This Examination shall always be holde in Full Term, and in some room within the precincts of the Schools.

IX. The stipends shall be paid to the Scholars by the Vice Chancellor at the end of the first year, on their producing a Certificate of having completed the residence required, and at the end of each subsequent year, on their transmitting to the Vice Chancellor the required exercises.

X. Should a Scholar omit to complete the required residence in any one or more of the above-mentioned Terms, if such

Art. I.-- The Life of Thomas Ken, D.D., deprived Bishop of Bath

and Wells ; seen in Connexion with the spirit of the times, political and religious, particularly those great events, the Restoration, 1660, and Revolution of 1688. Including the period of fanatical Puritanism from 1640 to the Death of Cromwell. By the Rev. W.L. Bowles, Canon Residentiary of Salisbury, M. A. M.R.S.L. In two volumes. 8vo. Vol. II. pp. xliv. 310. London: J. Murray.

(Concluded from page 10.) LIVING, as we do, in these days of rebuke and obloquy, every month brings in its train some new source of disquiet to our venerable Church; and imperatively demands at the hands of the ministers of the gospel renewed exertion and energy to stem the tide which so strongly sets in against, not only the hierarchy, but the Establishment altogether. If any of our readers ask, what course, under these appalling circumstances, we would recommend them to adopt, perhaps no better reply could be readily given, than that pursued, amidst difficulty and danger of no common occurrence, by the great and good Bishop Ken.

Mr. Bowles has divided the Life of this excellent prelate into three distinct parts ; namely, from his birth to his first preferment in the Church, which occupies the first volume, and was the subject of our notice last month ;-from his short day of prosperity to his retirement ;—and from his years of retirement to his lonely grave, apart from all his connexions and friends. Many persons, as our author observes, may think the work too much enveloped with historical and miscellaneous matter, relating to the religious character and political events of the times : for our parts, we look upon most of the circumstances as too important, and too intimately connected with the course of the distinguished subject of the memoir, to have been lightly dismissed ; and if there be an appearance of prolixity now and then discoverable, the Biographer has displayed no small tact in mixing the utile and dulce in such just proportions, as to



suit the taste of the majority of the reading world, and thus give more general satisfaction.

In the Introduction of the second volume, we perceive the same characteristics of style and language which we before noticed, and again express our regret that Mr. Bowles has not been a little more temperate. The subject, it is true, is well calculated to excite the indignation of the pious and orthodox minister and steward of the mysteries of God; but from an individual filling such a responsible situation, greater charity is expected by a censorious world, and a more decided subjection of the infirmities of the flesh to the power and dominion of the Spirit. We rejoice, however, that Mr. Bulteel, the “Cheynell Redivivus" of Oxford, has been so roughly handled, λογίκως ουκ οπλιτίκως. We are pleased to find that the pages of the Christian REMEMBRANCER are not the only ones where this Calvinistic declaimer against his superiors in learning, virtue, and the purest spirit of Christianity, is held up to merited contempt; and we trust before he or any of his schism again foam forth from the pulpit their rabid slanders, they may, upon calm reflection, to which it would appear they are little used, be induced to pay some slight attention to such texts as the following, which require no comment :~"If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, that man's religion is vain.” (James i. 26.)

Having in our former notice brought the history of Ken to the period of the restoration and reestablishment of the Episcopal Church, and seen him settled in a fellowship in the college of that ancient city where his schoolboy days were passed; we now resume the thread of the narrative, and find him peaceably, silently, and happily pursuing the even tenour of his way, amid scenes endeared by many pleasing recollections, and surrounded by those he most loved and esteemed upon earth. For three years, viz. from 1666 to 1669, the current of his private life flowed on calmly and serenely; when he was promoted to the dignity of a prebendal stall' in the restored cathedral church of Winchester, by that Morley, so copiously noticed in the first volume of the work before us, who had been, through all fortunes, the warm and constant friend of his brother-in-law, Izaak Walton. In these days of nepotism, this may possibly be misconstrued into the reward of family connexion rather than merit: hear Mr. Bowles ;

Let it not be thought that Ken gained his first dignified station in the Church on account of his connexions: no; Morley had been a witness for three years of his piety; the unaffected and social amenities of his disposition; his untired and voluntary exertions in his profession; his conscientious attachment, neither uncharitable nor enthusiastic, to the altars at which he served; his assiduous cares for the interests, both here and hereafter, of the youthful sons of Wickham, bred up to piety and letters by the same bounty to which he himself had been indebted. Added to these cireumstances, no doubt Bishop Morley remembered that Ken was the brother of that Kenna who received “my Lord of Winton" so kindly, so hospitably, when he "had not where to lay his head" upon earth,
