The following have been received :—" Katolikoç, " (on the 5th November Services), “ Silur," “ M.," (on the Ember Weeks) “ E. S.," " A Country Curate," “ Clericus," Norfolciensis," “ Amicus Ecclesiæ,” “ Catholicus Anglicanus," " G. C. S.” and “ D. P."
Many thanks for the abstract of “ Pietas Londinensis." “ C. J. H.” shall hear from the Editor before long.
Other letters and papers have been received, besides that of “ Silur," relative to the Custom of Wakes, or Fairs, which appears to be exciting much attention just now, especially in the County of Hereford. They shall receive due attention as soon as possible.
The letter on “ Altar and Sacrifice” has been unavoidably postponed. A correspondent informs the Editor, that he has before him a copy of the " Treatise of Christian Consolations,” which is there ascribed to Bishop Hacket, as it is also in “ Bromley's Engraved Portraits.”
Will “ H. V. B." look into Events ?
If the angry correspondent from Bradford will look into Events, he will see that his suggestion, as to a reference for information, has been complied with. When persons are very angry, it is of little use to reason with them ; but it may be well to state to him, that the Editor does not collect the Events himself, but that be er. ercises such general superintendence and supervision of them as time will allow. He cannot, of course, always know the character of a paper from which an extract is given. In the present instance the transaction was public, and publicly stated in a newspaper; and as it was traced to temporary alienation of mind, a part of the scandal it might have caused was obviated. Its appearance in this Magazine has drawn forth another account, written in a better spirit, and more authentic. Had the angry person, who does not give his name, sent such an account at first, it would have been gladly printed; but it is impossible that any one person can know the exact circumstances of all events that take place everywhere. It may however, be, confidently stated, that it is the general practice of this Magazine to exclude, where it is practicable, all statements offensive to individuals; and its whole course may be appealed to in confirmation of the statement. If this gentleman would undertake the management of a Magazine for a single month, he would, perhaps, learn to be a little more reasonable in his expectations, something less harsh in his judgments, and rather more charitable in his expression of them. The very best thanks of all parties are, however, due to the correspondent who has kindly furnished the account now given.
“ Monitor" must be under some strange mistake. He either cannot understand a plain statement, or he writes from memory, which is an inconvenient practice, when one begins to reprove others. The Magazine did not promise an additional quantity of letter-press, in consequence of giving up the plates of Parish Churches, with articles relative to matters of interest in those parishes. What was promised was, that the money expended upon engravings should, for the future, be expended in procuring more Revies. “Monitor” will see that the department of Reviews has been increased. He forgets, also, the statement, that this (the “ Parish Churches") was the only department of the Magazine in which the Editor was dis. appointed of a sufficient supply of matter. At the same time, he will be very glad to give insertion to such articles, from time to time, if supplied by those who are able to render them interesting. They are so to himself; and he regrets, as much as “ Monitor," the necessity of discontinuing them.
ERRATA. In the Number for June, 1836, page 696, the name of the Rev. J. Morton, B.D., P. C. of Chorlton cum Hardy, Manchester, was, by mistake, inserted amongst the “ ClergyMEN DECEASED,” instead of being placed under the head of " PREFERMENTS.
