Princes, Warriors, and Statesmen, from every Nation of Europe, not merely with the common rites of hospitality, but with embraces of the most cordial love, amity, and peace; their brows crowned with laurels glorious as our own, their language and demeanour combining to conciliate and to cement the most

enduring friendship ; having, as it should seem, but one heart, one wish, one object, in common with ourselves gracious and kind, and affable to all

Dum hæc loquimur,
Concurrunt læti obviam cupedinarii omnes,

Cetarii, lanii, coqui, fartores, piscatores, aucupes.-
May the return of these illustrious Sovereigns to their own dominions
be as auspicious and happy, as their friendly visit has been exhila-
rating and delightful to the Realms of England! May the trumpet of
war, and the clang of arms, no more be heard ainong their subjects ;

may the peaceful lute alone cheer and animate their cultivation of the arts of humanity!

The other circumstance, which dilates every British heart with transport, is the safe and felicitous return of our great and beloved Hero;

En hujus nati auspiciis nostra inclyta Roma,

Imperium terris, animos æquabit Olympo. He is arrived, to receive a Nation's Praise, a Nation's Gratitude and long may he enjoy them! It is not our province to descant on his transcendant talents ; nor would it become us to specify his claims to the almost innumerable laurel-wreaths which surround his person and adorn his paths.—But it is peculiarly consistent in us, to give him the praise of being the harbinger of that tranquil and serene light, which promises in future security and encouragement to those pursuits, employments, and studies, to which for so long a series of years we have consecrated our time, our talents, our hopes, and our most enthusiastic ardour. It is the contemplation of this pleasing image, that enables us to throw aside, we trust for ever, the weight and the gloom which, though never rising to despondency, made us sympathize with the sufferings of our own and of all the Nations of Europe. The clouds are happily, and, as far as human sagacity can determine, effectually dispersed. We return with renewed ardour to our Scientific and Litea rarary occupations, which indeed have always been in progress, though sometimes, perhaps, a little retarded by causes which have more or less given pain to every honest heart.-It now remains to listen to the Muse of Victory ; to improve, adorn, and multiply the Arts of Peace; to extend the illuminations of Science in every direction

Hæ nobis erunt artes. We conclude, therefore, with first felicitating our Readers on the glorious termination of the sanguinary scenes of War; and with the repetition of our assurances, that every exertion of Genius, every improvement of Science, every contribution of Learning, will, as heretofore, receive our countenance, our encouragement, and our warmest gratitude. June 1914.
