NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS.
Throughout this Volume, and in this No. especially, we find our space much less than our wants, and are obliged to postpone and omit many articles for which we should be glad to find room. We have a drawer full of unused articles, and a large pile of unreviewed books. Enlarge the size of our Magazine we cannot. It is already larger and more costly than (if we regarded our own interests) we ought to give. In this and in preceding Nos. we have not inserted some articles of Intelligence, the writers of which have thought fit to send them also (generally without giving an intimation of the fact) to another Unitarian periodical. In this department it must necessarily sometimes happen that we are anticipated by our weekly contemporary; but our correspondents ought not to do us and our readers the wrong of offering us that which is already given to another. The sending of an article is a complete transfer of the right of ownership to the Editor who is asked to print it. This is we believe the law, we are certain it is the morality, of the case.
For our next No. we have, amongst other papers, a valuable historical article on Calvin aud Servetus. The new Volume will contain the Memoirs of the late Rev. ROBERT ASPLAND, and a series of valuable papers entitled Pictures from Genesis.
We ask our friends to use their influence to promote the circulation of the CHRISTIAN REFORMER. It ought to be larger than it is.
