From Rev. Wm. R. Williams, D D.-The new edition of Benedict's Hist seems to the subscriber a book of much value. He has made large extracts fr the history of the Mennonite Martyr.. From the great scarcity of the work wh furnishes these, the extracts will, to our churches have, besides their own intr sie interest, the additional charm of novelty. As to the Baptists of the U. Stat he has, with laborious fidelity, compiled a mass of historical and statistical inte gence no where else to be found, and which would, in the judgment of the su scriber, make his volume almost indispensable to every one of our pastors, a abundantly deserving of the patronage and study of our churches.

TRACTS FOR THE PEOPLE-No. XXXII.
DESIGN OF BAPTISM-No. I.
EVERY divine institution has its own specific design. They all indeed, have one grand general design;-the glory of God and the happiness of man. But as neither the glory of God, nor the happiЯess of man consists in one item or in one manifestation, his precepts and our acts of obedience are necessarily both numerous and various. Nature and religion being the offspring of the same supremely wise and benevolent mind, may be supposed to carry in them conclusive evidence of the same divine original. Hence, the numerous and various parables and allusions to nature on the part of the great Teacher, while developing that gracious institution, of which he is the beginning, middle, and end.
Now as in nature no one ordinance or institution can become a substitute for another, so in Christianity, no one ordinance can either be dispensed with or substituted for another, but at the detriment and loss of the subject. There is a specific virtue in every ordinance of religion, as in every ordinance of nature. There is no substitute for air, light, heat, or moisture, in either the vegetable or animal kingdom; and there is no substitute for faith, repentance, and baptism in the present dispensation of grace. It is not for us to ask, nor is it due to us from God, to give the reason why. He ordains and commands blessings to be bestowed in his own way, and it is alike our duty and our happiness implicitly to obey and enjoy them. We have only to ascertain the fact that God has so commanded, and our duty then is to obey.
All the ordinances of Christianity are means of grace. Faith, repentance, baptism, the Lord's day, the Lord's supper, the church and its ministry are all means of grace. There are, indeed, many graces requisite to the completion and perfection of Christian charSERIES III.-VOL. VI.
