PREF.ACE.

A COMPLETE volume for the year 1801 is now presented to the public by the proprietors of the Union Magazine. They trust, that those who have honoured the work with their patronage, will not, after an impartial review of it in all its branches, find cause to reproach them with any breach of the engagements to the performance of which they pledged themselves in their prospectus. They readily admit, that, like every work of the same nature, it is not without defects; but, taken as a whole, they do not shrink from a fair comparison

of its merits with those of the other monthly pub

lications.
In the Biographical Sketches the utmost attention
has been given to correctness of statement, which
has been generally collected from authentic sources,
while the language of servile adulation and gross
invective has been studiously avoided.
The Miscellaneous Department will be found to
contain more original matter, at once combining
what is useful and what is entertaining, than that
which commonly occurs in similar undertakings.
Particular care has been given to confer on the Fine
Arts, by selection, or by criticism, the interest and
distinction to which they have an undisputed claim

in a state of liberal and refined society; nor have those which form the grand stamina of national prosperity, agriculture, manufactures, and commerce, been passed over without due notice.

Of the Political Sentiments of which the Magazine has been the vehicle, it may be said, with pride and confidence, that they are those only which emanate from the genuine spirit of the British Constitution.

In short, the proprietors beg leave to express a well-founded conviction, that in no single branch of the work have the plan and execution been such as to justify their subscribers in applying to them the sentiment of the poet:
