ACKNOWLEDGMENTS TO CORRESPONDENTS.

OUR School-Por, who feels grieved at the " unnatural diftinations of. Šis ciety, is advised not to meddle with politics; as it is clearly deducible from his communication, that he is totally unacquainted with the political fituation of our country, and therefore cannot have a proper conception of the bad effe&ts, which the adoption of his puerile sentiments and opinions, are calculated to produce; and besides, it is a subject which ought only to occupy the attention of men of talents, experience, virtue, and integrity: among whom our youth cannot with propriety be ranked.

The Lady who writes under the fignature of the Fair t'irginian," pofíeffes much literary merit-Her first number Thall appear immediately after she furnishes us with her second.

The “ Querismight lead fome to believe that he is competent to the folution of his own queitions : and to make all believe so, appears to be his principal object :-he is willing “to taste the nut, without the trouble of cracking the foell."

A continuance of Amanda's poetic favours will be gratefully received and duly acknowledged.

Diogenes communication on the present state of politics cannot be admitted; his gall and acrimony have originated in the bitterness of his own soul. The evils against which he so loudly clamours may require a remedy, but not such a one as he prescribes.

The WIT, who furnished us with a fet of original and chafe anecdotes, is ada vised to reserve them for a supplement of a new edition of the Earl of Rochester's works.

TO PATRON S.

FROM the very liberal and flattering patronage the Pbenix has received, and which is rapidly increating, we can confidently promise our patrons a continual

. addition to its merit. Till now, we could not, with certainty, declare the success of a thing, whose predecessors have prematurely expired. Great expenses ard. daily accruing to procure from all parts of America and England, the most chalte, interesting and instructive matter proper for a work of this kind. Our correspondence with geniuses of the first consideration, who promise a periodical contipuance of their

favours, will furnish a rich repast to the lovers of literature, sentiment and humour.

A Gentleman of the highest respectability as a writer, residing in London, will give us a regular monthly collection, of the molt important European incidents, We think we may, by the confluence of these our extended refources, and which shall still be extended with the growth of our proficiency and success, anticipate the approbation and assistance of a nuanerous and respectable proportion of literary Patrons in the United States.
