TO CORRESPONDENTS.

Criticus,-A. B. Y. Z.-D. Drummond—A Subscriber,—EpitaphsTranslations from Anacreon, will appear in our next, or an early number.

We have read with pleasure A. M. and the Essays on Imagination and on Disputations; but, we are afraid the subjects are of too general a nature to be well suited to our Miscellany.

J. MD. has been deferred, from an unexpected pressure of other materials. Alexander J. L. Rufus will not suit our Miscellany.

We shall be happy to receive a specimen of the article offered by F. G.
