The following notice of SPRING'S FRAGMENTS is ex.
tracted from the N. Y. Commercial Advertiser of Nov. 10th, 1838.
The first piece entitled the “ Church in the Wilderness," is one of the most beautiful sketches in our language. It is in every respect a finished production-a picture complete in all its parts, that for the time captivates the affections, enchains the powers
of the mind, and fills the soul with the most exalted con. ceptions. The Church is represented, under the various cir. cumstances of her earthly allotment, leaning on the arm of her Beloved, and deriving all her strength from this unfailing source. The chastened but glowing fancy, elegance of diction, and purity of thought, conspire to give beauty to the image, and make us dwell upon it with delight.
The other pieces in the collection are scarcely of inferior merit. “ The Inquiring Meeting" portrays with great vividness some of the phases which the human heart exhibits, when under the influence of religious excitement. The “ Letter to a Young Clergymen” abounds in instructions of inestimable value. It may perhaps, be doubted whether the author attaches sufficient importance to pastoral visitation. « The Panorama," is an affecting delineation of the employment of men as they usually appear on the stage of active life. 66 The Useful Christian” con. tains sound practical suggestions for informing the mind, regulat ing the heart, and inspiring energy of action.
