GREAT and IMPORTANT as the interests connected with our vast Empire in India may be considered, the anxiety to know something of the Government, Commerce, and Affairs of that distant country has hitherto been confined to the very highest circles of society, so that the circulation of all Works exclusively devoted to these topics has been of necessity circumscribed within the limits of those circles only. Recent events, however, added to the approaching termination of the East India Company's Charter, having contributed to awaken a much more general and powerful interest in these subjects than has ever been manifested before, Mr. Buckingham is desirous of meeting the wants and wishes of the community at large, by bringing the ORIENTAL Herald more within the reach of all classes of readers than its previous price would admit of.

It will accordingly be reduced from 5s. to 3s. 6d. per Number,--the ordinary price of the principal Monthly Journals --in the assurance that the increased circulation likely to be obtained for it, by the intense interest now excited in all parts of the kingdom on questions of Indian Policy and Trade, will render it more extensively useful to the great cause of which it is the only exclusive advocate,namely, the improvement of our intercourse with the Eastern World.

This reduction in price will not only apply to all the Numbers to be issued in future, but, for the accommodation of those who may desire to possess any previous portions of the work, the numbers already issued will be furnished at the same reduced rate. It is therefore hoped that this sacrifice to the public utility will be met by a corresponding spirit on the part of the British blic, whose interests it has never ceased to advocate, and that there will be few families or individuals in the respectable ranks of life who will not avail themselves of this opportunity to make themselves acquainted with its contents.

A very few perfect sets of The Oriental Herald now remain, in twenty-two octavo Volumes of 600 pages each; and the following reduced scale of prices will bring these also within the reach of private purchasers, as well as of Public Men and Public Institutions, to whom, as being furnished with copious Indexes for reference, it may be safely offered as a complete Library in itself on all subjects connected with the Government, Manners, Institutions, Productions, and Trade of the whole Eastern WorldComplete Set, 22 vols., full bound

12 12 0

10 10 0 Annual Subscriptions in Numbers

2 2 0 Orders for the Work will be received by all Booksellers in the Kingdom, and the Numbers will be regularly supplied to the parties desiring it.

In addition to the latest and best information on all topics connected with the Policy and Commerce of the East, THE ORIENTAL HERALD will now contain three distinct Series of Original and Entertaining Articles :-namely, Lectures on Palestine, including an enlarged view of Sacred Criticism, and Scriptural Illustrations in detail ;-Travels in Egypt, Nabia, and Arabia, and an account of the splendid Antiquities to be seen on the Banks of the Nile ; --aud a Voyage along the Coast of Malabar, Ceylon, Coromandel, Golronda, and Bengal, including all the principal ports between Bombay, Madras, and Calcutta. These thier Series, which consist of matter equally interesting to the Biblical Reader, the Antiquarian, and the Lover of Voyages and Travels in distant regions of the globe, cannot fail to render the Work acceptable to all classes.
