from Mr. Gurney, the inventor of this steam carriage, declaring that bis carriage bas repeatedly run successfully during the last two years, but that be avoided public roads till he had by expe.. ricnce acquired confidence in the sticcess of his invention. He says that the carriage moved up the hill at tbe rate of four or five miles an bour, and not of thirteen, as stated: that, when they reached the top of the bill, they were obeered by a number of persons, and thus encouraged to push on at the rate of fifteen miles an hour, the usual rate being from eight to ten : that on coming down the bill be reduced the pace to four miles an hour, but that it increased in speed in consequence of his servant hariog neglected to lock the wheel: as soon as he perceived this, he instantly attempted to back the engines, when one of the hind wheels came off, not from the weight of the machinery, but from being badly made. That the carriage was not over heavy, appears from the fact, that oue borse drew it back to the factory.

CAUTION.--The following statement may give a useful hint to some good-natured servants, who allow travelling dealers, withwhose characters they are unacquainted, to come into the house. A young man, in the dress of a sailor, went into the house of Mr. Robertson, No. 1, Brunswick-place, Devonshire-hill, Hampstead, about 11 o'clock yesterday morning, under pretence of selling some pencils. Ho however contrived, during the tem. porary absence of the servant girl, to possess himself of the following articles :-- 11 table-spoons, 1 gravy ditto, 2 ladles, 3. dessert spoons, and 4 forks, all silver;, with which be made off. Times.

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. Some of our Correspondents wish to be informed why we do not insert their leiters. We vannot explain our reasons. We are much obliged by the communications wbich are sent to us, and we take such as we think suits our purpose. Sometimes we have many articles on nearly the same subjects, and if we were to insert them all, we sbould interfere with that variety of matter wbich we wish our pages to contain. To some artioles which we do not insert, we have no ohjeotion to make,-but we may not particularly stand in need of them. Others contain useful matter, but may not be suitable for publication,-and, if we alter the style much, we perhaps destroy the original charaeter of the piece,-and moreover, in the opinion of the writer, make it worse.

We do not recollect that the prayer to which. " A Constant Reader » refers was ever inserted in our «Visitor"_We have received the communications of C. S.; M. I. E.; A Friend to Youth ; A Lancashire Curate.—Also an Essay on Happiness ; a Tract on Confirmation ; a Bath Paper; and The Young Servant's Friendly. Instructor.
