Mr . Jemtns on Romans vnL 9 , is strong in liis arguments to prove that the spirit of Christ in this passage does not necessarily imply the virtuous and pious temper of Jesus Christ . But he fails of setting in a
luminous point of view the true drift an < J ibree of Paul ^ meaning in introducing a sentence about miraculous gifts in this precise connexion . The gloss extracted from Grotius is condistent with the common
understanding of the passage . Dr * Evans on the Religious World Displayed , has consigned the Rev , Robert Atlatn to a pillory . . The Suggestion to Unitarians by npocrrfkuxos meets my cordial approbatioa . I have no doubt that the
compilation winch he recommends , ivould be circulated with great zeal in America . la selecting the tracts , and in adapting them to the purpose in q \ iestion , I think as much as possible ought to be omitted ., which has
not a bearing dl the pure Unitarian state of tfee question . For mstance , a smalt portton of Mr . Belsham ' s Summary View is Hyper- » U » itarianism , am repels jnany thdpaamia of readers ^ who cpul < i not resist the

the circumstance that Caivi&ism has no internal power to resist the progress of wicked Unitarianisra ? If , in Oeneva , in New England , in the Presbyterian Church of England , and elsewhere , there has been developed for the last century a spontaneous and
unconnected , yet mighty tendency towards Unuarianism , and if , at the same time , Unitariankm leads to immorality , pray , what is gained to the cause of Orthodoxy by Dr . Smith ' s course of argument ? There is something rotten , after all , at the < x > re of his religion . He can only consistently
boast of it , and rely upon it , when he can shew it to be efficacious against the instrumeat , as well as the substance of immorality . I would as Kef go down to Avernus by one step as by two . Mr . Bakevrell is very strong oh sortie topics in the concluding part of this letter .
Reply to Difficulties in the Unitarian Scheme of Atonement . This is a neat and happy answer to the questions of your former correspondent , Mv own ha 3 just embarked on the
ocean , and as far as it has any merit , is in a great measure anticipated by the present communication . Unless it be gratifying and useful to observe a coincidence between distant writers
