NOTICE.

The readers of the REFLECTOR-are informed, that the next Num-
ber will take up the three months that have been suffered to elapse
during the publication, so as to make a half-yearly instead of a
quarterly Retrospect, and enable the year to conclude with the se.
cond. Volume, or four even Numbers, instead of dragging an oda
one after it in consequence of the appearance of the first Number
last Winter. With the commencement of 1812, the REFLECTOR
(in justice to it's title) will put on more staid and quarterly ha-
bits; and it is trusted, that with the promises of fresh and vae :
luable Correspondence with which the Proprietors have been
gratified, their Magazine, like other wild beginners, will become
better in every respect, as it acquires regularity. .

The present Number is short of its usual portion of matter;
but this deficiency will be made up in the next Publication,
