And he a solemn sacred plight

Did to St Bryde of Douglas make.

St. XXVIII. p. 202..

This was a favourite saint of the house of Douglas, and of the Earl of Angus in particular; as we learn from the following passage. The Queen-regent had proposed to raise a rival noble to the ducal dignity; and discoursing of her purpose with Angus, he answered, “Why not, madam? we are happy that have such a princess, that can know and will acknowledge men's service, and is willing to recompence it: But, by the might of God (this was his oath when he was serious and in anger; at other times, it was by Saint Bride of Douglas), if he be a Duke, I will be a Drake!"-So she desisted from prosecuting of that purpose.-GODSCROFT, Vol. II. p. 131..

The defign of the Farmer's Magazine is to collect and diff.minate ingenious Theories, important and well-authenticated Facts, and accurate Experiments, which relate to the different branches of rural economy. It must be well known to every perfon in the leaft acquainted with the different parts of the United Kingdom, that difcoveries and improvements, particularly in Agriculture, travel very flowly. To remedy this, the Farmer's Magazine was firft projected; and the Proprietors are happy to fay, that if they may judge from the almost unprecedented fale of more than, 4000 copies of each Number, the object of this publication is in a great degree anfwered. The Work, in its plan and arrangement, is well calculated for the end the Proprietors had in view. It confifls of-1. Mifcellaneous Communications, chiefly of the most important practical nature.-2. The Review of Agricultural Publications.-3. Agricultural Intelligence from almost every district in Scotland, and from feveral in England. The utility and importance of this branch must be evident to every practical Farmer, who, at the moderate price of Two Shillings and Sixpence a quarter, may learn the ftate of the crops, and the price of grain, cattle, &c. in the different parts of the kingdom, befides being enabled to compare his own practice with that in other diftricts, and thus to correct what s improper or deficient.

PUBLIUS SYRUS

This Publication is conducted upon a principle of Selection: It takes no notice of infignificant works, but enters very fully into the difcuffion of those that seem entitled to attention. Combining, in fome meafure, the reprefentative functions of a Review with the independence of original difcuffion; comprehending every foreign Publication which an extenfive Continental correfpondence can procure; and diftinguished by an impartiality which no party-zeal has yet pretended to call in queftion-it lays claim to the fupport of those who are not fatisfied with the indolent and indifcriminating profufion of our other Journals.

The Editors were filent upon these pretenfions, till they faw how the Public was likely to receive them. Their fuccefs has been much beyond their expectation, and, they believe, beyond any former example. In fpite of the fize of their Volume, the remotenefs of their fituation, and all the difadvantages of inexperience, they were enabled, even in their Second Number, to equal the circulation of feveral of the established Journals of the metropolis; and they have been convinced, by the conftant increase of the demand, that, to fecure the patronage of the Public, it is only neceffary to deferve it by a diligent and confcientious discharge of their duty. To every Number is annexed a complete Lift of all the new Publications in the preceding quarter. This Catalogue will contain by far the earliest and most comprehenfive account of modern literature that has yet been presented to the Public.

MEDICAL AND

SURGICAL

JOURNAL.

No. I. II. III. & IV. for the Year 1805.
Exhibiting a Concife View of the Lateft and moft Important
Discoveries in Medicine, Surgery and Pharmacy.

(PUBLISHED QUARTERLY.)

The object of the EDINBURGH MEDICAL and SURGICAL JOURNAL, is the improvement of Medicine, by collecting the scattered hints, and registering the important facts connected with Medical Science and Medical Practice.

After the experience of a year, the Editors have the fatisfaction to find their labours In the departments allotted to Original rewarded by the approbation of the Public. Communications, and to Miscellaneous Intelligence on Medical Subjects, the refpectability of the affiftance they have received, has furpafled even their moft fanguine expectations; and they have every reason to believe that it will increafe with the increasing fale of their Work. In the prefent volume, are contained communications from Profeffors Monro junior, Pacchioni, Rutherford, and Stringham; Drs Badham, Barclay, Bateman, Bostock, Caffels, Clanny, De Roches, Drew, Duncan junior, Inglis, Kellie, Lubbock, M Gregor, Marcet, R. Pearfon, Reeve, Robinson, Rofs, Spens, and Wood; and Meffrs Barlow, Carmichael, Coates, Collins, Aftley Cooper, Dalrymple, Fabbroni, Livingstone, Lucas, M'Mullin, Robertson, and Rumfey; befides articles from other Correfpondents, whose names would add to the reputation of the Journal, if the Editors were at liberty to divulge them. That portion of their work appropriated to Medical Literature, they have endeavoured to render interesting and inftructive, by combining impartial analysis, with original difquifition. The extent of their Continental connexions, and the number of valuable publications at home, will at all times fupply them with fuch an ample store of materials, that their principal difficulty will confift in selection.

The authors of British publications analyzed, are, Sir J Banks, Bart. Drs Adams, Boftock, Brown, Cox, Currie, Harrifon, Heberden, Haygarth, Kinglake, Kirby, and Trotter; Meffrs Abernethy, Carlisle, Edlin, Home, Whately, and Wilkinson; and of foreign publications, M. M. Barthez, Celliez, Dupleffy, Federe, Görcke, Mahon, Maunoir, Proft, Rush, Scarpa, Soemmering, Tavares, and Willdenow; befides the works of feveral refpectable Medical Societies and Public Institutions, both foreign and domestic.
