ANNOUNCEMENT.

An apology may be due those to whom this pamphlet is sent, for even this very feeble attempt at starting a new journal, when the field of journalism is already so well filled. But a promise is made to the readers that if this new journal—undertaken with much hesitation and diffidence-should prove at any time to have no reason to be, it shall at once cease. As being a mere ephemeral waif, it will be sent gratuitously to all. No subscribers are solicited nor any subscription list kept, nor are exchanges with other journals asked for. It may be issued bi-monthly, or quarterly, or irregularly, or not at all, as the occupations of an otherwise very busy life may determine; and its chief object is, in an informal way, to note down, from time to time, the results of a long experience and observation and the deductions therefrom, together with occasional original work, as time and opportunity may serve. The contents should be accepted, if at all, as information-not as krowledge;-as material which may be of value only for the moment, or may mature and come to be added to the common stock of knowledge. Ephemerides are things of short life—for a definite or indefinite period, or for the time being,-yet they may not be valueless nor be unimportant as elements in the growth of permanent knowledge. Indeed, they must, in their aggregate, bear an elementary relation to more permanent knowledge. An ephemeris of the materia medica, pharmacy and therapeutics seems to be a very pretentious, ostentatious title, but the subjects are so inseparably related as to form really but one intelligent idea, and that one still incomplete at both extremities.
