TO CORRESPONDENTS. The last communication of our ingenious correspondent J. L. is scarce ly suited to our Miscellany, especially as it is proposed to extend through more than one Number. We should be more happy to receive poetry, prose communications similar to his last.

J. M'De's two pieces are received, and are under consideration. Thes do not appear to us quite equal to the general tone of former communien tions; and we have, therefore, some doubt, whether his reputation would be promoted by their publication,

If Adiacritos will enter more into particulars, so as to give the publie an opportunity of judging how far his charges are just, we will insert ks communication. S. N. M.-P. D. will probably appear in an early Number.

M.-Alpinus.-H. G.T.G.-C. will not suit our Miscellany.
