ment, but more from the increased fulness with which each subject has been treated. This fact, we think, so far from being regretted, renders the Volume more valuable than it otherwise would have been.

Of the new sections of our Magazine, opened at the commencement of the year, we need only say that they were hailed with satisfaction by our regular subscribers, and we think they will be found to have added to the interesting features of the Volume. There is, however, one of our departments which seems to call for special notice, namely, “ The Young Student and Writer's Assistant." The augmented space which we have devoted to the educational exercises there given may appear too great for the number of persons who have availed themselves of our Classes. Our apology for this must be that our interest in this very laborious part of our operations has been constantly increased by marking the progress made by our earnest students, and receiving their oft repeated expressions of gratitude for the aid we have rendered them. By way of illustration, we may quote from a letter now lying before us, in which a young man in respectable circumstances writes—“I can honestly say that your class has been the means of rescuing me from an unenviable state of ignorance. When I sought to be enrolled as a student, I did so more from curiosity than a real desire for improvement. Yet how thankful am I that I did so! It marked an epoch in my history; for, while through it I have become painfully sensible of my lack of knowledge, it has aroused me from the intellectual lethargy in which I indulged. My humble thanks, pure and sincere, I offer for the advantages I have derived from your class, and trust that you may be the means of rescuing many, as you have me, from careless ignorance.” If, under the influence of such communications as this, we have shown too great an interest in our students, the cause has only to be understood for censure to be rendered powerless. But, after all, we do not see why the space occupied by the section under review should be regarded as lost to those who have not joined our classes; the exercises can easily be adapted for other purposes, and nothing would rejoice as more than to hear of our readers making them the basis of benevolent efforts, in their various localities, for the instruction of the uneducated around them.

Space forbids us specially noticing the other sections of this Volume, but we may refer all our readers to the Index, as

“ There is seen The baby figure of the giant mass

of things to come at large." We cannot close without availing ourselves of this opportunity of expressing our deep obligation to those Gentlemen-and Ladies too-who have written for our pages, sought

to increase our circulation, or in any way strengthen our position and augment our * influence. We beg them not to regard this as a formal acknowledgment, but to accept it as a sincere and heartfelt one. We hardly need hint that in the coming year we shall require their continued support, and doubt not that they will cheerfully render it: we would at the same time invite others to join their ranks and share their efforts, assuring them that in so doing they will enjoy the highest possible reward in the consciousness of being engaged in a great and good work, and helping on the cause of man's mental and moral elevation.
