PRE FACE.

*HE utility of periodical publications, their general power of enterer

tainment, the knowledge which has been diffused through every part of the known world by means of them, and the improvement in arts, sciences, literature, and civilization, which may be ascribed to them, are so voiversally kaown and felt, that it would be a waste of time to attempt to prove what no one will deny, and which requires only the flightest obser. vation to perceive. In spite of the splenetic ineers of fastidious pride, in {pite of the interested cavils of dulness and ignorance, what is known to be beneficial will continue to be approved; what is found to convey knowledge and amusement will still be sought after and applauded, it would be no vain boasting to assert, that in the various walks of science and literature more knowledge has been conveyed to the public by this species of publication, than through any other channel whatever. Much of the improvements of the present cimes may, without arrogance, be claimed by tbe infuence of Literary Journals, and the facility with which they are difseminated. At one period or other of life, who can say they have not received improvement, amusement, or rational pleasure, by means of these monthly publications?

When the names of the most eminent of the present day pass in review before us, which of them can be pointed out whose owner has not contribated his affiftance at some period to a periodicat publication ? Here the modest and unassuming first try their powers: here the diffident may acquire confidence; the inquilitive information; the doubtful satisfaction; and the benevolent the opportunity of communicating happiness. Of the Eminent who have already paled away (and many of shem highly deserving), the memorials of not a few will be preserved in no other repository,

Amidft the moltiplicity of pablications of this species, it cannot be denied bet ghat some are perverted to improper purposes, and some executed witha so little judgment, that no advantage to the public is derived from them. These, however, are too short-lived to deserve particular notice. The contempe which they experience fortunately configns them to oblivion.

After fix years experience, the EDITORS of THE EUROPEAN MAGAZINE would be wanting to themselves were they to doubt whether the manner in which they have conducted their work had been ac. ceptable to the public. A continued increase in their sale, and their free quent orders from abroad, fufficiently convince them that their labours have not been fruitless or in vain. Perseverance in the same line of conduct, they will consider as the best return they can make for the uncommon favour they have experienced. The fame attention will be employed for the time to come, and they doubt not with equal success.

B2

The The PLATEs which have ornamented this work are fuch, as tho PROPRIETORS have repeatedly received the warmet approbation of from various quarters. The same artists continue to be employed, and many portraits and subjects are at this moment executing to adorn the ensuing volumes. To folicif a comparison with other works of this nature is unne. cessary. It may be confidently afferted, that in this particular no Monthly Publication can stand in any kind of competition with the present.

For the Biographical department they have been favoured with such authentic materials as cannot fail to ensure the approbation of the world, Corre&tness is the principal merit to be lookcd for in articles of this kind ; and in this particular their materials will hereafter confiderably aflift the Hiltorian and Biographer. The use which is frequently made of them by very respectable publications is sufficient praise, In recording the lives of many eminent persons, the most conliderable aid will be derived from the present work.

After so long an acquaintance with the public, the EDITORS prefume they may take the liberty of abridging the ceremonial employed on such occafions as the present. They therefore will conclude by observing, thaç as they do not apprehend being neglected so long as their attention is alive to the performance of their engagements, so they will desire no encouragement when they shall in any degree relax their alliduity in furnishing such an entertaįmment as will be useful and amusng to all ranks and classes of readers,

ANSWERS IO. CORRESPONDENTS,

The impofition attempted to be pra&tifed upon us by E. C. is received with the contempt it defena. The Verfes pretended to be written in the Chanced of Bottisford Church are stolen from the Poetical Calendar, Vol. II. p. 49.

R.'s favour in our next,
We fhall be glad to hear from Gaps. Fidge when his Muse is not dire&ted to politics.
We are forry that we omitted to mention sooner that the Tale on Cropping qarnot be inferted.
Other Carrospoodents hall be byticed in our next.
