New edition of Baxter's Practical Works. Mr. Edwards, of Crane Court, who, about thirteen years ago, issued proposals for the republication of the whole of the Practical Works of this eminent divine, when he reluctantly abandoned his purpose for want of sufficient encouragement, has resolved to commence this undertaking, in the hope that the present period will be found favourable to the prosecution of his object.
