TO OUR READERS.

In consequence of the number and size of the articles in the first part of the present number, and the necessity of furnishing our readers with the usual amount of new cases, we have been obliged to omit entirely some of the other departments of our journal. We hope, however, that the value of what we have given will compensate for its want of variety.
