A GRAMMAR OP THE NE* TESTAMENT DICTION;
intended as an Introduction to the Critical
Study of / the Greek New Testament.. By Dr.

burgh: W. S. Rentoul.
The first edition of this great work - made its
appearance in 1822; ,Its object was to' rend to a
cornet understanding of the original language
of the New Testament, and put a !cheek to the
lawless freedom with which the sacred text was
still handled in many commentaries and *gen?
cal dissertations , '
,' It wati'lan effort' to free the
New. Testament writers from. the bondage, 'of a
perverted •philology that had been irepoSod, upon
them, and to lead to the interpretation pf i#llan-
guagews it i was understood by those:: who i
used. 4 it
in the days of our Lord, and in the time of his
Apostles. Constantlinprevemente have been
I mo& 'to the' Original work, until the present
time; from an the advances in Biblical Criticism,
by the most eminent philologists. And now it is
a oomple.te Grammar of all the peculiarities to
be found in the Greek of the New Testament, and
has received the highestapprobation of the most
distinguished scholars. The publishers have
done a good work in undertaking =the publication
of this book, and are entitled to the thanks
and patronage of all Christian scholars. We can
heartily commend,this work to all ministers and
others who are capable of reading'the New Testa
ment•in the tongue in 'which it was originally
delivered. We hope the day is not far distant
when ministers and Christian seholars Will not
only devote greater attention to the study of
Biblical Commentaries, but especially, to the
study of the original languages of Scripture.
Those who would study the diction of the New
Testament as a living idiom, employed as the
medium of social intercourse, and thereby under
„ inert! clearly and fully the mind of the
Spirit, cannot aPidy l iblAelVes too soon to this
work. The remaining volume will appear about
the let of June, when we will have something
more to say concerning its real character and
high value to all Who would read the Greek - Tit
tament forlitemselves. _
AGMS ' S HOPITODN'S BOILOOLS. AND HOLLIDAY'S.
By Mrs. Otiphani, , anthor of "Kate Stewart,"
&o. Boston : Gouda 4. Lincoln. Pitts
burgh: W. S. Renaud:
This little book is written in a very pleasant
and sprightly manner. The characters are true
to life, not too perfect' to be natural and real.
How many of us have felt kW, as little AIM% OZ
enford did, when some blessing which we hardly
dared:to hope . for has been granted , us, just-when
we were yielding to bitter thoughts and sinful
repinings, t , so sorry and ashamed, because so
glad ;" or rather thankful. The goodness of
God does lead some to repentance. How many
characers we meet with like kind Uncle James;
people who 'are alwayvtalking, and intending,
too, to do many great and good things, but too
indolent *go to' Work iinmediately ; who "`talk
so earnestly at night of what they mean
that they wake up •in the morning feeling almost
as though it were done ;" and thus go on till
death, which waits not, but comes before half
their good intentions have been executed. And
all will discover, sooner or later, as Agnes did,
that ,to be really happy and useful, they must
first seek the " one thing needful," They must
get a heart into theirlife. Our youthful readers,
and those of more mature years also, may perusd
this book with pleasure and profit.
TES PREOIOI7B SrONLS OF THE HBAVIINLY FOUlf-
DATOSS.',• Illustrative Selections in, Prose
and Verse. By Augusta Browne Garrett, author
of ".Musical: goy:positions," liandltcht, the
Young Artist," &c., &o. Pp. 328. New York:
Sheldon. Co. Pittsburgh : Tohn S. Davison.
The author of this volume seems to have
passed tlirough deep sorrows; but through the
mist of tears she has seen the immortal crown
held out to ns. The object of this work is to
raise our thoughts from the tomb, where they
are so much disposed to dwell, and enliven them
with bright visions of the New 'Jerusalem. It
consists of a series of reflections on some of the
figurative external ,beauti es of the Heavenly City,
by brief dissertations on the twelve• precious
stones on which are engraven the names of the
Apostles, and.which garnish the Foundations of
Heaven. The Bignifications which seem most ap=
propriate to each, are given, together with the
relative twits of Soripture, and, a few precious
gems of human thought, in both prose and verse,
having exclusive reference to the future life.
The names of the Apostles are engraven on the
foundations, in .the order of their calling. Ac
cording to this, the first foundation is Peter--•
Jasper—which signifies Divine mystery; the
second, Andrew— Sapphire —heavenly-minded=
nese; &e, throughout the entire . twelVe. The
name of each stone is supposed, by the author,
to signify dome; corresponding quality in the
Apostle whose name it bears. The design• ; is
edema, and we scarcely know of any other little
work that had so many sayings, in prose and verse,
to encourage amid theloils of life, and to cheer
the Christian heart with hope of heaven.

