TO CORRESPONDENTS. Scotus, which was accidentally delayed this month, will appear in our next.
We shall lay, Mr Wcir's statement before the public, without, however, pro, nouncing any opinion on the subject.
The Account of Yeast Powder is under consideration. It may be necessary to abridge the introductory discussion, which is too long, and too little connected with it.
Philalethes is received, and his complaint may probably be well founded; but the subject would not, we suspect, be considered by our readers as of sufficient importance.
