amounting to about £35. The event here recorded, is one to which the friends of truth must advert with the most lively interest. A very few years ago the profession of Unitarian principles, in a population of 50,000 souls, was confined to one or two individuals. In the chapel now erected upwards of seventy persons and families have taken sittings, and an opportunity will be afforded to many an one of hearing and judging for himself. What has already been done lays a foundation for gratitude and hope, and furnishes a claim to the liberality of the Unitarian public, which, we trust, for the sake of truth and piety, will not pass unregarded.

Quarterly Meeting, Manchester. THE Quarterly Meeting of Ministers, usually denominated Presbyterian, was held in Cross-street Chapel, Manchester, on Wednesday, December 24th. The devotional part of the service was conducted by the Rev. John Gaskell, of Dukinfield; and the Rev. Johu James Tayler, of Manchester, preached from Rom. i 16. After service, the Annual Meeting of the

Lancashire and Cheshire Unitarian Book and Tract Society took place in the Crossstreet Chapel Room. The ministers of the Quarterly Meeting, and a few lay gentlemen, afterwards dined together, and spent the day in a very friendly and agreeable manner.

Unitarianism in Ayrshire.
(See p. 122.)

Two Sermons were preached on Fri day the 7th of November, at Old Cumnock in Ayrshire, after the service of dedication, by Mr. Mardon, of Glasgow. The first discourse, from Matt. xviii. 3: "And Jesus called a little child unto him," &c. The evening discourse, on the want of Scriptural Evidence for the Doctrine of the Trinity, was listened to with profound attention, by more than a

hundred men. The late clergyman of this parish, was what Bishop Watson called "an esteemed Socinian;" the present is an avowed Orthodox minister. The father of the child recommended to the Divine blessing on this occasion, was for many years in the East Indies, where he had ample opportunities of witnessing the debasing influence of heathen idolatry; his attention has been lately, directed to Unitarianism, and being convinced of its truth, he is laudably anxious to hold fast the purest religion, in its purest form. Judicious Unitarian Tracts are much required for this place, and for many others in the West of Scotland.

THE "Lancashire and Cheshire Unita

rian Missionary Society" has just published an interesting report of its proceedand operation little more than a year, ings. The Society has been in existence and the following places have been already supplied, by their preachers, regularly or occasionally: Middleton, Swinton and Irlams, Astley, Leigh, Blackburn and the neighbourhood, Wigan, Oldham, Hollinwood and Todmorden. Two congregations, Park Lane and Hindley, were supplied by the Society, while they were without regular ministers. At several places, Sunday-schools have been established, two of which contain about one

hundred scholars each. Some libraries have been also formed: and in one or two of the congregations class-meetings have been held for religious conversation and reading.

CORRESPONDENCE.

Communications have been received from Messrs. Hampson; Dunn; and Duplock from S. H. (Exeter); Clericus; G. M. D.; and Bereus.

:

The letter of "An Original Subscriber, &c.,” is put into the hands of the Editor of the work in question.

[ocr errors]

Several communications have been made to us on the subject of a late recantation of Unitarianism, but our sincere pity for the unhappy man whose name has been so indecently proclaimed by the Methodists to the world will not allow us to risque the possibility of disturbing his last moments by exhibiting his true character.

We have received, through a bookseller, W. W.'s MS. volume. We have hitherto been able only to read a few passages, but the impression upon our mind is, that we shall be disposed to insert the Correspondence contained in it, in some successive Numbers of our next Volume.

We have received from our friend and correspondent, Professor Chenevière, of Geneva, an Historical Account of the late Theological Disputes at Geneva, which will appear in a Translation in the volume which will begin with the next Number.

In our next Number, the first of Vol. XIX., will be given an Engraved Portrait of RAMMOHUN ROy, the Hindoo Christian Reformer.
