NOTES TO CORRESPONDENTS.
S. T.'s Sapphics would have found a ready place, had not their politics too deep a tinge of party. We trust the continuation of success against the enemy will enable us to say to bim :
Mitte civiles super urbe curas :
Occidit Galli Bonapartis agmen. P. R. may be assured that we have not lost sight of the republication of scarce and valuable Critical Tracts. We have a great number of Fasciculi of Classical Criticism by the first scholars on the Continent from Schrader to Wyttenbach, and in our own colintry, with which we shall gratify him, and many of our readers. But we must have variety, or we should too widely depart from our original plan, which we see no reason to alter.
Porson's Greek Ode sept by B. was inserted in our fifth number, p. 233.
T.'s Prize Poem on Mors Nelsoni will soon appear: it could not possibly be inserted in our present number, on account of previous promises.
Hermogenis Progymnasmata, number 3, is unavoidably postponed till our next.
We thank our friend J. T. for his hints relative to several articles in our pages. We shall not fail to profit by his remarks.
We think the verses of Lucius creditable ; a little reading and a little practice will enable him to distinguish himself. We recommend to him Mr. Tate's Observations on the structure of Greek Sapphics, in this nuniber of the Journal.
We shall give, as soon as possible, the Dissertations of Musonius, in the original.
A young student would feel much obliged to any gentleman, who would give an explanation of the following passage from Tacitus, An. L. 1. c. 61. “ Prima Vari castra, Jato ambitu, et dimensis principiis, trium legionum manus ostentabant:"-What is the signification of prima ? Was there any other camp besides this? It appears from the extent of the principia that there were three legions. What space of ground did an army of three legions occupy when encamped, supposing them to have their full supplements according to Vegetius ?
THE FOLLOWING ARTICLES Will have an early Insertion in our future Numbers. 1. R. P. Knight's Nota et Prolegomena in Homerum with many
alterations and additions. 2. Notarum Romanarum ac Literarum singularium compendiique
scriptionis in antiq. codd. et monumentis obvii Interpretatio, ex variis auctoribus collecta.
