TO CORRESPONDENTS. The suggestion of "B. J. W." would gratify some, but we fear would also give offence to many.

We are greatly obliged by the very flattering remarks of "R. B.” upon our Psalmody. Had he given us his address we should have acknowledged his kindness by letter.

Our thanks are due to our friends at Manchester and at Brompton.
We fear that "Swift" will think we are slow.



AUGUST, 1836,


Art. I.–Natural Evidence of a Future Life, derived from the Pro

perties and Actions of Animate and Inanimate Matter. By FredERICK C. BAKEWELL, Author of Philosophical Conversations, fc. London: Longman & Co, 1835. 8vo. Pp. xxiv. 372.

It has been said, we know not with what truth, and we forget by whom, that ladies have a mortal antipathy to Prefaces and Introductions. Reviewers, on the contrary, rejoice exceedingly in them, as the easiest means of ascertaining the spirit and intention of a book; nor can authors avail themselves of a surer method of propitiating their favour, than what is afforded by such preliminary guide-posts. They save us infinite trouble and vexation, and are just as necessary to facilitate the review of a volume submitted to our official inspection, as a chart and compass are for safe and expeditious navigation over the trackless sea. We owe many thanks to Mr. Bakewell for his prudence in these particulars. His clever volume has the benefit of Preface, Introduction, Table of Contents, with a threefold division into Parts, and to each part is a chapter of Preliminary Observations. But it is not merely on the selfish ground of personal ease, thus vouchsafed to ourselves and his readers, that we acknowledge our obligations : we take a higher position, and class these friendly clews amongst the earnests of a writer's integrity and intelligence : his integrity, because he ingenuously manifests his designs,—his intelligence, because he who thoroughly understands a subject will be most competent and willing to impart clearly the knowledge of it. Such a guide is Mr. Bakewell in the excellent publication before us. He begins his book with telling us what he means to accomplish; he steadily adheres to his declared purpose throughout; and he conducts his argument with singular skill and happy tact to a triumphant conclusion.

He has pursued a new path in the delightful study of Natural Theology. Whilst other writers have directed their attention to the subject, VOL. XVIII.—NO. VIII.


with the view of establishing the existence and illustrating the character of the First Great Artificer of the universe, by different parts of the great argument drawn from final causes, it is the design of Mr. Bakewell to consult the same sources of evidence respecting “ the ulterior objects for which man was created ;": question, it will be admitted, of the very highest importance! How then, it may be asked, are we to account for the fact that a truth of such moment has been chiefly confined to moral philosophers and metaphysicians, who have endeavoured to illustrate it by arguments founded on the attributes of the Deity and the constitution of human nature, to the exclusion of natural phenomena ; as if the evidence to be derived from the actions of matter were either not favourable to, or at least insufficient to establish, the doctrine of the immortality of the soul? The advocates of materialism, to whom this ground has been hitherto abandoned, as if in deference to some prescriptive right, have at length encountered a champion who has prowess and skill to vanquish them, and to invade their favourite fastnesses. It has been left to Mr. Bakewell to accomplish this gallant enterprise. He says

The results to be attained by a careful examination of natural phenomena, afford, it is conceived, the best answer that can be given to the objections urged against the immateriality of the sentient principle; for if it can be shewn that the balance of evidence derived from those phenomena preponderates in favour of the existence of an immaterial, indestructible agency, distinct froin matter and from animal organization, that truth will be thus established on the very ground on wbich alone it is attempted to be disputed. To accomplish this object-to deduce from the consideration of the ulterior and more bidden causes of physical processes and of the animal functions, the existence of the mind after death-is the design of the present work.--Preface, p. vii.

In pedantic, or incompetent hands, a subject of this nature, connected with metaphysical as well as with physical science, and drawing its multifold evidence from such various sources, would be involved in endless technicalities difficult to be understood, and in intricate mystifications repulsive to general readers. Under the auspices of Mr. Bakewell these defects have been avoided ; and the work before us is essentially popular--attractive in its form-simple in its style---clear in its statements-and convincing in its argument. The author has secured these indispensable qualities, by dividing his Treatise into three parts; the two first of which relate to matter and its properties in the inorganic state ; and the last, to the manifestations of the living and intellectual principles, by a system of organized material particles.

Whether we consult the First Part, which treats of the “Indestructibility of Matter," or look to the Second, which is conversant with “ the Properties of Matter,”—or read the Third, which discusses “ the Phenomena of Life,”-we see the accumulating evidence of " a future life"
