The extreme lougth of Mr. Barelli's Third Stricture on Mrs. Piozzi's publication, otaliges og to postpone it until next month.

We thought we had at once acted a delicate and friendly part by our Cambridge Correspondent (whose name we shall fupprefs), by requesting him to reconsider his composition. Though he has returned no answer to our well-meant expoftulations, we shall forbear to expose him as he would have exposed himself; and therefore definitively refuse the publication of his Dialogue between Mabomet and Moseilama, out of regard to iris profession and profpects, as well as the chality of our own collection, and our private feelings on being offered a piece which should seem to have been rejected by another Magazine.-Would our author have us, like Mr. Gibbon's Theodora, almost display obe original recess?

Audi partem alteram having sent his performance to another Magazine, it cannot be inserted in this.-Tlie review of Mr. Pratt's Poem on Humanity in our next. AVERAGE PRICES of CORN, from July 14, to July 19, 1788.

FTER so long an intimacy as the EUROPEAN MAGA

ziNE has enjoyed with the Public, the kindess with which it has been received, and the friendship it has experienced, are circumstances the Proprietors cannot but look to with exultation ; and they presume they may now address themselves to their readers with that familiarity which long acquaintance and mutual good offices authorise and allow, unchecked by distance or reserve, undebased by adulation. If, in the present advanced state of English Literature, any periodical publication has been supposed to contribute to the improvement of Learning, to the enterrainment of the informed, or the information of the uninAtructed, the increased and extended circulation of the prefent publication may lay claim to its share of such praile as will not be denied to laudable and successful efforts for the service of the World.

THE EUROPEAN MAGAZINE is now extending the know. ledge of English Literature and English Manners into places where little relative to this Kingdom was formerly known, and where no periodical work had hitherto reach ed. Were the various compliments which have been re: ceived to be printed, they might seem to be the fabrica. tions of interested vanity. But though they are too numetous and too flattering for publication, the Proprietors would deem themselves inattentive to the rules of civility and decent attention, if they forbore to notice the receipt of such commendations as they can only acknowledge in the present general manner.

The Editors of this Magazine likewise cannot but express their satisfaction that their part of the present work has met with the approbation of all persons of taste and candour who have looked into it. The original pieces which have been procured, they can affert, are such as no other periodical publications have lately exhibited to the World, They are chiefly, where they are known, the productions of writers of the first class ; and they have many reasons to believe, that when time shall withdraw the ycis of concealB 2

inent

ment which for the present surrounds many of the rest, they will be found to belong to those whose names only will imply fame. That the favours of these correspondents will be continued, we have the most certain evidence, from manuscripts now in our hands, which will from time to time make their appearance, equally to the credit of their writers, and the entertainment of our readers.

Of the Plates which ornament the work, it is unnecese sary to add any thing, except that we again solicit a comparison with any other performance of the same kind. For future Numbers, several Engravings are already finifhed, and may be seen at the shop of the Publisher : others are in the hands of Artists, whose excellence, from the promise their present performance holds out, will hereafter add to the honour of the English nation. Among other advantages which arise from publications of this kind, the employment they have afforded to young artists, and the opportunity they have presented to then of displaying their talents, and becoming known to the Public, are not the leaft." We refer to futurity for the truth of this obfer, Yation.

To conclude : The Editors of THE EVROPEAN MAGAZINĘ commence the present Volume with a degree of confidence superior to any they have yet felt, that they shall, during the remainder of the year, produce before the Public fuch a work as shall not be inferior to any other of the same kind ever printed; and such a one as will not, like the generality of periodical performances, be thrown alide and loft amidst the train of the day,
