Intelligence.-Breach of the Sabbath.-Mr. Maturin.

Liverpool, Chowbent, Sheffield, and other places, for their kind reception of Francis Moat, and for the Christian liberality with which they entered into the object of his journey.

2. That the heartfelt thanks of this Society are hereby given to all our Christian brethren who have by contributions assisted in extinguishing the debt; and to the Committee of the Unitarian Fund for its grant of £20.

3. That it has been strongly recommended to us, and is very desirable, to increase the burial ground attached to the chapel (which at present consists of only 72 square yards); that 144 square yards of ground contiguous may be obtained, which with a plain substantial wall to enclose the whole burial ground is estimated at £55; towards which a balance of £16. 1s. 4d. remains on hand. That the assistance of our brethren who have not hitherto contributed is respectfully requested to enable us to effect this object; and that the proceeds be reported in the Monthly Repository.

4. That the expences of building the chapel amounted to

Works, I did not take into consideration how soon such a list must be furnished you, from the necessity of completing the ensuing number at the press much earlier than usual, on account of the Index.

I am also disposed to delay the publication of the List from some encouraging appearances of a desire to promote the subscription, which, I trust, may enable me very early in your next volume to announce the required number of 200 subscribers, as they now amount to 160, by the assistance of a subscription for ten copies from a gentleman who knew and respected Dr. Priestley, and is attached to his memory, but who will not allow me to mention him under any other description.

I remain, Sir, your's,

MISCELLANEOUS.

Breach of the Sabbath.

It will scarcely be believed, but the fact is certain, that notwithstanding the severity of the weather, and the critical state of the crops in Scotland, two farmers were fined last week by the Sheriff of Kircudbright £10 each for carrying their corn on the preceding Sunday, in violation of the act of the Scottish Parliament for punishing the breach of the Sabbath. The defendants in justification pleaded the necessity of the case, but the plea was overruled by the Sheriff, and the fine was enforced! M. Chron. Nov. 28.

A private letter from Dublin states that the Rev. Mr. Maturin, the author of Bertram, is likely to be deprived by his bishop of a small living which he now has, in consequence of his having written that tragedy. It was considered a harsh and bigoted proceeding in the Church of Scotland, which is more strict than the Church of England, to have degraded Mr. Home, for having written the tragedy of Douglas. Examiner, July 7.

CORRESPONDENCE.

We hope to be able to present our Subscribers in the ensuing Number, the first of Vol. XII. with a Portrait of the late Rev. William Vidler, accompanied with a Memoir.

In this Number we insert the Resolutions of the Unitarian Society at Thorne on the settlement of their accounts. The names of all the Subscribers are also sent us for insertion, but we have not room for them; indeed we feel considerable objection to this mode of filling up our pages, and recommend that in this and similar cases a printed list be stitched up with our wrapper as an advertisement. This will fully answer the end and leave us room for communications of more permanent value.

The Rossendale account will be closed in the next Number.

Mr. Wilson's strictures on the Review of his History of Dissenting Churckes, came too late for insertion. We have returned it to the Publishers for him, and we take the liberty of recommending him to withdraw it. It would, we fear, produce an effect contrary to the design of the writer. We must, at least, require him to shorten it, før a great part of it has no more reference to the Review of the History than to almost any other theological article in any one of our Miscellaneous Volumes.

Various other communications are of necessity reserved for the next Volume.
