T . O , would probably be gratified by Dr . Worcester ' s book on " The Atoning Sacrifice . "
We must refer ' . ' Thanatos " to the Unitarian Association . The spirit of " A Friend to Truth " is excellent ; but we have treated largely on the subject , and can only hope that , as a private communication , its scriptural and ' Christian temper had their due effect . Received £ 5 from " A Friend . to City Missions , " and £ 5 from W . M ., for the U . A . Committee , to aid in the establishment of a City Mission . Communications have been received from " Clericus Cantabrigiensis , " T . N ., " Te Tace , " The Review of Beard's Family Sermons , vol . II ., in our next . The suggestion of D . O . is , we believe , anticipated . Several articles of intelligence are unavoidably postponed .
72 Correspondence .
To the Editor of the Monthly Repository .
iSir , —Nearly five weeks have elapsed since I began the letter which you obliged me by inserting in the last Number of the Repository ; but the information I have since received has served only to confirm the general correctness of my statements . I have , however , to request the insertion of the following remarks and corrections , which I will put down in the order in which they occur . P . 840 . In speaking of the " Corporation , " I referred , as I suppose the reader would ) only to the body of Aldermen ; and I need scarcely add , that it was to them solely in their public character . Some of my friends think my expression—
-. * ' living in little intercourse with men of general intelligence "—too strongly stated ; and it is not correct as respects some individuals : at any rate , as it intrenches upon their personal relations , I beg the reader to erase it , as not very suitable to the object in view . P . 842 , for Farlay read Farley . P . 843 , at the bottom , for Welch Dock read Welch Back . i - in the second line of the page , Bath is spoken of as having Mr . Peel ' s police : this is not correct ; but Bath has a good police .
P . 844 , near the bottom , read though I believe with sabres drawn . I thought so once from what I said ; but was led to alter my opinion : the first opinion was , I believe , the correct one , P . 845 , near the bottom , erase " of the 3 d dragoon guards . " Colonel Brereton had , as resident chief of the staff * , the command of all the military . P » 846 , lines 3 emd 4 : the soldiers of the 14 th fired , on St . Augustine ' s Back , in the way to College Green , on the Sunday morning ; but as it appears , with great forbearance .
H ? . 848 . The dSrence o £ the Bishop ' s Palace mentioned near the top of the page , must have been later : perhaps after eight . But few of those engaged seem to agree as to the exact time . With the closest regard to accuracy , it will probably be found that the accounts of good witnesses vary greatly in reference to the hour -when the events of that horrid night occurred . The Palace was set on fire before that defence , but the flames were extinguished ;—and for the word actually in line 12 , read finally . P . 849 , note , a Baptist , a Quaker , read two Baptists . Before midnight , others Also had contributed to check the evil ; and , as they believe , to prevent the firing ¦ of the Cathedral .
P . 850 . Soon after half-past six , on the Monday moi * ning , I saw the dragoons charge in Princes Street , as I have stated . I had just heard that the Square was quiet : but previously to that quiet , I find , that charge had occurred in the Square which Major Mack worth directed : and that cnarge , which was made some time before and after six , many regard as of great importance fov the prevention of evil . The exact tru ^ th will ere long be known . My opinion , however , as far as it respects the attack on the Square , has no adequate foundation . P . 851 , line 5 , for leave , read keep in . Some-errors in ; style I leave unnoticed . The foregoing are all that can mislead , fes far as I have the means of knowledge . Your readers will , by an acquaintance with my statements , better understand the reports which , I presume , will be fully given in the London papers of the proceedings of the Special Commission , which commence on the 2 d of January . —I * . jCarpentbr .
