heads named in
the Bible. Adam, "in' whim all die;"
Christ, in whom all the members of the in
visible Church' "iire made alive; Noah, in
whom there is a covenant guarantee of con
tinue&probation, whether it terminates in
heaven or not; and Abraham, the covenant
father of the re-organixed and Visible
.Church; or, as Paul expresses it, the father
of them that- believe, and the father of cir
cumcision even to the uncircumcised.
The Church, as we stated in a • previous-
Narrative, had an existence in the ante
diluvian age. Then it was in ,the
The father was .the..;priest of his house.
Perhaps, without any distinctive seal,•the
entire race of Adam' were considered alike
interested iirthe -0 seed,"
common mother. Thus, the only distinc
lion'. between the Gramli and the world':
would be seen in individual repudiation of
her privileges, as with "the sons of the
giapts;" and in special
• interpositions of
God, as with Cain, and in the deluge. Now
and then one would be raised up, as Enoch,
and Noah, who, as 'preachers of righteous
ness, would for a while unite the godly.
But soon they would be scattered, as before,
among the masses of the race. Similar
things may be noted of the period from the
deluge to the vocation of Abraham. In
consequence, however, of the fact that the
covenant with Noah precluded 'a second
general severment - of .the righteous and
the wicked by special, Divine judg
ments; and also from the fact that the
perversity of: man, during ;this latter age,
required the intrOduction of providen
tial restraints, such as diversity of language,
race,, and position in society, it now became
manifest that the hiunan 'race, as snob,
could no longer . be trusted with the devel
opment of Redemption. Therefore, the king
dom of God on earth must assume a distinc
tive form, as severed from common human
ity ; and the sons of Noah must be forbidden
any longer, as such, to claim covenant priv
ileges through the expectancy of a Messiah.
Their relation to Noah may secure natural
life and a carnal seed, but their- relation to
him, or to a common humanity, in itself
gives no'covenant interest in a promised sal
vation. There must now be family accept
ance, individual faith, and personal submis
sion to stipulated terms. Thus the covenant
of God with Abraham recorded in the
chapter set at the head of this article, be
ecmes exceedingly important and interesting.
Without intending a notice of all that is
stated and intimated in this wonderful
Church, constitution, we shall call attention
to the follovring, particulars.
First. The intended extent of effect
upon, man's interests is worthy of special in
quiry. The Jew, during a great part of his
history, has manifestly confined it far below
the intention of Jehovah. The Apostles of
Christ 'with difficulty broke away from their
narrow feelings, to lay hold of the broad
principles of the covenant itself, and to re
joice in the benevolent and far-reaehing de
signs of Jehovah toward the whole race of.
Adam. Ev,en yet, with the New Testament
opened, and held up so as to east its light upon
the past, there are those who give God credit
for doing what they allege` he neither prom
ised nor intended in his covenant with the
father of the faithful, and of the visible
Church. But we appeal to the covenant
transaction itself for the truth, and for re
futation of aßerroneous Views.
There is as promise to Abraham, that he
should be a " father of many nations."
This meets, by a different mode of expres
sion, the promise before giten, that, in him
"all the families should be
blessed." Thus, the. name great end,
though, to some extent,' by different ex
ternal means, is held up to view, as had
been 'held up during the -,past! twenty
centuries of the history of: the human
race. Mercy will extend her arms as
wide as is consistent with God's char
:toter and glory. Cenfirmatory of this
is, the promise, " 1 will give unto thee, and
to thy seed after thee, `the land ,in which
thou art a s stranger, all' the land of Canaan"
As inspired commentary is better than any
other in giving the sense, we refer to Gal.
iii : 16, and find that the seed was,not lit
eral descendants, but Christ, i. e., Christ in
his representative character. This the his
tory of the family of Abraham , confirms.
Numerous servants ,and eaptives are admit
ted into covenant relation, by submiiing to the
appointed seal. Yet, three large branches of
the natural seed, viz., the. ,Ishmielitas, the
children of liaturah, and the kdornites,
their own act, are exclude 4 and this act,
though like many others performed by, man,
meets .the purposes of, God, gives lessons of
instruction, and yet becomes a just. ground
of exclusion.
The chief difficulty to a world-wide extent
of 'design, is the ,mention of ,Canaan for ':a
possession. , This difficulty, :however, is
greatly diminished; if we reflect that
thoughts of the widest ,import are often in
prophecy couched in local and limited terms:
Thus, Christ is. David ; or the . Bert of David;
and the Church, in her latter day gfory, is
Jerusalem and Zion, from' which goes forth
" the law and word of Jehovah." So
Canaan proper, conquered by Joshua, rind
from which the right was given to extermi
:nate every native inhabitant, becomes, in
David, the land promised from • the Eu
phrates to the Nile.. And in Christ, the
,great 'representative , of the promised seed,
the " land of sojournings " becOmes the
ihole earth, the residence of:the "multi
tude of "nations" of which Abraham is
father. Thus the ides meets.what Paul de
clares (Rom. iv : xiii,) of Abraham, that
He was heir of the world."
