NOTICEŞ TO CORRESPONDENTS. Communications have been received from Messrs. H. Richardson, J. Allison. J. Price, J. F. Browne, P. Tyler, Geo. Francies, J. Dawson, and J. G. Fuller. Also from W.G.-H. Y.-J.T. L. and ****.

Scrutator's article is under consideration.

We have received two leters during the past month, on our Roview of Phre. nology in the last two Numbers. The one is from a gentleman, who has favoured us with his name and address, and who, though a distinguished member of two Phrenological Societies, and of course a firm believer in the system we have attempted to disprove, bas the liberality to express his "admiration of the manner in which, we have treated the subject" which he is pleased to say,

every candid mind must admire.”

The other is from one who has thought proper to conceal his name under the appropriate signature of “Pro bono Publico;" but who is evidently an antiphrenologist, for. he has directed the entire force of his ipse dixit against the science, by calling it “nonsence" (this is his own orthography, clearly written), and yet he is exceedingly angry with us for having attempted to prove it such. His inquiry_" What, Sir, allow me to ask, has phrenology to do with religion, and a religions publication ?"-has been already anticipated in the apology we offered for the length of the artiele at its conclusion. To which we may add, that error, under every form, even though it assumes a philosophical guise, if it be inimical to the prirciples of divine truth, and calculated to weaken their evidence, or loosen their hold upon the pipus mind, becomes a legitimate object of attack from periodicals devoted to religious purposes. The demolition of such errors, when it falls in the course of our official duty, is a part of the service we owe to truth, not less than a direct demonstration of its doctrines. It is not to be expected, however, that every such article, in any periodical, will be suited to the taste, or level with the capacity of all its readers.

This brief explanation we think is more than is fairly due to a captious correspondent, who has attacked us under the shield of a fictitious title, whose let. ter is written in a strain of entire invective, alike regardless of the principles of Christian charity, and the laws of the English language.

“ Where men of judgment creep and feel their way,
The positive pronounce without dismay:
Where others toil with philosophic force,
Their nimble nonsense takes a shorter course ;
Flings at your head conviction in the lump,
And gains remote conclusions at a jump.”

Fen Court, Sept. 24, 1829. Subscriptions received during the month for the (Bath) Aged and Infirm Baptist

Ministers' Society.
