Beauties of Nature Delineated; or, philosophical and pious contemplations on the Works of Nature, and the Seasons of the year. Selected from Sturm's Reflections, by the Rev. T. M. Harris. Extract from the Preface. The selection here offered to the Public, is made from Sturm's "Reflections, on the works of GoD and his Providence, throughout all nature, for every day in the year." Copious testimonials in favour of that work might have been extracted from foreign Journals and Reviews; but it will be sufficient to observe that its merit, and the high opinion which has been entertained of it, are sufficiently evinced in the numerous and large editions through which it has passed in the original German and in most of the languages of Europe. Though the English translation is inaccurate, inelegant, and frequently ungrammatical, it has been well received and frequently reprinted. So interesting, entertaining, and instructive was the matter and the sentiment, that the manner and the style was but little regarded.

To every reflecting, serious person, this little volume will prove a valuable acquisition. It is eminently calculated to give enlarged conceptions of the works of Creation; and, by an easy transition, to lead the thoughts" from Nature up to Nature's GoD." It is particularly useful to young persons whom it will furnish with a just and rational knowledge of the various phenomena of nature, and the admirable economy of the system to which they belong assisting them in the wisest reflections upon every thing around them, and inspiring them with the most exalted sentiments of the SUPREME BEING, all whose works proclaim and praise him.
