TO CORRESPONDENTS.

WE have to apologize to the Author of the heroic poem on Waterloo, for ascribing the passage, at page 791 of our last Number, to Walter Scott: though it is more than probable that the Anonymous Author will esteem it as a compliment rather than an injury.

The letters of Mr. Fearn and Mr. George Waiker have been received, and shall be attended to without loss of time.
