Monthly Magazines have opened a way for every kind of inquiry and information.
The intelligence and discussion contained in them are very extensive and various;
and they have been the means of diffusing a general habit of reading through the
nation, which, in a certain degree hath enlarged the public understanding. HERE,
too, are preserved a multitude of useful hints, observations, and facts, which other-
wise might never have appeared.-Dr Kippis.

A YEAR has elapsed since we commenced publishing the Atheneum; and we are pleased to find that our endeavours to make it interesting have been successful. The improvement in the English Magazines, and their increase, now justify us in promising a better selection than has before been given. The sources from which we draw our supplies are inexhaustible: the encouragement given to periodical works in England, is such as to enable the proprietors to procure the assistance of their ablest writers and while they continue to increase in value, we shall strive to add new interest to our work, by a judicious selection of the best articles they contain. The Atheneum has certainly an advantage, in this country, over the periodicals of England, in one respect; that of avoiding many localities, and inserting those articles which refer to our own country, or which may be useful to our readers: and, being published at such short intervals, it gives an opportunity of transmitting the earliest information of improvements in the arts and sciences, and also of first publishing interesting tales, notices of new works, and, in fact, of first extracting all the best articles which appear in the English Journals. We have made arrangements for the more regular reception of English works, and have also written for some new ones, which, in addition to those we already receive, will enable us to give the Atheneum a character which we trust will induce our present subscribers to continue their patronage, and others to become subscribers.

The Atheneum is published regularly on the first and fifteenth of every month, each No. containing 40 pages, large octavo, at the extremely low price of five dollars per annum, or 24 numbers, forming two volumes a year of nearly 500 pages each. The volumes commeuce in April and October of each year.
