The "London Letter" in the (Episcopalian) Church Standard of a recent issue, contains the following: "When Dr. Farrar exchanged his Westminster canonry. for a deanery he was succeeded at the Abbey by Mr. Wilberforce, and the marked resemblance between these gifted men is very curious. They are both natural orators, and masters of an almost incredible wealth of terms, admonitory, descriptive, derisive, and defiant. They have the same severity of mien, the same noble disregard of consequences, they both lack, and equally, the sense of proportion and the sense of humor."

In a sympathetic review of a book concerning Bible interpretation, the (Baptist) Examiner says: "Some things can only be describeu poetically, and written accounts of them recognized when their poetical character is recognized. The truth is that half the difficulties and half the controversies of the world have been caused by prosiac-minded men. who turn poetry into prose. They are like the dog in the fable, who dropped the meat to grasp the shadow; for they lose not only the truth, but also the sweet symbol which was its constant witness."
