PREFACE.

WE here present to our readers the thirty-second volume of The MIRROR, with the gratifying reflection, that amidst such a vast number of cotemporaries, it still boasts of holding a proud pre-eminence in the estimation of the public. This continued patronage will excite in us vigorous and untiring efforts to infuse into our MIRROR such a light, that Man may see himself reflected in all his pomp and circumstance; bringing home to him faithful scenes of daily life, portraying the manners, customs, arts, manufactures, science, with all the vast improvements of the age throughout the world; at the same time, illuminating our pages with selections from the brightest modern gems of poetry and fiction, blending them with the sweets of many a sterling old author, whose works lie neglected on solitary unexplored shelves, or tottering book-stalls, unknown-tog or pasized over by, the idle and even the diligent.

It would be ungracious not to acknowledge, which we do with pride, the great increase of Correspondents; to whom we tender our unfeigned thanks.

And now we beg to call the attention of our friends to the many Embellishments that adorn and illustrate our pages, engraved from Original Drawings expressly for THE MIRROR, and which are not to be met with in any other work: among them may be mentioned, the monument of Dr. Johnson, at Leicester :- Temporary Exchange, London :-Old and New Serjeants' Inns :—West Drayton Church :-Polytechnic Institution, Regent-street :-Fire-work Temple in Hyde
