ACKNOWLEDGMENTS TO CORRESPONDENTS.
T is with no small satisfaction we receive another Letter from
our valuable Correspondent AcASTUS, with a promise of a con. tinuance of his friendly Aslistance. The unforeseen Event which gave rise to his long Silence, is equally regretted by ourselves, as we doubt not it has been by our numerous Readers : and we have the pleature of gratifying them with his further Observations on Fox HƯNTING, in our present Number.
We have also inserted the Letter of a SPORTSMAN on the Inhu. manity.of certain persons to the Horse. We have too much regard for that Noble Animal, not to be pleased with many of his Řemarks; and we trust they will be considered by the generality of our Readers, as having a tendency to procure him a better Treatment in future.
If Nauticus had for a moment reflected on the Nature of our Publication, it would never have entered into his mind, that Ar Account of the Victory obtained by Lord Howe over the French Fleet was a Subject for the SPORTING MAGAZINE. However (notwith. ftanding we inform him that his MSS. is in the Hands of our Pub. lither, and will be delivered to his order), we thank him for the Opportunity it gives us to express our Joy in common with the rest of our Countrymen, on the Glorious Occasion, and to signify our Wishes that it may be only a prelude to future Successes.
A Contribution to the History of Card Play, shall appear very foon.
The FLASH SONG, which an Anonymous Correspondent has thought proper to send us, cannot have a place in the Sporting Magazine. Admitting it was now, which is certainly not the case, its Insertion would be deemed an Insult to the respectable Purchasers of our Publication.
A NORFOLK FARMER on the Destruction of Game, is received, and shall appear in our next.
As fhall a variety of Productions, which equally claim our Atten. tion; and which, for want of room, we have been under the necessity of keeping back
