The Scots Magazine, into which the Scottish Church was recently

developed, is this month weak in fiction and strong in general articles. Of the contents of this number," Church Music in Early Presbyterian Scotland," and the first of a series on " Richard Baxter," are especially worth reading. It also contains a poem, slightly above the average, on poor, luckless David Gray. Its author should, however, bear in mind that in the English language, as distinguished from the Scotch dialect," corner " does not rhyme with "mourner."
