We beg to thank our friends at Exeter.—The Congregational Magazine in our next. The impiety of “ Morgante" shall be exposed.

We should recommend “ An Old Subscriber" to adopt his first plan, which appears to us to be confirmed by the whole bearing of Section VI.

As to the difficulties of Lord Harrowby's Act, if our Correspondent will state them we may be induced to illuminate it.

T'he parcel from E. E. has been received, for which we beg him to accept our thanks. Its contents shall be noticed. We have not seen the Microscopic Cabinet.
