TO CORRESPONDENTS. TIMON having called, according to invitation, at the Publishers of this Magazine, and read over the paper sent to the Editor by W--r Rd, has discovered, that, from “ Fuller's Worthies of England,” and “Ray's Proverbs," the whole of his long paper has been copied either by himself, or his “deceased uncle.” The selection from these books, it may at same time be remarked, is extremely injudicious, as it comprehends many provincial English proverbs, very uninteresting to a Scot. Something might be added in respect to his observation of these not being addressed to the learned ; altho', with submission, we should conceive his paper chiefly addressed to that class, as every one of them has a parallel proverb in Latin ; and to most of them, in addition thereto, illustrations in the French and Italian languages.
We shall be exceedingly obliged to J. E. for his proposed Life of Sir John Moore; provided it be, as we trust it will, drawn from authentic sources. We should be obliged to such of our correspondents as would communicate to us any particulars respecting General Anstruther.
The useful communicatious of Mr Meliss and of Timon will appear in our next.
J. F.,-Hidallan.,-W. D.,-L--m.,-M. F. C.,-Glotianus, will probably appear in our next, or an early number.
Pe shall probably insert some, at least, of R. Go's pieces.
