C. B. King, of Castle-Atreet, Holborn, who describes himself to be only fifteen years old, would do well to alter his condue. The fraudulent attempt to appropriate to himself a poem written by Dr. Grainger, and printed more than forty years ago, can be productive only of ignominy and disgrace.

The correction of the Sonnet in this month's Magazine came too late ; the other Mall be attended to.

The piece mentioned by Themistocles never came to our hands.
ERRATUM, p. 409, 1. 3, for Samuel Darley read Samuel Darby.
