F. has imagined.We have to observe, in addition, that Mr. Grahame, or any of his friends, will have full liberty, in this work, to refute more circumstantially, if they think proper, the charge advanced by our correspondent J. F.

We hope to find room in an early number for the Elegy on a Mother's Grave; for Stanzas on the Close of the last Year, by MARCIUS; and for a beautiful Horatian Ode, entitled AUTUMN, by a STRANGER, from Dublin.

Additional instances of the Longevity of Musicians, by HARMONICUS, in our next.

The MANAGER's Friend has made it quite apparent that he is the Actor's Enemy. We respect both the parties, and must therefore reject the proposal.

The Comely Dollar is a poor imitation of Philips's Splendid Shilling.
