Aften a delay much greater than was anticipated, the editor has at last the pleasure to present his readers with the Inder for, and a voluminous Appendir to, the third volume of the Weekly Register. He flatters himself that the inder will be found to answer all the purposes designed; for, considering it of the last importance to the utility of the work, and feeling the too general imperfection of things of this kind—a plan, differing in some re. spects from that hitherto pursued, has been adopted, which appears to combine simplicity with clearness. In the choice of matter for the Appendix we were chiefly guided by the will to add value to the Registen as a common reference—and whatever may be thought of the selection, we claim this merit, that the gratuity cost us $600.

At the 70th number we suspended nearly 500 papers, for the want of attention to the terms on which it is published. This was thought a harsh messure by some; but it should be recollected that the validity of every periodical work depends—not upon the number of its subscribers, but upon their punctuality. Notwithstanding this procedure the list of our names has increased.

With an honest pride, sustained by the favorable manner in which the Weekly Regis’ TER is received by the public, the editor will zealously pursue the general plan of the work —and while he shall refuse to interfere in any of the party disputes of the times, do his best to maintain the cause of the republic against all its enemies: forei n and domestic. But

the leading object shall be to collect and preserve an honest history and record of the events of the times, documental, military and miscellaneous.

We have only to add, (for it will give pleasure to the friends of the work) that if the Registen yields to no work in America as to the number of copies printed, it has equal high ground in regard to the respectability of its subscribers; and that, lately, many of the most prominent characters in the United States are added to its patrons.

Extract from an Oration, on Literature, Delivered in Tennessee.

An important enquiry, involved in this subject, regards the probable character of the human species, uninfluenced by literature. There is also a second enquiry, not less important than the former, which respects the amelioration of the early condition and character of the human race, under the progressive influence of literary refinement.

To preserve and perpetuate his existence, were, perhaps the first employments of man.—To perform. these duties effectively, he had to declare war against every thing hostile to his life and its preservation, and, to appropriate to his own use, whatever he found beneficial in the universe around him. Feeling nothing but the pressure of increasing wants, his pas" sions were inflamed in proportion; destitute of a knowledge of his own, and the rights of others, tha obsequious slave of impulse, and ruled by the storms of unsubdued passions—collision, anarchy and des. potism, successively, and in turn assailed him for, the law of force, the dominion of physical power alone, could restrain and repress the rapine of scifish want, crush the anarchy of contending individuals, and reduce to order and silence, the conflictions and the clamors, of rapacity and ignorance —Asyct, reason had not operated powerfully, for she had acquired but few data, from which to infer the future, by the past of man. Experience had not, as yet, even strongly inculcated the utility of reason and reflection; it had not exemplified, recurring to preceding ages, that human happiness might be the product of profound investigation of the true cat:ses of misery, and that a profound knowiedge of trut was only to be sound in the labyrinths of experimental error. In fine, experience had not yet intimated

to man the gradual progression by which errors of

opinion, and derelictions of conduct, could be instrumental in cdvancing his steps to happiness and truth. Individuals, families and nations were wandering in a maze of conjecture and uncertainty, with regird to the past, and listening, with pueriie credulity and superstitious awe, to the traditionary lore of ignorance, infirmity and garrulous old age. , i.iterature. had not yet unveiled, upon the page of history, the means by which sagacious and enlightenci policy could give elevation, prosperty and power to hunan institutions—it had not yet enabled the philosophic politician to detect the lurking principles of defection and decoy, that afer receiving lite and activity from the depravites inseparable from ignorance, Jurory and idleness, paralized the virtues of the people, and sported with the fate of nations. It had not yet enabled him to trace the corrupt influences of vemal administration upon the best constituted governments, and to cut off the fountains of detection and ruin, before they had sapped the foundations of popular confidence, and alienated from such governments the attachments of the people. It had not yet enabled him to distinguish between the patriot and dema. gogue; to demonstrate, that in their private ch rocters alone were to be found the only evidences of political virtue and depravity—it had not tought ...ro

the salutary lesson, that the former cannot be ori
