to the saint's prediction, and his companions buried him there, raising a heap of stones over his grave. This cairn may be seen still on the sea-coast, and the river in which he was baptized is called to this day by the inhabitants, Dobur (the stream) Artbranani.”.

St. Adamnan usually appeals for confirmation to the local knowledge and traditions of his readers. At others he says simply,“ What more the prophecy of the holy man was fulfilled, and this was Aenghus, surnamed Bronbachar.” Once he says, Of the miracles recorded in this chapter, there are yet living not merely one or two witnesses as the law requires, but hundreds who can bear witness to their truth.

Curious “ signs of the times," are recorded, such as might be found in the poetry of Ossian, as, for instance, the holy man's prophecy concerning the polluted well.

Another time, after the convention of the kings at Drumceath, that is, between Aedh, son of Gabran ; and Aedh, son of Aainmurech, the saint returned to the sea shore, and on a cloudless day in summer, he and the abbot Comghaill sat down not far from the above named fort : after the saint had got a little water brought to him from a well that was close by, to wash his hands, he said to the abbot : 'A day shall come when the well from whence this water was drawn will be no longer fit for man's use.' Why,' said Comghaill, shall the water be corrupted ? Because,' replied the saiut, it shall be filled with human blood, for my relatives and yours, that is, the descendants of Neill and the Cruithnii shall wage war in the neighbouring fortress of Cethern, and in that conflict an unhappy relative of mine shall be slain, whose blood, mingling with that of many others, shall fill up the well.' This truthful prophecy was fulfilled after many years, for in that battle, it is well known, Domnall, son of Aedh, came off victorious, and in that well, according to the saiut's word, was slain a near relative of his. Another soldier of Christ, called Finan, who led the life of an anchorito blamelessly for a long time near the monastery of Durrow, and who was present at the battle, assured me, Adamnan, that he saw a man's body lying in the well, that on his return from the battle-field the same day to the monastery of St. Comghaill, in Irish Comas, he found there two aged monks who, when he told them of the battle he saw, and of the well filled with human blood, exclaimed, 'A true prophet is Columba, for he had foretold all the circumstances you now mention, long indeed before they occurred, in our hearing to St. Comghaill, when they sat together near fort Cethern."

But we have said enough to give our readers an idea of St. Columba's gifts of prophecy and miracle. We will only add that the translator, whose name is not given, has added notes that leave no names of places or persons unexplained, and an appendix containing some curious information. Altogether this little work is, as a fragment of antiquity, well worth the perusal.

VII.- Walking with God; or, Dwellers in the Recreation House of the

Lord. From the French of the Pere Rigoleuc, S. J. London : Richardson and Son, 1860.

A selection from the works of so eminent a divine as le Pere Rigoleuc, cannot but be highly valuable. The instructions it contains are of an ascetic character, in fact, addressed to the inmates of Religious Houses ; to such as “are learning to walk and dwell in the school of religious perfection.” Our readers will understand, without any observation of ours, that many things which it contains may be very generally edifying. We will mention especially the Counsels for souls whom God leads in the ordinary ways of grace," and the “Exercise of preparation for death.'

Note. We have received Mr. Massey's first, second, and third volumes of “a History of England during the Reign of George the Third.” We propose to review the work when completed in his fourth volume. Also O'Donoghue's “ Historical Memoirs of the O‘Briens,” which we hope to notice. MacMahon's “ Treatise on Metaphysics” comes so much within the scope of a recent article in the Dublin Review as to preclude our going furtber into the subject, at least for the present. We much regret that “T. A.P.'s" Introduction to the History of France” has reached us at too late a period to enable us to bestow on it, in this number, the attention which it appears to merit. We regret our ignorance of the identity of the author. We had prepared notices of “May Templeton;" “ United Irishmen, third series;" “ The Third Report on Reformatories ;"' and of other works which our want of space obliges us to postpone.
