TO READERS AND CORRESPONDENTS. R. Rose will perceive from our present number, that we shall cndeavour in future to remedy their reguiarity complained of. A reference to the title on the wrapper will shew to whoia lotters for Elas Editor are to be addressed.

Felir would oblige us by forwarding the remainder of the article, the beginning of which bas been si ce tine in our possessiou.

We fear that the selections of Q. Z. though excellent in themselvos, might be objecied 10, as deficient, in that novelty wbich is 50 essential a requisite of a periodical publication,

C. A. is probably not aware that the pumphlet meuliwaed in his letter was reprinted a few years since in London.

The gentleman who has screral times inquired respecting the promised article on the New Bridges, i inforned, that it has been deferred solely in compliance with the wishes of the correspondent who live enzaged to furnish it.

S. R.'s Ode on peace is inadmissible.

X. Y. 2. is informcd, that the number completing our second volume will be published on the 1st o January, and that the transactions of different years will thus be kept quite distant.

The Extracts from the Prospects of a Itill in Fife, shall have as early a place as possible.

J. P.'s anccdote of Dr. Johnson-Dr Perkins' second letter on the Oriental Languazes-The account of Mr. Broad's invention, and various other papers, are intended for our next number.

We cannal help entertaining some doubts of the originality of Leonius's communication.

Robertus is iequested to accept our best thanks for his valuable communications, a continuance which will be highly acceptable.

We hope we shall not be accused of want of galiantry, if we decline the insertion of Emilia's verse She does not seem to be aware that one of the pieces which she has translated, is itself only a ta iwion of Pope's well-known Ode on Solitude.
