Is bringing our Fourth Volume to a close, we heartily thank all our Subscribers for their steady and unwearied support. The letters of encouragement and of commendation which we have received during the past sis months, have been more numerous and more gratifying than ever. We have endeavoured to show our sense of these favours, bs laburing more carnestis to impart slid and useful instruction in various important branches of learning; we hare, in fact, considered that we were entrusted by our readers with the responsible task of their education, and we are aimed at fu.fi.ing our daties to their satisfaction. We have given a concise and popular summary of the leading fac:s in several branches of Natural Philosophy, as may be seen by consulting the Index; but many highly useful and interesting departments are soon to forow in their order; these are Calorie and Optics, or the doctrines of Heat and Light, iccading some of their most interesting apprications, as the Steam Engine, the Telescope and Microscope, laguerreotype and Photography: Magnetism and Electricity, including the nature of the Telegraph, the Electro:ype, and other useful applications; ard, as soon as possible, Astronomy, which is much in demand.
Chemistry has also been treated in a high!y popular manner, and has converted a great number of our Subscribers into practical Students of that art. The ele çant languages of ancient Greece and of modern Rome have also occupied oar pages, and have been expounded with great care by the authors of the Lessons on these branches of Literature; ror hare we forgot our S:udents in French, as a “ Course of Readings" in that popular language is still appearing at cozrenient intervals. The Mathematics, including Algebra and Geometry, with Instrumental Arithmetic and Alathematical Lastrations, hare aiso been progressing under our own care, and these branches will be still more vigorously jersaed in our next Volume, where some of them, if possible
, wil be brought to a conclusion. Bookkeeping has a resor occupied a portion of our labours, and we shail conclude this brar.ch in a few early Numbers, with the subject of Foreign Trade. The Lessons in Reeding and Elocation will be rendered still more useful and attractive in our rat Voime; but we canno: promise any new langu.ze tiil we have finished one or more of those now in hand; the Gezan, however, is very ritar a concasion. We are preparing for Lessons in Mechanical Drawing, and in various siter bracebes which have been unavoidabis. pstponed, on account of the great demand for those which we have sisen, and which we are now carrying on. In closing these remarks, we can only say that we shall continue to place before our Readers, as we bare aways striven to do, those subjects which are the most in demand, and which are calculared to do the greatest pole good to the greatest possible number."
