London: Priated by W. M ́Dowall, Pemberton Row, Gough Square, Fleet Street, TOR J. DAVIS, MILITARY CHRONICLE OFFICE, ESSEX STREET, STRAND; AND TO BE HAD OF THE BOOKSELLERS,


SEVERAL letters were received so late in the month that their insertion was necessarily deferred to the next. The following articles are amongst those thus deferred-Memoir on the operations of Sir R. Wilson iu Portugal; Collection of Letters illustrating the principal battles in the Campaigns of 1809, 10, and 11; Military Topography of the seat of War in Russia; and the Journal of the French and Russian Campaign, which terminated with the peace of Tilsit. All these will be given in our next, together with the continuation of the Journal of the Eighty-third Regiment. It would greatly accomwodate us if the excellent writer of this journal would have the kindness to transmit us some more of it with as little delay as possible.

The 12th Number of the MILITARY Classics is published this day; it contains the continuation of Plutarch's Lives,

D'ANVILLE's Mars and GEOGRAPHY of the ANCIENTS is in preparation for the use, of the readers of the Classics.

The Spanish GRAMMAR, for the use of officers, will be ready for delivery, price Two Shillings and Sis-pence, on Monday the 10th of this month (August).

We are employed, at the request of a correspondent, in making a collection, which we think will be acceptable to the greater part of our readers.—The Military Chronicle commenced in November 1810, from which time till the present, all the Gazettes have been given in full. But the present Spanish war commenced in November 1808. It is our purpose, therefore, to print the Gazettes from this date, (Sir J. Moore's expedition) up to November 1810, so as to join on to the commencement of the Military Chronicle. The Military Chronicle will then contain the complete official history of the war in the peninsula. About eight pages in three of our Numbers will coutain them.
