DR. HAWKER is now revising his COMMENTARY, with a view to the printing of a handsome 8vo edition with the Text at large: to be published by subscription.
We learn, with great satisfaction, that the religious public, which, for some time seemed insensible to the necessity and importance of the ECLECTIC REVIEW, have lately manifested the most encouraging approbation of that valuable work. The favourable testimonies to its increasing merit which the Conductors have received from eminent characters in the several walks of Literature, as well as from the more
respectable ministers, encourage the hopes that we have long entertained, of seeing the prevalence of many toxious publications supplanted by talent with evangelical purity and a work combining exalted literary simplicity.

I live:- one instant, and the present scene
"Will it appear in the high climes of bliss,
That owe their Heav'n to God's unchanging love,
That serves to strengthen Satan's reign within;
Search me, oh God! and try my froward heart!
FO THE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF WINCANTON,
TE friends of mercy, let your hearts expand;
Which waters earth, -
So shall a blessing on your names attend;
What name so blessed as "The Poor Man's Friend ?"
The means bestow to teach a rising race
No more let youth the Sabbath-day profane, —
Oh! what a harvest to our view is this!
from whom all blessings flow!"
CHRIST, THE BELIEVER'S ALL.
When my soul in gross darkness was closely shut up,
Now, I hope, since by grace I am light in the Lord,
When ambition inflames the proud heart after fame,
My highest ambition is Jesus to gain,
And enjoy him thro' time without end.
When the gaudy and gay, for the glitter of shew,
I'll rejoice, tho' in sorrow my life should be spent,
What dangers and troubles do many endure,
I'll risk all I have, yea my life I'll forego,
The profane may reproach me as long as I live,
When laid on the bed of affliction and death,
Their joys are all gone with the past;
But affliction prepares me for pleasures to come,
When conquer'd by death, and consign'd to the grave,
My bones rest in hope, while my soul wings its way
Where, with angels and saints, all embosom'd in bliss,
Till the voice of Jehovah burst open the grave,
Then embody'd again, and in glory complete,
Where, with all the redeem'd, Christ, my life, I will praise,