Second/y. The inquiry is scarcely less
important as to the period during which it
is designed this covenant or Church consti
tution shall
in full force. Does it
affect us in this age of the world ? 'ln
genuity has been taxed to weaken the foice
Of "everlasting," as applied to the posses
sion promised to, and the covenant made
with Abraham, or we believe every reader
of the Bible woUld assent to a perpetuity of
design. If, however, any doubt rests upon
the mind, this maybe'-removed by,the ex
plicit language of the New Testament,
The seed is undoubtedly Chriat, or the Church
for which he stands. The promise to him
is that "his kingdom should have no end:"
- and his promise to its subjects, is, to - be
With them, "even to the end of the , world."
.There can be no doubt hit that it is the
'same kingdom, of God, constituted and con
tinued, in virtue, of, the covenant with
which` was taken ,fibia.the Jew,
a n A; kite* , to' n nation bringing forth, the
fruits' thereof.—Matt. xxi : 43. There can
be as little doubt that it is the Church
sweeping over more than one dispensation,
which is the old olive stock of peace, that
still stands to bear the wild Gentile branches,
and the Jewish ones for a time broken off
and withered.—Rom. xi: 17-21. Thus;
whatever change took place when New Testa
] ment times commenced, the Abishamie ec
• clesiastical covenant still continued in fUll
i form This is affirmed very distinctly by
Paul, Rom. iv: 11-13 ; " Abraham re•
, calved the sign of circumcision ; the seal of
i the righteousness of the faith which he had,
: yet being uncircumcised, that he might • be
• the father of all.them that , believe, though.
I they be not circumcised." Here, doubt
I less, there is an extension of the covenant
I to the Gentiles, either with or without some
outward align arid seal. But the Apostle adds,
" And the father of circumcision to them not
only of the circumcision, but also to there
walking in the steps of the faith of our father
Abraham, which he had, being uncircum
cised"l Whatever, then, the sign of mem
f bership is in the Church, constituted' of un
r circumcised persons walking in the steps of
Abraham, he is ‘the father of it. The 'sign
I was originally applied to Abraham himself,
Ito all those who professed his faith, and to
theirGentilesdoinfant seed. by faith be-
I come children of .Abraham, cMatt. iii : 9 ;
`, Gal. iii : 7-9
.;) and it •is their duty to, re
ceive; and properly :attend to, the !sign
or seal, of , faith,-,which is ,baptism —Col ii :
1 12: 'The conclusion ' cannot, therefore, be
i'lataved off, that , baptism, comes in the room
of circumcision; and that the, laws Of the e
one continue in full force- for the other, - : nn-,
less se far - as-there are abrogations made, or
changes specified. The distinction of -sex
is taken away, (Acts viii: ;'l2',' Gal. 3 : 28,)
but of other alterations we have no intima
tion. The covenant with. Abraham is thus
everlasting; and we of the -presei.t age are
subject to the penalty of neglect, or we may
profit by the appended blessing.
Thirdty. With fully equal profit we think
the reader may look at the. terms of , admis
sion into the Church of which Abraham is
the constituted head. They are distinctly
pointed out in the words of the covenant,
and in the historical sequel. There must
be-a' profession of faith, a- promise. of obe
dience to specified ternas, and a submission'
to the " token of the covenant.", Extremes
seem natural to man's erring judgment,
and one extreme usually begets another.
Thus, externalism, as of the sacraments as
a charm, '.and prayers numbered. with a
beaded amulet, seem so abaurd to many
that they have gone to the opposite extreme,
of ..a spiritualism wholly without outward
forms, or with such forms as :they euppose
will enable r them to' discern spirits, and to
constitute a visible Church of those only
who are members of the invisible. The-ene
extreme being wrong, will not, however,
make the other zight. -
Any covenant, though 'God be its author,
and a faithful party will fail in many speci
fied cases, if erring man is the tithe; party,
and is allowed, without specialinterpositions
and miraculous guidande, to conduct - his
part of the stipulated arrangement. Thus
the circumcised man, who lived and died in
the family of Abraham, without faith,
would not have the righteousness of faith or
of God, sealed to him. But he would have the
privileges of meMbership in the family sealed
to himself and children. Therefore, since God
knew the deceitfulness of the human heart,
and since he did leave to man, without any
promised providential intimations, the ac
complishment of his part of the compact,
we are safe in concluding, that tied will
guard his own honor in an invisible way, as
to. thainvisible- Church ; -and ,that,he in
tended to leave man to conduct the affairs
of his visible kingdom, or Church, on earth,
according to tangible, and clearly discerna
ble principles. " A profession: of: faith intel
ligently made, an apparently sincere promise'
of obedience to the stipulations named, and
a Manifested willingness of submission to
the seal, was all'that need be'appointed of
God, as it was all that could'be required, or
would' be attended to, by man. - -
As if to indicate• that the token of the
covenant,' when viewed as a seal of external
privileges, is different in sense, than when
viewed as a seal `of the' 'righteousness ..of
faith, of which God will take care that ifii
properly applied,k the seal is given to the
man only who is to be taken as head of the
woman, asChrist is the head of the-Church.
