Oliver & Boyd, Printers.)


The three following articles have been unavoidably delayed; but they are already in types, and will not fail to enrich our next Number : “ Memoir of James Grahame, author of the Sabbath,”—“The Evils of Inconstancy, illustrated by the History of a Scots Tutor,"—and “Remarks on the Study of some Branches of Natural History."

In our next will also appear a short notice of Colonel William Cleland, with extracts from his poems printed in 1697 ;-Conclusion of the article concerning the Scottish Gypsies ;-Continuation of the Remarks on Greek Tragedy ;and Reviews of Poetical Epistles and Translations,"-of“ Dramatic Tales, by the author of the Poetic Mirror,"—and of Byron's “ Lament of Tasso.”

We have received a very able paper under the signature of P. M., but as the subjects of which it treats appear rather to belong to one particular class of Periodical Works than to a General Miscellany, and as the writer acknowledges that the substance of it has already been given in several other publications, we have some doubts in regard to the propriety of inserting it, and it is for the present postponed.

We ought to have acknowledged in our last the receipt of two papers on the subject of Mr J. P. Kemble’s merits as an Actor, one of them drawn up with very considerable fairness and ability. These, and an article “ On Popular Notions,” are now under consideration.


paper has been sent us in answer to “ Candidus," on the genealogy of the Stewarts of Allanton ; but we are half afraid of enlarging further on such subjects, since a reverend person, under the signature of Haggai M'Briar, seems very much displeased with what papers of this sort we have already published, and exhorts us, in somewhat imperious language, “ rather to insert a few simple recipes, useful in household economy,” such as his “ daughter Martha's improved method of brewing ginger beer,” &c.; and, in words of more grave authority, admonishes us“ to avoid foolish questions, fables, and endless genealogies, and contentions and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain."

No VI. will be published in Edinburgh on the 20th of September, and

in London on the 1st of October.
