PREFACE.

“ May you live a thousand years," is the magnificent greeting of a Spaniard, but with all its magnificence, the wish is cold and fantastical; our English salutation,“ a good day to you," is unquestionably more humble, and yet far more pleasing. The one originated in an overheated imagination; the other was first poured forth from a kind and gentle heart; the Spaniard desires that you may live, the Englishman prays that you may live well, and for every thing beyond that rests meekly dependant upon a Higher Power. As it is in the common intercourse of life, so, also, we find it in literature ; and the feeling of the public towards periodical publications, partakes of the nature of our English greeting; it is not merely referable to the duration of our existence, but more especially to its quality. For the past, we claim some merit—in the volume now presented to our readers we hope there will be found much to commend and little to condemn; and for the future, we can speak with a confidence which partakes of the spirit of the Spanish proverb, but without its exaggeration—a confidence arising from the increased resources and additional merit derivable from a junction with a fellow candidate for public favor. The causes which have led to the relinquishment of the National Magazine as a separate work, are chiefly private and personal, and therefore unfit to be laid before the world; but our friends will find a spirit and vigour in the joint publication of “ The Inspector and National Magazine,” which will cause them to rejoice at so auspicious a conjunction.

To those friends who have supported us, and to the correspondents whose communications have been forwarded to us anonymously, we beg to return our public and grateful acknowledgments; letters will be found at our publisher's for T. H. K. and w.

May 31, 1827.
