We have just received our learned Correspondent J. P.'s interesting communication: The extracte from " Travels in England in 1641" will appear in our next.
“ Remarks on Sismondi's Italian Republics,” and Dr Fleming's Ornithological article, have been received, and will meet with our earliest attention.
Mr M.'s paper on the extent of Parental Authority is under consideration. “On Poets and Poetry” probably in our next.
The “ Remarkable Occurrence,* communicated to us by O. is a very good story, but it is not a true one, and, therefore, cannot be inserted in our Miscellany in its present shape. We are far from da nouncing all fictitious narratives; but we will never, for the sake of effect, so far break faith with the public as to lend to fiction the sanction of real history. Our Correspondent, however, can be at so
We will correspond privately with J. 1.-W. P.-J. M.-E. J. & P. respecting the several commenications with which they have favoured us.
The Parliamentary Intelligence is unavoidably delayed till next Number.
The Correspondents of the EDINBURGH MAGAZINE AND LITERARY Miscellany are respectfully requested to transmit their Communications for the Editors to ARCHIBALD CONSTABLE and Company, Edinburgh, or LongMan and Company, London, to whom also orders for the Work should be particularly addressed.
