SMILES OF FORTUNE. VARIOUS rumors have circulated, respecting the owners of the fortuDate tickets, against the numbers of which the highest prizes were drawn in the Philanthropic Lottery ; and as the truth is not yet generally known, which has occasioned several erroneous surmises, the following may be depended on as facts : The highest prize, sooo dollars, was drawn by Mrs. ROBINSON, of this town; a widow, and the mother of feven children, whom, by industry and economy, she has educated in fach a manner, as so render them reputable and useful members of society. The money was paid, a few days after the drawing of the lottery, into the hands of Capt. Connor, (of the tign of the bell) at whose house Mrs. R. relided. The prize of 3000 dollars was drawn by a quartered number, two parts of which belonged to two mechanics of this town; one fourth was owned by a young Lady, and the other fourth by a young Lad, both of the country, but of different places. The prize of rooo dollars was drawn by a young gentleman of the law, belonging to Charlestown, near Boston. This, how. ever, is not to him the first instance of the favor of fortune.

TO CORRESPONDENTS. OUR friend, and the friend of science, in the vicinity of Newburyport, has our thanks for his first communication; we anticipate further favors.

The fair autħorets of “ A Fragment" has very prettily imitated the unrivalled author of the “ Sentimental Journey." Any future production of the same hand will be highly acceptable.

We regret the omiffion of “The Gentleman at Large,” though his excuse is reasonable. The assurance that his pen is still at the service of the Phenix, is not less pieas ing to us, than it will undoubtedly be to our fair patronesses.

* Marcus” will need much information before he can with propriety aflume “ The Reformer.”

The object that awakened Strephon's fancy in the Mall, cannot be more unchafte than his production is unpoetical.

Our anticipated Correspondent of Vermont has approved himself no less steril than his neighboring cliffs.

An elegant plate will embellish the next number.
