This Company has been formed for the purpose of working some of the richest and most promising iron and tin mines-the Smallacombe freehold estate, upon which the Atlas tin and iron bides are now being worked; the Hercules Iron iMine, on the Higher Bowden estate, both in Devon ; and the Phoenix Iron Mine, in the parish of St. Issey, Cornwall, as shown in the plans and reports. The working of these properties alone will constitute this Company the greatest vendors of iron ores in the western counties. It is acknowledged that no better opening presents itself for the profitable employment of capital than the mining of iron ore. This ore occurs in greater abundance and regularity than those of other metals, and the demand is constant and increasing, and the sale highly remunerative. Detailed Prospectuses, with Reports, &o., can bo obtained of the Secretary, or the Brokers, and to whom applications for Shares should be forwarded. ACCIDENTS ARE OF DAILY OCCURRENCE.

Gd.; oifered at Is. 3d. The following resolution, in reference to the eheap edition of this work, was unanimously agreed to at the Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Alliance in 1854:- "That the Conference have received with much satisfaction and delight the information which has been communicated relative to the cheap edition of the prize essay on Infidelity, and are devoutly thank-fulfortlie extensive circulation which it has obtained; and, while expressing, as they feel themselves bound to do, sincere admiration of the enterprising zeal of their publishers in connexion with it, would bespeak for them the continued and increased co-operation of the friends of Evangelical truth throughout the country; the work in question being, by universal consent, pre-eminently iittcd to conteract the sceptical and unbelieving tendencies of the age, among whatever class tbey may prevail." " A book which deserves to find a place in every house, from the cottagb to the palace."-British Banner. " Will bo found to be one of the ablest productions which has issued from tlie press on Infidelity. The subject is thoroughly understood, and treated in all its parts with precision, and yet with copiousness with learning and skill; with the authority that attends on successful argument, and the boldness which springs from truth."-Evangelical Christendom. " The work is of a high order, singularly comprehensive in its grasp, logical in its arrangement, and clear in its statements. It is distinguished by a masterly exhaustiveness of the subject." - Free Church Magazine. " Admirably adapted to reclaim thoughtful infidels, and to guard the rising youth of our country against the manifold sophistries which characterise and pervade every section of the infidel school. . . . No sum received by the author can be equal to the value of his remarkable essay. It meets the whole question ; and is- as-much adapted to the peasant's cottage as the prince's palace."-Evangelical Magazine. Upwards of 20,000 copies of this work were sold within twelve months after its publication. DR. HARRIS'S LAST WORK. PATRIARCHY; or, the Family, its (Jonstitution and Probation. By the late Rev. J.
