" Mr. Perceval," “ F. O.," and “ Clericus Felix” on Attendance at Balls, will be given in the next Number.

“ W. W. S.” is informed that there can be no doubt that D. N. D. Papa, represent the words Dominus Noster, Dominus Papa; that the form is frequently fully given, and that it is quite in unison with the forms of low Latin, Italian, French, and even earlier English, where the complimentary title was often repeated, as “ To my Lord's Grace, the Lord Archbishop,” &c. &c. It is perhaps worth noticing, that Mr. Southey, whose authority is so great, charges the commentators only with giving the pope the blasphemous appellation of our Lord God. His note, perhaps, should be transcribed, Foulis' Hist. of Popish Treasons, &c, p. 29. Extra. Joh. xxii., Tit. xiv., de verborum significat , cap. iv., cum inter non nullos, Gloss. sect. Declaramus, prope finem, The reader who refers to Foulis, will see why he has been thus minute in his quotations. The passage is found in ten editions of the canons which he had examined, four of them published after Gregory XIII. had corrected the canon law."— Book of the Church, chap. X., at the end.

“ The Church,” a weekly paper, published at Cobourg, in Upper Canada, ought to be recommended to those interested in the church affairs of that country, as being under excellent direction and authority. The Editor of the " British Magazine" would be truly obliged to any clergyman in Canada, and in any other of our colonies, who has the means of knowing what it is important should be stated and circulated in this country, and who would briefly state it in the compass of a common letter to the Editor, which would not cost the writer much time, and could always be given in the Magazine. It is impossible at a distance either always to know what is most important or to give the time necessary for abridging paragraphs from newspapers arriving from different quarters, and full of local matters.

“ J. M.," on Flacius Illyricus, is received. Will he not allow the Editor to give his valuable name in full ?

In answer to the following note,-"Sir, I hope, for the credit of the clergy, you will undertake to answer the very weak arguments with which a weak advocate attempts to defend the practice of clergymen's attending balls. I am, Sir, yours truly, A Subscriber from the First Number of your Magazine,"—the Editor would be exceedingly glad if the writer would himself answer either the letter in question or any other letter which may seem to him deserving of animadversion, and, if the arguments are weak, expose them.
