Excerpt from The Monthly Magazine, and British Register, Vol. 5: Part I, 1798, From January to June, Inclusive We cannot too often repeat, that the communications we mofi value, are thofe which convey new and authehtic information refpeéling matters of important to the progrefs of ufeful knowledge, and tending to ameliorate the condition of mankind. Were all that 18 partially, known, freely thrown into the general flock by reciprocal difclofurc, we are convinced that more immediate good would refult, than by pn'r firing the molt promifing vein of difcovery. We prefume to lay, that theextenfive circulation of our Mifcellany renders it a peculiarly fit vehicle Tor this purpofe; and we {hall take care, by an early infertion of loch matter, to forward the views of our eorrefpondents.

Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Excerpt from The Monthly Magazine, or British Register of Literature, Sciences, and the Belles-Lettres, Vol. 1: January to June, 1826 This is neither just nor liberal, and we cannot be sin-prized that the colo nists should require some guarantee before they dehver themselves and theiraproperties to the wild and visionary schemes of speculative indi vid 3. If the measure is a public measure, let its consequences rest upon public responsibility. As a great national work, every one must admit that it is worthy of the age in which we live, and of the country which it is our, pride to call our own but as it is a measure surrounded with difficulties it must be approached with caution. That it is prac ticable I firmly believe, and if undertaken by' the Government, and con ducted with temperance and prudence, it is perfectly reconcileable with the interests of the planters, and the security of the islands. That colonial property, unhampered by the continual agitation of this ques tion, retains its fair value in the estimation of European capitalists, is evident from the facility with which, we are told, the Commissioners of Hayti have negociated a loan for their government, to y the indemnity ed upon to the ancient proprietors of the island or the recognition 0 its independence. This payment denotes the feeling entertained by the blacks - that indemnity was due. Now this feeling, which has been acted upon, after a long lapse of years, by self-emancipated slaves, should be the ground-work of our own proceedings in the manumission of our negroes, and, before we commence any operations, we should seek an ample guarantee for the pro rty of the lanters and the safety of the colonies. The one is blende with the other. The dominion of Great Britain would fall with the annihilation of the whites: and the possession of our west-india Islands is now become of paramount im portance. The establishment of so many new ovemments in the American hemisphere has rendered them absolute y nece for the pfotection of our commerce and the extension of our tr e. The nited States of America have lon felt the inconveniency of having no harbour subject to their flag in the uro an seas, and frequent intrigues have been afloat to obtain one of the is da in the Mediterranean, but hitherto without success. The same, difficulties would attend our American commerce, if we suffered ourselves to lose our trans-atlantic possessions, either by the dissafl'ection of the whites, or the insurrection of the slaves.

Genre: Self-Help

Excerpt from The Monthly Magazine, or British Register, Vol. 4: July to December, 1840 Aisha. Eclecticism is not the absence'of all system for it is the application of a system it supposes a system, it starts from a system. In fact, if we would collect and combine the truths scattered in dif ferent systems, we must first separate them from the errors with which they are mingled; and in order to do this, we must know how to ascertain and distin ish them; but to ascertain whether a given Opinion is true or se, we must know ourselves what is error and that is truth; we must therefore alread be in possession, or at least think that we are in possession of trn we must have a system in order to judge all systems. Eclecticism supposes a system already formed, which it continues to illustrate and enrich; it is not, therefore, the absence of all system. I would now ask, if Eclecticism be a conception which belongs exclusively to myself? By no means. Ishould grestl distrust an idea which was entirely new in the world which no one ad ever thought of before. No, thank God, Eclecticism is not of yesterday. It was born the moment that a sound head and a feeling heart undertook to reconcile two passionate adversaries, by showing them that the Opi nions for which they combated were not irreconcilable in themselves, and that, with a few mutual sacrifices, the might be brought toge ther. Eclecticism was long ago in the 01a of Plato; it was the pro fessed enterprise, whether legitimate or not, of the school of Alexan dria. Among the modems, it was not merely professed by Leibnitz, ttwas constantly practised by him; and it is every where presented in the rich historical views of the new German phiimophy. The time has arrived at last to elevate it to the precision and the dignity of a prin ciple. This is whati have attempted to do. This word, long since fallen into deep oblivion, scarcely uttered by a single voice, has echoed from one end of Europe to the other, and the spirit of the nineteenth century has recognised itself in Eclecticism. They will know how to pursue their path together in spite of every obstacle. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
