quiry, and leading, if properly treated, to the most useful and satisfactory results. The art of criticism, we consider to be one of high rank and rare excellence; and it is with pleasure that we see more than one person among our present communicants, gifted with it, and using it in such a manner as to impart fresh lustre to its value, and to please while they instruct. We thank them for the favours they have already conferred; and we hope to receive additional freights of their learned stores, which have been formed by them in retirement, and which we may have the satisfaction of imparting to the world. Thus we trust that the successive numbers of our Magazine will never be wanting in the supply of matter at once agreeable and profound, and that we may say of them in the language of the poet,

Primo avulso, non deficit alter
Aureus, et simili frondescit virga metallo.”

London, Dec. 25, 1841.
