A TYRO in Italian Literature, I would request some of your Correspondents to inform me whether the only true Version of Orlando Furioso, cant. 10 st. 84. *Natura il fece, e poi ruppe la stampa, be not, He formed Nature, and then broke the mould. It is the nominative case, in the accusative forming Lui or poeticè Lo. In that case ought not the line plainly and clearly to have stood thus, Natura lo fece, &c.? If not, I would beg to be informed by what grammatical rule or idiom of the language the Il can be justified.

What chimerical Beast does Frezier mean to designate in his "Voyage au Mer du Sud," page 182, 4to, by the word Tarasque? To what Superstition does he allude? What are this Beast's chimérical properties?

Paris, 1745, 8vo.-I would particularly ask, Are the Pecuri the same as the Pa cay mentioned by Frezier† as above, p. 155, plate 24.-the Yngo Peruviana of Pison and Father Plumier, called by the French Pois surin ?-I once conjectured, and was fond of the conjecture, that this word was a corruption of the Biccurim of the Talmudists; and that the Pichurim Bohn of Link was no other than Faba Precoces. Their being used as a condiment destroyed that opinion, which subsided into Yngo Peruviana as above.

In several modern French Voyages, (as Perouse, Labillardiere, and Marchand) we find two equal distances of the Sun and Moon, or of the Moon from a given Star, mentioned as a datum to ascertain the true Longitude of the Place of Observation. This carries the ap pearance of a mistake or misrepresentation. If true, by what formula from these data is the Longitude ascertained ? It is apprehended that on every part of the surface of the Globe the distance of

M. Marion, in " Voyage au Mer du Sud," edit. 8vo. Paris, 1703, two or three times uses the term Poules mauves, as on page 9th. I have not been able to find them in Bomare Dict. Nat.

Frezier's Voyage, after the lapse of near a century, is still a precious morsel for a man of science. It was written in 1716 with a philosophie spirit, not often equalled, never surpassed.
