TO CORRESPONDENTS & SUBSCRIBERS. The following query has been sent to us by a respected friend: “ Has not the writer of the excellent and instrActive Exposition of the Gospel of Matthew confounded, through some momentary but singular oversight or inadvertence, the character and prophecies of Elijah with those of Isaiah, in his remarks on chap. xvii. 3, 4? See C. P. August, p. 345, from line 7 to end of paragraph.”

At the close of the Fifteenth Volume of the Christian Pioneer, the Editor gladly renews the expression of his thanks to those val. ued friends who have so kindly contributed to aid his labours, and by their respective communications imparted increased value to the Magazine. He trusts to their continued assistance; and now acknowledges with pleasure communications from M-m; C. L.; F. H.; E. T.; F. B.; T. G.; R. W. W.; E. W. G.; Lectures VII. and VIJI. on the Agents of Civilization; Conversations and Tales illustrative of Christian Faith and Christian Practice, Nos. 4, 5, 6; the Closing and Inaugural Sermons at Newcastle; and various other Works for notice in the department of Review. At all times the Editor will be happy to hear from A. M., J. B., and S. G.

The Editor has reason to fear, that even to the members of many Unitarian congregations, the Pioneer is unknown. It is chiefly to the active efforts of those who value it, and desire its continued publication, that he can look for its wider diffusion and more extensive influence. He trusts he may anticipate the good offices of many friends in this particular. The price of this periodical can be no obstacle with numbers, by whose aid it might be rendered an instrument of no slight importance in the dissemination of Christian truth and morality.-3d, By advertise. ments for the Cover. Though the circulation of the Christian Pio. neer is not inferior to the other Unitarian periodicals, and enters many districts where they are not seen, it has hitherto been favoured but slightly in this respect.
