EDITOR'S NOTICE.

We feel it due to certain of our Readers to apologize for some faulty impressions of the Lithographic Plate in our last Number; we allude to the Engraving of the ScarpOLDING, &c. from whence Mr. Hornor took his View of London. In our desire to illustrate a portion of the Letterpress by a sectional representation of that grand scientific structure, the time was too limited to admit of every impression being as faultless as could be wished. To supply this partial 'defect our next Number will contain a similar sectional View, but executed in a far superior style.
