TUMBER XIJ. for the ensuing Month, among a variety of other inftru&ive and en.

tertaining particulars, will contain memoirs of Dr. Moss, Lord Bishop of Bath and Wells, embellished with an elegant portrait of his Lord'hip-Also a celebrated Pfalm tune, » as sung at the Magdalen and Founding Chapels, and set by an eminent mufic matter.

A Parapbrase on ebe Firf Article of tbe Churcb of England is received, as are also the fa. vours of a new Correspondene I.C.P.; Georgius; james Watson ; A.B.; Verax ; 2.C; Americanus ; Granville ; Origin ;. R. Knowles ; A Cbriftian Barber of Barbilan; B. Wilkins; Pao cibors, and twenty-seven poetical pieces with different fignatures ; cach of which, if ade millible, thall appeăr in turn wichout delay.

The Verses referred to in an introductory letter from James Coates, which letter is received,
have not come to our hands:
We are much difpafed

to serve 11. 7, or H. T. yet cannot in the way he desires. A litel reflection will convince this Correspondent that his Acrostic Epiftle is not adapted to the Cbriftian's Magazine: but if he will turn his thoughts to a subject of a serious nature, we pre ready to give proof of our willingness to oblige him; and in our opinion, by doing this, hc will be more likely to be happy'in the returned kindefs of Mifs W-lef-d.

Mr. R. Nuh will be pleased to accept of our thanks for his information respecting the miftake of one of our Reviewers. The price of Mr. Wishaw's, 2 vols. of Sermons is 8s fowed. The gentleman of Cardigansire, whofe Jester is dated. May 3ift, requesting-ea. Efay op

great fin of Sacrilege thall be particularly attended to, If W H. will acquaint us with article and page in the review of which he speaks in his letter, dated May the 30th, we will endeavour to comply with his withes,

Queries from Veraš thall be inserted the first opportunity. We do not recollect to have seen his Signature befores, but it is not in our power, at present, to determine any thing about the Pfalm Tet to music; the fame we are obliged to lay to Z. C. whom we have before particularly noticed in our answers to Correspondents.

Having been charged, in the course of last month, with the expence of some letters from diftant parts, we are under the necessity of reminding our Correspondents of the late new act, which has augmented the poftage of Letters above eighty miles; and we beg leave to observe, that, for the future, no favours will be in the least noticed, which come not to us agreeable to apcient and modern usage, P06 T PAID.

INDIGNATUS, from whom we have been favoured with a very long Epifle, is not to be blam’d, for ftanding forth in defence of his friend; yet we cannot approve of his file and fpirit. Ira brevis furor eft. We are not responsible for the unguarded expressions of our core respondents, in whose copies, uèless desired, we presume not to make the least alteration : but,on the other hand, Indignatus thould not sender railing for railing, “ Anger, as is observed above, is a short madness, and will not serve a friend, or any cause. The writer of this article is as well acquainted with, and no less a friend to Dr. Prienly, than Indignatus can be; and he is certain ihe ftri&tures of our Reviewer upon the Doctor's corruptions of Chriftianity, will not in the least affect his benevolent feelings. Dr. Priestly is, equally with ourselves, friend to religious liberty ; he cannot therefore be offended at our combating his private api. nions, and not admitting them into that Repofitory of Divine Kixowledge, which will stea. dily maintain, defend, and preserve, as a inost sacred trust, the fundamental doctrines of the Cbürcb of England, well known to be founded upon Trinitarian principles. But should the language of Christian have really offended Indignatus, he muft antwer him through fome other channel ; for we must decline a contest which comman fenfc will tell that enraged Gentleman, can neither be agrceable to ourselves, nor entertaining to our readers.
