Richard Fitzpatrick, and a Map of Spain.

To the Author of " Considerations for Officers whose Duties have called them to Employment upon or near the Scenes of Ancient Renown, &c." inserted page 624 of the Supplementary Number, the Army and ourselves are much indebted: we, therefore, earnestly solicit the continuation of his valuable assistance.

The additional highly-honourable title we have acquired to our work, is highly gratifying to our feelings, and will encourage us to a continuation of our exertions on erery point that can promote the benefit of the Officers of the British Army, and the Military Profession at large.

We shall give Publicity in the Third Volume of this work to various highly important State Papers, and other interesting Documents relating to all the fo reign Courts of Europe; their Policy, Resources, and Cabinet Intrigues.-- These Papers will be procured and drawn up expressly for the Military Panorama, and we therefore shall feel it an obligation due to ourselves, to punish with the greatest severity any plagiarisms, &c. therefrom.

In compliance with the wishes of several distinguished Officers, a List of the Subscribers and Supporters of this Work will be published with the Third Volume. The Friends to the Undertaking are therefore requested to communicate their Names and Addresses to the Editor, 33, Orchard-Street, Portman-Square. Captain S.'s Review has been received, and is under consideration.

The interesting Papers relating to the Presentation of a Medal to Captain La. tham, of the ad batt. 3d Foot, for his gallantry in defending the Colours of that Regiment in action at Albuera, were not received in time for our present publication, but will appear in the First Number of the Third Volume, published on the 1st of October.

Military Essays, Reviews of Military Works, Biograpbical Notes, Journals of Sieges, and every Military Operation, will at all times be particularly attended to; and the authors of such communications may rest assured that the Editor will preserve an inviolable secrecy as to their names, and when requested will confer with them personally on the subject of their communications.

As the Panorama is published in a manner that will always render it not only a useful and necessary, but also an elegant work for the confined library of the Military man, and to deserve a prominent place on the shelves of the scholar and the gentleman, it consequently requires very considerable time for printing and binding, and it is therefore requested that those correspondents who are desirous for an early publication of their favours, will transmit them at the commencement of each month, directed to the Editor, 33, Orchard-Street, Portman-Square.
