At the Office of R. W. Moore, 5, Bank Chambers, Lothbury.

[blocks in formation]

A LETTER has been received at this office, signed “ A Rector," unhesitatingly charging the author of some observations on the last Church Building Act (in the last Number) with baving no care for souls. To a writer of a different temper, one might perhaps say, that it would be only fair to look to the three last numbers (as well as many preceding ones) for the expression of very earnest wishes, and the production of very laborious documents, on this very subject. But in this case it would obviously be useless. If one presumes to differ from some men as to the means of effecting an end, they denounce you at once. Be it so. If the writer of those observations is careless about souls, at least his account of that fearful charge is not to be given at the tribunal of such a judge as “a

Rector,” but at one where judgment will be administered on principles different from his. But what is it that he goes on to say ? why really this, that one ought not to say a word against the system of joint trustees, as we must not be particular where so great an object is at stake, and as these trustees would not give the money for this Christian purpose unless they got patronage in return! Whose statement is this? who accuses and libels the joint trustees ?-_-This gentleman concludes his letter by denounciog, in equally severe terms, the perfectly just epithet applied to a statement in the newspapers respecting the want of Bibles in this country, and quietly imputes it to “inveterate prejudice against the Bible Society.” Not the remotest hint was given as to the Bible Society, nor was it in the writer's thoughts. Will the Bible Society be obliged to this gentleman for thus connecting it (most unjustly) with every idle, absurd, and almost profane statement respecting the Holy Scriptures made in the newspapers ? Whose statement, again, is this ?—who libels the Bible Society ?

A correspondent asks, whether the letter of Charles the First, referred to by Dr. Wiseman in his late pamphlet, is in print, since it is very desirable that Protestants should be able to judge for themselves in the matter. Dr. W.'s words are these :-“I have myself seen his King Charles's) letter to the Pope, wherein he intimates his readiness to barter the Protestant religion in England for temporal assistance from the Holy See,” p. 19; as if the Pope had any Philip the Second at his elbow to send over to England.

(This pamphlet, by Dr. Wiseman, the Rector of the English College in Rome, is an answer to Mr. Poynder's remarks, already animadverted on in this Magazine. Thus it is that our cause is injured. The Romanists never fail to detect a weak point. They fall on this at once, and then cry out “Victory !” as if the overthrowing an untenable or extravagant argument of a self-elected champion had anything to do with the matter.- En.]

To the very many requests made that the tract called “ Historical Notices, &c.” in the December number, may be reprinted separately, the Editor begs to say, that it has been recommended in the usual way to the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge. Should they not consider it as adapted to their purpose, he has no doubt that the author will yield to so very many requests, and publish it without delay.

« A. Z." will find that the tract just spoken of will exactly answer his purpose.

“R.” is informed, that there is no doubt but that, by the well-known decision of Sir John Nicholl, clergy refusing to bury children baptized by any one are liable to punishment. The Editor is not aware that there is any law which can restrain a dissenter from acting as “R." mentions. “R.” is probably aware, that in some chapels, licensed as dissenting chapels, the whole church service is read.

“ A Young Person" is recommended, on the whole, to use Bishop Wilson's “ Introduction to the Lord's Supper,"containing the office with appropriate private devotions; and the prayers, &c., in Hele's “Select Offices of Devotion."

The letter on Origen shall appear in the next Number.

The following are received : -“E. B. P.,” Mr. Winning, “-, on the Dark Ages," a Letter from the neighbourhood of Wakefield, a paper on Sponsors,” “D. E. H."and "B.A.”

The Editor hopes in several succeeding numbers to give an useful selection of short Tracts on Popery.

The following pamphlets and Sermons deserve notice, which there is no room to give :-“An Essay on the Disorders incident to Literary Men,” by W. Newnham, Esq., (well worth reading); a most admirable Sermon, by the Rev. W. F. Hook,

for the Irish Clergy, (“The Catholic Clergy of Ireland"); a very useful work, called “the Catechist, or Church-of-England Catechism explained, by the Rev. T. Henderson, M.A., of Messing; Dr. Russell's (of Leith)“ Observations on the Advantages of Classical Learning,” (though, as to the dark ages, he would do well to look to the papers in this Magazine); a Sermon on the Atonement, by Mr. Ketley, the late Unitarian Minister at Ipswich; an interesting Sermon, by the Rev. James Anderson, for the Sussex County Hospital ; a Sermon, by Mr. Stowell, on the death of his father, (a kind of address which one can never read without something of the feelings under which it is written, but of which it may be doubted whether it is advisable for so near a relative to undertake the task); a most excellent letter from Mr. Collinson, of Gateshead, to Mr. Dick, on his work on “ Church Polity;" a pamphlet called “Dissent Anti-monarchical and Democratical;" a Letter to Dr. Murray, by a Protestant, summing up very well the controversy as to Dens; and Bishop Coleridge's Address to Deacons before Ordination, from which, it is hoped, that some extracts may be given in the next Number.

Mr. King has just published a Second Letter to Mr. Maitland, in which he notices Mr. M.'s Second Letter to Mr. Rose, and that part of Mr. M.'s letter to himself (Mr. King) which relates to his own affairs ; but he entirely omits all that very important part of it which relates to Milner. Thus he is always one letter in the rear of Mr. Maitland. Surely this is not desirable. As to the answer which he gives to Mr. Maitland's specific charges against Milner, it must be left to Mr. Maitland to deal with them, for they are really matters of detail. Without meaning any discourtesy to Mr. King, it must be plainly said, that Mr. Maitland need not take the trouble of answering what refers to himself, but may safely leave the public to decide.

The cheap and beautiful publications so often noticed — "Switzerland,” by Dr. Beattie, und "Memorials of Oxford,”-go on as well as ever.

The clergy will find in the new edition of the “ CLERICAL Guide" a book very much inproved in all respects. The type is clear and beautiful, and many particulars not contained in the last edition are given in this. The livings which have a glebe-house are marked; the revenue, church-room, &c., are also stated.

They who wish to acquire easily a notion of the tendency of Rabbinical teaching, should take in the numbers of the penny controversial work, issuing just now by the London Society, and published by Duncan, or by Wertheim, 57, Aldersgate-street. Rarely, indeed, in such a form, does one meet with so much real learning and powerful argument.

A committee in London is publishing weekly extracts from the Report of the Intimidation Committee of the House of Commons, shewing the part taken by the Roman priests in elections lately. They are published by Tyler, 164, Tottenham-court Road, and are well worth attention. In the Editor's opinion, it would be better to give the evidence without a single remark beyond the italics. It speaks for itself. And no one of any party can object to the publication of evidence.

Mr. Whewell's pamphlet on “ Flamsteed and Newton” will give real pleasure to all who feel that the untouched character of a great man for moral excellence is a treasure, of which no one has a right to rob our poor humanity except on indisputable evidence.

The Bishop of Salisbury's Letter to Lord Melbourne (republished by a zealous churchman at Exeter as a penny tract) has already reached a fourth edition.

Two tracts, called " The Voluntary Principle tried by the Scriptures of the New Testament," and “The Church Establishment Defended," "just published, are strongly recommended to notice.

The publishers beg to mention that they refused a small parcel coming by an Irish mail, in consequence of the excessive carriage charged, and their having no knowledge of its contents. If it contains anything of consequence, perhaps the person who sent it will communicate with them.
