TO CORRESPONDENTS.

The review of Dr. Holmes' Anniversary Discourse at Plymouth was received too late for this month. It shall appear in our next. It was our intention to have attended early to this valuable production, the design of which is in perfect unison with that of the Panoplist, and in which so much justice is done to the characters and principles of the Fathers of New Eng. land. But from various causes, which it is unnecessary here to enumerate, it has been delayed to the present time.

We thank Eusebius for his six letters to his son on a seasonable subject. We shall insert them with pleasure in our future numbers.

Another interesting communication from Pastor is just received, which, with several others from different correspondents, shail enrich our next number. It is our wish to give all our readers their portion in due season.

Our friends, who are concerned for the literary character of our country, will read, with interest, Mr. Webster's communication ; while those, who give a prefer ence to serious and evangelical subjects, will find something to gratify their taste and wishes.

The request of B. T. shall be attended to.
