TO CORRESPONDENTS.

We had intended to give a Preface this month to the volume, but so many subjects of discussion arose in our mind when writing it, connected with the state of public feeling relative to PERIODICAL LITERATURE, that we found it absolutely necessary to desist, but hope to treat all of them fully, and in detail, in regular essays in the body of our Work.

We had resolved not to publish any verses on the late national calamity, for we found it impossible to select from the great number of poems (many of them of much merit) sent to us on that mournful event. We have however broken our resolution. Our readers will find in this Number a beautiful Elegy, by the elegant and accomplished author of “ Greece," and " The Restoration of the Works of Art to Italy,” two compositions imbued with the genuine spirit of classical poetry.

“ On Truth, a Reverie, by an Enthusiast,” is received and approved.

" Time's Magic Lanthern, No IV. Lord Bacon and Shakspeare,” in our next. We need use but few words to this valued Correspondent.

H. A.'s manly and spirited paper “On the qualifications of a Speaker of the House of Commons” in our next.

Our Aberdeen Correspondent will be attended to.
What is become of Eremus? Has his muse felt the influence of the late cold weather?

IwT4 probably in our next. We wish to send a private letter to our clever young friend. "What is his address ?

J. F. at Paisley has our thanks for his curious communication.
“ The Dying Indian” probably in our next. It possesses much vig

Our Dundee Correspondent ought to remember, “ To R” “ is human, to forgive divine."

A. H. D.'s imitation of a certain modern poet is clever, and he will hear from us soon.

Our Limehouse Correspondent, G. will be attended to ere long. We often regret being obliged to delay our attention to those for whom we entertain the most friendly feelings.

“Memoirs of Roderic Milesius O'Donaghue, late of Tralee, county Kerry, Ireland, first cousin to Ensign and Adjutant Morgan Odoherty," are received, and will follow the life of his illustrious kinsman, which we hope to conclude in a few more Numbers.

We are not in the practice of publishing that which is intended for several journals at the same time, unless when we are apprised of the author's intention. Mr F.'s Report of the Mineralogy of Edinburgh is known here, and, we understand, is incorrect. The public still want a statement from Mr Smith himself.

Our London Correspondent's interesting paper “ On the Schools in Newgate” has been received.

We return our best thanks to G. W. for his friendly hints, and though the plan of our Miscellany may prevent their being adopted, yet they shall not be lost sight of.

Want of room prevents us from acknowledging many other favours.

Poetical Notices will be given in the concluding Number of each volume. Therefore, on the 21st of September, our friends may expect to be addressed in an Irregular Ode, after the manner of Pindar, and probably in Greek, in which case there will be a free translation, with notes, illustrative and explanatory.
