NOTES TO CORRESPONDENTS.
AVING occasion lately to refer to a chronological epitome, I accidentally cast my eyes on the naine of Julius Cæsar; and it was not without some emotion, that I read the following account of so extraordinary a character :
Julius Cæsar, Emperor of Rome, born July 10, 100, invaded Britain, landing at Deal, August 26th, 55, killed in the Senate-house, March 15, 44, A. C. after having fought fifty battles, slain above 1,192,000 men, and taken by assault 1000 towns.
Whether the compiler of this work has thus briefly given this list of destruction, without mentioning its causes, wins in Vol. II.
