The “Spirit and Manners of the Age,” is an English periodical, devoted to the interest of literature and religion. A series of essays under the title of the “Modern Martyr," was commenced in the first number of this work, and carried on at intervals for several months. At last it ceased altogether, from some cause unknown in this country, most probably, however, from the death of its author, as though the work goes on with regularity and interest, the particular article, “Modern Martyr,” has never been finished. The author is the same who prepared the Evangelical Rambler, which has been received with so much favour. We have collected the series as far as it went, in this small volume, and have added to it such other selections from the same work, as appeared to us peculiarly useful and important. We are confident that it all tends to the interest of pure and undefiled religion.
