Abstract : Within the last 22 years, he has published about 10 volumes on literary, scientific, and theological subjects, calculated to promote the intellectual and moral improvement of society, particularly of the middle and lower ranks of the community. The general aim of these volumes has been to bring the more useful and interesting portions of science within the comprehension of general readers, and to render the discoveries of science, and the improvements of the useful arts subservient to the promotion of the interests of religion and Christian morality.
