NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. We are sorry the communication from our correspondent in Northumberland arrived too late for this Number. It shall appear in our next. As we are collecting materials for the subject of Contagion, we shall be thankful for his account of the feder in his own neighbourhood.

Mr. WALKER's paper has been under consideration. It appeared foo long; but press of temporary matter hus prevented our giving it hitherlo due consideration.

We can assure a Constant Reader that no want of mutter, nor desire to indulge, induced us to insert the paper to which he refers, and which to us appeared to contain very useful matter. If a C. Reader chuses to make any animadversions with his own nume, and with that politeness which has hitherto distinguished our Journal, we shall not fail to odmit them.

Olher communications of a less temporary nature, which have been deferred on account of our long analysis, shall appear as early as press of matter will admit.

In our next, the Analysis of the last Number of the Medico Chirurgical Transactions will be concluded.

ERRATA.

In the present Number, p. 444, last line of the Greek quotation, for Asoxyetoy, read Dionysii.
