CORRESPONDENCE. Communications have been received from Mrs. Mary Hughes; J. N.; I. D.; and Hellenistes,

The poem sent us some time ago, transcribed from a Bristol Journal, is a translation by Mr. Bowring from the Russian of Derzhavin, and is extracted in our Review of the first volume of “ Specimens of the Russian Poets," XVI. 175, 176.

The paper of Bereus (J.T.) is not altogether suited to our purpose, and is therefore left for him at the publishers'.

We cannot give any opinion of the papers referred to by A Constant Reader Cheshire; but he may satisfy himself by looking into almost any number of our work that we do not reject communications, otherwise eligible, because they contain opinions not in unison with our own.

Many of the earlier Nurnbers of The Monthly Repository having been lately purchased by the proprietors of the work, subscribers who may wish to complete their sets, are requested to make application (post paid) to the Printer, who has also a complete series of the work from the commencement to dispose of.
