TO CORRESPONDENTS.

Tax Review of Margaret Melville, by Alicia Mant, is unavoidably postponed till our next Number.

If we insert the Young Poet's Address to his Lyre, it cannot possibly be before next month. We must say we should have expected something better from the anthor of Astarte.

It is with much regret that we are compelled to put off tbe review of the beautiful Duet of Deep in a hollow Glen, The Lake Minstrels, and Ah! where shall I fly? to onr next Number, when the Musical Review will close for this year, and w bich we trust our contributors will have found both impartially and indulgently performed.

Persons who reside abroad, and who wish to be supplied with this Work every month, as published, may have it sent to ihem to New York, Halifax, Quebec, and to any part of the West ludies, by Mr. THORNHILL, of the General Post Office, at No. 21, Sherborne-lane; to the Brazils, Madeira, Gibraltar, Malla, and all parts of the Mediterranean; to Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Portugal; and to France and Holland, at 178 6d. per Quarter, by Mr. Cowie, at the Foreign Newspaper Office, No. 22, Sherborne-lane.
