CORRESPONDENCE.

We are obliged to a friend under the signature of O. for noticing an expression ip •or Review of Depons's Travels, (VoI.iv. p. 65. 1. 37.) which is liable to misconception. We are aware of Martin Behem's pretensions to the discovery of Brazil and Terra del Fnego, prior to Columbus or Magellan; but by the words "this extensive »ud 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, preveoti #ur paying them the marks of respect to which their merit is intitled. We sludl »« . glad to see the same talents exerted, in a less exceptionable form.

To the Binder.—Some copies of the February Number, in consequence of an oversight, will be found to want the pages 183, 184; that leal ii tha* low stitched in with the present number.

A-fld'auditors polite—then plumes itself

W;th having sported wit to admiring crowds.

It reckons one upon a muster roll;

Struts, and looks big, and marches so erect,

The multitude, notorious for mistakes,

With gaping wonder, call the thing—a man.' p. 163.

Thereare frequent proofs of carelessness in the composition; a most glaring instance the writer will find in page 30, lines 4, 5, and 11.

Art. XIII. On Singularity and Excess in Philological Speculation; a Sermon preached before the University of Oxford, at St. Mary's, on Sunday, April 19, 1807. By Richard Laurence, LL. D. Rector of Me'rsham in Kent. pp. 40. price Is. Rivington, 1807.

T)R. Laurence's'textis Eccles. vii. 24. "That which is far off, and exceeding deep, tvho canjlnd it out?" 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 altering the sacred-text by a multiplicity of fanciful emendations.

The discourse is a production of considerable merit. The Author ai>» 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 Christian dfthoddx, so far as Be -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 Lanu relative to Contracts and Agreements not under Seal; with Ca3es and Decisions thereon in the Action of Assumpsit. In Four Parts. By Samuel Comyn, Esq. of the Middle Temple, Barrister at Law. 2 vols, royal 8vo, 11.11s. 6d. bds. Butterworth, 1807. ''pHE work now before us embraces a vast variety of useful and important 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, an'd tolerably well divested of unnecessary technicality; and the convenience of the practitioner is properly consulted by the addition of a copious and weHdigested 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.
