TUMBER XIJ. for the ensuing Month, among a variety of other instructive and en

tertaining particulars, will contain memoirs of Dr. Moss, Lord Bishop of Bath and Wells, embellished with an elegant portrait of his Lordship..Also a celebrated Pfalm tune, as sung at the Magdalen and Foundling Chapels, and let by an eminent music master.

A Parapbrase on the Firf Article of the Church of England is received, as are also the favours of a new Correspordene I. C. P.; Georgius ; James Warson ; A. B.; Verax; 2.C; Americanus ; Granville ; Origin; R. Knowles ; A Chriftian Barber of Barbi an; B.Wilk*s ; Pacificus; and twenty-seven poetical pieces with different signatures ; each of which, if ad. miffible, mall appear in turn without 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 disposed to serve H. 7. or H. T. yet cannot in the way he desires. A lictle reflection will convince this Correspondent that his Acroftic Fpiftie is not adapted to the Cbriftian's Magazine: but if he will turn his thoughts to a subject of a serious nature, we are ready to give proof of our willingness to oblige him; and in our opinion, by doing this, he will be more likely to be happy in the returned kindess of Miss W-l-f.d.

Mr. R. Nußh will be pleased to accept of our thanks for his information respecting the mistake of one of our Reviewers. The price of Mr. Wishaw's, 2 vols. of Sermons is 8s. sewed.

The gentleman of Cardiganshire, whose letter is dated May 3ift, requesting an Essay on the son of Sacrilege shall k: particularly attended to.

If W. H. will acquaint us with article and page in the review of which he fpeaks in his letter, dated May the 30th, we will endeavour to comply with his withes.

Queries from Verax shall be inferted the first opportunity. We do not recollect to have Teen his kignature before; but it is not in our power, at prefent, to determine any thing about the Psalm set to music; the same we are obliged to lay to Z. C. whoin we have before pare ticularly 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 Correlpondents of the late new act, which has augmented the postage 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 ancient and modern usage, POST PAID.

INDIGNATUS, from whom we have been favoured with a very long Epiftle, is not to be blam’d, for standing forth in defence of his friend; yet we cannot approve of his stile and {pirit. Ira brevis furor eft. We are not responsible for the unguarded expresiions of our correspondents, in whose copies, unless desired, we presume not to make the least alteration; but,on the other hand, Inaignatus lhould not render railing forsrailing, “ Anger, as is observed above, is a short madness, and will not serve a friend, or any caufe. The writer of this article as as well acquainted with, and no less a friend to Dr. Priestly, than Indignatus can be ; and he is certain ihe Atrictures of our Reviewer upon the Doctor's corruptions of Christianity, will not in the least affect his bene olent feelings. Dr. Priestly is, equally with ourselves, : friend to religious liberty; he caynot therefore be offended at our combating his private opinions, and not admitting them into that Repository of Divine Knowledge, which will stea. dily maintain, defend, and preserve, as a inost sacred trust, the fundamental doctrines of the Churcb of England, well known to be founded upon Trinitarian principles. But should the language of "Christian have really offended Indignatus, he must answer him through soine other channel ; for we must decline'a contest which common fenfe will tell that enraged Gentleman; cán neither be agreeable to ourselves, nor entertaining to our readers,
