HPHE INSTRUCTOR; a Progressive Class ■*- Book for Children in Public and Private Schools and Families.

Under the general title of the Instructor. or Paooaxssivx Class Rook, Is comprised a series of little works, by means of which children may be led through a course of Exercises in various branches of Elementary Knowledge. These books may lie put into the hands of children who have advanced so far as to be able to spell common words, and to read easy lessons. The Instructor is, indeed, somewhat in advance of this class of scholars; but the object is, to carry the pupil forward,—to

Impart information, and to exercise the mind—aa well as to furnish reading exercises. As the series advances, the subjects will gradually rise, though, of corns*-, care will be taken to keep them uitliiu the comprehension of the children for whom they are designed.

Each of the books will be complete iu Itself, but every six numbers will be collected Into, aud sold as, a volume, as well as iu the form of separate books.

JOURNAL

OF IHB

ROYAL ASIATIC SOCIETY

GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND.

The Council, desirous of circulating as widely as possible, many of the important communications from time to time received by the Royal Asiatic Society, has determined upon the establishment of a periodical Journal, to be exclusively devoted to matters connected with the objects of the Society. By this arrangement, the regular publication of a considerable mass of valuable information is provided for, which, from the popular nature of a periodical Journal, is thereby rendered easily accessible to the Public at large, while an extensive circulation, in proportion to the interest which appertains to every thing relating to the Countries of the East, is secured, both in this country and abroad.

It is intended to publish the Journal in the Octavo form, at intervals of three months; each number containing about two hundred pages of letter-press, with such Illustrations as mav be necessary. The contents of the quarterly part are intended to

comprise First, Original Essays or Papers; Secondly,

Abstracts of such Papers as it may not be necessary to print

entire; Thirdly, Analyses of Works connected with the

objects of the Society, which, from their scarcity or other causes,

it may be deemed proper to make more generally known;

Fourthly, Notices of the Proceedings of the Royal Asiatic Society; its Branch and Auxiliary Societies; of the OriEntal Translation Committee, and of Other Institutions either British or Foreign, of the same nature, as far as they may

be attainable; and, Lastly, a Record of Miscellaneous

Information on subjects of Literature, Philosophy, Science, and Art, having reference to the East.

7\ is assumed that this plan will enable the Council to produce Papers of more general interest, and of a more diversified character," than those which formerly appeared'in the Transactions of the Society. The periods of publication, also, being definite and frequent, will afford the means of rendering available many valuable contributions on matters of local or temporary, but, nevertheless, of considerable importance, which have, hitherto, been entirely lost to the Public'for the want of some such channel to make them known, and it is conceived, that the Society's Journal may thus become a repository for whatever of value or interest may require to be promulgated. The researches of the learned into the History and Customs of the nations of the East, and their investigations into the remaining Monuments of early and extensive Civilization, may here be placed in contsnst with the labours of those who prefer to trace the progress of improvement in the present day, or to suggest the means by which that improvement may be accelerated and enlarged. The deductions of philosophy may be compared with the results of experience, and the theories of the speculative may lead to measures of practical utility.

The First Number contains the following Articles, with many Illustrations:

VIII. A transcript ill Roman rlmntrters with a rr.uislallon, of a Manifesto in the Chineae language, issued liv the Triad Soeietv. liv the iter. Dr. M.kkiso!,, F R.S. M.lt.A.S.'

rPHOUGHTS on the ADMISSION of PERSONS,

of that nature. Although I then felt that,
on the grounds just stated, I should be
warranted in publicly expressing the re-
sult of my reflections, on a point of so
much importance, yet the sort of contro-
versy which had been excited deterred me
from taking such a step. I am, however,
now satisfied that it would be a derelic-
tion of duty, to suffer the occasion to pass
away, without recording my opinions on
the matter in dispute.

St occurred to me, not long ago, when turning iu my mind the admission of nervous to certain Academical Degrees, without any regard to religious tenets, that the sentiments of one who, for many years after he became a Master of Arts, filled the office of a College Tutor,—has ever since dovoted his time and attention to the service of the University,—and, what Is of some moment, has throughout life stood aloof from political contention,— anigtt deserve consideration, ou a subject

The practical questions on which the Author has endeavoured in this Treatise to throw light, are chiefly three :—

1st. Are Oaths in themselves lawful to a Christian? or are they altogether prohibited by the Gospel?

2nd. If Oaths are in thenrwlvMUaw ful, are they, as at present administered aud taken in Rn^laud, calculated to promote truth and justice? And are they agreeable to the religion which we profess?

3rd. If any alterations in our system of Oaths should appear desirable, on what principles, and by what means, {may such changes be most safely aud satisfactorily affected?

In the remarks and suggestions which the Author has ventured to offer on the present state of Oaths in England, the principle by which he professes to hare been guided is this,—that whilst change, generally speaking, is, in itself, an evil, and is, therefore, never to be adopted lightly, or for its own sake, nevertheless, it is the office not of hatred but of love, not of unkindness but of friendship, not of rashness, but of judgment, first to inquire with diligence for the safest and least painful remedy of any evil under which the objects of our care and regard may be labouring, and then to recommend the cure with tenderness bat with honesty. .
