N our Preface to last Year's MAGAZINE,
we foretold what Source of Materials would
be furnished us for the ensuing Year, by the
then Crisis of Affairs in Europe, and the
ticklish Situation of this Country ; and from
the

many exact Accounts we have given of foreign and domestick Affairs, every Reader, we belicve, has found this Prophecy compleatly fulfilled. We wish we could have finished this Year with the Terms of a safe, honourable, and glorious Peace ; for our FRONTISPIECE to this Year’s MAGAZINE, will shew that we are far from delighting in War. This we might probably have been enabled to do, if the surprizing and glorious Victories of the King of Prussia, had been duly seconded by the warlike Exploits of this Nation ; and this they would have been

, if our military Force, by Sea and Land, had been as Execution, as the Measures for that Purpose bave of late been wisely planned by those who had the Direction.

The P R E F A CE. But as Matters now stand, we can hardly expect, that our Enemies will sue for Peace, before the Trial of another Campaign ; and whilst we have such an invincible Navy upon the Ocean, this Ifand may resolutely adhere to the Maxim of the Old ROMANS, never to sue for Peace, but to grant it to a suppliant Enemy, who offers ample Satisfaction for all part Injuries, and full Security against

any future.

THEREFORE, in our MAGAZINE for the ensuing Year, we hope, our Readers will find not only more Materials, but much more satisfactory Materials, than they have found in the past. And as we have great Reason to thank them for the Indulgence they have hitherto fewn us, we Mall endeavour to deserve a Continuance of that Indulgence in Time to come.

PE

The FRONTISPIECE exhibits PEACE fly

ing at the Approach of WAR. EACE is represented crowned with Olives, and

holding a Cornucopia in one Hand, and in the other an Olive Branch; the Boy with the Bundle of Arrows tied together, signifies Concord ; and the Figure behind, with the Lyre, signifies polite Learning; all which are flying away at the Approach of the God of War, who is advancing with his Sword drawn, and trampling on Instruments of Agriculture. The Furies follow, treading on Heaps of Dead; and in the Distance is a Town on Fire.
