Happily Mr. RYle's works are so well known
in this country that we need not occupy our space
in characterizing them. We believe that the lia
ner first made the American public' aware of the
value of his 'Writings; by the publication entire
of seiner of 'his earliet written tracts. We hail
the appearanne of every volttme or tract which
proceeds from'his_ien.— The one before us is well
suited to fill Up's: vacancy in our •religious Mara.
tare. The author had three objects in view in
preparing - it. He intended it for use at fam
ily-prayers ; as an aid to those who visit the sick
and. the , poor ; and for private devotional reading.
The ,book is well suited for each of these uses.
A portion of the text , is given, and , then 'follows
the comment, and few notes are added when
special ditllculties 'occur:'' bue_regard is paid
to the length of each comment, and consequently
the'use of the volume will not needlessly prolong
the'family devotional exercise. This book hos
our hearty approval, and we pray that it, may go
forth with an abundant blessing from the great
Head of the Church.

The author of this tale has constructed it-on
the principle that Slavery per se is not un•Scrip
tural; and his object is to 'show how bondage
may exist in connexion with gentleness, kindness,'
and the other Christian virtues. He offers it to
the North and the South as an Olive Branch in
all good faith and Christian affection.

The third number of this excellent journal is
before us. It sustains the - high character of its
,predepeSsorti: ' The subjects are arranged under
tithe general heads, viz.: Analytical and Criti
cal Reviews; Otiginal ComMunications ; and a
Bi-monthly Periscope. The last is sub-divided
into Surgery; 'Prude:ll Medicine, Pathology,
Therapeutice and Materia Medina, Obstetrics,
and an Editor's Table, which may be called an
agreeable melange of subjects, semi-medical in
character. The works reviewed are, , Broca on
Aneurisms and.their Treatirtent, (continued from
March No.;) Jewell on Historical Sketches of
Quarantine ; Medical Notes and Refinotions, by
Sir Henry , Rolland, liart.; and, a. Report on the
causes which impede the progress of American
Medical Literature, by S. D. Gross, M. D.
These are none of the namby-pamby thingasuch
as come to us ih some journals'dignified with the
nome of "
.Reviews." They, are thorough, dis
criminating,' and:scholar-like. The able editors
seem to have cermet ideas of the reepensibilities
of the profeision at large;and" of th'eniselves as
medical journalists. We commend the Review to
our professional readere. While their arduous
duties leave them little time for reading large
works on specialities, a:good journal, by the mat
ter being condensed, will keep them posted up in
their` profesidn, with cemparatively little labor.
They can have none better for this 'purpose than

