mercy , long-suffering , and of great goodness : yea , like as a father pitieth bis own children , even so is the Lord merciful unto them that fear him . For he knoweth whereof we are made ; he remembereth that we are but dust . " The second passage may be anticipated to relate to the Prodigal Son , whom , upon returning to his duty , " when he was yet a great way off , his father saw , and had compassion , and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him . "
Now , Sir , I would humbly inquire , do these two passages , sustained as they are by the more formal avowals in the eighteenth and thirty-third chapters of Eze - kiel , respond to the voice of nature and reason , or do they not ? If they do , must they yield to mystery ; must they give way to supposed intimations between which and the forgiveness of sins the want of " discoverable comtecVton "
stands confessed ; * or must these intimations , and this apparent mystevy , be interpreted by , and made to yield to , them ? If they do not—if in their naked , unsupported sense , there be any thing suggested by them contrary to equity , contrary to fitness , and unworthy of the cha ~ vacter of the Creator—I am ready to be better informed ; and referring , in the meantime , to the truly satisfactory dis-. sertation contained in the commence-.

London University . To , the Editor . Sir , I am not at all satisfied of the propriety of giving way to what I consider a senseless and dishonest clamour , by
the half-and-half measure of inviting different sects to establish Theological Lectures in a species of connexion with , or at least in the immediate neighbourhood of , the University ; but if the system be begun , it seems desirable that the instruction should not be confined to one
denomination of Christians ; and I therefore wish to ask , whether the parties entitled to appropriate the remains of the Hackney College Fund might not meet and consider the propriety of fouuding with it a professorship of liberal theology ? What the present application of the fund is I do not know ; but I cannot help thinking that an appropriation of the kind suggested , under public
supervision , would be likely to be at least as salutary as the continuance of the present private disposition of the fund , whatever it be . Can any of your readers say how far that part of the fund which is composed of Brown ' s legacy is applicable to the purpose suggested , or is more pro-, perly applied at present ; and who , under his will , ougjit to determine that question ?
