NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have received a letter from Oxoniensis on the subject of the Controversy respecting Original Sin, which was reviewed and concluded in our last Number. Our reason for refusing to insert his communication cannot be better expressed than in his own words. “ Such a practice would lead to endless replication." But we are willing to publish the substance of his letter. He contends that his summary of N. R's doctrines was not a misrepresentation of thein: and that he has himself been misrepresented by being “ treated as if he maintained the doctrine of total corruption in its fullest extent and darkest character.” On the first point we shall merely refer our readers to the passages in dispute ; if they are satisfied that Oxoniensis has not been guilty of misrepresentation, we are contented to leave them in that opinion. If they conceive that our observation on the subject was correct, we trust that they will have no difficulty in going a step farther in our company and acquitting him of all wilful and intentional mis-statement. On the second, it must be observed that we have not treated O.xoniensis as maintaining the doctrine of total corruption in its fullest extent and darkest character; nor have we said that he asserted the doctrine in any shape whatsoever. But we certainly did think that he believed and defended it, and are happy to find ourselves mistaken. He expresses himself perfectly satisfied with Bishop Jewel's summary, and contends that Rom. vii. cannot be applied to characters truly renovated without affording a cloke to the grossest autinomianism. He also requests us to say that he shall not return to the consideration of the question before him, either in our or in any similar publication. We must not omit to state, that he speaks of N. R’s last letter as greatly diminishing the weight of the objections to his opinions and “ cordially accepts and returns his candid acknowledgment, that they are both engaged in the pursuit of truth ouly.”

M., M*., and $. K. shall appear.
R. O, has been received, and is under consideration.
