embrace natural history, in common with agriculture and gardening; and a magazine has been commenced in Australia, in which natural history forms a prominent feature.
So congenial are natural history pursuits to the human mind, and so much do they tend to the progress of civilisation, to increased domestic comfort, to peace between nations, and to human happiness, that to us it appears that it would be treason to nature to assert that this state of things will not be progressive, and will not go on increasing, till the condition of mankind every-where is improved to an extent of which we can at present form no idea.
The more frequent appearance of this Magazine, as well as the considerable addition to the quantity of matter which will be given in the course of the year, demands corresponding exertions on the part of its Editor and Conductor ; but our readers and contributors may safely rely on these being made. In conclusion, we cordially thank our contributors for their past assistance, and earnestly invite them to continue to add to the common stock of knowledge through the medium of our pages.
