NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS.

Although we have this week again enlarged NOTES AND QUERIES from 16 to 24 pages, in fulfilment of our promise to do so when the number and extent of our communications called for it, we have been compelled to omit many Notes, Queries, and Replies of great interest.

Our attention has been called by more than one of our earliest contributors to the inconvenience of the single initial, which they had originally adopted, being assumed by subsequent correspondents, who probably had no idea that the A., B., or C., by which they thought to distinguish their communications, was already in use.  Will our friends avoid this in future by prefixing another letter or two to their favourite A., B., or C.

Errata..—­No. 25. p. 398. col. 2. line 44., for “L.D.” read “L.R.”; No 26. p. 416. col. 2. line 52., for “Beattie” read “Bentley”; and the Latin Epigram, p. 422., should commence “Longe” instead of “Longi,” and be subscribed “T.D.” instead of “W. (1).”
