To the Editor of the Lurgan, Portadown, and Banbridge Advertiser. SIR--I have been much pleased, and I would add, profited, by the perusal of the articles lately published in your paper on the Bee. It must be a source of great gratification to you to see that one of the objects intended by your publication, has been attained, namely, exciting in the minds of the people, and especially of the working classes, a spirit of enquiry, and a desire not only to attain, but also to impart knowledge. As the study of Natural History is one the most likely to engage and attract the attention of the young, and the middle classes, I have thrown together a few remarks on the advantages to be obtained from its study, and trust they may to a certain degree be of use, in urging others to not only read and study for themselves, but also from time to time communicate their stores of knowledge to others. I remain, sir, your obedt. servt. M.J. MacCORMACK, M.D. Portadown, June 29, 1849.