many things about each of them, and to tell our
readers the peculiarities and attractions of each,
but want of space denies us this privilege. We
can only say to them; that Mrs. Getty has , a fan
cy as delicate as attjof thernest German writers,
and writes under the inspiration of Christian
faith and, love. We can cheerfully say of these
volumes, with, the Literary
..churchman, that they
"stand alone in the sweetness of their stories,
the truth of their moral, and the simple beauty
of their language." Their perusal will benefit
parents, gladden the fireside, and improve the
heads and hearts of the children. We hope Mrs.
Getty will write many More suck 'little hooks,
that the Carters will publish them its neatly, and
that the thousands of families into which the
Banner goes, will become their possessors.

Notice by lamesW. Alexander, D. D. Second
Edition Revised. Pp. 370. New York: Robert
Carter d• Brothers. Pittsburgh: John S. Davi
'son. 1859. -
The fact that: a second edition of this work his
been called'for so Soon, is not only an indication
of the interest taken in the subject of which it
treats,,but also most decisive testimony in favor
of .the manner of treatment by' the author. The
opponents of the Scriptural doctrine of the unity
Of mankind'may be arranged under two general
divisions. The,first and lower 'class, represented
by Nett' and qliddon, deny the specific unity of
mankind; the second, and higher class, consists
of 'Agassiz and his . followers, who, while tut
mitting the opecific.. unity of mankind, deny its
common origin.' This book is a eonclusive.refutaT
tionof both classes, by most conclusive proofs:
Itconsists of n: summary of the conclusions an
nounced by the highest. authorities in the several
departments. of Physiology, Zoology, and Com
parative Philology in favor of the apictfic unity
and common. origin •of all' the- varieties of men.
This : volume is the very-one for those who wish
fobectrae actinainted :With ..the present" state of
thisimportant question, and-to learn , the abund
44eitimoity .14' Which the 'Scriptural pesitien is

This is one of the most valuable contributions
tolhe department of Mental Philosophy, which
the present-generation has r eceived. The well
grounded fame - of the late Professor of Philoso
phy in the. Metropolitan University of Scotland,
will be consolidated and extended by the publica
tion of these leetures. The position which Sir
William occupied in the Department of Meta
physics, is well known in the literary world.
When Hume, following in the wake of Bishop
Berkeley, bad carried. the idealism of that re
nowned Pfillosopher a stage further than the
learned Prelate had ever contemplated, and oast
a shade of d.oubt over'the existence of the world
and things therein, the Scottish mind was stirred
to its inmost depths. Beattie, in his celebrated
Essay on Truth, did battle against the skeptic)
with much shrewdness, having an eye, to the es
pecial interests of Religion. Reid, however, was
the intellectual giant who grasped the Metaphys
ical difficulty, and in , his "Enquiry into the Hu
man Mind," boldly
the demonstrations of
Hume by an appeal to actual facts. His victory
was instantaneous, complete, and decisive I
Sir William alma especially at doing honor to
the principles of the Perceptive Philosophy. The
student of the volume before us, will have abund
ant proof of the author's wonderful acquaintance
with the learning of antiquity, with the produc
tions of the-human mind during all the centuries
of the deri ages, and with the whole Circle of
modern literature, Continental, Arahic, and Turk
ish, as well as British, since the era of the Re=
formation. Our space will not enable Its to go
into a detailed review of the positions which we
might venture to controvert, and we must close
by Obsdrving that, although these lectures labor
under the misfortune of being posthumous, still
they present the mature views of the author, who
maintained the principles which are here pub-
Halted, until the close of his life. = The duties nf
the editors have been discharged with great
learning and much judgment. Mr. Veitch• is one
of the most profound students that passed through
Sir William Hamilton's class; and Professor
Monad has already in his Hampton Lectures and
other published works, asserted his ability to take
rank with the most eminent metaphysicians of the
age. We doubt not but that this work will com
mand a deservedly great circulation.

