SUPPLEMENT. NOTICES OF "THE GOSPEL IN THE STARS," CRIT1 CISMS, REPLIES TO QUESTIONS AND OBJECTIONS WITH FURTHER EXPLANATIONS, ARGUMENTS, AUTHORITIES, AND A GENERAL INDEX. Notices. The author of this book has no reason to complain of a lack of notices of his work. The press in general has referred to it, and a hundred or more of such notices have come into his possession. Some of these have been very sympathetic with the theme and have much commended the argument. Thus, Stoddart's Review, among other favorable expressions, says: "He makes it apparent that the strange figures belonging to the constellations were familiar at a period that antedates by thousands of years any known religious faith which failed to recognize the existence and power of the true God. The evidence is strong which maintains that these devices had their origin in the very earliest ages of the world; and this one fact, proved as it seems to be, may be accepted as excellent testimony to their divine origin; and if that origin was divine, then it is fair to attempt, as Dr. S. does, to ascertain what was the purpose of their arrangement. If the hand of the Creator appears in these signs, confessed thrcjgb all the centuries tc be surrounded by mystery, and having a persistent existence which cannot be accounted for by the action of purely human agencies, then it is a fair inference that there is behind them some wonderful and eternal purpose which man, in a just spirit of reverence, may seek to detect." Thus, The J Ycphetic Times says: "The correspondence between the starry groups and the Sacred Scriptures is traced with a vigorous pen, and invested with an absorbing interest as vivid as it is novel; and we rise from its perusal with the conviction that there can be no question but that the Gospel glows in these hea...

Not illustrated. Excerpt: ... THE GOSPEL IN THE STARS. ILectute jFirst. THE STARRY WORLDS. Gen. 1:14: "And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and for years." THE sublimest visible objects of human contemplation are the Starry Heavens. The beholder is awed at every thoughtful look upon them. And when viewed in the light of astronomical science the mind is overwhelmed and lost amid the vastness and magnificence of worlds and systems which roll and shine above, around and beneath us. The Sun. The most conspicuous, to us, of these wonderful orbs is the Sun. Seemingly, it is not as large as the wheel of a wagon, but when we learn that we see it only at the distance of more than ninety-one millions of miles, and consider how the apparent size of objects diminishes in proportion to their remoteness, we justly conclude that it must be of enormous magnitude to be'so conspicuous across a gulf so vast. Our earth is a large body; it takes long and toilsome journeying for a man to make his way around it. But the Sun fills more than a million times the cubic space filled by the earth. A railway-train running thirty miles an hour, and " never stopping, could not go around it in less than eleven years, nor run the distance from the earth to the Sun in less than three hundred and sixty years. If we were to take a string long enough to reach the moon, and draw a circle with it at its utmost stretch, the Sun would still be six times larger than that circle. Belonging to the system of which it is the centre there are eight primary planets, some of them more than a thousand times larger than our earth, besides eighty-five asteroids, twentyone satellites or moons, and several hundred comets. But t...
