ANSWERS TO OUR CORRESPONDENTS. Gaunt Notegore is entitled to our warmest thanks, for his valuable communications, a part of which he will readily perceive that we have availed ourselves of, in the present number.

The communications of W. B; will le very, favourally received. A. B. C's, plan is inaulmissible, as it would necessarily, from the very nature of his scheme, take up much more room than what it now aoes, and what can conveniently, be allotted to that department, in our Magazine.

Epitaph in a Traveller,shall appear in our next. It came too late for the present numler.

T. B. will very highly ol·lige us ly drawing the diagrams (whenever they occur) on the smallest scale possible.

In answer to a gentleman who sul'scribes himself a Constant reader of our Magazine;" and who wishes to le informed, whether the Remarks on the Pursuits of Literature," which, as it appears from the ansuers noticed to out, Correspondents, in the month of February last, were offered by our learned and ingenious Correspondent, at Oxford, are entirely laid aside," or whether they are still lo l'e expected ; we have to reply that, at present, we are not enabled to gwe a satisfactory answer to this Enquirer, as we have not yet, bern favoured with the MS. in question. The

very valuable conmunications of x. C. shall appear in our next. The papers which we have been favoured with by Mentor, on the commercial relations of this country, our intercourses with foreign nations, the advantage, and disadvantage of trading companies, &c. are under consideration.

Several of our olliging correspondent's productions, in prose and verse, are received, to all of which due attention will be paid to their respective merits.
