JANUARY, 1823.

INTRODUCTORY ADDRESS AND PROSPECTUS.

THE Editors of the " COLLECTIONS IN HISTORY, BIOGRAPhy,” &c. one volune of which has now been completedunwilling to discontinue their labors while their mass of valuable materials is undiminished--have resolved to enlarge the plan of their publication, in the hope, that by presenting to the public a greater variety of matter, they may receive a more extended patronage. They are fully aware that no literary journal can so flourish in this cold northern region, as to drop its matured fruit into the hands of those who plant and water it. Still it is to be hoped the pride of our citizens will encourage attempts, however humble, to preserve the memorials of the past, now too rapidly perishing; and to cultivate a laste for literary reading and speculation-100 much neglected!

It is useless, at this period of time, to point out the intimate relation between knowledge and happiness. Many nations, in their advance to glory and renown, have realized the truth of the maxim, that “Knowledge is power.". And the people of all countries will agree that it sustains the fabric of their government-fits them to enjoy, or nerves them to defend it cheers where it visits the remotest and darkest corners of the earth--and of that little kingdom, the human heart. Few countries, perhaps none, enjoy ihe advantages of the United Slales; there is none,where knowledge is so easily and cheaply diffused--where that guardian of the people's rights, the PRESS, has such free and deserved influence. Though still a youth, our country can boast of many improvements in the arts and economy of life. But in thc great fields of science and literature, our advance has been slow and timid; we are too fearful of the watch-dogs of London and Edinburghand dread their howlings even from beyond the great waters
