India House.

The Biographical Notices of General Frost and GerERAL Tuaw shall be insorted in our next. GENERAL TOLERATION is inadmissible.

The dissertation on the art of building Rocks in certain piaces, which was to have been included in the " Description of the Great Desert of Westminster," must be deferre:l until another opportunity.

We are obliged to our Correspondent for the print of Napier of Merchiston ; but, as it has already been published, must decline the use of it.

The Socicly for the Investigation of the Causes, Symptoms, and Cure of the HYDROPHOBIA, has our warmest wisnes for its success; but we cannot, from its length, insert the address.

In our last Review we omitted to mention, that the Sermon “ On the Utility of Academical Institutions, &c.” was preached by BENJAMIN (PACKNELL, A.M., Minister of Weymouth Chapel

. The profit derived from it is, we understand, to be devoted to the institution for which it pleads.

JANSON's Stranger in America, and Tomkins's Rays of Genius, shall be reviewed in the next Magazine.

We have received several other works, which shall be noticed as soon as possible,

Essays, Historical, Lilerary, and Moral, we are sorry to state, came too late to be inserted this month, but shall have a place in the next Magazine; as shall the Essay on the Use of British Fir as a Substitule for Elm Timber : the Mechamism of the Eye; Mr. Richardson's, and several other pieces with which we have been favoured.

Brilannicus, Address to a faded Lily, and a number of poetical pieces from our former Correspondent, Mr. 1., are received, and shall bave due attention paid to them.
