The Whole intended to promote the Cause of PIETY and Virtue, and undertaken By a SOCIETY of CLERGYMEN, of the Diocese of LONDON, Who are honoured with Communications for the proper Accomplishment of their Design, from

the CLERGY and others in different Parts of the Kingdom.

Lo N D ON: Printed for the EDITORS ; and Publithed by ALEX. HOGG, No. 16, Paternoster-Row;

by whon Letters to the EDITORS, Post paid, are received,



Christian Barber of Barbican appears to be very converfant with the terms of his own

art, but to render his important communications acceptable, it is necessary, in fature, that he should pay a little respect to the rules of grammar.

Granville will excuse our not inserting his letter. The Editors of this Magazine are better pleased with sense than found; and imagine their readers are not quite se credulous, as to be captivated with the unmeaning cant of enthusiasm.

Pacificus might oblige us much more essentially than by offering a piece, which of itself would make a fixpenny pamphlet. We cannot by any means insert it on account of its length. The fame answer we are obliged to give Americanus, for his laborious endeavour to affist our work,

A Lover of Truth has in vain thrown down his gauntlet, in behalf of Dr. Priestly; we Shall not accept the challenge ; because we really intend to pursue the paths that lead to peace; apprehending the words of our Lord and Master" Ye know not what fpirit ye, are of—are, in general, too applicable to all religious disputants."

Admonitor's Essay on Christian Perseverance. Mr. Weddred's Paraphrafe. Adolescens ex Univ. Oxon. E. Coll.-A Copy of the Bishop of Rochester's Letter from Eusebius.-W.M. in answer to A Spinfer, “ Whether there be Ordination in Marriage."--A Translation of the Latin Verses in our last Number, by J. Sk-n, thall, if poffible, have a place in the next month's Magazine.

The only reason for postponing the Poem on the Covenant of Grace by J. C. is its extraordinary length. It is our earneft inclination to gratify this and other friendly correspondents, from whom we have received a variety of pieces, and have not had it in our power hitherto to find room for their infertion. We beg leave to pay our respects to these kind contributors, and to assure them, we are not conscious, that any thing is wanting on our parts to oblige them, and to deserve their valued esteem.

Commentarius ; Diftor; Edward S-ch; Miranda ; C. H.; Calvin; Anti-nomos; Dupin ; 3. Barclay; a Friend; Chriffi Amator; Episcopus; R. B-kr of York; W. M; One of many; and other favours, are come to hand, and shall have due attention paid to them. It is with great pleasure we acknowledge having received some kind hints from A conftant Reader, of which we fall endeavour to make a proper use.

The vision of Somniculus is not deftitute of merit, but it is not fufficiently finished. It is necessary that compositions of this kind be more than prettily written, and we think our correspondents themselves would blame us for inferting in the Christian's Magazinc what would neither redound to their own, nos to our credit.
