Chichester; 3. KENN, Bishop of Bath and Wells; 4. WHITE, 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 unprejudiced reader. These are "the Trial of the Regicides," "the Trial of the Seven Bishops," and "the Trial of Dr. Sacheverel."

July 3, 1802.

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 three 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. For "Propagators at Home" read " Propagators of the Gospel at Home,"

I am, Gentlemen,

Your most obedient servant,

The following impressive Lines are selected from Mr. Ellis's elegant
Specimens of the early English Poets: they are by Henry Delaune.
HEN the straight columns, on whose well-knit chine,
Some stately structure leans its weighty head ;
Are from 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 from the earth just men and good translate,
A sure and sad prognostic 'tis of some

Impending judgment on a realm or state.
Ere God on Sodom stretch'd his flaming 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 ;
And but one thief, that no man might presume.
