[?] SIR— Will you allow mo to correct somo mistakes which occur in tho comments in your issuo of Suturduy week, on my lecture 1 at Grenfell on the lltli iiiBt.

All that I undertook wus, to lecture on Infidelity, ' with a view to answer some of Puiuo's objections to Chrisfiunity.' I was therefore confined to u definite aspect of tho subject. I do know something of the magnitude of the ovidonco of Christianity, but to deal with tlio wmolk subjcct was not, of course, my intention.

At length, read ing an account, in ono of tho Irish papers, that the land agent of an English uobleman had beon shot, and another woundod, I came to tho conclusion that my Dublin correspon dent was actually afraid to go into the coun try, and look after my intorest.
