terbuch. Von Jacob Grimm und Wilhelm Grimm. Leipzig: Hirzel.) Anything more minute, anything more full, cannot be conceived. Here are presented in the most condensed state, the reliable results of recent philological study, so far at least as the German language and kindred tongues are concerned. The work forms an epoch and will produce a revolution in lexicography.

Lastly, we mention a work, the publication of which (like the preceding) has but just commenced, but which also gives the highest promise, namely, a theological or general Church Dictionary, (Real-Encyklopädie für Protestantische Theologie und Kirche; Stuttgart, Scheitlin,) in the composition of which are engaged the highest names of the more moderate schools in Germany; such as Lepsius, the distinguished Egyptologist; Gieseler, Hagenbach, Lücke, Julius Müller, Nitzsch, Twesten, Ullmann, Umbreit, Tholuck, &c.; all men of the most varied and profound acquirements, whose united efforts are producing a summary of theological and ecclesiastical knowledge, which will command attention from all scholars, will offer instruction to conscientious and truth-loving students, and which, by exhibiting the positive results of the German theological studies of the last fifty years, cannot fail to disabuse the mind of those who think that German theology is little else than another name for scepticism, if not disbelief. Here we have the Voices of the Church' of Luther, expressed in the most deliberate, authoritative, and emphatic manner, which combine to declare that the foundations of our faith stand firm, after assaults the most various and the most determined, and which put into the hands of every diligent student (acquainted with German) the means of ascertaining for himself that important fact, as well as resources wherewith to meet and confute the objections which are circulated in England within the covers of extreme and second-rate publications.

** Dr. Donaldson has written to us, complaining of criticisms relating to himself in our last number-especially of an insinuation that he has claimed as his own a theory or opinion about the pronunciation of quidem,' (273.) The answer of our contributor, in reply to the remarks of Dr. Donaldson generally, is full and satisfactory, but it is due to Dr. Donaldson to cite the terms of the reply in regard to the above point. My sentence is not an insinuation,' but an open and direct charge-made conditionally, however, on the presumed correctness of Mr. Paley's quotation. Had I not been writing from a remote village, I should certainly have taken pains to collate the precise words employed by Dr. Donaldson, and I admit that I should then have used different language.'

We are obliged to our friends in Aberdeenshire. The scribe, Mr. William M'Combe, of Cairnballach, is not the only generous and amiable person who, on finding that he could not be allowed to inflict his dulness upon our readers, has made discoveries of this sort concerning us.
