and the aberra Before we cous acquaintesc

We must here close our notice of this interesting pamphlet, We recommend it to the serious perusal of all those who are disposed to contribute to the enlargement of Mr, Lancaster's plan. We repeat that his method of instructing has our hearty approbation, and we most ardently wish to see it universally adopted; but, as ORTHODOX CHURCHMEN, we enter our protest against the laxity of religious principles taught in his school, and the aberration from the doctrine of the Church, too

visible in it. Before we conclude, we beg to thank · Mrs. Trimmer for bringing us acquainted with a most • excellent tract, “ Dr. Talbot's Christian Schoolmaster;"

it is one of those which are admitted into the list of books distributed by the Society for promoting Christian Knowledge. We earnestly recommend, that a copy of it be put into the hands of the teacher of every charity-school throughout the kingdom ; and we beg leave to press a sia milar distribution of the book' which follows it in the Society's Catalogue, written by the author of the “ Comparative View;" we mean, Mrs. Iriminer's Teacher's "As. sistant."

POETRY,

ODE ON CHRISTMAS-DAY, ..

W HAT glowing beams the Heavens adorn!

W. What mysic hails the rising morn!

What angel songs are these!
Hark! the loud notes from grlden lyres,
Attun'd to Seraphs' glowing fires,

Proclaim “ the Prince of Peace!”

Is. ix.

In strains like these, the wond’rous plan
Of peace and pardon seal’d to man,

The opening heavens proclaim;
Bid earth rejoicing own the God
Jeroyan ! at whose awful nod

Arose her beauteous frame,

John i.
Heb. i 2.

. In Empyrean realms of light, Grown vocal with the new delight

Angelic natures know. • To God be glory! God is love ! Lo peace and mercy smiling move,

To dwell with men below!

New springs the thirsty plains o’erflow,
In the soft bonds of concord go.

The lyon and the pard.
With timid lambs; the tyger's led.
In silken bands, by infants fed ; ;

So sung the raptur'd bard.

Is. xi. 6.
Oh, for the lyre of Israel's king!
To rapture waking every string,
When mercy's themes inspire,

Ps. cx. and xlv.
To hail the Saviour's natal morn,
Whose “ Rays of Righteousness” adorn. Malachi iv. 2,

This prophet's hallowed fire.

His charming voice obey!
Who feeds you with a shepherdlove,
With light below, with life above,

Is. vii, 14. Is. xl. 3. Matt. xxix. 1

Why doth not Israel own her God? · Who bears the royal Judah's rod,

Whom all the prophets sing ;
Levi! behold the Virgin's Son,
Elias see before him run,

Proclaiming Israel's King!
Oh Solyma! thy Son's no more
In the bright portals shall adore

Once heaven's adopted race; ...
No more in spiry columns rise. .

Thine altars' incence to the skies, - Circling the throne of grace.

A race more lov'd shall now impart

Truths that shall purify the heart, ' Thy shadowy forms defacc;'

Through the glad isles the tidings bear * Which Israel's sons refus’d to hear,

* Her banners o'er their heads shall wave,
Faith's shield be theirs, so strong to save,

Whose adamants confound
The blunted arrows of the foe, in
The daring infidel would throw

As fiery bolts around.
Salvation's helm be theirs ! Divine
With“ rays of righteousness” shall shine

The heav'n-defended breast;
Theirs be the Spirit's flaming sword,
The holy oracles, whose word
.iShall guide the soul to rest.
Such powers, Almighty God, are thine!
Illuminę still with grace divine in
" Thy vot'ries' hearts; and give
What thou alone canst give to man," ,
