The persons who are desirous of accepting Mr. Luckcock's offer (p. 10) are' requested to sigbify the same by lotter immediately addressed to him. It would be inconvenient to us to be the medium of comwunication. ..Anni's lines have been enveyed to the persods who are most intoresced hi the kind feelings which they express. " F. B.'s letter has been handed to us. We are sorry that he has taken offence at our determination to close the coutroversy respecting Chapel-Deeds. On a review of the matter, however, we cannot help thinking that in the decision te consulted the wishes of our readers. Several commupications hasides F. B.'s were put'aside; and it will generally happen that whenever a controversy in a periodical work is brought to an end there will be some papers unused. This is no doubt undesirable, but it is a less evil than that of having a subject hutited down.

In our text aamber, we shall insert three Original Letters of WIBLIAM PENN's to RICHARD BAXTER.

A correspondent suggests that we should take the earliest opportunity of correcting av error which crept into the obituary of the last number, p. 56 col. 2, wherein Dr. Alexander is said to have been “à pupil of the late Sir Wm. Blizard;" Sir William being noro living and President of the College of Surgeons.
