ADVERTISEMENT.

The following Sermons, with one exceptiona, were preached by the revered Author to his village flock at Hursley, and that mostly between the years 1840 and 1855, when he began to preach extempore. “After that time, or at least 1856, there are," I am informed, “very few finished sermons. Up to that time, they are as a rule perfectly finished.”

Being preached then between the time when he had nearly finished his forty-ninth year and his sixty-fourth, they represent the teaching, which, with the experience of years spent among his people, and of his own advancing age, he thought most adapted to their needs. They are specimens, mere fragments of his teaching. They were poured forth from the pastor's heart; for (as usual in his early days) the days upon which they were preached are marked upon them, and one third only were preached a second time, one only, thrice. Of tñe rest, some he gave away; of one remarkable series, on the penitential Psalms, (preached upon the Wednesdays and Fridays in Lent) all but one are lost. The one which remained has a notice that it was to be finished on the following Friday, and referred to other sermons, on Ashwednesday, and the intervening Friday. The rest of the series has been carefully sought for, in vain.
