Chichester; 3: Kenx, Bishop of Bath and Wells; 4. WHITĖ, Bishop of Peterborough ; 5. Turner, Bishop of Ely. The other two who retained their bishoprics, were LLOYD, Bishop of St. Asaph, (translated afterwards. to Litchfield, 1692, and died bishop of Worcester in 1717 ;) and TRELAWNY, Bishop of Bristol, who after being translated first to Exeter, in 1689, and to Winchester in 1707 : died in 1721. It was the CHURCH OF ENGLAND, and her ORTHODOX CLERGY, which « stood in the gap" at that time, and fought single-handed against Popery and Arbitrary Power, at a period when the Papists and Dissenters combined together, inscribing on their banners" Liberty of Conscience." • There are three volumes of trials, a perusal of which cannot fail to give the Reader correct notions of the constitution of England both in Church and State: I mean an unprrjudicell reader. These are " the Trial of the Regicides,” “the Trial of the Seven Bishops,” and “ the Trial of Dr. Sacheverel.”

I am, Gentlemen, · Fuly 3, 1802.

Your most obedient servant,

A LONDON CURATE.

P. S. In your last number, p. 315, the paragraph beginning “Of Predestination” should have been printed as part of that which precedes it; and the marks (" ") of quotation should have embraced the two next; those threc paragraphs exhibiting the 17th Article of Religion.

In two or three places the first marks of quotation appear, whilst the concluding ones are omitted.

Page 316. För “ Propagators at Home": read “ Propagators of the Gospel at Home.

The following impressive Lines are selected from Mr. Ellis's elegant

Specimens of the early; English Poets: they are by Henry Delaune. e “ W HEN the straight columns, on whose well-knit chine,

. Some stately structure leans its weighty head; Are froin their centre mov’d, or made incline,

The pile soon sinks, and shrinks to its first bed: So, when you see death's agents daily come,

And froin the earth just men and good translate, • A sure and sad prognostic'uis of some

Impending judgment on a realm or statc. Ere God on Sodom stretch'd his faming hand,

He had a care to send just Lot away; .
So mostly still when he will scourge a land,

Whom he best loves, he puts out of the way.
Early set forth to your eternal race:
.. Th' ascent is steep and craggy you must climb.
God, at all times, has promis'd sinners grace

If they repent; but he ne'er promis'd time. :
Cheat not yourselves as most, who then prepare

For death, when life is almost turn'd to fume: : . One thief was saved that no man might despair; . i And but one thief, that no man might presume.
