justice to the work and credit to themselves; and the proprietor and publisher have merited all praise for the style in which they have issu. ed it from the press. We advise all who can afford it, to buy it. It will do them good, if in no other way, by leading them carefully to read and compare the new with the old version, and the truth which both contain will be thus more firmly riveted on the ruind.

It is published by J. B. Lippincott, corner of Fourth and Race streets, and it is sold at prices va ing from $3 to $10, according to the style of execution. The price is moderate for the quality of the work. R.

A BAPTIST NEW VERSION.

AMONG the good omens of an influx of light, is the attempt of the Baptists to give a true version of the Bible to the heathen abroad, and to improve the common version at home. A part of the denomination are in favor of the American people having a true version; but they all agree in giving one to the Asiatic population. It is, indeed, a species of logical benevolence which I pretend not to understand, that gives reasons numerous, clear, and strong, why American readers should not have, and Asiatic readers should have, a true Bible!

Of course I cannot but feel gratified that one of my great sins in attempting to circulate a new and true version of certain controverted points, is now becoming the great sin of a respectable portion of the Baptist community; and consequently my heterodoxy will fast pass away as the Baptists succeed in prepossessing the commnnity in favor of a new, correct, and more intelligible version of the good book. I will not now remind them of all the reproaches wherewith they reproached me some twenty years ago when I undertook this work. I hope that all the denominations will unite in this effort, let Paidobaptists say what they may. They will approve them at last.

BIBLE SOCIETY.

I AM, I believe, a member and a director for life of both the American Bible Societies, I having paid into their treasuries the sum of 200 dollars each. I do not think that they have done all that is right to me; but still I believe they are engaged in a great and good work, and I assist them both. I would, indeed, most pressingly recommend it to the pious and benevolent consideration of all our brethren to contribute freely and liberally to the Baptist American and Foreign Bible Society. Help them to send a true and intelligible Bible to all the world that needs it at home and abroad. This charter of life and

immortality, of heaven and eternity to man, ought to be translated and
sent to every Indian, Pagan, Barbarian, Turk, Jew, Atheist, and
Sceptic under heaven. We have no society to do any thing for us
to receive or forward our donations. Do then, brethren, remember
that our more intelligent, pious, and benevolent Baptist brethren are
engaged in this good work, and let us help them forward in the Lord's
cause and in that of our common humanity. Blessing others, you
shall be blessed; and watering them, you shall be watered in turn.

BETHANY COLLEGE.

We believe it due to the friends and patrons of Bethany College that the whole financial affairs of the Institution should be occasionally published for their satisfaction. Those who contribute to the erection and support of any institution have a right to be informed of the use and application of their liberality. We should have sooner made such a report; but, really, we have been somewhat ashamed to make a public display of how little has yet been done for the noble objects (as all admit) for which the liberality of the Christian brother hood and benevolent public has been solicited. I know the time— the HARD times are a standing apology for all such failures and disappointments. Some, I presume, will not like to see their contributions published; but, in justice to ourselves, the College and the community, it becomes our duty to do so. But it ought to be stated that a number have said that their contributions were but a mere token of good will, and that they intended farther aid. Should there be any error or omission in the Report, as ordered to be printed, we will have it corrected immediately on information thereof.

It is but two years since the first brick was moulded for the ereetion of Bethany College. During this time a College Proper, four stories, 83 by 45; a Steward's Inn, equal to 107 feet by 36, 4 stories have been completed; and one wing of a Mansion House, 73 feet by 24, two stories, will be completed about the 1st of September.
