Mrs. Mix's Thoughts on the Responsibility of Man, is a

series of discourses on the parable of the " talents ;" -applying the doctrine to Britons collectively, as well as individually. The public is charged with the responsibility of furnishing India and the Colonies with "the bread of life;" and in default, is warned of the fate of the Jews. Education is another matter on which we are advised to stir ourselves, as is an extension of the National Church. The Factory system is an abuse we had better see about ; and the "evangelizing" of Ireland, together with sundry other things theoretically very proper to be recommended, and very proper to be done, but somewhat difficult to enforce in prac- tice.
