D. 1827, Josiah Priest of the said district, hath deposited in this office the title of a book, the right whereof he claims as author in the words following, to wit: "A view of the expected Christian Millennium, which is promised in the Holy Scriptures, and is believed to be nigh its commencement, and must transpire before the conflagration of the heavens and the earth; embellished with a chart of the dispensations from Abraham to the end of time. And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.-Rev. xx. 4.

1st. An account of the term Millennium, its import and
meaning,

2d. Shall show that such a period was expected, by the pro-
phets, the Jewish Rabbins, and doctors, as the grand ultimo
of the Messiah's reign on earth-and is now in expectan-
cy, by the churches, according to the scripture promises,
3d. Shall give a view of the wonderful signs of the times
which preceded the great deluge and the birth of Christ:
a curious and interesting account of Herod the Great, who
put to death the infants of Jerusalem. Also a minute de-
scription of the Ark, and of the animals saved in it-prov-
ing it amply sufficient to contain all the scriptures state it did, 53
4th, Shall exhibit the signs of our own times which clearly
indicate the Millennium nigh at hand, but must be prece-
ded, by one of its effects, of the power of the great God;
such as man has not witnessed since the world began,

5th. Shall represent the probable state of the wicked part of
mankind, just previous to the Millennium; in which divi-
sion will be given an account of Rome pagan and Rome
papal, which subjects are signified in the 13th and 17th
chapters of Revelations,

[ocr errors]

6th. The way and manner considered, in which God will pro-
bably remove the wicked from the earth, that the Millenni-
um may commence, for they shall not see that glorious sun
arise, nor enter that land of promise,

7th. Will show when the Millennium will come, by a view of
the ancient Jewish Sabbaths, an exhibition of which is ex-
ceedingly interesting, in reference to that day. And as
analagous to the same point, shall present a view of natural
and supernatural periodical recurrences. And shall give an
illustration of the three visions in the book of Daniel as far
as they refer to the time when the sanctuary shall be clean-
sed, or when the Millennium shall arrive,

th. An account of the first resurrection, and the subsequent
happiness of all people; with which will be connected ar-
guments to prove that all moral and natural evil shall cease
a thousand years from the earth; and that it was the origi-
nal intention of the Creator to clothe our first parents,
whether they stood or fell,
9th Division embraces a position that man when he fell, lost
his extraordinary power or government over the animal
kingdom, and became exposed to their natural fury, but in
the Millennium shall recover his government again,
10th Division contains arguments to prove, that neither the
disposition nor death of the animal creation was affected
by man's fall into sin, as is believed by many, but the true
reason of their death is assigned,

287

11th. The sentiment which embraces the opinion, that all the
animal creation shall arise from the dead, to be remunera-
ted for their suffernigs, which by some is said to be occa-
sioned by the sin of man, refuted,

305

12th Division exhibits a view of the vast multiplication of
mankind during the Millennium, and of their political state:
also who they are who will attempt to make war upon the
camp of the saints, called Gog and Magog; and why Sa-
tan must be loosed for a little season after the Millennium
is passed by and in what manner it is likely they will at-
tempt their attack of the saints,

13th Division embraces a view of the resurrection of the
wicked dead after the Millennium, and their miserable con-
dition; and endeavours a description of the earth's dissolu-
tion, and in what manner the elements will operate on
each other, so that a general conflagration may take place,
and what shall be its final end,

14th Division embraces a view of the promised new creation,
which is to succeed the destruction of this system.
"And
he that sat upon the throne said, Behold I make all things
new." Rev. xxi. 5,
