LONDON MARKETS

AND PRICE CURRENT.

CORN EXCHANGE, DECEMBER, 1821. We had a tolerable supply of Wheat from Essex, Kent, and Suffolk, this morning. Fine samples sold freely at last Monday's prices-middling and inferior quality, a heavy sale.-Malting Barley, from 1s. to 25. per quarter cheaper since this day week, but the inferior could not be disposed of.—Beans, both old and New, also Boiling and Grey Peas, were each dull in sale, and rather cheaper.-The Oat trade was dull, with little variation in their prices.-In Rapeseed and Linseed very little doing. -Clover-seed prices continue nominally the same.

We beg to offer to our Noble Correspondent at Blackheath, our best thanks for his courtesy; at the same time we sincerely regret the circumstances he mentions.

Our Cambridge and Oxford friends will see the value we set on their favours, by the use we have made of them. Some communications arrived too late for our present Number: we shall avail ourselves of them in our next. Among these is a most able review of “ Happiness, a tale for the Grave and Gay,” for which we are peculiarly obliged. The writer's opinion of this excellent work agrees exactly with our own.

We have received three letters from Dublin, and one from Edinburgh, complaining of not being able to procure us in those cities. We assure our friends that this circumstance shall not occur again.

Dan Doggrel is the very prince of poets; he is exactly after our own heart. We anxiously expect the fulfilment of his promise.

Jonas Touchwood is too dry for us.
A. is sincerely thanked. We hope to liear from him this month.

We wish Nay would send us a prose article. We are sure be has talents, but poetry is not his forte.

To our friend R. at Brighton, we offer our warmest acknowledgments for his kindness. We entreat him to believe that we entertain a just sense of the favours he has conferred upon us.

We have many other friends at Brighton, to whom our thanks are due: we beg that they will accept them, and believe us truly grateful.

We assore 9. that annunciations of all sorts will be thankfully received : we only reserve to ourselves the privilege of returning those articles which we may deem unfit for the pages of our Magazine. Were all our correspondents like D. this would be an easy task.

We thank G. A. “ The Recluse” mode of life she has adopted, has, we regret to say, given too sombre a tinge to her writings.

We confess Proteus is too much for us ;, we cannot understand him.

We have received several highly flattering letters, complimenting us more particularly on the style in which our University and Ecclesiastical Intelligence is given. We feel a pride in the conviction that this praise is not altogether undeserved. The plan we have adopted is entirely original: our knowledge is drawn from the most authentic sources: and there is not a periodical work in existence from whence this valuable information can be derived, EXCEPT OUR

OWN.

Several of 'our best friends, whose communications we have inserted we purposely refrain from noticing here : we conceive that we have given the strongest proof in our power of the estimation in which we hold them. We now bid farewell, for the present, to our numerous and kind friends : wishing

“ To all and each a fair good night,
“And pleasing dreams, and slumbers light.”

HOME MANUFACTURE.

Of all the arts that are practised in this artful world, the art of book-making is, and ought to be, the most encouraged. No task is more amusing---none so profitable yet none so easy of practice provided always, that the wright sets about his business in a workman-like manner, selects his materials skilfully, and puts them together tastefully-secundum artem, as Richard Gossip says.

Seated in a well-stocked library, (Geoffrey Crayon recommends that of the British Museum,) or with “ the run" of a good circulating one, “ THE TOURIST” may perform the circuit of the universe with as much ease as if mounted on the back of the celebrated Pegasus of Pacolet. Having made his observations, he can send forth to the world the journal of his voyage, and may describe accurately the latitude, longitude, climate, extent, population, religion, manners, customs, soil, produce, arts, manufactures, and commerce, of every nation on the face of the globe.

The Miner may dive into the bowels of the harmless or harmful earth-explore, and afterwards expose its hidden treasures, without a necessity for Sir Humphry Davy's patent lamp to light him on his way, or as a preservative against that species of Hibernicism, fire-damp.

The RHYTAMIST (as the correct phrase is) may, by culling here and there a flower, together with a leaf or two of his own, with very little exertion, compose a beautiful poetic bouquet, comprising an ode, a satire, an elegy, a sonnet and an epic; all of which he will find “ Pat to his purpose," as HAZLITT said when speaking of an Irish ball-player*.

THE MILITARY JOURNALIST, or Chronicler, may, as an eye