"The Big Runaway."
MESSRS. EDITORS visited on the 18th
of February, an old lady who lives a few
miles from Jersey Shore, Pa., and is now in
the, ninety-second year of her age. She
was one of the vast crowd that thronged the
way along the waters of the Susquehanna,
to the interior of the settlement, in the
Suramer of 1778. I was interested in the
history of that period, and introduced the
subject. She narrated many personal incl.
dents, and among others, that of an aged fe
male carrying the " baby " of her daughter,
whohad a healed breast, remarkably swelled.
In passing a spring, she was unable to stoop
or lie down to drink as others did or had to
do; but the mother laid down the child, and
dipped up in her hands and gave her.
The narrator's own mother, who was driv
ing four cows, while her children took pas.
sage in a canoe,, became lost in the crowd,
and lived one or two days by milking in her
hand and drinking.
A friend who was with me, asked what
number she supposed was on their way down
the river. She said she might
. as , well at
tempt a guess at the number of drops falling
from a eland. Coming from the hills and
valleys, the lanes and roads were filled, and
at night the barns and fields. These are
some of the incidents that fastened them
selves on the Memory •of a child eleven or
twelve years of age. Her opportunity of
seeing 'the •vast'rntiltitude, was geod - ; for,
some,time,previous, to the general runaway,
her mother, withthe smaller Members of the
family were moved down the river for safety,
to a place near Northumberland, and upon
the alarm, had the .start, end went as far as
Pfoutz's Valley, where they stopped tcrwait
for the rest of the family ; upon the arri
val of'Which,' the whole family returned to
Northuniberland, at which place they re
relined until Fall; when, as many of the
citizens of the town began to return and
claim their' vacated bonne, they removed
down the river to Middletown, eight miles.
below Harrisburg, where they remained till
the close of the w'ar. The' news Of the
massacre at Wyoming, hastened, the flight
on the West Branch. A runner was sent
up at great hazard, to give information to
the people who were already gathered into
It may, be both interesting and profitable
to the present generation, to know some
thing of the trials and hardships of their
forefathers, and I do not suppose they can
be more graphiailly set before the mind
than by the few extracts I shall make from
letters of that date, preserved in the "Penn
eylvania Archives," and which were pub
'jihad a few years , ago. You will see by
these extracts, that while a large majority of
the people of the West Branch passed on , to
the interior of the settlement, some of the
fugitives stopped at Northumberland—not
with a view, of family, or, personal converd
once and safety, but for its defence, and
were influenced by the same motives of pa
triotism that was common to a majority of
the people of those times:

This is a thorough and masterly examination of the
teaching of the Bible on the future condition of the Im
penitent. It refutes with rare candor and ability the errors
current in our day on Universal Salvation, and the future
Restoration or Annihilation of the Wicked. It is a most
valuable and timely contribution to religious literature.

" The total number of cases of Phthisie treated by me
amounts to thirty-Eve. Ail were either in the second or
third stages of the complaint; that is, they bad either
softened tubercles or cavities in the• lungs of these, nine
recovered completely, the physical dens of the disease dis

improved . considerably; and fourteen died. The results
will be found to justify the following conclusion,:
"The, proximate cause, or at all events an essential con

system of the phosphorus which it contains in an oxygeni

a preparation of phosphorus, uniting the two conditions,

and at the same time at the lowest possible degree of oxy
" The effects of these salts upon the tubercular diathesis
is immediate ; all the general symptoms of the disease dis
appearing with a rapidity which is really marvelous. If
the pathological deposit produced by the dyscracy in of re

not proceed too rapidly, the tubercles are re-absorbed and
disappear. When the softening bee attained a certain de
gree, it sometimes continues in spite of the treatment; and
the issue of the disease then depends upon in anatomical
condition of the local lesion, on its extent, and upon the
existence or non-existence of complications. I have ma&
numerous attempts to modify the local condition of the
lungs by the Inhalation of-different substances, but have
never obtained any satisfactory , result independent of what
was to be attributed to the specific treatment. The Hypo
phosphites axe certain prophylactics against tubercular

have a bm-fold action; on the one band they increase the
principle, whatever that may be, which constitutes ner

several functions concerned in alimentation and nutrition.
They seem to possess, to the highest

which attends the use of that enbetance. The different

occupy one of the mast important places in the Biennia