--Eph. v: 23 And though the Beal im
plies faith in the adult, (Dent. x : 16;) and
though, to be merely of the literal Israel, is
clearly not 'to be a' Jew in the full sense,
(Rom. ii : 29,) yet, with all this unfaithful
ness on the part of individuals, Paul affirms
advantage in -being a Jew, and profit in cir
cumcision, chiefly becanse:God in this mixed
state of the visible Church, according to his
original purpose, was fulfilling his promise,
in giving his Oracles to the world.—Rom.
iii : 2. Strengthening this broader sense of
the sign of circumcision, is the command to
apply it to the infants of the sealed parent,
upon the eighth, day ;. thus, at once making
the Church consist of fami lies, and prophet
ically intimating the change of sacred time
from the seventh to the eighth day,or the
first of a new series—the Sabbath of the
Churah in her enlargement, with seal, of
water upon the forehead, (Rev. vii : 3,) in
stead of bloody seal upon the body.
Perhaps the, most remarkable feature of
the Abrahamic covenant, and that which is
richest • in lessens of instruction, is the con !
tinned recognition of the
_family.. <Many
Modern'modelers of churches *mild, in their
wisdom, discard this; and some-who do not
discard it in theory, do practically- treat it
with total indifference, or even utter eon
tempt. But not so with Jehovah, or with
Abraham.—Gen. xviii : 19. The March
had been in the family, and now the family
must be recognized in the Church. Civil
government, it is thought, could not long
survive the destruction of the great laws which
bind the different members of the family
together in harmony, and which call out , the
affections •of 'the whole toward the civil
polity itself,' yet civil government can mast
without giving the right of suffrage to all
members of, the family. These principles
are recognized in the .Abrahamic covenant.
They run, through the entire Jewish econ
omy. They are recognized and re-affirmed
as a distinguishing feature of the New Tes
tament Church. This is done, not merely
in repeating the old promise "to parents
and their , children ;" but in breaking down
the exclusive male representative system,
Christ having now come ; and in making
the wife the head of the, family where the
husband is literally , dead, or dead in sin , ;
thus, in a sense, bringing into the Church,
through the faith of the wife, as well as the
husband, the entire family.-1. Cor. vii :
13-16. But whilst the family ties already
constituted, and those viewed as in prosneo
tire, are to be sacredly guaxded, and appro
priately recognized as within the jurisdiction
of the Church, upon the faith of either
head of thefamily, yet there is no right
given to form relationships with avowed
aliens and epemies, and then expect the
Church to throw her mantel over thingi thus
brought into the family. The weak faith
that will allow such conduct, rather indicates
ilie prepriety of thee ilio liftve so acted
- being<iiiiit -off,- unless they give evidenceif
repentance.—Ezra z:7, 8 ; 2., Cor. 14..
Individualsbro i eght into covenant relation
by the family relationship, to one to whom
God has given faith, may repudiate it; but
they do' .so at their peril as individuals,
whilst they leave the covenant of God, and
the advantages which were designed to flow
from it, as they were.
If these things be true, asceticism, monas
ticism, communism, and that ecclesiastical
socialism built on the conceited notion of a
visible Church, composed only of saints,
have all the stamp of error upon them,
either because, they wholly'destroy the fami
ly, or beeause they bleak away from, and re
pudiate the , hallowed influences which God
has thrown around it. The Church of Israel
was a Church of tribes. and families. With
out any other change than what is necessary
for a wider field; and a inore'varied human
ity, the Church still in:Act, grand and dis
tinguishing features, must• be. similar, if she
would• do for the world the work which God ,
has put into her hands." ' •G.W. S.

Indians in Pennsylvania.
The fewest number of people in , this
State—at least East of the Allegheny mann
tainsare probably—aware that there are
any IniHans remaining upon their own soil.
We confess that - we were not aware, that
there was a single' family of the red man
lingering in Pennsylvania. And yet it
seems that there is a small ,remnant of the
Corriplinter Indians living 'in . Warren Coun
ty,. in the. Noith-western ,border of Oni Opp
monwealth, sufficiently numerous to have a
school in operation.for their special benefit.
The following' ex i .tract we find in the Report
of the State Superintendent of Common
Schools, on this subject :
4 4 CORPiPiaNTER INDLANB.-11 1856, the
Legislature passed an act, authorizing the
establishment of a school for the benefit of ,
the Cornplanter Indians, in Warren ,County.
Bra reference to the Report of the Super
intendent of that County, it will be found,
that under the direction of a competent
'femalo teacher; a school is now in successful
operagee., .l'he passage of such a law was
a diatinguished mark of the benevolence of
the State, and her fostering care of the
wanti and interests of all her citizens ; and
every' effort will be made in the future, to
give that last remnant of Indiwas within
our borders, its full pOwer for their moral
and Boo*improvement."
