PREFACE.

Another half-yearly Volume is concluded, and we are proud to say that, through the favour of our Subscribers, Sharpe not only still continues to support its ground, but steadily to increase in public estimation. The utmost attention has been given to maintain that moral and religious tone which renders it a safe and acceptable Journal for family perusal. The works of fiction that give life and interest to its pages are generally admired, and the biographical and miscellaneous articles have been considered by our contemporaries as equal to many in publications of higher pretension. For the only subject of complaint—-the sudden cessation of the "Story of a Family"—-we have endeavoured to make amends by two long and elaborate notices. Illness has unfortunately prevented the completion of " Lewis Arundel" in the present Volume; but our Subscribers will not have long to wait for the denouement of the story, which will be followed at no long interval by another of no less interest.
