not wait in the hope that the day will soon arrive when , by additions to their numbers and by liberal subscriptions , they will be enabled to provide the necessary means . But after they have adopted some method
of conducting public worship among themselves , let them try whether a few individuals cannot be found who , while they may not have it in their power to pay down a ? arge sum at once , would be willing to contribute annually or monthly to a fund for building a chapel ; and if so , let them
immediately constitute such a fund . The accumulation of these subscriptions , in a few years , would amount to a sum greater , perhaps , than what , even at the expiration of that period , they might be enabled to raise by immediate subscription ; at all events , a sum to a certain amount would
infallibly be secured : and this sum , added to the assistance they might obtain from such benevolent societies as may hereafter be formed among other congregations , would secure to
them a small comfortable chapel , which , in nine cases out of ten , is a requisite of the first importance to their perfect establishment as a society , not excepting even the obtaining the services of a regular minister . AN UNITARIAN .

Assumption of Z ) r . Chalmers ' s . [ Extract from a Letter from a friend , dated August 8 , 1817 . ] TO the admirable Review of Dr . Chalmers , [ Mon . Repos . XII . 418 —426 , ] I should have been desirous
to have added , if I had had the necessary documents , that the objection arising from the Newtonian philosophy , did not originally occur among the unbelievers , if it was ever brought
forward by them , for which I have only Dr . C / s information , and he quotes no authorities ; but by the high orthodox , who make Revelation plaintiff against Plurality of Worlds defendant . Baker ' s Reflections on
Learning , ( Ch . viii . ) is quoted by Parkhurst , under the word 2 OD against the " delusive idea" of the moon ' s being inhabited : but there is a book , under
the title of Ei $ < & £ (> $ > Elf MecriTyjf , ( written I think it was said , by Mr . Nares , ) reviewed in the Gent . Mag . fifteen or twenty years ago , the principal object of which is , to argue against the Plurality of Worlds , from the fatal
consequence that would arise of the absurdity of the supposition , that the Creator of the worlds should go about dying" for every set of his rebellious creatures .
