Weddings, by a Farish Clerk, No. II.certainly in our next. We regret its delay; but we are unavoidably in arrear with the favours of many of our correspondents.

For the guidance of our friends in general we take leave to say, that we can offer no opinion or make any promise respecting articles, the whole of which may not at once be submitted to our inspection.

Lines on returning from Abroad,” by “R.,” will appear very shortly-most probably next month. We feel exceedingly obliged by the attention of the respected and valued friend by whom they were transmitted. The continuation of “ Wanderings in the Land of Hafiz ” has been, with many

other favours, unavoidably postponed. We hope to present it in our succeeding Number.

We are sorry to remark, for the delay is vexatious, that a repeatedly promised communication, which ought to have been prompt, has not yet reached us.

The conclusion of “ The Astrologer” may be looked for next month.

We are glad to hear again from our obliging old correspondent in the North,“ B. G.” Her story of The Haunted Isle" has reached us in safety.

A private letter has been despatched to “ BridgeT.” She shall receive the utmost attention in our power. Unfortunately for us, and for our fair contributors, capabilities do not always keep pace with wishes. We cannot command space commensurate with our desires.

Sketches from my Diary, No. II.” will, we trust, meet the eye of the author on the first of the approaching month.

One of our country friends will perceive that we have taken the liberty of altering his signature. He will know the reason why.

“ Matilda,” who dates from Chapel Field, in the neighbourhood of Leeds, may be assured that we shall be glad to hear from her.

It affords us sincere pleasure to learn that the author of “ The Smuggler's Daughter" has arrived in safety upon the French coast. We bope she does not contemplate the smuggling over of any contraband articles.
