In Sacram ANCHORAM PISCATORIS, G. HERBEIT.
· Although the cross could not Christ here detain,
Though nailed unto it, but he ascends again,
TRANSLATED OUT of Gazæus.
Vota Amico facto, fol. 160. God grant thee thine own wish, and grant thee mine, Thou who dost, best friend, in best things outshine: May thy soul, ever cheerful, ne'er know cares; Nor thy life, ever lively, know gray hairs; Nor thy hand, ever open, know base holds ; Nor thy purse, ever plump, know plaits or folds ; Nor thy tongue, ever true, know a false thing; Nor thy words, ever mild, know quarrelling; Nor thy works, ever equal, know disguise ; Nor thy fame, ever pure, know contumelies; Nor thy prayers know low objects, still divine God grant thee thine own wish, and grant thee mine.
Hymy to God, my God, IN MY SICKNESS. SINCE I am coming to that holy room
Where with the choir of saints for evermore
I tune the instrument here at the door,
Cosmographers, and I their mass, who lie
That this is my south-west discovery Per fretum febris, by these straits to die.
I joy that in these straits I see my west ;
For though those currents yield return to none, What shall my west hurt me? as west and east
In all flat maps (and I am one) are one, So death doth touch the resurrection.
Is the Pacific Sea my home? or are
The eastern riches? Is Jerusalem, Anyan, and Magellan, and Gibraltar?
All straits, and none but straits are ways to them, Whether where Japheth dwelt, or Cham, or Sem,
We think that paradise and calvary,
Christ's cross and Adam's tree, stood in one place; Look, Lord! and find both Adams met in me:
As the first Adam's sweat surrounds my face, May the last Adam's blood my soul embrace. So in his purple wrapped receive me, Lord !
By these his thorns give me his holy crown; And as to others' souls I preached thy Word,
Be this my text, my sermon to mine own ; Therefore, that he may raise, the Lord throws down.
JOHN W. PARKER, WEST STRAND.

ELIZABETHAN RELIGIOUS HISTORY. By HENRY
SOAMES, M.A., Author of The History of the Reformation; The Anglo-Saxon
Octavo, 16s. This work is intended to fill a long-acknowledged chasm in English literature, and especially in that which peculiarly concerns the Church of England. Both Romanists and Protestant Dissenters have been attentive to the important reign of Elizabeth, and by saying very little of each other, have given an invidious colouring to both the Church and the Government. The present work is meant to give every leading fact in sufficient detail, but to avoid unnecessary particulars. It reaches from the establishment of the Thirty-nine Articles, in 1563, to the Hampton-Court Conference, in 1604.
