At the close of the Fifty-second volume, a series of almost unparalleied extent in the hinds of 'one Editor and Proprietor, thanks are sincerely tendered for the liberal and unabated patronage with which this Miscellany continues to be honoured. If a light-minded few hare been sedv.ccd by the blandishments, the puffs, and the meretricious pretensions of worthy and unworthy competitors, the solid and consistent part of the nation have compared, and hare discriminated; and we have year by year had to boast of accessions to the number of our correspondents and subscribers. Our Fifty-third volume will be commenced on the first of February, and instead of making promises, we appeal with confidence from the evidence of the past, to the future.

To our obliging correspondents we have much apology to make for delay, but as wc always prefer the useful to the speculative, and matters of fact and practice to wiredrawn essays and fine-spun meditations, the latter unavoidably accumulate for months, and often for years. For the conveyance and deposit of Heavy Goods of this nature, there, however, exist other Literary Caravans- and Receptacles in which we ojten see the refuse of our drawers displayed with whimsical ostentation; and we repeat, for the hundredth time, that few communications are acceptable to tkis Miscellany besides those which have some useful end in view, which record some interesting fact, or, which in some manner " come home to men's business and bosoms."

The Supplementary Number will appear on the 31»f, filled, as usual, with, the essence of the best books of the half year, with Indexes, 4"C.
