TO READERS AND CORRESPONDENTS. Various opinions relative to the Corn Bill have, we trust, acceptably occupied several pages of our current Number. In the mean time, Parliament has adopter a palliative to diminish the symptoms, instead of removing the cuuse of the disease; and, during the discusa sions, the cause itself has been kept wholly out of sight, the primary effects being tregted as causes, and nothing proposed, but a means of palliating the symptoms !

Waca the Monthly Magazine was first planned, two leading Ideas occupied the minds of those who undertook to con

duct it. The first was, that of laying before the Public various objects of information and discussion, both Amusing and instructive; the second was that of lending aid to the propagation of those liberal principles re. specting some of the most important concerns of mankind, which have been either deserted or virulently upposed by other Periodical Miscellanies, and upon the manly and rational support of which the fame and rate

of the age must ultimately depend. Preface to Montbly Mag. Vol. I. as long 13 those who write are ambitious of making Converts, and of living their Opinions a Maximum of
