ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS.

W. H desires us to inform our readers, that the quotations given in his paper on the

“Means of promoting the prosperity of the Established Church,” (No. for April, p. 212) from a publication entitled “ Pluralities indefensible,had been quoted by the author of that work frum a treatise written in defence of pluralities. They are therefore to be considered as historical facts, allowed by two contending parties, and applied by him to a subject of a different nature.--- The paper of W. H. will

appear. We are truly rejoiced to be able to inform W. W. that the object of his paper, viz. the

prohibition of Sunday drilling, has been attained. We must decline inserting the lines of W.C. The letter of an ABECEDARIAN will probably be inserted. We would suggest, however,

to our correspondent, that it is not a very liberal mode of arguing a point, nor, as far as respects us, is it likely to be very effectual, to declare that, if our opinion on the subject of his letter shall prove different from that which he has ex ressed, he will withdraw his order for the Christian Observer. 'He is certainly at liberty to do so

without the formality of a previous notice. G. M.; M. M.; R. Q. ; LYDIA; S. C. W. Jun.; G. B. ; and a paper on the Miracle

of restoring sight to the Blind, are under consideration. S. N. C. has probably read with care the work to which he alludes. Some account of

it from his own peu might therefore be desirable. It will obtain from us a candid

consideration. CHARTOPHYLAX; and F. H. ; will appear at some convenient season.
