WE have received two Letters inclosing Specimens of Poetry, and shall be glad to have a personal communication with the Writer.

Three Letters, under the signature of A Well-wisher, Un Ami, and A Man of Fashion, (evidently written by the same person) are received. The Editor proposes to adopt the policy of Frederic the Great with respect to all Communications of this nature.

The Account of Montreal shall appear in our next. The Communications of this Writer, on the Natural History of that part of the world, will be received with pleasure.

We have been reluctantly obliged to abridge some of the Papers for this Month, notwithstanding we have given Sixteen Pages of Letter-press more than the prospectus announced. This has arisen in some degree from the late period of the Month in which they were communicated. Our Correspondents will particularly oblige us by sending, in future, such Communications as are intended for the following Month, before the 15th.

Hints for the Improvement of Beauty are received, and will appear in our next; also, a Letter on the real Causes of the Situation of the West India Planters, in reply to some Observations in the Monthly Review for last Month.


WE propose to begin the Deaths, Marriages, Bankruptcies, and some general Tables, from the 1st January, 1809.
