THE HESPERIAN;

A MONTHLY

MISCELLANY OF GENERAL LITERATURE,

ORIGINAL AND SELECT.

EDITED BY WILLIAM D. , GALLAGHER,

" To gather from still living witnesses, and preserve for the future annalist, the important records of the
teeming and romantic Past: to seize while yet warm and glowing, and inscribe upon the page which shall be
sought hereafter, the bright visions of song, and the fair images of story, which gild the gloom and lighten the
sorrows of the ever-fleeting PRESENT: to search all history with a steady eye, sound all philosophy with a
careful hand, question all experience with a fearless tongue, and thence draw lessons to fit us for, and light to
guide us through, the shadowed but unknown FUTURE.
