Monthly Magazines have opened a way for every kind of inquiry and inforination. The intelligence and discussion contained in them are very extensive and various ; and they have been the means of diffusing a general habit of reading through the nation, which, in a certain degree hath enlarged the public understanding. HERE, too, are preserved a multitude of uscful hints, observations, and facts, which otherwise might never have appeared.--Dr. Kippis.

A THE ATHENEUM, or Spirit of the ENGLISH MAGAZINES, is published in Boston, on the 1st and 15th of every month. Each number contains forty pages large octavo, forming two volumes of five hundred pages each in a year, at the low price of Five Dollars per annum. The work is regularly forwarded by mail to subscribers at a distance. Its appearance twice a month renders it more convenient to transport, and with less delay, than monthly publications, whilst by this mode of publication it is enabled to anticipate whatever is novel or entertaining in the literary, scientific, and fashionable world.

The publishers receive by every arrival from England the magazines, printed in London and Edinburgh, and the selections are made with a scrupulous regard to the tastes of those who read for relaxation, amusement, or instruction.

The work commenced in April, 1817; and the volumes are dated from April and October in each year.

A few complete sets may be had, either bound at $3, or in yellow paper at $2,50 per volume.
