G. GIBRALTAR. TO OUR READERS. We have received “Hymns and Scripture Chants, arranged according to the Prayer-book, for Children of the Church of England.” By the rev. A. W. Brown, M.A., Pytchley. London: Wertheim and Co. 1848. We cordially recommend this little book.

We have also received two parts of " The Bible of every Land; or, a History, critical and philological, of all the Versions of the sacred Scriptures.” London : Bagsters. This work, when completed, will be exceedingly interesting.

We continue to receive the “ National Cyclopædia” (London, Knight and Co.), containing a fund of valuable information; also Sharpe's “ London Magazine," from which we have occasionally introduced some useful matter into our own pages.

TO CORRESPONDENTS.
To the best of our belief a bishop receives no fee for consecrating a church.
