REVOCATION OF THE EDICT OF NANTES.- We cannot better rectify the error, natural error we had almost said, into which MR. MACRAY has fallen, than by printing entire the following communication :

“ British Museum, “Sir,

Jan. 17, 1854.
“ An extremely clever and interesting review of Pineton
de Chambrun's History of the Persecutions of the Protestants by
the French King in the Principality of Orange appeared in the
Journal des Déba of the 30th Nov. last. This article is dated
from the British Museum (in the reading-room of which esta-
blishment it may very probably have been written), and signed
William Jones. As I am the only person in the British Museum
bearing the surname of Jones, the article has been attributed to
me, in very courteous terms, by a correspondent of the "N. &
Q.” As I cannot claim the merit of being the writer, I beg to
place this correction of MR. MACRAY's very natural mistake in
your hands, to be used in such manner as you may think proper.

I have the honour to be, Sir,
“ Your very obedient servant,

* J. WINTER JONES."
F. G. S. (Colchester). We have forwarded to Dr. DIAMOND
your request, and as soon as light and leisurepermit, you shall
receive some copies of the portrait.

A PHOTOGRAPHIC CORRESPONDENT, DURHAM. - We have been so unfortunate as to lose a letter asking questions respecting the enlargement of photographs, &c., for which we apolégise, but believe a full answer will be found in the last number of the Photographic Journal.

“ NOTES AND QUERIES,” Vols. i, to viii., price Four Guineas. -Copies are being made up and may be hud by order.

“ NOTES AND QUERIES " is published at noon on Friday, so that the Country Booksellers may receive Copies in that night's parcels and deliver them to their Subscribers on the Saturday.

separately, at 78. 6d. per volume. These plain
and short discourses have been found to be pe-
culiarly suited for reading aloud in families
and to the sick, on account of their simple and
affectionate style, and the interesting and prac-
tical manner in which religious truths are in-
culcated. The publisher desires to point out
their usefulness in these respects, having reason
to believe that their circulation has hitherto
been chiefly among the clergy, and that they
are still comparatively little known to the
laity.

“One of the most valuable and interesting pamphlets we ever read." - Morning Herald.

“This publication, which promises to be the commencement of a larger work, will well repay serious perusal." - Ir. Eccl. Journ.

A small pamphlet in which he throws a startling, ight on the practices of modern Mesmerism."

Nottingham Journal. “Dr. Maitland, we consider, has here brought Mesmerism to the touchstone of truth,' to the test of the stand rd of right or wrong. We thank him for this first instalment of his inquiry, and hope that he will not long delay, the remaining portions." - London Medical Gazette.

" The Enquiries are extremely curious, we should in deed say important. That relating to the Witch of Endor is one of the most successful we ever read. We cannot enter into particulars in this brief notice ; but we would strongly recomn end the pamphlet even to those who care nothing about Mesmerism, or angry (for it has come to this at last) with the subject." - Dublin Evening Post.

“ We recomme d its general perusal as being really an endeavour, by one whose position gives him the best facilities, to ascertain the genuine character of Mesmerism, which is so much disputed." - Woolmer's Exeter Gazette.

“ Dr. Maitland has bestowed a vast deal of attention on the subject for many years past, and the present pamphlet is in part the result of his thoughts and inquiries. There is a good deal in it which we should have been glad to quote .... but we content ourselves with referring our readers to the pamphlet itself.”. Brit. Mag.
