TO CORRESPONDENTS. We deem it but justice to Mr. E. Valpy, to state that he is so far from professing himself to be the editor of the duodecimo edition of the Greek Testament, reviewed in our last number ; that he

wholly

wholly disclaims having even seen that work, which has been printed by his nephew, Mr. J. Valpy. Had this circumstance fallen within our notice, it must have procured a considerable abatement, if not wholly precluded our strictures on a work, which, we continue to think, wants but a few corrections in the text, to make it one of the best books of the kind with which we are acquainted.

Art. I. A Course of Lectures, containing a Description and

systematic Arrangement of the sereral Branches of Divinity. By Herbert Marsh, D.D. F.R.S. (now Lord Bishop of

Landuff:) Part IV. On the Interpretation of Prophecy. - 8vo. pp. 86. 2s. 6d. Rivingtons. 1816. THERE are few events wbich could have contributed more to cheer and animate the Church under its present circumstances, than the elevation of Dr. Marsh to the episcopal bench. The promotion of those, who by their worth have strengthened, and by their talent advanced the interests of our holy cause, is at all times a subject of legitimate triumph ; but in no case, perhaps, has this promotion been hailed with more heartfelt exultation than in the present. While the depth and variety of his knowledge, and the acuteness of his reasoning powers entitle him to our admiration ; his manly zeal and spirited exertions in defence of all that is dear to us as Churchmen and as Christians commend him to our affection. He has maintained the good cause in detiance of every worldlý prospect or hope. His advancement has been hardly and severely earned; it came equally unsought and unexpected; and we hail it the more auspicious, as we consider it the advancement not of himself alone, but of the interests of tha: Church in whose defence he has shewn himself so able and so intrepid a combatant. He is now called into a higher scene of action, in which we doubt not but that the same exertion, the same courage, and the same skill will mark his career with honour; and under the blessing of Providence, adorn it with success.

With the three former parts of these Lectures our readers are well acquainted; the part before us embraces a subject of no less importance than extent—the interpretation of Prophecy. .

The Bishop first considers the connexion between the interpre 'tation of types, which formed the subject of the last Lecture, and
