ADDRESS.

OUR subscribers and friends have long been urging us to take higher ground, and to establish our work on a scale which its acknowledged merits and powerful resources entitle it to adopt. We have, accordingly, for a very considerable time past, been perfecting a plan for a change, which, we trust, will be found to be as eligible as it will be decided. Nor is it on light grounds that this change will be resorted to; for it had, indeed, become quite impossible, from the present limited form of the Magazine, to allow of that vast additional strength being called into use which we have been enabled to command.

Peculiar circumstances have, within the last year, enabled us greatly to extend our literary connexion: arrangements have, in consequence, been made for commencing the New Year with a New SERIES of the London MAGAZINE, a Series which, for the increased stores of its literary wealth, and for its typographical neatness, shall be worthy of being placed in the library of the reader as a work of more than temporary interest. Our plan, we trust, will be found such as to admit of our doing justice to the public, our contributors, and ourselves.

The New Series will be enriched with Essays from the pens of several of the most distinguished writers of the age ; and, as the numbers of our contributors have been largely increased, this department will be marked with that variety which is the highest charm of the periodical essayist.

Subjects of Antiquities, Science, and Art, will receive our particular attention, and we have reason to believe that much light will be thrown by some of our papers on many controverted points. In Geology, especially, we have some curious articles relating to recent interesting Discoveries.

The Poetry of the London Magazine will be-poetry; a characteristic which it must be owned has seldom attended those little ricketty children of the Muses whose birth-days are invariably on the first of the month. The Poetry, in fact, of the London MAGAZINE will be found to be the very reverse of Magazine poetry in general.

In the Reviews and Notices of new works, the plan of the New Series will be found to be peculiarly improved, -as the most ample arrangements have been made not only for giving full and impartial articles upon the

modern publications of ability of our own country,--but also for procuring analytical notices of the most popular foreign productions, and at an earlier time than any of our contemporaries can possibly accomplish.

The Drama will also meet with an attention which (to our shame, in a parenthesis, be it spoken) it has not hitherto experienced in the LONDON MAGAZINE. It will be the object f those to whom this department will be entrusted, not only to give a faith tl and fair Review of the productions of our living Dramatic Authors, but to endeavour at correcting the present vitiated taste of the town, by directing the public attention to those old Writers whose Works, like wine, become enriched by their age.

Even in the Monthly Summary, at the end of each Number, improvements will be found to be introduced: and those matter-of-faet Notices, which have generally been looked upon as makeweights to the valuable material of a Magazine, will become important, from the care with which they will be compiled. Our Reports shall be such as might be given in evidence.

The LONDON MAGAZINE AND Review (for the Work will even “ take and bear the name and arms” of a Review) will of necessity be very considerably increased in size—and its form and appearance will be improved to the utmost extent of which a periodical work is capable. Each page will be handsomely printed, without that white space which has hitherto given a newspaper-look to the work. As far as printing goes, it is our intention, in future, to tempt no more the fate “of gods, men, and columns.A slight alteration (an alteration which we trust will not be considered more unreasonable than any other,) will also take place in the price:-each Number will in future be charged 3s. 6d.

The above is a brief outline of the change which The LONDON MAGAZINE is about to undergo. We shall leave the Public to judge, from the New Series itself, whether we have not for once accomplished that very unusual production-a true Prospectus of a Periodical Work.
