heir is to be found, and the clergy ought to
feel grateful for the way in which Mr. Amphlett decides the question. At first we begin with a henpecked vicar, a Prondie among the inferior clergy, and it seems that the clergy are to be satirised ; but the curate redresses the balance. We are permitted to admire him for excellencies at once physical, moral, and spiritual, and when we find him falling in love with a most charm- ing young woman, the daughter of another clergyman, deceased, and further hear that she is the heiress of the estate, we feel that Mr. Amphlett is a true friend to the order. If things are going to be arranged in this way, it will be easy enough to bear Disestablishment. " Warnton Rings " is a tolerably readable tale, which does not attempt to deal with mach more than the outside of a very limited portion of English life.
