TO CORRESPONDENTS. Many of the pages of the present Number are occupied with an Exposé which the Proprietors have, however relunctantly, been obliged to make, not only in justice to themselves from the false allegations which have been industriously propagated, but in deference to the suggestions of many valued Friends and Subscribers; together with a Reply to a most illiberal and unprovoked attack by a Rival Publication. That our Readers, however, may not be abridged of the usual portion of Sporting Articles we have given twenty-four pages extra: though, even with this addition, we have still to apologise for the non-insertion of several articles.
ERRATA.-In p. 255, first column, of our last Number, there is an error in the punctuation, which renders two sentences unintelligible: the passages should read thus :-“ Ny own ideas, however, lead me to still think highly of him; and I hope, for the sake of his liberal and worthy owner, yet to see him (Zany) make zanies of those who consider otherwise. --A's the violent bruise and strain which he met with at Goodwood might have totally finished his career, had it not been promptly and effectually attended to, Mr. Stonehewer was fortunate in meeting with the skilful and friendly assistance of Mr. Watts,” &c.-P. 259, col. 2, line 26, for 5 the Guy horse," read “the grey horse.”
