BENTLEY'S NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS.

The Ten alle soolin The coarse remarks of an American periodical respecting certain articles which have appeared in our pages are so utterly be. neath contempt, that, were our circulation confined to this country alone, we should not have thought it necessary to notice them. The charge against us, that of pirating from their publication, is false, and the Editor must know it to be so. An arrangement for the simultanevus publication here and in America of the articles in question, was a proposition made, and earnestly pressed, by themselves, through the highly respectable medium of Messrs. Putnam and Wiley, and has never yet been withdrawn.

We are happy to announce that our next Miscellany will con. tain a contribution from Mr. Peake, entitled " The Toledo Rapier.”

Our readers will also be gratified to learn that we have received further contributions from the clever author of “ The Spalpeen."

“ The Veterans of Chelsea College" will appear again in our

next.
