IN completing the Fourth Volume of the PORTFOLIO, the Proprietor feels himself called upon to return his sincere Thanks for the immense Patronage with which this Work has been honored.

PREFACE.

The very great increase of new Subscribers to the First Number of this new Volume warrants the Proprietor in confidently hoping that there will be an adequate increase for the next. The quality of the paper, the beauty of the typography, and the importance of our original matter, we unhesitatingly say, will secure to us that proud eminence which, by our industry, we have gained over the Hebdo

medal Press.
