*** In the Account we gave of the Gentlemen who spoke in the Royal Society, we omitted Dr. HORSLEY, the principal among them, because we had given some account of this celebrated Mathematician and Divine in a former Number of this work. Ojwald and Lilly: a Poem, has not sufficient merit to atone for its extreme length.
a The Lines on Betly Hodd are too odd to please any one but the Lady. The Two Fables are under consideration. L. R's Impromptu has neither ; hime nor reason. 7. Harcourt's Traveller is far from being either interesting or entertaining.
The Tale of ibe Man of the People is a very indifterent imitation of the Author of Crazy Tales.
The Reflections on the indelicate Conduct of a certain Duchess are better adapted to a News-Paper than a Magazine.
