To thee, all-conscious presence! I devote
But, ah! how oft my lawless passions rove,

Not Berenice's locks could boast
Nor Venus *, when her charms divine,

Mr. Cooper, of Hamstall Ridware, has a Second Volume of Sermons in the Press. * The Rev. Dr. Claudius Buchanam, Vice-Provost of the College of Fort William in Bengal, by the
last Accounts from thence, was
about to proceed to Cochin on the Coast of Malabar, for the purpose of examining the ancient Hebrew Manuscripts preserved in the Synagogue of the Jews at that place.

A collection of them, with the European copies, has long been desired by the learned. Another object of Dr. Buchanan's mission will be, to enquire into the state of the native Christian Churches in the Provinces of Travancore and Malabar; particularly of the Thirty-five Congregations, denominated § the Roman Catho

Another subject of literary research offers itself among When the Portuguese first arrived in India, they burned the Writings and Records found in the Christian Churches, and amongst them, says a Romish author, some apostolical monuments, in order to destroy the evidences of their antiquity, and force them to a union with the Church of Rome.
