Expositor. Edited by the Rev. W. Robertson Nicoll, M.A. (Nodder and Stoughton.)—Five papers on the "Revised Version of the Old Testament" by Messrs. Jennings and Lowe, and four by Professor Driver, are among the most important contributions to the present number. Dr. Alexander Maclaren continues his comments on "The Epistle to the Coloesians ;" and Professor Godet (of whom there is an excellent etched portrait by way of frontispiece to the volume) contributes two papers on "The Epistles to the Corinthians."— The Antiquary, a magazine devoted to the study of the past (Elliot Stock), has reached its twelfth volume (completing its sixth year). We wish it prosperity and long life.—The Proceedings of the Society for Psychical Research, Vol. IX. (Trilbner and Co.)—About half of the present number is occupied by a "Report on Phenomena connected with Theosophy." The report is most distinctly adverse to the genuineness of the alleged phenomena.
