Communicated.] Should Sermons be Read ? The practice of reading sermons, I fft'icv, had its origin in the early days of the Reformation, when many of those who filled the pulpits of Eng land—Roman Catholic priests, who had veered around with the Court — being unable or unwilling to preach! the truth, were requirecl to read on Sundays the homilies of the Church. Whatevar be its origin, the custom, I a a toltl, is all but universal in Amer ica ; is so in the Church of England, t.tifl, though long opposed by the dons and determined Presbyterians of Scot land, has even there crept into com mon use. The latter circumstance is probably due in large measure to the TOCt that the greatest of Scotch pulpit orator*, was a reader. An example not to be followed by ordinary mor tals !

(concluded.) Fancy reading practiced elsewhere than in the church, carried into the common affairs of life, and nothing else is needed to expose its absurdity.
