PREFACE.

HE present is the EIGHTH VOLUME of “THE

POPULAR LECTURER," and the FIRST VOLUME of the New SERIES of the work, in which there

is a fresh feature of interest under the head of

“ READINGS." The issue of “THE POPULAR LECTURER AND READER” on our sole responsibility was' an experiment: we are glad to say that it has proved sufficiently successful to justify its continuance. We hope our friends will continue, and, if possible, increase their patronage, in order that the work may be rendered remunerative, and in that way made more worthy of perusal and preservation. If each subscriber for one volume would take two, and present the duplicate to some Working Men's Club or Library, the act would bring a double blessing.

A glance at the “ Contents” will show that we have given variety in both departments of the work.
