The Rev. JOHN CUMMING, D.D., is now the great pulpit orator of London, as Edward Irving was some twenty years since. But very different is the Doctor to that strange, wonderfully eloquent, but erratic man. There could not by possibility be a greater contrast. The one all fire, enthusiasm, and semi-madness; the other a man of chastened energy and convincing calmness. The one like a meteor, flashing across a troubled sky, and then vanishing suddenly in the darkness; the other like a silver star, shining serenely, and illuminating our pathway with its steady ray. He is looked upon as the great champion of Protestantism in its purest form. His church is densely crowded by the most intellectual and thinking part of that crowded city, while his writings have reached a sale unequalled by those of any theological writer of the present day. His great work on the "Apocalypse," upon which his great reputation as a writer rests, having already reached its 15th edition in England, while his "Lectures on the Miracles," and those on 'Daniel," have passed through six editions of 1000 copies each, and his "Lectures on the Parables" through four editions, all within a comparatively short time.
