CORRESPONDENCE. We hope to be able to present our Subscribers in the ensuing Number, the first of Vol. XII. with a Portrait of the late Rev. William Vidler, accompanied with a Manoir.

In this Number we insert the Resolutions of the Unitarian Society at Thorne on the settlement of their accounts. The names of all the Subscribers are also sent un · for insertion, but we have not room for them ; indeed we feel considerable objection to this mode of filling up our pages, and recommend that in this and similar cases a printed list be stitched up with our wrapper as an advertisement. This will fully answer the end and leave us room for communications of more permanent value.

The Rossendale account will be closed in the next Nuniber.

Mr. W'ilson's strictures on the Review of his History of Dissenting Churches, cam too late for insertion. We have returned it to the Publishers for bim, and we take the liberty of recommending him to withdraw it. It would, we fear, produce an effect contrary to the design of the writer. We must, at least, require bim to shorten it, for a great part of it has no more reference to the Review of the History than to almost any other theological article in any one of our Miscellaneous Volumes.

Various other communications are of necessity reserved for the next Volume,
