HE very rapid and extensive sale of the
first two volumes of this Work has fully confirmed thc Editor's opinion that such a publication was much wanted, and induced him to believe, that, fo long as it shall be conducted with judgment and impartiality, it will continue to be honoured with the patronage of the Public.
The Reader is respectfully assured, that no political bias has, in any one infance, affected the conduct of this Volume. Wit or humour, found sense or just satire, have always secured infertion to an article, without any regard to the party which it seemed designed to favour. If it be found, that the majority of the political
papers are still on the anti-ministerial fide, it must be attributed to the cause assigned in the Preface to the Second Volume; namely, the paucity of articles possessing the requisite qualifications, that have appeared in what are called the Government Journals.
It will not, however, escape notice, that the contents of this Third Volume are of a more miscellaneous nature than those of the preceding: a circumstance which, it is believed, will render the Work more extensively interesting.
