the last part of the nation to learn a new doctrine. And a nation is not to be instructed as you can instruct an inquisitive individual. Were a statesman in advance of the knowledge of the nation, he would find insuperable obstacles, in attempting to act up to the extent of his knowledge. Mankind, as a body, is ungrateful, and will not thank you for benefits conferred, nor see your good intentions to serve it, if you step out of a beaten track. The sound Reformer has no other encouragement than to be · queath his merited caresses to his senseless memory; or to enjoy them in anticipation. His patrons live not with him; but are to be his posterity: and from those persons with whom he lives, he finds more of insult than of gratitude. They see not the end of his reformation; they appreciate not his motives.

It is consolatory to be able to say, that, while the foregoing complaint is true, in relation to mankind as a body, it has, like every general rule, its exceptions in a part of that body. The life of a Reformer would be intolerable, if there were not some keen sighted individuals who can see his ends and appreciate his motives, and who are bold enough to encourage him to proceed, aud honest and benevolent enough to assist him. His state would be intolerable, but for these exceptions; for his proposed changes constitute an arraignment of all existing political and prejudicial powers; and these powers naturally make war upon him, while he is weak enough to suffer from their influence. To posterity, then, I dedicate the fourteen volumes of “The Republican," and to posterity I appeal to say whether or not I have done my duty as a Reformer. There are thousands living who will say that I have done it; but I aspire to the approbation of mankind as a body, and that I know must be the approbation of a future generation. 62, Fleet-street,
