Still, it was not until September in the same year that a regular prospectus was offered, for 1 yet fea ed the want of matter, as well as the severe labor that I was sensible woulii become necessary to obtain it, if to be obtained at all. This prospectus contained these paragraphs:

*Peljeving, as we do, that the simplicity of the truth, as held forth by those who devised and executed the severance of this country from the power of a despot, has been widely departed froni, no effort on our part shall be wanting to encourage a spirit to seek after and hold on to the prin iples which appear essential to the preservation of the rights and liberties of the people of the United States; under an assurance that vigilance is the condition on which freedom is granted to us. But we en ter upon the undertaking before us with considerable diffidence-fearful of the want of a just discrimi. natio', and also of time for research and reflection to do justice to the weighty concern. It seemed however, to be imposed on us as a duty, and we will execute the task as well as we can.

"The materials, though the stock is pretty large, are not yet sufficient for the extensive work contemplated. The editor of the Register has, for several years, been a collector of scraps and rare things--several gentlemen have liberally contributed articles which they would not have parted with except on an occasion like this; and others have promised us liberty to overhaul their neglected stores of old papers: but much useful matter must be in the hands of those with whom we have not yet communicated on the subject; and every patriot is invited to give his aid to this collection, designed to record the feelings of the times that tried men's souls." Letters may be sent to the editor at his cost for postage, and originais will be carefully returned, if requested. When copies from manuscripts are presented, it might be well to permit us to state the source from whence they were deriv. d, if necessary."

The terms were also set forth-it was promised that the volume should contain between four and five hundred pages, and cost, in sheets, the sum of three dollars. A view to pecuniary profit was disavowed—it had nothing to do with the origin or progress of the work, and if a reasonable, allowance for money and time expended is afforded by its sale, it will be as much as ever has been expected.

I had no sooner fairly committed myself than I regretted it-the patriots of the revolution did not make speeches to be unattended to by their brethren in congress and fill up the columns of newspapers*. They only spoke when they had something to say, and preferred acting to talking very unlike the legislators of the present time. I plainly saw that great difficulties would oppose themselves to the fulfilment of my promise- I feared that more was expected of me than any man could dom for the facts that were manisest to my mind could not be appreciated by all: my pride, (an honest one, I trust), was alarmed-but, in obedience to a fixed rule that I have adopted for my own conduct," i resolved to meet the difficulty presented and conquer it by perseverance-if I could. To give some idea of the quantity of books and papers that have been looked into to effect this compilation, I think that I do not exaggerate when I say that they were sufficient to load a cart, and hours on hours have been spent in the service without the least profit. Perhaps, I was unlucky or unwise that my attention was not directed to the proper sources; it may be so—but of this I ain satisfied, that very few of the soul-stirring" speeches of the revolutionary period remain to warın the hearts of a grateful posterity: they were pronounced to be heard, not published.

With this bief narrative, I subunit the work to the liberality of my countrymen, American republicans-in the firm belief that, if I have not accomplished all that was hoped for by svine, it will appear that others are agreeably disappointed; and I am satisfied that good will result from the publication of this collection: it will rescue from oblivion many things that were hastening to it, and lay the foundation, perhaps, of a more extensive and much more perfect work, which I shall always keep in my view.

In explanation it is necessary further to observe, that the leading object of this volume. was to shew the feelings that prevailed in the revolution, not to give a history of events; hence, all matters of the latter class have been rejected, except as immediately necessary to shew the effects of feeling. The volume, also, might have been more acceptable if a greater degree of order had been observed as to dates, &c.; but it was almost impossible to approach regularity, in this respect, as well from the nature of things as from the occasional attention, only, that I was able to give to the work--but any inconvenience on this account is obviated by the copious index, o. table of contents. prefixed Two articles have been, unfortunately,

: inserted twice---but. as they are of an excellent quality, I shall not be sorry for it, if the error causes them to be twice read. Many notices of proceedings, &c. are given only to indicate the general conduct of the people on such occasions as they have reference to.

*The earl of Dartmouth asked an American in London, (whose name we cannot call to mind at present), of how many members the congress consisted? the reply was "fifty-wo,” “Why that is the num. ber of cards in a pack,” said his lordship"Now many knaves are there?" "Not one,” returned the republican- please to recollect that knaves are court cards!".
