TO THE READER.
On the completion of our THIRD VOLUME, it may be expected that we should, as usual, offer a few passing remarks.
It will be remembered, that the Editor of this Periodical has ever been proudly desirous that it should stand “ alone” among the Serials. This, at a considerable pecuniary cost, and an immense amount of mental and bodily labor, has been accomplished. Its genial tone, and lofty aim, have been recognised and appreciated; its fame has gone abroad; and its patrons—not a few, are the very choicest of " choice spirits." All the supporters of our JOURNAL have indeed been fairly “won.” We hardly need say that we hate “fine writing.” We love Nature; and therefore write “naturally." All our Correspondents are of the same “ happy family.”
Hitherto, ours has been a “ labor of love" only. Not one penny in the way of remuneration have we yet received. “Faith" and “Hope” have supported us thus far. Now let the public kindly play the part of “ Charity,” and philanthropically enlarge the sphere of our usefulness; then are we willing to credit the hint given us-that “ another six months must see us triumphant."
Bold as the effort may be deemed, we will e'en make it.
