CORRESPONDENCE. Communications have been received from Messrs. J. Johnston and Spurrell; from Clericus: an Old and Constant Reader; G. M, D.; and Clericus Cantabrigiensis.

Philadelphus's corrected paper did not come to hand till the former one was printed.

Before we had received any of the communications this month on the “ Origin of Evil,” we had resolved not to renew the controrersy in the present volume.

Many of “ Purveyor's" communications will, we doubt not, be acceptable.

We give this month what we hope will be deemed a beautiful engraved portrait of RAMMOHUN Roy. A few Proof Impressions have been taken in 4to., on ludia Paper, for framing, which may be had of the Publishers, price 28. 6d. Some of the former Proof Portraits in the Monthly Repository remain, and may be had at the same price.

The Publishers have a set of the Monthly Repository complete in Eighteen Volumes. Such of the former Volumes and Numbers as are not out of print, may also be obtained, on application to them, personally, or through the Booksellers in town or country.
