This is the third instalment of the work which M. Rénan seems to regard as his special calling, and for which he would seem to have the necessary leisure, since his public duties as Membre de l'Institut have ceased. It followed the second division, “The Apostles,” nearly after the same interval as this had followed the first, “The Life of Jesus." The book before us breathes exactly the same spirit as its two predecessors, and no one that has read with some care the first two productions of this fertile mind, could be at a loss as to the paternity of “St. Paul,” even if it did not bear on its titlepage the name of its author. This spirit is rather unique, and it is, accordingly, difficult, if not impossible, to rank Rénan with
any school that pursues or has pursued the same end. This spirit is not that of the English Deist of the last century, nor that of the Wolfenbüttel Fragmentist, both of whom saw in the Gospels and the other writings of the New Testament nothing but a tissue of lies ; nor is it that of the Rationalismus

This able and influential journal has now completed its forty-first year. It has ontlived sl religious quarterlies in being at the time of its origin, and is, with a single exception, the oldes quarterly of any kind in the country. This is a strong token of the soundness and vitality dil itu principles, and of the ability with which it has been conducted.
The Rev. CHARLES HODGE, D.D., and Rev. LYMAN H. ATWATER, D.D., associate editors, wil meeste the special co-operation of Rev. M. W. JACOBUS, D.D., Rev. WM. HENRY GREEN, D.D., Rer. Erwa HALL, D.D., President CHARLES A. AIKEN, Rev. John FORSYTH, D.D., and Rev. Wy. M. BLACKED D.D., while contributions are promised by others, including authors of the highest rank ani fata.
With these arrangements, it is intended that this Review shall not only retain the attribers which have made it a great power for good in the past, but that it shall be constantly improved a. amplified in the future.
While it will continue to support, with whatever ability it can command, the great system of doctrine defined in the Westminster symbols, which are adopted by all the Presbyterian bodies of America and Great Britain, and, to a considerable extent, by other communions, and to deal Ft science, philosophy, and literature at their points of contact with religion, it will labor earnests to cement and consolidate the Re-union of the Presbyterian Church in truth, charity, and unity: ad make it a blessing to the church and the world. Having been firmly established years before the schism of 1838, the Princeton Review will strive to do its part in moulding the future of the Re-miet Church in accordance with the standards which form the basis of the re-union.
A special aim of its editors will be to increase the number and variety of its articles in the practical department; to furnish new aid to pastors and others in charge of Christian and church work, for its effective organization and prosecution, by the thorough discussion of questinns relative to worship, preaching, pastoral visitation, Sunday-schools, revivals, missions, education, Christian beneficence and activity, church architecture and music; in short, whatever may be fitted to infuse intelligence, energy, and enterprise into any sphere of Christian life and action. In a word, it will aim to be a helper of ministers and intelligent laymen.
No efforts will be spared to extend and improve the department of criticism, and of accounts of new publications especially those relating to our common Christianity.
Its contributors, constantly increasing, now include some of the ablest writers in the American Church.
