The first volume of the Gardener's Magazine being completed, the purchasers of it will naturally, and very properly, compare its contents with the plan and promises held forth in the Prospectus. We invite them to do so. This may appear presumption or vanity: it would be so, were we not indebted to our contributors for having been enabled to carry into execution that plan and those promises. That our contributors are neither few nor unknown, that they are well qualified to be of essential service to the cause in which we are embarked, the list of them subjoined will amply testify.

We had two grave objects in view ;- to disseminate new and important information on all topics connected with horticulture, and to raise the intellect and the character of those engaged in this art. That these objects have been furthered even during the short period of this Magazine's existence, we cannot doubt, when we consider the number of subjects treated of in original articles, the quantity of valuable matter condensed in the reviews, the great variety of miscellaneous intelligence, foreign and domestic, and even the implements, new fruits, addresses of garden artists and artisans, titles of books on gardening, and rural subjects, recorded in the advertising department. A number of the books from which information is drawn are in foreign languages, and others, from their prices, out of the reach of most readers, and especially of those readers to whom their use would be the greatest.

As the object of the Gardener's Magazine is the dissemination of useful knowledge, its subjects inexhaustible as the vegetable kingdom, and among the most interesting that concern domestic life; its plan calculated to procure information from every possible source at home or abroad ; its contributors belonging to every department of gardening and botany; and its conductor devoted to the subject, from inclination no less than interest, its readers. may reasonably expect it to improve as it advances. At all events, they may rely that no exertion will be wanting on the part of its conductor to render it of real service to gardening and gardeners, and worthy a continuation of that encouragement which it has received.

J. C. L. Bayswater, London, Sopt. 1826.
