EDITOR'S NOTICE.

We feel it due to certain of our Readers to apologize for some faulty impressions of the Lithographic Plate in our last Number; we allude to the Engraving of the SCAFFOLDING, &c. from whence Mr. Hornor took his View of London. In our desire to illustrate a portion of the Letterpress by a sectional representation of that grand scientific structure, the time was too limited to admit of every impression being as faultless as could be wished. To supply this partial "defect our next Number will contain a similar sectional View, but executed in a far superior style.

Communications received since our last. Copy of a Letter from Mr. Ferguson.-The Orphan, from Maria Anne. Love and the Rose.-A hint relative to Greek and Latin quotations.Poem from R. E. I. I.-Invocation to Fancy, from W. 1.-Ellen to Emma. -Lines from Mrs. Hughes. —Prose and Poetry from S.-The Shipwreck, from I, M. K.-Fragments from B.-Letters from Lichfield. Letters from R. D.-Fragment composed like Lightning

Several other Correspondents, who have favoured us with their addresses, will be answered by post.
