Milton describes the active and industrious emmnet as

“provident Of future; in small room large heart inclos'd.” What authority there may be for the asserted physiclogical fact in reference to the emmet, is a Query we submit to our readers, merely reminding them that Virgil has said the same thing of bees: at present we quote the words of our great poet as descriptive of the function and purpose which we have carried on throughout Fire Volumes, and which we shall keep steadily before us in that new Volume on which we are this day entering, and in the numberless remainder which we trust will follow. • Provident of future,” we shall lay up good store of valuable materials for all inquirers; and within the “ small room of our hebdomadal sheet shall strive to inclose a mass of matter more directly useful to literary men than has ever been crowded into such space before.

The continued kindness of our “increased and still increasing” band of contributors and correspondents enables us, volume by volume, to perform our office more perfectly. The number of important questions which we answer immediately, and the number cleared up by the friendly discussions in our pages, are both continually on the increase. Some day we shall be Parliamentary phrase) present a Return upon this subject which will excite no little surprise : at present we will merely express our warmest thanks to all our contributing friends, and assure them of our constant endeavour to insert their papers in the way which will be most useful, and at the same time most agreeable to themselves.

Slight curtailment, and some delay, are occasionally unavoidable; but we studiously endeavour to do the most entire justice to every paper that is sent to us, and that as quickly as possible. Such shall ever continue to be our aim : our only "strife” being how to please you all — readers, correspondents, note-makers, and querists – “day exceeding
