THE review of“ Thornton Abbey,” in our 2d vol. 1029, has excited animadvern sions from various quarters. We are obliged to our correspondents for their friendly intentions, and wish to pay due regard to every seasonable remonstrance: but we regret, that, because we oppose bigotry in every party of christians, we should be suspected of hostility toward any. We are not aware, that any expression in the article referred to, can reasonably be interpreted as reflecting, either on Dissenters as a body, or on any class of them in particular: if there be, it was far from our design, and we shall sin. cerely lament having given occasion to such a misconception. To one letter, which we have received from a son of the deceased author of the work in question, peculiar attention is due, both on account of the filial piety by which it is dictated, and of the moderation and respect with which it is written. In reply to the answers which he has sent. to our remarks, we would observe,--that his worthy parent, in the xhist Letter of his performance, has condemned positivity as severely as we have; and we have only ap- , plied the same censure to a different point of dispute among pious people, from that to which he applied it :--that we conceive the things in which all real christians agree, to be those which relate to the ground of a sinner's hope of salvation :--that it was only as a national establishment that we stated the author to identify the Church of England with popery; not in other respects. As to the question, whether the author represented all the corruptions of Christianity as arising from its establishment by Constantine, we are not aware that he noticed any as springing from a different source. If Mr. Satchell will examine the authorities to which we appealed, he will find, that most of the evils which he enumerates, existed in the Christian church long before the time of Constan: tine. It was to its previous corruptions that we alluded, when we spoke of its apparent danger of relapsing into paganism: and if the present state of the oriental churches be compared with those of Europe, we think that our expressions (which did not imply any real danger to the perpetuity of the Gospel) will need no other vindication.-Farther examination will also, we doubt not, convince Mr. S. that the accession of numbers; as well as of bishopries, in conséquence of the establishment of Christianity by Constantine, was very inferior to what he supposes it to have been.

Mr. S. wishes, " that the Reviewer had endeavoured to answer the arguments” (used in Thornton Abbey, against national establishments) “ instead of trying to weaken their effect.” We reply, that neither one object, nor the other, was in our view, or would hare been consistent with the principles on which our work was undertaken, and has always been conducted. It is not our business, either to attack, or to defend, any party of Christians as such. We did not blame the anthor for objecting to religious establishments, except as it might impede the general utility of his work; but for the positivity of his manner, and the inaccuracy of some of his statements. In fact, Mr. S.'s declaration, that the best informed Dissenters in the kingdom cannot distinguish whether the Reviewer is a Dissenter or an Episcopalian, appears to us the strongest confirmation that could be desired, of the impartiality and consistency of the ECLECTIC Review.

A correspondent, who expresses his general approbation in the most cordial and gratifying terms, complains that so little of our attention is devoted to theological works. We presume this hint must have been occasioned by a few of our former numbers, in which there happened unavoidably to be a temporary deficiency. More recently, the theological department has occupied from one-third to one-fourth part of our work, which we conceive to be as much as can, with propriety, be allotted to it, consistent with that attention to other subjects for which we are pledged in our prospectus.
