TO CORRESPONDENTS. The communication of “ Clericus Buxofus Dakiniensis" · is left with a note at the publishers. To the substance of his

letter we have no objection, but the encomiaftic part is in- . admissible, for we do not hesitate to say that the Church of England has no obligations whatever to the Genevan Reformer, whose character the more it is enquired into the less respectable it will be found.

The continuation of " Ecclesiastical Antiquities,” the review of the Bampton Leatures, and several other articles, have been unavoidably postponed this month, but will appear in our next.



FOR MARCH, 1808.

While the Church keeps steady to the Word of God, as interpreted

by the Fathers, she will ever be the best and most impregnable bulwark of sound Christianity, against Popery and Schism, as well as against all the attacks of Heresy and Infidelity: Nor shail the gates of Hell ever prevail against her, except her own sons forsake her doctrines, and give her up to her enemies.

Memoirs of the Most Reverend Father in God Dr. THO. • MAS SECKER, Lord Archbishop of Canterbury.

THIS most excellent prelate was born in the year 1693,

at the village of Sibthorp, in Nottinghamshire. His father was a dissenter, with a small fortune; and, intending his son for the ministry, among the people of his own persuasion, gave him a suitable education, in different seminaries. Among the rest, in the academy of Mr. Jones, kept first at Gloucester, and then at Tewkesbury, where Mr. Secker laid the foundation of a strict friendlhip with Mr. Joseph Butler, afterwards bishop of Durham. At the age of twenty-three, he had read over carefully a great part of the Scriptures, particularly the New Testament in the VOL. XIV.

original, and the best commentators upon it; Eufebius's Ecclesiastical History, the Apostolical Fathers, and various theological works, ancient and modern.

But though the result of his studies was a well-grounded belief of the Christian religion, yet, not being able at that time to decide on some abstruse doctrines, nor to determine what communion he should embrace, he resolved to pursue some profession, which would leave him at liberty to weigh these things more maturely, and not oblige him to declare, or teach publicly, opinions which were not yet thoroughly settled in his own mind. Accordingly, in 1716, he applied himself to the study of physic: and after attending public lec. tures in London, he went, in 1718, to Paris, where he ftudied under Winslow, the celebrated anatomist. While at Paris, he became acquainted with Albinus, Montfaucon, and other eminent men; and here also he formed a close intimacy with Mr. Martin Benson, afterwards the exemplary bishop of Gloucester. · During his stay abroad, Mr. Secker kept up a constant correspondence with Mr. Butler, who had entered into orders ; and, on the recommendation of Dr. Clarke and Mr. Edward Talbot, son of bishop Talbot, was appointed preacher at the Rolls. Mr. Butler, without his friend's knowledge, recommended Mr. Secker to Mr. Talbot ; who promised, if he chose to take orders in the Church of England, to engage his father to provide for him. This being communicated to Mr. Secker by his friend, in May, 1720, he took it into his serious consideration; and after deliberat. ing upon it about two months, he resolved to embrace the offer, and for that purpose returned to England the same year.

On his arrival, he was introduced to Mr. Talbot ; but the friendship that was then formed between them was of short duration, for, in the month of December, that worthy gentleman died of the small-pox.

Under this loss, it was some consolation to Mr. Secker, to find that Mr. Talbot had recommended him earnestly to the favour of his father. Thus did that excellent young man provide effectually, in his laft moments, for the welfare of that church from which he was himself so prematurely fnatched away; and at the same time raise up the firmeft friend and protector to his wife and unborn daughter, who afterwards found in Mr. Secker, all the tender care and allistance which they could have hoped for, from their nearest relatives,
