extract from the critical review, april 1791, p. 468.
" It may be a tale of truth, for it is not unnatural, and
it is a. talc of real diftrefs—Charlo te, by the aatifice of a
eacher, recommended to a school, from humanity ra-
Wr than a coiivi<£i»ii of her integrity, or the regularity,
jf her former conduit, is enticed from her governess, and
accompanies a young officer to America—the marriage
ceremony, if not forgotten, is postponed, and Charlotte
dies a martyr to the inconltancy of her lover and treach
try <.i his friend.
The situations arc artless and aflfeiting—the description ,
natural and pathcrie ;we should feel for Charlotte if fueh a
person ever exiftcd, who for one error,. perhaps
deserved so severe a punifhinent. If it is a fid ion, poetic
juilice is not, v e think, properly distributed."

We are informed that the gentleman who drew, the
15,000 dollar prize, in the Canal Lottery, was the
proprietor of only a Angle Ticket—This instance of
good fortune, lhews that it is well to be ;n Fortune's

tizen. t
The Scheme of the Canal Lottery is certainly on«
of the bell whkh has appeared—for, independent ;<
the ufeful objefls to which its proceeds are to be ap»
plied, the foheme is so calculated as to continually en
hance the value of the Tickets remaining in the wheel;
