CORRESPONDENCE. Communications have been received from Messrs. Hampson ; Dunn ; and Duplock : from S. H. (Exeter); Clericus ; G. M. D.; and Bereus.

The letter of “ An Original Subscriber, &c.," is put into the hands of the Editor of the work in question.

Several communications bave been made to us on the subject of a late recautalion of Unitarianism, but our sincere pity for the unhappy man whose name has been so indecently proclaimed by the Methodists to the world will not allow us to risque the possibility of disturbing his last moments by exhibiting his true character.

We have received, through a bookseller, W. W.'s MS. volume. We have hitherto been able only to read a few passages, but the impression upon our mind is, that we shall be disposed to insert the Correspondence contained in it, in some successive Numbers of our next Volume.

We have received from our friend and correspondent, Professor Chenevière, of Geneva, an Historical Account of the late Theological Disputes at Geneva, which will appear in a Translation in the volume which will begin with the next Number.

In our next Number, the first of Vol. XIX., will be given an Engraved Portrait of RAMMOHUN Roy, the Hindoo Christian Reformer.

ERRATUM. P. 626, col. 2, line 35 from the bottom, for “ exacted by," read “ exacted from."
