The tranflator of Des Touchés Difpateur will give us credit till next month, as our matter in this, is entirely temporary.

The letter we received from an ingenious correfpondent is replete with ufeful intimations, and the critique is full of a umen; but there feems to be a mistake in charging us with translations into French, as we infert nothing of that kind knowingly and can venture to say, that the French we have published is front the most claffical French authors.

It is with fome uneafinefs, that we are to declare it was not in our power, this month, to convey to our readers, an unhappy cafe, tranfmitted by our old friend, Bob Short.
