We have received a letter from Mr. Edmeston, explaining the inadvertent piracy into which he discovers that he has been betrayed. The verses referred to at page 461 of our last Number, were inserted in a work called The Christian Monitor, with his name affixed to them. "I certainly did not remember to have written them," says Mr. E.; "but, as this has been the case with others which I undoubtedly have written, I applied to the Compiler to know where he found them." The disingenuous answer of the Editor, led Mr. Edmeston to suppose that they had been copied with his signature from the Christian Instructor, to which publication he is an occasional contributor. We do not blame Mr. Edmeston, knowing the possibility of forgetting what we have ourselves written; but the dishonest license taken by these scrap-hunters and selection-makers, of which this is no solitary instance, is an intolerable nuisance. Not content with stealing literary property, they must needs alter the shape, and destroy or change the mark.
