ACKNOWLEDGMENTS AND MINOR CORRESPONDENCE.

COMMUNICATIONS have been received this month from the Rev. Dr. Harris-Dr. W.

Brown--J. A. James--Henry Grey-G. Redford--C. N. Davies-J. Fletcher-J.

Gilbart-W. Orme-J. Bulmer-J. Yockney. Also from Messrs. J. Proctor--G. T. Angas- Pellatt and Wilks. Communications have been also received from Preston--Paignton--and Macclesfield..

We are sorry that the valuable papers from our esteemed correspondent J. were too late for insertion in the present number. They will appear in our Magazine for July and August.

The letter from the Rev. Henry Grey, of Edinburgh, respecting the visit of the Deputation from the Scottish Missionary Society in which he was concerned, will appear in our next; with which we hope to close a very disagreeable controversy, which was not commenced by us.

We will make room as soon as possible for a Protestant Dissenter. * We are glad to find (€) in good humour, notwithstanding the tittle-tattle of Will. Reporter. He will see from this number, that he is not the only correspondent we have had on the subject. We thank him for his lines, which our readers will be glad to see.

Shebna is thanked for his trouble, but his extracts are not sufficiently interesting to justify our using them.

We agree with JOANNES on the impropriety of baptising the children of such persons, as the “ Country Pastor's Query" related to; but his paper would not be considered as fully meeting the case.

We are glad the disputes about instrumental music in the congregation at Teignmouth are at an end ; and should be glad to find, that all the fiddle-strings in Dissenting congregations were cracked under the influence of the same sentiments and feelings which characterise the musicians of Teignmouth ; but we must decline in. serting their declaration.

W. * informs no Sceptic, first, that the Priests and Levites did not join in the revolt of the Ten Tribes, 2 Chron. xi. 13-16.; and secondly, that in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah, it is not implied but plainly erpressed that the Priests and Levites were partakers of the captivity of Judah and Benjamin, Ezra vii. 7, and viii. 1, 2, and chap. X. passim.

We cordially thank Theognis for his faithful advice, which shall not be lost upon us.

Our loving friend Tom Reporter, of St. Flummery's, cannot expect us to insert his communication. In fact, we do not intend to trouble our readers with the future communications of any member of his family.

We have received communications from Imus-Vir Canus -and Beta, upon the much controverted article “ On Ministers' Sons ;" but we must decline the further discussion on that subject in our pages; could our respected friend Imus know from how many quarters we have been addressed respecting it, he would, we doubt not, acquiesce in our resolution.
