NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS.

The three following articles have been unavoidably delayed; but they are al
ready in types, and will not fail to enrich our next Number: “ Memoir of
James Grahame, author of the Sabbath,"_" The Evils of Inconstancy, illus-
trated by the History of a Scots Tutor,"--and “ Remarks on the Study of some
Branches of Natural History."

In our next will also appear a short notice of Colonel William Cleland, with
extracts from his poems printed in 1697;—Conclusion of the article concerning
the Scottish Gypsies ; --Continuation of the Remarks on Greek Tragedy ;-
and Reviews of Poetical Epistles and Translations,"--of “ Dramatic Tales,
by the author of the Poetic Mirror, "--and of Byron's “ Lament of Tasso.”
We have received a very

able

paper under the signature of P. M., but as the
subjects of which it treats appear rather to belong to one particular class of
Periodical Works than to a General Miscellany, and as the writer acknowledges
that the substance of it has already been given in several other publications, we
have some doubts in regard to the propriety of inserting it, and it is for the
present postponed.

We ought to have acknowledged in our last the receipt of two papers on the
subject of Mr J. P. Kemble's merits as an Actor, one of them drawn up with
very considerable fairness and ability. These, and an article “ On Popular
Notions," are now under consideration.
Another

paper

has been sent us in answer to “ Candidus,” on the genealogy
of the Stewarts of Allanton ; but we are half afraid of enlarging further on
such subjects, since a reverend person, under the signature of Haggai M'Briar,
seems very much displeased with what papers of this sort we have already
published, and exhorts us, in somewhat imperious language, " rather to insert
a few simple recipes, useful in household economy,” such as his “ daughter
Martha's improved method of brewing ginger beer,” &c.; and, in words of
more grave authority, admonishes us “ to avoid foolish questions, fables, and
endless genealogies, and contentions and strivings about the law; for they are
unprofitable and vain."
