Art: I. The Protestant's Companion. By the Rev. Charles ... Daubeny, .D. Archdeacon of Sarum.

. ..(concluded from page 233.) By the extracts which we have already given from this valuable Defence of the Protestant Church, our readers will have been able to form their own opinions concerning its merits. : For ourselves we confess, that we have seldom met with a controversial work which partakes so little of the spirit of controversy ; which is so calm in its manner, yet so decisive in its effect; and which puts down an adversary with less appearance of boasting and triumph.?.", · As a striking confirmation of this remark, we beg leave to refer to the satisfactory confutation which the Archdeacon has given of Mr. Baines's opinion' respecting the Israelitishi worship of the Golden Calf.:.. .. .? ::

In opposition to this theory, Dr. D. shews in the clearest manner that this species of idolatry consisted in setting up false and forbidden emblems of the true God, and that it constituted precisely the same kind of idolatry of which the Romish Church is guilty by its worship of Images, and its solemn use of devotional emblems.
