teaches him to despise and violate the courteous civilities of Life, and substitutes asperity for kindness, and selfishness for charity. This fortunately has not taken place among ourselves; but it has, in no common degree, among our Neighbours. In this respect, example will do much, and perseverance more. Sorry indeed should we be, to see the manly and dignified demeanour of Englishmen exchanged for grimace, affectation, and coxcombry; but still more painful would it be, to see it marked by rudeness, and characterised by ferocity. The great preventive of these and similar evils, is the peaceful cultivation of Science. Here we feel ourselves in our own element; and let us earnestly hope, that we shall not again be called upon to discuss other subjects, than those which Cicero calls exercitationes ingenii et curricula mentis. We shall not again, we seriously flatter ourselves, have to lament in our Prefatory Addresses, rerum publicarum eversiones, Patriæ proditiones, aut cum hostibus clandestina colloquia." Far different scenes and occupations present themselves ; here we shall continue to exercise our best talents and greatest diligence, secure, as for the greatest part of a Century we have been, of the aid of the wise, the good, and the ingenious.

At this point, we might perhaps without impropriety, close our communication for the present, with our Readers : but it would have the appearance of cold insensibility and indifference, not to felicitate them on the accomplishment of our common hopes and wishes, and without participating with them, in the exultation arising from the idea, that Babylon, the mighty Babylon, is fallen! that Society is relieved from the hurden of the greatest Pest that ever molested its tranquillity, or contavinated the sources of its safety; of the fall of one, of whom most truly may it be said

Nec nostræ potuere preces inflectere durum,
Nec Divum portenta animum, quin arctius ignem

Spumabat ferus ore vomens, bellumque ciebat. Finally, let us return, as we are bounden in gratitude to do, our hearty thanks for the generous and uninterrupted Patronage which has encouraged and rewarded our labours. We have found it salutary to ourselves, useful to others, and beneficial to the general cause, in which we are engaged, to pursue one undeviating path, which no prem judice or partiality of any kind, has ever induced us to forsake.

Tros Tyriusque nobis nullo discrimine agetur. Criticism may sometimes inflict a wound where none was intended, Vanity may occasionally imagine that its claims are neglected, Curiosity may by chance inquire for that, which cannot be found, and Impatience may complain, that its unreasonable expectations are not anticipated : but we will pledge ourselves, that there never shall exist any just. imputation on our vigilance, our honour, or our justice.
