ADVERTISEMEN T.

a

:

NO greater proof can be given of the advantage and pleasure resulting from any

literary production, than the confiant, voluntary support of the public. Our unwearied exertions to give general fatisfaction have been again crowned with success, and we have the happiness to find, at the conclufion of the year 1780, that the number of our friends is confilerably increased.

It is with great please therefore, that we repeat our annual tribute of grateful acknowledgemenis to eetry individual, who has been pleased to countenance this undertaking, either as a purchaser, or as a generous contributor to our labours.

Tie patronage we bave jo long envyed is the more flattering, as, of late years, we bave been surrounded avith competitors, who have taken no finall pains, to obtain the same favourable difiinction.

Emulation has been excited by this laudable contest, and it has been productive of considerable in provements. To the strength and solidity of our ancient edifice, bas been added, every modern decoration and embellishment, suited to the reigning taste.

OUR JUBILEE commences zvith the ensuing year, when we shall think it more especially incumbent upon us, to make cur FIFTIETH volume, a conspicuous monument of gratitude for past javours, and a signal of our earnest desire to merit future fuccefs.

The perplexed fituation of public affairs, is likely to afford us many subjeets of a serious and interesling nature. The progress of a war in which our All seems to be at flake, will demand a considerable share of our attention, being determined fieadily to pursue, the approved cuflom, of giving just descriptions, with accurate plans, charts, and maps of the countries, cities, and coasts, that may hereafter be the scenes of ation : to these mall be annexed every paper communicating authentic intelligence, or recording the spirited conduct of our gracious Sovereign in the support of the dig. inity of his crown, and the rights of bis jubjects, againfi ibe treachery of falje friends, and the perfidy of the ancient sworn foes to the British empire.

PORTRAITS, with the best memoirs that can be procured, of those gallant officers, in the land and sea service, who signalise themselves at this awful crisis, in maintaining the honour, independence, and envied superiority of their country, will confitute the chief ornament of our work, and may victory attend them in every quarter of the globe!

Hiflory will, as usual, occupy a limited space, for the infruction of youtb; and as a relief from subjects of a serious, and studious caft; Jørightly dialogues; witty éjsays; elegant letters; anecdotes; extracts from entertaining publications ; fugitive pieces on topics of the day; an account of our theatrical exhibitions ;, and in fine, all other articles generally inserted in similar productions, will find a place in ours, when they are not postponed for more important objects.

Every alteration in our commercial system is worthy of notice in a maritime, commercial state ; the genuine fpirit of British generosity has at length surmounted prejudice, and the selfish views of individuals; the freedom of trade granted and confirmed to Ireland in the courje of the last year, forms an ara in the annals of come merce which deserves commemoration. The skill of the artist could not well be employed upon a more pleasing subject *.- -The most beneficial consequences may be expected from this union of interests between the two kingdoms ; it will furnijh us with additional strength in time of war, and will cramp the power of our enemies, by diminishing their supplies of provisions. And in times of peace, by augmenting tbe population and industry of the irish, it will afford new resources to the united empire of Great Britain. We bid adieu to our readers for the present, with a bint that we Mall open the new year, with a portrait of our young royal naval oficer Prince William Henry (to whòn our Magazine for January 1781, will be dedicated) and with an accurate chart of the coasis of England and Holland,
