THE CONTRIBUTION for the Relief of an Unfortunate Lady, having now arisen, from the gre.,t benevolence and generosity of a considerable number of most respectable donors, to a sum sufficient, as it is hoped, for her immediate liberation, with perhaps a small residue towards her present support; the gentlemen appointed to diredt the application of the said sum, are now taking the necessary measures for carrying into effect, as speedily as possible, th-humane object in view. The persons by whom the business of the contribution was carried on, in advertising, &c. having called in from the Ba hers the general account of donations, find -.vith concern, that -' ere was a mistake in the sum mentioned in one of the latter advertisements; arising from an erroneous ad ition of one of the lists twice over : but there will shortly be depohte--'. at the bank of Sir Herbert Mackworth, Bart.

FREDERICK LORD NORTH, Chancellor of the University of Oxford, AN JiSSAY, intended to establish a Standard for an Universal System of STENOGRAPHY, SHORT HAND WRITING ; ~pon such simple and approved principles as have never be-.;re been offered to the Public; whereby a person in a feia I'.ys may instruct himself to wite Short Hand correclly, and y a little praffice cannot fail taking down any discourse delivered in public. By SAMUEL TAYLOR, Many years Professor, and Teacher of the Science at Oxford, and the Universities of Scotland and Ireland. The usefulness of Shorthand Writing, to every per-so-n in any genteel profession, or employment of life, is universally admitted-the inability to praftice it, as generally regretted. On this account, it has been recommended by all Universities, that the study of Stenography, or Shut-hand Writing, should be made a part of the early Education of youth in general. The knowledge of it may be easily acquired, and the praflice rendered familiar, by early habits, from the recommendations of more than three hundred persons of consequence, who praftice and approve the above method. Dr. Beattie's is now selected as an authority not to be disputed. N. B. Good encouragement will be given to Masters of Academies, on introducing this system into their plans of education. Marischsl College, 24th Feb. ''� Of all the systems of she-rt-hand'that I have seen, and I /vr?V I'-Aed into several, Mr. Taylor's appears, to me to be in-" t-.mpizrab'.y the best.   The art seems to be hardly susceptible of " further improvement,   His address as a teacher of it, is very 'great i -deed; and Tn my opinion, places him at the heed of his " profession. (Signed) J.
