The juftice of the above eulogium, pronounced by this zealous brother, we certainly will not undertake to difpute: to the myteries of the bed and the trowel we are entirely ftrangers but the immediate inftitution, which this difcourfe regards, appears, like many others, to be of the beneficent and useful kind. The preacher recommends it to attention, with energy, argument, and affection. His text is, Heb. xiii. 1. Let brotherly love continue.-Perhaps he might have fome refpect, in this choice, to his connections with the Craft; however, he employs it to plead for an extenfion of their bounty to the object directly propofed.-Though the science of thefe focieties is far too profound for our abilities, we may venture to express our diflike of the allufions which have fometimes been made to masonry in the prayers attending thefe difcourfes :-but little of this appears in the prefent performance, efpecially when compared with other publications of the kind. Surely, however, it is always unfuitable to that reverence which ought to accompany our humble addreffes to the SUPREME BEING!


Art. 53. The Duty of Obedience to thofe in Authority, and the Mo-
tives to perfuade us to the Obfervance of it. 8vo. I S.

The good old doctrine of the divine right of kings is here main-
tained, as the only principle which can effectually fupport autho-
rity, filence the murmurs of difcontent, and weaken the hands of
rebellion. The preacher might have fpared himself the trouble
which he has bestowed on this obfolete argument. If men are now
to be kept in fubjection to the powers that be, they must be actuated
by other confiderations than the fear of damnation.
Art. 54. Chriftian Benevolence. On John, xiii. 35.

To which

is added a Letter relating to the Establishment of Sunday Schools
in the Corporation of Richmond, (York.) By Anth. Temple,
M. A. Mafter of the Grammar School at Richmond, and Vicar
of Eafby. 4to. pp. 28. 15. Baldwin. 1791.

A plain and ufeful difcourfe on a topic, which, however fami-
liar, is too important to be ever unfeafonable. Though the publi-
cation is apparently intended to recommend the inftitution of Sun-
day-schools, the author has referved the particular difcuffion of this
fubject to the letter fubjoined; in which he reprefents, in ftrung
terms, the neceflity of fuch an establishment in the parish where the
fermon was preached.
