PSALM CII. 25.

“Let us take a Survey of the principal Fabrick, viz. the Terraqueous Globe itself; a most stupendous wo in every particular of it, which doth no less aggrandize its Maker than every curious complete work doth its Workman. Let us cast our eyes here and there, let us ransack all the Globe, let us with the greatest accuracy inspect every part thereof, search out the inmost secrets of any of the creatures, let us examine them with all our gauges, measure them with our nicest rules, pry into them with our microscopes and most exquisite instruments, still we find them to bear testimony to their infinite Workman."

DERHAM'S PHYSICO-THEOLOGY, BOOK II. P. 38.

“ Could the body of the whole Earth be submitted to the Exami. nation of our Senses, were it not too big and disproportioned for our Enquiries, too unwieldy for the Management of the Eye and Hand, there is no question but it would appear to us as curious and well-contrived a frame as that of an human body. We should see the same Concatenation and Subserviency, the same Necessity and Usefulness, the same Beauty and Harmony in all and every of its Parts, as what we discover in the Body of every single Animal."

SPECTATOR, NO. 543.
