Vota Amico facto, fol. 160.
God grant thee thine own wish, and grant thee mine,
HYMN TO God, my GOD, IN MY SICKNESS. Since I am coming to that holy room
Where with the choir of saints for evermore I shall be made thy music, as I come
I tune the instrument here at the door, And what I must do then think here before.
Whilst my physicians by their love are grown
Cosmographers, and I their mass, who lie Flat on this bed, that by them may be shown,
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,
In all flat maps (and I am one) are one,
The eastern riches ? Is Jerusalem,
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 Church, &c.
Octavo, 16s. Tus 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.

GERMANY, BOHEMIA, and HUNGARY, visited in 1837. By
the Rev. G. R. GLEIG, M.A., Chaplain to the Royal Hospital, Chelsea. Threo Volumes, Post Octavo.
11. lls. 6d. The principal design of this work is to give some account of the state of society as it now exists in Bohemia and Hungary. In order to reach these countries, the Author was, of course, obliged to pass through a large portion of Germany, where the social condition of the people, as well as the civil, ecclesiastical, and military establishments, attracted his attention. Upon these he touches, more especially in reference to Prussia, towards which the eyes of the rest of Europe are at present anxiously turned. But his great design was to obtain and communicate information, respecting countries into which few Englishmen are accustomed to penetrate. Hence a large portion of his tour, both in Botemia and Hungary, was performed on foot ; and the acquaintance which he was thereby enabled to form with all ranks and conditions of the people, was at once more intimate and more familiar than could have taken place had he travelled by a more usual mode of conveyance. He looked into the cottage as well as the palace, and he has given some account of both.
