The correction of the Memoirs illustrating the Portrait of Lady Emily Pusey not having arrived sufficiently early for the present Number, the insertion of the article is unavoidably postponed till our next.

Extended reviews of several recent works of interest, and of others on the point of publication, are reserved for our Supplementary Number, which will contain also a

Title Page and Index to the Volume-an Address to Subscribers-a Summary of Fashions for the last half-year, fc.

We have the honour to announce, that, amongst the Portraits now in the hands of our engravers, and in a state of the greatest forwardness for the ensuing volume of LA BELLE ASSEMBLEE, are the following:- The COUNTESS OF SURREY, from an original painting by Sir Thomas Lawrence, P.R.A. ;-Lady Georgiana Ellis, from a painting by Jackson ;–Tue Dowager Duchess of RICHMOND, from a family miniature by Miss Kendrick ;-The Countess OF JERSEY, from an original painting by Sir Thomas Lawrence, &c.--The re-engraved portrait of Lady Grantham, from a miniature by Miss Kendrick, will be ready, together with the portrait of the Countess or SURREY, for the first Number of the Third Volume of LA BELLE ASSEMBLEE, to be published on the first of January

We hope to gratify the readers of LA BELLE ASSEMBLEE, next month, with “ Rambles in the Land of Hafiz," a production by one of the first female writers of the age.

MR. BRANDRETH's beautiful poem, Lines written at Bourdeaux," shall appear in our next.

We expect also to have the pleasure of inserting in our next the analytical critique on Jouy's Tragedy of Belisarius, with translated extracts.

We shall, in the course of a few days, forward a private communication to our friend “ GREGORY SCRIBLERUS."

“ Mrs H.” will please to accept our best thanks for her“ Sketches, No. I.- Rosaline," which shall very promptly appear.

Does our good friend, “ Miss E. R.” adopt our suggestion ?

The “ Talescommunicated by “ Sophia” shall experience the attention requested by their fair author.

The Warrior's Dirge” was, as its author suspects, inserted in La BELLE ASSEMBLEE (No. IV.) some months ago. Lines to W-" commencing, “No more I'll twine these roses red," appeared in No. VIII.

The blank verse of " Sister's Love" is, we are sorry to say, very blank indeed : in truth, the greater part of it can hardly be termed verse at all. The composition of blank verse is infinitely more difficult than young writers are in general aware of.

“J. B. B." is requested to observe, that we insert no more of his communications unless we have the assurance that they are sent to us exclusively. To string verses together, and then send them to two or three or more publications at the same time, is a very pitiful and unworthy sort of ambition.

The communication entitled “ Bologna,” has been returned by post to the author. The lady should not have subjected us to the expense of postage. For general, as well as for particular information, we beg leave to state, that peremptory instructions have been left at our publisher's to refuse all letters that may not be Post-paid.

. One good turn deserves another. If the Leicester Square exhibitor, who seems very anxious to have his turn served, had met our request, not as a matter of favour, but as a matter of coinmon courtesy, we would have met his cheerfully.
