TO CORRESPONDENTS.

We have inserted in the present Number an Article that may require some apology; it is entitled, -A Vocabulary of Proper Names and Words, relating to the French Revolution. Besides its general utility, it will be particularly useful to the Readers of our Magazine in future, as we shall insert every Month a Memoir of some distinguished Foreigner, similar to that of Denon in our preent Number; and as the lives of almost all the celebrated Men of the present day have been more or less affected by tbe French Revolution, many Names and Words may occur in these Memoirs, which may be uuintelligible to the younger part of our Readers without this assistance.

The following Articles have been received :

Locked in; or, Dramatic Horrors.
Ou Spectres or Apparitions.
Letters from W-T. B.-J. H. L.S.

Observations on Palpit Eloquence, and Sketches of Popular Preachers shall be commenced in our next Number,

AZAR is requested to inform us where we may address a private letter to bim -one of apology and thanks.
