The three remarkable instances quoted answer to the definition of a type :-1st, they symbolized the antitype; 2ndly, they took place long before the circumstances they prefigured ; consequently were prophetical, although latently so, as far as is recorded by revealed inspiration of God's dispensation : 3rdly, Scripture expressly states that they were ordained as types. Yet in these, as in all types, every attendant circumstance must not be considered as part of the prefigurement of the antitype. Thus, the destruction of the Egyptians while essaying to follow Israel, by no means indicated the establishment of an exclusive ordinance. This idea would be in opposition to that conveyed in the gracious words of Christ, “ Come unto me, all ye that are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matt. xi. 28). Similar points of difference may be found in reference to the att nt circumstances of the other types.

3. “ In what passages of the New Testament are the following duties most strongly inculcated Self-denial, consistency, discretion, courteousness, loyalty, and diligence in temporal employment ?”

Self-denial :-Matt. V. 29, 30; vi. 19-24; xviii. 8, 9; xix. 12; Mark viii. 34, 35; ix. 43, 47; Luke xviii. 22 ; Rom. viii. 13; 1 Cor. ix. 27; x. 27 ; Col. iii. 5; Titus ii. 12, 13.

Consistency :-Rom. xiv. 5, 22; John ii. 4; 1 John ii. 4; iv. 20; 2 Cor. vi. 14, 15.

Discretion :- Titus ii. 4, 5; 1 Tim. iii. 5, 11, 12.

Courteousness :-Rom. xii. 10; Eph. iv. 32; John xiii. 35; 1 Peter iii. 8; Col. iii. 12.

Loyalty :-Heb. xii. 17; 1 Peter ii. 13, 14; Matt. xxii. 21; Rom. xiii. 1 ; Titus iii. 1.

Diligence in temporal employment :-Eph. iv. 28; Acts xx. 35 ; 1 Thess. iv. 11; 2 Thess. iii. 8, 11, 12.

4. “ Show from the Holy Scripture that the Holy Spirit is a person, and ought to be worshipped.”

The Rev. W. Jones, in his “ Catholic Doctrine of a Trinity,” has given no less than twenty-six arguments illustrative and in proof of what this question requires to be shown. We recommend the study of this valuable little work, published by the Christian Knowledge Society.

Spiritual birth is ascribed, without the change of a single letter, to God and to the Spirit, John iii. 6; 1 John v. 4; Divine authority is ascribed to the Holy Ghost, compare Acts xiii. 2; Heb. v. 4; Rom. i. 1; and Tim. i. 1. Christ has directed us to pray to the Holy Ghost as the Lord of the harvest. Compare Matt. ix. 38; Acts xiii. 4. The Holy Ghost is God and Lord to be blessed or praised. or praised. Compare

Compare Luke ii. 26 ; v. 28. “God the Spirit dwells in you.”—Compare John xiv. 17; 1 Cor. xiv. 25. Scripture given by inspiration of God, viz, of the Holy Ghost, compare 2 Tim. iii. 16 ; 2 Peter i. 21; also John vi. 45; 1 Cor. ii. 13, for the Spirit's teaching. Further, compare Acts v. 3. with v. 4; 1 John iii. 21, with 24; 1 Cor. iii. 16, with vi. 19; Matt. iv. 1, with Luke xi. 2–4; 2 Cor. i. 3, with Acts ix. 3 ; with John xiv. 26, with John iv. 24, and with

6, Deut. vi. 16; and Matt. iv. 7, with Acts v. 6, Gen. vi. 3, with 1 Peter iii. 20; Acts iv. 24, 25, with 2 Peter i. 21 ; and Luke i. 68, 70; Luke i. 32–35, where Christ is called the Son of God, because begotten by the Holy Ghost.

From the study of these passages cited, it may be inferred that the Holy Ghost, as a part of the Godhead, is to be worshipped. Passages in our Lord's history are numerous in which he inculcates prayer to God, i. e. to the Triune God, for the gift of the Holy Spirit, as in Luke xi. 13.-See“ Nicholls' Help.”

ANCIENT AND MODERN LANGUAGES.

Replies to the following papers could subserve no useful end, as the translation of a passage, and showing the infinitives of a few verbs, with the other requisites of the questions, would afford no clue to a similar performance in respect to another series of passages. To anticipate solicitous surmises already afloat in reference to the German and the Greek papers, it is necessary to be as explicit and candid as the importance of these languages to a teacher demands, and more so than the weight of the remarks deserves. We would not then be understood to assume the requisite philological knowledge to enable us, from our own personal resources simply, to furnish appropriate answers to all four of these papers. Our first idea was to obtain efficient assistance to supplement our deficiencies; but upon reviewing the papers themselves, it appeared that no useful aid could be afforded by the publication of the answers required. These papers are not analogous in character to the others of the series ; for to those who have a knowledge of the subject matter of the papers on these four languages, formal replies would be superfluous; and to the mere English reader they would be useless. Some of the preceding questions are open to similar objections, but the same cannot be said in reference to

any of the papers as a whole. It was not our intention when commencing this note-nor is it now to write a second preface; but still it appears requisite to state that, for the sake of completeness, it was desirable to give solutions, subservient to the general design of the performance, which in some other respects were scarcely needful. We publish the questions themselves, that the student may be forewarned of the kind of knowledge he must bring to bear on the determination of his position, as the result of an examination. The following works are among the best of their kind for the study of the subjects on which they treat; but the student is reminded of attempting the hopelessness of attaining useful much knowledge of a modern language without the assistance of a teacher. *

. It may be of advantage to teachers residing in, or near, town, to learn that classes have been formed at the St. Thomas Charterhouse Schools, Goswell Street, under a trained master, who has lately returned from the Continent. These classes have been undertaken with the express object of affording teachers an opportunity of acquiring a knowledge of the French and German languages.

FRENCH. The following Note preceded each of the Four Languages : Success in performing the exercises required in this paper will be received as an evidence of merit in any Candidate, but it is not an indispensable condition of his receiving a Certificate. 1. Translate the following passage: Ils arrivèrent, vers le milieu de la nuit, au pied de leur

montagne, dont le sommet était éclairé de plusieurs feux.
