When our Prospectus was laid before the public, it received, at once, that attention and approbation which they always bestow on a good design. Our design, as stated in that prospectus, is not changed. The success of the work is evidence, that it could not be changed with a hope of improvement. We shall, therefore, devote ourselves, zealously and perseveringly, to the attainment of the objects, which we then proposed. We shall occasionally offer our readers articles and intelligence upon some topics, which it was not in our mind to discuss when we commenced the work. But as to the future character of the Gazette, we make no promises. We shall therefore disappoint no hopes. We think it is right to merit the public approbation, and then we may with confidence expect it.