OEN. XXii : 20-24.
When Abraham started, at the first call
of God, in company with his aged father,
Tenth, and with Lot, the son of Baran,
Nahor was left at the old residence, in %Jr
of the Chaldees —Gen. xi : 29-31. •Na
hor, as well
,as Abraham, seems to have been
a son of Terah's old age, as he certainly, as
some think Abraham was,,is married to, his
neice, the sister of Lot, whose father was
born to Terah in the seventy-first year: of
his age, (Gen. xi: 20,) while Abraham is
not born till in his one ; hundred and thirty
first year.—Gen xi.: .32 ; comp. xii. : 4.
It is evident-that Nahor continued his
settled life in , lff of the Chaldees fora great
while; for'we 'find - hint here' when Eliezer,
the servant of Abraham, goes to Mesopota
mia for B,dbeka h. - Gen— xx.iv 10: Though
perhaps a part of - hie faMily removed to
Etalatir at the departure of Abraham and
Lot for Cpaan, in Order to hold Possession
of ~this new.settlefeent Or At may be.that
tabarocaute,thither in, after years, to ,dwell
in the 43oun try ' shepherds , . • do, having.
,nothing: More- than a 'lotted , home:•--Gen.
xxix : 4, 5.
From Beersheba, the present residence of
Abraham, to Haran, via Damascus, is not
less than one'hundred and' fifty leagues. If
Ur of 'the Chaldees was from fifty to seventy
five leagues farther East, as we think wag
its. most probable site, then the homes of the
two brothers were not less than six hundred
miles apart. It would require almost an
entire 'inoon, - or maiith; for 'a - corkiiiiiirof
'travelers to pass from the one place to, the
other. A difficulty no less formidable than
that of the distance, would be the political
hostility 'in Which the countries betieert
stood toward each other. ,Though ;there
would be communication 'between Nineyah.
beyond Ur, and the country of the Pentopo
lis, while it remained tributary, (Gen. xiv,:
4,5,) yet the war of the 'kings, with the '
part Abraham took in it, may have closed.
thiS channel of communication between him
and' his. kindred who still dwelt in the coun
try of his nativity. Even if caravans of
traders, or of eraigrants, cad pass back and
forth from Mesopotamia- to Egypt, Abra
ham seems to have business or so
oiaF intercourse with the latter country,
since his unhappy difficulty with the court
of Pharaoh, on account of his wife.—Gen.
xii : 20. ,
Language, too, would be an obstiale in
this, age of the -world, in the way of the
transmission of news. It >is but a few
generations since the miraculous cot:di:talon
of tongues; and, as yet, men have not
overcome the barrier'to that extent to Which
they did afterwards, .by interpreters.—Gen.
xlii : 28. This barrier to family intercourse
from distant places, would not have. been
much in the way where the languagnwas
the lame, if written characters were now
used.. But it, is, probable that, as yet,
writing, if it had an existence at all, was in
a very rude state; not that man had feebler
powers in' those than in later ages, but be
cause, with his long 'life, and his dePend
enee on direct communication from heaven,
through the medium of one common speech,
for religious truth, he did not need 'written
language. As God introduced -providential
restraints, such as distinetion of language,
for the mere tffective government of a sin
ful race, so
. Ire arranged for the proper
transmission of revelation by, a written
record, when the Church must beconie sev
ered from the world, and must pass through
it as a little stream of mountain water flow
ing in the midst of stagnant marshes:' Tra
dition will be affected by its medium '''and it
will vary with-the views of the ige4hatut
ters it A revelation, for the use of fixture
ages, must, therefore; be written. For this
end, God gave iviadoni to the Hebrew' race
to form a written language. In the age of
Noses, this language seems to have attained
its highest rdegree of perfeetion:` And as
We find, centuries after the age of Moses,
very little progress made in 'communicating
thought by charatters or letters in nations
remote from Syria and Egypt, we may ra
tionally conchide that written language was
first used, to any great extent, for recording
the messages of mercy and wrath- front
heaven to men; as when GGd 'Wrote with
his finger the law upon tables of stone.
Letters containing news could, `not, there
fore, pass between the two brothers Abra
ham.and Nahor.
Religion, alio, or the antagoniiin between
the true and thee false, would be likely to
alienate, as it' did,' far distant frienda. No
principle'of thishumati heart will contribute
more to fan the fire of hatred; if once -kin
dled in the bosom, than the religious one.
If there is a fixed belief in the for of
piety attended to,,and if long existing ens
tom, as •well as present earthly t prosperity,•
add their sanction to the rites and worship
observed; alittle company of those truly
the people of God, though they do follow
the path marked plainly by an angel of the
Lord, will be despised. The men `of 'the
world and those whose religious rites but
sear go,nacience, and pulp*, the , path. 'to
hell, do'`not seettufiklititfliielt shines from
heaven to guide God's little flock. = Thus
Abraham may have leen counted visionary
by the multitudes of the great empires `of
Chedorlaomer and Pharaoh. His own
friends, whom he 'could not persuade to 'go
with him in search of a' "better country,"
may have cast him off Nut all sympathy
and friendly intercourse , for a time. Not
until they heard that the God he was serving
was', blessing him in earthly . as well , as
heavenly things, would they send such news
as that recorded in these verses.
It was now half a century since Abraham
bad -left;..llaran ; and about fifteen years
more since be had removed from Ur of the
Chidddel. The, Bible .account, „with the
manner of its. introduction, leads to the con
clusion, that during all this period no news
came from the City of Nahor to the tented
home of Abraham. But now, a little while
before Sarah dies, some one bears, news
which would be talked over with great
pleasure by the aged' patriarch and his be
loved wife; and perhaps, by many of the
aged servantsur subjects of Abraham .to
whom the names of
_Zialior and %foal).
would- still be familiar, and perhaps their
remembrane,e precious.
The Bible is written' as a record of the
plan of Redemption, andlts bleforiiit Parts
are the annals of the evolution of this plan
toward, completion. Thiis i, great empires of
early, ,times are hardly noticed. Whole

When this lad -had reached ,the age of

"Well MY dear yiiniag . brother,' you know

Happy Mary.
She moved abbut the house-like a sun

said, with a fond smile :_
