if any persons, it is presumed, will have any difficulty in finding the more prominent subjects, as they find a word in the dictionary. The others, and indeed, whatever is in the work, can easily be founů by the index, which is full and particular. Where arguments, used on both sides of particular questions, are inserted, I have either divided the page horizontally, or by a row of stars, where the length is unequal.

I have aimed to make the Scripture Manual a kind of index to the Bible for those who are desirous to use the sword of the Spirit,” in resisting the errors and vices of the world-a handy reference work for the Bible class and sabbath school teacher and scholar--a ready lesson-book for children,whose parents can easily turn to the precepts and instructions respecting the duties and dangers of their offspringand above all, a handy table book for families who are desirous to be armed against the assaults of deceitful workers,” and to be found established in the first principles of the oracles of God." I now send forth the result of my assiduous labors, at a time when theological and moral inquirers were perhaps never more in need of being cautioned to take heed that they follow “ the light of the Lord," instead of the darkness of infidel " philosophy and vain deceit.” Certain I am, that we must turn from the light reading, novelty and trash that have of late so engrossed the attention of the public mind, to “ the lively oracles,” and become more familiar with the distinctive principles and features of the divinity, the or. der and ethics, which they teach, or we shall be carried away with the rising and raging floods of skepticism, vice, and wickedness.

N. B. The notices of this work are inserted at the end of the volume.
