Imatges de pÓgina

affords at the present day; an instance, we believe, unprecedented in the annals of the hebdomadal press: the MAGNET being the 'only publication, amidst the astonishing number that weekly make their appearance, that is composed of ORIGINAL ARTICLES.

Instead of feeling vain, and growing careless, with the consciousness of superiority, the success we have heretofore experienced, so far from quenching that spirit of emulation that we have hitherto been actuated by, will serve as a stimulus for our further agd more energetic exertions. We offer no pledge for our future exertions, other than what we have already performed: but, in order to prove our undertaking is intended to be carried into effect, we are willing to be judged by the first numbers of the forthcoming volume, in which every improvement that the work is susceptible of, either as regards literary matter, or graphic embellishments, will be found ; which, it is hoped, will not only sustain the proud character our work already possesses, but also render the MAGNET the centre of ATTRACTion in the hebdomadal press of the most enlightened and flourishing city of the world.
