NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. “W. D.” (in the November Number) might do well to refer to a tract on Confirmation, by the Rev. D. I. Eyre, published by J. W. Parker. “W. D.,” by sending to the publishers, may also have a tract which will, perhaps, answer his purpose.
The paper from Barbadoes, respecting the Moravians, has been received with sincere thanks. It shall be sent to the author of the papers in question, who may perhaps make some few remarks on it.
“ Presbyter," "M. F.," " I. H. B. M.,"" Tyro,”". Iota," and " A Curate," are received,
“ Juvenis," in p. 534, asks—"Where is the American Prayer Book to be procured?" An edition was published by John Miller, Henrietta Street, Covent Garden, 1833, from the Philadelphia authorized edition.
Will « T. K. A.” send a copy of the Lincolnshire Chronicle to the office when there are any such meetings as he mentions noticed ?
“E. T." and A are received with thanks.
Many thanks to the gentlemen who have kindly sent drawings of Whitwick and Stourton churches, which shall be used immediately. The continuation of the “Memoir of the Bishop of Ferns” came too late for this Number.
“Nottingham Church Rates," and " Meeting of the Staffordshire Potteries' Association, are in type, and will be given in the next Number.
“Sir,- In my letter in your last Number there is an unfortunate mistake, which it would be as well to notice in your December Number. In the fourth line of the letter, . all that is subjective,' should be all that is objective.'. I intended to quote your own words in your September Number,--not October Number, as it would appear from my letter. The brackets, too, in page 587, ought to be erased.”
“ Your faithful servant, CATHOLICUS." The following copy of a circular, to complete the series, should have been given some time back:
“ Pennsylvania, near Exeter, May , 1835. “My Lorn,- If the duties of your station, in these awful times, have not completely engrossed your attention, but you should be aware of Mr. Oxlee's second attack on the early Parisian Greek Press, (British Magazine, March, p. 298,) you must have been struck with the heavy charges which he there brings against it. These involve not merely your Lordship's personal character, but, what I am certain must be much dearer to you, that of the church in which you have been ordained to " have the rule,” for having enjoined, and still persevering to enjoin, a version to be read in her sacred ordinances, as the word of God, formed from a text wilfully corrupted against all its authorities. As I had undertaken to vindicate Stephanus and his collations, I thought it my bounden duty not to let this escape without the rebuke which appears in the British Magazine for May; and I again send your Lordship a copy of my paper without offering any apology. If I have not sadly deceived myself, Mr. Oxlee's arguments, upon which he founds his accusations, are there confuted. At all events your Lordship will have the high satisfaction of observing, that the three testimonies to which I have appealed that of Henry, who had so large a share in the collations posterior to the O mirificam; that of Beza, who had the book of collations; and that of Robert himself—all pass without an attempt on the part of Mr. O. to grapple with either of them; and that the facts brought from all parts of the works of the Docti et Prudentes in refuta. tion of their assertions, and in support of my three vouchers, are noticed only by him under the description of " such passages of their works as may seem to involve a contradiction or an inconsistency.". But above all-in respect to the passage of the Heavenly Witnesses, the expulsion of which he avows to be the sole object of his rancour against the received text and the authorized version-Mr. O. is obliged to admit, that the ground on which the Docti et Prudentes have, for more than a century, with one voice pronounced Stephanus guilty, is swept away from under them; and he has to take totally different, for the purpose. "I am, your Lordship’s humble servant,
