AND THE LITERARY WORLD,
It is to be lamented, that many Pamphlets of infinite merit are now become so scarce as hardly to have any existence but in the fond recollection and regrets of those readers, to whom they once afforded conviction and delight. Such Pamphlets it is intended, if possible, to recover; and, when the pressure of new matter will permit, to introduce them, as aptly as we can, into our numbers. The permission, therefore, of their authors to reprint them, and an early intimation of their sentiments, respecting the proposed plan, will be esteemed an important favor ; since thus, proper care may be had, with respect to the regularity of dates and every other circumstance, to give that clear series and continuation of subjects which will constitute the leading feature of this publication.

The MS. is to be delivered gratuitously to the Editor, and the proofs may, if required, be revised by the Author ; but as the latter will be at no expense whatever in Printing or Publishing, it is earnestly solicited that the Copy be deli, vered as correct as possible.

Still we bid defiance to the thunder that rolls at a distance, and fondly hope to survive the wreck of surrounding nations, and to renovate them by the benevolent diffusion of religion and happiness. The Christian patriot, who sees a merciful God riding in the whirlwind, and directing the storm, anticipates the dawn of light from the midst of darkness, and the purification of the world from the hurricanes that are hurling to the ground the proudest monuments of Time.
