least to his fortune, repulsed from his side by his own haughtiness, till " his star" set in blood. We have seen the ferocious become a supplicant and a prisoner, although his inveterate decrees were among the first public events, which it was our duty to record. We found our Country involved in war : with infinite satisfaction we leave it in peace.

We then did our duty, by supporting with our humble powers the means of national protection; and we have subsequently discharged the same duty by giving a faithful and free opinion on the conduct incumbent on our countrymen, in order to secure the most valuable advantages offered them by the present tranquillity.

Our Readers will have perceived that of late our attention has been much increased in reference to British Commerce, and to the acquisition of intelligence from various quarters of the globe: these communications will be continued, and with invigorated effect ; including also the continuation of that Continental Intelligence for which our Work has stood pre-eminent. They will now be transferred to .

THE NEW MONTHLY MAGAZINE,

AND

LITERARY PANORAMA,

PUBLISHED BY MR. COLBURN, PUBLIC LIBBARY, CONDUIT STREET;

BELL AND BRADFUTE, EDINBURGH; AND J. CUMMING, DUBLIN.

To this connexion we entreat permission to refer our valued Correspondents, as well literary as commercial ; and, again expressing our gratitude to them, and to the Public at large, for numerous and highly valued favours, we most respectfully take our leave.

July 1, 1819.

accurate record of domestic and family history, it forms a complete register of every novelty in the arts, sciences, and letters, equally acceptable to the scholar and the philosopher, to the man of leisure and the man of business. Established on the principles of sound patriotism, it peculiarly recommends itself toall real lovers of their country, as a popular vehicle for the dissemination of political truth, and as the best antidote to a Magazine distinguished for sentiments tending to encourage disaffection and infidently, and consequently subversive of all our existing political, religious, and social institutions,
