TO CORRESPONDENTS.

Le Portefeuille Francais, published in London and Worcester, shall be revised in due time. The French works that we review are generally those newly published at Paris, and which are trans. mitted from thence for our inspection. Some of the subjects that compose the melange of Le Portefeuille Francais, are not new, and have already been treated of in La Belle ASSEMBLBE, which, should it adopt any fresh anecdotes, &c. from Le Portefeuille Francais, the author will be sure to have the credit given to him.

The Sojourner is unavoidably delayed till our next Number.

The Statement of Facts relative to the case of Mrs. Scarborough, shall be treated of as early as possible; but such statements require close investigation, and caution in the perasal.

The valuable Letters and Tale of Female Heroism, from our respected Caledonian Correspondent, came too late for insertion this month, they shall certainly meet with prompt insertion.

We thank ZEPHYRUS for his bints; but it is not likely we should contradict in one Number what we are authorized in stating in another.

Persons who reside abroad, and who wish to be supplied with this Work every month, as published, inay have it sent to ihem

to New York, Halifax, Quebec, and to any part of the West Indies, by Mr. THORNHILL, of the General Post Office, at No. 21, Sherborne-lane; to the Brazils, Madeira, Gibraltar, Malta, 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, bý Mr. Cowie, at the Foreigo Newspaper Office, No. 22, Sherborne-lanc. The money to be paid at the time of Subscribing, for either three, six, nine, or twelve months.-Orders also, post paid, on the above conditions, will be punctually attended to, if addressed to John Bell, Proprietor of this Magazine, Weekly Messenger Office, Člare-court, Drury-lane, London.
