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.
