cannot, in truth and justice, denominate them by any other terms; and as to the latter, being satisfied that the charge of deception and falsehood in the pretended adherence to the Archbishop's Translation, is founded in fact, I hold myself bound to make it good; and shall for this purpose, more particularly bring before the reader's view the language and the conduct of the Editors in reference to this subject.


A new edition of the Political Works of Thomas Paine is offered to the Public by R. Carlile. This edition is got up in a very superior manner to any thing of the kind that has hitherto appeared in England. It contains many pieces that were never before published in this country, and the whole is exempt from any of Mr. Paine's Theological or Deistical Writings, which for the present may be better confined to a separate volume. This edition of the Political Works comprises two thick volumes, each containing about 600 pages, on a fine paper cold-pressed. A new and well executed portrait has been obtained solely for this edition, and a Memoir of the Author is prefixed. To the admirers of Mr. Paine's Political Writings, this edition will be found a valuable collection, such as they have never seen before. The peculiar situation of the Publisher, and the determined attempt of the Government to pursue Mrs. Carlile to a prison, has induced him to put the price of Two Pounds on this edition, and he pledges himself that it will be found better worth that price than the former, edition was worth One. To the labouring classes who cannot afford a direct purchase, it is recommended that they form clubs similar to the various clubs for wearing apparel, &c., and thus obtain a copy. One occasion of so high a price is, that the Publisher has been at a great expence in getting the additional articles, the portrait, &c. and in having been under the necessity, from his situation, of preparing the whole edition by an advance of ready money, of which he stands in need of a speedy return.

The following is a List of all the Pieces of Mr. Paine's writing, that have been published by R. CARLILE, should any Individual be able to add to the Collection, any Article will be thankfully received, or any Agreement entered into, if required.

The LIFE OF THOMAS PAINE; written purposely to bind with his Writings. By RICHARD CARLILE. Price 6d.


"Unless either philosophers bear rule in states, or those who are called kings and potentates learn to philosophize justly and properly, and thus both civil power and philosophy are united in the same person, it appears to me that there can be no cessation to calamities, either to states or to the whole human race." So said Plato-and so says common sense; but fools and knaves, in our day, denounce philosophers as a disgrace to the people over whom they preside!
