CORRESPONDENCE. We are obliged to a friend under the signature of O. for noticing on expression in enr Review of Depons's Travels, (Vol. iv. p. 65. 1. 37.) which is liable to misconception. We are aware of Martin Behem's pretensions to the discovery of Brazil aud Terra del Fuego, prior to Columbus or Magellan; but by the words “this extensive aud fertile country," we intended the particular district then under consideration. Our best thanks are due to the Rev. John Scott, of Hull, for his polite attention.
Rebecca" was received; the manner in which her sentiments are expressed, prevents our paying them the marks of respect to which their merit is intitled. We shall be glad to see the same talents exerted, in a less exceptionable form.

mon preached before the University of Oxford, at St. Mary's, on Sun. wsdsday, April 19, 1807. By Richard Laurence, LL. D. Rector of
Mersham in Kent. pp. 40. price 1s. Rivington, 1807. DR. Laurence's'text' is Eccles. vii. 24. “ That which is far off and ex
ceeding deep, who can find it out 3” from which the preacher takes oc*casion to oppose forced resemblances between the Christian and Heathen **systems; that mode of refinement which discovers deep mysteries in simple passages of Scripture ; the custom of drawing the most important doctrines from the mere derivation of Hebrew words; and the daring fashion of al. tering the sacréd text by a multiplicity of fanciful emendations..
The discourse is a production of considerable merit. The Author apo pears equal to his task, and pursues the object before him with a zeal equally temperate and intelligent. As a philologist he is rational, and as a Chris. tian orthodox, so far as he appears in these characters. We recommend his remarks on each of the subjects enumerated in his plan to the attention of students for the ministry, and hope this recommendation will compensate the want of several useful extracts, which, but for their length, we should be very glad to introduce into our pages. The notes display some appropriate specimens, which might easily be multiplied, of the faults in biblical criticism which the author so rationally deprecates. Art. XIV. A Treatise of the Law relative to Contracts and Agreements
not under Seal ; with Cases and Decisions thereon in the Action of
subjects relative to contracts and agreements, methodically arranged'; and is likely to be of considerable service, not only to the professional, but to the mercantile reader. .
The subject is of general interest; and the execution, on the whole, is very creditable to Mr. Comyn's abilities. We are inclined to think it would have been still more acceptable, if the cases had been compressed, and the points had been rendered more prominent. The stile is clear, and tolerably well divested of unnecessary technicality; and the convenience of the practitioner is properly consulter by the addition of a copious and welldigested Index. "The great multiplicity of topics illustrated in the course of the work, renders it impossible for us to offer any analysis that could be just to its merits and satisfactory to the reader.
