ADVERTISEMENT.

THE want of a system of Rhetoric upon a concise plan, and at an easy price, will, it is presumed, render this little volume acceptable to the public. To collect knowledge, which is scattered over a wide extent, into a small com. pass, if it has not the merit of originality, has, at least, the advantage of being useful. Many, who are terrified at the idea of travelling over a ponderous volume in search of information, will yet set out on a short journey in pursuit of science with alacrity and profit. Those for whom the following Essays are principally intended, will derive peculiar benefit from the brevity with which they are conveyed. To youth, who are engaged in the rudiments of learning; whose time and attention must be occupied by a variety of subjects, every branch of science should be rendered as concise as possible. Hence the attention is not fatigued, nor the memory overloaded.
